Ralph and Julie Richardson purchased this studio in 1987

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.

What makes this studio unique

Price is reasonable in Bermuda at $160 per night ($115 winter rate Jan1-Mar31) with the best views possible - Activities from Property: Kayaking,Snorkeling, Bone fishing (when in season), and a 45 acre public park (with hiking trails trails next door). Julie and Ralph are both qualified Bermuda Tour guides and can answer all of your questions about the island, when you can catch them at home:):).

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hello Kim, 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.

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.

view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

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.

If you love sunsets this is the place!!

  • 5 of 5

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..

Beautiful, private spot directly on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hello Debbie, 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. Cheers Ralph and Julie

A beautiful property with amazing views of the reefs, ocean and sunsets.

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful place for one or two to spend a relaxing vacation away from the typical tourist bustle. Great swimming and kayaking right from the steps leading to the sandy bottomed shoreline. Turtles, Longtails and Parrotfish were daily, or hourly, visitors as well as rays and a bonefish or two.
