The Cayamns has a reputation for the best snorkeling in the world. However, it is not uncommon that dozens of people will surround one hotspot. At the Northetn Lights we had our very own stretch of coral reef right outside our doors and all to ourselves!!
My husband was so greatful for the fishing and incredible snorkeling. Personally, my favorite two things about Northern Lights was the hammock right outside our bedroom and searching for seashells.
Quit, Clean and Serene.
A beach house dream.
We just returned from our stay in Northern Lights #6 on Grand Cayman and had a fabulous time. If you want a busy and noisy place within walking distance to all the touristy stuff this is not for you. But we like the opposite, and this small condo complex on the quiet north shore of GC was perfect for us. Justin and Bo, the owners, were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating, from the welcome "basket" of first day essentials to a local cell phone when the complex experienced temporary problems with their land line. The unit is spacious and loaded with everything you need: the kitchen was fully equipped (and we used the patio grill several nights), the WIFI and TV worked well, the beds in both bedrooms comfortable, many towels provided. (There are several great restaurants in the area which we also enjoyed.) As others stated, the snorkeling out front is the best that we found, and we explored quite a few other beaches. What we liked best is that at most only two other units in the complex were rented out so most of the time we had the beach and the pool to ourselves. (Most units are privately owned and not everyone rents them out.) As a result, we never found the time to visit the busy west coast of the island! We would come back to this place if we revisit Grand Cayman.
We could not have asked for a better place to stay to satisfy our quest for sun, fun, and relaxation. The North side of the Cayman Islands has a gorgeous reef with outstanding snorkeling, areas with beautiful beaches, and restaurants with special appeal.
Our unit at Northern Lights was perfect for the four of us. Along with the pool which we pretty much had to ourselves, was great snorkeling just steps away and a pier to enjoy lovely sunsets nightly. We look forward to our next visit to Northern Lights

First time to stay here. Website pictures and description seemed to match what I was looking for so decided to try it. Glad I did it was perfect, beautiful views and no crowds. Owner was very accommodating and I had no complaints. We relaxed pool side and under palm trees reading and lessening to the waves on the beach.
