Know Before You Go...

I think this villa would be perfect for a family vacation—it has three master bedrooms upstairs and a twin bedroom downstairs, and each bedroom is really well-sized. The views from the living area and master bedroom are amazing, especially at sunset. You can go snorkeling right behind the house as long as you have water shoes, and there’s also several snorkeling spots nearby. There are tons of pool toys and beach gear in a closet on the terrace, which is great because the pool is the perfect size for kids. The house has a fairly secluded location, and its also close to some lesser-known hot spots.

Beachfront with excellent snorkeling!

Christmas Palms is the perfect family vacation spot for anyone who loves to snorkel, wants peace and quiet, and doesn’t mind driving to popular spots. The villa sits on Old Man Bay on the north coast, half a mile from the Cayman Crystal Caves.

The property stretches to include a sandy lot next door, perfect for sunbathing. Snorkel right behind the villa at high tide, and make sure to bring water shoes. There’s also snorkeling nearby at Barefoot Beach, Rum Point, and Spott’s Beach. There are several pool toys and beach gear in the outdoor closet, and two kayaks so guests can explore the coast. Snooze in the hammock, or splash around in the pool. Rinse off in the outdoor shower before enjoying drinks around the fire pit. There are screened porches on either side of the terrace with seating. The living room is in between, with a flat screen TV, several windows, and comfortable furniture. The living room opens to the porch on one side and the kitchen on the other. The kitchen has a dining table, an open layout, and stainless steel appliances. Last on this level is the twin bedroom, which has a sitting area, access to the screened porch, and an adjacent bathroom.

Upstairs, the balcony wraps around the ocean-facing side of the home, with loungers to take in the view. The largest master bedroom sits behind, with a king-sized bed, a living area, a wall of windows, and an ensuite bathroom. The second master bedroom has a king-sized bed, ensuite bathroom, and a study, and opens to its own screened porch. The third master bedroom has a king-sized bed, its own screened porch, and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower. All three bedrooms have walk-in closets. There’s also a pull out sofa downstairs in the living area.

# of Reviews 2 for Christmas Palms Villa

Wonderful stay, clean and modern, top choice villa

Christmas Palms Villa, Cayman villa review

If you are looking for privacy and a fully-equipped modern villa, look no further. This villa is spacious and has everything you need. The rooms are very clean, and the furniture and bathrooms are in very good shape. You don’t have the sandy Seven Mile beach in front of you, but sea access is only a few feet away from the infinity pool and easily doable with the kayak or some beach sandals. A hundred feet out, there is a decent snorkeling spot with corals and fish.

Juanita, the manager, is very responsive and I have no doubt she would fix whatever needs to be done, unless you don’t have an issue at all like we did.

Groceries can be bought within a 5-mile range and the restaurants nearby are also worth trying.

Mosquitoes come out after sunset, so be sure to use bug repellent or sit in the outside lounge/dining room behind the net windows.

All in all, Christmas Palms is a really cool villa inside and out for people who don’t mind being a little away from the city (30 mins) and prefer making the villa their home for the stay. Bring along some friends to fill the house, or keep it to yourself like we did as a newly engaged couple.

The rate reduction due to construction 150 feet away is a goody from the owner, but let’s be honest, we never saw the workers and hardly heard anything. If there was some noise at all, it blended with the birds and the sea.

This is a luxurious but affordable villa, go for it!

I have absolutely no complaints at all regarding WhereToStay. Sharon knows her business, and she was very responsive before the vacation and provided us with everything we needed from directions to the villa, sightseeing, contacts, and rentals. Quick and service oriented, WhereToStay made booking and our vacation easy and better than the average experience. Thanks!

Christmas Palms Villa Grand Cayman

Christmas Palms Villa, Cayman villa review

Six of us stayed at the Christmas Palms the second week of December 2018. It is a nice villa just east of Old Man Bay on the North side of the island. The villa was very clean on arrival.

It is in a very quiet area with just one villa next door, which is divided by a fence. The villa sits directly on the water with access just down a few stairs. There are three master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a room downstairs with two single beds. The rooms were very soundproof. There is a family room with two couches and TV. The TV had three remotes, which was confusing. A single remote for running everything would have been easier. The instructions for the TV are not accurate. We were able to make it work to watch the TV and the AppleTV.

The kitchen is very nice with everything we needed to prepare meals, although the sharp knives were dull. There is a six-person table in the kitchen as well as a screened-in dining area with seating for 8. There were some spices and seasonings in the cupboard left from past renters.

The pool is not heated, and we did not use it because it was cold.

Two kayaks are provided. Life vests, pool toys, some kiddy beach toys, masks, and snorkels can be found in a closet on the west side of the villa.

There is also a cooler in the kitchen closet.

The back doors to the pool and the doors to the dining area are a bit tricky to close. To open, push down. To close, push the door handle up to engage the lock.

The waterfront is not a beach, but rocky. You must have foot protection to walk this area, because some of the rocks are sharp.

There is seaweed and garbage that has washed up and accumulated at the bottom of the stairs behind the house and across the grounds. When the wind and waves picked up, the seaweed and garbage moved out but returned later.

Snorkeling from the villa is very nice, with a large area of brain coral and fish about 40 ft away. Look for the dark round patch straight out between Christmas Palm villa and the house just west, then swim westward to see more reefs. It’s best to go during high tide, but we had no problem at low tide.

There are a few things to know: toilet paper, paper towels, and garbage bags are not provided. There were starters, but you will need to buy some for the rest of your stay, unless prior guests leave any extras they did not use.

We had no problems with the a/c, but read the directions before use. Leaving a door to the house open for 1 minute or more changes the a/c to 79°. The a/c downstairs is separate from the upstairs. The control for upstairs is in the main master suite, so if someone in another room opens their door to get a fresh breeze or hear the waves, the a/c in all the rooms goes to 79°. The a/c process was not a problem for us, and it makes sense to save energy.

The closest full-service grocery store is the IPA in Savanah. It is about 20 minutes away, toward the west. It had everything we were looking for, including a large selection of fresh produce and meats. They have a large buffet of pre-made items such as hot roast beef, turkey, potatoes, rice, veggies, soups, salads, etc. It’s nice if you don’t want to cook. There is another store closer, which is about a 10-minute drive east, that has basics to get you started.

Chickens like to hang out in the area. They are all over the island. A local told me that when the last hurricane hit, the farmers let all of their stock free. We were joined daily in the back area by some of the locals.

Most prices you see on the island are Cayman Dollars. Keep this in mind if you’re paying with US Dollars. $1.00 Cayman Dollar equals 0.80 US Dollars.

Silver Thatch Guest Services provides free items like coolers, snorkel gear, Waterproof Bluetooth speakers, Apple TV, etc. I recommend calling ahead to reserve them before you show up. They also offer a discount card for some restaurants in the area. They also offer $100.00 off the price of a charter boat. Six of us chartered for just a little more than going on one of the tour boats.

Make sure to allow extra time for returning to the airport. There is a traffic jam that seems to happen constantly due to roundabouts and traffic patterns. It starts a few miles before arriving at the airport. It took us about 30 minutes to get through it.
