Nestled like a jewel in rural Bodden Town on Grand Cayman Island , the Turtle Nest Inn and Condos has been our respite for five years. Having lived world-wide for over 40 years courtesy of a Navy career, travel is second nature to us. We’ve stayed on nearly all the islands in the Caribbean (NO cruise ships!) and Grand Cayman keeps beckoning.
When Seven Mile Beach lost its charm due to crowding, tourist demolished reefs and all the ambiance of a mosh pit, we found our February paradise at Turtle Nest Inn.
We are retired and are older but we have been surrounded by newlyweds, “30 somethings” with babies and a whole rainbow of people seeking pure relaxation in a pristine environment.
Imagine the sound of the surf, sliding into flip-flops, walking to brisk tropical breezes and walking the beach. Alone. Or together. Not another person in sight and a horizon devoid of care.
The staff at TNI is precise, discreet and all-caring. We chose to be “green” and asked that our towels and sheets be changed at our discretion.
Because the Inn is small and the condos few, it is common for friendships to bloom and though we still enjoy seeing annual “Nesters” each year and we frequently e-mail others, there is no pressure to socialize.
Looking for fine dining? Be prepared to drive, but for great local fare visit the Seaside Paradise Café within walking distance. Everything comes with red beans and rice, but I love the goat meat or ox-tail with rice only. Yummy!!
Bottom line, we’ve already reserved apartment number 8 in the Inn for the month of February 2010.
