About Chris and Donna

We are a husband and wife who were both involved in the hotel industry in Bermuda for over 20 years. We want you to be our guests and get to know the island we love so much.

Chris and Donna purchased this studio in 2011

Why Chris and Donna chose Bermuda

We bought Rock Sound in 2011 after looking at dozens of homes. As soon as we saw Rock Sound we fell in love with it as it is in a wonderful neighbourhood with amazing views and lots to do nearby.

What makes this studio unique

Rock Sound is literally across the road from the famous Reefs Hotel with its restaurants, bars, beach and spa. Within a mile is the Fairmont Southampton hotel with numerous restaurants, beach, bars, water sports, tennis and golf. But what really makes this a special place to stay is the proximity of beaches, restaurants, Gibbs Hill lighthouse and public transportation. You could not find a place to stay with all of this without paying hotel resort costs!

Great location and hostess

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was larger than it appeared online, kitchen was well equipped, pool was fabulous and the location was great! Easy to get to both ends of the island and well-known beaches/attractions by bus. Donna made sure we had everything we needed for a trouble-free stay. She made sure it was easy for us to get to/from the airport and had all the info we needed to plan activities during the week.

"Perfect" is not a strong enough descriptor...

  • 5 of 5

Rock Sound is an extraordinary spot. The location on the south shore is close to excellent beaches, multiple dining choices (many within walking distance) and steps away from reliable public transportation. The apartment itself is very well appointed, clean, safe, roomy. The kitchen is outfitted for just about anything you may want to make for your meals. The entrance to the apartment is well away from where the homeowners access their home so it feels very private. The pool and surrounding area is very inviting and relaxing. Your hosts (Donna and Chris) are extremely nice people who have found the perfect balance between being helpful to their guests while not imposing upon your privacy. And, of course, the views are stunning. We would highly recommend Rock Sound for your Bermuda vacation.

Gracious hosts, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay at Rock Sound . The weather was perfect , the place was gorgeous and Donna and Chris were very helpful . We loved the view from the house, having the pool to ourselves and the fact that Church Bay beach was just a quick walk . We used the bus system which worked really well. Had dinner at Swizzle Inn, The Lighthouse, and several places at the Dockyard. Crystal Cave was amazing as was the famous HorseShoe Bay. Water was crystal clear and although a little chilly did not keep us from swimming each day . Glad to have come just before the busy season, made for a relaxing and amazing honeymoon .. We highly recommend Rock Sound, we loved it !!!!!

Beautiful Bermuda!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, good size, excellent location seeing the ocean from your bed what a way to start the day! Apartment had everything you need, bus stop at the end of the lane! Bed and pillows were nice and comfy. Very private. Patio was nice for morning coffee. Time of year was a little cooler maybe an extra blanket or throw for the sofa in the evening while watching tv or reading is the only thing I wished I had. Would recommend this rental to anyone, the host Donna was great in making arrangements for anything you needed as well. Bermuda is a lovely place to visit, friendly and welcoming, be in shape though, lots of walking and LOTS of hills!
