In 2013, she did the Manhattan Island Marathon swim as a relay, which was the gateway drug for a new addiction to marathon swimming.

Scattered over 21 acres and sloping down toward two private beaches are 11 colorful cottages in traditional Bermudian architecture overlooking the clear turquoise waters dotted with small islands. Swim in the shallow waters off our private pink sand beach, in the fresh water pool, or languish in the outdoor jacuzzi situated among a lush garden above the beach. Sail, snorkel, paddle board, dive ancient wrecks or explore the delicate coral reefs. Grab an early morning fishing charter, take a cruise on a sunny afternoon or a glorious sunset sail right from our dock.
