Banana Wind
Posted on: 10/2/2020

This is a beautiful home and lots of room for everyone in the family. Their appliances are top notch and in addition to refrigerator ice they also have a Kitchen Aid ice maker. The king beds were great-great mattresses and the pillows as well. We had a lovely stay.

Wonderful house, great time
Posted on: 4/3/2020

Banana Winds was perfect for our family getaway. We had a great time at the beach and in the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary pots and pans etc. We just needed to provide food and prep. We had all the privacy we needed for two families of young kids and Grandpa. The outdoor grill was a huge asset.

Posted on: 4/3/2020

The house was great! Very clean.
We had 11 people in our group and everyone had a wonderful time and was very happy with the house.
Your timely response to our texts was great.
Thank you so much. We will definitely contact you for our next visit.

Our stay was really great. House really came furnished with everything you need. Kitchen was well supplied with cookware, etc.
Nice outdoor areas, new grill, pool was good also bigger than most.
We will be booking the house again! We only had 4 adults this time but house will accommodate much more plenty of bedrooms.
Close to the beach easy walking distance.

A dream vacation

I rented the Banana Wind beach house to celebrate my 50th birthday with my family/friends.  The pictures definitely did it justice and we enjoyed every moment of our stay!

Great Family vacation home
Posted on: 9/7/2019

Large house with pool and elevator which was great for my 74 year old mother.  Tons of room for meals and family fun.  Everything we needed to cook there which we did several times. Several nights we just sat on the balcony and enjoyed the beautiful view and sound of the waves. Also, bedrooms large enough for privacy if desired. Would recommend Banana Wind to anyone who loves the beach and would like a big beautiful home to enjoy that is steps from the beach.

Spectacular Ocean View

Property is very clean and very spacious and is equipped with everything you need for a fabulous vacation. The view of the ocean was spectacular. We had one of the best family vacations we have ever had.

We loved the house lay out. It was perfect for 11 and could definately accommodate 13. Loved the location near the beach. Pool was wonderful.

As advertised
Posted on: 8/9/2019

This house was as fabulous as it looked, maybe even a little bigger than we thought, but really appreciated the accuracy of the pictures -- we knew exactly what we were getting into, and it was a FANTASTIC VACATION HOME.  Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, a somewhat plain pool but the water volleyball set someone left behind turned it into fabulous play time! Note: We enjoyed the fact that it's on the back side of the property where other houses have their pools in front.
The cleanliness, overall facilities/amenities, condition of the home, etc. -- all excellent as we expected.  The details & expectations provided up-front, the support and responsiveness we received in reply to our questions before and during our stay -- HIGH MARKS to Diamond Gulf Rentals!  A pleasure to deal with; we will look to work with them again in the future.  READ their materials and you will not be surprised or disappointed in any way -- they know what they're doing and take good care of their guests.  Ask questions and they're happy to help you feel comfortable/confident in staying with them.
We'd love to stay at this house, or with this rental company (or both) again soon, after our recent experience (July 6-13, 2019).

I'm so glad we had this time together

 The house is lovely, with excellent location to everything but far enough away to be secluded.

Best stay ever
Posted on: 6/14/2018

 My bridal party and my family had an amazing time in the house. It accommodated everything and everyone. This was by far one of the best vacation home we ever stayed in. Definitely coming back next year.

Perfect Getaway Home
Posted on: 6/14/2018

 We had a pretty large group stay at Banana Wind - 11 people, and loved it! It is so close to the beach, the pool is large and the house is super clean. We could not have asked for a better rental property.

Gorgeous house, perfect location!
Posted on: 6/14/2018

 The house made our trip! It was central to everything we wanted to see & a 5 min walk to get our toes in the ocean. We also loved being inside. It was clean, spacious, and had great views.

I would recommend!

Pros and cons of Banana Winds: Pros: -Close to beach access. -Close to grocery store and some shopping. -Plenty of space in the home. -Heated pool was comfortable -Agency was helpful with maintenance issues and resolved them relatively quickly. -Excellent views of the ocean on the southern balconies. -Every bedroom has a large, high quality TV and some rooms have a Roku and others have BluRay or DVD players. -Each room has plenty of closet space and nice bathrooms. -Good wifi signal throughout the building. Cons: -Maintenance issues including nonfunctional range hood, outdoor fireplace issues requiring a repair from the gas company, bulbs on the terraces being burnt out, and several bathroom fixtures were completely missing upon arrival at the house. These issues were somewhat resolved over the next few days. -The garbage disposal stopped working, prompting us to look inside and discover mold growing in it. This is clearly overlooked in the cleaning process. -We happened to schedule our stay amidst some construction next door that continued almost 24/7 during our entire time here. -The fact that it’s on a corner lot meant we heard lots of road noise. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay at this home. The location puts it conveniently close to tourist areas, but not so close that they are on top of you. The beach was clean and close with beautiful white sands. The home, despite SEVERAL maintenance issues, was nice and large. Each member of our group had their own area, with plenty of space in the kitchen/living room for us all to be together. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, but we did a lot of cooking in the large kitchen. If the rental agency can get on top of the maintenance problems and clean a little more thoroughly, this COULD be a five star property. I would, however, recommend a stay at Banana Winds.

 Property is very nice and clean! Love the location. Very close to beach and really appreciated the bikes and beach set up this year!

The Perfect Home for Us!
Posted on: 12/20/2016
Great experience! We loved the house. Three sets of family and two grandmas. It was perfect for all of us and a group of our size (16). The house is beautiful and having the pool was really convenient on days the ocean was churned up.
