“Unbelievable Vacation Rental”

We just returned from The Shellen and had the best family vacation ever! The house is perfect, very spacious (the pictures do not do it justice) and everything worked great! The pool and hot tub were incredible along with a view to die for! We had all adults over 26 and there was something for all of us! We snorkeled everyday right outside of the Shellen and it was beautiful! We couldn't get enough pics on our Go Pro, endless variety of fish, lobsters, crabs, tarpon, groupers, lion fish, puffer fish, tuna, etc..! We had the beach to ourselves everyday and it is located on a barrier reef that is breathe taking, you can even stand up 90% of the time which made it easy to snorkel everyday!!! The swimming, wading and snorkeling right off the beach in the back of the house is beyond belief! There is so much to see just in the mangroves around the house too... crabs, lizards, birds, etc. It is located on the East End of the island and is away from the traffic and cruise visitors. The Shellen is close to Rum Point, a small grocery store, fabulous restaurants and bars without the crowds! The manager, Judy, helped with any questions we had and took great care of us! We even had a free rental car through Caymanvillas.com! This is a perfect house on the best side of the island! I could go on about this beautiful home but if you have any questions please ask! The excursions we did were great also and all were close to the house too; boat charter, bioluminescent tour and turtle farm. Don't think twice about this house, it is beautiful!

“Beautiful with some glitches”

We're giving this rental a generous 4 stars. We have stayed other places in Grand Cayman and given 5 stars. Firstly, the house, view, and pool are beautiful. We had issues with no running water two of our 6 days And the water pump constantly running, with a very late response from the management company. This was a major inconvenience for all of us when we couldn't take showers before going out. The house is very private and there are lots of fun finds on the rocky beach. Very relaxing place to stay.
