A warm and well-worn early 18th century nook redolent with Bermuda's history. You've got plenty of space, lovely morning light and are a short walk from beaches, local sights and some very fine (fun!) dining. Having a very nice local grocer at the end of the street, a nice clean laundromat just steps away and any manner of places to see and to shop right up the street was handy. And the frequently scheduled bus ride to other parts of the island offers scenic vistas at every turn. We were in St. George's to do some historical research and to celebrate my birthday in a romantic setting. Done! Can't wait to visit again.
My husband & I rented this lovely studio apartment which happens to be on the north side of the island. The location was amazing, we are close grotto bay, Hamilton and St. George. Erin and Janine were wonderful! We are arrived on Christmas eve not knowing things would be close Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. They made sure we had egs, milk, bread, snacks and two bottles of wine. Very thoughtful!! Offered to reimburse them, they said merry Christmas !! We did not spend much time in the apartment which was our plan, we had our own patio and our own separate entrance. All the privacy anyone would need and want. We made several meals in the apartment which was exactly as the photos show!! Wonderful property away from the tourist areas and cruise ships, yet close enough to be anywhere on the island in 30 min. We rented a scooter which allowed us the freedom to experience All the areas of intrest. Should we choose to go to Bermuda again in the future, we most assuredly will find Janine and Erin's apartment and stay with them again !! They were extremely helpful with any questions we had. We spent Christmas Day on elbow beach were hundreds of people gather with Christmas hats and Christmas outfits. There was a live DJ and cocktails on the beach to purchase as well. We also went to the Crystal caves which was fascinating. I recommend the buffet at grotto bay beach resort in the winter months which is around $17.95 per person USD. The resort itself is absolutely gorgeous, we enjoyed The buffet they're overlooking the ocean!!Thank you Erin and Janine for making our experience such a memorable & happy one !! They were amazing, can't say enough about them. Highly recommend this property. A++ thanks you Aaron & Janine!!
We had the distinct pleasure to spend five wonderful evenings at this very quaint, well kept and ideally located home in the heart of historic St. George. The hosts are very pleasant and easy to work with and the easy access to Tobacco Bay and Fort St. Catherine is ideal. Please be sure to also walk through the surrounding historical areas and note the wonderful monuments to Bermuda's founding.
Many thanks to Mark and Anne for their hospitality, and we do hope to return in the future.
I loved Crooked Elbow. Everything you need is there and all the comforts of home. The owners were very caring and knowledgeable. Anne Rowe who lives above the property was a delight to chat with. She invited me to her beautifully decorated home for a cup of tea and we chatted for some time on her huge balcony with a wonderful view of the unfinished church. Everything is in walking distance and the bus stop is literally on your doorstep. The bus pass saved a lot of money as I used the buses and ferries every day for the week I stayed there. Couldn't thank them enough. Only had time to go to Tobacco Beach once as I wanted to make good use of the bus pass and explore the island. When I stayed in Hamilton my second week I went back to that beautiful beach. When I checked out Anne allowed me to stay until late afternoon as no guests were arriving that day so I spent a few hours at Tobacco Beach and went to the unfinished church and St. Catherine's Fort, not to be missed. Anne also allowed me to keep the bus pass as I left May 30 and it wouldn't be needed on the 31st so I had the pass for 8 days instead of the seven and I used it to go the zoo and aquarium which is well worth a visit too. I would definitely go back to Elbow Cottage. Mark Rowe gave me excellent directions from the airport to give to the taxi driver so there was no problem finding this wonderful home. I was almost in tears when I left. I loved Crooked Elbow and St. Georges and hope to return one day.
