Buy a luxury condo at East End’s Compass Point Dive Resort; have that dream dive vacation home you’ve always wanted, it’s easier than you think

IMAGINE THIS: You are going on a much-needed dive vacation in the Cayman Islands, so you call ahead to the staff at Compass Point Dive Resort at East End. They prepare your privately-owned condo for arrival and reserve your spot on the new Ocean Frontiers dive boats. When you arrive at the resort, familiar faces welcome you home with a smile and a helping hand. With minimal baggage (you have owner storage on property) you settle into a cool and comfortable condo while your dive gear is being set up for your first dive – you’ll be rolling out of bed and onto the dive boat every day. Then it’s off to Eagle Ray’s on the oceanside pool deck for a sundowner with friends and neighbors to say hello and toast to a great week of diving ahead. Life is good when you own a piece of paradise!

“Since our first introduction in 2008 to today, Compass Point has always felt like home,” said guest-turned-owner Kris B. “We bought our condo after the very first visit. We had not even toured the entire Island! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful in every way possible – the main reason for buying at Compass Point. As far as the ‘roll out of bed’ concierge diving service goes – it is impeccable and truly IS roll out of bed and onto to the boat, with our gear set up and ready to go. Smiles meet us all along the dock as we head to our boat.”

Owning a vacation home at Compass Point Dive Resort is easier than you think, and the investment is very affordable if you consider fractional ownership. Fractionals give you the opportunity to purchase a deeded share of a condo, but at a fraction of the cost of whole ownership. You get a number of weeks per year at the property and use of all resort amenities. PLUS perks, like owner dive discounts and owner storage so you can travel light. Because you’re only paying for the time that you use your island home, this is a cost-effective way to vacation in one of the hottest dive destinations in the world. And you become a member of an extended Cayman family.

“Ownership at Compass Point provides a serene getaway from the hectic pace of day-to-day life,” said owner Suzy R. “Arrival day is always exciting – opening the owners’ crates and unpacking to make it a true home-away-from-home. Seeing our second family of resort staff, and settling into a much different pace.”

Owners Jean and Howard K., say personal attention from resort and Ocean Frontiers dive staff make owning a condo at Compass Point a great experience. “It is definitely our home away from home. Every time we visit the island we are so pleased with the service – they take care of whatever we need, whether it be the initial gear set up, helping with cranky equipment, making sure the dives are enjoyable. The office and support staff are terrific, nothing is an imposition – things are done very quickly when requests are made.”

This personal service and special connection is where fractional properties and private ownership in a resort far outshine a vacation stay at a regular hotel or condo. It’s always a let-down when your vacation ends and you leave paradise, but was a homeowner in Cayman, you always look forward to coming back to your dream island home, with some of the world’s best diving at the foot of your bed.

“Our condo is always kept very clean and maintained beautifully by the housekeeping and maintenance staff. If there ever is an issue, it is handled with great care. Even though we rent it out for several months of the year, whenever we arrive it is as we left it,” said owner Kris B.

“I most enjoy predictability and consistency, and planning a vacation is effortless because I know precisely what my “home” will be,” adds condo owner Gerry G. “It is easy to slip into vacation routine in the comfort and safety of such an upscale place, and the service from the staff was excellent for my years as a visitor….and has only gotten better since becoming an owner.”

Foreign non-resident property ownership is permitted in the Cayman Islands. Purchase your own luxury condominium at the Compass Point Dive Resort at full ownership, or as a fractional. Ocean Frontiers co-owner Steve Broadbelt puts it into perspective. “Owning a vacation home in the Cayman Islands is not just for the uber-wealthy. Fractional ownership at Compass Point is accessible as buying a new car.”

Eagle Rays Bar & Grill, the seaside restaurant at the Compass Point Dive Resort, is the unofficial meeting place for returning owners, guests and staff alike. It becomes the place to exhale and free stress, the place to regain that sense of belonging to the Compass Point & Ocean Frontiers family. Everyone agrees.

“We love Eagle Rays! The food is great and the prices are very reasonable – the Mahi Mahi we had fresh out of the ocean was the best fish we have ever had – this was during our most recent stay two weeks ago.”

“Eagle Rays offers great food and service with a spectacular view! The Lionfish Tacos, Divers Night buffet, and Milkshakes are awesome!”

“Eagle rays is a closer for those tired days. Great cocktails. Great view and breeze.”

“Let’s face it…sometimes after a great day of diving, the ability to relax and enjoy lunch or dinner…or just meet friends for cocktails without leaving the resort is truly a convenience. Eagle Ray’s restaurant serves up delicious “Caribbean style” fare at a reasonable price. We especially like the Conch Fritters, Coconut Shrimp, Whole Fried Lionfish and Lionfish Tacos…as well as other featured daily chef specials. YUM!”

Owner Dennis D. says it all. “One of the things we enjoy most about owning a unit at Compass Point is the feeling of being part of a “Family” as opposed to just being a “Guest Renter” at a dive resort. We always look forward to seeing and diving with the other owners that we have come to know during our tenure at Compass Point…a bit like a “Family Reunion!” In addition, we see and appreciate the value of “Owning” versus “Renting” a condo during our dive vacations.”
