HI does anyone know of anyone or have experience renting an oceanfront
house on Grand Cayman.  It is for a week next December and would be for
2 ***s, 2 children.  Thanks in advance.

Expensive!

You are not going to have a lot of choice at this late time since
December is very popular.  Also, two condos were trashed recently by
"Mitch" and that adds to the problem of accommodations in December.  

Check Plantana.  I was there recently (saw it, not stayed) and it seems
very nice and the manager (Sharon) is extremely helpful.

Take care and enjoy.

=> Expensive!

        Even more so, as I think the request is actually for
Christmas-NewYears Dec 99-00 (if its the same one as sent to me by the poster
earlier in the week).  Hard to tell from this post. Heavy surcharges for the
y2k party!

=> You are not going to have a lot of choice at this late time since
=> December is very popular.

        It's always amazing to me to see how many folks don't book early for
the holidays - the first two weeks in December are great and generally open -
the last two weeks are packed (and booked early)!

=>  Also, two condos were trashed recently by
=> "Mitch" and that adds to the problem of accommodations in December.  

        The sea-front condos at Bonnies Arch and Dolphin Point were totally
scoured out by high seas and waves from Mitch while it was 200 miles south of
Cayman.  They were hit because of their exposure to the south, as they are out
on the extreme NW point and were not protected by the rest of the south side
of the island.  The backwash from these same seas redistributed the sand along
Seven Mile Beach.

        Also hit was Clan Creek (small condos just north of Bonnies Arch),
where a good friend of mine owns.  She bought her place exactly ten years ago
after a hurricane wiped someone else out there and now its been trashed again
- and they had really barricaded it up this time around - but those seas will
not be denied.

        Just think what would have happened if the storm hadn't dissipated
into Central America but had gone up the Yucatan Channel instead as predicted
- and come much closer to the entire west side of GCM ... Very scary.  My
heart goes out to those poor folks in Honduras and Nicaragua.  Anyone that can
help should do so.
