Bermudans are friendly people. Lots of places to visit. We found the caves with water by Tom Moore's jungle. Took part in some of the guided tours organized by what seems like some level of volunteer group. I found many locations for pen and water colour sketches

“Charming apartment in a lovely vedanta home”

We were amazing at the roomy apartment. We celebrated our 50th anniversary there. The owners were very gracious and friendly. The kitchen had enough applicances and cooking supplies avaiable to make cooking there very convenient. We cooked mostly all our meals. The grocery store, which was just a few minute walk, had adequate supplies. Loved their steaks and chocolate biscuits. At our age, we really appreciated their very comfortable furniture. It was nice to relax in the evening to watch the cable TV in a beautifully decorated living room. We had pleasant walks to a couple beaches nearby and with free bus tickets, we were off to the other parts of the island enjoying various outings. They even had free for laundry service down the street which was another plus. Over all, we must say that Crooked Elbow is a great place to stay. Thank you.

Liked best: the whole property was so inviting. I like the little lady who lived there. She was delightful!
Liked least: Since we live in semi-arid Utah, the humidity was a big change for me.

“You could not do better than Crooked Elbow”

people found this review helpful

We had the great delight of spending two weeks at Crooked Elbow in late March this year. It could not have been better. The apartment is ideal for a couple and very comfortable. The location can't be beaten. You have a walk of 100 yards to the bus stop to connect to the whole island, you have a Laundromat at the corner of your street, and a nifty grocery store is just around the corner. On top of that, you're in St. George, a beautiful historic area where everyone is friendly. The owners were gracious and accommodating and could not have been nicer. We love Bermuda and loved this apartment and would unqualifiedly recommend it.

“Charming and comes with island bus pass”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed a month at Crooked Elbow. It is a charming one bedroom apartment in an excellent location in St George.
We used the small kitchen for cooking many suppers and having breakfasts and some lunches. There are ample dishes and some pots and pans - could use a new large frying pan as theirs is quite warped.
Apartment has great space - we especially enjoyed eating in the sun room and having wine or coffee on the lovely small patio/porch. Living room has a couch and two wingback chairs plus TV. Apartment has good wifi connection.
Location is excellent: the laundromat is about a three minute walk; bus stops to get all over the island are a 5 minute walk as is the local grocery store which can easily supply your needs. For larger selection, we took a 15 minute bus ride to the Market Place at Shelly Bay. Best thing about this rental? It comes with 2 free transportation passes good on all busses and ferries. The bus system is excellent, scenic, and you can explore the entire island this way. Highly recommend it over renting scooters!
Mrs. Rowe is an absolute delight! If you're looking for a Holiday Inn/hotel experience and must have a dishwasher and the most modern of everything - this is not for you. But if you want the experience of living in a charming rehabbed historical home in a World UNESCO Site, at a very reasonable price, Crooked Elbow is the place!
For those renting in the summer, the bedroom is air conditioned and the owners had folks come in to measure and look at air conditioning units for the living room and kitchen - don't know if or when that will happen. Obviously no need for them in February. And by the way, a Bermuda winter is perfect for hiking, walking, exploring the island - no crowds, no cruise ships, and many winter specials in terms of activities. We loved it! We'd much rather walk the beaches and be a part of the community than deal with the crowds of high season.

Liked best: Great location, free transportation passes, charming rehabbed historical home.
Liked least: would have liked a dishwasher and a newer large fry pan. But this is really minor in comparison to how much we liked this place and living in St George.

“Almost like living in Bermuda vs. vacationing as a tourist!”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We've visited Bermuda numerous times since getting married there 20 years ago but really felt like we were living there and not just vacationing. Crooked Elbow was exactly as described. It was quaint and comfortable and very clean. It was unusually humid during our stay so lack of air conditioning (except in the bedroom, thankfully) was uncomfortable. During the steamy periods, we enjoyed the lovely patio and a cool drink or used the fans provided. Our hostess, Ann Rowe, was very friendly and considerate in meeting our needs. A great place for breakfast was the CV Cafe and we enjoyed some excellent pizza at Tavern by the Sea. We had a memorable seafood dinner at the Beach House near Fort St. Catherine at sunset. Transportation was very easy and convenient with bus and ferry. We will definitely enjoy returning to Crooked Elbow.
