  • 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."

  • We loved it!

    "The location of the condo is perfect. Tucked between the Ritz and the Westin. A friendly security guard is on the beach so that you can feel comfortable leaving items on your beach chairs (although, we always felt safe leaving our items on the beach at other areas). Snorkeling was amazing, with different life seen daily. The unit had every comfort you would ever need with convenient Bose sound systems. The view from the patio was perfect. The covered patio (not all have a covered patio) allowed us to sit outside in shade or protected from the passing showers. I would definitely stay in this unit again. The owners are great at replying to any questions. Also, everything is walking distance away and the buses that consistently go up and down the main road will pick you up anywhere, they honk, you wave, they pull over. Only $2.50 US dollars to go as far up or down the 7 mile stretch as you like. The grocery store is a short walk and you can bring grocery carts back to the condo complex, and they are picked up for you. Tons of great restaurants everywhere. Taxi ride from the airport is $23, so no need for a car unless you want to travel to the other side of the island....which we will do on our next visit."

  • Great location

    "We enjoyed our stay in Unit 3 at Cayman Reef. The owner was always available to contact and was extremely nice to work with us after an injury delayed our trip. The location was easy to access any where we wanted to go. The beach is everything you could want on Seven Mile Beach! The condo worked well for our family of 4."

  • Fantastic Condo!

    "We live in Grand Cayman and stayed at this Villa for a Stacy-cation and it was absolutely amazing! Villa is beautiful and very well maintained. It was such a nice touch to arrive and find the unit already cooled down for us! The unit was stocked with everything needed including beach toys, towels and koozies! The ocean front porch was the perfect spot for my morning coffee with the pristine Seven Mile beach view. Being steps from the beach was fantastic, from morning runs to playing in the ocean all day with my family and watching the spectacular sunsets. This Villa is so well located, with great restaurants in walking distance and next door to two beautiful hotels which have all the water sport rentals and more. We checked in Friday and didn't get into a car until departing Sunday night. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!"
