About Jon and Carol McCabe

Jon is recently retired from the hospitality industry. Carol is a retired dental hygienist and former realtor in Arizona and Illinois. We have enjoyed owning our home in Cayman for over 14 years and hope to share our home often to guests of VRBO . Let us help make your Cayman vacation a wonderful memory.

Jon and Carol McCabe purchased this condo in 2003

Why Jon and Carol McCabe chose West Bay

Grand Cayman and our condo complex has so much to offer! Enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean sea or a dip in our large, ocean front pool. Play a game of ping pong in our beach cabana or borrow a book to read from our lending library. The building construction is all poured in place concrete. No thin communal "dry wall" walls ...where you often experience your neighbors TV or conversations. Our units are very quiet. Our building is beachfront set on an angle to the beach .This allows for a wonderful ocean view without the direct full on glare of the sun from 2 PM to sunset. Perfect!

What makes this condo unique

What drew us to our complex was the 400 feet of beach front for just 45 owners . Tides change and often to the north and south of us, properties will for a period suffer beach erosion. We have always had our sandy beach...with no rocks or iron shore at the waters edge to maneuver around . Another benefit: our wonderful neighbors. 5 minute beach walk to the north the luxurious Kimpton Seafire Resort. 10 minute beach walk to the south the Ritz, the Westin ...and the Governor's house ! Rest assured , it is one of the best locations on 7 mile beach!

Mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with. They sent us information in advance and answered all our questions through email promptly. They made booking easy, and were helpful.

We had a couple issues with this place, mostly because it is located right beside the public beach:

- loud music playing until 1am Saturday and Sunday night keeping us up

- cruise ship people coming and crowding the beach and boats and seadoos taking over the area

-unfortunately, someone in the unit below smoked the whole trip making sitting on the balcony a problem

- the unit itself doesn't have a washer so you have to walk to the washer and pay $5 US for one load

- there are only 5 cabanas for 60 units. This caused a huge problem as everyday we went down to the beach only to find people leave their towels on the chairs under the cabana to "reserve" it for the day. We had a 5 month old and 2 year old with us and needed the cabana. We were up everyday at 6am so i just started going down to the beach very early to get a cabana.

- unit doesn't have a downstairs restroom which would have been handy

It also had good things:

- beach area is nice

- pool is pretty warm and well kept

-people leave you alone on the beach

-unit contained provisions

Overall, the island is so beautiful, it's hard to have a bad time here. But, if we return it may be further away from the public beach area. Still a great time though!

Harbour Heights #25 Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo we stayed at was perfect. Very clean and location was great. Everything worked (including air conditioning both downstairs and upstairs) and lots of "extras" (ie cooler on wheels, bug spray, etc) to enjoy our stay. The people in the office were both accommodating and helpful. There were quite a lot of cruise ships in port during our stay but security who were always around made sure that Harbour Heights property remained off limits. We always felt safe. The bus service was most helpful and convenient as we made our way around the island to enjoy the many attractions. One of the best (if not the best) vacation we ever had and will definitely be coming back and if available staying in the same place.

We had a wonderful vacation in Grand Cayman!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Carol and Jonathan,

What a breathtaking view of the Caribbean from your lovely condo! For one glorious week, it was our condo and our view! Location was excellent. Everything was so close. . . a two minute walk to the beach or to the pool or even to the office, where Paula was there to give us guidance about things to see and do. We could keep a watchful eye on the grandchildren ( 12,12 and 14) when they were in the sea and could hear them behind the pool house as they enjoyed their time swimming in the pool (especially with the multi-colored lights at night) or playing ping-pong. It probably took all of five minutes to walk along the beach to Calico's Jack's bar, which had good food and great smoothies!

The condo itself was very comfortable with the two nice-sized, bright bedrooms and two full baths. All five of us were most pleased to have the easy wifi and great air-conditioning. We made some wonderful memories in Grand Cayman. Thank you for helping to make them happen!

Best regards,

Marcy and Jim

The best location on Seven Mile Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Soooo, where do I begin??? My girlfriend is a travel junkie aka wanderlust woman. She has traveled to over 48 countries and has lived in Australia, Hawaii and Grand Cayman. Needless to say when we travel I pretty much leave the planning to her. This is our 2nd trip back to Jon and Carol's condo and for a number of reasons. The location is prime and the beach is awesome. This place is right where you want to be - right in the middle of Seven Mile Beach. We are not resort folks (my Disney days ended many years ago). We expect clean and maintained accommodations and this place delivers. Amenities are important however we spend most of our time exploring. The unit itself has recently been remodeled and is very well appointed (so nice that I probably won't rent it if it were mine). The views from the balcony are great and the grounds are immaculate. The location is very safe and pool was very well maintained. We especially enjoyed the close proximity to Calypso Jacks, one of Cayman's few remaining beach bars. The Kimpton is located a few hundred feet to the north and is worth a tour - but I certainly would never stay there because it just isn't Cayman and I'm not a resort prisoner. Anyway, it's rare when I can get my GF to go to the same place twice (she says there's too many other places to explore) but we hopefully will return here for a 3rd time (as she holds Cayman dear to her heart). In being candid and objective there is nothing negative I can say about this location or the unit itself. There is plenty of space, a great TV, fantastic air conditioning and awesome ocean views from the balcony. We never cooked in the kitchen but realized that is has everything you would need and more. Thank you Jon and Carol - hope we are able to return soon!!!!

A Perfect Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Let me first start off by saying that I am pretty well traveling throughout the Caribbean. I generally do not stay at all inclusive resorts and stay clear of overly crowed hotels. Therefore, I did have high expectations with my first trip to Grand Cayman. After many hours spent researching the internet, I made the correct decision of booking Jon and Carol's condo, room #25. The condo was just perfect. Clean, organized, properly working AC, all home amenities that you could ask for. To me, there is something special about being on vacation, and NOT waiting for a hotel elevator to take you up to your floor.

The grounds were very well kept. Very tropical with all the palm trees, lawn and flowers in perfect order. The place really was maintained nicely.

The beach.....well lets just say nothing short of awesome. The blue water with the white sand, did not disappoint. Being a beach snob, I don't like swimming in seaweed, or having to maneuver around coral or rocks.

The conditions were perfect. Not to mentioned, what a nice relief knowing that whenever you choose to hit the beach, a lounger awaits. NO need to get up at 6am, just to secure your chair with a towel or magazine. - Oh, did I mention the beach is private for the condo users only, patrolled by condo security. Again, very nice knowing you never had to fight for space, or the perfect spot.

Spent a little time in the heated pool. Again, very clean, deep and well maintained. The pool house has a ping pong table for the guests to use. It was actually a big hit and provided a lot of fun when you just wanted a break from the sun.

In summary, I have nothing negative to report back with. The restaurants were great too. Carol or a member of her team will provide recommendations on dining, etc. All were spot on.

I look forward to returning again.

Fabulous Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at your condo. It was very quiet on the beach and the heated pool was phenomenal. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the unit was sparkling clean. The beach was fabulous and lots of shade to read a book under. Don't do anything to those trees!!!

Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. Although we had rain only on one day, there must have been storms in further out in the ocean because the water on seven mile beach was ROUGH. Very few people were able to brave the waves. I know usually it is one of the calmest beaches in the Caribbean. The restaurants you recommended were great. We liked Calypso the best with the sticky toffee bread pudding. I think we got our fill of lobster during the week.

We met many people while there who were owners for many years. They were all very friendly. Paula was fantastic and made sure we had everything. Thank you for the bottle of wine on arrival, that was a nice touch.

We will be coming again in the future and hope to stay with you again.
