About the property

2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Our beautiful townhouse is located on the National Trust's Historical Walking Tour of old Caymanian homes on the sea side of Boggy Sand Road, West Bay, just off the main West Bay Road. The townhouse is nestled in ancient seagrape trees at the northern end of world famous Seven Mile Beach and is in a residential area, away from the bustle of the main resort areas. Just offshore are the most popular dive sites on the western end of Grand Cayman, including the newest dive attraction, the USS Kittywake, recently sunk off our beach. There are also shallower reefs for snorkeling with popular Cemetery Reef just a few hundred yards away. For landlubbers, the beach or the deck under the shade of the seagrape trees provide the ideal setting to enjoy a good book and a beverage. Rest and relaxation are guaranteed at this cozy seaside townhouse.

All the conveniences of home and more... Knot Fansea offers modern amenities, comfort and convenience. The living room has a tropical decor and seats 5 comfortably. Sliding glass doors offer an unobstructed view to the sea and lead you to the deck. The kitchen includes all the amenities you will need to make your favorite meal with seating for 6. A spiral staircase takes you to the bedrooms on the second floor. The main bedroom has a queen sized bed. Bedroom 2 has twin beds. Each bedroom has its own private spacious full bathroom. The deck is shaded by ancient sea grape trees and palm trees creating a cool place to relax and unwind. The location of our townhouse is incredible, literally steps away from the water on the last mile of the world famous “Seven Mile Beach”.

Getting Out: Getting out within walking distance of the townhouse is a full service grocery store, gas station, Presbyterian church, casual restaurants as well as a small plaza with a bank, medical clinic, sandwich shop, photo shop and Internet service provider. The world famous Boatswains Beach (formerly the Turtle Farm) and Hell are just a short 3 mile drive away. Within the district of West Bay are several well known eating establishments including Ristorante Pappagallo, Cracked Conch, Osetra Bay, Morgan's Harbour Restaurant and Calypso Grill, all of which are also only a short drive away.

Relax: Knot Fansea offers the ultimate relaxation experience. A private chef, housekeeper and personal massage therapist can be arranged to cater to your personal requirements on advanced notice. For multiple family requirements, there is an adjoining townhome (see property # 156492).

If quietness and tranquility are your idea of your next vacation, you can count on it with us. We look forward to sharing with you our own little bit of paradise.

Boggy Sand Road is a quiet lane of private residences off the main West Bay Road. It is close to everything you need to enjoy a comfortable holiday yet far enough away from it all to ensure total relaxation. Within walking distance is a well stocked grocery store, a service station, floral shop, bank, photo shop, internet services, church and several small restaurants. Within a few minutes drive are some of the Islands' top restaurants such as Calypso Grill, Cracked Conch, Morgans Harbour Restaurant, Osetra Bay and Ristorante Papagallo. Also within a short driving distance are world famous 'Hell', Boatswains Beach (formerly the Turtle Farm), two new 'Swim with the Dolphins' facilities, North Sound boat trips and dive shops. Cayman's newest dive attraction, the USS Kittywake, is just offshore from our property and is accessible by our own kayaks (for experienced divers only) or by one of the many nearby dive boat operators.

Wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Beth's Knot Fansea townhouse. It had large and clean bedrooms and bathrooms, ample hangers and space to hang clothing, nicely sized dressers, and plenty of towels for bath and beach use.

As for the outside, the beach was just steps away from the deck, which offered a beautiful view of the ocean. The nice thing about the deck was that it also offered shade. Snorkeling was really good right from the beach.

Beth lives right across the street, and was very accommodating to ensure we had a great time.

Outstanding Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

You just can't beat a rental unit with the Caribbean outside the back door. This is an excellent unit with close access to beaches and great reefs to explore in the back yard. Beth has done a great job of maintaining the property and keeping it fresh. Our party consisted of two couples and we found the large kitchen and dining area to be a big "plus". The outdoor deck is exceptional and provides a lookout on to the bay as well as the most pleasant spot to eat breakfast imaginable. There are a couple of good restaurants within a five minute walk and a supermarket around the corner. One great aspect of the unit is it's quiet neighborhood setting. We were blissfully away from the crowds, traffic, and mayhem that describes the more heavily touristed areas along Seven-Mile Beach. A great place, with great people, and great diving and snorkeling! We highly recommend you check out one of Beth's properties!

Perfect Summer Haven - Snorkel and Scuba vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying in one of Beth's properties and we couldn't imagine going anywhere else. This is a little slice of heaven. The location is perfect, peaceful, beautiful, and the amenities are spectacular. The townhouses are more than enough space for our family of 5 - Beth always provides a rollaway for our youngest who is 13. We take our teenage daughters here and they love the beach, the snorkeling, the scuba diving. If you ever have any special need, the owner will help to make sure it is met. I would and have recommended this property to anyone searching for a worry free, self-catering vacation. There are also tons of 5-star restaurants all over the place. We cook in and eat out. We feel right at home and our only complaint is we wish we could stay longer! this year we stayed for 10 days and it was fabulous!

Amazing location and convenient accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the 2/2.5 Townhome from June 12th through June 19th and we could not be more satisfied. The accomodations were perfect and allowed us to cook breakfast and lunch in the condo which helped us to save on some expenses. Also, the activities right outside the backdoor were amazing: snorkeling, kayaking and relaxing on the prestine beach. My wife said she would rather go back here than to Hawaii again, and we definately plan on doing so. Be sure to take a snorkel because the snorkeling is the best I have ever seen, about 100 yards out with a place to tie your kayak...

A home by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at the Nautilus for over 14 years and it never fails to be a place where my body and spirit are renewed. the hostess and owner Beth provides loving hospitality and the sea always beckons. The best snorkeling on the islands is a 10 minutes swim away and the sunrises and sunsets are a daily gift from our Creator. The locations is perfect on historic Boggy Sand Road but close to a Foster's grocery store in West Bay. The apartments and surroundings are well-kept and very comfortable. All of the apartments have been updated are private and the deck provides a place for sun and restful shade under the big sea grapes. The kitchen has everything you need and the outside grill is wonderful. I would recommend this property without question and will continue to return myself.

Relax and Let Your Cares Slip Away

  • 5 of 5

This spot is absolutely gorgeous. If you are looking for a place to stay where you can relax and be worry free, this is your spot. The accommodations are terrific. The deck to the beach for your morning coffee over looks the beautiful beach and ocean. Lawn chairs are provided to enjoy the sun during the day while your husband kyaks the ocean. At night, sit on the deck outside your bedroom and watch the sun set. It is gorgeous. Also, this end of the beach is very quiet, carefree, layed back, and very relaxing. It is not a busy, rush, rush spot. There is access to a grocery store that is terrific. It has most everything you will need for your stay. There are also a couple of local places to eat just down the street which are really fun. You will never meet finer people than Beth and Frank. They are so helpful and welcoming. Anything we needed, they would help us to make sure our stay was pleasant. It is nice to be able to visit frequently with the owners. They made us feel right at home. Their staff is as courteous and helpful as Beth and Frank. It is great to have local people to help you around the island. We were married there five years ago and went back for our five year anniversary only to find it just as welcoming. We are planning on returning again next year. I highly reccommend this spot for complete relaxation and letting your cares just slip away.
