Overview

About the property

'Beach House' was built from Bermuda stone, quarried across the street, in the late 1800s. It has been expanded and maintained over the years, ensuring that its unique charm is preserved without sacrificing comfort. Cozy bedrooms have Bermuda cedar beams, the dining room is cedar paneled, and the living area is open and spacious. A full country style kitchen with island and eat at table looks out onto the back courtyard, and the front patio offers space you will use everyday. 'Beach House' is also just steps from the private Marley Beach. Conveniently, it is directly on the South Shore bus route, there being stops directly at the property gate.

Great Location, Private Beach, Old Style Bermuda House

  • 4 of 5

This is a split review with lots of 5 stars and a few 3 stars (all of which are very correctable).

Here are the 5 stars. The location on the South Shore Rd is great. Access to a private beach is wonderful and unique. The house is roomy and clean. The master suite has a terrific walk in shower. The other 2 bedrooms are quite comfortable as is the large living area. The patio on the side of the house is large and a perfect place to greet the morning. Importantly, the property manager, Gordon is quite responsive to any issue - large and small - that arises. So, it is absolutely a house that I would definitely want to rent again if they would just fix a few things - which leads to the 3 star part of our stay - the small things that make a vacation really great (especially ones that charge a premium price). Specifically, there was no facial tissue in any of the bathrooms and the soap bars in the showers were the small hotel size bar. These my seem minor, but when you fly in and stop at a small grocery to pick up a few food items - the last thing you think you need are facial tissue and bar soap. In addition, the glassware was mostly plastic with all plastic wineglasses. Another reviewer mentioned the wine glasses. A 5 star rental has real glassware - including wine glasses.

So, for now it gets a 4 star rating. Once the things I mentioned are corrected, there is no question it is a 5 star house.

Where Bermuda is Timeless

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I together with another couple spent a glorious week at the Beach House to re-live our separate honeymoons 50 years ago. While the island has changed since 1966/67, the ambience of this property re-creates the lifestyle that we so enjoyed at the start of our marriages. The beach is wonderful in its privacy and its perfect sand and surf. It is only a minute’s walk down a grassy path to the stairway and the uniquely blue water. The house has that timeless feel of comfort, space and graciousness that reflects Bermuda’s allure.

The earlier reviews don’t need to be repeated concerning the amenities and location of the house. Perhaps we can add some assurance about the service aspect of the experience. We had an issue with the phone line to the house likely caused by a lot of telecoms work being done for the America’s Cup. Gordon, the intrepid property manager, set up the repair and offered the wi-fi at his nearby office as internet access in a pinch. He then delivered a gift certificate from the owners for the Swizzle Inn to sooth any residual angst. Now that’s island grace.

One location advantage not mentioned in earlier reviews is the access to Southlands beach, just to the east of Marley Beach by maybe 200 yards. It is broader than Marley and free of any exposed rocks in the water. The entry road is an abandoned driveway but it is a beach open to the public and as pretty as any on the south shore. For hikers, you can go across South Road and go up Rocklands Road to reach the RailTrail and enjoy ocean views and a non-tourist sense of island life as well as some leafy pathways.

Some small steps towards perfection: plastic glasses don’t work for champagne toasts, some swim goggles might be nice, a second beach umbrella would accommodate two couples better. The minor nature of these improvements highlights the overall quality of the The Beach House.

Great Laid Back Vacation House

  • 4 of 5

The Beach House at Marley Beach was a great house for enjoying an easy going vacation in Bermuda. It was well appointed and clean with plenty of room to relax. The photos of the home give you a good idea of what to expect, not luxurious just wonderfully comfortable. The semi-private beach was incredibly beautiful. The house is well located on South Road and across the street from the bus stop and the bus that will take you to most of the well-known beaches or to Hamilton and the ferries. Steve and Gordon could not have been nicer. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer.

If I owned a vacation home in Bermuda, it would be this house.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our 7-day stay at the "Beach House" located at Marley Beach. We loved it and will be back!!! We rented other homes in Bermuda in prior years, but this has been the best house so far. The house is very cozy and because of its library room, beautiful wall art, décor items, plants around the house, and fully equipped kitchen, it feels like a real home. To me, it was important that the house was very clean. The bedding, pillows and towels were all super clean and looked new. The kitchen had every plate, pot and utensil you ever need to cook. We did a lot of BBQ’ing as well. Our kids – ages 5 and 8 – had plenty of room to play inside the house and the outside patio area. The patio was one of my favorite places to relax after a full day on the beach, gaze at the stars at night and enjoy family conversations. The private beach is a minute walk away. Marley Beach is very clean and spacious, and we happened to be the only ones using it every time we went there. Depending on the wind, the waves can be a bit rough there and there are some rocks you have to watch out when entering the water, but the privacy and beauty of the beach compensate for that. Stops for Bus #7 are right next to the house. I really recommend this house and thank Gordon and the owners for making our stay so enjoyable and comfortable.

Fantastic week

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a great location. The description and pictures are accurate, the house was in order, and clean. Gordon greeted us upon arrival and answered all of our questions.

The Swizzle Inn is walking distance from the property and is an excellent place for dinner and Rum Swizzles.

We bought the weekly bus passes from Gordon and would highly recommend them. There is a stop right outside the house that will take you towards either Hamilton (pink pole) or the Dockyards and beaches (blue pole). Be patient until you figure out the schedule. You will be using the #7 line. Locals use the bus and are more than willing to help out.

Taxi's are abundant, but will get expensive throughout the week ($25+ to Hamilton from the house). Take a taxi from the airport though. It will run approx. $50 (cash) but you can stop at the grocery store on the way in from the airport.

Marley Beach is private and beautiful. I suggest visiting nearby Horseshoe Bay beach, but you really only need Marley for a true Bermuda beach experience.

We were a family of 4 (my wife and 13 and 15 y/o) and had more than enough room! I would recommend this property to family and friends.
