This rare getaway is all about relaxation, tranquility and the ultimate in privacy, yet water adventures are footsteps away. The home is located on the north shore of Little Cayman in the center of Mary's Bay less than 1/2 mile west of Mary's Cut. Our reef is only a 100 yard swim from our beach. You can also snorkel and fish right from the beach. You can enjoy miles of private walks on isolated sand beaches stretching west.

LICENSED BY THE CAYMAN ISLANDS DEPARTMENT OF TOURISM and PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED AND MAINTAINED: This property is licensed as a class A tourist accommodation by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. Although we (the owners) handle all bookings, Beachcomber’s Paradise is professionally maintained by Little Cayman Property Management which is headed by Marc Pothier. Marc has decades of resort and vacation property management experience in the Caribbean and has been the manager of the Paradise Villas resort on Little Cayman for the past 16 years. Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and transported to the house for an orientation. On your departure you will be taken back to the airport if needed. Marc and his team are also on island and available 24/7 if and when needed.

THE 'FRIENDLIEST' ISLAND: Little Cayman is best known for its diving, fishing, snorkeling, and internationally protected bird sanctuaries. Jacques Cousteau rated the Bloody Bay dive site on the north west end as his #3 best dive site in the world! The Cayman Islands have also been rated as the friendliest place in the world to visit by Forbes Magazine. Little Cayman Island lies 85 miles east of Grand Cayman, 450 miles south of Miami and 120 miles south of Cuba. The weather from December through May is consistent and reliable, averaging to 80 to 85 degrees with nice island breezes. The island is only 1 mile wide and 10 miles long and is remarkably undeveloped and under populated. There are only 150 full time residents.

LITTLE CAYMAN DIVING: There are four top notch dive operations with nice boats to choose from on Little Cayman. All are very good. If you want to shore dive you can arrange to rent tanks. Conch Club Divers is independent of any resort and enjoys good reviews. Email them at: ccdivers@candw.ky From US (832) 460 9127 On Island (345) 948 1026

Pirate's Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach resort are the other dive operations. Reservations and advanced booking is recommended for all diving.

Diving Highlights:

1. World famous Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park with magnificent wall diving.

2. Turtles, Spotted Eagle Rays, Reef Sharks, Nassau Groupers, Moray Eels, Stingrays, Schools of Horse-Eye Jacks, Barracuda, Seahorses and much more!

3. 100's of different hard and soft corals and over 500 types of fish.

4. Incredible visibility & usually 100 to 150 feet, with little or no current.

5. Warm water... Winter 78 to 80 (F), Summer 82 to 86 (F).

TRANSPORTATION AND VEHICLE RENTAL: The home is located 7 miles from Blossom Village and the airport. There is NO public transportation on Little Cayman. Transportation from the airport on your arrival date and back to the airport on your departure date are included in the rates. You will need to rent scooters or a rental car for the rest of your stay----bicycling the 7 miles each way to and from Blossom Village, shopping and the restaurants is not recommended except for the most adventuresome and athletic visitors. There are two car rental companies on Little Cayman Island: We recommend Little Cayman Car Rentals run by Carla Reid phone: (345) 948 1000 or email littlcay@candw.ky--they also rent scooters. Bruce Miller aka 'Scooter Bruce' (345) 916 4971 rents scooters too, but only in the high season and he delivers scooters to you.

BICYCLE RENTAL: Email Marc Pothier for pricing and reservations. Delivery of bicycles to the house is available.

FISHING: On a fishing charter, the catch could be tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, grouper, snapper, kingfish and the occasional sailfish depending on the season and what you’re targeting. Fly fishing for bonefish, tarpon, and permit in the shallow waters and inland brackish lakes is also popular. There are charters available for blue water-deep sea fishing as well as guides for fly fishing. Call or email us for information, pricing and recommendations.

RESTAURANTS: There are 4 good restaurants on the island, each associated with the five resorts on the island. Prices range from moderate: Hungry Iguana; and to expensive: Pirates' Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach Resort.

GETTING THERE. You will first need to fly to Grand Cayman which most major carriers service. From Grand your only option is to take a 25 minute (90 mile) flight on Cayman Airways to Little Cayman which is $151.00 USD for a round trip ticket. We recommend that you book a 2 hour layover on Grand so you can be sure to make the Cayman Airways flight to Little Cayman if your flight to Grand is delayed.

You will not be disappointed in our home and accommodations and Little Cayman Island as a memorable getaway!

Warm Regards,

Kammy and Brian

About Brian Essi

Being avid divers, snorkelers, beachcombers, and fisherman/fishing woman, we love getting away from it all and back to nature. All three of our children are also divers and love the water.

