This place was an amazing place to stay! My family and I stayed here at Windward Cove for a week. The view from the extensive closed in by a screen patio was exceptional. Having our private beach was incredible. There was good swimming and snorkeling to be had, even just outside our house! The layout of the interior of the house worked well too. Four bedrooms each separated nicely and a spacious common area. This place even had a grill for outdoor BBQ-ing which we took advantage of. Lastly, this place was only a 20 minute drive to our favorite place on the island Rum Point Beach Club. In summary, my family and I give Windward Cove 4 out of 4 stars! Sincerely, Gilad T & Family, MD 2/15/16

Maria & Jack – Again we have enjoyed the cozy relaxing picturesque appeal of Windward Cove. It’s comfortable and well supplied with everything anyone would need. Thanks! We did go to Georgetown a few times more this trip, as the weather wasn’t the best during our first week. Finally got to do Stingray city and go on the submarine! Worthwhile experiences, but always nice to come back to this house and unwind at the pool. Being here is an ideal way to vacation. Thanks for a great round 2! Jerry & Sylvia K. IL 1/20 - 2/4/16

Dear Maria & Jack, we have loved our week at Windward Cove. What a great place to introduce our five kids to the Caribbean! Our youngest was a dedicated hunter of hermit crabs, our middle two learned to crack coconuts. I loved having a fully equipped kitchen! And sitting on the veranda with a book & mojito. Thanks for recommending Ocean Frontiers, we had great snorkeling trips with them. Best Regards, Laurie M & Family, Washington, DC 8/12-8/21/15

We really enjoyed the beauty and layout of this island home. The kitchen was well equipped, the pool and ocean view is therapeutic. The well-stocked home and attention to details made our stay a memorable one. We highly recommend this pristine vacation mecca. Joanne P 1/3/15

It is gorgeous here at Windward Cove. We loved the house, the beach and the pool! Rum Point Beach Club was the “bestest” and the whole island was a wonderful experience! Love, Ken K & Family, Bergen County, NY 8/30/14

Had a great time here. Pool and beach were perfect for our 4 daughters who spent most of the week alternating between the two. Favorite places to eat were Kaibo and ironically, Cracked Conch, which is on the West Side of the island. This “hot” place is well worth the trip. Snorkeling out back we discovered tons of lobsters and starfish in the sandy patches. As for myself, scratched an item off of my bucket list this week and learned how to kitesurf up the road at The Sweet Spot.  If you enjoy abuse and nearly drowning J, I would highly recommend it! That said, after 6 hours of instruction, I was flying along the water, having my “Moment” of the trip. If you try, and the instructor tells you to push up and you push down instead, there are consequences, You. Will. Fly. Being so close to X-mas, it was strange being in the sand. However, Caymanians LOVE Christmas! We were driving back from Georgetown one evening and came upon a huge public display of x-mas lights at a private house. We walked around, took pictures, then came upon another one… Very enjoyable time here, giving serious consideration to another trip! George C & Family, PA & Guatemala 12/20/14

On a scale of 1-10 (10 being great) House–10, Pool–10, Kitchen–10 (even has a roasting pan), Beach–5 (sea grass) (Owner comment: The amount of sea grass during this guest's stay was due to a storm, this is not the norm) Restaurants: Big Tree BBQ–10, Tukka–10, Lighthouse–10+, Over the Edge–10+  The overall experience was great. The trip to Stingray City was great on the Harimbal – great crew. Fishing was fun. Galleries & shopping. Shipwreck view across from Tukka was great, it took a few times before we found it open. Well worth it. Pure Art on South Sound Road near Georgetown was good as well. It was really great (again great!!) to have all the beach towels & kids toys. John D. & Family, Santa Fe, NM Pittsburgh, PA Los Angeles, CA 12/23/15 - 1/4/16

It’s been a long time since we’ve been in Cayman. We were along 7-mile beach back then. But we are older now and have a different way of vacationing. Now we fell in love with the quiet East End area of Gun Bay. Maria & Jack, you have provided us with a home away from home. I love waking to a beautiful sunrise, having our coffee on the veranda, then watching the day turn into another “day in paradise”! Windward Cove is a cozy, quiet, comfortable and beautiful setting we want to enjoy again. Hope to see you next year. Jerry K, IL 1/15-29, 2015

