Fodor's Review

Comfortable rooms and fine cuisine make this hideaway nestled between sea grape and casuarina pines on a sweep of sand one of Little Cayman's best properties. There are 11 bungalow-style rooms, some air-conditioned, others swept by crosswinds through louvers. Walls duplicate the soft colors of a Caribbean dawn; floors and furnishings are immaculate. In true Caribbean getaway tradition, TV is banished to the main cottage (where Wi-Fi is available). You'll likely become fast friends with effervescent owner Gladys Howard, whose down-home welcome belies her upscale meals (ask to hear anecdotes of her studies with Julia Child, James Beard, and Jacques Pépin). She still watches the kitchen staff like a hawk while finding time to host weekly champagne parties on the veranda of her adjacent home and play dominoes after dinner. Somehow Gladys always wins, slamming tiles down with classic Caribbean vigor. Weekly stays (preferred) represent huge savings, especially the dive packages, which include an open bar; guests who are not on dive packages just get wine with dinner.
