THE QUIETER (VILLA) SIDE OF GRAND CAYMAN
Three quarters of the local population, almost 100 hotels & condominiums, most of the tourist commerce, fast food, thousands of cruise ship visitors and construction traffic are concentrated on Grand Cayman’s busy WEST coast; location of the Capital (Georgetown) and famous “7 Mile Beach”.
There can be up to 6 cruise ships on some days dumping 10,000 – 15,000 people on the harbor of Georgetown; who clog the streets and make traffic unbearable. Wednesdays are the worst day to visit Georgetown. Mondays are usually the best (fewest cruise ships).
Within a 19 mile drive from the craziness of this bustling tourist & finance driven city are 90% of the private oceanfront rental villas.
These villas are located as far away from the “madding crowd” as possible on this 22 mile-wide island. Cayman’s quieter Northside, East End and South Sound are home to the 70 or so oceanfront villas available for private rental.
Guests at our villas on the east half of the island not only enjoy their own beachfront; they can enjoy the manicured beaches at the Rum Point Club, Kaibo Yacht Club, two local water-sports resorts as well as many beach bars and restaurants that require no reservation and “island casual” is always the dress code. Despite it’s refuge, we do enjoy a nightlife on the Northside with live music– but most of our guests spend their after-dinner time watching shooting stars around the pool or the kids chasing crabs on the beach & looking for turtle hatchlings.
You will absolutely want to visit Georgetown during your stay for shopping, golf, the turtle farm or other attractions. However, as you drive back “home” to your villa, you will be thankful you chose the side of the island that still has an island feel to it. We hear that a lot from our villa guests.
Grand Cayman is a wonderful, family-oriented, year-round Caribbean destination with convenient flights, modern conveniences, security & safety for your vacation or holiday.
The eastern half of the island (Northside & East End) offer 90% of the oceanfront rental villas and the best climate (least rainfall) available on the island. We look forward to helping you select a villa for your
