East End condo description

We have a second floor condominium located at Castaways' Cove at The Reef Resort. It is a 2 bedroom unit with a private balcony overlooking the Caribbean where you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening ocean sunset or anything in between. We are steps away from the white sand beach and the water’s edge.
.............................................................................................
Both bedrooms have a king size bed. There are 2 full bathrooms, both with tub and shower, a fully equipped kitchen, and a living/dining room area with 2 pull down Murphy beds, TV, CD, DVD system. Each bedroom has a TV as well. There is a private balcony off the living room overlooking the ocean. It has a table and chairs.
.............................................................................................

The condo does have a lockout door which allows for customization of the rental space based on your needs. The unit can be split into a studio and a 1 bedroom unit as well as remain as a 2 bedroom unit. It can be rented to accommodate 2 people, 4 people or 6 people.
...........................................................................................

The second bedroom (a studio) has a kitchenette with a microwave, coffee maker and bar refrigerator and a full bath. This studio can be rented separately as it has it's own private entrance. The studio has a sliding glass door which leads to the covered balcony overlooking the ocean. There is seating for 2 on this lanai.
.........................................................................................

The other side has 1 bedroom, full kitchen, living room/dining room, full bath and a lanai that seats 4.
............................................................................................
Relaxation, fun and ease are the theme of this environment. Whether you want to take a short walk 2 buildings over for a fine dining experience, a casual meal near the water or to go across the street to the food market and prepare a meal in the comfort of the condominium, the choices are all yours and easily attained.
.....................................................................................................
The Resort has many amenities to suit the needs of a family with varied interests. Water sports, a game room, gym, tennis, spa, books, excursions, and entertainment - all on site -will undoubtedly keep everyone happy.
......................................................................................................
There are excellent dive operators in close proximity to the resort providing access to world class diving.
..................................................................................................
During the day you can relax on the beach in one of the lounge chairs or rent a glass bottom kayak on site at White Water Sports. If you do rent from these guys be sure to say hi to Apollo for me. His motto is 'No grief at the Reef.' And that's the truth!

FOR YOUR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF OTHERS THIS IS A STRICTLY NON-SMOKING UNIT.

                        Condo was well-equipped and in a nice location. The Reef Resort was very quiet for the week we were there, plenty of room at the pool and beach. Snorkeling was fantastic. It was so easy to rent through VRBO and the staff at The Reef was very helpful. Condo was exactly as listed, owner was helpful and easy to work with, I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to try the East End of Grand Cayman.

                        The condo was clean, well stocked, balcony was amazing for dinner every night listening to the waves..the beach was spectacular but you need to bring water shoes..great snorkeling..the condo is at the quiet end of the resort..Nancy answered our questions by email instantly..I advise renting a car to see the sights and take in happy hour 4-6 two for one...I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful relaxing holiday where the waves never stop and the sun shines all day

                        We stayed at Nancy's place in Grand Cayman recently for a week. If you are looking for relaxing, quiet and restful, This is the place for you. Nancy was great to deal with. Helpful tips like water shoes is a must. Very clean place and grounds. The Grand Caymans has a very safe feel to it. It's away from the action hub of Georgetown by about 45 min by car. So if you like seclusion, this is the right place. There are good restaurants in the area, however you will require transportation. Snorkeling is top shelf and water is beautifully warm. We recommend driving to Rum Point area and beach at North Side also.

                        We had a MARVELOUS vacation on Grand Cayman Island! The condo was ideal for us....clean, comfortable, modern, well appointed, and spacious for our 6 family members. Its location right on the beach is ideal. We enjoyed many beautiful sunrises right from our balcony. The adjacent Reef Resort was great - nice pools, nice bar, friendly staff, beautiful beach and lots of water sports on site. Our family preferred the quieter East End to the hustle and bustle of the Seven Mile Beach area yet we never felt isolated. Nancy, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with - very quick to respond to emails and extremely accommodating in all respects. I highly recommend this rental. We enjoyed every second we spent on the island!

                        Unit was very clean & well stocked with bath & beach towels. Definitely put the shutters down in bedrooms & living room at night to keep it dark in the morning b/c the sun rises on that side. Balcony overlooks the water so you can enjoy the view all day. Sometimes we have gone to places where the pools are cold but not here. Also they are very clean. lots of lounge chairs around the pools and on the beach including under the trees. food at resort was very good as well as next door at the Morritts. Italian restaurant across the street was very good. Fosters market is also across the street and has enough of your basic foods to get you through. Tukka is about 5 min for resort and also has good food. Take a trip to Rum Point which is about 20min drive from resort. Beach there is beautiful as well as good snorkeling areas. It has lots of chairs, hammocks and even trees if you need a break from the sun. A must see is String Ray City (went there on last visit also). However do not recommend bioluminescence. Family was disappointed. Thought we would have seen lot more from what we read about it. Only highlight of it was seeing Starfish Point & you got to kayak. Check out when the cruise ships are due in to avoid Georgetown at that time. Definitely rent a car because you are on the east side of the island. Stayed on the east end the last time also because it's so beautiful. Resort was family friendly with several activities for all ages. Staff was very polite & helpful. Nancy was fabulous about answering whatever questions you had prior to going as well as very timely to respond. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay again on our next visit.

                        Our trip to the east end of Grand Cayman was relaxing and adventurous!!! Our location was optimal for island culture and snorkeling. We had the sun in the morning and shade right when we needed it in the afternoon. Renting our vacation spot from Nancy Paolozzi added to our vacation relaxation. Her condo was very clean and her availability before and during our vacation was a huge comfort. Thank you Nancy for all of your help and guidance in planning and executing a great family vacation.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      Why the Owner Chose East End:
                      My husband and I are avid divers and have traveled to many of the Caribbean islands. We grew very fond of Grand Cayman as it has some of the best diving in the world and the area is clean, safe and the water and beaches are pristine. We were particularly drawn to the East End of Grand Cayman as it is considerably quieter than the West side and has far less traffic. When we purchased our condominium in 2004, we thought we would still travel to other islands. But we have found that the East End of Grand Cayman affords us the best combination of peacefulness, activity and friendly people so this is where we come every chance we get.
