Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time and your place is wonderful! Laurie: love your decor and obviously you have a lot of artistic talent. We found your place to be very comfortable and just perfect.



Among our highlights were three trips: a jet-ski Safari which included snorkeling; sail to sting ray city with snorkeling and a sunset sail. The kids loved to snorkel. We met many of your neighbors (Bob, Cindy, Julie, Nicole and I am blanking on other names). They were all lovely! We followed many of your recommendations and they were perfect. Some of our best meals were from the restaurant down the road (Over the Edge?) and we also had a fabulous (a bit pricy) meal from a restaurant next to Calypso Grill (on the bay side but at the end of seven mile beach and close to cemetery reef) the restaurant we wanted was closed and this was next door (I think it was called Harbour _______?). It was amazing and we recommend it. Hurley's was better than Foster's but Fosters was just fine for most items. We usually ate one meal out and one in and it varied from lunch to dinner. We found the condo and rum point area to be our favorite area on the island as we prefer a less crowded and touristy area. We also recommend the Botanical Gardens as we were pleasantly surprised by the floral garden and other aspects of the gardens. We really fell in love with Grand Cayman and can't wait to return. I would love to rent from you again--and for a future family trip/reunion. We found your place just incredible- very clean, comfortable and beautiful. The location is fabulous!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a real find! The condo was immaculate and we were welcomed by Hibiscus blossoms everywhere around the condo. The rental was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed, coffeepot and blender too. There is satellite TV and internet at the condo. The lanai is wonderful. This particular condo has the best of both, you can sit on your deck and see the ocean and the pool, no need to choose. The nearby pub, literally a short walk next door, was wonderful, local friendly people with good foot at a reasonable price. We snorkled right off the beach in front of the condo, it is very shallow so you have to go a long a way out but WOW, we saw a huge turtle!. Rum Point beach is great, gotta go there. There is a washer and dryer at the condo too. Literally all you'll need for this trip is two swimsuits, one pair of shorts, two shirts and a sundress. Also bring lots of sunscreen and apply often as the salt water washes it off faster than just the pool. The condo also has floaties and noodles for the pool and lots of beach towels, yeah. They have a wonderful place here and you'll be glad you chose their condo. I would definitely stay here again I only hope it doesn't take another 18 years to come back. Remember when you go that everything is done on "island time" so relax, breathe, slow down, enjoy and do at least one over-the-top thing a day.

As a side note here are some things travelers should know that might be helpful before you go; sometimes its cheaper to eat out than go to the grocery store, it just depends. If you can, take one suitcase full of food, snacks mostly it will save a bunch. Talk to the locals they know where great snorkle spots are. Stingray City is a must. The Atlantis Submarine was cool. Swimming with the horses was the highlight for my daughter. Scuba diving was great too.

Car is a definite must.

Stay as long as you can and do all that you can, you'll love it here.

Wonderful week in Grand Cayman.

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Laurelei. Without a doubt our favorite activity was opening up the windows, turning on the ceiling fans and enjoying the wonderful sea breezes and ocean views while eating on the lanai. Our favorite eating out meals were enjoying the fresh catch of the day at Over the Edge at Old Man Bay, and the Lion Fish Tacos at Eagle Rays in the East End. Favorite drinks were the Mudslides at Rum Point. The condominium grill was very convenient to the unit and made grilling easy. The pool was great. The local soaps in the bathrooms from Bubbles were a luxurious treat and the furniture in the unit was lovely. The only time we went into the seven mile beach area was on our return trip to the airport and we were so happy that we stayed away from all the traffic and crowds there during our visit. Our only disappointment and not related to the condo itself was the flotsam that washes up on the beach. The beach right in front of the condo was kept clean and raked for the most part but the flip flops, plastic bottles and such we saw while walking in either direction from the unit were sad to see. All in all though we had a fantastic trip. P.S. Make sure you do the glass-bottom boat tour from the guys at Rum Point to swim with the sting-rays and snorkel. It's the best group to go with!

True Gem!

Just returned from our family vacation at the Laurelei! The condo was accurately represented on the vrbo description. The accommodations were very comfortable, clean and offered all the comforts of home including plenty of nice beach towels.

A special thank you to Laurie! She was not only easy to work with on securing our preferred dates, but provided an entire 'packet' of information to help make our stay the best possible. This included places to eat, tips for maximizing our budget on an expensive island, 'must see' sights and activities! We used this information every day and were thankful to have it!

Laurelei is A1

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from an incredible week at the Laurelei. We have rented several condos over the years and this was one of the best!! Extremely clean, comfortable and quiet. If you want a nice relaxing vacation this is the place.

You will definitely need a car. Restaurants are not far but not within walking distance. The pub next door is no longer open so Rum Point (great fish and chips) or Over The Edge (Mahi Mahi) are the nearest places to eat. Kurt's Corner is a little farther down the road but worth it.

Cayman Kai is a nearby public beach between the condo and Rum Point that has some good snorkeling to the West of the beach entrance. We went there twice and had the place to ourselves. If you need snorkel gear, get it from Red Sail Sports at Rum Point. They made us a great deal for the week. Other "must sees" are Star Fish Point and Stingray City.

And finally, thanks to Laurie. This was a last minute rental and she worked with us to make sure everything was ready to go on a very short notice.

We hope to return soon.

We loved staying at this condo for our first vacation to Grand Cayman! We wanted to be one the less commercial side of the island and are glad we booked this condo as it was spring break/Easter week. The beach still felt secluded and most days we had the pool to ourselves. There was a family next door with daughters the same age as ours and the kids had a blast playing in the pool, making sandcastles and playing in the landscaped area where we could keep an eye on them easily while relaxing ourselves. The views from our condo were great! Blue ocean from every window. I was impressed at how clean the condo was upon arrival, and I am picky. The kitchen was very well stocked. The owners gave us great info/tips before arrival which were much appreciated. Rum Point was perfect for our family and Stingray City via Red Sail Sports was great. The only trick was to find fresh seafood on this side of the island. We found that Tukka and restaurant at Rum Point would sell us fresh raw fish that could grill at home. Eating out was great as well, loved Kaibo downstairs restaurant- wonderful atmosphere! Miss it already.

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5
What a glorious week in paradise. The condo was all that it was advertised as being. I have stayed on Seven Mile Beach before and much prefer the North Side now after staying here. The condo was great, could hear the ocean at night, the pool was fabulous and we went to Rum Point for water sports activities which was 5 minutes away. Both my son, his now fiance, and myself had a wonderful week. We didn't want to leave. I will definitely try and stay here when I return and my son and his fiance are definitely interested in returning to this condo and location. Laurie was great to deal with. We used McCauley's for our car at Laurie's recommendation and that was great as well. Perfect relaxining vacation!!!
