This 1st floor, ocean front condo at Bonnie's Arch condominiums is truly a diver’s paradise, with direct access to the ocean and the pool. Bonnie's Arch dive site and Wall Dives are accessible directly from the property. There is something for everyone whether you enjoy relaxing by the pool in a chaise lounge reading your favorite book or snorkeling directly in front of the condo amongst the beautiful coral reefs or, taking the short 5 minute swim out to Bonnie’s Arch to experience a world class dive. EIGHT dive sites accessible right from the shore at Bonnies Arch. There are dive operations within approximately 1/4 mile from condo.

This condo is custom-decorated with new furnishings and a fully equipped kitchen (If you like to cook don’t miss buying fresh caught fish from the fisherman in George Town, but go early because once the fish are gone you will have to wait for the next morning). Quiet and secluded with only 12 units in the Complex. It’s only 12 minutes from Owen Roberts International airport, less than 5 minutes to popular Cemetery Beach and reef at the north end of exquisite 7 Mile Beach, 2 minutes to Hell. You can also book a dive/snorkel package to Sting Ray City, a unique day trip where you can view the reef and swim with Stingrays. The Boatswain’s Beach adventure park and Turtle Farm is less than a mile away.

Here you can swim with the dolphins and experience the 23 acre marine park. There are numerous restaurants within 5 minutes including the fabulous Pappagallo’s as well as Alfresco, Calypso Grill, Cracked Conch, Dock bar and grill at Morgan’s Harbor, Fisherman’s Reef and Schooner’s, there’s even a Domino’s Pizza and Subway right down the road. Of course there are many more world class restaurants to be found in George Town and on seven mile Beach which is only 10 minutes away.

Here in Grand Cayman you can do as much or as little as you want. .Whether it’s horseback riding on the beach, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, swimming with dolphins, exploring Pedro St. James, visiting world renowned stingray city or the world’s only turtle farm, or just sitting by the pool relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the Caribbean sun.

Why Owner chose Northwest Point

We chose this unit becasue of it's location and it dircet access to the ocean. With the unit being just north of Seven Mile Beach, meaning its only a few minutes to get to the shops and restaurants. From the patio you can see all the way down seven mile beach into Georgetown. We are also a few minutes away from Cemetery Beach which has become our favorite beach on the island for laying in the sand and snorkeling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Close enough to plenty of restaurants in Seven Nile Beach, short drive to a beach, good walking in a neighborhood just up the road, Condo beautifully decorated, everything that you need to be self-contained. Lovely clean pool right outside the covered porch. Small complex, mostly owner-occupied, but not many residents were there at the time we were. Those who were there were welcoming and friendly. Everything was perfect for the whole week

Excellent accomodations

  • 4 of 5

Had stayed three times in the condo next door, which had a king in the master and a queen in the guest bedroom. Had the possible need for another bed (which didn't transpire), so booked this unit as it has a King in the master and a queen and a large double bed in the guest bedroom.

Unit is well furnished, kitchen has all the cooking and eating utensils you could need.

If land crabs freak you out, prepare to be freaked....lots around this time of year...and many fall in the pool and drown/die of chlorine poisoning. Donovan, the caretaker is a great guy and keeps everything cleaned up and functioning.

Diving is good right off shore...the Arch is 50 yards out, mooring obvious, and the wall is about 150 yards out. Be aware that there can be a pretty strong to ripping current flowing NW at times....take a look at what the sea fans , soft corals, and algae are doing before venturing far off the ironshore. If they are bent over much, or fluttering vigorously in the current, abort or at least stay close to the entry/exit ladder.

You can rent tanks,weights, any other dive gear at Lighthouse Point two hundred yards NW up the road (they do not allow taking tanks off their property any more, but they do have 32% Nitrox), and at Sun Divers (same rules) at the Cracked Conch/Macabucca restaurant another 500 yards or so up the road. HIGHLY recommend the food at Macabucca....Conch Platter is killer! Fosters Grocery is a mile back down towards Georgetown, and there is a liquor store right next door with a good selection of wine and spirits. You can rent tanks (air only) at Divers Supply in town and take them anywhere on the island to shore dive, which is what you'll have to do to dive off Bonnie's Arch Condos. We normally go up to shore dive Babylon a mile east of Frank Sound Rd. on the Queens Highway heading towards East End on the North Side, but didn't have strong swimming buddies this trip, so didn't get there this time.

All in all a great place to stay....I even think that the coral is slowly doing a bit of a recovery around the island, after suffering some serious decrease in coverage over the past 30 years or so. Been diving the Caymans since 1978, so time will tell

So beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean and nicely decorated. It looked like there was lots of cooking equipment although we only used the coffee maker and toaster. We loved the convenience of just getting into the water here to snorkel. Unfortunately, much of the coral around the whole island is deteriorating but you still see nice fish. Putting in and taking out the ladder is a 2 person job, but not really a problem ( even for a couple in their mid 70’s. There is a place to rent snorkel equipment within walking distance. Cost was $15 a day for fins, goggles and vest. Also right there is a fabulous restaurant specializing in lion fish.

You would definitely need a car staying here, but it’s worth it to be in this quiet relaxing haven.

We also snorkeled at the cemetery where the beach is nice. I suggest doing a trip to Stingray city. Make sure it’s one where you also stop to snorkel. The reefs out there are prettier. I highly recommend this condo!

Perfect Place for our Visit

  • 5 of 5

This property provided a great location, close, but not too close to the commercialism and bustle of Seven Mile Beach and Georgetown.

The unit contained an abundance of towels, bedding, appliances, furnishings and other convenient items. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The sliding doors opened right onto the pool deck, beyond which was a nice view of the ocean.

We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and fellow travellers.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Unit #203 was absolutely wonderful! Having the pool five steps from the patio with the ocean in view was the perfect way to welcome the morning. The condo was clean and well-appointed. There were plenty of towels, both bath and beach, and the washer/dryer was a definite plus. There were maps and destination magazines left there for our use, as well as business cards with info for area attractions. There was free WiFi throughout the condo (a bit spotty in the master bedroom), which was very much appreciated! We had a bit of trouble with getting the cable TV to work at times, but it wasn’t a huge deal, since we didn’t come to Cayman for the television...

The condo is within walking distance to West Bay Dock, and to the Turtle Farm and one of our favorite restaurants—Macabuca (you cannot beat the sunset from the deck at Macabuca!).

The condo complex is small and quiet—just what we were looking for. There is a dive ladder available, with easy access through the iron shore to the ocean. The view from the iron shore is stunning.

Our host was very quick to respond to any questions we had, and was a pleasure to communicate with, even taking the time to speak with me by phone before our trip. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We enjoyed every minute.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, the wifi in the master bedroom can be spotty due to the concrete walls, but we are looking into possible solutions.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as advertised and pictured, everything was very clean and well stocked with everything needed for a great stay. We've spent a lot of time at Bonnie's Arch but this was our first time staying here and we would stay again.

The views from here were great, just steps from the pool.

Terri was very easy to work with.
