Overview

About the property

A three bedroom, luxury beach house on the Caribbean Sea with a pool

This renovated, three bedroom home has every amenity you could want and including a solar heated pool! It has all the luxuries of your home but is set on over a half acre of land; the back door is steps away from the ocean. The cooling sea breezes frequently mean that the central air conditioning can be turned off without any discomfort.

The ambience is zen, calm and designed to have you forget all your worries. The fully outfitted kitchen has all of the amenities required to cook (or not), featuring stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and all of the necessities for a vacation including blender, coffee maker, microwave and, of course, an ice maker.

The dining room is set up for eight but can easily sit more if you have other family and friends over for a special occasion.

The living area features a flat screen LED TV with a DVD and Blue Ray player, Apple TV, an X-Box 360 and a selection of DVDs, CDs and games.

Each bedroom has its own thermostat so that everyone can be comfortable. The master bedroom features a king bed with an ensuite spa-like bathroom with an elegant shower with three showerheads, a double sink vanity and luxury linens. The other two bedrooms (one with a queen bed, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed upon request) share a bathroom with a tub and shower combination.

The main living area is just right for sitting (or laying) around - two large sofas (one that folds out to a queen sized bed, if required) and an extra large arm chair.

The screened-in porch is perfect for meals or escaping from the sun and the outdoor patio has lounging chairs and a charcoal barbecue (a gas grill is also available in the front). The back yard also features a fresh water shower for cleaning up after after snorkeling or swimming in the warm Caribbean ocean. A solar heated pool was added in 2014 and now things are perfect!

About Bonnie Gerow

We are both Canadians (and military brats!), living all over Canada, the United States and Germany until finding our home in the Cayman Islands. We have lived in Grand Cayman since 2007 and believe that our island is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean.

Bonnie Gerow purchased this villa in 2012

Why Bonnie Gerow chose North Shore

We acquired the property from a family who owned No Big Ting for over 43 years. We had hoped one day to own a home in this neighbourhood and purchased it when the opportunity arose. We completed an extensive renovation of No Big Ting in late 2012 to enhance and modernise things without losing its charm. A solar heated salt-water pool was added in September 2014 and we continue to update and improve the home. We think that this area is one of the best on island - snorkeling is steps away from the back deck and the ocean is protected by a reef no more than two hundred yards from the water's edge.

What makes this villa unique

This little beach cottage has become a not so little beach home. We have tried to incorporate all of the special things and amenities that we like to see when we travel and stay in vacation rental properties. Luxury linens, comfortable and modern furnishings, a proper functioning kitchen with all of the utensils and cooking items that will allow you to enjoy your meals, and the ambience of the Caribbean are our goals. The addition of the pool has made it just perfect and we can't be happier.

We think living on the beach is a dream come true and hope you will agree.

No Big Ting - Luxury Beach Villa in Grand Cayman

The beautiful No Big Ting has everything inside and out for a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

From the time we first stepped into No Big Ting, I knew we had chosen the perfect vacation home. The house was decorated beautifully but the view from the two large glass doors over looking the crystal clear blue ocean and swaying palms was the real show stopper. We spent most of our time snorkeling right out our back door and even swimming out to the reef a couple of times. When not in the ocean, we enjoyed relaxing in the pool gazing out at the beautiful scenery. No Big Ting has everything you could possibly need inside and out for a perfect vacation. We are already looking forward to a return trip.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at No Big Ting exceeded our expectations. Our group of 2 families (4 adults, 3 teenagers, 1 child) all had an exceptional time. The house includes everything and more needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Beds are comfy, master bath was perfect, kitchen is well equipped, entertainment options (tv, Xbox, etc) are available, and the screened porch and pool were so relaxing. We loved the beautiful beach views from the bedrooms and living area. The snorkeling was fun too! We highly recommend seeing the starfish at Starfish Point, the Blue Iguana Safari at the Eco Park, and StingRay City sandbar. We enjoyed living in paradise for the 5 days we were there. Thanks to the helpful owners who were able to assist us with several questions during our stay. We would like to return to GC and to this house as we loved it!

Little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Updated home with a killer view, the property is located near Kaibo Yacht Club and Rum Point Club. Highlights of the trip were a trip to nearby Crystal Caves and a jet ski safari, but most of the time we were just happy to stay at the house by the pool. I found the owners to be easily accessible and helpful. I will definitely be back.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

No Big Ting exceeded our expectations. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. The house was perfect for our group of 8 (4 adults, 3 teenagers, 1 child). The house was stocked with all necessities, beds were comfortable, and grill, snorkeling gear, and bikes were available in the garage. The view of the beach is amazing from both inside and outside porch. We all enjoyed snorkeling and several even swam out to the reef. The kids enjoyed the pool. We loved being so close to Rum Point, Starfish Point, Botanical gardens/blue iguana recovery center, etc. The food is pricey; however, we shopped our first day and cooked many meals in the lovely kitchen and on the nice Webber grill. The owner was pleasant and very helpful. If you want a beautiful view, perfect house, and relaxing vacation, we highly recommend staying at No Big Ting. My husband is already asking if I have rebooked the house for next year!

Fabulous - could not have been happier!

  • 5 of 5

NBT was awesome and exactly as described and shown. Great condition. Clean and beautiful.

Bonnie was tremendous and a 100% pro. The microwave died one night and she delivered a new counter unit the very next morning. Some outside lights went out and the motion sensors seemed to be on the blink too and she had them replaced on the whole house the very next day. She even brought us an electric air pump when we mentioned in passing that we had trouble pumping up the many bike tires.

100% satisfied -thanks Bonnie for helping us have an awesome week!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review and let me (and prospective guests) know what you experienced. I do apologise that you and your family were so unlucky as to have had those issues; however, we responded as quickly as we could and I'm happy that you were satisfied with our fixes. I will pass on your comments to our housekeepers as well; they work very hard to ensure that each guest gets a clean home that s/he can enjoy. Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts and we hope to see you again next time you visit our island!

No Big Ting is Great Big Fun

  • 5 of 5

No Big Ting is fantastic. Just what we were looking for. The property is immaculate. The pool on the beach was amazing as was the daily sunrise over the water.

Bonnie and Colin are fantastic hosts and made sure everything we could ever want was on hand and available.

The extra treat was the bicycles that we could ride to Starfish Point or to Kaibo restaurant and beach bar where we rented jet skis for a fantastic day at Singray City.

No Big Ting is great big fun. Highly recommended.

Car: recommended

The Rum Point area is away from all of the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach and the towns. The beautiful sand beaches and near constant sea breezes will instantly provide you with a sense of serenity and privacy. No Big Ting is a half mile from one of the best water resorts on Grand Cayman, named Rum Point Beach, having two restaurants, a bar and all of the water sports you can wish for including personal water craft rentals, trike rentals, stand up paddle boards, a glass bottom boat and swimming in some of the calmest waters on the island. Tours can also be booked including a trip to the famous stingray city and sandbar. There are lounge chairs, restrooms, change rooms and showers (all free). The locals moor their boats in the cove on Sundays, playing music and hanging out.
