    Beautiful Home in the Best Location

    We were a large, extended family (three generations), celebrating an 80th birthday. Kim, the owner, could not have been more attentive or accommodating. The place is brand new, thoughtfully appointed, and had everything we needed. We spent a lot of time out on the deck and in the hot tub soaking up the incredible views of Horseshoe Bay. It was easy to jump on the shuttle to get to and from the beach and we enjoyed the close proximity to the Fairmont restaurants and facilities (the golf club restaurant is great!). However, we ate most of our meals in the home which was easy to do given the kitchen had all that was needed and the grill was fired up most nights. We look forward to returning!!

    The house was lovely with amazing views.

    We had a wonderful vacation in Bermuda. The owner, Kimberly Burns, was wonderful to work with while booking our vacation. She answered every email and was very helpful with providing sights and information to make our stay in Bermuda fun.

    The house was lovely and spacious. The bedrooms were colorful, and very inviting. After fun days at the beach we absolutely loved relaxing on the amazing deck. The view of Horseshoe Bay along with the sunrises and sunsets were breathtaking to

    behold from the deck. It was just a short walk to the Fairmount to catch the shuttle bus to the beach to have some fun in the sun.

    Beautiful home!

    This home is absolutely spectacular! This homeowner made sure every detail of this property was perfect. The views of Horseshoe Bay unmatched. Appreciated the convenience of being on The Fairmont property to take advantage of all the restaurants, shuttles and taxis. My family had one of our best and most memorable vacations ever. Thanks Kim and family for making our vacation the best!

    Fantastic Cottage!

    We had 5 delightful days in this beautifully modernized cottage: glorious views of Horseshoe Bay from every room, the large terrace looks out to the ocean, and every comfort has been anticipated. The kitchen is fully equipped, the bedrooms each have direct access to the terrace, and the tram to the beach runs constantly. It could not have been more perfect for our three-generation family vacation. Our hosts were delightful and most welcoming. Thank you, Kim and Michael, we hope to return soon.

    Paradise Found

    Property is everything its advertised as and more. Beautifully appointed, well stocked kitchen and lots of room. Everything we needed for our week in paradise including beach towels, sun chairs, etc. Owners Kim and Mike are the nicest, most helpful hosts you'll ever come across. Would highly recommend this property.

    Arguably the best location in Bermuda!

    Perched above the middle of Horseshoe Bay and it’s pink sands, Kim has created a home that is welcoming and very comfortable with amazing views of Bermuda’s turquoise waters. The beach is waliking distance along with access to the Fairmont property. The food scene is terrific with great restaurants within five minutes. Want to dine in, shop at Lindos and cook in the chefs kitchen. If you chose to stay with Kim, seriously consider renting an electric Twizzy from Current Vehicles. Their office is two hundred yards away ion the Fairmont property. Kim has multiple charging stations on the property. The electric vehicles give you total access to the entire island on your schedule. A real bonus. You must reserve Twizzys thirty days prior to arrival. They book up quickly. This is a superior property, in an amazing location. Enjoy!!!

    Spectacular Views and Exceptional Customer Service

    Six of us stayed at the Southern Views property on the grounds of the Southampton Fairmont and could not have been more satisfied. The view from the property was breathtaking, the cleanliness, size and amenities provided exceeded expectations. Communication and information (with recommendations on restaurants, shopping etc...) from the owner prior to arrival allowed us to be well-prepared. She met us upon arrival to ensure we were all set.

    A short walk down the hill to a picturesque beach, including walking paths to hidden coves, and a short wall up the hill to the hotel and Gibbs Hill lighthouse.

    Highly recommended and will look to stay there again.

    Beautiful Property in a fantastic location

    This was our 2nd visit to Southern Views and we love it so much that we will visit again.

    Kim and her family are very welcoming, the views are incredible and the hotel facilities are very convenient.

    The hotel bus back from the beautiful beaches and being able to get a taxi from the lobby are two great pluses to have access to in Bermuda.

    The house is well equipped, has big bedrooms a lovely pool and a barbecue.

    You won’t be disappointed.

    Location and Quality

    Perfect for six people. Location just above Horseshoe is gorgeous. Well equipped. Very comfortable and convenient for children as next to Fairmont Hotel and can use their shuttle to beach.

