  • Secluded Island Getaway

    "Paul & Maggie have a gem of an oceanfront getaway here! We spent three lovely weeks, and had complete privacy - not a single person came by in our time here. The house is complete with everything you need, from cooking to cleaning to hanging out on the beach. The ocean was too rough during most of our stay to swim in front of the house, but it wasn't an issue as you only have to run over to the other side of the island for snorkeling and diving heaven. The main house a/c was down for parts during our stay, but the bedroom a/c was able to keep the house comfortable and the humidity down during our stay. The back porch is incredible, and we spent most of our time hanging there in one of the two hammocks that were large enough to accommodate my 6/4 270# frame! We brought frozen meat and wine in with us for the trip, and the grocery stores kept us fully stocked on everything else we needed. We loved the island enough that we are considering it for our retirement location. Don't come here if you're looking for fast night life with huge parties - the sidewalks are rolled up by 7 pm! But that's just the right time for stargazing - the night skies are amazing. And the diving lives up to the Cayman's expectation - it is simply the best place in the world! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and again . . .and again . . . and again!"

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "This property is wonderful. My husband and I stayed in the Hawksbill House which as other reviews mention, is perfect for two! There are great views whether sitting in the cabana's, or on the porch. Walking the beach can be a bit rocky, so make sure to wear some type of shoe with a sturdy bottom. If you walk into the water, keep an eye out for sea urchins. The sunsets are beautiful, so definitely plan to watch those from anywhere on the property. We left a fire pit on the beach, so collect some wood and make a fire. There is nothing more relaxing then watching a sunset, listening to the waves, and having a fire. There is a chicken coop so you can have fresh eggs everyday if you want! There are also grocery stores that are a short drive from the property. We cooked at home, on the grill, and ate out. It was nice to have those options. Visit the Barracuda for stone cooked pizza paired with a rum punch! The Tipsy Turtle is an outdoor bar which has LARGE portions and American food options. On Wednesday, Friday or Saturday visiting Barry to get his Jerk Chicken or pork is a must. These are all close to the property, but having a rental car would be recommended. We visited the Scuba Shack and Liesel was a wonderful help in getting us to "walk-in" or easy access points for snorkeling. WHICH, I highly recommend if you are not on the island to dive. We saw everything from Manta Rays, to varieties of fish, Barracuda's, Sting Rays, and even a Nurse Shark! We brought our own gear, but I believe rental is available. Take time to explore the island. We visited the Light House, some of the caves, the public beach, the museum, the Heritage, but never did find the parrot sanctuary? The Department of Tourism is right on West End Road near the airport. Traveling the island is easy once you get the hang of driving on the wrong side of the road. (We are from the US and admittedly, my husband did all the driving) Take a half day fishing trip with Jeff if he is available. We caught Black Fin Tuna and they made a great dinner. We were greeted when we got there, and the caretakers stopped in every other day to check on us. There is a beautiful swimming pool which was an appreciated addition to the property. There was no one staying in the Loggerhead House when we visited, so while the company would have been welcome, we had the property to ourselves for a week. I highly recommend this property! We are already talking about returning."

  • Wonderful place!

    "In April, 2016, my family and I stayed at beautiful Tropical RunaWay and found it to be a perfect place for a family gathering! The house and surrounding grounds were very well-equipped with everything one would need, including a chicken coop from which our grandchildren collected fresh eggs for breakfast every morning! We spent many hours playing in the pool and lounging on the wrap-around veranda after a day of snorkeling, caving, rock climbing, fishing, or kayaking. The beach is perfect for long walks, and the cabanas are great places to watch the gorgeous sunsets every night. Karen, the owner, and the Clarks were extremely helpful with their “insider” hints on where to go and how to navigate the island. Simply put, everything combined to make this an unforgettable experience!"
