Our group of 9 had what everyone afterwards described as the perfect family vacation at Kathy's beautiful home in West Bay, just north of Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman.
The house itself was beautiful and very well maintained. The kitchen was huge with tons of counter space and was well-stocked.
Most nights we ate in the verandah next to the pool, a completely screened-in area that was perfect for big family meals outside. The bedrooms were all great, especially the master bedroom, which had a huge walk-in closet and beautiful bathroom.
The pool was a big highlight with all of us, especially the kids, with the ability to swim or do laps next to a soothing waterfall falling into the deep end of the pool.
But the best part of the house is the residential feel of the street and proximity to the beautiful beaches of West Bay, which were more laid-back and peaceful than you would get at a crowded resort on Seven Mile Beach. We took the short 5-10 minute walk every day to West Bay Beach or Cemetery Beach in the other direction and snorkeled, swam, and relaxed for the rest of the day. And Kathy has provided plenty of beach chairs, pool noodles, masks and snorkels, umbrellas, and even a wagon to help you haul everything to the beach.
And if anything ever did go wrong or if there was anything else we needed, Kathy was extremely helpful and responsive.
Kathy's property feels like a home, not a hotel or vacation rental. The amount of attention to detail and thoughtfulness she puts into it makes it easy to settle in and feel like her house is your home away from home.
We all had an incredible time in Grand Cayman thanks to her, and we are all eagerly planning our return!
This is the most amazing, perfect house for a wonderful beach get away. Kathy and Tim are fabulous hosts with lots of helpful suggestions. Kathy even took us out paddle boarding and snorkeling to all of the great local spots. The house is spacious and comfort. It felt just like home. I loved the pool and outdoor sitting areas. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly ever need for the perfect vacation. It even has a basketball goal and hammocks. It is located across the street from the beach where we walked to watch beautiful sunsets while enjoying local drinks. I can't wait to go again!
I typically do not give positive reviews to places we stay as it increases competition for future rentals but this is an exception. A typical day....coffee by the beautiful pool, after breakfast we head to the beach, some of us then swim out to the reef for a +/- hour snorkel. Lunch, several times we went to the local Heritage Kitchen for grouper (excellent). Mid afternoon back to the house and the pool which gets some afternoon shade(good for the kids and all to get out of the sun). The house accommodated 10 of us comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed. With 10 of us the washer & dryer were used daily and the beds were very comfortable. Probably the best feature of all was Kathy, the owner. She will go out of her way to make sure you have a great stay....recommendations for restaurants, Stingray City, shopping.....if you have a question, just ask Kathy. We definitely want to go back
The Clearwater House was quite fabulous and we can't believe we've never been to surely the most fabulous place on earth with water the color of turquoise. My husband and I agree without Kathy the concierge we would not have had the experience we had... from Stingray Island to Turtle Farms to scuba diving to the best local restaurants. 13 of us filled this house comfortably... the best sheets and finest linens... wifi... flat screens in every room. Bathrooms are tiled and each bedroom is a shade of the Caribbean. Gorgeous pool.., outdoor grill in a huge screened in gazebo. A mere 300 feet to a beach where we snorkled and paddle boarded and jet skied. A family vacation for the books. I love the Cayman because of Clearwater House and Kathy!! If you are going go Clearwater.
The house is "classy beach" Pretty and comfortable. No tip-toeing around, afraid you will break something. Fantastic kitchen if you decide to cook.So many great eating places close by you may never use it. All four bedrooms were very nice. I like the first floor one with its own bath and queen bed Perfect for the mobility impaired. I will stay there again. Thank you Tim and Kathy for all your expertise on your "to do" list. '
