What is the beach like by the North Pointe Condos? Also, what is the source of water? My wife is really concerned where the water comes from because I am on immunosuppersents since my transplant and she is afraid I might get some kind of bacteria.

Someone else will have to tell you exactly how the beach is there, and exactly what the water source at that complex is, but I stayed in Cayman Kai last Dec. and we used bottled water for everything.
The manager said that people who live there would probably drink the water--but that visitors should use bottled. Our friends just used tap water for ice cubes, but I was concerned because of upper respiratory problems in the past, so decided that we would just lug in the bottled water--even used it for tea and coffee. When we stayed on the other side of the island, which has city water, we used tap water. Someone else will have to tell you exactly what the water source is at North Pointe. Maybe they have reverse osmosis, but I don't know. I did use tap water for dish washing and washing off fruits and vegetables however and I was fine.
Years ago before there was city water on SMB we still used tap water, which was cistern water (rain water collection).
I'll be interested to hear what others way.

We stayed in two North Pointe condos a while ago (pre-ivan). We stayed in 'Harv's Kai' and 'Mid-Winter Night's Dream'.
The beach was fine, although it isn't groomed everyday like the SMB resorts' beaches are. To make up for this, there is the relative isolation and tranquility that you might find lacking on SMB.
As for water, I believe they have city water up there now. I remember seeing where the road had been dug up for piping of some sort. Still, if you have concerns, bottled water is the way to go for peace of mind.
When NorthSideSue returns from her jaunt to Ireland hopefully she can help out more. She has an extraordinary amount of knowledge about all things North Side.

Thanks divesergeant! I was hoping that NorthSideSue would be on to answer this. Doesn't she own one of the units in North Pointe? I appreciate the reply. We want to stay on the north side because of the tranquility.

Has anyone stayed at North Pointe condos, we want to snorkel and have a great beach. I know it is remote, but it is more affordable than seven mile beach, and I would only want to be on the Northern end of Seven mile beach, as it seems quieter. It is a late booking due to our change of plans. Any info would be great. Thanks
