Studio Apartment close to the beach
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.

5 Days In Paradise
My wife and I could not be more pleased with the accommodations and location of Lorna and Greg’s gorgeous home! It is nestled on a bluff between two 5 star resorts and just a short stroll to one of Bermuda ‘s incredibly beautiful beaches. The oceanfront view from the studio is spectacular with a constant breeze of of the ocean. We walked to outstanding restaurants, the rail trail, horseshoe cove and warwick beaches. Lorna was the perfect host! We’ll be back!

I'd Give 10 Stars If I Could!
Bermuda is the most beautiful place on earth, but you probably already know that if you're reading this! And Lorna & Greg's rental is the most perfect place to stay in paradise. They're wonderful people, and the accommodations are perfect. The rental is a studio but has everything you need... Fridge, oven, stove, cooking utensils, dishes of all types, iron, and a shared washer/dryer right next door. All of these amenities are perfect if you're goal is to have a kitchen and have access to do laundry to save a bit of money. The bed is very comfortable, the shower works well, and the television has plenty of channels. But more importantly, the views from the shared deck above the unit and the location are what truly make this property perfect. The semi private beach is just down the hill, maybe a 3 minute walk away. It's amazing to have such easy access to such a perfect beach. Rarely were there more than 5 or 6 other people to share the area with, and during the time we were there, we were able to use the very nice loungers & umbrellas the Southampton Resort keeps there. However, Lorna & Greg have a variety of beach equipment to use if these weren't available. Also within walking distance is the lighthouse, The Reefs resort restaurants, Henry VIII restaurant, Henry's Pantry Store, where you can purchase beer, bus tickets, etc. (But only bus tickets. Ask your taxi driver to stop by the nearby post office or elsewhere to buy a book of tickets if you plan on using the bus often). We also walked to Horseshoe Bay and the surrounding beaches twice. It's a bit further, but we found it well worth the trip... You don't want to miss these. Make sure to take the short cut through the Southampton Resort's driveway on the opposite side of the road to save some time/steps. Overall, we found this to be a great location to navigate the island. We used buses throughout our entire stay, and a stop is located just up the hill at the top of the driveway. Thank you so much to Lorna & Greg, as well as Brenda (housekeeper/check-in/check-out) and Edward (taxi driver) who helped give us a perfect week in paradise. You're all such great people. No one could regret staying at this property. We won't stay anywhere else when we return... And we definitely will be returning!
Great stay, perfect location to a semi private beach, would definitely stay here again. Lorna was very responsive in getting back to us via email.
We Loved Deck House
The Wilson property on South Rd. is just perfect for a lovely, quiet stay in beautiful Bermuda. We enjoyed every day in this little slice of Paradise, with an amazing view, private beach and easy access to restaurants and favorite sites. Mornings and evenings spent on our deck, overlooking Bermuda's deep blue water was magical.
Thank you Linda. For your first time in Bermuda I am glad we had the opportunity to meet you even if it was for an hour. So glad the Deck House met your needs. Great.
Deck House Stay May 2019
Great property (a little hard to find as it is down the hill) to stay in while we toured Bermuda. Lorna was very friendly and informative. Will be back for sure!
We are hidden yet in plain sight. You will be surely fitter when you leave. Happy you enjoyed your stay, come back anytime.
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.
