Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice! Highly recommend. Eric is extremely helpful. We crossed in our 30' boat and the dock was perfect. Having water & power on the dock made for icing on the cake. Thank you to the Diamonds for providing such a wonderful place to stay in Westend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. The hurricane "eye" came right over the house but luckily only minor damage. The island received an enormous amount of damage. Relief efforts have begun and power and water services will slowly return. We will repair our damage in the coming weeks and look forward to your return. Regards, Wayne and Debbie Diamond

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

I made the crossing from West Palm Beach, and couldn't have asked for a better set up. The boat was docked right behind the house, 30 Amp electric was available, freezer for bait and ice, in addition to a fish cleaning table to filet the days catch. We had 6 adults on the trip and between the 2 bedrooms and trundle bed in the living room, it worked quite well. Plenty of room and overall the house and appliances are in great shape. Eric, was our local contact, and was very attentive to our needs and made sure we had everything to make our stay enjoyable. If you're looking for a private home to rent, I highly recommend considering this property.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

House is immaculate and very cute. Has everything you need. Dock is great and there is plenty of freezer storage for fish, ice, and bait. The caretaker Eric is a great guy and will take you to restaurants, stores, sightseeing. I highly recommend. Have been there twice this summer and going back again August 1 for lobster season. This is a perfect place to rent if you have a boat and want to have a really nice time.

Fun Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic. Walk out the front door onto the beach and the beauty of the crystal clear water. Walk out the back door to your boat tied up to the dock. Two freezers for bait, fish etc. House is clean, cool A/C and fully equipped. Eric that lives nearby is attentive and checks frequently to make sure you have all the essentials. He and is brother are two gems and offer lots of information about fishing, snorkeling, restaurants etc. We will be back.

About Wayne and Deborah Diamond

Our permanent residence is on the east coast of Florida and a mere 2 1/2 hours away from 'Diamondhead.' We love being able to jump in our boat and head away for a weekend or a week.

Wayne and Deborah Diamond purchased this house in 2006

Why Wayne and Deborah Diamond chose West End

Our family enjoys fishing and boating as well as quiet times to foster family relationships. 'Diamondhead' has provided us the opportunity to 'get away from it all' and enjoy our times together.

What makes this house unique

'Diamondhead' has provided our family with a quiet retreat to vacation with our children. Now that they are adults, they return with their friends and loved ones to make new memories and continue those special family times.
