THIS A IS NON-SMOKING ACCOMMODATION
Welcome to our condo owned by 2 couples, one from Calgary Alberta the other from Parker Colorado. We have been friends for years and share a passion for adventure. The 4 of us have been diving all over the world but we fell in love with Grand Cayman. We chose this destination primarily because it was a safe, friendly Caribbean Island with very little crime, English is the spoken language, and the island has a state of the art water purification system. This is our little piece of heaven!
Beric Evans purchased this condo in 2006
We chose to buy in the East End of the island because it gave us the opportunity to be away from it all. The condo is only steps away from the white sand beach and the clear sparkling turquoise sea is a great destination for anyone who loves to take in water sports or for those who want to soak up the sun. It offers poolside and beach front relaxation. Our condo offers close proximity to some of the best diving sites in the world and the finest snorkeling to be found anywhere right outside our doorstep. There are two excellent dive operators nearby, Ocean Frontiers and Tortuga Divers who offer a wide range of courses to suit all levels from beginner to advanced. There are over 260 top dive and snorkel sites on Grand Cayman and the East End has 55 amazing dive sites to choose from. Our condo is conveniently located in a full service resort containing 2 swimming pools, tennis courts, gym, spa, private beach and restaurant with bar and grill. The resort offers an extensive list of amenities and provides great activity options. The concierge will book a wide range of activities including water aerobics, volley ball, wind surfing, deep sea fishing, kayaking, sunset cruises, nature tours, and trips to world famous Sting Ray City. Other activities include The Turtle Farm, Swim with Dolphins and the nearby Botanical Gardens. This destination has something for everyone.
If you are looking for a secluded beach away from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown, then this condo is right for you. You can wake up to the sound of the surf at sunrise or sit on the veranda with a glass of wine over-looking the crystal blue waters. Escape to beachfront luxury for affordable prices. The condo has an open plan living and dining room with double glass doors that open onto a private veranda. Our unit has cheerful décor and features central AC, ceiling fans and spacious bedrooms. We have stocked the kitchen with dishes, utensils and cookware. We provide linens, pillows, blankets as well as towel sets for 2 full bathrooms and 6 beach towels.
We had a wonderful two-week stay in this two-bedroom unit. Unobstructed view every morning of the amazing array of azure sea colors. Very nice unit, great A/C, quiet, close to the pool, and just far enough from the restaurant to not hear or smell it, yet just beyond the pool. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries and has an on-island contact person as well.
The crew at White Sands Watersports, on the property, are amazing. A bunch of Australian expats really know how to supply fun/safe times with all the watersports at your front door.
The onsite restaurant has a wide selection of menu items, each of which we thought were as good as any restaurant on the island. Fresh, creative, tasty.
Sting Ray City is a must, but really, REALLY try to book the first 7am tour as it became chaos with cruiseline tourist right after we left. White Sands can set all that up for you. This should be a bucket list item for people visiting the item. It was sooooo cool.
Just down the coast is Tukka and a little further is Spotted Ray restaurants. Both are very, very good. Feed the tarpins at 5pm each night for another lifetime experience. Right on the water, large menu selections, and really good food.
Georgetown is a 30-40 minute drive, so I'd suggest putting together an itinerary of trying to knock out items with just one or two visits. Georgetown is rather small, so if you aren't a big shopper you could see it all in a few hours. The cruise ships deposit their tourist here, but all head back to the ship around 3pm. Yes there are fewer people then, but the shops also start to close.
Turtle Farm is a must see. We didn't do the dolphin thing right across the street from turtles.
Rum Point is very sleepy, nice place with a restaurant and Kaibo just down the block has a quiet harbor and good restaurant.
The Bioluminescent bay tour should also be on your list. We recommend a car as there is so much to see.
Food across the island was very good. Fresh, both seafood and beef options. Sun and sand. Sun and sand.
This is the ideal getaway! Situated on the quiet, east end of Grand Cayman, this condo is the perfect place for rest and relaxation, while having the comforts and convenience of a kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The condo is clean and has all the amenities needed for a fun and restful vacation. If quiet relaxation, away from the hustle-bustle of life is what you're looking for, this is the place. We truly enjoyed have the beach view and easy access to sit on the beach, enjoy the breeze and simply relax! We will definitely be back. The owner provided outstanding customer service and this place was everything we expected and more.
