Beach Notes

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The homes in Northside offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches in Northside can have plenty of white sand, but can also be pebbly or “ironshore” with natural rock formations. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing trade winds from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes on Northside don’t even need a screened porch.

In northside we have a primary school, a health clinic with ambulance service, a post office, and a small grocery store for the essentials. Closer to Old Man Bay is Over the Edge restaurant, a great casual restaurant with good food and reasonable prices.

From the northside, it's an easy 10 minute drive to Rum Point, as well as 10-15 minute drive to The Lighthouse restaurant, Tukka restaurant in east end, and the 2 east end resorts—Morritts and The Reef. Both resorts offer bars, restaurants, pools, watersports, a grocery store, and local lunch spots.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high water mark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally. Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation. We try our best to work around mother nature.

It was great to have a few paper products already there, plus extra pillows, beach towels, light switches were labeled and phone numbers for anything we needed. The home is very comfortable and nicely decorated with plenty of space, rooms and bathrooms for everyone.

Our stay was 12/28/16 - 1/4/17. Our party of 8, 2 families of 4, had a wonderful time at this home. Description of property is very accurate. Very private location. You have to have a car to stay here. The house was very clean, and was perfect for us. We loved snorkeling from their pier, and even if the water seemed a bit rough (not every day), the current conditions were not bad for swimming. Very pretty coral! The beach is not your clean white sand at a resort, but was very enjoyable. The only issue I had with the house (reason for 4 stars) is that I slept in the master suite and at night I love the windows open to listen to the ocean and you cannot open the sliders at all, they are completely caulked on the outside and the room has no windows so we had to have A/C on. I think overall weather is hit or miss, 5 of our 7 days were windy and 2 were not. The 2 that weren\'t were buggy and the other 5 weren\'t. But you are in a tropical location so bugs are to be expected. We enjoyed the deck everyday and wonderful stargazing at night. I have to say, overall the house was very nice and I would definitely recommend staying there.
Manager Response:

Thank you for your review. We will look into the window situation and rectify that for future guests. Thank you! -Scott

We had an amazing stay at Castaway Cove. It is the location to be when visiting Grand Cayman if you don\'t want to be by the tourists and busy 7 mile beach. The weather was amazing and the beach was great. My kids loved snorkeling off the pier. The house was completely stocked and the serenity and peace of the totally private beach house was amazing. 5 of 5 starsValue 5 of 5 starsComfort 5 of 5 starsLocation 5 of 5 starsCleanliness 5 of 5 starsCheck-in 5 of 5 starsService Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?

“Great Villa”

We loved Castaway Cove. It is very clean. The kitchen is totally equipped with everything you need. Other renters left things so we did as well. The beach towels and cooler was great. We used them every day. The grill wasn\'t the best but served our purpose for the one time we grilled. It is very quiet so sleeping was no problem. One morning there was a bulldozer clearing the lot next door. So there was that noise. The bedroom were very comfortable. The showers were great. 4 of 5 starsValue 5 of 5 starsComfort 4 of 5 starsLocation 5 of 5 starsCleanliness 5 of 5 starsCheck-in 5 of 5 starsService Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?

This home was almost perfect for our family. I say \"almost\" because our 17 year-old grandson had to sleep on the sofa. And with 6 adult early-risers, his beauty sleep was interrupted. (the 2 teen-aged granddaughters got the twin beds upstairs) Other than that, the home was exceptionally wonderful. We brought all items recommended (detergent, TP, etc.,) but the home was well-stocked already. I really can\'t say enough about the home. Our daughter asked us all one evening what we liked best about the house, and we all said \"everything!\" Beautifully decorated. Great, well-equipped kitchen. Really appreciated the beach towels provided. And the deck. The beach was not perfect (lots of seaweed washed up on shore, and there was also some debris) but the snorkeling was very nice, and we enjoyed the cabana. The north side is windy, but after spending some time on 7 Mile Beach, we appreciated the breeze. And we loved the tranquility. 4 of 5 starsValue 4 of 5 starsComfort 4 of 5 starsLocation 4 of 5 starsCleanliness 5 of 5 starsCheck-in 5 of 5 starsService Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend?
