Overview

About the property

Self-catering fully-equipped beachfront studio apartment at Marley Beach

Breathtaking beach and ocean views, centrally located, convenient to public transportation and only 10 minutes from Hamilton. This large beachfront studio apartment is only steps away from Marley Beach, a romantic, secluded, private beach on Bermuda's famous and beautiful South Shore. Sand Pebble Studio has a fully-equipped kitchen, a large bed/sitting room with king sized bed, dining table/chairs, flat-screened TV, patio with umbrella, table, chairs and barbecue. Beach chairs are provided.

Marley Beach with its pink sands and crystal clear waters has some of the best snorkeling in the area. Other area attractions include nearby restaurants, parks, Elbow and Horseshoe Beaches, Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, golf, tennis.

Year-round, the sunrises are spectacular. Marley Beach Cottages was previously a small hotel, but Sand Pebble Studio is the only beachfront studio apartment currently available to visitors.

Sand Pebble Studio at Marley and Special Times: Marley Beach Cottages was a well-known, small, intimate, casual and convenient hotel in years past. Ownership changed recently and it is no longer operating as a hotel. The current owner - Steve (son of June Stanton) and familiar to past guests of Marley, has renovated Sand Dollar and Sea Song both two bedroom cottage, and, Sand Pebble Studio. All three are are currently available to short term visitor rentals.

WHALE WATCH FROM YOUR PATIO!! From about mid-April through to end of mid May, you can enjoy watching for whales and their calves as they overnight just offshore for protection from predators. Seeing the whales breaching and blowing is an experience that leaves you feeling privileged indeed! BOOK EARLY for those weeks!

Making Memories: Many memories have been made at Marley. The beach was made famous in quite a few movies, including Chapter 11 and The Deep.

During the winter months, Bermuda's temperature range 68 - 72. There are many times when the temperature is in the mid 70s and on the South Shore, it feels like 75, with calm, sparkling waters, clear skies and warm breezes. Perfect weather for the beach, golfing, tennis, walking and more.

'Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away'.

All year the sunrises, clear turquoise waters, moon rises, and rainbow glimpses will certainly take your breath away when you visit us at Sand Pebble Studio at Marley Beach.

Golf, Tennis, and nearby Dining: Golf can be arranged at Riddell's Bay Golf Club, Mid Ocean Club, Port Royal Golf Course, Ocean View Golf Course, Belmont Hills and more. Ask us about this before you arrive, as tee times can be made in advance.

Nearby tennis courts include the ones at Elbow Beach Hotel and Fairmont Southampton Princess Hotel.

Restaurants within 10 minutes are: Henry VIII, Tio Pepe, Waterlot Inn, Bacci's, Swizzle Inn West, The Seahorse Grill at Elbow Beach Hotel, and Mickeys on the Beach at Elbow, Cafe Lido, Mickey's, Paraquet, Fourways Inn, Beau Rivage at Newstead, Blue (at the refurbished Belmont Golf Course) and Island Cuisine at Riddell's Bay.

Paradise on a Platter

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Diana and Handsome Steve,

Thank you for facilitating our "Once-in-a-lifetime" visit to the very special island of Bermuda. And what a spectacular location! Not just another pebble on another beach, Sand Pebble at Marley Beach is a truly idyllic location - thank you for giving us paradise on a platter. Thank you also for being the host and hostess with the mostest - your special blend of elegance, charm and generosity of spirit was very much appreciated.

Love and kisses

Lovely view

  • 3 of 5

Sand Pebble Studio is a modest but pleasant accommodation for two people. It has an amazing view of private Marley Beach and the Atlantic Ocean on Bermuda's South Shore. This is without a doubt the best feature of the unit. Property manager Gordon Henry is friendly and helpful. A complimentary cell phone for guests' use is a considerate item.

The tiny kitchen is adequate but has some deficiencies. For those with physical limitations, please be aware that the property is located up a steep slope from the road where the bus stops. Also, the path to the lovely beach is down a very steep hill, though there are handrails for greater safety.

