Looking for a condo that is convenient to everything, but away from the7 Mile Beach 'scene'?
Our condo is private and secluded, yet close to all the necessary amenities. Within 20 minutes from the airport (direct flights from New York, Toronto, Chicago, Miami), 5-10 minutes to Seven Mile Beach, and a few minutes to the closest dive shop, the condo is in convenient, yet private location.
This is a place where R&R; is the number one priority. You can be as active, or inactive as you want. If you want to be part of the tourist scene of jet skiers, para-sailing, bars, cruise ship scene etc., Seven Mile Beach is just minutes away. If you want to sit on the beach with a good book, listen to the waves, watch the birds, dig your toes in the sand, count the shades of blue (so far, the list is at 80), and give yourself some space to re-charge, your chaise awaits you.
If you are a gourmand, or just like to have a great meal, the best and most interesting restaurants are within minutes of our condo.
Our guests regularly tell us that it is the best vacation that they have had, and consequently, we have many repeat visitors. We take great pride in providing a very high standard of comfort, hospitality and an environment that is more than the average rental property. The dĂŠcor, furnishings, appliances etc. are continually updated in an upbeat, island style. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need, for those who prefer dining out, there is one of the best restaurants across the street, and another five minutes away. There is also take-out food and a grocery store nearby.
The unit has been set up with focus on comfort, efficiency and a great vacation experience. The unit is exceptionally light, clean, large, spacious, and uncluttered. Our guests repeatedly tell us that the unit is everything if not more than they expected and and how much they appreciate the welcoming ambiance and upbeat beach decor in white with splashes of tropical color. The unit is equipped with WIFI, cable TV, central air-conditioning,blow-dryers, games, and puzzles. There is a king size bed in the master and twins in the second bedroom (can be made into a king) and most people comment on how comfortable the beds are. There are four balconies with views off the unit and comfortable Muskoka chairs off the living room. The sunken living room has extra high ceiling which makes the unit feel larger and spacious. The unit is larger than many of the two bedrooms in the complex and the combination of good design and good furnishings make for a very comfortable living experience and consequently more enjoyable vacation.
If you are price comparing with other units in the complex you'll notice a price difference, but if you look a little closer, you will also notice a great price-value difference. Our condo also has superior views, is excellently equipped, is regularly updated and is one of the best units in the complex. This unit has been approved by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, complies with all government regulations and is part of the Condos at Pappagallo Beach rental license. This means that you will receive a pre-vacation information package, be properly received by an appointed on island representative who will 'meet and greet' you and make sure you are comfortable with the apartment, and you will have a back-up support system if needed. In short, there are no 'surprises'. You have the peace of mind of knowing you have an invaluable organized support system before your trip and emergency back-up during your stay. Many of our guests tell us that the effort that goes into making their stay as informative and safe as possible is an added bonus that means a huge difference to their overall vacation experience. The attention to detail and extra TLC are some of the reasons many of them come back again.
Having owned Starfish Villa for nearly thirty years, we have enjoyed sharing our knowledge and experience with our guests in the hope that they leave with wonderful memories of their own. We spend a lot of time and energy to make this property a 'special place' and so far we are continually told that we surpass expectations. If you would like to know more about this condo, please feel free to contact us.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Villas Pappagallo in April 2015 for 9 days. What a delight! After booking the apartment, we were supplied with more information by the owner that helped us prepare and plan for our vacation. Sandy greeted us upon arrival. She was happy to answer any questions we had and left us to settle in and explore.
At first glance, we were pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the photos. I have ended up in rental units that often times look spacious and clean from the photos and unfortunately were not. This was NOT the case with this unit. It was large, clean, and well-decorated. The beds were big, comfortable and fresh. The towels were clean and plentiful. The kitchen was better equipped than our own. We immediately felt at home in our “temporary home”!
The unit was a treat, but the property at Villas Pappagallo was the real treasure. We were looking to relax and decompress – VP was just the place! We found ourselves fall into a routine early on. Waking up early to the sun peaking through the bedroom windows, breakfast on the balcony, trips down to the pool, and long walks down the beach. Some of the best snorkelling on the island is directly off the VP jetty – we saw plenty of fun sea creatures. In the evenings, we found ourselves back on the balcony with a drink in hand. It was a level of relaxation we had never experienced!
When we did decide to travel outside of the property, we were pleased to see that this wasn’t a cliché Caribbean Island. The locals are genuine and you won’t be harrassed while walking down the beach. We took trips to the Turtle Farm and Cracked Conch, Seven Mile Beach, Cemetery Beach and the East End. We felt comfortable everywhere we went and the island was easy to navigate by car. A must do is Stingray City. What majestic creatures!
While we ate many meals at home, we did venture out to a couple meals during our stay. We ate Chicken Chicken for take-out, and dined out at Ristorante Pappagallo, Calypso Grill and Cimboco. All fantastic meals! The restaurants on the island provide something for everyone.
Overall our experience was unforgettable! Lee has put a lot of thought, effort and care into making this place a home. She was responsive and her advice was extremely valuable. We hope that we have a chance to return to Villas Pappagallo in the near future and we will definitely recommend to all friends and family!

