Little Dissappointing

  • 3 of 5

Villa Mora has lovely amenities but there is no swimming or snorkelling from the beach. As of Oct 2016, the sea grass starts at the shore and grows out through the top of the water. You cannot swim over it, because it scrapes your face, is covered if fuzzy algae and it smells of sulphur (rotten eggs). Putting on wetsuit boots, you can walk over the top of it for 15 minutes and still not reach the end. We later kayaked out, but the snorkelling is poor and there is not much to see. For the effort, you’d be much better going elsewhere, e.g. Smiths Cove, Sports Beach. Further, the beach in front of the house is covered in mounds of dead sea grass that washes up each morning, which is not pictured on the site. They clean the beach before you arrive, but by Day 3 it was covered again. We asked to move, as we have a baby and toddler, and needed stay close to the house with a beach we could play on/swim from (the outings to nearby beaches were a big hassle). Jim Leavitt was not only unhelpful but hostile, said that he was a lawyer, that what we said about the sea grass was simply untrue and that if we moved we would not be refunded. Family flew in from the US and UK, and we had been looking forward to this for 6 months, so we were very disappointed with our experience. The house is also for sale, so you will find many things not working properly, the hot tub either runs too hot (107 degrees) or too cold. Pam and Paula the property managers were helpful and responsive. Eddie runs a great grocery delivery service. If you have a big party, the locals recommended other houses with other agencies, including Coral Reef house at Cayman Villas. Do not go to Rum Point/Cayman Kai, as it is 1-hr drive from everything else, and the water is rough with strong currents for much of the year. We dove out of the West Bay with Living the Dream, and the sites were sensational.

Owner's Response: Karen, sorry for your disappointment. Villa Mora does have lovely amenities, but management and the owners cannot control mother nature. Sea grass comes and goes with storms and seasons. This October water levels have been unusually low and more sea grass exposed. If you walked 15 minutes you would have been in 6000' of water. Snorkeling is very good at Villa Mora as other reviews on vrbo, homeaway, trip advisor and www.grandcaymanvillas.net can attest. Snorkeling is nice at Smith Cove where the reef is further out and it is a protected "cove". The beach was cleaned prior to your arrival - again, we cannot control mother nature. You could/should have asked Pam to have sea grass removed or pushed to the sides even. She responded to your other requests. We could not move you to another home without there being serious villa problems - 6BR stand alone private villas are not hotels where you can change rooms. Each home has a separate owner who had been fully paid along with the Cayman Island tax authority. We are agents for the owners, your contract was with the owner of this one home. You failed to mention that you threatened to write negative reviews unless "we worked with you", which we did when we had the owner provide you with kayaks at the owner's expense. You were obviously looking for a perfect sandy beach, like 7 mile beach. Next time you should stay there in one of the high rise multi-family condo clubs. Many homes are for sale and still rented. Anything not working properly should have been reported to Pam and it would have been repaired. Hot tubs are just that - HOT! The temp is set at 102 like hot tubs everywhere. You failed to mention that you thought the tub too hot for your infant and toddler. WHO PUTS INFANTS AND TODDLERS IN HOT TUBS? Even still Pam had the temp turned down for you. Coral Reef would have been a fine option for you. You paid $1360 per night for Villa More and Coral Reef rents for $3400 per night. You had that option available to you. Rum Point/Cayman Kai is the second most popular part of the island to 7 mile beach - as testified by thousands of reviews on all booking sites. The island is only 22 miles wide - you are never an hour away from anything at Villa Mora. West Bay is a cliff side of the island - guarantee you would have complaints there. It is also the hotspot for petty crime on the island. Google it! You were simply looking for a 7 mile beach vacation at an off-7 mile beach price. Sorry you were disappointed.

beautiful home--the view can't be beat

  • 4 of 5

This house is great for large family vacations, with several separate sleeping areas so everyone has personal space, and large comfortable living areas with beautiful views. It's in a very quiet area, feels like you are in a little paradise garden all your own, and there are no hordes of tourists around, which we loved.

However, you can't swim in the sea in front of the house, so you'll have to load everyone and coolers, beach umbrellas etc into the car and go somewhere else if you want to swim or snorkel in the sea. Not a huge problem, just something to plan for. We enjoyed the large swimming pool at the house, as well as going to Smith's Barcadere and Governor's Beach during our stay.

Car: recommended

While Grand Cayman is only 22 miles wide; some guests prefer to be closer to Georgetown and 7 Mile Beach for day trips. 6-BR Villa Mora is only 5 minutes from Georgetown and the beaches on the west coast of the island. The villa enjoys a sandy beach area; however guests need to be mindful that this is a marine area and the water and water's edge will require hard-soled pool shoes for sure. The south of the island usually enjoys a pleasant gentle breeze that keeps any insects at bay and obviates the need for a screened porch.
