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 Old Man Bay
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.

Everything You Could Want or Need
Just got back from a week at Old Man Bay condo #206 - we had a fantastic trip, packing a lot of activities and beach time into our days. First off, the owners, Ernie and Virginia, have created an amazing oasis in their beachside home, filling it with everything a vacationer could want or need. The pictures really don't do the home justice - it was spacious, clean, and comfortable with great beachy decor. Secondly, the location was perfect. You are away from the crowds and traffic and close to great beaches and activities. Must dos close by: Stingray City (boats leave from Rum Point), Bioluminescent Bay kayaking (at night from Rum Point), and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park are 5-15 minutes away. Not too far: Pedro St James Castle (ask for Stacy Eden Hurlston as your guide - he is descended from the original owners of this oldest home on GC). The beaches nearby were great - if you like beachcombing, this is a fantastic place to visit - we found sea fans, sea beans, sea glass (even some marbles!), urchin tests, sponges, coral (SO much!), and shells. Snorkeling is good, too. (We don't dive but hear it is amazing off GC.) Restaurants are great on the island - we had a car for the week so we were able to check out things near and far. We LOVED Kaibo at Rum Point, but also Tukka in East End (go feed the frigate birds at 5 each afternoon), Eagle Rays (sister restaurant to Tukka), Over the Edge (get the coconut shrimp) just 2 minutes from the condo, Macabuca at the Cracked Conch in West Bay for a sunset, Calypso Grill at Morgan Harbour in West Bay, and Sunshine Grill in the Seven Mile Beach area. Best of all was coming back each day to this fabulous home. Thank you, Ernie and Virginia for your hospitality. We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is obvious that you made the most of your time on Cayman, and we are so happy that you feel the same way about our home as we do. You are always welcome to return!

Great location in well equipped condo
This condo was located in an ideal location on Grand Cayman if you are looking for solitude, but not too far from everything. 10-minutes to Run Point, 15-minutes to the East End and 30-minuets to Georgetown/Airport. Lots of beach towels, a couple chairs and a fully equipped kitchen made his the perfect rental for us.
Great place, with everything needed for a good stay
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!!
comfortable with all the amenities needed!
Perfect vacation getaway
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!
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!
