A nice reef-side respite, off the beaten path

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Grand Cayman with our family of 6. The place was perfect for us. Plenty of room and to have the open patio with sand and ocean out the back door is so nice. Note when we were there - there was a lot of dried sea grass on the beach so not clear soft sand. The villas are very private and quiet. The house is located with the ocean on one side and the road on the back side by the small parking area. So at night with the windows open you can hear cars. There are not a lot of cars but on weekends there are more. The house is 10 minutes away from Rum Point, a popular spot on the north side of the island. The villa is off the beaten path and away from the big resorts of Seven-Mile Beach. There were only 2 or 3 of the villas rented the week we were there. Full kitchen which was great for us - with a large family we like to eat all our meals in and pack a picnic lunch, rather than eat at expensive restaurants. A cooler was provided. We went to the grocery store twice about 25 minutes away from house. Also the washer/dryer was a must. There are plenty of sand toys, snorkel gear, beach towels, etc. We did bring our own snorkel gear though. There are two bikes with helmets but unfortunately one of the bike pedals was broken. It looked like an extra pedal had been purchased as a replacement but it was not on the bike and it kept falling off. The outdoor shower was great for the kids! The snorkeling out back is wonderful on a clear and calm day. Unfortunately, there were only two calm days so most of the time the ocean was cloudy and rough. Hard to see the fish. So when it is rough and windy on the north side (which is where the house is) you have to drive to the south or west shores of the island to get calm water. Having said that, you MUST rent a car!! We rented two small cars and we were so thankful we did. To drive on the left was easy to get used to. There is really only one main road on Grand Cayman so it is easy to get around. Not too much traffic and seemed very safe. We didn't anticipate having to get in the car everyday (kids weren't too happy about it in the beginning) and drive to a beach/snorkeling spot but after we got used to it the kids were fine with it. Most good snorkeling spots are 25-40 minutes away from the house so just be prepared. We packed lunch every day. Frank was very accommodating in giving us all the villa and tourist information we needed. All in all a great place and maybe we will be back one day!

What We Were Hoping It Would Be

  • 5 of 5

No, really, we were hoping there would be oregano -- there was. We were hoping the knives would be sharp and that the dishwasher really washed dishes -- yup. We were hoping you really could snorkel out the back door and see fish you've only seen on TV and in aquariums -- absolutely.

What we couldn't have hoped: that the cable would be wonky, I'd send an email, and ten minutes later the owner would call me personally to walk me through fixing it. That on a day too windy to go in the water, there would be so many things to do on the island (turtles, hikes, eating and eating and eating) that we wouldn't even care.

Hopes exceeded. Such a great place to stay. Such a great owner. Clearly this is not a money-making investment. This is their second home that they let a few other lucky people use. I hope they rent this property as much as they can but always save some time for us.

Perfect House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

As a long time VRBO patron, I found this house on the beach to be exactly what I wanted and expected. The house was in perfect order, included everything we needed for the week and then some. If you are looking for a quite location, with the ocean in your backyard, this is it. Sleeping with the surf and waking to a beautiful sunrise every morning. Bring your snorkel gear - the fish are abundant 10 steps from the house.

Paradise on Cayman

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Azure Breeze for the first time and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The home is gorgeous, prettier than the pictures portray. Our private beach area was perfect and we loved the way the chairs were arranged. It felt like 3 separate beach areas, the lounge chairs were near the water and we enjoyed star gazing at night. The Adirondack chairs were bright and colorful to sit, relax, and read a book, and, of course, we had breakfast every morning on the patio. We did a lot of traveling around the island but couldn't wait to get back to Azure Breeze. We all snorkeled the reef outside your home and the kids (in their 20's) saw a nurse shark hanging out under a ledge. That made their trip. I saw lots of lobsters! There was no need for a/c, we all enjoyed the beautiful breeze coming from the patio doors. At home, we have to have all the windows closed for about 4 months so it was quite a treat to have the fresh air from the ocean. We were on Cayman Island last year and had a great time but staying at your home this year really was very special.

We enjoyed eating at Over the Edge, Chester's, Vivian's near blow holes, Fish Fry Friday (up the street), and the cracked conch. We went to the botanical gardens, sting-ray city, rum point, Eden Rock, and of course, Hell.

Thank you so much for opening up your home for others to enjoy. We just loved it and hope someday to return.

Wonderful spot for family adventures - can't say enough good things!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (kids ages 10, 13, 15) stayed here last June (how did I not write this sooner?!) and had an absolutely amazing time! As everyone else has said, this place has it all! Frank was GREAT with communication, even getting back to me right away when we couldn't find the WIFI password. We loved NOT being right in the thick of things on Seven Mile Beach, but instead being a quick drive to everything. We had breakfast at home each day and then headed off on our adventures. In some ways our experience differed from many other reviewers because in the time that we were there, the snorkeling just outside wasn't so great (too windy, too shallow during the times we could go) but it still didn't matter. The bioluminescence kayak tour is not to be missed, the dolphin encounter was so fun, trip to Stingray Island my daughter still proclaims the best experience of her life, and 7 Mile Beach is everything you want it to be. Surprise fun: the crabs out on the east end at least migrate sea to shore and back to lay eggs at the start of summer, so they travel across the roads in crazy Raiders of the Lost Ark kind of numbers - there are tons of splats on the road (which is not fun) but the swerving and getting out of the car to shoo them, check them out, etc. was hilarious! We had dinner at Tukka TWICE both for that experience and for the amazing food, service and ambiance. One surprise disappointment: the turtle farm. Just be aware that it is a FARM and they raise the turtles for meat. In recent years they have been releasing only a ceremonial handful. As cool as it was to touch a turtle, our animal-loving kids were super depressed by the depressing environment for the turtles and the thoughts of their future, and we really couldn't get out of there fast enough. If you want to snorkel and enjoy the ocean, there is no better spot on earth! We really hope to go back and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Frank!!!

Awesome beachfront villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at this villa. We were hoping for some time to unwind and find true tropical island paradise. We found it! Each morning I started with the short walk to Chisholm’s grocery to get the daily paper. Then I came back, brewed some coffee and headed out on to the lanai to start my day. What a wonderful way to start each morning. We took Frank’s advice and headed to the turtle farm and then the buffet at Macabuca. What a day! And then to come back to the villa for after dinner drinks out on the lanai. Snorkeling out back was wonderful. Once it was windy so we headed to Eden Rock and George Town and then the wreck of the Cali. AWESOME! We mostly cooked in and the villa could not have been set up better. Rarely is a rental stocked very well, but just as we realized when we walked in, this is Frank & Del’s home. They have taken numerous steps to make sure you feel at home here too. And we did. We finished off our week with the Bioluminescence tour with Tom and Lisha of Cayman Kayaks. Another wonderful evening. We ran out of time to do all the things that we thought we might want to so we will have to come back. And back here it will definitely be. Thank you Del and Frank for a wonderful and hospitable time.
