About Andrew

A paramedic and veterinarian met on the idyllic island of Little Cayman. Six years, one wonderful marriage and two beautiful children later, we still see the beauty that brought us together. The Cayman Islands will always hold a special place in our hearts and this is what we want to share with you.

Andrew purchased this condo in 2007

Why Andrew chose Northwest Point

Well, you only have to enter the flight path to Grand Cayman to see why we chose here. This idyllic little island is gorgeous! Grand Cayman is also the most stable foreign government in the Caribbean. It is safe, luxurious and VIP savvy. When you are here, they really make you feel special.

The location and amenities in Bonnie's Arch made it the only choice for us. We are avid scuba divers and the diving in our back yard is phenomenal! We can dive everyday for free!

We have lived here day in and day out for 4 and a half years. Now we are following different dreams and providing for our children's futures. Selling would mean the end to our wonderful beginning so we plan to return as often as possible to relive our adventurous beginnings. Hopefully you will fall in love with Bonnie's Arch like we have and want to return again and again.

What makes this condo unique

We are both very active and spend the weekends using the facilities. We have hundreds of hours in the racquetball and tennis courts. I am still trying to beat my wife at at least one game!!!

Being avid divers, we spend time out back doing wall dives at our favorite site, Big Tunnel. Once you come in from a dive, quickly rinse your gear at the hose and head straight for a quick dip in the pool with a cold drink in your hand.

We are close to everything, but not too close to be bothered by the traffic and noise. The nights are filled with stars and the lights from Seven Mile Beach. Frequently, you can watch a fireworks show on Seven Mile Beach from the balcony. You just cant ask for any more!

The Top 10 must see attractions in Grand Cayman:

1) Stingray City-Swim with a feed huge Caribbean stingrays with the safety of expert guides.

2) Dolphin Discovery/Dolphin Cove-An eco-friendly dolphin experience where you get to swim with, touch and experience one-on-one time with these wonderful creatures. Each has its own theme and is a completely different experience.

3) Cayman Turtle Farm-See these beautiful sea turtles up close, hold baby turtles, feed the daddy and granddaddy turtles, swim in the water park and see the amazing predator tank with live sharks!

4) Scuba Dive the Kittiwake-Of course all scuba diving in the Cayman Islands is great but this is special. At only 20-50 feet, you get a brand new wreck that is anything but! No storm damage, completely intact and ready for safe exploration. The steering wheel is even there for photo time!

5) Rum Point-Need I say more? Idyllic beach covered with natural and man-made shade, crystal clear water, wonderful lunches and did I mention RUM!!!? Most people fall for the mudslide and who wouldn't? But try the Pink Sand Beach with Coconut run instead of the vodka and you have found your beach side drink.

6) Red Sail Catamaran Tours-Dont feel like driving to Rum Point? How about sailing a 100' bright white catamaran on the gorgeous blue sea. The only thing better than the destination is the journey!

7) Queen Elizabeth's Botanical Park-All the native Flora and Fauna of the Caribbean can be found here. It is the refuge for the last known Blue Iguanas on the planet. With less than 20 remaining, it is better to see them now than miss them entirely.

8) Hike the Mastic Trail-See the geology that formed the Cayman Islands before the road and airports and buildings were placed. This is the real Cayman Islands. Its free but you may want to avoid this during summer months.

9) See the East End Blowholes-Along the coastline of the East End (Eastern Coast) is a geologic site. The wave water pressurizes through a small hole in the rock and out sprays something similar to 'Old Faithful'! Only, this one happens a couple times a minute. You can get pictures here if you are patient. Just listen for the telltale sounds....

10) Seven Mile Beach-Although locals refer to it as West Bay Public Beach, this beautiful stretch of sand attracts more tourists than all the banks combined. It is easy to miss general cruise ship tourist traffic and Sundays all the locals spend their days there.

11) Governor's Beach-I know it was a Top Ten list but Governor's Beach is worth it! It is right next door to the Governor's house and you know he would only pick the very best spot. This beach has the whitest sand, the clearest water and the calm water the west coast is known for.

****Guests at our property get all the insider tourist notes on these and many more must see, must do and must eat spots. Contact us and get started with planning your vacation in Grand Cayman with people who have lived and worked there for 5 years. We help with more than just your housing!******

Beautiful - just as described!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as Andrew describes it. The condo itself was very clean and nice. The beds were clean and nice - no complaints at all.

