Greenbank Guesthouse & Cottages Review

Greenbank has been family-run for 58 years, and this is what Bermuda vacations were like back then: by way of entertainment you had a due-west pier with chairs to watch the sunset. A stay at Greenbank is a slow, relaxed experience. There's no beach here. Instead, you sit out on the harborfront lawn and take in the sun, or use the private dock for deepwater swimming. Or catch the ferry, just steps across the road, to explore the island. The waterside cottages, especially Salt Winds and Sea Fan, have lovely harbor views. No two are alike—some were converted from old horse-and-buggy stations once used in transporting salt. All are clean and updated, with kitchens, private entrances, and shaded verandas.

    Bermuda in March

    We decided to take advantage of a great last minute flight deal and vacation in Bermuda in March 2012. We weren't expecting hot weather, but were very pleasantly surprised with the great week of warm sunny skies - perfect for our little golf getaway. We stayed at Greenbanks - what a pleasure! Our little 1 bedroom cottage had a tiny but comfortable kitchen with everything we needed to feel at home away from home. The room was spotless, the service wonderful, and the use of the kitchen was great to make small meals to supplement restaurant meals. The Guesthouse is a hop 'n a skip from the Salt Kettle ferry station, enabling easy-peasy access to the town of Hamilton across the harbor. Sometimes we just hopped on the ferry to enjoy the ride and watch the sunset - gorgeous, and the ferry staff were so friendly. The Greenbanks is visited regularly by repeat guests,most elderly, but some mid-aged, and they made us feel right at home in the common room at the main house, while we caught up with news & chatted. The hosts at Greenbanks, Cindy & David, were delightful: welcoming, helpful, friendly, and being long-time residents, full of great recommendations. We were often told that Bermuda is too expensive to consider for a vacation, but this brief holiday was affordable and a joy. My only grief: the golfing is very expensive; but what the heck, we're on vacation, right?