VACATION IN PARADISE: If you want to be away from the tourist area in your own bit of paradise Windward Cove is for you. We spent a lovely week at this beautiful 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath home.
The home is set up with 2 bedrooms and a bath between them on either side of the house. It has a large living and dining room. The kitchen is fully stocked with dished, glassware, utensils and pots and pans. It has a large refrigerator, beautiful cooktop range and dishwasher. All the comforts of home. The screened in porch overlooking the deck and pool is so comfortable. The pool is amazing.
We loved being on the East End of Cayman. It is very relaxing and away from the tourist hotels and vacation rentals. Plenty of nice restaurants in the area if you don't want to drive to the 7 Mile Beach area.
We enjoyed staying at Windward Cove so much we only ventured to other beaches twice in 7 days
The house is everything you want in a vacation rental and more. James, NY, June 2014

HOME AWAY FROM HOME: This was our first trip to the island and we had a great time! Your house and property are beautiful. A home away from home but with a beautiful view, lovely beach, refreshing pool and the calming sound of the waves.
The island is beautiful and has so much to see that one week isn't long enough. We went snorkeling at 4 places, swam with the stingrays, visited the Turtle Farm and Botanical Garden.
The food is good and the people are very friendly. I took lots of pictures to remember our vacation to Grand Cayman. Jodie, IL 7/13/13

KIDS LOVED THE POOL, BEACH AND OCEAN; Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us! 3 minute drive to Ocean Frontiers can't be beat!
Our kids really loved the pool, beach and ocean. We will have fond memories of this trip for the rest of our lives!. Ray, FL 7/5/13

ONE OF OUR BEST CAYMAN VACATIONS: Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We loved the house - especially the screened-in porch.
My grandson loved the beach and pool. This has been one of our best Cayman vacations - and we have been coming to Grand Cayman for years! Carol, FL 6/29/13

WONDERFUL BRIGHT AND BREEZY HOME: Thanks so much for everything - from saving our reservation for many months, to providing a wonderful, bright & breezy home for us to spend vacation with our family. 
We had a fantastic time swimming, snorkeling, diving, eating and exploring. 
We hope to enjoy your wonderful home again! Jon & family, PA 5/15/13

ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME AND BEYOND: What an absolute joy to walk through the front door to see this beautiful home! The house provides all the comforts of home and beyond! 
From sitting on the comfortable porch, reliving the different snorkel trips, Stingray City, Sunset Sail cruise, Botanical Gardens, yoga, eating out and especially the companionship with friends. 
Wonderful place to be, hope to be back soon with friends and family. 
Thank you for this awesome experience! You're the best. 
A&S from WY April 2013

AWESOME: Awesome vacation rental, Awesome vacation with my family! 
Thank you, Lori M & family, WI April 2013

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED: I can't tell you enough how much we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Windward Cove! It was absolutely perfect. My family and I had a fantastic time on this island and at this villa. 
We have memories that will certainly last a lifetime! We hope to come back and do it all again some day! 
Charlene M, WI April 2013

TRULY FABULOUS STAY: My family and I had a truly fabulous stay. Your home was a pleasure to stay in. The beds and pillows were so comfortable, the sun porch was great and we loved and used the pool a lot!! 
I recommend anyone visiting the island, check out Stingray City! We had a guide take us deep sea fishing, then snorkel in the fish gardens (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful). I was actually swimming with a lionfish, barracuda, stingrays and so many other colorful fish! Our guides were fantastic. Captain Derrin and co-captain Glen really make you feel safe, reliable and let me tell you, they keep everything clean, clean, clean! 
Other things we did were Dolphin Discovery (that was cool), Turtle Farm (loved it), Atlantis Submarine (funny guide). All were pretty great to experience. 
Sitting around the house snacking, swimming, playing games with the family and re-capping our fun adventures of the days were some of our best moments. 
Thanks for sharing this great place with our families, memories made to last a lifetime. 
Angela & Family, WI April 2013

