a week in paradise

Stayed: May 2010
We stayed at the Key Lime cottage in May of 2010 and had just an incredible time! We had never been to the Bahamas before and any expectations we had of staying on a pristine and unspoiled beach, waking to the sound of the surf, swimming and snorkeling in crystal waters, and great hospitality were greatly exceeded! We were with our 2 children and their friends and this was the ideal place to relax and let "island time" become our time. We walked the white sand beaches and snorkeled for the first time. There was a fantastic little bar/restaurant just down the beach from us...incredible tropical drinks and conch!! We went there almost every day for lunch. Don't miss the live music on Sunday night! Also, thanks to a recommendation from a bartender there, we found a wonderful fishing/snorkeling guide. In fact, we spent most of our last day with him on his boat fishing, reef snorkeling, and diving for sand dollars. He even made us a fabulous conch salad from the conch he dove for earlier that morning.
It took us a long time after we returned home to stop thinking about what a great time we had there. Gladys is the absolute best hostess...giving us guidance when we asked, but giving us our total privacy...the best of both worlds for the kind of vacation we like. We can't wait to go back! Huge thanks to Gladys!!

It is a really great feeling when my guests enjoy themselves and find Diamonds bythe Sea as well as Grand Bahama to be a hospitable and lovely place to vacation.
