East End Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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!

This summer, we are adding an addition to Snuggle Beach apartment -- making it a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment!!! You can still rent it as a 1 bedroom apartment, we will just lock off the second bedrooms and bathroom.

This apartment has been freshly painted and decorated in a colourful, Caribbean theme. There is a new, king-size bed with headboard, beautiful yellow comforter with matching sheets 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. Also coming this summer -- a dishwasher.

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.

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

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!!!!!!

2nd Stay at Snuggle Beach -- and we'll definitely be back again!

  • 5 of 5

We were here 4 years ago and loved it then, and finally got a chance to come back. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the apartment has recently been renovated, and now has a new kitchen with granite counter-tops and a new bathroom. It's such a peaceful and relaxing place and the beach is beautiful. We did a lot of snorkelling right off the beach and saw lots of fish and a stingray by the pillars. We could walk to a few restaurants (at the Morrits and the Reef and the Italian Kitchen). But you really do need a car because you would want to go to Rum Point Beach to swim with the stingrays or just spend the day on the lounge chairs. Loved "over the edge" restaurant, Tukka was "ok." Saw the Barefoot Man at the Reef, he's hilarious -- catch his dinner/show if you can. If you're coming in high season he sells out. Lots of watersports nearby too. Nadine & Gary were great hosts.

Snuggle Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our trip to the East End started out a little rough as there were a few problems with the property when we arrived. The jets in the whirlpool tub didn't work and it obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while, the air conditioner in the kitchen/living room didn't work, the satellite wasn't working, the DVD player didn't work, and one of the bathroom faucet handles was broken which made it pretty tough to turn on and off. However, once we let Nadine (who lives right upstairs) know about all of these problems she went out of her way to take care of as many problems as she could right away. She replaced the satellite box and the DVD player that day and had someone out to replace the water pump for the whirlpool tub within a couple of days. Some of the other things didn't get fixed while we were there but it didn't affect our enjoyment of the place at all.

The living space is pretty much exactly what it looks like in the pictures, nothing fancy but very nice. The real reason we booked this place was because of the deck, whirlpool tub, and beach and we couldn't have been happier with those things. We spent a lot of time out on that deck just marveling at what an amazing view we were looking at. The snorkeling right off the beach was really great especially right around the dock where all the fish congregate. If you like Italian food, there's a great new place right up the street called the Italian Kitchen...the garlic knots are fantastic.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Snuggle Beach. We've stayed in nicer places, but they were also a lot more expensive. You really get fantastic value for your money at this place and if you do have any problems or questions, Gary and Nadine are right upstairs and are always more than happy to do whatever they can to make your stay more enjoyable. So if you're just looking for a semi-private beach to relax on, catch some sun, and do a little snorkeling, I would definitely recommend Snuggle Beach.

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!

  • "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).
