Guest Reviews of 7br “tatenda,” a luxury cayman villas signature property
Wonderful vacation villa
Our extended family of 13 rented the Tatenda villa over the 2018 Christmas week. The house was amazing with plenty to do and room to move around. We used the kayaks, paddle board and pool daily. As described the beach is not great for swimming right from the shore, but if you paddle out a bit it is fine. It is also a great place for kite surfing. We had a number of special requests for our stay and the staff outdid themselves in meeting our needs! Highly recommend a stay at Tatenda.
A Perfect Vacation — Michael G.
We had an wonderful family vacation celebrating our daughter’s 1st birthday. Tatenda was a great location....away from the crowds but close to SMB (15-20 min drive). The house was well equipped and full of amenities but more importantly, immaculately clean. The pictures online doesn’t do the house justice. Anna who greeted us on our arrival was friendly and helpful. We definitely made use of their concierge service...Shamar was very attentive. We had a terrific meal from their private chef, Dylan. Honestly there were only positive things to say about our experience. The only thing that wasn’t working was the TV while we were there but we still had WiFi and they gave us a gift card for the inconvenience. But we really ended up just spending quality family time and the lack of TV was a non issue. We would definitely use them again....looking forward to coming back already!
Family vacation at Tatenda
The house was situated and laid out very well for our three families (17 people). Everything was comfortable and the thoughtful design enabled things to function nicely for 7 days. Of course, it helped to have Chef Remy prepare the evening meals! The isolation in the neighborhood was nice and transportation to activities worked very well.
Gorgeous Home & Fantastic Amenities! — D.
Our group (multiple families with multiple ages) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tatenda. It's a beautiful home with state-of-the-art amenities. Just gorgeous!! Management was super helpful with getting us settled in and answering any questions we had.
Fantastic home !!! — Laurie J.
this was for my retirement party. I had 11 guests and we had a fabulous time. The home was everything I could have asked for!!
Great Thanksgiving Week at Tatenda — Michael O.
Our family (8 adults and 8 children) spent a wonderful Thanksgiving week at Tatenda. The house was even more amazing than we had envisioned. It was very spacious and accommodated our family extremely well. The location of the house worked well for us. It was close to the airport, grocery stores, the Georgetown Yacht Club and Seven Mile Beach, but far enough away from all of the cruise ship traffic to really enjoy the outside kitchen, pool and beach as if we had the beach to ourselves. We ate most of our meals at the house and found that the number of pots and pans available and the size of the kitchen were somewhat limited for a group our size. Shamar, our concierge, and John, the property manager, were both very accessible and prompt to respond to any requests we had. For instance, when we asked Shamar if there was a crock pot at the house, he said there was not, but he brought one to the house for us to use that he had given his father. Chef Vincent prepared a wonderful meal for us on Thanksgiving evening. The grandkids spent a lot of time playing in the pool and on the beach. There was quite a bit of sea weed in the water by the house that made playing in the ocean not very appealing, but we went to Smith Cove which is only a couple of miles from Tatenda and found it to be a lot of fun for snorkeling and jumping off the cliffs. All in all, we would highly recommend Tatenda. It was a great week.
Tatenda — Diana R.
We really enjoyed our stay at Tatenda. The house is beautiful and the property management was great! The house is so spacious and the kids loved the third floor.
Great Week at Tatenda — Tim C.
Our family of 10 just returned from a great week at Villa Tatenda. The home was very, very nice, and included all the amenities needed to make our stay memorable. The bedrooms were spacious and included comfortable beds and very nice bathrooms. The kitchen was large and very functional, and the bar included an ice maker that really made our happy hours special with the ability to make frozen drinks. The best part of the villa is the back yard and location -- right on the beach, with a beautiful pool, plenty of cushioned seating for a large group, and spectacular views. The sea kayaks were a big hit, as was the paddle board that is provided. Shamar did a super job, helping us to arrange a private charter, lunch and dinner options, an on-site chef, pre-ordered and delivered groceries and drinks, and an outstanding day at Royal Palms Beach Resort on 7 mile beach.
Manager Response: Hi Tim, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Tatenda. It is a truly a luxury estate and the owners take great pride in making it feel like your home away from home. We agree that the outdoor space is spectacular - the swaying shade palms, the soft grass, the pool and lounge areas are all so welcoming and relaxing. The shallow, calm waters are perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding so it's great you were able to enjoy that during your stay as well. Shamar is wonderful, as always, and we are thrilled he went above and beyond to plan all of the excursions and services that made your stay so wonderful. Please come back and see us again very soon! Best Regards, Molly Thomas, Founder - Luxury Cayman Villas.
Amazing house — Stephen R.
The house was well located from Georgetown but right on a beach e. Every room had a water view. Easily gave all 14 of us privacy and wonderful social space. House was wonderfully appointed and decorated. We wanted for nothing as many extras were included. The management catered to every wim of ours they were as amazing as the house. Nothing ss to hard for them
