The Homestead has been in the family for three generations. Maintaining the historic exterior appearance was critical to our plans when the interior was updated to suit modern occupancy. Care was taken that architectural details in the main building such as high ceilings, wooden trim mouldings around the walls close to the ceilings and deep wooden window and door sills, were kept. The carriage house still displays the original rings that tethered retired race horses the owners grandfather imported from New York in the late 1930's. The walled in garden is currently being cleared and will soon be available for the quiet relaxation of Homestead guests.
Step back into history by vacationing in the town of St. George's where 17th century buildings are still used today. Explore the narrow cobblestone streets and discover the uniqueness of a World Heritage site.
"This was our 4th visit to St. George and our 4th stay with the Snaiths. We love the Island, the people and the weather and we do appreciate the paradise that exists here! We will be back for more! Thank you for wonderful hospitality yet again!!"

The perfect base to explore St George's and the rest of the beautiful island. Very convenient transport links to Hamilton and Dockyard. Achilles Bay is special and we were the only visitor's on Drew 's Bay. The owners were very friendly and helpful which contributed to a wonderful holiday. We'd love to return.
We loved how close we were to everything, the beach, the grocery store, the bus stops and all that St. George's had to offer. The apartment was just the right size for two ladies. The grounds were well kept and had places for us to sit and have our meals outside. We are planning to return.
We are frequent visitors to the lovely island of Bermuda. And due to years of positive and pleasurable stays in this beautiful paradise we've recommended Bermuda to friends and family who also reside in the U.S. We are pleased to say many of them are also repeated visitors....often coming around the end of July to enjoy Cupmatch festivities.
However, our last stay (July 25 through August 1, 2015) in the Snaith’s cottage in St. George was a very disappointing visit. The cottage's façade belied actually what awaited us. A forewarning was the Snaith’s greeting - lacking Bermudian hospitality. Inside, the cottage was neat and appeared clean. But, after we settled in we began to notice that what first appeared as order was just a window dressing. We had to immediately replace a filthy toilet brush, and then there was the disturbing constant peeling of the kitchen cabinet which appeared to have active termite activity (was this an infestation putting guests at risk?). Picture Peaceful nights were impossible sleeping on day beds - too short for average heights. If we stretched out, our feet hung uncomfortably off the end of the bed. Picture # We also were repulsed by a heavily stained and unsightly mattresses. Picture # The furniture in the living room was worn and soiled. At that point we just didn’t trust the sanitary conditions of the cottage. Surely, the hosts thought more of their guests and took a degree of pride in their properties?
But, our entire visit was not marred by the substandard condition of this cottage. We had decided to extend our stay before we arrived in Bermuda and Fortunately!! this cottage was booked after August 1st! That was a blessing. So we found other lodgings in another part of the island and we had a great experience! We were so appreciative that friends who came with us stayed at other guest houses around the island. And, they had no problem with their accommodations. We would have been embarrassed, to say the least, if they stayed at the Snaith’s guest quarters.
Please understand that we do not demand high end facilities or expect perfection. But, we do expect a certain standard of sanitary and comfort. Bermuda is a beautiful island, but a great vacation can quickly turn sour if your lodgings are that compromised. Hopefully corrective action takes place....and soon.
This cottage is beautiful, clean, spacious, and private. I will always choose to stay here while traveling to Bermuda. The owners were wonderful and hospitable and respected my privacy but yet could be reached at a moments notice. This was my first experience with renting a cottage and will alsways travel this way!
Great time, Trudy and Kenneth were super sweet and accomadating. Very comfortable and great location close to beach and town square. Would love to stay again.
We just returned from a week at Homestead. We are a group of 7 adult family members and boyfriends from 3 different places- 3 from NC, 2 from NYC, and 2 from the UK. We met here for a week and it was perfect. We rented all 3 apartments, so each group had their own place for privacy. Each day everyone went as they wanted to go, and in the evenings, we gathered in the yard for family dinner time. It was a perfect vacation, and Ken and Trudy are great landlords! I would recommend it to any travelers. The location was perfect- easy walk to grocery store, town, and Tobacco Bay (a bit hilly that direction, but taxis will run easily). Quick walk to bus stop as well, or rent mopeds and go on your own. We couldn't be more pleased with our trip.
A World Heritage site. Accommodation is in quiet residential area and within walking distance to town center, beaches, restaurants and shopping. About 10 minutes from airport.
