About the Property

Two Bedroom, two bath fully equipped home with 35 foot dock

If you are looking for a vacation rental to relax and get away from it all, 'Diamondhead' is for you! 'Diamondhead' is a 1200 square foot fully equipped 2 bedroom, 2 bath family home approximately 55 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida. It is easily accessible by commercial or private air service as well as by boat. We are bordered by the inlet on one side and a canal on the other with the ocean outside of our back door. This family home is completely furnished and available with all kitchen appliances as well as pots, pans, dishes, glasses and silverware. There is a full-sized washer and dryer. The house comes complete with DirecTV and Wi-Fi. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed while the second bedroom is equipped with twin beds. A trundle bed is located within the great room area. There is a 35 foot dock equipped with electricity and water as well as a storage shed with a freezer for fish and bait. A barbecue grill is included. Our home is in a quiet, secluded area; however, there is a large resort located a few minutes away. Snorkeling for lobsters is available out back while fishing for Wahoo is within shouting distance. Pets will be considered on a case by case basis and, if accepted, a pet fee of $50 will be applied. A $150.00 cleaning fee will also be added.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose West Grand Bahama, The Bahamas:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'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.
