“Shhhhh. It's a secret!”

Well, I wish it was a secret! It's really NO secret that the Beachcomber is the nicest condo rental on 7-Mile Beach and this Unit #17 is among the tops in the rental pool. This 3-bedroom, 3 bath unit is owned by a man described by many I met on Grand Cayman as the 'nicest man' and I'll tell you he made a great landlord in our home away from home. Though I only had limited contact with Mike H. (and all by email before we were on Island) he could not have been more welcoming and that carried over to our stay when we felt we'd arrived home walking through the front door for the first time.

The pictures you see on this site of the condo and beach are spot on and if anything, do not do the condo or the beach justice. It is quite impossible to describe or capture in picture this magnificent stretch of sand. Everything in the description of Unit 17 and the Beachcomber property is exactly as you will find it; all you do is move in and live in luxurious comfort. I bought laundry soap at Food Fair across the street and left it behind for the next guest (as others had done with suntan lotions etc.), but otherwise all linens, toiletries and basic cleaning supplies (dish soap, paper towels, garbage bags) that you'd need are provided. There was even a nice assortment of beach toys to use.

Unit 17 is unique as 5 others on the property as having an extended patio partially screened and covered and partially open-air. It is also a corner unit so you have open views on the right side of the condo as well as the front. And any view of 7MB is fantastic! Honestly, I did not think that the extended patio would be such a big deal considering all units are Oceanfront with large balconies but the patio was fantastic and really provided a nice living space especially in the evening and early morning (sunsets and moon views pics provided with this review).

Beachcomber's location on the 7-Mile Beach Corridor is perfect. Not only is this arguably the best stretch of beach itself, there is a grocery store and small shopping mall (with a liquor store) across the street and several fantastic restaurants including the #1 rated restaurant on Grand Cayman (Sunshine Suites Grill) within walking distance so really unless you want to explore further there is no need to rent a car or spend lots of money on cabs.

The Beachcomber staff is perfection. Amanda made planning and check-in remarkably easy and friendly and the property manager Ernie was available 24-hours if needed and while he'd always have a nice smile and inquire after our needs, I never felt like he was intrusive or 'patrolling'. Amanda planned an express check-in for us as we arrived on a Sunday (when the office is closed) and from the time we left the airport in a cab to the time we were in our bathing suits - unpacked and swimming - was probably no more than 25 minutes.

A few property details. This might be the nicest pool on 7MB. The pool does not use traditional chlorine but rather mineral salts so it's easy on your eyes and skin. It's very large and never felt crowded. We did visit during what is considered a 'slow time' on the island and likely it would be much more crowded during the high season, but the pool is larger than any other condo pool I've experienced or seen on Grand Cayman so during high season other pools would likely have worse crowding problems including those at the Ritz and Westin (which seem crowded all the time). Elevators were clean and arrived quickly. The pool, patio, patio furniture and other outdoor areas, beach chairs and complimentary grills were all clean and functioning. One tiny point if I'd have to pick something is the cushions outside on the chaise lounges could use a refresh but I'm sure that will be coming in the September property overhaul. The beach was groomed daily and the property was patrolled by a friendly security guard at night, and though I've never felt our safety was a concern on Grand Cayman, all high-end properties seem to patrol for the additional security and comfort of their guests.

All in all Beachcomber Unit 17 is a perfect vacation, but shhhhh, keep it a secret! If you try to book and find this unit not available, do not fret too much. We met a few other owners enjoying their units during the slower season and they were all fantastic. You really can't go wrong at the Beachcomber.

“Beachcomber 17 is a little slice of heaven”
Reviewed April 25, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Beachcomber 17 is the ideal home away from home. It is close to the elevators and the stairs. It has a view of the ocean from almost every room! It is a cook’s dream vacation condominium because you can be in the kitchen and be a part of everything. Thanks for such a wonderful home we can borrow for the perfect vacation. We will request 17 again!

“7 Mile BeachComber #17 - Comfortable Luxury in Paradise”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Fantastic corner unit with surrounding glass windows for a panoramic view of the beautiful beaches. We have travelled all over the Caribbean and 7 mile beach is the best. We saw 3 "Green Flashes" this week so absolutely perfect sunsets from the balcony. The unit is beautifully decorated in a clean refreshing tropical decor. WIFI everywhere, free calling to the U.S., great selection of movies, big screen TV'S, and a great blender for Piña coladas. We spent every morning snorkeling right out in front on the Beachcomber Reef and saw stingrays, turtles, eels, lobster, and every kind of tropical fish. We love the Beachcomber.

“Breathtaking views in the heart of 7 Mile Beach!”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was my third trip to Grand Cayman and staying at The Beachcomber has made it the most memorable! This is a beautiful and spacious oceanfront condo with the most amazing views I have ever seen from the huge balcony! The beach is immaculate, and there is great snorkeling right in front of the property. You can't beat the location either- walking distance to a grocery store, shopping, and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I feel very fortunate to have stayed at one of the nicest condos on 7 Mile Beach and hope to come back again!