    Fabulous home and views for perfect Family vacation

    Having lived in Bermuda years ago and returned for vacations a number of times, we can say without hesitation that Southern Views is the best location on the island for a family vacation. Our family of 6 adults and grandchildren (11 months - 10 years) celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary loved the stunning views from the breezy, wraparound porch - the site of all our meals - with plenty of space and furniture to spread out and lounge. The bedrooms/bathrooms are all large, well stocked with everything you need. The kitchen is huge, modern appliances and lots of dishes, glasses, basic spices etc. The weather was so perfect that we didn't even use the beautiful dining room and living room. Taking the shuttle from the hotel to Horseshoe Beach was easy.... the drivers even dropped us off at the house a couple of times when the shuttle wasn't too busy (be sure to tip for this extra service!). Taxis are a short walk to the hotel lobby and always plentiful. We enjoyed the pool while the kids napped or for late day swims. With young grandkids, we were pleasantly surprised to have a full crib and pack-n-play, high chair, gates on stairs, beach toys made a for a really relaxing week! Having optional hotel amenities a short walk away (spa/drinks etc.) was a nice benefit. Over the years, we've often looked at the yellow house perched on the cliff above Horseshoe Bay and thought it would be an unbelievable house to live in so when we saw the listing we jumped on the chance to stay there for a visit. It exceeded our expectations and we are already planning a return trip for another family vacation! Kim and Michael couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating, from the initial contact through the follow-up email. Looking forward to a return trip soon.

    Amazing View of Horseshoe Beach

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 50th anniversary at Southern Views with our extended family of children, children-in-law, and grandchildren. The house is gorgeous, our hosts were most accommodating, and our celebration was a memorable success. Kudos to Kim and Mike.

    Stunning spot for family trip

    Our family of 9 (grandparents, parents, and children) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Southern Views. The house is lovely and comfortable. The views are amazing. Everyone enjoyed the pool, the beach, and the easy access to some of the amenities at the Fairmont. You can walk beyond the busy beach at Horseshoe Bay and discover peaceful panoramic coves. You can access boat trips from the Water Lot. You can have spa experiences at the Fairmont - or play golf. Kim and Michael Burns are the most helpful hosts. They were very solicitous of our comfort. Thank you for a wonderful family experience.

    Amazing Labor Day Weekend in Bermuda

    This place is hands down amazing!! I wanted to find a house to celebrate my wife's birthday with some of our friends and came upon this listing, I couldn't have been happier with how this turned out. We got there early and Kim and her husband could not have been nicer, welcoming us in while they got the house ready. I think I mentioned once that it was my wife's birthday and when we came back from lunch there were birthday balloons, streamers and banners and a small gift for my wife - the bests hosts I have ever seen. As for the place, it is amazing, the pool set up is fantastic and we spent every late afternoon into the evening just making drinks and laying by the pool before we did dinner. The views are unbelievable and the beach is just a quick walk down the hill or you can take the golf carts at the hotel which is just up the street. The beach is one of the best, if not the best, on the island and it was easy to get back and forth. We had lots of plans of going out at night but ended up enjoying the house so much that we stayed most of the nights just cooking in and enjoying the pool and the porch/amazing views. The house is big, pretty sure there were a few common rooms we didn't even end up using! The four bedrooms are huge and give great privacy with each having it's own unique features. And enough can't be said about the wrap around porch. Simply amazing. Our friends and I have already discussed making this an annual trip.

    Breathtaking, luxurious, fun and a true gem on this incredible island

    We rented both villas for a 6 day family vacation for a combination of 11 adults and 4 kids. Everything about this place was incredible. The views are truly stunning overlooking the iconic horseshoe bay beach and coves along the shore. The hosts, Kim and Michael are fantastic. They were very friendly and always available for any questions we had. Facilities were immaculate and very well maintained. Getting to the beach was super easy, a quick walk or shuttle ride down. We had an amazing time enjoying cocktails and hot tubs on the lower deck and hosting big family dinners on the upper covered deck both which overlook the ocean. We will be back!!!

    Great house, beautiful views!

    Loved this one, house is great, well appointed, comfortable, will definitely be back!

    The property will meet all your expectations !

    Southerly Views is a lovely home to spend time and relax with the family. Plenty of room to have a large group and spread out and have enough space. Hearing the surf when outside on the porch was the best. We would highly recommend Southerly Views for your vacation.
