Cayman Sands is an oceanfront villa in Old Man Bay along the north coast. This popular villa is one of only 2-3 homes that offer shore scuba-diving off the famous Cayman Wall. With an open, one-story design, Cayman Sands offers guests an intimate experience across 4,000 sq ft. of living space, plus a one bedroom guest cottage.

The main house features 4 bedroom suites (king, queen, 2 twin beds, and 2 twin bunk beds) with ensuite baths that have been completely re-tiled and renovated.  Both oceanfront suites have french doors that open up onto the screened pool atrium and sun deck. Cayman Sands was thoughtfully designed to be opened up on cool winter nights when A/C isn't necessary. 

The oceanfront freshwater pool is protected by a screened atrium keeping local wildlife and insects at bay from ruining your stay. Optional pool heat is available in the winter months for an additional surcharge. The pool atrium comes furnished with a sectional sofa and dining table perfect for evening cocktails or outdoor dining.

The view of the large sandy beach is framed by the two wings of the house, an oceanfront gazebo, and two hammocks ideal for long afternoons relaxing with a book or simply enjoying the views.

An oceanfront vaulted greatroom floods the villa with natural light and stunning views through 30 feet of sliding glass doors. A recently upgraded kitchen offers all the modern appliances you would expect, as well as dishware, cookware, and cutlery.  The living area is furnished with a wall-mounted flat screen TV, plush couches, and a sleeper sofa for small children only.

The guest cottage features a queen master suite with kitchenette, screened porch, and a second-story balcony. The guest cottage is NEVER rented separately to unrelated guests during your stay--it is there if you need it. 

Cayman Sands can be rented in two configurations: as a 4 bedroom villa which includes the main house only for up to 12 people (8 adults max), or as a 5 bedroom villa to include the guest cottage for up to 14 people (10 adults max).

Small tourist weddings welcomed.

Beach Notes

Centrally located, the homes in Old Man Bay offer perhaps the best shore diving and snorkeling on the entire island. The beaches are mostly sand, but can also have some natural rock formations too. Either way, with the varied marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The beaches here offer great seashell collecting and turtle sightings in summer!

Old Man Bay is only 5 minutes from 2 large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, wind surfing, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.  

Heading west, Kurt's Korner is a local restaurant within walking distance.  Over the Edge restaurant is about one mile further west offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus at affordable prices. Another 15 minutes west of Old Man Bay is the famous Rum Point Club with water sports, restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and a barefoot beach with table service.

Just arrived home from a week's vacation with our children and grandchildren and here are the words used to describe our time on Grand Cayman and Cayman Sands. AWESOME, AMAZING, FANTASTIC and BEST VACATION EVER. This property is large, spacious, CLEAN and well stocked. We were a party of 12 ranging in age from 5-74 and everyone had room to relax and have a great time. The kitchen had (almost) everything you could ask for. The only thing missing was a slow cooker/crock pot so you could prepare your dinner in the morning, explore the island during the day and come home to a hot meal ready to eat. We enjoyed staying on the North Shore because it was very peaceful and less congested than Georgetown. Rum Point has a fantastic beach with lots of activities for all ages. Stingray city, the Reef and Starfish Point are a must do....We recommend Crystal Seas Charters, they were awesome and truly went out of their way to give us a once in a lifetime experience...thanks Hayden & Jack!! Cannot give VRBO & Grand Cayman Villas enough kudos for the booking process and customer service they provided. Great companies to work with. Will use them again for future travels.




This property is fantastic. Well stocked and large rooms. GREAT!

The Andersen, Matson & McWilliams' families just returned from our Cayman vacation. Here are the words everyone used to describe the time we had on Grand Cayman and at the Cayman Sands. AMAZING, AWESOME, SPECTACULAR and the BEST vacation ever. Our party consisted of 12 people ranging from 5-74 and we had more than enough room to spread out and enjoy all this house had to offer. The kitchen was fully stocked with more than enough to accommodate a family of this size. The only thing that would have been a great addition to the kitchen was a slow cooker/crock pot so that you could make your meal in the morning and then play all day and come back to a delicious hot meal ready to eat. Truthfully, this house exceeded our expectation in all ways...it truly was PERFECT! If you have a large family and want to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the North Shore on Grand Cayman then Cayman Sands is the place for you.

