RARE FIND – A CAYMAN VACATION COTTAGE RENTAL WITH GENUINE CAYMANIAN HOST

Grand Cayman Cottage Rental Photos and Description

An unsophisticated Cayman Islands Vacation Rental Cottage for the prudent guest

HOME SWEET HOME….Welcome to our place

Nestled in the arms of nature and only a stone’s throw from all Grand Cayman islands ‘activities is our little Cayman vacation cottage. Just a cozy Grand Cayman (continental) bed and breakfast rental cottage that feels so much like a small home away from home.

Located in a less populated area (1 immediate seasonal neighbor) our small Cayman Islands’ bed and breakfast vacation cottage is value priced and amenity packed for an economical and comfortable Grand Cayman vacation rental experience.

Guests are welcome to enjoy a continental breakfast in the comfort of their Cayman Islands’ vacation cottage rental or prepare your own fresh hot breakfast at your convenience in the fully outfitted Cayman cottage rentals’ kitchen.

Connected to your hosts’ residence only by the pool deck gives you a Cayman Islands private guesthouse experience but with the added Caymanian hospitality that you may not find with large private Grand Cayman vacation villa rentals.

The Royal Palm Cottage has 3 rental options available to guests. The cottage can be rented privately, the largest section of the cottage can be rented privately and the rear bedroom can be rented privately.

About Lisa - Owner/Manager

CAYMANIANS ARE KNOWN AS SOME OF THE WORLDS’ FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE…Know your host

Our family is a blended (as Caymanians say “muggled up” meaning mixed up) Cayman/American (all of Caymanian decent) family. We are 2 (1 3rd generation and 1 4th generation) born Caymanians and 3 American/Caymanians.

We are a family of 5 but living on the property we are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, 11 and 8). Our extended resident family includes our “aged” pet cats and mature Cayman dogs, none of which roam about the property (of course we walk our dogs but on leashes). Our pets are not allowed inside our Cayman Islands vacation guest cottage rental.

Lisa - Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Lisa - Owner/Manager chose Grand Cayman

Realizing that not all visitors to our beautiful island home are looking to stay in the ritzy high budget hotels and condos on Grand Cayman island, we had this idea to find a more authentic Cayman Islands vacation cottage.

In 2004, we were fortunate enough to stumble upon 2 small unloved Cayman architecture style cottages which sat not on the ocean but across the street and slightly elevated with a fantastic ocean view and immediately knew these would be our budget friendly Cayman vacation rental cottages.

Nestled far from the regular tourists’ hangouts but within close proximity to wonderful dining, grocery stores, beaches and other activities we were delighted with our find.

Vision in hand we set about transforming these once neglected Cayman island gems into our unsophisticated but homey Cayman vacation cottage rentals. Almost at our visions’ end Grand Cayman was devastated by hurricane Ivan who ripped through our island home, sparing lives but reaping property destruction.

Undeterred from our quest for a little Cayman vacation cottage we forged ahead with our second renovations and at the end we are happy to now share our budget rentals with family, friends and guest.

What makes this cottage unique

Overall guest will experience a no fuss, budget friendly Cayman rental that has many of the everyday modern amenities found at the fancier, more costly Grand Cayman vacation condos and villas. We welcome you to stay at our humble Cayman vacation cottage and enjoy our true Caymanian hospitality missing from a vacation experience at the large Grand Cayman Islands’ condos and villas.

Our stay at Bottoms Up Cottage was a very comfortable one. We found it to be a convenient location to visit the Island on either side in a very short time. The cottage itself was clean & comfortable with all the amenities of home with the freedom of doing laundry at our leisure. There was a nice private beach area to sit at with a short distance to excellent snorkeling. Lisa was very helpful in offering information which made for a very pleasurable stay. A must would be a night dive aboard the Atlantis Submarine & swimming with the stingrays aboard Captain Jimmy's glass bottom boat of Red Sail Sports.
