Best family vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a large group. We are a three generation family of 14 people ranging in age from 10 months old to 63 years old. The cottage was very convenient for the baby and parents and the layout of the main house gave everyone privacy plus room for all family time. The living areas allowed plenty of room for all of us to gather, play games, hang out, eat, and have fun together. The covered pool gave us a respite from the sun in the afternoons and away from bugs in the evening. The kitchen is well appointed--we all love to cook--the kitchen had everything and more!

Cayman Sands is convenient to everything on the Island. You cannot beat the privacy of this beautiful home, the exquisite view of the ocean, and the beach all to yourself everyday! When we went to 7 mile beach for a day, our 8 year old grandson exclaimed, "When can we go back to our own beach. This place is crowded with too many people!"

This side of the island is quiet, calm, easy going, and very limited commercial vendors--which we loved.

We stayed for two weeks and can't wait to return to Cayman Sands.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Cayman Sands! The house worked perfectly for our two families. The kitchen was nicely stocked for the few nights we ate in, but we also enjoyed the restaurants over on this quiet side of the island - Tukka, Rum Point, Eagle Ray's, the Lighthouse, and Kurt's. We did venture over to Seven Mile Beach for activities on a couple of days but loved that we could retreat to the serenity of Cayman Sands. We enjoyed the beach, snorkeling off the beach, the pool, the gazebo and hammocks! No shortage of things to do right at the house. We also made use of the kayaks and floats. We also enjoyed "local" excursions to the Botanical Gardens, the Mastic Trail, Starfish Point, and Stingray City. Bring sturdy water shoes - Cayman beaches are very rocky and Cayman Sands is no exception. We only experienced very minor issues with a bathroom sink and shower both of which were addressed completely and promptly. We would go back to Cayman Sands without hesitation!

This place was just amazing, everything you could ask for. The only thing I would want added would be a patio umbrella or something to add shade to the pool area or beach area.

Perfection in paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cayman Sands was everything I could dream of in a vacation and more!

They have thought of (almost, see below) everything right down to the tiniest detail! The house is gorgeous! I had my doubts about the screened-in atrium but when the sun starts to set, the bugs come out (bring bug spray) we were so happy to be able to still enjoy the sunset and sound of the waves while not getting eaten alive! We kept looking for the hammock(s) outside the house, we finally found them in the storage closet but they were super-easy to set-up in the gazebo and let me tell you, several naps were taken there!

Throughout planning this trip all the way through to our stay, the management company (Grand Cayman Rentals), the owner, and the local property representative have been so incredibly helpful! On our first day there was a lot of seaweed and trash on the direct beach front (not the private part of the beach directly behind the house which we loved and played a lot of bocce ball on!) I sent an email to Jim at Grand Cayman Villas and copied the local rep and owner just to be on the safe side and they sent someone out to rake it, now THAT is service!

I loved that someone went to the effort of using a label-maker to mark what each light switch does, there are a lot of them and, while it's a small detail, it just shows the thought they've put in to aleaving every ounce of stress.

My only recommendations (not to be confused with complaints) would be:

- put some caution tape on the front-entry stairs because the first step leading to the drive is very hard to see (the ceramic tile is white, the gravel is white, and it's right as you walk out) sadly I fell and sprained my ankle on our 2nd day, it slowed me down quite a bit but I didn't let it stop me entirely! See comments about insurance.

- the curtain rods and sconces should be anchored to the wall. As you gradually move the drapes open and close over time, the rods slide back and forth and unfortunately you don't realize it until one slips and hits you smack-dab on the bridge of the nose.

Local recommendation:

- The White House was one of the best meals of my life! This is where we are on my 40th birthday (the reason for our trip) and the service, the food, the staff, the atmosphere; everything about it was like something out of a dream!

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!

Car: recommended

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.
