Welcome to Our Cayman Cottage! A private retreat hidden amid lush landscaping in the East End. With 7 bedrooms, this villa is ideal for big families looking to escape to the Caribbean for year-around sunshine and relaxation. Create everlasting memories at this hidden idyllic seaside villa.

Elegantly built into the majestic East End along the reef-protected coast, this stunning retreat provides dramatic elevated views of the Caribbean Sea. Live life outdoors on the covered balcony that offers a comfy sectional, dining table, and unmatched ocean views.

Spanning 6,500 sq. ft. across four floors, Our Cayman Cottage is the perfect family vacation home inside and out. Guests can spread out across the villa’s 7 bedrooms, enjoy meals in the open concept living and dining areas, or retreat to the lower level game room.

The game room is furnished with 2 retro arcade games plus a shuffleboard and pool table, and a full-service bar with a small fridge, ice maker, wine cooler, and kegerator—contact us 2 weeks before arrival to arrange a keg!

Bedroom Layout

(Sleeps 20 guests, 16 adults max**)

  • #1 Oceanfront Master Suite — upper-level bedroom with king bed, high ceilings, sweeping ocean views, private balcony, and en-suite bath
  • #2 Queen Suite — upper-level bedroom with ocean views, private balcony, and en-suite with stand up shower
  • #3 Queen Loft — loft level bedroom on its own private floor with panoramic ocean views
  • #4 Left Queen Suite — main level bedroom with queen bed, private en-suite bath, and direct access to the pool deck
  • #5 Right Queen Suite — main level bedroom with queen bed, private en-suite bath, and direct access to the pool deck
  • #6 Queen & Twin — pool level bedroom with queen bed and twin bed with a trundle bed and a full bath down the hall
  • #7 Bunk Beds — pool level bedroom with two sets of bunk beds with a full bath down the hall
  • Owner willing to accommodate 2 additional children (8 or younger) on trundle beds in bunk room

Steps off the pool deck is a secluded sandy cove accessible only via a private stairway. The protected reefs behind the home provide guests an opportunity for exceptional snorkeling expeditions and kayaking adventures. The villa also comes equipped with two kayaks* and 3 bicycles for guests to enjoy.

The waters behind the villa are rarely snorkeled meaning guests often see exotic marine life such as spotted eagle rays and larger schools of juvenile fish. With very little current, this is a great and safe area for children to snorkel in.

One of the best aspects of this home is its privacy while still being close to grocery stores and restaurants. Our Cayman Cottage is only 3 minutes away from Foster's grocery express and less than 10 minutes from some of the best restaurants on-island that most tourists don’t get to experience! There are also two resorts nearby with barefoot beaches, watersports, and restaurants. 


^Reduced rates offered to small groups not requiring all bedrooms. See Rates tab for pricing.

Beach Notes

The beach behind Our Cayman Cottage is both pebbly and sandy. The beach is also reef protected which creates a marine environment of corals and grasses for all our marine life to live in.

We encourage you to wear water shoes or swim fins for foot protection when in the water. The snorkeling here is superb, as there are a very limited number of snorkelers in the water to startle the turtles, rays, tarpon, grouper, juvenile schools, lobster and conch that roam the ocean floor. We often see eagle rays swimming by from the pool deck, as well as lines of squid out near the reef. The kayaks are provided to help our guests get out to the best snorkeling spots on the island.

We are also one mile from the two largest resorts in the east end. Only a 10-minute walk away, both resorts are open to the public with restaurants, bars, daily entertainment, and watersports.

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.

Our Cayman Cottage is an amazing property with everything you could possibly need for a warm and relaxing getaway. The owners and property managers were very pleasant, helpful, and attentive. From booking with Grand Cayman Villas & Condos, to the Silver Thatch guest services, everything was seamless and efficient. I would recommend to anyone!

We enjoyed Our Cayman Cottage for the week of Thanksgiving. We come from all over the US and this home gave us a place to all be together. Deep-sea fishing, cave exploring, horse back riding, bicycling, swimming, tanning, petting kitties - this house has it all! 🙂 Thank you for opening your beautiful home to our family! These memories will last a lifetime!

Thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic pool and views. The house was lovely-we celebrated with family from Canada and the UK. It was great to be together again in such a beautiful setting. Early morning kayaking and games in the evening made for some fun times. Amenities were great! We would definitely recommend 🙂

This home is absolutely beautiful! We had the best time here. We came vacationing for the 3rd time and Our Cayman Cottage has been the most excellent example and standard for a vacation home. We were here three years ago and enjoyed everything immensely. This time we found Taco Cantina and couldn\'t recommend it enough to everyone. Go and Enjoy the island! It\'s the best!!

Best Vacation ever!!


         
Review by Debby on 08/02/2019
5 out of 5
The house was beautiful and well maintained. There is enough room to accommodate 20+ guests (we only had 8). The pool, the view...everything was great. It was a little bit of drive to Georgetown, 7 Mile Beach and that whole area, but honestly we were having such a good time being together at the house, cooking, swimming, kayaking and relaxing that we did mind.

Loved This House
