Diamonds by the Sea is situated on one of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in Freeport. The crystal clear waters are several shades of aqua and turquoise. Days can be spent just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful serenity at Diamonds; And after a day on the beach, where on many occasions you can watch Dolphins swimming not far from the shoreline, a great BBQ on your deck, and a Hammock is just what is needed to wrap up a lovely day in Paradise. A short walk on the beach from us, are several beach bars and restaurants and also available are water sports activities, kayaking, sailing etc. We take pride in being one of the rare vacation cottages with privacy and yet less than 5 miles is Port Lucaya with its activities, Casino, restaurants, bars and shopping. We are also proud of the fact that Diamonds is where Keira Knightley chose to live and enjoy for several months while filming Pirates of the Caribbean II in Grand Bahama.

                                                              Our group loved Key Lime. The cottage was exactly as described, and it was SO nice to be just a short sandy-path walk to the beach. Gladys was so sweet and helpful not only through our booking process, but even after we arrived. She even stopped at the house after we arrived to make sure all was ok. We had a great time.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your great review and so glad you had a wonderful stay at Diamonds. You were lovely group to have and hope to see you again.

                                                              Beautiful house

                                                              We really enjoyed staying here for two weeks. We were six people (two toddlers). The porch is really nice and we spent a lot of time here during the day and eating out in the evening. It's a very short walk down to the beach, and it feels very quiet and private. We recommand going to the Sand bar just a short walk on the beach.

                                                              Thank you!

                                                              Hemos estado dos semanas en Keylime y la verdad que nos ha gustado absolutamente todo, su distribución, su limpieza, las comodidades, la cercanía a la playa espectacular, la tranquilidad ya que era como si la playa fuera privada. Realmente nos gustaría repetir y no dudaría en volver a este precioso lugar.

                                                              Muchas gracias han sido unas vacaciones inolvidables

                                                              5 nights in paradise....

                                                              We had 5 amazingly fabulous nights at keylime cottage, it surpassed expectations and we were in paradise...only a few seconds walk from the beach and a few mins from beach side bars it was so quiet and peaceful, exactly what I had hoped for.. It was so easy to book and Gladys and shirley were so helpful in getting us in a few supplies as we arrived late evening. We shall definitely return it was a fantastic way to celebrate turning 40! Banana bay close by was wonderful for lunch and swimming with the dolphins was magical. Wonderful memories until next time... Leeanne

                                                              What a great place to stay.

                                                              We stayed in the Keylime cottage while in Grand Bahama and it was great. Very private and cozy feeling. The cottage was very clean with

                                                              everything you would need. The beach was beautiful and the surrounding property around the cottage was very pretty. Gladys was

                                                              very friendly and there to help if needed. We had a wonderful time.

                                                              Very nice and private place to stay. Loved Margaritaville down the beach. Lots of things to do close by.

                                                              Key Lime Rental

                                                              ALeeds, NY

                                                              The house was well-kept, clean, comfortable and in a fabulous location right on the beach. There were two local bar/pubs within walking distance that were fun for a cocktail. Although we had read that there was a place within walking distance we weren't provided with any information on their location and mistakenly went to the hotel bar to the left and proceeded to get kicked out. However, we figured it out. Note to renters: take a right when on the beach to get to pub! We had two elderly individuals in our group of 6 who had to take the downstairs master suite. It was initially intended for my husband and I, but they could not walk up the stairs. The description could be updated a bit to clarify location of rooms. Also, the description stated that outdoors there was a kayak and 2 bicycles available which there wasn't and would have been great. In addition, there is no plunge pool tied to this rental. The weather was surprisingly cold (40's at night) and we needed to use the 2 heaters available (one for upstairs and one for downstairs) to stay warm. On the second night we were told we had to relinquish one of our heaters to the cottage next door because they did not have any and we froze that night! New heaters were purchased for us the next day however. There was not enough dishware (glasses and cups) for all 6 of us to eat together and although it says toilet paper and soap provided; only one roll in each bathroom (not enough for a larger group of renters). We would have thought there would be a spare under the sink but not. We found out the hard way, so plan on buying extra or bringing some. The deck was a great place to hang out and lots of chairs were available. The outside gardens were nice. Although we hadn't planned on renting a car for the whole time, we did and it worked out great. It gave us freedom to go out and get things as needed and see the sites. We enjoyed the nature center, and the caves and dined frequently at port Lucaya. We went to Luciano's for Christmas dinner which was fantastic. The International Bizarre was quite sad and a real disappointment. Definitely not worth the trip there. Overall, a really nice rental unit in a quiet and relaxed setting; great for family and friends. I would certainly recommend it to others. The owner was very professional in handling all aspects of the rental before arrival but unfortunately was not available to provide us with information while there because she was away.
