John Smiths Bay is a well kept local secret- a quiet beach with deep soft pink sands that slope into quiet waters without the buffeting of heavy wave action or undertows. Locals like to take huge picnic baskets to the beach in the early evening when all the tourists have disappeared back to their hotels: dinner is served on a blanket on the sand as the sun goes down and the stars come out. Youíll meet some very pleasant well-fed neighbors if you choose to join them, bobbing about like corks in the gentle swells at the end of the day. Smiths Parish is adjacent to the Hamilton Parish enclave of the rich and famous in Tuckers Town- youíll enjoy touring this area with its magnificent homes, vast wooded hills and the sweeping golf courses.

There is a bus stop heading west to Hamilton just a couple of minutes walk from the property, across from Watch Hill Park. There is another bus stop down by Harrington Hundreds Grocery which is a fine food emporium, distinguishing themselves by offering a full delivery service including beer, wine and spirits. Bus stops heading east towards St. Georgeís or the airport are on the propertyís side of South Road, across from Watch Hill Park. John Smithís beach is about a 10 minute walk from the house. The Specialty Inn, a family style restaurant with delicious hamburgers, is about a 5 minutes ride down South Road at the crossroads of South Shore Road and Collectorís Hill. You may see movie stars here too: its down-home atmosphere belies the delicious local fare that is served here.

Flatts Village is also about a 5 minutes ride away: Rustico, one of the best Italian restaurants on the island is located in the village, as is Pizza Chef (which delivers). The 1926 Aquarium, small zoo and museum can also be found in Flatts: a delectable, small scale exploration of what the island is and has been in the past. The tidal wash under the little bridge at Flatts and the outlet from Harrington Sounds is always interesting to observe. Other good restaurants in the area would include Tom Mooreís Tavern, Ariel Sands and the dining at Pink Beach.

St. Markís Anglican church and St. Patrickís Catholic church also about 5 minutes ride from here on South Road. The South Shore Road in this area heading east toward John Smithís and Tuckerís Town (Mid Ocean Golf Club) is relatively quiet, as itís not a major through road, so itís great for walking along the coastal road admiring ocean views at every turn.

Spittal Pond Nature Reserve is only 5 minutes walk from the house and is an extraordinary park in that migratory birds flock to the marsh, sunk between the coastal hills and the ridge along which the South Road meanders. The quiet is absolute and the collection of native species means that you have a feel for what the original settlers experienced when they arrived- the low palmetto trees, the bay grape plants, the scent of deep vegetation underfoot, and the flowers scrambling up into the sunlight. The coastline here is quiet wild- rock pools and crashing waves, driftwood and the reefs clearly apparent above the swells. Bring stout shoes, drinks and sunscreen and go exploring!

If you enjoy hiking, pick up the Davidson tour book featured on the website. Bermuda has an Arboretum, a Botanical Garden to investigate, and no end of fascinating out of the way areas most visitors never get to see. There are plenty of taxis at the airport- we have a few we like to refer you to because they have provided exceptional services to guests in the past- just ask us to refer you on to them. Tell driver that the house is on South Shore, Smithís, short distance past John Smithís Beach . You donít need to use phone cards to call locally: use the house phone Ė rates are listed in the house information package. The house doesnít get good cell reception anyway.

Paper towels etc . are all at the house and available at the grocery store as well. We also leave some general drug store items, such as band aids etc. in the cabinets. The house is well supplied, but if there is something else you require, everything is available in Bermuda. The owners leave an information package including brochures/maps, and you can get any additional information at the various tourist kiosks around the island. Tennis courts can be reserved at Grotto Bay Resort. Pomander Gate Tennis Club in Paget offers temporary memberships to visitors for $35 for the week. Courts can be booked Mon-Fri in mornings and possibly early afternoons which are non-peak times for the regular members.

We have a property manager who will run errands for you but please note: his charges are above and beyond the rental rates. If you leave belongings behind or want to arrange something extra to be delivered to the house, you will be presented with a bill for his hourly rates and services and it will be paid in cash on the spot, or deducted from your damage deposit. Please note that this house requires a lease and a deposit that includes a refundable $1,000.00/week damage security payment. The balance is paid 6 weeks prior to the tenancy commencing. Rented in conjunction with C56 (which is another 3 bedroom house nearby), a large family re-union or special event can be accommodated.
