Review from Nova Scotia - we thoroughly enjoyed "Ponder's End Cottage". Thanks Sara & Naomi for all your information which was very helpful. Touring beautiful Bermuda was most enjoyable for all of us! We will certainly recommend your cottage to our friends. Thanks for everything!



Enjoyed listening to the tree frogs and crickets all night long, it was beautiful!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Bermuda could not have been better. Sara and Naomi were kind enough to make arrangements for our transportation to the house. When we arrived Naomi greeted us with Bermuda hospitality. The house was better than we imagined. What a way to spend the week. Centraly located, quaint, close to the ferry, Bermuda sunsets and sunrises from the top porch and lower deck, breakfast in the dining room and plenty of room in the kitchen. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us and nice to know if there were any problems Naomi was close by. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Looking forward to coming back and staying again! Thanks you Sara and Naomi for a memorable vacation!

Feels like home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Can't wait to come back to Ponsers End! The house had everything we needed, very separate rooms for privacy- well stocked kitchen, beach towels and umbrella. The cottage is in the middle of the island and walking distance to public transport. We walked to the grocery store multiple times to purchase food for grilling in the court yard. It was a perfect home base for a perfect stay in sunny Bermuda!

Siamo arrivati al Cottage la sera tardi ... mia moglie ..io ... e la piccola Giada ( 3 anni e mezzo ).. eravamo stanchi ed affamati... Sara ( che purtroppo non ho conosciuto ) e Naomi ci hanno fatto trovare il taxi e la cena !!!!!! E come se non bastasse anche del cibo adatto alla bambina ( sono state così gentili da metterci a disposizione il lettino della figlia e i giochino!!!!!) !!!!!! Naomi è stata gentilissima e molto paziente spostandosi tutto nel dettaglio ( il nostro inglese non è dei migliori ). Una persona deliziosa che per tutto il soggiorno si è presa cura di noi affermandosi che tutto stesse andando per il meglio!!! Il cottage è bellissimo, come nelle foto... spazioso, pulito e con tutti i comfort .. a 5 minuti a piedi dal supermarket e 5 minuti dalla fermata dell'autobus e del traghetto!! Non mi metto a descrivere quello che abbiamo fatto e la. Bellezza dell' Isola ... vorrei solo ringraziare Sara e Naomi per la loro calorosa accoglienza e per averci fatto sentire come a casa nostra!!!! Grazie di tutto!!!!!!!! Giada Claudia e Michele.

We arrived at the Cottage in the late evening ... ..I ... my wife and the little Jade (3 ½ years) .. we were tired and hungry ... Sara (which I have not known) and Naomi made us find the taxi and dinner !!!!!! And to make matters worse even the food suitable to the child (have been kind enough to provide us the cot daughter and i play !!!!!) !!!!!! Naomi was very kind and very patient moving everything in detail (our English is not the best). A lovely person who throughout the stay took care of us asserting that everything was going well !!! The cottage is beautiful, like the pictures ... spacious, clean and with all amenities .. 5 minutes walk from the supermarket and 5 minutes from the bus stop and the ferry !! I never try to describe what we did and. Beauty of 'Island ... I would just like to thank Sara and Naomi for their warm welcome and for making us feel at home !!!! Thanks for everything!!!!!!!! Giada Claudia and Michele.

Fantastic beginning at the Ponder's End!

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest things about a wonderful vacation is, no surprises, and that was the case on our recent family vacation at Ponder's End! We had been looking forward to our special time away on the wonderful island of Bermuda, and wanted to make sure everything was perfect. Since it was 27 years since my wife and I were last in Bermuda we were cautious about how the island nation may have changed especially since the place we stayed at the last three times we were there had been sold and drastically changed. We wanted the relaxed, laid back, quiet and beautiful experience our memory held from years ago. Thanks to my wife for finding Ponder's End and the beautiful Naomi and Sara who own the property, we were successful. Not only were the pictures and descriptions of the property accurate but were very beneficial to us in making our correct choice in where to stay. The water views and general location of the property was magnificent. A short walk took us to the Ferry, Food Store and Bus Stop. The scooter store was very close and they just picked us up and took us to their shop and the reverse at the end of our stay when returning the bikes. Taxi's were plentiful by either calling or frankly due to the location of Ponder's End we usually got most of our taxi's right out at the corner about twenty yards from the front door. As for eating, we enjoyed the spacious kitchen and table on the many nights we just wanted to relax and eat in. The biggest problem we had on the nights we ate out was choosing which place to go. Again because of the location of this cottage, we could take a taxi anywhere or a ferry ride over to Hamilton to the many restaurants in town. The design of Ponder's End was wonderful for our family of five because my wife and I could go up stairs to our bedroom on the second floor if we wanted to go to bed and our children could stay up down stairs or in their own bedroom without hindering each other. The house was so clean that we tried to keep it just as clean all during our stay so we felt like we just arrived each day. Naomi and Sara were extremely gracious and hospitable. They honestly meant it when they asked us to call with any questions and we did which was wonderful to have that personal touch. My wife and I would highly recommend Ponder's End to anyone, friend, relative or acquaintance looking for a home away from home in Bermuda! There were no surprises here! We had a great time and can't wait to go back again!

Lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Bermuda staying at Ponders End. It's a comfortable and clean home. We were able to utilize public transportation as both the ferry and bus stops are in walking distance. It was helpful that the grocery store was also in walking distance along with a fantastic restaurant, Blu. We also had a wonderful dinner at Marcus' in Hamilton. Naomi and Sarah were so helpful and personable. We felt truly welcomed in their home. We would go back to Ponders End and recommend it to others.

Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent a week at the cottage between April 17th - 24th and had a wonderful time. The cottage was nice, clean and very comfortable. We saw some beautiful sunsets from the patio. Naomi and Sara were very helpful and accommodating when planning our week in Bermuda. They even arranged for a cab to pick us up at the airport. I have been to Bermuda five times, and would definitely stay here again. The location was close to the beaches as well as Hamilton. I would highly recommend this cottage!
