Crystal Cove: Grand Cayman Luxury Oceanfront Villa
Description from the manager
Beach front tranquility with a touch of Caribbean class. Designed by John Doak and built in a French West Indian style this spectacular beachfront property commands stunning views over one hundred and twenty six feet of the reef protected Frank Sound. Built in 2003 this totally private island style residence of three beds and three baths over some three thousand six hundred square feet nestles toward the beachside of a deep one and a quarter acre lot. Hidden from the road you approach the property along a meandering driveway lined with a variety flowers, bushes & trees some of which are fruit bearing.
Entering the cottage you are immediately struck with the awesome views of the sound from the great room. Cathedral ceilings with typically stylish tongue and groove finish create a light and airy feel aided by the two dormer windows set high to maximise the rooms natural light. One of the most stunning features of this exquisite home is the dining area. Spacious and designed around a twenty five foot high rotunda with vaulted ceilings and apex roof lights, with double door access from both the kitchen and lounge, this great entertaining space is ideally situated to catch the beautiful evening sunsets or to enjoy early morning sun over a West Indian breakfast.
The kitchen is welcoming yet understated with the simple elegance of white Caribbean style cabinetry. The main house accommodates two of the three bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. Of good proportion the master occupies the beach views and benefits from patio doors opening onto the pool deck. The second bedroom has views over the luscious and well landscaped gardens. A detached guest cottage, set off to one side from the main house, accommodates the third apartment style bedroom and huge deck as well as a double car garage below. Beachside, a sea grape protected sea wall retains the pool and deck with a much loved and enjoyed gazebo to the West surrounded by the formal gardens created as artistic islands of manicured lawn surrounded by sand and natural vegetation, easily managed with a sprinkler system and exterior lighting.
A gentle south - south east prevailing breeze dances across the deck, terrace and gardens encouraging outdoor living and entertaining. This special Island home will suit someone with a sense of style in search of pleasure and practicality. With porcelain floor tiles throughout, a standing seam roof, rendered finish and hurricane rated glass, Innesfree is mostly maintenance free. Lots of storage and a spacious laundry are great for family.
The house is VERY private, located at Breakers on Cayman's South Coast
It is set in an extensive landscaped private garden ( one of the nicest on the island)
The house has been featured in architectural magazines.
Oceanfront freshwater pool with verandah and gazebo.
We have a truly barefoot beach deep white sand with no rocks, and sheltered water easily as nice as Kaibo and much nicer than most houses on the North Coast.
Its a non- smoking property, and we do not wish to have pets.
The guest cottage is really a separate suite above the garage with its own deck overlooking the sea.
There is a 42 DLP TV in the LR and another TV in the kitchen. The LR also has a VCR/DVD/Bose Surround Sound system (with outside speakers.). The house is DSL connected.
The house is < 1 mile form the well known Lighthouse restaurant.
We are about 25 mins from Georgetown (after the new by-pass). We are half way between Georgetown and Rum Point.
There is good shopping at the Countryside mall about 15mins away.
We will leave two bicycles for guests.
There is a mooring buoy for a boat just off the beach.
We are near the public dock where fresh fish is available from the local fisherman.
Brandi, thanks for your review. We're honored to continue to be able to serve you each year!

This beautiful home was our vacation spot this past Christmas holiday season. The house was very well kept, clean, and fun. It is located in a more isolated area of the island, however Seven Mile Beach is only about a 30 minute drive. We wanted more isolation due to the volumes of people on Seven Mile Beach at that time of year which was nice! While the beach near the house is not as beautiful as the beach on Seven Mile Beach, there is great snorkeling and kayaking off the shore. Overall we enjoyed the house and beach tremendously and hope to stay here again!

We had such a wonderful time staying at Innesfree. Perfect for a family...not too small and not too big! Our kids enjoyed every minute and swam from sun up to sun down in the pool. Gorgeous property and right on the beach. Location was great too. Not far from George Town and Rum Point. We will definitely be back again! Only suggestion we have is adding Tv's to the master bedroom and guest house.

This villa is one of the prettiest I've rented on any of the caribbean islands (and there have been quite a few). The service by the property manager and McCurley's Car Rental was excellent from arrival to departure. The island itself is also one of the prettiest, clean and well kept, and the people were very friendly.
I highly recommend Grand Cayman Island and specifically this villa. The only drawback is that the beach just in front of the villa is not ideal for swimming (reeds grow in the shallow waters). However, there are a number of public beaches a short distance away.

Our family stayed in the Innesfree Villa for one week - the house and its grounds are just as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. The house is simply stunning. This is without a doubt a vacation home to return to. There was not one thing that we needed.
The location was perfect, the beach was perfect, the house was just amazing. We spent a lot of time there both inside and out. You felt like a royalty due to the quality of the accomodations. This house compared to others I have rented over the years is by far at the top of my list for many reasons. Cayman will always hold a special place in our hearts with many memories that will forever be in our hearts.
Communcation with the property manager both on and off the island was impeccable.
Thank you to Don, Linda and Georgia for all that you did for us.
