Dean Hall Nursery Cottage is just as described on Airbnb: comfortable, beautifully furnished and fully kitted out. The owners Stephen and Faith have really gone out of their way to provide everything you need for great stay in the cottage and a great holiday on Bermuda generally. In addition, they checked in with us throughout to make sure we had as fantastic a holiday as possible.
Dean Hall Nursery delivered perfectly on expectations! Cab was waiting for us on arrival. Cathy & Nathaniel warmly welcomed & made us feel right at home. The best Sauv Blanc & 2 beers were chilled & waiting for us too!
We had pre booked a scooter online thru recommended Elbow Beach. While we were disappointed they would not rent to us in the rain due to safety, we had a lovely first evening settling in. Picked up a few things for breakfast just a cross the road, took a short walk to Rustico (don't forget to make reservations) for a lovely dinner & walked around Flatts Village at sunset. Stephen stopped by next morning while we lingered over coffee on the front veranda & before we knew it, Elbow Beach Cycles picked us up & we were off to get our scooter. We always get around this way when we come to Bermuda but definitely recommend Elbow Beach & Mrs T as they take great care in service & safety. On our 6th visit to Bermuda we found a favorite spot.
Faith & Stephen kept in touch to be sure we had everything we needed. We did & much more! Wouldn't hesitate to return to this lovely cottage. Many thanks Stephen & Faith!! Till the next time...
This cottage was amazing. We loved everything about it. Great location. We've stayed in hotels in Bermuda but will stay here from now on. Faith and Steven were great host.

In additions to all the positive comments about "The Cottage" , there are many many more "little" details of our stay made us feel being treated like family and we feel right at home with Stephen and Faith's attentiveness and considerateness:
Stephen and Faith contacted me for our arrival and departure fights information after we booked the cottage, and accordingly arranged taxi drivers to pick us up and send us to the airport.
I forgot to jot down the cottage exact address when going through the Bermuda Immigration. The officer contacted Stephen on the phone and he was right there available to straighten things out.
Cathy welcomed us at the cottage and showed my son the lovely miniature horses, made beautiful tropical flower arrangements and pointed us to spend the afternoon at stunning Warwick Long Bay.
Stephen and Faith, along with baby "James" stopped by just to say hi to us.
Stephen fixed clogged toilet right after I reported to him about the clog and followed up with me to ensure it can be used without problem. They are always readily available at the other side of the e-mail.
I love the tastefully decorated cottage, nice and comfortable bed and bed sheets, illustrations of Bermuda histories and daily life used to decorate the cottage, the books about Bermuda history, travel and shipwrecks, and the snorkels and fins ready for us to bring to the beach.
I would recommend Dean Hall Nursery without any hesitation. Staying at Dean Hall Nursery made our Bermuda vacation perfect and unforgettable. We simply cannot wait to go back again. Thank you Stephen and Faith!
Our hosts Stephen and Faith had made arrangements for Wayne to pick us up at the airport, he was a very nice and fun driver/guide. Cathy welcomed us at the cottage and showed us around. She introduced us to the neighborhood and showed us the post office across the street where we later got bus/ferry tickets and day passes. Cathy had used flowers from the garden to make 2 beautiful and tasteful arrangements. The cottage is beautiful, tasteful, clean and very well organized. We could not have asked for a better place to stay, it felt like our own home in beautiful and peaceful Bermuda. We found beers and wine in the refrigerator, a very nice treat!! The kitchen was stock with small size preserves, butter, ketchup, mustard, coffee, tea and other goodies. Our hosts had thought of everything, maps, travel guide books, snorkel equipment, toiletries, back pack, sun care lotions, bandaids, straw beach mat and more. Faith came by a little later the day of our arrival, she brought baby James with her and he gave us the sweetest smile ever !! Stephen and Faith had made dinner reservations at Rustico for us the day of our arrival. Rustico is located within walking distances, near the aquarium and in front of a beautiful water inlet. We liked the food and ambiance at Rustico and did go back for dinner one more time. We spent the evenings in the backyard by the bbq grill, looking at the stars and listening/recording the amazing symphonies performed by the area insects ( to our surprise, there were not any mosquitos ). The cottage is conveniently located steps away from the bus stop. There is another bus stop not far, next to the aquarium. We loved Bermuda and when we go back, we hope Stephen and Faith's cottage will be available for us.
