We would like to thank Paul and Fay Anne for their generous hospitality during our stay.
We loved the house - great location, comfortable and stylish design inside (like Orla Kiely style arm chairs and curtains) with a great view and a secluded beach. Chick chick was so sweet - almost like a dog. Paul and Fay Anne were amazing hosts and we all were amazed. we had an excitement of sea turtle nest nearby and the department of environment people were so nice to our children in explaining how they research and track nests to protect them. The snorkelling in front of the house was very good and Ocean Frontier is also close and they were excellent. East end is definitely our cup of tea with more character of Cayman - not too touristy and the restaurant variety is very interesting.
Our huge thanks again to Paul and Fay Anne for making our holiday so memorable.
Eri and family
We have recently returned from a family vacation at Sand with our three young children. Probably the best holiday I’ve ever had – and the accommodation made the difference.
Not only is the apartment finished to a high standard rivalling most 5-star hotels (and fully equipped, so you can make yourself at home), but the setting is spectacular – a private beach, pool and coral reef away from the crowds, where you can enjoy a BBQ and a cold beer and watch the sun set to the gentle sound of the breaking waves. Boom!
Paul and Fayanne were brilliant hosts and went out of their way to accommodate any requests. We were really impressed.
My 4 year old daughter is already asking me when we are going back to the Cayman Islands!
I can’t recommend it enough.
My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our stay in Sand at Crescent Beach. As gorgeous as the photos are, the view and apartment itself are still much better. My husband and I have stayed in plenty of places that were busier, but having the seclusion and privacy of Crescent Beach made it all the more special.
The apartment was very comfortable and had a well stocked kitchen. And it was wonderful to do our laundry before we went home. Doing laundry was much more fun when I got to lay out by the pool and ocean.
The surroundings are also beautiful, from the private beach to the gorgeous flowers and, of course, the friendly visiting rooster, Chick Chick. We can't wait to go back.
My wife and I have traveled all over, but this is the only place we have been that we really didn't want to leave. It was so amazing we really want to move there! The property itself is wonderful and has everything you need. Make sure to take any special coffee you may like and there is a great coffee maker to brew up a nice cup. The kitchen got quite a workout when we were there and had everything we needed. The beach and pool are perfect. The snorkeling is really amazing. I saw snapper, grouper, tarpon, rays, lobster, and all sorts of other fish around the many coral heads in the small bay. We are planning a trip back next year, but my only fear is we'll be feeding the bug that is trying to get us to move there!
Driving on the left side of the road was a fun adventure too! Oh, Chick chick LOVES crackers when he isn't wandering the beach for chicks :)

What a beautiful family vacation for family of 6. Paul and Fay Anne thought of everything to make our stay just tremendous! They took care of all our needs. Welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a delicious rum cake. Told us where to go and Paul even made sure we found the local grocery store. They could not have been any more accommodating. The home is situated on a private beach where you can fish, snorkel. kayak, or lounge on a relaxing hammock listening to the beautiful ocean. We all would highly recommend this place to anyone. Again....thank you very much for an unforgettable vacation!!!!
Stayed at Crescent Beach SAND June 25-July 2, 2016 and already miss it. Paul and Fay Anne greeted us at Fosters in Bodden Town and treated us like we were old friends. Super awesome people!!! They will help you with whatever you need, before your trip if you have questions, and during your stay for anything you need. The house is GORGEOUS. Situated on the south side of the island right on the beach, you really don't need to leave. We snorkeled right outside the back door and saw so many fish and conchs around the coral. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The only thing you need to buy at the store is food. Paper products and trash bags are already there. They supply shampoo and awesome soap from "Bubbles," a bath soap company on the island nearby. They smell awesome, so much so that my entire family of boys used them. The pool is fantastic after a long day at the beach. There are two bikes for anyone to ride and I think our oldest son clocked about 100 miles on the East End. The house is decorated so well with granite counters, beach decor, stainless steel appliances and just about anything you need should you choose to cook or grill or make frozen Caribbean concoctions. Outside is a fire pit for a campfire with the ocean sound as your background. The back patio has several seats for anyone to sit and listen to the waves and visit. We stayed when nobody had the upper floor so we had access to the upper floor should we need to play the gaming console there, as well as the last day should we stay beyond cleaning time for SAND. The coolest thing for us at the house was Chick Chick, the white rooster who comes to visit. You'll see chickens and roosters during your stay if you drive the island and Chick Chick comes to the house and will eat Cheerios out of your hand! SAND is the best place to stay!! Away from the hustle of the cruise ships with everything you could ever want or need!! Paul and Fay Anne are wonderful people with an awesome place!!!
