About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Discovery Point Club is a beautifully maintained resort that has been awarded a Superior rating by the Cayman Department of Tourism. The resort is located on the western end of World Famous Seven Mile Beach on the island of Grand Cayman. Grand Cayman is the largest of the three British-owned islands in the Western Caribbean Sea and is world renowned for it's amazing beaches, unbelievable scuba diving, snorkeling and deep sea fishing.

Come enjoy this wonderful Caribbean Island Paradise in our first floor, beach and ocean front condominium. Our screened-porch is less than 150 feet from the water; which averages 80+ degrees almost year round. The weather temperature averages 80s by day and 70s by night. Our unit is 1 of 45 Condos in the resort and offers two fully equipped bedrooms, two baths and a fully equipped and updated kitchen. One bedroom has a king bed, the second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, and there is a queen hide-a-bed in the living room for extra guests. The entire Condo can accommodate six people easily.

This Condo is our home and is decorated as such; not decorated as a rental property. There are tile floors, Corian counter tops, stainless steel appliances plus quality furniture and accessories decorated with a sense of true island style.

The 12 foot sliding glass door opens onto a screened-in porch which overlooks world famous Seven Mile Beach and gives you a 'picture perfect' view of the ocean 24 hours a day. Walk outside and you will already be on the beach! Great for watching the sun set or the moon rise! Also great for star gazers!

In addition, there is a new swimming pool and jacuzzi, both ocean side, for the exclusive use of you and your guests 24 hours a day. Two tennis courts, a basketball hoop and numerous BBQ grills are also available for use on the resort grounds.

Daily maid service, broadband internet connection, beach and bathroom towels, satellite television and modern stereo system are provided for your use and entertainment at no additional fee.

Why Tadd Balfour chose Grand Cayman

We chose to buy in Grand Cayman after we vacationed there because we had immediately fell in love with the island. It is a place we always enjoy visiting. It is also a very safe and clean island. The native islanders are some of the nicest people in the entire Caribbean, especially the staff at Discovery Point Resort. Walking right out the front door and being on the beach is a dream come true. There is nothing else like it!

What makes this condo unique

Mostly sitting and appreciating the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. Being able to wake up in the morning, without a care in the world and walking down the hall to see the ocean out through the sliding glass doors. One of our favorite things to do is floating in the ocean on rafts. There is nothing quite like it. We also enjoy purely relaxing which is impossible not to do with the slow pace of the entire island. There are many great restaurants, tourist attractions, marines, and nightlife activities very close to the condo.

Best Condo on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Our girlfriend getaways have been happening for the past 10 years, and we hope to make it another 10 years. This gorgeous condo sleeps 6 very comfortably and there is room enough for privacy for everyone. We would never consider going anywhere else, as this condo has EVERYTHING! From a 20 foot walk to the most beautiful water on earth, to a beach and pool that make staying here a dream come true. The interior is decorated so beautifully, and the view from the front sliding door spectacular. There is a screened in front porch, so if you have had too much sun, you can retreat there. We are avid scuba divers, and there is no better place to be, and the snorkeling right out in front of the condo is some of the best on the island. The management helps us with everything, and they answer all our questions promptly. This condo is on the ground floor, so no stairs to struggle with, and it is less than 10 feet to the beach from the front door. I cannot say enough about Unit #6 at Discovery Point, but if anyone is planning on going to Grand Cayman, look no further for the PERFECT place to stay!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Discovery Point in Grand Cayman was the most wonderful and relaxing vacation ever. The condo amenities at unit #6 were so comfortable and complete that we didn't want to go home. The view from the living area was phenomenal and the easy access to the beach by being on the ground floor was amazing. The condos are close to everything and there is no better view. We will always stay here when visiting Grand Cayman, it just doesn't get any better. Book your trip now and you will agree with me. Enjoy a little piece of paradise.

We'll be back !

  • 5 of 5

I agree with the previous reviews so there's no need to repeat the obvious. The condo is well appointed. My husband and I enjoyed lounging around the beach. We snorkeled quite a bit right out front. The manager and owner were very easy to deal with. The office arranged an excursion for us. We didn't want to leave.

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent seven nights at Discovery Point Club, #6 in late March with one other couple. The first floor condo was a perfect set up for two couples. There was adequate privacy for each couple with separate bathrooms off of each bedroom. Although we really only chose to eat our morning meals at the condo most days, the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dinnerware. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially in assisting us to line up a boating excursion with one of the locals. The water was "50 steps" from the patio door of the condo. It was great. The condo is located on Seven Mile Beach where the water was warm, calm and very clear. The snorkeling was outstanding and although we walked down the beach to Cemetery Reef a couple of times for the highly touted snorkel experience, we soon found out that the snorkeling was nearly as good right in front of the condo. The beach was not crowded at all. There was never a concern for finding empty chairs on the beach like we have experienced at some resorts. The condo faces west and it was a treat each evening to watch sunset from the beach before heading out for our evening meal. For the past several years, our winter travels have taken us to all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. While this was a much different experience, we loved it. It was much more casual, private and relaxing than a busy resort. We were also curious as to how the cost of a condo with food and drink would compare to the cost of an all-inclusive resort. We were all pleasantly surprised at the end of our stay that the cost at Grand Cayman was very comparable to our all-inclusive trip to Mexico last year. The four of us are already discussing a plan for our next trip to Discovery Point Club!

Paradise with all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

. If you want to take the perfect vacation this is the place to be. From our first inquiry about the condo up untill our departure from Grand Cayman, Neil, Annrose and Ollie answered all our questions. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The unit was spotless, beautifully decorated and had everything you would ever need. The washer dryer was a huge asset. No dirty laundry went home. The ground floor location was great for those of us with older knees. The view was priceless. The fruit basket on arrival to the condo was a wonderful surprise. We went to the local Fosters IGA (make sure to take your own bags if you go) and saved money by eating breakfast, lunch and a few dinners at the condo. The view from the beach and snorkeling were so great we wanted to spend as much time there as possible. We spent most of our time out front on the beach and face down in the water watching the ever changing fish show. Our beginners loved it for they did not have to go out very far and could still see many types of marine life. We were far enough from Georgetown that the cruise ship traffic did not affect us but close enough that it was a short trip to shop, sight see etc. We want to thank you for sharing this beautiful condo with us.. Thank you to all the staff at Discovery Point Club for all thier help. We are already talking about our next trip and bringing along the rest of the family. We hope that we will be able to stay here again. Thank you for a vacation that we will never forget.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind words. We are very pleased to share our home with you and by your comments, you and your family enjoyed your stay and the accomodations. My wife and I try to insure everything is in great condition as we like it that way and want our guests to have a good time on the island and not deal with housing issues. Thank you for your kind comments and hope you or friends have an opportunity to use it again.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo in January 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it! The immediate access to the beach and pool were just what we were looking for and the condo is very well appointed and maintained. We would love to return to this complex, and this condo in particular, given the opportunity in the future.
