About Nicole Ritch

Hello, my name is Nicole Ritch; my friends call me Nikki.

As a Cayman Islands native, I am delighted to welcome you to our island and share my knowledge of its heritage, history and things to explore.

If you’ve never been to Cayman before, NO WORRIES! I’m here to answer all of your questions, give advice or help arrange car rentals, watersports activities, wedding planners, and general concierge services.

Being local I have experienced firsthand the culinary delights served by various restaurants on the island. From small locally run restaurants to 5-star award-winning restaurants; just ask and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Looking for a night out on the town? I keep my eyes out for the best clubs to party or romantic places to dance under the stars. I’ve got you covered!

I will meet you at the house for check-in; give you a walk through and hand over the keys. I always make sure to have time for your questions and get you off to a great start. I'm also on call during your stay.

Delivering real Cayman style hospitality is what I strive for. My guests leave feeling they have their own Cayman home and a Caymanian friend always happy to receive them as family.

Welcome to Nikki's Place, your Cayman home!

Nicole Ritch purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've only had great experiences with our VR site, but when I write these reviews, I always try to include a note or two for future guests of things that weren't quite as expected or things to keep in mind when considering if the property is right for them. I don't have any such addendum's for Nicole's place. Everything from the original communication at the booking request, to check-in, to her generous gift of DELICIOUS jerk chicken on our second night there, to her helpful shopping recommendations, to check out was a smooth, comfortable and wonderful experience. The home slept our party of 12 (including an 11, 5 and 9 month old) comfortably. We made good use of the fantastic media room in the evenings, and cooked a host of great meals in the completely stocked kitchen, with groceries from the store a stone's throw away. Our week in Grand Cayman was perfect and it all started with this house. Thank you, Nicole!

The house was impeccable . Nikki was the best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious. Kitchen appliances were up to date and had everything you would need. Washer and dryer in the house. Location was great. Across the street from a shopping center and the beach. Nikki was always available and went above and beyond to help us in excursions and activities. Great stay! Would totally come back !

Nice large vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nikki's Place! This is a nice large home with plenty of space for our group of 9. For this price it is worth the 5 star rating. We enjoyed the short drive to the beach and the close proximity to the grocery store. We were glad we had a rental van because the street is busy and doesn't really have a shoulder to walk on. We also loved the closeness to Heritage Kitchen and highly recommend eating there during your stay. Overall a great vacation home on a beautiful island!

Really nice, spacious house in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family group staying in this house for a week. The house is very nice, spacious, in a convenient location for activities around West Bay and Seven Mile Beach. The owner, Nikki, was fantastic-- readily accessible if we needed anything. She brought us jerk chicken made by her mother one night for dinner, absolutely scrumptious. I would definitely recommend the house to anyone needing a place to accommodate a large group for a vacation in Grand Cayman.

Great home to stay in for a week in West Bay.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for our interests, wonderful hostess (Nicki), and a home large enough to spread out our 6 family members. The convenience of a supermarket and small restaurants in walking distance was a bonus. West bay beaches were super and less than 0.5 mi away. Diving out of West Bay dock was nice as it was less than a 5 minute drive. Traffic in front of the house is busy but once inside, the noise of traffic was silenced by the good construction and windows. We would not hesitate to return to Nicki’s place.

Our family had a fantastic vacation in a great home on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 3 children had the best vacation ever. The location of the property and the amenities of the house were great. There are lots of beautiful homes in beautiful Gran Cayman . What sets this place apart from all the rest is the host Nikki.

She is fabulous. We expected the usual tour of the house , explaining all the features and where everything is and how it works and she did that. What we did not expect is all the special care and help that she provided.

Because of delays in our flight, we arrived late, Nikki explained that her Mother had a great restaurant where she specialized in jerk chicken. Nikki arranged for a special dinner for all of to be prepared and delivered to our new home. To me, that is going above and beyond. But that was just the first day. She made arrangements for a 9 passenger rental vehicle and drove my son and I to the location to pick up the vehicle, all the while , telling us about the special attractions on the island. I could go on and on about our host Nikki but all I really want to say in this review is that she is the best host we have ever experienced and having a great host is extremely important in making your vacation to any island property. Memorable.

We got lucky, thanks Nikki. Hope to see you again soon.

Frank and family

LOL Happy to share our back road knowledge with you. A big thank you to Emily and Sheena for sharing their girls night out with me! Thank you for leaving the house in excellent condition. I hope you all return soon! Much love! Your friend & host, Nikki

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Take the two minute stroll over in the morning for all you can eat pancakes and a gourmet coffee. There is also a local fish fry restaurant steps away.
