Beachfront (on the Water) with Stunning View!

Bedrooms 3
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 - 10 nights


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.


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.


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.


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


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.

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!

Perfect 7 day stay.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day stay in your beautiful, spacious condo. We couldn't have asked for more. Beach views were amazing and the pool was perfect. Loved the surroundings and how well taken care of everything was. We had lots of fun with our 2 daughters and their spouses. Plenty of room for all 6 of us.

Kudos to the person who decorated this place. We loved the beachy decor.

Amazing Location - As advertised ++!

  • 5 of 5

Spot on! Perfect! I could go on and on, but there's other reviews that all say similar things. What you should know; the location is excellent. For a small condo complex they have a wide stretch of beach. This is important, because watching the people in the complex to the south, we saw them going out at 6AM to reserve a chair with a beach towel. None of that here. Always a chair available 15 to 20 feet from unit. The Marriot which is a bit North has 4 rows of beach chairs!Second, the unit is furnished and decorated very well. You will not be disappointed. A few more things; excellent management on site, nice beach towels, cleaning every other day, nice Weber BBQs, nice pool, wifi, free phone calls, printer, etc, etc. If this is in your budget, rent it! Thank you Michael. You have a real gem.

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.
