The location of Clearwater House really is fantastic. 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". A grocery store, pharmacy, bank, liquor store and restaurants are withing walking distance. When you are ready for a night out, the corridor restaurants and amenities are only 3-5 miles away.

The home is light-filled and spacious. 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 plenty of 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 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 off-shore snorkeling that Seven Mile Beach has to offer. The U.S. Kittiwake reef and dive site is located straight out from Boggy Sand 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).

Also on site is a 1-bedroom studio that we call the Carriage House (sleeps 4). The Carriage House is occupied by the property’s caretaker but we can kick him out if you would like to rent this space along with the House to accommodate larger groups or special events. An extra per night rental fee, taxes, cleaning fee, etc. will apply to the Carriage House.

About Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond

We are from Dallas, Texas but love the warm weather and beach. Our many family beach vacations took us to Cayman a few years ago …and we knew this was it!

Grand Cayman 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 our valuable family time away from the crowds.

We have worked very hard to make CH 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

Cayman felt like home instantly. The people are friendly, the beaches are fantastic, the water is 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 - we knew it was Boggy Sand Road or nothing. Boggy Sand Beach is without a doubt our favorite part of Seven Mile Beach; absolutely stunning sunsets and wonderful snorkeling and marine life. We see so many great things at the beach and reef: sea turtles mating in the summer, vibrant coral and all kind of fish and other marine life.

We love that this location is quiet, relaxing and away from the more crowded parts of the Seven Mile Beach condo corridor and a fun night out is only a 5-7 minute drive away. Plus we can walk to Heritage Kitchen for great fresh fish and juices!

What makes this house unique

The pool and outdoor entertaining areas provide days and evenings of fun. A short walk down the picturesque Boggy Sand Road brings you to Boggy Sand Beach; to the right of the beach access point is a reef with the very best off-shore snorkeling on the island; to the left - sand and sun.

Grand Cayman Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

What a great time! The Clearwater House is everything you would expect from discussions with Kathy as well as viewing the web site. We brought part of our family down during our three week stay as well as asked some friends to join us. It was truly incredible.

I can only thank both Kathy and Tim for their hospitality as we will undoubtedly return.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We've traveled to many locations and rented many homes. This was easily our favorite. The house is well appointed with everything you need from towels & beach chairs to pots, pans, and pool toys. The beds are comfortable, the appliances are new, and our party of 7 was very comfortable in the house. The location is what really sets this property apart. You're a 2 minute walk to a beautiful, almost private, beach with fabulous snorkeling. We went on a snorkeling charter and it wasn't as good as the snorkeling off the beach. (The snorkeling gear at the house is top notch as well!) The pool is protected from the wind and in the shade in the afternoon and a perfect afternoon after a morning at the beach. Within a short walk is a great diner for breakfast and The Heritage Kitchen (a must try for lunch!) Kathy was a gracious & wonderful host. We had a hell travel day getting to Cayman with a 4 hour flight delay and Kathy had the fridge full, the beer on ice, and even ran out to pick us up dinner so we could unwind and start our vacation. She had great suggestions about places to go and things to see and generally just made our vacation that much better. I think the best endorsement I can give is that we'll definitely be back next year. Thanks for an awesome vacation and see you next year!

Owner's Response: Ryan - I loved meeting you and your group. Grand Cayman is a great place to relax but also the place get out, get active and explore and I'm glad your crew did it all. I took the SUP out to the Kittiwake the other day and thought of you guys. Good luck in Boston and thanks so much for the bottle of Le P'Tit Paysan. It was very, very good. Can't wait to sea you again!

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Best experience we've ever had! To the welcome lunch, rides throughout our stay, amenities abound, farewell warm croissants, and more toys than we could have used, Clearwater House is the best! Close to beach and your own private oasis back at the house! Kathy is the best and will make you feel like you are home! Don't hesitate to stay here!

Owner's Response: Linda - I'm glad you and your group had a good time at Clearwater House and more importantly in Grand Cayman. It would be great to see your group again in the summer so we can explore and enjoy the morning turtle activity with our coffee. Cheers and good luck with your other travel this year. Kathy

Property is very comfortable & well maintained, convenient to beach, groceries and other amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been happier with the house, the location (very quiet and private), the pool and the grounds. Very well maintained. Kathy is very attentive and makes sure her guests are well taken care of. She also is open to suggestions and takes action quickly if something needs attention. This was out 10th trip to Cayman and was probably our best trip much do to the facility. Plenty of water toys available for kids and adults. Masks, fins, snorkels, skim and boogie boards, paddle boards etc. The pool was in constant use by the grandchildren ages 5 to 16. We could not have asked for more.If we decide to visit Cayman again we will stay at Clearwater House.

Epic

  • 5 of 5

Even a month after our visit my children are still talking about our "beach house" and bringing back all of the wonderful memories that were created. The Grand Cayman is amazing however staying in a home where you feel like you at home takes your experience to another level. Kathy was more than accomidating and extremely helpful from the day we booked until the day we left. Our first impression of the house made us wonder if we were the first guests staying because honestly it is kept in fantastic shape. Kathy gave us recomindations when we asked and was always available for questions. There was not one detail overlooked from the bed linens to the beach equipment that the owner generously lets you borrow. This vacation and experience has set the bar and we are absolutely looking forward to booking in the near future. Thank you for opening up your home to us! Looking foward to our next adventure.

Owner's Response: Amanda - thanks so much for the great review. We loved having your group and I'm glad the wedding at the Ritz went beautifully for all. You'll have to tell the boys that I have their coloring and iguana sculpture displayed in my office; both were great gifts. We'd love to see you again soon. All the best, Kathy.

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.
