About Our Location: Sand Dollar is at Marley Beach in Warwick. Many readers may be aware of the former hotel called Marley Beach Cottages -- Sand Dollar was formerly a part of that hotel, although it has been substantially upgraded since the property was a hotel.


Steps away from a beautiful and private beach, central to just about everything anyone could wish to do in Bermuda with convenient bus stops at the bottom of the driveway, restaurants within walking distance, golf, tennis, sightseeing and shopping only minutes away..... This is a rare gem in Bermuda for the visitor who doesn't want the large hotel stay and prefers to get out and do their own exploring and discovery based in one of the most romantic, private and spectacular settings in Bermuda!

Sunrises, Sunsets and Whales: Sand Dollar faces south, and no matter the time of year or weather, the sunrises and sunsets are nothing short of spectacular!

Whale watching is wondrous in the springtime, with frequent sightings early in the mornings and early evenings during March, April, and sometimes into May. The whales are often within half a mile of the beach as they come in during the night to protect their young. You don't need binoculars to watch them frolicking, breeching and just cavorting in Bermuda's tranquil and protected waters.

During the summer months, the snorkeling on private Marley Beach is magical. You can even see scores of large parrot fish feeding on the reefs close in to the shore with your naked eye right from the terrace overlooking the beach.

IF YOU HAVE MORE PEOPLE: We also have a studio apartment on the property. It's called Sand Pebble Studio. This is a large studio with kitchen, full bath, large bed/sitting room, patio etc. You can view this unit on this website.
you might like to consider also renting the studio if you have a larger party. It is suitable for two and can be set up with king bed or twins.

The studio rents at $2,230 per week in the 2012 summer months, and $1,500 per week in the winter months.

                                        We stayed here with our three teenage children. The unit was clean, well maintained and the description given by the owner was accurate. The listing photos accurately reflect the rental appearance and amenities. There is a bus stop close by, but we rented 3 scooters for getting around the island. An excellent property that I would recommend to friends and relatives.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                                        Just got back from a week stay at Sea Song cottage which is adjacent to this one. These cottages are some of the best Bermuda has to offer. They're clean, spacious, updated and the location is fantastic. As you can see in the pictures, the cottages overlook the ocean in almost every direction. And walking down the hill, you have a beautiful private beach to enjoy. Truly amazing place to enjoy Bermuda's beauty. No wonder these cottages book so far in advance. Bermuda's hidden treasures.

                                        Absolutely fabulous stay at Marley Beach in the Sand Dollar cottage. First, Steve is a great man - booking the stay was simple and Steve was extremely helpful with all of my questions. Second...the 'cottage' far exceeded our expectations. We have a family of 5 including 3 kids - ages 20, 19, and 16. There was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was great and we were able to eat breakfast and several dinners at the cottage. The cottage is quite close to many of the fabulous south beaches. The snorkeling and swimming at Marley Beach was amazing and quite private! The kids had a blast snorkeling all over Bermuda. It was great to arrive home in the afternoons and be able to take a dip in the water. The pictures do not do justice of the view from the outside deck...AMAZING - my friends could not believe that the pictures I took from the back patio and the master bedroom were copied from the internet...it took some convincing for them to believe that we were taking them from the cottage. The close proximity to the bus stop was a big help in cutting down on the cost of cabs. I can truely not say enough about how great this cottage was - the proximity to everything, the helpfulness of Steve, the space we had, the views, the beach...I cannot wait to go back. Lastly, Steve is close by if you need him but definitely not intrusive. He provided us with a phone to us during our stay - quite a gracious host. LOVED THIS PLACE!

                                        You will not be disappointed staying at this incredible cottage. We had the most spectacular time. The views are breath-taking and who can ever complain about a private beach!! The cottage has every amenities you would need. Steve was wonderful explaining everything to us and left us with a phone for our use. Calling for a taxi is very simple and they are very punctual. We took the bus many times to the local grocery store with no difficulties. The beauty of this cottage is also location as the bus stops are right at the end of the driveway. Horseshoe bay is only a few stops away....but honestly after going there..we left early and went back to our piece of heaven beach to enjoy the serenity of it all. The Swizzle Inn is a short walk from the cottage and has some nightly entertainment and great drinks. I will definitely return to this beautiful Beach Front cottage!! You will not be disappointed. The house was very clean, plenty of sheets, towels, and a washer and dryer making the return home much easier.

