Greenbank Guesthouse and Cottages Bermuda Category: $ Location: Paget Parish
Run by the Ashton Family for over 50 years, Greenbank is a colonial property located at the waters edge in Paget parish and right on the Salt Kettle Peninsula. It has seven cottages, four rooms, wonderful gardens and spacious lawns. They overlook the water and scenic islands of the Great Sound. The main house is about two hundred years old. The old cedar beams in the house were mostly used as ballast in the old sailing ships.
A reason that Greenbank claims that it's a historic property is one of the cottages here used to be the office of an overseer at a time when salt trading was a major business in the island. The name of the area (Salt Kettle) was given because of the salt trading business.

My overall opinion
While this not a beachfront property, neither has a pool, it is a quality budget property with many other advantages. One of the biggest advantages is its proximity to the Salt Kettle Ferry dock (minutes stroll) which lets you reach Hamilton very easily and quickly (10 minutes ride).
The south shore beaches are within 10 minutes taxi ride. The property is in a quiet place and main building is a historic colonial house. Overall a great budget option.