I meant to write before now. I wanted to tell you thank you. My family had such a good time in Grand Cayman. We were the ones who got bumped from St. Thomas because of the hurricane. You were my first point of contact and you were great as well as the recommendations you made. We loved the house on the quiet side and Rum Point was probably one of our favorite beaches. We did yoga with Lindsey, snorkeling and kayaking. All of it was fun. We took someone in our group to the airport a day early and drove around seven mile beach. It reinforced that the house you recommended was the right choice for us. We’ll be back!

This house was amazing. We had 13 people in our group. The ages ranged from 2-60. We all loved it. Plenty of room for everyone sleeping, eating , visiting and playing games.There is a pool that is screened in and that was a great place to relax. The house has its own private sandy beach. Some enjoyed sitting in the covered cabana area. You do need sturdy sandals or water shoes for there is lots of broken shells and coral. We did the stingray trip, bioluminescent kayak tour and had Lindsay come to the house for a yoga lesson. This part of the island is definitely quieter, but you still have some good restaurant choices as well as a couple of small grocery stores. The kitchen is well stocked so we did make dinner at the house a few times. Our favorite beach was Rum Point. It has free beach chairs, hammocks, an area for ordering food and drink , bathrooms and lots of shade. Our group loves the beach but we don’t last long if there is no shade. We actually got bumped from St. Thomas because of the hurricane, but we were not disappointed at all. We had a great vacation!

My parents had a condo on seven mile beach when we were young. This year my parents wanted to return to Grand Cayman. I researched for what seemed months and landed at Cayman Sands. My Dad has a very tough time getting around so it was important to have assistance bars in the bathroom and shower. Cayman Sands even has a dock/boardwalk to get out to the gazebo without having to walk on sand. He sat out there for hours watching the waves come in. It was fantastic to have all 11 of us all under the same roof (we did rent the guesthouse as well). Very clean and recently painted - lots of pool toys and kitchen has every utensil you would ever need! Best mattresses in a rental I have ever experienced as well as top notch linens and bedding. My kids missed school for two weeks to make this trip happen but the internet kept them working on their math facts while out. It was wonderful to be able to get my parents down to Cayman and have a home that they were comfortable in. Thank you to the owners for thinking about disabilities! It was a trip we will not forget and I hope to come back with my children again.

Loved Cayman Sands

Reviewed by Charles on 08/05/2017
We've rented a fair number of houses in the Caribbean, and by far, Cayman Sands was the best. Great pool, awesome beach and the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen in a rental property. Maintenance on beach/ocean-front properties is always a challenge, but the house/property were impeccable. Layout of the house was perfect for our 2 families. Everyone had a great time. We did 3 shore dives from the beach - great reefs (Julie's wall and Babylon). The only thing I would change about the house is that the sheer curtains in the bedrooms let in a LOT of light (if one group stays up and hangs by the pool or in the living area or when the sun rises at 6 am). We hung some of our dark dive towels which helped, but black-out curtains would be a great addition.




