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 Cayman Islands

Well, you only have the enter the flightpath 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 ammentities in Bonnie's Arch made it the only choice for us. We are avid scuba divers and the diving in our back yard is phenominal! 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 begining 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!

A Memorable Week

  • 5 of 5

I am not very good at planning trips as much as I love to travel. I worry about the unknown.Traveling with my family means I become the scapegoat if things don't work out. I am happy to say this one really worked out. Andrew was extremely helpful with any questions or concerns that I had. He was quick to get back to me each and every time I had a new question.Upon arriving at 'our home away from home ', we found a quiet but welcoming surrounding. The neighbor was friendly and we met others staying in the building who were fun as well. The condo itself was very updated and had what was necessary for our stay. We truly enjoyed the space and can't say enough about the large balcony which is where we spent most of our time while at home. Andrew was accommodating with list of restaurant suggestions. We did experience some of those ,but I would have to say there may not be bad food on the Island. Everywhere we ate had exceptional food. He also helped with a suggested list of beaches and I know we hit everyone and then some. Each was unique and more beautiful than the other. My comments since I have been home is ,"I definitely plan to go back". Grand Cayman is a bit of Paradise. Although we are not divers, we could see divers from our balcony daily. I would say a car is needed for this location.

Spacious, spotless and spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening cocktails while listening to the waves and watching dive boats and cruise ships from the large comfortable balcony of this spacious, modern condo that overlooks a beautiful pool. The kitchen has all new appliances and is as fully equipped as most restaurants. The unit has been well maintained and the beds are very comfortable. You are minutes away from diving, fine dining and grocery stores. All you need to bring is a swimsuit and sunscreen. Everything for a wonderful vacation is here!!!

Paradise Just Keeps Getting Better!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of returning to the Barron's incredible condo at Bonnie’s Arch. After our first visit a couple of years ago, there was no doubt we would be back! This spacious condo has all the amenities and is in the perfect location… a quiet community just a short drive from the action of Seven Mile Beach, countless restaurants, beaches & island activities. I highly recommend staying here if you want to enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation OR if you want to stay in the perfect location to “dive, dive, dive until you drop!"

Since we had previously stayed in this condo, we thought we knew what to expect when we got there. Much to our surprise, Andrew was actually on the island making major improvements to the unit! He came out and greeted us when we arrived at the condo. (It was great to meet you, Andrew!) Andrew is incredibly hospitable and he showed us around the unit, pointing out all the new updates since our last visit. He just installed brand new high-end kitchen appliances, upgraded the living room furniture to include a sleeper sofa, purchased new guest bedroom furniture, added a flat-screen T.V. In each of the bedrooms, and had beautiful travertine tile installed on both the front entry and balcony patios. WOW! It is absolutely gorgeous!

Andrew is a phenomenal host. He provided all the detailed information needed to plan a perfect vacation to the island. He has great recommendations for beaches, restaurants, activity operators, etc. Andrew was always prompt in answering our questions, both before and during our visits. On this trip, Andrew recommended an incredible dive operator. We used Cayman Diving for quite a few boat dives during our week on the island. I can’t recommend them enough! They gave us a great rate (tell them you’re staying with Andrew at Bonnie’s Arch!) and the staff was wonderful!

The Barron’s Little Slice of Paradise is the perfect place to spend your vacation on Grand Cayman. We are absolutely hooked, and once you stay in this fabulous condo, you will be too!

Bonnie's Arch Has It All!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful and ideal location! Close to all recreational and shopping locations yet private and personal. Andrew did an excellent job of prefacing our trip with all of the information that we needed regarding the condo and nearby surrounding activities, shopping and outstanding local restaurants. His attention to making sure your stay goes perfect is beyond what you would expect anywhere else! The condo itself is spacious and roomy with all the modern amenities you could ask for, plus! The living/gathering room area kitchen is open and roomy with all the modern appliances and accessories you could ever need. The washer and dryer are especially nice with extra-large capacities and quiet operation. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linens....well you have to slide under those sheets yourself to experience the comfort! The individual bathrooms are very clean with all modern upgrades and very roomy tiled showers. We especially liked the mounted glass bowl sink in the master bath. The accommodations on site included an awesome view from the second floor, beautifully maintained property and pool. The outside lanai facing the Caribbean Sea and overlooking the pool was a perfect gathering spot every morning and evening. The lighted tennis court and indoor air conditioned racquetball courts were awesome! And even better, Andrew keeps a nice supply of racquets and balls in the condo. The best part of the location for us was the absolutely stunning ocean views and sunsets that can be experienced from the sea wall on the property. The access points (x2) to the water have been nicely carved out from the rocks and cemented with steps and a large gathering area where you can lounge in the sun or use as an access point utilizing the very user friendly ladder that gets you in and out of the most beautiful, gin clear waters I have ever dived! Bonnie's Arch reef and several other reef locations are a very short swim from this access point. It is so beautiful and popular that we often viewed dive boats anchored to the buoys right out back. A divers paradise right in your backyard! I could write a short book regarding the island and all the great activities, dining and wonderful people we met. It is a location that you must experience for yourself, as it defies a justified description in writing. Again, Andrew is the consummate host and we can't thank him enough for providing us with an unforgettable vacation stay! Hope to return soon!

Lovely Condo in a peaceful condo complex with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo in Bonnie's Arch. The condo itself is very modern and nice inside, with everything you might possibly need provided. The owners of the condo were wonderful to work with and kept in great communication with us from the time we sent in our original request right up until we checked out.

We also really enjoyed the condo complex as it only has 12 units and therefore it is very peaceful. We also loved that the complex has racquetball, tennis and a pool so when you are not off at the beach, snorkeling or sightseeing, there is plenty to do. It is also very convenient for people who like to dive and snorkel as behind the complex is a great place to do either one.

We would definitely recommend renting this condo to anyone.

great place

  • 5 of 5

The information we received prior to staying was very helpful. The unit was as described and very well equiped. If you are divers you need to pick your day to dive at Bonnies Arch as the waves can make it difficult to use the ladder. One issue to get tanks on Grand Cayman is problematic, Divers Supply has tanks for use anywhere on GC, BUT you can only get 1 tank per person at a time and they keep your dive card so after your dive you need to return the tank for more and that can add a lot of driving time as it is a good 15 min from Condo to store. we ended up doing some boat dives and diving at sites that had tanks. We went to DiveTech just a short drive and were treated very well and they have 4 dive sites you can swim to. We also used Cayman Diving for some boat dives, and the were very good to dive with. The Ritz Sunday brunch was excellent ($$$$$). Another thing to be aware of, at majority of restaurants they include a 15% tip in the bill but on the bill they show a spot to add a tip i got caught with a double tip. All in All we had a very good stay and would stay there again

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!******
