Welcome to On The Rocks! This grand oceanfront gated estate with private pool is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport in a planned residential community called Beach Bay. 

The dozen or so larger homes along this rugged coastline share the key amenity of the neighborhood: a wonderful sandy beach cove with protected swimming and excellent snorkeling (a 5-minute walk).

While each villa offers panoramic elevated views and privacy, each has access to the sandy white beach. Our guests report seeing lobster, octopus and teeming juvenile fish on the coral heads.

The main 6 bedroom villa features a wrap-around porch that offers a full-day respite from the Caribbean sun plus shaded areas for enjoying a good read, morning yoga sessions, breakfast, or sunset viewings. With heavy landscaping on both sides of the property, On The Rocks provides guests privacy and quiet during their stay.

The large freshwater pool has a wide sundeck with lounge chaises as well as a cabana for outdoor dining. A zoysia grass lawn feels cool on bare feet and the estate has many mature palm trees to offer additional shade.

Outdoor dining tables include a 6-top near the house and a 4-top in the pool cabana. There are 6 lounge chaises around the pool deck and 2 chaises on the master suite balcony. An outdoor sectional sofa is shaded by the covered veranda.

Architecturally, the design and flow of the house is low-country plantation-style with transom windows, the wrap-around porch, window shutters, and a central living room opening to the pool area. There is an enormous parking area and access to the garage.

Beach Notes

On The Rocks estate is on an elevated rocky bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  In the evening it is not unusual to see the cruise ships passing by on their way back to Jamaica or the USA. We have great panoramic views, however you would not enter the beach from the rear of the house. 

This executive residential development of "Beach Bay" has about 12 homes like On The Rocks that all share a communal sandy beach cove with protected snorkeling just 400 yards east of the villa (3 minute walk). Parking is offered if you prefer to drive.  The owner has 6 beach chairs for you to use and if you need more, please ask the manager.

The beach offers a sandy entry into the water and multiple palm trees provide shade--no need to take an umbrella!  As this is still a marine environment, we recommend either swim fins or stretchy water shoes to protect the feet from sharp shell shards, broken urchin spines, etc.  The water is clear and the bottom is sandy, but we still err on the side of caution.

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.

I think that November 2019 was our 5th year in a row at On the Rocks says it all!

A great house

We rented this house with friends and had a magnificent time. When you walk in it is like being in paradise the house is immaculate and the pool overlooking the ocean absolutely breathtaking anytime of the day. The amenities were perfect and I like that we were not in the main stream noise and traffic. I hope we Visit again soon. This is a hard place to leave from to go home.

Although our stay was only 6 nights, the time was special to celebrate family and just get together for a while. Recharge and reenergize. On the Rocks was a beautiful home, everything looked new inside! The pool deck was a great gathering pot. The views were sensational. We recommend this property and will return another time.

Family vacation and birthday celebration

Our stay at on the rocks was a combination of birthday celebration for my wife and a family vacation for our four adult children spouses and grandchildren. The stay at this villa was absolutely fantastic. We had outstanding weather the entire time, the pool was very well use throughout the week and it was wonderful to Visit the variety of wonderful beaches on the island. We mixed in some golf, a lot of sightseeing, and wonderful dining at a variety of small and large restaurants. We would highly recommend this place to any and all of my friends thank you very much for the gracious on-site assistance from Penni she was fantastic.

Wonderful Time

On The Rocks is Special


         
Review by Anonymous on 02/25/2019

We had a wonderful time during my stay with Grand Cayman Villas at ON THE ROCKS for 11 nights. The house was spacious, comfortable, and beautiful situated. It was stocked with everything we needed inside and out, to enjoy our time there. Penni Bell, who was our on island manager, was great to work with. She was very helpful to my family. W This house is really private. The small swimming beach down the road was really useful, and safe for kids because of the breakwater. It still seems to be under some ongoing construction, though. Hopefully that will conclude at some future date, because I would use the house and the managers again. Please thank everyone on my behalf

Nice Stay

First off, booking through this property management group was wonderful. They were very accommodating, worked with us when we had a few members of our group drop out, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable traveling with small children. They delivered all of the pack n plays and high chairs without charge and everything was there upon our arrival. The house itself was beautiful with a very relaxing backyard and lovely pool. Bedroom setup was perfect for our group (4 couples each traveling with one small child). The location of the house was centrally located and equidistant from both Seven Mile Beach and Rum Point. Penni was very quick to respond when we had an issue with the hot water and got it fixed ASAP. The only drawback was the beach within walking distance from the house wasn’t exactly wonderful as described. If you’re looking for a beach to walk to daily (as we were hoping to with all of the kids) then this house might not be for you, but if you’re okay with a bit of a drive, then this house is great! All said and done I would definitely book with this group again, they were amazing!

Christmas in Cayman


         
Review by S.P. on 01/20/2019

We spent a wonderful Holiday at On the Rocks with our extended family of 8 adults and 5 children. The home is very large and there was plenty of room for everyone. Great quiet time and great family time. The beach is a walk down the street which was not an issue for us. We are used to staying on hillside homes on St John and St Thomas. This was a special treat being oceanfront. The locals are wonderful and helpful. The rental company was great. We did use the fitness center twice and were very happy with the assortment of workout options. Penni met us upon arrival and could not have been nicer. We will be back!

Fantastic Property


         
Review by Ellen on 01/20/2019

We searched for a while for the perfect home for our family and could not be happier with our choice! Not too far from George Town, 7 Mile Beach, grocery and many restaurants. But also private and away from the crowds. We recommend On The Rocks to anyone considering a stay here! Thank you for sharing your wonderful property.

2 Weeks in Paradise


         
Review by MJ on 01/20/2019

On The Rocks is a beautiful home with a stunning oceanfront view. The beach is a short walk away at the end of the street. We loved the neighborhood and the elevation. We had many family members visit for days during our stay. Family time! We ventured out to several other beaches as well - Rum Point, 7 Mile Beach, Heritage Beach, but Spotts Beach was our favorite. Thank you to Grand Cayman Villas for recommending beaches, snorkel sites, restaurants and activities. George with Silver Thatch Charters was our highlight of the trip. Two weeks flew by. We will be back and recommend the home to others. MJ

Amazing Vacation!!
