Family fun at the shore
Works Wonders is an aptly named beach front cottage that does just that to our soul every time that we stay. The home was built by Bob Soto (the father of modern scuba diving in the Caribbean) and was the family home for years. It was built to last and was a survivor of Ivan in 2004 when many were not left standing. Although restored to it’s previous glory over the years, we have spent the first potion of our ownership adding a few amenities and modern touches during our stays. We hope that you enjoy your visit and feel free to contact us with feedback.
We refer to the home as a “cottage” because it has that seriously Caribbean island vibe. The secluded location with what feels like a totally private beach (although all beaches on Cayman are considered public), but at almost 3000 square feet, it comfortably sleeps 10 with very quiet and private quarters. The exposed wooden beam construction along with the traditional Caribbean color scheme really sets the tone for a relaxed week away from your normal routine. You may end up never leaving the peaceful and tranquil view from the home of the sound....
But, when you choose to venture out, you will not have to go very far to enjoy all the Grand Cayman has to offer. The central location of Works Wonders provides ready access to Rum Point, where the mudslides are a must; to Georgetown and Camana Bay districts, where you will find wonderful experiences for both shopping and dining (Cayman is know as the culinary capital of the Caribbean); and of course scuba and snorkeling that rivals the best in the world. And speaking of the best, 7 Mile Beach, annually voted one of the top 3 beaches in the world is just a 20 minute drive way.
The list goes on and on. From salt caves to the blue iguana preserve to swimming with the turtles at Spotts Beach, Cayman has something for everyone. But then again, with some of the best bone fishing in the world just outside your back door in Frank’s Sound, and the newly constructed pool right on the beach, Works Wonders just may keep you occupied right there at home.

4/5 Good

Gorgeous Beach House with a nice and deck..
The house and grounds were very clean and had lots of amenities. The area is quiet and peaceful, beautiful stars at night. We had no wifi during our stay, however the manager was very helpful and did her best to have it restored.

5/5 Excellent

Great getaway out of the hustle of the tourist area
The house was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We fit an extended family of 8 comfortably. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast on the back patio and having a fire on the beach at night. The water wasn't ideal for swimming but there were kayaks and paddle boards supplied that were a blast. We would totally recommend it to others.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Amazing..everything you could want in a vacation home!!!
Wow...we loved this place and the owners! Communication from the initial booking all the way through our arrival was timely and informative. We were given friendly suggestions on things to do and places to eat along with plenty of information about the house. The owner even reached out to me personally by phone when an earthquake happened nearby two days before our arrival to let me know everything was okay. Now onto the house... it was perfect for my family of 7. Plenty of space, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms, comfortable beds and furniture, plenty of hot water, a/c when we needed it and an absolutely amazing location. It's very private, which we liked. You wake up to that beautiful sand and water view each morning. Start your day with coffee and a book in your chair looking at the water. It was great having the kayaks and paddle boards right there to use each day. We travel a lot and stay in houses all over the country. Overall this was one of the best places we've stayed. Thanks for everything! If we come back, we will stay here again.
