With mile after mile of pristine beaches and clear turquoise seas, Grand Cayman vacation rentals take full advantage of their surroundings. Villas and condos feature beach-friendly comfort, private pools, bikes and tranquil island views. Our unbiased reviews say it best and give you confidence in your selection. “The location was perfect … the lagoon, kayaks, bikes, pool and Rum Point Beach….” And from a luxury condo vacation renter – “a little haven of tranquility. It is bright, clean, furnished to a great standard….”
You will love the spirited blaze of color in the George Town capital and around the island. Perhaps perpetual sunshine demands the vibrant shades of purple, coral, sea green and mustard yellow that splash across island buildings. Groups, families and individuals enjoy all types of water adventures, from snorkeling and first class diving to turtle farm visits and simple beach picnics. Couples duck under the graceful casuarina trees for an exotic island cocktail along the more subdued Rum Point beach. The popular Seven Mile beach is close to everything and brimming with activity, so you’ll have no problem choosing the right tempo to suit your mood. Grand Cayman is a British territory and thriving financial center with over 600 international banks; so it’s easy to find many ways to contribute to the local economy. Pricey restaurants offer international cuisine, and local eateries deliver robust island fare with turtle, conch and Caribbean spices. Shopping choices mix duty-free luxury goods and fine jewelry boutiques with local specialty items and Cayman-esque souvenirs. Just be sure to remember your passport, now required of Caribbean-bound United States citizens.
The casual Market at the Grounds delivers a distinct Cayman atmosphere and taste. Enjoy home-cooked specialties, while you shop for traditional island crafts. Starvin’ Artists is a local artisan co-op with art, photography and crafts for every pocketbook. For a change from the many waterfront dining choices, you’ll find The Brasserie tucked away on Cricket Square in George Town. It’s a secret dining favorite with local corporate types, where customers enjoy the freshest of sea harvests, vegetables and fruits in a rich colonial setting.
Grand Cayman is not an inexpensive island destination, but you can avoid the high-end resort costs with your own luxury rental home. You’ll enjoy spacious living and the convenience of alternating meals cooked in your own villa kitchen with the pleasure of trying local restaurant choices. It’s the best of both worlds and one that will make you feel like a genuine islander!
