Castle Guesthouse

East End
6 Guests
2 Bedrooms
2 Bathrooms

Castle Guesthouse is directly oceanfront on an elevated cliff.  While it shares a two-acre gated lot and private beach with the larger Cayman Castle, it is quite private, tucked over 70 feet (more than the combined setbacks between most oceanfront neighbors) away from the Castle. 

The Guesthouse boasts its own driveway, utilities, garage, satellite dish, grill, and freshwater pool.  The Guesthouse's pool faces east, while the main Castle pool faces due south ensuring privacy among guests. 

Castle Guesthouse’s Notable Features

  • King suite with gorgeous ocean views, small flat screen TV, and en-suite bath with a large walk-in shower.
  • Queen suite with lovely views, overflow twin bunk beds, and en-suite bath with walk-in shower and dual vanities.
  • Comfortable oceanfront living area with sectional couch, flat-screen satellite TV and Apple TV.
  • Modern kitchen with stainless appliances, dishware, cookware, and cutlery. 
  • The Guesthouse offers the same quality construction and luxury finishes as The Castle including granite counters, glass-block showers, and bright new furniture.
  • The Guesthouse offers a covered oceanfront veranda with sectional sofa and Adirondack chairs.
  • A zoysia grass lawn also provides room for sunbathing on chaise loungers. 
  • The white sandy beach with 3 thatched cabanas and 4 kayaks is available to guests just off the driveway.
  • The pool is cliff-edged, so families with children should probably look elsewhere for accommodation. 
  • Charcoal grill (access to Castle propane grill area if no guests at Castle)
  • Covered front porch with Adirondack chairs
  • Private driveway with plenty of off-street parking. 

Castle Guesthouse is offered occasionally as a separate 2 bedroom rental, or within 60 days of booking if the main Castle is booked alone.

*Note: Additional Silver Thatch tandem kayaks available for discounted rental.  Signed waiver and 5-day minimum required with 6th and 7th day free: US$39 per day per kayak ($195 per week/each). Paddles included.

Beach Notes

Cayman Castle & Guesthouse sits on a 2 acre gated estate in Gun Bay in East End. Adjacent to 6 acres of government land that includes the Wreck of the 10 Sails park and the East End Constable's residence & office, guests are sure to have ample privacy during their stay.

The Castle Guesthouse is cliff-edged with no direct beach access, however, guests have access to the Castle beach just off the villa's driveway. We have a 250 foot stretch of beach...plenty to go around!  The beach is shared by guests staying at the Castle & Guesthouse only.  We have three thatched palapas, 4 kayaks and 9 lounge chaises on this beautiful white sandy beach.  

The water here is more for snorkeling than swimming.  There is a great snorkeling site, 200 yards straight out from the castle, marked with a white PVC pole.  You may tie up the kayaks to that pole while snorkling.  Since this is a marine environment we recommend guests wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection.  If you want barefoot swimming, we sugegst visiting two resorts mentioned below.

2-3 lunch places are within walking distance and Tukka Restaurant is only a mile north. Two miles further north are the 2 large resorts (The Reef and Morritts) offering manicured beaches, pools, restaurants, bars and watersports. These resorts are great places to entertain older kids and for anyone to spend the day.

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.

The 10% Guest Service Fee includes your Silver Thatch Membership. 

The service fee is capped at seven days for extended stays.

We absolutely loved staying at the Castle Guesthouse. My husband and I came for a quick getaway and this location provided everything we were looking for. The property is in excellent condition, very well kept and clean and very well appointed. The linens are of superb quality and everything in the house seemed very well thought through. We loved having our privacy, loved the beautiful patio and the pool. It was also great having use of a double kayak that came as part of the property rental. This is our third time using Grand Cayman Villas for our stay in Grand Cayman and we highly recommend them for anyone looking for a villa rental.

What a beautiful property with awesome views. The snorkel shop and Taco Cantina were both very close and very nice. The only downside part of the house is that is showing its age a bit. Give a handyman a week or so and it would be back to pristine shape. Thanks for a wonderful stay at the house. Brian and Kathie.

Our friends are so jealous!

I\'m very much a believer in reviews and i always read a LOT of them before pulling the trigger on a rental. I know you have to discount the top and bottom ones and find the truth somewhere in the middle so I\'m happy to post this review. The first thing we noticed when walking in the door was that the photos did not do the property justice. Every day I took photos - of the same view! Just because it was so beautiful. We sat on the villas private beach all day and never saw another person except for an occasional fisherman which we would direct toward the area where we had seen fish jumping. It is a shared beach with the main house but plenty of space for others. We posted FB photos and everyone was asking where we were and why they weren\'t invited! I was surprised about the condition of the house. I know its not brand new but looks it and was super clean. The landscaping is very nice as well with flowering trees. The bedding (from linens to mattress to pillows) were very comfy, quality, and plentiful. Outdoor furniture comfy as well. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Knives were even very sharp which is unusual sometimes for a rental. We can\'t really recommend anywhere to go nearby because we rarely left the villa. We wanted down time and privacy and thats what we got! We did have Nadine Dumas come to the house to give us spray tans and also Perfectly Pampered came to the villa for mani/pedi and massage. Lindsey Correia can come for private yoga as well. Google them, all recommended! We had 2 questions along the way which were answered immediately. The reservation process was super easy too. We highly recommend anyone staying.
