Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a pleasure meeting you. Your place was great in so many respects and we had a very relaxing time there! The view, the pool, and the quality of the unit itself were all major pluses. We really liked that it was close to St. George's but sort of secluded and private in relation to the busier areas on the island. We'd absolutely consider booking with you again if and when we return to Bermuda.

Peace of mind

Great location with first class accommodation to match.

Mike is a great host . You're not living in a hotel but part of a small community with lush landscape and quaint country lanes. St George is about 10 min away on a scooter and shopping and restaurants abound. This part of the island offers a series of beautiful, often secluded beachs that contrast with the hustle and bustle beaches along the south shore. Overall top marks to our host and a full blown recommendation to anybody considering the home called Narrow Escape, St David's, Bermuda

amazing get-a-way location

  • 5 of 5

amazing views of the sunrise from the bedroom. this was a perfect retreat for a couple who wanted to get away from things for a bit. it is off the beaten path in the best sense of the phrase. I would recommend a scooter (oleanders at st George will deliver and pick up) as this house is located in st. davids. the cooper nature preserve (and pristine beaches) is 10 minutes away and st George is about 15 minutes away. mike was very nice, accommodating, and his dog karma (mostly good) was very friendly. pool was good for the view (a tad chilly in april). we like to cook and found that we were able to prepare salmon, chicken, pasta, and fresh salad and potatoes without too much difficulty. there is a coffee maker, stovetop (no oven), and microwave. plan on going again.

We totally loved our week's stay. A great relaxing vacation! A very beautiful apartment with spectacular views. The sunset can be seen every morning from your bed!!! Mike is such a warm loving guy, who makes you feel comfortable the second you meet him. We rented a moped & travelled the entire island...then returning to this incredible hideaway! Highly recommend this amazing paradise!

After a few days at the end of South Road with family, my girlfriend and I moved up north to 'Near Escape' and oh man...we were SO glad we made that move. Within seconds ALL our stress faded away into nothingness. Off the beaten path a bit but easy access into St George' will want to rent a scooter. Our host and his dog were wonderful hosts that made the retreat even more relaxing. Although our stay was a short one, I would have loved to stay a bit longer and fully decompress. The view and the pool is what it was all about. I felt like I was George Clooney looking over Lake Como, it is a million dollar view that you will enjoy. In my opinion this location is best for a couple, but it can accommodate kids if needed. It had everything we needed, beautiful big bathroom, nice efficiency living room/kitchen and beautiful big bedroom, wifi. I want to go back next week...thanks so much for the hospitality!

Can't Wait to Go Back!

The photos you see for this property don't do it justice. It really is the most serene place to lodge. I stayed with my partner for three nights and we loved it. We had the view all to ourselves and were really able to enjoy each other and soak it all in. Our host, Mike, is a very kind and hospitable person who went above and beyond to take care of us while we were in Bermuda. He is professional and provided us with a clean space and stayed in contact to provide us with top notch customer service. I'd also like to mention that we booked our stay with Mike pretty much the same day we needed to arrive and he helped us find transportation to the airport when I had trouble calling a cab. He is very accommodating!

If you choose to stay here you'll definitely want to get a scooter, because St. David's island is pretty quiet. The nearest activity is Clearwater Beach, which we walked to (its about a 30 minute walk) and Gombeys (a bar with food). There are food options about 10 minutes away by car/scooter just over the bridge and also on St. Georges which is maybe 15 minutes by car/scooter. Hamilton is about 45 minutes away and the Navy area even further (we never made it there).

In Hamilton we ate at the Pickled Onion which was the best! We also ate at Wahoos in St. Georges which was pretty good. We really enjoyed visiting the beach near St. Catherine's Fort. It was beautiful and I even saw some Sea Glass. The unfinished church was also nice to stop and see (it is structurally unsafe to enter so you really only spend a few minutes there just to look around and take some photos).

If you're trying to choose between staying here and staying elsewhere, I will tell you to do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a relaxing stay here.
