Wonderful Place for a Family or Group

  • 4 of 5

We came down to Grand Cayman for the first time with our family (kids all 20+), parents, sister and a few significant others. I did lots of research to try and find the right place on the island, and the right house. The area up by Rum Point is so nice and away from the resort strip that makes up 7 mile beach. You don't have to worry about the cruise ship crowds on this part of the island.

The house was on a nice spot on the beach with neighboring houses on one side (there was an empty lot on the other side with trash that it would have been nice to have someone clean up). The pool being on the beach side of the house was great so even when you were swimming in the pool you had the ocean in front of you. It was a little windy but the breeze actually kept it cool enough to be outside all the time. You do need water shoes or snorkel gear if you are going to go out more than 10-20 yards in the ocean because there are coral and other things that could spoil your trip if you step on them bare footed, but if you need a white sandy beach Rum Point and Starfish beach are only a couple of miles away, and there is no wind on the part of the point. The lack of wind was actually a little stifling so we are glad we had it most days.

This house is as it looks in the pictures except the living room picture is old and doesn't show the outside patio/Tiki bar expansion through the windows that you see in other shots. The TV outside at the Tiki bar doesn't work but who needs outside TV at the beach. There is a kegorator and wine refrigerator at the outside bar. We spent most days doing short day trips to other beaches to snorkel or sight see, then would come back to the house for a relaxing late afternoon swim and beach before grilling out for dinner. Our bed was in bad shape and dipped to the middle which I didn't like, but everyone else said theirs was good. I would certainly recommend this house as a place for a big family or group of friends. 5 master suites all with their own bathrooms, and a pool right on the beach is pretty nice! Not sure why there have not been more recent reviews, people where there right before us also.

Amazing Vacation and Home

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Cayman Island with a group of friends (mostly couples) and had the most amazing time. The home is beautiful and the location is perfect. The pictures here are accurate but somehow they still don't capture the size and beauty of the house. The price of the rental cannot be beat, we definitely got our money's worth! The house has everything you need and there was no reason to leave it with the ocean view, sandy beach, and pool. It is close to Rum Point so you can take advantage of the water sports. We will definitely be back and will recommend to anyone who asks!!

Dream Vacation in February

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped for and more!! The bedrooms were exceptional: large and perfect for 5 couples, furnitures quality was very nice, decorating was perfect for our taste and would love this at home.

We had to really look to find homes with no twin beds. This was perfect.

The furnishings and all the ammenities were just like the pictures.

I would vacation here again, no questions.

Jim was wonderful to work with!

I strongly suggest using the grocery shopping service, prior to your arrival. It was worth it and made our home vacation ready the minute we walked in.

Reef Romance - A Great Get-away for families

  • 5 of 5

The place was great for a family like ours. We had a total of 9 and the arrangement of the house was perfect. The place was clean and we really enjoyed the pool. There was a glitch with the air conditioning which was fixed within hours, which was very impressive. We would highly recommend it.

reef romance was as beautiful as described. Excellent condition. would recommend to friends.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Reef Romance Nov. 2010. All 5 couples loved it. We would go again. The beach was great/snorkeling was good. Rum point was under construction so should be better next time. we loved staying on this side of th island rather than 7 mile beach. It was very private and quiet. 7 mile beach gets hectic at times.

We went to the other side and toured etc - ate at the Light house - very good. If you want to have a vacation that is relaxing - stress free stay at Reef Romance. We all have hight stress jobs and it was great to just hang out!!

WOW! What a great place.

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week this summer at the Reef Romance. What a awesome house. Five master bedrooms with a nice bath in each room. Went with four couples and we were lucky enough to get the downstairs master, hugh room and bath with a jacuzzi tub for two and a large separate shower. The pictures on the website are not close to how wonderful this house is. Spectacular view from the house of the pool, then the huge private beach, then the majestic ocean. Walked down the street (or beach if you wanted) to a local bar/restaurant and had a blast. Rum Point, about a mile away, had the most incredible sunset. Don't forget to swin with the Sting Rays, one of the Cayman's best tourist event. If your looking for a house with three, four or five bedrooms, this is the one. Great for multiple couples or a large family. I hope we get a chance to go back soon!

Oceanfront
Car: recommended

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. (www.rumpointclub.com ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the www.redsailcayman.com 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina (www.kaibo.ky) Click map on our home page. Lastly…we have (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. www.tortugadivers.com and www.whitesandwatersports.com offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
