Who Are We

About the Free Stay Program

The Little Gem is a self-sustaining social enterprise offering therapeutic vacations to those going through loss or hardship. A portion of our calendar availability is reserved to provide these services at no cost to the client. Every time you stay with us, you contribute to a vacation rental for someone needing rest or a safe haven.

Know someone who is burnt out, recovering from relational or emotional trauma, illness, injury or experiencing a disruptive life transition? Use our quick form below to nominate them for a free therapeutic stay (travel costs not covered).

Hello, I'm Kate Riney
Owner and Host of The Little Gem

It's been a dream of mine to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for those needing rest. Through my own experiences of burnout, illness, injury and hospitalization, I know firsthand how long it takes to recover and how difficult it can be to transition back to "normal life" after trauma. 

Life happens, but you shouldn't have to wait until the perfect conditions come together to enjoy a vacation. Rest is required. That's why I'm so excited to offer the free stay program.
