“Very peaceful, pleasant, quite relaxing”
The place is worth staying,. especially if vacationers are looking for natural beauty. Friendly People, and diving sites.I would recommend this place to my friends and family. A home away from home, peaceful and tranquilizing.If you desire peace and quiet, this an ideal place to go.
Response from the manager Good Morning, Thank you for your wonderful review of On the Bay 104. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at this unit and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Juliet Cumber-Forget Business Manager Cayman Villas
“Lovely place on the water”
On the Bay condos are nicely situated with a private beach and cove. Because there are only 12 condos, we had the pool and beach practically to ourselves. The condo is very spacious, and there were plenty of towels. We are scuba divers and typically stay closer to Ocean Frontiers Dive shop, but our usual place wasn't available this time. On the Bay is a little further for us to drive, but not substantially. Overall this was a very good rental. The downside is that the master bedroom bed was loud - turning over during sleep typically woke one of us up. And our daughter reported that the twin bed in the second bedroom was really hard. The water was completely turned off for two mornings without advance notice to us. We were told that the water company was working on it.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review and the feedback about the bedding. This is something we will definitely bring up with the owner. We were very sorry to hear about the water being turned off during your stay and hope that it didn't cause too much inconvenience. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the peaceful beach area! Please keep us in mind for your future diving holidays and we will hopefully be able to accommodate you. Happy travels, Noelle - Cayman Villas Travel Specialist
“Nice place, reasonable price, courteous managers”
If you like to get away from the crowds and bustle of the tourist areas in Georgetown and Seven Mile, this condo is just right for you! Just around the bend at the end of Frank Sound Road, the Northside location is quiet -- a great place to relax without the hassles of town. A sea pool has been cut into the iron shore about 200 feet from your door. I would wear swim shoes or dive boots to use it as many pieces of broken coral and other sharp objects litter the floow -- but it is the sea, so what do you expect! A freshwater pool is just a few steps from the patio. The patio itself is small but comfortable. On the first floor, the condo does not have any real view to speak of, but the flowering plants around the patio are well maintained. The barbeque grill outside was poorly maintained, and we decided against cooking on it since it would have taken us far too long to clean it up. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice grill, it just hadn't been cleaned well by the last user and had clearly sat unused for some time after. It just needed a scrubbing and, hey, we were on vacation! Solid comfortable furniture inside, central air, satellite tv. All very nice. Master bedroom TV has no cable and a note saying for Dvds only. Another note says you can find Dvds in the living room, but there were none. New appliances, well fitted kitchen. Nice dishes. Washer and dryer in the condo. Everything was well maintained. Overall a nice stay and we would consider staying here again
“Quiet, Relaxing vacation”
This is our 2nd time staying at On the Bay, the first time in #104. We have been vacationing in the Cayman Islands for many years and would recommend this complex to anyone who wants to avoid the crowds and congestion on other parts of the island. #104 was clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with easy access to the sparkling pool and beach. Although we could hear the sound of the ocean from the patio, most of the view is blocked by overgrown plants, something which could be easily corrected with simple pruning. The grounds and building were clean and well kept otherwise. We enjoyed excellent meals at Over The Edge, Rum Point, the Lighthouse and had fun listening to the Barefoot Man at The Reef and visiting the Turtle Farm. We will definately stay here again.
Great value on the quiet side of the island. This unit, being at the back of building, does not have window views of the ocean but the private beach is only steps away. Unit was clean, comfy and outfitted with everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Kurt's restaurant is in walking distance and has the best fish and burgers served by the best ladies around.
“Wonderful private family vacation spot.”
We had an amazing stay at on the bay #104. The area of the island was perfect for us, we like quiet and in touch with nature! Gazillions of hermit crabs on the rocks, little lizards, and the occasional iguanas kept the boys entertained. The pool was the perfect size for our kids ages 13, 11, 9, & 5. The private beach was incredible, with enough fish & other sea life to make a lasting impression on our first time snorkelers. The condo itself had everything we needed. Wait, it could have used a cooler for our picnic lunches, and to keep our beers cold by the pool. We cooked in for 4 or 5 dinners during the week, and it had all the kitchen supplies necessary. The decor was perfect for the islands, and all the facilities, air conditioning, doors, etc worked well. The common areas were kept clean & raked, and Cayman Villas was very willing to help us, but everything was perfect, we never needed additional help! To any other families of 6 who are planning to stay here, don't hesitate, there's plenty of room. Location was perfect for us, but may be off putting to those who don't want to cook. We did go to the area restaurants and they were good, but gets pricey fast with a family.
“A nice stay”
On the Bay # 104 is a decent condo. We found the unit clean and ready when we arrived. I asked the Cayman Villa Company several times about access to the small man made lagoon for elderly people. We were told access was good. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Entering the water here is like climbing down a mountain side if you are have limited mobility and/or not a lot of leg strength. Once in the water, you had best have a strong young person there to pull you out. Otherwise, you will be there forever. The location of the unit is in the rear of complex. Furthest from the ocean. The Cayman Villa people did not seem to know this fact. I should have been suspicious because they never answered the question about ocean proximity directly. Overall, the complex is located in a nice private area, and if you are not mobility impaired I would recommend it. My next Cayman visit will include more direct questions about water entry and exit ease for older and mobility impaired people. Lastly, the beds are very uncomfortable and the sofa bed is not suitable for sleeping.
“Peaceful side of the island”
We were after something different from 7 mile beach and got it! The apartment itself is very spacious, comfortable and contains everything you would expect from a holiday rental. Towels, linen, detergent, soap, shampoo all provided - which was a nice touch. The facilities at On The Bay resort are limited to a pool, bbq and a sandy beach around an inlet. It is impossible to swim in the ocean directly behind the complex as there is no access - the jagged rocks make it too dangerous. The closest restaurant is Over the Edge, which is only a mile up the road in the direction of Rum Point. Tukka restaurant is in the other direction and a little further. Both are worth trying. Cayman Villas were easy to deal with. Keys ready for us at avis even though we arrived late at night. The only disappointment was having to drop the keys back to them (near the airport) even though we were not going in that direction. Leaving the keys inside the apartment when we left would have been a better alternative. In general - good value accommodation away from the bustle of 7 mile beach.
“Great Place to Greet the New Year!”
This was the perfect family getaway as it offered a great private beach with a pool right there. The condo was clean and offered everything to make it our home for the week. Two great restaurants within a 2 minute drive. Make sure you drive to the East shore for the sunrise!
“Fabulous condo in the North Side”
We stayed in this condo in april after the Easter holidays so it was very quiet ( except for my noisy kids). We often had the pool or the small private beach to ourselves. The condo was really amazing. Very spacious, clean, up to date. We had pretty much everything inclusive of ironing board, washer and dryer ( which we didn't use), utensils, everything you could possible need except for food. We drove to Georgetown/7 mile beach a lot but spent much of our time in the North side. Cayman Kai which is further North is beautiful and although the public beaches were quite rocky, there were areas that were sandy and great for kids for eg. Lots of reefs for snorkelers although we have small children and could not enjoy that. This is a great place for families with children or people who want to escape. We do not like very touristy areas that are busy and it was perfect for us. Oh, and we would highly recommend Cayman Villas overall. They are second to none in customer service.
