Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Grand Cayman - #16 Tamarind Bay

2 Bedrooms, Den converts into 3rd bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Stunning views overlooking the beach, surf, waves, and sunsets.

Real Beachfront Living:

Situated on and fully fronting onto seven mile beach, our condo (#16 Tamarind Bay) is the entire second floor of a two-floor building (1,712 sq ft). The view overlooks the seawall, so you will enjoy watching the surf break on the beach as you look out upon the ocean. Relax with the sight and sound of the waves rolling upon the white sand beach.

All Rooms have Ocean & Beach Views:

The master bedroom, den, and living room have sliding glass doors that open onto the wide screened-in deck, which is directly above the beach. Relax in front of the large picture window and feel as if you are on the beach. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There are views of the ocean throughout, including the master, guest, den, and the open kitchen/dining/living area. There is a king bed in the master bedroom, a king bed and twin sofa sleeper in the guest bedroom, and a queen sofa sleeper in the den which can serve as a 3rd bedroom (separate from the living area).

The Beach, Pool, and Snorkeling:

Our beach is nice and it is all sand out into the water. Off shore there is mixture of sand, rock, and coral under the water. Most people like this since it attracts a lot of marine life. This makes the snorkeling directly in front of our condo very enjoyable. The beach in front of our place is fun and you can dig sand castles, make sculptures, sun bathe, play Frisbee, etc. All of the beaches in Cayman are public and you can explore them as you wish. Be sure to check out the hotel next door. They built an artificial reef and it attracts a lot of marine life. In our opinion, it is one of the funnest snorkeling spots for beginners or youth on Seven Mile Beach. We also have a beach front fresh water pool. You will be able to to take a dip in freshwater as soon as you get out of the ocean.

Sunsets:

Since the beach faces due west, the sunsets are spectacular. Be sure to watch for the rare 'green flash' at the last moment the sun disappears. Enjoy some wine and listen to the waves.

Amenities:

The condo also includes a full kitchen, washer/dryer, beach towels, Wi-Fi Internet (wired also available in the den), a Skype phone with unlimited calling to/from the U.S. and Canada, and a laser printer. There are large TV’s in both bedrooms and the den (two 42” plus one 32” LCD with HD/digital cable service). The front door has an electronic code lock, so you will not need to keep track of keys or cards during your stay.

Restaurants, shops, several nightclubs, and the gym are within walking distance, so a car is convenient but optional. There is good taxi service, small tourist buses cost $2 one way, and Andy’s Rent-A-Car rental agency is across the street. The Marriott, located just to the north, offers a full range of water sports/activities. Grand Cayman is known globally for its scuba diving and there are many dive operators on the island that offer training, equipment, and transportation.

Arrival:

Kathy, Tamarind Bay’s property manager, lives on-site and will greet you when you arrive.

Summary:

In summary, stay with us to relax and enjoy this beautiful and rare 'totally on seven mile beach' condo. We (Michael & Kandi) look forward to welcoming you to our home.

About Michael McMenamy

We plan on retiring to our home here in the Cayman Islands, but alas, until then we reside in South Dakota most of the time. This place with its view renews us. In the mornings, time slips by as we drink coffee and watch the beach through our picture window. Michael relaxes with scuba diving & snorkeling in the clear & warm waters. Kandi relaxes with her books in the shade of an umbrella on the beach. Our day pauses for a glass of wine while watching the sunset. We usually serve dinner on the screened-in lanai. It is a time to watch dusk roll in and enjoy listening to the waves. It is our hope that you will find our beach home as much of a blessing in your life as it is in ours. Cheers, Michael & Kandi.

Michael McMenamy purchased this condo in 2007

Why Michael McMenamy chose Grand Cayman

We love Seven Mile Beach because of the relaxing beauty of white sand, clear warm water, the sight and sound of the surf, and spectacular sunsets. The Cayman Islands remain a British territory, English is the native language, and the US dollar is accepted. This is a beautiful, safe, and modern island. Seven Mile Beach faces due west, providing spectacular sunsets that very few beaches offer.

