About Lorna Wilson
Married 30 years with an adult daughter (Tiara) and son (Trysten). Our grand daughter (Bella) came into our lives about 2 years ago and has been the blessing we have longed for. My husband, Greg is a watch maker and gemologist. Our daughter, Tiara has followed in his footsteps as a jeweler. Hence, Gemstones is the name of our home. We built this home and completed it in 1998. However, we have only been promoting Gemstones as a vacation alternative for the pass six (6) years. Coming from a hospitality background with over 42 years of experience we know how to greet, meet and enjoy people. At the same time offering a vacation home product like no other in Bermuda. We have a total of 4 units on this property which keeps us very busy. Greg is a professional chef and a very skilled boats man. So keeping me busy is only the half of it. We enjoy travelling especially with our family and very close friends. I invite you to read our reviews on our other listings, after a while you will know all about us. We are at your service.
Lorna Wilson purchased this Guest House in 1992
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.

Amazing Beach and convenient location
The property is great, there were a few small glitches during our stay however Lorna took care of them as soon as we were able to relay them to her. I will state, the beach is no longer private and is very nice and much larger than it was. The beach is now maintained by the hotel, however the hotel guests/hotel doesn't do a great job of cleaning up if the guests leave mid day. There were cups / towels trash left on almost all of the chairs. I think the hotel should have more trash receptacles or a carry in- carry out policy.
A special place
Lovely, bright, clean, and cool. There is no better place to stay on the island. A stones throw from a beautiful beach, a chef's dream kitchen, and lots of natural light, this is the place to stay!
We had such a great stay. The property manager was so kind and accommodating through the entire process. Will definitely be staying again!

Fantastic place, middle of the island, private beach, great hosts what more can you ask for?
The house was beautiful, Lorna was very prompt in answering questions and making helpful hints on activities. The kitchen was well stocked with condiments so don't buy those before you get to the house. The view was incredible! I would definitely stay again.
More beautiful than advertised. Great privacy.
Lorna was an outstanding host. Wonderful experience.
AJ I appreciate the effort you made in making sure your destination event went as planned. Your guests were wonderful. They came, they enjoyed and they returned safely. Thanks for looking after our home. When we host large group the trash is always a big concern. With this group I was pleasantly surprised all the trash was gone. 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)
