FAMILY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 1 of 5
The castle was great UNTIL it rained. Our family rented the castle & guesthouse. We were in the guesthouse & on our last day water poured in thru the windows & water leaked from the ceiling fan in the center of the room. We spent our last day in Cayman cleaning up large amounts of water dripping from the ceiling fan, kitchen & windows. I would NOT recommend anyone staying there unless this is rectified. We were not told that the place leaked before booking the house. If we knew about the leaks, we may have chosen to stay somewhere else

Owner's Response: This large family stayed for two weeks...and enjoyed great weather until day #9 when the heavens opened (tropical storm Beryl formed over top of Grand Cayman). Cayman had record rainfall of 13" in 2 days(!!) and it rained sideways..the schools closed and government buildings shut down. The Castle & Guesthouse are in east end and the rain & wind came from the east..so it was sideways against the sliding doors and windows and leaked under the sliders-- the guests used towels to soak up rainwater--and we sent out maids to do the towels for them. We also had a roof drain blocked which caused a ceiling leak--so our roofer and contractor went over and unplugged that clog..so the kitchen roof stopped leaking. We also caulked the doors...It was just a rotten final 5 nights in Cayman for this family...so I offered to send them to the Lighthouse Restaurant for dinner ($1,000 limit) even though the second week I discounted for them almost 30%. They didn't accept the offer...and only after they left the island, posted this abysmal review of the house (1 star?) AND demanded a refund. I did what I could do for them while on island and offered a nice dinner as a kind gesture of condolence for the weather. There is just no way to please everyone. I am sure they will want to submit more negative reviews. Please read the 5 years of good reviews and understand that some people can never be happy when the weather turns bad like it did. 13" of rain is almost half the annual rainfall for the east end historically!!

CORRECTIVE ACTION: I flew down as soon as they left..hired a roofer and contractor and completely removed the second floor roof and re-sloped the decking, installed a new membrane and drains...we also siliconed around the sliding glass doors--but in a 30mph 1"/hr sideways rainstorm...sliding door tracks will spill over...I am glad that we only have 1-2 of these storms a year.

CAYMAN CASTLE

  • 5 of 5
The stay at the "Castle" was outstanding. (We rented the castle and guesthouse) It was March of 2009 and it was our chance to bring family and friends together in one great location. Our kids; grandchildren and friends enjoyed the spacious accommodations that allowed all of us the opportunity for both privacy and socialization. The rooms were comfortable and the location great for water sports (swimming (ocean and heated pool), kayaking, snorkeling and kite surfing!) We have been renting in the Caribbean since 2002 and without question Jim offers the most personalized of services. PS: My grandson, now nine, has a goal to one day buy the castle, top that for a recommendation! Bill from Massachusetts

COULDN'T BE CALMER / COOLER THAN AT THE CASTLE!!!

COULDN'T BE CALMER / COOLER THAN AT THE CASTLE!!!
  • 5 of 5
I spent my honeymoon at the Castle and Guest House in 2008 (Hurricane Paloma) ...we had all ages and mobilities of folks staying - the week was ideal - so easy for an 89 year old to enjoy ... and safe for the little ones .... Hurricane (Cat 3+) did not even touch us - round castle and watertight ... amazing ... The ad understates the experience you will have - The exclusive location of this heaven keeps us coming back (5 trips so far) ... the staff at the dive place next door are incredibly helpful - nice to be able to walk there! and to Vivine's Kitchen!! And some of the best snorkeling is a swim from the personal dock - Also, close to Rum Point, and Kaibo - wonderful wonderful vacation spot - all the amenities with the requisite 'turn off button' from crazy East Coast lives .... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

BEYOND WORDS!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Castle in June 2011 and would definitely recommend it! There were 7 of us: my husband & I and our grown children and their significant others. The main castle was better than we expected. The view from the decks was incredible and you can comfortably spend all day out there. Our group enjoyed using the kayaks, fishing and snorkeling. The interior of the house was very nice and comfortable for a group of our size. It is a bit of a drive from town but there are several good restaurants and grocery store nearby. Jim, the property owner/manager, was very responsive to any questions that we had before and during our stay. We definitely plan to stay at the Castle again!

MAGICAL WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Castle in April 2011. Our daughter was married on the beach and her reception was held at the Castle. We hired Mise en Place to do the wedding catering - they did everything for us - I did not have to worry about a thing. Reno was the person I dealt with. The Castle accommodated every single one of our wishes - beautiful home to celebrate all the events of a wedding - plenty of space for40 people to be entertained - it is a first rate place - we could not have asked for one thing to be different. The pictures on the website are exactly as they appear - I only wish I had another daughter to get married there....the entire week was magical!!!

We had Tucca Restaurant cater for the rehearsal dinner and also went to their restaurant for dinner on our arrival. Ron (owner) could not have done more for us - food and presentation was wonderful.
Angela (caterer on the island) came to the Castle for a small dinner and again was more than pleasant. She and her staff cooked the food at the Castle and it was beautifully served. We also went to the Lighthouse Restaurant and had a very nice dinner even though we never wanted to leave the Castle.

I honestly cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay at the Castle was - I would love to have a family reunion there some day - there is not one negative thing about the Castle - I felt like a Queen!

FAMILY VACATION AT THE CASTLE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation this past spring at the Castle. I would highly recommend this spot. Jim and his staff were so easy to work with and very helpful with things to do and see. We had our kids and grandkids ranging from 7 to 2 years and they are all still talking about it. We bought fish from Jim's neighbor Karen and grilled at the house. It was wonderful, fresh fish, family and quiet surroundings. The Castle is on the quiet side of the island. We liked this because we could go to the "tourist" side of the island to shop and sightsee then go back to our own paradise. The kids really enjoyed the pool and private beach. The pool is downstairs so it is easy to monitor children for safety. I would highly recommend this place for a family vacation!
