Why Ralph and Julie Richardson chose Sandys
There are few options for west side ocean front properties. At a half mile from the road, the location is quiet, except for the distant hum of fishing boats passing as they head out to sea and back. As a young couple they spent 10 years with their 4 children as the only family on a 25 Acre Island campsite in Bermuda. They accepted the job as caretakers of a Bermuda Government Campsite so that they could bring up their very young children in a farm environment. The 25 acre island provided that opportunity for 10 years. They often share photos of life on the island as they pass it on their tours. After the island experience, they chose to purchase a house on the waterfront and actually moved via boat to their new home. The children are all out of the house now and they are home alone with occasional visits from their one or two of their 9 grandchildren (soon to be 10). The lower apartment is just right for a couple as it is not large enough for more than two people. Guests love the spot where they can swim, snorkel of kayak from their own back yard. The Apartment has wifi Cable TV. Full standing refrigerator and a stove with oven. The AC is oversized and provides excellent climate control. The list of other amenities can be found on the amenities page on this website.

The Wrexford Cottage is definitely a hidden gem in Bermuda!
I feel like we got the best deal on the island. This private cottage is just big enough for a couple with access to a large ocean front lawn. We spent a great deal of our honeymoon grilling on the lawn, snorkeling and kayaking right off the property. The kayaks the Richardsons provided was wonderful and very inexpensive too! We could kayak at our own leasure day or night and there were plenty of parrot fish and even sea turtles right off the property. Ralph provided a map and plenty of suggestions for travel during our stay on the first night and even provided bus tickets for us to get weekly passes at the Navy Yard. The property is a short 10 minute walk to a nice grocery store and a bus stop that will take you anywhere you need to get to on the island. The property is gorgeous, comfortable and the hosts were really a great resource for information and general Bermuda history and knowledge.
We are absolutely delighted that you and Chris enjoyed your Bermuda say and your stay here at Wrexford. You were great with the bus and ferry schedules and made your way effortlessly around the island. We really enjoy when our guests enjoy the property with the Kayaking and snorkeling on the reefs just off the lawn.
We want the congratulate the two of you and wish you both well with all the new things happening in your lives.
Take care until next time.
Property is beautiful, great views of the water
Ralph and Julie were excellent hosts. The property is beautiful and the sunsets are amazing. We loved having breakfast on the terrace and watching the sunsets. The island is beautiful and we can’t wait to return.
My husband and I stayed here for our 25th anniversary trip. The photos do not even begin to capture the beauty of this property. You can swim right off the property or just watch the parrotfish swim by. Eating outside while watching the sunset rivaled any top notch restaurant. Ralph and Julie attended to every need and were amazing hosts. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend this property.
Thank you ever so much for your very kind review. You were also excellent guests and we appreciate that you chose us. Initially we considered opening our apartment a risk. But in the past few years we have become extremely pleased with the decision. We are thrilled that you took advantage of the ocean and that you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we will see you again some time.
Thanks again from Julie and I.
If you love sunsets this is the place!!
All around an amazing place. If you’re looking for something quiet & simple- look no further! Swimming right out back with awesome snorkeling!! We cooked dinner every night, ate outside and soaked in the beautiful view and watched the amazing sunsets! A small market & the bus stop are nearby in walking distance.. Ralph & Julie are wonderful hosts! We just got home and are already taking about our next visit..
view of the ocean
Our stay was very nice and the view of the ocean was gorgeous. We were able to travel around the island at our leisure. Would recommend getting bus/ferry pass and cooking meals.
Beautiful, private spot directly on the ocean
We loved our time at Wrexford! We enjoyed everything the property had to offer. The water was wonderful and we swam every day. The adirondack chairs on both levels of the yard were perfect! We rented a scooter and ventured out during the day. We were sure to be back in the afternoon to enjoy a quiet dinner cooked on the Weber grill and the beautiful sunsets. The studio apartment was just right for 2. Thank you Ralph and Julie. We will be back!
Thanks ever so much for your review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourselves at Wrexford. It makes us most happy when our guests have a great time.
We do not take our ocean front location for granted as we just came up from a sunset swim ourselves this evening. It is our pleasure to share our home with visitors to Bermuda.
We look forward to you next stay.
