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.

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.

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

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!

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.

Excellent vacation rental in Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at Gemstones. It was everything we could have wanted and more. Five adults had plenty of space for work and sleep. Wonderfully stocked kitchen and the views are amazing. Beach is only steps away and is a great place to swim. Would recommend this accommodation to everyone!

Perfect setting. Beautiful house. Well equiped.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights and had a great time. The setting was lovely. Access to the private beach was a real plus. The only negatives were that the house actually comprises three separate units. we occupied the main house which was above the other units. The occupants of one of the units complained about the noise we were making. We were playing cards, laughing and playing background music, not partying hard. We did not go to Bermuda to read novels and go to bed early. That said, we would go back there. The place is great.

Owner's Response: Actually there is a total of 4 units on Gemstones with the owners occupying one of the lower units. Most of the time there is no conflicts with noise pollution but both units checked in at the same time for Rugby Week. Usually the main house always need extra rooms for family members and under circumstances like this is why we brought Baby Gem on as a further rental unit. Only conflict was the excitement of the first night. We didn't hear a thing. But thank you for being conscious of your neigboring guests the last couple of nights. Between the Squah tournments and the Rugby everyone stayed out late and had a great time. Rental of the entire property is an option if you wish to return with such a large group. By the way Richard your group were great house guest considering it was a diverse group of friends. Book early to avoid disappointment.
