                                                            JERRY L.

                                                            Overall high marks for the home. Comfortable, clean and presentable.

                                                            Big disappointment when it came to snorkeling out front of the condo. No easy entry from the so called beach as advertised. Enjoyed our stay but would not come back. Best snorkeling on the island was by far Eden Rock Dive Shop and site.


                                                            We stayed in this house before and it very comfortable with amazing views.

                                                            David D.

                                                            It's a nice place to take the stress off and relax. The floor plan is set up for privacy with a large group.

                                                            As expected from pictures.

                                                            TrudySt.Louis, Missouri

                                                            We arrived after dark after getting lost several times. The sign is about 4x6 inches with 'Mahogany Cove' on it. Everything was as expected as per the online pictures.

                                                            We were not happy with the fact that the house manager did not know we were coming.

                                                            The door code opened the lower apartment but not the main house. We used the downstairs

                                                            phone to call Claudette and she was shocked that she had guests. She had not known.

                                                            She came over and was very gracious and sorry that the house was not ready. We helped as we could.

                                                            We were not happy that the road outside was so busy. The traffic noise was not our favorite. Everyone goes so fast! We knew it was on a road but not that it was so busy.

                                                            We were told that we only got 2 rolls of toilet paper per person (for a 9 night stay) and would have to purchase our own. Seriously? We have rented homes across the Caribbean and have never had to purchase our own. We also ran out of trash can bags and paper towels.

                                                            There was 1/4 cup laundry detergent left when we departed.

                                                            The next door neighbor cleared off his beach of plant material and dumped it in front of Mahogany Cove. We had proof of this as there were wheel barrow marks in the sand leading directly to his wheel barrow and rake. There were piles of debris in front of Mahogany Cove.

                                                            Everything considered this was not our favorite house nor was Grand Cayman our favorite island. It is unlikely that we would return to either. We have rented homes in the USVI and Bahamas in the past for a total of over 25 weeks. We came to GC because of the devastation in the USVI. We picked this house because of the price. We would recommend a house in Rum Point over this location.

                                                            This is a perfect place for multiple families. Stunning views.

                                                            Kristen A.

                                                            Perfect place for our group of 2 families with 4 adults and 4 young teenagers. Highlights include stunning, picture-perfect views, incredibly kind owner who lives next door (unobtrusive but available, upbeat lovely man), dock in which you can see tarpon during the day and bioluminescent jellyfish at night, private beach with 2 hammocks perfect for reading and snoozing. The water is shallow past the dock so very easy and safe snorkel conditions for kids. The beach has sand but you definitely need water shoes for the water (all the kids loved it). The house has a fabulous waterfront porch perfect for card games and morning coffees. The house has an unusual configuration but was great for our group. Main living area has a master bedroom and a bathroom (shower) and then a room with a double and twin beds and bathroom (shower). The same floor has a third bedroom which is a mirror image of the room w the double and twin beds and bathroom but you get to it from the front porch- no access from the main living area. So, perfect if you have older kids like we did or adults who want privacy but don't need immediate access to the rest of the group. Kitchen is fine, has the stuff you need and there is a grill outside. We also rented the downstairs suite, which is great. It has a master bedroom, bathroom, small kitchen, small living room w couch and 2 chairs and a screened in small porch (table and 2 chairs has view of the ocean- lovely for breakfast ). This space would be ideal if the group had a family w an infant or toddlers as they could have a place for naps and early bedtimes.

                                                            Locationwise we were happy w it although we were intentionally looking for a spot away from the tourist areas. 20 min drive to Rum Point, Starfish Cove and the closest grocery store, 5 min drive to Botanical Gardens, Lighthouse restaurant, 40 min from Georgetown and 7 mile beach.

                                                            This is a relaxed, put your feet up beach house getaway. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                            A little piece of paradise!

                                                            Barbara W.

                                                            My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in the downstairs apartment. It had everything we needed for the perfect stay. The bed slept well. The bedroom and common areas are equipped with their own AC units, allowing you to have each area set to the temperature of your liking.

                                                            The view of Frank Sound is breathtaking. We will definitely come back again!

                                                            Charles H.

                                                            This place was absolutely great! Like I stated in the title, my wife loved it and she's pretty particular! In fact, everyone in our group of seven was beyond pleased and impressed. I was a little nervous due to the lack of reviews when we booked it, so I wanted to make sure it got its due justice so you would have a better feel about this amazing place.

                                                            The pictures are an accurate description of the villa. It is simple but clean and comfortable and well kept. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you might need. We cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner regularly there during our 8 day stay. You have a full size refrigerator. (Stop at Foster’s right by the airport or Hurley’s on your way out) The three bedrooms upstairs are all very private and have their own full bathroom. The room downstairs is literally its own little apartment with full kitchen, living room, etc. This place will hold 8 with complete privacy and 12 will fit quite comfortably if they don't mind sleeping on a pull-out couch. The view is excellent and the environment is serene. We hardly saw another soul minus the neighbors on your left who are extremely nice and friendly but also private and will not bug you. This is not a long expansive beach but there is sand and it is nice and clean. Right along the shore there is some rock and it stays fairly shallow (1-3 feet) with some grass so it's not going to be a place you're probably going to sit in the water. Even being on the south shore there is a nice reef so you won't fight too many waves. There was always a nice breeze blowing in from the south/east so mornings and evenings on the outdoor screened-in deck were outstanding. The air conditioning works great and keeps the inside nice and cool. They have nice chairs to lay out on and a little gazebo with a couple hammocks. Near the end of the trip the girls decided to get massages on the beach under the palm trees. The whole place really has a nice vibe.

                                                            There is some snorkeling if you go out and around the dock to your left. Past the grass it will drop from being so shallow to 3-6 feet deep. About 30 yards out from that dock on the left there is a concrete block that held some lobsters and lion fish. One day my buddy and I swam all the way out to the reef. There is a little coral out there but probably not worth the swim. Spend your time taking a 10 minute trip to one of the many good spots on the north shore (Cayman Kai public beach around to Rum Point is EXCELLENT).


                                                            East End, Cayman Islands

                                                            The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes in “Cottage” on the south east coast offer great reef protected snorkeling as well as proximity to the best SCUBA diving operations/dive sites on the entire island. www.oceanfrontiers.com and www.tortugadivers.com are two of the best in east end. Cottage, being on the south coast, also enjoys fewer “nor’wester” storms in winter and the water tends to be very calm on the beaches. The larger Fosters grocery store in Savannah is only 15 minutes drive west…as are the Subway store, Wendy’s, DVD rental spots and Savannah medical clinic/pharmacy. Cottage is also very near the Lighthouse Restaurant (www.lighthouse.ky) and the Queen Elizabeth Botanical Garden on Frank Sound Road. Lastly; Cottage is much closer to Georgetown and 7 Mile Beach than Rum Point and the north coast; so if frequent trips to the West Bay area are anticipated, a villa in Cottage, Frank Sound or in “Breakers” might be a good choice.
