ALL THIS - AND MORE = YOUR MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY
This is our second home, with each condo being an integral part of our past, present - and future.
We take great pride in introducing & guiding our guests with a personalised Welcome Letter + Cayman Attractions Binder to enhance your Cayman experience with the best info possible.
.....including insider information regarding Cayman features, attractions and amenities;
mobile phones for your use anywhere on Island; discounted car rentals and much, much more!
Why pay more for a small, cramped hotel room???
...when you can have your very own private, spacious condominium with all amenities for far less?
Bring your family or easily share TurtleFish Haven and/or HoneyMoon Haven with another couple.
We guarantee enough space and activity to entertain and tire out even the most energetic of youngsters!
LOCATION! CONVENIENCE! COMFORT!
We are the single MOST DESIRABLE LOCATION on Grand Cayman: we are at the center of pristine GALLEON BEACH between the Ritz-Carlton & Westin Resort. No cluttered beach, just a wide expanse of sand for you to enjoy. They argue over who has the most central location and most sand on Seven Mile Beach… our answer: YES!
We now offer TWO outstanding condo units.... HoneyMoon Haven is our spectacular OceanFront condo that hangs right over the beach - which is so close to our balcony that you can actually hear the water lapping at the shore;
TurtleFish Haven is set back conveniently on the ground floor with a large double patio - even as a less expensive OceanView condo you have direct access across our lawn to our incomparable beach. Both HoneyMoon and TurtleFish Havens feature an exceptional level of privacy along with OceanFront/View. And both have the largest interior space in our complex due to our extensive remodeling.
Until we can get to the necessary task of adding an additional listing, we will offer both from this page, with outstanding discounted prices on both and the same unexcelled service and information source to make your vacation the very best you've ever had. Our advertised price will be for OceanView TurtleFish Haven - our OceanFront HoneyMoon Haven costs US$72 (+CI tourism tax=US$81.50) more each night for its premium location. We guarantee you will be as impressed with our Havens, our location and our service as our previous guests have been, as attested to by our VRBO reviews. So our calendar will not specifically reflect any given unit's availability.... Just call us to sort out which is available for any specific dates and which best meets your desired accommodation needs.
THE SINGULAR FEATURES OF OUR GROUNDFLOOR VILLA: with its unique 45-degree layout to afford maximum privacy along with stunning beach & sea views...plus our direct access to our naturally shaded beach!
CONVENIENCE? For virtually every need, just a short walk away from our complex to SIX shopping centers and over TWENTY restaurants! Plus: 2 full service Supermarkets, 2 Sports Bars, 5 Beverage Stores, 3 Health Spas, 4 Jewelers, 5 Realtors - even a frozen yogurt shoppe right across the road from us! Renting a car is definitely optional! But even that is easy with our discounted services from the largest agency on Island.
COMFORT? Our unique TurtleFish Haven offer AFFORDABLE LUXURY with the LARGEST TWO-BEDROOM configuration, providing a spacious environment appealing to the most discriminating taste. Eliminating interior walls & kitchen closet created our exclusive open floor plan living area. Double patios from both livingroom and bedroom to the lawn leading to the beach only enhances your indoor/outdoor access pleasure. You relax on light, comfortable rattan furniture and plush living room cushions next to a spacious eating area. We have three flat-screen TVs, WIFI, snorkeling gear and a full kitchen complement, from blender, toaster, microwave, ice maker to wine glasses and more.
Whether you are viewing the sea from the master suite super king bed, breakfasting on the patio or just lounging around in our unique Cayman rattan rockers - yes, the sea is visible right across our lawn and beach - you are guaranteed a stress-free and tranquil environment that refreshes your soul and renews your spirit. You can even blow-dry your hair whilst enjoying our tranquil ocean view.
We specialise in assisting our guests by answering every question before you arrive - so you can enjoy every precious minute of your time with us at either Haven.
Our TurtleFish location is on the largest courtyard lawn in our complex so you pay less even though you have direct beach views and access from our ground floor exits from both master suite and living room.
HoneyMoon Haven is the most private condo in the entire complex - no other unit is on either side or above you! Also constructed with an open interior and cathedral ceilings, the expansive atmosphere Is enhanced by our unique loft with a master suite like no other. Just ask us about our unique features! Two king beds grace this condo, and the view from the patio is unrivalled - ANYWHERE!
