Overview

About the property

1-3 Bedroom Beachfront Apartment, Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Snuggle Beach - A Romantic Getaway for 2 !

This spacious, private 1 bedroom apartment is located on the ground floor / beach level of a large 3-storey house in the East End of Grand Cayman. It walks out directly to a stunningly beautiful white powdery sandy beach, lush with vegetation and palm trees, right on your doorstep. Lounge chairs are on the beach and there is great snorkeling right off the beach!

You have the option, for a slightly higher fee, of making it a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment!!! You can, however, just rent it as a 1 bedroom apartment, we will just lock off the second bedrooms and bathroom.

If you need yet another bedroom, we can add one more bedroom and bathroom, again there would be an extra charge.

This apartment has been freshly painted and decorated in a colourful, Caribbean theme. There is a new, king-size bed with headboard, beautiful coral comforter and colourful Caribbean artwork on the walls by local artist, Nadine Brown.

The large living room has a pull-out sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full-sized fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and all cutlery, utensils, dishes. Lovely dining table that sits 4 people.

The views from all windows are spectacular. There is an 8 foot wide by 30 foot long patio with lounge chairs, and the piece de resistance is the built-in circular hot tub overlooking the Caribbean Sea at the end of the patio.

Less than 5 minutes away is a public beach, a grocery store, a liquor store, a large souvenir shop, two dive operators (including Ocean Frontiers, our recommendation for experienced divers), a lively beach bar with great food, and "The Barefoot Man" playing 2 nights a week at the Reef Resort (a must see! He has over a dozen CD's out -- a really fun evening -- packaged as a Dinner/show ). Also 2 minutes away is The Italian Kitchen, or in the other direction, Tukka Restaurant -- don't miss their fabulous Sunday Brunch!

If you are a couple, or small family, and want a peaceful, serene, tropical laid-back atmosphere and privacy, this is the place for you. Anything you need to supplement your stay is just a short drive away. However, there are only few places in the Cayman Islands where you can walk for miles without seeing other tourists -- just your own footprints in the sand!

NOTE: VRBO Rates listed are incorrect due to the constantly fluctuating US Dollar. VRBO will not allow us to list the prices in USD because we are not located in the USA, even though we quote in USD and charge in USD. Please refer to our own website for the correct rates.

Also, it is assumed that if there are 2 people, you want the 1 bedroom unit, or 1 bdr plus sofa-bed. If you use "Instant Booking" through VRBO and there are 4 people, you will get the 1 bedroom unit with the pull-out sofa.

Extra bedrooms CANNOT be booked through VRBO, just the 1 bedroom unit. If you want 2 separate bedrooms, then you MUST contact me: Firstly, to see if it is available, (it also attaches to another unit). Secondly, for instructions how to fill out the reservation form in order to get the additional room and bathroom added.

When you book an additional bedroom the rate jumps as the additional room has a separate air conditioning unit [and full bathroom] and that is essentially what you are paying for --- the extra electricity usage and higher cleaning fee.

  • "Snuggle Beach" apartment can be rented as either a 1 bedroom unit, in which case the 2nd bedroom & bathroom are locked off and not accessible, OR it can be rented as a full 2 bedroom apartment at a slightly higher rate. Hence the price jump between 2 people and 3+ people. If you are 2 guests and you each want your own room, then you will have to use the 3 bedroom rate to "unlock" the second bedroom. Reason for price jump: More cleaning [maids will charge us a higher rate], more electricity (especially A/C) is used, more laundry is generated (which also uses more water & electricity).

June 13-20 2008 Trip

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start in describing our trip to CI.

The accommodations were perfect and as advertised. If you are wanting to get away from it all, this is the place.

The service and amenities were first class.

This is one of the few areas on the island that has a beautiful sandy "virtually private" beach.

Snorkeling around the island was incredible. Just off the shoreline we seemed to step right into an aquarium...Tropical fish and bright coral everywhere. A sight we will never forget. Seven Mile Beach, Rum Point, Northside and right here at Snuggle beach are areas we would suggest for snorkeling.

We reserved with Captain Marvin's for the snorkel tour to Stingray City. One of the cheaper priced tours but was sufficient and well managed. Stingray City is a must see!!

I would suggest eating at Calypso Grill and if you like pizza, the Brick Oven Pizza at Grand Harbor.

