About JUANITA JONES
My name is Juanita. I am the youngest of 5 and am delighted to carry on the torch of the Jones family.
Why JUANITA JONES chose Southampton
This property was built by my father some 25 years ago and we consider this to be the best spot in Bermuda with easy access to any attraction.

Save a little money w Juanita
Good central location. Clean accommodations. As some had commented when I was researching, we found it was possible to make the pleasant walk to the South Shore beaches...about 20 minutes. Walking works in general for the surrounding neighborhood, but since there isn't always a sidewalk, try and avoid rush hour or walking along the roads after sundown. The public buses are cheap AND reliable...it just takes a little effort to figure them out (exact Bermuda coins or tickets...no paper money). Cabs are considerably more expensive and not always around where you might need them. Buy a book of tickets if you can for the buses. Even if you don't use them all, your individual rides will be even cheaper by buying a book of tickets. The ferries work sort of the the same way as the buses and are recommended for larger scenic skips around the island. US money taken EVERYWHERE we went...you just might get Bermuda change. The supermarket nearby is good, especially if you plan to cook a bit (adjoining bakery fresh and very good), and we had a nice fresh lunch at the nearby Island Cuisine restaurant. Wahoo's Restaurant...good seafood, nice people, if you find yourself in St. George's parish. Another great money saver: go to the deli/grill INSIDE the "Pharmacy" for light lunch at the Dockyards (tables outside). Fresh, and much cheaper than the nearby pub-style sit-down restaurants. Those are also perfectly good...just more expensive and larger portions...depends what kind of lunch you're looking for. Juanita is a good resource for questions. Thanks!
Jason and I loved our stay here. Juanita was wonderful---the fresh bananas were a sweet touch! can't beat the location---being able to walk to Horseshoe Beach was awesome. The mopeds got us everywhere else we wanted to be. can't wait for our next bermudaful vacation! would stay here again in a heartbeat.
A great place to stay for a couple. Had everything you need for a peaceful stay. It seemed as if we had the place to ourselves. The most "noise" was from the tree frogs. The air conditioning worked great and you do not hear it cycle on and off which made it perfect for sleeping. Being so close to the market and the delicious bakery made it easy to get items for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Let me suggest fresh made croissants from the bakery and sliced meat & cheese from the deli in the market. Another plus is the restaurant, Island Cuisine. Wonderful food - try the mashed pumpkin - YUM!! Then get your ice cream fix at Scoops.
The water filtered from the roof (which is the Bermudian way) is quite good - liked it better than the water you get in the restaurants. The hairdryer and drying rack were a big help. The internet access was quick and reliable. Would have liked to have some chairs with backs in the unit for sitting at the table. However, there are several options for sitting outside including a wicker rocking chair. The good sized private backyard provides a wonderful place for relaxation in the evening.
So...if you want to enjoy Bermuda without the resort prices then I would recommend staying at this private paradise.
Thanks for choosing us for your vacation stay. You guys were great guest and It would be my pleasure to have you here again. Until next time.
Awesome private location
Enjoyed our 8 day stay at this spot which is a studio in walk-out basement. The unit is quite affordable and meets one's needs. No ocean view but that downside is offset with the location - you are steps away from the bus stop, a shopping market that includes a grocery store, a shop that is the Bermudian equivalent to "Dollar General", bakery, ice cream shop and a tasty diner. And if you rent a scooter, 5 minutes from beaches (up and over the hill), Gibbs Lighthouse and a beautiful 20 minute (max!) ride along Harbour Road to Hamilton. Enjoy YOUR stay if you choose here.
Good base for exploring Bermuda
We really enjoyed our stay here. My husband and I rented a scooter so we really got to explore the beautiful island. We were out pretty much all day long but were very comfortable in our Bermudian home once back from our explorations. The apartments had a good kitchen with good supplies and we used it to make breakfast every morning!
So glad you guys had a great stay and had fun exploring Bermuda. See you next time.
Nice Studio, Good To Have Kitchen, 20 Minute Walk To Beach
My wife and I stayed at Juanita's house in Dec2016. We liked the cozy studio with the sitting areas and kitchen. The kitchen meant that we could have relaxed breakfasts as well as evening wine and cheese in the room. We were there to play golf and the location is between Mid-Ocean and Port Royal, with the closest course being the beautiful Turtle Hill par 3 course. It was great to have the supermarket just .25 miles away, so we always had food available in the apartment. All but one restaurant is a taxi ride away for dinner (I wouldn't want to walk back from any others in the dark). Horseshoe Beach was about a 20 minute walk, which also brought you close to the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and the Fairmont Southampton Hotel. The price was right, the location was good, and the apartment was CLEAN. What more could you want?
Thanks Steve. So glad you both enjoyed your stay.
Only a 3 minute walk from our rental property is the Riddell's Bay Golf Course, which opened in 1922 and is the oldest golf course in Bermuda. Also within a 3 minutes walk from the property is the Heron Bay Market Place, Island Cuisine Restaurant and our Public Transportation System that will carry you to the West and to the East sides of the Island. A must see attraction in the West is the Royal Naval Dockyard which offers great history of our Island as well as shopping, restaurants, Bermuda's Rum Cake factory and much more. To get to the Royal Naval Dockyard you must pass over the smallest draw bridge in the world, the Somerset Bridge. Some other attractions are Fort Scaur, the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and one of the most famous beaches in the world, the Horseshoe Beach where you will find the most beautiful turquoise water and pink sand. The capital of Bermuda is the City of Hamilton which is centrally located on the Island. In the City you will find the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, St. Theresa's Catholic Cathedral, Libraries, Bermuda's main Port, Shopping and the Business district. Our simplistic bus system and friendly drivers will help you navigate all over the Island with ease. So continuing to the East would be a breeze where many more attractions await you. A must see is the Historic Town of St. George, Bermuda's first capital, Fort St. Catherines, St. Peter's Church, the Crystal Caves, the Bermuda Aquarium & Zoo and Gibbons Gardens. Bermuda is so unique. Whether you explore by public transportation, moped or private taxi/mini bus you will be intrigued by its charm, beauty and allure.
