About Heidi Hayes

My family is an original owner of a vacation condo at this location since it was built. I have spent many years enjoying this beautiful and lovely island, and I now share it with wife and children. We love to snorkel, swim, soak up the warm Caribbean sun, rest, and watch the amazing sunsets. We always look forward to our trips to Cayman, and find it hard to leave behind. This is a special place.

Why Heidi Hayes chose Grand Cayman

Our condo has been updated with above average finish out. The decor is beautiful, featuring an art collection and much more.

What makes this condo unique

We can provide 3 or 6 bedrooms, accommodating 6 to 12 people. This is hard to find in Cayman.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this condo for Spring Break. Heidi was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had and also sent suggestions after we booked. We all loved everything about the condo and the Cayman Islands. It has 3 nice size bedrooms with very comfortable beds and nice linens. I loved all the built-ins to store your clothes and shoes so they weren't scattered all over the place. Also, great water pressure for showers and nice cabinets in bathroom to store your items. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need as well. Loved sitting on the big porch in the mornings and late afternoon. It was amazing to have your own private beach where you can always find a chair. The snorkeling was amazing right there! We saw tons of fish, stingrays, crabs and so much more just in the cove. It was also nice that the water in that area is always calm - so perfect for younger children. I do highly recommend you bring swim shoes for everyone though! Also, the pool was a huge hit with a swim up bar. You can open a tab and then get whatever you want during the week. This was by far our best vacation ever because of all the things to do in Cayman and just how beautiful this Island is. We snorkeled with sting-rays, visited the Turtle Farm, went to Hell, went on a nighttime submarine dive and so much more!! I loved that we felt safe walking around and many restaurants within walking distance. I could go on and on - but I would recommend this condo to anyone planning a trip to the Cayman Islands. When we come back again - this will be the place for us. Thank you again for sharing your Condo with us!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of 4! Having space to spread out was great and the deck was awesome. Having a washer and dryer worked out great as we could pack smaller carry-on bags. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could need.

We were able to walk most places - dinner, grocery store and shopping - but also took the public bus several times as well as a taxi. Some of the restaurants we hit were Coconut Joes, The Wharf, Peppers, Craft and XQ's - all were good.

Despite it being a school vacation week, the pool and beach were never crowded and we could always find a chair. The snorkeling off the beach was really good - my son got some great pics with his GoPro.

I would highly recommend this condo!

terrific place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there several weeks ago and it was terrific. The location is ideal with some of the best snorkeling on the island right off property. Plenty of restaurants are within walking distance and I would recommend you skip renting a car. Will definitely be back

Best of both worlds on Seven Mile Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful time in Grand Cayman and were very pleased to come back to this condo as our home base each day. The pictures don't do the condo justice - it is even nicer in person. The bedding was very comfortable, the condo is exceedingly well appointed and very clean.

The location at the south end of Seven Mile Beach is ideal. Although one reviewer didn't like the separation from the rest of Seven Mile by the coral outcropping, it was actually one of the reasons we chose this condo. With two young children, and having only traveled to "sleepy" Caribbean destinations before, we were concerned about the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach. That tiny separation kept the foot traffic in front of the condo to a minimum, but was very easy to get around when WE wanted to explore the rest of Seven Mile. It made Sunset Cove a very quiet oasis in the middle of a busy vacation destination. Prior to choosing this location, we were contemplating VRBO listings in Rum Point or East End, but we would readily come back to Sunset Cove if Grand Cayman is in our plans again.

Heidi was great to deal with, and very responsive to our needs and minor issues. The information provided by email after booking was very useful and pointed us in the right direction for fun activities, good restaurants, shopping and grocery stores.

We tried out Fidel Murphy's, pizza at XQ's, Coconut Joe's, Duke's, and of course Billy Bones. The best "bang for the buck" was definitely Coconut Joe's, and we went there for a breakfast and a supper. The 2 for $12 margaritas were awesome! I was too lazy to make my own coffee on this trip, so I started each day with a short walk to Icoa's Fine Foods for some very good coffee and even better desserts. A bit pricy, but worth it for the convenience.

We did rent a car for the week, so got to explore Rum Point, Hell, Cayman Islands Turtle Farm, Georgetown for the shopping and took a Captain's Marvin's boat to Stingray City. We also celebrated a birthday with a nighttime Atlantis submarine tour. My wife and sister-in-law both agreed that the snorkeling just in front of the condo was FAR better than the snorkel sites we stopped at on our boat excursion. Plenty of tropical fish, a stingray or two, and an even a barracuda.

All in all, a great place. Even the proximity to the sketchy Treasure Island Hotel should not be a deterrent. The people staying there were just as friendly as everyone else on this island. A++

Great Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

Just went on a couples retreat to this great place. Can't ask for a better location, great snorkeling just outside the protected swim area and a dive shop right down the street. The kitchen is supremely outfitted for cooking but I will say the grocery store is a bit of a walk. I would recommend a car or taking the bus. Great shopping a quick drive from the house into Georgetown. The beds are very comfortable and the porch is huge and offers great sunset views every night.

The dive shop at Red Sail was great, we completed our PADI certification our first 2 days and went diving at the Kittywake the 3rd day. Highly recommend that one if you are diving on your trip. The turtle farm on the north end was also really cool. We used Captain Brian's to go to Stingray City and it was a great deal. There are so many great restaurant's nearby and Heidi gives you a list to work from. We ate at the condo for breakfast and lunch to stay on budget and went all out for dinner. The Wharf was excellent and sat us on the beach for candle light dinner.

This is a great island with tons to offer and this condo is impossible to beat at this price. Guaranteed to have a great time!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic family vacation! The condo was clean, neat, and very comfortable for our family of 6. It was conveniently located near a grocery market, restaurants, and the diving operation we used. The sunsets were some of the most beautiful you will ever see from the balcony which is waterfront! We loved being able to cook some of our own meals in the fabulous kitchen that has granite counters and is very well equipped! We also enjoyed having a washer and dryer to use during our stay. With the ability to wash, we didn't need to pack as many clothes.

The beach was quiet and had great snorkeling! It was never crowded and we saw lobsters in the cove and many other fish in and around the rock cove area. There is also a reef just off the beach for even more snorkeling adventures! If you want to take long walks on the beach, it is easy to walk down the sidewalk to about the second or third hotel and then get on the long stretch of the beach. We even went down to a hotel where we personally rented jet skis, paddle boards, and snorkeled...lots of fun! So there are plenty of rentals available within easy walking distance.

The private pool with a swim up bar was very nice! The food was good and they served all types of drinks at the bar.

We rented a car and we were able to park at the condo parking area. But we walked to Coconut Joe's for breakfast many times. If you don't want to rent a car at the airport for the entire stay, there is a rental company just across the street next to Coconut Joe's Restaurant.

The owners of this condo have done a fabulous job with the decorations, set up, and stocking of the condo. They were very helpful in giving tips on restaurants, dive operations, and other fun things to do during our stay. We highly recommend this condo for your future vacation!
