Overview

About the property

One Bedroom, Tranquil & Very Close To The Beach

What a great place to relax and enjoy peace and tranquility while taking in the perpetual sounds of the ocean waves! This is a real island vacation villas. Palm trees on the beach, unpopulated beach and pool steps from the front door, roosters crowing on occasion, a long shoreline running into Barkers State Park next door for quiet walks, and West Bay; local island experience. This is not the busy hotel lined, Seven Mile Beach with cars whizzing by. A newly rehabbed one bedroom condo featuring a king size bed, sleeper sofa in living room, queen size blow-up bed, central A/C, granite counter tops in kitchen, stainless steel appliances, refrigerator with ice maker, full size oven, microwave oven, toaster oven, dishwasher, in-unit washer/dryer, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, smart TV, beach towels, linens, a few pool toys, BBQ grill, a blender for your island drink creations and outdoor patio furniture to sit on the front porch while enjoying an up close ocean peaceful view listening to the ocean waves roll in!

WI-Fi and cable/smart TV included. Receive and make calls to the United States for free using the Magic Jack phone in the unit.

It is a Cayman law that every rental must provide a "meeter/greeter" person and that person here is George. He will meet you when you arrive and open the doors and give you a tour of the property. Any questions you may have he will be there to assist not only when you arrive but throughout the week. George is also the property manager at Villas Pappagallo so he knows almost everything about the property and the island! Need a rental car? Talk to my friend Oraine at Budget across the street from the airport. Shop his rate and compare but tell him you heard about Budget from Pappagallo #6.

Head out to the dock and check out the ocean, take a walk down the beach past Barkers State Park, star gaze at night, check out the swimming pool or walk 37 steps to the beach!

Decisions, decisions...so much for nothing to do!!

About Greg

I first came to Grand Cayman from my hometown of Chicago over 25 years ago to scuba dive. Since then I have fallen in love with the beautiful island, the people and all the underwater fish that I made friends with! Currently I reside in Chicago by Soldier Field, and now I have become the owner of a wonderful, get-away-from-it-all island condo at Villas Pappagallo.

Greg purchased this condo in 2014

Why Greg chose West Bay

Villas Pappagallo is a special place. So calm, relaxing, and quiet. There is no noise from traffic but maybe you'll hear a rooster crowing and if you listen closely you may be able to hear a few parrots off in the distance squawking about something very important. A beautiful blue ocean greets you every day when you open the blackout curtains and start your day with bright sunshine and an ocean view. You have no choice but to look out over the sea and palm trees swaying in the breeze from this prime location. Listen to the ocean waves on the front porch washing up on the shore. Walk to the beach just steps out your front door and relax enjoying beauty and tranquility!

What makes this condo unique

Quiet. Nicely groomed grounds with a beach atmosphere is what Villas Pappagallo is all about. Getting away from it all but yet still in touch with the rest of the world. Walk down the beach to Barkers State Park, right next door and discover what treasures the sea has washed up on shore. Did I mention quiet?

Tranquil and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the condo. Lots of extras: Plenty of spices for cooking and the kitchen was very well equipped. There was sunscreen if we needed it (and even a hat!). Bed was very comfortable. The use of the Magic Jack phone was a nice perk too! Our cleaning deposit was promptly returned without any hassle. The colorful chickens outside were entertaining, they love coming to the patio to drink water. Thank you Greg for a very pleasant stay!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Villas Pappagallo. Sorry the TV was not working properly but that is out of our control especially on an island. Even if you stayed at the Ritz Carlton, the cable would have been out. There is a backup Apple TV available in the unit in case the cable TV isn't working properly. When the cable TV goes out, it goes out for a lot of people on island but it is still the best service in the Caribbean. Welcome to island living!!

Really nice, well appointed condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here along with our elementary aged daughter for a week and really enjoyed it. Everything was clean and new, especially in the kitchen (which I loved). After being there a week, I realized how much we had overpacked. Between the washer/dryer and the beach towels provided, we probably could have gotten by with a backpack for each of us. Also, after tiring ourselves out at the beach during the day, the smart TV was a welcome evening distraction (where we could use our Netflix and Sling accounts to watch programming and the Olympics). Marji, the manager, and Greg, the owner, were responsive and helpful. The things I would advise potential visitors of are the following: 1) the community is VERY quiet, bordering on retirement village quiet. Worked for us because we were not looking for a lot of loud, drunk people in teeny bathing suits. 2) the pool and hot tub are not heated. My kiddo didn’t care at all and she and the one other kid there played and swam well into the evening (was way to cold for mommy).

