Why K. David Cadieu chose Grand Cayman

My wife and I traveled to Grand Cayman for the first time in 2010 and fell in love with the island. We were impressed with the unique location of Villas Pappagallo and quickly decided that we wanted to make the island a part of our life. We've spent the better part of 2012 renovating and updating our condo.

Beautiful, quiet location - perfect place to relax with great restaurants close by

  • 5 of 5

Grand Cayman is a beautiful island. Condo was clean, spacious and very well equipped. It made you feel like you were in a home away from home. Owner Dave was very helpful and responsive to questions. My friend and I were greeted by George, the property manager, who was also friendly and helpful.

Villas Pappagallo is a perfect place to relax. Condo has four balconies so you can sit outside in the sun or shade, as you prefer. Salt water pool was good temperature for swimming. Property is extremely well kept with mature shrubs and palm trees. A few chickens and roosters roam the property and add charm. Ample lounge chairs and regular chairs and tables by the pool and on the beach. We swam in the sea off the pier and several times went up the beach into the nature reserve where you can swim from the beach. Fosters, a chain grocery store, is about 10 minutes away by car and has a wide range of groceries. (You definitely need a car to get around.) There are many options for dining from casual to fine dining close by particularly if you like fish and seafood. There is one good restaurant across the street.

Stairs could be an issue for anyone with mobility issues as you walk up a flight from the front door to the main living area and then another flight to the bedrooms and bathrooms. A two piece bathroom on the main level would have been nice.

I would definitely rent this property again.

Nice View but...

  • 3 of 5

As previous reviewers have mentioned, this is away from the crowds and offers a nice view of the beach. It is adjacent to a trash strewn National Park that is appalling to walk along (both beach and road) but is pretty secluded.

But, here are the reasons for rating it low. While the view is nice, the beach is unusable due to the waves and coral. You will have to drive to another beach. The pool is unusable because it is freezing, even though it has been in the 80's. It is not heated and the only ones that use it are brave kids. The pictures also show what looks to be a hot tub but it is a kiddie pool. They do have an area that has jets, but again, no heat.

One of the worst parts of all is the God awful smell of the septic/sewer when you walk into the condo from the parking lot. You literally have to hold your breath and the balconies on that side cannot be used due to the smell.

If I returned to the island, I would not stay here again and would not recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review. I’m sorry that the property did not live up to your expectations, especially since we work very hard to ensure that our guests fully understand the property before they purchase a vacation with us and that it is a good fit for what they are looking for. That is why I personally speak with every guest before they book as well as throughout the process. Of course, I do not always speak with every member of a party traveling together and, It seems like it wasn’t a good match in this case, which is disappointing since we really want all our guest to leave wanting to return. Having spoken with another guest from the same party, I do understand that the group actually did have a good vacation and certainly enjoyed my condo. Most of the review comments seem to relate to ‘bad weather’ effects which is unfortunately something we can’t guarantee or control, but need to be understood in context. If a storm goes though we do get debris on the beach, but the beach is raked twice a week so it is quickly removed as soon as the storm passes through. The park also likely had more debris on the beach than normal due to the weather, but it is a national park that the island enjoys with a kite boarding school and horse back riding on the trails. There is also a picnic area and hiking trails. It is a well managed Grand Cayman National park. None of the swimming pools are heated in Grand Cayman because it is in the tropics and the swimming pools are where you go to cool down. There were in fact several people swimming last week so a comment regarding only two kids braving the water is inaccurate. Concerning a smell in the parking lot, this is the first complaint we have heard about this and have asked the maintenance crew to review, but it is certainly not an on-going problem if it is a problem at all. Obviously, it is very concerning to get such an extreme posting, especially if you look at my other reviews along with the other Pappagallo beach listings. We continually receive comments about how well kept and how beautiful the property is, and we rarely receive any form of negativity at all. Every property has pluses and minuses, but overall we generally get a five star rating from our guests. My advice to anyone researching these villas is to please read through all the other comments for a more accurate understanding of the property.

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to relax, rent this condo. Gorgeous views, no crowds and the condo has everything you need. Kitchen is well stocked and the decor is beautiful. The West End is a short drive to Seven Mile Beach. We would pack a lunch each day and visited Govenors and Cemetery beaches and then came back and had happy hour by the pool, which was never crowded. The Restaurant Pappagallos is a must and right across the road. Also, take a blanket after sunset and lay on that beach. The stars are amazing. Thanks Dave for a wonderful week!

Excellent Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Villas Pappagallo is located in a secluded section of the West Bay area, next to Barker National Park. It is an extremely tranquil location for those wishing to "get away from it all". Georgetown is about a 15-20 minute drive and Seven Mile beach is 10 minutes away. There is a supermarket 5-10 minutes away and a very nice restaurant (also named Pappagallo) a short walk away. The complex has a salt water pool and a nice beach with a pier. The underwater shore is a bit rough so it is not suitable for young children or older people but you can enter the water from the pier for some nice snorkeling or swimming. There is a coral reef within a reasonable distance for competent swimmers. We had our morning coffee and evening cocktails every day on the well maintained beach.

This condo was very well equipped and tastefully decorated/furnished. We have rented houses, condos, cottages, etc. in a lot of places and usually there is some inconvenience that you have to work around--not so here. You have everything you need for a comfortable and stress-free stay. The residents and guests tend to be sedate but cordial. If you are looking for a place where you can close the bar and stagger up to your room, this is not it. If you like to sit by the pool or ocean, enjoy a nice view in a serene location and meet nice people, this is the place.

The owner is responsive to your questions and seems quite reasonable and pleasant to talk to. He supplies a written guide to the property which covers the key issues such as passwords, phone, etc. Another small but convenient touch is that the condo has a keypad lock so people can come and go independently without having to worry about coordinating keys. As with the other two bedroom condos at this complex, the rooms--especially the bedrooms and bathrooms--are good sized so you don't feel crowded. We had balconies off the living room and master bedroom facing the ocean and secondary balconies with lesser views.

Tranquil Oasis in Villas Pappagallo

  • 5 of 5

Meticulously clean condo with luxurious bathrooms. Photos in VRBO are spot on! The entire condo is well decorated and perfect for two couples or a family. To have coffee on the balcony every morning, staring out to sea, was a perfect way to start the day! Relaxing vibe, peaceful and serene vacation. Spent most days at the pool, usually by ourselves, but the few people we saw were friendly and eager to exchange restaurant and activity suggestions. The owner, Dave, was easy to reach, knowledgable and very helpful.

We did visit 7 Mile Beach and enjoyed Ragazzi's Restaurant. We quickly returned to our beautiful private oasis in the West End to decompress from the chaos of 7 Mile Beach. Also ate nearby at the Cracked Conch and Papagallos (across the street from the condo) both were excellent.

We vacation to relax and reconnect with our family, this was the perfect spot to do just that. It was a quick drive if we wanted to go out somewhere, but we truly had everything we needed to relax and enjoy ourselves right there. Would highly recommend this condo! Cocktails on the balcony anyone?

THIS is what I'm talking about!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to Grand Cayman -but the first time staying at a Condo. The VRBO descriptions and pictures posted are accurate and Dave was very helpful. The Condo property was peaceful and grounds were maintained beautifully. We had the pool practically to ourselves on most days (LOVED that!), grilled out every lunch and hit our favorite restaurants at night. The convenience of having a washer/dryer handy was awesome. About midway through the week, we stopped by the Westin to arrange for a StingRay City boat trip and it felt like New York City compared to Villas Pappagallo's serenity. We will never stay on 7 mile Beach again.
