traveler reviews for this cayman islands villa rental

family birthday celebration

Review submitted: May 28, 2012   Date of arrival: May 12, 2012

The castle was great UNTIL it rained. Our family rented the castle & guesthouse. We were in the guesthouse & on our last day water poured in thru the windows & water leaked from the ceiling fan in the center of the room. We spent our last day in Cayman cleaning up large amounts of water dripping from the ceiling fan, kitchen & windows. I would NOT recommend anyone staying there unless this is rectified. We were not told that the place leaked before booking the house. If we knew about the leaks, we may have chosen to stay somewhere else

Owners response: This large family stayed for two weeks...and enjoyed great weather until day #9 when the heavens opened (tropical storm Beryl formed over top of Grand Cayman). Cayman had record rainfall of 13" in 2 days(!!) and it rained sideways..the schools closed and government buildings shut down. The Castle & Guesthouse are in east end and the rain & wind came from the east..so it was sideways against the sliding doors and windows and leaked under the sliders-- the guests used towels to soak up rainwater--and we sent out maids to do the towels for them. We also had a roof drain blocked which caused a ceiling leak--so our roofer and contractor went over and unplugged that clog..so the kitchen roof stopped leaking. We also caulked the doors...It was just a rotten final 5 nights in Cayman for this family...so I offered to send them to the Lighthouse Restaurant for dinner ($1,000 limit) even though the second week I discounted for them almost 30%. They didn't accept the offer...and only after they left the island, posted this abysmal review of the house (1 star?) AND demanded a refund. I did what I could do for them while on island and offered a nice dinner as a kind gesture of condolence for the weather. There is just no way to please everyone. I am sure they will want to submit more negative reviews. Please read the 5 years of good reviews and understand that some people can never be happy when the weather turns bad like it did. 13" of rain is almost half the annual rainfall for the east end historically!!

CORRECTIVE ACTION: I flew down as soon as they left..hired a roofer and contractor and completely removed the second floor roof and re-sloped the decking, installed a new membrane and drains...we also siliconed around the sliding glass doors--but in a 30mph 1"/hr sideways rainstorm...sliding door tracks will spill over...I am glad that we only have 1-2 of these storms a year.

Cayman Castle

Review submitted: September 12, 2011   Date of arrival: March 14, 2009

The stay at the "Castle" was outstanding. (We rented the castle and guesthouse) It was March of 2009 and it was our chance to bring family and friends together in one great location. Our kids; grandchildren and friends enjoyed the spacious accommodations that allowed all of us the opportunity for both privacy and socialization. The rooms were comfortable and the location great for water sports (swimming (ocean and heated pool), kayaking, snorkeling and kite surfing!) We have been renting in the Caribbean since 2002 and without question Jim offers the most personalized of services. PS: My grandson, now nine, has a goal to one day buy the castle, top that for a recommendation! Bill from Massachusetts

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

COULDN'T BE CALMER / COOLER THAN AT THE CASTLE!!!

Review submitted: September 9, 2011   Date of arrival: November 1, 2008

I spent my honeymoon at the Castle and Guest House in 2008 (Hurricane Paloma) ...we had all ages and mobilities of folks staying - the week was ideal - so easy for an 89 year old to enjoy ... and safe for the little ones .... Hurricane (Cat 3+) did not even touch us - round castle and watertight ... amazing ... The ad understates the experience you will have - The exclusive location of this heaven keeps us coming back (5 trips so far) ... the staff at the dive place next door are incredibly helpful - nice to be able to walk there! and to Vivine's Kitchen!! And some of the best snorkeling is a swim from the personal dock - Also, close to Rum Point, and Kaibo - wonderful wonderful vacation spot - all the amenities with the requisite 'turn off button' from crazy East Coast lives .... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway
