what a beautiful place. all the amenities you need. the private beach was perfect. the view was breathtaking. I cant say enough about the hosts. Lorna and Greg, you guys are awesome. Can't say enough about the private, in home dinner, cooked and served by chef Greg. I felt like a queen. hope to get back soon to GEMSTONES. I felt like I was family the minute I walked in the front door. And don't forget to call on Sylvia for all your transportation needs. she was delightful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It's always a great day when you don't have to cook on a vacation and then to not have to leave home and be served one of the best meals you will enjoy is even better. Cheers till next time.

OMG - WHAT A PLACE!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 03-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
We just spent 11 glorious days and nights at this wonderful "gem". We had our two kids, a sister and brother-in-law, and when we needed space, it wasn't hard to get. The house itself is beautiful as are the gardens, the beach below. We shopped daily at the market, and cooked and bbq'd, etc. Lorna and Greg - wonderful hosts - and Sylvia - you need to get a ride from her ... a most delightful lady.

We will go again and stay in this little piece of heaven. Be prepared to walk - there are many wonderful trails and the likes right around here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your quick review. This allows us to address issues if any immediately. I hope your sunburn is under control now. However sometimes the snow burn can be worst than our rays. Not to worry if you forget your sunscreen we have the best natural healing aloe plants right outside your door. Many of our guest has resorted to this method, but the smell. Then there is always WINE. You are warned....bring that sunscreen. We are totally exposed over here, living the beach life. Most of our guest reserve at least one evening of private dining. Thank you for your lovely card expressing "best meal on the island - hands down". That was so nice of you. Chef Greg really is one of the best chefs in the world. And not just because he is my husband. :-) It was a pleasure being of service to you. Sylvia is the best mother-in-law too and not just because she is an award winning ambassador for these islands of Bermuda in the transportation business. I just love working with the best, and this is what you have found with us....you are the best and we welcome you back anytime - as long as space is available.

Perfection

Myself and four girlfriends rented Gemstones for a girls getaway. It was just as described and more. The pictures don't do the location justice, just absolutely gorgeous. We highly recommend to anyone looking for perfection. Greg and Lorna were great. We hope to rent Gemstones again.

Owner's Response: It was absolutely refreshing to start our 2014 season off with such a wonderful group of ladies. You know it has to be another time since I was struggling with the flu. Greg enjoyed having you ladies all to himself. :-) Thank you for taking such good care of our home. Gemstones awaits you.

Beautiful house on the beach with gorgeous views

  • Review Submitted: 03-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2013
We rented this with another family that we vacation with. They had never been to Bermuda so everything was exciting to them. Everything about the house was great. We had 4 adults and 3 teenagers and the layout, beds and bathrooms worked out just fine. Gemstone is well furnished in all rooms including the kitchen which we used several times. There is a restaurant and a small store just a couple of blocks away by the bustop. Location is good, about midway between Hamilton and the Dockyards. Weather was on the wet side while we were there but we managed a few days at the beach. Works well for families with 4 to 8 members or 2 families. Would recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: Michael we are so happy you enjoyed your Gemstones home. It was unfortunate we didn't get a chance to meet since we were also enjoying our family in Jamaica. It's wonderful to know our system of serving our guest which we have put in place works. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to meet on another occasion. Happy New Year and all the best to your family and friends.

Beautiful Home with serene surroundings

This property is just as described and includes everything you need for a great beach vacation. Be sure to pick up groceries to take advantage of the full kitchen. Beach is only a few steps down the hill and the Fairmont is nearby with a great brunch. The only negative is that the house is fairly far from tourist spots but the bus is easy to catch and reliable.

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)
