West Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 4-bedroom Private Home Located On Historic Boggy Sand Road

Clearwater House is a spacious, 4-bedroom, private residence located on the inland side of historic Boggy Sand Road, one of the oldest and most charming residential streets in Grand Cayman. Beach access is only 323 ft from the driveway.

You'll have a unique island experience staying here; all the beauty of Seven Mile Beach without the crowds of staying on the "condo corridor". When you are ready for a night out, the corridor restaurants and amenities are only a short, 3 mile drive away. The location of Clearwater House really is fantastic. A grocery store, pharmacy, bank, restaurants, and more are just a short walk from the home.

The home is light-filled and spacious and guests are surprised at how large the home feels because of the open floor plan and windows. The home’s interior is tastefully decorated with a "barefoot luxury" look and feel. The open living, dining and kitchen spaces feature an 11 foot long, counter-height bar creating the perfect spot for large families and groups of friends to gather while cooking or mixing cocktails. Plenty of windows bring the "outdoors in" and allow for prime viewing of the gazebo, pool and pool space to give you the indoor/outdoor communal experience of Caribbean living.

The living room is equipped with a 60” HDTV, DVD player and fiber-optic cable with 119 channels including HBO, Disney, ESPN, Fox Sports and NFL Network. We have a 3-zone Sonos system to play your favorite music inside and out.

The outside living spaces are truly special; private pool, large pool area, with lounge seating, and a spacious screened gazebo. The property is enclosed with a privacy wall and has a long set-back from the nearest neighbor so your family or group will enjoy incredible privacy to sit back and relax. You could easily spend an entire day and evening enjoying the pool and outdoor space that Clearwater House has to offer.

And the Beach!! All the beaches in Grand Cayman are public and this spot, being at the north end of SMB, is incredible. The beach access path is only 323 ft from the driveway and, since Boggy Sand Road is a tiny, and not a through street, we do not have many visitors so the beach feels like your own slice of paradise. You can sit and relax looking out at the clear, turquoise water with the best snorkeling at Seven Mile Beach located just to the right of the beach access pathway; no need to pay for a snorkeling excursion. The U.S. Kittiwake reef and dive site is located straight out from this section of beach. For something different, and for more shade, Cemetery Beach is only an 8-9 minute walk from the home.

Many people from around the island head to the sea wall by Boggy Sand Road just to catch the amazing sunsets. At this sea wall, where Boggy Sand Road begins, you will also find Heritage Kitchen, the well known, island restaurant famous for its simplicity, fresh fish and fresh juices.

-Nearby causal restaurants within walking distance include Heritage Kitchen, Alfresco's, 24-hr Subway and West Bay Diner.

-Finer dining restaurants a short drive away (1.8 mi) include: Calypso Grill, Catch and Morgan's Harbor; all favorites.

-Hotel, numerous restaurants along the SMB corridor, and Camana Bay ( a shopping center with a movie theater) are only 3 - 4.5 miles away.

-Nearby attractions include the Cayman Turtle Farm and Dolphin Discovery (1.8 mi), Cemetery Beach (0.6 mi), West Bay Beach Boat Ramp (0.25 mi), Yacht Club Boat Ramp (2.0 mi), Ritz Carlton Blue-Tip Golf Course (3.7 mi), Safehaven Dock and Northsound Golf Course (3.8 mi) and a curious little town called Hell (1.8 mi).

About Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond

Through the years, we took many fantastic family beach vacations in wonderful places…and then we came to Grand Cayman. Cayman felt like home instantly; people are friendly, the beaches are fantastic, the water crystal-clear, calm and warm and the marine life is incredible. All that with luxury living and gourmet restaurants to make life comfortable.

Once we decided to make Grand Cayman our home, we spent the next 2 years exploring the island and trying to find our perfect slice of paradise. The charm and location of Boggy Sand Road is so unique, and the beach so beautiful , we knew this is where we had to have our home. We were lucky to find such a beautiful home: Clearwater House.

Clearwater House now feels like home to us. We have four generations of our family visiting at times and having a private home allows us to enjoy meals and evenings together away from the crowds. We have worked very hard to make it a wonderful place for our family and friends and genuinely enjoy sharing our home with other families, couples and groups of friends who come to Cayman on holiday.

Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond purchased this house in 2015

Why Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond chose Cayman Islands

Boggy Sand Road is an idyllic residential street with a mix of beachfront mansions and lovely 100-year old Caymanian cottages. Boggy Sand Beach is without a doubt our favorite part of Seven Mile Beach; absolutely stunning sunsets and wonderful snorkeling and marine life. We love that it is quiet, relaxing and away from the more crowded parts of Seven Mile Beach along the condo corridor. Plus we can walk to Heritage Kitchen for great fresh fish and juices!

