Wonderful House, Perfect for 5 Couples

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Reef Romance. The house is laid out perfectly with 5 bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom.

The weather during our stay included 4 days of 20 MPH winds or greater. Some of my comments may be the result of that weather, others are not.

The outside bar was used only briefly. We utilized the refrigerator for overflow beverages. We didn't use the Kegorater which was taped shut, probably due to easily being blown open by the strong winds that this side of the island incur this time of year (February). We used the outside TV once after figuring out how to turn it on (instructions are provided, but difficult to follow). It appeared to us that you can either have the TV on out by the bar or in the living room, not both at the same time. When the wind was really blowing, the outside bar was not conducive to using.

Again, probably due to the wind, there was a lot of seaweed that washed up on our beach during our visit. You had to step over it to get into the water. In addition to the seaweed, a lot of trash was washing up as well. We did spend some time in the water just outside the house, but several in our party balked at having to step over the several feet of seaweed that had washed up over the windy days.

We didn't utilize the volleyball court, again due to the wind. The sand outside the house contains some corral and rocks, so it really wouldn't be great for playing volleyball barefoot. Probably would need to wear shoes to be safe.

We purchased a Bocci ball set from a local sports company and played that often. That was not a problem in the wind.

The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, glasses, etc. The only issue we had with the kitchen is that there are a large number of knives available, but none of them are very sharp. We did a lot of cooking while on the island and we had some difficulty cutting even an onion with the knives available. Not a big deal, just worth mentioning.

We didn't discover this until the day before we were leaving. There are some puzzles in the master bedroom chest of drawers, bottom drawer. There are also books under the sink in the 1/2 bath. It would be nice if there was an information book about things in the house, restaurant recommendations, places to visit, etc., rather than just instructions on how to use the TV.

The location is very private. We would definitely stay at this location again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. I will check with the manager about the TV usage, but do not believe you can only use one at a time. Knives will be sharpened or replaced. The wind was from the northeast during much of your stay and that does change the dynamics of the beach and seaweed. A short drive away is Rum Point that is a bit sheltered and is much less affected by the winds. Hope you were able to go there some. Our Silver Thatch Card is good for discounts there too!!! I wish we could control Mother Nature!! Please come back again soon. It was nice meeting your group! Scott

Great for large family or many couples

  • 4 of 5

Fun location, beautiful, but windy and trash prone North side beach, but plenty of sand to enjoy. House is very nice, not luxurious, but very clean and comfortable. Tv reception in bedroooms poor, but main room excellent. Kitchen could use some additional and upgraded cookware, no casseroles or glass bakeware to speak of. Grill is charcoal. Hot water and water pressure is great. Pool is clean and nice. Individual bedrooms are private and excellent.

Great stay for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults who were fortunate enough to book this place last minute after Irma changed our original plans for Tortola. We did take a few days out of the week to see some of the sights that Grand Cayman offers like star fish point and sting ray city and bioluminescent tours but the days we stayed at the house were just as great. We had basically our own private beach and saw star fish and sting rays out in the water. We brought bocce ball with us and enjoyed playing that out on the beach. We had a chef cook and private yoga and private massages without leaving the house. Roy was a pleasure to work with. The house is quite a haul from main grocery stores but it's nice being away from it all. The best bargain meal was Kurt's Corner. We also ate at Kaibo and Over the Edge for closer meals. The house is well stocked with spices and kitchen utensils and towels.

Perfect villa for 5 couples!

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our group of five couples and we highly recommend it. It offered a roomy gathering area on the ground floor, and five spacious private king bedrooms/bathrooms with ocean views, all set on a beautiful stretch of ocean. The villa is set back a bit from the road and has an empty lot on one side, making it very quiet and private. In addition to the master king suite on the ground floor, there is a half bath and a laundry room stocked with many beach towels. There is also an outdoor shower and a half bath at the pool cabana, making it very convenient to avoid tracking sand into the house. We also found useful the charcoal grill, a small outdoor refrigerator, and a pony kegerator. There were plenty of lounges/chairs for all ten of us to relax around the pool and on the beach. The villa is only a short distance to activities and Red Sail Sports at Rum Point, as well as several restaurants serving scrumptious lunches, dinners, and Sunday brunches [Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill, Rum Point Club Restaurant, Over the Edge, Kurt's Corner (hidden behind Water Boyz liquor store), Tukka, The Lighthouse]. After picking up our rental vehicles at the airport (Marshall's was great), we picked up groceries at Foster's IGA and a pony keg at the Cayman Brewery (nice assortment of beer options) on our way from the airport. (To save some money, pick up your duty free liquor at the airport before leaving on your flight to Grand Cayman.) Chisholm's groceries (quickmart style) is just down the road from the villa, which came in handy a few times, and it now has Sunday hours. Just pack your clothes and sunscreen, and come relax and enjoy this fabulous, comfortable home with spectacular views!

Car: recommended

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing breeze (trade winds) from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. ( ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina ( Click map on our home page. Lastly…we have (2) large resorts in the east end ( and ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a coffee/pastry shop). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. and offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
