Overview

About the property

The sea is just out your back door, beyond the beautiful pool. There's a small private beach, with world class diving and snorkelling past that (there is a pristine mini-wall right there, and the 'Big Wall' is a five minute swim from shore). One of the world's best beaches is a few minutes drive away, but you can escape the hustle and bustle that goes along with its popularity, whenever you want to. The views are lovely, rivalled only by the peace and quiet. It's relaxed, Caribbean, island vibes all round - oh, and one of the island's most famous restaurants is literally just next door...

-----

THE SPACE

A lovely, simple, ground floor, 2 bed 2 bath apartment with ocean views in West Bay on Grand Cayman Island. Easy access - no stairs.

You'd like to rent with us because you didn't come to the Caribbean to stay on the 7th floor of a hotel chain property, you don't want to pay for a "turn down service", and because you appreciate getting away from the noise and the loud music that goes along with 7 Mile Beach in the evenings (but don't worry, that world famous beach is just 5 mins away!).

The apartment has a very large living space, and its all open plan. The kitchen is large with stools and lots of bench space. There's a couch that seats 6 comfortably and a large dining table to match. The apartment is fully furnished - towels, linen, cutlery, pots, pans, everything.

5 steps out your back door is a beautiful pool and bbq area with plenty of deck chairs, and the sea is just beyond. And you're on the ground floor, so the whole pool area feels like its your own private space.

There's world class diving straight out the back, tanks and guides available on site, and a small private beach with day beds and chairs.

One of the island's most famous (and best) restaurants is next door, and some of Cayman's most famous attractions, including the Cayman Turtle Centre and the Dolphin Centre, are just as close.

And then there's everything else that Cayman has to offer you - which is all super close as well (its not the world's biggest island!).

My place will suit couples as well as families - there's even a selection of pool toys to keep children interested, and internet plus cable (with HBO) on the off chance that it rains.

Oh, and if you need anything while you're here, I live on the island, so I'll be only a short drive away if I can help make your stay any more wonderful.

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

West Bay is where Cayman comes alive. Seven Mile Beach stretches right up the western coast of the island, but the hotel chains peter out and are replaced by the things you really came to the caribbean to see - little streets, little shops and stalls, bright colours - the closer you get the more you'll really fell like you've "arrived".

The road that leads you to our place hugs the ocean - you'll never get lost if you follow the ocean!

The diving in West Bay is phenomenal, and its right at your doorstep. And while we don't have ALL the restaurants, we have the best restaurants, and the best of those peaceful bars with ocean views that you can afford to spend your evenings in.

And the size of the island means that while you'll feel like you've gotten away from it all - everything that Cayman has to offer you will never be more than a few minutes drive away.

GETTING AROUND

There's lots of parking. There's also a local bus service and some taxis, but nearly everyone who comes to Cayman rents a car. I can help you with that :)

About Grace True and Robert True

We're a young professional couple living in the Cayman Islands - we came like everyone else "just for an adventure for a couple of years" ... but life is amazing here and we can't seem to leave. We're originally from Australia.

Grace True and Robert True purchased this condo in 2016

Why Grace True and Robert True chose World

We bought this property because to us it has absolutely everything we think you might want from a holiday escape, and none of the things you don't. The previous owners had run the condo as a lovely holiday rental for many years, and we want to carry on their good work.

This condo is easy to access, easy to keep clean, easy to relax in and easy to enjoy. The outlook to the ocean over the pool is spectacular, and the whole pool area with bbqs and easy chairs just feels like an extension of your own place. Its islandy, laid back, relaxed - exactly what you want for a caribbean holiday getaway, and as an added bonus, the diving out the back is world famous, as is the bar and restaurant right next door.

