Overview

East End Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Snuggle Beach - A Romantic Getaway for 2 !

This spacious, private 1 bedroom apartment takes up the entire ground floor level of a large 3-storey house in the East End of Grand Cayman. It walks out directly to a stunningly beautiful white powdery sandy beach, lush with vegetation and palm trees, right on your doorstep. Lounge chairs are on the beach and there is great snorkelling right off the beach!

This apartment has been newly renovated & freshly painted in keeping with a colourful, caribbean theme. There is a new, king-size bed with headboard, beautiful yellow comforter with matching sheets and colourful Caribbean artwork on the walls.

The large living room has a pull-out sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-sized fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and all cutlery, utensils, dishes. Lovely dining table that sits 4 people.

The views from all windows are spectacular. There is an 8 foot wide by 30 foot long patio with lounge chairs, and the piece de resistance is the built-in circular hot tub overlooking the Caribbean Sea at the end of the patio.

Less than 5 minutes away is a public beach, a grocery store, a liquor store, a large souvenir shop, two dive operators (including Ocean Frontiers, our recommendation for experienced divers), a lively beach bar with great food, and "The Barefoot Man" playing 2 nights a week at the Reef Resort (a must see! He has over a dozen CD's out -- a really fun evening -- packaged as a Dinner/show ). Also 2 minutes away is the famous Portofino's Italian Seafood Restaurant -- don't miss their Sunday Brunch!!!

If you are a couple, or small family, and want a peaceful, serene, tropical laid-back atmosphere and privacy, this is the place for you. Anything you need to supplement your stay is just a short drive away. However, there are only few places in the Cayman Islands where you can walk for miles without seeing other tourists -- just your own footprints in the sand!

June 13-20 2008 Trip

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start in describing our trip to CI.

The accommodations were perfect and as advertised. If you are wanting to get away from it all, this is the place.

The service and amenities were first class.

This is one of the few areas on the island that has a beautiful sandy "virtually private" beach.

Snorkeling around the island was incredible. Just off the shoreline we seemed to step right into an aquarium...Tropical fish and bright coral everywhere. A sight we will never forget. Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point, Northside and right here at Snuggle beach are areas we would suggest for snorkeling.

We reserved with Captain Marvin's for the snorkel tour to Stingray City. One of the cheaper priced tours but was sufficient and well managed. Stingray City is a must see!!

I would suggest eating at Calypso Grill and if you like pizza, the Brick Oven Pizza at Grand Harbor.

We reserved our rental at Andy's. You will need a rental since the house is about an hour from the airport. Driving is somewhat an adventure if you are used to driving on the right!!

Overall, a great trip and well worth the drive to the east side.

Regards... L & R

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! I have had many people suggest Calypso Grill (even though it's quite far away). Will try the Brick Oven next time I'm down! Sandra

Snuggle Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to the East End started out a little rough as there were a few problems with the property when we arrived. The jets in the whirlpool tub didn't work and it obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while, the air conditioner in the kitchen/living room didn't work, the satellite wasn't working, the DVD player didn't work, and one of the bathroom faucet handles was broken which made it pretty tough to turn on and off. However, once we let Nadine (who lives right upstairs) know about all of these problems she went out of her way to take care of as many problems as she could right away. She replaced the satellite box and the DVD player that day and had someone out to replace the water pump for the whirlpool tub within a couple of days. Some of the other things didn't get fixed while we were there but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the place at all.

The living space is pretty much exactly what it looks like in the pictures, nothing fancy but very nice. The real reason we booked this place was because of the deck, whirlpool tub, and beach and we couldn't have been happier with those things. We spent a lot of time out on that deck just marveling at what an amazing view we were looking at. The snorkeling right off the beach was really great especially right around the dock where all the fish congregate. If you like Italian food, there's a great new place right up the street called the Italian Kitchen...the garlic knots are fantastic.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Snuggle Beach. We've stayed in nicer places, but they were also a lot more expensive. You really get fantastic value for your money at this place and if you do have any problems or questions, Gary and Nadine are right upstairs and are always more than happy to do whatever they can to make your stay more enjoyable. So if you're just looking for a semi-private beach to relax on, catch some sun, and do a little snorkeling, I would definitely recommend Snuggle Beach.