Remote Paradise

family vacation with 11 adults and 3 children ranging in age from 2 to 82 years-old. Wonderful house with pool and private beach. It is located well off the beaten path. If you are looking for activities and night life in the city or on Seven Mile Beach then plan on taking a long drive. The house is located at least 45 minutes from the airport and busy shopping and dining areas. However, this house was perfect for our family. We saw a total of 8 people the entire week. Not 8 people on the beach but from the beach looking in all directions. The enclosed pool and sitting area, the tiled porch deck and the gazebo were wonderful for relaxing and gathering. There were pool toys and ample lounge chairs. There were two booster chairs for the children and a separate ice maker in the laundry room. There were two newer ocean kayaks with seat backs, paddles and life jackets. There was a new charcoal grill available. The pool depth goes from 3 to 6 feet with corner steps and a ledge which runs the length of the shallow end for children. The yard is all sand but the beach is not. Aqua shoes are a MUST. There were 10 pair of aqua shoes at the house ranging from child to adult sizes. The beach is rock, shells and coral. It can be difficult walking out into the surf navigating the rock ledges and coral. But this also provided amazing snorkeling less than 100 yards from the shore. We have chartered snorkeling excursions on other islands that could not match the experiences right off this house's shoreline. The separate cottage was a nice get away for my daughter and son-in-law who have not yet experienced the chaos of raising young children. There was a crib in one of the rooms in lieu of the listed single bed. The sleeper sofa was comfortable but located in the living room. It works much better in the spacious King or Queen rooms. There is one TV in the main house and one TV in the cottage. No TVs are in the bedrooms which was fine with us. CONT..

There are grocery, water-sport, and liquor stores only 5 miles to the East -- an easy drive (stay on the LEFT side). We rented 2 vans which we used for various day trips to other parts of the island. Check your cell phone service plan. We planned to use the GPS on our phones but only two of us had service. Consider renting a GPS when you rent your vehicle. This is an amazing house in a scenic remote paradise location. It worked perfectly for our family vacation and all were delighted with the experience.

My wife and I stayed here with our daughter and 3 grandchildren ages 13, 9, and 6. Everything went quite smoothly from the online rental process until we departed. The villa layout was perfect for our group, providing plenty of privacy when wanted, but great shared areas for the whole group to spend time together.

This house is perfect for a large group. We are a three generation family of 14 people ranging in age from 10 months old to 63 years old. The cottage was very convenient for the baby and parents and the layout of the main house gave everyone privacy plus room for all family time. The living areas allowed plenty of room for all of us to gather, play games, hang out, eat, and have fun together. The covered pool gave us a respite from the sun in the afternoons and away from bugs in the evening. The kitchen is well appointed--we all love to cook--the kitchen had everything and more! Cayman Sands is convenient to everything on the Island. You cannot beat the privacy of this beautiful home, the exquisite view of the ocean, and the beach all to yourself everyday! When we went to 7 mile beach for a day, our 8 year old grandson exclaimed, "When can we go back to our own beach. This place is crowded with too many people!" This side of the island is quiet, calm, easy going, and very limited commercial vendors--which we loved. We stayed for two weeks and can't wait to return to Cayman Sands.

We had a great stay at Cayman Sands! The house worked perfectly for our two families. The kitchen was nicely stocked for the few nights we ate in, but we also enjoyed the restaurants over on this quiet side of the island - Tukka, Rum Point, Eagle Ray's, the Lighthouse, and Kurt's. We did venture over to Seven Mile Beach for activities on a couple of days but loved that we could retreat to the serenity of Cayman Sands. We enjoyed the beach, snorkeling off the beach, the pool, the gazebo and hammocks! No shortage of things to do right at the house. We also made use of the kayaks and floats. We also enjoyed "local" excursions to the Botanical Gardens, the Mastic Trail, Starfish Point, and Stingray City. Bring sturdy water shoes - Cayman beaches are very rocky and Cayman Sands is no exception. We only experienced very minor issues with a bathroom sink and shower both of which were addressed completely and promptly. We would go back to Cayman Sands without hesitation!

