Heaven on Earth in Grand Cayman
When I was considering booking this unit, I have to admit that I wondered....could this really be as wonderful as the reviews say and the pictures look? Let me tell you, the reviews and pictures don't begin to do justice to these condos on Boggy Sand Road! We rented the ground floor unit, and it was absolutely spotless, elegantly furnished, roomy, well-equipped and only a few steps to the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. The area is residential, private and quiet - it was like we had somehow privately rented Seven Mile Beach! The garden-like grounds of the property were like paradise - the pool was lovely and clean. Although we rented a car for a large portion of our stay, you really don't need one. There is a Foster's Market within a short walk of the condo, as well as a few great little restaurants (Alfresco's where we had delicious potato-crusted grouper, Timbuktu for all-you-can-eat pancakes and Heritage Kitchen for an authentic, casual seafood supper). The bus service is also fantastic - you can easily hop on a bus at the foot of the driveway and go anywhere - we never waited longer than a few minutes for a bus - it was more like hailing a cab. But back to the beach....the unit is equipped with 2 kayaks and a paddle board, which we enjoyed tremendously on the calm, crystal clear waters. Cemetery Beach is right next door for some of the best snorkeling we had ever experienced. The Kittiwake Shipwreck is directly off shore for another fantastic snorkeling experience. We even enjoyed swimming with our own resident sea turtle every day! The condo unit itself was spacious and fully equipped with everything you need - beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, rafts, cooler, fully-equipped, gorgeous kitchen with granite counter tops, beautiful, spacious bathrooms, and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Although our "kids" were 15, the unit would be wonderful for families with smaller children as well. I must say, the absolute best part, however, was our gracious host Morne, who made us feel like pampered family members visiting from out of town. He picked us up from the airport, made sure we had everything we needed, made great recommendations for activities and restaurants, was never intrusive but always available for anything we needed. I would (and will) vacation here again in a heartbeat, and make the highest recommendation to anyone to enjoy the vacation of a lifetime at this property! Just please don't take the week I want! ;)
