“Gorgeous house in an ideal location”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017
2
people found this review helpful

The property is gorgeous and located in an ideal location on the island. It perfectly accommodated the nine members of our family who stayed there for five nights.

The house and its grounds feel very private. A long driveway off of Boggy Sand Rd. leads to the property that is surrounded on all sides by tall foliage. As you face the house, two hammocks hang under palms on your left. We spent several evenings playing cornhole there beneath the palms while enjoying sangria and locally brewed beers. On your right is a detached garage where you’ll find snorkeling gear, beach chairs, paddleboards, coolers, and anything else you might need for a day at the beach.

Between the house and the garage you’ll catch a glimpse of the beautiful pool area where you can lounge in a deck chair or enjoy a beverage while floating on an intertube. Behind the pool is an enclosed gazebo where we ate breakfast every morning.

You can enter the house from the pool area, or follow the wrap around porch back to the front door. A security code lets you inside which makes it easy for someone to run back to the house from the beach without having to dig through a beach bag for a key. The front door opens into the dining area/living room, which is a bright, open, clean space. As you walk in, the living room is on your left. There are two large couches there, each of which folds out into a bed with mattresses that were brand new when we arrived. A large smart TV there can be connected to your Netflix account if you are ever inside long enough to use it.

The dining room table is large enough to accommodate 10. It’s set with sea turtle napkin holders and decorated with candles nestled in sea glass. The dining table and the kitchen are separated by a breakfast bar where you can sit and enjoy a drink while providing company for whomever was put in charge of cooking the meal. The kitchen is large with plenty of counter space. Check the cabinets before you run to the grocery store. We were surprised to find several staples stocked that we were able to take off our grocery list. A door in the kitchen opens up into a laundry area overlooking the pool. All the appliances in the kitchen and laundry are very new and high quality.

There is one bedroom and one bathroom on the main floor. The room is smallest of the four, but nice and very comfortable. Upstairs are three more bedrooms. The master has windows overlooking the pool and the front drive. The bed is huge, and very comfortable. There is another smart TV in here that we connected to Netflix to watch episodes of Better Call Saul before we bed. I think each room is outfitted with a similar TV, but I happened to stay in the master, so I know for sure that it has one. The master bath is incredible. It might be what I miss most about this house.

The other two bedrooms upstairs are equally comfortable if not quite as luxurious. There is another bathroom upstairs as well.

The location of the house is maybe its best feature. When I originally started looking for a rental, I was looking for someplace on the beach. If you are in the same position, let me assure you that the distance to the beach is negligible enough to not matter. In my opinion, any perceived advantage a home might have from being beachside, can be countered by its decreased privacy.

The section of seven mile beach that is closest to the house is ideal. You can wade in soft sand out into the clear turquoise water or you can snorkel amongst corral and spot sea turtles and stingrays. Typically most beaches can provide one or the other of these experiences, but not both. This beach just happens to be a perfect meeting of the two.

This area of West Bay is far enough from the resorts that you won’t see large groups of vacationers. You’ll mostly be interacting with locals or folks who own property on the island. Still, you are not far from some of the island’s best restaurants. Heritage Kitchen is just down the road. From where you sit on the beach you can watch as local fishermen come to shore to deliver a catch to the restaurant, and then enjoy it cooked to order half an hour later. Alfresco is also worth checking out. Its patio on the beach is lovely as the sun sets. Calypso Cove is a ten minute drive away and has another lovely patio dining area overlooking a marina.

I can’t say enough about Kathy’s hospitality. She was the perfect host in that we didn’t see her until we needed her, and then suddenly she was there. She was happy to take us out for a paddleboard lesson but just as happy to stay out of the way. If you’re put off by any of the reviews here making it sound like Kathy is consistently hanging around the property, you need not worry. She seems to be very intuitive in the amount of interaction a guest desires, and her main concern is making sure you’re comfortable.

Everything about our stay here was perfect. We can’t wait to return.

We just returned from Clearwater House and I would recommend to anyone! Kathy is a wonderful concierge and makes you feel like you are truly in your home. She welcomed us with a homemade lunch, drove us to restaurants, airport trips, and even made us homemade croissants our last morning. The home is full of amentities like plush towels, Aveda products, anything you forgot she has there for you. The toys, paddle boards, kayaks, snorkel gear, bikes, etc... the list goes on. A quick walk to beach, and a private pool oasis in your own back yard. There is nothing to want for here...Go!

