We live in Michigan most of the time, but love our getaways to Grand Cayman, where we once again remember who we are - without all the daily accoutrements and stresses of our ordinary busy lives. The magic happens the minute you step off the plane and hear the steel drum band playing, smell the fragrant air and feel the breeze blowing as you arrive at Owen Roberts Airport.

Paula or Bruce purchased this condo in 2001

We purchased Lucky Dog Sea Lodge after vacationing at the Sea Lodges of Cayman Kai in the late 1990's. It only took one time to fall in love! This place has a special vibe that is totally unique.

Ocean views from every room in this quirky 1960's built white peaked roof, Fred-Flintstone-reminiscent abode make it the perfect island haven! Here you have a sense of living indoors/outdoors in tandem with nature on the sand and sea and this feeling became a standard we could not find anyplace else. Lucky Dog Sea Lodge gives a one of a kind experience.

If you like the quiet life, this is the place for you. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the grocery store then right to the condo. It was everything that was advertized and more. It was clean and well maintained. I like the fact that there is no air conditioning, but you don't need it because of the tropical breezes that seem to always be blowing. Paula is wonderful to work with. We have stayed there twice and plan on going back again. I would highly recommend this property.
What more could you ask for than snorkeling 50 feet from where you are staying. The beach is never crowded. We have always had a relaxing wonderful time while there.
If you go, you need to go to the Sunday barbeque at the Driftwood Bar. It is very good, but make sure you get there early because the ribs go fast. Rum point is just down the road and is beautiful. It is close enough to walk to. You can snorkle or just relax and have a drink or lunch. It is also a wonderful place to watch the sunset. If you don't like crowds, stay away from Georgetown especially when the cruise ships are there.

Delightful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I just came home from an amazing 4-week stay at the Lucky Dog Sea Lodge and I am already making plans to return. This beach cottage was everything promised on the website and more; great snorkeling out front (check out http://snorkelblog.tumblr.com for details), a quiet setting with friendly neighbors, and morning views of the sunrise from the bedroom windows. It was clean and the furnishings were cozy and confortable – everything I wanted in a beach cottage.

I never turned on the bedroom AC – the ceiling fans and trade winds blowing through the wooden louvered doors and windows kept me cool (even though the beginning of my stay was a little hot and steamy). The sea lodge was well equipped with a comfortable bed and futon, quality sheets and plenty of towels and beach towels.

I spent a lot of time on the screened lanai (facing east) watching the sea break over the reef. The beach out front was cleaned once a week; there were some rocky areas and water shoes were needed for getting into the sea to “play.” There were lounge chairs and covered areas (plus a large umbrella at the sea lodge) for use on the beach.

The wifi connection was a little slow at times, but since I was on “island time” I didn’t care. They provided an island cell phone that I took with me when I left the Sea Lodge.

Rum Point is about ½ mile west and I went there to snorkel, play in the water and have a few Rum Punches. Over The Edge (in Old Man Bay) is a great place for dinner – a copy of their menu is available at the Sea Lodge (as are other area restaurant menus).

Paula was wonderful to work with – she answered my emails promptly and provided answers to all my questions. Barbara, the island manager, was just a cell-phone call away if I had a problem. She also purchased (for a small fee) some food for me prior to my arrival and cleaned the Sea Lodge twice (for another fee) during my stay. Because she also manages several other Sea Lodges she was on-site almost every day if I had a question.

This was the best stay on Grand Cayman that I have had in 20 years. Thank you, Paula and Bruce!

Lucky Dog Sea Lodge @ Grand Caymans/Cayman Kai

  • 5 of 5
The CONDO we stayed at was beautiful & well kept. Very clean grounds and the native people were fun to talk to! The tradewinds were always blowing so sleeping at night, listening to the ocean, was awesome! We did have some rain, but then would clear up for sunny skies. Rum Point was gorgeous. Beautiful beaches & clear water as far as you could see. We were right on the ocean, just a few steps out our door. The snorkling was a blast, lots of colorful sea life! Would definitely recommend STING RAY CITY. The sting rays were so graceful & beautiful. If you want to see George town or 7 mile beach, using the boats as a water ferry is well worth it! We will defintiely be coming back, we found our "second home" Mike & Kim Hada

