About the neighbourhood
A Quiet up-scale neighbourhood. You can see and hear the ocean, which is just a 1/2 Kilometre away. You'll hear the waves lapping at the shore, the bird singing their song and most of all, you'll hear, 'The Quiet'. Our grounds are manicure and we have both flower and vegetable gardens. We also have a small banana patch and passion vines along with other fruit trees. We know all our neighbours and they are all quiet and we respect one an-other's privacy.
Getting around
New last year: Mini Car Rentals for 2 persons. Google, 'Current Vehicles', Bermuda. Mopeds are a good form of transport. We can arrange delivery for you. However, if you are not confident on 2 wheels, we would not recommend that you try this. The roads nowadays are very busy and there appears to be more idiots on the roads each day. Bus: 2 Routes to choose from, going both east and west . Bus stops are a 5 to 7 minute walk away. Pink pole denotes towards Hamilton and Blue poles denote away from Hamilton. Mini-Cars: 'Twizy', for one or two persons only. We have parking on property. Plus we have a charging station which you may charge over night for a minimal fee. Taxis: Sometimes hard to come by, so please book in advance.