We reserved our rental at Andy's. You will need a rental since the house is about an hour from the airport. Driving is somewhat an adventure if you are used to driving on the right!!

Overall, a great trip and well worth the drive to the east side.

Regards... L & R

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! I have had many people suggest Calypso Grill (even though it's quite far away). Will try the Brick Oven next time I'm down! Sandra

Snuggle Beach

  • 5 of 5

A dream come true where you could walk out the front door and be standing on the beach. Far away from the crowds and noise of 7 mile beach but close enough that a leisurely drive could take you there.

Best Beach House Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First let me begin by saying what a wonderful time i had in Cayman and my choice of accommodation made it even more magical. The beach house was comfortably decorated which made it feel like home and waking up to the sound of the sea gave me such peace, just what I needed to start my day, the secluded "get away" feel of the property also helped me to just relax and unwind. Definitely choosing to vacation there again, and spending a longer time of course. :)

Cayman Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to the Cayman Islands and stay in this rental and we're already thinking about our next visit back to this lovely country! The rental was bright, clean, plenty of space for 2 people and the terrace with the HotTub was the best part! Watching wind surfers go by was peaceful and relaxing. We went fishing with Captain Herman at the Morritts (which we walked to along the beach) and caught barracuda which we BBQ'd for dinner when we got home. All and all, we are so happy with this rental. Sandra, thanks for providing us with such detailed info on arrival, where to eat, things to do and such. You made it a breeze for us! Hope to book another trip next year!!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental on the East End of the island. The apartment is comfortably spacious enough for two and we spent most of our time on the patio or in the Hot Tub at night. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the wifi worked well. Most days, we were out exploring the island -- you definitely need a car if you want to do this, the island is a lot bigger than we thought. If you're an early bird, you will love the sunrise, so beautiful and peaceful. There were 3 restaurants within walking distance and we tried them all, Italian Kitchen was our favourite. The grocery store is also walking distance. Having said this, you still need a car if you want to go sight-seeing (Don't miss Rum Point -- much prettier than commercialized 7 mile beach). Nadine was very kind and helpful, checking in with us form time-to-time without being intrusive. Sandra sent us a package of information before we came, which was also very helpful and we were able to plan our stay before we got there. All in all, it was a great stay and we wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

PURE HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here. Nadine is the most wonderful host! So beautiful inside and out. She is so warm, So so friendly, kind, easy going. She really cares about her guests and makes them feel so at home. The house is so private, the most amazing views of the ocean. It is far enough away from the condos so there is no one around. We kited right in front of the house, snorkeled saw tons of conch, starfish, barracudas, stingrays, turtles. The current is strong so best to walk up the beach and will carry you right down to the house.. It is a dream place to stay and I really really did not want to leave. I highly recommend this beautiful piece of paradise. You will be so happy you did!!!!!!

Located in the East End of Grand Cayman, in the community of Colliers, we are away from all the tourist crowds for a truly relaxing and peaceful holiday. Yet we are less than 5 minutes from fine dining, casual dining, the grocery store, internet cafe, beach bar, watersports and many other things. Be as active or as secluded as you want!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $150
Refundable damage deposit $400
Tax Rate 13.0%

1. Rates are subject to change until confirmed.
2. You are booking ONLY the 1 bedroom apartment if you have said there are 4 people. If you want to add the additional bedroom, you must say there are 6 people so that you get the correct rate. This gives you the extra bedroom AND a full bathroom. The additional room is subject to availability, it's a "lock off" unit meaning there is a chance that the guests who booked Cayman Beach House have added another bedroom to their unit. Email me to verify, please.
3. All guests are required to fill in our own Reservation form, through our private website, (minus any credit card info as you are paying for it through VRBO) because our property manager manages several properties, and needs the reservation forms to all be in the exact same format. www CaymanParadiseVillas. com
4. Once we get that reservation form, we generate your confirmation and send you several attachments (vrbo's website doesn't allow for attachments, just text) that give you a map to follow, detailed driving instructions, suggestions on places to eat nearby, things to do nearby, backup property manager -- who is also the head chef at a resort and offers an in-house chef service and you will get a copy of that menu, house rules, locations of other things you may need: Pharmacies, grocery store & convenience store, liquor store, scuba diving operators, etc. All very useful information that will get you familiar with the area to help plan your stay and make your stay more enjoyable. We look forward to having you stay with us !!!
