Our century old Caymanian cottage is located on the National Trust's Historical Walking Tour of old Caymanian homes on the sea side of Boggy Sand Road, West Bay, just off the main West Bay Road. The cottage is nestled in ancient seagrape trees at the northern end of world famous Seven Mile Beach and is in a residential area, away from the bustle of the main resort areas. Just off shore are some of the most popular dive sites on the western end of Grand Cayman. There are also shallower reefs for snorkeling with popular Cemetery Reef just a few hundred yards away. For landlubbers, the beach or the deck under the shade of the seagrape trees provide the ideal setting to enjoy a good book and a beverage. Rest and relaxation are guaranteed at this cozy seaside cottage.
Staying put: 'Rest Assured' is a renovated hundred year old Caymanian cottage offering modern amenities for exceptional comfort and convenience. The main bedroom is furnished with an antique four poster mahogany bed, the wood having come from an ancient mahogany forest in Cayman, along with other antique pieces. There is an ensuite bathroom with a large soak/jetted tub and separate shower. The rest of the furnishings in the cottage are tropical casual with local art providing the decor. An extra seating area is easily closed off to create an additional bedroom if needed. Full room sliding glass doors offer unobstructed views to the sea. There is a large porch with ceiling fans but the yard is shaded by ancient seagrape trees creating a cool place to relax either on the deck, in the swing or hammocks. The beach and the water are almost too close for comfort.
Getting out: Within walking distance of Rest Assured are local eateries, a full service grocery store, gas station, Presbyterian church as well as a small plaza with a bank, medical clinic, sandwich shop, photo shop and Internet service provider.
The world famous Boatswains Beach (formerly the Turtle Farm), Dolphin Cove, Dolphin Discovery, the new Motor Museum and Hell are just a short 3 mile drive away.
Within the district of West Bay are several well known eating establishments including Ristorante Pappagallo, Cracked Conch, Osetra Bay, Calypso Grill and Morgan's Harbour, all of which are also only a short drive away.

Cayman's newest dive attraction, the US Navy ship 'Kittywake', was sunk right off our beach on 5th January 2011 in approximately 100' of water. Parts of the ship are only 5' below the water's surface which makes the short kayak paddle out worth the trip for both divers and experienced snorklers. Dive boat operators also run several guided trips daily to the ship from the nearby public dock in West Bay.
