I've lost count. Our upcoming trip may mark our 18th visit to Barbara and Eldon's place. Or, it may not - it may be our 20th visit. In any case, it's the only place we've stayed since finding it many years ago.
Sound View Cottage has everything we look for in a relaxing beach/ocean destination: 1.) location and easy access, 2.) cleanliness, 3.) beautiful ocean vistas, and 4.) cost efficiency.
It's so easy to stock up on grocery staples upon arrival and enjoy marvelous Bermudian hospitality throughout your stay.
Accommodations are efficiency units (two-burner cooktop, small fridge, coffee maker, microwave - fully equipped). A barbeque grill is outside on the pool deck.
After several nights of eating out (at terrific places: The Dining Room, Rustico, Island Cuisine, Chopstix, House of India, etc.) it's nice to stay home and enjoy the sunset with a cocktail and a grilled dinner.
The pool and putting green are extra pluses (and lots of fun). With only 3 units, you're secluded in a private neighborhood with stunning harbor views.
Minutes away from Horseshoe Bay (down the hill and just across the street) and the many cozy coves along the South Shore.
Luxury? No. Not in the typical sense of the word. But if you like privacy, beauty and peacefulness, this could be all the luxury you'll ever need.
Rent a double scooter for two and you're off!
