BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
CaymanBayEscape far exceeded our expectations of a great, private oceanfront home and villa for our family of seven. Booking a hotel would have cost us three timesas much.
This spacious villa was secluded, but not remote (14 minutes from the airport on the new By Pass Highway) and ten minutes to Camana Bay (the new shopping area).
When we first entered the villa and saw the blue Caribbean that we had all to ourselves, our eyes popped out. Each morning we would have coffee and watch the sunrise-and, in the evenings, have a cocktail and watch the sunset. There are French doors in the two master bedrooms that have panoramic views of the ocean-as well as the cottage. We are seasoned snorkelers and divers, and would rent tanks, dive off the back ladder, and have the most astounding dive in this protected marine park (eels, stingrays, parrot fish, and turtles). We drove three minutes to rent our tanks at Di-Tech.
The five star restaurants that were close by are amazing: Calypso Grill, Pappagallos, Osetra, and Morgans Harbor-are no more than a 10 minute drive. Horseback riding was a five minute drive. My two kids are runners are had a great time running along the ocean on the way to Cobalt Coast.
We had searched online for days to find this gem and booked it again for next year at a 25% discount. This is, by far, one of the most memorable vacation that our family has. Why? We were together in this spacious, very clean, spectacular ocean front villa-and felt like we live here-not tourists!

FANTASTIC VACATION BY 4 COUPLES

  • 5 of 5
Our week at this home on the beach in Cayman is one of 3 vacations in my life that I did not want to come home from!!! We had 4 couples share the home and found the accomodations to be VERY comfortable. The house was very clean and well maintained, but the photos do not capture the charm and relaxing ambiance of this home.
The poolside veranda was phenomenal for laying in the sun and reading, our post-lunch pina colada hour, and champaign and snacks for sunset every evening. The kitchen was well equipped for our group of food lovers who ate in almost as much as we went out. We found he Cracked Conch restaurant to be a special place with great food (and this was not an easy group to impress when it comes to food).
We strongly recommend taking up the host, Michael, on his recommendations for local diving (DiveTech was within walking distance for both great shore diving and Cobalt Coast for boat dives) and a local boat captain, JP, who got our vote for the friendliest and most accomodating man on Cayman. JP took us on a fantastic afternoon tour to Stingray City, Rum Point, and a couple of other beautiful beaches. His boat was quite comfortable for all 8 of us, and he provided some excellent recommendations for not too well known local "must sees". I suggest you book a day or half-day with JP early in your vacation.
This house was very private, but a quick walk / drive to about anything you could want on the island. We spent a lot of time out by the pool / beach with music playing on the house system that accomodated one of our gang's iPod. We also spent a lot of time beach walking on the beach to the northwest (right as you are looking out to the sea in the photos). We saw less than 10 people all week, just to give you an idea of the secluded privacy this home affords you.
Everyone in our group said this was a "Bucket List" vacation. We are sure you will find it to be one also. I am pretty certain we will be going back soon. My only concern is "Can it be as good the second time around???"
THANKS Michael.

THANK YOU FOR OPENING YOUR GRACIOUS HOME TO US!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Michael and Family, our most hearfelt thanks for opening up your peaceful villa to us. What a relaxing week! The snorkeling out the back was unparalleled, and how we enjoyed the friendly iguanas, and awaking to the sweet dulcimers of bird songs each morning! Our son really enjoyed gathering coconuts and experiencing his first fresh coconut meat! The locals exhibited their very warm hearts to us, and in particular, they really took our 12 year old to heart. The Caribbean bakery a few minutes away would ask us if we would like to try the rock bread, (or whatever else was baking), ... and coming warm, straight from the baker's oven, what a delight! We immensely enjoyed dining at Papagallos...we give their seafood and melt in your mouth cheescake five stars...and my son greatly enjoyed Bogart perching on his arm! We drove around the island and again experienced such warmth from the locals! Stingray City with Red Sail at Rum Point is a must.....where else can you hold these special denizens of the sea in your arms..and feel them gently nuzzle you for squid treats?
We dearly hope to return again soon!
Warmest Regards to you and yours, Allison, Steve and Joshua

SPECTACULAR SPLENDOR IN THE CARIBBEAN

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven had the most amazing weather, food, and accommodations in Cayman. The owner recommended Calypso Gril Restaurant, which is five minutes away by car. We dined on the veranda, overlooking the stars, with five star cuisine. We snorkeled and dived in the back of our home, with groupers, sting rays, and huge angel fish up, close, and personal. Then, we went horseback riding just a three minute drive away, galloping on the secluded beaches east of CaymanBayEscape. Sitting and having a libation at sunset or java in the morning on the ocean bench was the unparalleled. When lazy, we drove five minutes down the road for meals to great restaurant on the water-at reasonable prices. When we returned to Chicago, we contacted the owner and booked next April, 2013-at a 25% discount. Best value after searching the internet extensively!!!

