Perfect time at Calypso Blue and Grand Cayman!out of 5
Reviewed by Stacy on 09/16/2017
We had an amazing time in Grand Cayman, and staying at Calypso Blue! This location, on the "North Side" of the island, was a perfect spot for us. You are out of the busy 7 Mile Beach area, but close enough to go over for a day trip as you'd like. You are in turn close enough to Rum Point to go to the lovely beaches there, and Sting Ray City is a close boat ride away! Calypso Blue was all we could ask for! We were a party of 10 adults (3 couples and 4 singles) and the bedrooms/configurations suited our needs perfectly. The house is completely remodeled and modern with a beautiful beach theme. The pool is a great plunge pool size, and just steps from the beach. The two kayaks that were available with the house were a great amenity, in addition we also rented two paddle boards. The use of the Silver Thatch preferred vendors was super helpful in planning snorkel/scuba trips, arranging provisioning, and paddle board rentals. Water shoes are a must as there is reef surrounding the property, which makes for great snorkeling. Our favorites were: Tukka, Eagle Rays, Macabuca, and Over the Edge! Many thanks to Craig, Scott, and all at Grand Cayman Villas for helping us through all stages of our vacation - it was perfect! Stacy, Greg, Caroline, Mark, Patty, Pat, Suzi, Gigi, Kwyn, and Tim
Calypso Blue is the perfect house for a relaxing getaway!out of 5
Reviewed by Mary B. on 09/09/2017
Calypso Blue is the perfect house for a relaxing getaway. We loved being able to snorkel right out back (booties needed), using the pool and lounging under the shade of the trees. The house is very clean and welcoming - everything in the house is practically brand new. We had no issues, but found the owner and house manager both very attentive. Things to do nearby: Rum point is just a short drive past the house. It is a fun place to have lunch & drinks and you can take a Sting Ray City/Snorkel tour from there - we highly recommend it! Just past Rum Point, you can check out the huge Starfish at Starfish point (most can be found at the end on left.) Dining: we were there off-season, so a couple restaurants were closed. We ate at Over the Edge several times. It is a good, casual option very close by. Tukka is about 20 minutes away, but well worth the drive (we sat outside). I would stay at Calypso Blue again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing week in a beautiful setting. Mary

We had an amazing time at Calypso Blue. The house is beautiful and very clean.We were here with our children, their spouses and our grandchildren to celebrate my husband's retirement! We wne to Stingray sandbar(Silver Thatch Charters), a must do! We snorkeled and swam with dolphins at Discovery Cove, and visited the turtle farm. Several of us went scuba diving with White Sand. We dined at Duke's, Over the Edge, Tukka, Kaibo, Rum Point, EagleRays. All were very good. We do not recommend The White House - very expensive and not that good really. The time we spent in the pool and the ocean was our favorite part. Felt like home! This was the BEST vacation ever!

Loved the house. Calypso Blue was even better than we imagined. So open and spacious, and so clean and comfortable. It was perfect for the six adults and four kids. It had everything we needed. Lots of towels, pots, pans and dishes. We enjoyed the uniquely shaped pool. It was very refreshing. How nice to be able to snorkel and kayak just steps from the backyard. The sunsets and views were awesome. At night you should check out the stars--glorious. We were glad we stayed on the North Side of the Island--more quiet, less touristy. We took advantage of the jet skis and paddle boards from Kaibo Beach, the Bioluminescent Boat Tour from Rum Point, and the boat to Sting Ray City with Captain George from Silver Thatch. We had a wonderful nine days in this villa. We are very glad we found Calypso Blue.

This was our family's first visit to the Cayman Islands and we chose this property to avoid the hustle and bustle of the touristy 7 Mile Beach area. We arrived to find ourselves beyond impressed with the layout of the house, the private pool, and the beauty of the ocean in the backyard. The home is well appointed, has ample space for a comfortable stay, and you can literally swim to the coral reef just 100 yards from shore. With close proximity to Rum Point for seeing starfish, sea turtles, and sting rays, it made for a perfect escape from our metropolitan routine. We'd highly recommend this home for active families looking for a blend of water sports and beachfront solitude.

