We found Hibiscus Hideaway to be a comfortable air-conditioned self-catering studio apartment located in a quiet neighbourhood. The whole apartment was clean and well maintained with a comfortable double bed, sofa, well-appointed en-suite bathroom (with shower) and well equipped kitchenette with all of the essentials. The air conditioner was very easy to control and worked efficiently. We found the books on Bermuda and leaflets in the apartment on the local attractions and places to visit very useful in planning our days out. The Wifi was stable and reliable and the offer to use the swimming pool was appreciated.
The Studio apartment was easy walking distance to centre of Hamilton with its ferry station, bus station, and a very good variety of restaurants, shops and convenience/grocery stores. Jack and Linda were extremely welcoming, easy to approach and very willing to offer local advice which helped to make our stay on this beautiful island extremely enjoyable.
Overall a great value for money apartment in a great convenient suburban location.

Happiness is 5 minutes away in Hamilton Bermuda! A brisk walk can land you at a jolly Pub or a coffee and danish spot! Beautiful weather and directions from the host to the bus terminal led me on a scenic route to other places of interest on the island. It was a delightful week staying in this comfortable addition upstairs from the main house. The communication and trip guidance from the host was fantastic and greatly enhanced my vacation! Absolutely I plan to return!

I'll start by mentioning this: we have rented apartments in Bermuda upwards of 10 times over the past eight years. Hibiscus Hideaway is, by far, the best property we've ever stayed at for a variety of reasons: The owners literally bent over backwards to ensure all of our needs were met (before, during & after our travel to Bermuda), the location of this property is ideal (literally a 5 minute walk from everything that beautiful downtown Hamilton has to offer), the unit is immaculate, complete with full kitchen & bath (it even has a washer/dryer!) & overall, it was an excellent value for the money. There is no reason to look any further if you are looking for a romantic getaway with your sweetie. Hibiscus Hideaway truly has it all!

I lived in Hibiscus Hideaway while on a work assignment in Bermuda, and I couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay. There is no place on the island I would recommend more highly.
UNIT: The studio had everything I needed: washer/dryer in the unit, kitchen, full fridge, nice bathroom with a towel warmer, television, etc. It was cleaned regularly by the hosts and was always in pristine condition. Any maintenance issues were resolved the same day, unless the one plumber/electrician on the island was on vacation :-)
LOCATION: The location made this place perfect. It’s only a 5-10 minute walk to downtown Hamilton, which has everything you will need. It’s easy to get a scooter, but I appreciated that I didn’t need to because this location was within walking distance to everything – grocery store, bus terminal, ferry terminal, restaurants, shops, etc. Hibiscus Hideaway is the perfect mix of a serene residential area with the convenience of being on the cusp of downtown.
PROPERTY: Not only do you have access to the studio apartment, but the landlords grant access to the beautiful pool and terrace. I spent many afternoons reading by the pool or jumping in to “woodle” (wine on a noodle) with the hosts and friends. The property is well landscaped and beautifully kept.
HOSTS: The best part about my time in Bermuda was Jack and Linda. They are the kindest people you will ever meet, and they genuinely care about the happiness of their guests. Within 30 minutes of my arrival and them showing me the studio, they said, “are you up for an adventure?” and took me out in their boat on the unbelievably beautiful water of Bermuda. That’s the kind of people they are and I am lucky to now call them my friends.
In short, if you are looking for a cozy, quiet space with access to downtown Hamilton and transportation hubs, and you want a well-kept property with kind and caring landlords, Hibiscus Hideaway is the place for you.

We just returned from our third trip to Bermuda two days ago. For our previous trips we stayed at the Royal Palms Hotel which was out of this world. This time we wanted to try an efficiency apartment for a change and we weren't disappointed. Hibiscus Hideaway is just around the corner from the Royal Palms and we were able to walk to the centre of Hamilton in 10 minutes. The unit was clean and quiet and the hosts were unobtrusive but very friendly and responsive. We ate out half the time, but found a very up-market supermarket (Miles) about 10 minutes away with great produce and meat. We are already planning our next (even longer) visit. We would absolutely recommend it as a great place to stay and (by Bermuda standards) a very reasonable price.

Centrally-located, comfortable, clean and well-appointed, with a very warm welcome ... what's not to love? 'Hibiscus Hideaway' is centrally located, just minutes' walk from the centre of Bermuda's capital city, Hamilton. You are quite literally close to everything: shops, restaurants, pubs, entertainment and public transport (taxi ranks, bus and ferry terminals). And after a 'hard day' of sightseeing and shopping, you can take a refreshing dip in the property's pool, surrounded by flowering shrubs and trees. The studio has A/C, TV, WiFi, a bright bathroom and fully-equipped cozy kitchen ... there is even a compact washer & drier. Highly recommended.

Clean, bright, well-appointed, easy walk to Hamilton. Just what we wanted for our long weekend stay. Owners were ready with recommendations and directions and so welcoming.

This little apartment is perfect in every way, hosts were brilliant and it was a great 3 night start to our 2 week holiday.
The pool looked lovely but didn’t swim in it, the bonus is also the location as 5/10 mins walk to all of the action of front street.
The apartment had everything you need- thank you again Linda and Jack.

Jack and Linda's property was fantastic! A very very short walk to town and the ferry terminal. As well as two resteraunts only a couple minutes walk. The single bed pull out worked perfectly for my brother and I to share the space. We had a very comfortable stay and will be looking them up for our next bermudian adventure!

Excellent location, just a short walk to all the amenities including the bus and ferry terminals, which we found to be very reliable. The studio has all the basic facilities you need on holiday and was very clean and comfortable. We had the full use of the pool and practically had it to ourselves for our two week stay. Linda and Jack were the perfect hosts, so helpful and friendly but not intrusive in any way. We were lucky enough to go out with them on their boat to Paradise Lake, which was just amazing! Topped off with some of Jack's rum cake, which was delicious, what more could you ask for?!

My wife and I stayed for 7 days at the Hibuscus Hideaway studio at Homing, Richmond Road. The bed was so comfortable we wish we could have taken it home with us to Australia. The kitchenette and bathroom were spotless. The owners Jack and Linda were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. As we arrived late in the evening Jack had arranged to buy some basics for us so we would be ok for breakfast on our first day in Bermuda. As part of the rental we also had access to their large swimming pool which was refreshing after a hot day. Also on our last day we were invited to join them at the pool for a swim with a drop of wine which was a delightful gesture. Overall we rate this a top notch place to stay in Bermuda.

Jack and Linda were great hosts. They practically adopted us as part of their family. They invited us to go biking on Sundays along with their friends, took us for a boat ride around Hamilton harbour, and even drove us to a nature park which is hard to get to by bus. Their rental apartment is located close to shopping in Hamilton Harbour, near the bus station, the ferries, and grocery stores. my wife and I had a great holiday.

Jack and Linda are great hosts and extremely helpful with recommendations of things to do and restaurants to visit. Hibiscus Hideaway is only 5 minutes from town and 10 minutes from Front Street by the water and the ferry.
Bed is comfy, bathroom is fine and there is a little space to sit down on a settee. TV a bit complicated for me. Kitchen is OK and some starter items were in the fridge. Plenty of lovely white fluffy towels which were changed midweek. Not modern facilities but satisfactory. All in all a pleasant week at Bermuda’s capital made better by great hosts.

Everything was just great. It is the must place to go. It was the perfect place to stay
From the studio that is 3 minutes from the center of Hamilton, you can easily go to anyplace. The councils given by the owners, the conversations we had with them we went home and telling to everybody that their next destination has to be that place and that studio.

We had a great time in Bermuda! The Hibiscus House was perfect. Very quaint and cozy. The location is close to great restaurants, shopping, ferry etc. The cost was affordable compared to the resort prices. And owners, Jack and Linda were accommodating and helpful with suggestions of sites and restaurants! Jack even gave us a drive around the area and pointed out places of interest. A very nice couple!
