Perfect House, perfect location

My family of 5 stayed at Caymanese for a week and we absolutely loved it. I can't think of anything we'd change other than possibly trying a place in a different part of the island. Highly recommend if you're staying on the North Side. We prefer rental houses for longer vacations and this is definitely one of the best. Mitzie, the property manager who lives across the street, was extremely helpful and accommodating.
House: The house is in great condition. I was a bit worried about it before we got there based on the pictures, but the pictures don't do it justice. Trees and plants are bigger and nicer now. My wife, who is picky about cleanliness, was totally satisfied. Unlike many US rentals, no inventorying or checkout "to-do" list. Everything in the house is high quality. Very comfortable mattresses, comfortable couches, nice bathroom fixtures, all furnishings are good quality. The house also has a nice layout. 2nd floor bedrooms are identical and each have their own bathroom. 2nd floor balcony to watch the ocean or sunset. 2nd floor rooms have nice window seats.
There is only 1 TV in the house which some people may not like, but its a good size LCD TV with satellite channels (several HD) and a DVD player.
Tap water is 100% fine and there's even a separate ice machine in the laundry room. Washer and dryer are also good quality.
Kitchen: Great! Appliances are better than our house. Dishes, pots, pans, etc. are all very good stuff. And its stocked well with everything we needed. They even have several spices and other non-perishable items left from previous visitors (I guess).
Pool: Small, but nice. Perfect for us to jump in and play. Crabs seem to like to crawl in at night. Several places to rise off sand near the pool.
Beach: The beach is great (totally private, nice sand), but you definitely want water shoes. There is a lot of coral and its very sharp. This is not really a beach you'd run and jump in the water, but you can do that at Rum Point if you want. The snorkeling is very shallow, but really nice. We saw tons of cool fish. Snorkeled almost every day.
Kayaks: We enjoyed them a lot, but use with caution, waves can get rough and the coral...
Location: If you want somewhere quiet and beautiful with private beach, and don't plan to try new restaurants every night, this is a great location. If you want to be closer to shopping and food, this isn't the location for you. Nice beach at Rum Point.
