About Scott Stewart

I live on the property which has been in the family for 50+ years. It is a substantial home in an exclusive neighborhood. I enjoy meeting and assisting my guests in answering their questions and making sure their Bermuda vacation is the best ever. Bermuda is famed for its hospitality, clean and safe environment and it is my job to preserve its reputation. I want every one of my guest's to enjoy a 5 star experience.

Scott Stewart purchased this studio in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Bermuda February 5-14. Our original departure date was February 10. Because of the snowstorms on the East Coast we had to stay a little longer than planned. We were staying in a guest apartment called Summerside (listing# 59845) owned by Scott Stewart. When our stay got extended by the weather, he allowed us to stay as long as possible before we had to move out. He went above and beyond the call of duty and found us another place to stay. He even drove us over to our new place.



I believe Scott represents what Bermuda is ... warm, friendly and helpful. We cannot thank him enough for all that he did. We also enjoyed all the wonderful people from The Spot that welcomed us warmly everyday. We looked forward to seeing them as they made us feel a part of the community. Our only disappointment was the fact that Fort St. Catherine was not open. With all that being said, because of Scott Stewart and his kindness, the Kingston House taking us in, The Spot making us feel welcome and our wonderful cab driver, Lionel Woolridge, we will be returning in the near future. I have recommended Bermuda to everyone I know. Thanks for making my 50th birthday very special.

Excellent value, exceptional view

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to Bermuda and it won't be our last. The apartment was exactly as described and fully equipped with linens, hair dryer and kitchen essentials. The place is located about 2 miles from the ferry in Hamilton. We stayed 9 nights and walked to town every morning. From there we used the ferry and bus system to get around and visit all the various and wonderful sights. The walk is slightly down hill. The roads are narrow, so just stay alert. At the end of the day, we simply hailed a cab and the fare was about $10 plus tip to get back to the unit. We figured this was safer than renting a scooter. And, it ended up being the more economical route as well. You can get a combination ferry/bus pass that's good on all routes by the day, week or month. They prorate the month, so we got a 10 day pass for $64 each. We were able to ferry out to the Dockyard and St. George's as well as many other locations, beaches and restaurants.

Scott and Sara are very nice. We appreciated them checking in on us and appreciated their hospitality. When we return, we will stay here again. Bermuda is a beautiful place and the people are very friendly.

Great Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in the evening and Scott was there to meet us and show us round.

The studio is very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. The view is spectacular and if the weather had been better we would have sat out more on the terrace. We had some warm days and one great sunset.

A good value accommodation especially considering the very high prices some hotels charge.

Scott kindly took us into Hamilton the first morning and showed us various shops and restaurants.

We walked in and out of Hamilton most days (30 minutes each way). Some neighbours stopped to give us a lift sometimes. It is a very friendly and welcoming island.

There is only a microwave and small toaster oven in the studio so minimal cooking is recommended. Scott has a larger apartment with full kitchen for better self catering.

There are nice restaurants in the town but like most things in Bermuda they are expensive. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Scott was on hand to help us as required.

A beautiful island with lovely people. Lots to do and lovely walks especially along the old railway track.

Beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this unit and were pleasantly surprised when we were brought to a 1-bedroom unit rather than the studio. We appreciated the extra room! Our unit and other his other rentals are within a very large home/estate on a hill, overlooking a beautiful cove and the gorgeous aquamarine waters that surround Bermuda. The view from the decks of this property are breathtaking! Walking in the neighborhood is lovely seeing beautiful Bermudian architecture and foliage. Bedroom is quite comfortable; wonderful modern bathroom with very large beautifully tiled walk-in shower. Kitchenette has small microwave, stove and fridge; no dishwasher. Bermuda climate has taken its toll on outside of refrigerator but it worked just fine. Appreciated the coffee and filters provided.

Screen on sliding door to enter unit (into living area) was torn out so we could not leave it open in the evening to get the fresh breeze. Since we were there in Bermuda's winter (no bugs) we did leave door open when we were there during the day. I suspect this was residual damage from October's two hurricane hits and suspect it will be fixed by busy season.

We enjoyed the 30 minute walk into town (and Scott drove us in our first afternoon so we could shop and get some provisions). We did take a cab back evenings - no bus service convenient to this house. There is a very steep hill and stairs to climb to get to this unit so advise against this place for anyone with a walking or health disability. Scott did help us with luggage coming and going.

We did not take advantage of the kayaks offered by Scott as it was winter in Bermuda - which we loved! Low 58; average temperature mid-60s. Perfect weather for walking and exploring!

What a fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find this was!

Scott couldn't have been more helpful, arranging a taxi to meet us at the airport, phoning in to check we had everything we needed as he was away, and again arranging a taxi back to the airport for us when it was time to leave.

The apartment itself had everything we needed, and the views over the Sound are superb. It is a half hour walk into the centre of Hamilton, but it is a nice enough walk and was good for our fitness. The apartment itself is amongst some very nice houses indeed.

We really enjoyed our first trip to Bermuda, and the apartment was just perfect for us - would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind the walk into Hamilton :-)

Amazing views, wonderful location and fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Summerside during the holiday season. I was so happy I decided on Summerside due to it's location to Hamilton. It was a little hike, but I'm a walker so for me it wasn't bad. Plus you get to view all the other beautiful houses in the area!

The views from the room, the balcony and the bed itself were breathtaking. The room was spotless and had everything I needed for my vacation there.

Scott is such an attentive owner and it was great talking with him and setting this trip up. He was so helpful with any questions I had even before I arrived!

I recommended this rental for anyone looking for great views, clean quarters, and convenient location to Hamilton (where all the transportation starts/ends).

Thank you Scott for a wonderful experience during my stay.
