Come and enjoy a cozy pool house in paradise. Our 1 Bed/Bath is located near many beaches on the south shore and it's only 5 minutes from the nearest bus stop. Each day you'll wake up to a beautiful pool and garden right outside your front door!

The space

The pool house is a 1 bed/bath space. The bedroom bed is queen size. The space includes a fully functional kitchen with dishwasher and the living room has a T.V. and a dining table with four chairs. The bedroom includes a closet with a washer and dryer as well as ironing board and hangers. The bathroom has a walk in shower and sink.

We do provide the following - beach, bath and pool towels, robes, body wash and shampoo/conditioner.

Be advised that with concern to grocery shopping, we highly recommend that you ask your taxi driver at the airport to stop at a grocery store before your arrival to the pool house. We suggest this because the grocery store is not as easy to get to without a car or rental moped. You can get to the store by bus, but you will need to purchase bus tickets. We recommend 'Lindo's' or 'Heron Bay Market Place' that are both located in the Warwick parish.

Guest access

The pool house shares a 1 acre property with our main house, but there is plenty of privacy as gardens and trees separate the pool area. There is also a garden behind the pool house with fresh seasonal vegetables. The best feature is our stunning pool. Please note that you will have full access to the pool, but it is a shared space with the main house. The pool is fully gated and has table and chairs as well as lounge chairs.

As we live on an island we do have mosquito's. They are around in larger numbers in the summer months, so we do have citronella candles and tikki torches that are provided to help with the critters.

Interaction with guests

Soniko and I are easily accessible as we live on the property. We handle the rental of the pool house, but the main house/property is a family home. We are a very friendly family and will be around to help as needed.

Other things to note

The last members of our family is two very friendly dogs named 'Cali' and "tori".They are excitable but loving and submissive. In order to get to the pool house, you will need to cross the lawn that they have access too. We would suggest that if you would like to rent the pool house that you are dog friendly as they does freely roam the property.

We do have a bbq outside of the pool house that can be used.

There are dehumidifiers provided because Bermuda is a very humid place and can be damp, especially in the winter months. Please feel free to use as needed as it will help to dry up your room.

If you decide to book with us, in your welcome message can you please provide your flight details and arrival/departure times.

Internet wifi access is available in the kitchen and on the outside table and chairs. Unfortunately it does not reach as far as the living room and bedroom space.

We are happy to house you in the pool house and hope that you enjoy your stay in paradise, but we do expect that you treat the space with respect. As mentioned before we do live in a quiet neighborhood and do not expect to have any exorbitant disturbances.

Please take note that check in is at 3pm and check out is at 11pm. Kindly check with us in advance whether you will try to request an early or late check in. Unfortunately we can't always accommodate changing these times due to the calendar bookings.

There is no smoking allowed in the pool house, but you can feel free to smoke outside. All cigarette butts must be thrown in the trash and not in the garden.

Always be sure to lock the apartment when you leave. There are security camera's on the property for your safety.

Lastly, we do have air conditioners in the living room and bedrooms that can be used. As electricity is quite expensive in Bermuda, we ask that you please be sensitive when using them. We would prefer not to see them being used all day or when you are not physically in the pool house. There are also ceiling fans and plenty of windows to allow air flow.

The pool house is a comfortable clean home from home situated in lovely gardens and very close to the south shore beaches. The pool is lovely to swim in or just sit by and read a book. The interior is furnished in a typically Bermudian way and a nicely kitted out kitchen with everything you need should you wish to self cater. The hosts Soniko and Kara are helpfull with out being intrusive so you really do feel like you are at home on a beautiful island! We would definately book this accomodation again having previously stayed at two hotels and one rental in Bermuda. Ian and Deborah. UK

We've just returned from a 2 week stay at Kara and Soniko's pool house in Bermuda. The property is lovely, set in the beautiful grounds of a family home. The accommodation is great, bigger than shown in the photos and with all of the amenities that make it a home from home experience. It's really comfortable so you can spend days relaxing there and not feel like you have to be out exploring the island all of the time. The pool is gorgeous. It's shared with the family but you really feel like it's your own. And as for their lovely dog Calli, she's gorgeous and friendly and will come and wag her tail and say hello. The location is great. 5 mins walk from the bus stop which takes you to Hamilton or The Dockyard (& all the stops in between), several restaurants and a lovely little beach at Church Bay. There's also a scooter hire place 5 mins walk away and we'd recommend you hire a scooter as its a great way to see the Island and get about. The nearest supermarket is about 10mins drive away on Middle Road. This is a really well stocked place where you can get everything you'd need to cook anything for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Above all of this, we can't express enough what lovely and considerate people Kara and Soniko are. We unfortunately were in Bermuda when Hurricane Nicole hit the Island. Being from the UK we've not experienced this before so were very apprehensive. Kara and Soniko not only reassured us, but invited us to their home and spent the day with us during the Hurricane. They moved us to a lovely hotel for several nights while the power was out over the Island so we had a comfortable few days to enjoy while the power was sorted after the hurricane. Unfortunately the pool was full of debris following the Hurricane, so they offered to move us back to a hotel so we'd have a pool to use. But with such excellent hosts and lovely beaches around us, we decided to stay at the Pool House. They went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay despite the hurricane and we're so grateful for their friendly and considerate natures. We have no hesitation in recommending The Pool House, and Soniko and Kata's hospitality, if you want a great stay in Bermuda.