What makes this house unique

The home is light, spacious and nicely furnished. The pool and outdoor entertaining areas provide days and evenings of fun. A short 3-minute walk up the driveway and down the picturesque Boggy Sand Road brings you to quiet Boggy Sand Beach, the finest stretch of Seven Mile Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - or a 8-9 minute walk to Cemetery Beach!

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been anxiously anticipating our first trip to Grand Cayman for many months as our familys trip was meant to allow for "blending" opportunities. So it was important to find the right house at the right location. Clearwater could not have been more perfect for us. Every detail of the house was so well thought out: from the abundance of towels to the Sonos audio system and Netflix on every TV to a fully stocked gourmet kitchen to bathrooms complete with body lotion and shampoo. It was clear that Kathy, the owner, was intent on giving her guests a 5 star experience with every need anticipated and met. When we arrived, we were greeted by Kathy and her daughter Emily with a full pitcher of homemade mojitos. She encouraged us to get comfortable and gave us a quick explanation of the house and surroundings. A quick trip to the market and we were off to explore the grounds and the beach. As beautiful as the beaches were in the West Bay, with stunning snorkeling and gorgeous sand, it became harder and harder to convince the family to leave the pool and head elsewhere. The pool and surrounding grounds were so well kept and secluded, that it felt as if we were totally private. With the outdoor music system, we had our very own atmosphere set to match our many moods. Dinner became the activity we all looked forward to the most, with everyone playing a role in either the prep, cooking or clean up. Our dinners ranged from grilled steak and fish tacos to rice and beans and lasagna. The house performed so well that it felt like home in no time.

But above all of the benefits that came from staying in such a beautiful home was the ability to get to know Kathy and her daughter Emily. They were never intrusive in any way. Instead, they were both incredibly gracious and generous in helping us plan our activities. Kathy  provided guided snorkeling and paddle boarding adventures and helped to organize our excursions. Emily offered to take pictures on our excursions and their dog Franklin quickly became part of the family.

We made so many incredible memories on this trip which could not have been possible without the care of our amazing hosts. Our favorite keepsake is the video that Emily compiled for us. We will treasure these memories and will be forever grateful for our time at Clearwater.

Owner's Response: Fred - Thanks so much for the awesome review and noticing the little things we do so that guests will have a comfortable stay and relaxing trip. We love the Sonos system too. Em and I had so much fun with your group; it was hard to say goodbye. You'll have to tell Gloria that I made Tim the best black beans with her secret spice. I have to get that recipe. We also purchased a new ladder so when you come back it will be a little easier to help de-nutting the coconut trees. Best wishes to you all on the upcoming wedding. Cheers Kathy.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The Clearwater House was even better than expected and Kathy is the perfect hostess. We travel a lot and do not generally go back to the same place twice. I would make re-visiting Clearwater House an exception. We recently went down to Grand Cayman with our two teenagers and 2 other couples. We all had plenty of room in the house to spread out as well as a central location to all hang out. We were close to the local attractions, restaurants, and grocery stores in the West Bay and Seven Mile Beach area. The house was nicely decorated, had plenty of beach/pool towels, washer/dryer, nice kitchen, and was a couple minutes walk to the beach. Kathy shared restaurant tips and activity tips with us and made us feel right at home for the week we were there. It was a perfect island get away and I would happily go back.

Owner's Response: Lisa - thanks so much for the great review. I'm glad you appreciated the location of the house; being on Boggy Sand Rd truly does make for a great island experience. I would love for your group to come back to Cayman; I so enjoyed our chats in the gazebo and my paddle with Kathryn. Cheers!

It was the perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Clearwater in May. My husband and I went with our 2 month old baby, 3 year old daughter, my husband's parents, and a babysitter. We had a vacation to remember! The pictures taken of the property might be even more beautiful in person. We did not spend much time inside, but everything we needed was available for us in the house. The master bath was recently redone and the shower was amazing! The layout was perfect for our kids and for all to have privacy. We spent all day outside, even though the inside is beautiful. There are floats and pool toys as well as plenty of seating. We didn't have a problem with bugs at night. We did spend most of our nights playing games in the gazebo which is all screened in and has a fan. We used the grill in the gazebo several nights as well. Walking to a few places was important to us, and we definitely found a few restaurants just a few minutes away. Other restaurants that are on the ocean are just a short car ride. We made many trips to the grocery store (2 minute drive or walkable) , did several beach excursions, drove the whole island. We never had been to Grand Cayman but now we see why people visit so frequently. The water is unreal!

