Private villas, beach houses & cottages hold the key to authentic Caymanian lifestyle

Up to 100 private villas, beach houses and traditional Caymanian cottages dotted around the islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are available for the first time through a UK villa specialist, Worldwide Dream Villas & Holidays.

The properties are possibly the Caribbean country’s best kept secret, mostly located in peaceful and undeveloped spots. Ranging from six bedroom family homes furnished with antiques and works of art opening onto infinity pools with glorious views over the Caribbean sea, to traditional beachfront Caymanian cottages surrounded by sea grape trees and sugar white sand, they are perfect for families, couples and groups of friends.

Authentic Caymanian lifestyle is best experienced by staying in a private home. While this is partly due to the country’s cosmopolitan culture and unintimidating society, it isalso thanks to the straightforward driving, friendly, welcoming locals and world-class infrastructure which make Cayman one of the easiest of all Caribbeancountries in which to enjoy self-catering accommodation.

PeaseBay House is one of the most recent villas to become available for rental, and possibly the most magnificent to be found throughout the islands. Quietly located on the south shore of Grand Cayman, around 20 minutes drive from SevenMileBeach, the private family home is testament to the good taste of its owners. Sleeping up to twelve, with a separate nursery, playroom, stunning dining room, 40 foot ‘great room’, huge swimming pool and private tennis court in what can only be described as a commandingbeachfront setting in a tranquil part of the island, it would more than satisfy the most discerning and exacting of clientele.

Little Cayman Cottage and Blossom Village Cottage, the latter dating fromcirca 1900, can be found tucked away on the paradise island of Little Cayman (population less than 150). Both are simple but charming cottages opening on to white sand, where sea grapes and palm trees sway in the breeze and turquoise waves lap at the shore. Equipped with television, CD, DVD and simple Caribbean furniture, bicycles and a couple of hammocks, either one can be the ultimate Caribbean hideaway for two or – as described by ‘Frommers’ – “the place in which to write the next great American novel.”

The rates of the villas vary from $US250 to US$1700 per night with discounted monthly rates.Even the most opulent can represent exceptionally good value for large parties of up to 12, or for those looking for a long term stay, especially in low or shoulder season, and for groups of friends and family who may wish to book a villa for overlapping weeks and share the rental between them. Many have separate units, ideal for teenage children. Almost all are oceanfront, and extremely well equipped, with maid service if required.

Worldwide Dream Villas is a villa specialist with a growing portfolio ofluxury properties on the islands. Director Linda France comments: "There is a perception that the Cayman Islandsare solely for the reserve of those seeking superb diving facilities and five star resorts. Away from SevenMileBeach, whichprovides the glitz that some holidaymakers seek, families and couples alikecan find wonderful peace,quiet and relaxation in really outstanding qualityvilla properties in gloriously undeveloped parts of the islands. I have no doubt that thedestinationwill become increasingly popular when holidaymakersdiscoverthe range, quality and diversity of private accommodation.”