Our stay at Cayman Sands was everything I could dream of in a vacation and more! They have thought of (almost, see below) everything right down to the tiniest detail! The house is gorgeous! I had my doubts about the screened-in atrium but when the sun starts to set, the bugs come out (bring bug spray) we were so happy to be able to still enjoy the sunset and sound of the waves while not getting eaten alive! We kept looking for the hammock(s) outside the house, we finally found them in the storage closet but they were super-easy to set-up in the gazebo and let me tell you, several naps were taken there! Throughout planning this trip all the way through to our stay, the management company (Grand Cayman Rentals), the owner, and the local property representative have been so incredibly helpful! On our first day there was a lot of seaweed and trash on the direct beach front (not the private part of the beach directly behind the house which we loved and played a lot of bocce ball on!) I sent an email to Jim at Grand Cayman Villas and copied the local rep and owner just to be on the safe side and they sent someone out to rake it, now THAT is service! I loved that someone went to the effort of using a label-maker to mark what each light switch does, there are a lot of them and, while it's a small detail, it just shows the thought they've put into alleviating any stress. My only recommendations (not to be confused with complaints) would be: - put some caution tape on the front-entry stairs because the first step leading to the drive is very hard to see (the ceramic tile is white, the gravel is white, and it's right as you walk out) sadly I fell and sprained my ankle on our 2nd day, it slowed me down quite a bit but I didn't let it stop me entirely! See comments about insurance. - the curtain rods and sconces should be anchored to the wall. As you gradually move the drapes open and close over time, the rods slide back and forth and unfortunately you

We have been renting from the property agent for years. We rented Cayman Sands last year with friends, and we promptly booked it again for this year. The trip did not disappoint. The location was and is fantastic. It is not nearby the busy areas, which is exactly what we wanted. It is within convenient driving distance to a couple of smaller grocery stores, Rum Point, and a liquor store. If you enjoy cooking, as I do, then you will find the kitchen well-appointed with the ocean and pool area visible due to the open floor plan. The two suites on either side of the property provide quite a bit of privacy, and the ceramic-tile patio or sun deck extends along the entire ocean-facing side of the property, so each suite has a nice small sitting area outside french doors. The private beach is nice, as is the screened-in pool area. We particularly enjoyed watching sunsets from the gazebo. We'll be back.

Vacations with extended families are always an adventure! Staying at Cayman Sands provided the wonderful surroundings, warmth, comfort and amenities needed for a memorable stay. The privacy allowed our family to bond and enjoy each others company. We wandered the coastline on long walks and enjoyed the amazing views for hours. The screened porch was amazing for naps, the gazebo allowed conversation, a gentle breeze and more amazing views. The guesthouse gave the teens a place to hang out while still being close to the family.

We had such a wonderful time at the house during our week, The kids were never bored and were always off on adventure, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking and more. It was a blessing to be at such a safe home - we never felt uncomfortable with letting the kids roam! So highly recommended to anyone thinking about renting this beautiful home. The layout was perfect! The living area was large. Cant say enough positive things about the home. We will be back!

We loved every minute of our stay at Cayman Sands, especially the pool and the screen enclosed deck. We ventures around the island and recommend Rum Point, Starfish point, Stingray City sandbar, blow holes, the caverns, Smith Cove, Hell!!! and so much more. We even swam with dolphins at Discovery Cove. The home was well laid out and the kitchen fully stocked. There were even books, games to play, puzzles, movies and movies. The bunk room was perfect for cousins and kids to get some private time. The oceanfront master bedrooms were quit, private and splendidly decorated! We will come back soon.

This was a great home. We snorkeled every day off the beach out back, swam in the pool, relaxes in the lounge areas and gazebo, sat in the sun, took long walks and toured the island! Stingray City was the highlight, swimming and playing with stingrays. You must take a charter out there! We took a deep sea fishing trip and caught black fin tuna. We enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience watching baby sea turtles hatch right behind the gazebo.

