Property description

Looking for a condo that is close to good restaurants and tourist attractions, but away from the 7 Mile beach 'scene''?

Within 20 minutes from the airport (direct flights from New York, Toronto, Chicago, Miami), 5-10 minutes to Seven Mile Beach, and a few minutes to the closest dive shop, our condo is a convenient, yet private location.

Enjoy walking, snorkeling, or relaxing in a chaise on Pappagallo Beach, the last unspoiled, and undeveloped beach on Grand Cayman. We are the only condo development on this gorgeous 2 mile stretch of pristine white beach against a multitude of turquoise variations. Adjacent to the National Park, Pappagallo Beach is abundant with marine and wildlife…a snorkeler’s and naturalist’s dream come true! Hiking trails, bird watching, kite sailing, and picnic activities are all available in the park. For those who like to fish, there are plenty of meals waiting to be caught right off the beach, and great bone fishing nearby.

For the 'foodies' or anyone who enjoys a good meal, the best and most interesting restaurants are within minutes of the condo. Your major decision will trying to chose which restaurant to go to. There are a lot of rally great restaurants on the island and most of them are very close to Pappagallo.

This is a place where R&R is the number one priority. You can be as active, or inactive as you want. If you want to be part of the tourist scene of jet skiers, para-sailing, bars, cruise ship scene etc., Seven Mile Beach is just minutes away. If you want to sit on the beach with a good book, listen to the waves, watch the birds, dig your toes in the sand, count the shades of blue (so far, the list is at 80), and give yourself some space to re-charge, your chaise awaits you.

Our guests regularly tell us that it is the best vacation that they have had, and consequently, we have many repeat visitors. We take great pride in providing a very high standard of comfort, hospitality and an environment that is more than the average rental property. The décor, furnishings, appliances etc. are continually updated in an upbeat, island style. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need, for those who prefer dining out, there is one of the best restaurants across the street, and another five minutes away. There is also take-out food and a grocery store nearby.

The condo has been set up with focus on comfort, efficiency and a great vacation experience. The condo is exceptionally light, clean, large, spacious, and uncluttered. Our guests repeatedly tell us that the unit is everything if not more than they expected and and how much they appreciate the welcoming ambiance and upbeat beach decor in white with splashes of tropical color. The unit is equipped with WIFI, cable TV, central air-conditioning,blow-dryers, games, and puzzles. There is a king size bed in the master and twins in the second bedroom (can be made into a king) and nearly everyone comments on how comfortable the beds are. There are four balconies with views off the unit and comfortable Muskoka chairs off the living room. The sunken living room has extra high ceiling which makes the unit feel larger and spacious. The unit is larger than many of the two bedrooms in the complex and the combination of good design and good furnishings make for a very comfortable living experience and consequently more enjoyable vacation.

Our condo has superior views, is excellently equipped, is regularly updated and is one of the best condos in the complex. The second floor bedrooms and bathrooms have been renovated in September of 2015.

At this condo you will receive a pre-vacation information package, be properly received by an appointed on island representative who will 'meet and greet' you and make sure you are comfortable with the apartment, and you will have 24/7 back-up emergency support system if needed. You have the peace of mind of knowing you have an invaluable organized support system before your trip and emergency back-up during your stay. Many of our guests tell us that the effort that goes into making their stay as informative and safe as possible is an added bonus that means a huge difference to their overall vacation experience. The attention to detail and extra TLC are some of the reasons many of them come back again.

Having owned our condo for over thirty years, we have enjoyed sharing knowledge and experience with our guests in the hope that they leave with wonderful memories of their own. We spend a lot of time and energy to make this property a 'special place' and so far we are continually told that we surpass expectations. If you would like to know more about this condo, please feel free to contact us.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: We are a Canadian family who have owned at VP for over 30 years and love it as much as the day we bought. We enjoy walking the beach, watching the seabirds, snorkeling off the jetty, and experiencing the Cayman 'laid back' lifestyle. Sometimes our main activity/accomplishment is if we can figure out what to have for dinner and it usually means walking across the street to one of the best restaurants on the island Restorante Pappagallo!

Why the Owner Chose North Side, Cayman Islands:
We have always loved that this unit is NOT on Seven Mile Beach. We have all the amenities close by within 5-10 minutes, yet we still have a very natural setting with the 'old Cayman' ambiance and are not inundated with cruise ship visitors, tourists, jet skis, para-sailing and water skiing. We also know that this condo complex is the best price value on the island. The condos are big, spacious, with wonderful views. The lovely high ceilings make them feel even bigger.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have one of the best views in the complex and a wonderful cross breeze. The condo is spacious, comfortable, clean, well appointed and regularly updated in an upbeat island style. Our guests tell us that they appreciate the small touches and comfortable beds. We are fully licensed and meet all the Department of Tourism requirements and we ensure that our guests have all the information they need before they leave as well as good back-up once they are on island.