PEACEFUL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
After working 2 straight years without a vacation my boss tells me to get out of town and go on a long vacation and dont take your cell phone or laptop. So, being the good employee as I would like to think that I am took him at his word and began to do my research as where I would like to go and de-stress.
After a small amount of research on VRBO I continued to keep coming back to this house vrbo site. I contacted the owner with a few questions which he was very helpful in responding and at that point I made the final decision to stay at this home. Once my husband and I drove into the drive we bagan to leave all of the past behind back in the States and begin to unwind into a week of bliss. The home is very relaxing an has all of the amenities to provide a stressless vacation. We did not need to pack anything extra such as hairdryers or beachtowels or toiletries as it was all provided. We did stop at Fosters Food Fair and loaded up on groceries as I love to cook and had all of the utincils and such to prepare meals that were enjoyed each day out on the patio over looking the pool and the carribean. We also had dinner at Pappagallo, which this is a must for any guest staying at the home or on the island. Very nice atmosphere and the food was delicious. Found a great church we attended on Sunday (Calvary Baptist) and to our surprise the house keeper and property manager attend as well. Very sweet and wonderful ladies that I hope to maintain a friendship for years to come.
Snorkeling is good behind the home, we spent numerous hours exploring there. And afterwards lounged in the pool on the rafts that we left behind for the next guest to enjoy.
What we loved mainly about the home was the privacy and seclusion. No one walked around the home and it was off the main road where you did not hear any traffic or road noise you typically hear back in the States. The home also has a security system, but we never felt unsafe at any point.
We will difinitly make this a place where we would like to return and stay again and also recommend to our friends for their stressfree vacation.

CAYMAN BAY ESCAPE - IF I OWNED IT I'D KEEP IT ALL TO MYSELF!!

Cayman Bay Escape - if I owned it I'd keep it all to myself!!
  • 5 of 5
We took our four adult kids (20 to 29) to this spot for a week, and while we hoped to enjoy ourselves we never expected to have one of the best family vacations we've ever had. We have done cruises, we have stayed at all inclusive resorts, and we do enjoy them. But the trouble vacationing with older kids in a resort or on a cruise is that as soon as you arrive they go their way and you go yours, and you never see each other until the plane ride home. But this is a real home, in a real neighborhood, and it made all the difference. We loved the pool, loved lounging around the house, loved swimming in the ocean out back, and the young adults ADORED the Tiki Beach each and every night until it closed. We cooked in or BBQed on the deck almost every night, with lots of laughs (and photos. Then each evening, the kids took off for the nightlife just 10 minutes away on 7 mile beach while we sipped wine and watched the sun setting with the occasional local fisherman silhouetted on the distant jetty. We ate out at Alfresco's one night, and enjoyed the food and views. We also took a day trip to the other side of the island, to Rum Point, and spent the day there. Great fun and killer Blue Iguanas (curacao and rum). We went to the national park just up the road (literally) and met some of the park staff who told us about their conservation efforts and helped us identify some birds and lizards.

We also did some traditional stuff, like the catamaran trip to stingray city, which should definitely not be missed, and a snorkel on the big reef. We tried to snorkel off the nearby beaches nearer to the wall, but to be honest, the snorkeling outside of our door, especially toward the jetty and into the old dock there, was great, and better than anywhere nearby. The kids did a sunset cruise, and they went horseback riding with Honeysuckle Stables, a five minute walk up the road. (He lets you take the horses on the beach, and into the water.)

The photos, even the video, for CBE do not do it justice. We all agreed. The premises is clean, nicely decorated, and the layout is great for a group. Housekeeping came in once during the week to freshen up, which was nice. The owner called mid-week to check in, a terrific touch. Sometimes “Fred” the iguana suns himself on the TV antenna.. but hey.. it’s the islands!

We have already recommended this property to friends.

Owner's Response: My wife and I appreciate all of the wonderful, flattering reviews that we have received from our guests during the last decade. If you are a prospectrive renter, as the review indicates, we shall call you from the United States to assure that you have an enjoyable, wonderful, and most memorable stay at our villa and cottage.

The snorkeling and diving your backyard will be world class.! You have nearly a football field of oceanfront to share with your special friends and family. As an advanced diver, and all three of my children are certified divers, the 120 foot clarity of the oceanfront of CaymanBayEscape is stunning and breath-taking.

My wife and I visit this property every few months to assure that it is well maintained and that the place is kept to the highest of standards. We take pride in the number of superior reviews on VRBO--but do not take them for granted. We shall continue to raise the bar of our amenities so that our guests have memorable vacations as the ones who have written the complimentary and flattering reviews above. We are truly grateful and appreciative and never underestimate the importance of guest convenience, comfort, and pleasure--The Caymanian style.
