Our family of 6 adults and 4 children ages 10, 6, 5 and 2, spent ten wonderful days in this home. The kitchen was ideal for fixing large meals. The cabinets are fully stocked with cookware, utensils and plenty of dishes for all ages and meal types. Housekeeping came daily to allow us to truly "vacation" and not have to worry about daily chores. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms are spacious. The play room was a hit with the grandchildren. The pools were perfect for our different ages and together with the nearby beach and sand plenty of outdoor play was happening. The snorkeling off the back patio was great for the adults. This house is located about mid island so getting to places on the island was easy.
The rental / reservation arrangements were easy to make and the manager, Sandy, was a jewel. She took wonderful care of our family to make sure we had all we needed or wanted in a vacation home. We will be back. (Thank you, Sandy, for making our stay so wonderful.)
This house was immaculate! It slept our group of 23 without feeling like we were on top of each other. The pool and views were amazing! The beach was literally steps from the back door. House keeping was included and we never had to lift a finger. Sandy, the owner, was extremely helpful and went above and beyond her duties for us! This beach home would be great for large family gatherings, work retreats, etc. We will definitely visit again!
Sprat Bay Villa is as gorgeous as the posted photos. We were a family group that included my husband, our adult children and their spouses and our 13 grandchildren whose ages ranged from 1 to 14 years old. The villa was perfect for our 1-week vacation. Every family had their own bedroom with many sleeping options and lots of space. The kitchen was used a lot and the huge refrigerator and freezer appreciated. The built-in, separate ice maker and water cooler were great added amenities. The huge rec room was enjoyed by all. There were so many options with a pool/air hockey table, ping-pong table, and foosball. The older grandkids really had a fun bedroom!
The backyard and beach were wonderful. The kids (and adults) spent hours exploring the tidepools finding baby black urchins the size of a thumbnail under rocks, eels and even a serpent starfish! The paddle boards and kayaks were enjoyed but it was a windy week. Our youngest grandkids loved the wading pool and playset. Snorkeling was good. The beach and lawn were kept raked and the patio swept of sand regularly. The hammock was so relaxing, the sunrise views were perfect, and it was exciting to see the neighbors kite surfing. It was an easy decision to remain at the villa for our family portrait session.
We were amazed at the numerous sets of snorkels, fins, and 8 lifejackets of various sizes hanging on a rack. There were a couple of baskets of beach toys plus several pool toys. A fishing pole and tackle box as well as a kite were included. There were numerous ping pong balls so the extra we bought were not needed. There were stacks of beach and bath towels. The kitchen was even supplied with a set of plastic dishes just for kids. The attention to details was appreciated.
Sandy Whittaker, the manager, was efficient and pleasant from the time of our booking to the completion of our vacation. She responded quickly to my emails and kindly answered phone calls. Sandy stopped by several occasions during the week to answer any questions that we may have had.
The villa was ideally located. It was only 15 minutes from the airport and about 10 to 15 minutes from Spott’s Beach for snorkeling with turtles and to Smith Cove for jumping from a low cliff into a clear pool of water and easy snorkeling. Harley’s, a large supermarket, and several other stores are several minutes away.
Other not to be missed spots on the island were Stingray City (Captain Bryan’s was a great company), the turtle farm, Starfish Beach and Sunset Divers. We feel so blessed and thankful to our Lord for the many family memories we were able to share at Sprat Villa and in Grand Cayman
We just came back from our trip to Grand Cayman
Sprat Bay Villa was everything they say it is and more
There was 15 of us and could easily had more one bedroom was left empty
Sandy can’t do enough for you she was always stopping in to make sure we had everything we needed
I would differently recommend this villa
I reckon the villa was recently furnished or very well looked after because everything was in mint condition! We were seriously impressed with how well equipped this place was.
I stayed here the first week of december and had the best time! My family and I have been visiting Cayman Islands for the last decade and this year we wanted to make a change and go as a large group. So it was my family and four of our close friends with their families. The villa ended up being so reasonably priced per person. We looked around Southsound and compared to elsewhere it was the most affordable and beautiful choice. So definitely would recommend for large groups!
The villa had a private beach, pool and garden. Also daily maid service! We spent all day using the snorkels, kayak and paddle boards which were on the property. We also enjoyed the occasional table tennis on lazy afternoons. It was my son's birthday and Mrs. Sandy kindly helped me out with arranging an amazing day at Stingray City. She also gave tips on where to dine and we loved Calypso and Blue Cilantro! So all in all a big YES!
