Why Fred Campana chose North Side
We chose this property for many reasons. - Great location at Rumpoint - Great private pool surrounded by a tropical paradise - 1300 square feet of screened in patios - 2 kitchens, 2 dining areas - 3 living areas - fresh water rinse area for diving equipment - covered parking

Great place for bigger families, group travelers, several couples. Close to attractions while still located in a typical non touristic Cayman beach area.

Daughter’s 40th birthday trip!
We enjoyed our stay at Seaside. Everything we needed was there and it was a great way to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We enjoyed the pool, and walked across the street to the beach which was being cleaned up from a lot of trash and debris. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us and could have adequately accommodated a few more. The upstairs patio was a great evening and morning spot we absolutely enjoyed! By the time we left we finally figured out all the light/fan switches. There were a few areas that could have some updates/maintenance but overall we enjoyed our stay and absolutely would return for another stay as well as recommend this to family and friends.
Thank you so much for your stay at Seaside. Look forward to hosting you again soon
Fun in the sun
It was a wonderful house. Nice view and very private. Loved the location. Great staff that helped with the few non working things when we got there. So friendly and understanding. Hope to return.
THank you for your stay. Hope to see you again next year.
Great home base when on vacation with a family or a group on the East side
This house rental would be right for you, if you can answer 'yes' to all of the following three questions:
1. Do you want to be on the East side of Grand Cayman where the house is located? Grand Cayman has two worlds. The West side includes Georgetown and the Seven Mile Beach area. That area is highly economically developed with large hotels and condos including all the major luxury hotels. The cruise ships dock in Georgetown, and many, many places exist to eat, shop, party, etc. It is crowded and bustling. The east side of Grand Cayman is very different. It is much less developed (basically developed only along the coast hugging roads), much less crowded and moves at a slower pace. If you want that slower pace, the east side is for you. You can still get to the west side and Seven Mile Beach, but it will be a 50-60 minute drive.
2.Do you prefer space over high-end amenities? Having been stuck with each other in hotel rooms over the years at Marriotts and Hyatts, my grown family prefers space. This home comes with a lot of space. There are four sleeping areas (3 BRs and a loft), multiple screen covered outside sitting areas and two kitchens. The house is a little on the rustic side, but has fine appliances, strong air conditioning (a must on Grand Cayman), satellite TV and functional bathrooms (they aren't yucky, but it ain't the Ritz). The pool is clean and nice, but the night lights by the pool don't work very well. For us, this house was an excellent choice because we got the space we needed at a reasonable price. I would even say that the house is a bargain if you can get two families together to rent it.
3. Are you ready to drive to beaches and other Cayman amenities? While the house is close to the beach, it is not on the water. There's sort of a spooky vacant lot across the street that you can walk through to a beach that not very nice. However, the house is a 3 minute drive from Rum Point beach, which is the epitome of east side laid back Cayman fun. Rum Point has restaurants and bars on the beach, many recliners and hammocks available free to the public, decent snorkeling (great spot for beginners and kids) and is a hub for booking snorkeling tours and activities. Other close by activities are the Botanical Garden - Blue Iguana Sanctuary, Starfish Beach and the Grand Cayman Caves (all are nice 90-120 minute long activities).
In closing, this house is great if you can answer yes to the above three questions.
Thanks very much for your review and most of all, your precious feedback on things to improve. Most of them we addressed immediately, since we stayed at the house right after you guys left.
We are glad that your family enjoyed the island, particular the charm of North Side.
Hopefully you visit soon again:)
Great house! All of our needs were met! Beautiful surroundings!
Wonderful property! Wished the beach would have been useable across the street....however we understand that timing is everything and we were there during the North westerly winds. The property was clean and well stocked. Ample room for the 9 of us!
thank you for your review Lisa. I am glad that you enjoyed the property. please let your friends know about us.
Great Family Home
This is the real Cayman experience. No crowds, no flashy hotels. This place is a lovely, spacious family home. It is on the North side of the Island so you are close to Caves, Stingray, Starfish Point, the Botanical Gardens, and Rum Point. All of the screened in porches make one so comfortable with no mosquitoes even though you are basically outdoors. The pool is so pretty and there are resident iguanas and parrots ( you have to watch out to see them as they prefer their privacy). If you are going to cook, buy groceries at Hurley's or Foster's on your way from the airport because they is little near the house. Seafood for cooking is most difficult to find, but On the Edge restaurant 3mi. from the house will sell you some at a premium. Also, bring your own soaps, shampoos, trash bags, paper towels, etc. as they are not provided. The house is so great for families and the spacing of the 3 bedrooms and baths give privacy to all. Beds are comfortable with nice sheets and good pillows. There are plenty of towels. Kitchen is small but has lots of helpful kitchen items. We are so thrilled that we got to stay in the house and all eight of us (two children) would not want to stay anywhere else for any reason when we come back.
Thanks Helen for your review and detailed response. It helps us to improve and other travelers to plan their trip. Like you sad, it Is the original Cayman life you experience here, while still having the option to check out the fancy Seven Mile Beach area.
Hope to welcome you back soon:)
Homey Appeal & Great Pool
We quickly became comfortable at Seaside. At first, we did notice that it could use some minor repairs and updates, but those little things didn’t bother us for long. We felt right at home, it was clean and its charm grew with each passing day. We enjoyed our coffee to the sounds of the sea every morning from the screened in balcony. It is within a couple of miles of a beautiful beach at Rum Point. We loved the quiet Northside of the island and the fact that the shoreline was very natural. It was definitely more our style than the busy Seven Mile Beach area. We recommend renting a car for the week. Be sure to make a stop at Hurley’s Market for groceries and a nice selection of delicious locally prepared dishes you can pick up on your way to Seaside. Also, another stop to a wine and spirits store near Hurley’s to stock up. You will want to make as few trips back to busy Georgetown as you can. We arrived on a Sunday and found the island observes a long-lost tradition of most businesses being closed on Sunday. Including grocery stores. We had delicious meals on GC. We especially recommend the Lighthouse Restaurant (we ate there twice) and the Monday evening BBQ at Rum Point. The Italian Kitchen in the Morritt’s Plaza is worthy for Italian food or pizza. Swimming with the stingrays at Stingray City was a high point of our trip. Do not miss it! There is a small public park just beyond Rum Point next to the Kaibo Yacht club where we saw quite a number of starfish within a few feet as we walked along the crystal clear shoreline. Also enjoyed the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Gardens which is nearby. All in all a great time at Seaside! Hope to return someday.
A big THANK YOU Cathy for your review.
It is a great feedback for us and great advise for other travelers.
We are proud to say that since your visit we upgraded the house and garden excessively. And further improvements are happening. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon on the island:)
