Ocean View Villa offering peace and tranquility.

Ocean View Villa offering peace and tranquility.

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 5, 2014
Detached ocean view villa with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths

Cayman Retreat is a detached family home - one of 10 similar properties that forms 'East End Paradise Villas'. From almost every room there are spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, calming sea breezes and ocean sounds all add to the tranquil sensory delights. A mere 30 steps leads you to a quiet (usually deserted) sandy beach - a beachcombers dream. The calm, reef protected, shallow waters is perfect for snorkeling (keep your eyes open for stingrays and turtles). The less adventurous can relax in or around the 5 cascading pools to the sound of rustling palm tress and falling water.

The Villa is on two levels with; 3 bedrooms (two upstairs with queen size beds and one downstairs with two twin beds). Each bedroom has it's own bathroom, the master bath has a large jacuzzi tub. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room and a further half bathroom.

The kitchen is fully equipped and finished to a high standard with stove, dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave.There is a laundry room with a washer and drier.

There is ample parking and a spacious private patio and balcony.

Cayman Retreat is located in the East End of Grand Cayman approximately a 30 minute drive from the airport and George Town. This part of the island is truly beautiful, the real Caribbean just as you imagine it to be with great beaches and many local spots to enjoy. It is more relaxed than the popular tourist destination of 7 mile beach and only a short drive from great spots such as Rum Point and Kaibo. Compass Point, a premier dive resort, is 5 minutes away, Queen Elizabeth Botanic Park, the Mastic Trail (a great guided walk through the interior of the island) and several great restaurants and grocery stores are all within a 10 minute drive. East End is the real Caribbean in every sense, unspoiled deserted beaches, friendly local people, fewer tourists and a chance to kick back and enjoy life as it is supposed to be lived.

Grand Cayman is one of the top scuba diving destinations in the world but has much more to offer if you are not a diver. Enjoy being right there in the water with the stingrays at Stingray city, take a trip underwater in the Atlantis submarine, try kite boarding or take an island tour in a helicopter, this is just a tiny sample of the many attractions that make Grand Cayman one of the most popular vacation spots in the Caribbean. It is a wealthy island with great shopping, healthcare and education. It is safe with a very low crime rate and driving is easy with a good choice of rental car companies.

About the Owner

We are a mature, professional couple who simply love the Carribean lifestyle. We moved to Grand Cayman 4 years ago and purchased 'Cayman Retreat' as our second property, we enjoy occasional weekends in the house and also rent it out as a vacation property. We enjoy golf (there are 2 courses in Grand Cayman), good food and wine (there are many great restaurants on the island) and simply relaxing on any one of the many spectacular beaches Grand Cayman has to offer. Because we live on island we are able to offer a personal service and we will endeavor to make your stay as perfect as we possibly can. If you arrive on a Sunday and the grocery stores are closed, or if you just want to kick right in to relaxation mode, no problem, just send us a grocery list ahead of time and we will have it all waiting for you.

Property Has Issues

  • 2 of 5
This property is for sale which may account for the problems we encountered. First, the owners could not be reached for questions by email after renting because my emails went to their junk folder. The owners never contacted us while at the property and we did not receive a welcome gift. The only 'gifts' we received was the brown water that ran into the tub in the master bedroom and a dryer that took an extremely long time to dry clothes. The pool area was not lit after dark and leaves were plentiful in the pools. The pool area and pools needed major cleaning. On our third day, I called the owners about these problems and a man did clean the pools but did not repair the lighting. In order to get the water and dryer problems fixed, I was told I needed to be there when a repairman came to do the work. I chose not to spend my vacation time waiting on a repairman so the problems were not fixed while we were there. As far as 'no hidden fees'? The renter is allowed $25 worth of electricity a day and a charge is added at checkout if you exceed that amount. I do not recommend this property! I do recommend the island. The people are friendly and the water and weather is outstanding! Rum Point was my favorite spot. As they say on the island......relax, you're on cayman time :)