Loved the house!!! Very spacious for a group of 11 adults and 1 child. Property Managers came by in middle of stay to check on everything and was able to address our issues which were not many. The only drawback which is not owners or property managers fault is the trash pickup. After a week of family of twelve trash the cans were overflowing. I can't began to tell how much we enjoyed staying at Calypso Blue and would stay here again.
Thank you for the review. Glad you had a nice stay. We have asked the municipality for additional trash pickup. Hopefully soon...

We lounged, we snorkeled, we kissed stingrays, we drank, we ate, and we drank... We totally forgot about the real world! Crystal Blue itself was great! We had a little water pressure issue upstairs but the property manager came over and took care of that (Thank you!). Lots less humid here than Alabama, and we enjoyed the warm days and a couple rainy evenings. This trip was a celebration of our grandparent's 50th anniversary. We had a professional photographer come over and take some photos. They ended up looking great! We had Remy from rent-a-chef come cook a wonderful 4 course dinner. We could not have asked for a better trip!!!

We stayed close to Calypso Blue most of the time... dining at Tukka (tacos, they lived up to the hype), Rum Point Wreck Bar and Kaibo Beach for pizzas, and for our last night an amazing dinner at Kaibo Upstairs!!! We also made it to the other side of the island to see Turtle Centre and have lunch at Sunshine Grill. Visited Starfish Point (go early), the blow holes and Rum Point Beach. The Color Garden at the Botanical Park was excellent, and in home massages and spa treatments from Perfectly Pampered Cayman were amazing!!!!

We rented a car from McCurley's tours which saved us the hassle of picking it up at the airport. They greeted us as we exited the airport and, after making a stop at the large grocery store and liquor store, transported us to Calypso Blue where the car was waiting. They also picked us up the day of departure therefore we only needed big enough car for bodies, not bags. This was a great suggestion from the owner and management that I would also recommend. Our trip was to celebrate a few milestone, 50th, birthdays and celebrate we did! If you are looking for an one of a kind Cayman vacation, Calypso Blue is perfect. We will be back!

Our group had an amazing time in The Cayman Islands and were beyond thrilled with our selection of Calypso Blue. Located on the north side of the island, it is away from the touristy areas but close to Rum Point, Starfish Point, and Kaibo Beach with plenty of activities, local restaurants and bars to keep you busy. We loved that we could have a day at the house, enjoying the pool and view, snorkeling along the beach or jump in the car and go to the busier areas. So much better than a big hotel in a super crowded setting, fighting for pool or beach chairs, and eating every meal at a hotel. The house was exactly as it was described, completely renovated and amazingly comfortable. Great mattresses, linens, completely stocked kitchen items for cooking, massive washer and dryer, large dining table and breakfast bar, it was just as advertised. When we arrived, the home was spotless and so nicely decorated with plenty of storage for everyone's stuff. The owner and management provided outstanding service from start to finish, checking in with me, the party planner, prior to our trip and during, making sure we were having a great time and that everything was to our standards. They provided a great app that answered all the questions we had and gave wonderful suggestions, directions, and contacts. Previous guests had left great notes and suggestions so the guest book was our #1 resource after we arrived. Fish tacos at Tukka, drinks at Over the Edge, Lunch at Kaibo Beach Bar, and an amazing dinner at Upstairs Restaurant at Kaibo. We also hired two lovely and amazing massage therapist from PerfectlyPamperedCayman.com for in-house massages. I would highly recommend there services. Continued...

Anything that we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided. Minutes from Rum Point, Starfish Point, Botanical Gardens. The mini grocery store was literally a couple houses down the road where we visited often for items that we did not purchase at Fosters in Georgetown. We cooked and grilled our meals and ate in the screened in porch that faces the ocean. We also ate The Lighthouse and Tukka. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman. The first time we stayed at another private home. Calypso Blue was amazing. Really nice having the privacy of your own home. Wonderful memories created with our family of 9 and our first grandchild "in the oven" on this trip! We cooked in for most of our trip as the home is very wel equipped with everything we could need, but we did dine out at Tukka, Over the Edge and The Lighthouse. Our evening dinner right on the beach at Tukka was amazing, but our dinner at The Lighthouse was outstanding - request outdoor seating at both!!! We spent a day on the beach at Rum Point, did some shorkeling, ate lunch and had some wonderful rum runners. We visited 7 mile beach which we found to be very touristy but still beautiful. We visited "Hell", the Botanical Gardens and an afternoon of shopping in George Town. There was only one cruise ship in port, so not too busy. But the very best times were spent here at Calypso Blue in the pool, on the beach, kayaking, snorkeling, grilling out and playing cards. Wonderful memories, we hope to be back soon.

