ABOUT SEA ORCHARD RETREAT

Sea Orchard Retreat is a boutique gated resort of oceanfront cottages on the quiet north coast of West Bay in beautiful Grand Cayman. Located just 10 minutes from Seven Mile Beach, guests can enjoy all the resorts, water-sports, restaurants and leisure activities the area has to offer. The shops of George Town & Camana Bay are also only a short drive away.**

The resort consists of four individual 2-bedroom cottages, a large resort pool with heated spa and cabanas, a fitness center, and seaside hammocks under sea grape trees. 

With 400 feet of natural shoreline perched on a reef-protected marine park, guests can enjoy a vibrant snorkeling experience or kayaking adventure. While it has a sandy beach, that is raked periodically, it's not a barefoot swimming beach. However, guests are provided both snorkeling gear and complimentary water shoes for exploring. 

Famous Ristorante Pappagallo is within walking distance while the new Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa is less than 10 minutes away by cab. Barkers Beach, an oceanfront nature conservancy home to nesting turtles, birds, and other fauna is a short 5-minute walk away. Since there is no Uber or Lyft on-island you might want to consider a rental car. The resort has gated on-site parking.

Beach Notes

Sea Orchard Retreat is a gated oceanfront boutique resort with 4 private well-decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bath villas surrounding an oceanfront pool and spa.  The actual beach here is sandy, however, the shoreline can be pebbly & rocky as one enters the water to snorkel.  Our guests will use kayaks to access the shallow snorkeling reef and coral heads.

Sea Orchard Retreat is less than 10 minutes from the barefoot swimming on 7 Mile Beach as well as all the restaurants, resorts, and watersports offered.

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.

Highly Recommend!

My husband and I had the best time staying here for a spontaneous vacation to the Caymans. You’re only 10-15 minutes away from much of George Town/Seven Mile Strip but it feels very quiet and secluded. The pool is amazing and the amenities within the villa were outstanding. Not to mention, every staff member we spoke with was extremely responsive and helpful. We would recommend this spot for anyone looking for a relaxing Caymans getaway!

Amazing stay at Papaya at the Sea Orchard

The Papaya Cottage was amazing! The property was pristine, amenities plenty, and Fiona was super courteous! I would definitely stay again and have recommended the property to several friends and coworkers already! You can’t beat the location, privacy, and splendor that the location offers!

A quiet paradise

We had a great vacation at Papaya. The front “yard” was so peaceful and the view spectacular. Fiona was so helpful and lent us snorkel gear to use. The kids loved the pool, we ate at Papagallo twice, we highly recommend the brunch. We went on a boat outing to Stingray City, snorkeled at some great reefs and enjoyed starfish city. We used Silver Thatch and our captain Big Kev and first mate Warren took excellent care of us and it was our family’s favorite day of the trip.

Amazing Wedding Spot


         
Review by LMartin on 03/17/2022
5 out of 5
What an amazing experience! Without exception, the guests LOVED our extended wedding weekend at Sea Orchard. So nice to have the property to ourselves occupying all four wonderful cottages, and having a pool and hot tub to ourselves. The wedding was held on the lawn at one end with vows overlooking the ocean. Overhead strings of lights that we had installed for the event made the area beautiful by night as well. Fantastic photos captured the unforgettable experience. The cottages were nicely decorated. Amenities provided everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. The area was quiet and so relaxing. My only regret is that I didn\\\'t get a chance to use the provided ocean kayaks and paddle boards - we ran out of time!

Great Luxurious Property!!

This luxurious property was absolutely perfect for our group gathering. Everyone had their own bedroom suite, view of the ocean, access to the pool, outdoor relaxation areas and more. The onsite staff was extremely helpful and accommodating with all of our need - both leading up to the trip, and while onsite. They provide ocean toys (paddleboards, snorkel gear, etc.) and we found a Yoga instructor to come teach on the property. Seven mile beach is a short cab ride away, to oceanfront hotels, dining and nightlife. I would highly recommend this paradise to groups who want to escape together, but want their own private lodging accommodations. It\'s amazing!

Fantastic Small Resort


         
Review by BD on 02/14/2018
5 out of 5
Our group of 6 couples rented all 4 cottages at the Sea Orchard Retreat, and we had a great stay at this intimate beachfront resort. The pool area is wonderful with plenty of lounges and tables/chairs and we spent hours poolside tanning, playing cards, enjoying music, and eating some meals. The cottages are very modern and have a great layout with a king bedroom on one side and a queen or 2 twin bedroom on the other side, providing very good privacy for every couple. Each unit has a full kitchen and washer/dryer, enabling us to eat some meals in and also do some laundry. A nice audio/video setup allows you to watch TV via AppleTV, or play music throughout the cottage due to speakers in all of the rooms. The Wifi was strong, and cellphone service was adequate. This is a very private, quiet resort, allowing you to have a very relaxing experience or to be a bit rowdy without worrying about disturbing the neighbors. We arranged for massages one day that were done in a small cabana down by the beach, and this was an amazing, relaxing experience for the wives. There are also excellent amenities such as kayaks, snorkeling gear, water shoes, plenty of beach towels, etc. You are only a short walk to the Pappagallo Restaurant where we had a couple of fantastic dinners. I would absolutely recommend this resort for groups like ours, and also for smaller groups that may take 1-2 cottages.
