About Dr. Avrom

The Appleman family lives in Minneapolis and purchased Cayman Coast Escape 15 years ago. This is a $3,000,000 property. Living in Minnesota is a great reason to own a Caribbean paradise home to share with others.

Dr. Avrom Appleman and his three children are all certified scuba divers. As a family, they have snorkeled and dove dozens many time in their backyard. The clarity is over 110 feet, with multiple walls, starting at 65 feet, 85 feet, and then the world famous 6000 foot North Wall.

Dr. Avrom purchased this villa in 2000

Why Dr. Avrom chose West Bay

This is the only four bedroom home for rent near Seven Mile Beach. You live 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Georgetown, and five minutes from world famous Seven Mile Beach. The owners travel to Grand Cayman every few months to assure sure the property is kept in stellar condition-nothing is more frustrating than staying at property that is not perfectly maintained! The owners' daughter had her wedding reception Memorial Weekend, 2014, for over 100 guests. Her picture may be found on the cover of Caribbean Bride magazine.

What makes this villa unique

The Caribbean turquoise sunrises and sunsets can be viewed from the property. This is a full acre on 1000 feet of oceanfront. There is complete privacy, but your are not remote. You are not on busy Miami Beach! You are not on crowded Waikiki Beach! This is your own oceanfront compound-your own Caribbean getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at the Cayman Coast Escape. My husband and I traveled with two of our daughters, their husbands and our 11 month old grandchild. Yes, we did the tourist things-Stingray City, walking on Seven Mile Beach and snorkeling on Cemetary Beach and right off of this property. However the absolute best part of the vacation was just staying at the house. The accommodations were perfect! Everyone had their own space to retreat to, but the days were spent enjoying breakfast in the screened porch, lounging on the vast deck and splashing around in the inviting pool, nightly meals and games on the outdoor patio table while taking in gorgeous sunsets and listening to the waves tumbling in. That is what family memories are made from! When we had a question the owners/property manager responded immediately. That is something that doesn't always happen and we really appreciated that. We would highly recommend this property for your next vacation.

Owner's Response: Tom and Family, Thank you for your kind words. My wife, Mickey, and I have owned and rented CaymayCoastEscape for 18 years. We take pride in our 28 FIVE STAR REVIEWS and in sharing our family's personal home with over 800 guests. This is our Shangri-La. This is our peaceful sanctuary! We never, however, take previous guests' positive comments for granted. We constantly strive to make this one of your most memorable vacations of your life. When you arrived, we immediately contacted you to assure that everything is OK. Even while you were in Grand Cayman, during the week, we offered hints on our favorite restaurants, diving, snorkeling, and exciting places of interest. Mickey and I are excited. Why? We are going to Cayman in a few days. We constantly upgrade our villa and cottage. Each time-and I mean each time our family and friends have difficulty leaving. The Appleman family sincerely appreciates you booking our Caymanian villa and cottage. You and your family were wonderful guests. We look forward to your return.

Dive, dive, dive!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days at this perfect waterfront home. We came to GC for the diving and with this home it was everything we needed. Plenty of room, well appointed and terrific for easy shore diving off the backyard. This is our second time stay here and it's as good as we remember.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in the Grand Caymans and were very happy with Cayman Coast Escape. The property offered so much, such as having the ability to take a few steps and be in the ocean snorkeling; having plenty of space for our family; relaxing in the pool; eating our dinners on the screened in porch; spending every evening watching the sun set; and so much more. We traveled the entire island and were always happy to return to the peace and quiet of this property. We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful location and buildings but ocean swimming not convenient

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July/August. The property and the buildings are lovely and in great condition. There is indeed a lot of ocean front but we found that we had to drive to 7 mile beach to access a family friendly swimming area. This property's ocean access is precarious at best and only appropriate for adult swimmers or divers due to the high surf and slippery rocky access. The pool is nice but it was too warm to be refreshing, it being the height of summer. This would be great in the colder months and probably as a party house since there is plenty of room for entertaining. Internet service was shut off for a day due to an administrative error by the service provider. The owner was prompt in his attempts to restore the service but things move a bit slower on the islands and it was a day before service was restored, causing distress for some in our party. The owner was very conciliatory and offered recompense without prompting.

Wonderful stay in Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home and property! Pool was beautiful, and the sunsets were picture perfect. My husband and our girls snorkeled at night with underwater flashlights at the breakwater cove near the house. They saw many lobsters, fish, and urchins.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Such a pleasure meeting you, your husband, and warm family! I have talked to hundreds of guests, like you, over the telephone. It was coincidental and fortuitous that I was in Grand Cayman at the same time en route to the US from another country. It was fortunate to meet you face-to-face. The Appleman family appreciate you renting our home. Please come back again (you receive a 25% discount). -Mickey and Michael Appleman
