Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6). Snorkeling!

Our Sea Lodge is located directly on the beach along the North Side of Grand Cayman in beautiful Cayman Kai, a secluded tranquil, friendly and safe area.

It is beachfront property with a beautiful sea view that goes from turquoise to deep sapphire. It is protected by a coral reef 200 yards out and provides us great snorkeling whether you are a beginner or an avid snorkeler. Swimming is great in the sparkling, crystal-clear water. Our pristine beach has beautiful sand and is enticing to take a nice walk, relax in the wonderful sun, or build great sand castles. It is never crowded and is very private and peaceful providing that secluded island feeling.

Attractively furnished, two bedroom unit with king size beds in each bedroom each with own newly renovated bath. Our sea lodge sleeps 4 but 2 air mattresses with pumps provided if needed for two children or other guest. Also great for sleeping out under the stars on the screened seaside porch.

There is a fully equipped modern kitchen and outdoor Weber grill.

Netflix, DVD player with movies, WIFI Internet connection, and pay as you go cell phone for use anywhere.

Bedrooms have Air Conditionining, but it's not often needed with the nice tropical breezes and the wonderful louver doors in each bedroom and in the living room that open to the seaside porch. Relaxingly listen to the lapping waves and enjoy the ocean air; the open doors makes for great nights.

Seaside porch is great for eating out under the stars or watching the moon rise over of the water. It is also relaxing just to sit back and look out at the Caribbean Sea.

Star gaze and look for satellites high in the sky, or find constellations, as the skies are so clear. Binoculars provided.

About The Owner

Purchased this Sea Lodge from a lovely couple who have owned the unit since 1985. We enjoy beach life and snorkeling.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why The Owner chose North Shore

We had spent many years traveling to Mexico, but after having a child, wanted a safer place. We fell in love with the Cayman people, the beautiful water, snorkeling, and diving. The pristine beach and quiet location make for a great get a way that is just an hour from Miami and under three hours from Houston. The English speaking island is very clean with a low crime rate, no poverty and currency fixed to the US Dollar. The weather is great all year.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is the only 2 bedroom Sea Lodge that is directly beachfront. We're on the corner, so the beach feels very private!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Snorkeling around the island and here at the reef has been wonderful. Seen were nurse shark, turtles, rays, porcupine fish, and all of the beautiful fish! Thank you for the lovely week of relaxing family time. And thanks to Barbara for her wonderful help and assistance :)

Relaxing, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My mother, husband, and I stayed at this beautiful property for a 10-day vacation. The accommodations were perfect. We arrived to a clean and tidy house with all linens and bedding available. A master bedroom and bath for my mother and a master bedroom and bath for my husband and me are located on either side of a comfortable living room and kitchen area. Each section of the house has louvered double doors to the fully screened lanai that can be left open at night to catch the breezes. We snorkeled right off the beach in the rear of the property and where we saw turtles, sting ray, a variety of beautiful fish, and coral. Rum Point is a short 10-minute walk away along the road. It was delightful to stay on the quiet side of the island. Many days we took road trips to the south side and to seven mile beach to snorkel at other public beaches. The north side of Grand Cayman has many nice restaurants within 5 to 20 minutes, all of which are recommended.

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start by saying that I've never had a bad experience vacationing through VRBO. That said my stay at Searendipity was by far the best so far! (I've used VRBO eight times). I think the best way to do this is by bullet points.

* We spent a week there in July 2017, traveling on a father-daughter (18-year old) trip. The photos in the VRBO listing are accurate and describe things as they appear in reality. In fact, reality may even be better.

* The house itself was perfect. It was clean and well-stocked. For a week all we needed to buy was food.

* Location - great for seclusion, but within reach of all the fun activities on the island (the island is small so everything is within 40-50 minutes; restaurants nearby (recommend Kaibo at the tip of Rum Point). A small grocery nearby, but larger stores a bit further (maybe 25-30 minutes to a Fosters IGA near the airport or the one on the east end).

* Plenty of room with two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen, washer/dryer, and TWO large screened porches. A/C in each bedroom, three ceiling fans, and two large floor fans. (my only recommendation is to put a hammock on the beach-facing porch). The beach-facing porch was 20x20x20 and with a screened ceiling for star-watching.

* Right on the beach and 50-feet from the water. Always a breeze blowing through the house. The water offers good snorkeling close to shore. I read reviews that there was even better snorkeling further out toward the breakwater. Either way the water was clear and clean. It was a bit choppy when windy, but definitely calm enough for kids to swim.

* Very private and for the most part we had the beach to ourselves (and one sea turtle who made a nest on "our" beach). I'll note that it was July so it's not the busy season. But the whole area is nicely isolated from the resort/cruise ship part of the island.

* Walking distance (beach or road) or a 3-minute drive to Rum Point where you find restaurants, activities, etc.

There's much more I could say. This will be my first choice when I return.

Great ocean front experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The ocean breeze coming through and the view were great. We had a good time snorkeling and being away from it all. Classic Cayman charm.

Return to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at Searendipity and again we had a wonderful, relaxing time. The condo is very clean, has all the essentials you need and has a spectacular ocean views. The units are just one story so there is no one making noise upstairs. If you really want to get away and disconnect this is the place for you. I wish we could have stayed longer

You can swim at the beach in front of the unit but we love being a 2 minute drive from Rum Point . We also like staying at the condo because we can cook and eat in after a long day at the beach kayaking, swimming and wave boarding. However, there are also enough good restaurants close by such as Tukka, The Lighthouse, Over the Edge, Kurt’s and Kaibo. Miss Barbara, the person that manages the place, is very responsive and helpful if you need anything. We were very happy to meet the owner, Ed during this visit; he very thoughtfully brought us a bottle of wine.

We will definitely return again to this little piece of paradise.

Loved the place. Just what we wanted. Sun, snorkeling and right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Searendipity is perfect for 2 couples although we had it to ourselves. 2 bedrooms , 2 baths, perfect kitchen, small but well equipped, nice living area, 2 porches, one seaside 1 in the back in case the sea breeze is too much and it has clothes lines, perfect for drying all your wet stuff. We hardly left here because it was so nice. The snorkeling out front was awesome. It's a marine park so no taking anything which means coral, fish and shells galore to just see and appreciate. If you need total air conditioned environment this isn't for you but both bedrooms have air conditioning and all the windows open and there are ceiling fans in every room so we never even turned the air on. There was always a breeze coming through. It was perfect for us.

Peaceful, relaxing, small piece of heaven in the Cayman Islands!

  • 4 of 5

40 years ago, we were fortunate to be introduced to the Cayman Islands and start coming on a regular basis. As the years passed, the island and seven mile beach became more and more developed and crowded with tourists. Even though we continued to enjoy the snorkeling, water, and beaches, we missed the quiet and peacefulness of "the good old days." The sealodges at Cayman Kai were the answer! The north side of the island has developed at a much slower pace and continues to have all of the benefits of the beauty and peacefulness of the island without tge crowds. We loved the snorkeling at the reef right out in front of our cottage. The large screened-in-porch on the beach was the greatest part of the whole place and where we spent most of our time. We recommend the sea lodges to anyone who wants the beauty and peace of the Caymans without the crowds!