We have been to Cayman many times, but this home was by far our favorite! The house is exactly how we would have our island home. We were there for 2 weeks. Our first week was spent introducing the island to our friends there for their first visit. We went to Rum Point, 7 mile beach, blow holes. We ate at Kaibo, Lighthouse, Pappagallo, Tukka and Over the Edge. Second week was just our family and we had family time. We visited the caves down the road, Big Tree BBQ, Kaibo, Mastic Trail, snorkeled of course, diving with Ocean Frontiers, Lighthouse and a tour of Caybrew Brewery. Best part was snorkeling right out front. There seemed to be alot of conch shells - we soon found out why - a beautiful huge southern ray!!! She comes for dinner every night around 5:15. Must be 4 feet wide and 7 feet long! Saw squids, spiny lobsters and all kinds of reef fish. All in all, a fabulous place to be, weather was perfect both weeks, slight breeze, calm waters. Would highly recommend! Thank you for opening your home to visitors - great chance to experience the island and all of is wonders!

This is a fantastic house right on the beach. They provide every single thing you need to have a fabulous stay. The house was immaculate when we arrived. We were a large group (12 + 20 month old). There was more than enough space for all of us. We did include the separate cottage. We never felt cramped or on top of each other. The kids were in the pool most of the week and when they weren't they were in the provided sea kayaks or snorkeling in the ocean. Each of us had our own bathroom as well. The house is on the north side of the island away from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. You will need a car to get around if you plan on doing anything other than relaxing (although that would be fine as well). There are a couple of small grocery stores but if you want to have more choices plan to drive to savanna to the fosters there. There is a cleaner that comes mid week and she is really nice and does a great job. The view of the ocean is breathtaking and the beach is awesome. I highly recommend water shoes for going in the water. I would recommend this house to anyone who has a large group of family or friends.

My wife and I were searching for a house with 5 bedrooms to accommodate our family of 10. Jim and Didi were great to work with. They made excellent suggestions, and answered all of our questions. Cayman Sands suited us perfectly. The house and property was well maintained, spacious, and very clean. Midweek, someone came and cleaned the house, pool service came and cleaned the pool, and the beach service cleaned the beach. In each case, those who performed the services were professional and courteous. In short, the property met our expectations. The only issue that was a little disappointing was, we didn't feel comfortable snorkeling at the house due to the sea urchins and their spines, but on the website it plainly warns about the issues with the sea creatures. The only issue we had with the house while there was with the alarm, which started beeping in the middle of the night. This happened intermittently during the night. We contacted the property manager the next day, and the problem was corrected promptly when reported. Our experience on the island was nothing short of wonderful, each of us hated to leave. We snorkeled at Rum Point, Smith Cove, Eden Rock, Cemetery Reef on 7 Mile Beach, we went to Stingray City, Dolphin Discovery, the Turtle Farm, and the Botanical Garden, and we enjoyed each of these. We felt very safe in traveling over the island which is not the case in many of the islands, and all we met were very friendly and made every effort to make us comfortable. My wife, daughter, and I had been to Grand Cayman once before. My son and his wife have visited two times before, and I'm sure we would all love to visit again. We rented our 2 vans from Mrs. McCurley, and she was helpful with a number of suggestions. I would like to give a special thanks to Melissa Wolf of Better angle photography for coming to the house and taking our wonderful beach photos for us to relive our trip in the years to come. Thanks for a wonderful vacation, Bruce

I recently stayed at Cayman Sands with my husband, my in-laws, and our 2 young girls, ages 4 and 6. This home is everything we could have asked for - as gorgeous as the pictures, but even fresher (the larger bedrooms have been painted since the online photos). It was very spacious and clean, and the location was great for us - quite private (even with folks staying in the neighbouring home) but a quick drive to Rum Point, which is a great beach for families with young kids with its calm water, extended shallows and sandy bottom. We had the pool heated - well worth it - as our daughters spent long hours in the pool. The beach area is nice - although it is true the water in this area is more suited to snorkelling than swimming or wading, it was fine for us with the pool right there for the girls, and snorkelling convenient for us. There is washed up plastic garbage if you walk off the property down the beach - which is not the fault of the property managers or the island, but an unfortunate consequence of garbage mismanagement elsewhere and tides/storms washing debris onto the shore. The villa is well stocked with kitchen items, pool toys, beach towels, etc... We took a great glass-bottom boat tour from Rum Point with Red Sail Sports - to Stingray City and for a bit of snorkeling. This was a nice way to go as the boat is smaller, so fewer people and plenty of time for everyone to handle the stingrays and get photos and video without feeling rushed at all. Did some nice diving off Macabuca near the Turtle Farm - can rent gear right there. I would recommend this villa without hesitation, and hope to stay here again in the future. Cayman is a beautiful, safe island, and easy to explore since it's not too big. Jim Leavitt and his staff were wonderful to deal with throughout our searching for and booking of this villa, and provided great information to us before we arrived. The cleaning lady who came mid-week (Sharon) was friendly and efficient.

