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.

Gated and location
The lilac cottage accommodated our family of five with no problem. Beach access was amazing and being in a gated community was a plus. The host gave great recommendations. The only downside was that the pictures need updating. Signs of wear and tear throughout are noticeable. Being in this Bahamian paradise we spent a lot of time outdoors. A little TLC to the deck area as well as the beach chairs would go along way. Although Freeport is not what it used to be we enjoyed our stay at Diamonds by the Sea!
Classic beach living
The lilac cottage was perfect for it family of 6. We surf casted from the shore enjoyed the wonderful beach and had a vacation of a life time. Christmas dinner at Berthas blue dingy was a lovely island treat. Gladys is great at communications and very warm and helpful. Coming back very soon.
Thank you so much for your great review.. And you were lovely guests....
Happy New year and hope you come back in 2017 to Diamond By The Sea.
My family and I rented the Lilac and Key Lime houses for our vacation. It was very clean and felt like it was our home away from home! The owner was very friendly and if we needed anything, there was no hesitation on their part! We would be very happy to go there again! There was a total of 9 of us in the two houses and there was room for more! Thank you so much for letting us stay at Diamonds By The Sea! It was a very memorable vacation!
We just returned from staying at this beautiful property. Clean, bright and literally steps from an 8 mile stretch of pristine beach. The grounds are beautifully manicured, the beach was raked every day and is basically private (most days we were the only people for miles). Gladys (the owner) was very responsive to all of our needs and was a wonderful host. So many things to do on the island that we had no problem filling up our days beyond reading on the beach. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and I am so happy you and your family enjoyed your stay at Diamonds By The Sea. You were really great guests and hope to see you again next year. Gladys
This was our second time visiting Diamonds by the Sea and we have loved every moment of it! The property is beautiful, secluded along with a private beach just a short walk from the deck, where you can enjoy the amazing sunrises and sunsets. The house has everything you could possibly need for a stay including a washer/dryer, A/C and cable (although we never turned the TV on once because paradise is right outside of your door). We will be back in April again and cannot wait! It is a nice break from the COLD New England winters and we look forward to our trip every year!
Thank you so very much for your beautiful review. It really makes me feel so good when my guests are happy and enjoy Diamonds by the Sea. And so pleased that you will be back again in April 2016!!!! Stay warm during the winter and April is the perfect month in the Bahamas. Sincerely, Gladys
Beautiful tropical escape!!
Lovely, secluded property right on the beach. The grounds are meticulously maintained with access to the water down a pretty path. The cottage has three colorfully decorated bedrooms and I can't say enough about the living room and kitchen areas! Everything you could need is provided, from cooking utensils to beach towels and chairs. Really, all you need to bring to Diamonds is a bathing suit! The owner is a wonderful woman named Gladys who makes everyone feel welcome, and graciously takes care of any concerns. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, a fun bar, and snorkeling right off the beach! Our families love going to Diamonds and we have made it an annual destination for three years now, with more to come. Can't recommend it highly enough!
Thank you so much for a wonderful review. So happy that you all come back every year, look forward to that... you are super guests and great fun. It is a pleasure when you are at Diamonds bythe Sea. See you in 2016!!!