Andrew is also very attentive - making sure we had evething at check in.

We enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning and evening watching cruise ships come in and out, and dive boats just off the shoreline.

What we liked best was the location. If you want a quiet night in, this property is very peaceful and away from 7-mile beach.

If you want to go to 7-mile, the beaches are just a few minutes away with the heart of 7-mile being about a 10-minute drive.

Our stay was perfect and we would definitely stay with Andrew again.

Owner's Response: WOW! What a nice review! It is reviews like this that help travelers see the potential in what a vacation in Grand Cayman can be. I know there are so many choices out there, and more everyday! But how does someone pick the place that will be best for them? For one, location should be at the top of the list. The Northwest point area is close to everything on Seven Mile Beach, but just far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of city life. Our property is located close to grocery stores, beaches, sites and of course the cruise ship shopping district. Location is a bit more than convenience and shopping. Some properties located on the Northside, East End or Cayman Cai area can cost you time in driving an hour each way, each day just to get to the places that you want to go and see. Can you imagine doing less on your vacation because you chose a property that was located on the other side of the traffic bottleneck of Red Bay and Prospect? Or an hour to get to your dive site pick up location? Choosing a property that is close to all your want to actually do and see is important. But there is so much more to this property... We provide guidance on what there is to see and do while in Grand Cayman. Save hundreds of hours researching reviews wondering if they are real or purchased somehow. Our information is part of our service that we provide to each and every one of our guests...all for free. No extras or add-ons. Get the best entertainment package available for such a small island country. In-home High speed WiFi, Cable Television, US phone line for keeping up with family and friends (or work if you dare), Netflix access, and local phone service...all free of charge! How important is design, quality furniture and comfort? Not all VRBO's are created equally. Since we lived in our home for five years, we had the ability to make it how we wanted to live. Super comfy mattresses, quality furnishings, the best linens, Stone floors and the very best finishes available. If this is at all important to you, then look no further. How important is price? Our additional features, finishes and furnishings cost us a bit more and we are not the least expensive property in Grand Cayman. However, we believe our cost for such a high quality property is well within expectations. If you evaluate our quality, location, service, ultra-fast response, guidance and insider knowledge of the area, you will be amazed with how wonderful your vacation can be!

Great Stay at Bonnie's Arch

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bonnie's Arch to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. Andrew's instructions and information sent before the vacation were a huge help. He was also great at answering any questions that came up. We made 6 dives and hit several snorkeling spots while we were there, based on his recommendations. I highly suggest renting a car to be able to see more of the island. We really enjoyed the evening bio bay kayak tour through Cayman Kayak for something really different to try. Don't miss Stingray City. Our favorite restaurant was the new Le Vele Italian restaurant in George Town with Luca as our server. We also had an enjoyable meal with great prices at Eat's Cafe during their daily happy hour. We saw an octopus the night before we left snorkeling behind the property that was beautiful to watch. Wish we had spent more time out there. Note that everything is closed on Sundays, including the grocery store. The house was in a great location and had everything we needed. I hope we can go back again in the future.

Relaxing Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the property. We found the property to be what the owner represented. It was very nice. The owner, Andrew provided a lot of information that was useful. The phone allowed us to call the US when needed and the second phone for local calls proved to be very useful. The location was very quite. The property had a total of 12 units.

There were several dive sites out back from the property and a couple of dive shops within a half mile that we could dive at their sites as well. The only thing that was a negative was the ability to rent more than 1 tank per diver at a time. This made it a little hassle when diving from the property. You could only rent the tanks from town. We only did two dives at the site. We would have done more if we had access to more tanks that we could take to the property.

There were other owners (of different units) that were friendly and gave us additional advice. Enjoyed the trip. We did our boat dives with Cayman Divers - (Great!) and on the east end of the Island we dove with Ocean Frontiers - Very professional.

Our shore dives were with Don Foster's Dive, Eden Rock Diving Center, Sunset House and Sun Divers. They were all great places and great dives. Sun Divers is close to the property and we did a night dive here. Don Foster's set up was the most relaxing set up.

The owners recommendations on restaurants were pretty good. We did one location that was not on the list that we found nice was at the Yacht Club - Morgan Seafood. This was great and the Grouper was outstanding.
