About leif barkinge

Leif and Sonya visited Grand Cayman in 1978 for the first time. Leif had spent many years flying in the US Air Force during the Viet Nam war years and had visit many Islands in the Pacific. Being an avid diver we were lured to Cayman by "Skin Diver" magazine. We had found Paradise and never wanted to leave.

We named Calypso after Jacques Cousteau's research ship . We put the apartments into tourist rentals for Airline employees until the island was devastated in 2004 by hurricane "Ivan". After a decade of long term rentals we decided to return to Tourism. We kept the rates low to make a Cayman visit affordab

leif barkinge purchased this apartment in 1991

Why leif barkinge chose West Bay

Calypso Cove is an ideally situated location for relaxing stay away from all crowded beaches,condos and hotels. A nearly private part of fantastic 7-mile beach's north end. Next to West Bay dock with all its dive operators and also the public beach. Great snorkelling right out front, 15 steps away.

What makes this apartment unique

We have some excellent restaurants within walking distance serving all types of cuisine and some specialising in local fare. We also have a grocery store, liquor store, Subway Sandwich, Pharmacy and

Bank all close by. If you choose our property you would be experiencing the Island as it was in times

Very nice stay, nice location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Calypso Cove in many ways,.The property was well cared for, and Leif and Sonya were great. There was a personal touch that is always lacking when staying at a hotel. We are a couple and were joined by a family member. The two bedroom condo was perfect for that, enough personal and communal space at the same time. We spent most of our time diving, and that was very convenient, there are a number of excellent dive ops nearby. A great stay, hope we can get back soon!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the apartment. The kitchen was fully stocked with ever appliance we needed and more. Sparkling clean with very stylish furnishings. The apartment was remarkable spacious and lots of towels, beach towels, beach chairs and even a float and pool noodles. The owners even supplied a cell phone and coins for the on site laundry. This apartment lacks nothing and I hope to stay again.
