CAYMAN ISLANDS DIVERS PARADISE 1ST FLOOR OCEANFRONT CONDO

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Grand Cayman

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This 1st floor, ocean front condo at Bonnie's Arch condominiums is truly a diver’s paradise, with direct access to the ocean and the pool. Bonnie's Arch dive site and Wall Dives are accessible directly from the property. There is something for everyone whether you enjoy relaxing by the pool in a chaise lounge reading your favorite book or snorkeling directly in front of the condo amongst the beautiful coral reefs or, taking the short 5 minute swim out to Bonnie’s Arch to experience a world class dive. EIGHT dive sites accessible right from the shore at Bonnies Arch. There are dive operations within approximately 1/4 mile from condo.

This condo is custom-decorated with new furnishings and a fully equipped kitchen (If you like to cook don’t miss buying fresh caught fish from the fisherman in George Town, but go early because once the fish are gone you will have to wait for the next morning). Quiet and secluded with only 12 units in the Complex. It’s only 12 minutes from Owen Roberts International airport, less than 5 minutes to popular Cemetery Beach and reef at the north end of exquisite 7 Mile Beach, 2 minutes to Hell. You can also book a dive/snorkel package to Sting Ray City, a unique day trip where you can view the reef and swim with Stingrays. The Boatswain’s Beach adventure park and Turtle Farm is less than a mile away.

Here you can swim with the dolphins and experience the 23 acre marine park. There are numerous restaurants within 5 minutes including the fabulous Pappagallo’s as well as Alfresco, Calypso Grill, Cracked Conch, Dock bar and grill at Morgan’s Harbor, Fisherman’s Reef and Schooner’s, there’s even a Domino’s Pizza and Subway right down the road. Of course there are many more world class restaurants to be found in George Town and on seven mile Beach which is only 10 minutes away.

Here in Grand Cayman you can do as much or as little as you want. .Whether it’s horseback riding on the beach, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, swimming with dolphins, exploring Pedro St. James, visiting world renowned stingray city or the world’s only turtle farm, or just sitting by the pool relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the Caribbean sun.

Why Owner chose Grand Cayman

We chose this unit becasue of it's location and it dircet access to the ocean. With the unit being just north of Seven Mile Beach, meaning its only a few minutes to get to the shops and restaurants. From the patio you can see all the way down seven mile beach into Georgetown. We are also a few minutes away from Cemetery Beach which has become our favorite beach on the island for laying in the sand and snorkeling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We completely enjoyed our vacation to Grand Cayman. The location of this condo is fabulous... We scheduled our diving through Dive Tec. Which was conveniently located right down the street from the condo. Also tried many snorkel sites and loved Cemetery Beach the best for its convenient location. The condo was nicely furnished and so very comfortable. We are already planning our next visit, can’t wait to go back.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION CONDO!!!

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was exceptionally clean, had all the amenities (everything in the kitchen, toilet paper, paper towel and even a cell phone to make local calls for excursions/reservations). We had my husband and 5 kids and everyone had a comfortable bed to sleep on. We loved having the pool right outside our door, the kids were either at Beach all day and then jumped in the pool. They even provided us with 2 shaded beach chairs which we took to the ocean outlook by the diving ladder and watched the sunset. My husband did a lot of snorkeling from the diving ladder at condo and saw some great fish (Barracuda)!! We just had the best time! Great location, close to Grocery store, cemetery beach and the turtle farm!! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CONDO!!!

Good value, great service

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Terri's condo during our wedding anniversary trip for 4 days in late July. This was our first time in the Caymans, but we traveled to other Caribbean islands extensively, including a four year stint as a house owners in Curacao. Having been in Terri's shoes as an absentee owner of a rental property in the island, we can only appreciate the condition the condo was in and the service we received. She was very responsive from the day one, answered all our questions via emails or phone calls and the information package was excellent. This made planning our trip very easy, considering the fact that we had only 4 days, including 3 days of scuba diving and good advance planning was essential.

The condo itself was larger than we expected, well appointed and very clean. Everything worked, and having local cell phone was a nice touch. Family member of a local property manager showed up on the first day to make sure we are OK and gave us plenty of local knowledge.

The location worked out for us great, since we very mostly looking for diving, not the beach. Everything is close in Grand Cayman, roads are good and rental cars are inexpensive, so the being outside of George Town was not a issue. The island is generally very expensive, even by Caribbean standards, so Terri's offering is a very fair deal for the money. Having to deal with a 25% island tax on the rental doesn't make things easier for anybody. On the other hand, the island is very clean and considered safe, so at least some of these taxes go for a good use (or so we hope...).

We did not try to dive from the condo's community ladder, there was too much of wave action but there are other shore dive sites nearby, with much easier access. Most dive boats depart from the nearby Cayman Yacht Club, so again the location worked for us.

