“Wonderful Stay at White Sands”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We just returned last night from our 10 day stay at White Sands # 3. We've traveled to Seven Mile Beach many times staying at Marriott, Westin, Cayman Reef Resort and London House and this was by far our favorite with London House coming in a close second. The unit is right on a pristine portion of SMB with easy / rock free access to the Caribbean Sea. The condo has an updated kitchen (The refrigerator had the best ice-maker I've come across. This was great for blending frozen cocktails) and bathroom (hair dryer included). Things were kept clean with daily service by the wonderful Paula who graciously brought us bread fruit from her tree. She gave us directions on how to prepare and it was delicious.
Margi was the property manager and was extremely helpful.

We love this end of SMB but it is a bit away from the main strip of bars and restaurants but if you rent a car or are willing to grab the bus, you will be fine. The upside of this end is very quiet. There are only 16 units in the complex and it is flanked on both sides by wooded areas.

While we loved unit # 3 we did have the opportunity to view unit 9. It was lovely and if unit 3 wasn't available, we would have no concerns about renting it.

“Relaxation in Paradise!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at White Sands #3 from October 9 - October 17, 2015. It's been really hard to come back to reality after our stay. White Sands is in a quiet area of Seven Mile Beach, away from the crowds and hustle and bustle of George Town. We found great restaurants close by and a convenient grocery store. We often would go out for the day for snorkeling or hiking and would come back for a leisurely swim in "our own beach" at the end of the day. The accommodations were clean and modern. The real experience of the beach right out our back door and incredible sunsets are only partially captured in the photos in the various reviews. If you want true relaxation on your own beach, shared with only a few, try White Sands #3.

Happy to hear that you loved White Sands #3 as much as we do! It's a great beach condo in an amazing location on Seven Mile Beach. We've mentioned the helpful feedback about the bedroom blinds to the owner. Looking forward to your return! Tropical greetings-Cayman Villas

“Remodeled condo in excellent location”
Reviewed December 21, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The inside of White Sands #3 looked brand new. Apparently it had been remodeled recently. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was annoyingly loud and the washer/drier took forever to dry and sounded like a jet engine. The bathroom surprisingly had no electrical outlet. That said, the buildings and grounds are well maintained. The location on the 7 mile beach is about as good as it gets. The sandy backyard leading to the beach had a number of trees that provided shade. Management was very responsive. A burned out light bulb was promptly replaced and a loose shower knob was fixed.

Thanks for you review of White Sands #3 and glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your candid remarks on the quirks of this condo-it was built 30 years ago but has been upgraded as you say! The dryer is an apartment sized one and does take a little bit longer that what you may be used to! The bathrooms were built without outlets 30 years ago and it's stayed the same! The bathroom fan is a matter of personal choice, I guess! The property owner chose a loud one! :) We would love to welcome you back to Cayman Villas for your next vacation in the Cayman Islands-we have lots of inventory to choose from! C
