  • Wonderful Vacation

    "We had a great vacation in Grand Cayman and really appreciated staying in this condo. Even though it wasn't ocean-front, it did have an ocean view. The condo is very close to the beach and is in a good location on Seven Mile Beach. The beach itself is beautiful for walking and swimming. We liked the condo layout and there was plenty of space. The kitchen was well-equipped, which made it easy to fix our breakfasts and lunches. The owner's recommendations for dinner were very helpful and we enjoyed all of the restaurants we tried. I was a little nervous about renting the condo, since I've always stayed in hotels or used property management companies, but the owner was great. He promptly and patiently answered my questions and the logistics all went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend this condo and owner and hope to stay here again in the future."

  • Couldn't ask for more

    "This condo was home away from home. It had everything that we needed and couldn't ask for more. The pictures speak for themselves and are exactly what you will find at Amy and Leonardo's place. I highly recommend this place! The communication was very pleasant and straight forward. I hope to be back again soon! Angie"

  • A delightful home in a beautiful setting!

    "We go to Cayman every summer for August and have been staying at Harbour Heights for several years now. This condo was definitely the most beautiful and comfortable. Lovely position as well with your parking space directly behind the unit. The kitchen also was well equipped and had everything we needed - comfy beds - great internet. We just were truly delighted with everything, and Jill, the owner, could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We will be back!"

  • R & B

    "The condo and location were excellent. We enjoyed Breakfast with the Stingrays through Red Sail Sports. Stingrays were amazing and snorkeling and sailing back were great! Walking on Seven Mile Beach was beautiful. Drove to Rum Point and Starfish Point to see red starfish. Guys enjoyed Cayman Auto Museum. Had wonderful food and drink at LaDolceVita, Guy Harveys, Cimboco, Chicken Chicken, XQs and the barbeque ribs and chicken at Billy Bones. Enjoyed meeting many nice people on the condo beach and at the hot tub. We would highly recommend this condo."

Caribbean Travel Tips

Activities and Attractions at Caribbean Vacation Rentals

The Caribbean Sea holds a treasure of tropical islands that make for the ideal type of vacation destination. You can choose from glamorous resort complexes with entertainment, casinos and luxury hotels, or you can find a quiet cabin on a remote island and pass the days lazing about in a hammock. There are islands that are ideal for birdwatching, whale watching or swimming with dolphins. There are also several islands that have protected marine reserves where turtles come ashore to nest. No matter what your interests are, they all have persistent sunny and warm weather all year-round, beautiful sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters and beautiful coral underwater reefs.

If you want to do nothing more than catch some rays on a beautiful beach, you may have a hard time deciding which island destination to visit. The Caribbean is also rated as one of the world's best scuba diving destinations. The warm tropical water provides the ideal habitat for colorful hard and soft corals to form. In addition to the natural reefs, ancient shipwrecks have become the sites for many artificial reefs. Water sports are also right up there on the list of top activities. Choose from sailing on a luxury yacht, exploring the coastline in a sea kayak, going on a snorkeling excursion or playing in the waves on a Jet Ski. There is also excellent deep sea fishing and many charters available in the various island marinas.

On the islands, you will find a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Many of the islands have a history relating to the slave trade and sugar plantations. There are many historical sites and museums that are interesting to visit. Shopping is another favorite visitor pastime. Some islands have streets filled with luxury boutiques offering the very latest in fashion, appliances and accessories. Other less developed islands have more quaint shops and street markets where you can buy crafts.

Stylish Caribbean Villas

In the Caribbean, you can find an island destination that fits both your interests and budget. If you prefer a rustic-style vacation, there are many cozy cottages tucked away in seaside villas. If you want to be where the glitz and glamour is, then you can seek out some of the top Caribbean resorts. Some islands have private villas that are large enough to accommodate wedding parties or host family reunions.

Visitors to Caribbean Resort Rentals

The Caribbean is favorite honeymoon and wedding destination for visitors from North America. It is the closest tropical paradise and there are often very good honeymoon deals to be found. The islands attract people who enjoy the beach, long hours of sunshine, water sports and nature. Land adventures on some of the more remote islands attract the more adventurous type of travelers. The Caribbean is a top diving destination and people travel from all over the world to dive the islands' coral reefs. There are many resorts that cater specifically for families by providing kids' clubs and entertainment for children of all ages. This allows parents to have a bit of a break from family responsibilities and reconnect with one another as a couple while the kids play with newfound friends.

Seasons to Travel to the Caribbean

The Caribbean straddles the equator and most islands therefore have a typically tropical climate. This results in warm year-round weather with high levels of humidity. Many of the islands are prone to tropical storms which take place in the late summer months between June and October. The peak travel season for most Caribbean vacation destinations is between December and January when the weather is more temperate.
