As Good As It Gets!
This was our first VRBO transaction, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience from the property owners. Great communication, an abundance of information about the surrounding area, and an accurate description of the property all made for a wonderful vacation to Grand Cayman.
When shopping for a property, the biggest fear is not seeing it with your own eyes. Don't worry with this particular property as the pictures are exactly how we found the property. It is a peaceful and quiet location. A wonderful retreat for those looking to go to paradise without the crowds to spoil the fun.
The master bedroom is very nice and very roomy, and the two guest bedrooms are more than adequate. Six people fit comfortably in the villa. The kitchen is nicely equipped as we ate most of our meals at the villa and the beach is literally right off the patio with the water less than 10 yards from your door.
We are a family of snorkelers, and it was wonderful to have quality snorkeling right outside the door with no one else around! We say rays, barracudas, trunk fish, squid, lobster, and tons of reef fish. Plus, we did the "Rum Point Drift" several times (which is a blast by the way) and saw turtles, more rays, lots of squid, and just about any type of fish you could think of. The only disappointment we had is we never saw a nurse shark (yes, my 10 year old wanted to see a shark).
I know when shopping for a vacation spot, it's great to know all the good things about the property, but you also want to know the downside. The downside to this location is simply its location. Although there is a small convenience store down the road, grocery shopping does require you to go back into town (about 30 minutes away). If you need a drugstore, same thing (30 minute drive). There really isn't a whole lot on this side of the island. Even the restaurants are few and far between (although there are some good ones on this side of the island).
For us, that was a (very) small price to pay for such a beautiful and quiet spot in paradise (we would trade the inconvenience for the tranquility 100% of the time).
The bottom line is that if you're looking for a quiet oceanfront location (with excellent snorkeling), I can't think of a better place than this villa. AND you can't put a price on the quality of people from which you will be renting. The peace of mind of working with an honest and trustworthy property owners makes this place a bargain. Thanks Frank and Del!!
