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.

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.
Paradise in Bermuda
My wife and I had a fantastic time staying at the Deck House. Lorna was a great host. The studio apartment was ideal, the queen bed was comfy, kitchen area was equipped for our needs and the studio was extremely clean. The laundry area was next door to the studio. You will never find a more beautiful beach just a short walk down the incline path and stairs. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the chairs and umbrella was provided by the host. Lorna was also welcoming by providing information about the Island. Lorna also prepared us a “Swizzle” drink that we shared together one evening while we sat on the front deck and enjoyed the music coming from The Princess Resort Beach. Restaurants were close by that we walked to for dinner. If you are looking for a place with beautiful quite setting and awesome beach you will not be disappointed here. Highly recommend!! Thanks Lorna and Greg!!
I am looking forward to your return already. You brought not great but fantastic weather which lasted your entire stay. This was the best August I can recollect. PERFECT!
It's not always you can please everyone but when they come as easy going as you guys were you make my job every easy.
What a great find this property was. Sitting right atop one of Bermuda's most beautiful beaches with a view that will take your breath away. Convenient to the Dive Bermuda shop which was an extra bonus.
Lorna was great and the unit was clean and comfy and met all our needs. There were plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas and we found we had the beach to ourselves part of every day. Fantastic snorkeling right from the beach made this a dream spot. Just add scooter and you have everything you could ask for. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Karen for your accurate review. Summertime is very busy for our little family. I had hoped we could have been onsite more. So happy you and hubby enjoyed your stay with us. So looking forward to your return. Have a great summer.
Cant beat the closeness to private beach
We have taken many beach vacations and by far this is one of the best in terms of closeness to a private beach. Good snorkeling right off shore. 5 min walk to beautiful quiet beach. Unit had all necessities for cooking and we did not need to go out for dinner at all. Sitting on the deck overlooking the beach for dinner is unforgettable! Bed was too soft for us and unit could use more hooks to hang your beach gear. Great hosts who made sure we had everything we needed
Thank you for your quick and accurate review. The Deck House has it's charm and has provided many guest with wonderful and unique momeries.
Everything we hoped for and more!
Last time I visited Bermuda, I packed into The Fairmont with thousands of other tourists. I wanted this trip to be something special for my wife and me. We were not disappointed. The Deck House was perfect in every way. The studio apartment was small but comfortable with a well-appointed kitchenette and beautiful views from the front door. Every morning we had fruit and coffee on the rooftop deck that overlooked some of the most inspiring views I have ever witnessed in all my travels. The protected beach was incredible, and we shared the waterfront with a small group of renters that were always friendly and considerate. A short walk up the hill offered easy access to the bus lines and the Henry VIII restaurant which features the best fish chowder on the Island and some of the freshest sushi I have ever tasted. We parked our trusty moped in front of the apartment and planned day trips north and south from the centrally located venue. Perhaps the best part of the experience was the kind & friendly care we received from owner, Lorna Wilson. She was always available for questions and enjoyable conversation on the veranda, and made our week easy and full of wonderful memories. If you want a genuine and unique vacation experience in Bermuda, forget the mundane hotel experience and live like a true Bermudian at The Deck House or Lorna's other rentals.
Thank you for your wonderful review. You and your wife are very welcome. Team Bermuda!
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.
