First timers-need some direction to start our condo search.

Hello! We are first time visitors and are an active 60ish couple looking for a condo on a gorgeous sandy beach (most important) with easy entry, not too family oriented (kids), with some privacy and quiet but easy access with a car to grocery stores and restaurants. Also do not want a place that caters to cruisers. Don't need or want to be right in the thick of things. Our budget would be around 350 per night in February.Thanks!

thanks all, that helped. I checked out White Sands and it looks perfect. We really like being on a beach that's not busy and love smaller complexes like this. It will probably come down to VOG or White Sands. I saw listings for both on vrbo. Oh oh!! I just read back and saw that it was SILVER Sands mentioned not WHITE Sands.

From Villas of the Galleon, you will be within walking distance to stores and restaurants. Since Silver Sands in in the northern end of Seven Mile Beach, you would need a car or to utilize a public minibus system to get to more than a handful of small places. You could walk to the grocery store from there but it gets pretty hot walking in the Cayman sun.

Villas of the Galleon is right in between the Ritz and the Westin. Location couldn't be better. Within walking distance to Foster's Food Fair, excellent supermarket - closed Sundays as are many things on Island.

We are frequent travelers to Cayman and have many suggestions and tips, feel free to private message me for more specific info and recommendations.

We've decided to go with White Sands. Beach looks fantastic and it's the low key kind of place we were looking for.

We looked at that years ago and thought it would be a nice place to stay.
