The location of Clearwater House really is fantastic. You'll have a unique island experience staying here; all the beauty of Seven Mile Beach without the crowds of staying on the "condo corridor". A grocery store, pharmacy, bank, liquor store and restaurants are withing walking distance. When you are ready for a night out, the corridor restaurants and amenities are only 3-5 miles away.

The home is light-filled and spacious. Guests are surprised at how large the home feels because of the open floor plan and windows. The home’s interior is tastefully decorated with a "barefoot luxury" look and feel. The open living, dining and kitchen spaces feature an 11-foot long, counter-height bar creating the perfect spot for large families and groups of friends to gather while cooking or mixing cocktails. Plenty of windows bring the "outdoors in" and allow for prime viewing of the gazebo, pool and pool space to give you the indoor/outdoor communal experience of Caribbean living.

The living room is equipped with a 60” HDTV, DVD player and fiber-optic cable with 119 channels including HBO, Disney, ESPN, Fox Sports and NFL Network. We have a 3-zone Sonos system to play your favorite music inside and out.

The outside living spaces are truly special; private pool, large pool area with plenty of seating and a spacious screened gazebo. The property is enclosed with a privacy wall and has a long set-back from the nearest neighbor so your family or group will enjoy incredible privacy to sit back and relax. You could easily spend an entire day and evening enjoying the pool and outdoor space that Clearwater House has to offer.

And the Beach!! All the beaches in Grand Cayman are public and this spot, being at the north end of SMB, is incredible. The beach access path is 323 ft from the driveway and, since Boggy Sand Road is a tiny, and not a through street, we do not have many visitors so the beach feels like your own slice of paradise. You can sit and relax looking out at the clear, turquoise water with the best off-shore snorkeling that Seven Mile Beach has to offer. The U.S. Kittiwake reef and dive site is located straight out from Boggy Sand Beach. For something different, and for more shade, Cemetery Beach is only an 8-9 minute walk from the home.

Many people from around the island head to the sea wall by Boggy Sand Road just to catch the amazing sunsets. At this sea wall, where Boggy Sand Road begins, you will also find Heritage Kitchen, the well known island restaurant famous for its simplicity, fresh fish and fresh juices.

-Nearby causal restaurants within walking distance include Heritage Kitchen, Alfresco's, 24-hr Subway and West Bay Diner.

-Finer dining restaurants a short drive away (1.8 mi) include: Calypso Grill, Catch and Morgan's Harbor; all favorites.

-Hotel, numerous restaurants along the SMB corridor, and Camana Bay ( a shopping center with a movie theater) are only 3 - 4.5 miles away.

-Nearby attractions include the Cayman Turtle Farm and Dolphin Discovery (1.8 mi), Cemetery Beach (0.6 mi), West Bay Beach Boat Ramp (0.25 mi), Yacht Club Boat Ramp (2.0 mi), Ritz Carlton Blue-Tip Golf Course (3.7 mi), Safehaven Dock and Northsound Golf Course (3.8 mi) and a curious little town called Hell (1.8 mi).

Under special circumstances, and for an additional fee we, can accommodate up to 14 by renting an on-site studio apartment that sleeps 4.

About Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond

We are from Dallas, Texas but love the warm weather and beach. Our many family beach vacations took us to Cayman a few years ago …and we knew this was it!

Grand Cayman now feels like home to us. We have four generations of our family visiting at times and having a private home allows us to enjoy our valuable family time away from the crowds.

We have worked very hard to make CH a wonderful place for our family and friends and genuinely enjoy sharing our home with other families, couples and groups of friends who come to Cayman on holiday.

Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond purchased this house in 2015

Why Tim Wheeler & Kathy Dearmond chose West Bay

Cayman felt like home instantly. The people are friendly, the beaches are fantastic, the water is crystal-clear, calm and warm, and the marine life is incredible. All that with luxury living and gourmet restaurants to make life comfortable.

Once we decided to make Grand Cayman our home, we spent the next 2 years exploring the island and trying to find our perfect slice of paradise. The charm and location of Boggy Sand Road is so unique - we knew it was Boggy Sand Road or nothing. Boggy Sand Beach is without a doubt our favorite part of Seven Mile Beach; absolutely stunning sunsets and wonderful snorkeling and marine life. We see so many great things at the beach and reef: sea turtles mating in the summer, vibrant coral and all kind of fish and other marine life.

We love that this location is quiet, relaxing and away from the more crowded parts of the Seven Mile Beach condo corridor and a fun night out is only a 5-7 minute drive away. Plus we can walk to Heritage Kitchen for great fresh fish and juices!

