There are four golf courses nearby for you to play: the Fairmont Princess Golf Club (walking distance), Riddell’s Bay, The Belmont Golf Course, and the Port Royal Golf Course are all within 15 minutes of the property by moped and each offers its own unique challenge.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

Very safe neighborhood.

A Southampton location is considered to be a very attractive option for visitors in the know. Although the locations in the closest proximity to the beaches of the South Shore tend to be in the most demand, the 22 mile length of the island and its width of less than a mile in most places means that access to those beaches is easy by bus or by moped and that’s only after you have savored the pretty beaches in the immediate area.

You will have the pleasure of exploring the spectacular beaches along the southern coastline: The stunning Church Bay offer wonderful South Shore snorkeling opportunities as well as pink, shell strewn beaches to explore (the famous ones such as Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay are renowned, but you will not want to miss the stunning trio of secret coves tucked between those two larger beaches- Chaplin Bay, Stonehole Bay and Jobson’s Cove. These three are the last word in romantic pink sand and gentle surf in splendid seclusion. Snorkeling equipment can be rented at Church Bay and several of the larger beaches such as Horseshoe).

Getting around

Public transportation stops are a 10 minute walk. For vacationers wanting to rent scooters or bicycles, you can get them within 10 minutes walk of the property at Smatt's Rental located in the Southampton Princess property or Oleander cycles on South Shore Road.

Other Things to Note

Closer than Hamilton for fine dining are the excellent facilities of The Reefs Resort in Southampton: their open-air Coconuts restaurant overlooking their private silvery sand beach will arrange a table on the beach with candles, full linens and silverware and delectable meal for your never-to-be-forgotten evening celebration. Also The Waterlot Inn at the Southampton Princess Hotel and The Dining Room in the Lighthouse. For more casual dining we have Henry VII restaurant and bar and Ocean Club down on the beach of the Southampton Princess Hotel and many more restaurants.

Bermuda Love

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visit was a win and Panatola studio made that happen. Location with privacy in the shadows of the Gibbs Lighthouse we awoke each day to glorious Bay views as we opened the French door to our homemade breakfast sitting outside. The unit is well equipped and we cooked all breakfast and many dinners there. Closet space great, tv selection perfect, good reading and some movies. Being visited by Lola the pup a plus! Silvia provides milk, oj and kitchen necessities, generously washed our needed laundry since staying 8 nights. We chose pedal bikes for the week, a not so common choice and used the Railway Trail. Not always clearly marked and briefly on busy streets at times were occasional challenges there but we two over 65 loved the adventure. (It is some significant up and down and mountain bike is necessary for the varied terrain). America's Cup qualifying was spectacular and Bermuda Day parade great fun. St George not to be missed ( one of us loved the perfumery) and we had delicious lunch at The Tempest. There is a great hike from Horseshoe for miles with coves, rocks and sea at every corner. A lunch at Gulfstream was delicious ( gf pizza available)Also walked maybe 5 minutes and dined up at the Fairmont's Bacci one dinner feasting on gluten free pasta. Aside from the bikes, we used the bus system and the unit has access to Hamilton/Dockyard buses either on South or Middle road... 15 tickets offer substantial savings and used 4 on ferry rides. Sad to leave, hope to return. Thank you Silvia!

As described

  • 3 of 5

These accommodations are comfortable, sufficient & storage & places to put things are well thought out. All the basics are there, owner is nice & allows privacy.

For us on a personal level, every one is different, didn't care for transportation access & outside amenity is minimal, but one must keep in mind the nightly rate, Bermuda is expensive & it is close to what I saw, the best hotel & beach.

Great Studio, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Panatola Studio for our 10th anniversary. We have been to Bermuda several times and wanted a place that was close to the beaches (Horseshoe Bay & Elbow Beach) and our favorite restaurants (Waterlot and Coconuts). This location was perfect! Not only was it close to all these places, but we could walk to Southampton Fairmont for late night drinks and breakfast. The place itself was very clean and had great views of the ocean. Highly recommend!

Bright and Clean, exactly as pictured!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Panatola Studio. After staying 2 nights in St Georges this location afforded us great access to the rest of Bermuda. We enjoyed walking to Gibbs Light House for the tour and another night for an excellent Dinner. There is walking access to bus routes, but hills so take your time! (We chose not to rent mopeds as there is quite alot of quickly moving traffic on Bermuda, which seemed too challenging when considering the adjustment of driving on the other side of the road and especially roundabouts!) We did take advantage of the close proximity to the Fairmont Southampton for its Restaurants & Shops. Silvia left basic provisions in the Kitchen which was very thoughtful and quite helpful as there is no market within walking distance. The Studio has A/C, Fans & excellent WIFI and TV reception. Budget for a $50 cab ride from the Airport one way. I would definitely recommend the Studio to family and friends!

Quaint, convenient, perfectly stocked, beautiful view...simply lovely

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for a quick get-away. We weren't familiar with Bermuda and feel lucky we settled on Silvia'a place. We walked to the grocery store for staples ( but you can take the local bus) and we walked to beautiful beaches. (We recommend the eco walking tour of the beaches.) The kitchen was stocked with all the plates, dishes and utensils we needed. Silvia kindly left us a small juice and a milk. We enjoyed breakfast and cocktails looking out over the boats bobbing in the bay. We felt charmed by Silvia's place the moment we hit the corner to the entrance. We opened the French doors and the windows and let the breezes wash over us. The bed was comfortable, bathroom large with plenty of towels, and it boasted lots of closet space. We took the bus to the dockyard and into Hamilton. It was a short walk up or down the hill to catch one. We got our tokens at the Fairmont, also close. There were nice restaurants within walking distance. Silvia left us a prepaid cell phone that allowed us to make dinner reservations at those restaurants and call for cabs when desired. To top it all off, my husband thought he left his sun glasses on a bus, but Silvia found them and offered to mail them to us! We know that if it had been a hotel, it is likely we would have never seen them again. I highly recommend this property and its host!

Outstanding location, excellent apartment with everything needed for week's stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location, Silvia is a wonderful host, and their labradoodle Lola is a extra special bonus treat. Silvia recommended an excellent shuttle from the airport to the Fairmount Bridgehampton, the driver dropped us at the back of the hotel and it was a 5 minute walk to the house. She recommended Smatts Cycles (next to the hotel), we rented push bikes for 5 days and toured the entire island. The railway trail was very good in most places - highly recommend it. Great ride from the house down the hill to the rail trail, then out to the Dockyards. Could bike 5 minutes to the grocery store, cooking facilities were great. Had great dinner at the Dining Room restaurant at the lighthouse - 7 minute walk up the hill from the house. Great location for the south coast beaches, all wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Tom and Cindy for your very kind review. I was a pleasure hosting you and I'm still amazed that you went all over on your push bikes. Will have to try it. Hope to see you again on your next visit to the island. Lola says thank you for the cuddles!!
