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 Southampton

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!

Relaxing Stay with Amazing Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week at Chris and Donna's studio apartment. It is located close to The Reef's Resort which conveniently has it's own bus stops on the #7 line. The studio is large, clean, and had everything we needed during our stay. The stove, refrigerator, microwave, washer, and dryer were great amenities that we took full advantage of. The studio is located within walking distance of Church Bay, Horseshoe Bay, and Gibbs Lighthouse. The view at the studio is absolutely amazing. In the morning, we watched the sun come up over the ocean from the bed and in the afternoon we were able to watch a stunning sunset from the pool. Chris and Donna welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine and fresh fruit (we loved the passion fruit). The studio is a 30 minute bus ride to Dockyard and Hamilton on the #7 bus, which made traveling the island very convenient. The apartment was everything we needed and really made our stay enjoyable.

Ready to return.

  • 5 of 5

Rock Sound was the perfect spot for our honeymoon in Bermuda. In fact, we’re sitting in the ATL Airport talking about our return! The studio apartment was well-appointed, in a beautiful location on the beachy South shore, and within walking distance to a delicious dinner at the Reef’s Coconuts. The poolside is perfect to watch the sun set into the ocean. Though we rented cycles from the legendary Mrs. T at Elbow Beach Cycles (she will pick you up!), with the Reef’s across the street, the bus lands near the base of the driveway. We ate breakfast just outside of the studio every day and grilled a few dinners ourselves. Donna and Chris were so kind and set us up perfectly- their preferred taxi driver Shawn (so friendly and helpful) picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and their German Shepherd, sweet Zoro, let us know when someone was coming up the driveway to see us! We will be back ASAP! Thanks D&C!

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.
