Experience of a Lifetime at Gemstones

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriends and I (a 60th birthday celebration) spent most of last week in Bermuda at Gemstones. What an amazing property! The most amazing part of the experience was our hostess Lorna. She made my girlfriends and I feel like we were family. We are trying to plan our next trip back to Gemstones. That being said, the view from the house was amazing! You won't go wrong with this VRBO selection! Thanks again Lorna, Greg, Sylvia, Robert and Norris. We are forever grateful for your kindness and hospitality.

I'm embarrassed it has taken me a couple of months to write this review. My mother, and my 3 sisters stayed here for 3 nights and made friends for life. The house is perfect and Lorna and Greg are the most wonderful landlords, friends, hosts you could ever wish for. We have booked the house for a week next Summer already. That says it all. When you have found perfection your search has ended. Can't wait to see you, Love the Baltimore, NY, Florida gals!!

Owner's Response: Oh yes. The party is on! You'll be here for Cup Match too. I love creative, artist and wine connoisseurs people, mixed with their love of nature especially the BEACH. That's my sort of people. Believe it or not, we get them just about every week. COME ON OVER...It's YOUR turn.

Second stay just as enjoyable as first

  • 5 out of 5
Our second stay in the house did not lead to any loss of the magic that drew us back. Great host, superb location not just in terms of views but also proximity to bus route, pub and restaurants. Plus a very comfortable property all-round.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to be hear upon your arrival and stay. Miss you both already. I am blessed to have such wonderful people to care for our home like it was theirs. This doesn't happen always. And to book again before you leave is just great. No review speaks volume like that. Totally blown away. Still so much to experience in your island HOME. Next year it will be even better. Working on the Deck 88 where you love your evening BBQ. Watch those eggplants David. And the path to the beach. That's a Greg project when he get's back. You missed him this trip. See you next year...

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.

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)
