private secluded rental suggestion

Anyone know of a romantic private secluded rental for 2 people with access to a private beach area in October? (no resorts or hotels)

Already tried bermudarentals and they rented the property we had chosen to someone else. And dont see anything suitable with availability on bermudagetaway.

It's our anniversary with no children, so looking for quiet seclusion !!

thanks

Got any sort of budget per night for this "..romantic private rental.."??...and perhaps to avoid duplication of your first preference rental property..it might be useful to indicate which one it was ??

Check out this Bermuda Rentals listing at the old Marley Beach Cottages property...with one of the best locations on Bermuda's magnificent south shore--

C93--

www.bermudarentals.com/prop.php?lc=C&code=93

OR...these listings--

W02 (detailed in a previous thread)--

www.bermudarentals.com/prop.php?lc=W&code=02

C37--

W02 was our first choice, which they gave away

we are considering C37, which looks lovely but the apt. is attached to the owners house and the beach is available to other local residents - so no real guarantee of privacy

the other is a bit above our budget

any other private rentals other than these agencies?

thanks

You might want to take a look at Coldwell Banker Bermuda. They have a house called "Felicity" in Sandys with a small beach. Some regulars on this forum rented it a couple of times and seemed very happy with it.

Just noticed your comment about C37 being above your budget so Felicity will not suit either.

I think maybe that you are going to have to rethink either your budget or your desire for beach and privacy. Not too realistic imho.

>>> the apt. is attached to the owners house and the beach is available to other local residents - so no real guarantee of privacy<<<

Entirely separate, private rental cottage/house accommodations, on entirely private beaches in Bermuda are going to be very scarce...perhaps rare. If the prices of some of the listings from Bermuda Rentals are out of your 'comfort zone'...even if you did find a private cottate/house with a private beach...the odds are probably slim-to-none that it would "..suit.." your proposed budget.

In so far as other local residents having access to a '..neighborhood..' beach....how many local residents do you suppose might live in the area ??...and how many of them do you suppose have the leisure to '..go to the beach..' ??...When not occupied with work, and other necessary jobs and responsibilities of '..real life..' they may well have better things to do with their time. Not everyone is '..on vacation..'.

To the best of my knowledge, none of the other Bermuda real estate agencies that handle vacation rentals will have anything on their books that will suit your proposed budget 'comfort zone'.

For what it's worth to you, I'm pretty sure that the C37 property is located between Brimstone Hill Road and Vicker's Bay Road...off of the South Road...just beyond the eastern edge of Paget Parish...just across the boundry line into Devonshire Parish.. The small, neighborhood beach near the property is known as VICKER'S BAY..a short walk (approx. 200 yards) down the hill. This is a VERY NICE neighborhood.

So we decided to go with C37, but when i sent Bermuda Rentals all our confimation details, they replied back that the owner has changed their mind and will not take the booking which is less than 5 nights (although last Friday they said our 3 night booking was ok...)

So we're batting zero here. The search starts again.

You've got a couple of choices:

1.)...You can increase your proposed budget to accommodate your preferences and priorities.

2.)...You can review, redefine and perhaps alter your preferences and priorities to better suit your proposed budget.

Is "..access to a private beach.." really necessary ?? Frankly, in Bermuda, it's not all that difficult to find semi-secluded, rock-crenellated coves and beaches, that you can have pretty much all to yourselves for the better part of a day from among the entirely public south shore beaches...especially during October...'..shoulder season..'. We manage to do it during June/July...at the peak of Bermuda's high/summer season. Admittedly, you may well have to travel from your guest accommodation to get to 'em...but surprisingly, this is usally pretty pleasant in Bermuda...especially if rental motor scooter(s) is your preferred mode of personal transport during your visit.

Just noticed that there's a new listing on www.bermudagetaway.com It's called Quarterdeck Cabin but there's no information page yet. Just an empty availability calendar. Might be worth watching for the info to be posted.
