  • Great two bedroom with amazing views.

    "This house has amazing views! This is the perfect house to just relax at. Open living room, kitchen , and dining room make for a great area to hang out in to escape the heat, or enjoy the ocean view while cooking, drinking, and dining. The house deck is the perfect spot to watch sunsets. If you want a quiet getaway where you only hear ocean then this is the place. Only a short drive to grocery store and a liquor store. The owner is friendly and very helpful."

  • Paradise

    "The Space- First, Minnie's property is amazing. We had the privilege of staying at both the cottage and the apartment. Minnie was gracious enough to help with our Thursday-Thursday stay which required staying on one space for a few nights then moving to the other. If you are honeymooning I suggest the cottage otherwise personally I prefer the apartment where we stayed for the majority of our vacation. The apartment has an amazing view of the ocean and beach. Minnie's description is on point and the space IS comfortable - pillow-top mattresses, great pillows, etc. Plenty of spaces on the beach for chilling including hammocks and shelters. The property is beautiful and well maintained. It has the perfect blend of vegetation and open space. We spent a lot of time everyday in the water in front of the property. The beach at Minnie's is interesting in that it does not enter into the water this is normal on this side of the island. The only place you will find a "traditional" sandy beaches will be by the resorts. DO NOT let this deter you! Minnie has a small dock that takes you out past the iron-shore so you can either swim or snorkel. Snorkeling in front of her house is great. This place is truly wonderful and our family had an amazing time hiking the shoreline, swimming, kayaking, fishing, and just relaxing. Snorkeling- The island is literally a reef that came out of the ocean. Almost all of the island has what is called iron shore. Very few property owners have cleaned up the shore like Minnie has - she has the true diamond on this small island that she painstakingly carved out. We are snorkelers and used 2mm booties (I would actually get thicker booties to get through the iron shore around the island) and open heel fins to take full advantage of the snorkeling around the island - the only place you don't need this setup is by the public beach. If you have a young snorkeler I recommend the following shore dives/snorkeling locations - Handcuff Reef, Sylvia's Reef, Radar Reef, Scott's Dock, Buccaneer. They each have ladders into the water and are very easy to navigate. Be sure to bring your inflatable snorkel vest for visibility and safety. Other- There's not a lot of great eating locations on this island. There are a few gems- Barry's Jerk, Pat's Kitchen, and Captains Table (for lunch). I highly recommend buying fresh fish from a guy on the West Cross Road he has a large pink sign - "fresh fish for sale." $4CI/pound."

  • 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!"
