The hotel services were perfect, with two especially good restaurants, its own golf course, and a beautiful beach with plenty of umbrellas and chaise lounges, food service, and another restaurant next door. Everything one could want in a beach vacation!
This is a huge, beautiful house with a million dollar view! It is conveniently located on the grounds of the Fairmont Southampton Hotel. The owner Kim is very friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, this is it!
I grew up going to Bermuda with my family (5 siblings and my parents) since 1982 and we always rented houses, primary in the Paget parish. My husband and I are continuing the tradition with our four children (ages 13, 11, 9 and 6). Southern Views exceeded every expectation we had as we were not familiar with renting in Southampton parish. I cannot say enough about the breathtaking views of this home. We loved waking up and hanging out on the deck with a cup of coffee and having breakfast overlooking Horseshoe Bay. Several mornings, we visited the Coffee Bar at the Fairmont hotel and grabbed croissants and coffees on the go- a two minute walk from the house. In addition, the beach was a short walk from the house. We walked down to Horseshoe Bay and rarely stayed on the main beach- there were too many coves to explore (Jobson's cove was our kid's favorite spot). Post beach, we headed back to the pool at the house and enjoyed many a ping pong tournament. The house is also in an excellent location if you are a runner. The Railroad Trail is minutes away and offers miles of a mostly shaded, no vehicles running trail. We were comfortable on mopeds so we rented one moped for grocery runs. Again, the grocery store was less than 5 minutes away. Can't to go back! Thanks Kim!
This home is a perfect spot for a family or group of friends looking for gorgeous views, beautiful beaches and excellent service from the owners. We were a group of eight adults and two small children and we loved every minute of our time at Southern Views. Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with; any small issue we had was resolved quickly and she was available to answer questions any time. We were on the go all week: we did a reef fishing trip on the Ellen B, golfed at Port Royal, Mid Ocean and Turtle Hills, toured the island on the Restless Native catamaran, dined out at many wonderful restaurants, had Food for Thought cater an awesome meal in the house, hiked the sand trails along the beaches by Horseshoe Bay, and spent hours enjoying the pool and fabulous deck of Southern Views. It was a perfect week!
This is an extraordinarily beautiful large house with a deck and gorgeous view that includes equipment (e.g., cribs and a highchair) that make it perfect for families with young children. We loved our time here, and Kim was extremely kind and helpful. We enjoyed many hours at the beach. During normal times it takes less than 10 minutes to walk down the road to the west end of Horseshoe Bay, but construction to get ready for America's Cup means that it currently is a much longer walk or short taxi ride to the east end. (Taxis are always available at the nearby Fairmont Southampton resort.) Another great activity for kids is the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo.
This Bermuda home had all we could desire for family of 6 (and could fit more). The location is stunning. The Home has a massive porch that looks out on the South shore beaches. The home has every modern amenity and the Landlord was immediately responsive to our needs. We had lived in Bermuda many years so we know the Island, and we have no hesitation to say this home is the best Bermuda we could imagine.
We had a wonderful week at Southern Views. Great location for beach, Golf, dining and exploring. Comfortable beds and spacious place for a large family or multiple couples!
We have twin babies and Kim provided two pack and plays which were a huge help :)
I would definitely recommend this rental!