We received a warm welcome from Soniko when we arrived at the pool house. The pool house is exactly as described and was very clean, comfortable, spacious but cosy at the same time. It was very well furnished and equipped with lovely touches such as the luxury toiletries, and very comfy bath robes. We asked if a driver could meet us at the airport to transport us to the pool house, and Soniko arranged this for us. A lovely lady called Elaine was waiting for us when we cleared customs, and we booked Elaine for the return journey too. Soniko and his family made us feel so welcome during the whole of our stay, and were really helpful with suggestions. As such, we really made the most of our time during our stay. We had a 'bucket list' of things we wanted to do / see / achieve during our holiday and we surpassed our expectations by a mile. Even though we were so busy during our stay, we had the most relaxed and chilled time and this will be a holiday that we will always look back on with fondness. We fell in love with the Island and the people of Bermuda - who are so lovely, friendly and kind. It was a lovely time of year to visit as the main season hadn't yet started; hence the beaches and tourist attractions were uncrowded. We walked a lot of the local area, to get a real feel of Southampton; including walking Church Road over to Middle Road and Lighthouse Road to the small harbour at Waterlot, where there is another lovely restaurant. Further up Middle Road, in Heron Bay, there is a supermarket that we used for provisions. It was a long walk but when you have all day to spend at leisure, and the weather is beautiful, it was such a pleasure to stroll there and back. We used the local buses and ferries to get around, and also hired a boat to explore the waters by sea. The Oracle team were out on the waters at the same time and it was fascinating to see them in action. We also saw lots of turtles :) There is a lovely 3 par golf course within walking distance of the pool house, plus some lovely eateries. There is also a moped rental service a short walk from the pool house, but in the end, we just didn't need to hire them as we'd gotten everywhere by other means. The location of the pool house, the wonderful hosts and Bermuda itself makes for a wonderful combination and if you are considering this property, don't hesitate, book it ... you won't be disappointed - quite the reverse !!!

The host made us feel very welcome assisting with a cab pre booked from the airport,to the welcome card and drink in the pool house. It has everything you would need for a vacation stay. The area is close to the beaches and bus stop. It also has a moped rental shop within a 5 min walk and is in a central location to get around the island. Would recomend if asked without hesitation.

We had the most wonderful relaxing holiday staying at the pool house. The setting is simply beautiful, the property is very comfortable and well equipped and all the family charming and extremely helpful. We were treated like good friends and nothing was too much trouble. The pool house is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, close to the bus stops and some of the best beaches on the island. We simply cannot speak highly enough of seeing Bermuda from this perspective. Everyone on the island was so friendly and showed genuine interest in making sure visitors were happy. Keith, Suzette, Kara and Soniko, a huge thank you to you all for looking after us so well, making us feel welcome and going out of your way to help us have the most fantastic holiday, despite some very challenging weather on a few days. The children loved the pool and our little visitors and Cali was delightful and adored by us all. We experienced a little slice of heaven!

We absolutely loved our stay at Sonika and Kara's place. It is just like they show in the pictures. We had the pool to ourselves all week...like our own private retreat. The bed was comfortable fro sleeping and the space was great for hanging out. We don't cook a lot on vacation usually just breakfast so I can't really comment on kitchen. For us it was perfect...cork screw, wine glasses, coffee pot and toaster. The location on the island is also great...The south shore beaches are walking distance (about 1 to 1 1/2 miles) and multiple restaurants. If buying bus tickets/passes for the week it is cheaper to buy a book of tickets versus the weekly pass. We did not realize until right after we purchased (a local in the post office told us) and they would not exchange. Also the buses are a bit slow to get around so if you are comfortable on scooters you can really see a lot of the island. We could not have been happier with our choice and would recommend to anyone who asked.
