Wonderful, private, ocean-front Villa with all amenities = A piece of Heaven on hearth.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible ocean front Villa with four suites. Spacious and well equipped for large groups. Pristine outdoors with heated pool & jacuzzi, bar, gazebo and beach front - not to leave the premises for an entire week. Our hosts, Yvonne, was super nice, kind, and accommodating. She kept the house and premises impeccable and went above and beyond. She greeted us with a fabulous home-made chocolate cake, set up the Christmas decor and was very attentive to any need or questions we had. THANK YOU YVONNE. !!!

We got treated to a wonderful vacation, thank you Tessie and Charlie (Grandma & Pa).

This is a great place. Our two kids had a blast in the pool and “Cajuzzi”!

Thank you.

In gratitude for your care and best wishes.

19th – 26th November, 2016 4 Adults Austin, TX

We had hyped ourselves up on Villa Zara for months, and somehow it still exceeded our expectations! The house is stunning, the pool area and ocean view/access is sublime and Yvonne and Phil took extremely good care of us and the place. They had recommendations for anything and everything and were even sweet enough to bake me a cake for my birthday. The location of the house was ideal for us – away from the crowds but still close enough to Rum Point, Kaibo Beach, the East End and other places of interest. Probably the most memorable vacation anybody in our group has ever had, and Villa Zara really helped put it over the top.

30th July - 6th August, 2016. 7 Adults. Richmond, VA and Atlanta, GA, USA

We have travelled to many places around the world - but Villa Zara ranks at the top. The house is beautiful, the pool is perfect and the on-premise staff made it our best vacation ever.

We visited 7-Mile beach one day - it's one of the top rated beaches in the world. We rented seadoos there - great water.

We frequented Rum Point for snorkelling, used Red Sail Tours with a boat that took us to StingrayCity and Starfish point. Very fun. Also did the Bio-luminescent tour of the bay in kayaks. Went to Turtle Farm and the obligatory Tortuga Rum Cake Factory. Tukka is a nice place for dinner. Rode the bikes to Rum Point several times. Perfectly Pampered Cayman came to the villa so we could all have Swedish or deep tissue massages.

We did a lot but always could not wait to get back "Home" to this House!

Loved it here and hated to leave!!

21/8/2010 – 28/8/2010 New Jersey, USA We have travelled to many islands and have stayed at some of the finest resorts. Our Stay here at Villa Zara has been exceptional. We fell in love with the island itself because of the wonderful people, the incredible beauty of the island, and the amazing food. The Villa itself exceeded all of our expectations, and Yvonne and Phil made our stay seamless. We vow to return and make this our annual family vacation destination.

Thanks for everything!!

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 on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing breeze (trade winds) from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch. The big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. ( ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina ( Click map on our home page. Lastly…we have (2) large resorts in the east end ( and ) 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. and offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
