Beach Notes

While Grand Cayman is only 22 miles wide some guests prefer to be closer to Georgetown and Seven Mile Beach for day trips. Villa Mora is only 5-10 minutes from George Town and the beaches on the west coast of the island.

The villa enjoys a sandy beach area, however, guests need to be mindful that this is a marine area with a coral reef and wading in the water will require hard-soled pool shoes or fins. 

This is not the perfect barefoot beach for swimming. It is a marine environment and protected. One can walk either way on the beach and barely see a soul. This is a residential neighborhood and not a tourist area.

The south of the island usually enjoys a pleasant gentle breeze that keeps any insects at bay and obviates the need for a screened porch. 

Driving west of the house will take you towards George Town and there is a very nice spot called Smith Cove with barefoot swimming and snorkeling.  Dart Beach is also there as well and open to the public.

For more barefoot swimming on Seven Mile Beach, you can swim at Royal Palms, Governor's Beach, the "Public " Beach (all beaches are technically public) and Tiki Beach near the Kimpton, as well as snorkel at Cemetery Reef. 

Nice beach with amazing views. Excellent snorkeling out at the reef.  Shallow water with sea grass entry. Nice for kayaking and paddle boarding. Swimmable once the water is deep enough.

Second time around


         
Review by Deb H. on 02/17/2018

We spent a week last February at Vila Mora. That was our second time staying there and we very much enjoyed the upgrades from the previous year. The new outdoor kitchen was fantastic and we enjoyed many evenings cooking, dining and relaxing out there. The additional bedroom on the first floor was great for us as we had three generations along for the vacation! We love it there! Close to Georgetown but away from the traffic when you want to enjoy the peace and quiet of South Sound. We will be back in February 2019 for our third time! Can\'t wait!

Perfect Villa and View

After much anguish deciding on a property for our winter trip away from the cold, we settled on Villa Mora. We made the right choice, and would highly recommend this home to others as well! The main home has some much room we never felt cramped at all. The bedrooms were all large and comfy, living area enormous, kitchen well stocked. The guesthouse was nice for some of us to get some morning sleeping in!!! Views are phenomenal. Location is convenient to a dozen restaurants, bars, grocery, 7 mile beach, shopping, fish market, Smith Cove, airport, everything. Wee are hoping to make a return trip soon!

Our Favorite Vacation


         
Review by Walkers on 03/17/2018

This marks our favorite villa we have ever rented. The home is huge and the views better than anywhere we have been in the caribbean. We chose this home based on other guest reviews, talking with Grand Cayman Villas and we could not have been happier with our choice! The home is obviously well taken care of by the owners and it shows. The pool - well that may be the gem of the property! At least 75 feet long. Couple in the group did laps daily. kayaking is nice though you will need pool shoes on in the water and best to go out 100 feet where the water is deeper. Local restaurants were wonderful - Grand Old House, The Wharf, Agua were favorites. Checken! Chicken! for lunch. We rented a van from marshalls and ventured around the island. It is a small island - tough to get lost. The road hugs the coastline for the most part. Took us a day to figure out, but speed limits are posted in MPH. Visit the blow holes, Botanic Gardens, 7 MileBeach, Hell, Rum Point. Best activity was a private charter to the stingrays through George at Silver Thatch Charters. All in all a perfect trip.

Birthdays and Graduations!!

We loved our stay at Villa Mora!! This house is everything we were looking for! We have a big family and there was plenty of room for all of us. The best day we had was taking the kayaks out! The water has some grass in the shallow parts, but once you get out it\'s perfect! Working on convincing the family to come back next year 🙂

We Had the Best Time!

Right when we all walked into the house all we could say was WOAH!! Both of our families were blown away by how nice the house was! The property manager gets back to you real fast with any issues or questions you have. All in all we had the best time in Villa Mora!! Can\'t wait to come back!!

Wonderful Grand Cayman Trip


         
Review by Ambrose on 07/28/2018

Our group enjoyed our trip to Grand Cayman and our stay at Villa Mora. The pictures really do no justice to the home. The location is fab - so close to restaurants, George Town bars and 7 Mile Beach. While many parts of the island were inundated with sargassum seaweed, Villa Mora was spared for the most part. 7 Mile beach as well. People were friendly all over the island and we did venture out alot.