QUIET BEACH: We loved the house and quiet beach. We enjoyed activities on the island - Sting Rays, snorkeling and kayaking in the Mangroves. Betsy and Family, TN March 2013

We had a fabulous time at your beautiful beach house! Great location. Thumbs up to Tukka, Over the Edge, Vivine's, Dolphin Discovery, Sting Ray City and sandbar. 
We had a wonderful time and loved every minute! Thanks for everything. 
Coffee in your sunroom was the best. the gang from Colorado March 2013

ABSOLUTE FABULOUS TIME: We had an absolute fabulous time. This was a great family bonding time as well as a relaxing time for a set of busy siblings who rarely get to see each other. 
We were able to spend time cooking, crab hunting, talking, laughing and laying out reading until all hours of the day. 
We feel so thankful for the time we had in this beautiful house. 
Tukka was a wonderful restaurant and the cruise we took to Stingray City were just two of the many highlights of our blessed week. Greg & family, IN January 2013

AWESOME POOL: Thank you for the use of your house this week. It's a great home and your personal attention made us feel welcome. 
We were able to visit Rum Point, see the stingrays and ate at Kaibo while we were there. Both were great! I also loved horseback riding with Spirit of the West, I highly recommend them. 
I love the book you prepared with all the advice. It's very helpful. The pool is also particularly awesome. The girls spent a lot of time in there. The screened porch is the best I've seen. 
My husband and daughter found the coral reef out back. It was a little further than I was comfortable with, but I did a lot of kayaking. I loved having those for fun and exercise. 
I loved that I got to meet you two also, very nice personal touch. 
The large tree was perfect for providing shady sand areas as well as being a nice place for all the parrots, I saw quite a bit of them throughout the week. 
Thanks again! Brenda J. and family, VA July 2012

GREAT SPACE: We had a wonderful time at Windward Cove. Great space to enjoy and make memories. 
Will definitely keep Windward Cove in mind next time we come to this beautiful island. 
Thank you, Mark M. & Family TX June 2012

WONDERFUL ESCAPE: Thank you for sharing your home with our family. It is a slice of heaven and a wonderful escape. 
You had everything we could want or need here. 
The view, the pool and the location are all perfect! I have been to the island four times and your place has been the best so far! 
Thank you, Denise T. and family TX June 2012

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION: We had a wonderful family vacation at Windward Cove! 
Great snorkeling, happy hours, views, dinners together and walks. 
Also had a great fishing experience with Capt. Herman and snorkel excursion with Ocean Frontiers. 
Loved the house and the whole experience - great times and memories. 
Kerry S. and Family, MN April 2012

BUT HERE I FOUND A SPOT: I do not dive 
I do not snorkel 
I do not even swim 

But here I found a spot 
to relax 
to reflect 
and to study 

Ed, age 60 April 2012

WONDERFUL! DELIGHTFUL! Spectacular! Comfortable! Enjoyable! Relaxing! 
Rum Point - Great! Atlantis Submarines - Amazing! Cayman Luxury Charters - Unbelievable! 
Maria - beyond words, thanks for everything. It was a great fun week. You are the best. Bill J & Family, PA February 2012

TAKING HOME SO MANY MEMORIES: Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us this week! We are taking home so many memories - the ocean view, snorkeling, kayaking and relaxing by the pool. 
We loved Stingray City and all the wonderful restaurants. 
The weather was perfect - we were able to sit on the deck and stargaze every evening - saw 3 shooting stars! 
A perfect vacation in every way! Dave B and friends, MD & OH February 2012


What a wonderful place to decompress after our son's wedding, and to enjoy with family.  The house is lovely, comfortable and well-equipped; the setting is spectacular!  We swam, snorkeled, biked, kayaked, star-gazed and relaxed.  Cooked in and ate our: Vivine's, Tukka, The Italian Kitchen....all good!  Thanks for the very detailed information binder, the large, soft beach towels and cooking equipment we could use.  We loved the neighborhood too - a delight all around. Recommend Botanic Garden and Mastic Trail. Barbara A. & Family, PA/NC/CA, January 2012.