People often come to the Cayman Islands and spend $700 - $800 per night for a family of 4 to stay RIGHT on 7 mile beach, and I don't think they often get their money's worth. At the end of the day 7MB is no more than a couple of minutes away no matter where you are on this island, and in any case the island has much more to offer than just that strip of sand. And even if you were staying right on the beach for big $$$ you'd still want a car on the island, so why not save $500 a night and use your car to travel the 1 minute drive down the road to get to the beach? Thats our thinking anyway. We hope you come to love our island as much as we do, and that our little holiday escape condo helps that love affair on its way :)

What makes this condo unique

We think a ground floor condo with no stairs, with the pool and the ocean just there (feeling like its all yours), with the world class diving (tanks available for hire on site), a private beach and fully stocked with everything you can think of (cutlery, crockery and pots and pans all the way to snorkels, fins and pool toys) is pretty special.

Memories for a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Coconut Bay. Beautiful spacious condo. Great location on the island as well. My husband and I went with our 2 teenagers (16&18) and they also loved it. Thank you Grace and Robert True.

Great Property and Condo

  • 5 of 5

The True's 2 bedroom unit is great. Ground floor unit with a nice patio that overlooks the pool with the ocean just on the other side of the pool. They stayed in touch during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. The location in West Bay is wonderful with easy access to some great restaurants just down the street including the Crooked Conch which was amazing.

Great Condo, Great Pool, Great snorkeling on site- Sunsets every night!

  • 5 of 5

My family arrived on April 21st 2018 to a clean and tidy condo. The Condo had all the cooking utensils, pans, and accessories we could need for a week long stay. The pool was amazing and the snorkeling was perfect right on site. The charcoal grill could be replaced, but we made due. We ran into a few problems, but Grace and Robert (owners) jumped on it and had them fixed right away. All and All I could not say a bad thing about this property. Grace and Robert have a wonderful property manager and she check in on us to make sure our stay was going well...which was so very kind....and of course our stay was going well....how could it not in this beautiful place. This island is amazing, the people are kind and the property is perfectly located. We walked to the restaurant next door and the kids could swim and snorkel while we were enjoying a beverage...Sunsets every night right down by the water....on site!

Owner's Response: Dear April, Thank you so much for your lovely review. You're right, there were a few "island style" problems while you stayed with us (these happen to everyone when you live on a small island but its never fun when you're the one travelling who has to deal with them!), but you were lovely and understanding and we were very grateful for the way you approached this. We're so glad you had a lovely holiday, and we hope you'll come back soon! Kind regards, Grace & Robert True

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough about this beautiful place. We enjoyed everything about the condo. Away from the crowds but convenient to everything we wanted to see. We snorkeled and saw many different fish right out the back door. The view from the condo was perfect and the pool was great. Hope to come back to the. Caymans someday. Love it here.

Lovely, quiet, water-front location

  • 5 of 5

Nice, quiet complex in West Bay, convenient for scuba diving and snorkeling with a mini-wall just off shore. If you are looking for a great place away from the bustling George Town and Seven Mile Beach area, but close enough to get to it if you want, this is it! Easy parking, nice covered patio with view over the pool and out to the ocean, and well maintained grounds. The unit had a great floor plan and the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare and serve meals. We dove with stingray watersports - 10% discount for guests of Coconut Bay condos - and enjoyed the new boats, great crews and small number of divers on each trip we made with them. Foster's grocery store is not far and many good restaurants are within a 10 minute drive, including the amazing Cracked Conch just next door.

Book here you wont regret it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic facilities, fantastic location and fantastic service from the owners from start to finish.

We have visited the Cayman Islands on many occasions including a 6 month stay and this condo is hands down the best we have stayed at. A beautiful setting that is very well maintained and with diving facilities on site and super friendly residents and neighbours that will help make your stay truly special.

Northernmost part of the western tip of Grand Cayman island. Quieter than the hustle and bustle of 7 Mile Beach, but the beach is still just minutes away. The complex is famous for its world class diving and snorkelling, and the area is quiet and peaceful. Some of the best bars and restaurants are right next door.