We would definitely rent this condo again, we are already in early stages of planning for another trip next year.

Owner's Response: Kris, We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us and we very much look forward to having you stay with us again! Hopefully you will be able to dive at the complex next time as it is truly not to be missed.

Just for information's sake, the exchange rate is 25% (USD to CI) it's not an island tax per say.

A Great Vacation in a Great Place

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter and I enjoyed our stay immensely! The condo has everything one might need, and is very comfortable and well appointed. Loved the location away from some of the 7-mile hustle and bustle but easy enough to get down there. The whole process of reserving, renting, getting in and staying was so easy. Highly recommended! Pam was also very helpful as a neighboring condo had an issue getting locked out and she worked to help them even though she wasn't managing that unit.
One small related note not about the condo/owners: if you use a grocery buying service as was recommended…make sure you check that all of the food arrives when you get in. This isn't on the owners or Pam in anyway of course…we just realized a bit after arrival that an item was not delivered, and we're not able to get any help/satisfaction from the vendor other than telling us that we weren't looking in the right part of the bare freezer or blaming the cleaners. Just do a quick inventory when you first arrive if you do order groceries that way (which WAS helpful despite the issue and the $65 delivery charge).

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We put a lot of time and effort into making sure that our unit is a wonderful place to stay with a wide variety of amenities .You are the first of our guests to use the grocery buying service and I'm sorry to hear that you had a problem. If you don't mind forwarding the info to me I will see if I can continue to work on the problem and see what I can do about getting you a refund for the missing item or items.

We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Wonderful quiet little place by the sea!

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was immaculate, with all the amenities you could possibly imagine. The manager of the property, Pam, was a cell phone call away (cell phone included). Don't be put off by the dowdiness of the front door area; the rest of the property is great and well taken care of. It may look far away from Georgetown on the map, but it's only 15 minutes away by car. We loved the place!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. Funny you should mention the dowdiness of the entry way to the condo as it is scheduled for a face lift latter this summer. Hope to welcome you back soon.

Family time on Grand Cayman

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I with out two adult sons spent the week before Christmas at this ocean side condo. It was the perfect location on the island and a beautiful setting. The condo was very spacious and had all the amenities we needed. We loved walking out to the ocean and swimming and snorkeling a short distance from the condo. Lots of wonderful restaurants within a few miles. In fact, we never even wanted to go to 7 mile beach. We had everything we needed and wanted on the West Bay. We had a fabulous time and hope to return again.

Close to many activities, yet quiet location

  • 4 out of 5
Loved the location of this condo and not a bad view from ground floor patio either. For Scuba Divers like my husband and I it was the perfect place. Diving at the back of the property. Our favorite bar, Macabuca, just a short drive up the road. Near grocery stores, activities for the kids like the turtle petting farm and "swim with dolphins" place and several great restaurants. Not far from Seven Mile beach either. Almost every night we parked at Governor's beach and walked several miles under the stars, past all the pretty hotels on one side and the gently shooshing surf on the other, stopping in at a bar here and there. In the day it was diving, diving, diving, often at Macabuca (yup, dive, then get out and you are right there for a beer and a yummy lunch (everything there is of high quality ingredients, sold, to my mind, so cheap I don't know how they make money).
We drove around the island one day and frankly I think this is the side of the island to be on. If you want to get away from the crowds, drive away. If you want to be amidst all the restaurants and amenities, your close to them. If you want a quiet nights sleep, you'll get it at this condo. The decor isn't high end Ritz-Carlton, but it isn't bad either. The master bedroom is large with a working ac in it. My only complaint there was that the fitted sheets originally put on the king bed kept slipping up and off the ends, these should be thrown out, they just don't work any more. But we went into the closet and put a different pair on, voila, sheets that stayed on.
If I'd had kids I might have been a little unsure of that second room. It DOES have it's own bathroom, just like the master bedroom does, but the ac in there was iffy, and the room cramped with a small double bed plus a set of bunk beds. Ok for uncomplaining, adventurous kids, not so much for the "gotta have it perfect" type.
Loved the kitchen, it is good sized, bright and airy and open to the small living room, looking straight out the glass door to patio beyond. From inside the condo there is no view out the window. If you are looking for someplace to step in and take your breath away, this isn't it. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place, with a price tag that will allow you to be out and about spending your money where you should be, at activities and restaurants, and yet a place you will like coming back to at night for a good rest, a handy kitchen, and a nice patio view, this is it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It is sometimes through this process that we learn that we have a misbehaving appliance. We had the AC unit in the 2nd bedroom serviced and all is now working as it should. We have also replaced those slippery sheets that kept popping off the corners of the mattress (they were really pretty but apparently just not functional). We work hard at making our condo an enjoyable place for our guests to stay. Clean, stocked, TV, fully a/c’d, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer IN UNIT, great view, very comfy, free WiFi.

Hope to see you back in the future!
