Within a 2 week vacation to Grand Cayman, my husband and I spent a long weekend on Little Cayman at Paradise Villas. Emma was very welcoming, handling bike rentals and answering our myriad questions. The location is gorgeous, airport is tiny and you have no noise to worry about. The villa is spacious, kitchen equipped for breakfast/lunch prep, everything spotless, housekeeping services beyond expectations.
We decided to do a resort course dive. Emma arranged all the details with Conch Club Divers. Matt was a patient and careful instructor. He was someone I instantly trusted and who appropriately guided me through my fears. We had 2 great dives and saw some incredible animals -- beautiful fish, corals, and a sea turtle!
Don't forget to indulge in all the wildlife above the sea: native endangered iguanas (please don't feed them!) and loads of birds you will not see elsewhere. The Cayman Trust building has good observation decks (and delicious ice cream for sale!) as do many other ponds. Hermit/soldiet crabs are right at your feet. If you have study shoes, meander out and peak in the tide pools; lots to see there as well.
My husband and I loved the quiet of Little Cayman -- and the incredible stars at night! Paradise Villas is a great place to enjoy Little Cayman and all it has to offer.
