Why this property? "Diamonds in the Sand" is truly a unique property, and honestly, it's our favorite for large family gatherings! How perfect is it to have two separate homes, allowing for your group to spread out a little more? We have personally found this setup great for grandparents that like to enjoy some peace and quiet in the early or evening hours, or for the families with little ones who still take naps. Both houses have their own fully equipped kitchens: that means two refrigerators, two coffee makers, two ovens, two dishwashers, and two sinks--plus both kitchens are outfitted with all the utensils/cutlery needed. Both houses also have their own front load washers and dryers. The freeform saltwater pool is situated between the two homes and truly is a private oasis for your group. The large tanning shelf is perfect for little ones to splash and play or for the adults to hang out in the sun while staying cool in the water.

Perfect for families!
This property is unique in that it is actually two houses on one property. It was perfect for us since we were traveling with a group of 16 including noisy teenagers and infants that needed a quiet place. The carriage house allowed quiet time for the babies while the rest could enjoy laughter without worrying about noise. The pool between the houses with the perfect gathering place for all of us to enjoy each other! Super close to the beach and the golf cart made getting there a breeze. Our house were amazing and even helped us find a chef to cook for us while we were there. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had a great vacation. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much, Shauna! You guys were excellent guests and we will look forward to welcoming you back soon and for years to come!!
This place felt like home!!!
This home was so clean and well-stocked. We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving meal. We loved that that the beach was so close. We had a family of 18 and the two homes allowed us to be together around the centralized pool, but have separate time when needed. We were comfortable and the one level front house was perfect for my elderly dad who can't manage steps. We will definitely return again and again!
