“Perfect Vacation in Grand Cayman”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

We were a bit skeptical given the lack of reviews and a few mixed reviews of this property, however our fears were unfounded given this beautiful property in Grand Cayman. We travel extensively and have stayed in villas in Barbados and St Lucia and found this property to be an excellent choice.

The house is laid out perfectly for large families. We loved the four bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. We found the needed privacy and room to "stretch out". The kitchen is well equipped and the little details (ice maker, coffee maker, blender) worked out great. What is not shown, is that the house is nicely set back from the street so you do not hear any noise from the road. (Other north shore properties are often right on the road!) The house also has no real neighbors; the nearest house is ~100 meters away so you truly feel secluded.

The ocean front location is exquisite. We swam several times in the ocean. While not a "white sand bottom", it was a great place to take a swim and fine with younger children. The pool was a highlight. It is of a good size and we spent many hours in it. It has a light for at night.

We also loved the location. The North Shore is wonderful. You have enough restaurant choices (e.g. Rum Point, Italian Kitchen, Over the Edge, Bombay Chopsticks, etc.) but aren't dealing the cruise ships, traffic, etc.

Many thanks for a great vacation. We'll certainly be back!

“Nice, but needs some upkeep”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

This is a nice rental that is spacious so don't get me wrong it is nice, but if your going to call your house a luxury 4.5-5 star it needs to be better.

The house is nice with 3 good sized bedrooms and a master suite upstairs. The kitchen is also nice w/ granite counter tops.

Some issues: beach was Absolutly filthy and was dirty when we arrived on Friday and never cleaned for the 7 days we were there. The houses next door had a clean beach so I know it can be done.

Multiple ripped screens.
Pool lights never worked. We made two phone calls and maintenance man came and we finally gave up after multiple attempts.
VoIP phone worked great for 3 days. Stopped working and we told mantenance man but didn't get fixed for remainder of last 4 days.

Honestly if I come back to GC I would stay somewhere else as I'm willing to pay more for better quality.

Thank you very much for your feedback on the Parrot-ise oceanfront villa in Cayman Kai, Grand Cayman. This is one of our most popular rentals, and the owners take great care in maintaining this home to be not only immaculate, but also well cared for. The owners regularly fly to Grand Cayman from their US home every other month to care for the property.

I have learned that during your stay, Roland Pouchie the long time property manager (and one of the best on island) was called off island for a family emergency. Unfortunately the owners nor we (CaymanVacation.com) were aware he was away.

The beach at Parrot-ise is always cleaned before guests arrive, and we apologize that it wasn't for your visit.

The screens, pool light and VOIP phone have all been repaired.

As the long time travel specialist for Parrot-ise, had we been notified of these issues at the onset of this stay, we would have taken immediate steps to rectify the issues. We only learned of these after the stay was completed and this review was posted.

Thanks again for the constructive input.

“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Have to admit I was a little worried since the last review was more than 2 years old. If you are a review crazy person like me let me calm your nerves. First the house is great. We were 3 couples with 2 small children. Having 3 ocean front rooms made it a real treat so everyone could enjoy. We spent most of the time on the porch which is screened in. They have a outdoor BBQ and really cool tiki hut however its behind the garage with no ocean views so we never used it. I'm guessing because of wind or costal commission. Anyways kind of a waste in my opinion. The beach was clean in front of our house however some areas can get a little nasty down the beach. The water in front of the house is very shallow so don't expect to snorkel unless you make it past the breakers. I did however find a few conch and made some great conch fritters with the help of the property manager who came by. His name I cant remember but was super nice and everyone enjoyed. In the end I would come back 100%.

Thanks so much for your great review. Parrot-ise is one of our most popular private villa choices.

The beaches along the North shore of Grand Cayman do get more of their fair share of debris from the cruise ships (shame on them), however the beaches along Parrot-ise are cleaned on a weekly basis and groomed for each guests arrival.

Thanks for allowing us to assist you with your accommodations on Grand Cayman!

Best regards,
