Turtle Nest Inn & Condos, Grand Cayman -- affordable and authentic

Cayman Island hotels now include Turtle Nest Inn & Condos, an exotic, beachfront alternative to the large hotel chains and pricey condo complexes. This intimate inn in a genuine island setting offers superb snorkelling, two fresh water pools, sandy beach and fully-furnished apartments and condos. Turtle Nest Inn & Condos is affordable because a full apartment at the inn, with complete kitchen, is less costly than a standard room in most Grand Cayman hotels. The inn is unique in that it combines the comfort and cooking facilities of a condominium, with the ambience of a hotel and service on a par with Europe's best country inns.

Cayman's Turtle Nest Inn & Condos, encompassing three buildings, is intimate and elegant; In the original building, there are only eight apartments within the stunning, Spanish-style architecture, highlighted by whitewashed walls and cooling terracotta tiles. And you can relax in the seclusion of the outdoor terrace, surrounded by graceful arches, or on the uncrowded beach. In addition, there are ten condos spread over the other two buildings, all three just a few feet apart. Turtle Nest Inn & Condos is exotic because it epitomizes the island paradise style, with beautiful stretches of beach and the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean -- yet it's just 10 miles from George Town and the airport, but "off the beaten track", and far from the maddening crowds.

The Inn and Condos, situated in the quaint and charming village of Bodden Town, is also authentic. Unlike "tourist strip" lodging, the Inn allows you to access the heart and soul of the island. "To stay in Bodden Town is to get a real taste of the Cayman Islands and its people, to experience and enjoy a unique Caribbean culture and lifestyle at very close quarters." Since its March 27th 1999 opening by the Caymanian Minister of Tourism, Turtle Nest Inn & Condos has received rave reviews from the local and international press, members of parliament and departing guests. For a different island experience, don't delay reserving!

At Cayman's Turtle Nest Inn & Condos, you'll enjoy superb snorkelling in the Caribbean, sunning on our sandy beach, and swimming in our pool. "The beach behind the (inn)...is wider than some parts of Seven Mile Beach. The beach is also empty...and the sea floor inside the reef offers snorkellers close-up views of abundant coral and tropical fish." (Editorial in the Caymanian Compass)  You'll also experience the island's other attractions, including scuba diving, golf, the Turtle Farm, the Butterfly Farm, Seven Mile Beach, Stingray City, the Botanic Park, Pedro Castle, and more. And, being a tax-free island and a major banking centre, Grand Cayman draws both shoppers and investors.

Our uniquely stylish inn is situated right in the heart of Bodden Town, with convenience and liquor stores, gas stations, handicraft boutiques and a post office, close by. "From the visitor's viewpoint, to stay in Bodden Town is to get a real taste of the Cayman Islands and its people, to experience and enjoy a unique Caribbean culture and lifestye at very close quarters. That experience is never on offer in a 'tourist strip' wherever that strip maybe." (Editorial in the Caymanian Compass) At the geographical centre of Grand Cayman, the Inn in Bodden Town is an ideal base from which to explore both ends of the island.

At the condos though, full housekeeping is done before you arrive, and after you depart, and there's a full second set of linen and towels on hand, as well as your own washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Select a couple of films on DVD or VHS from our free lending library for viewing in your apartment -- as often as you like -- borrow a book from the lobby bookcase, or ask us for your favourite boardgame. In the mood for a picnic outing on the island? We'll happily lend you a cooler with ice packs, a couple of small, folding beach chairs, and a beach parasol. There's a kayak you can take out, and snorkelling gear you can rent or puchase. And, you'll have a local daily newspaper at your door every morning.

It asks Caymanians and residents to consider the possibility that large hotels are not the only route forward..." (Editorial in the Caymanian Compass)
