About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Beautiful beachfront condominium on Seven Mile Beach is perfect for a couples' getaway or for a family vacation. 3 bedroom unit sleeps up to 8 people in 1440 sq ft and is fully equipped with all kitchenware and linens, including beach towels. Heavenly Caribbean views, especially from the living room. Unit has its own washer/dryer and large flat screen TV in master bedroom (with king bed) as well as second TV in living room. Second bedroom with queen bed and bunk beds sleeps up to 4. Third bedroom has king size bed.

Located on the ground floor at Tamarind Bay, which is next to the Marriott Hotel and its conveniences, including access to water sports rentals (such as jet skis and kayaks) and a beachfront bar. Tamarind Bay has a beautiful private beach and is in walking distance to shops and downtown Georgetown. Swimming pool in this private complex is perfect for the kids when they tire of chasing fish in the sea out front! Barbecue around the pool in a complex that includes lunch tables within gazebos and all the lounge chairs you'll need. The best kept secret is the management at Tamarind Bay, whose friendliness and helpfulness is renowned throughout Grand Cayman.

If you've never been to Cayman, please go. The Caribbean here is crystal clear and always warm, with assorted fish, turtles, and rays swimming right off Seven Mile Beach. The people are helpful and friendly and this is the safest place we've ever visited; it's like a step back in time. A paradise for children of all ages.

About Susan

California couple has owned and vacationed here with their children for 14 years. Our children are now college-age, but we and they still return to this second home as often as possible. This is the perfect place for quality family time, with all your needs supplied. We fell in love with Grand Cayman the first time we visited in 1994 and bought our place there as soon as we could afford it. We have maintained and improved it over time, adding a second TV in the master bedroom and new mattresses, etc. We love to hear comments from our guests and always respond to suggestions for improvement. We love to use it ourselves, but when we can't, we enjoy sharing this unit with other families.

Susan purchased this condo in 1996

Why Susan chose Grand Cayman

We fell in love with Grand Cayman when we first visited there when our daughters were 3 and 5. Shortly after renting a car at the airport, my husband pulled the car over to review an island map, as he was unsure if we were headed the right way. Almost immediately, a taxi pulled up behind us and the driver got out of her van to ask my husband if 'she could be of assistance in helping him with directions.' She told us to follow her and directed us to our rental condominium. She wasn't paid; she just saw we needed help, so she helped us. That's pretty common in Cayman and set the tone for a spectacular vacation of swimming, sunning, snorkeling, and great restaurants. Our kids LOVED it. We returned 2 yrs later and stayed at another complex on Seven mile Beach with a particularly great 2 bedroom plus den oceanfront layout. Again, we loved it. We scanned real estate listings at the end of that vacation and when we saw a unit in another complex with the same layout (by the same architect) at a reasonable price, we bought it. We've enjoyed it and have vacationed there annually since then.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is fully equipped at the highest level. It was recently completely remodeled and refurnished, including designer furniture and all new kitchenware and linens. We have flat screen high def TVs in the living room, master bedroom, and third bedroom. We provide games, cards, books, music, and DVDs for our guests. Although luxurious, our place is 'Caribbean comfortable' where guests can enjoy slouching on any sofa with their shoes off while staring at the beautiful sea outside.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to stay at Tamarind Bay properties. The floor plan for each unit is the same. We love the location on Seven Mile Beach as it is close to restaurants, buses, taxis, and into Georgetown. However, the best part is that we do not have hardly any foot traffic in front of us on the beach. It is almost like having your own private beach. Lots of umbrellas and lounge chairs, beautiful fresh water pool and this unit is literally just about 25 yards to the beach! Sand and water is pristine and being in a unit on the bottom floor literally steps from the beach was awesome!

Property owners were wonderful to work with and Kathy the Property Manager is extremely kind and helpful. Units are extremely clean, wonderfully furnished condo and kitchen, great wifi connection, washer/dryer, and extremely comfortable beds. Snorkeling in front of property is amazing as well. We loved this property and really have enjoyed both of the units that we rented at Tamarind Bay. We had 6 people and slept comfortably and had a couple join us for a few nights and it was comfortable with 8 as well. This unit has 2 king beds in separate bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom has a queen and a set of bunk beds. If you are looking for a lovely vacation, it is hard to beat this one!

Fabulous condo - only 40 Steps from Porch to Seven Mile Beach! (+10 more to the Caribbean Sea)!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place so much the first time we visited, that we quickly rebooked and had our second family holiday here over the Easter break. The condo is very well located, right on the beach, close to town and all amenities. There is plenty to do over a two week break and we spent a lot of time alternating between the pool and the sea. There is great snorkelling right off the beach and our 3 children (aged 8-13) all joined us exploring the marine life literally straight off the beach. Self catering is a great and cost effective way to holiday in Cayman as you can pick and choose when to eat in and when to eat out. We BBQ'd most evenings and ate outside, usually with the beach to ourselves, with a truly priceless view of the sunsets, which seem to be different every evening. The condo is truly a three bedroom condo, with the den being completely closed off, containing a king size bed. We were pleased with our choice of ground-floor, which means you are literally a few steps from the pool and the beach, with a good view of each from inside. We took a video of the walk from the condo to the beach so that we can enjoy how close it all is, now that we are back in the cold of the UK! The owners and the property manager are most helpful and friendly, as is the groundskeeper, who works away constantly to keep the property in pristine condition.

