Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is the water safe to drink on Grand Cayman?

The water is safe to drink; it is supplied by the Cayman Desalination Plant. Water is scarce on the island; we do ask you to be economical in your use of water for showering, etc.

Is Grand Cayman a safe place to visit?

Grand Cayman is a very low crime island, but still you should always lock your door when you are not home or at night.  Even with the low crime rate, it is always a good idea to keep you valuables out of sight.  Being a British protectorate, guns are not allowed in the Cayman Islands.

Where can I buy groceries on Grand Cayman?

Just a block away is the new Foster’s Food Fair supermarket, open from 7 AM to 11 PM Monday through Saturday. Other grocery stores are open from 7 AM to 10 PM Monday through Saturday.

Liquor stores are open until
6 PM Monday through Saturday with the exception of Joe-Ena's, located two blocks from the guest homes, which remains open until 10 PM.

The islanders believe Sunday is a day for church and rest so the island is nearly closed down on Sundays - but the beaches are always open!

What about maid service while I'm staying at the guest homes?

Maid service is provided as part of the standard rate for stays longer than 7 days. The service consists of a light clean up, clean sheets and clean towels. Daily maid service is available for an extra charge (please make arrangements in advance).

Where are the guest homes located?

The homes are located at #20, #27 and #29 Elizabeth Street in West Bay, just off Willie Farrington Drive. West Bay is located on the north end of Seven Mile Beach. For additonal location information see: Island Homes Location
