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.

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.

Beautiful, clean, and serene

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at No Big Ting for our daughter's wedding in Grand Cayman. The property was absolutely perfect! The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, tupperware, and more! The view from the house is gorgeous and the rooms are all far enough from each other to provide privacy for all housemates. The house is conveniently located close to many restaurants, we had a great time at Rum Point and Kaibo. Bonnie was a joy to work with, we will absolutely work with her again for our next trip to the island!

Chicest Private Rental Home at Rum Point

  • 5 of 5

We looked for several hours online before booking the wonderful NBT. We were so happy we did. The renovations are top notch, beautiful contemporary finishes, and great layout for a large group or family of four as ours. The house is so well equipped from the kitchen to linens, outdoor gear, etc. We knew we did not want to stay full time on Seven Mile beach because of the crowds and less space than a house. I am so happy we rented NBT and were able to cook in, travel up to Rum Point for Kaibo's Tuesday's all you can eat Bar-B-Q dinner with band, rent additional snorkel gear for our children at Red Sail up the road, enjoy the privacy of the screened in porch with ocean views, and deck for watching our children swim in the pool. We did travel over to Seven Mile Beach and did enjoy the crystal clear waters but loved returning home to NBT. The winds at NBT are so welcome and offer a nice cool breeze. Seven Mile Beach is very hot in the sand. There are a few small mini-markets 15 minutes away at Morritt's and down the road at Chisolms. Better shopping at Hurley's (like a Harris Teeter) when you arrive or are back in town sightseeing. We loved St. Pedro House, Botanical Garden, Easter Brunch at the Ritz Hotel, Calypso Grill, Tukka and Luca our last day. Cooking 2 meals in a day was great. We loved having the car to explore the island looking for more snorkeling spots, see the blowholes, etc. You will not be disappointed renting No Big Ting. You are surrounded by million dollar properties and this house is set back from the road quite a bit which was nice. The owners are lovely and have put a lot of thought into this beautiful home. Which is actually a very Big Ting!

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.
