Old Man Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 14

4-5BR/4-5BA Cayman Sands Villa is directly oceanfront in Old Man Bay on the north coast. RECENTLY RENOVATED; this very popular villa is one of only 2-3 villas that offers shore-diving (SCUBA) to the famous Cayman Wall. 4-5BR en-suite bathrooms and luxury feel. Completely re-tiled and bathrooms all upgraded, as well as kitchen.

The oceanfront freshwater pool is protected by a screened atrium, so large crabs, lizards and bugs can’t make themselves a nuisance during a seaside dinner or cocktail hour. With optional pool heat available in the winter months, the water is sure to be inviting to guests of all ages any time of year.

With an open, one-story design, Cayman Sands offers large families an intimate experience while still living within a roomy 4,000 sq ft. villa. The oceanfront vaulted greatroom with cupola offers 30 feet of sliding glass doors to the sea flood the villa with Caribbean sunshine and breeze year round. This home was thoughtfully designed to be opened up in winter for a cooler night when the A/C wasn't necessary. French doors from both master suites also open to the screened atrium. The full, modern kitchen offers all the standard appliances, as well as dishware, cookware, and cutlery. Sundeck outside the atrium for sunbathers!

The sandy beach offers an oceanfront gazebo and two hammocks for long afternoons relaxing with a book or simply enjoying the views. Two kayaks are also available, so you can explore the sparkling Caribbean waters just outside your back door! A poolside sectional sofa and dining set are perfect for evening cocktails or outdoor dining.

We liked it so much that we came back.

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting from the property agent for years. We rented Cayman Sands last year with friends, and we promptly booked it again for this year. The trip did not disappoint. The location was and is fantastic. It is not nearby the busy areas, which is exactly what we wanted. It is within convenient driving distance to a couple of smaller grocery stores, Rum Point, and a liquor store. If you enjoy cooking, as I do, then you will find the kitchen well-appointed with the ocean and pool area visible due to the open floor plan. The two suites on either side of the property provide quite a bit of privacy, and the ceramic-tile patio or sun deck extends along the entire ocean-facing side of the property, so each suite has a nice small sitting area outside french doors. The private beach is nice, as is the screened-in pool area. We particularly enjoyed watching sunsets from the gazebo. We'll be back.

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Cayman Sands! We were visiting family on the island and everyone agreed it worked beautifully for us. The floor plan was wonderful. I really appreciated that everything was on one floor. The covered pool allowed us to enjoy the outdoors without the mosquitos. It felt like home. It had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and wonderful towels and beautiful bed rooms. It was clean and the owner and manager were wonderful to work with. The whole process was easy and all of my questions were answered quickly. It was very comfortable and close to wonderful snorkeling and diving. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to the island!

We rented this house originally to have a few friends get together for a 50th birthday celebration, but after a surprise engagement decided to get married there. The home was a perfect spot for the wedding! It is located such that we had all the privacy needed, and as much space as well. The home is decorated so tastefully and stocked with everything a family could need! The cottage was a perfect addition for the in-laws. This house is well maintained, and managed to perfection. From the moment we rented the home and during our visit, help was only a call away if needed.

We plan on visiting Grand Cayman again one day with the hopes of Cayman Sand being open for our use again!

Gorgeous house and beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely gorgeous and well equipped. The cottage was a nice added touch because we brought a babysitter with us. The beach was perfect. It is great for a family vacation however you need a car because it is remote. It's about 35 to 40 minutes from Georgetown but we enjoyed the adventure of driving around the island. There is a gas station nearby and a small grocery and liquor store about ten minutes away. We ate in Georgetown one night only because of the long drive, however there are a couple of nearby restaurants that were delicious. We had a toddler so we did have to make sure that the door to the pool was always locked. We also made sure that there was a bar to stop the door from opening if he unlocked the door. We put a chair in front of the front door at night (just being over cautious). The local phone did not work very well but we had our cell phones so we were fine. The house and yard were very spacious and we would definitely go back.

4 generation

  • 5 of 5

4 generation family of 10 people (10-84 yrs.) stayed here for a week. We came from Alaska & WI. We loved this home, it's layout was perfect. The common area was large enough for us to have meals & fun, but yet the bedrooms afforded families to escape for privacy (& own bathrooms). The View...couldn't ask for better! Only one house next door, but we felt we had the whole beach to ourselves. The atrium pool area was nice for keeping bugs out. We paid for pool heat, but still very cold. My 84 yr. old mother-in-law was looking forward to swimming there, but to cold. It barely got used. My husband & I rented the cottage, very cute. Don't use the shower at night, we are assuming that is what kept setting off the smoke alarm to beep every 20 seconds. Take your shower in the cottage during the day. The main house kitchen has everything, large table for meals & cards. We had groceries delivered from Kirk Market (great service). Unfortunately we experienced some bad weather late in the week. Rain was coming in the seaside doors from the weather seal, we were moping a lot. The owner himself called and apologized & was getting it fixed after we left. Things unexpectedly can happen even in paradise. The good things outweigh the few incidents. We loved our stay with the whole family and we would return or recommend Cayman Sands.

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

Cayman Sands was the most relaxing and fantastically appointed property we've ever rented. The location is wonderful. We have been to 7 mile beach many times and were unsure of how we would like the remoteness of this side of the island, but we may never go back to 7 mile! We really enjoyed how we were able to get away from it all, but yet still go to Rum Point or Kaibo or some of the other great restaurants/sights on the Northside.

The photos of this property don't do it justice. We were so impressed with every detail that made us feel at home. The plush towels, comfortable bedding and plenty of great beach towels. The cooking utensils and kitchen amenities were great for cooking fabulous family meals or just whipping up a pitcher of margaritas!

Cayman Sands was clean, beautiful and everything we wanted in a vacation property. I highly recommend it!!

With a central location on the island…the homes in Old Man Bay offer perhaps the best shore diving and snorkeling on the entire island. The beaches are mostly sand, but also can be have some natural rock formations too. Either way, with the varied marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The beaches here offer great seashell collecting and turtle sightings in summer! Old Man Bay is only 5 minutes from (2) large resorts in the east end ( and ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a Coffee/pastry shop!). Heading west, "Kurt's Korner" is a local restaurant within walking distance; and then "Over the Edge" restaurant is about one mile away. They serve breakfast, lunch AND dinner and offer a varied menu that offers a value choice. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. You are also only 5-10 minutes to the best SCUBA diving operations/dive sites on the entire island. and are two of the best. About 15 minutes to the west of Old Man Bay is the famous Rum Point Club…with watersports, restaurant, bar, gift shop, grill and a barefoot beach with table service. Here is where the catamaran departs for stingray sandbar/snorkeling tours.
