I can tell you that when we stayed at Plantana for 6 visits, we would request only unit #10 - ground floor, direct beachfront view unobscured by the pool, and no adjacent neighbors.

Water's Edge does not do daily rentals. I believe they, like the Pinnacle, will only rent for a minimum of a month.

Perfect thank you very much. Do we go thru the front office or is it VRBO? Thanks again.

I have never used vrbo and always book directly with the management. You can see the locations and unit #s at Plantana's website plantanacayman.com

Just be sure you tell them exactly which unit you want.

Plantana is great.. Always book directly with office as they usually have specials. We always book ground floor oceanview typically # 6. But you can't go wrong with any unit. Great complex!

All oceanfront units at Plantana are not equal in proximity to the beach and expanse of the view. A little history........... Plantana is comprised of 3 building groups. Previously, they were "A" "B" and "C". The units in building A were closest to the beach and proced higher than B or C. The C building was furthest from the beach with the lowest oceanfront rates. A number of years ago, Plantana fixed the same oceanfront rate to all of the buildings, meaning that the rate for a unit furthest away from the beach is the same as for those right in front. A bit unfair and deceiving, if you ask me. The majority of the units face the pool, with a view of the sea beyond that. We are bothered by pool noise and having neighbors separated only by screens, and chose #10. It is closest to the beach and offers the privacy we prefer.

All of Plantana's units are spacious, modern and attractive. The beach is great and location is ideal. I would suggest you ask to be placed in a unit closest to the beach so you get your money's worth and are not stuck looking at a pool or back near the office. Unit #12 is great, as is #9, they offer extra living space and 3 sets of sliders facing the ocean. Only hitch there is if the adjoining unit is occupied and, hopefully, not with a noisy group on their patio.
