My husband and I stayed in the Sea Grape studio cottage at Diamonds By The Sea, January & February 2014. The cottage itself was small for long term rental, and better suited for short term, but we didn't mind. It was very efficient, clean, the mattress was firm and comfortable, and the shower wonderful. The service was top notch, prompt, and always friendly. The owner, Gladys, couldn't do enough to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Diamonds is located within a $15.00 cab ride to the Port Luycaya Market and Solomans, the major grocer. We rented a car several times to explore Grand Bahama Island, and experience local culture, but enjoyed our time without a vehicle most. It forced us to spend lazy days on Churchill Beach, which is truly spectacular. The beach is ever changing with the tides, so one day it would be pristine white sand, and the next day littered in beautiful sea shells worthy of collecting. There are 4 restaurants within walking distance on the 3.5 miles of beach, one small(ish) resort, and private homes, yet many days it felt as if we had the beach, and its crystal clear turquoise waters, to ourselves. We were searching for a privacy affording cottage and a little slice of paradise within our budget, and Diamonds By The Sea was exactly that. We can't wait to return next year!
