“Really is a Cute Cottage”

people found this review helpful

My husband & I spent 4 nights in this cute cottage. It had everything we needed including umbrellas for a rainy afternoon. The bed was comfortable and the shower very nice. The washer and dryer allowed us to pack light. Everything from a grocery store, restaurants, ferries, busses, & beaches are just a few minutes walk away. There were only a few problems: the tank ran out of water one night and we needed to wait for Julian (the very personable owner) to drive over and switch to the other and the AC is some what chilly if you sit on the sofa-sleeper in the living room to watch TV . However, neither of these things would prevent us from renting this cottage again as we really enjoyed the experience.

“Quaint cottage in a quaint town”

My daughter and I spent 3 nights in Threadneedle Cottage. The cottage is exactly as you see it in the photographs and everything you could possibly need or want is provided. The location is perfect, about 3 minutes from the square. We explored the town, enjoyed early morning walks round the headland, joined the walking tour and watched the sunset out on a sailing yacht. Julian organised a taxi for us and a cell phone was provided for our use.

“Very nice cottage, centrally located in St. George”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Threadneedle Cottage for 2 weeks. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay. The cottage is well located, within walking distance of all of St. George, including Somer's Market for grocery, Tobacco, Achilles and St. Catherine's beaches. Needle and Thread Lane is located in a quiet residential area.

Arrival and departure was seemless, in fact Julian arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport entrance. Further, our flight leaving Bermuda didn't depart til the evening, and because there were no tenants arriving the day of our departure, Julian graciously allowed us to stay in the cottage til late afternoon. The provision of a cell phone was great, and we used it to sort out minor issues with Julian during our stay, scooter issues with Oleander cycles and arrange for a taxi ride to the airport. It allowed us to forego buying local sim cards for our smart phones. The internet service was consistent and fast. It allowed us to stay connected with home. Julian addressed minor issues promptly.

We cooked the high majority of our meals in the kitchen, which is very well appointed and stocked with cooking utensils. We enjoyed having afternoon drinks on the deck. It is well oriented to receive the afternoon sun. The only thing we can think of that would have improved it would be a propane barbecue, as we really like to grill. The washer and dryer were very useful, allowing us to travel with minimal clothes.

Overall, we would stay at the Threadneedle Cottage again.

“Charm in a great location”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My mother and I stayed here over Thanksgiving. She had the bedroom, I slept on the daybed in the living room. While the cottage is small, it's very livable. The bathroom is quite modern (great shower!) and the kitchen has everything you could want or need. I found the daybed quite comfortable.
The best thing about this cottage is the location. You're about a five minute walk, at most, from the town square and harbor at St. George's. The Bermuda Perfume Factory is just around the corner; the unfinished church is five minutes the other direction; Tobacco Bay is 10 minutes or so at most. If you're a history buff, St. George's is definitely the place to stay and this cottage is a great choice.
Julian was very good to work with -- questions promptly answered, both ahead of time and when we were there. He helped with airport transport as well. Very good experience!

“One of the best locations on Bermuda”
Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed a week in the little cottage and it is in one of the best locations on Bermuda. St George is a gem of a place full of history and most picturesque. St George definitely deserves its UNESCO accreditation. The buses, shops and restaurants are a short walk through the meandering alleys. The beautiful Tobacco Bay is a 15 minute walk over the hill and this really is snorkeling heaven. We were there in the off season so the beach cafe's were all closed but this did have the added benefit of deserted beaches. The water temperature was still warm enough to swim comfortably. There are about 5 different bus routes from St George which is on the east side of the island to Hamilton and access to the west side and south beaches. The buses are cheap if you buy a pack of tokens - about $2 single. A $4 token will take you all the way to Dockyard including a trip on the water ferry. We don't recommend a bike or moped as the roads are very twisty and narrow. We are keen walkers and one of the down sides was the lack of pavements on the island - so you are safer on the buses which run to time. We crammed a lot into our week and 3 days were spent exploring St George - they organise a re-enactment of a 17th century trial and ducking of the nagging woman, plus town walks which are well worth doing. They organise a lot of free activities on different days across the island so a visit to the Visitor's centre is a must. One of our memorable walks was round the eastern headland and taking in Gates Fort, Fort William, Gates Bay (where the Sea Venture went aground) and Fort St Catherine. A visit on the number 6 bus to Clearwater bay, Turtle Beach and Cooper island is also recommended.
The cottage is well equipped with all mod cons including washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, large cooker, microwave etc. The provision of a cell phone to maintain contact with owner was a good idea as we did have a few plumbing problems that were dealt with. It is in a very quiet location with the main noise coming from the tree frogs! We did have similar problems to those reported by another visitor with leaking bedroom roof when it rained hard. So make sure you move clothes away from the hanging area if it does rain hard as they are likely to get wet (but you do have the tumble drier if that happens). After the hurricane and storms we did have a few visitations from the local rodent/insect community which the owner is currently sorting out.

Altogether a very memorable holiday.