Our Favorite Trip

Villa Mora was everything we wanted and more! We picked up snorkel equipment from Silver Thatch and used them everyday! We mainly cooked on our trip (the grocery store is super close) but the few times we did go out we fell in love with the Czech Inn Grill in the East End! We\'ve been talking about those ribs ever since we got back haha! This trip was one of our favorites. We loved staying at Villa Mora!!!

Breathtaking Home


         
Review by Sydney on 06/16/2018

This place blew our minds when we first walked in. The openness to the exterior is breathtaking honestly. We spent most of our days lounging by the pool. The only problem is that the house is so nice you don\'t want to leave!! The best part of our trip was by far the snorkel charter. We had the best time with George! We also hired a chef to cook for us and we all agreed it was some of the BEST food we\'ve ever had! Villa Mora has a special place in our hearts now!

Fabulous Vacation Estate


         
Review by Ted on 08/08/2017
5 out of 5
After several years of vacationing in the Caribbean islands, we found that Villa Mora will give you everything to enjoy a great vacation.  The home is well cared for by the owner and property manager.  The accommodations were as pictured/advertised and comfortable.  Yes, every vacation home has issues, but the villa only has a few of them and they will not impact your positive experience staying at the estate. This home is centrally located in a nicely manicured residential area (grocery stores 5 min away, and the Seven Mile Beach area is very close).  Communication with the rental company, Grand Cayman Villas, and the property manager is seamless and there is always someone that cares about your vacation experience.  We used the cleaning service mid-week, coordinated with the property manager.  The décor of the home was contemporary and we loved the elephant!! Overall the vacation experience at Villa Mora was wonderful and we were sad to leave at the end of the week. Maybe next year...
Manager Response:

Thank you for the kind words. Please come back soon!!!

Best Friendcation Ever!

Why can I say?  It's not everyday 9 people can go on vacation together and all have a good time...well it happened at Villa Mora.  A perfect house with great amenities to accommodate a lot of couples.  Every room was a master suite and they all had great views of the ocean. It didn't matter though b/c we were having too much fun hanging out together in the main living areas that had equally amazing views or the pool.  We were determined to go out in the ocean despite the sea grass in the shallow areas but we read reviews before that recommended water shoes and we all brought them.  I also purchased a 6 man Island raft to take us out past the grass which made for some really funny adventures out to the "crystal blue water". We hired Remy Azavedo from Rent-A-Chef to come cook us an amazing reef & beef dinner on our first night which we enjoyed at the outdoor dining table watching the sunset.  We also rented a boat through Silver Thatch Charter and George was our amazing captain who took us on a private tour to stingray city (A MUST) and snorkeling. We had so much fun at the house we didn't do much else.  We did venture down to the Ritz for lunch one day and cocktails and lunch another at the Kipton which both have great views on 7 mile beach. It's easy to get cabs but it does add up if you need to get out a lot.  One thing to add is how nice everyone on the Island is.  You really feel safe no matter where you are.  My recommendations: go out to the crystal blue water off the beach at the house, have a dance party in the living room, and bring a group of friends that you want to have lasting memories with.

Villa Mora was excellent !!!!!!!

We stayed a week with our families and we got married on the property, it was beautiful, the house has everything you need. Lots of room for everyone. Pool and the Jacuzzi were great, we didn't use the beach area much but it was beautiful.

This is the life - private beach and luxury living


         
Review by Frequent Traveller on 11/30/-0001

The house and location live up to the photos! The home and guest house layout is a little odd, but eleven of us managed just fine for our 8 day stay. The main living area and back yard/view are stellar! There was space for all of us to lounge comfortably indoors and outdoors. The property manager was very responsive to our calls (for extra house keys, early check in, etc.). Quick drive to grocery, liquor store (east) or Georgetown (northwest). The water off the beach is very shallow with a large expanse of sea grass, but if you go out past that, there are some nice reef formations well inside the breakers. There is a little current west-to-east, but nothing that this non-athletic snorkeler couldn't handle. Don't bother trying to walk out to any depth - just put on your fins on the beach, and slide into the water.
