A peaceful retreat in an unbeatable location

5 out of 5
by from Chicago
Posted May 11, 2015
My friend and I stayed at Gems for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is spectacular and the facilities are lovely. Hance and Shavonne thoughtfully anticipate guests' needs, for example you can borrow a hat, snorkeling gear, kayaks, books, and even an array of personal care products you might have forgotten (or not realized you'd need in the climate). I've never before experienced such gracious and low-key (yet responsive) hospitality. Hance arranged a car hire for us and a cave tour, checked in with us from time to time to ensure that we had everything we needed. Visitors should be forewarned that this is not a touristy island: come here to Long Island for the natural beauty not a pampered commercialized resort experience. There is much to explore but it is not a gourmet paradise and there is absolutely no shopping apart from basic necessities. I recommend that guests request a kitchenette at Gems and bring with them a few luxuries from home (like your favorite ground coffee, granola, and other non-perishable foodstuffs). Ask directions to the Saturday farmer's market (where apparently you can get local fruit and veg, none of which is in the shops). A car is a must, and do ask for a jeep because the side roads are terrible even when dry. Make sure to go to Lovers' Beach (just the other side of Clarence Town), the beauty of which defies description (also a great place for children to play safely in the sea).
