"My boyfriend and I just got back from the most amazing stay with Sabrina in Bermuda. The cottage is in the best location (right next to Pompano beach resort and on the Port Royal Golf course) and had the most amazing view of the island. Sabrina is a very busy woman, but still managed to meet our every need. She will be your best advocate while on the island and always makes herself available to answer questions, help book reservations through her personal connections, and essentially be your own personal guide to Bermuda. She even went out of her way to take us to some really special places on the island on our last night, places we would have never known about or been able to see without her! She is just a genuinely nice and hospitable person, and we felt so welcomed the whole time. The room was cozy and perfect for two people, a great deal for the price. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay, Sabrina!"Guest: Lindsey B. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 23, 2014View listing
"The owner Wayne was a very friendly, helpful, hospitable individual.He immediately took us to the grocery store after we arrived. We were there during the hurricane,he went well beyond what he needed to do during our stay. Due to the power outage, he provided transportation to restaurants, and places we wanted to go to. I would recommend his property to anyone looking to travel to Bermuda."Guest: Jim and Bonny Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 23, 2014View listing
"Everything that people have written about Oyster Point is true: Breathtaking and idyllic location, close to restaurants, beaches, and a marketplace, a private and fully stocked cottage filled with essentials. Although necessary and important, these components are not what make Oyster Point remarkable. The element that makes Oyster Point so special is our Hosts: Dorothy, Brian, their family and of course, Abbie and Zooey. My husband and I had an unplanned extension to our vacation, as tropical storm Fay hit the island. Brian and Dorothy couldn't have been more accommodating to us. We were treated like family friends. I'm still a bit stunned how warm, kind and welcoming they were to us. You may notice when staying at Oyster Point the framed print on the wall stating: 'Enter as strangers, leave as friends'. Perhaps that saying may be trite elsewhere, but at Oyster Point, the statement is fact. Thank you, we will be back!"Guest: Suzanne C.
