Security, Safety and Emergency Numbers
EMERGENCY – POLICE, FIRE, & HOSPITAL – 911
Fire alarm and evacuation instructions are on the back of the main entrance door.

Although Grand Cayman is one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean, you are kindly requested to keep your windows and doors locked when you are not in your unit, and we also suggest you keep your car windows and doors locked at all times. Please do not hesitate to report any suspicious activity on the property to the office.
Each unit is equipped with a small safe for your convenience, and you are advised to use it for any items of value. The DPC is not responsible for damage to, or for any loss of personal items left in your unit.
In the interest of all our guests “Quiet Time” must be observed between 10:00pm and 8:00am. Excessive noise or any other activity that disturbs other guests is unacceptable and if necessary, may result in the police being called to enforce this policy.
Check In and Check Out Times
Check-in time is 3:00 pm and Checkout time is 12:00 noon, unless otherwise authorized by the manager.
If you are leaving on an early morning flight, please advise the office the day before. You may drop your keys in the “drop box” located outside the main office entrance. If your flight does not leave until late afternoon, you can make arrangements to leave your luggage in the office. Luggage is left at the owner’s risk. Subject to bookings, we may be able to extend the checkout time by 1 or 2 hours.
All room keys issued to you at check-in must be returned to the office. A “lost key” fee of US $50.00 will be charged for any keys not returned.
In-room safes are in the master bedroom of every unit and in some second bedrooms. If the key for the safe is lost, both the key and lock will need to be replaced and the guest will be charged accordingly.
Maximum 6 people
Each Unit at DPC is privately owned. Owners are very pleased to have you stay in their “Home away from Home.” Each unit is individually decorated and fitted with a unique inventory. Please do not remove items from the unit and/or place them in another unit or leave them by the pool or beach. Each unit has been thoroughly inspected before your arrival.
Upon check-in, if you discover any damaged or malfunctioning equipment, please contact the office immediately. Please do not attempt to fix or repair any equipment. Any damage or removal of items will be charged to the $500 damage deposit upon checkout.
Upon check out, the general condition of the unit will be inspected, and any broken or missing items will be noted. If a unit is found to require more than four hours of housekeeping to restore to check-in condition, you may be charged for additional cleaning costs.
The local currency is the Cayman Islands Dollar (CI$) but transactions using nondomestic credit cards will be charged in US$. The US dollar is widely accepted throughout the islands. The CI$ is fixed to the US dollar at $1.25 US Dollars to $1.00 Cayman Islands Dollar.
The Discovery Point Club provides each unit with beach towels. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE BEACH TOWELS FROM THE PROPERTY. Clean beach towels are provided on the shelf outside the laundry room, which is behind the main office. Kindly return used towels to the bin outside the laundry room.
Beach Cabanas and Umbrellas
Although DPC has more shade than comparable units on Seven Mile Beach, there is never enough. The beach cabanas and umbrellas are on a first come first served basis. However, we ask that you be courteous to all guests by not reserving these while you are not on the beach for extended periods of time. Personal items are not permitted to be left in the cabanas overnight. All towels and possessions will be removed from the beach nightly.
Beach chairs cannot be left at the water’s edge.
Pool and Jacuzzi
The pool is open from 9:00am to 10:00pm for use by rental guests, and the owners and their guests only. THERE IS NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY AT ANYTIME IN THE POOL AREA OR THE BEACH! All minors must be accompanied by a supervisory adult. Please use good judgment regarding young children in the jacuzzi. The Discovery Point Club is not liable for any injury or death resulting from negligence or improper behavior on the part of users. Guests may be asked to leave the pool or jacuzzi area for improper behavior.
Please rinse off sunscreen, ocean water, and/or sand before entering the pool or jacuzzi. Fresh water taps are provided at the pool entrances and a shower directly between the two main buildings. Please shower thoroughly to remove all sand and salt from your body, bathing suit and hair (to prevent a chemical reaction with the chlorine), or recreational equipment, air mattresses etc. prior to entering the pool or jacuzzi.
No glass of any type is allowed in the pool or deck area, the jacuzzi or beach area. If you carry food or drink to the pool, jacuzzi or beach, kindly ensure that all garbage is disposed of and anything belonging to the unit is returned.
Two tennis/pickleball courts are provided for the use of guests and owners of DPC. Courts are open all day for use as required. Equipment is available for guests to use free of charge in our office.
For your convenience, an additional wash off station for all recreational and diving equipment/accessories is located next to the laundry area behind the office. Please do not take salty or wet gear inside the unit. Kindly leave all equipment outside on your patio.
Gas barbeque grills are provided for the use of the guests and owners of the Discovery Point Club. Please leave barbeque grills clean after use, dispose of any garbage and turn off the gas when finished.

Electricity and Water – Utility Conservation
We ask that all guests be diligent with the conservation of electricity and water since these are expensive utilities in the Cayman Islands. The water is desalinated and is safe to drink. Your effort to help us conserve these resources is greatly appreciated.
Please operate the air conditioning with all windows and doors closed.
To prevent sand and dirt from being tracked into the rooms, and to prevent the blocking of drains by sand, a foot pan for washing sand or dirt off your feet is made available. If you do not have a foot pan, please advise the office. Always leave the foot pans on the walkway and do not place them on the grass or inside the unit.
The Discovery Point Club provides daily maid service, except on Sunday and public holidays to all our guests. On public holidays, towels are removed, and garbage taken out; however, there is NO service at all on Christmas Day & Good Friday. The housekeepers will make beds (sheets are changed every third day), sweep and mop floors, clean the bathrooms, replace used towels, and generally clean the unit. Please ensure that all wet and sandy beach towels and bathing suits are kept OFF all furniture and beds. The housekeepers are not responsible for personal laundry or dishes.
