Cayman Sands is an oceanfront villa in Old Man Bay along the north coast. This popular villa is one of only two or three homes that offer shore scuba-diving off the famous Cayman Wall. With an open, one-story design, Cayman Sands offers guests an intimate experience across 4,000 square feet of living space, plus a one-bedroom guest cottage.
The main house features four-bedroom suites (king, queen, two twin beds, and four bunk beds) with en suite baths that have been completely re-tiled and renovated. For parties with more than four adult guests, the two twin beds can be converted to a king upon request. Both oceanfront suites have french doors that open up onto the screened pool atrium and sun deck. Cayman Sands was thoughtfully designed to be opened up on cool winter nights when air conditioning is not necessary.
The oceanfront freshwater pool is protected by a screened atrium keeping local wildlife and insects at bay from ruining your stay. Optional pool heat is available in the winter months for an additional surcharge. The pool atrium comes furnished with a sectional sofa and dining table, perfect for evening cocktails or outdoor dining.
The view of the large sandy beach is framed by the two wings of the house, an oceanfront gazebo, and two hammocks ideal for long afternoons relaxing with a book or simply enjoying the views.
An oceanfront vaulted great room floods the villa with natural light and stunning views through 30 feet of sliding glass doors. A recently upgraded kitchen offers all the modern appliances you would expect, as well as dishware, cookware, and cutlery. The living area is furnished with a wall-mounted TV, plush couches, and a sleeper sofa for small children only.
The guest cottage features a queen master suite with a kitchenette, screened porch, and a second-story balcony. The guest cottage is never rented separately to unrelated guests during your stay - it is there if you need it.
Cayman Sands can be rented in two configurations: as a four-bedroom villa which includes the main house only for up to 12 people (maximum eight adults), or as a five-bedroom villa to include the guest cottage for up to 14 people (maximum ten adults).
Centrally located, the homes in Old Man Bay offer perhaps the best shore diving and snorkeling on the entire island. The beaches are mostly sand, but can also have some natural rock formations too. Either way, with the varied marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The beaches here offer great seashell collecting and turtle sightings in summer!
Old Man Bay is only 5 minutes from two large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools and bar service.
Heading west, Kurt's Korner is a local restaurant within walking distance. Over the Edge restaurant is about one mile further west offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus at affordable prices. Another 15 minutes west of Old Man Bay is the famous Rum Point Club with water sports, restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and a barefoot beach with table service.
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.
