New to Our Portfolio: Upgraded Villa with Private Saltwater Pool & Spa

Envision is the new name for this recently renovated beach house on Cayman's North Side with backyard snorkeling, a sandy beachfront, plus a private pool with spa.  

The home sits on an oceanfront lot with a vacant lot to the east and the North Side cemetery to the west. The cemetery is visible from the driveway. Tall foliage and a large buffer area block its view from other parts of the home. 

Reasonably priced for larger families, Envision is a two-level home featuring an open floor plan with a large family room on the lower level. Furnished with a comfortable sectional sofa and large television, guests will find plenty of space to spread out, relax, and enjoy the sweeping ocean views. Exposed beams and vaulted ceilings accentuate the views while also filling the home with natural light.

A small den sits off the family room furnished with a desk and sleeper sofa. It's a nice spot to curl up with a book for some quiet time or a daytime nap. Work-from-home professionals can retreat to the den to connect remotely with the office while vacationing in style.

The new saltwater pool with spa overlooks a large sandy beachfront that leads to excellent snorkeling just steps from the back door. The beach offers plenty of sunning space with no immediate neighbors to the west and North Side's cemetery beach to the east. The beach is lined with palm trees and comes equipped with a beach cabana for shade plus seaside hammocks.

Spa heat is included from Thanksgiving to Easter. In the summer months, it is available for a US$50/day surcharge.

A large oceanfront sun porch on the edge of the pool deck is the perfect place to dine or relax after a day of sun and surf. The dining table is usually set up with seating for 6-8 guests. The owner and property manager are attentive to maintenance and keep everything just right for guests.

The villa's 5 bedrooms are spread across the upper and lower levels. The primary suite plus two bedrooms sit on the lower level with the remaining 2 bedrooms upstairs. The upper-level bedrooms are ideal for kids and teens due to their low ceilings.

The outdoor sun decks flank both sides of the pool with 2-3 sun loungers each. An outdoor kitchen on the west side of the villa features ample counter space and a propane grill for island cookouts.

Beach Notes

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The beach at Envision offers great reef-protected snorkeling while also having a sandy beachfront adjacent to the North Side "Cemetery Beach". The beaches in North Side usually have plenty of white sand, but can also have some spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations.  With the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection.  The prevailing trade winds from the east make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes on the north coast don’t even need a screened porch.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club (restaurant reopens summer 2023) that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many watersports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games.  Also nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar, and marina

Lastly, we have two large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, beach bars, a modern grocery store, a liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and the Italian Kitchen restaurant. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools, and bar service.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Crown owns up to the high water mark 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 & 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. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation.

We try our best to work around mother nature.

Unreal vacation rental


         
Review by Brendon on 03/08/2023
5 out of 5
There were 11 of us staying here with little kids (ages 6yrs to 9 mos) and this was absolutely the perfect spot. Combination of having a pool, hot tub, and private beach access allowed us to really enjoy staying around the property on days we didn’t want to explore the island.

December Escape


         
Review by Sandon on 01/08/2023
5 out of 5
My partner and I stayed at Envision for a week for a tranquil escape from our busy city lives. The place was perfect. Bright, spacious, elegantly designed and incredibly comfortable. The primary bedroom and main living area provide incredible views of the water. The beach is private and a perfect place to relax in the sun during the day and stargaze at night. It is also just steps away from a lively coral reef and snorkeling gear is available. The property is conveniently close to many of the natural wonders of Cayman - bioluminescent Bay, the Crystal Caves and all that Rum Point has to offer. There are some excellent restaurants nearby though, for those who like to cook, the kitchen is spacious and fully stocked. My one complaint: that I had to leave!

Best Family Holiday Ever


         
Review by Jerry on 12/01/2022

Our family and friends (two families, 4 adults and two teens and two pre-teens) stayed at this beautiful villa for a week during March break 2022. What a home. Clean and well-appointed with everything that we needed including kitchen items, towels, beach chairs, hot tub (which was amazing in the evenings) and an available manager to reach out to if needed (which we did once for information on restaurants and who responded to our text within two minutes!). The location on the north shore was perfect for us as we wanted something quiet and away from the bustle of seven mile beach. Rum Point was close by and, even though the restaurants were closed at the time due to Covid, we went almost every day to enjoy the beauty and the starfish! There is a grocery store with alcohol within walking distance and three restaurants within a 10 minute drive. The beach in front of the villa is sandy and warm. The water is perfect for snorkeling due to the coral reef being 10 metres from the shore (we saw an octopus on the first day). Given the coral reef, for small kids it is worth the drive to Rum Point (about 10 min) which has a longer sandy entrance to the water and more room to play in the water. Our group are snorkelers, and we went out every day in the morning. The beach area in front of the villa is also completely private and we only saw one neighbour one day in the whole week. We loved it so much, we are going back this year in April.
