“3 weeks in paradise!”
We rented this condo for 3 weeks as we were on the island for a family wedding. There were 5 adults in the group and there was plenty of space and having 3 bathrooms was an added bonus. The condo is superbly kitted out - everything you could possibly need. Mark contacted us within a few days to make sure all was good and it was. Old Man Bay has to be one of the best spots on the island and the view from the balcony both morning and evening was brilliant. at the most there were 4 other condos occupied at the same time but you would not know - most of the time we had both the beach and the pool to ourselves. The lagoon was fine for snorkelling and providing you take care to avoid the sea urchins you can easily access the ocean through the breaks in the wall. We saw lobsters, turtles rays plenty of fish and even a lion fish here. Locally there is Kurts corner to eat and a couple of other restaurants within 15 mins drive . Rum point is only 15-20 mins away . For divers there are plenty of shore dives . If ever we were to return to Grand Cayman we would stay here again without a doubt - 7 mile beach - ways too busy and touristy for us!!
We spent 3 weeks at the condo from February 16th thru March 9th. It was exactly as pictured, clean and very comfortable. The grounds were very well maintained. Have to say the "bay area" to swim in was exceptional and very unique. We have been to many islands and this was the best swimming area we have experienced. The seas were rough on a few days of our stay but we were still able to enjoy the water because of the reef...just like a huge salt water pool! We rarely used the real pool. Rum Point was another beach we enjoyed visiting, a short drive away for a change of scenery. Star Fish Beach was a real treat too! Amazing water! This side of the island is very natural with lots of coral and a rocky shoreline in many places. You can still walk the beach outside of the condo but plan on bringing water shoes. We did drive to the Seven Mile area to check out the beaches there. They were very beautiful but we found the area to be very commercialized and enjoyed going back to the quieter side of the island and were very happy that we had chosen this location. There were quite a few restaurants to eat at without driving very far. We enjoyed Tukkas the best. They also own Eagle Rays at the Compass Pointe Resort. Awesome views and great food at both places. My husband dives and used Ocean Frontier Divers and would highly recommend them. He did many dives and was very impressed with their entire operation. Mark was so helpful from the beginning, when we first booked the place, right up until our arrival and even during our stay. We plan to return some day and would stay here again for sure.
“Amazing Christmas Vacation!!!”
We spent a wonderful 9 days over the Christmas holidays at Mark's condo in Old Man Bay, and it was the best family vacation we have ever had. The condo was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and then some, and the view of the ocean from the condo was spectacular!! We toured the whole island during our visit and really enjoyed coming back to the peacefulness of this property. We all tried snorkelling for the first time and it was a great place for beginners to learn. We also ate a couple of meals at a nearby restaurant called 'Over the Edge' and enjoyed the food and ambiance there. We found everyone to be very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to this beautiful island and will definitely be booking this beautiful condo again. Thank you so much Mark for letting us stay at your amazing home!!!
“A Dream Getaway on Grand Cayman”
What a great family getaway! We were looking for a warm place to bring our family before Christmas. We had never gone to Grand Cayman before. Our ideal trip is a sleepy place on the each that is very comfortable and well-appointed. We sure found that at this property. It was quiet (even close to the Christmas holidays). There is a beautiful pool right on the ocean and a protected cove full of multi-colored fish providing excellent snorkeling. The condo's balcony runs along the master bedroom and living room providing a wonderful spot to watch the sunset, read a book or enjoy a meal. Seven mile beach is the tourist area on Grand Cayman. It is mobbed with people, hotels and cruise ship vacationers. We found it far too chaotic for our liking. The North Side, where this property is located, is just the opposite and suited my family perfectly. The owner, Mark, was responsive and helpful as we planned our vacation. I could not recommend this place more highly.
“Wouldn't change a thing... Exceptional week spent in a gorgeous”
First time visit for our family to Grand Cayman-spent a week in late November. The condo is everything that the pictures reveal, and more. All 3 bedrooms are roomy and attractively decorated. The master bathroom is stunning; ocean view and breezes from this front bedroom were the best! The kitchen has everything we needed to prepare our meals. I can't think of anything that the owner could still supply for your cooking convenience. We ate most of our meals on the outside deck overlooking the water- my idea of a relaxing meal. Though the condo complex consists of 12 units, I believe there were only 3 occupied while we were there--a quiet uncrowded environment, we had the outdoor pool and lagoon to ourselves throughout the week. If you are seeking people, traffic and day cruisers walking the streets, this is not where you want to stay! A car is necessary to see other parts of the island, we rented through Budget, a good experience. Ten mins. away by car, Rum Point has most of the activities we participated in - kayaking, paddle boarding, playing beach volleyball. I personally recommend Ocean Frontier if you are a scuba diver. There are many diving operators to choose from; Ocean Frontier is on the east side of the island, more conveniently located from the condo. WiFi reception was excellent throughout the stay. Working with the owner was professional, timely and personable -- if we return to the Caymans, we would certainly request to stay here.
“Lovely and relaxing”
Mark's condo is just as advertised. If you are looking for a place with all you need for a fabulous holiday, then rent this place!!
“Stayed a week, wished it was a month!”
That's what my 3 teenaged kids said, and I wholeheartedly agreed. This is great location and unit - far enough from the cruise ship crowds, yet close enough to easily reach everything you want to in your rental car. Clean, spacious, and fully-stocked condo located on an awesome private beach with a great property-only pool. The rental process was easy and the owner extremely helpful with maps, insider island tips, and hot spots that you might not find by looking on your own. Overall, a 5-star experience at a 3-star price - never staying at a hotel again if I can help it. Thanks Mark!
“Great place to get away”
The condo is great. I went with my kids (teens) and parents (75+) and we had a great time. The condo is on the second floor but the complex has an elevator. The condo beach area is well maintained; however, its very rough sand and gravel. If you are coming for a great sand beach, stay on seven mile beach instead. Avoid nearby Barefoot Beach -- it's pretty much a garbage dump.
“Best place on the island to go and relax”
Best vacation I've been on in years very great place to relax and relieve the stressful life. Was depressed when we had to leave. The private cove was awesome to swim in.
Our get away was to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We got together with two other couples and planned our getaway. Once we found Mark's condo, it was nothing but easy from that moment on. Mark made all of the planning and preparation for the trip super easy. He was extremely helpful with suggestions and offered advice on travel and car rental. When we arrived the view was what struck us first and then we were so pleased with the accommodation. We so enjoyed being off the beaten path. We drove around most of the island, but enjoyed our spot the best. The three couples left their children at home, but the lagoon would have been a perfect place for children to swim and play. We would recommend this rental to anyone. There were several good restaurants near by.
