About Brian or Dawn Steeland
My wife Dawn and I started coming to Grand Cayman in 2000 to scuba dive with our 2 children. We fell in love with the gentle people, perfect climate, and beautiful unspoiled sea. We finally purchased a piece of this paradise in 2010. It is a dream come true. Our cottage is one of 16 that were built as a dive resort in the 1960s on what was the very remote north shore. It has miraculously survived all the developers and is continuously preserved and improved by the very passionate individual owners. There is nothing like it left on Grand Cayman. We love to share it with our guests and receive lots of very positive reviews. We are blessed to have a local Caymanian couple, Miss Barbara and her husband Linsford care for our cottage and guests. They are like family to us! Contact us anytime. We love to discuss this very special place with anyone interested!

Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to drop you a note to say that we so loved visiting Cayman and your beautiful condo on the sea last week. The boys and I are still floating along in a half dream state from our time in paradise. Your space was exactly perfect for us with the pull out sofa for the boys, the fully equipped kitchen, all the fun DVDs, RUMMIKUB!, and the wonderful porch for dining.
We took your advice and snorkeled twice a day, visited Stingray City, walked the beach, ate out and I even got to drop a Travel Bug at one of the geocaches nearby that we picked up in Utah that "wanted to travel the world".
LOVED the beach parties at Kaibo and Rum Point. In fact we spent quite some time out at Rum Point drinking frozen concoctions, enjoying a casual lunch, swimming, playing volleyball, reading on the beach and shopping at the gift shop.
But far and away the most magnificence was spent snorkeling. The rays were incredible, the starfish out past Kaibo were a treat, and I got to log that I saw a shark right out front!, a Moray Eel and Scorpion Fish out at Coral Gardens, a lion fish about 10 feet from your shore that seems to be lodging there since it was in the same spot the three times I looked, a barracuda, and more blue heads, jacks, grunts, butterfly fish, angelfish, tile fish, needle fish, basslets, snappers, tang, parrot fish, and squirrel fish than I can possibly count. Absolutely mind bending.
So, a huge thank you for opening up your property to us and being so accommodating to my dad and the rest of us.
