About Don Dickey

No Snow was built by the family over 40 years. It has been a recreation destination for many, many people over the years. Two to three generations of some families have enjoyed. We hope you enjoy our home.

Don Dickey purchased this house in 1970

Why Don Dickey chose North Side

The property was purchased and the house built because the island was a beautiful and friendly destination.

What makes this house unique

The large common area allows the entire group to congregate. It also permits smaller groups to engage in different activities. The large round table allows guests to eat as one group. A very well equipped kitchen makes meal preparation easy. The washer and dryer in the kitchen lets guests travel with fewer clothes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a wonderful vacation at No Snow on Grand Cayman Island. When we arrived we found everything in perfect condition and were amazed how spacious and nice all the bedrooms, baths, living room and the great kitchen with two fridges and everything you would ever need for cooking.

And then we went out on the beautiful porch overlooking the ocean and the WOW swimming pool. This place has everything you could imagine for a vacation. We jumped into the pool immediately.

The snorkeling out in front was the best on the island. We had a lovely leisurely vacation at this wonderful house.

Oh I want to remark about the large round table with the big lazy susan that comes around to you when you pull the rope underneath.

We give No Snow a Huge 5 Stars.

Beautiful location - peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Don Dickey is probably the most accommodating host on VRBO- he was kind enough to send us maps and information regarding his home before our arrival and answered our numerous questions. No Snow is on the "quiet" side of the island which is nice but it is was very windy during Christmas - sadly this means a lot of trash on the beach and a strong undertow - not for little kids - Rum Point is a short drive and has calmer waters - also a wonderful excursion to see the stingrays. The house is older but well laid out and has a great view - perhaps not the luxury rental that the price might suggest although the Caymans are expensive. The kitchen is better equipped than our own and we had everything needed to make a wonderful Christmas dinner. Our teenage girls got a huge kick out of the Lazy Susan table too. We had some issues with a flood and hot water but they were dealt with immediately - even on Christmas Eve and the staff are lovely. We used and left extra snorkelling equipment which was one of the highlights - the reef is right out front and once the wind dies down it is a wonderland of fish, octopus and even the occasional stingray - We would stay again and preferred that side of the island to the very busy, cruise ship side of seven mile beach, although the beach is spectacular over there. The house is big enough for a family reunion (such as ours) and has a great floor plan - there are games , which we enjoyed and coffee whilst watching the sunrise was beautiful. Enjoyed our vacation - would go back.

Family adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at No Snow last summer. The view of the back patio, or from the dining room, made you feel as if you were all alone on the island. The shallow water just a few yards away was warm an inviting. We spent hours snorkeling out to the breakers, and paddleboarding along the coast. Just a short drive to rum point for dinner and drinks, or on out to starfish point for some evening exploring makes the houses location ideal. Plenty of room for all our crew to spread out for some personal space and a large open interior to keep everyone involved at mealtime.

We definitely want to return.

Great place to stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We found No Snow to be very much as described. The location is wonderful. The Rum Point area where it is located is about a 45 minutes drive from the main island town. The density of tourists on the north side, even in peak season, is low. There are some local restaurants, public beaches, and a convenience grocery store for times when a trip into town is not warranted. Grand Cayman roads are well maintained which made driving on the British side a bit easier. The view from the property towards the Caribbean is beautiful. To our surprise, we were informed a month or so before arrival that the owner had added a small pool to the property!

Upon arrival we found the property to be clean inside and out. We were a big multi generational family group and there was lots of room for both joint and separate activities. The kitchen is large, equipped to a good standard, and made cooking for a large group easy. There were plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans...and even two toasters. (The bread at Kirk's supermarket in town is excellent!) Grocery shopping with availability of both U.S. and British products was fun. The supermarkets reflect the high standard of living on the island.

There is a local property manager who can be easily contacted in case of need.

There was lots of room on the street side of the house to park rented cars. Rented cars are a necessity.

We had dry, breezy, and warm weather with very little need to run the air conditioning. We did not notice any lack of hot water.

All in all, hard to imagine a nicer place to stay for a family reunion! I was in charge of planning most of the trip and Don, the owner, made me a hero for finding such a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: There was a lot of contact with our guest before the trip. He took seriously getting everything in place for the family. It is a gratifying that someone who is quite meticulous found No Snow up to his standards.

Great house for large Groups

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting No Snow for over five years and working with Don Dickey has been a pleasure. The house is spacious and lends it self to good times around the dinner table and living area. The back porch is a great place for sunrises or lounging over looking the ocean. The snorkeling is fantastic right outside the house but we do most of our diving in and around George Town. Rum Point and Starfish point are not far away. Having two refrigerators and the open kitchen is a great plus with the larger groups and the bedrooms are very comfortable. We have recommended No Snow to many friends.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house location is great for those who want a quiet island vacation. It accommodates a large group comfortably. It was easy to prepare meals in the well stocked kitchen.

There is good snorkeling in front of the house. The ocean view is beautiful.

I hope to return.

Great for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

No Snow was a wonderful place for our family to stay when we visited Grand Cayman! We highly recommend this vacation home. It has the following qualities:

• Peaceful and relaxing

• Wonderful snorkeling within walking distance. You can do nice snorkeling right in your back yard, or if you walk a ½ mile or so down the road you can enter the water at Cayman Kai public beach and experience AWESOME snorkeling from there all the way to Rum Point. We spent hours doing this in water that had amazing visibility. We saw several sting rays, a couple of Sea Turtles, many, many varieties of amazing fish and beautiful coral.

• Quick access to the Stingray sand bar from Run Point where you can swim with and pet the stingrays.

• It is spacious and has an open family room / dining room area which lends itself well to family time. The kitchen was well equipped, with even spices provided.

• Best value. For the price we felt No Snow provided better value than other options

• Great for large groups. Beds were comfortable and there were 4 bathrooms, which was convenient.

• Large supply of bath towels and beach towels

• Don Dickey coordinates the bookings. He has personal knowledge of the house as well as the Island and is willing and able to offer helpful advice. He was fair, pleasant, responsive and accommodating.

It is our understanding that winds during certain times of the year make water activities less enjoyable and even dangerous on the North Shore, but we experienced calm weather during our stay.

Our only complaint was that the hot water supply is VERY limited in all showers except for the master bathroom. We also suggested to Don that he replace some of the linens and pillows as well as rusted curtain rods and the kayak.

We hope we have the opportunity to repeat the wonderful vacation we had in Grand Cayman, staying at No Snow.

No Snow is on the north side of Grand Cayman. Generally the ocean breeze blows directly in from the sea. The balmy breeze has little pollen and is great, clean air. Snorkeling right off the beach is enjoyable. The ocean side deck lets you see the rising sun and is shaded for your comfort in the late afternoon.
