  • Lovely Island Cottage

    "My boyfriend and I visit St John fairly often, and we don't think of the island as a luxury destination - what keeps drawing us back is the simplicity of island life. We enjoy having a place to call home while we're there, and home is exactly what Molly's Cottage felt like when we stayed there last month. Cozy and tastefully decorated, with a great new open concept kitchen. We loved the large screened doors which let in the sunlight, cool breezes, and beautiful views (while keeping out the bugs!). Close to town without being right in it, and convenient to every part of the island. (Definitely recommend renting a jeep to get around and explore this amazing island!). Dining options on St John are excellent, but it was nice to enjoy some dinners at the cottage, too. There are several markets in town, so it's easy to stop and pick up whatever you need on your way back from the beach. The deck overlooking Chocolate Hole Bay is great - we ate breakfast there every morning, and it was the perfect place to relax with a cocktail or a glass of wine after days filled with hiking, paddle boarding, and beach bumming (be sure to use bug spray in the late afternoon/early evening when the no see ums and mosquitoes are fierce!). Being able to walk to the beach was fun - Chocolate Hole isn't the most spectacular beach on the island, but it was so nice to have it right there. Nice strolls in the morning and before dinner, and we did spend one very pleasant afternoon there swimming and beachcombing. The lack of AC was not a problem thanks to the breezes and fans (who wants to listen to a noisy window AC unit anyway - or sleep with the windows closed - when you can be lulled to sleep by the sound of tree frogs, crickets, birds, and waves?!). Having a washer and dryer was convenient. We mostly used the clothes line for drying - those breezes dry laundry in no time! There is good internet connection at the cottage, too. The owner is a pleasure to communicate with, quick to respond to emails and answer questions. We would definitely rent Molly's Cottage again. And we would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a simple, laid back island experience."

  • great find

    "My family rented units 10 and 11 in March. As for the unit, the condo was immaculate and had everything we needed. We stocked up at the local Foster's, which had most of the American brands we are used to, as soon as we arrived. It was great to be able to eat breakfast in and make a lunch to eat out on the beach. The washer/dryer was put to good use and allowed us to pack extremely light. The view from the lanai is gorgeous. As for the complex, it's on the quieter end of 7-mile beach. We enjoyed watching the cruise ships coming and going without ever seeing the crowds. The beach is beautiful and so relaxing. On a calm day, the water is as clear as a swimming pool. We enjoyed some great snorkeling right in front of the condos. The grounds are immaculate. Being that I can't stand dragging sand inside, really appreciated the foot baths outside every door, as well as the constant sweeping/hosing down of the sidewalks and pool area. We didn't find that restaurants were within walking distance, but there are many cab companies and they arrive within minutes of calling them. As for Grand Cayman itself, it's a beautiful, clean island. The natives are all friendly and gracious; they truly seem to want tourists. Also, they don't seem to participate in "island time" as we've experienced elsewhere in the Caribbean. Restaurant service is prompt, taxis are prompt, we had airport transfers that were all early, etc. Would love to go back when time and budget allow!"

  • Awesome townhouse

    "I stayed four nights but I wish I could've stayed longer ! The house is big, clean and modern . The owner did a lovely job, with high-quality, modern finishes that made this unit really exceptional . The townhouse comfortably fits at least 6 adults. Just a short 5-minute ride to the airport and nice local beaches , it was perfectly located. The pool is gorgeous and the barbecue area is cute and nice. - what more could you ask for? I am definitely looking forward for my next stay!"
