There are many apartment complexes on Seven Mile Beach itself, but most are rented out for short-term, daily rentals. However, some offer long-term rentals like George Town Villas, The Grandview, Sunset Cove, Laguna del Mar, Seagull Condominiums, The Sovereign and The Pinnacle. Monthly rental prices in this area range from a low of US$3,500 to a high of US$35,000+. Areas like Snug Harbour, Parkway, Governors Harbour, Canal Point, Crystal Harbour and the Cayman Islands Yacht Club are all nice places to live and popular with families, though the prices of properties can vary significantly. There are many four bedroom houses in these areas but you can also find upscale two and three bedroom apartments in a few of them. Properties are usually well maintained and professionals tend to rent or buy them. These neighbourhoods around Seven Mile Beach are generally quiet areas, near to restaurants and the beach. There is also a very good school in Camana Bay called Cayman International School, which follows the International Baccalaureate education system and can accommodate over 1,000 students from ages 2 to 18.
Britannia apartments are popular and vary in price, but based on the large number of units you can usually find a motivated seller. Apartments have either canal, pool or park views and the property is within walking distance of Camana Bay and all its great facilities.
OLEA is a new waterfront neighbourhood to the south of Camana Bay's town centre with 124 residences, lovely landscaping, a lazy river and a resort-style pool, and has shared amenities including a children's playground, community herb and produce garden and a gym, and you can walk to Camana Bay for the supermarket, cinema or restaurants.
Snug Harbour lies to the east of West Bay Road and is reached from the Esterley Tibbetts Highway. This is a sought-after residential area and is very popular with families. As well as being family and dog friendly, Snug Harbour has the advantage of being close to Seven Mile Beach and Camana Bay with easy access to George Town and West Bay. The area has two roads, Jennifer Drive and Andrew Drive, which run parallel West-East and finish at the North Sound. There are a number of intersecting roads in-between. Much of the residential housing consists of detached family homes with gardens, ranging from modest 2-bedroom homes to more upscale, 5/6 bedroom residences. However, there are several apartment buildings and townhouses here too, particularly towards the North Sound. Residents of Snug Harbour enjoy access to the Snug Harbour Park, consisting of a tennis court, a pickleball court, a basketball court, a children’s playground and a large grassy park. This is a popular meeting spot for families. Residents can book the tennis and basketball courts online.
Palm Heights Drive lies to the south of Snug Harbour and is accessed through the main Snug Harbour entrance. This is another popular residential location. One side of this road lies on the picturesque Britannia Canal, where you can find a number of attractive residential canal front houses and apartments. The other side of Palm Heights consists mostly of detached family homes, some with beautiful gardens. Palm Heights Drive is often mistakenly considered to be part of Snug Harbour, but this is not the case. Whilst residents here use the Snug Harbour park and playground, they are not able to book the tennis and basketball courts.
