Dany’s Romantic Getaway-Ocean view studio apartment is a lovely place to relax amongst locals when visiting Bermuda. I was looking for a spotlessly clean and cozy place directly facing water (ocean or bay) with modern amenities and away from tourist crowds. After reviewing 200+ vocational rentals and hotel listings, I chose Dany’s studio and it did not disappoint! She helped managed all the communications and ensured I had a seamless experience before and after arriving the studio. The studio is actually more beautiful than portrayed. From the modern finishings and appliances, the thoughtful supplies (folding luggage racks, hanging closet shelves, bedside extension chargers, and more) to the layout of the studio, Dany spares no detail in making his place a home away from home. The studio has a private balcony as well as an indoor alcove which doubles as a sunroom — both spaces overlooking Mangrove Bay! Also, the studio is centrally located within Somerset village. There are banks, convenience store, liquor store, restaurants, gym, post office and more within 3-min walking distance from the apartment. A grocery store (The Marketplace) is located within 10-min walking distance. Trips outside Somerset Village can be achieved via bus, ferry, car rental, scooter, or taxi. Since taxi service is expensive in Bermuda, traveling via other methods are recommended. There is a bus stop located in front of Dany’s studio and bus passes can be purchased from the nearby post office during the weekday. With that said, this studio will not be the ideal location for anyone primarily looking for a Hamilton city center or St. George’s experience unless he/she has a car or scooter. The studio is 35-min from Hamilton city and 55-min from St. George’s via car (one-way). This means long commute times via bus or one-way taxi fares between $50-$70. Otherwise, if you want to enjoy tranquility in a thoughtfully organized, spotlessly clean and modern apartment in Bermuda and proximity to Hamilton or St. George is not a factor, look no further than Dany’s Romantic Getaway Ocean view studio!
Bermuda is lovely, and Jody's hospitality and charming apartment made our visit a wonderful one. Husband and I prefer not to stay at resorts or hotels, so this apartment was a logical choice. Jody checked in on us periodically, and to answer our questions and help sort out transportation passes. The apartment is tastefully decorated, had all the kitchen/linen supplies we needed for a 6 night stay, and was clean and spacious. The location is steps away from the bus stop, post office, liquor store, pharmacy, ATM machine, and a bar/grill, and we utilized them all. The stroll to Somerset Long Bay Beach was an easy 10-15 minute walk, and since it was April, we had the beach to ourselves, if you don't count the sea turtles that popped up their heads just a few yards away from where we were swimming. (Bring water shoes--there is broken glass on the beach.) The start of the Railway Trail is also a short walk away--the gorgeous views from Fort Scaur are worth it! Explore the neighborhood, since there are lush flowers and water views all around. Pour yourselves some Gosling's, sit on the apartment's balcony, and enjoy the view across the way.
