About Mark and Christie
We hope to share our Caribbean home with others who will love it as much as we do.
Why Mark and Christie chose Old Man Bay
It is located on the quiet side of the island and has all the characteristics we were looking for: 3 bedrooms and ocean front. It is well built and well maintained.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy feeling as comfortable as if we were home with the added luxury of being steps away from the Caribbean Sea and all that Grand Cayman has to offer.

After looking at several properties, narrowing it down to about 4 or 5 and then choosing this unit and paying to reserve it, we figured out it was the same place we stayed 9 years ago. There were different owners than now but everything else was the same except this time there were 6 of us and 4 first time. The unit is meant to hold 6 and it does so comfortably. There is a crib in the 3rd bedroom which decreases the space available in that room. It would be better if it was placed in the MB. It didn’t affect us but may someone else. The unit was clean and ready for use when we arrived. There is a working elevator which makes taking your luggage up easier.
If you are staying anywhere on the island other than Seven Mile Beach area you will need a car. So if you are renting a car you should consider staying here. Out of the way on the north side but near enough to Rum Point, grocery store, dive shops, restaurants and sights. There are 2 small places to eat within walking distance that serve great food for a surprisingly affordable price.
Other parts of the island are a moderate drive away.
The unit has a washer/dryer. AC works well. Owner does not want temp set lower than 74 but that is low enough to keep the unit more than comfortable.
The outside property is well kept. There is a sandy beach that is great for sitting in the sun or shade. The rocky shore is great for older kids to explore. The little lagoon is nice but is not much for anything except ambiance. The pool is well maintained. There are a bunch of beach chaise loungers but some of them are a little tired and used. There was never a time the beach was crowded or there wasn’t a chair to use. There is no way to enter the water on this beach besides the lagoon. Too rocky with waves and current.
There is a grill of sorts. It’s actually a smoker grill. We used an aluminum roasting pan on a support bed to get the coals closer to the grill and it worked fine.
If we ever did another trip to G.C. we wouldn’t hesitate to come back to On the Bay condos. It’s worth every $ we spent to stay here.
Thank you for your kind words. Our goal is to help create memorable, wonderful experiences for our guests. Seeing your comments makes us happy that we were able to provide the opportunity for you and your friends to experience it.
We look forward to having you stay with us again!

Wonderful Stay at a Great Condo
We had a fantastic time. This Condo is located on the more quiet, secluded North side of the Island which was perfect for us. We had three adult couples in our group who enjoyed lounging here by the pool, preparing our own meals and taking day trips in our rental van around the Island. The condo could not have been more perfect for us. We all had our own bedroom and bathroom and the living room and dining room were very spacious. From our experience traveling, and VRBOing in the Caribbean, this unit is definitely a 5-Star Condo, with waterfront views, easy access to the pool, a well stocked kitchen, and all the conveniences of home. It's location is convenient to all of the major attractions. Communications with our host were also excellent. We are already planning our return trip for next year.
Our goal is to create wonderful memories for families and friends. We are so happy you had a great time staying at our Cayman Paradise ideally located for you to enjoy the full Caribbean experience.
Our condo is always open to you and we look forward to having you come stay with us again.