Here's a list of things we did while there:

Turtle Farm (full day out)

Rum Point by car / tour of island (full day out)

Boat charter to Rum Point, Sandbar (to walk in waist deep water with stingrays)

Next door but one along the beach is the Marriott, where you can book watersport activities such as diving, banana boat, jet skis, cruises, snorkelling trips, parascending etc etc

Submarine adventure

Caymana Bay

Hell

Visit several craft markets

Drink coconut milk from freshly opened coconut

Crystal Caves and nature trail - newly opened attraction, very interesting

... there was more available.

Fabulous holiday, fabulous condo, completely loved it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us (3 adults and 4 kids) stayed in this ground floor unit for 7 days. The location was perfect! The kids loved going from the beach to the pool effortlessly which made the adults very happy. The ocean was amazing, and we all enjoyed snorkeling right off the beach. It was great to have the convenience of the Marriott nearby and we utilized some of their water sport rentals, but we were glad to be away from their very crowed beach. It was so nice to have the beach practically to ourselves at Tamarind Bay. We walked to numerous restaurants from the condo. We walked to the grocery store which was about a mile away. The groundskeeper Henry was super kind and so pleasant to be around. He even brought the kids a coconut one day and showed them how to open it. The kids were thrilled and brought him ice water to drink every chance they could. The unit for the price was outstanding and we were very pleased with our stay at Tamarind Bay. We can't wait to return and we would book this condo again.

Excellent condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 children aged 7 to 11 and we all had such a great time, we are looking forward to arranging another visit. We chose this complex and the specific condo after many hours of internet time researching everything available on Seven Mile Beach and this appeared to tick all the boxes - the research paid off because we were delighted with the whole experience. The reality was even better than the photographs and description on the websites. Highlights are - the proximity, constant views and sound of the Caribbean Sea, the proximity to the pool, the third bedroom (billed as a converted den) was as good as the other 2 bedrooms, making this a proper 3 bedroom condo, in our opinion, the facilities (e.g. several sturdy gas BBQs, kept clean for guest use, beach chairs, umbrellas, cabanas, even a selection of buckets and spades for the kids), the service (eg daily maid service, the friendly caretaker sweeps and cleans the beach and looks after the grounds to a very good standard), central location near to town and loads of other facilities and I could go on and on with positives. The owner and the property manager were both friendly and very efficient during the booking and the stay. The value for money was spot on, which we really appreciated. We also had other family staying in the complex, which added to the whole experience - a great place for an extended family holiday/reunion.

Grateful in Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, with three young adult children. We chose this unit based on price and proximity. We were not disappointed! The unit was even nicer than the pictures appeared and was extremely well stocked. The owner sent us information after booking that was spot on. A wonderful fruit/coffee basket welcomed us. We were on the first floor overlooking the pool and beach which was great for early morning coffee while the others slept in. Our daughter had to have knee surgery two weeks before we arrived, so the ground floor worked out well with her needs.

There were two bedrooms which slept six, and a study with a pull-out sofa bed that gave our son the privacy he preferred. The furniture was not fancy but homey and clean. The kitchen had everything we could hope for and a grill is right outside both doors for any grilling you might want to do. The wi-fi was appreciated by all and the televisions were very nice. We used the local phone to make multiple reservations during the week and the information pamphlets that Manager, Kathy, put together for us was very helpful. She was able to make suggestions and answer any questions we had. The condo Assoc. had a party to celebrate her 20 years of service the night we got there, and invited us to join in.

We were able to take part in the Resort Dive through Ambassador Dive, which was conveniently located right at the entrance to Tamarind Bay, and they shuttled us out to the marina for our dives. All equip needed was included. When we wished to rent snorkel equip for the week they suggested we purchase snorkel gear at Costuless (Governors Sq Mall), which is a big box store like sam's Club or Costco, without the membership. A set of snorkel/fins/mask were $50 US opposed to renting them for $16/day at Ambassador. Snorkeling was good right in front of our unit.

We did take advantage of the buses and taxis while we were there. To hail a taxi or a bus was quite easy. Go to the main road and start walking in the direction you want to go, they will beep twice as they come by and you put your hand out to hail them. Careful though, the buses and taxis look alike. 12 passenger vans, and the taxis have a small sign that says taxi. The buses are $2.00 Caymanian/$2.50 US per person each way, which actually made it about the same for a family of five to take a taxi to a restaurant close by at $13.00 US. A taxi for the five of us from the airport to Tamarind Bay was $30US. Enjoy!