Of course both Havens have central air, are fully furnished and equipped for your stay, and are inspected and approved annually by The Cayman Islands Hotel Licensing Board. TurtleFish Haven also is DISABILITY ACCESSIBLE!!!
What more can you ask?
SIMPLY PUT, TurtleFish Haven AND HoneyMoon Haven are the very best value condos on all of Seven Mile Beach!
And we delight in making your visit even more friendly, comfortable & rewarding with our Welcoming Letter and Attractions Binder in the condo! INTRODUCTIONS to just about any local product or service offered on Island are available to our guests as well...we've been here for decades! This includes (but certainly not limited to) real property or business services info, how to do CUBA (Easy!) or exotic watersports!
BUT IF YOUR GOAL is to just spend a whole week relaxing in the shade of our Casuarinas whilst generating a marvelous tan on the broadest and deepest part of Seven Mile Beach… well, we offer that in abundance, on the most stunningly beautiful and protected section of pristine Seven Mile Beach.
ALL this make our Havens at Galleon Beach's centrally located beachfront a most memorable location for your best holiday ever!
And our SPECTACULAR and MEMORABLE signature sunsets come at no additional cost!

About the owner: * Not the newest, largest, most opulent nor most expensive complex, we chose this property for its unexcelled location, innate charm and understated beauty, remarkable convenience, accessibility, superb design, beautiful gardens and easiest access to the beach. *VILLAS OF THE GALLEON (VoG) to this day remain the best value for money on Seven Mile Beach compared with any of the 51 other condo properties along stunning SMB. *Having been completely renovated after Hurricane Ivan, we have the highest approval and return visit ratings of any Seven Mile Beach property! *We offer our guests the comfort of our friendly setting, convenience of our superior location, and our personal attention to your every holiday wish. *Working diligently to keep our costs under control, we pass savings on to our guests. *We respect our guests' privacy whilst being available to provide information and services as needed. *Having been a part of Caymanian community for so long, we have a wealth of knowledge as to where to go, what to do, and just how to maximize your Cayman experience. *We love and appreciate this Island culture; most of our friends are Caymanian. *Husband Bob-a former officer of Rotary International-is proudly active in local Rotary service projects on Island. We offer a special discount to ALL service club members (Uncle Warren was a Lions' Governor: same relationship!). Bob's brother also is a Rotary PDG. *Wife Ann Marie is a former Head Start programme supervisor and Early Childhood college instructor. An experienced property manager, she can be counted on for extensive knowledge of all products, crafts, services and the best buys here in Cayman. *If you want to economize and not rent a car, we provide helpful hints as to how to best explore the island and take full advantage of the public transit system. Public mini-buses (US$2.50 p/person) run every few minutes up and down West Bay Road from Turtle Farm & Hell to George Town, and are convenient and fun. *
Why the Owner Chose George Town, Cayman Islands:
*Viewing the sea from our master suite superking bed - and the living room! *Or just sit on our third floor balcony listening to the soothing sound of the sea lapping at the shore *Breakfast on the patio, then walking right onto the beach across the lawn *The shade of our lovely casuarina pines *Enjoying the antics of the ching-chings *Our very own rare banana orchid *Vibrant Gardens *Our true retreat from the cares of the world in a stress-free environment *For our daughters - a safe, world-class holiday location *Amenities & facilities are endless and oh-so-conveniently located near us! *Villas of the Galleon is on the finest part of the Beach, centrally located to just about any service or attraction you might desire whilst on holiday within easy walking distance *We are super fortunate in our choice of location *The center of the beach never diminishes: sand torn from the north end of the beach by Nor'wester storms is deposited on the south end, and vice versa... in either case, we generally gain sand from both storm directions *Snorkeling begins right off our shore *Only 350 yards up the beach in front of Governor’s House is Governor’s Reef - easily accessible to entire families, regardless of age *And Beachcomber Reef is 400 yards to the South *Other terrific snorkeling locations are just two miles up AND down the beach at Cemetery & Pageant Reefs *Up at Northwest Point we have the fascinating Turtle Farm complex which features gigantic tortoises, breeding facilities, and turtles of all ages+Visit the collection of Caymanian birds in the aviary *Fascinating Caymanian friends Is that enough? FOR A REALLY UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE? - even to engaging a luxurious Rolls-Royce from one friend, retired owner of one of the Island's most notable restaurants. As one of the Island's truly unique personalities he is a joy to know - can you imagine a more valuable honeymoon gift than HoneyMoon Haven or TurtleFish Haven as a special anniversary or birthday pleasure?
