About Nicole Ritch

My husband and I are Cayman Island natives. We have three children and have been fortunate enough to live on this beautiful island for most of our lives.

As vacation property owners and vacationers; we know how difficult traveling can be. We help our guest enjoy their vacation to the fullest by assisting with car rentals, wedding planning, water sports activities and other concierge services.

My husband keeps everything in the house tip top shape and is an avid gardener maintaining a beautiful garden so that our guests can eat fruits right off the tree! I ensure that all is in order in the home for the maximum comfort of our guests. Together we ensure the house has all that is needed to keep our guests happy.

We stand-out from other vacation rental owners by being more than just the owner behind the email. We personally meet our guests on check-in, maintain contact throughout their entire visit and perform the checkout. There are times we even enjoy a boat cruise or a night on the town with our new found friends! Ah the memories!

We strive to deliver an experience that leaves our guests feeling they not only have a Cayman home, but Cayman friends always happy to receive them like family.

We welcome you to The Ritch Residence!

Stayed at the home of the Ritch’s this year while visiting Grand Cayman. The experience was wonderful. Close to restaurants, shopping areas and beaches.

The home itself was indeed very comfortable and inviting. The porch and back garden were my favorites especially in the early morning.



Would recommend it highly for a great vacation destination.

Mix a large family reunion with this beautiful home … and watch stress melt away!

  • 5 of 5
The owners answered all of our queries beforehand and made us feel welcome even before we’d landed! Photos of this immaculate home are accurate – the picture of the house front made it easy to spot upon our arrival and the location is perfect: right on the main road to West Bay and across the street was a large grocery store, gas station, the Old Homestead museum, local restaurants and the beach! The owners greeted us, gave us a tour of the house and property – landscaped with delicious fruit trees and aloe, and provided a cell phone for local calls (most U.S. phones do not work there). They even took time to check with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. A short distance away is Hell, the turtle farm, Cracked Conch restaurant (with free access ladder for snorkeling- ask their friendly staff), and Barker’s Park (for the swamp-trail minded). The owners are very knowledgeable about Cayman, its attractions and restaurants. We definitely rented a car and were all over the island; there is a bus route just outside, too! It takes you to Caymana Bay and Georgetown. We were glad we picked up the tourism maps, magazines and brochures at the airport because they had a lot of great information including driving (left side of the road) with its rules and circles and how to ride the bus (which makes stops upon request between posted stands & can go off the route, too). We were able to order jerk chicken from the owner’s mother – it was the best we had, better than from a restaurant – her sauce is amazing! The kitchen was great – we’re a family of cooks; and they showed us the grill for our forays to the fish market. The ground floor bedrooms and baths were especially appreciated as some in our party have mobility issues. The kids enjoyed the electronic games and large screen TVs (when they weren’t – gasp – conversing with us!). This home is very comfortable and I recommend it to anyone (already told my friends) looking for a great location and attentive hosts! With all our compliments and appreciation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderfully warm comments Maize!

We are especially happy to hear how you managed to wrangle some conversation time with the kids! I’ve always had to drag my teens kicking and screaming from the big screen.

We are also happy to hear that you enjoyed the garden that we love sharing with our guests. Maybe you can get some juicy mangoes on your next visit!

Thank you again for the wonderful comments and details on what you loved about our house, location and service. It's what gives us the encouragement to continue our hard work wearing a smile.

We hope to see you, your family or friends very soon!

Amazing home Amazing owners Amazing location

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for genuine, thoughtful owners, great location, and a home with everything you need.... This is the place to stay! We and our wedding party stayed for a week. The Ritch family was so amazing. From helping us plan and host our welcome BBQ for out of town guests, to showing us how to use the aloe plant in the back, they were always there to offer a helping hand. They have truly thought of the smallest of details to make your stay memorable. Nicole was so helpful with my many many questions in preparation for the trip and offered recommendations to ensure we enjoyed only the best. Remembering this is an island and most resources need to be imported, you may stumble across a couple quirky things but nothing that would impede your stay, as the owners are quick to act. I would recommend a car, it just made things easier to go wherever we wanted, whenever. The bus runs every 30 minutes, except Sundays, and you can just hop on. Watch out for taxis, they are expensive. Grocery store across the street, and beach close by. Ask Nicole for restaurant recommendations. She sent us to only the best! We would definitely stay here again, and again. A big thank you to the Ritch family for all you did for us. We even received many compliments from our wedding guests.

If I could give 100 stars I would!!!

