We came to Bermuda for the Bermuda race Weekend. We really enjoyed this cottage! Pictures and description absolutely correct. The cottage is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. In order to prevent too much luggage ask the host what will be provided. We had too much stuff with us. We have never had an appartment with such a big mass of things provided by the host. Highly appreciated! Great laundry! Nice garden! The communication with the host was very quick and efficient. Host very helpful! Great to have 2 bus lines to choose. This makes it very comfortable to go places. It is very easy to get around with the bus. The bus pass includes the ferries. It's a must to get on one of the ferries, there are several routes. It makes sense to buy a pass at the beginning of your stay and to try all the different routes of the bus and ferry. In that way you will see a lot from Bermuda, every single route is different and scenic. Bus drivers and ferry staff very helpful and friendly. For participants in the Bermuda race weekend highly recommended. You can cook your own pasta, you can wash your sports gear. Great to have the small supermarket and post office next to the cottage. Overall rating: very excellent! We would book it again for our next stay.
From the moment we stepped off the plane, Faith and Stephen made this vacation a dream. The driver they had pick us up was prompt, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable of the island.
The cottage was beautiful and had plenty of space for the three of us (we traveled with our 6-year old). The bed and sofa bed were extremely comfortable, the appliances modern and the bathroom feels downright luxurious. Our daughter loved the miniature horses next door and taking in the morning air from the front porch.
The cottage is within walking distance of a small store to buy groceries, the aquarium and good restaurants.
Going into Hamilton for the afternoon was extremely easy and we had no issues with the public transportation system.
Faith and Stephen thought of everything - a binder with contact information, wifi password and anything else you could think of is waiting in the cottage upon your arrival. And if there does happen to be a question not answered in the book they are of course extremely warm and welcoming.
Overall, such a great vacation. The cottage is absolutely the best place to stay on the island in terms of convenience and flexibility when traveling with children, and Faith and Stephen are the best hosts!

Our stay at Dean Hall Nursery was an amazing experience in absolutely every respect. We were met at the airport by the owner's mother and treated like royalty. The cottage had absolutely everything needed for a perfect holiday with nothing forgotten.... from sunblock & after sun treatment lotion, a kitchen pantry with real coffee & coffee machine. A full kitchen, laundry, beach towels, beach bags etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable with a range of pillows to suit anyone. Air conditioning and ceiling fan cooled the cottage perfectly. We enjoyed breakfast each morning on the front patio whilst watching the local birds. Stephen called in to check that everything was satisfactory during the week - even though a welcome pack was available when we arrived with contact phone numbers and general informative tips regarding local places of interest. Pamphlets and maps were in abundance. Stephen's mother took us across the road to the local Post Office to arrange Bus Passes for our ten day stay which proved to be so economical. The Bus Service on the Island was amazingly easy to navigate and we were soon hopping on and off buses and ferries with incredible ease. We can honestly say that we have never been to a more friendly country - the locals were always incredibly friendly and helpful.... so much so that while we were taking photos of the beautiful colours of the island's houses, a local lady asked if we needed any help.... we assured her we were fine.... to which she said to us "Enjoy my Island!" Overall our stay at Dean Hall Nursery was one we will never forget. We will definitely be returning!

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...
