Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Baths, Two Story Beachfront Home, with Dock, Pool, and Kayak

Indulge in relaxation, recreation, and romance at the “Ocean Pearl” beachfront villa. Here you can discover the natural side of Grand Cayman, escape your busy life and enjoy peace and tranquility. Part of the Northern Lights development, we are one of just nine privately owned townhomes and are bordered by the Salina Nature Reserve and Babylon Reef. While our location is only a 35 min drive from the cosmopolitan city of Georgetown and its famous Seven Mile Beach, this property leaves you feeling like you are the only one on the island.

The two story, 2 bedroom/3 bath “Ocean Pearl” is a corner unit surrounded by windows that flood the villa with Caribbean sunshine. With an open concept design and 10 foot ceilings throughout, the home is bright and spacious. Though the unit has its own central air conditioning you may seldom use it as the plantation shutters and multi panel doors open to create a seamless transition to outdoor spaces (screened lanais), inviting cool trade breezes and spectacular ocean views.

The master bedroom highlights include a private balcony, jetted soaker tub, king bed, and a flat screen TV. The second bedroom has two twins that can be made into a king using a conversion kit, depending on guest preference, and a second full bathroom. For larger groups, there is a queen convertible sofa in the living room with a half bath on the ground floor main level for convenience.

The fully stocked kitchen with breakfast bar looks out to an ocean/pool view. Appliances include dishwasher, range, microwave, side-by-side fridge with ice maker and water dispenser, Keurig and standard coffee makers, and a blender. Should you choose not to cook, there are several simple and elegant ocean side restaurants within 10 minutes of the property that offer food and entertainment. There is also an outdoor grill, picnic basket, coolers, beach chairs and towels for guests to enjoy beach picnics here or at any of Grand Cayman's fabulous beaches.

Steps from our ground floor lanai is a freshwater pool surrounded by cobblestone decking and mature gardens that lead to a private 240 foot white sand beach and dock. Enjoy the thatch covered cabana at the end of the dock that's perfect for watching sunsets and passing rays or turtles. The dock also features a swim ladder and platform for easy access to world class snorkelling and shore diving at Babylon. Guests are welcome to wander down the beach after bonefish on nearby sand flats. The natural beach provides a great opportunity for beachcombing and exploring tidal pools, while the grounds host a variety of birds including Cayman parrots and Caribbean doves.

Other amenities of the unit include free WiFi, free local calls, washer/dryer, and flat screen TV's with full cable packages in both the living room and master bedroom. There is also a stereo and blue-ray player to enjoy a variety of classic music and movie disks housed in the entertainment center. The rental includes weekly housekeeping with additional maid and grocery delivery services available upon request. We have an on-island unit manager available to assist guests and are licensed with the Ministry of Tourism and Accommodation.

We offer discounts for extended stays of 10 days or more that are not reflected on the VRBO/HomeAway rental quotes so please contact us.

About Angela

Raised in the Yukon Territory of Northern Canada, it is rather fitting we ended up at a place called the Northern Lights. We are fisheries biologists in British Columbia, Canada.

Angela purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Angela chose North Side

Our upbringing and profession attracts us to wild natural places, while our increasing age attracts us to amenities, hence Grand Cayman North Side.

What makes this townhome unique

The property is near everything yet leaves you feeling like you are the only one on the island. The snorkelling and shore diving off Babylon is spectacular! On your morning run you won't see traffic or people but you will see agouti, parrots, egrets...You get the picture.

Hidden Jewel on the North Side

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from our second stay at the Ocean Pearl, it's with some hesitation that I write this review, as we kind of want it to be our own little hidden gem. However, it would be unfair not to share how absolutely perfect a place it is.

You'll be impressed by the prompt and informative communication, the décor and cleanliness of the home, the warmth and professionalism of the owners and management, as well as the beauty of the grounds and the impeccable way they are maintained. Everything you need for a great vacation is there. We have stayed in many VRBO properties through the years and this is how a vacation rental should be run!

It's the location though, which makes it so special. On the quieter north side of the island, conveniently located a short drive from grocery and liquor stores, dive shops and some of the best restaurants on the island. The best part is the fact that you can walk right out your door onto the beach and crystal clear water which delivers probably the best snorkeling I've ever experienced. Literally like swimming in an aquarium!

You're still not far, though, from Georgetown, Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point, etc., if you so choose, but believe me, you'll look forward to getting back to your home away from home. Thanks Angela for allowing us to share it once again. It truly is an Ocean Pearl!

Words cannot express

  • 5 of 5

Although I will try to say how very much we enjoyed our stay, there really are no words. From the moment we walked into the townhome until the moment we left, we loved every minute. The home was more than we expected. Everything we needed was right there. The unit was so clean. And the decor showed a personal touch not often found in vacation homes. The pool was perfect for my husband's daily swim. I loved the fact that I could listen to the ocean waves even with the windows closed. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had.

Nice quite Cayman Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Cayman islands before and this place was very nice and very Quiet.

Just what we were looking for! It's not 7 mile beach busy but, the island is so small that it's an easy drive from everything. Will stay there again!

Everything was very easy, and the unit has everything you need to enjoy the Pool, Beach and cooking in.

Snorkeling was excellent once you realize the water isn't very deep out by the reef.

Ian was also very nice and helpful.

Fantastic .... what else to say?

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this spot. Fishing right of the wharf with my small kids. A pool for them to frolic in, literally out the door. And the ocean in the view.

Around the corner, North of Gun Bay, is a great spot for kitesurfing.

If you are a good swimmer and understand currents, swim 500m out to the buoys and snorkel an amazing reef.

Nice house.

Absolutely Fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing townhouse and location for those relaxed days and having everything one would need at your fingertips. A very clean and well equipped accommodation. The views are breathtaking and grounds are well maintained. This location was perfect for us as we like to venture out around the island but loved coming home to a peaceful setting. We basically had the place to ourselves and the pool as well. We would usually lunch out and BBQ dinner at home watching the sunset. The property manager, Ian, is there to assist in anything you need. What a wonderful person. Rum point is not far to sun and swim but get there early as it can be crowded. You can also get food and drink there. If you venture past Rum Point there is better beach area for walking and you will see starfish galore. There is also a fabulous restaurant on the beach, Kaibo.. Reservations upstairs for dinner... From the house towards the grocery store is Frank's Kitchen... Best Italian we have had... Our favourite spot was White House for a relaxing day sunning and using the pool. Food was excellent. A must see....The only thing I would say is that other than Seven mi. beach you will need water shoes as the island is surrounded by coral which makes swimming difficult. This is a great place for Scuba and snorkelling. I would also recommend renting a car. I think it is a must. We used McCurley's.. They pic you up at the airport, take you for a 20 min shop for necessities and you arrive at Angela & Scott's with a rental car waiting for you... They also live next door... So convenient... All in all a 10 out of 10, even the weather! ... Many thanks to Angela, Scott and Ian for making this a top notch vacation.. We will be back..
