About Lorna Wilson
My husband and I have managed and operated our vacation rental business for over 6 years and has recently redesigned our lifestyle to include in our rental pool our studio apartment. We have been married for over 30 years with two adult children and our newly added gem BELLA (our granddaughter). I was born in Jamaica, but my dear and most talented husband, who is also Gemstones Private Chef is Bermudian to the core. Mention Greg Wilson to anyone on these shores and they would more than like know him. Highly respected. I am your contact person when booking Gemstones and I will guide and direct you towards one of the most enjoyable vacation experiences. Welcome to Bermuda. Our island home.
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.
What makes this Studio unique
Private beach with three access, quiet, many restaurants to choose from. Gibb's Hill Lighthouse just a very short walk away. Bus stops at the top of the hill. Friendly neighborhood with neighborhood watch. Whale watching from your patio. Random fireworks display from neighboring hotels.

Beautiful, relaxing and inviting
This waterfront property was exactly what my husband and I needed for a week. Lorna was wonderful!! We enjoyed an evening outside on the patio with her listening to the musical styling of another renter and my husband. It is in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. We purchased bus passes which worked out perfectly with stops right in front of the property. The private beach was amazing and quiet, exactly what we needed. I would highly recommend staying here! We can't wait to come back!
Lindley and Scott it was wonderful having you stay with us over the new year. We could not have asked for better guests to enjoy our home. Jim and Scott on the guitar was totally an amazing treat. Bella was also very taken back with that moments even if the cheetos drove her insane. No one would ever believe the magic we enjoyed that night. BLESSED! A perfect evening.Thank you. The perfect guests.
Private beach, beautiful views
We loved our stay at the Deck House. It’s basically all the qualities of a hotel room plus a kitchenette. Not to mention a short walk to a private beach and beautiful panoramic ocean views. Also a short walk to a few restaurants and tourist sites. Lorna and her family were very welcoming and accommodated all of our needs, including picking up some groceries for breakfast because of our late arrival. We loved our stay and hope to be back some day.
Thank you for your kind review. Most of the times our guests in the Deck House comes to get away and are thrilled to find such a tucked away little spot. Then all of a sudden there are these little feet running up the tiny pathway...BELLA (our lovely grandchild). Thank you for showing such kindness to her. She loves to see what "new" faces we have today. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Welcome to the family. It was a pleasure.
The property was as advertised. It was beautiful, clean, comfortable. The location excellant, walking distance from several wonderful restaurants, beach beautiful and quiet. Lorna and Greg lovely people, very gracious hosts. One of the best holidays we have ever been on when we have craved rest and quiet.
Quaint and comfortable. Great location!
Lorna and Greg were great hosts. We loved the location and the private beach we could walk to. Loved the upper deck for breakfast. Look forward to coming back!
Looking forward to having you back Kathy. Hopefully we will see you next year.

Little Gem of a place
We booked this for a week holiday and it was lovely. A lovely view of the 2 bays and only few mins to one of them and its lovely beach - there are steps, but even with a dodgy knee, I could manage it. There are plenty of chairs, noodles etc for use on the beach which was a great feature.
Deck house is a studio- and was very clean. Although small, the kitchen was well equipped for the size of the place and had what we needed for a few days. The bed was new and comfortable, the bathroom functional and clean and plenty of storage space. The TV had lots of channels. For me, given the potential for showers in Bermuda so you couldn't always sit out, it missed indoor comfortable seating- but that is my nit picking and the layout of the studio was not really suited for this.
Lorna and Greg were great hosts, friendly and informative and overall I would not hesitate to recommend this place or to visit again.
Thank you for your review Anne. It amazes me how quickly our guests in the Deck House moves around. Glad you enjoyed your stay. The Studio by the Sea may be a better match. GEMSTONES can accommodate all sorts of family. The issue is to book early. Very early.😉
Gemstones and Deckhouse is simply amazing!
My wife and I just spent 7 days and 6 nights here. This is not our first time to Bermuda, nor will it be our last. What I can say is that we will book with Lorna and Greg every time now! Deckhouse was just perfect for the two of us, but if we ever travel with more people they have rentals on site that can accommodate that as well.
The beach is amazing and you literally have it to yourself the majority of the day. The most people at any time was maybe 6! Snorkeling around the peninsula was amazing. No boat required to get to great snorkeling. The path up and down to the beach is very easy and safe. No issues. Takes less than 2 minutes to be on the beach.
We always ride scooters and we are always on the go around the entire island. This location is perfect for that! Cooking meals also saved us a lot of money as well, which means spending the money on staying longer!
We love our time in Bermuda and cannot wait to come back. It truly is heaven on Earth. Thank you to Lorna and Greg for sharing their amazing property!
Thank you for your quick review. This means alot to us. It was refreshing to watch the energy you guys have. I mean you must have went through over 3 gas tanks of fuel in five days. Amazing. I know it was not much you missed. And to know you were also in the jewellery business like us. I know you can relate to our struggles. Come back! Hopefully soon.
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. We also have our famous Railway Trails which passes close by. Excellent for early morning walks. Perched in the middle of two of the best resort properties in Bermuda (Fairmont Southampton and The Reef's Resort) is GEMSTONES. The Deck House is one of four units. I invite your to view listing 396719 and 450166 (the main house and the two bedroom unit respectively) All units are independent of each other.
