This condo was beautifully decorated and was better stocked than many I've rented. The only thing I needed to buy was laundry soap. It had very good kitchen equipment. We stayed in unit 15 with 2 bd and 2 bath. The central Seven Mile Beach location with the Fosters grocery and numerous restaurants right across the street or within a very short walk means you really don't need a car. The numerous grills on the property were a plus. Infinity pool was beautiful. Beach with nice lounges, umbrellas, tables and chairs. Some OK snorkeling off the beach with some small coral growth and some fish. Condo was in good repair with only a few spots of chipped paint here and there. Cleanliness was not perfect. We arrived to a stained towel nicely folded and hung with the stains clearly visible in the Master Bath. It was promptly changed when I notified housekeeping. Detailed dusting had not occurred. The fake orchid and tops of picture frames and lamp housings all had a pretty heavy coating of dust that left a nice mark when I ran my finger through it. Obvious horizontal surfaces were clean. I was slightly miffed to read in the Beachcomber handbook that dishes are the guests responsibility. I don't want to do dishes on vacation and other properties I've stayed at included dishwashing. Once I left a clean dishwasher with dishes in the sink. On return, the dishwasher was still full, but the dishes were on the side of the sink instead of in it. If they did attempt to wash them, they weren't sufficiently clean and I had to do them anyway so I am not sure if they piled them there to clean the sink or actually washed them badly. Housekeeping did make a valiant effort to keep the condo swept of sand. Fresh beach towels were in plentiful supply. There are no locks on any bathroom or bedroom doors so don't expect your privacy to be assured. Not great for mom and dad with kids along. Finally, the beds were made with only the thinnest of covers. I understand it's the Caribbean, but I still like a bit of weight on me when I sleep. There were no blankets otherwise to be found. The Master bedroom in the unit also was on the street side of the condo with significant road noise requiring ear plugs for this finicky sleeper. But the beds themselves were comfortable. Also no privacy as the master bedroom window faced the walkway going to all the condos. Nice fireworks and s'mores over bonfires on the beach for the Fourth of July. Management was helpful in providing recommendations for local tours. Paddles boards were delivered to the beach by Cayman Stand Up Paddles.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seven Mile Beach is truly a world-class beach, set against a dazzling backdrop of tropical landscaping. It could be described as an elite neighborhood of mostly luxurious, private ownership condominiums fronting on the white sand beach and crystal clear turquoise sea. In every such waterfront neighborhood however, there are “special pockets” – sites that rise above the others in terms of beach quality and The Beachcomber is one of these! ... more less