"Freshly renovated" and exceptionally renovated describes Calypso Blue. The unit met all our needs and then some. Superbly equipped kitchen, great dining areas (both inside as well as in the screened-in porch outside. The pool was great for all, especially for our 3 year old grandchild. Literally walked past the pool, onto the beach and right into the ocean for snorkeling. Depending on traffic, the unit is anywhere from 40-60 minutes from the airport. Calypso Blue is on what locals call the "north shore" and this is certainly the less populated and less touristy side of the island. There is always a breeze coming off the ocean, and that is welcome; walk out the front door of the house, not much breeze and it warms up quickly. A nice feature is the blue/white striped towels for use on site, and they also have a good supply of other beach towels which presumably are for use either on site or at other beaches you may choose to go to. We would rent Calypso Blue again and fell100% confident in recommending it to anyone.

We have not visited the Cayman Islands for three years due to health and other personal issues, so we were greatly anticipating this vacation. Our grown children--one from San Diego and one from Austin, TX--joined us. Since our first vacation to Grand Cayman in 2000 we have carefully selected our accommodations. We voted and, hands down, Calypso Blue was our favorite villa. It was so bright and cheerful, and had every amenity we could have dreamed of. We met some of our neighbors, some of whom were locals of the island. They helped us plan some of our activities, and were gracious enough to "loan" us their gazebo to view some of the spectacular sunsets. We would highly recommend this property to groups of four or more who enjoy the tranquility of the North Side and who love to hear the waves breaking on the beach. We will be back, and won't hesitate booking Calypso Blue again.

We had all of our adult children with their spouses, my 82 year old mother, my youngest son who is in college and my 13 year old grandson. There was 9 of us altogether. The house was spacious and everyone had their own space to get away. We watched the sunset every night and the sunrises in the morning. The beauty of the views were fabulous and the house was completely comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were very happy with this choice. We had a car so we drove to the sites. We loved the pool and we spent a considerable amount of time there and snorkeling off the backyard. We chartered a day cruise and had a beautiful day. ( I made sure we booked the boat on a day no cruise ships were scheduled in ) there were less people out at starfish beach and stingray cove. I understand it can be quite crazy at these site when the cruise ship come in. We have cruised most of our vacation with our family and I was worried all of us in one house together but this was the most relaxing vacation we ever had. Being away from all the craziness on 7 mile beach was wonderful. We cooked almost all our meals in and the kitchen was stocked. We did not miss anything. I can not begin to say what a wonderful place this was and we have great memories of Calypso Blue. I would recommend this home to anyone. Especially if you have a large family. There was lots of nature to look at. The little hermit crabs visited daily. We loved to watch them. We look forward to returning. Mckay family

We had a fabulous week. This is one of our finest vacation choices! The house was perfect for our whole family. We swam and snorkeled and loved watching the small crabs and green lizards (they like strawberries!). We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen is well equiped for this. We also chartered a boat for half a day from Aquarius - Mario was great. He took us to all the great tourist spots but timed the trip when there would be few or no other people around. Our last day the guys surprised us with Time Out massage at the home - all of the girls got massages to the sound of the ocean! We loved it here and can not wait to come back!

We all absolutely loved our stay at Calypso Blue! It was love at first sight when we walked in the door! The interiors are stunning and the views are amazing. The kids - 4 and 7 - loved playing in the pool all day long, and the adults loved relaxing on the porch, by the pool and walking along waters edge with our coffee in the mornings and "adult beverages" in the evenings! A night swim is a must - the stars are amazing here without city lights! Snorkeling off Calypso Blue's back was amazing and a sunrise trip kayaking was breathtaking. We hope to return again soon! And we highly recommend this amazing home to anyone!

