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 is 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, Tiki Beach near the Kimpton, and 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.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Crown owns up to the high water mark.

The shoreline quality behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website due to shifting tides and weather patterns. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally.

Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency over the years during the summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation.

We try our best to work around Mother Nature.

Thank you for an incredible family holiday. Lots of great indoor & outdoor space for our group to enjoy family gatherings or privacy to enjoy a good book! We visited many of the beautiful sites of the island and always look forward to returning to Villa Mora. Thank you to the fantastic people in the Caymans as well as the Grand Cayman Villas team for making this a memorable trip.

Perfect Villa


         
Review by Louis on 02/14/2023

This was the PERFECT Villa for our group. We had 3 separate families plus another couple, and while we all felt together the whole time, there was also great privacy. The pools were awesome, the house was open and spacious, and the beach itself was great. The ocean outside of the beach wasn\'t ideal for swimming for the kids, but we did snorkel and take kayaks out daily. This was the perfect set up for adults who wanted to have a luxurious trip, and for kids who needed entertainment throughout the day. Also, the two entertainment centers came in handy when the kids would get tired of the sun! The house manager was also very helpful for all of our needs. Strongly recommend this Villa.

Celebration!

This property is all that and more, the bedrooms were amazing, and the casitas were perfect for overflow. We had two chefs for two dinners during the week, the chefs were impressed with the kitchen to prepare dinner. The pool and hot tub were a perfect plus! the beach being right in our back yard made it for great Sunrises, and evening sunsets! We did have a few concerns nothing major, but one call to property managers and they were quick to help us. We will certainly consider this home again! Amazing!

Must Rent!

I rented this house for my husbands 50th with family. There was 14 of us. We had an amazing time! The house is gorgeous and the pictures don’t do it justice. This house is a must rent. It’s very private and a short ten minute ride to the beaches and great restaurants. Our property manager was excellent. Constant contact

Villa Mora is amazing, you won't be disappointed. There's plenty of space, we had 11 adults and 6 children. Just look at the pictures, it's pretty much all you need to know-- it is as described. This review is meant to be more informative to help you decide. Location: south side is really a nice spot. a bit out of the way of Georgetown and 7MB but still close enough to get to any part of the island easily. Close to the airport. There is a grocery store and a couple of good restaurants 1.5 miles east, and a good snorkel spot 1.5 miles west (Smith's Barcadere). Some of us rented a car, I just kept a couple of taxi numbers handy… they answer text or phone and show up pretty quick when you ring. Georgetown is about 3.5-4 miles away, and 7MB just above that. Do not want to go to Georgetown when the cruise ships come in. (Though the flip side is a lot of the stores close when there are no cruise ships, but the restaurants were still open and not crowded.) If you take a cab or drive up to 7MB we like Governor’s Beach with public parking and never too crowded and just below that is the Westin where you can parasail or jet ski. Regarding the villa beach, we were very worried about sargassum. I can’t speak to other months but at the end of June it was a non-issue for us. The entire east side of the island had lots of sargassum. The beach at Villa Mora is fine, it’s not great for snorkeling as mentioned on the website. It’s shallow out to about ½ mile off shore where the reef is. Once you get past that it drops down to about 12-15 feet and this would be good snorkeling. We did rent a couple kayaks and paddleboards for the week and that was a fun way to spend time on the water and get out to the reef. Rush hour is a big deal. You do not want to go north towards Georgetown/7MB from about 7-9am, or east towards the grocery store from about 4-6pm. Bumper to bumper traffic. Other times, minimal traffic.

Thanks Matt for the thorough review! Please come back soon!

Eleven of us flew in from Texas to visit family in Grand Cayman whom we had not seen since Covid began. This was a trip that had been postponed since September, 2020!! We had a ball together! We will do it again soon!

Worth the Wait


         
Review by George on 06/14/2022

We were a party of 9 who pursued this property for 3 years because of Covid. It was well worth the wait. The Villa setting is stunning, and the accommodations superb. On arrival, the spa was not working, but the property manager arranged for a quick fix - even though it was a local holiday. Have no hesitation about renting this one!

Beautiful house on amazing reef


         
Review by JA on 02/21/2022

We had a large family gathering at Villa Mora and the property worked very well for us. The outside space is gorgeous with a large pool, hot tub, plenty of seating and a lovely beach. The ocean outside the property has a lot of rocks, seagrass and coral so hard to walk out but we kayaked out closer to the reef and jumped in and saw amazing wildlife - turtle, ray, many fish and even a nurse shark. The water was warm and fairly shallow but there was quite a strong current so beware. Inside the property, there are many bedrooms and spaces for adults and kids, so that worked nicely. All in all, a great property on a really interesting part of the island.
Manager Response:

Thank you for your review. The water is very shallow for the first 75' out into the water. Glad you enjoyed the snorkeling.

We were thrilled with Villa Mora for our party of 16 in 4 families. The layout of house meant that we could group children and families so everyone was happy. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, glasses and pots and pans. We asked to borrow a Nespresso machine and that was acquired for our time there. The beach and pool were huge hits! We would love to return if we could ever get all the families assembled again.

Celebrating our parents 50th wedding anniversary, 4 children and their families had a wonderful time of sand, sun and beauty. Slept 16 people comfortably. Close to 7 Mile Beach and grocery stores. Villa Mora is in an ideal spot. Great place for large groups.

I had my husbands 40th at Villa Mora; 6 couples. We all had an amazing time together and apart. There was enough room in the property for people to all come together and have some alone time. Penni was also an amazing property manager that made herself available for everything. #Joe40th

Review by Ann and Walt on 10/24/2018

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!
