July 10-17 2013 This was our first trip to Grand Cayman

We just wanted to add a quick review and pictures of Unit 8 at The London House. Check in was a breeze. Both Allison and Dominique were there and very friendly and efficient. We were traveling with another couple and we both checked in in less than 10 min. We were given our keys and pertinent information about the resort and we were off to explore. Andy's car rental only gave us one car key so we went to Kirks Hardware Store and had a extra room and car key made. ( about $5 USD for both) That way our friends could use the car without having to come find us and get the car key.
When we got in our room I was concerned that the AC was not going to be cold enough, but it took about 6 hours and the room had cooled down to a nice 70. They do not run the air when the rooms are not occupied. Unit 8, or better known as the Honeymoon Suite, is facing the beach and you get NO road noise or noise from other units. It is on the end with no unit above it. The other couple we traveled with had unit 14 on the 2nd floor and heard some road noise and noise next door, but not enough to bother them. We really loved unit 8 but be aware it is the smallest 1 bedroom at London House. It is a charming place with a cozy feel. One interesting thing we did find was a guest book signed by those who had stayed there. The comments by the guests gave wonderful suggestions on things to do and places to eat. Adorning the walls are many lovely works by the owner's daughter who is a wonderful artist. We ended up buying one of her prints. The bathroom and kitchen are very small, but adequate. The kinged sized bed was very comfortable and the couch is a pullout. However anymore than 2 people would be too crowded. The family/dining area is fairly large. The kitchen was stocked with lots of pots, pans and utensils for cooking. The only thing I would bring for the kitchen is your favorite spices. They did have salt and pepper; soap for the dishwasher was included but not laundry soap. You can get ANYTHING you need at either Fosters or Kirks both within about 5 min from London House. We rented a car for the week and drove around the island one day & to Georgetown just about every day; sometimes twice a day; we used about $50 USD in gas. The view is what makes Unit 8 great! We would have coffee out there every morning. You are just a few steps away from the most beautiful beach on the island. The one thing about London House is that there are no umbrellas on the beach. The reason is that you don't need them. If you don't want to be in the sun you just pull your lounge chair up on the beach and under one of the many trees that provide shade. The single hammock right off the patio of Unit 8 is a great place to escape the sun. We also enjoyed the grills located on the grounds next to the pool. There are 2 gas grills and 2 charcoal grills. We cooked 3 meals on the them and they worked great. Do note that many other guests used them as well but we never had to wait. There are tables out by the pool where you can eat. Next to the pool and grill area there is a "Hammock Hut" with numerous hammocks to enjoy. A great place to read a book or take a quick nap.
We had such a good time we booked the Penthouse for Easter 2014 only 10 days after we got home. We are looking forward to another great and relaxing vacation.

We stayed at the London House from Aug 5-12th, 2013. It is the Grand Cayman slow season. Rates were half price and unbeatable. We had some trouble with WIFI the first 2 days, but found out they had just had a few hiccups in upgrading to fiber. Perfect once fixed and we had WIFI to the waterline!

London House is a smaller older property, but it has been beautifully remodeled. The rates were unbeatable, AND London House has the most beautiful and perfect piece of 7 mile beach- no crowds, no fighting for chairs or hammocks, ample shade trees if you want shade, and endless sunshine! Allison was wonderful to work with and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We've been to Grand Cayman before during high season, and will now only go back in August, since it was just a couple hundred extra in hurricane insurance, but SO worth the more competitive rates and the lack of crowds. The kids came with us this time, and they LOVED it! Best vacation EVER! Highlight of the trip was a 9PM walk on the beach we took one evening, only to stumble upon an enormous wild Green Sea Turtle laying her eggs on the beach- just 1/4 mile from London House. No one else was around anywhere- it's like she did that just for the four of us- a once in a lifetime!

We loved London House and will definitely be back!

No need to go to Australia just come to GC and stay at the London House! Honestly if it wasn't for the road (all seven mile beach condos/hotels are on the road) this would come close. If you have never been to the island seven mile beach is a must stay and you have to stay ON the beach. It makes a big difference. The London House is so nice, small and quiet and it is right on the beach. We stayed in a garden/ocean view but for the money I wouldn't pay for the better view as we were never in the room really. All the rooms (very big condos I should say) are steps from the beach too. Here is a tip, set up breakfast for your spouce ON the beach one morning. Big points! As for restaurants within walking distance we walked (wife 2 kids 10, 12) every night to either the Tiki or the restaurant next door. A very doable walk and very nice. Here is another tip - eat in the condo and just go there for drinks and deserts. The properties next door are private so the beach is very quiet. The snorkeling in front of the condo has no reef (mostly sand which is really nice to not worry about walking on) but every time I went out maybe 100 yards I would see something worth taking a picture of. I would snorkel around and find something interesting and then call the kids out to see it while they were playing on the beach. Turtles, rays, weird fish every day almost. octopus one day. Near shore there are lots of little fish the kids can look at on their own, next door to the left they built a pile of coral shaped in a circle with lots of fish. Domonique the office manager got us a paddle board for 24 hours for the almost the same price the cruise company places charge for a hour. My pet peeve in hotels is the AC. No problem here, make it as cold as u want. Cool place.

Room Tip: save the money and stay in 9, 10, 11 not a great ocean view but you don't need it just walk outside.

One of my favorite places to stay in Grand Cayman. I have been visiting the Caymans since 1991 and this place is an ideal location to be away from the bustle from the south and the tourists coming in off the boats. It's peaceful and quiet with very pleasant staff. Dominique is over the top handling any questions or needs and we felt at home in paradise. We are snorkelers/divers and found we could snorkel all up and down the area here without much trouble (wave runners, water skiing...the activities that can put snorkelers in danger) on a beautiful, smooth, clear beach. This beach is one of my favorite in the world. The London House has a hammock cabana, where you can read and relax during the random rain showers. Most prepare many meals here so the outdoor grills are a plus. There are on-demand water heaters in each condo, so hot water is never a problem. The London House is one of the best on the island!

After a rocky start due to arriving later than expected on a Sunday night and finding the managers phone out of service, we were greeted by other guests and helped to contact Dominique using their phone. The first night we stayed in Unit 2 on the ground level and found it quite acceptable. The next morning we were given the opportunity to check out a second floor unit with balcony. My grandkids were immediately sold on the idea of switching units and we all loved the views from our balcony. ( The views from unit 2 were also good we would have been quite happy to stay there.)
The beach at London House is one of the best sections of 7mile beach and has an abundance of shade when you need a break from the sun.
Even though the calm, crystal clear ocean was a huge draw for the family, we also managed to fit in other activities. Swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin cove, playing with the sea turtles at the turtle farm and scuba diving at Cobalt Coast were just a few of our favorite adventures just a short drive from London House. Captain Marvin's also picked us up at our door for a great afternoon trip to Stingray City to swim with the rays. My grandkids loved the closeup experience of playing with the stingrays and snorkeling the reef and coral gardens.
Had a great dinner at the Wharf and then joined in the feeding of the Tarpons.
Also recommend the Sunshine Grill for great burgers and Fish tacos.
No dining experience this trip topped the meals had at the Cracked Conch last time in Cayman.
Condo's unit had great kitchen and all amenities. Washer/dryer were a great plus for us.
Definitely will come back to London House.........Thanks to all there. We didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: All units have views of the beach/ocean/pool. I would probably request units 17-21 on future trips. I think they have the best views of the ocean and beach. I wouldn't hesitate staying in a ground floor unit though.