Brian Essi purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Essi chose Caribbean

After decades of traveling and diving throughout the Caribbean, we found that when we returned to many places years later, they were somewhat ruined by high rises and too many tourists. Little Cayman is in a time warp but still has most of the amenities of more developed places. We chose Little Cayman Island for a number of reasons. 1. Great diving, fishing, snorkeling and beach-combing. 2. The island is clean, well preserved and underdeveloped--no large resorts and no cruise ships. 3. No crime: there is law and order here and a good government---very safe--also, medical services on island and a world class hospital close by on Grand Cayman. 4. Our house is on the quite side of the island and its like having miles of sand beach all to ourselves yet we can go to the restaurants if we don't feel like cooking.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, peaceful, safe and remote. Everyone who lives, works and visits here is genuinely happy to be here. How refreshing and unique is that from what you may experience elsewhere.

28 days in paradise...

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Brian and Kammy for sharing this amazing property with us. Your home is perfect!

The kitchen is fantastic, we ate most of our meals at home because the kitchen had every gadget we needed (my husband owns a restaurant so he knows the value of a great kitchen).

The house is open and welcoming with plenty of space for all our house guests. We loved the outdoor shower, biking around the island, sitting on the deck in the evening, the solitude, snorkeling 2-3 times a day, watching the wildlife...and rarely seeing anyone unless we drove to town.

We brought Vermont maple syrup, coffee and cheddar cheese, but other than that we did all of our shopping on the island. The store owner is very nice...things in the store are expensive, but it was very convenient.

Marc Pothier, the property manager, is excellent. He has been on the island for over 20 years, so he is knowledgeable and friendly.

We found the dive center at The Little Cayman Beach Resort to be very friendly and helpful. We rented equipment and did a shore dive at Jackson's Point...awesome! We also had lunch at the resort a few times and found the food to be quite good.

We highly recommend this home...we are already planning our next trip!

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well appointed home on a quiet and peaceful island. Easy to navigate (with a car), amazing snorkeling just off the back yard, safe for little ones (with reef shoes). Couldn't have asked for more.

Guys Dive Trip

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent island villa to stay at on Little Cayman! We were 4 guys, diving 3 dives/day for a week. Beachcomber's Paradise fit all our needs perfectly, with even more amenities than we had time. This place is right on the shore, with a great kitchen, lots of space, and a nice patio for night caps and fish stories. We dived with Conch Club Divers which was an easy 10-15 minute drive from the house (you will need a car). On our dive trips we enjoy making our own big meals, bringing steaks, ribs, pasta, etc to cook on the island. This kitchen was fantastic, having every tool, bowl, pan, and gadget possible (including multiple food processors) -- and a BBQ in the back. Everyone on the island was very friendly. Had we brought our wives, I'm sure they would have enjoyed snorkeling right off the shore and using the kayaks. We just didn't have time and stuck with our fun dive/dive/dive/eat/drink/sleep routine.

The owner, Brian, was great about answering our island planning and logistics questions. His "Beachcomber's Guide" explained everything we would want to know in advance to coming to Little Cayman, including travel planning suggestions to/from Grand Cayman. The property management team there on the island was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent nine nights at Beachcombers Paradise. The five of us really had a great time on the private stretch of sandy beach. Reading, napping in the shade of a palm tree, or snorkeling in the beautiful clear water. Three of us are divers and we would make the 10-15 minute ride each morning to the other end of the island to dive with conch club divers. We had a great time with them diving some of the worlds best sites. The house was very comfortable and had plenty of room for dining, playing games,or just lounging on the large sofas. The kids actually slept on the sofas at night because two of the air conditioners are at each end of the large living room. The master bedroom has a third air conditioner making it very comfortable for my wife and me. We loved the house, beach, and the island. Every one we met on the island were very friendly. We felt safe and welcomed every where we went. We would definitely do it again. And definitely recommend Beachcombers Paradise.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home justice.

The beach and sunsets were amazing as well as the stars at night.

The home was huge and well equipped.

What a wonderful relaxing time.

Thank you for sharing your home!

The grocery and liquor store had everything you need.

This Is Paradise it's best!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my, there is so much to say about this property. My wife and I spent 7 nights here with total peace and quiet. It definately was our best vacation ever.

To start with there is every amenity needed here and more.

The kitchen along with the outside grills allowed for some great meals with every tool and appliance necessary.

The bedding is very comfortable as is the rest of the furnishings including outdoors.

All in all we were as comfortable here as we are in our own home.

Now the scenery, OMG every window you look through has breathtaking views of the ocean. Outdoors was also great with plenty of sun or shade to enjoy. The sunsets are stunning!

Our only regret was having to leave.

We strongly recomend this rental and suggest that you stay as long as you can.
