Present Moment is located in Bodden Town, on the sleepy southern side of Grand Cayman. Away from the maddening crowds of the Seven Mile Beach tourist area, Present Moment is a thoroughly modern beach home with a resort like feel. Named for the way we feel alive and “present” the moment we walk in, this villa has a special sense of peace and tranquility.
Present Moment is a wonderful home for extended families or two families traveling together. Although the ocean is a bit rougher on the south side, the beach is wide and loaded with sea life, coral, shells and sea glass. Children enjoy splashing at the shoreline, making sand castles and exploring all the treasures they find on the beach, but generally return to the resort style pool to swim. Swimming and snorkeling are possible behind the home, but we recommend only more experienced adults and older children do so. You will also want to wear water shoes when entering the ocean (not necessary on the beach) as there is a lot of coral, rocks and sea life. If you want to take the children to calmer, shallow waters to swim in the ocean, we recommend taking a day trip to Rum Point or one of the oceanfront restaurants on Seven Mile Beach.
Located just a short distance from the Turtle Nest Inn, one of the most popular “off the beaten path” hotels in Grand Cayman, Present Moment is situated on approximately 75 feet of wide, private beach and enjoys sweeping views of the crystal clear Caribbean sea. While secluded and away from the crowds of the Seven Mile Beach hotel area, Present Moment is centrally located and you are only about 30 minutes from virtually every other area of the island.
Between the airport and Present Moment there are several grocery stores at which you can stock up on food. There are also several local restaurants, such as Chester’s Fish Fry and the Grape Tree Café, that are within 5 minutes of the villa. Virtually any other restaurant on the island is within a 30 minute drive. The Botanical Gardens and Pirate Caves are also very close by.

About Molly Thomas
We are a family with young children living in the Tampa area. We fell in love with Grand Cayman while on vacation and soon found ourselves purchasing a vacation home there. When we decided to rent it out, we never imagined it would become so successful, and inspire us to purchase 3 more homes on this beautiful island! Present Moment was the second home we purchased.
Molly Thomas purchased this house in 2012
Why Molly Thomas chose Grand Cayman
We felt a sense of peace the moment we walked into this house. We loved the more secluded location, away from the more crowded areas, yet close enough that we didn't mind driving to town. The sea is a bit rougher in Bodden Town, which means you constantly hear the roar of the ocean. It is the best sound, isn't it? The beach is completely private and, although you need to wear shoes when entering the water, we love it. The beach combing is great - tons of coral, shells, sea glass and cool sea life among the rocks and coral at the shoreline. Our kids spend hours out there!
What makes this house unique
The huge, double sided infinity edge pool is definitely the showpiece of this home. It provides a resort like feel as well providing a wonderful place for kids and adults alike to congregate, play or relax. The ocean front hot tub is also amazing. We love it at night, where you can watch the moon rise or see shooting stars while soaking away your stress.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed at this home in December with six adults and two young children. The house sits on a quiet road on one side and the beach on the other. The kitchen is well equipped, and we used it to eat in most nights. The pool is right off the deck. There is also a hot tub, which can be used to heat the pool. The property managers are friendly and helpful. You can snorkel right off the beach, but it is shallow and rocky and there are many large sea urchins you will have to dodge when you walk out. There is a grocery store a short drive away. Traffic on the island can be quite congested and the roads are mostly two lane.