Calypso Blue is an amazing home away from home... it is absolutely beautiful inside and out and comfortable for friends and family of all ages. Our family had an amazing time and we are leaving with memories for a lifetime and fun stories to tell! We plan to come back yearly. If you go out for a run watch out for the dogs! And if you hear a knock on the door it may be a friendly crab we called Norbert. When you take a float to the ocean keep your rear out of the sea urchin beds! Dont get sideways with a wave while kayaking. Never be in a hurry - island time is real and dinner at Over the Edge can be really slow. Go there early or late. And finally always wear a blanket of sunscreen! On a serious note Calypso Blue has it all!!! We never wanted to leave the refreshing pool while our stare got lost in the ocean waves. The kids loved hunting for hermit crabs and building sand castles. Snorkeling off the beach couldn't be beat. There are amazing sea animals right behind this house. But if you do go out for some extracurriculars, DON'T miss a trip to Stingray City, the Big Reef snorkeling or Starfish Point. Also Rum Point has great entertainment and food. And Kaibo Beach has amazing food as well. Tukka is a fantastic restaurant as well, and although slow when we were there, the food was good. Cant wait to stay at Calypso Blue next time!!!

This is our second time at Calypso Blue and we always have great experiences! You absolutely need to snorkel in your own backyard! Followed by a dip in your own pool! Maybe kayaking in the morning and soaking up sun in the afternoon, Calypso Blue provides everything that you would expect from a 5 star resort! Over the Edge Cafe is a must for lunch or dinner and of course Tukka is an excellent dinner place with different dinner themes. We will be back again I'm sure!

We loved our stay at this beautiful house.We d'id the dolphin lovers swim at dolphin discovery which our 4 yr old loved. That day also included a trip to the turtle farm, but wouldn't have been worth it if that was all we did that day. We loved snorkeling right off the beach and sent alot of time in the pool with the kids. We also spent several mornings at Rum Point - arrived at 9:30am and got great beach chair location. A short drive from Rum Point is Starfish Point and saw several big starfish.
“Great Experience at Calypso Blue”out of 5
Reviewed by Tracy A on 03/29/2016
My wife, my daughters (ages 10 and 13), along with my parents (in their 70's) had the good fortune to stay at Calypso Blue in March 2016 and all of us were extremely pleased with the choice for many reasons. There is its location on the North Side of Grand Cayman. Situated on a reef perfect for snorkelers of all skill levels, it is only about 10 minutes from the sandy beaches (and beach drinks) of Rum Point and about 15 minutes from the diving resorts of the East End. There is a small market within walking distance and several excellent restaurants -- Tukka, Bombay Chopsticks, and Rum Point Restaurant -- within a 20 minute drive. There are local attractions nearby , such as the Crystal Caves and the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Gardens. The home's setting is beautiful, and although there are nearby homes, it feels secluded and private. The house itself has recently been remodeled and three of the four downstairs bedrooms face the sea and open onto a screened porch and the pool deck. All four bedrooms downstairs bedrooms were master-sized and well furnished, with comfortable beds and remodeled bathrooms. There are loft bedrooms on the second floor, which we did not use. The kitchen had all new top-shelf appliances and a center island that was perfect for getting the family together for breakfast or lunch, and a formal dining room for dinner. The laundry room was equipped with brand new washer and dryer, Two large living rooms with large screen TV's made for comfortable evenings watching March Madness, with the patio doors open and the warm breeze blowing in. The pool was well-maintained and overlooked the ocean, and the views from the home, deck and pool were stunning. All of my prior stays in Grand Cayman were at resorts on Seven Mile Beach, and I found Calypso Blue to be a fantastic and economically viable alternative for a large party staying during the busy Spring Break season, and I will certainly book it on return trips.

