5 stars for a great retreat, perfect for a family of four away from the cars and bustle of life! The house was well equipped, no issues at all while we were there and would very much recommend it to others. The pool was great - it is small but we had a blast and enjoyed the canoes in the sea as well.
Some lovely restaurants in easy driving distance, a car is a must however if you want to explore.
1 week was not long enough and we would be happy to come again for longer.
Thanks for a great location,
The Phillips family
We found this property exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, well stocked with everything you might need, comfortable, and to have the pool and ocean right outside the door is my idea of paradise. We also found several nice restaurants in the area and spent a day at Rum Point where we took a boat ride out to swim with the stingrays! For anyone looking for a relaxing beach vacation.......look no further. A very good value for the money!
The description of this villa was perfect ! Immaculate and well stocked with every conceivable " need" thought of in advance . I almost don't want to say how truly perfect it was, because I plan on coming every year , and I don't want it booked solid !!! Perfect for a fun girls trip , I can also see a family , or honeymooners loving it ! Private, quiet , peaceful , we listened to the ocean , had lunch poolside , and coffee on the porch every morning . The weather was warm , but gorgeous ,and honestly kept our bathing suits on all day until we went to dinner at night . A huge plus, we were able to do laundry , so we could pack light !! Right on the counter when we arrived was a huge stack of pamphlets with things to do , restaurants , codes for wifi .. Everything ! The front door had a numbered keyless entry , so when we went galavanting across the island , no worries of remembering the key ! We go on a girls trip every year , only one of us had been to the Caymans before, so what a wonderful surprise for the rest of us !!! It was home away from home , easy to stay at and for the four of us , we will now make this our annual girls trip ! The photos are accurate , add the sound of the ocean , gorgeous sunshine , and happy people .. You've got the whole picture ! I miss it , as I write this .. Can't wait to get back !!!!!
The villa was very nice for the money. The bed was confortable but the wicker furniture, which was fine for the rest of the house, was not so comfortable in the living/TV room. I was disappointed that the back yard and pool area which appears very private on the villa pictures and Google earth really isn't since another house (appears new) is right next to the pool without sufficient vegetation or fence to provide privacy. Lukily for us noone appeared to be staying at that house during our stay.
Tghe managementg company was a mixed bag: the pre-trip service and instructions was great. Once we got on the island service was not very good. The house itself had no instructions upon arrival so we had to dig for the wireless password. The big frustration came when I had a question on Friday at 2:30p and the "villa manager" who was my only direct contact could not be reached at the only phone number they gave me (disconnected or something). After finding the main office number online and leaving several messages I finally reached someone who couldn't answer my question, gave me another number and even suggested I drive to my villa manager's office to track her down. I called the other number, left her a message and never heard from anyone the rest of my stay. We had a great, relaxing time despite some of these issues.
With a central location on the island…the homes in Old Man Bay offer perhaps the best shore diving and snorkeling on the entire island. The beaches are mostly sand, but also can be pebbly with natural rock formations too. Either way, with the varied marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The beaches here offer great seashell collecting and turtle sightings in summer!
Old Man Bay is only 5 minutes from (2) large resorts in the east end (www.morritts.com and www.thereef.com ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a Coffee/pastry shop!). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. You are also only 5-10 minutes to the best SCUBA diving operations/dive sites on the entire island. www.oceanfrontiers.com and www.tortugadivers.com are two of the best. About 15 minutes to the west of Old Man Bay is the famous Rum Point Club…with watersports, restaurant, bar, gift shop, grill and a barefoot beach with table service. Here is where the catamaran departs for stingray sandbar/snorkeling tours.
