We stayed in this house before and it very comfortable with amazing views.
Review by David
It\'s a nice place to take the stress off and relax. The floor plan is set up for privacy with a large group.
This is a perfect place for multiple families. Stunning views
Review by Kristen
Perfect place for our group of 2 families with 4 adults and 4 young teenagers. Highlights include stunning, picture-perfect views, incredibly kind owner who lives next door (unobtrusive but available, upbeat lovely man), dock in which you can see tarpon during the day and bioluminescent jellyfish at night, private beach with 2 hammocks perfect for reading and snoozing. The water is shallow past the dock so very easy and safe snorkel conditions for kids. The beach has sand but you definitely need water shoes for the water (all the kids loved it). The house has a fabulous waterfront porch perfect for card games and morning coffees. The house has an unusual configuration but was great for our group. Main living area has a master bedroom and a bathroom (shower) and then a room with a double and twin beds and bathroom (shower). The same floor has a third bedroom which is a mirror image of the room w the double and twin beds and bathroom but you get to it from the front porch- no access from the main living area. So, perfect if you have older kids like we did or adults who want privacy but don\'t need immediate access to the rest of the group. Kitchen is fine, has the stuff you need and there is a grill outside. We also rented the downstairs suite, which is great. It has a master bedroom, bathroom, small kitchen, small living room w couch and 2 chairs and a screened in small porch (table and 2 chairs has view of the ocean- lovely for breakfast ). This space would be ideal if the group had a family w an infant or toddlers as they could have a place for naps and early bedtimes.
Locationwise we were happy w it although we were intentionally looking for a spot away from the tourist areas. 20 min drive to Rum Point, Starfish Cove and the closest grocery store, 5 min drive to Botanical Gardens, Lighthouse restaurant, 40 min from Georgetown and 7 mile beach.
This is a relaxed, put your feet up beach house getaway. We would definitely stay here again!
A little piece of paradise
Review by W.C.
My husband and I stayed for several nights in the downstairs apartment. It had everything we needed for the perfect stay. The bed slept well. The bedroom and common areas are equipped with their own AC units, allowing you to have each area set to the temperature of your liking.
The view of Frank Sound is breathtaking. We will definitely come back again!

This place was absolutely great! Like I stated in the title, my wife loved it and she\'s pretty particular! In fact, everyone in our group of seven was beyond pleased and impressed. I was a little nervous due to the lack of reviews when we booked it, so I wanted to make sure it got its due justice so you would have a better feel about this amazing place.
The pictures are an accurate description of the villa. It is simple but clean and comfortable and well kept. The kitchen was stocked with every appliance you might need. We cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner regularly there during our 8 day stay. You have a full size refrigerator. (Stop at Foster’s right by the airport or Hurley’s on your way out) The three bedrooms upstairs are all very private and have their own full bathroom. The room downstairs is literally its own little apartment with full kitchen, living room, etc. This place will hold 8 with complete privacy and 12 will fit quite comfortably if they don\'t mind sleeping on a pull-out couch. The view is excellent and the environment is serene. We hardly saw another soul minus the neighbors on your left who are extremely nice and friendly but also private and will not bug you. This is not a long expansive beach but there is sand and it is nice and clean. Right along the shore there is some rock and it stays fairly shallow (1-3 feet) with some grass so it\'s not going to be a place you\'re probably going to sit in the water. Even being on the south shore there is a nice reef so you won\'t fight too many waves. There was always a nice breeze blowing in from the south/east so mornings and evenings on the outdoor screened-in deck were outstanding. The air conditioning works great and keeps the inside nice and cool. They have nice chairs to lay out on and a little gazebo with a couple hammocks. Near the end of the trip the girls decided to get massages on the beach under the palm trees. The whole place really has a nice vibe.

There is some snorkeling if you go out and around the dock to your left. Past the grass it will drop from being so shallow to 3-6 feet deep. About 30 yards out from that dock on the left there is a concrete block that held some lobsters and lion fish. One day my buddy and I swam all the way out to the reef. There is a little coral out there but probably not worth the swim. Spend your time taking a 10 minute trip to one of the many good spots on the north shore (Cayman Kai public beach around to Rum Point is EXCELLENT).
Paradise at Mahogany Cove
Review by Bill & Family
Our week long stay at Mahogany Cove was absolutely fabulous. My family loved walking out of the house on onto the private, sandy beach. We were very happy with the quiet location on the south side of the island and away from Georgetown and other resort areas. The villa is very close to the Botanical Garden, Mastic Trail, the East End, and a number of good restaurants and fish fries. It is also an easy drive to Rum Point.
The house was clean and well maintained, and met all of our needs for a vacation rental. Given the prices of villas on the north shore, Mahogany Cove was a true value. We would definitely stay there again if/when we return to Grand Cayman Island
Most relaxing week + about ever!

If this response can reach, Burns the manager of the property, we want to say thank you so much for the week at Mahogany Cove. We had an unbelievable time. For those who do not know, this is on the laid back non commercial side of the island. Do not stay here if you want to go out to the bars, party or go out to eat at upscale lunches and dinners every day, you are too far away. However if you want an amazingly relaxing no schedule, quiet, with your own beach i say yes. Burns and his family was unbelievably kind to use, i will not give the details as i do not want anyone to expect the same, but they made the trip for me and my 7 yr old way more than we would ever expect. The only issue we had at all which i believe was an isolated indecent is our code to enter was incorrect, we arrived late at night and did not have a cell phone that worked yet. Once we reached, our contact there, we were in and all was fine, just a little stressful for an hour or so while our $250 groceries were warming in the car and we had visions of sleeping on the beach chairs and hammocks. The house is set up very beach style, not luxurious but it was clean, lots of towels etc for swimming and bathing, everything worked as it should we had no issues with the house. Activities we did: Dolphin swim at the adventures location,(scam alert - they will try to take you for as much money as they think you will pay for your photos, haggle hard we got ours for 50% of where they started, hike the nature trail - lost of animals, parrots didn't see a sole. Jet ski to stingray city - go with the guys at Fat Fish, i wouldn't bother calling anyone else, guys were awesome and the ski's go 50mph what a blast!!!
Snorkel everywhere - smiths cove, the morrits dock, the house docks, rum point, etc. visit starfish point, drive there close to rum point, i forgot to say you must have a rental car to stay here, we used alamo and thought we got a great deal and all new cars!!!
