Welcome to Babylon Reef, a freshly renovated oceanfront villa, with sundeck and private pool, situated directly on one of the best shallow snorkelling sites on the entire island. Protected by a coral reef, there are rarely any currents or waves to contend with, so children can play in the shallows all day.
The villa offers three bedrooms and two and a half baths accommodating a large family or two smaller families. The ocean views are stunning as soon as you walk through the front door. Natural light and scenic ocean views flood the entire living area through the sun room's tall sliding glass doors which can be opened to allow a breeze to flow through on days when air conditioning is not necessary. Cute Caribbean architecture and a modern open concept design lend a great 'island feel' throughout. A full modern kitchen complete with standard equipment and appliances overlooks the dining area with seating for six. An outdoor dining table off the pool deck and under tall palm trees is also available.
The ground floor master suite includes an en suite bathroom, king bed, and direct access to the pool and sunroom. Guest bedrooms on the upper floor share a large bathroom and come furnished with a king-size bed and two twin beds. Both twins can be converted to a king bed upon request.
Babylon Reef's private, well-landscaped lot includes a white picket fence, soft zoysia grass lawns and a large sandy backyard around the pool. The owner provides a cornhole set on the beach complete with boards and bean bags, plus kayaks for exploring beach hammocks for relaxing, and an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water.
With an empty lot on each side, Babylon Reef is a quiet and private retreat. The beach here can be both sandy and pebbly depending on the time of year, however, we advise guests to bring pool shoes to avoid foot injuries. Two large resorts with water sports, manicured sandy beaches, and oceanfront bars and restaurants are just a short ten-minute drive east.
Babylon Reef has the best "backyard snorkeling" on the entire island. Just east of famous Connally's Cove, Babylon Reef has shallow snorkeling where no fins are really needed, but you should still wear pool shoes. The beach here can be sandy and pebbly, depending on the time of year and mother nature. The owner maintains a sandy beach inside the white picket fence above the shoreline for sunbathing, beach games and lounging in the hammock under the palm trees. There are two large resorts 10 minutes east fo Babylon Reef, as well as restaurants, water sports, shopping, and a grocery store. Tukka Restaurant will even send their van for door-to-door service if you don't feel like driving to dinner!
General Grand Cayman Beach Notes
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high watermark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.
Ocean Debris and Sargassum Seaweed
Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally. Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. The owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. We try our best to work around mother nature.