Nice spot for a visit

  • 4 of 5

While the accommodations were fine, Bermuda is just not to our taste. Perhaps if we had gone in the summer and could have partaken in swimming, etc., it would have been more fun. As it is, the prices astounded us and it seems that the main thing to do is shop at expensive stores. Not our cup of tea.

The property was as described but the kitchen equipment (plates, pots, etc) left something to be desired.

The bus and ferry service were the most fun. People are so friendly.

The weather was not up to par until the day we left, when it was glorious. Alas.

Confortable apartment; convenient location; great beach and ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sand Pebble for six nights in early Sept. 2016 to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Had been to Bermuda a handful of times over the years and our priority was to be on a South Shore beach. The unit is very comfortable - excellent bed, A/C, wiFi, small kitchen, plenty of towels. There are sliding glass doors onto a lawn/patio with stunning views of the ocean and private beach below. Plenty of seating choices outdoors to read, have a drink, eat. The beach below is essentially empty. The usual talcum powder sand framed by rock outcroppings. The surf varied over the week from gentle to rough. Our only issue was the maybe 50 plus stairs down to the beach - not something that we wanted to do more than once per day. There are good handrails but it is steep. we carried the supplied beach chairs and umbrella down the stairs for the day and were the only ones on the beach most days. The beach is stunning - so nice and private that we never bothered with going to Horseshoe Bay (and fighting the cruise tourists) or even our other favorites - Jobson's or Warwick Long Bay.

The location is on the South Shore Road which is down a small hill from the unit. Bus stops either direction immediately at entrance, very convenient service to Hamilton (15-20 minutes) or Dockyards (40-45 minutes). Recommend unlimited bus/ferry passes based on number of days you will be there. One nice day was bus to Dockyards/wander around/ferry to St. George/Wander around/lunch then bus to Hamilton/transfer and bus back in time to still hit beach for a couple of hours. Decent sized grocery store ~ one mile on South Shore Road towards Hamilton; we had taxi stop there for a few minutes on way in from airport. Only restaurant within walking distance in Swizzle Inn - perfectly nice bar food plus but no A/C. We took $10 taxi cabs a couple of times to restaurants in that part of the island, or bus into/out of Hamilton, for dinner.

We would highly recommend Sand Pebble if you don't need daily housekeeping, an on-site restaurant or a beach without stairs.

Beautiful view and good location

  • 4 of 5

Excellent view of beach and the sea from the studio. The studio was well equipped, and adequate for our needs, however we were not as isolated nor the studio as luxurious as the photos show.

Paradise Revisited!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I returned to Bermuda for our 15th wedding anniversary. We rented the Sand Pebble for a week. It was perfect for the 2 of us. The view is breathtaking, and the location is convenient to beaches, restaurants and some of Bermuda's famous sites. We rented a scooter and traveled all over the island, coming "home" each night to our beautiful studio. The new bedroom set and a brand new refrigerator were delivered this week while we were out sight seeing, making it even more attractive. We had a large enough kitchen to prepare several dinners, and had the choice of either eating inside or outside while listening to the sounds of the ocean. The private beach is gorgeous, and we found ourselves alone there most every day. You can sit in your beach chair (provided with the studio) and watch the parrot fish nibbling on the reef 10 feet away! Gordon, the property manager is very knowledgeable about everything on the island, and is very helpful and friendly. You will find little touches, like beach towels, a cell phone to use, champagne glasses, a cooler for taking a picnic down to the beach and so much more. We will definitely be back! Thank you Steve and Gordon for making this trip so memorable.

Car: not necessary

Sand Pebble Studio is a short walk down a path and some steps to our own private Marley Beach, situated right between two of Bermuda's most famous beaches -- Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay. It is nestled between two parks -- Astwood Park and Southlands. You can quickly and easily explore Bermuda by taxi, bus, or moped from our central location. In the summertime, your vacation will be perfect as you snorkel the crystal clear water and watch the parrot fish and others on the shore front or outer reefs. Everything the vacationer could desire is nearby, including spas, tennis, golf, fine and casual dining and more. Wintertime is special in Bermuda, and if it's fine weather in January and February, you can still swim as well as enjoy strolling, birdwatching, golf, tennis and more. Those who have visited before know that Marley Beach is one of those truly magical places where memories are made that you will treasure forever!
