Great Grape Bay Cottages
"The Grape Bay Cottages are excellent: the location, on a beautiful uncrowded beach on the south shore of Bermuda is stunning. Hamilton is a walkable distance away, as are the Botanical gardens. The Frith family who manage the two cottages make you feel at home. A delightful housekeeper comes every day to tidy up. The well-equipped kitchen makes it possible to prepare your own meals if you don't want to eat out every day. Our four-member family had a great time and we will be back!"

Wonderful Bermuda Vacation at Grape Bay Cottages
"We had such a wonderful stay at Grape Bay Cottages! Maria, the owner, was such a wonderful hostess. We were in contact with her many times before our arrival and she would always respond right away to all our questions. The house cleaner, Gwen, was also wonderful. It was so nice to come home after a day at the beach and have everything clean again! We would definitely recommend the cottages to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation away in Bermuda! We stayed at beach crest cottage, but the other looked just as nice. It was great to be steps from the beach. We enjoyed being able to make some meals ourselves right from the kitchen. Also, we loved sitting out on the porch to eat our meals. There was also a nice area you could lay out on lounge chairs, which we used a lot. The cottage is very central-It was great to be so close to Hamilton. There is a walk up to the bus stop at the end of the road that will take you wherever you want to go. When we needed to take the bus, we would try to plan to leave earlier in the day, before the sun got so hot, so the walk wasn't that bad of a walk. You can also call a taxi to pick you up. We have been to Bermuda four times now, and this was definitely one of our best trips here-staying at Grape Bay Cottages!"

"After extensive research, we located this cottage, called Beach Home. Prior to our visit, we felt like we got to know the owners via email. Our week could not have been better, except for the water which was very cold. We have stayed in many rented villas and the location--right on the beach--makes this perfect. It is not opulent, in fact, it is very much a beach house. The weather and constant visitors' use show but that is the way it should be! You are at the beach! Can't get closer! Totally private! Wonderful hosts! Great value!"

My favorite vacation
"Grape Bay Cottages offer everything I want in a vacation: relaxation, cleanliness, privacy, and a feeling of utopia. All needs are attended to, close proximity to Hamilton, and the beauty of a private beach----truly a home away from home that makes one feel that all is right with the world. Maria Frith manages the property beautifully and your happiness and satisfaction are her first priority. My first visit to this property was 1975 and I have returned 9 times throughout the years. I have had the opportunity to travel extensively and this is my favorite destination. I leave relaxed and anticipating a return Judy Honeoye Falls, NY"

nirvana in bermuda
"I hesitate to promote this stunning place for fear it will not be available when I would like to return. A simple, lovely, and traditional Bermuda cottage in a drop dead gorgeous setting right on the beach in the elegant Grape Bay neighborhood of Paget is not your everyday rental. It is cared for by the Frith family and they do everything to make you feel at home without intruding. In additon they have a marvelous friendly housekeeper who comes eveyday and keeps things tidy and clean. You must do your own shopping and find transport but if you like your independence you will love this. It is for the person who wants to be close to nature and looked after by some wonderful Bermudians. There are no tourists or other noises or hubbub -indeed you are in paradise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

A Delightful Bermuda Hideaway
"Grape Bay Cottage Beach Home is a delightful two-bedroom cottage with a living-dining room, full bath and fully-equipped kitchen that sits atop a cliff overlooking a beautiful beach. Its best feature is a back porch that overlooks the beach, perfect for meals and late afternoon cocktails. The cottage is comfortable and tidy with nice furnishings, and a housekeeper comes each day to keep things tidy and clean. An outside charcoal grill, beach chairs, books and a television (with cable hook-up) complete the amenities. The property owners have recently renovated and updated some parts of the cottage and have plans to replace some furnishings. The cottage is about 20 minutes on foot to a grocery store and about 45 minutes to downtown Hamilton. It was a very comfortable and relaxing cottage that gave my friend and me a wonderful memory of Bermuda. I would recommend it to anyone interested in a quiet and relaxing home away from home. A great value for the money!"

A little slice of heaven!
"I was searching for a beach cottage for our last few nights in Bermuda and came across this property. It's purely magical in every way, from the moment you drive up the narrow winding driveway to reach the cottage perched above a glorious sandy private beach. You know you have arrived! The cottage is very well appointed with fresh towels and linens including beach towels and sun chaises, umbrellas etc. There is a barbecue and a covered patio overlooking the beach and ocean...We consider ourselves to be well travelled but this place just seemed to glow in it's own aura! The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable and the lounge/dining rooms are very spacious and thoughtfully appointed. The timber floors are a great touch and of course the proximity to the city couldn't be better. The cottage is fully air conditioned and includes cable television. There is a grocery store about 2 minutes away as well as a pharmacy and hairdressers etc. We will certainly be coming back to this place! Bruce, Alison and Craig. Sydney, Australia"

"Our family has stayed at the Grape Bay cottages 3 times in the last 5 years. We aren't the type to consistantly "re-visit" vacation spots, but this one is the exception to this rule. There are 2 quaint cottages which each have a path to a very private beach. They are located close to town, just a short moped ride away. A favorite dinner is to go to the fresh outdoor seafood market and grill your "catch" on the BBQ back at "home". I would recommend these cottages to anyone who enjoys making their own fun and doesn't need an "event coordinator" to tell them what to do. (We're going back this June '05-I can't wait!)"

"I rented both cottages for my Dad's 50th Birthday and we made it a small family reunion (8 people total). The cottages are clean and pleasant, but not fancy. However, the location is absolutely stunning - just steps from a powdery pink sand beach that seems to stretch forever, lush vegetation and flowers. The porch of the closer cottage has an idyllic view over the ocean and surf. The owners provided great service, and the place is very private. It was a terrific event that we all still talk about fondly."
