Welcome to Great Bluff Estates, a gated oceanfront villa with pool set into the bluffs of Grand Cayman’s Northside. This recently renovated 5-6 bedroom home offers a large family all they could want from excellent snorkeling steps off the backyard to a stunning elevated sundeck and freshwater pool.
The curb appeal of Great Bluff Estates includes a cobalt-blue tiled roof, bright white stucco exterior and a terra cotta circular driveway that can easily accommodate multiple rental vehicles. The home offers multiple oceanfront decks and balconies, 2 tiers of terraced artificial grass near the shoreline, two cabanas, and a new concrete ocean path entrance. The beach here is naturally pebbly, so the owner maintains a raked sandy area for water access.
Snorkeling here is amazingly diverse due to very few homes in the area and very few people in the water on a given day. We tend to see spotted eagle rays, octopus, lobster, eels and, of course, many juvenile fish inhabiting the coral heads. There is also rarely any current in the waters here.
