Mounting NTFS for users

I am trying to mount my usb harddrive on my laptop and let a user access it. I know since it's NTFS, i will only be able to read and not write. Here is what I added in the fstab:
/dev/sda1 /home/diego/mnt/sda1 ntfs auto,user,rw,sync 0 0

Then I run mount -a so the changes can take effect. From the user diego, I go to ~diego/mnt/sda1 and I get Permission denied. I took a look at permissions and I get this:
dr-x------ 1 root root 8192 Sep 20 06:28 sda1

Root is the only one that can access this. I thought by changing to user in the fstab file, a normal user could access the harddrive? Where did I go wrong?
