|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
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.

Comments: With our Family of 7 persons we stayed in the Lilac and Sea Shell Cottage for 10 Days. What a wonderful time we had! The accomodation was perfect; everything we needed was there; including Beach towels and private wooden chairs and facilities on the Beach where we spent most of the time with the kids. The caretaker Shirley was very kind and helpfull.
We really loved the Beautiful island and we like to recommand this vacationhouse to every one!!!
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.
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.
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!
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!
We've been coming to Diamonds by the Sea cottages for six years and this past year was as great as our first year there. We stayed just over five weeks in February /March, 2015 and enjoyed every moment. The Lilac Cottage is nicely appointed with everything one would want both inside and outside the house. Three bedrooms gave us ample room to have friends and family visit without ever feeling cramped. One of the best features of Diamonds is it's location, next to one of the best beaches anywhere with warm waters and, for those who like to snorkel, plenty of fish and coral to explore. Gladys, the owner, is a sweetheart who will do whatever needs to be done to guarantee a fulfilled, enjoyable stay on Grand Bahamas. While some visitors don't rent a vehicle, we always have as most attractions and grocery stores are ten minutes or further away. That said, four beach bars / restaurants are within walking distance, Banana Bay being our favourite. In short, we really enjoy our visits to Diamonds-by-the-Sea, we aren't able to go in 2016 and we'll miss it... a lot.
