Old Man Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

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 least the ones we could afford!

We also preferred being away from the crowds.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We spent a little over a week in this apartment in Old Man Bay and we had a fabulous time. It's a great set up for small children (we have a 6 year old with a physical disability and it was perfect) and the beachfront location is awesome. We were there over easter week and the beach was nearly deserted whereas every other beach on the island was packed. I cook a lot and the kitchen was well stocked and ideal for cooking three meals a day. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was impeccably clean. The washer dryer was super convenient, as was the cable TV. The view from the balcony was really wonderful. We liked the location - not touristy but easy to drive to Morritt's and Rum Point. We also went to the botanic gardens which are amazing. I recommend Hurley's grocery store over Foster's especially for meat, fish and produce. Definitely bring water shoes because there is a lot of coral on the shore. The snorkelling right in the lagoon was pretty impressive and perfect for our 7 year old to snorkel on his own. The lagoon is also great for swimming laps and the roads out of the apartment are safe for running for a woman alone. Ernie (the owner) was very responsive and helpful.

We almost never go to the same location twice on vacation, and we are already planning to return . Cayman is fabulous and this apartment is the perfect getaway. We are all in withdrawal!

Incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune of staying here for two months this past winter. This unit is very nice and well maintained. Since we were there for two months, we obviously did a lot of cooking in the unit. The pots and pans are not the flimsy little things that burn everything when you try to cook. The only thing missing was a cookie sheet! All the appliances were in good working order. Good supply of beach towels...plenty of linens. Seems as if they made it for your convenience! Couldn't ask for more. They called after we checked in to make sure all was ok and if we needed anything. Very accommodating! We prefer to stay here as Georgetown gets to be a bit crazy. There are several eating places nearby if you want to go grab a bite. Not wall to wall people!! We loved it here and hope to come back!

Wonderful Condo, OK Beach, Great Views

  • 5 of 5

As other reviewers have said, this condo really did have it all. Very comfy for our fam of 4. The balcony and its view were great for morning coffee, board games with the kids and just relaxing and listening to the waves. Inside the unit it had everything we needed for a full week, including some extras that were very nice: beach umbrella & chairs, beach towels, extra flippers and snorkels, lots of linens, plenty of kitchen accessories, the list goes on. It had strong wifi and my boys loved their room with the game system, twin beds and their own bathroom.

The pool was a wonderful spot and we spent several hours in it and relaxing poolside. I would recommend that bldg management and/or owners have it cleaned more than once a week...during our Sat - Sat stay the pool tech only came once, on Friday. During the week, we scooped a few dead crabs out (I get it, it's the Caribbean) and it collected quite a bit of sand and debris even though rinse buckets and hoses were available...just unaviodable when you have kids about. All but one group that we met on the property had kids.

The beach in front of the condo was indeed rocky but not impossible to walk on. Compared to 7 Mile, our little cove seemed less than boys chose not to swim in it much. We also did not snorkel in front of the condo although there are some great spots nearby. During our particular week they had several days of rough/choppy seas so we kept to more kid friendly areas like Rum Point and 7 Mile beach for snorkeling.

If quiet and peaceful and a good deal for your money are important to you, I highly reco staying in Old Man Bay. This condo was lovely and we would stay again. Owners were very responsive to our pre-trip questions and follow-up after departure when we thought we left something behind. Go, enjoy!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to get away from the elbow to elbow spacing of Seven Mile Beach - this is the place. You get the beach and all the serenity that goes with it to yourself. You will lack nothing in terms of amenities, and if you cook - it will save you a lot of money as restaurants are expensive. My family had a great stay. The place is immaculate and the owners were 100% responsive to every little need or request.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. The pictures are very representative of the condo and grounds, condo actually felt a little more spacious than it looked. It was very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The grounds were quiet and felt private, we were in the pool daily and never shared it with anyone. My son (7 yo) liked snorkeling in the small cove, not exactly like a reef but there were a few fish and urchins and he was quite impressed.

Enjoyed a trip to Rum Point, and on an iffy weather day went to the botanical gardens which we liked, the kids were excited to seek out the rare blue iguana. Had dinner several times from Kurt's Korner which had very friendly if somewhat relaxed service and good food. Some gracious locals helped me negotiate my way into the attached liquor store a few minutes after closing time.

Ernie the owner was responsive and very helpful, we're already thinking about a trip back next winter.

This was the cleanest condo I have ever rented. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable for a family of 5. The area was private and quiet. My only disappointment, and it has nothing to do with the condo, is that the beach alcove was very rocky. Great for sitting, relaxing and admiring the view but not for recreation.
