Overview

About the property

Private Cayman Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths - 200' Pool & Kayaks - Quiet

Welcome to Windward Cove. This is where you want to be in Grand Cayman. Hidden away in Gun Bay on the tranquil East End of Grand Cayman with more than 200 feet of private sandy beachfront, Windward Cove's beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom villa is in the ideal location. Everyone's flat out favorite spot is our 50 foot wide elevated screened porch overlooking the crystal blue ocean, and glorious sunrises.

Where else can you have privacy, breathtaking views, and still be centrally located, with so many conveniences close to your villa (grocery, restaurants/bar, liquor store, water sports operations, etc). Rum Point, The Botanical Gardens, and Blow Holes are right nearby as well.

Windward Cove is very close to Fosters grocery store, Jacques Scott Liquor store, local gift shops, and many fine restaurants and watering holes including Tukka (just a 1/4 mile stroll from the villa), Eagle Rays @ Ocean Frontiers, Taco Cantina, The Italian Kitchen, The Lighthouse, Over The Edge, and more. Two eateries serving local cuisine (Big Tree BBQ & Vivine's Kitchen) are also within short walking distance from Windward Cove.

Top water sports operations are less than 2 miles from the villa. The famed Ocean Frontiers Dive operation is only 1/2 mile away. The opposite way down the road is Red Sails Water Sports & White Sands Water Sports which offer jetski/waverunner rentals and tours, wind surfing, stand up paddle boards, kayaks and more.

Kite Beach is the place for kite surfers and is even closer. They offer lessons and equipment from a top notch instructor, and provide a location to launch, and you can also launch right off Windward Cove's sandy beach as well.

There's a reason we have so many beach pictures on our site. We have a really great Beach! The beach and water at Windward Cove is ideal for all ages (a giant sandbox for young children) with many shallow pool areas, and even more fun further out. Snorkeling the many coral heads in the waters right out back is a favorite activity for many of our guests, as is swimming in the calm reef protected waters.

Why Jack and Maria chose Gun Bay

After renting villas on the island for 25 years, we decided this was the absolute best location on the island, and we built Windward Cove. We made sure to add all the best and necessary aspects of all the villas we rented, especially the screened porch with 180 degree views, and protection for those rare occasions when the gentle breezes are still. Living outside, while inside. We love the complete privacy, beach, ocean environment, snorkeling, and overall superior quality of life here.

What makes this villa unique

Fully owner-operated & managed, we do our best to pass these savings onto our guests. No Guest Service Fee. Frequent discounts. We always strive to under-promise and over-deliver. Unmatched Privacy. Beauty. All sand Beach with lots of shade. A large pool. Great snorkeling. Very convenient location to stores and water sports operations. It's where you want to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maria & Jack - We had a lovely stay-cation at Windward Cove. A great get away from the hustle and bustle of SMB! Thanks for sharing your home with us. The home, beach and location are all great. We enjoyed 2 days of diving with Ocean Frontiers, bike riding, swimming, walking the beach and just relaxing.

Thanks again. J & B.

Great place to stay - beautiful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful stay away from the hustle and bustle of seven mile beach, then this is for you.

The host could not have been more accommodating and helpful. All our needs were taken care of and she really made us feel at home.

We have been to a number of Caribbean islands and we always book from VRBO. This is the first review I'm leaving because we were so impressed.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a family friendly stay. We arrived here with two very young children and there were toys, a high chair, and a pack n play to make our stay easy.

This is a no brainer, you will love it.

Lovely private beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman but our first to the East End. It was a totally different experience. Quiet and relaxing. Fine snorkeling off the beach and nearby. Wonderful restaurants within a mile or so. Maria was very accommodating.

Perfect private family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I (early 60s), our children & their spouses (late 20s - early30s), and our grandchild (12 mos.) had a spectacular week at Windward Cove. The house is perfectly designed for a group with its four bedrooms off the central living/eating areas, infant/toddler friendly, and immaculately clean! Sliding glass doors extend from one side of the house to the other at the back and open to the full-width-of-the-house screened porch. There is excellent snorkeling in easy swimming/kayaking distance from the utterly private beach. When we ventured off-site, we sampled the owners' suggested restaurant options (and found them all delicious and delightful), and we loved our outings to Crystal Caves, Stingray City, bioluminescent bay kayaking, and scuba diving. Highly recommend this property!
