I love the location of our Cayman condo! As soon as I arrive on island, I typically drive or walk over to Kirk's Supermarket (there is a direct walk path behind the condo), and we stock up on fresh fruits and snacks to enjoy in the condo. Of course, you can also walk a few more block to the famous Seven Mile Beach, and it's nice to spend some time just relaxing around the pool, which is only steps from the front door of our condo. There are several excellent restaurants in the area, and Camana Bay is full of restaurants, boutiques, a bookstore, movie theater, and spas- it's a great place to sit outside on the waterfront to relax and enjoy the fresh Caribbean breeze!
Our Cayman condo includes one free parking space, which is located right outside the front steps. I would suggest renting a car when you arrive to the airport, so that you're free to roam around the island and explore Grand Cayman island at your leisure.
To avoid fines from the complex, please do not leave any trash bags at the front door (there is a dumpster for garbage), and please do not hang any towels to dry on the railings outside (they won't dry outside anyways because of the humidity). Smoking is NOT allowed in the condo, and please take care of our home, as you would your own! :)
My friend and I just stayed in Carrie's condo for a week and absolutely loved it. The location was perfect so we were able to go anywhere we wanted to go on the island in a timely manner. The condo had a pool also which we relaxed at when we came back at the end of the day. My friend and I each had our own bathroom which was also a plus (so we were able to shower at the same time) which made getting ready to go out at night much faster! Carrie was always available via email for questions and making sure things were going smoothly which was very much appreciated! Would definitely recommend and go back!
Carrie was very helpful and fixed our wifi issue right away. She gave great recommendations and made us feel very welcome. The condo was in a good location close to be beach, but it was definitely a good idea to rent a car.
Hi Mary- thanks for the review! I just want to note to others that the only issue with wifi, is that we have to top-it-up with credit before new guests arrive because we never know how much credit the last guest used. It only takes about 2 minutes to top-up because we just go online and buy more credit.
Also, I always suggest that people rent a car because there are so many wonderful places to see in Cayman. You can walk to the beach, grocery store and Camana Bay from our condo, but venturing out to explore West Bay and East End is too much fun to miss. Driving out to East End is a scenic 30-45 minute drive, and there are several beautiful and historic places to stop and explore along the way.
Laying in a hammock and swimming in the ocean at Rum Point, while enjoying Conch Fritters and Mud Slides is on my Cayman ultimate relaxation must-do list. :)
My wife, 16 month old daughter and I had a great overall trip back to Cayman. We used to live there and this was our first trip back since leaving in '07. We decided save a few bucks and rent a condo rather than a hotel. Our experience with Carrie and her condo were good overall, with a few complaints regarding cleanliness of the unit.
First, the good - Carrie was an excellent host. Any messages I sent her with questions prior to our trip were answered quickly and thouroughly. Upon arrival, the sinks, tubs, toilets and linens were clean. The location was great, close to everything. The wifi wasn't working when we arrived, but I sent Carrie an email and she added credit to get it back up and running within an hour. When I mentioned the dirty walls/doors/cupboards etc (see below), she offered to have someone come and clean the place the next day. As our young daughter naps once or twice during the day, we declined as we didn't want someone in the unit cleaning while we were putting her down for a nap, but it was nice she offered. In short, Carrie was great.
The not-so-good - the photos on the Airbnb website must be old photos. The condo looks to be in tip-top shape from the pics. However, while the stuff we slept in, bathed in, or otherwise touched and used were clean, the place felt dirty overall. The doors, walls, trim, and cupboard doors were very grimey, like someone had been living there for an extended period and didn't wash thier hands the whole time they were there. There were greasy finger smudges on most of the vertical surfaces. I had to scrub some caked on food off a couple of door handles when we first arrived. The dresser drawers had a lot of debris in them, and when I crawled under the bed several times to retrieve my daughter's soother, it was very dirty under there (I am not one to normally check underneath beds, but I had no choice). We probably spent more time in the unit than a lot of people would, as we were back there once or twice a day for our daughter's naps, so we may have noticed these things more than others, but they are things I would want to be made aware of before shelling out my winter travel budget. Also, while the wifi "worked", I was only able to send basic text messages and emails using it. I could not email photos, nor upload pics to Facebook, nor watch a Netfilx movie on my iPad, the speed was very slow, though this is no fault of Carrie's.
In summary, we had a good experience overall, and Carrie was great. The condo just needs a very deep clean and paint job. If I was assured these things were done prior to coming back, I would definately stay there again.
Whew- I had to read this a few times, since the guest’s review was all over the place. Allow me to break it down for you with my comments below, so that you can move on with planning your Cayman vacation. Thx!

*The walls have been painted, so you are welcome to stay with us again….just remember this is Airbnb, so you are staying at our home.
- The WiFi wasn't working when we arrived, but I sent Carrie an email and she added credit to get it back up and running within an hour
*Note: I had the WiFi working in 5 minutes, but I guess this fall into “within an hour”
- I was only able to send basic text messages and emails using it. I could not email photos, nor upload pics to Facebook, nor watch Netflix movies on my iPad, the speed was very slow, though this is no fault of Carrie's.
*Note: You are correct, and slow WiFi on a Caribbean island is not my fault…this guest lived and worked in Cayman before, so he should know that the WiFi is not as fast on an island as it is in the US and Canada.
- Guest complained of dirty walls/doors/cupboards
*Note: The walls and doors have been freshly painted, and all guests that have stayed with us BEFORE this guest arrived have raved about the cleanliness of the condo.
I have stayed at Cayman hotels numerous times when the WiFi wasn't working at all, and the TV regularly goes out, if there is any bad weather or cloud coverage. It’s a small price to pay for living in paradise, and most people go to the Caribbean to DISCONNECT. The WiFi speed also depends on the time of day that you use the WiFi, and how many other people are using it on the island. We get WiFi from the MAYA-1, which is a big fiber pipe that travels through the ocean from Florida throughout the Caribbean.
Google MAYA-1, it’s pretty fascinating! I will take slow WiFi over no WiFi any day.
ENJOY YOUR VACATION TO THE CAYMAN ISLANDS!!!
Everything was fantastic. The space is huge, close to the supermarket and 7 mile beach. Loved that it had its own parking space. Carrie was very prompt with replies and I'd totally go back the next time I'm in GC!
Hi Annie! I am so happy that you enjoyed staying in our condo during your Cayman vacation, and I hope that you celebrated a happy Anniversary. It's funny that you said the space is huge in your review...our condo is a good size, but you're probably comparing it to the apartment sizes in New York City. :) Did you check out my closet? It's big enough to be it's own bedroom! Come back anytime, we'd love to have you. Thx!
I stayed at Carrie's place with friends and all of us enjoyed the trip on that beautiful island. First off, Carrie was very responsive and helpful with tips, the location of the condo was great, close to the main roads and the Seven Mile Beach but at the same time secluded enough to enjoy the calm after a busy day.
Carrie was a great host!
Her place in the Cayman Islands is amazing. It was clean and exactly as promised. Her place is about a 20 minute walk to the beach and right beside a grocery store - great location!
We didn't have internet for 3 days or water for 2 days but Carrie quickly got the problem fixed and was very responsive as soon as I let her know there was an issue.
I would definitely stay at Carrie's again if I go back to the Cayman Island.
