Keywords: Oceanview, 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms with 4 balconies offering 4 different views of torquoise-cyan-azure-cerulean Carribean Sea on semi-secluded Pappagallo Beach.
WANT A TRANQUIL GETAWAY: Located on a take-your-breath away sandy, semi-private, semi-secluded beach with a pier jutting out into the blue sea, where you can watch the sun rise or sun set - coffee or cocktails in hand and decide which color blue suits the description of the sea. Neighbouring is a National Park, home to the rare black parrot which lends its name to the beach (pappagallo is Italian translation for parrot). Within this oasis is a 5 kilometre walking/jogging trail where you can work up a sweat. Cool down with a swim and/or snorkel session off the pier and explore the beauty of another national park - a reef underwater filled with marine and coral life of many vibrabt colors - great underwater photography.

Somewhat semi-retired, my husband and I enjoy travelling but always enjoy returning to our home in Canada with children and grandchildren. This condo at Villas Pappagallo is a constant getaway from chilling winters for us. We did not consider renting until some friends visited and said 'This is such a cozy condo ... just perfect to chill out in sun, sea & sand.Why not share your paradise with others?'
On my eleventh visit to the Cayman Island, I was an accidental tourist who ended up on Pappagallo Beach - my destination was actually the restaurant across the street. When I walked up the front entrance stairs, and through the archway past the acai berry trees , I fell in love ... with the big blue pool, palm trees dancing in the wind, beach and more beach and the confrontation of so many color of blues that layered the sea.
I had worked and visited at least 10 other tropical islands but none had the immediate feel of rest and relaxation bundled with paradise. I would like to think I made a good choice. :)
My favorite thing is to watch the sun rise and the sun set. So I take my coffee out on the pier in the morning and watch different birds feed in the ocean. A long walk on the side of the beach that runs paralell with the nature reserve always make me light headed. Black parrots and blue iguanas live here but they don't like to be seen so it's fun trying to find them hiding. Harmless creatures.
Reading under the shade of the palm trees,, swimming and snokelling in between is my idea of absolute chill out.
Sunset is special - happy hour with coctails on the pier - it is amazing how much more beautiful the sunset appears!
