Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Little Cayman - Beachcombers' Paradise

Newly Renovated 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 9, Secluded Sand Beach!

BEACHCOMBERS' PARADISE: Enjoy spectacular sea views from our recently renovated fully furnished secluded beachfront house. This 4 bedroom single story 2000 square ft. ranch style house is situated just 40 feet from the water’s edge on a secluded reef protected sand beach. This rare getaway is all about relaxation, tranquility and the ultimate in privacy, yet water adventures are footsteps away. The home is located on the north shore of Little Cayman in the center of Mary's Bay less than 1/2 mile west of Mary's Cut. Our reef is only a 100 yard swim from our beach. You can enjoy miles of private walks on isolated sand beaches stretching west. You can also snorkel and fish right from the beach.

FREE WI-FI AND PHONE SERVICE: Rates include FREE Wi-Fi internet, local land line phone service and Magic Jack phone service for FREE long distance to the US and Canada. Your friends, relatives and business associates back in the US can also call the house toll free from the US. So even though you are AWAY FROM IT ALL you can still be in touch and conduct business if you wish. There is basic ROKU 3 internet TV service that can be viewed on the new a Samsung 32' HDTV (2/2015) with DVD player. There is also a stereo with Bose speaker you can play your music from your iphone or other portal device.

LICENSED BY THE CAYMAN ISLANDS DEPARTMENT OF TOURISM and PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED AND MAINTAINED: This property is licensed as a class A tourist accommodation by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. Although we (the owners) handle all bookings, Beachcomber’s Paradise is professionally maintained by Blossom Property Management which is headed by Marc Pothier. Marc has decades of resort and vacation property experience in the Caribbean and has been the manager of the Paradise Villas resort on Little Cayman for the past 16 years. Upon arrival, you will be met at the airport and transported to the house for an orientation. On your departure you will be taken back to the airport. Marc and his team are also on island and available 24/7 if and when needed.

THE 'FRIENDLIEST' ISLAND: Little Cayman is best known for its diving, fishing, snorkeling, and internationally protected bird sanctuaries. Jacques Cousteau rated the Bloody Bay dive site on the north west end as his #3 best dive site in the world! The Cayman Islands have also been rated as the friendliest place in the world to visit by Forbes Magazine. Little Cayman Island lies 85 miles east of Grand Cayman, 450 miles south of Miami and 120 miles south of Cuba. The weather from December through May is consistent and reliable, averaging to 80 to 85 degrees with nice island breezes. The island is only 1 mile wide and 10 miles long and is remarkably undeveloped and under populated. There are only 150 full time residents.

LITTLE CAYMAN DIVING: There are four top notch dive operations with nice boats to choose from on Little Cayman. All are very good. If you want to shore dive you can arrange to rent tanks. Conch Club Divers is independent of any resort and enjoys good reviews. Email them at: ccdivers@candw.ky From US (832) 460 9127 On Island (345) 948 1026 Pirate's Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach resort are the other dive operations. Reservations and advanced booking is recommended for all diving.

Diving Highlights:

1. World famous Bloody Bay Wall Marine Park with magnificent wall diving.

2. Turtles, Spotted Eagle Rays, Reef Sharks, Nassau Groupers, Moray Eels, Stingrays, Schools of Horse-Eye Jacks, Barracuda, Seahorses and much more!

3. 100's of different hard and soft corals and over 500 types of fish.

4. Incredible visibility & usually 100 to 150 feet, with little or no current.

5. Warm water... Winter 78 to 80 (F), Summer 82 to 86 (F).

TRANSPORTATION AND VEHICLE RENTAL: The home is located 7 miles from Blossom Village and the airport. There is NO public transportation on Little Cayman. Transportation from the airport on your arrival date and back to the airport on your departure date are included in the rates. You will need to rent scooters or a rental car for the rest of your stay----bicycling the 7 miles each way to and from Blossom Village, shopping and the restaurants is not recommended except for the most adventuresome and athletic visitors. There are two car rental companies on Little Cayman Island: We recommend McLaughlin Rentals run by Carla Reid phone: (345) 948 1000 or email littlcay@candw.ky--they also rent scooters. Bruce Miller aka 'Scooter Bruce' (345) 916 4971 rents scooters too, but only in the high season and he delivers scooters to you.

BICYCLE RENTAL: Email Marc Pothier for pricing and reservations. Delivery of bicycles to the house is available.

FISHING: On a fishing charter, the catch could be tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, grouper, snapper, kingfish and the occasional sailfish depending on the season and what you’re targeting. Fly fishing for bonefish, tarpon, and permit in the shallow waters and inland brackish lakes is also popular. There are charters available for blue water-deep sea fishing as well as guides for fly fishing. Call or email us for information, pricing and recommendations.

RESTAURANTS: There are 5 good restaurants on the island, each associated with the five resorts on the island. Prices range from moderate: Hungry Iguana and Beach Bum Cafe to expensive: Pirates' Point, Southern Cross and Little Cayman Beach Resort.

GETTING THERE. You will first need to fly to Grand Cayman which most major carriers service. From Grand your only option is to take a 25 minute (90 mile) flight on Cayman Airways to Little Cayman which is $151.00 USD for a round trip ticket. We recommend that you book a 2 hour layover on Grand so you can be sure to make the Cayman Airways flight to Little Cayman if your flight to Grand is delayed.