Owner's Response: This response is directed to future guests not the guest that posted the review. This is recommended practice by VRBO. We feel saddened that these guests were not satisfied and will address each concern. The property is no longer listed, the for sale signs have simply not yet been removed by the agent. We received 10 emails from this guest and had one telephone conversation before arrival, all emails were answered and none to my knowledge went to our junk mail. The welcome gift was handmade local soaps for each guest and a selection of beverages; this gift varies with each reservation. The main concern was the brown water and the tumble drier, for this we apologize profusely but the circumstances require some clarification. A voice message was left by the guests at 10.30pm; we returned the call before 8am the following day. We asked when they would be home because we make it a practice to never enter our villa without the guests being there. This is for security reasons and also out of respect, our villa is your home for the duration of the rental period. This was explained in full and the guests requested that we attend with repairmen between 3pm and 4pm that same day. Although a rental car was in the driveway no one appeared to be home and we did not enter the property. We called the guests from the property; there were 3 further calls and 2 emails with no response. The blocked tumble drier vent was cleared from the outside. The brown water from the jets in the Jacuzzi tub is common if the tub has not been used for some time. We did not in the past make it a practice to fill the tub and switch on the jets between guests but we will certainly do that now. The leaves in the pool are somewhat inevitable with the surrounding lush tropical vegetation; they are cleaned regularly but not several times a day as they might be in a hotel. A pole and net is available. We were unaware of the lighting problem and grateful to be told, we have reported this to the management company. There are no hidden fees! The electricity allowance is clearly stated in the rental contract and is viewed and accepted by the guests upon booking with VRBO. Only one set of guests have exceeded this in over 2 years, it is simply to encourage sustainability. We only wish that these guests had responded to our attempts to contact them while in the villa, these problems could then have been addressed in full before their vacation ended. We are however glad they enjoyed our beautiful island.

Beautiful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Cayman Retreat truly was a wonderful place to stay! I think my 5 year old God Daughter said it best when we stepped out of the villa to head for the airport: "I'm going to miss this world!" I traveled with a group of 7 adults, 1 child and a baby and the villa accommodated us beautiful. The owner, Kerry, was kind and courteous. She checked in with us while were at the Villa and provided a pack and play for the baby and a small bed for the 5 year old. The kitchen had everything you could ever want, and the three bathrooms made our lives so much easier. The pool was huge and it felt like we practically had it to ourselves. We especially liked that the kids could hang out in the smaller pool while the "swimmers" could be in the deeper pool and yet, we were not cut off from each other. We spent quite a few nights taking late night dips. The closet even had a few beach balls and donuts for the kids to use in the pool and an umbrella that we took with us to 7-mile beach.


The beach just outside the villa is not the best and we didn't spend any time there outside of taking a few pictures and watching the sun rise. Definitely go to Rum Point and 7-mile for a great beach experience.

The villa is located at East End which is further away from GeorgeTown and 7 Mile Beach, but it isn't so far away to be a problem. I would say by car you're a 30-40 minutes away from either location. Rum Point also has a beautiful beach and great restaurants just off the beach area. You can also catch Red Sails Boating there to go out and see the Stingrays which is a must! The snorkeling and walking with the Stingrays was well worth the money and an experience I will NEVER forget. If you go, try to take a waterproof camera or get a Waterproof case for your phone so you can take pictures. There are also options to go out there on boats where they take professional pictures but at the time we didn't know what to expect so we skipped it.

If you're staying here please try the food at Tukka! It was by far our favorite restaurant during our stay (aside from the local places off the beaches). We actually went there to watch the world cup, which was a lot of fun.

Overall, this was a WONDERFUL experience! Please have no reservations about the villa or the owners! this was truly a restful and memorable vacation!

If we every decide the head back to the Cayman, I would not hesitate to stay at Cayman Retreat again.

Relaxing time for all.

  • 4 of 5
We were three couples looking for a new adventure to kick off our new retirement phase of life. It was perfect. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The villa was located near some of the best restaurants on the island and we experienced many of them. The amenities of the villa were perfect for us and the right amount of space for three couples. We found the owners very helpful prior to our arrival and during our stay. It was nice knowing they were living on the island as well. Although it was drive from the airport we loved that as we were not in the crowds of the cruise ships and it mad our three week stay much more relaxing. It was close to many of the historical areas we enjoyed and the owners had done a great job of having many of the books and activity opportunities at the villa for us to use. The internet was exceptional which pleased all of us since we were all able to Skype and Face time. Can't go wrong with this choice.

Great Villa!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Cayman Retreat. The villa was perfect, clean and convenient. We were a short and beautiful drive away from everything we needed whether it be 7 mile beach, the grocery, Scuba diving or Rum Point. I would highly recommend this villa to our friends and family and will stay again on our next trip. Thanks Kerry for for all your attention and for allowing us to enjoy your villa.

Amenities

From the Owner

Cayman Retreat is calming to the senses in every way. Wake up in the morning and see the ocean without even getting out of bed, listen to the sounds of the waves or the waterfalls that form part of the cascading pools and enjoy the fact that there are water views from every room. Leave the windows open in the winter months when air conditioning is not necessary and enjoy the wonderful breezes the property attracts, breathe in the scents of the sea. The villa feels relaxed and is soothing to the senses, the interior is contemporary Caribbean, the colors are that of the seashore, aqua, coral, blue and green with local art work adding to the ambiance.
