The Brightside Guest Apartments are very nice. Located in Flatts, Bermuda, they are right at a central point of the island, and a nice spot. The marina and Flatts Bridge are always bustling with people and boats, and provide very nice views from the apartments. The apartments all have (shared) verandas, with nice wicker chairs outside. We stayed in a top floor room, it was a one bedroom suite. We had a main living room area which had a couch, TV, table with 4 chairs, and a coffee table. There was a large bathroom, and a small kitchen with a large refrigerator, several cabinets with dishes and glasses and silverware in them, a stove, a microwave, and a coffeepot. There was a separate bedroom with a double bed, dresser, and closet. The place was generally clean, however, there were some small things that could have easily been fixed and/or enhanced, that would have made this place much better, in my opinion (e.g. handles on dresser drawers broken, dresser drawers cleaned/lined, matching silverware/dishes/glasses, updated paintings on the wall). The owners are a delight- Mr. Lightbourne is always checking up on you whenever you see him- and he or someone in his family is always around- and is so nice and answers all questions... like everyone else on Bermuda, just a joy to talk to. All in all, the place was nowhere near a luxury hotel that you will find in Bermuda, but for a newlywed couple who would have been happy sleeping on the beach for a low price, this did the trick! We would stay again. Also, there is a new building being constructed behind our building that looked very nice- lots of little verandas, a bright color, and right over the pool.