What makes this house unique

The pool and outdoor entertaining areas provide days and evenings of fun. A short walk down the picturesque Boggy Sand Road brings you to Boggy Sand Beach; to the right of the beach access point is a reef with the very best off-shore snorkeling on the island; to the left - sand and sun.

this is a perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I typically do not give positive reviews to places we stay as it increases competition for future rentals but this is an exception. A typical day....coffee by the beautiful pool, after breakfast we head to the beach, some of us then swim out to the reef for a +/- hour snorkel. Lunch, several times we went to the local Heritage Kitchen for grouper (excellent). Mid afternoon back to the house and the pool which gets some afternoon shade(good for the kids and all to get out of the sun). The house accommodated 10 of us comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed. With 10 of us the washer & dryer were used daily and the beds were very comfortable. Probably the best feature of all was Kathy, the owner. She will go out of her way to make sure you have a great stay....recommendations for restaurants, Stingray City, shopping.....if you have a question, just ask Kathy. We definitely want to go back

Perfect and Well Prepared for our Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in the Caymans. Our first time there, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Kathy is an excellent host and has taken care of the finest of details from Q=tips to Sharp Knives in the kitchen. Lots of Bath and Pool Towels, Beds are comfortable, TV's in every room, Internet Surround Stereo. Plenty of room for the 8 of us to spread out. House is well maintained and well stocked. We would stay here again without a doubt. We have stayed in many getaway homes and resorts and would rate this with the Gold Crown Quality! Debbie

Family stay at Clearwater House

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 adult children and have stayed in a number of different houses on various island over the years. I would rank CH at the top of the list in terms of location and all around comfort/value. The house is in very nice condition, well set up with all the amenities you would like. It's super convenient to the beach and is in our favorite part of the island - quiet but not remote. Kathy was a super host - I would strongly suggest that you listen to her suggestions - she was on target every time (food shopping, restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, diving, etc.). If you like to snorkel - Cemetary Reef is just off the beach. There are very few people snorkeling there and the reef is one of the better ones we were on all week.

If we would be heading back to Grand Cayman any time soon - I would book the Clearwater House again without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.

This home REALLY is a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Luxury with a home feel. Privacy with a pool, outdoor grilling, and laundry. Great for the entire family or a romantic get-away for two. Boogie boards, kayak, snorkeling available. Our group enjoyed swimming with the stingrays and scuba diving lessons and visiting the Turtle Center. And, of course, playing and snorkeling at the beach every day. Lots of shopping and places to eat (possible to go to a different restaurant every day). We especially enjoyed the meals with friends and family at the house. Our hosts were wonderful; pointing out things to do and see. I can see why they love Grand Cayman! I would recommend this home away from home to ANYONE! Thank you so much, Kathy and Tim for a great experience!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the stay and I had a great time showing your group my favorite snorkel spots (Boggy Sand Beach of course). It was nice that we had so much turtle activity during your stay. It's one of the reasons that we especially like July. Hope to see you soon.-Kathy

OVERALL BEST PLACE TO STAY IN CAYMAN

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 are somewhat frequent visitors of Grand Cayman, and for obvious reasons love the island for it's clear water, great snorkeling and awesome cuisine on the island. Our biggest issue is always where to stay though. We have a family of 5 , with kids that are 21, 16, and 15, so we really have to do atleast 2 hotel rooms. The Clearwater house not only allowed for the kids to have their own room, but the house is so accommodating on every level. It is well appointed with super comfortable beds, high quality lines, great sound systems, wifi, awesome stocked kitchen, and a pool. It is very well located on the island, even with the grocery store being just around the corner !! There is incredible snorkeling just across the street , that even hosts a shipwreck about 500 ft out. The owner, Kathy, is more than helpful in showing you where to snorkel all over the island. We so enjoyed our week there! Our typical day would consist of us being able to have breakfast in our pajams, head out for some excursions, then end either on the beach across the street, or by the pool. Kathy has some great hammocks, a basketball goal and cornhole set up in the front which were so enjoyable especially for my competitive family :). Can't say enough great things about the Clearwater house !!

Within a short walking distance (5 minutes) you have access to Fosters Supermarket and Centennial Towers Center with a pharmacy, bank, Subway sandwich shop, dry cleaner and more.

The Kittiwake Shipwreck is a short paddle board from shore. Cayman Turtle Farm, Dolphin Discovery and Barkers Nature Reserve are all within a 5 minute drive away. We are less then 10 minutes away from Camana Bay with Shoppes, a Cinema and lots of restaurants and free evening entertainment over weekends.
