Ten days of paradise was unbeatable as my wife and I stayed at Villas Pappagallo on the West End of Grand Cayman. This condo complex is located at the very end of the paved road on the West End, and is a terrific getaway for those who have no desire to deal with 7 mile beach and all of the cruise tourists. We stayed in unit 27 and it was absolutely beautiful, and recently renovated to very high standards.

We came to Grand Cayman to scuba dive, and thoroughly enjoyed our West End experience of local restaurants and beaches. Villas Pappagallo is very close to reasonably priced local restaurants in the Boggy Sands area.

Room tip: All of the rooms have ocean views, but the ones closest to the beach have the best views.

We have stayed at Starfish Villa (Villas Pappagallo) numerous times since 1988. What we found was like having our own private paradise. Located at the northwest end of Grand Cayman, and bordered by a National Park, The beach is well-maintained, very private and peaceful with a beautiful view to the north. The swimming pool is right next to the beach and has also been well-maintained. The condo is very tastefully decorated and has been well maintained throughout the years with several upgrades / updates occurring over the last several years. It is obvious that the owner takes great pride in providing a well-equipped and comfortable home away from home for their guests. You will need your own transportation as it is not located along 7 mile beach and the throng of tourists that populate that area. But that is one of the things we have treasured over the years - a quiet, private paradise for the two of us. We can drive to 7 mile beach if we are so inclined, but we always return to the peace and tranquility of this part of the island. There are many good restaurants at all different price ranges within 10 minutes driving time of the condo but if you want to cook for yourself, the kitchen is well-equipped and the grocery store (Foster's Food Fair) is close by. We strongly recommend this as a destination for anyone looking for their own private, Caribbean getaway.

Room tip: Every condo at Villas Pappagallo has a view to the ocean.

We were very happy with our two-week stay at Island Gem! What a perfect location to spend the holidays.

The condo was well appointed with all the comforts of home. We were happy to have conveniences such as a dishwasher and laundry in the unit – it just made the stay so much easier. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed, and there were plentiful options for making a morning cup of coffee. The bathrooms were nicely done (having two full bathrooms is a bonus), both bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. We had a nice breeze off the water, and never once needed the air conditioning! The views from the balconies were amazing, and the grounds of the condo were well kept with plenty of little creatures (crabs, small lizards and even a few big iguanas) to keep our son entertained.

We spent nearly every morning walking the beach. We often did a two-mile trip, and only ever saw a handful of people, which makes the beach feel nearly private! One night we saw a sea turtle right off the dock, and snorkeling off the dock we saw numerous fish and even a few Caribbean lobsters!

The island is easily navigated (a rental car is recommended), and we never felt like we had to travel that far for what we needed (groceries or activities). We took two trips to Kaibo and Rum Point, and even those are easy day trips (we highly recommend stopping at Crystal Caves on your way to the East End).

Restaurant options about – with Pappagallos, Catch and Calypso being close and outstanding!

Couldn’t be happier with our choice to spend Christmas in the Caribbean! Thanks Lee!

What a wonderful week! If I could say what I already miss the most, it would be waking up to what must be the most spectacular view in the complex. We did some touring around the island, and I am not sure there is a better view. The beach is wonderfully private and was very quiet (we were visiting at the end of November).

I was travelling with my husband and we were looking for a quiet and relaxing break. This was our first trip to Grand Cayman and it turned out to be ideal for a vacation rental. Several of the local supermarkets were nicer than back in Toronto, so we were able to find anything we could want to get our days started.

Because Villas Pappagallo is at one end of the island, we were worried about the drive, but Grand Cayman is remarkably compact. The drive is only about 15 minutes and there are LOTS of signs directing you to Villas Pappagallo.

On arrival, unit 41 was spectacularly clean and remarkably spacious. It was a 30℃ day outside, and the air conditioning works well throughout. It looks like the two bathrooms were updated very recently; everything worked, and it looked great. The two-floor arrangement made it feel, somehow, more like home; with the master bedroom over the main living area, it shares the same amazing view of the pool and the beach.

The kitchen was nicely appointed and we were surprised to have a dishwasher. Having a washer and dryer was very convenient too. My husband asked me to add that the unit has the fastest internet that he has ever had in a rental--anywhere.

Lee provided us with lots of information prior to our arrival. We took her advice on car rental, dining and food shopping which meant we had more time to explore.

The one bit of advice I would give to anyone visiting is to bring water shoes if you are going to go into the ocean. Unlike other islands I have visited, there is more coral and sea-grass close to the shore. We went to several beaches and found that to be the case. We found Governors Beach the best choice for enjoying the water without any rocky surprises.

If you like Jamaican patties, we vote for the Tastee Patties available at the Tortuga Rum Factory in Georgetown. We tried several restaurants, but if you like something that is very well executed, we did not find better than across the street from the condo at Ristorante Pappagallo.

I am sure we will visit again! The combination of a truly great place to stay, and the incredible convenience of Grand Cayman made for a fantastic stay.