A very fine, high end home with a well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bedrooms. The layout with 5 bedrooms all with ensuite baths (including the cottage) was ideal for my wife and I, our three adult children, their spouses, plus 3 grandchildren. Everybody had their own space plus we shared the large, screened deck with heated swimming pool, comfortable living area, and large dining area for eating and playing games. Being on the north side it is remote and the beach is not for swimming but we knew that going in and it was fine for us. When we did want to swim in the ocean we took a short drive to Rum Point or a longer drive to Seven Mile beach. 4 of 5 starsValue 5 of 5 starsComfort 4 of 5 starsLocation 5 of 5 starsCleanliness 5 of 5 starsCheck-in 5 of 5 starsService Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?

This villa is ideal for those looking to get away from the commercialism of Seven Mile Beach. However, this same distance is a trade off if shopping is your thing, though there are numerous nearby conveniences that cover all necessities when needed. The thorough information we received from Jim was invaluable and took out a lot of the guesswork of staying in someplace unfamiliar. We were able to plan shopping, activities, and all things just from the information provided! I wish I had a camera out to capture the excitement on the kids' faces (and ours) when we arrived at the villa! It exceeded expectations and we were amazed at how well equipped it was. Everything from decor, to dishes, pots and pans - it all was more than we were expecting! I was prepared to slip out to pick up anything further we might need, but all bases were covered and if anything, we had more than what was required. The view and location were stunning and while the kids explored the home and made use of the pool (such a foreign thought to me when the ocean was right outside the door), Laura and I slipped down to the beach just to hear/feel/smell the ocean. I was surprised at how quickly we were able to relax there, and after getting groceries and kids' rooms squared off, we were thoroughly able to enjoy ourselves. The snorkelling right outside the villa was fantastic, and early morning coffees enjoyed on the loungers by the ocean became our ritual. Our wedding here could not have been more perfect. We booked Joy Basdeo of Simply Weddings to perform the ceremony and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering the Villa for this reason. She has a wonderful charm that truly captures the island spirit and offered some wonderful suggestions to make it such a special day. We didn't do an elaborate wedding and it was a much more intimate thing for us and our kids only, but even so it felt like it was a lavish affair. Thanks to all involved for making our stay truly memorable!

It was an ideal choice for our family which varied in age from 65 to less than 1. The winds were very strong which may have made the ocean experience at the villa very difficult which may be unusual but prevented young children from using the ocean except at 7 mile beach and more protected areas at the East End. The pool made up for the lack of ocean especially with the small children. The negatives were a toilet that didn't work, no cleaning on Wednesday, no fresh water shower outside,and the chimes which rang whenever a door opened. 5 of 5 starsValue 5 of 5 starsComfort 4 of 5 starsLocation 4 of 5 starsCleanliness 4 of 5 starsCheck-in 4 of 5 starsService Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?

Over all the house was great. There were two things that we were disappointed in. The pool was never warm enough to use and even whenwe called was not fixed. The beach was so full of trash and the water was so rough we had to go to Rum Point or the other side of the island to enjoy it.



Manager Response:


Thank you for the review; but the pool is not heated in low season at all. It is shut down for the warmer months. December 15 begins high season, and then the pool heater is an optional expense. Sorry that the weather was cooler; a front must have brought in the cool air and flotsam on the beach; which we have raked 2-3 times a month.
