Our 25th anniversary trip - and it was perfect. Really mellow, with beautiful blue water beach, Hance (the owner) was so helpful in arranging the cave tour and fishing/eco-tour excursion, not to mention giving our car a jump, we just liked him and the vibe he set. honor bar was cool.

I can't say enough about how amazing our stay at Gems was. Shavonne and Franz are the best hosts you could ever have. We'll definitely come back to Long Island again. It's really a gem (pun intended) and much better than being in the tourist traps of the bigger islands. If you're looking for a serene vacation, this is the... More

We made arrangements thru Hance to rent a vehicle with Unique Wheel Rental. We were met at the airport by a very friendly lady from... More

We stayed at the Gems for 4 days in October. Before we had even arrived, the owner Hance helped arrange our flights from Nassau, our rental vehicle, our meals and answered my many many questions about this island. Service was top notch!

Hi Jodie K, We are disappointed that you took your displeasure in the receipt of your cords damaged in international shipping in the manner you did. Hance without any charge to you delivered your cords left in the room to Fedex (a 25 mile round trip journey). As he explained Gems is in no way responsible for damages incurred during... More

The kitchen was always clean and had a fridge, toaster and microwave, along with utensils. We bought bagels/ granola bars for breakfast at the local stores (which are small), and... More