We can't imagine a more perfect setting. We loved the house, the porch, deck, pool and beach.  Enjoyed grilling and cooking in your well stocked kitchen. Lots of corners for members of our family to sneak off. Great selection of books - and we left a few of ours as well. We took a few drives to Georgetown, 7 Mile Beach and Rum Point - it reassured us that we were in the most perfect location on Grand Cayman. We hope to return next year! Marc R. & Family, NY Dec. 2010


We enjoyed our family vacation in your lovely home. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we relaxed and soaked up the sun.  The screened porch and pool added and extra touch to the beautiful view. We ate out most evenings, but next time we'll take advantage of Cost-U-Less and fix more meals in. Thanks! Bob M. & family, SD Dec. 2010


Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. The quiet and beauty of the location are perfect for relaxation and tranquility. We thoroughly enjoyed the screened porch for our meals & Rum Point was a closely wonderful experience (my children don't want to leave!) Mark W. & family, Mississippi, Dec. 2010



What a wonderful vacation! Your home was perfect - lots of space and with everything we needed.  The pool is lovely and our son built many sand castles on the beach.  Even the weather was fantastic, with only a few rain showers.  One of my favorite things is the location.  Away from the craziness of Georgetown and central to wonderful places.  We highly recommend Rum Point, great for snorkeling and hanging out.  Thank you for sharing your home with us.  We will be back!  Scott G. and family, NY. October 2010


We have enjoyed our stay so much that we don't want to leave.  Windward Cove is a wonderful combination of comfort, beautiful scenery and great planning.  Every detail seems to be considered.  The kitchen is so well equipped, I'm not sure I'll notice the difference when we go home.  We ate on the screened porch almost every night and enjoyed the view and the breezes and the bug-free atmosphere.  We used the pool every day too.  as busy as we were with diving and snorkeling, I particularly enjoyed the chance to take a book down to the lounges on the beach and read in the shade of the casuarinas. Thanks for a great vacation, Gail M. & family, Canada, August 2010


We had a lovely time here at Windward Cove. We all had a great time snorkeling and kayaking.  We also enjoyed the beach and pool.  You have a lovely home and a great view.  Thanks! and can't wait to come back! Sonya P. and Family/Friends, PA June 2010


Thank you for the use of your beautiful home.  The appointments, view and pool were excellent.  Staying at Windward Cove with the tranquil surroundings were a stark contrast to the traffic and congestion of Georgetown and Seven Mile Beach.  Each step of our trip planning process - from our initial contact with you, the detailed directions, the informative guide book and recommendations for tours were treated with care and intent to make our vacation very memorable. We can't thank you enough for your effort.        Dan B. & Family/Friends, OH, GA, VA, CT June 2010


The view of the ocean is spectacular.  The moon shining on the ocean is picture perfect.  The time to relax with our close friends and create memories is something to cherish.  Your home is everything we pictured and more.  The pool was a great addition with the added bathroom.  The well stocked kitchen helped make it easier to cook up our magnificent dinners!  The fellows got fed while the ladies shopped.  We had some great lazy days.  After dinner most nights we stayed around the table laughing about trips we have shared over the years and creating new memories by being here.                                Bill M. & Friends, Canada May 2010


Peaceful, relaxing and fun retreat!  We especially loved stargazing each night and catching sight of shooting stars most nights.  The food at nearby restaurants was delicious.  This is a lovely place to make family memories that will be shared for years to come.  Sally & Family, OK & TX May 2010


Thank you for allowing us to use your wonderful home.  The view is breathtaking.  We don't think we would every tire of waking up to the gorgeous ocean and palm trees.  We enjoyed the beach and pool. So peaceful and relaxing.  Perfect weather every day!  kevin K. & family, IL. April 2010


We had a wonderful week here. We arrived to a wild stormy night but the rest of the week was spectacular. Thanks! Can't wait to come back! Peter S. and friends, Maine


