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.

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.

The Perfect Vaca

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation rental was perfect, minus the amount of time we stayed! The description and pictures posted don't do the rental justice. It's nestled on the side of its own little cliff. There are other homes around, but we honestly didn't even notice. The view is spectacular. We sat outside, under the moon, every evening, and just listened to the waves crash on the rocks. It was secluded enough to feel like we were by ourselves, but also close enough to the city and bus stops to get anywhere we needed to go!

The private beach was so close and gorgeous. It was exceptionally rough the week we stayed, but there were also 3 hurricanes out in the Atlantic. We didn't allow the 16 and 18 month old to play in the water at the private beach because the currents were crazy rough, but you're only a couple bus stops away from Horseshoe Bay, which was the perfect beach for kids, swimming, cliff jumping, snorkeling, etc!

The beds were super comfortable. Although the kitchen was small and equipped with only the basics- it worked for us. We cooked breakfast and dinners most nights we were there. The grocery store is a couple bus stops away, or a $10 taxi ride. We bought all of our groceries from the Modern Mart and never went to Lindo's. Modern Mart had everything we needed.

Incredible location with access to a postcard beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Sand Dollar cottage for a week at the end of July. Upon arrival the cottage was very clean and was stocked up with the essentials, towells etc.

The views from the main bedroom are breathtaking, from the living room not so much. However your in Bermuda so if you are spending time in the living room you are doing something very wrong.

There was a nice patio area with incredible views of the ocean, this was kitted out with a pub bench to make us Brits feel at home and a gas BBQ which we used every night (if you do use the BBQ I advise you to let it heat up for half hour before cooking anything)

Our overall stay was great, Gordon who looks after the place was very kind and helpful, you are literally a stones throw from a private beach, we used this every day and there was very rarely anyone else on there, the beach was stunning and the sea crystal blue.

The property is a stones throw away from plenty of amazing beaches and there are also bus routes nearby that will take you anywhere on the island. You are about an hour walk from horseshoe bay which is nice, but rampacked with people, however you are even closer to Warwick long bay which was stunning and empty and a bit further on there are some lovely little coves and beaches.

The only downside to the property were a couple of minor faults such as the door handle kept on falling off the door that leads to the patio from the living room. If this fell on a child's bare foot it could really hurt so I would suggest that this gets fixed asap. The showers were also terrible, no power at all. Also there is no handle on the mesh door that keeps bugs out the living room so opening it was quite tricky.

None of the above would normally bother me as I'm very easy going, but when you spend $3500 for a week you expect everything to be fixed and working. To add to this, it wouldn't harm for the maids to maybe pop in every other day to tidy up and replenish the towels, at points I felt like I was back home with the amount of housework I was doing to keep it all nice. It's a holiday after all and one of the joys of a holiday is to relax and unwind, not to put a wash in and hoover the floor.

Overall though, we had a great week and with a few tweeks and additions this would have been a 5 star review.

Sand Dollar Cottage at Marley Beach

  • 4 of 5

"10 year old trip" for our grand daughter... was a success because of the casual and convenient stay at the Sand Dollar, we were right on the bus route, all our taxi drivers knew of Marley Beach. We had gorgeous weather and a fantastic view of the water from the family room and the patio (and master bedroom)... wine and cheese with the ocean view every night! (minor repairs (mostly cosmetic) would have made it a 5 star.)

We really appreciated the extra room, the 2nd bathroom, the little kitchen for casual breakfasts, and the washer and dryer .. such convenience! Loved it all.

Great location with incredible views. I would go back.

  • 5 of 5

For the price point, I was a little disappointed in how the cottage was appointed. Sliding glass door handles need some work. Gas grill starter didn't work. Stove had one burner that needed work. They knew about this. Kitchen was not as well equipped as I would have expected. We requested a couple of things and they were very accommodating about getting them for us. No rugs beside the beds to wipe your feet on before getting in bed.

Beautiful as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Sand Dollar cottage for over a week and we absolutely loved it. The location is amazing, you simply cannot beat it. You have a private beach on the south side of the island (pink sand!!), and you are a 10-minute bus ride from Hamilton. If you want to explore all sides of the island, from the Dockyards to Tobacco Bay, there is no better middle point than Sand Dollar. The proximity to Elbow beach as well as Horseshoe Bay alone is a major perk. You can also watch gorgeous sunrises from the patio as you enjoy your breakfast (full kitchen). The list can go on and on.

The transport passes were a great deal; we took the bus everywhere and even took a ferry ride as well. There are bus stops going both ways at the end of the driveway, and Gordon provides a bus schedule for you as well so you never miss a bus.

Ordering groceries ahead of time is highly recommended as well. Lindo's was very nice to deal with. We did notice once we arrived that they messed up our order, but with 1 phone call they delivered the correct groceries within the hour, and even included a complimentary bottle of wine for the slight inconvenience.

Overall it was an incredible experience, and our stay at Marley Beach had a lot to do with it. I can't recommend it enough; you will not be disappointed. This deserves every bit of 5 stars.
