It is beachfront property with a beautiful multicolored sea views that goes from turquoise to deep sapphire. It is protected by a coral reef 200 yards out from shore and provides great snorkeling opportunities for beginner and avid snorkelers alike. Swimming is great in the sparkling, crystal-clear water. Our private pristine beach has beautiful sand and is great for relaxing walks. It is also ideal for reading that new book you picked up while catching a few sun rays. This is very private and peaceful location to relax. So, if you are looking for that secluded island feeling...this is your place!

Attractively furnished, two bedroom unit with Queen size beds and sofa sleepers in each bedroom with a full bath. Our sea lodge sleeps up to 8 people max. There is 1 sofa sleeper in each bedroom that can accommodate 1 Adult or 2 Children.

Air-conditioning in both bedrooms, but not often needed with the nice tropical breezes and the wonderful louver doors that open to the seaside porch. Sit and relax with your favorite beverage enjoying the ocean breeze, as you listen to the peaceful sounds of the ocean lapping on the beach.

Seaside porch is great for eating out under the stars or watching the moon rise out of the water. It is also relaxing just to sit back relax and look out at the Caribbean Sea. Star gaze and look for satellites high in the sky, or find constellations, as the skies are so clear.

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Seaside Paradise #24 was just what we were looking for! We had stayed at another rental at Seaside 8 years ago which was not great but Chad's place was perfection! If you are looking for a place away from all it all w/your own private beach, this is the place! Just a 2-minute drive to Rum Point. We only encountered 3 other couples all week, so it was very quiet and relaxing. They didn’t want to snorkel b/c of the turtle grass but is short, easy to swim over and plenty of open areas to snorkel. Just out front is a small sea-wall and there is AMAZING sea life there, just steps from the beach.

The unit comes fully furnished. 2 full bedrooms, each w/full bath, queen bed, love-seat, dresser, closet, nightstand, and ac unit. The living room has a couch, love-seat, chair and Smart TV. The Kitchen has a table, sink, stove, and fridge. There is a front (6 person patio table), back patio along w/a washer and dryer for use and a charcoal grill. The patios have their own water with hose which is a huge plus. The kitchen has all utensils, glasses, plates, blender, toaster, even a cell if you don’t have an intl. plan on your cell. The unit has dedicated WIFI for your devices. Not much TV so the Smart TV is the way to go – Netflix, Hulu, etc.

Tips - make sure that any food that is left out, keep it in a sealed plastic bag. It's an island people :) Keep bread in the fridge and cereal, chips, etc. in plastic baggies. The kitchen/living room does not have AC but there are 4 doors and 2 sets of louvered panels w/a nice breeze each day - leave them open, there is enough breeze to cool the rooms off but keep your bedrooms closed with the AC on. On arrival, we found items that came in handy: plenty of snorkel gear (fins/snorkels, bring a mask) & pool noodles. In the living room cabinets there is a huge stock of left over sunscreen (several diff. SPF levels), 6 beach towels, games, cards, plenty of books. In the fridge, is keep sunburn gel - keep it there b/c if you get burnt, you'll thank me & Chad later! No one was snorkeling b/c of turtle grass except us – don’t be scared. There is a rock wall right out front with many species of fish, it’s amazing!

It's about a 50-minute drive to Georgetown. If you don't want to go that far, there are plenty of restaurants within about 30 minutes. Favs are: Rum Point beach bar for lunch, Tukka, The Lighthouse & Over the Edge for lunch/dinner.

Thank you Chad, Amazing! ;-)

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay near Rum Point! Very quiet, beautiful views, excellent private beach, and a well cared for condo! Plenty of space, everything you need to have a great time! Minutes away from Rum Point, where you can rent all kinds of toys. Highly recommend and will be coming back! Thank you!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented many condos in Grand Cayman over the years and this one is top of the list for location. Being only a couple of minutes away from Rum Point and right on the beach makes it hard to beat. Of the limited amount of time we actually spent at the condo, most of it was outside on the screened-in back porch with spectacular views of the ocean.

The complex is older, but the grounds are pristine and someone was on the beach every day to remove any seaweed from the sand.

Compared to other condos I've stayed in this one was a little tired and could benefit from some minor upgrades (especially in the kitchen, more counter top space would be a great addition) but the pros definitely outnumbered the cons.

