Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, Sleeps 18

Crystal Blue is a magnificent, private cliff-edged, gated villa with private pool and stone steps to the water below. Guests will not see another person behind the villa during their stay. The villa offers excellent snorkeling and diving from the back steps, with conch, starfish, lobster, and many other fish species waiting to be discovered! Relax on the oceanfront pool deck and watch the dive boats and fishing boats just off the reef.

Crystal Blue has expansive windows and glass doors to capture the majestic views of the Caribbean Sea from almost every room. Elevated 25 feet above sea level; Crystal Blue is well protected and can enjoy a breeze when air-conditioning is not necessary. Stone terraces and a private gazebo near the pool offer refuge from a hectic vacation pace! Wonderful wedding venue for up to 100 guests.

***Crystal Blue’s Notable Features***

— Walk through the foyer into the huge sunken living area with vaulted ceilings, enormous couches and gorgeous views, all of which lend a big feel to this 7,500 sq ft. oceanfront villa.

— Elevated oceanfront pool surrounded by plenty of outdoor furniture--multiple tables and lounge chairs are available for guests to dine, read and relax while soaking in the views.

— Separate oceanfront TV area off of the dining room and living area offers multiple areas for guest to relax and converse, complete with a Plasma TV and multiple couches!

— Full modern kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, double ovens, stove, coffeemaker and bar seating for 5

— Dining table and breakfast table seat eight and four, respectively

— 7 bedroom suites offer guests tons of space to spread out: 5 kings, 1 queen, and a kids room has 1 bunk bed set and 2 twin day beds.

— Owner also has 2 twin aero-mattresses for smaller children looking to sleep in parents room.

— Ideal private villa for those who don't want to see a soul during their entire stay.

— 5 minutes from grocery store, liquor store and barefoot swimming at two resorts as well as restaurants and bars.

— Excellent wedding venue and can accommodate many guests.

Crystal Blue does not have a sandy beach. There is a sandy beach 5 minutes east at the resorts Morritts and The Reef. If Crystal Blue were located on Sand Point Road in Cayman Kai (perfect white sand beach) it would be twice the rate. This home is for those guests who have a large group, still want a large oceanfront villa but are willing to forgo the private sandy beach in return for saving of $800 - $1,200/day to offset costs for flights, meals and rental cars!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I ran into this property after my initial booking cancelled on me at the last minutes, two days before departure (don't deal with NIkki Ritch AKA Larimar Vacation Rental). The rental agent for this property, Scott, was wonderful. The house is huge. the pictures does not represent how big it is. It is bigger in person both inside and outside in my opinion. It is located in the northside which is about 35 minutes to georgetown and 7 miles beach. Speed limit is lower there, fyi. The house has lot of towels so you don't have to bring them. 5 minutes away from mini market. I would definitely consider coming back to this property if we have a chance to go back here again. Thanks again Scott.

Best House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17, 9 adults, 7 children has been doing a family reunion for the last 16 years in various locations. We all agreed this was our best ever. The house is spacious, updated and accommodated us all comfortably! Having beach towels and pool toys was a real plus...snorkeling was awesome and the privacy away from the crowded beaches made it feel even more special. There is no sandy beach but with the pool for the little ones and snorkeling for the older ones, nobody cared. This place is the best—-we’re talking about returning in the future!

Our family enjoyed this home so much. From the amazing view, comfortable bedrooms, amazing family area and well stocked kitchen. The kids favorite was the pool. The adults favorites were the amazing sunrise & sunset!

We can’t wait to go back again.

Wonderful place to celebrate my retirement with our family of 15!

  • 5 of 5

Crystal Blue is a beautiful home in the quiet East End on the Northern Coast of Grand Cayman. The grounds are well kept and the view is amazing! The location is great for enjoying Rum Point Beach, Star Fish Beach, Morritt's Resort Beach all within a short drive. The layout of the seven bedrooms was perfect for our family as the teenagers slept on one side and could sleep late and the "littles" awoke early and could play without disturbing them. Lots of seating in the dining area and also outside on the pool deck. We enjoyed three meals cooked by Chef Stephanie. The Cayman style fish, barbecued chicken, jerk chicken, rice and beans, mac and cheese, cornbread were all yummy. The kitchen is very functional but could use an update. Roland, the caretaker/manager was very attentive and had the bedroom air conditioner fixed in a timely manner. Scott Naurath was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us helpful information before our arrival. He scheduled a charter boat for us with Captain George to Stingray City. Captain George was awesome and this was a highlight of the week for many. The house was very clean. Having a laundry available was great. Also appreciated the extra beach towels and pool toys that were available to us.

We traveled from Caifornia, New York and Pennsylvania and had a WONDERFUL vacation together. Thank you for sharing your home with our family. We will recommend Crystal Blue to our friends looking for a beautiful home to rent on Grand Cayman.

Undeniable, a wonderful, peaceful piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Scott

Crystal Blue’s house is more than one could expect or ask for; warm and very welcoming right from the gate and throughout the property.

The exterior of the property was well groomed and the view was picturesque; as we spent a lot of time relaxing and taking in the view.

The interior of the property is beautiful and beautifully decorated; we definitely utilized the kitchen which was well layout and met all of our needs.

Undeniable... a wonderful, peaceful piece of heaven! Blue sky, warm sun, cooling breezes and a picture perfect ocean view, I would come back in a heartbeat and recommend Crystal Blue to others as a prim vacation location for large to medium size groups.

My only subjection would be to include a tour package/transportation for those of us who like to be chauffeured around while exploring the Island.

We were very fortunate to meet a wonderful tour company driver name Leonardo Henry; he was very knowledgeable of the Island and it's history. Leonardo introduced us to several local restaurants Vivian Kitchen, Over the Edge, Heritage Kitchen and Grand Old House Cayman, the food was fantastic service was great. We also went to the Local fish Market and he assisted us with selecting a local for the Island that was the fresh catch of the day; what a way to show absolute hospitality to fourteen ladies on the Island.

Sincerely,

L.P.

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes along the Queen’s Highway towards East End offer great reef protected snorkeling as well as being only 5 minutes from the best SCUBA operators (Ocean Frontiers and Tortuga Divers) and dive sites on the entire island.

The beach behind Crystal Blue is very private but only has a small sandy area, not for barefoot swimming. It does offer great snorkeling. With the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing trade winds from the east offers an escape from any potential mosquitoes or flying insects.

The east end of the island is where any kite-boarding, wind-surfing, or even surfing is done on Grand Cayman. 5 minutes or less east of Queens Highway are 2 large resorts (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, grocery stores, a liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a coffee/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools and bar service. Tukka, The Italian Kitchen, and The Lighthouse are the closest restaurants. Nearby local spots for lunch include Vivine’s Kitchen, Arlaine���s, and the Pirates Cove.
