Best rental ever in Bermuda

  • 5 out of 5
I've been renting for six years from Home Away and VRBO and this was, by far, the best rental ever. This house has it all, from the sub zero fridge and flat screen tv's and comfy beds to one of the best views in Bermuda. Our hosts were very nice people and very accommodating. This one is definitely on our must come back to list!

Lovely place, friendly people

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely place for a vacation.... Views are incredible, property is clean and very spacious. We had 8 people in our party. I loved the location with the private beach - this side of the island has the most beautiful beaches. Also, it is conviently located between the DockYards (good shopping) and Hamilton (the hub of the island).. Also, within walking distance is a very good restaurant (Henry VIII) and another fantastic resort - the Reefs. Had a nice dinner there on our last night. I highly recommend a Bermuda vacation and staying at this lovely home. I would definitely like to return...

Owner's Response: Great food is never a shortage in Bermuda. You can get just about everything. Make your reservations early to avoid disappointment. Coconuts @ the Reefs is a wonderful dining experience but space can be limited for larger groups and especially current times of year. You can get up from your table and stroll the pink sand beach after your meal. If you have mobility challenges choose from another of their fine restaurants. IN BERMUDA THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY.

Beach Girls' Retirement Celebration

Beach Girls' Retirement Celebration
  • 5 out of 5
Bermudiful! Our group of 5 friends celebrated my retirement at Baby Gem. This was my 5th trip to Bermuda and some of the ladies' first. The view from the house is breathtaking! We enjoyed coffee on the patio every morning and Happy Hour in the evenings while looking at the gorgeous water all around. Swimming at our very own private beach was very enjoyable....the water feels very safe and chairs are available. The walk up and down the hill helped our appetites and became easier each time we did it. We grilled out many evenings but did enjoy a few meals out and can recommend Wahoo in St George's and Lobster Pot in Hamilton. Do walk the 15 minutes to St. Anne's church....they are so very friendly and the service and singing were very enjoyable. We made a friend there that we caught up with at Harbour Nights on Wednesday night and Henry VIII on Friday night. Sylvia provided transportation to and from the airport and rescued our friends who were waiting too long for the bus one evening. We bought weekly bus and boat passes and the bus stop is at the house. It is fun to also take a ferry ride and you can do that from Hamilton and a number of other places. Lorna gave us a special tour and shopping trip to the Southampton Princess. Greg and Lorna offered a day on the boat....take them up on it...the swimming was excellent at 9 Beaches and we stopped for lunch at a local spot with delicious food. Lorna joined us for Happy Hour a couple of evenings and brought Swizzles with her. She and Greg were both so very helpful and friendly. Baby Gem was very comfortable for 5 ladies. We look forward to returning with our husbands and renting Gemstones, the upstairs main house, which is amazing.

Owner's Response: Looks like your review came on Gemstones unit instead of Baby Gem. It's all good since you do enjoy the same view. However not to mislead anyone...Gemstones has the space. Looking forward to you enjoying our home in the near future. Early birds catch the worm. Book now if interested for next year. Inquires are keep me away from my "swizzle time". The best part about vacationing at Gemstones, you always leave fitter than you arrive. You would surely say, "thanks for the rope on the steps". Don't do it in the dark without a flashlight. Some don't care.

Babygem is the real deal

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Lorna,

What can we say--we totally enjoyed our week in Bermuda at Babygem! The location is perfect and Gibbs lighthouse-magical (at night). Our lovely accommodations suited us to a "T". We planed on cooking more but with Henry's VIII around the corner, why bother? The beautiful private beach was the icing on the cake and it was hard to tear ourselves away for sightseeing. Of course we couldn't see and do everything and plan on returning to Babygem someday soon. With your wonderful hospitality and location, you have a great thing going. Thanks for keeping it real! Cynthia, Rosemarie, Paulette & Natalie (NS,NS,ONT,QC- Canada) June 2014

Owner's Response: Next time you will be in the big house. I am glad you had the opportunity to do a walk through. Don't stay away too long, my sisters from another mother. You would love the granite counter tops in Baby Gem now.

The View You Dreamed Of

  • 5 out of 5
When you've dreamed for 46 years of returning to the island of your honeymoon, you don't want to be disappointed. Add to this your wish that your close friends, travelling with you on their first trip to Bermuda, will also not be disappointed. As our taxi drew closer to our destination, we knew Gemstones would not disappoint! Four friends collectively caught their breath as we looked out at the stunning vista that would be ours for a week. We were met by Greg, who cheerfully gave us a tour of the bright, clean, well appointed home. There was a bedroom on the main level, but we chose the two larger bedrooms. These were located off the kitchen; four steps down to a landing was the entrance to the lovely master suite, and about three more steps down was the queen bedroom and full bath. The showers had good water pressure and there was no wait for hot water. The towels were large and absorbent and the sheets very comfortable. The AC units in the bedrooms worked very well, as did the overhead fans, giving us a comfortable choice each night. In the main living area, we kept the doors and windows open wide to enjoy the wonderful view and cooling breeze. The AC unit that would cool the living, dining & kitchen areas was waiting for repairs, but we found that with the overhead fans & the breeze from the ocean, we did not need it the entire week. We loved the balcony off the dining area which was perfect for having breakfast, lunch, drinks, reading, and best of all to just enjoy the gorgeous view. The path down to the private beach was a bit of a trek for us "over 65 & out of shape" folks, but it was absolutely worth it. We thought we couldn't walk up the hill to South Rd. but we did! Owner Lorna was a joy to work with. She was so welcoming, kind & helpful from our initial communication to the day we hugged and said goodbye. A big shout out to Sylvia, our taxi driver and tour guide, for all her help. If she was busy when we called, she always sent another friendly, helpful driver. Restaurants we recommend are the nearby Fairmont Southampton's outstanding Ocean Club (best view), Jasmine Room for Jazz & cocktails, & Wickets Burger Bar; The Hog Penny (delicious & most for your money), Bouchee, & Pickled Onion in Hamilton; The Waterlot Inn for elegant dining; The Dining Room at Gibbs Hill Lighthouse; Sweet P's for tea in St. George; & Coconuts at The Reef if you can handle all the steps. We highly recommend Gemstones - you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Wow. This review has highlights some very important things like comfort and clean to me. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Gemstones is a truly special place that we have plans to improve on her everyday. By the way the a/c is up and running. Highlighting some of our special island spots was great. This review you have taken my breath away. We hope to see you soon. Come and enjoy a Bermudaful time. You will want to stay and definitely come back. God bless.

Awesome Place and Awesome owners!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful place to Stay! The owners Gregg and Lorna go out of their way to make your stay here perfect! We had Gregg cook us a gourmet meal that was absolutely delicious! They were both informative and we experienced Bermuda as the residents who live on the Island experience this beautiful place. The house was spotless, with spectacular views and it's own private beach. The one thing that I would changed in the Vacation was to stay longer!!! I will return because it's a piece of Heaven I want to experience again!! Definitely for Transportation Sylvia is the BEST!!!

Located within a 2 minute walk you will be at Gibb's Hill Lighthouse. The perfect place to see the entire islands of Bermuda. The view is amazing. Perched in the middle of two of the best resort properties in Bermuda (Fairmont Southampton and The Reef's Resort) is GEMSTONES. Another attraction is your own private chef at your request. Chef Greg is not only the owner but will be honored to prepare a meal especially for you in the privacy of your home away from home here at Gemstones. Also I invite you to view our lower unit for small groups listing 450166. Or bring another family along. (smile)