The beds are comfortable, believe me this is NOT the norm, and having 2 queen beds in each room worked out well for us. The smart TV is an excellent idea, giving guests the ability to log into their own Netflix accounts. (Amazon didn't work as well) but remember to log out before you leave! Along with plenty of beach towels, coolers we could use to take to the beach, and extra snorkel gear and beach toys, it seems like the owners have pretty much covered everything.

Chad was a delight to book with, answering all my emails within a couple of hours.

By the second day of our trip we were already planning to return next year.

Private slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5

It wasn't quite what we were expecting at first but quickly turned into a quite wonderful vacation. Extremely private and it wasn't an inconvenience at all to drive back to Georgetown and 7 Mile beach.

The grocery stores were quite well stocked and not much different than what you see in the states. Very Americanized island as far as shopping goes.

Buy plenty of baggies to seal food in, as the humidity is constant but wonderful. Had an island breeze almost everyday and the air conditioners in the bedrooms were plenty as we spent most of everyday exploring and being outside anyway.

Owner nice, place is fair and snorkelling better elsewhere.

  • 3 of 5

The place was fine for the week but a few things to note. Wifi was down but neighbor got it working, no soap or shampoo. If over 4 people, not Great as the sofa in bedroom made it too crowded and we put mattress in living room to sleep but had to move it everyday to have room to move around. The ocean was rough on this side and sea weed heavy. We ended up at Rum Point, East End and seven mile beach. Chet was very nice and the place works if you rent car and you are on a budget.

Food is expensive in Caymans. Both groceries and eating out.

Great view but the house has some serious issues.

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived the house had been well cleaned but...it wasn't really opened up. The doors, which are also the windows were all covered. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was either a freezing hurricane or off. We chose to open up everything and use the natural wind to cool and get fresh air. Also, there were not really any instructions. We had to experiment to get anything to work. Hints about how to keep the house clean during the week would have been nice. The beds need new sheets! The ones there are clean but so worn it felt like there was sand in the bed on the very first night. No shower curtains so the bathroom rugs got soaked. It was a good thing there were two bathrooms because we needed all the supplies from each.

Since the correspondence from the owner was all automated, we figured the place didn't get much TLC. The only reason we stayed here was because we planned this at the last minute, we wanted to be near friends who were staying up at Rum Point, and we are campers so we figured we could sleep anywhere. It was a good thing we weren't expecting much.

Owner's Response: Hello Anonymous, I am disappointed to hear of your sub-par stay in our vacation home. Your experience was not a "typical" one. I will do my best to address all of the issues you listed in your review. 1. The louvered doors are covered to keep the wind from blowing the sand in the unit when the unit is unoccupied. Our on-island Property Manager is supposed to make sure those are removed before our guests arrive. She obviously missed that and for that I am sorry for the inconvenience. 2. The air conditioners were functioning well to the best of my knowledge. The remotes can be difficult to understand and perhaps that was the issue. There are several settings that can be adjusted to accommodate your comfort level. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience. 3. As far as instructions go, there are only a couple of things that could require any specific instructions(the T.V. and Air Conditioners)... maybe it would be best if added those for guests. Thank you for the feed-forward. 4. Not sure what you mean by "hints to keep things clean throughout the week." Cleaning supplies and brooms were available to you. 5. We will buy new sheets based on your comments, but even a few grains of sand can make the bed feel scratchy. I can assure you ALL linens are removed, cleaned and/or replaced before each guest arrives. Thanks again for the feed-forward. 6. As for the shower-curtain issue you mentioned, the shower stall is mostly enclosed with a permanent doorway cut-out which does allow some water out onto the floor. If the water was soaking the floor then the shower nozzle must have been pointed towards the shower entrance...which I could see being an issue. 7. I can assure you that the correspondence with me is not automated. I respond to every inquiry and question personally. I will admit that living in Colorado and having a family with 2 full time working parents can make it difficult to attend to every little issue our vacation home has ...but it is incumbent upon me to make sure every guest happy, regardless of guest expectations. I will address each of these issues you mentioned and do my best to accommodate future guests. And I think future guests have you to thank for improving their future stays. Once again, my apologies for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. I strive for a 5-star review from each guest and if I do not succeed then I haven't done my best to make them happy. Sorry again for letting you down.
