Keywords: Oceanview, 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms with 4 balconies offering 4 different views of torquoise-cyan-azure-cerulean Carribean Sea on semi-secluded Pappagallo Beach.
WANT A TRANQUIL GETAWAY: Located on a take-your-breath away sandy, semi-private, semi-secluded beach with a pier jutting out into the blue sea, where you can watch the sun rise or sun set - coffee or cocktails in hand and decide which color blue suits the description of the sea. Neighbouring is a National Park, home to the rare black parrot which lends its name to the beach (pappagallo is Italian translation for parrot). Within this oasis is a 5 kilometre walking/jogging trail where you can work up a sweat. Cool down with a swim and/or snorkel session off the pier and explore the beauty of another national park - a reef underwater filled with marine and coral life of many vibrabt colors - great underwater photography.
WANT SOME SERIOUS CHILL-OUT-TIME ... 20 steps from the condo will take you to the pool and Hot Tub ... 20 more will take you to a chaise longue under the shade of scattered coconut palm trees on the beach ... and another 20 will take you right to the edge of the beach where foamy waves will meet and greet and massage your feet.
WANT SOME CROWD ... YET STILL, this location is only 7 minutes away from the hustle-bustle or hubba-hubba of the busy 7 Mile Beach, 14 minutes to downtown Georgetown where designer shopping and jewellry stores galore await, and less than 20 minutes to airport - assuming you are driving.
LET YOUR SENSES SWAY with the surrounding beauty of this condo - each room opening onto a balcony with a panoramic view of tiered waves kissing sandy beach, palm fronds dancing in gentle breeze, with several shades of blue sea as a backdrop. The main floor has a recently refurbished, fully equipped kitchen with new cupboards and all the spices and condiments you need for cooking, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, wine bar.

About Dee Persand
Somewhat semi-retired, my husband and I enjoy travelling but always enjoy returning to our home in North America with children and grandchildren. This condo at Villas Pappagallo is a constant getaway from chilling winters for us. We did not consider renting until some friends visited and said 'This is such a cozy condo ... just perfect to chill out in sun, sea & sand.Why not share your paradise with others?'
Dee Persand purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Dee Persand chose West Bay
On my eleventh visit to the Cayman Island, I was an accidental tourist who ended up on Pappagallo Beach - my destination was actually the restaurant across the street. When I walked up the front entrance stairs, and through the archway past the acai berry trees , I fell in love ... with the big blue pool, palm trees dancing in the wind, beach and more beach and the confrontation of so many color of blues that layered the sea. I had worked and visited at least 10 other tropical islands but none had the immediate feel of rest and relaxation bundled with paradise. I would like to think I made a good choice. :)
What makes this Condo unique
My favorite thing is to watch the sun rise and the sun set. So I take my coffee out on the pier in the morning and watch different birds feed in the ocean. A long walk on the side of the beach that runs paralell with the nature reserve always make me light headed. Black parrots and blue iguanas live here but they don't like to be seen so it's fun trying to find them hiding. Harmless creatures. Reading under the shade of the palm trees,, swimming and snokelling in between is my idea of absolute chill out. Sunset is special - happy hour with coctails on the pier - it is amazing how much more beautiful the sunset appears!

Fantastic condo in a wonderful place. Exceeded our expectations!
This was our 5th time to the Grand Cayman so we are very familiar with the island however this was the first time with our children (14, 16, 18 and VERY active). We did not want the hotel life as we are very active and all scuba dive. Villa Pappagallo was absolutely wonderful and exceeded our expectations! Ocean views from every room and incredibly clean and well maintained. Unit is very well equipped for cooking, etc. It is steps away from the pool and a pristine, relaxing beach. Also right next door to one of the best restaurants on the island (and that is saying a lot) at Pappagallo. Being right next to Barkers Park was absolutely amazing and seeing the kiteboarders and horseback riding right on the beach. Extremely cozy, quiet and remote BUT only 5 minutes from town and anywhere you need to get to. If you are into long romantic walks on the beach away from crowds and having an ocean view steps away, this is your place.
