West Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

If you are looking for an exceptional vacation on Grand Cayman, read on!

We have arranged for a vacation experience that our family likes to encounter when we travel. We have taken care of everything for our guests. Our property manager will meet you in the condo and even have groceries for you when you arrive (real important if you travel with kids). We have pool rafts and sand toys waiting for you so you don't need to go out and spend a fortune on things that you will use during your stay. If you are looking for a great time, in a beautiful condominium, in a fabulous island setting, look no further.

Our Ocean front condo is truly a slice of paradise. In the center of the complex are several acres of grass and garden area. The pool is always clean and clear. Kids can play in the courtyard and be seen from the porch. The courtyard is a fairly private area. We are at the very beginning of seven mile beach right by town so beach traffic from cruise ship passengers is minimal at our place.

We are close to town, about a 1/2 mile, restaurants, diving, groceries and stores are all within easy walking distance. Buses will pick you up on the main street if you do not want to rent a car. They run every few minutes and pick you up about 200 yards or so from the complex.

Awesome set up for Families, Couples!

About Mark Duchene

Our Family in Cayman. I own a small business here in Michigan that sells Document Management and Data security products throughout the country.

My wife and I have 4 children. We live in Farmington Hills Michigan and all of us truly enjoy Cayman for all it offers. Family vacations in Cayman is something that we all really look forward to.

Mark Duchene purchased this condo in 1999

Why Mark Duchene chose West Bay

My wife and I have been coming to Cayman since 1980 and have stayed at various places around the island. We simply found that George Town Villas was the nicest and most convenient place to stay. We purchased this condo as it was located close to everything so my crew did not need to spend time driving each day. We can walk almost to everything. The condo is the third floor so we did not hear noise from the unit above which we had found to be a real distraction when staying on first and second floor condos. The most relaxing complex and most centrally located for all the things we do on the island.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is close to everything, you won't need a car when you stay at our place. The grounds are wide open so you feel a sense of privacy you won't experience in many of the places that have built condo on top of condo. The 3 acres of lawn and garden is not present at any of the other complexes. The grocery store is close and we could walk there each day once we decide what our days plans are. The pool always have plenty of chairs so you never feel that you have to get there first to save seats together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was great! My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Cayman.

Your condo was cozy, clean and Comfortable as you said it was and I liked that is was close enough to everything so didn’t need to rent a car. I will recommend your condo to friends and family.



Thanks for everything.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time that we’ve stayed at this unit at Georgetown and this is the best time yet. Clean, on the ocean, great pool area and tennis court…can’t be beat. Walking distance to restaurants, food and beverage make this a perfect spot for families and couples wishing to get away. Right on the southern end of the beach means long walks every morning. Everything about the unit is fantastic and as advertised and will exceed expectations. The configuration of the second bedroom to accommodate three people in separate beds together with TV’s in each bedroom contributes to kids’ (and parents!) enjoyment. Great vacation yet again!!

Owner's Response: Hi Rob, Thank you for the kind words. I try to make things just a bit better than the year before and i am glad to see you notice that. We hope you come back to Cayman the next time the Canadian winter gets to you. I know our Michigan winters do that on a regular basis..

Exceptional break at best value and best location

  • 5 of 5

Karita the property manager had a warm welcome for us and a condo provided phone for our use on the island. She was always a great resource on any topic.

The condo was spacious and well laid out with a covered patio - great for viewing the ocean and pool area. Beds we comfortable and we had enough room for 5.

Snorkeling just off shore, easy walk up and down 7 mile beach but our location didnt have the big crowds making it perfect for quiet but close access to all things.

The island is so very safe - we were comfortable at all hours and the Facility was secure with their own on site security.

Work out facilities close by and good Chiro and massage

Exceptional restaurants and adventure stuff close by - dinner out is pricy but grocery store prices were reasonable. Next time I will ship an extra suitcase for meats- a good suggestion from Mark that we didn't take advantage of.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

First time visitor to the Caymans, and the location fit what we needed perfectly. We attended for a wedding, so the location was very helpful. The space, beds, and other amenities (start up groceries, towels, beach gear) were very helpful and helped us pack light.

The location is very close to downtown Georgetown and well as an easy trip to get to other restaurants and Camana Bay.

