Hi I'm Mary. I am a flight attendent on a private airplane and I love to travel. I enjoy people and different cultures and would love to share my home with you!
What an amazing vacation! This was our second time staying at Mary's villa and our experience was just as great as the first time. We can't say enough about how nice and accommodating Mary is. We really feel like we are home when we come to visit. We spent so much time enjoying walking on the beach and watching the sunrise and sunsets. We can't wait to return soon!!!
My husband and I came to Grand Cayman (first time) for our anniversary, despite Hurricane Matthew. Thankfully it missed us, but I do think we saw some of its effects. The water from the complex was very rough (although other tenants advised they'd never seen it this way) for the majority of our stay. It cleared up at the end and we enjoyed fishing, snorkeling (swam with a turtle!), and enjoying the rich marine life off the shores of off Pappagallo. The unit is very true to the images shown. It is well-kept with nice finishings, linens, towels, dishware, and such. The thing we enjoyed most was the location and privacy. There was hardly anyone staying in the complex so we had the beach and pool to ourselves most days. Felt like we had the island to ourselves often, perks of coming during off season I suppose. The weather was great, a few showers, but no complaints coming from us Midwesterners. We highly recommend renting a car if you stay here, or anywhere on the island so you can explore. You are not walking distance to anywhere except the Ristorante Pappagallo across the street. The scene here is much different than the one off 7-mile beach and it's one we preferred. The water is rockier/more full of sea grass, but that just means better snorkeling.
George was very kind, friendly, hilarious, and also helpful if we needed anything.
Our favorite thing we was the bioluminescence tour off Rum Point, which we found via a flyer in the condo. One of the coolest experiences of our lives! A must try!
We absolutely fell in love with the island and would recommend Mary's place to others. Especially during the off-season. The value is worth it!
PS. Here's a helpful a travel hint: Sometimes the rental car speedometers are in kilometers, but the speed limit signs are in MPH.
Me and my mom stayed at Mary's place for a total of five days four night. We truly felt at home. The place is very clean and super spacey, way better then a hotel room. You definitely need a car to get to her place but there is also very accessible public transportation around island. This place also has a very quiet beach area and they leave launch chair out to hang out with no change. I couldn't have picked a better place. Mary is very easy to get in touch with, and super informative. We got to meet her and we where in the same restaurant on my moms birthday and she was so sweet to sing happy birthday to my mom along with the waiters. I thought that was very nice of her. I will definitely recommend this place!
We had a wonderful time at Mary's villa. The condo was lovely, and had every amenity needed for a comfortable stay. We loved waking up to the beautiful view of the turquoise ocean. My husband enjoyed flyfishing for the snook that frequently visited the dock. He landed one but it was "the one that got away", I'm afraid. I guess that just means we will have to return!
Thank you, Mary, for sharing your fantastic villa!
This is the perfect place to stay in Grand Cayman, especially if you want somewhere slightly away from the tourist hordes who flock to Seven-Mile Beach.
You still have a lovely beach right by the apartment which offers good snorkelling, sunbathing, watching the sun go down. There is also a communal pool - while we were there in Sept it felt like we had the whole complex virtually to ourselves.
Lovely air-conditioned apartment with all mod-cons - tv in living room & bedroom - and all kitchen appliances for your self-catering needs. This place is ideal for a couple looking for a affordable, peaceful Caribbean getaway.
Mary was a great host, providing us with all required details, & recommending the superb restaurant which is just over the road & perfect for a special dinner. We were also provided with beach towels by Sandy the housekeeper who was also incredibly helpful.
Great beaches nearby including Cemetry Beach and Kiki Beach. Dive-Tech, just up the road from the Turtle Farm (a fun excursion), will sort you for all your diving/scuba needs. Had a 4-night stay & just wished we could have stayed much longer. Cannot recommend highly enough. A great apartment in a great location. Thank you Mary for letting us stay :)
Great stay ! Mary and her manager Sandy took care of all details. The condo is exactly as in the pictures - even more beautiful and comfortable ☺️. Great vibe in the house , comfy bed , well equipped kitchen, washing and drying machine , comfy sofa , cable tv, excellent wifi - in short as if you were at home. 5 steps down and you are on a private beach and pier and can enjoy your coffee gazing at the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Mary and her place for anyone traveling to the Cayman Islands. It beats staying in a hotel any day!
What a fantastic stay!
This was my first airbnb, so I was a bit nervous . But Mary and Sandy were very accommodating. I kept in contact with them mostly through text. The condo was cool and clean. The best part of the stay was the fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer. Me and my girlfriend were able to wash and cook to our hearts content. The beach on the property was nice as well. It's a bit rocky and has seagrass about 5 ft from the shore (at the time) not the best for leisure wading, but pretty awesome for snorkeling. The property is also nice and quiet, a private oasis. Seven mile beach is not far away with grocery stores close by. I do recommend renting a car though.
All in all, it was a great stay.
Thank you Mary and Sandy for beautiful accommodations and warm hospitality. I hope our next airbnb stay is just as cool and laid back. Wishing you both the best.
Mary's villa was amazing, better then the pictures. The villa itself was gorgeous with everything needed for a comfortable long term stay. Its location, away from the bustle of 7 mile, but close enough to easily drive to all of the attractions of West Bay and seven mile, was ideal. The grounds were well maintained, and the view spectacular. Sandy, her property manager, met us when we checked in and was available for questions throughout the stay.
Mary answered all the questions we had before coming, and worked with us when booking issues arose.
I recommend renting a car, and going down the street to Dive Tech to rent a snorkel/fin set, as both will help you enjoy the Island to its fullest extent.
I can't wait to come back!
This was my first visit to Cayman and it will definitely not be my last. The resort was exactly what I wanted in a vacation. A quiet, absolutely beautiful setting. The unit I stayed in was accurately described. Mary was super nice and very informative. Having the car rental made exploring the island very easy.
Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us. We enjoyed our stay on the island. The secluded condo with our own private beach access was fantastic. We were able to relax without the crowds, but was close enough to enjoy the town with a short drive. Mary's condo provided us with everything we needed and more. We would love to come back and visit in the future!
Great renter. Fellow host with many good suggestions. Highly recommended!
Mary and her family were extremely nice and easy to communicate with;) I would recommend them as tenants in a heart beat and would be very happy to host them an other time!!
Mary and her sons were great guests. Mary was easy to communicate with and they left our home in terrific condition. Thanks so much!