My husband and I spent a week here for our honeymoon in April. We could not have asked for a more perfect getaway. Lee was responsive and resourceful right from the start. She answered all of our questions and made sure we had a thorough list of what to expect upon arrival and throughout our stay. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and were welcomed at the Villa. We were given a tour of the Villa and had an opportunity to ask questions and get settled. The condo was better than we had expected - the photos of this property do not do it justice. The kitchen is fully equipped, living room is comfortable, bedrooms are large and the bathrooms both include a shower with great water pressure. There is a dishwasher and washer/dryer right in the unit. The entire condo is very tastefully decorated. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay is here, it's just like being in your own home. The beds were comfortable with soft, clean sheets and plush pillows. There were more than enough beach and shower towels. There is a TV with cable and plenty of board games. Each room also has a large closet and has an outside balcony with seating. The balcony off the living room overlooks the pool and beach area, providing an excellent view of the property.
Villas Pappagallo is secluded from the rest of the island, providing a relaxing, secluded area to refresh and rewind. There is a national park directly beside the Villas with a beautiful, natural landscape and a perfectly quiet place to walk along the beach. Seven Mile Beach is a short car ride away and Georgetown just a bit further. The entire island is accessible from Villas Pappagallo. We were so pleased to be staying in West Bay. Our two favourite restaurants were Ristorante Pappagallo and Cracked Conch, right in West Bay. Ristorante Pappagallo is just steps away from the Villa. The snorkelling and sunsets on West Bay were also highlights. We took a trip to rum point for an afternoon for snorkelling and lunch. This is an easy day trip in the car. There are so many things to see and do on the island, but we spent most of our days on the beach right out front Starfish Villa. The property was quiet and all neighbours were friendly and respectful.
We cannot wait to come back to Grand Cayman. We will absolutely stay at Lee's condo at Villas Pappagallo again. I cannot think of one single disappointment or criticism. Great Vacation!!
Thanks so much for the outstanding review Erin! It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and so rewarding when our guests expectations are met. Hope to have you back again soon.

“Perfect Vacation Rental!!”
Left on 08/05/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 5, 2013Stayed Dec 2012
We stayed at this unit for Christmas 2012 and it was a perfect setting. The location is serene and private, but a very easy drive to shopping and restaurants. This unit was perfect! Well equipped and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony was exceptional. The pool was quite and we were always able to get chairs. Some days it was like having a private pool. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for the amazing review Karen! It was a pleasure to have you staying our unit and we look forward to your return visit.

“Lovely location with spectacular snorkeling”
Left on 04/04/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 4, 2013Stayed Mar 2013
My family recently stayed in this warm and inviting condo. Everything was as described as far as amenities and features of this unit and in great working order. We could not have found a more relaxing location. We really had a tremendous resource in that the owners were readily available to help us with information about the island. The beach is beautiful and snorkeling out to the reef is truly amazing. We also accessed kite board lessons for our son (just down the road from this location). Truly a tremendous find for us as there was something for everyone here!
Thank you Lorie! It was a pleasure having you stay with us and hope to see you back again soon.

Our family just had a wonderful vacation staying at the Starfish Villa. It was the best place to stay on the whole island. It has amazing views with the comforts of home. The pool & beach are so quiet - it's hard not to relax and enjoy yourself. We also enjoyed going for walks through the National Park which is right next to the property and walking back along the ocean. Right out in front of the villa is some of the best snorkeling we've ever done. We saw so many neat sea creatures. From star fish to octopus. It was amazing. The villa was so comfortable & having the washer & dryer was really handy. Last of all, the owner Lee, was the best to deal with. She responded so quickly to all emails & had every detail documented for a quick reference. From directions to the property from the airport to where to eat. We can't thank you enough for sharing your villa - it was spectacular & you won't be disappointed.
It was a pleasure having your lovely family stay with us. Look forward to seeing you again.

Our family enjoyed a fantastic stay at Starfish Villa. Everything that we needed or wanted was there... spacious living areas, a well-appointed kitchen, great view over the pool and ocean, the best dining that we found on the island across the road (Ristorante Pappagallo), and just the right combination of seclusion yet close proximity to amenities.
The property is very clean and well maintained, and Lee took great care via phone and email to make sure that our questions were answered during the booking process and that we were well settled in after arrival.
Our four-year old enjoyed the pools, the beach, the pelican and other birds on the pier, the nearby turtle farm, the parrots at Ristorante Pappagallo, the botanical gardens on the other side of the island, and the great seafood to be had everywhere we went.
We would recommend the property to a friend or relative and would like to return one day!

My husband and I went to Grand Cayman for our honeymoon and stayed at Lee's condo which was the perfect relaxing vacation after a long year of wedding planning. We made the most of the island and drove around the whole island, went to stingray city (which was awesome!), ate at some great restaurants (papagallos, cracked conch), did a bit of snorkling off the dock at pappagallo villa, did a bit of shopping and mainly spent a lot of hours on 7 mile beach. Renting a car was key!
The condo was perfect, very clean with a great view (loved the 4 different decks), had a great master bedroom and a huge kitchen.
Overall this was a wonderful vacation, absolutely nothing to complain about. Lee ensured our stay was perfect and very well organized.
Looking forward to going back again some time in the future!
