Ritch's Residence - Great Vacation Home
Ritch's Residence - Great Vacation Home
My family of 13 stayed at the Ritch’s’s residence located in West Bay Grand Cayman for one week in July 2013. Location was perfect: very close to the beaches and snorkeling areas (highly recommend the Cemetary beach, lots of marine life to see just by snorkeling 200 meters from the beach), major tourist areas such as Gerogetown, Seven Mile Beach, and Camana Bay were just driving distance of only 15-20 minutes the most. The owners (Ritch and Nicole) were very accommodating and treated us like family. We greatly appreciated their hospitality and willingness to help: the owners helped us with our bags since we were already packed in the rental van and even took my mom to go to the fish market to get the fish she wanted to cook for the first night. They were even nice enough to arrange the sting ray city tour for my family, which we highly recommend to try. The sting ray tour included half day activities to the sting ray, lunch at Rum Point, and one snorkeling area for an affordable price. The couple even hung out with us for one day where we BBQ at the beach. The house was definitely big enough to fit 3 sets of family including two couples. The rooms were spacious and plenty to entertain ourselves when not in the mood to step out of the house. The owner maintains a variety of seasonal fruits (coconut, guava, bananas, sweetsop, soursop etc.) and herbal plants in their yard, which we made use almost every day. They even have the aloe vera plant accessible in their yard, which was very useful for sun burn remedy. The supermarket was walking distance and convenient to pick up the general necessities; however, recommend packing the non-refrigerated food and snacks from the states as it can get very pricy if staying longer than one week. Restaurants were also walking distance. Also if not in the mood to cook, Nicole’s mother is famous for her jerk chicken, orders are available Friday and Saturday evenings, just let them know ahead of time. Overall experiences at the Ritch’s residence was great, and highly recommend for a great family vacation, couples get away, group of friends, and for all ages.

Owner response: What a wonderful review, Thank you so much Zalak! The pleasure was all ours! Your wonderful family was our first ever large group and we are happy to say that you were a big ball of fun! Thank you guys so much for taking such good care of the house. As we don't take deposits it matters greatly that our guest are considerate of the work and effort we have put into our home. Thank you also for the great suggestions and we hope to have everything in place for your next trip. Hopefully only a suitcase of clothing will be required! Nicholas said to tell Eyan hello and he can't wait till you guys return. Thank you again for sharing your vacation with us. Warmest regards, Nicole Ritch
Beautiful home and. Owners!!
Beautiful home and. Owners!!
We stayed at this lovely home for two weeks and it was awesome! We were told West Bay is unsafe, but we walked all over in the daytime with not a single issue. The people were all so friendly! They have mini-busses(look like vans) numbered that go up & down the streets and will take you within a certain radius for $2.00 per person. Bus stop is a block away, along with Foster's grocery store and the beach is maybe a 10 minute walk. Everything was new and great in this home! I did suggest they get a few items, such as beach towels, bikes, new cookware, but everything else was there. The owners are such warm and wonderful people! I took care of this home as if it were our home, keeping it clean and using coasters, washing pans by hand, etc. If everyone does this, it not only saves the cost of the upkeep, so the rent charges don't increase. I would stay here in a minute! It is further away from things, but hey, a short bus ride and ypu can be in George Town, Seven Mile Beach, etc. If they are not booked, they will also reduce the rate, which helped make our decision to stay here! Truly a beautiful home! Beach is crystal clear, so bring your snorkeling gear and ENJOY!

Owner response: Thank you for the review Laurie. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We strive to make our guests visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible so your comments and suggestions are invaluable and very much appreciated. I have already purchased your suggested cookware! I'm surprised to hear it took 10 minutes to walk to the beach. I'll have to be sure we give a little map going forward because there is a road to the beach that is closer to the house. My mother was very happy that you enjoyed her jerk chicken and insists on meeting you on your next visit. I'll be sure to post our upgrades on our Facebook page so you'll know what has been done since your last visit. Thank you again and until next time take of yourself! Nicole
Wonderful Family Holiday!
Wonderful Family Holiday!
We recently stayed at the Ritch Residence for our 10 day visit to the Cayman Islands. Nicole and Donna were very helpful during the entire process, from our inital call to learn more about the house until we left for the airport on the last day. The house is large, nicely decorated, has all the amenities we needed and more, and was in a great location. We found that the bus service was great for getting from the house to anywhere we needed to go during our holiday (into Georgetown, further along Seven Mile Beach, Camana Bay, the Turtle Farm) - we would just walk outside the door, wait 1-2 minutes and a bus/minivan would pull over and take us wherever we needed to go for just $2 per adult (free for the kids). It was very convenient to have the grocery store right across the street, and we liked being able to walk down to the beach and stop for a meal at Alfresco's. The house itself was great for our family - we liked the screened in porch and ate all our meals out there, the media room was fun, and the bedrooms and bathrooms were all big, clean and fully set-up. The last thing I'll mention is just how helpful Nicole was in making our stay a success: when we said we had twins that are 1.5 years old, she went out and purchased an additional crib and highchair so we were fully equipped; and she did everything possible to make sure we had what we needed and were comfortable. Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday. We are already planning to come back next year: same time, same place!

Owner response: Thank you Ashley. It was a pleasure having you and your family stay in our home. The back porch has always been my favorite part of the house too. More of a hide-out from the kids to be honest. ;>) We look forward to having you back next year! Nicole

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.

What a summer... The house was perfect in every way, especially that fantastic media room. The boys loved being able to walk to the beach while I enjoyed the peaceful yard. Cayman is such a wonderful place to relax, I cannot wait to return.

Owner response: Thank you for the review Mandy. The media room does seem to be the favorite of the kids. It's a great way to keep them entertained while the adults stroll down to the beach or hide out in the garden! We look forward to your next visit at our home.
Best Vacation Ever!
Best Vacation Ever!
Our family stayed at this home for 1 week and let me tell you the pictures itself do not do it justice!! The property itself was amazing!! The kitchen, living room and theater room were spectacular!! The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable!! Even the surrounding locations of this home was simply unreal. Everything we needed or wanted was a stone throw away. For instance the most beautiful sandy beach was just across the street. Walking distance: * Amazing white sandy beach with beautiful sunsets * Tasty restaurants like Alfresco's and Timbuktu * Great shopping * Supermarket (which was so convenient) Driving distance: * Turtle farm (3 minute drive) * Dolphin Discovery (3 minute drive) * Cemetery beach - best snorkeling on the island!! A must if you snorkel. (1 minute drive) * Hell - (2 minute drive) * Cracked Conch Restaurant - best seafood that you will ever eat (3 minute drive) * Public Beach - (5 minute drive) * Caymana Bay - excellent shopping, movie theater, dining (7 minute drive) This was by far the best vacation our family has had and thanks to this amazing property and its ideal location we have decided to make it an annual event. Working with Nicole was an absolute pleasure. Highly recommend!!