                                        Our family of 6 stayed at the Sand Dollar cottage this past June. From the moment we arrived at Marley Beach, we knew we had chosen one of the best accommodations on the island. Sand Dollar has "everything" a family could possibly need to feel at home, yet on an exotic vacation! The views from the cottage; especially the master bedroom and the deck are exquisite! Bermuda is so clean, the weather is perfect and the people are so kind and helpful. This is our new most favorite island.... When we return, we would not even think about staying anywhere else! Thanks Steve for all your hospitality. Susan - Absecon, NJ

                                        Our family stayed in the Sand Dollar Cottage in Bermuda in early May of 2012. Although our trip happened to coincide with a cold front in the Atlantic, meaning we were not able to swim and relax on the beach as much as we had wanted to, the comfort and convenience of the cottage offered us the relaxation we came for. The cottage has two beautiful bedrooms, with the master one overlooking an unbelievable view of the water and cliff. And the water was only a few steps away down below --- crystal clear and inviting despite the cold. Although tourists cannot rent cars in Bermuda, given the small size of the island we found navigating it by bus was not too difficult and even fun as we watched the bus driver navigate the small streets with precise skill. We only stayed for one week, but had plenty of time to explore most of the beautiful island, visiting the parishes, hiking on the railway trail, and interacting with the friendly locals. During our visit a cruise ship docked and so we had a sense what the island is like with few tourists and with many. The former situation is more peaceful, but fewer restaurants are open and less events take place in downtown Hamilton, the capital. The latter situation makes for more crowded buses and restaurant lines, but the whole island seemed livelier at the same time. We bought our own groceries and brought them to the cottage by bus, which is an ordeal but is less expensive than always eating out. The restaurants in Bermuda are definitely expensive, since everything is imported. All in all, the people are friendly, the island is simply picturesque, and the activities (including scuba diving) are good reasons to visit this island and especially to stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage. We thank Steve Martin, the owner, once again for his dedication, help, and hospitality.

                                        My fiancee and I chose Bermuda and the Sand Dollar as our honeymoon destination, in part because neither of us had ever been there before. Steve was very gracious and helpful from the start, providing helpful information and a beautiful cottage. We explored every bit of Bermuda by every means of transportation: foot, pedal bike, scooter, bus and ferry, and the more we saw the more we felt this was the perfect location: convenient to bus stops, the Rail Trail, parks, markets, and the Swizzle Inn Warwick location. The kitchen allowed us to have breakfast and several dinners conveniently on our own patio, where the view was absolutely beautiful. The private beach was the icing on the cake.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, sightseeing, adventure seekers, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                                        We just returned from our week-long stay at Sand Dollar and it was a vacation to remember always! The beach is so very close and so very secluded and so very gorgeous. The view from the house of the south shore is spectacular-- sunrises, rainbows, longtails and more. The bedrooms spoiled us-- much bigger than what we are used to at home and the wireless internet was very helpful so we could "explore" the island online during our stay. Oh, and then there is Stephen-- your host and guide to all things Bermuda. He's an absolute charmer!!!

                                        If you are looking for a fantastic, breathtaking, relaxed, comfortable, fun stay in a great location...stay at the Sand Dollar Cottage! Amazing views with beach access, close to more amazing beaches, & a stone's throw from enjoying a swizzle cocktail at the Swizzle Inn South Side. This was our 2nd trip to Bermuda. The 1st time we stayed at an overpriced, mediocre hotel that was in need of some major renovations. This time, we went with another couple and stayed at the Sand Dollar. It was just perfect and a surprisingly more affordable stay. The owner, Steve, is a total sweetheart and so helpful if needed. The cottage is very clean, comfortable beds, could use a little updating here & there...but all & all a charming cottage! The 4 of us are already scoping out our next stay at the Sand Dollar. Would definitely recommend it to anyone! The Sand Dollar is a BERMUDIFUL place to stay!!!

                                        I just returned home from Bermuda yesterday and I can't wait to get back to Sand Dollar next summer. This cottage was perfect for 2 couples who love to relax, go to the beach and cook great dinners. I am honestly not a hotel person, I prefer to brew my own coffee and sit on a cliff overlooking a beautful private beach. The cottage is very clean and has everything you need for a beach getaway. We rented scooters but there is a bus stop at the end of the driveway and taxis are minutes away when you call. This is by far my favorite area of Bermuda. It is close to town but on a peaceful sanctuary of lush vegetation and the sound crashing waves. Steve the owner is so nice. Greeted us on arrival and was always a call away if we needed anything. To sum it all up..I burst into tears when I buckled my seat belt on the airplane just wishing for one more week.
