"Smuggler's Retreat was beyond our expectations! My family loved the house, the pool and especially the view. We explored the island and went snorkeling at Buck Island but our favorite was to return to Smugglers and spend time at the house. We ate most meals at the outside table on the front porch. You couldn't get a better view at any restaurant. We can't wait to go back again!"

"Very large comfortable studio in a large 2 -3 story condo complex in former hotel now remodeled as condos. Walk to beach. Had large pool all to myself as other guests do not seem to use it much. Patio is nice place to sit, eat dinner, drink rum. Kitchen has all basic supplies. Bath has large shower with plenty hot water. Bed large and comfortable. It's about a 30 minute drive from airport with lots of traffic during the day. Parking lot is a bit of a walk up hill to condo. Views are great. Not good for those with disabilities / limited mobility. For limited hours during the day you can drive up to the condo to drop off groceries but gate is locked in evening. Power to entire complex went out for a few hours one night; not a major inconvenience as there is great breeze from the sea. I never used air-conditioner. Large population of semi-feral cats in complex so you do not need to bring your own cat. Alban and Francy very helpful and easy to deal with."

"after planning this trip for almost three years, and waiting and building this place up...and maybe stalking the pics on the site a little too often...this place had a LOT to live up to for me and my family.
it marvelously delivered.
the home is so brilliantly done. from the quality solid finishes, to the design touches that make it feel like something so much more than a vacation rental, to the INCREDIBLE julian and dinesh and mel...the team there was so on top of everything we needed help with and sent people over to fix a couple little things IMMEDIATELY. it was almost like they were hiding in the bushes ready to help us.
the grounds are exsquite, with many small places to hide and rest and read. (hammocks perfectly suspended between palm trees, two adorondack chairs nestled in the brush between the house and the beach, loads of amazing outdoor RESTORATION HARDWARE furniture... i mean really?!) sapodilla bay is almost like a secluded oasis (i only wish the beach was totally private...but alas all beaches are public so...the shaded tree right at the beachfront on the property was a popular place for people to park it right in front of the house, which sometimes wasn't ideal, but that isn't the fault of the villa)
the grounds are PERFECTLY landscaped, the views seem almost pretend they are so brilliant and blue, everything in the villa is top of the line and beautifully maintained.
and ...one night we had a personal chef CRAIG MCNEIL to the house to cook for us. i could not recommend HIM more and ...i found him by way of a couple different recommendations that started directly with the villa owner...so...yet another amazing example of how the entire team was working to make our time there so wonderful.
stay here. book it. NOW."

"The condo has everything you need for a great stay in Grand Cayman. The view from the veranda is perfect, and the grounds lovely. The pool area is spotless, and the pool quite large. there is a protected lagoon that has two ocean openings. Inside the condo, everything is in great working order. The kitchen is well equipped, including a frig with ice maker. The bathroom is very large, and lots of space for storage. We rented a car and found great snorkeling spots, visited the Queen's Gardens, Rum Point, 7 mile beach, Hell and more. this is a wonderful, quiet uncrowded location that was perfect for us"
