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.

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

This property is located in a lovely area, very convenient to bus, close to Southhampton Hotel, Henry VIII restaurant and Gibb's Hill. Nice walking trail nearby too! Inside is nicely furnished with all the things you need to live comfortably. The outside amenities are not exactly as described - the outside grill is an old rather rusty hibachi that uses charcoal and the Adirondack chairs have seen better days for sure. I would have appreciated a food safety warning as the kitchen was full of tiny ants as soon as they found my food - do not leave any food in the cupboards, keep it in the fridge. Having said all this, I would go back to this location. I fell in love with Bermuda, the colors, the water, the sand, the local people! Do yourself a favor and visit!

Panatola is a wonderful, economical alternative to staying in a hotel. I highly recommend you consider this as an option when visiting Bermuda--you won't be disappointed.

Conveniently located a pleasant ten-minute walk from the Fairmont Southampton, I stayed here while attending a conference as an alternative to the conference hotel. I often do this to get more of a local experience. Panatola is also a very short walk from Gibb's Hill lighthouse, which is listed as one the top things to see/do while in Bermuda. You will also be close to the best beaches in Bermuda--I went down for a swim at Horseshoe Bay while here.

I look forward to returning some day, and I already know where I will stay!

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!
