Hill-Top Paradise!

  • Review Submitted: 07-Apr-2014

Honestly, words cannot begin to describe the paradise Baby Gem truly is! Hosts Lorna & Greg Wilson have certainly outdone themselves with this exceptional property & home. In mid-March I had the good fortune of spending 12 days at Baby Gem with our two Daughters age 9 & 12. My parents had booked the property for several weeks, and we quickly jumped at the invitation to join them. This location is everything the description says, and more! The kids were in the water almost all day (we're Canadian). The beach is spacious, pristine, secluded, and loads of fun. On calm days we went snorkeling and swam with schools of beautiful fish just a few feet from shore. The bus stop at the top of the driveway gets you to everywhere you could want to go - groceries, restaurants, the zoo, shopping... you name it! Even when we had nowhere to go the kids wanted to ride the bus - so we did. I believe that Bermudians are the most friendly & helpful people I have ever met! Henry's is a great restaurant a couple hundred feet from the end of the driveway - by far the best sushi any of us have ever had! The kids won't eat sushi at home anymore - they are forever spoiled!! Horseshoe Bay beach is a nice little walk up the street, as is the Southampton Princess Hotel (literally 10 min. max.) Your hosts will follow your lead – if you want total privacy, that’s what you’ll have. If you’d like some company for a glass of wine before dinner, Lorna & Greg are happy to oblige with great conversation and stories of Bermuda. By the end of our trip the Wilsons were family! We knew we were considered family too... when you are invited into the Wilson home to share dinner with their extended family not only are you fed incredibly well, but you leave feeling extremely honored! If you are looking for gorgeous views of turquoise waters and stunning beaches, with all the amenities nearby you could possibly need, look no further. We can't wait to go back!
Baby Gem is a little slice of paradise, where you feel right at home.

Owner's Response: When we can finally get around to updating our description I am going to steal this response. It is perfect! This is exactly what you get. There are no words that can express it better than this. Kids love it, adults are at peace and even the "little" dogs that have been privileged are happen and leaves Shadow (the cat that adopted us) alone. We are already looking forward to your return next year. Make sure we do the glass beach next year. You would think 12 days would be enough but you didn't get on the boat. You did have some beautiful days for March, considering the weather world wide as gone MAD.

The house is perfectly located close to a private beach where you can relax! It has great views and is easy to get to Hamilton from here as well. The hosts were wonderful from start to finish and I'd definitely recommend the place!

Owner's Response: Hey Guys! Three days is never enough but thank you for choosing Bermuda and Baby Gem. I am sure you had the opportunity to cover a lot of ground with those mopeds. I am so glad you made it safely home. Thanks for the keys. Book anytime, it was great having you especially since this was your first time to our shores.

My sister and I stayed at Baby Gem. The apartment was lovely, the view was incredible, the hosts were amazing. We found the apartment clean and well appointed. Lorna's mother-in-law picked us up at the airport and made a stop a local grocery store for a reasonable price. She also gave us a running commentary of the island which was very nice. We spent a fair amount of time on the amazing beach. It was often just the two of us, never more than 7 people in total. If we found that we needed something that wasn't provided, Lorna and Greg were happy to provide it. Lorna spent an afternoon driving us around to a few out of the way places, it is obvious that she loves what she does and makes her a pleasure to be around. We did a fair amount of walking, sometimes right from the apartment, sometimes we would jump on a bus walk when we got there. The bus stops are directly across from the driveway, making it very easy to get around. It is a steep walk down to the beach, whether by path, stairs or road. We did not mind, but it would be difficult for very young children or the infirm. I would not hesitate to recommend either Baby Gem or Gemstones, and my sister and I are already dreaming of returning with our families.

Owner's Response: I have lived nearly all my life in Bermuda and I am still amazed. Carrie you and Suzy will always be known to me as the sea glass sisters. This discovery of this special spot was great. Thank you. We sat out on this adventure to find an area of Bermuda which we never dreamed would be so nice. As the waves caressed the shores it was literally music to the ear. The most beautiful sounds and such peace. I will be looking for a red sea glass probably all my life because of you Suzy. Come back anytime!

Memorable 40th anniversary

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 28-Oct-2013

Our visit to Baby Gem, was just that; a real gem! The view is breathtaking. The private beach we had to ourselves most days was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun and sand. The owners made us feel right at home; even inviting us to a delicious dinner one evening as we looked out over the coastline of Bermuda. There were three great restaurants within walking distance. We did not even bother to rent a moped since Baby Gem was too inviting. Thank you both so very much for a wonderful 40th anniversary that we will never forget.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Not sure if you got your probably only picture of your 40th anniversary picture. Still getting use to this little Samsung camera of mine. It is so cool and I have gone crazy with it. Like they say in these parts....soon come! You are a beautiful couple that I will reflex on to get me to 40 years too. Those who play together stay together.

Happy divers!

We really enjoyed our stay at Baby Gem. Lorna recommended a great taxi service that picked us up at the airport and stopped at a very nice grocery store so we could stock up on supplies on our way to the property. The views are great from the porch and kitchen windows. The private beach was wonderful, with a large variety of fish, even an eel for snorkelers to enjoy. We were only a 15 minute walk from a great dive shop, Dive Bermuda, at the Fairmont Resort. Their staff is wonderful and they know all the best reefs and wrecks. They are very good at grouping you with other divers with similar skill levels, so we got to enjoy some dives as long as 65 minutes. It is a great dive operation for anyone looking to do theier certification dives. They will store your gear between multiple days of diving so you don't have to worry about carrying your gear back and forth. Getting around easier than we thought. The bus stop was only a couple minutes away. We used it for a couple afternoon trips into Hamilton? We also arronged a tour to the St. Georges side of the island with a certified tour guide that Lorna recommended. There is a great selection of restaurants. Henry VIII Pub has good food and makes very good rum swizzles, a local drink. Coco's at the Reef Resort has the best sunset dining and excellent food, and Royston's there has very good wood oven pizza. The Fairmont also has some geat restaurants. We also cooked in some nights where the gas grill and herb garden came in handy. The owner Greg is a chef and can booked for meals too! We are already looking forward to booking a return trip and we will be bringing friends!

Owner's Response: As I read this review I said wow! This is exactly what I should say in our welcome packet...so there I go, back to the revision desk. Colleen you gave me work. Thank you thank you thank you. You and your husband embraced so much of the gems Bermuda has to offer. As for the info on the eel, I would not be swimming out to the rock anytime soon. I am always told that we have some of the best snorkeling @ Crossbay beach but I think I will stay in the surf with the kids. Go right ahead and enjoy our deep blue sea. Please do not hesitate to contact us early when bringing a group. We will do our best to accommodate you in Gemstones.
