About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Welcome to On The Bay Condo, located on the ocean’s edge in Old Man Bay, Grand Cayman Island. This is a truly private and tranquil resort, with a lovely white sandy beach, private swimming cove, pool and, of course, the magnificent aqua-blue water of the Caribbean all at your convenience.

As pristine as the location is, this Condo is only 30 minutes from Owen Roberts International Airport in George Town, and just minutes from various restaurants, water sports, snorkeling, scuba diving and sailing trips.

This two bedroom, two bath Condo sleeps six and is fully equipped to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. As in the rest of the island, a rental car is a must, but there are no worries about parking. Once you're here you won’t want to stray too far anyway. So come and be a part of the true Cayman experience.

About Ernie & Virginia Volpe

We are a happily married couple (1983) and live in southern New Jersey near Philadelphia. We met in college (Villanova) a long time ago!

Ernie & Virginia Volpe purchased this condo in 2006

Why Ernie & Virginia Volpe chose Cayman Islands

We were fortunate enough to travel to Cayman once per year for business reasons, and quickly realized how much we liked the Caymanian people. We were comfortable anywhere we went on the island. So, we decided to look for our own place in 2006, and found an out-of-the-way gem in On The Bay. It is built much nicer than any of the Seven Mile Beach resorts we looked at...at least the ones we could afford!

We also preferred being away from the crowds.

Great place, with everything needed for a good stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo in August . The apartment layout is perfect for family with 2 kids or even 2 families - 2 separate bathrooms make it easier. This apartment has everything needed for perfect stay, owners did really a great job to provide all necessary stuff . I rented many condos and houses in Cayman , and this one is the best out of all of them. Building located in quiet part of the island , it has elevator. There is pool in the complex, and the natural pool , protected by coral reef. On North site is really hard to find any place with good water entry, thus, this natural pool is really big plus .

Many Thanks to Ernie and Virginia for very good accommodation you provided!!

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a week in Paradise. The condo was perfect for my family of four. 10 and 15 year olds shared the super large bedroom and loved having their own bathroom. The master bath and bedroom were perfect too. Kitchen had all the amenities plus more. Super clean and perfect location.

The snorkeling right on beach was awesome. Saw all sorts of tropical fish including a lion fish. The pool was super clean and very refreshing. We liked being a few spots back from the beach so the wind was not so strong. Would go back again for sure.

A little slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could wake up here every morning! We had a great time at this very comfortable condo. Many days we had the pool and the beach to ourselves. The condo was very clean and well stocked with items we used everyday like the coffee pot, toaster and blender. Ernie checked in with us when we arrived to make sure everything was ok as did the property manager, Mitzi. We enjoyed being on the quieter side of the island and visited many of the restaurants on the East Side - Tukka, Eagle Rays, The Italian Kitchen, The Lighthouse and Over the Edge. A car is necessary for your stay here but it gives you the freedom to go anywhere you want on the island,. We highly recommend Star Fish Point, Rum Point, QE II Botanic Gardens and the Cayman Turtle Farm. We highly recommend staying here!

Spacious, centrally located and beautiful views of the reef.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for providing a well equipped unit for a fantastic stay in Grand Cayman. The only thing missing upon our arrival was a coffee maker, which was broken by the previous tenants and was replace the next day.

The North Shore is a wonderful area to get away from the crowds. Being snorklers, the location of Old Man Bay is in the middle of everything. Car rental is a necessity to take advantage of this location. We could get to our favorite snorkel spots at Cayman Kai beach, Star fish point, Spotts Beach and Eden Rock within 10-15 minutes. There's always someplace good to snorkel if you pay attention to the wind direction. When the wind is coming out of the Northeast, it's hard to snorkel from the North Shore. On the Bay Condo has a little "lagoon" that provides a barrier so snorkeling is possible even on high wind days and the lagoon has fish ( angel fish, jacks, porcupine and others).

The balcony on the unit was wonderful for morning and evening meals and sunset views. I can't say enough about this location and condo.

On our next visit to GCM we hope to stay at this unit again. Thank you Ernie and Virginia!!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough how wonderful our stay was at this property. My husband and I are still in awe of our amazing vacation here. The condo is completely clean, spacious, and comfortable. We had breakfast every morning on the balcony overlooking the incredible view. While the pictures here are beautiful, in person the views are surreal. It was completely serene sitting by the pool and on the beach. It felt like our private oasis. The location is also wonderful. Just a short drive north to get to Rum Point, and a little further to find Starfish beach. We also like to drive into Seven Mile Beach to check out the shops and restaurants, and we didn't mind the 30-40 min drive where you can see great views of the water and homes along the way. There is no doubt we want to return to this fantastic property! What a dream vacation!
