Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Marilyn and I invite you to visit our favorite place, our luxury oceanfront home-away-from-home at George Town Villas. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is located near the south end of Seven Mile Beach. It boasts spectacular views, the privacy of a third floor unit and comfortable amenities. A covered patio with balcony overlooks the ocean, George Town Harbor, beach, pool and gardens.

George Town Villas offers convenience to George Town, without the noise or tourist traffic, being set off from the main traffic arteries on aptly named 'Snooze Lane'. Several fine restaurants including 'The Wharf' are within a short walk, as are 'Seven Mile Shops'. A well-stocked supermarket is conveniently located within ~3/4 mile.

The property itself is built around a large manicured garden featuring expansive lawns, palms and plantings. A well-maintained pool near the ocean/beach front is a favorite place for an afternoon visit while waiting for the elusive 'green flash' from the setting sun. For the more athletic, there are snorkeling and swimming off the beach. There is a tennis court on the property.

Grand Cayman is famous for the clarity of its water, its magnificent reefs with hard and soft corals lining vertical walls, and abundant marine life. It is little wonder that it is a favorite destination for both new and experienced divers. Dive charters are readily available and most provide transportation from the condominium. For those who prefer fishing, deep sea fishing charters are available, offering full and half day trips. And for the horticultural enthusiast, the Queen Elizabeth Botanical Garden, located near the eastern end of the island is not to be missed.

About John Metcalf (owner)

John is a physician and professor at the Medical University of South Carolina. Marilyn is a retired executive assistant. Both of us love scuba diving, and photography.

John Metcalf (owner) purchased this condo in 2001

Why John Metcalf (owner) chose George Town

First visited Grand Cayman on vacation in 2000 and had the good fortune to stay in a beautiful unit at George Town Villas. Enjoyed it so much that we decided to look for a property on the island. After much searching (at nearly every condo complex on the island), realized that George Town Villas was the right 'fit' for us, combining spectacular views, with convenience to George Town, shopping, and fine dining establishments. While convenient to main shopping areas, it is located off the main highway (West Bay Road) to avoid traffic noise and tourist pedestrian traffic.

What makes this condo unique

Views from the family room and patio, watching the ships in George Town Harbor, and the sunsets, which are often spectacular. An excellent shallow snorkeling location (wreck of the Gamma) is located a short walk south of the complex.

Becoming a home from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo several times now - this time only for a week - but we love the place. It is as the pictures suggest it is, great views, well furnished and a delight to stay in. No, there isn’t really a beach at GTV (only a small one anyway) but it is right on the water and the pool deck puts you right at the waterside.

The development is quiet - we were the only people at the pool this week - and the condo itself is exceptionally quiet, you never hear a thing.

Don’t want to gush too much about the place because we want to return and don’t want to find that it’s fully booked when we do!!! :-)

Top floor corner unit with breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

George Town Villas #303 is a beautiful place. Very comfortable, clean, with a well stocked kitchen, truly a home away from home! It is in a perfect relaxing location on the island, with the most amazing view! We really enjoyed our stay amongst such gorgeous, pristine surroundings!

Our favorite adventure was by far Captain Mario's Aquarius Sea Tours to Starfish Point, Stingray City, and of course snorkeling! Make sure you visit The Cayman Turtle Center, Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park, as well as Rum Point!

We ate delicious meals at the Da Fish Shack, Tukka, The Catch, ICOA, Kaibo.

We will definitely stay in John and Marilyn's condo again during our next visit to Grand Cayman.

Thank you for the treasured memories!

Love the property and beautiful views

  • 3 of 5

Condo 303 needs some work, we have stayed in multiple condos here Year after year and have been very happy with them all. Very disappointed in this one for what we pay. Very large ant problem as we walked in (property manager was called nothing done) and the kitchen stove only 2 burners worked(small ones).
