Best vacation ever!
Our family enjoyed this home so much. From the amazing view, comfortable bedrooms, amazing family area and well stocked kitchen. The kids favorite was the pool. The adults favorites were the amazing sunrise & sunset!
We can’t wait to go back again.
We loved it.
Beautiful area. Beautiful house.
Wonderful place to celebrate my retirement with our family of 15!
Crystal Blue is a beautiful home in the quiet East End on the Northern Coast of Grand Cayman. The grounds are well kept and the view is amazing! The location is great for enjoying Rum Point Beach, Star Fish Beach, Morritt's Resort Beach all within a short drive. The layout of the seven bedrooms was perfect for our family as the teenagers slept on one side and could sleep late and the "littles" awoke early and could play without disturbing them. Lots of seating in the dining area and also outside on the pool deck. We enjoyed three meals cooked by Chef Stephanie. The Cayman style fish, barbecued chicken, jerk chicken, rice and beans, mac and cheese, cornbread were all yummy. The kitchen is very functional but could use an update. Roland, the caretaker/manager was very attentive and had the bedroom air conditioner fixed in a timely manner. Scott Naurath was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us helpful information before our arrival. He scheduled a charter boat for us with Captain George to Stingray City. Captain George was awesome and this was a highlight of the week for many. The house was very clean. Having a laundry available was great. Also appreciated the extra beach towels and pool toys that were available to us.
We traveled from Caifornia, New York and Pennsylvania and had a WONDERFUL vacation together. Thank you for sharing your home with our family. We will recommend Crystal Blue to our friends looking for a beautiful home to rent on Grand Cayman.
Thank you all for your kind words. We love hearing stories like yours! Please come back soon!

Undeniable, a wonderful, peaceful piece of Heaven!
Crystal Blue’s house is more than one could expect or ask for; warm and very welcoming right from the gate and throughout the property.
The exterior of the property was well groomed and the view was picturesque; as we spent a lot of time relaxing and taking in the view.
The interior of the property is beautiful and beautifully decorated; we definitely utilized the kitchen which was well layout and met all of our needs.
Undeniable... a wonderful, peaceful piece of heaven! Blue sky, warm sun, cooling breezes and a picture perfect ocean view, I would come back in a heartbeat and recommend Crystal Blue to others as a prim vacation location for large to medium size groups.
My only subjection would be to include a tour package/transportation for those of us who like to be chauffeured around while exploring the Island.
We were very fortunate to meet a wonderful tour company driver name Leonardo Henry; he was very knowledgeable of the Island and it's history. Leonardo introduced us to several local restaurants Vivian Kitchen, Over the Edge, Heritage Kitchen and Grand Old House Cayman, the food was fantastic service was great. We also went to the Local fish Market and he assisted us with selecting a local for the Island that was the fresh catch of the day; what a way to show absolute hospitality to fourteen ladies on the Island.
Stunning home, fantastic view!
The trip was Amazing. The accommodations, Awesome. Calypso Blue was spectacular with its decor; color scheme; each bedroom with its own unique design and color combination which gave each room their own identity. Our guide and transportation was impeccable. Mr Pouchie is to be comenmened on how he made sure we were accommodated in a very loving and caring way. The staff at Grand Cayman Villas was responsive and helpful every step of the way. We will return.
Privacy and Beauty...Crystal Blue is awesome!
This home and its location were absolutely perfect for our family. Our family of eight, which included two children, really appreciated the layout of this absolutely stunning home on the ocean, which provided privacy, and luxury, for all of us. The house is just as described, with huge windows facing the ocean. The main living area could host a wonderful party but, the open concept kitchen, dining room and family room with a walk out to the large patio and pool area, was where we congregated the most, cooking meals, talking, reading, or watching TV (rarely!).
The stone patio and pool got a great deal of use too. We always started the day out there drinking coffee, enjoying the morning breeze off the ocean, and even doing our own workouts! There was lots of space for everything. Both kids and adults enjoyed the pool, and being able to walk down the stone and coral steps to the ocean. Although it was a bit choppy for our youngest, we snorkelled off the steps almost daily. One day, some of our snorkelers even spotted a stingray! We ended our day outside too, often turning off the lights to enjoy the beauty of the stars.
We had two cars which allowed us to go our different ways if we wanted. However, we got the most use out of a Kia SUV from Marshalls, which held all eight of us. From the house, we snorkelled at Morritts and the Reef, ate at Tukka and Bombay Chopsticks restaurants, drove down to Rum point where we took a private boat to Stingray City, courtesy of White Sand Sports, and did the Bioluminescent Kayak tour through Cayman Kayaks. Our divers did two dives with Ocean Frontiers, traveling through underground caves, and exploring the reefs. It was a very pro outfit. My husband and I enjoyed a walk through the Botanic gardens. All of this was within 5-10 minutes of the house.
We did venture to Seven Mile Beach once, for brunch at the Ritz, which was pretty amazing! The beach was lovely, but we all agreed that the cool breezes at our house on the north side were better. We also went up to The west side to visit the Turtle farm. The man-made snorkelling lagoon there was a favourite with the kids.
The friendly property manager tried hard to help us with a faulty pool light, our only disappointment. I'm sure this problem will be addressed for the next visitors.
We would definitely recommend this house and its location. No bugs, cool breezes, beautiful natural surroundings, and an absolutely stunning house made for a wonderful vacation.
The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes along the Queen’s Highway towards East End offer great reef protected snorkeling as well as being only 5 minutes from the best SCUBA operators (Ocean Frontiers and Tortuga Divers) and dive sites on the entire island.
The beach behind Crystal Blue is very private but only has a small sandy area, not for barefoot swimming. It does offer great snorkeling. With the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing trade winds from the east offers an escape from any potential mosquitoes or flying insects.
The east end of the island is where any kite-boarding, wind-surfing, or even surfing is done on Grand Cayman. 5 minutes or less east of Queens Highway are 2 large resorts (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, grocery stores, a liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a coffee/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools and bar service. Tukka, The Italian Kitchen, and The Lighthouse are the closest restaurants. Nearby local spots for lunch include Vivine’s Kitchen, Arlaine’s, and the Pirates Cove.
