We stayed at the Diamonds by the Sea in the one bedroom Seashell Studio the first week of Feb 2018. It its a one bedroom, with bath and screened in kitchen area. There is a great patio area for eating meals when the weather is nice, which it was during our entire stay. It is equipped with all the essentials for cooking and meal preparation.
The wi-fi was certainly appreciated since I had to keep in touch with my business. The patio area is nicely separated from the other properties so there is a private space on the patio for meals, reading and afternoon cocktails. All our other neighbours were friendly and sociable.
Gladys is an excellent host, as she would try to make the rounds of all the vacationers to see how everyone was doing, if we needed anything, or just to provide some advice on great places to eat. This was appreciated when we were determining our night out dinner experiences.
The Sandbar Beach and restaurant and bar just several hundred metres to the west of the Diamonds was great as was Cappuccinos. Great Italian food. The Sabor, located at the Pelican Bay Resort at the north end of the Lucayan Market is also excellent.
We'll be back, an excellent property and very relaxing without the horde of people and partiers.
I recommend that vacationers bring a full supply of personal toiletries and soaps.
You should consider a car as this locations is outside Freeport approximately 5 km. so if you intend to get around the island and grocery shop, a car is almost essential. We understand that Gladys will pick you up from the airport.
Eden Cottage is a terrific location if you are looking for peace and quiet and well as immersion in the local culture. We met lots of friendly locals during our week stay and look forward to seeing them again! The beach in front of the property is beautiful and perfect for long walks. However, be careful and be on the lookout for broken glass that has washed up on shore. We had our rental car (a must) and was able to easily visit East and West end and other gorgeous beaches along the way. The house had everything we needed, but would have been small for 4 adults- which was our initial plan. We cooked several of our meals there and had no problem. We will be back.
