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.

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.

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.

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

Mr. Brian,

I wanted to find just the right words to describe the essence of your charming cottage.

You were an absolute joy to work with in coordinating the dates for my trip. You made everything easy and seemless.

It is evident that you and your wife place a lot of pride and love in the Sea Lodge with all the upgrades and decorative touches throughout the cottage. It is truly a labor of love and appreciation for the Cayman's culture. Mr. Linsford speaks very highly of you as well. He asked if I knew you and I told him that I felt like I did (although) we have never met in person -- only by email.

My absolute favorite part of the house is the seaside lanai- I spent every waking moment on the lanai enjoying the landscape. I love how all the doors open up to the lanai and expands the cottage space two fold, and I loved the welcoming white rocking chairs on the courtyard side-- very nice touch.

During this trip, I visited the Botanical Gardens ( quite a treat) and the Crystal Caves (newest attraction on the northside), in addition to Stingray City. The caves are something everyone must see and explore. The guided tour is very well done. There are currently three caves open and one more to come online this summer. You may want to add the Crystal Caves to your "Things To Do List".

Between Kirk's Corner and Over the Edge I was well nourished with great local foods. I was able to meet one of the cooks at Kirk's Corner- Ms. Bloosom.

The entire week was nourishment for the soul, spirit, mind and body.

Thanks again for your kindness!

We arrived to the Sea Lodges and found everything ready for our stay. The home had everything that we needed including beach towels and snorkel gear (even though we brought our own). We loved opening the doors and feeling the ocean breeze throughout the cottage. There are wonderful lounge chairs outside the patio to watch the sunrise and chairs and tiki umbrellas for a relaxing beach experience. The grounds are kept clean and well manicured. Just outside is a 'marine park' with tropical fish, rays, and turtles.

Brian was terrific and provided prompt replies to all of my questions. We loved the decorations and furniture. The bedding was soft and relaxing.

During our visit, we rented a car through Priceline and visited snorkel sites all over the island. We took Dexter's Fantasia tour to swim with the Stingrays. It was the best value on the beach. Dexter's crew gave us a fun experience. We ate at Rum Point, Kaibo and Over the Edge. I highly recommend stopping at the grocery store in Bodden Town before heading north as there isn't a grocery store on the North Shore and grocery stores are closed on Sundays. There is a nice charcoal grill at the lodge for some yummy bbq cooking.

The Sea Lodges and #14 are a very special little spot and we can't wait to come back!

As beautiful as the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Grand Cayman, celebrating my 60th birthday. What a gorgeous place to stay. You can see that the owners take pride in their place and add all the touches that make it convenient and inviting. The place was very clean and newly renovated which made it feel comfortable and homey. Everything is there that you need. The beach was totally ours and we enjoyed just sitting in the chairs on the beach, something we haven't been able to do on other trips. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and tried to stay away from the busyness of Georgetown as much as possible. Rum Point and Kaibo Beach are very close if you want entertainment, water sports, or great food and drink. There is a large assortment of books and movies to please any person. We miss the sound of the waves already. It is way too quiet here at home! There is nothing better than the tropical breezes coming in at night. The Crystal Caves just opened 6 miles down the road and was a nice way to spend a couple hours. My husband enjoying running on the quiet roads and seeing all the beautiful houses and beaches. Highly recommended. Thanks Brian and Dawn for letting us enjoy your gorgeous place. It helped soothe the soul and refresh the body.

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The owners take great pride in this cottage. Very well kept in a beautiful location on the "far side" of Grand Cayman. Close to some great restaurants and activities. Brian & Dawn are awesome to work with and are very helpful with any questions you may have. We would love to come back again to this perfect spot in Grand Cayman. We had a fantastic week!

Life changing vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Sea Lodge in July for a week for our 19th anniversary. It was an incredible experience. Brian was great about answering all my questions beforehand not knowing what to expect never having been to Grand Cayman. The entire time we were there I was planning how we could come back. It was a very quiet week with practically no one there other than us. I was worried about proposed thunderstorms but the only time there were any was at night and they were spectacular! The night lit up beautifully like nothing we had experienced.

We've never stayed that close to the ocean before. The pictures don't do justice. We snorkeled every day, saw lobsters, stingray, and beautiful fish right out front of the house. We snorkeled one day at 7 mile beach and it didn't compare with what was right in front of us at the sea lodge. We felt completely safe the entire time we were there. Every restaurant was great when we went out and the grocery stores were fully stocked with everything we needed for dining at home. The people on Grand Cayman are friendly, gracious, and Barbara the "caretaker" was very helpful and had the house clean and ready when we arrived.

We took a catamaran at West Bay to see the stingrays while we were there. That was a fun outing that we would recommend. We highly recommend Dexter's Fantasea Tours. $35 compared to at least twice that much for most and a very personable guy.

Bottom line is we would and will come back and stay at Brian's place in a heartbeat! Thank you, Brian!!

Brian was helpful from the get go, and Miss Barbara was wonderful, very helpful, and friendly. We had all the information we needed and recommendations for restaurants and tours.

The drive from the airport took under an hour but was a nice drive, giving you the opportunity to see a lot of the island.

The cottage was easy to find. It was clean, comfortable, well kept, and very well equipped. There was a movie and book library that was well stocked.

We found condiments in the fridge and spices in the cupboard. The breeze coming through the plantation shutters throughout the day was wonderful, and it brought the sound of the ocean with it. We could watch the sunrise from the bed, and eat breakfast watching the waves. The beach was just steps away and it was incredibly quiet. We saw maybe 5 people over our week stay. It was a little rough to snorkel in the shallow waters here and I was uncomfortable to go any deeper but the water was a great temperature. We walked to Rum point via the beach and back via the road. Easy both ways. Rum point is where we spent most of our time. The wreck bar was a great place for lunch. The Treasure chest was the only shop we visited, and Red Sail tours was the best.

I would highly recommend Sea Lodge cottage and I hope the next visitor enjoys it as much as we did.

Thank you Brian.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

I am just back from a wonderful six nights and seven days at this charming sea lodge. I am blessed to have found this remarkable property to celebrate my milestone birthday.

If you're looking to unplug, sit still and reconnect with what really matters away from all the clutter distrations and stress of the world--- Unit #14 is your special place. Unit #14 offers everything you want and more.

From the minute you open the doors and the plantation shutters to the incredible views of the caribbean sea, feel the warm sea breeze on your face and explore the rhythm of the island, smell the salt air and admire the palm trees, you immediately relax and unwind and know you have arrived to a special place on earth. You literally step back in time to simpler way of living and a simpler lifestyle.

My week at Cayman Kai was like heaven on earth. The property is excellent. You won't find a better value for your buck. You have your own private and secluded beachfront property. The sunrises are amazing and the sunsets are too. I felt right at HOME from day one and immediately started planning my next visit to the Island. This is a special place. It is private, secure, safe and sacred.

This unit is beautifully decorated - lots of great touches and attention to detail. The property managers Miss Barbara and Mr. Linsford are incredible kind people and will make you feel right at home.

I will return soon and when I do I will stay at Unit #14. Thank you for a beautiful week.
