1. Re: Are there any rentals by owners, other than VRBO?

I'm a AAA member and we regularly use the AAA villa rental service: http://www.villa-info.net/ Just choose your location and you will find a lot of listings (you don't have to be a member to do a search).

Once I find a property I like, I do a search on Trip Advisor to see if there are any reviews of it. I also do a google search by the property name to see what other reviews might be out there. Then I call AAA to book the property.

Unfortunately my last experience with AAA was not so helpful, so I ended up booking a villa that I found on the AAA site, directly through the property owner.

I also browsed this site a bit: http://www.grandcaymanvillas.net/index.html It's a rental service but it looks like they have some good reviews.

If you scroll down on the left, you will find "Vacation Rentals" and those are the ones on flipkey.

A majority are listed through their management companies. Look for the ones that say "Contact Owner".

cyberrentals.com (owned by Homeaway but sometimes the listings are different);

vacationrentals411.com

I have done a *lot* of looking on all of these sites, as well as looking for additional sources (I was surprised that I couldn't find a local real estate company that does vacation rentals). As far as I have found, VRBO and Homeaway pretty much cover all the options - that is, I haven't found any listings for properties elsewhere that weren't already listed on VRBO and/or Homeaway - at least for 2 BR, 2 BA places.
