  • A True Island Gem

    "WOW! There are just no words to describe this place. This home is perfectly located, beautifully decorated and fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The best snorkeling is right outside your back door. Just don't forget your water shoes! The swimming pool is the perfect place to unwind with a daiquiri or a nice glass of wine. There are 3 liquor stores on the island-Miss Mary Lou's, Big Daddy's and Island Man Rum Shop. Pretty sure we hit them all. There are also 3 main grocery stores-Market Place, Kirkconnell's and Billy's. Don't be surprised if you have to stop at all 3 to get everything on your list. But hey, that's the fun part! If you're looking for a good Ribeye to throw on that super cool outdoor grill though, you can pretty much forget it. May want to consider packing a cooler of meat, which can be checked as luggage but must be packed frozen and in its original packaging. On the days you don't feel like cooking there are a few restaurants worth mentioning. Brac Reef Resort is home to The Palm (Friday nights are BBQ night) and The Tipsy Turtle (great bar menu). Eats & Treats (burgers and ice cream) and PoPo Jeb's (pizza) both deliver. Star Island is a great breakfast choice. If you need cash there is one bank on the island. The 24 hour ATM gives you a choice of US$ or CI$. When you're out and about be sure to check out the caves (don't forget your flashlights)! Peter's cave is spectacular and filled with a rich and interesting history. Rebecca's cave was also one of our faves. If you're wanting to feel the sand between your toes, the one and only Public Beach is the perfect spot for that. Tons of hermit crabs there too! The Lighthouse is the gateway to the most breathtaking views you'll ever see. Take your camera! Derwin was also amazing. He was very attentive and made himself readily available to answer any questions we had. On our second to last day, we took a boat ride with Derwin to Point of Sand on Little Cayman. We spent the entire day snorkeling, fishing and picnicking. It was hands down our favorite and most memorable part of the trip. Thank you Derwin! Before you leave the island, if it's the last thing you do, take a trip to NIM Things. There you'll be met by Tenson Scott, the owner and maker of the most interesting and unique necklaces. Just give yourself at least an hour as he's quite the story teller! Thank you, Cha-che, for all tips prior to our trip, the use of your car, and the sharing your beautiful home!"

  • Snorkeling paradise

    "My family of five stayed in this condo. We loved the views and the ground floor location was so convenient. The beds were comfortable with adequate pillows and blankets. Some wear to the furniture but nothing that would be unusual. Kitchen was well stocked, loved having the washer and dryer. Would definitely recommend this unit! About the area: We felt safe and walked everywhere. Yes there is an unattractive property behind sunset cove but we never felt scared. Yes,use common sense when out. We loved that our unit had a front door combination lock-nice touch,no cards or keys to lose. We used the bus system or walked everywhere-very easy to use. The swim up pool bar is awesome with great food and happy hour drinks. Shout out to Jesse who kept the drinks coming and made for a fun time for my adult kids. The bar closes at 10so no late night partying which is nice. Our absolute favorite thing was the snorkeling cove! We spent most of the time there and found such cool sea life. Visibility was excellent except for our last day. We went to the seven mile beach part to the right and enjoyed that too but we felt our spot was the best. Read the tips and comments in the books in the condo. Very helpful.. Took a waverunner tour to stingray city-awesome experience. Did the bioluminesence kayak tour and loved that too. DNS diving is a short walk behind the property and we highly recommend them as well. Lots of great food- Coconut Joe's, The Warf, The lobster pot Peppers, XQ's and Copperfalls steakhouse. Copperfalls was our favorite and worth the money. All our pricey but we were aware and saved up for it. We ate breakfast and lunch in each day and dinner out each night."

  • Wonderful, once again!

    "Calypso Condo at Gentle Winds is just perfect! This is our 2nd year staying 2 weeks per year, always clean, well stocked with games, toys, tennis equipment, beach gear, golf clubs and balls, etc... Any issue we've had Angela has happily taken care of within the same day. This condo is centrally located and whether you just want to sit by the huge pool and soak up the sun or be super active and go diving, snorkeling, and horseback riding, this is the place for you! We have 4 kids and they loved the basketball court, ping pong table, shuffle board, and board games. The condo is designed so our family could spread out into the 3 bedrooms/3 baths/ 3 balconies. We spent a lot of time at Cane Bay this year getting our diving certification, and it's only 10 minutes down the road. We also did See Thru Kayaks at night into the bioluminescent bay which is only a minute away. We needed to keep up with emails while on vacation and had no problem; internet connection was more then adequate. We ate most of our meals at the condo and had the best meats from Annaly farms and Seaside. Other items we found at Plaza West, just be really careful buying meat there! Annaly farms has all kinds of meat and it's super fresh! We had a fantastic meal at Blue Water Terrace on the east side of the island and several great meals at Eat at Cane Bay. We also attended several church services at Southgate Baptist Church also on the east side. Great people and great preaching!! We really don't think there's a better place to stay on the island!"