  • 5 of 5
There is so many wonderful things that I can say about my stay here...but I'll try to keep this as short as possible. The most wonderful thing about this house are the owners!!! Their hospitality was better than any hotel I have ever stayed at. Any requests that any of us had were taken care of right away and usually with an added perk. In other words the owners always went above and beyond in everything they did to make their home feel like my home while myself and 10 other people were on the Island. There were 11 people staying at the house and not once did it feel overcrowded. The house itself is amazing. Very well laid out and spaceous....we even had several other guests come over for BBQ dinners and morning brunches and the house accommidated everyone. The location of the house was also a HUGE plus. It was an easy walk across the street and up a block to the beach, it's walking distance to the local grocer, and close to all of the local sight seeing attractions. I would DEFINATELY recommend staying in this house and I would love to stay here again when coming back to Grand Cayman Island. Again I can't thank the owners enough for making my stay so comfortable and memorable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nelly for this amazing review!
It was wonderful meeting you and your family and we can’t thank you enough for making us feel welcome and allowing us to share such a special time with you all.
We were so grateful to everyone for keeping the house clean and returning it to us in excellent condition. This is not so easily done with a large group and we truly appreciate the obvious effort that you and your guests put into it.
We look forward to your next visit and hope to have even more amenities for you to enjoy by then!
Take care and all the best!
Your new Cayman Islands friends, Nicole and Ritch

Very good vocation home

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the house of Ritch's residence. The house is large, nicely decorated. We took care of this house as if it were our home. We especially like the two high efficiency dishwasher and two washing machine & dryer. They worked so efficiency so helpful for each day after came back from beach. Also the grocery store just right cross the street, so convenience.
The owners are such nice people.the restaurant recommendations were phenomenal. But we wish next time we will have enough supplies. We didn't have coffee maker for whole week and the last two day we ran out toilet pepper.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Yuan. It helps to make our home better for you and other guests.
I apologize for not getting that replacement pot sooner. They only arrived on island one week after you left. We now have a new one that works perfectly.
We try to provide adequate supplies for our guests while keeping costs low to maintain our excellent rental rates. We have now increased the amount of rolls provided and if you stay with us again ask that you please call us with any such issues so that we can resolve them as quickly as possible.
It was great having you stay with us and we hope you will visit again soon.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Our family has travelled extensively and Nicole and Rich made this one of our top memorable vacations. The home was beautiful and spacious, but it was amazing because of the personal attention and recommendations given to us by Nicole and Rich, the owners. Nicole is a fabulous chef who made a wonderful and authentic Caymanian breakfast in the morning giving us a great start to our day. The restaurant recommendations were just phenomenal. We have older teenagers and the home was centrally located for our activities (beach and diving). It was away from the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach, but close enough to easily to get to when we wanted to do something in that area. I cannot recommend this property enough. Fabulous and can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Hello Vickie,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. It really makes what we do that much more worth it.
It was my pleasure cooking for your family as it gave me the opportunity to revisit gluten free cooking.
It was nice to share experiences and tips with you about your vacation rental business.
We hope you'll visit again soon!

Ritch's Residence - Great Vacation Home

Ritch's Residence - Great Vacation Home
  • 5 of 5
My family of 13 stayed at the Ritch’s’s residence located in West Bay Grand Cayman for one week in July 2013. Location was perfect: very close to the beaches and snorkeling areas (highly recommend the Cemetary beach, lots of marine life to see just by snorkeling 200 meters from the beach), major tourist areas such as Gerogetown, Seven Mile Beach, and Camana Bay were just driving distance of only 15-20 minutes the most. The owners (Ritch and Nicole) were very accommodating and treated us like family. We greatly appreciated their hospitality and willingness to help: the owners helped us with our bags since we were already packed in the rental van and even took my mom to go to the fish market to get the fish she wanted to cook for the first night. They were even nice enough to arrange the sting ray city tour for my family, which we highly recommend to try. The sting ray tour included half day activities to the sting ray, lunch at Rum Point, and one snorkeling area for an affordable price. The couple even hung out with us for one day where we BBQ at the beach. The house was definitely big enough to fit 3 sets of family including two couples. The rooms were spacious and plenty to entertain ourselves when not in the mood to step out of the house. The owner maintains a variety of seasonal fruits (coconut, guava, bananas, sweetsop, soursop etc.) and herbal plants in their yard, which we made use almost every day. They even have the aloe vera plant accessible in their yard, which was very useful for sun burn remedy. The supermarket was walking distance and convenient to pick up the general necessities; however, recommend packing the non-refrigerated food and snacks from the states as it can get very pricy if staying longer than one week. Restaurants were also walking distance. Also if not in the mood to cook, Nicole’s mother is famous for her jerk chicken, orders are available Friday and Saturday evenings, just let them know ahead of time. Overall experiences at the Ritch’s residence was great, and highly recommend for a great family vacation, couples get away, group of friends, and for all ages.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review, Thank you so much Zalak! The pleasure was all ours!

Your wonderful family was our first ever large group and we are happy to say that you were a big ball of fun! Thank you guys so much for taking such good care of the house. As we don't take deposits it matters greatly that our guest are considerate of the work and effort we have put into our home.

Thank you also for the great suggestions and we hope to have everything in place for your next trip. Hopefully only a suitcase of clothing will be required!

Nicholas said to tell Eyan hello and he can't wait till you guys return. Thank you again for sharing your vacation with us.

Warmest regards,
Nicole Ritch