Our family enjoyed the use of this beautiful condo for the last 2.5 weeks. We have been to Grand Cayman many times and have stayed at the East End every time. This was our first stay at The Reef Resort/Castaway Cove. Everything in the listing description was accurate. The property was very clean and very well-maintained. We were in communication with the owner during the entire booking procedure and they were extremely timely with their replies to our questions. This resort offers many features. There is an on-site water sport company and we enjoyed a hobie-cat snorkeling experience with them which was wonderful and well priced. Our last night we ate at the on-site restaurant and enjoyed a musical dinner show with the famous Barefoot Man, whom we had heard much about for years but never experienced until this time. Having the only grocery store on the East End be literally steps from our condo was so perfect. In the same center we ate dinner at the Italian Kitchen which was delicious. We also purchased our alcohol at the liquor store next to the grocery store. Everything you could want within a short distance. There was an ice machine downstairs in the laundry facility. The best part of this vacation was the elevator for this complex. Most others do not offer elevators and snorkeling and travel luggage can be very cumbersome as we found out last year in another resort unit that was on the 3rd floor.
Our unit had A/C and so many great windows. The master bedroom and living room both look out over the beach and water. There is a huge balcony with patio furniture which we enjoyed each day. There is an additional master suite with a King size bed and ensuite bathroom. We will definitely rent this unit again.
While you don't need a car due to close proximity to amenities, it is recommended if you want to do sightseeing on any other part of the island, visit Rum Point or go to the Turtle Farm/Dolphin experience. We did understand that there is a bus that goes into Georgetown each day at 9am. We didn't use it, but, that was certainly nice to know.
We felt extremely fortunate that we found this listing on VRBO and were able to have one of our best Cayman vacations ever.
We enjoyed our mid-June Grand Cayman vacation very much, and this condo was perfect for a clean, comfortable "home away from home". The reservation and payment process worked very well, and the owners answered all our questions. We especially enjoyed the view (amazing sunrises!), beautiful beach, comfortable beds, furnished kitchen, TV, Wifi, cell phone, and plenty of brochures, magazines, and owner recommendations. Thanks for a wonderful experience...
This family vacation for Spring Break exceeded our expectations. Beric & Carolyn's condo is light, bright, clean, & so welcoming. It was our home away from home, while visiting Grand Cayman for a week. We loved that it was in a resort complex, which allowed us to use the amenities that The Wyndham Reef has to offer. From the pools, Tiki Bar, restaurant, jet ski rentals, & concierge, which was very helpful when making all of our excursion plans. Thanks to Beric's timely responses to my email inquiries, he helped me plan my trip in advance. With excellent restaurant suggestions as well as "things to do". The East End of the Island for us was perfect, since we wanted a relaxing vacation, without the potential wait for dinner reservations you could encounter, as well
as the hustle and bustle you could find, at 7 mile beach. We love to explore, so renting a car was not a problem for us. It enabled us to go to the Crystal caves, the Botanic Park, the Kayak bio-luminescent tour at Rum Point, & to check out the blow holes. We also did the "Stingray city" tour with White Sands tours at the resort. You had to drive to Kaibo to get to the boat, but it was well worth it. It was the 7am tour, which was an early start, but the cruise ships don't get to "stingray" city until around 9 am, so it was as if we were having a private tour with the Rays. It was amazing. We did go into Georgetown to go "Swim with the Dolphins", as well as visit the Turtle Farm. Both were life changing experiences for us. Upon Beric's recommendation, we went to the Fosters Supermarket, which was right by the airport upon arrival, & they definitely had the best prices. We ate most of our breakfast's and lunch's in the condo, & then ate dinner out. At 7 mile Beach, the "Sunset Grille" has the best fish tacos on the Island. On the East End we went to "The Lighthouse", "Tukka's", "Viviene's", & "Over the Edge" Restaurants. Every meal was delicious.
We can't wait to return to this "Piece of Paradise", and are so grateful to Beric & Carolyn's hospitality.
