About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Tremendous Snorkeling! 4BR/3.5BA Christmas Palms Villa sits directly oceanfront in Old Man Bay on the north coast. The villa offers luxurious interiors that are complemented by beautiful multi-windowed views, an oceanfront freshwater pool, and--of course--excellent snorkeling in the sparkling Caribbean waters. Many coral heads hosting schools of juvenile fish await you!

Christmas Palms has light, airy interiors and bedroom balconies that are designed to maximize the gorgeous ocean views; the large windows and glass doors flood the home with sunshine all year.

Christmas Palms Notable Features:
-The property includes the sandier beach lot next door to the east that has a small area for private sunbathing. Either way, every marine environment in the Caribbean requires foot protection (swim fins or pool shoes).
-There is excellent snorkeling directly behind the villa as well as for another 500 yards to the east behind famous Connolly's Cove.
-As all beaches in Cayman are public, we also have 3 nearby resorts/clubs with barefoot swimming that are open to our guests. They also have watersports and serve meals and drinks.
-From the dining room, living room and kitchen, you can step directly onto seaside decks or screened porches to enjoy the ocean air while you dine, lounge, or just have a cocktail after a day of sun and surf.
-The large, modern kitchen offers all the standard amenities, dishware, cookware, and cutlery.
-THREE (3) King Master Suites on the second floor each enjoy a wide ocean view and breeze. Each bedroom has its own screened porch or balcony overlooking the ocean.
-Twin bedroom on the first floor with adjacent half bathroom opens directly to the oceanfront screened porch.
-Pull-out couch in living area for children or smaller adults
-Christmas Palms now has (2) kayaks and is only half a mile from Grand Cayman's newest attraction; Cayman Crystal Caves. 10 minutes to the east are the resorts, grocery store, package store as well as some shopping and restaurants.
-Outdoor shower by the pool area as well as masonry charcoal grill.
-Central A/C
-Free WiFi
-Linens, towels and beach towels provided.
-Plenty of off-street parking.
-There is no home to the east of Christmas Palms, so our guests do enjoy their privacy. We have a new neighbor to the east that just finished construction January 2017.

Accommodates up to 10 people (8 adults max.); Excellent 3-couple villa and twins can be made up as a king bed for a 4th couple. (3) King Suites, (1) Twin Bedroom.

Car: Recommended

With a central location on the island…the homes in Old Man Bay offer perhaps the best shore diving and snorkeling on the entire island. The beaches are mostly sand, but also can be have some pebbly beaches as well as natural rock formations . Either way, with the varied marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The beaches here offer great seashell collecting and turtle sightings in summer! Old Man Bay is only 5 minutes from (2) large resorts in the east end ( and ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a Coffee/pastry shop!).

Heading west, "Kurt's Korner" is a local restaurant within walking distance; and then "Over the Edge" restaurant is about one mile away. They serve breakfast, lunch AND dinner and offer a varied menu that offers a value choice. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. You are also only 5-10 minutes to the best SCUBA diving operations/dive sites on the entire island. and are two of the best. About 15 minutes to the west of Old Man Bay is the famous Rum Point Club…with watersports, restaurant, bar, gift shop, grill and a barefoot beach with table service. Here is where the catamaran departs for stingray sandbar/snorkeling tours.

Grand Cayman Villas

About: I bought the land in 2003 in a hormonal post divorce moment, and despite Hurricane Ivan, which devastated the island of Grand Cayman one year later in 2004, I never once regretted the decision. I have always dreamed of building a beautiful triple aspect house on the ocean. So I designed Christmas Palms (it started life on the back of an envelope) and finally - after much planning, begging and borrowing - managed to break ground in May 2009. This picture was taken at Over the Edge restaurant in Northside, Grand Cayman, just after (with equanimity and no regrets all round) I had ceremoniously thrown my wedding ring into the sea!

Why North Side, Cayman Islands:
It is quiet, private and beautiful up here on the North Coast of Grand Cayman. It is well away from the noise of Seven Mile Beach, yet within easy distance of the supermarket, diving facilities, trips to stingray city, botanic park and at least half a dozen excellent restaurants, including The Lighthouse and the fine dining at Rum Point. The best of both worlds.
