  • Perfect Family Vacation!

    "This was our first visit to the Cayman Islands and against some advice to stay on SMB (because we have 3 active sons ages 11-16) we decided to stay on the quieter side. We were all thrilled with that decision! The pictures online of the Retreat sold me--I wanted to be right on the point and walk right onto the beach--which is exactly how it was. Karen was great to work with and provided excellent information and suggestions prior to arriving. The condo itself was wonderfully clean and stocked with everything we needed and more. The third bed, made and ready for one of our boys in the second bedroom was a very nice extra touch. Having the restaurant, the wreck beach bar and red sail sports right next door was awesome and we used all of it daily. I just can't say enough about the wonderful location of the Retreat. None of use wanted to leave the point because it had everything we needed included awesome snorkeling, our own stingray and sea turtle encounters, bioluminescence in the bay, starfish beach and fun beach bbq's. Wonderful, wonderful place to stay."

  • The Best

    "We stayed for a week and had the best time ever. It is just like it says 20 paces to the beach. 40 ft out in the water and there is your first reef to snorkel. Next door is a dining and a bar, water sports, you name it. It was very clean and had everything you could think of for cooking, etc."

  • A nice reef-side respite, off the beaten path

    "We had a great time in Grand Cayman with our family of 6. The place was perfect for us. Plenty of room and to have the open patio with sand and ocean out the back door is so nice. Note when we were there - there was a lot of dried sea grass on the beach so not clear soft sand. The villas are very private and quiet. The house is located with the ocean on one side and the road on the back side by the small parking area. So at night with the windows open you can hear cars. There are not a lot of cars but on weekends there are more. The house is 10 minutes away from Rum Point, a popular spot on the north side of the island. The villa is off the beaten path and away from the big resorts of Seven-Mile Beach. There were only 2 or 3 of the villas rented the week we were there. Full kitchen which was great for us - with a large family we like to eat all our meals in and pack a picnic lunch, rather than eat at expensive restaurants. A cooler was provided. We went to the grocery store twice about 25 minutes away from house. Also the washer/dryer was a must. There are plenty of sand toys, snorkel gear, beach towels, etc. We did bring our own snorkel gear though. There are two bikes with helmets but unfortunately one of the bike pedals was broken. It looked like an extra pedal had been purchased as a replacement but it was not on the bike and it kept falling off. The outdoor shower was great for the kids! The snorkeling out back is wonderful on a clear and calm day. Unfortunately, there were only two calm days so most of the time the ocean was cloudy and rough. Hard to see the fish. So when it is rough and windy on the north side (which is where the house is) you have to drive to the south or west shores of the island to get calm water. Having said that, you MUST rent a car!! We rented two small cars and we were so thankful we did. To drive on the left was easy to get used to. There is really only one main road on Grand Cayman so it is easy to get around. Not too much traffic and seemed very safe. We didn't anticipate having to get in the car everyday (kids weren't too happy about it in the beginning) and drive to a beach/snorkeling spot but after we got used to it the kids were fine with it. Most good snorkeling spots are 25-40 minutes away from the house so just be prepared. We packed lunch every day. Frank was very accommodating in giving us all the villa and tourist information we needed. All in all a great place and maybe we will be back one day!"

  • Great condo, great location!

    "We loved staying here! The condo was wonderfully appointed and even had things like bug spray and a first aid kit. (you just replace what you use). the location is right on the beach and has some of the best snorkeling I've ever done. the condo is also conveniently located near Rum Point which also a great spot to visit. The owner really goes out of her way to make sure you are prepared for your stay and that you have everything you need. The welcome package received was really helpful. I would recommend this place to stay and would be more than happy to return to it again!"