Most amazing vacation ever!!!! This house is perfect. We had 2 families with 4 kids total. I don't even know where to start. The location is great. It's close enough to restaurants and shopping, but no touristy crowds. Easy to get around. Minutes to Rum Point. The house itself is absolutely beautiful. It is immaculate even. The renovations are spot on, well appointed kitchen, tasteful decor, great washer/dryer. You won't need anything. The bedrooms are spaced out nicely, comfortable mattresses, lovely bathrooms and plush towels. And then you go out back! The ocean view is to die for - amazing snorkeling in your backyard (bring water shoes). Lots of beach towels and plenty of chairs. The pool is perfect - larger than it looks in pictures. The manager and owner check in to make sure everything is ok and see if you need anything. If you are considering renting a private home, I highly recommend this house! We went to 7MB for a day and could not wait to get back to the house to escape the crowds. We are already trying to figure out when we can return!!!

We have stayed here both last year and this year for vacation. The house has been completely redone and updated. It was amazingly clean. I don't honestly know how those cleaners get the place so clean! I want to know their tricks. The house is exceptionally spacious and accommodated our party, from a baby to senior citizens, so well. The screened in porch, the sliding doors that spread wide open, the pool (I like that the pool is on the larger side compared to other houses.), the kayaks, plenty of bathrooms (even a tub if needed for the baby), the open kitchen, two TVs, and on and on. The location also can't be beat. Snorkel in either direction for as far as you want to go, and you'll see great coral and abundant sea life with a depth of water that is perfect for kids or people who don't like to snorkel in water over their heads. Flounder, stingrays, lobster, angel fish, butterfly fish, and seemingly resident huge parrot fish and SO much more! There is a grocery store within a short walk with most all that we needed. Rum Point is a short drive away for a perfect beach and if you want to see some people. And then when you've had your people-fix, head back to your perfect beach get-away. Traveling group: Spouse/Partner Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.

I booked Calypso Blue for my family to gather to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were a party of 8 adults and 5 children - 2 six year olds, 1 four year old and 2 under a year old. If I had to design a beach house for our group, I would have been Calypso Blue. Upon arrival we were struck by cleanliness and comfort of the property. The home fit us perfectly and with the newly renovated interior it was terrific. Nothing has been spared to make you right at home. The kitchen has all the needed utensils available, great new appliances throughout the kitchen and laundry room. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The upstairs bedrooms were perfect for the kids. The outside pool and beach area is great. You need beach footwear when entering the surf, but you will enjoy some great snorkeling right off your own very private beach. There was a caretaker that stopped by to make sure the pool was clean and working properly, and the property manager was readily available when we reached out with a few questions. There were plenty of great places to dine and have a few cocktails in the area. Our group rented a couple of vans for the week, so there were quite a few day trips all around the island. I found this vacation to be one that we all will cherish for years to come, and Calypso Blue was more than we could have asked for. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a clean, fresh, well maintained and managed property.

Outstanding Villaout of 5

spent a week at Calypso Blue with 4 other family members including a one year old. The house was amazing. We walked in to a clean, cool and inviting oceanfront villa. The house was spotless upon arrival which immediately made us feel welcome. Calypso Blue was in an excellent location, away from the hustle and bustle of 7 mile beach which was exactly what we were looking for. I agree with the last reviewer - the house was nice and clean and had a very functional floor plan. With two new bedrooms upstairs and recent renovations completed I am sure it is even more idyllic way to spend your vacation. There is a large patio out back (screened-in) and we took full advantage and spent quite a bit of time relaxing in the shade with the calm tradewinds keeping us cool. We also loved the pool and pool deck with plenty of room to spread out the lounge chairs and swim in the pool with family. There is also a large sandy beach with easy access to snorkel at the shoreline (wear water shoes). What impressed me most was the great floor plan including a nice wing so if you go with two or more families there is room to spread out and plenty of privacy. The kitchen was huge and well equipped. We also found the cleaning crew to be very friendly even checking in to make sure everything was satisfactory after our arrival late in the day. Overall we highly recommend Calypso Blue and can't wait to go back to enjoy the all new interior!! This was a family vacation we will never forget.

This was our first trip to the Caymans - what a wonderful way to start by coming into this home to see such a beautiful ocean view! So many creatures to see during snorkeling.