We would definitly recommend this property to anyone. Whether it be a bunch of couples wanting to get away or for a family with kids. We thought we were crazy to travel with 2 very little children, but once we arrived to Clearwater, there were no worries to be had! It was a week of laughter and relaxation, and we hope to go back again!

Owner's Response: Stephanie - I'm glad you had a relaxing time on your holiday and enjoyed our Cayman home. The sea in Cayman is special for sure and I think it is especially nice at our little area because we are at the very end of SMB and away from the harbor activity. I'm thrilled you noticed and commented our new master shower; we spent some time on that! I hope you come back to see us soon! Cheers, Kathy.

Perfect First Time Cayman Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has everything you could ask for, but Kathy is what makes the experience go above and beyond. To say she bends over backwards to accommodate her guests is an understatement. She’s the type of person who you ask where to find a tropical drink served in a coconut and after she calls around to all the local bar and restaurants to find out no one does, you come home to find her cutting the coconuts out of her own trees and cleaning them to bring you fresh coconut water and mai tais served in coconuts! It’d be easy to describe all the other ways Kathy made our stay wonderful as if it were a uniform approach to each family that rented the home; but it was clear from the beginning she spent the time to learn about our specific interests and reached beyond the minimum to make our stay special. The pictures on the website do not oversell. This is one of the few times a house exceeds the pictures on their website. The Clearwater House is clean, the décor is modernly beachy, and provides all the amenities you can hope for traveling to any vacation destination. While Clearwater House is not beach front, by walking only two minutes across the street, you can reach a beautiful private-feeling beach with excellent snorkeling only a few minutes from shore. We also found that by crossing a few rocks, you could reach Cemetery Beach – one of the more popular beaches on the island. It was our first stay on the island, and having driven through and spent some time in Georgetown and Seven Mile Island - they’re fun to drive through and see, but Boggy Sand Road is the best place on the island to be. The water and sand are beautiful and you get to enjoy the true island feel by just walking across the street and the rest of the island is only a quick drive away.

Owner's Response: Ryan - Thanks so much for the awesome review. I so enjoyed having your group and the boys. It was a vacation for me too. Thanks for cooking dinner on your last night. You are an excellent cook and I made the seared tuna a couple of days later and the spices you told me to use were on point. I hope you return so we can keep in touch. Cheers! Kathy

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a trip! The house is beautiful, well equipped and perfectly located. Kathy's keen attention to detail and appreciation of the finer things in life translate into a 5-star hotel experience for guests. You really only need to bring your bathing suit. We loved using the paddle boards to go out to the best snorkeling around where we saw many sea turtles. The kids ages 4-7 enjoyed exploring all the tide pools (crabs, fish, sea urchins) and we couldn't keep them out of the large pool in the backyard. A perfect Island lunch of grouper is a 5 minute walk from the house and the fun turtle farm is minutes away. The house is a quick car ride to the popular tourist destinations but in a quieter area that ensures a more peaceful and authentic experience, especially at the beach. Kathy is a wonderful and gracious host and we are happy to now call her a friend. Our group of 2 families (4 adults, 4 kids) had more than enough space. We not only will be back but are counting the days. I highly, highly recommend staying at Clearwater House!

Owner's Response: Courtney - Thanks so much for the great review. It is nice for you to recognize the comfort and amenities at our Cayman home. I like the guests to have everything they would have a home plus a bit more! I agree on location. We are spoiled being on Boggy Sand Road and so close to the great beach and snorkeling. Every day is something new. I enjoyed getting to know you, Eric and the boys. It was fun watching Garrett beat up on the coconut. He did great. Thanks for leaving the awesome bottle of wine. I was so surprised. I really look forward to your group coming back; it was a vacation for me too and I'd love to keep in touch with everyone!

Wow! An amazing place for families or groups

  • 5 of 5

This is hands done such an amazing place to stay, our family (9 adults) came to Cayman for 4 days and Kathy and Tim's home exceeded all of our expectations. The home had every single comfort, appliance, gadget, you would ever need. On top of all that, they also had everything you would need to spend a day at the beach, from chairs and coolers, to snorkel gear and paddle boards. Lastly, the service that Kathy provides is much better then you would get at any of the hotels on the island, she helped us with groceries, drinks, just about anything and everything we asked for. When we return to the island there is no question where we will stay. Thanks Kathy and Tim!