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at On the Bay! The condo was very clean and felt like home. The view was beautiful. The weather during our stay wasn't the best, but we enjoyed coming home at the end of the day to relax at the condo. They had cards and dominoes which we played in the evenings! We used some snorkel gear from the condo to swim in the lagoon out front. Even with waves crashing behind the sea wall, we were able to snorkel and swim in our own lagoon. There were quite a few fish varieties! This option would be great if you are traveling with children, but we enjoyed it too! Unfortunately, the windy weather may have brought in a few trash items from the ocean so I would encourage the condo owners to have the management clean the bottom of the lagoon on occasion so as to keep the snorkeling area looking good. The condo needs a better can opener, but the manager said she would take care of it. We didn't find any beach chairs in the condo, and this would have been nice. Unfortunately, I didn't want to bother the manager and when we ran into her at the end of the stay she said they do have beach chairs....you just need to request them! oh well!! At the condo there is plenty of seating, but if you are going to check out the multitude of beaches (and you should!) definitely bring a chair (if you're older like us it is a must). There is air conditioning, but it still felt a little warm at times. It was windy and we would have opened the slider onto the porch, but there was no screen door (the one panel there didn't go across the opening) But it was a minor issue for us! The condo is located on the north side of the island and it is definitely quiet which is what we wanted. It was close to Rum Point and Starfish Point. It is a 40 minute trip to the west side of the island where 7 mile beach, and the turtle center are, but the drive is pleasant. The condo is also located right near the Cayman caverns and the Botanical Gardens. We enjoyed these side trips. There is also a Fosters Mini Mart located 7 minutes from the condo and a liquor store in the same plaza (I think it was Moritts plaza). This was handy! The attractions are $$ but since the weather wasn't great they were worth it. All the islanders were friendly and we felt so safe. We would recommend this condo to others. Book your stay and enjoy On the Bay!
Great location for home base while enjoying this wonderful island
Loved this condo unit! Stayed here over Christmas/New Year with my family of four (includes two teenagers). Our favorite things:
1. The view in the photo is exactly what I saw every morning while enjoying breakfast. It is really that close and that perfect.
2. There were only 12 units in the complex - we never had to share the beach or pool, it was like we had our own place!
3. Lots of space inside so we didn't get on each other's nerves. The teens were happy to each have their own bedroom and bathroom. I was thrilled to not have to share a bathroom with either of them. We saved money by making breakfast and some other meals in the condo - they had all appliances and dishes we needed.
4. It was nice to stay away from the activity of town & 7 Mile Beach, but we could easily drive there.
5. Easy and close access to everything on the island. A car is important here but everything is easy to access and there is no traffic on this part of the island. Beautiful sunrise 10 minutes to the east (Colliers Beach), perfect sunsets 10 minutes to the west (Rum Point).
6. The sheltered lagoon in front protected us from the "Christmas Winds" and waves they brought. My teens enjoyed snorkeling right in the lagoon (in addition to everywhere else on the island). Tip: we bought snorkels & masks from Amazon and brought with us. Kids used them every day. They also sell them at Rum Point, but you will pay more.
7. Mark was really helpful with getting info to us and patient with my questions leading up to the trip.
All in all, great experience, and I would love to stay here again. This would work really well for 3 couples or a family with more kids since there is so much space. Wishing now that we were back again...
So happy that everyone had an awesome during your stay at On The Bay and try our best to provide lifelong memories for you and your family to enjoy!
Come back anytime,
Mark and Christie
Great time in Cayman!
This condo was wonderful - clean, roomy and away from the crowds on Seven Mile Beach. It has a private beachfront and small cove that's perfect for families or couples wanting to relax. Rum Point is 5-10 minutes away - great snorkeling and food and drink are easily available. There are wonderful restaurants near the condo or you have the option of cooking dinner at home. The drive to Georgetown is very manageable.
We're always happy to hear from our guests. The North Side has the best of both worlds - awesome that your family was able to completely relax and enjoy it.
Fantastic condo on the quieter North side of the Island
Our stay at On the Bay was perfect. If you are looking for a quiet beach side condo view a great view this is the place.
The owners were very accommodating and answered all our questions and genuinely want you to enjoy your stay.
Dining options in the Island are great (albeit a little pricey compared to US). The food was great close to this condo. We enjoyed Tukka and the Italian Kitchen both a short 10 minute drive away.
Rum Point was fun as well. Just try to hit it when the cruise ship crowd is not there. We were at Rum Point when that crowd was there. After 3 o'clock they all had to leave and we basically had the place to ourselves.
Fat Fish Adventures took us out for a 4 hour cruise - Stingray City - Snorkelling over a reef - Starfish beach all were a great time. Ask for Captain Pete.
Back to the condo - sitting at the pool as the waves roll in and the wind blows through the palm trees. Really what could be better???
The view from the patio of this unit is great and like other reviews have stated you sometimes feel like you are the only people on the property. On the Bay probably has only a dozen units so it is not crowded. Condo has everything you could want and wifi is solid in case you have to stay connected.
If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place.
We loved having you stay with us and enjoy our little place in paradise. There's so much to do on the North Side, yet very relaxing too.
Look forward to having you stay with us in the future!
Find the serenity of the North Side on Grand Cayman at Paradise On the Bay! Near world famous dive sites and Rum Point. Tranquility on the Caribbean Sea at its best!
