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...

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.

Gems was a perfect place to stay on Long Island! We were greeted by Hance, the owner, who upgraded us to a one bedroom suite with access to the kitchen. 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...
