Why Julie Soar chose Cayman Islands

This, open and light filled condominium is located at one of the most coveted and private areas of the island. Boggy Sand Road is lined with beautiful mansions on the beach and quaint, 100 year old Caymanian cottages.

The island has so much to offer in the way of beautiful beaches, magnificent scuba diving and snorkeling, and world class restaurants. Beautiful botanical gardens, the famous Turtle Farm, duty free shopping and water sports are additional things to enjoy on the island.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, beautiful, landscaped gardens and stunning pool are some of the lovely features of this property. Across the street is one of the most secluded and beautiful beaches on the island. The water is pristine and snorkeling and diving incredible. You can kayak to the USS Kittewake and snorkel or dive one of the islands best wrecks. The sunsets are incredible!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the accommodations was excellent. The condo was very clean and exceptionally stocked with any items we needed. It was well decorated and comfortable. The pool was well maintained, and the beach was truly outstanding. It is one of the best spots (if not the best) on Grand Cayman. We will definitely go back and stay in the same condo. The owner provided top-notch hospitality.

AMAZING condo with a STUNNING private beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in the Cayman Islands and definitely one to remember! When arriving at the condo, we were stunned by how beautiful and close to the beach it was. When we read that it's a short walk to the beach we never imagined it would be as short as it was! The amenities included with the condo during our stay fulfilled every single one of our needs which was extremely helpful. My family rented a car which helped us get around the island better, but the public bus transportation was very good and only costed $2.50 USD per person to go anywhere around the island. The condo provided paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, chairs, umbrellas, and so much more which was convenient and fun to use! The snorkeling off cemetery beach right next to our gate access was awesome! This condo was everything we could've asked for and more. I highly reccommend staying at this condo over any other hotel on seven mile beach. Julie was super nice and made sure to give us advice on where to go and what to see while on the island. This was the best carribbean vacation my family has ever taken and there is no doubt that we will be back to stay at the Windsong Villas next summer!

P.S. The six senses Eco tour is the best excursion to take especially when wanting to see stingray city with a small group instead of a large group!!!

Everything we hoped for in a vacation rental, and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? So many wonderful things to say about this rental. The condo is immaculate and so comfortable. Beds and pillows, linens, towels and little touches throughout are top notch. Juli is a wonderful hostess because she gave us complete privacy, yet is always available if you need help!

In fact, the gardens in the front and back make it seem that you are all alone. Very nice location as well. Just a short walk across a one-way street and you are on a private beach. Cemetery Beach is a very short walk away and is wonderful for snorkeling right off the beach. My two children were thrilled to see tropical fish! My husband and I have traveled a lot in the Caribbean- both before and after having our children- and I we both agree that this is the most wonderful vacation home that we have experienced. Highly recommended. Also, the fact that it is so close to the airport, grocery and Turtle Farm is a definite plus!

Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

My family (three adults, three kiddos) just returned from a wonderful stay at Windsong. We've rented at least a dozen properties across the globe through VRBO and Julie's condo was far and away the best place we've ever stayed. The condo itself was immaculate and well-appointed. Julie has considered every detail and, as a result, the unit has everything you could ever need...and then some. All we needed were our swim suits, some sun screen, and one quick trip to the nearby grocery store and we were set for the week.

The location of the condo was ideal for a quiet, relaxing vacation. As other reviews have noted, the pool was basically private and the beach was beautiful and very close by. Using the provided equipment, we snorkeled or paddle boarded every morning right off the private beach access. Off in the distance we observed the massive cruise ships and resorts further down 7 mile beach and often commented how glad we were to be away from the congestion. This area, and this property, really felt like an escape. We did rent a car and felt the location of Windsong was perfect for exploring the island, enjoying restaurants along 7 mile beach and the West Bay, etc, but we always loved returning to the quiet respite of Boggy Sand Road and this condo.

Do not hesitate to book this property....just don't do it during a week we want to return :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you stay at Windsong. I'm glad you found our location so convenient. It really is nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the resorts. But we're still close enough to take advantage of all the great restaurants and attractions. Please come and stay with us again! Julie

Clean & spacious condo in quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five spent an unforgettable week at this condo on Boggy Sand Road. Boggy Sand road is a quiet, residential area which we appreciated. There was some construction behind and next door to the property, but it didn't cause a disturbance. The beach was very close, literally across BSR, which is a one lane road. However, you do need to walk about another 5 minutes down the beach to where there is enough beachfront to enjoy with young children. Cemetary beach is within walking distance, and the snorkeling was amazing and easy enough for young kids to enjoy. The pool at the condo was clean and a nice size. The condo offered many extras, such as snorkeling gear, life vests, beach chairs, paddle boards, beach towels and extra bath towels. We walked a few minutes to both Heritage Kitchen & Alfresco for dinner, both excellent restaurants. There is also a decent grocery store within walking distance. I would highly recommend this condo for a family with young children!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I'm glad you had a great holiday and took advantage of the snorkeling gear, beach chairs, paddle boards, beach towels etc. It's nice that you visited our neighboring restaurants as well. We really have a great location. We had some beach erosion in January and I'm happy to say that the ocean has decided to bring back our sand! It's coming back daily as the tides have shifted. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed Cemetery Beach. It's great snorkeling and shade make it great for everyone. Hope to see you on your next holiday! Julie

Fantastic Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the last two weeks of January in one of these lovely condos. Grand Cayman is one of our favorite winter get-a-ways due to easy access, predictably warm weather, great beaches and restaurants as well as and all of the other amenities that anyone might need.

We have previously stayed at a number of locations in Grand Cayman (all along seven mile beach) and this is probably our favorite. It is located at the northern end of this famous white sand beach and away from the crowds of downtown and cruise ships. The condo is modern, well maintained and equipped with all of the items that you would expect in a property of this quality. We especially appreciated the kayaks, paddle board, numerous beach chairs, umbrellas and sand and water toys for the grand kids. As many other reviewers have indicated, although removed from the congestion of the southern and middle part of seven mile beach, it is very convenient to excellent restaurants, grocery stores and shopping.

The only minor negative aspect of our stay was that since our visit last year locked gates blocks the closest beach access. Each condo unit is supplied a set of keys but if several adults are sharing a condo it sometimes requires more coordination than I prefer on vacation. The gates were apparently installed by a beachfront property owner. I'm optimistic that in the near future this minor annoyance will be addressed either with an additional set of keys per unit or a combination lock for the gates.

Overall, this unit is a excellent vacation property and represents excellent value for the location. Julie, the property owner/manager, could not have been more helpful, responsive or easier to work with.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at Windsong. As you mentioned and I agree, this area of Seven Mile Beach is just wonderful. It's location is just out of reach of the crowds in the resort and cruise ship areas. Yet it's close enough that you can still enjoy the many outstanding restaurants, shopping and sights/excursions the island has to offer. I'm glad that you made use of the paddle board, kayaks, beach chairs and beach toys. It makes our guests visit that much more enjoyable. We're working to get the beach gate/keys issue resolved and I'm confident that this will be easier in this aspect soon! Julie