3) you probably want a car if you stay here... it’s about 10 minutes to most of the nicer beaches and things to do. 4) Lastly, don’t believe all the ratings for the restaurants. I was disappointed by Pappagallo, Alfresco’s and West Bay diner (though the hubs liked West Bay he had breakfast, I had a sandwich). However, we LOVED The Catch - the Red Snapper and burgers were awesome. (Andrea, was our waiter 2x and he was tremendous!). Kaibo Yacht Club, by Rum Point, was also very good and tables right next to a beach where the kiddos can play in the sand and water.

Wonderful, Wonderful remote beach location!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy a quiet beach this is your spot! It is certainly the main attraction and beautiful! Many times we had the beach to ourselves despite our visit in December season. This condo has one of the best spots in the condo complex, just steps from the shore. Lots of nice chaise lounges, chairs and tables for guests to use at the beach out in the sun or under shade of the many palms that line the beach. Pool area was also very clean and nice with movable shade umbrellas and plenty of loungers. Hot tub was not hot but hey- who needs that when you're at the beach!!!

Condo is nicely decorated (modern/casual) and extremely clean! spotless, luxury white bath towels, spotless silverware and dishes/cookware, comfortable bed - just like home. Well supplied condiments, spices, etc that we added plenty to - pay it forward! All appliances were clean and welcoming -Coffee maker is of the 12 cup pot variety, blender and icemaker, dishwasher, convenient stacking washer/dryer in kitchen.

We found eating out on the island to be more expensive than the states so we were glad to have brought a whole suitcase of food, found a grocery a short drive away and enjoyed all our self prepared breakfast, lunches and a few dinners. With the money we saved, we'll be able to fund our return trip! We totally recommend this great condo.

Beautiful condo in gorgeous quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying 5 nights at Villa Pappagallo unit 6. The condo itself is beautiful and very comfortable. We went to Foster's grocery a few times and ate most of our meals in the condo. The grounds of Villa Pappagallo are so quiet and peaceful. We were often the only people at the beach or the pool. If you plan to go in the water, bring water shoes as the beach is very rocky. Nothing was too far of a drive - 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from seven mile beach. A few days we went to the beach in Seven Mile where the water is much clearer and calmer and the bottom is sandy. Overall a great place to stay!

Car: recommended

Experience the local flavor. Get away from the noise, traffic, crowds, bright lights and the hustle bustle of Seven Mile Beach. As soon as you exit the Tibbets Highway you realize that you have really made it to the island! Off the highway there is about a 2 mile ride through West Bay to Villas Pappagallo #6. Drive past the locals and get a real taste of island living. See the real people of Cayman that have lived in this old neighborhood many generations. At their homes you may see private gardens where they grow vegetables and fruit trees; some even have cows and horses on their land if you can spot them. There are a few local shops along the winding roads through this Cayman neighborhood. Careful driving....there are no sidewalks so people share the street with cars as they visit neighbors or walk to the market. There is even a local artist along the way with artwork for sale along the ride to Villas Pappagallo.

There is the West Bay Bicycle Loop that is an optional activity. Rent bikes and take the tour on two wheels. This is a nice way to slow down the pace, get a little exercise and see the sights up close. Maybe you'll get lucky enough to have an iguana pop out of the bushes and say hello to you! The chickens and roosters are allowed to run free on the island so watch out for those "bird brains!"

There is horseback riding within walking distance of Parrot 6. (Pappagallo means parrot) They are both run by independent companies that are located along the ocean, in the state park, just east of the unit.

There is also Barkers State Park located right next door to Villas Pappagallo property. Hike, bike or camp in this state park which is undeveloped but accessible for public use.

Pappagallo Restaurant is walking distance across the street. This restaurant speaks for itself. Not much needed to say about one of the top rated eating establishments on the island. Not affiliated with Villas Pappagallo, just built at the same time by the same builders.

The Turtle Farm is a few minute drive.

Cobalt Coast Dive Resort has Divetech Dive Shop based there which located on the ocean about a 5 minute drive west.

There are several shore dive spots along the ocean.

Turtle Farm is close by.

Hell, Grand Cayman is located in West Bay.

Dolphin discovery is also in West Bay too.
