About Our Location: Sand Dollar Beach Cottage is located at Marley Beach in Warwick. Many readers may be aware of the former cottage colony called Marley Beach Cottages that included Sand Dollar Beach Cottage which has been substantially upgraded.

Steps away from a beautiful and private beach, central to just about everything anyone could wish to do in Bermuda with convenient bus stops at the bottom of the driveway, restaurants within walking distance, golf, tennis, sightseeing and shopping only minutes away..... This is a rare gem in Bermuda for the visitor who doesn't want the large hotel stay and prefers to get out and do their own exploring and discovery while staying in one of the most romantic, private and spectacular settings in Bermuda!

Sunrises, Sunsets and Whales: Sand Dollar Beach Cottage faces south, and no matter the time of year or weather, the sunrises and sunsets are nothing short of spectacular!

Whale watching is wondrous in the springtime, with frequent sightings early in the mornings and early evenings during March, April, and sometimes into May. The whales are often within half a mile of the beach as they come in during the night to protect their young. You don't need binoculars to watch them frolicking, breeching and just cavorting in Bermuda's tranquil and protected waters.

During the summer months, the snorkeling on private Marley Beach is magical. You can even see scores of large parrot fish feeding on the reefs close in to the shore with your naked eye right from the terrace overlooking the beach.

IF YOU HAVE MORE PEOPLE: We also have a studio apartment next door. It's called Sand Pebble Studio apartment with kitchen, full bath, large bed/sitting room, patio and is suitable for two. You can view Sand Pebble on this website property number 400591.

About Stephen Martin

Born and raised in Bermuda. Grew up at Marley Beach.

Stephen Martin purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Stephen Martin chose Bermuda

Sand Dollar Beach Cottage really grows on you. You can wake up in the morning and walk down to the beach with a cup of coffee or an exercise mat. Centrally located to all points on the island. I think it is a marvelous place.

Everything I had hoped for & more!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned to the states after a week long stay with my sister and her husband at the beautiful Sand Dollar Cottage. The location was a piece of paradise with plenty of room for the four of us. This was my 3rd visit to Bermuda and the best place to stay! The view at Sand Dollar was simply amazing with a few steps down to our own private, beautiful beach. I can't say enough about this beautiful cottage on the hill. Gordon was a huge help and had everything arranged for us before we arrived including food we had pre purchased waiting in the fridge. The proximity of Sand Dollar on the South Shore to all that Bermuda has to offer was perfect. Close to everything. The bus stop was just outside down the driveway. We used it everyday to go all around as it was easy and fun. We saw a lot of Bermuda that way. We were a short walk to Swizzle Inn and a short bus ride to Jobsons Cove, Horseshoe Bay, and Elbow beach which we enjoyed immensely. We took the bus into Hamilton and the ferry across to Dockyard and also St Georges. It was a very easy and fun. I am forever in love with Bermuda and will be returning next year and will definitely stay at one of Steve and Gordon's beautiful cottages again at Marley beach. This was such an incredible place to stay and we were quite content to be there. It also saved us money by not having to eat out a lot. We had the best view on the island so we cooked on the grill every night but one! Morning coffee with the view and the sounds was comparable to none! We even had our coffee on the beach one morning!

At night I kept the screen open and the sounds of the surf lulled me to sleep. We also enjoyed the sounds of the tiny frogs in the trees. There was so much beauty all around and way to much to even begin to describe in this small paragraph. I think this was the best place to stay on the island. If you are planning a vacation to Bermuda, go to Sand Dollar, you won't be disappointed!! Thank you Steve and Gordon! Sand Dollar was everything we had expected!

Secluded gem close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a marvelous and well maintained rustic property that provides a wonderful beach getaway. Both the owner and his on-island representative, Gordon Henry, are very helpful. The stairs/pathway to the private beach is still being rebuilt after the hurricane of October 2014, but that's just an added bit of adventure that will be remedied soon. Would definitely go back again.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my sister and a friend for a getaway after an winter of endless snow in Boston. It did not disappoint.

As other reviewers have said, it really is a beautiful location with amazing panoramic ocean views above a tiny little beach that's usually deserted. The cottage itself was lovely, and very clean and well-kept. We spent evenings listening to the waves crash on the rocks while the peepers sang along with them. The bus at the end of the driveway provided an easy way to get to get to the beaches during the day and into Hamilton at night for dinner (though one night we just walked to the Swizzle Inn). Steve and Gordon were both great help along the way as we planned our trip. We couldn't have asked for more.

Thank you for a truly memorable experience. We will definitely be back!

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 5 day getaway at Steve's Sand Dollar Cottage. Our two young kids (ages 4 and 1) had a great time. The 4 year old just loved playing in the pristine sand and the 1 year old just wanted to walk around the spacious air conditioned cottage. Everything you need is really there in the cottage except the food, but Steve and his good friend Gordon (who checks you in) are there for you from the moment you book in advising what to do (stop by the supermarket on the way in). Gordon is great and was so helpful. I echo everything everyone has said about the view. It is spectacular, especially from the master bedroom. If the place is available, don't hesitate to book!

Our family of 4 had a fantastic time exploring all Bermuda has to offer. Sand Dollar is located in a perfect spot to hop on a bus or ride your moped into Hamilton. The Swizzle Pub, located just down the street, was perfect for easy dinners out and a cold drink. The private beach was pristine. How wonderful is it to just take some steps down to paradise. Its so easy to carry down chairs and umbrellas and sit and read a book, drink some wine, throw a frisbee, and enjoy the beautiful blue waters. Bermuda is not an inexpensive island as basically everything needs to be imported. However, if you rent Sand Dollar, you save in the long run as you don't have to go out for every meal. I rise very early and enjoy my coffee, scone and book while everyone else sleeps in the comfortable beds. After a long day jet skiing, an easy pasta dinner made at home and playing cards was just what we needed. My college aged kids had a blast as did my husband and I. The cottage had everything you needed -- lots of bath and beach towels - comfortable beds - air conditioning (if you so choose, although the breeze comes off the ocean!). The 2 separate bathrooms made living with teens very easy. I highly recommend the cottage. You will be blown away by the view!

Beautiful in every way

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family rented this property along with Sea Song and it was beautiful in every way. We were all convenient to one another but not on top of one another. Both properties are more spacious than I imagined from the pictures. The location is ideal and the bus system couldn't be more convenient. We were so pleased to have the bus passes waiting for us upon arrival...just one example of the good customer service. My only issue was the stairs to and from the beach. They were challenging for some of us older folks in the family and not in great condition. But the beach was so beautiful and secluded that we all made the effort. We hope to return some day soon!!
