We actually visited Easter 2011 but tripadvisor wouldn't give me the option to chose that date.
We found the cottage to be absolutely delightful. Typical Bermudian cottage with comfortable furnishings. Spacious bedrooms with the most beautiful view over the ocean. Truthfully I would actually like to live there forever, it's my idea of heaven.
It's actually as close to being on the beach without actually being built on the sand. 2 nice sized bedrooms, decent bathroom, comfy lounge/diner, compact kitchen with everything you need - we ate in most of the time with no problems cooking basic family food.
Veranda has beautiful views over the beach & ocean.
The beach is a private beach so very quiet and there is a rock pool at the fat end which is great for little ones to paddle & shallow swim in. The beach is on the north shore so care needs to be taken with the undertow for beginner swimmers. The sunrise is lovely to see over the beach. You can watch it from bed in the master bed - blissful.
It's about a mile walk to the main road which has a bus stop. Buses are pretty regular during the day. You'll need a taxi at night. Nice walk up to the road & the disused rail track is close by for a change of route. It wasn't too hot for us to walk as it was Easter.
There is a supermarket within our walking distance - this is obviously subjective - we are happy to walk 2 or 3 miles to grab groceries whilst on holiday - its a chance to see the sights & sounds of local life.
Car hire in BDA isn't available but buses & taxis & ferries are around.
The owners are absolutely lovely. We had the best time & it won't be too many years before we return.