We had an amazing time in Grand Cayman. We loved watching the sun come up. The boys had a great time kayaking. Our favorite adventures were renting a boat and taking it to Stingray City and over to Rum Point. We also loved to snorkel Cemetary Beach, Cheeseburger reef and Smith's Cove. That was really neat with great coral.  The home is wonderful and we really enjoyed spending evenings on the back porch laughing about the days memories, listening to the ocean. Thanks! Brian Z. & family/friends, Springbreak 2010


Windward Cove has been everything we had hoped for in a vacation! It has been a very pleasurable experience. The home is so inviting and the view spectacular! The day hours were spent having fun in the sun, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming and kayaking. The evening hours were spent on the deck star gazing and listening to the waves splash on the beach! So very peaceful, a perfect ending to a perfect day. Thank you both so much for opening your home to us. Marty & Teresa, IA. February 2008


Thanks for the use of your of your beautiful home. We enjoyed leaving the below zero temps and soaking up the sun and the fun. We spent many hours on your beach relaxing and wading in the waters. The Cayman East Side is a relaxing side of the island and we will recommend it to many others. Thank You. Jeff & Judy IA .February 2008


What a perfect vacation! Thank you for sharing your special place with us---it truly is a slice of heaven! Our best to you. Russ & Beth.......February 2008


We thouroughly enjoyed our week at Windward Cove. Your home is very comfortable. The beach and view outstanding. Steve & Deb.....March 2008


Thank you for letting us use your beautiful and comfortable home, and for your gracious hospitality while we were here. The beachfront behind the house was the best we found on the island, and the kids rarely left it. We made ample use of the beach, kayak and new gas grill. The house is so well equipped, and we appreciated your replacing the washer so quickly when the old one stopped working. Alan, Missi & Family, DC ....March 2008


Our vacation here at Windward Cove in Grand Cayman couldn't have been better! The house and the beach were just what the Doctor ordered. Our children had so much fun exploring, and playing on the beach. It was so great, we ended up just staying here most of our trip. Thank you again for your warm hospitality. We hope to be back one year soon. Erika, Anthony & Family.....March 2008


Heaven on earth! Spectacular in every sense. Many thanks and may God continue to pour out his blessings on Windward Cove. Just wanted to say hello and thank you again for our fabulous week in your home. Your view and acreage, by the way, is likely the most beautiful and user friendly on the entire east side of the island.  We cannot imagine who would have possibly asked for a pool when the entire world is but a few steps from your back door! Thank you again for everything.
Kris and Family, KY......April 2008


Our week at Windward Cove was fabulous! The house was extremely 
comfortable and as you said we didn't use the air-conditioning at 
all, we just opened up all the sliding doors and let the breezes in. 
I took a great photo from the master bedroom of the view through the 
curtains blowing in the breeze. I think every house should have a 
disappearing wall of windows. I really can't think of anything that 
you could do to improve the house. And as far as our family is 
concerned a pool is not necessary we are more interested in the ocean 
(though I'm sure the kids would have used it.) And we also loved Grand Cayman. All in all it was a wonderful vacation and Grand Cayman is 
definitely a place we'd go visit again. Donna.............April 2008


We enjoyed our stay at the Villa immensely! The beach is very nice and
private and adjacent to the nicest open air swimming pool I have been
in.  I swam out to the wreck and saw the biggest porcupine fish I have
ever seen... its head was as big as a soccer ball!  The house has a very
enjoyable open layout and was quite comfortable without turning on the
air conditioning.  Everyone in our group had nothing but praise for the
villa and location. I certainly will recommend your villa to friends interested in visiting Grand Cayman and appreciate all the advice and information you provided us prior to our visit. Best Regards, Ken, CO....May 2008


Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Before we arrived, we wondered what we would do for 3 weeks. In the end it wasn't long enough. We loved the beach, the water, the snorkeling, the stingrays, the turtles, Georgetown, the people....the list goes on. And thank you for the time you spent compiling information packages, arranging car rentals, etc. Your efforts made our trip run so smoothly. Best wishes, Andrew, Ana, Maria, Stephen, Zoe, & Lukas, Canada...........June/July 2008 


