Grand Cayman Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, sleeps 2, great for couples

Please read our reviews! Fully licensed by the Cayman Islands Dept. of Tourism meeting strict standards of safety and cleanliness. No security deposit required. Gorgeous turquoise sea and sand beach right outside the doors of Sea Lodge #14, continuously updated and redecorated by meticulous owners. This is what the Caribbean was like 50 years ago. Relax and remember how to breath again in our unique and comfortably furnished oceanfront beach cottage at Rum Point on Grand Cayman Island. Listen to the surf and watch the sunrise from the king size bed. Lie on the quiet beach or enjoy swimming and snorkeling. This part of the north shore is designated as a protected marine park, so the fish and the reef are amazing. Many books and DVD's in our library. Relax on the two screened porches. Porch rockers on back sunset lanai. Washer/ dryer and free wi-fi. Cooled by the trade winds through plantation shutters and three ceiling fans; no air conditioning.

All rooms view the Caribbean. Waves breaking on the reef and trade wind breezes lull you to sleep, overhead fans in each room keep you comfortable, nice fully equipped kitchen with new granite counter tops, microwave, stove, refrigerator, blender, totally renovated bathroom in 2015, fast wireless internet, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, good linens and towels, 2 screened lanais, beach chairs and patio furniture, beach towels, stereo with i-pod connection, flat screen with large DVD collection, optional maid service and grocery service.

STUFF TO DO!!!!: Lots to do besides bronze on the beach with your book!

Plenty of local events: Pirate's Week in February, marathons, Pedro's Castle, horseback riding, pirate's caves.

George Town: Lots of duty free sales, the harbor, restaurants and night spots.

Explore the community: Visit the Saturday morning Farmer's Market.

Walk to Rum Point: A short quarter mile walk down the beach (10 minutes) or drive (two minutes)! Enjoy watersports, and take the boat out to Stingray City. Eat your lunch at the colorful picnic tables - reasonable food prices - Visit the Shipwreck Beach Bar, get an ice cream, have your hair braided, enjoy the shade in your beach lounge or hammock. Kids love the shallow waters there.

Schedule a dive with Ocean Frontiers - reliable, professional, reasonable, and the best dive operation on Cayman: Located on the East End, a 15 minute drive.

Queen's Botanic Park: See beautiful tropical gardens and hopefully, a Blue Iguana!. On Frank Sound Road.

MORE TO DO!!!: Visit Black Pearl Skate and Surf Park next to Hurley's Grand Harbour. At 62,000 sq. ft. it is the largest concrete skate park in the world. Lessons and rentals available. The Waveloch Surf Machine produces an 11 foot wave! It is also one of it's kind in the world. Take the little ones to the Turtle Farm in West End. Everyone likes to visit 'Hell' - if only to get the T-shirt. Buy the Tortuga Rum Cake and eat it with whipped cream. Take an Atlantis Submarine excursion. Take a bioluminescence kayak tour at night. Go kite boarding or wind surfing on the East End at Morritt's Resort; the calm water inside the reef and strong trade winds make it a truly perfect and unique venue. Considered one of the top 10 wind surfing sites in the world. Go on a Cayman Island Helicopter tour. Walk the amazing and famous 7-mile Beach. Dine, dine, dine. Grand Cayman is home to some of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean. Walk the Mastic Trail into Cayman's wild and undisturbed interior.

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

Howdy Brian!

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.

A rare find!

  • 5 of 5

perfect spot to rest and unwind. The unit had everything we needed, the grounds were in great shape. It's a quick walk to the beach/ocean with great snorkeling. This place has a great vibe that you don't want to miss, it's a rare find in these days of high end resorts and the crowds that come along with them. Go and enjoy!

Quiet relaxing snorkeling community

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had Such a wonderful stay at the sea lodges, we were in unit 14. Our neighbors have been coming here 20+ years and we can see why. The property has all of the basics that we need: comfortable beds, full kitchen, and steps away from the beach. Just like the other reviews state The water is perfect for snorkeling. There are 2 good entry points to start snorkeling that our neighbors showed us and also to exit where the 2 white houses are closer to rum point beach. We were able to celebrate our 5th anniversary and hope to keep coming back like our Sea lodge neighbors! Thanks again to sea lodges owner and guests for making for a memorable getaway.

low key, private, awesome

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about our experience. The cottage was clean and very comfortable and had just about everything you could hope for and more in terms of the kitchen. We loved having an outdoor shower and clothesline, and we did not miss having an air conditioner because there were so many fans. No bugs! Went snorkeling 2 or 3 times a day right in front of the cottages and sat on the beach and maybe saw 3 or 4 people a day, unless we ventured to Rum Point beach club, Kaibo (downstairs beach restaurant; we never tried the fancier upstairs), or Over the Edge-- all wonderful restaurants nearby. We never did 7 Mile Beach at all-- hotels, nightlife, fancy dining and shopping were not what we were looking for. We just wanted peace, quiet, and perfect snorkeling, and that's what we got! Brian was very easy to get in touch with, and the whole process was simple and efficient. Huge thanks for a perfect vacation!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Lodge was very nice and clean, right on the water with beautiful views. Its on the quiet side of the island away from the tourist. There wasn't an ac unit but the breeze kept things comfortable. Very nice and no issues came up.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is really difficult to put into words how perfect our time was at Brian and Dawn's Sea Lodge Cottage. If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway, away from crowds this is the perfect place to stay. My husband and I stayed a week to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The cottage had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. The fact that there are no windows, only doors that opened to the screened in lanai made us feel like we were outside,even when we were inside. Having no air conditioning made the experience even more peaceful, as the breeze blew through the cottage day and night, and we fell asleep listening to the waves, and woke to the sunrise as if we were sleeping right on the beach. We took long walks, went for runs, snorkeled, cooked on the grill. read, my husband painted, and we went for drives to explore other parts of the island. We rented a jeep at Andy's at the airport and had the top down all week. You should absolutely consider a jeep so that you can still be outside while exploring, and the jeep allows you to drive down the dirt paths all over the island to access dot paths to deserted beaches! My husband and I enjoyed the other spots but agreed that our beach at Sea Lodges was the best of all!

Located on the north side of Grand Cayman Island -- far from the crowds -- in the peaceful residential area of Cayman Kai amidst beautiful large homes on either side at a distance, we are near Rum Point (1/4 mile walk down the beach) with its beach bar, daily BBQ lunch specials, hammocks on the beach, music, hair braiding, a resident parrot, picnic tables, swimming and gift shop...and this is for after you tire of being on our large perfect private white sand beach outside your back door.