Owner's Response: I'm glad your group had a good time Corey. It is certainly a relaxing environment. We head down in a couple weeks and can't wait. Arriving in Cayman always feels like going home. Come back again anytime.

Great Seven Mile Beach Location for families

  • 4 of 5

This Simply Cayman Condo directly on Seven Mile Beach was accurately described by VRBO and the owner Mark. The on-site manager was extremely helpful and had the condo ready for an early arrival. The complimentary "start up" groceries were appreciated. We went grocery shopping at Kirks (nearby) and Blackbeards (also nearby) for adult beverages (not available in the grocery stores). At the end of our stay, we left our spices, oils, etc in the cupboards for future guests. The complimentary cell phone was helpful for local phone calls (restaurants and stores). The GTV condo is near the beginning of Seven Mile Beach (Georgetown area). It's easy to access everything on the West side of the island. We found having a car was very helpful for visiting different locations. We spent a whole day at Smith cove snorkeling (swam with a nurse shark) and laying on the beach. We visited the QE Botanic Gardens to see the famous blue iguanas. We never saw any of them away from the botanic gardens but the condo complex had several different kinds of smaller brown and green ones. We visited the Turtle farm (fun to hold the baby and toddler aged turtles) and followed the visit with a delicious meal at Cracked Conch. Other favorite meals were at Luca, and Tukka (pretty views and feed the frigates and tarpons). The condo view of the ocean is a treat. My family observed a double rainbow over the ocean from the balcony one early morning. The pool and the grounds are immaculate. My kids used the pool everyday. It was fun to meet other people from all over the world each evening as everyone gathered by the pool / beach wall to watch the sunset. We did shelling in front of the complex and saw lots of urchins. My kids appreciated the games and puzzles at night before bed. There are chickens and roosters everywhere including the GTV complex which definitely adds to the island setting. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves from the master bedroom.

Our 5th Visit, like a second home!

  • 5 of 5

Cayman is a favorite destination, tropical, and thoroughly safe. Our accommodations each visit have been Simply Cayman. The location is amazing, the view beautiful. Great coral formations just offshore, and a wreck to explore within swimming distance. It is truly a comfortable "home away from home, and we can't wait until we can return again. Found a new restaurant this visit, and we recommend Tukka, especially at sunset during the Frigate bird feeding. We also enjoy Rackams. The food is fine, and there is always a view. Watched a night dive at the wreck off the restaurant. Eerie, but interesting!

Owner's Response: Hi Louise, Thank you for the kind words. I agree with you, Cayman feels like home from the second you step off the plane. We'll try the new restaurant you found last week. Come stay again, we are glad to have you.

Exceptional View and Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great, well equipped and very comfortable condo with a view and a location that would be hard to beat. We liked that we did not need a car and could walk to restaurants, shopping, wine store and grocery store. Even the walk to downtown was only about 20 minutes and if you don't want to walk, there are frequent, inexpensive buses to take you up and down the island. My husband went scuba diving several days with Living the Dream Divers, who picked him up right outside the condo.

The pictures of the unit on the website are very accurate. The entire complex is lovely, well landscaped and maintained. We loved eating our meals on the balcony, which had a view that most restaurants wished they had. We particularly enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the The Wharf. lunch at the Marriott restaurant out by the sea and pool and lunch at Orantique in Camana Bay, all of which we walked to. We also enjoyed fantastic take out food from Indian Spice and from Thai Orchid, both within a couple of blocks of the condo. We were also impressed by the hot buffet that Kirk's Grocery Market has for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a really nice salad bar.

The the other great thing about this particular condo is the manager, Rita. She is like having your very own concierge....she can help you with restaurant choices, entertainment, current happenings on the island, shopping, taxi info, bus info, any problems you might have and anything else you might need. You can easily reach her by cell or by e-mail anytime. You will also find that she will have stocked the kitchen with a few goodies (juice,milk,cereal, cheese, crackers, etc.) to get you started, so you won't starve until you have a chance to go to the grocery store. And there is a cell phone in the condo to use to call restaurants, taxi's, dive operations, etc....very much appreciated.

We are definitely looking forward to returning next year....I am sure that this condo has a lot of repeat clients.
