About Nicole Ritch

Hello, my name is Nicole Ritch; my friends call me Nikki.

As a Cayman Islands native, I am delighted to welcome you to our island and share my knowledge of its heritage, history and things to explore.

If you’ve never been to Cayman before, NO WORRIES! I’m here to answer all of your questions, give advice or help arrange car rentals, watersports activities, wedding planners, and general concierge services.

Being local I have experienced firsthand the culinary delights served by various restaurants on the island. From small locally run restaurants to 5-star award-winning restaurants; just ask and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Looking for a night out on the town? I keep my eyes out for the best clubs to party or romantic places to dance under the stars. I’ve got you covered!

I will meet you at the house for check-in; give you a walk through and hand over the keys. I always make sure to have time for your questions and get you off to a great start. I'm also on call during your stay.

Delivering real Cayman style hospitality is what I strive for. My guests leave feeling they have their own Cayman home and a Caymanian friend always happy to receive them as family.

Welcome to Nikki's Place, your Cayman home!

Nicole Ritch purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've only had great experiences with our VR site, but when I write these reviews, I always try to include a note or two for future guests of things that weren't quite as expected or things to keep in mind when considering if the property is right for them. I don't have any such addendum's for Nicole's place. Everything from the original communication at the booking request, to check-in, to her generous gift of DELICIOUS jerk chicken on our second night there, to her helpful shopping recommendations, to check out was a smooth, comfortable and wonderful experience. The home slept our party of 12 (including an 11, 5 and 9 month old) comfortably. We made good use of the fantastic media room in the evenings, and cooked a host of great meals in the completely stocked kitchen, with groceries from the store a stone's throw away. Our week in Grand Cayman was perfect and it all started with this house. Thank you, Nicole!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our second stay at Nikki's place (our first stay was in March). We couldn't wait to come back and we weren't disappointed. The instant you walk through the front door you feel like you are at home. Nikki is the warmest most welcoming hostess ever! She brought us the most delicious jerk chicken that her mother made our first night. Simply amazing food! The house is everything you need and more! The kitchen even had a crockpot which we used to prepare our meals for the evening while out enjoying the island! This house says welcome home as soon as you arrive! You can't go wrong booking with Nikki!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Alicia! I absolutely loved having you guys back. That crockpot can be a real time saver; it always is for me! My mom was laughing saying "They hooked now"! Even as I'm writing this I'm smiling. Thank you for taking care of the house as always. It's a comforting feeling to know I have a responsible guest such as yourself, staying in my home. See you again next year my friend, if not sooner! Nikki

The entire family wants to come back and stay here again!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire "Brady Bunch" family came to stay here at Nikki's house for summer vacation. We had the most fun and we're all so sad when we had to leave. The house has an awesome set up and we will definitely stay here when we come back. Hopefully, very soon!

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect!! I would highly recommend this home, you can't ask for anything more. The house was beautiful and had everything we could have needed. The amenities were fantastic, the house was spotless, the beds were super comfy, the bedrooms are nice and large, so there was plenty of space! The location is great too! There are several really nice restaurants that are close and the grocery store is just across the street. My family explored most of the island, but our favorite beaches were Public Beach and Governor's Beach, both of which were just 5-7 minutes away (driving).

And Nikki, I'm not even sure where to start - she was AWESOME! She was kind and welcoming, like an old friend from school! She made us feel very comfortable and was always available. The level of hospitality she provided was second to none! She definitely has a gift and you can tell that she loves what she's doing! Oh, and if you like jerk chicken or tres leches cake, look no further!

My family and I had an incredible time and would absolutely, without a doubt, return!! Thank you so much, for everything, Nikki!!!

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure having you and your family as guests Tiffany. I could see that you really enjoyed your stay and took full advantage of the nearby amenities. Thank you for the AMAZING cookies. I'll be dreaming of them until you get back! My mom was also thrilled to hear you loved her Jerk chicken. I truly appreciated how clean you left the house and your warm welcome every time I visited. Thank you again for everything and I hope to see you again real soon!

Great vacation spot for families

  • 5 of 5

House was as good as advertised. Great location minutes from Turtle Farm, dolphins and beach. We were 2 families total 11. 7 kids under 13. We parasailed, jet skied, snorkeled, swam with dolphins and more. Cannot say enough good things. Nicole was on top of things from booking originally and keeps amazing communication. She's helpful and attentive. Again great experience with house and island overall. Look forward to returning

Amazing, Beautiful, and Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

First off thank you Nikky! This was our second time on the island, my fiancé and I rented this property for our family for our wedding. We rented it for 10 nights. My family stated 7 nights and my husband and I moved into the house after our wedding, and we loved it. The family loved the location. Beach is across the street, as is the grocery store, it's down the street from the hotels on 7 mile beach. The house is perfectly located and great service. I cannot wait to come back since now the Caymans have a special place in our hearts. We enjoyed this house actually more than the hotel. You cannot go wrong with this house and Island!

Owner's Response: Wow Angelica! Thank you so much for sharing your experience! It means everything to have you say you enjoyed your stay at the house even more than the hotel! I've always indulged in the fact that everything I needed was so close to the house. Your family was very warm and friendly; always making me feel welcomed. Thank you treating the house as your own home and for sharing your special moment. I truly hope you come back soon, soon, soon. Nikki

Amazing and Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

First off, thank you Nikky! She has been an amazing host!!! I have talked to Nikky throughout the year because we were planning a wedding in the Caymans, so the house was located perfectly a couple of miles up the road from the hotel. We booked this house for 10 nights for our family and they absolutely fit comfortably and loved the location. As honeymooners we came in when our families left and we loved it more than staying in the hotels on 7 mile beach. If you like to get the more local and comfortable feel then this is it!!! Great location...I can't express enough how beautiful this island is and how nice everyone is. It was our second trip there and we will be back. It's our home away from home!!! Again Nikky, Thank you so much!!!
