Cayman Sands is an oceanfront villa in Old Man Bay along the north coast. This popular villa is one of only 2-3 homes that offer shore scuba-diving off the famous Cayman Wall. With an open, one-story design, Cayman Sands offers guests an intimate experience across 4,000 sq ft. of living space, plus a one bedroom guest cottage.
The main house features 4 bedroom suites (king, queen, 2 twin beds, and 2 twin bunk beds) with ensuite baths that have been completely re-tiled and renovated. Both oceanfront suites have french doors that open up onto the screened pool atrium and sun deck. Cayman Sands was thoughtfully designed to be opened up on cool winter nights when A/C isn't necessary.
The oceanfront freshwater pool is protected by a screened atrium keeping local wildlife and insects at bay from ruining your stay. Optional pool heat is available in the winter months for an additional surcharge. The pool atrium comes furnished with a sectional sofa and dining table perfect for evening cocktails or outdoor dining.
The view of the large sandy beach is framed by the two wings of the house, an oceanfront gazebo, and two hammocks ideal for long afternoons relaxing with a book or simply enjoying the views.
An oceanfront vaulted greatroom floods the villa with natural light and stunning views through 30 feet of sliding glass doors. A recently upgraded kitchen offers all the modern appliances you would expect, as well as dishware, cookware, and cutlery. The living area is furnished with a wall-mounted flat screen TV, plush couches, and a sleeper sofa for small children only.
The guest cottage features a queen master suite with kitchenette, screened porch, and a second-story balcony. The guest cottage is NEVER rented separately to unrelated guests during your stay--it is there if you need it.

This property is fantastic. Well stocked and large rooms. GREAT!
The Andersen, Matson & McWilliams' families just returned from our Cayman vacation. Here are the words everyone used to describe the time we had on Grand Cayman and at the Cayman Sands. AMAZING, AWESOME, SPECTACULAR and the BEST vacation ever. Our party consisted of 12 people ranging from 5-74 and we had more than enough room to spread out and enjoy all this house had to offer. The kitchen was fully stocked with more than enough to accommodate a family of this size. The only thing that would have been a great addition to the kitchen was a slow cooker/crock pot so that you could make your meal in the morning and then play all day and come back to a delicious hot meal ready to eat.
Truthfully, this house exceeded our expectation in all ways...it truly was PERFECT!
If you have a large family and want to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the North Shore on Grand Cayman then Cayman Sands is the place for you.
This house was amazing. We had 13 people in our group. The ages ranged from 2-60. We all loved it. Plenty of room for everyone sleeping, eating , visiting and playing games.There is a pool that is screened in and that was a great place to relax. The house has its own private sandy beach. Some enjoyed sitting in the covered cabana area. You do need sturdy sandals or water shoes for there is lots of broken shells and coral. We did the stingray trip, bioluminescent kayak tour and had Lindsay come to the house for a yoga lesson. This part of the island is definitely quieter, but you still have some good restaurant choices as well as a couple of small grocery stores. The kitchen is well stocked so we did make dinner at the house a few times.
Our favorite beach was Rum Point. It has free beach chairs, hammocks, an area for ordering food and drink , bathrooms and lots of shade. Our group loves the beach but we don’t last long if there is no shade.
We actually got bumped from St. Thomas because of the hurricane, but we were not disappointed at all. We had a great vacation!
We are so happy you had a nice vacation. Many vacationers were displaced by the hurricanes this season (happened to Grand Cayman in 2004). While we ache for our Caribbean neighbors, we are happy we were able to help so many families salvage their precious vacation time.

My parents had a condo on seven mile beach when we were young. This year my parents wanted to return to Grand Cayman. I researched for what seemed months and landed at Cayman Sands. My Dad has a very tough time getting around so it was important to have assistance bars in the bathroom and shower. Cayman Sands even has a dock/boardwalk to get out to the gazebo without having to walk on sand. He sat out there for hours watching the waves come in. It was fantastic to have all 11 of us all under the same roof (we did rent the guesthouse as well). Very clean and recently painted - lots of pool toys and kitchen has every utensil you would ever need! Best mattresses in a rental I have ever experienced as well as top notch linens and bedding. My kids missed school for two weeks to make this trip happen but the internet kept them working on their math facts while out. It was wonderful to be able to get my parents down to Cayman and have a home that they were comfortable in. Thank you to the owners for thinking about disabilities! It was a trip we will not forget and I hope to come back with my children again.
We are so glad you had a memorable stay at Cayman Sands. The owner takes pride in the home and maintains throughout the year. Cayman Sands was designed for guests with physical limitations.
Please come back soon!

