Great Escape is truly as magical and majestic as the photos! I spent a week at the Great Escape with my boyfriend and we could not have been more thrilled with the location, property, and amenities. We felt spoiled to have a private pool and ocean at our feet and loved using the kayak and paddle board right from the property. This house is simply gorgeous and has everything you could want including an equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and couch, a large entertainment center, and a ping pong table. In fact, we enjoyed the house so much that we rarely wanted to leave! When we did venture off the property, we enjoyed the close proximity to Rum Point and Kaibo for nightlife and dancing. Stingray City is also a short boat ride from Rum Point- a must see! We have already recommended Great Escape to friends and will continue to do so.

Great Escape is a beautiful home in the perfect location. A truly luxurious property with an amazing pool and a short walk to Rum Point Beach, which is fantastic. I can't say enough about the house, the pool, the beach, the island. It truly was a perfect vacation. Although it is a drive to the other side of the island, we preferred the relaxing, quiet and island feel of Cayman Kai. The photos of Great Escape are very accurate except honestly I think the pool is bigger than it looks in the photos. Grand Cayman Villas handled our reservation in a professional, timely and courteous manner. They answered all of my questions promptly. They provided lots of information about the island, the property, restaurants, car rentals, etc. Upon arrival there were a couple minor issues (not worth mentioning) but the Villa Manager answered my call immediately and things were taken care of within 20 minutes. The owners of the property were a pleasure to deal with as well. We received an email from them before our stay with helpful information about the property and the island. We spoke by phone and met in person briefly on arrival. They were nothing but helpful and friendly. Highly recommend Great Escape and Grand Cayman Villas. It might be a few years but we will definitely be back.

This house is amazing. Every room is comfortable. The master suite is gorgeous and spacious. The pool area is fantastic and all the outdoor furniture is comfortable. We lounged by the pool every afternoon while our little one napped. The walk to Rum Point Beach was easy and the beach was fun. We enjoyed being on this side of the island and could not have asked for a better house!

Service from our booking company (grandcaymanvillas.net) was fantastic. I will 100% use them again after we received nothing but total professional treatment from a clearly great operation.
The house was top notch. Our party had 4 houses booked and this was the nicest one for a family, in my view, despite not being on the beach.
Only a few minor complaints about the house itself, the hot water heater is a little small for the expected heavy usage especially with a dual head master shower, also septic tank can be a little trouble if you overuse water, so just be mindful.
The outdoor pool area was great for relaxation. No beach access of course makes it a little less desirable, but I preferred this over the beach access houses in terms of livability.
The amenities were awesome1
Kitchen, awesome layout and very inviting if with a group from other parts of the island.
All high end appliances (kitchen aide and whirlpool super quiet washer).
Interior design, well above average, all rooms color coordinated perfectly.
Fixtures were all new and top shelf.
Master bedroom and bathroom were super! Your wife / girlfriend will adore you for being able to spend time in this room.
House is all 1 level, which makes getting around very easy!
In house Wifi / phone / cable is nice, but who wants to watch TV?
Side rooms for other couples / kids are great. The pool house is great since it is separate and self contained of the main house, so it allows a little separation.
Location is far from grocery stores, as you are warned, so make sure you stock up.
The service from the manager was great as well. We had a leaking toilet that was causing the septic to not flush water and they had a plumber out within 1 hour on a Sunday! That is great service.
I almost don't want to talk the house up too much, so I can book it again. I would not suggest for young people looking to economize or 'party it up', but great for 30 and up couples and those with families.

We held our corporate retreat in January, the home was in wonderful condition. The pool w/heater was fantastic! A perfect getaway. One thing that was inconvienient was the lack of spices for cooking. Obviously, the spices are very expensive for a short stay. I would like to see some of those added so that the cost, convienince and experience of cooking at home would be better. Overall, we highly recommend the Great Escape and already have to many of our friends.

We stayed at the Great Escape from Nov. 26 - Dec. 4 2011. We were in Grand Cayman for a friends wedding that was to be held at Sun Salutations across the street. The Great Escape was an ideal location and a beautiful property inside and out. As a group we rented The Great Escape, Sun Salutations, Rainbow's End and We'll Sea. All properties were immaculate and we will be returning once again. The Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom were amazing in the Great Escape, the kitchen had very nice appliances and plenty of room. We stayed with 6 adults and could've added a couple more and never felt crowded. There is plenty to do from biking to kayaking to beach volleyball. A 2 minute walk from Rum Point where there are stores, restaurants etc. I highly recommend the Great Escape if you are planning a trip to Grand Cayman.
