Cayman Airways – One of the Eight Best Airlines for 2015?

I am a fan of our national carrier, Cayman Airways – who wouldn’t love an airline that gives out free rum punch and allows not just one but TWO FREE checked bags (or truck tires, as the case may be – story later) – but, really, one of the 8 GREAT AIRLINES for 2015?!!  Really?!!! […]

“BEST OF GRAND CAYMAN” LIST – FROM OUR GUESTS

One of the best things about renting out our homes (No Big Ting and Coral Loft) is hearing from our guests about what they liked (and even what they didn’t – it makes us be better hosts). Last week, one of the extended families who visited took the time to give us a “Best Of” List and I […]

PASSENGER PICKS IS A PASSENGER PICK!

  Visitors to the Cayman Islands flying on Delta Airlines have an advantage over those flying on other airlines – flight attendant Val Kegel!  And what’s so cool about Val?  I was at our home, No Big Ting, checking to make sure everything was in order for our newest guests and I picked up a […]

WHO YOU FA?!

The Cayman Islands Tourism department emails flood my inbox – usually notifying me of some new regulation for keeping my vacation rental homes (No Big Ting and Coral Loft) up to their very strict codes (do check that your rental is licensed so that you aren’t disappointed); but today I got a lovely surprise – the launching […]

WHO IS DREADY?

 For those of you who are residents of the Cayman Islands or have been to our homes (No Big Ting and Coral Loft), there is no need to introduce Dready – he is everywhere on the islands. But who is the artist?  Why does Shane draw the way he does?  What inspires him? Where can you […]

THE BEST MUDSLIDES IN GRAND CAYMAN

My favourite quip about the “proper” mudslide is from the folks at the Wreck Bar at Rum Point Beach (which is, as folklore has it, where the mudslide was first invented) in answer to a question that many tourists reportedly have asked (how much is a virgin mudslide?): ice is free!  So what is a […]

BREAD AND CHOCOLATE – DOES THAT SOUND VEGAN?

I’m a meat eater – there, I’ve said it.  I naturally tend to stay away, then, from restaurants that advertise themselves as vegan or vegetarian and, to its credit, this place seems to understand that.  The tag line for Bread & Chocolate is: modern, responsible, delicious.  Have they got it right!  I first heard about this […]

MIND’S EYE – TWO SIDES TO THE STORY

We don’t have many cultural sites in the Cayman Islands.  The country was originally settled (so the common folklore goes) in 1658 by soldiers from Cromwell’s army and later by pirates, refugees from the Spanish Inquisition and shipwrecked sailors; but it didn’t have many inhabitants until the mid-1970s (numbering less than 1,000 in 1800 and about 5,000 […]

IGUANAS AND CRABS AND CROCS – OH MY!

The other day I was driving back from East End with a friend who was staying at one of our Cayman Kai homes, No Big Ting.  Just a half mile before we got to the turn off that would put us onto North Side Road (which turns into Rum Point Drive – don’t get me started […]
