Somerset Village, a small sleepy and picturesque community, was once a busy maritime port that hugs the Mangrove Bay. The water is crystal clear and perfect for a quick dip or you can just enjoy a stroll on the beach. Stroll along the narrow lanes on both sides of Mangrove Bay road and you will see many pastel color houses with wooden balconies, the small stores and the sleepy lifestyle of the islanders.

Bus stops are in front of the Building on either directions make it very convenience to tour the Island either by Land or Sea. A ferry station at Watford Bridge is just a walk away.

Either strolling, running or biking through beautiful "Railway Trail"

Few steps across the way is 'Somerset Long Bay Beach' which provides a private local experience. The white, sandy beach, swimming near the coast with panoramic view of the northern coast of the island that doesn't usually get packed with beach goers, watch the Beautiful Magical Sunset every evening.

About Jody Place

We love Somerset Village! Both apartments with balconies are upstairs with its own entrances. We reside in downstairs apartment along with our Home Goods store. The community is very friendly. Lots to see and do if you enjoy the nature!

Jody Place purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Jody Place chose Somerset Village

In a quaint and romantic small Downtown.

We believe you will enjoy our place if you travel for the purpose of promoting health and wellness through physical activities and relaxation including cultural experience. Sandys is the western most Parish. It's named after Sir Edwin Sandys who made large investments to colonize the parish in early 1600s. The parish name is pronounced as 'Sands'. Sandys has five islands that are joined by bridges. The islands are Ireland Island North, Ireland Island South, Boaz Island, Watford Island and the biggest of all, Somerset Island. The Royal Naval Dockyard where most of the cruise ships anchor, is located at Ireland Island North. Being farthest from the congested Hamilton City, the parish provides refreshing piece and serenity that are quickly disappearing in tourist populated Bermuda.

What makes this apartment unique

To wake up every morning to the Beautiful picturesque blue water, sail boats, coconut trees, etc!

Easy Access with Bermuda Public Transportation System! Least expensive, reliable, safe and convenient way to explore the Island.

Buses and Ferries for Sandys, Bermuda

Bus routes #7 and #8 connect Hamilton City and Sandys. Bus #8 is more frequent than #7 and takes the Middle Road in Sandys through the urban areas, while bus#7 takes mainly the scenic South Road.

There are several ferry stops in Sandys that serve Hamilton City.

1) At the Dockyard - Few Bus Stops from EXIM Guest Apartment

2) At Watford Bridge - Walking distance from EXIM Guest Apartment

3) At Cavello Bay - Walking distance from EXIm Guest Apartment. This is located in Somerset island and is a lovely place. Buses won't go all the way. To reach the ferry stop, take Somerset Road, then Sound View Road and then Scott's Hill Road and go right up to the end.

4) At Somerset Bridge Wharf.

Perfect for our family stay! Well appointed, super clean, great location. Best hosts ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Cathy & Jody in Somerset, Bermuda. The apartment was spacious, super clean, very well appointed - everything you need - and, with a 4-year old in tow, we really enjoyed the flexibility of having a full kitchen. We loved the location, being a bit outside of the most touristy spots, but within easy reach of everything by bus or taxi. Jody & Cathy were exceptionally responsive and attentive hosts, answering all of our questions with immediacy. Thank you Jody & Cathy for a fantastic visit. We can’t wait to come back!!

A beautiful rental

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and Jody's studio rental in Somerset Village was all that we wanted and more. Right from the location, on the main road leading into and away from the village, to its balcony overlooking the town and its small bay, and the utter charm of the interior of the rental - with all of its simple amenities. This was a fantastic rental that we look forward to coming back to. Of no small importance was the charm and grace of our hosts, Cathy and Jody, who made sure we were always comfortable and made arrangements for our transport to and from the airport. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious host. We hope to see them again next year!

Fantastic Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay in Somerset Village. Close to private beaches and bus stop is literally right across the street. Bought a bus pass for the whole stay which was totally worth it. Thank you Jody and Cathy for a wonderful vacation!

We LOVE "Hog Bay": This is one of the best kept secrets of the island and very few know about the beach. It is located in Sandy's parish.

So why is Hog Bay Beach so unknown in Bermuda? Because you need to walk quite a bit through a rocky and wooded trail to get to it, and it is only a beach at low tide. During high tide, the beach disappears completely. So the beach is usually available for you to enjoy only for about four hours a day. But for us that's a privileged exclusivity for four long hours, and we thoroughly enjoy the walk through the trail as well. It's a tiny beach at low tide and a beautiful area for swimming and snorkeling. At low tide, the shallows extend some 300 meters into the sea, and is excellent for snorkeling. But you should get hold of a tide chart to time your visit correctly. You can get a tide chart in the website weather.bm for any day.