Snuggle beach east end Grand Cayman

  • 2 of 5

Disappointment #1: Upon arrival we were told that someone would be coming to work on the satelite tv shortly. I believe because the owners were switching service. Really the day we arrived? It seems like that could have been taken care of before we got there! The service people did arrive and the tv and/or internet both were out of service for the most of the remainder of our stay. They were at the apartment two more times before the problem was solved. The owners did apoligize and we did not complain because really what was the point. We were on vacation and did not want to get into a big stressful discussion.

We were also disappointed in the beach which was littered with trash and not good for swimming because of rocks and seaweed.

Lastly the apartment may have been freshly painted when they wrote the original description but it isn't now! I was so taken with the photos and the apartment does not measure up at all. Needless to say we would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone else! This propery is not what we have come to expect from vrbo.

Owner's Response: We realize you would have rather had the TV & internet being repaired when the last guests were there, or during the next guest's stay, but this was not possible. The cable went down just before your stay (thanks to a tropical storm the week before you arrived) -- and had to be fixed. We certainly were frustrated that they didn't complete it on their first visit, nor 2nd -- we too were without internet & TV, but it's the Caribbean -- and these companies are on "island time". They don't rush back first thing in the morning. There was a lot of seaweed on the beach (and plastic bottles that people on boats throw overboard) because of this same storm, and the rough seas bring debris in. Had you said anything to us, we would have immediately swept the beach but we frankly hadn't noticed it as we don't use the beach ourselves. The apartment is painted at the end of every high season. People carrying in suitcases scruff up the walls. Painting will be done at the beginning of May again this year. As we have almost 100% occupancy during high season, we have to wait until all the guests are gone. Again, had you said something to us, we perhaps could have done some touch-up painting when you were out for the day (but there would have been paint fumes . . . )

Snuggle Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay if you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation! Thanks to Nadine for providing an awesome vacation!

Suggestions:

-Rent a car!

-Had fun going to stingray bay on waverunners

-We thought Rum point (15 minute drive) was just as good as 7 mile beach...if not better. We typically saw stingrays everyday if you walk down by the houses past the designated beach

-Morrits is a 15 minute walk and has a decent bar on a pier and we used their pool/hot tub and never had a problem

-Check out over the edge (along the way to rum point), good food, good view at reasonable prices for Grand Cayman.

So Relaxing ! Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "Snuggle Beach" and went snorkelling right off the beach every day. Apartment was cute, very "Caribbean", but it sure would have been nice to have a dish washer. Plenty of room for one. Although the owners were upstairs, we never saw them after we checked in. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Most days, we had the beach to ourselves. Was great to have BBQ's every day on the patio. Price extremely reasonable for Cayman. This is a hidden "gem" and we will be back for sure. One week was not enough -- next time we'll stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a great review. Hard to believe that you can find deserted beaches on Cayman -- but you can -- you just have to know where they are. We look forward to seeing you again!

2nd Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We wanted something quaint, quiet and romantic. The apartment was very spacious and cute, although a dishwasher would have been nice. Went for long walks on the sandy beach every morning -- most of the time, we were the only people in sight. Felt like we had the island to ourselves. Thoroughly enjoyed "The Barefoot Man" for our 10th Anniversary celebration. We could have stayed at "Snuggle Beach" forever. Next time, we'll come for a month. A week definitely is not enough.

Located in the East End of Grand Cayman, in the community of Colliers, we are away from all the tourist crowds for a truly relaxing and peaceful holiday. Yet we are less than 5 minutes from fine dining, casual dining, the grocery store, internet cafe, beach bar, watersports and many other things. Be as active or as secluded as you want!