Loved Cayman Sands!
We've rented a fair number of houses in the Caribbean, and by far, Cayman Sands was the best. Great pool, awesome beach and the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a rental property. Maintenance on beach/ocean-front properties is always a challenge, but the house/property were impeccable. Layout of the house was perfect for our 2 families. Everyone had a great time. We did 3 shore dives from the beach - great reefs (Julie's wall and Babylon). The only thing I would change about the house is that the sheer curtains in the bedrooms let in a LOT of light (if one group stays up and hangs by the pool or in the living area or when the sun rises at 6 am). We hung some of our dark dive towels which helped, but black-out curtains would be a great addition.
Took a family vacation with 11 adults and 3 children ranging in age from 2 to 82 years-old. Wonderful house with pool and private beach. It is located well off the beaten path. If you are looking for activities and night life in the city or on Seven Mile Beach then plan on taking a long drive. The house is located at least 45 minutes from the airport and busy shopping and dining areas. However, this house was perfect for our family. We saw a total of 8 people the entire week. Not 8 people on the beach but from the beach looking in all directions. The enclosed pool and sitting area, the tiled porch deck and the gazebo were wonderful for relaxing and gathering. There were pool toys and ample lounge chairs. There were two booster chairs for the children and a separate ice maker in the laundry room. There were two newer ocean kayaks with seat backs, paddles and life jackets. There was a new charcoal grill available. The pool depth goes from 3 to 6 feet with corner steps and a ledge which runs the length of the shallow end for children. The yard is all sand but the beach is not. Aqua shoes are a MUST. There were 10 pair of aqua shoes at the house ranging from child to adult sizes. The beach is rock, shells and coral. It can be difficult walking out into the surf navigating the rock ledges and coral. But this also provided amazing snorkeling less than 100 yards from the shore. We have chartered snorkeling excursions on other islands that could not match the experiences right off this house's shoreline. The separate cottage was a nice get away for my daughter and son-in-law who have not yet experienced the chaos of raising young children. There was a crib in one of the rooms in lieu of the listed single bed. The sleeper sofa was comfortable but located in the living room. It works much better in the spacious King or Queen rooms. There is one TV in the main house and one TV in the cottage. No TVs are in the bedrooms which was fine with us. There are grocery, water-sport, and liquor stores only 5 miles to the East -- an easy drive (stay on the LEFT side). We rented 2 vans which we used for various day trips to other parts of the island. Check your cell phone service plan. We planned to use the GPS on our phones but only two of us had service. Consider renting a GPS when you rent your vehicle. This is an amazing house in a scenic remote paradise location. It worked perfectly for our family vacation and all were delighted with the experience.
Best family vacation ever!!!
This house is perfect for a large group. We are a three generation family of 14 people ranging in age from 10 months old to 63 years old. The cottage was very convenient for the baby and parents and the layout of the main house gave everyone privacy plus room for all family time. The living areas allowed plenty of room for all of us to gather, play games, hang out, eat, and have fun together. The covered pool gave us a respite from the sun in the afternoons and away from bugs in the evening. The kitchen is well appointed--we all love to cook--the kitchen had everything and more!
Cayman Sands is convenient to everything on the Island. You cannot beat the privacy of this beautiful home, the exquisite view of the ocean, and the beach all to yourself everyday! When we went to 7 mile beach for a day, our 8 year old grandson exclaimed, "When can we go back to our own beach. This place is crowded with too many people!"
This side of the island is quiet, calm, easy going, and very limited commercial vendors--which we loved.
We stayed for two weeks and can't wait to return to Cayman Sands.
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 natural rock formations too. 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 (www.morritts.com and www.thereef.com ) 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. www.oceanfrontiers.com and www.tortugadivers.com 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.