“Awesome Family Vacation”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We have been anxiously anticipating our first trip to Grand Cayman for many months as our familys trip was meant to allow for "blending" opportunities. So it was important to find the right house at the right location. Clearwater could not have been more perfect for us. Every detail of the house was so well thought out: from the abundance of towels to the Sonos audio system and Netflix on every TV to a fully stocked gourmet kitchen and bathrooms complete with body lotion and shampoo. It was clear that Kathy, the owner, was intent on giving her guests a 5 star experience with every need anticipated and met. When we arrived, we were greeted by Kathy and her daughter Emily with a full pitcher of homemade mojitos. She encouraged us to get comfortable and gave us a quick explanation of the house and surroundings. A quick trip to the market and we were off to explore the grounds and the beach. As beautiful as the beaches are in the West Bay, with stunning snorkeling and gorgeous sand, it became harder and harder to convince the family to leave the pool and head elsewhere. The pool and surrounding grounds were so well kept and secluded that it felt as if we were totally private. With the outdoor music system, we had our very own atmosphere set to match our many moods. Dinner became the activity we all looked forward to the most, with everyone playing a role in either the prep, cooking or clean up. Our dinners ranged from grilled steak and fish tacos to rice and beans and lasagna. The house performed so well that it felt like home in no time.
But above all of the benefits that came from staying in such a beautiful home was the ability to get to know Kathy and her daughter Emily. They were never intrusive in any way. Instead, they were both incredibly gracious and generous in helping us plan our activities. Kathy  provided guided snorkeling and paddle boarding adventures and helped to organize our excursions. Emily offered to take pictures on our excursions and their dog Franklin quickly became part of the family.
We made so many incredible memories on this trip which could not have been possible without the care of our amazing hosts. Our favorite keepsake is the video that Emily compiled for us. We will treasure these memories and will be forever grateful for our time at Clearwater.

Fred - Thanks so much for the awesome review and noticing the little things we do so that guests will have a comfortable stay and relaxing trip. We love the Sonos system too.
Em and I had so much fun with your group; it was hard to say goodbye. You'll have to tell Gloria that I made Tim the best black beans with her secret spice. I have to get that recipe. We also purchased a new ladder so when you come back it will be a little easier to help de-nutting the coconut trees. Best wishes to you all on the upcoming wedding. Cheers Kathy.

We rented this house with our two teenagers and two other couples. Everyone had plenty of individual space as well as a space for us all gather together. The kitchen was stocked with all the appliances and dishes we needed. We just added groceries. Kathy was the hostess with the mostest and could not have been more helpful with giving us ideas on things to do, directions, and a welcome snack. Definitely a rental I would do again. The house is perfectly situated close to Seven Mile Beach and West Bay. Restaurants and a grocery store close by but the street is quiet and without a lot of traffic.

“Perfect First Time Cayman Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2016 for a stay in July 2016
3
people found this review helpful

This review is written with a bit of a conflict: on one hand, we want to rave about our experience at the Clearwater House; on the other, we don’t want to draw too much attention to it in fear of increasing the demand!

Bottom line, the house is beautiful and has everything you could ask for, but Kathy is what makes the experience go above and beyond. To say she bends over backwards to accommodate her guests is an understatement.

She’s the type of person who you ask where to find a tropical drink served in a coconut and after she calls around to all the local bar and restaurants to find out no one does, you come home to find her cutting the coconuts out of her own trees and cleaning them to bring you fresh coconut water and mai tais served in coconuts!

It’d be easy to describe all the other ways Kathy made our stay wonderful as if it were a uniform approach to each family that rented the home; but it was clear from the beginning she spent the time to learn about our specific interests and reached beyond the minimum to make our stay special.

So instead I’ll point out some of the obvious answers to questions anyone has about staying at an “unknown” rental property.

The pictures on the website do not oversell. This is one of the few times a house exceeds the pictures on their website. The Clearwater House is clean, the décor is modernly beachy, and provides all the amenities you can hope for traveling to any vacation destination.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and travelled with another family of four, all of the kids were ages seven and under and the house more than met our needs.

While Clearwater House is not beach front, by walking only two minutes across the street, you can reach a beautiful private-feeling beach with excellent snorkeling only a few minutes from shore. We also found that by crossing a few rocks, you could reach Cemetery Beach – one of the more popular beaches on the island.

It was our first stay on the island, and it’s interesting to point out we spent some time exploring the island. A few lessons learned.

Do go to the restaurants and bars Kathy recommends. She is not overselling the crab cakes at Calypso Grill. They are unreal.

Before booking ANY snorkeling/sting ray city/starfish point/or anything where you’re “on” the water, ask Kathy first. She’s well connected, and her relationship with Captain Alan not only provides an authentic Caymanian experience, but terrific value.

Do not go to Fosters grocery store around the corner. Spend the extra 10 minutes and go to Kirks.

Eat at Heritage Kitchen down the road. Their grouper, made anyway, is one of the best.

Rent a car, it’s the best way to get around and enjoy the island.

And lastly, having driven through and spent some time in Georgetown and Seven Mile Island - they’re fun to drive through and see, but Boggy Sand Road is the best place on the island to be. The water and sand are beautiful and you get to enjoy the true island feel by just walking across the street and the rest of the island is only a quick drive away.

Have been here for almost 2 weeks and do not want to leave!! It is beautiful ! So quiet and relaxing; love the private pool and gazebo by night! The rooms are beautiful and the furnishings are so pretty. Kathy has not overlooked your every need. The beach is just a short walk away and absolutely breathtaking. Kathy is definitely one of the most gracious hostess I have ever met!
