Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this apartment for 3 weeks and were delighted to have done so.

The location is first class. You are on 7 mile beach, close to all the amenities of West Bay Road and proximate to George Town.

The apartment is on the ground floor right up next to the beach giving you the impression that you have a private garden that backs on to the beach - a real bonus.

The property benefits from all the amenities of the adjacent Margaritaville Hotel which includes a private beach and lagoon with deck chairs and showers, a number of pools including one that has a bar you swim up to, a hot water pool/Jacuzzi and a children's pool.

The property comprises three good sized bedrooms with plenty of storage for clothes and so on.

There is one en-suite bathroom and one family bathroom.

The linens and towels are changed regularly and the apartments is serviced every day bar Sunday.

The kitchen is of a good size with plenty of cupboards, a large fridge-freezer, a good sized oven with electric rings on top (4) and it is self-cleaning too.

There is a dishwasher, but we did not use that, opting to buy plastic table wear to minimise washing up.

There is a good sized microwave, toaster and toaster-oven and two kettles. The sink is large and deep and the work surfaces incorporate a work top of granite with a breakfast-bar area opposite and on the same work-surface.

The whole apartment has wonderful high speed secured WiFi, there is a local telephone line as well as a Magic-Jack VoiP line for international calls.

The dining room is open-planned and leads from the kitchen into the dining area and from there to the lounge / tv room. The dining table is comfortable to sit at easily seats 6 adults.

The lounge area also seats 6 adults and outside the lounge you have a private patio with deck chairs and garden furniture that leads onto a garden area and then a few paces further to the Caribbean sea.

All in all, I would say that this apartment represents excellent value for money. I would also say that the owner is someone who goes out of his way to help make your stay a good one.

If you are thinking about a visit or a stay in Cayman, look no further!

Owner's Response: 12 Dec 17 Mr. Gorman: I am glad you and your family had a great stay at my condo on famous Seven Mile Beach in sunny and warm Grand Cayman. Thank you for your thorough and kind review. Naturally, I agree with all you said. It is a better description than my own in the headline of the listing! Being retired, I do have the time to call my guests upon arrival to make sure all is well and to encourage them to call for any issues or questions. Thank you for acknowledging that. I hope you have a safe flight back home today to the UK and invite you to visit again. Howard P.S. Thanks, also for not using the dishwasher. That saved me a few bucks or pounds as water and electricity are very expensive items in Grand Cayman. Sure my maid Jennifer appreciated not having to wash dishes every day!

Convenient location, great setting, plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this great property during the week before Christmas with our family of six, including children aged 13, 11, 7 and 20 months. The condo was spacious, with comfortable bedrooms and beds for everyone in our group. The setting is ideal, on the first floor, corner unit, right on the water. It made it really nice for the kids to be able to go in and out via the patio out to the sand. It's a short walk to the beach at the cove, where you can walk in for a swim or snorkel, but that short walk increased the privacy that this corner unit enjoys. The amount of space in the condo, the size of the patio, and access to the beach and pools were all great. The pool and pool bar at this condo complex is really nice. The waterfall and kiddie pool made it more interesting and fun for all ages. The hot tub was great. You have access to the Margaritaville pool as well, but it wasn't nearly as nice as the condo complex pool, so we hardly used it. Being next to Margaritaville was convenient for excursion pick-ups, and we booked pick ups and drop offs from their lobby for several activities.

The only reason I wouldn't give this property a 5 star review (and I wish four and a half stars was an option), was that it is dated, and the living room furniture wasn't very comfortable. The cushioned wicker-style sofas don't really accomodate lounging for my 6'4" husband, myself and my tall 13-year-old, or for the whole family to watch a movie together. Our vacation was marked by up to two hours at a time at the pool or beach, OR some major excursion for up to four hours at a time, followed by cooking/eating and then some down time in the condo out of the sun watching a movie together or playing a game (but let's be honest, there was a lot of movie watching!). Repeat. So being there for just over a week, there was a lot of time spent in the living room. The sofas should be updated to offer a little more seating and more comfort for lounging. The condo is quite roomy and we could have easily had one more person in there for a total of 7, and still had room to spare, but the comfort fell short at the living room.

The kitchen was well stocked for a vrbo, with plenty of room to cook, full size fridge, etc., nice sized dining table, really all quite functional. The dryer was malfunctioning while we were there, but the owner was responsive and attempted to have it repaired quickly. I would definitely recommend this property and stay again!

Owner's Response: 22 Jan 18 Kimberly, thanks for your review. I am here in the condo now and got the dryer repaired! Sorry you had the problem with it. As soon as the Margaritaville Hotel is 100% finished, I intend to update and upgrade the property. Thanks again, and I hope you will indeed return. Howard

Perfect location, recommend to anyone looking to travel to GCI!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Condo 104 at Sunset Cove. It was our first time to Grand Caymen and we LOVED it! Howard, the owner of the condo was very easy to work with and answered all my emails and questions! The condo itself was on the first floor and the views from the property were amazing. The condo itself was clean and well stocked with everything you need for a vacation away from home. The staff at Margaritaville were so friendly and very helpful in helping us decide on things to do locally. While the swim up bar pool was being renovated during our stay, the final result will be amazing. The best part is the location, it is super safe and in walking distance to most amenities (grocery, bars, restaurants, and shopping) so we didn't need a car! And for the days we did venture out, the public bus takes you anywhere for 2.00 a parson!! Already looking forward to our next vacation here and we will definitely be back to stay in this condo.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just got back yesterday from our first trip to Grand Cayman and I can't imagine staying anywhere else if we go back. The condo is clean and nicely furnished, but the location is perfect. The first-level walk-out patio right on the beach is an outstanding feature. The condo and patio are very private being on the corner of the property and you are literally steps from the ocean and the beach, which also feels very private and does not get a lot of walking traffic, which is a plus for us (some people like all of the hustle bustle of being on a crowded beach, but we do not). We loved the lagoon on the beach – it was like having a private pool in the ocean and it's great for kids and floating around and, again, offers a lot of privacy. The beach itself is nice and big so you can play on the sand and run around and there is lots of room (other places have barely any sandy beach areas). We have teenagers and they loved the beach, the pool, the swim up bar for smoothies, the hot tub, etc. The snorkeling just off the beach outside of the lagoon is very good especially when it's calmer out in the morning and at dusk. We saw a turtle many times and all kinds of fish and schools of fish -- be sure to snorkel out to the buoy where the reef ends (but not past it to avoid water craft that might be going by!). The pool was not too crowded and there were always chairs available at the beach or the pool, which is nice. The whole place is laid back and unpretentious, which we like. Everyone we met was down-to-earth and friendly. It's a great location in terms of near the grocery store, liquor store, dive shops, etc. We rented a car because we wanted flexibility to roam the island and visit other beaches, and loved how centrally located we were to pretty much everything -- but this is a good location if you don't have or want to rent a car. The owner is very responsive and available and answered all of my questions before we got down there and was responsive while we were there, too. You will love it if you go!

Paradise in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

Among our family vacations in the Caribbean, this was the best. This three-bedroom condo was ideally-located and furnished to satisfy all of our needs, from married children to grandchildren and even new greatgrandchildren. The chest of sand toys, rafts, and even a paddle board were a real plus. We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the patio right on the water and having practically having our own beach and snokeling area. Lots of things to do for all ages in the Grand Cayman as well. Added advantages were being on the ground floor with no stairs and an owner who was responsive to problems as needed and who had installed a phone that allowed calls to the U.S. and Canada at no charge.
