This property does look wonderful, but I've found it literally impossible to get in contact with anyone there to make a reservation for this summer. I've tried three emails, three Skype chats, an instant message, and phone calls. I even tried to track down the owners, Harvey and Betty Stephenson, on Facebook to see if I could find someone to...

I traveled on my own to Grand Cayman Island last January and loved staying at The Retreat Lookout. I was made to feel like family. Izona, Betty, Harvey and Lisa went out of their way to make sure all my needs were met. They went up and above the regular expectations of a Bed and Breakfast. The food was excellent-... More

We stayed at the Retreat at Lookout in March this year. We had a wonderful week there. Izona made our stay there perfect! Such a sweet and hardworking person. I would love to go back next year..........but I have sent four email messages for reservations. It's been over two weeks and still no answer. We found such a great deal... More

This is a perfect place to be we only spent one night but it was great. We spent the rest of our trip at the Ritz Carlton which is very nice on 7 mile beach. More than once we thought it would have been nice to stay at the Retreat longer. Breakfast was fabulous! The owners and staff were as... More

Just returned from a 2-night stay at The Retreat at Lookout Farms and wanted to extend a big thanks to the great staff who hosted us and share our experience with future travelers. The highlight was definitely the staff. Lisa booked the room for us and was extremely attentive, responsive, and friendly during the whole reservation process. She took the... More

I found this place on Trip Advisor. It is a great place to stay. It is on the east end of Grand Cayman, away from the hustle and bustle of the west end. It has 6 rooms, air conditioned, cable TV, a swimming pool, a goat farm where one can pet the goats (it is on a working farm). The... More

I returned to the R@L this last April, and did I love it! My first trip was in January of 2011 and this time, I brought my parents and sister along. Just when I think no one else can love it as much as I could... they did! Bodden Town is a sleepy local town, which is perfect for those... More

Bodden Town is equidistant from the main attractions scattered across Grand Cayman, making it a great base for those with a rental car who are looking for something quieter than a high-density beach resort. The Retreat provided very comfortable accommodations. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, while the en-suite bathroom was well appointed, and stocked with locally made... More

This retreat was a great find on Grand Cayman! The Retreat is located on a country property, with a swimming pool, away from the hub-bub of the beach/town life. A car is a must if you stay here. The rooms were compact, clean and quiet with comfy beds, a nice bathroom, and good a/c. There is a pool & lovely... More

We had a wonderful time at The Retreat at Lookout! Natalie and Izona met us in the driveway and continued to be attentive to us, our desires and our needs for the duration of our comfortable stay.
