***Property Overview***
Escape the crowds of Seven Mile Beach for this peaceful North Side oasis in Grand Cayman. Welcome to Northern Lights, a 9-unit complex of privately owned two-story townhomes nestled in Old Man Bay, along the quiet north shore.

Northern Lights #5 is one of the few 3 bedroom units within the complex, measuring in at 2,400 sq. feet, and can sleep up to 8 guests.

Lush tropical landscaping surrounds this small sliver of paradise with 240 feet of sandy beach, sweeping panoramic views, and a protected coral reef teeming with marine life. Some of Grand Cayman's best snorkeling and dive sites can be found right outside your door. Alternatively, guests can relax above the waves on the complex's private dock, or lounge around the oceanfront pool soaking in the sun and beautiful views.

Inside, the downstairs layout is entirely open-concept and includes a full kitchen with modern appliances, a dining area, and a breakfast bar with seating for 8.

The living area has all the comforts of home with plush couches around a flat-screen TV and sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea. Relax with a movie after a day of fun and sun, or kick back on the screened terrace and bask in the beautiful Caribbean views.

Northern Lights #5 Bedroom Configuration
(Sleeps 8 guests total, 6 adults max)
-- Oceanfront Master Suite: Upper-level suite with a king bed, ocean views, private terrace, and an ensuite bath
-- Guest Bedroom: Upper-level bedroom with a queen bed, garden views, and an ensuite bath
-- Bunk Room: Main level bedroom with two sets of bunk beds that can sleep 4 children or 2 adults and a bathroom across the hall

The home is equipped with central air conditioning but trade winds tend to keep the home cool throughout assisted by multiple ceiling fans. A washer and dryer unit comes included and is located on the main level.

The owner provides a complimentary tandem kayak for guest use with a signed waiver required. A charcoal grill is also provided for island cookouts!

Nearby, Northern Lights is within minutes of a small grocery store, some of the best restaurants on-island, and the iconic Rum Point Beach. The airport and Seven Mile Beach are roughly a 40-minute drive away.

Northern Lights #5 is the perfect destination for sun-seeking guests looking for peace and quiet away from the crowds of Seven Mile Beach.

1) A Cleaning Fee may be required due to enhanced cleaning, sanitation, and inspection protocols.
2) Silver Thatch tandem kayaks available for discounted rental. Signed waiver required.

***Villa Cleaning & Sanitation***
-- We're committed to the health and safety of all our guests and have adopted enhanced cleaning safeguards to suppress the spread of COVID-19. All villas are cleaned and sanitized prior to each guest's arrival using health agency-approved cleaners and disinfectants. We also ask our owners to provide a starter supply of extra cleaning products.

***Beach Notes***
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Queen owns up to the high watermark. Be advised, the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images displayed due to 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 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.

Amazing communication during a difficult time
We unfortunately did not get to spend what would have been an incredible week at this villa in Grand Cayman due to the pandemic. But the communication we received from Grand Cayman Villas was above and beyond anything we could have anticipated. Consistent, clear, frequent emails letting us know where things stood regarding the island, the airport and what they were doing in their end to help us. Because of this we will be ecstatic to rebook this villa when all of this is over and we are able to finally visit Grand Cayman for the first time!

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful atmosphere!
We stayed at Northern Lights #5 last year. Enjoyed our stay so much that we had to come back. This property is exactly as described. Fully stocked kitchen and nicely furnished living room and bedrooms. With the unit being located on the North End of Grand Cayman, the location is very quiet and relaxing. Plus it is only a short drive from Rum Point. We plan on coming back again to Northern Lights #5 next year. :-)

5/5 Excellent

Perfect House With Perfect Snorkeling
This townhouse has everything you need, and is very well maintained. The best thing about it for us was just steps to a wooden pier in back, where you drop into the water (or down a ladder) and swim only about two minutes straight out to a beautiful reef. Saw Longfin Squid and a stingray in addition to a wide variety of fish. Five stars!

5/5 Excellent

What a gem!
