Overview

About the property

A three bedroom, luxury beach house on the Caribbean Sea with a pool

This renovated, three bedroom home has every amenity you could want and including a solar heated pool! It has all the luxuries of your home but is set on over a half acre of land; the back door is steps away from the ocean. The cooling sea breezes frequently mean that the central air conditioning can be turned off without any discomfort.

The ambience is zen, calm and designed to have you forget all your worries. The fully outfitted kitchen has all of the amenities required to cook (or not), featuring stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and all of the necessities for a vacation including blender, coffee maker, microwave and, of course, an ice maker.

The dining room is set up for eight but can easily sit more if you have other family and friends over for a special occasion.

The living area features a flat screen LED TV with a DVD and Blue Ray player, Apple TV, an X-Box 360 and a selection of DVDs, CDs and games.

Each bedroom has its own thermostat so that everyone can be comfortable. The master bedroom features a king bed with an ensuite spa-like bathroom with an elegant shower with three showerheads, a double sink vanity and luxury linens. The other two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed upon request) share a bathroom with a tub and shower combination.

The main living area is just right for sitting (or laying) around - two large sofas (one that folds out to a queen sized bed, if required) and an extra large arm chair.

The screened-in porch is perfect for meals or escaping from the sun and the outdoor patio has lounging chairs and a charcoal barbecue (a gas grill is also available in the front). The back yard also features a fresh water shower for cleaning up after after snorkeling or swimming in the warm Caribbean ocean. A solar heated pool was added in 2014 and now things are perfect!

About Bonnie Gerow

We are both Canadians (and military brats!), living all over Canada, the United States and Germany until finding our home in the Cayman Islands. We have lived in Grand Cayman since 2007 and believe that our island is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean.

Bonnie Gerow purchased this villa in 2012

Why Bonnie Gerow chose Grand Cayman

We acquired the property from a family who owned No Big Ting for over 43 years. We had hoped one day to own a home in this neighbourhood and purchased it when the opportunity arose. We completed an extensive renovation of No Big Ting in late 2012 to enhance and modernise things without losing its charm. A solar heated salt-water pool was added in September 2014 and we continue to update and improve the home. We think that this area is one of the best on island - snorkeling is steps away from the back deck and the ocean is protected by a reef no more than two hundred yards from the water's edge.

What makes this villa unique

This little beach cottage has become a not so little beach home. We have tried to incorporate all of the special things and amenities that we like to see when we travel and stay in vacation rental properties. Luxury linens, comfortable and modern furnishings, a proper functioning kitchen with all of the utensils and cooking items that will allow you to enjoy your meals, and the ambience of the Caribbean are our goals. The addition of the pool has made it just perfect and we can't be happier.

We think living on the beach is a dream come true and hope you will agree.

Beautiful, clean, and serene

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at No Big Ting for our daughter's wedding in Grand Cayman. The property was absolutely perfect! The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, tupperware, and more! The view from the house is gorgeous and the rooms are all far enough from each other to provide privacy for all housemates. The house is conveniently located close to many restaurants, we had a great time at Rum Point and Kaibo. Bonnie was a joy to work with, we will absolutely work with her again for our next trip to the island!

Chicest Private Rental Home at Rum Point

  • 5 of 5

We looked for several hours online before booking the wonderful NBT. We were so happy we did. The renovations are top notch, beautiful contemporary finishes, and great layout for a large group or family of four as ours. The house is so well equipped from the kitchen to linens, outdoor gear, etc. We knew we did not want to stay full time on Seven Mile beach because of the crowds and less space than a house. I am so happy we rented NBT and were able to cook in, travel up to Rum Point for Kaibo's Tuesday's all you can eat Bar-B-Q dinner with band, rent additional snorkel gear for our children at Red Sail up the road, enjoy the privacy of the screened in porch with ocean views, and deck for watching our children swim in the pool. We did travel over to Seven Mile Beach and did enjoy the crystal clear waters but loved returning home to NBT. The winds at NBT are so welcome and offer a nice cool breeze. Seven Mile Beach is very hot in the sand. There are a few small mini-markets 15 minutes away at Morritt's and down the road at Chisolms. Better shopping at Hurley's (like a Harris Teeter) when you arrive or are back in town sightseeing. We loved St. Pedro House, Botanical Garden, Easter Brunch at the Ritz Hotel, Calypso Grill, Tukka and Luca our last day. Cooking 2 meals in a day was great. We loved having the car to explore the island looking for more snorkeling spots, see the blowholes, etc. You will not be disappointed renting No Big Ting. You are surrounded by million dollar properties and this house is set back from the road quite a bit which was nice. The owners are lovely and have put a lot of thought into this beautiful home. Which is actually a very Big Ting!

