Perfect beach vaca?

Looking for the perfect beach vacation - white sand, blue water and a room with French doors opening to a small private pool next to the beach. I know, I've watched too many movies :). Has anyone found this spot?

I notice in your Caribbean post that you intend to go in January/February. Those months are not beach weather months on Bermuda.

As noted above...if you're hoping for the stereotyoical tropic '..island/beach..' sort of expreience in January/February then you'll have to look farther south in the tropic Caribbean, Mexico or Central America. Bermuda is a SEMI-tropic destination (situated approx. 650 miles due east of the North-South Carolinas border. January / February are solidly within Bermuda's winter/off-season....Great for golf, tennis, hiking, biking, lounging with a good book and leisurely luncheons...but not exactly '..beach weather..'

You've certainly described an idylic location and ambience but...if your plans are for a visit during the warmer months in Bermuda (mid-May-thru-mid-October) perhaps you might also provide the sort of proposed BUDGET you might have for your island/beach Nirvanah ??

The rtelatively new '..Pool Suites..' with small, private pool at the CAMBRIDGE BEACHES resort, alsong Bermuda's western shore, come to mind--

CAMBRIDGE BEACHES--

Another possibility might be either the one-bedroom Beachfront Suite or the stand-alone, '..Bird of Paradise..' cottage at the Elbow Beach Hotel...though no private pool out in the patio...merely the world famous Elbow Beach and the Atlantic Ocean--.

And though a private rental property (but with no private pool) you might also have a look at this more moderate alternative--

'..SAND PEBBLES..' Beach Front Studio Apt. at Marley Beach--

P.S.....though not "..many movies.."....over the years two major films--'The Deep (can you match Jacqueline Bisset in a wet t-shirt??) and Neil Simon's 'Chapter Two') used Marley Beach for dsome of the Bermuda 'exteriors' in them.
