“Excellent apartment but more impressive Hosts”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

How does one describe a set of perfect hosts, a well maintained apartment, a swimming pool and beautifully designed gardens in which to relax. To qualify and explain the above one has to say Michael and Lionel were the HOSTS of all hosts. We were served a complementary Breakfast every day of our stay and it was better than what we had experienced at some of the hotels that we had stayed in during our trip to Spain. The apartment was very comfortable with a daily cleaning service by our hosts, providing us with clean towels everyday. Nothing was too much trouble for Michael and Lionel. Where to eat, directions to places we were uncertain about, even to the extent to give us a dummy run to show us the directions for our visit the following day. Would we recommend Gemstone? YES MOST DEFINITELY WITHOUT ANY HESITATION.

Just had the most relaxing week at Gemstones. Michael and Lionel are fantastic hosts, very helpful and very welcoming. The villa is gorgeous and is spotless every day. Pool and gardens are beautiful, lovely and quiet, perfect for just getting away from it all. Moraira is a great town, so many bars and restaurants to choose from and 2 amazing beaches, especially El Portet. Thanks for a great week!

Stayed with Michael & Lionel for a perfect 10 day holiday. The appartment was bright and airy and furnished with everything you could want. All kept spic and span together with clean towels everyday. Topped off with a lovely pool and gardens to match, making for a really relaxing holiday with hosts that could not do enough for you.

I can only echo the reviews of others in that this place is amazing. Michael and Lionel are exceptional hosts, nothing is too much trouble and the villa is beautiful. The only reason we haven't booked again this year is that we're trying somewhere a little closer to town. The only thing stopping 'Gemstones' being totally perfect for us was the lack of a bar/restaurant within walking distance. Whilst the peace and tranquillity is wonderful - some may not wish for more - we prefer the option to stroll to nearby places to eat and drink.

“Found our paradise”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was our 3rd Visit and it just gets better. We are getting to know local area very well and is now very much feeling home from home . Gemstones is our little place of paradise . The apartment has everything , and I mean everything you could wish for . Upon arrival a bottle of cava and a large bowl of fresh fruit awaits , with milk in fridge and bottled water also provided before we make the trip to the very convenient supermarket . What can I say about our hosts Michael and Lionel ,...they make you feel so at home and have become two very good friends . Nothing to much trouble and we enjoyed a few evenings out and in with them this year with the highlight being a very good firework display at Javea ..Moraira and surrounding areas are so lovely and we enjoyed watching the sun go down in several beautiful locations .. Most of our days were spent just totally relaxing around the lovely private pool listening to the beautiful silence .. We jumped if the world for a fortnight and totally relaxed .. So 5 star accomodation 5 star hosts 5 star areas and two lovely cats to share the experience with . Can't wait for our certain return..see you ASAP x
