Why Lorna Wilson chose Southampton
Gemstones is a property that has all the qualities for large, medium and small families to enjoy. It is tucked away in an area of Bermuda called the Gold Coast overlooking the prettiest Private Beach called Crossbay Beach. Imagine someone placed you in the middle of the best resort area and said "have fun". The best restaurants, the kindest neighborhood, your own private beach with nature at it's best. You are right in the middle of three of the finest resorts Bermuda has to offer. All you have to do is bring your own groceries. You awake to the ocean and the sound of chirping birds everyday. You look out to sea and is amazed that God has created so many shades of blue. In the warmer summer months Longtail birds fill the skies. In the later evenings as the sunsets you watch the large cruise ships sailing on the oceans. Stay a little longer and you will be hypnotized by the beacon of Gibb's Hill Lighthouse.

We really enjoyed our stay at Baby Gem. The view from the shaded patio was so beautiful that we had a hard time prying ourselves off. Beach is very close and lovely.
Great view, unswimmable beach
Baby Gem is worth the price and comes with a spectacular view. Lorna and Greg are very nice hosts. No complaints with the house itself other than the kitchen cabinets need to be replaced as there is a clear musty smell inside them that transfers to the glasses and flatware. The beach and water would have been spectacular but unfortunately it was unswimmable the entire week we were there (first week of June) due to the seaweed and Portuguese Man-O-War. The seaweed got worse as the week went on until the first 30 feet or so of beach from the surf was solid seaweed. There were also dozens of man-o-war all over the beach and in the water. A number of locals told me this was all very unusual, but there are permanent signs on the beach warning of the man-o-war. I realize this is all out of the control of Lorna and Greg. Bermuda is in the Sargasso Sea, which is known for this type of brown seaweed. The beach is also covered with broken plastic - another characteristic of the Sargasso Sea due to the circular currents of the sea. Very disappointing to see that crystal clear blue water and not be able to go in it.
Thank you for highlighting some minor yet serious situations which can occur from time to time. As for the kitchen may need to upgrade there but it comes at a cost. Working on it. This review was very thoughtful and would help push us into excellence. Thank you.
The Baby Gem was way much more than what we expected! The private beach is unbelievable. We had the entire beach to ourselves the entire weekend!
Three days is like a blink of an eye in Bermuda but over a special event weekend like the Triathlon it can be fantastic. So glad you had the opportunity to enjoy a truly private beach. It was delicious swimming in Crossbay today. Thanks for your review and so quickly. Thanks.
Well appointed property with a great view and private beach access!
Lorna and Greg are great hosts. The property Baby Gem was perfect for three of us with two bedrooms, 1 bath. The view from the porch was breathtaking and peaceful. Private Beach access was perfect and we took taxis or buses to explore the island. Bermudians are warm and friendly. Loved our vacation!
Safe travels home.

Perfect for a family reunion and wedding
Would be useful to get a Twizy charger
Working on it. But no way would we be able to support 7 cars. Unbeleivable.
An amazing destination!
We had a fabulous trip to Bermuda, thanks to this lovely property. Having never been to Bermuda, we were not sure where to stay. It turns out this house was the ideal location! The private beach and idyllic views were like none other. We ventured to other beaches to see the island, but we most enjoyed the quiet perfection of this beach. There are plenty of beaches and restaurants within walking distance. As others have mentioned, Lorna is a such a wonderful hostess. In fact all of the people we encountered on Bermuda were amazingly friendly and warm. We hope to return soon!
We are so happy to be apart of a lovely vacation especially since this was your first time to Bermuda. We look forward to your return and watching your children grow up on our island home.