What makes this condo unique

Stunning views throughout. This condo sits on the beach and is true oceanfront living. It is the entire second floor (the top floor) of a two-story building. You are able to watch the surf break upon the beach (since you overlook the sea wall) and will enjoy top floor privacy. There is world-class snorkeling right outside, a fresh water pool, beach chairs, and umbrellas. Sit on the screened-in deck or in front of the picture window and enjoy being on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Michael, what an amazing place you and Kandi have! The view was beautiful – even the kids watched the ocean instead of the tv! I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to stay at your condo for our week in Grand Cayman. It was everything and more! This was the best vacation I’ve ever had. One of the best things was the lack of noise that is usually present in a hotel with kids running up and down the hallways and doors slamming shut. The only thing we heard in the morning as we awoke was the ocean waves hitting the beach. The people in Grand Cayman could not have been friendlier and that goes for the staff at all of the restaurants we went to as well as cab and bus drivers. Every day was perfect weather. We went horseback riding, to the Turtle Farm, rented wave runners, paddleboards, kayaks, a Hobie Cat, went on a sunset sail and spent a lot of time snorkeling - and we always had a glass of wine in the evening. We will never forget this trip and hope to get to Grand Cayman again sometime soon! Again, thank you so much for the use of the condo!

Great condo with AMAZING views!

  • 5 of 5

My first time at Grand Cayman Islands for my 40th Birthday celebration. The condo is very clean, stocked and had the most amazing view right on the beach. It's breathtaking! We had Kirk Market deliver groceries prior to our arrival. I ordered a few times and enjoyed cooking on the outside grills. I enjoyed being a beach/pool bum during the day and the nightlife at night. I loved Coconut Joe's for drinks and appetizers. My birthday dinner at Copper Falls Steakhouse and the steak was delicious! We enjoyed Decker's All-You-Can-Eat Lobsters on Tues/Sat nights. A Salsa night at the Wharf Restaurant and Bar. A soca/reggae night and dinner at Royal Palms Beach Club. Breakfast was cheap and really good at Cimboco. The locals are great and very welcoming! It was a relaxing week and very enjoyable. I will definitely return with my family. Hope to visit again soon Michael & Kandi!

Great condo with exceptional service

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several VRBO properties with good results, so our expectations were high. This met and exceeded all expectations. The view is amazing. The quiet end of the beach is almost private. The dive shop, literally right next to the condo, was great and incredibly convenient. The owners were very gracious and forthcoming about some nearby construction. Due to their honesty and flexibility, we knew what to expect and planned accordingly. The FAQ that was provided was incredibly helpful for finding things in the area. Thanks for helping us experience Grand Cayman in style.

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a stay at this beautiful condo and already can't wait to go back. I am not one to stay at the same place more than once but I know that all we would do if we stayed somewhere else is compare it to this condo. Our group of 2 families (4 adults and children ages 4-9) fell in love with the views, location, decor, and amenities that were offered. By the end of the trip, our kids were calling the condo "home" and that is truly what it felt like. We ate the majority of our meals at the condo and particularly enjoyed grilling by the pool while the kids swam after enjoying the gorgeous sunsets. All of the pictures and descriptions are 100% accurate and communication was prompt and helpful. This was our first trip to Grand Cayman and we fell in love with the island as well. So much to do and we always felt safe. We can't wait to return! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

This Picture Makes Me Miss this Place ... Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I reluctantly write this review because I don't know if I want anyone else to know about how perfect this place was! It looks just like in the pictures and it sounds like waves and smells like fresh air and feels like the perfect, relaxing, comfortable, beautiful vacation! Why stay anywhere else? We smiled when we walked back from having lunch at the Marriott restaurant down the beach where everyone is crowded together on their lounge chairs and we saw our private beach and pool waiting for us.

What a wonderful stay away from the cold of winter

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay. Mike and Kandi’s place on Seven Mile Beach has the most amazing views of the clear water and clean, white sand beach. The sunsets on the beach with a glass of wine are fantastic. Sitting on the lanai with a cup a coffee in the morning is pure relaxation. The decor and comfort of this condo is unsurpassed in our travels and stays.

Lounging during the day on the beach or by the pool is never a problem with this private condo as there is always plenty of furniture to relax on. Their condo is located close enough to walk to Georgetown but far enough away to not be bothered by the cruise ship crowd. It is also a short walk to the grocery store, liquor store or a very nice bakery with almond croissants.

We highly recommend this place and look forward to another trip.
