About Dr. Avrom

The Appleman family lives in Minneapolis and purchased Cayman Coast Escape 15 years ago. This is a $3,000,000 property. Living in Minnesota is a great reason to own a Caribbean paradise home to share with others.

Dr. Avrom Appleman and his three children are all certified scuba divers. As a family, they have snorkeled and dove dozens many time in their backyard. The clarity is over 110 feet, with multiple walls, starting at 65 feet, 85 feet, and then the world famous 6000 foot North Wall.

Dr. Avrom purchased this villa in 2000

Why Dr. Avrom chose West Bay

This is the only four bedroom home for rent near Seven Mile Beach. You live 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Georgetown, and five minutes from world famous Seven Mile Beach. The owners travel to Grand Cayman every few months to assure sure the property is kept in stellar condition-nothing is more frustrating than staying at property that is not perfectly maintained! The owners' daughter had her wedding reception Memorial Weekend, 2014, for over 100 guests. Her picture may be found on the cover of Caribbean Bride magazine.

What makes this villa unique

The Caribbean turquoise sunrises and sunsets can be viewed from the property. This is a full acre on 1000 feet of oceanfront. There is complete privacy, but your are not remote. You are not on busy Miami Beach! You are not on crowded Waikiki Beach! This is your own oceanfront compound-your own Caribbean getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at the Cayman Coast Escape. My husband and I traveled with two of our daughters, their husbands and our 11 month old grandchild. Yes, we did the tourist things-Stingray City, walking on Seven Mile Beach and snorkeling on Cemetary Beach and right off of this property. However the absolute best part of the vacation was just staying at the house. The accommodations were perfect! Everyone had their own space to retreat to, but the days were spent enjoying breakfast in the screened porch, lounging on the vast deck and splashing around in the inviting pool, nightly meals and games on the outdoor patio table while taking in gorgeous sunsets and listening to the waves tumbling in. That is what family memories are made from! When we had a question the owners/property manager responded immediately. That is something that doesn't always happen and we really appreciated that. We would highly recommend this property for your next vacation.

Owner's Response: Tom and Family, Thank you for your kind words. My wife, Mickey, and I have owned and rented CaymayCoastEscape for 18 years. We take pride in our 28 FIVE STAR REVIEWS and in sharing our family's personal home with over 800 guests. This is our Shangri-La. This is our peaceful sanctuary! We never, however, take previous guests' positive comments for granted. We constantly strive to make this one of your most memorable vacations of your life. When you arrived, we immediately contacted you to assure that everything is OK. Even while you were in Grand Cayman, during the week, we offered hints on our favorite restaurants, diving, snorkeling, and exciting places of interest. Mickey and I are excited. Why? We are going to Cayman in a few days. We constantly upgrade our villa and cottage. Each time-and I mean each time our family and friends have difficulty leaving. The Appleman family sincerely appreciates you booking our Caymanian villa and cottage. You and your family were wonderful guests. We look forward to your return.

Wonderful stay in Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home and property! Pool was beautiful, and the sunsets were picture perfect. My husband and our girls snorkeled at night with underwater flashlights at the breakwater cove near the house. They saw many lobsters, fish, and urchins.

Owner's Response: Stephanie, Such a pleasure meeting you, your husband, and warm family! I have talked to hundreds of guests, like you, over the telephone. It was coincidental and fortuitous that I was in Grand Cayman at the same time en route to the US from another country. It was fortunate to meet you face-to-face. The Appleman family appreciate you renting our home. Please come back again (you receive a 25% discount). -Mickey and Michael Appleman

A great dive location on Grand Cayman, peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a family group of snorkelers and divers and spent a week at the charming

Cayman Coast Escape. We dove every day, we chose the entry from the area next

door which provided a sheltered area with steps to enter the water.

The sea life is amazing and the reef is beautiful, with many fish, rays, invertebrates,

large green morays, spotted morays, barracuda, queen angel fish and queen triggers, and the largest display of sea fans I have ever seen.

We used in depth water sports, Nat Robb is the owner, and set us up for an introductory dive, delivered tanks and weights with nitrox for us. It was all

handled beautifully, I highly recommend them.

We also did birding with Geddes Hislop and saw virtually all of the Cayman endemic

birds. I also highly recommend is tour, with silver thatch excursions if you are a birder.

You are near enough to everything the Grand Cayman has to offer, but with privacy

and an owner who truly cares about his guests and his home. I cannot recommend

it highly enough.

We loved orienting you to our home as quickly as possible so you could expeditiously explore and enjoy the magnificence of Grand Cayman. In the last 18 years of ownership, I have met so many guests on the telephone, such and you, and wish I could have engaged with you face-to-face to thank you directly for renting our home.

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Cayman Coast Escape. There was plenty of room for the 8 of us. We especially enjoyed the ability to snorkel right off the property. The home was well appointed, clean and spacious.

Great 25th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We spent are 25th with family and friends, from the moment we drove in I knew me made the right choice. Its all about the view. Ocean from left to right, sun ups and sun sets all from the private yard. We spent very little time inside, pool and ocean beats walls. Cooked lunch and some dinners and found everything you will need. Local restaurants were all good, and everyone everywhere was friendly. A fun week for all.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in the West Bay of Grand Cayman and couldn't be in a more beautiful and tranquil spot. It was like having an entire ocean to ourselves with the exception of an occasional dive boat. We thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling behind the house. Cayman Turtle Divers were happy to pick us up from the house to take us diving, snorkeling, and to Sting Ray City. The pool was an added bonus and we spent every evening listening to the gentle lapping of the ocean on the rocks. The four bedrooms and four bathrooms made it perfect for three couples and two teens. The kitchen was equipped with everything we might need. We would definitely go back!
