About Chris Hartzell

We honeymooned in Grand Cayman 33 years ago and that is when we fell in love with the island, and specifically the north side of the island. It was different than any beach that we had experienced. Azure Breeze is serene and peaceful, with breathtaking views of the Carribean Sea! And, oh , the snorkeling! No matter how many times you dip your head into the water, you will be amazed and awed at the display of nature that you will experience in our backyard. Top your day of snorkeling off with a bottle of wine in the kayak out back watching the sunset. Then relax as you are amazed at the shooting stars in the star-studded sky!

Chris Hartzell purchased this villa in 2003

Why Chris Hartzell chose Cayman Islands

Unspoiled, natural beach

No Crowds, no people

A true beach experience

Quiet and serene

Peaceful beyond belief

What makes this villa unique

Best snorkeling site on the island....and we and we have tried them all! The shallow waters between the shore and the coral reef allow even the most skiddish to enjoy this wondrous adventure. You will have an authentic Cayman Island experience on our quiet and peaceful side of the island, alongside the locals. No dealing with the Cayman islands tourists and the resulting traffic in Georgetown, or the masses of people that the cruise ships bring to Seven Mile Beach. This is real Cayman!

Fabulous House and Best Snorkeling!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Grand Cayman since 2008. We love the North Side because it has THE BEST SNORKELING right from the beach. And this house is THE BEST! Unlike most rentals that have the barest of necessities, this house has EVERYTHING you could possibly need. The kitchen is so well-stocked, and not with mis-matched odds and ends! There is a new cutlery block with sharp knives, a full set of pots and pans (with lids!), baking dishes, Corningware, scissors, an unbelievably complete service for 12 of dinnerware, zillions of glasses, toaster, coffee maker, blender, coffee grinder, and MORE! Thee are tons of spices, mixing bowls, a George Foreman grill and a charcoal outside grill, and lots of things I can't remember. The rest of the house is fabulous as well. The furniture is comfortable and very nice! We appreciate the upholstered sofas and chair! (We personally dislike sitting on furniture with exposed wicker or rattan arms). The owner's even have a remote control box with a guide (with pictures) that clearly explains how to use all of the services (cable TV, NetFlix, DVD Player, etc.)

This is by far, the best equipped rental we have stayed in anywhere! And we have probably been is 40 to 50 rentals over the years from the New Jersey shore, to various Caribbean Islands, to France, Germany and England.

The owners are very nice to deal with and offer a wealth of information. They have a huge binder full of suggestions for everything you could possibly want to do - from dining, to sight-seeing, to entertainment options. They give you valuable insights as to what to do and how - like making sure to check the cruise ship itinerary before going to Georgetown! Or taking the Sting Ray City trip from Rum Point.

The beach and view are fabulous. I most enjoy being able to just walk into the water and see fish and coral, without being in deep water. The snorkeling out front is the best I've found on Grand Cayman. The reef is not too far off shore and there are tons of coral heads between shore and reef with lots of fish. There are places where you feel you are snorkeling amidst sparkling jewels when the sunlight hits the beautiful coral and sparkles off of it.

There are several restaurants nearby, Tukka's on the East End where you can feed the Frigatebirds, Kaibo Upstairs for a delicious and romantic dinner, Over the Edge, Rum Point and Kaibo Beach Grill.

As you can tell, I highly recommend this rental. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Meg, Thank you so very much for your kind words about our beloved Azure Breeze. We have tried to think of everything that would make our guests' vacations comfortable, stress- free and memorable! Your description of the snorkeling in the backyard is beautifully vivd and spot-on. WE also think right out back offers the best snorkeling on the island. It sounds like you had wonderful weather on your trip and glass-like seas that are optimum for experiencing an underwater spectacle! We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation so much that we will again see you next year! We look forward to hosting you again! Chris

Definitely a slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place to stay. The condo is spacious, well-stocked with supplies, very quiet, and has fantastic snorkeling right out the back door. The owners are very helpful and provide a lot of useful information. We enjoyed staying on this side of the island away from 7 Mile Beach and Georgetown where all the cruise ships come in. This side of the island is very quiet and easy to get around. With the condo complex only having 6 units, it was like we had our own private beach. If you like a quiet getaway with a lot of amenities, this is the place for you!

Ocean Front Condo Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

Slice of heaven describes Azure Breeze #3. The condo is steps from the water. You can hear the waves at night. The condo itself is well furnished and beautiful. The description on the VRBO website is very accurate. Azure Breeze is a very quiet, cozy and private place. We enjoyed listening to the ocean or watching the stars sitting on the deck as well on the balcony off the master bedroom. Chris was very helpful providing information prior to our visit as well as during our visit. Restaurants as well as grocery stores were easy to find as a result. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend Azure Breeze #3.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. It had an ample supply of beach towels and the kitchen well-stocked. The other amenities (snorkel gear, kayak), were a great addition too. The location on the northside was perfect to avoid crowds (particularly from cruise ship passengers), but also to be close enough to areas of interest. By far the best part (particularly for the kids) was the , literally, few steps to the beach. We snorkeled "from the beach" at many places around the island and the snorkeling off Azure Breeze had some of the best coral. Thanks!

Perfect location on Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Azure Breeze. The uncrowded location was exactly what we were looking for, and the house and amenities were fabulous. Everything we needed was provided, and the view from the house is amazing! The location is wonderful for avoiding the Seven Mile Beach/Georgetown crowds (plan your visits there when there are few/no cruise ships), and the island is small enough to easily drive everywhere and explore from this location. The owners were extremely thorough in providing information prior to our visit (car rental, directions, grocery stores, etc), and the communication was great. We snorkeled many places on the island, and the reef in front of the house was definitely one of the best locations. Having a kayak, snorkeling, and an almost-empty beach right out the front door, made for an amazing vacation. We can't wait to return!