You will not be disappointed in our home and accommodations and Little Cayman Island as a memorable getaway!

Warm Regards,

Kammy and Brian

About Brian Essi

Being avid divers, snorkelers, beachcombers, and fisherman/fishing woman, we love getting away from it all and back to nature. All three of our children are also divers and love the water.

Brian Essi purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Essi chose Little Cayman

After decades of traveling and diving throughout the Caribbean, we found that when we returned to many places years later, they were somewhat ruined by high rises and too many tourists. Little Cayman is in a time warp but still has most of the amenities of more developed places. We chose Little Cayman Island for a number of reasons. 1. Great diving, fishing, snorkeling and beach-combing. 2. The island is clean, well preserved and underdeveloped--no large resorts and no cruise ships. 3. No crime: there is law and order here and a good government---very safe--also, medical services on island and a world class hospital close by on Grand Cayman. 4. Our house is on the quite side of the island and its like having miles of sand beach all to ourselves yet we can go to the restaurants if we don't feel like cooking.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful, peaceful, safe and remote. Everyone who lives, works and visits here is genuinely happy to be here. How refreshing and unique is that from what you may experience elsewhere.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful vacation for ten nights at beachcombers paradise. The house was very comfortable and the decor was well done. We enjoyed cooking gourmet dinners with their full kitchen in the evenings listening to our music through his Bose system. The ocean view from most of the rooms in the house was very relaxing. We particularly enjoyed lounging in the sun room reading the many coral reef and fish books available. At night we would dine outside and then stare into the stary sky naming all the constellations. The stars were incredible.. Some of the best snorkeling we had on the island is right behind the house. I caught several bonefish right behind the house on my fly rod. The diving with conch club divers was exceptional diving, some of the best I've had in the carribean and we've been everywhere. We would definitely stay there again as you definitely have more privacy in this home and for the cost it's the best deal on the island.

  • 5 of 5

There really aren't words to describe the beauty surrounding this property. The view from the front deck makes you feel like you are living in a postcard picture. The house itself is amazing - we like to think of ourselves as foodies and this kitchen suited us to a tee. Between enjoying the sunset every night and making use of all the gadgets in the kitchen we never went out for dinner. We sipped a cocktail and ate dinner on the deck every night with an amazing sunset view. (Still haven't seen a green flash!) Snorkeling right off the beach in front of the house was superlative and one day we got brave enough to snorkle the wall at Jackson Point. That shade of blue that one experiences when the wall is in view is indescribable. It was some of the best snorkeling we have ever experienced. The island itself is delightful. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. We took all the hiking trails and kayaked to Owen Island. We took long beach walks, snorkeled, and swam every day. This is the perfect property for anyone who enjoys the outdoors - anything from birdwatching to '"fishwatching"! We would highly recommend visiting the little Baptist Church service on Sunday morning.

The property owners have taken great care to insure that this property is perfect for a beach vacation. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Perfect weather...perfect snorkelling....perfect seclusion....perfect accommodation !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our experience...the weather, the beach, the island, the water and the accommodations ! The residence is airy and bright and perfect for beach and water ( snorkelling ) activity ! We loved the view from the deck, watching the waves while sipping wine and enjoying mid-day snacks. Our daily beach walks were a delight. Caught a lobster at 1pm , 100 yards from the house and enjoyed a wonderful lobster dinner at 8 pm !! Awesome ! We enjoyed kayaking right in front of the house and at Southern Cross beach around Owen Island . House is perfectly positioned for seclusion and accessibility to other parts of the island...we visited the museum, the National Trust House and the CCMI and snorkelled at Jacksons' Bight and Point o' Sand...all were excellent but the daily snorkelling right in front of the house was as good as anywhere...we saw manta rays,skates,conch , lionfish , scorpionfish, starfish , lobsters and a myriad of schools of fish directly in front of the house...after dark we enjoyed preparing our dinner in the well appointed, roomy kitchen while catching up on the news of the world on our tablet through the Wifi with the sound of the waves and the tropical breezes washing over us...tremendous....master bedroom was fantastic with spacious ensuite bathroom and gorgeous morning sunrises over the beach viewed from bed...will definately seek to return and would love to bring friends and family with us...Brian was very helpful and accommodating for all aspects of our stay

Private island escape - great views- total seclusion

  • 5 of 5

The North Shore house is a fantastic property for anybody looking to leave the world behind. The owner Brian, goes out of his way to ensure you have a great stay. With amazing ocean views, an open floor plan, and plenty of indoor and outdoor space, it makes a perfect getaway for the outdoor-watersport types who still want creature comforts (ac, water, wifi etc.). The beach is a mix of sand and sections of limestone with easy access to protected shallows. The home is in the least developed part of the least populated island in The Cayman Islands - 150 miles from any major civilization, and hundreds of miles from any other shore. The seclusion enables a level of serenity you will not find in the traffic and hustle on Grand. For people planning on the LCI 4 day intense diving retreat, be advised that you are 7 miles from the dive operators who leave from the other side of the island. Thus, logistics can be an issue for those who only care about diving and not relaxing. I would stay there again, but I would want to stay for at least a week to get into the island mode!
