Beautiful Home/ Bad fuel
The house was everything the website promised . Perfect !
Be careful when putting gasoline in your rental car- we ended up with diesel in our tank on our way to turn the car in at the airport and that is an expensive way to finish your vacation!!
Some highs some lows.
The view was phenomenal but couldn’t really get into the water due to grasses and rocks so a pool was very much missed. The inside is large and the kitchen was very well equipped but the microwave didn’t work (so they have another one on the counter?) and the fan by the stove didn’t work (which leads to a lot of smoke and odors) and a security detector inside kept beeping. We called the management company who came out to fix the detector 5 days into our visit. The Mgmt company fee, by the way, is ridiculous. It’s supposed to give you discounts and high quality bath products. We got 3 small soaps. The pier and shack at the end were delightful and the location is our favorite
Sadly, we cannot do anything about the rough seas that have recently brought in so much sea grass and piled it up on the beach. We’ve had it cleaned repeatedly only to have it right back within a day or two. It does indeed take away from the normally beautiful view. (The last several months have been much worse than we have ever seen!)
We had a major power outage after an electrical storm in November and have been working to get everything repaired...thus the extra microwave on the counter. Not our choice either, but we are doing our best to accommodate guests while we wait for the correct parts to come in.
The exhaust fan was working when we were there in late January, but I will make sure that our property manager follows up on getting that fixed.
I’m sorry it took so long for the security system people to correct the beeping problem.
One way to get to the wonderful snorkeling without having to deal with the seaweed is to use the ladder at the end of the dock (inside the gazebo) and swim right out to the coral outcroppings. It is worth it!
Thank you for your review, and we will continue to work through these issues...except the weather which we haven’t had much luck with!
Went with a group of friends and we loved it!
Private, Clean, Rum Point/North Coast Home
Pictures are very accurate and the home has plenty of amenities, as if you were staying at a friends house. Games, books, extra chairs and everything in the kitchen. The property owners, along with Silver Thatch AND the cleaning lady Chloe, were very personable and helpful! Be aware the north side of the island has plenty of wind so snorkeling off our beach front was not possible. That was strictly due to weather though. With calm/warm weather snorkeling would be possible. Also, FYI, there is a enormous amount of seaweed on the beach, limiting space to lounge or lay out in the sand. The seaweed is piled up along the entire stretch of coast 2 feet high and litter is abundant! Again, nothing against the property, more a public service announcement for the northern part of the island.
Unfortunately it is impossible to contain Mother Nature. Storms in early in mid-Jan came from due north, and brought in seaweed and debris. Normally the weather is from the east and the north side of the island does not have a large seaweed problem.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and the home.
Grand Cayman Villas
Everything was perfect.
It was great to have a few paper products already there, plus extra pillows, beach towels, light switches were labeled and phone numbers for anything we needed. The home is very comfortable and nicely decorated with plenty of space, rooms and bathrooms for everyone.
La isla entera tiene solo 22 millas de ancho de oeste a este, por lo que nunca estará demasiado lejos de cualquier lugar en Gran Caimán. Las casas en Northside ofrecen excelente snorkeling protegido en arrecifes. Las playas en Northside pueden tener mucha arena blanca, pero también pueden ser de guijarros o "arenas" con formaciones rocosas naturales. De cualquier manera, con la abundante vida marina que tenemos en el agua, querrá usar protección para los pies (zapatos o aletas de piscina). Los vientos alisios predominantes del este también hacen que los insectos voladores sean menos molestos, muchas de las casas en Northside ni siquiera necesitan un porche con mosquitero.
En Northside tenemos una escuela primaria, una clínica de salud con servicio de ambulancia, una oficina de correos y una pequeña tienda de comestibles para lo esencial. Más cerca de Old Man Bay está el restaurante Over the Edge, un excelente restaurante informal con buena comida y precios razonables.
Desde el lado norte, es fácil llegar en 10 minutos a Rum Point, así como a 10-15 minutos en automóvil hasta el restaurante The Lighthouse, el restaurante Tukka en el extremo este y los 2 resorts del este: Morritts y The Reef. Ambos complejos ofrecen bares, restaurantes, piscinas, deportes acuáticos, una tienda de comestibles y lugares de comida locales.
