My family had a wonderful stay at Gemstones. The Wilson's were gracious hosts and went above and beyond to help make our stay relaxing, fun, and comfortable. They not only welcomed us into there home, but into their family. We can't wait till we come back next year! Thank you so much Lorna and Greg!

Beautiful property with panoramic views

  • 4 of 5

The beauty of the ocean and the nearby private beach as seen from the property are outstanding. Panoramic views are readily available from all the windows and balconies. The house was well equipped, and particularly the kitchen. We had Chef Greg prepare a special meal for us at the house and he is truly an experienced professional.

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This was an annual family trip for us. We like to go to different places every year, but my children kept talking about coming back here next year. The accommodations were lovely, homey and comfortable. The views were magnificent. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean was a very peaceful and calming experience. I actually felt the stress leaving my body the very first night.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

All I have to say is, simply AMAZING. First time using VRBO and it was simply an amazing experience. Lorna is a great host and made us feel like it was our own home. We will definitely return back to this beautiful home with spectacular views, private beach so lovely. We had a wonderful time. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and the house was quiet and beautifully decorated. Lorna was a great host and very sweet. She gave us a great advise about sightseeing. The house is 5 minutes away from all of the restaurants, hotels, moped rentals and any amenities you could want. Pictures don't do this place justice to this amazing GEM of a place. Thank you so much Lorna BTW, You will also get a ride from Sweet Sylvia from the airport. How cool is that...lol

Owner's Response: It seems like I blinked and we were saying goodbye. We didn't get a chance to enjoy a glass of wine. Now that is just not right. We loved the chocolates. That was so nice. Not to mention the condition you left our home. Spotless. Come back soooooon!

Gemstones

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Gemstones. It was perfect for our family (three couples and one 3 year old). The house was lovely, comfortable, and well appointed, the location was very conveneint to restaurants and beaches, and the almost private Cross Bay Beach was our own slice of paradise. Lorna (and her extended family) could not have been better hosts. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Guest like your family are so awesome. It is because of guest like you we have stayed in the vacation rental business so long. When large families travel together especially with child or children it can become challenging. The house was just as clean and in order as you received it. AWESOME! Thank you. Thank you for encouraging us. TOP AWARD GUEST! I am still amazed. THANK YOU.

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)
