Stayed at the home of the Ritch’s this year while visiting Grand Cayman. The experience was wonderful. Close to restaurants, shopping areas and beaches.

The home itself was indeed very comfortable and inviting. The porch and back garden were my favorites especially in the early morning.



Would recommend it highly for a great vacation destination.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Ritch residence is exactly as described on the website and in the pictures. All reviews are accurate. Our family of 13 (7 adults and 6 children) stayed almost a week and the house was spacious enough and comfortable for everyone. It is indeed in a convenient location close to a grocery store, small local restaurants, and the beach! We rented cars to explore the island freely and went on several excursions ( stingrays- starfish-swimming with dolphins, turtles - and snorkeling). I can't say we will be back because we want to visit other Carribbean islands, but if we had to come back to Grand Cayman, we'd probably book there again! Nikki, our host, was very helpful and always available if we needed anything. Thanks for everything, Nikki!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful comments Isabelle. You and your family were a delight to have as guests in my house. I’m happy to hear that you found the house comfortable and spacious enough for everyone. Thank you for leaving the house so clean and in order. My son Nicholas had a wonderful time playing with Logan and is already asking when he’s coming back! So glad we got to meet you all and can now call you friends! I hope that you return to our little island real soon. Thanks again for choosing my house as your Cayman home away from home! Take care Nikki

Comfortable, Spacious, Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 really enjoyed this accommodation during our visit. We were all comfortable in this clean and spacious environment. We felt at home and the children were very happy with the entertainment room where they relaxed after long hours at the squash courts.

Nicole was very pleasant and made us feel welcome. The location was very convenient as well being a stone's throw away from the grocery store and very accessible to public transport.

Although the property is situated close to the main road with traffic, once inside it was as though you were miles away from it all.

Thanks again for your hospitality Nicole.

Awesome, Cozy, and Clean House in a Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

Nikki was a wonderful host. She welcomed us with her home made Tres Leches cake that melted our hearts on the first night. Nikki was extremely friendly and helpful. The house listings was very accurate, just like the pictures depicted. All 11 of us felt the house was very spacious. The property was advantageously situated with access to many convenient things - public beaches, local restaurants, Foster grocery store within walking distance and then Seven Mile Beach entertainment within such a short drive. Her information and recommendations were spot on for everything we asked for. Furthermore, she was very accommodating when we asked for the Karaoke system. When we discovered our nephew had to extend his stay for one more night, Nikki quickly made the arrangement to let him stay. We felt she extended herself to ensure our vacation went fantastic. We also like the fact that the house has two dishwashers and two sets of washer and dryers - those made it very convenient for a large group like ours to keep things organized and tidy. We had a wonderful vacation at Nikki's place and would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a house to stay in Cayman.

BIG BEAUTIFUL AND COZY HOUSE NEAR ALL AMENITIES!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family who recently stayed in this house in April 2016. We were greeted when we arrived at the house and had access to Nicole (owner) day and night if we were to need anything (not that we did need anything but it sure is nice to know someone would be there asap). Nicole and her daughter Jasmine are the nicest people we have met and are very sociable and accomodating! We loved having the visits with them, comparing the cultural aspects. The house was closely situated to all amenities such as the beach (less than 5 min walk) and food market (about 1 min walk across the street). The 5 bedroom house is equipped with all that is needed - including high end appliances. As we are a big family, I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 sets of washer and dryers...yup - 2 sets!!!! The kitchen also has 2 dishwashers - yup, 2!!!! Let's talk about the beaches: the closest beach is approx. a 5 minute walk to Cemetery Beach where you will find the most pristine waters, finest sand and tropical breeze....lots of beach combing to do for little treasures! The local food market called "Foster's Food Fair IGA" is located right.... across..... the.... street! The store is less than 1 minute walk - right across the street! Its soooo convenient to have a store that close - AMAZING. We initially did not rent a car and cost us about $87 USD for a van taxi to transport us from the airport to the house. We ended up renting a vehicle because we wanted to explore on our own. There are so many details I am leaving out about our stay on the Grand Cayman Island...we will certainly be back to enjoy this lovely home and visit with our "forever friends" Jasmine and Nicole. My dearest Friends: THANK YOU for making our stay an enjoyable one and hope to see you both in the near future xox Kindest regards, Michelle and Tribe

Owner's Response: Your so kind Michelle. We absolutely loved having you stay at our house! Thank you so much for keeping it so clean and inviting us to spend time with you. It always makes me smile to hear my guests enjoying aspects of the house and the neighborhood that we also enjoy. Know that you are always welcome to visit and that you now have friends in Cayman that you can always call on! Thanks again for staying as my guest and my best to everyone. Nikki

Fantastic property and customer service!

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Grand Cayman with two families and a lot of children of various ages. The house worked perfectly for us. Property was listed accurately, was clean, and comfortable. We love the location which was convenient to everything we needed while being a little removed from the busy downtown area. The double washers and dryers are fantastic!

Nicole could not have been more helpful and accommodating for issues related to the house and for general items about our stay. She helped make our trip even better.

We used the local neighborhood beaches and restaurants almost every day and had great experiences at each of them.

We would love to return and stay at the house again. I would recommend to anyone looking to get away from the hotel scene.

Thanks Nicole!

Owner's Response: Wonderful! Thank you so much! You all were awesome. I was happy to see how the kids seemed at home, even baby! LOL Thank you for looking out for the house. I know how challenging it can be with kids. I love the little neighborhood myself; it just has everything! Did you see that new building going up by the grocery store? It's going to be a liquor store and other little shops. So stay tuned to my social page for updates. I hope you guys come back soon! Pirates Week is a blast! Hint hint. Take care and thanks again! Nikki

Wonderful House....and Great Homeowner

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we were hoping for and more.....our plane had so many delays getting there, that when we finally arrived....it was so like coming to a haven. The house was big enough for our group so everyone had their own space to retire to. The location was great, away from the busy downtown but close to everything we needed or wanted. Beaches were within walking distance which was great. Nicole was always available but also gave us our space....was very impressed with her amazing friendliness....and hugs....lol. I would definitely be a regular guest at this house whenever we can return to Cayman. Loved the house, people (met amazing people I can now call friends) , and the Island as a whole. Thank you Nicole for sharing your home with us....I hope to see you again!