Already want to come back

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 spend unforgettable week at Bruce and Paula’s condo.
This was our first time experience of renting condo for vacation and I’m glad that we did it. All you wish for a holiday to be - owner was exceptionally helpful from time of our first contact, she even contact to Cayman Department of Environment because we found 2 turtle nests build over night and they needed to be visited by experts. Paula provided us all detailed information, she also send us a little brochure with all instruction about condo and Cayman island as well, so we knew what to expect and what to visit.
I’m really glad that we choose this place. The condo located right on the white sand beach in quite area of the island. You can enjoy sunrise and listen sound of waves seating in the private net covered porch.
The condo unit itself suits for vacation perfectly. It has everything that you need from spoons to beach towels, even small cooler which for us came very handy because we traveled to George town couple of times. When we arrived, unit was spotless and very inviting, Barbara even arranged some local flowers. We did not need to contact her or maintenance guy, but we met Barbara when she prepared another condo for guests. We did not use air conditioner – there is no need of it. Fresh air comes through the windows from the sea, which is very refreshing.
Besides our condo beach we liked to snorkel at Rum Point, that was a minute away from us and where we met Stinky, the lonely dolphin and swam with tropical fishes and occasional stingray. You can book some water excursions or rent water scooters from Rum Point. We preferred to go all way down to George town to take the Submarine tour and Sting Ray City tour from Marine Land tour (must visit, their boat is more comfortable than other, with stairs to go to the water. They do not combine this tour with snorkeling at another places)

We definitely will recommend this place to stay and already want to go back.

Our dream come true- thank you!

  • 5 of 5
On this our third trip to Grand Cayman (2010, 2011) we looked for a place that would meld the many qualities we've come to love in the Caymanian way of life. To our delight we found Lucky Dog #13 and after staying there a week can say it IS that ideal place where water, sea life, and trade winds (ah yes!) abide in harmony.
Having no prior experience with a rental vacation home, nor experience with the quiet side of Grand Cayman, Paula (homeowner) quickly put our minds at rest with a great deal of information that answered many questions; during the entire booking process beginning to end she was attentive and supplied very timely communication via e-mail or by phone. From this information we booked McCurley's (local) car service (round trip transfers, driver's license, brief grocery/liquor store stop, rental car waiting at Lucky Dog) which was a less stressful intro for our first time driving on the left. We'd use their service again.
We found the Lucky Dog as advertised, clean, well maintained, kitchen equipped and more, DVD functional, air conditioned bedroom (didn't use since trade winds provided comfortable sleeping), cell phone provided for local calls and contacting property manager (didn't need to phone her), and positioned (here's the great part) for maximum reef watching. We were utterly fascinated by the action of the waves on the reef at various times of the day and learned when the best time was to snorkel OUT TO THE CORAL REEF (between 1000 and 12noon), which we took advantage of DAILY. When closer to shore we were treated to a spotted eagle ray picking up lunch at a sandy spot, a Southern Sting Ray with its very own Cobia cleaning topside, and even met "George the Barracuda". George was not pleased having just been surrounded by 7 snorklers so we gave him ("the sheriff of the sea") a wide berth. The fish "nursery" exposed rocks (near left tiki) has all manner of reef fish
When not snorkeling at Lucky Dog, we tried Star Fish point (past Kai Bo, yes there ARE starfish and mostly sea grass), Rum Point (nice snorkeling to the right of the dock), and other sites along the Queen's Highway (surprises you can't plan for).
When it rained we visited Queen Elizabeth Botanic garden (blue iguanas), Vivine's Kitchen (near Gun Bay, yes it really is her kitchen), Ten Sail, Lighthouses, and the Blow Holes (rainy weather made for BIG surf and activity there). For dinners out we enjoyed "Over the Edge"- well prepared local fish. We hope to return.

You will be vacationing at the Sea Lodges of Cayman Kai - a small and intimate condo grouping that is directly on the ocean in the peaceful, private north side of Grand Cayman Island. The quiet side! Sting Ray City can be visited by boarding the boat out from Rum Point, less than a quarter mile walk down the beach. You can also drive to the Queen's Botanical Park within about fifteen minutes for a leisurely stroll through Caymanian nature. The Turtle Farm is a must-see if you have children with you. It's in the West End, about an hour's drive across and up the west peninsula of the island. Pick up the Tortuga Rum Cakes whenever and wherever you see them. They come in a variety of delicious flavors! Check with Ocean Frontiers for their snorkel or dive trips or walk down to Rum Point to Red Sail Sports if you need to rent some snorkel equipment for the trip.

This is not a resort; wrong side of the island... we are laid back and casual here.

Kaibo Yacht Club and Rum Point's Wreck Beach Bar with music a short 1/4 mile walk/drive away. Visit the Sunday BarBQue at the funky Driftwood Bar, meet the locals, enjoy other fine dining nearby, local convenience store, gift shops, tennis courts nearby and much, much more.
