BEACHFRONT (ON THE WATER) WITH STUNNING VIEW!

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

THIS PICTURE MAKES ME MISS THIS PLACE ... PERFECT!

  • 5 out 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 out 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.

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was everything we hoped for and more... Directly on the beach, all amenities, clean, comfortable.... We loved it. We were only 2 girls and the condo could have accomodated many more. The beds were comfortable and the screened in porch directly on the water was a favorite spot for morning coffee and watching sunsets.
Within walking distance to the main road for bus and taxi access.
I would highly recommend this condo!

CAYMAN GET-A-WAY

  • 5 out of 5
Better than we expected…. Larger than we expected…… Great location for everything. 5 minutes to GT,12 steps to the water, restaurants every where, and very friendly people.
Kathy and her staff were terrific, Hey to Henry!!!Very comfortable for a family of 6..
It started out as being just my wife and I, but one of our children decided to come and enjoy the week. Great snorkeling right our the door, rented jet skis and went to StingRay City. A must do with Jet Skis, very cool experience to be able to come and go as you please. Spent a terrfic day at Rum Point. The facility is a quiet location on a very nice beach, 7 mile. Walked the beach everyday and walked right by the crowded resort beachfronts and back to what felt like our own private beach area and pool. This is what
made the week for us. You can chose to party a bit just 50 yards away or stay put and read a book, sun, and swim. They also have very nice BBQ equipment, which we used several nights. The sunsets are spectacular and a great time to unwind. All the neighbors show up 20-30 minutes prior to sundown and share a cocktail, experience of the day
etc…. We will be back to this unit………

Owner's Response: Having beachfront without the crowds is one of the reasons we purchased our condo. We enjoyed your review and are looking forward to our next glass of wine at sunset. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to your next visit.

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!

It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!
  • 5 out of 5
When the advertisement said "on Seven Mile Beach" they really meant it! This beautiful, well-equipped condo is right on the beach. The hugh picture window overlooking the water provides a view of the setting sun that any artist would love to paint. From the friendly welcome by Kathy in the office until we departed a week later we could not have asked for better weather, a better location, a cleaner or better equipped condo, friendlier staff, and a more relaxing environment. If we return to Grand Cayman in the future this is the place we will stay. Literally, it does not get any better than this, and we have been to GC three times before. Glad we found it! Even more glad the owners are willing to share it with us!

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
I can't express in words how wonderful our stay at your condo was! There was so much space and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. But, the best part of all was the unbelievable view and beach. The snorkeling was unparalleled as well. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place and helping to make us feel right at home!