Awesome Property - home away from home

  • 5 of 5

No Big Ting is just as pictured. Everything presented in a way you would present your own home. The extras provided in the kitchen for cooking were so welcomed. We do not find this in many of the homes we have rented elsewhere. The pool was so refreshing and the beach was really nice to walk each morning. We saw 3 people the entire week we were there. I cannot express how lovely this home is. Thank you Bonnie, for sharing this awesome property with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to let us know that you enjoyed your time at No Big Ting! We love to cook even when we are on holiday so have tried to ensure that our kitchen has whatever we would expect when we are in a rental property. We do hope to see you back again when you are next in Grand Cayman!

Beautiful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

No Big Ting is really a BIG Ting! This is an immaculately kept home with new appointments everywhere. The photos really do not do justice to this home. Bonnie and Colin (these folks are very kind and "class acts!") have renovated this home into the perfect vacation spot on Rum Point. The home has modern appliances all around, Apple TV, Flat screen, WiFi, printer, new BBQ grille, bicycles and an excellent performing AC system!!! Our group will be back for sure.

Thank you Bonnie!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a family of 7 for a week's vacation. From the moment we opened the front door to NBT until the time we left, we were all very happy that we chose this as our home for the week.

Everything was ready for us when we arrived. And the house offered more than we could have imagined. For seven people, there was plenty for us to do without getting bored. And none of us felt the least bit crowded in this house. We utilized the kitchen for every meal and all of the dishes we needed, plus more, were there.

We utilized the snorkeling gear most often as well as the gas grill. Everyone loves being able to walk right into the pool. There was enough seating inside and outside of the covered patio to enjoy the view.

We did venture out a few times to enjoy some local shopping and eating. One day, we did take our kids to the Turtle Farm and explore SMB. Wet knew right then that we had picked the best place to stay! No worries, peaceful and so serene.

We were able to meet Bonnie and Colin. They are so nice!

I would recommend NBT as your lodging while visiting Grand Cayman. You will love it, just as we did!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

No Big Ting is a big ting!!! A lovely three bedroom cottage right on the beach in Cayman Kai, Grand Cayman. Bonnie and Colin have renovated this older beachside home into a perfect get away. It has it's own pool and beach right off the patio. The renovations are done with exquisite taste ; very light and Caribbean. Bonnie sees that the home is immaculate upon your arrival and sees promptly to anything else you might need. No Big Ting is located on the road to Rum Point which is an idyllic part of Grand Cayman. Although you might be 45 minutes from the "Miami strip" or the famous Seven Mile Beach and multi-million dollar condos, you are in paradise. It is what we all dream of when we want to visit a Caribbean island. Yes, groceries are 30 minutes away but you have high quality restaurants almost within walking distance and gorgeous beaches. Bike riding is great and the bikes are ready at NBT. Bonnie and Colin have another larger home up the street called Coral Loft which is wonderful and larger four bedroom home on the beach. Both are kept in perfect condition and are a delight to rent. We have been to both several times and pick one depending on how many there are of us. NBT has three bedrooms but only one master suite. Therefore, if couples are sharing costs, the bedroom and bath situation is not equal but for families or less people it is heaven. If any problems arise which is rare, Bonnie and Colin and their team is there right away to be sure they are handled. You can ride your bike or walk down the street to Rum Point and party, eat, or take a catamaran out to swim with the stingrays or just spend a quiet day at Starfish Point walking among the starfish. You cannot go wrong with this rental. We have rented in the Caribbean for the last fifteen years and this is one of the best.

The Rum Point area is away from all of the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach and the towns. The beautiful sand beaches and near constant sea breezes will instantly provide you with a sense of serenity and privacy. No Big Ting is a half mile from one of the best water resorts on Grand Cayman, named Rum Point Beach, having two restaurants, a bar and all of the water sports you can wish for including personal water craft rentals, trike rentals, stand up paddle boards, a glass bottom boat and swimming in some of the calmest waters on the island. Tours can also be booked including a trip to the famous stingray city and sandbar. There are lounge chairs, restrooms, change rooms and showers (all free). The locals moor their boats in the cove on Sundays, playing music and hanging out.