Travelers should know that this area is off the beaten path and not in the hustle and bustle of 7 Mile Beach. We loved that and purposely sought this area out BUT you need to know that before you go to have proper expectations. Also understand that this is the north shore of the island and frequently gets great breezes and decent winds in excess of 20mph and the water is sometimes (actually most likely during parts of the year) rough so swimming and snorkeling is not exactly calm. That is part of the attraction of this area. The world famous north wall dive site are literally right in front of this unit. We actually drove (5 minutes) to the west side one day to swim and literally left after 15 minutes to come back to the unit because it was stifling hot with no breeze.
The only thing we wished for was a beach bar (on the beach) that we could walk to. We actually tried talking George (the property manager) into opening one!
All in all this was a fantastic stay and exceeded our expectations. The owner, Dee is also a wonderful, sweet and caring woman who will assist you with any questions.
We would definitely return!!
We had a lovely time at Villas Pappagallos. Dee was the consummate host and the condo was so well-stocked with anything we would have needed. We loved the location as it is right next to a preserve so we could walk/run each day in solitude. The condo complex has a lovely pool and a private beach with chairs. We found great restaurants all close to the condo with amazing fresh, local fish that we ate daily. We would definitely return again next year!
So happy to hear you enjoyed the beauty of Barkers National Park . Glad you had a great time.
Nice Comfortable Property in Cayman
A very nice, clean property in Cayman. Well apportioned, comfortable and private. Nice pool and beach area. You can snorkel off the beach. Not great for swimming in the ocean as there is a lot of coral. Very quiet and private away from all the crowds. For the price point, you can't go wrong. You will pay 2-3X on Seven Mile Beach. You will need a car as it is a little drive from all the restaurants and Seven Mile Beach, but you are 10-15 minutes from any place you would want to go. Easy to drive and access many spots.
Owner Couldn't Be Nicer
The property's owner, Dee, was extremely helpful and thoughtful. When we told her we may be bringing our 2-year-old son, she offered to have a pack-n-play and highchair at the condo for us to use. She was easy to communicate with, very responsive and accommodating.
It is always s pleasure to have warm guests . So glad that you enjoyed your visit.
This is a great location and a great condo. Dee, the owner, is very pleasant to work with and very helpful. We had an amazing time. Would highly recommend this location.
The condo is exactly as described. Great setting and very private. Everything you need is there and were it should be. For us it was close to activities like the Dolphin Swim and Ride out to StingRay City. Barkers beach is right down the road and has miles of secluded beachfront and perfect warm water lagoon for swimming and snorkeling. There is even a horseback riding concession that takes you out into the water right there on the beach. We are kiteboarders and this location allowed us to jump in the van and go to Barkers and ride for a while and be back for lunch in a matter of minutes. Barkers may be the best location in the Caribbean to kite! We went to the restaurant across the street twice and had some of the best food ever! Its also close to a few more great restaurants like The Calypso Grill and Alfrescos. Fosters, a full service grocery store, is about 10 min away where you can stock up on everything you could possibly need for your stay.
Dee the owner was so easy to work with and communicates quickly and answered all our questions. The place was very very clean and even provides beach towels and a cooler to make the stay more enjoyable. If you want shopping and nightlife its a 15 min drive to all the action on 7 mile beach. If you want the hustle and bustle of the Georgetown and tourist areas this is not the place for you. If you want to really relax and enjoy the perfect climate and scenery then it does not get much better than this!! A few days we had the pool to ourselves with just a few folks coming and going.
Loved our stay and would recommend it to friends and family alike!!!!!!!!!!!
I am always happy my when guests leave with good memories. Come again.
Become a certified diver with lessons from top notch diving schools. Equipment rental on 3 locations . Many diving sites nearby
