Seltzer Family from Baltimore, MD. August, 2005. Cayman Kai, Gardens

Dear Sophia and Staff  

Our family wanted to thank you for helping us find beautiful accommodations during our recent visit to the Cayman Islands. The vacation home you found for us in Cayman Kai was stunning. The views of the North Sound and the Caribbean beyond from the living room and master bedroom were amazing. The beach was very private and absolutely pristine. The very first day of our stay I saw a huge sea turtle while snorkeling within 30 feet of the shore right outside our home. I also saw a starfish, many lobster, Sargent majors and a puffer fish.

The neighborhood surrounding the Gardens of the Kai was very quiet and peaceful. The foliage around the house was lovely. We were thrilled with the abundance of flowering plants and palm trees.

We loved the layout of the house, there was plenty of privacy for everyone. The Master bedroom was wonderful, with beautiful Island furniture, a Jacuzzi, and elegantly tiled bathroom.

The kitchen, with its granite counter-tops, and all the little extras, was a Chef's dream. We really appreciated the outside grill, as we made many wonderful meals with the fresh catch bought from local fisherman.

The pool at The Gardens was very private and very pretty. Each night I enjoyed a late-night swim under the stars.

We snorkeled all over the Island, finding that the North and East side had some of the best visibility. We saw plenty of Blue Tang, Yellow Snapper, Conch, needle-fish, lobster. Rum Point was also a nice spot to swim. It is a good place for beginning snorkeler. Heritage beach on the North Side had good visibility, and areas near The Reef hotel had good coral formations.

We loved the Botanic Gardens and the Iguana that roamed freely around us there.

Our house was within walking distance to the Kaibo Yacht Club, which was a great place to go for dessert and coffee, and also really wonderful meals.

We did visit Seven mile beach twice during our stay, but much preferred the beauty and solitude of Cayman Kai.

Thank you, once again, for helping us have an amazing vacation.