We all had a little too much fun! We spent alot of time just hanging around the house. You have a really nice place. All of us travel the world, and Cayman will be remembered for a long time. The girls saw stingrays, starfish, and lots of other wildlife. thank you for sharing your home. From all of us in Missouri.............December 2008


Thank you for sharing your lovely home with our family. We had a wonderful time, and wish we had a week more to enjoy this comfy haven! We enjoyed the pool & the beach on a daily basis. Our son Trey loved the water and thanks for the toys and games! The view was the best you could find on the island! We did alot of relaxing & a tiny bit of sightseeing. The scuba diving was excellent, particularly the night dive at Ocean Frontiers (great recommendation). We even found a local fisherman to pick us up some fish for dinner. Thank you again for this little taste of paradise! We will be sure to return soon. Warmly, Washington DC.........January 2009


Our second year back and it was as beautiful as we remembered. Thanks again for everything. We really enjoyed our time at Windward Cove! Marty & Teresa. February 2009


We love it here! Your home is the perfect place to relax and unwind! Truly amazing! Our sincere thanks for a fabulous vacation. Russ and Beth. February 2009


What a place to get away from the snow and cold. Your place is the perfect place to have a blast with six adults and four active boys. We had a great time from sun up to sun down: diving, snorkeling, swimming, walking the beach, and finding shells. We appreciated all the details in your information book. We enjoyed Georgetown, Seven Mile Beach, the Lighthouse Restaurant, Portofino's, and Stingray City.The sealife was amazing.Thanks for sharing your home with us. May God continue to bless you and those you touch in the future. Roy and Diane. March 2009 


Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. The home is awesome, and the beach is incredible. We love the location. We hope to return again someday. Thanks again. Michael & Wendy. March 2009


The stay was absolute paradise. Nothing could be better truly! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at enjoy your lovely home. We went snorkeling, and were amazed by the beautiful coral and fish right off the beach! We also greatly appreciated the Windward Cove guide book you put together. It helped out so much--that was so thoughtful of you. Everything was amazing: the marine life, the view, the ocean and gentle breezes at night. A sincere thank you for letting us stay in your magnificent home. Illinois April 2009


Your home was an ideal place at a perfect location for bringing our family together from places such as Boston, Philly, and Carlsbad. Sitting on the porch and overlooking the beach and surf was very enjoyable. The kayak and swimming pool were considered great additions to your home. We hope that many people will be able to enjoy your place as much as we did. All the Best, The Sollevelds. April 2009


Thank you for sharing your home with us. We really enjoyed spending our honeymoon here, especially since this end of the island is so quiet. We spent alot more time by the pool than we thought we would, and it was a great asset to our vacation. We enjoyed nightly walks to the dock, and listening to the waves long after the sun went down from the living room. We spent our last day snorkeling with the stingrays at the sandbar, and it was amazing. Your home was very warm and inviting with all the thoughtfulness and personal touches you've put into it. We couldn't have picked a better place. Thanks again. God Bless! Sarah & Jason. April 2009  


for this wonderful house. The pool, the beach, and outside shower are just incredible We had a really good time on this island and the weather was great! Hope to come back soon!  MA, Montreal, France May 2009


Thank you so much for letting us stay at Windward Cove. It was amazing! We especially liked the ocean, pool, and the house! The ocean was the best, and open to snorkeling, swimming, and alot more! We found a bunch of crabs, and a hermit crab the size of a tennis ball! We were very lucky we got to stay here and every one of us wants to come back! Thank you so much!        John, Erin & Family May 2009


Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Everything was perfect. After our stay we had no regrets about not having a pool. It was interesting though when we saw the other villas we had considered--we were disappointed by the beach or the setting or how crammed it seemed (with other villas so close). As I explained to Jack on the phone, it often seems websites usually make properties look more appealing than what they may be in reality. Your website was great, but still Windward Cove is better than the website can ever portray.  We would really like to come back to Windward Cove, but have no idea when that opportunity will arise again, but surely we will convey the message to our friends and colleagues who want a fantastic holiday.   Suzanne M. and Family. Early December 2007.
