Great vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

A great vacation house! Everything was as promised! The area was nice and quiet, everything was extremely clean and organized, and private. If we had brought our kids they would have loved the upstairs. The beach was fantastic - some of the best snorkeling we found on the island that was accessible directly from a beach. You couldn't beat doing a little snorkeling, running back to the house for lunch, then sipping a beer in the hammock. Definitely would book again!

Great place! Very happy with location and property

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location on the east end with great snorkeling right off the property's beach. Saw more than 20 types of fish right in our back yard! Beach area is shared with the guests in the main house, but still very quiet.

Lorraine (property manager on site) checked in with us during the visit to make sure that we have everything we needed. The house and property description in the listing was accurate. No surprises! Follow the instructions for locking the front french doors, be sure to lock left door and pull up on right door's handle to lock.

Easy drive to the Botanical Gardens/Blue Iguana habitat. Grocery and liquor stores are very near by, just north of the property. We would recommend this property to anyone visiting the island who desires a private quiet location. Wish we could have stayed longer. Try Over the Edge for dinning out. It's on the north side.

Just a note on the directions provided, they state that there are two 50 mph speed signs when approaching the property, which we did not see. If you are approaching from the south side, just keep a look out for the big yellow house on your right after you pass Colliers beach. It's not easy to see, so you may not see it until you are right in front of it. It is easier to see approaching from the north.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review, Laurie! It seems the speed limit signs have either been removed or knocked over, sorry for the confusion. I used to tell people to look for the yellow house with the black roof and white widow's peak, but then everyone would ask me what a widow's peak was. So perhaps Collier's Beach is the better landmark. Over the Edge is actually my favourite place to eat, good food & reasonable prices. We loved having you and your family and hope to see you again!

Cute cottage, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I rented Cayman Cottage by the Sea for my adult children for a week, as we were staying in the neighboring Snuggle Beach unit. The cottage is very cute, and worked out perfectly for the three of them. It is in very good condition with recent renovations. The view in this picture is from the balcony off of the upstairs bedroom. The main house sits between the cottage and the beach, blocking the view to the left of the picture. However, it was a very nice place to sit and enjoy the view on a windy day as the main house also blocked the wind. There is easy access to the beautiful private beach. There are actually four units on this property, the cottage, the main upper part of the house, and two units on the bottom floor of the house. There was another family of 8 renting the upper part of the house and one of the bottom units while we were there. It never posed any problems and there are plenty of beach chairs and space for everyone. Sandra and Lorraine were very helpful with any questions or problems we had. The East End of the island is a less populated area, however, there are several restaurants fairly close to the property and a small grocery store within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review, Janet. We are happy you all had a great time. The 2nd floor terrace on the Cottage is a recent addition, and has been very popular with all our guests. Next time you come, we hope to be able to accommodate all of you together in Cayman Beach House.

Comfortable, away from the crowds

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Cottage by the Sea on the East End. Far away from the hustle and bustle of George Town but close enough to go to all the great snorkeling sites, Botanical gardens, and other attractions. Cozy, clean cottage. Nadine is wonderful and always available to meet any needs you have. We enjoyed snorkeling right at our own beach, lots of colorful fish around the old dock. Great walking beach, lovely sunrises, always a refreshing breeze! The local restaurants were all good, especially enjoyed Tukka. All in all, a great place to stay and explore the whole island!

Cottage by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 8 days for Spring Break at the Cottage for our family of 3. The pre-teen enjoyed having the upstairs to herself, while we enjoyed the downstairs. The owner recently expanded the balcony on the second floor providing easier access to the upstairs as well as a view to the beach from the balcony. Even had a coconut tree growing through the balcony. Easy to find our way around the island and the local grocery express had most things we needed for quick trips with more shopping available in town. We enjoyed snorkeling right off the beach, plenty of fish, starfish, conch, and even a few barracuda to admire. Bit of drive to the attractions in Georgetown and West Bay, but the lack of people and being able to sit on the beach alone for hours at a time was exactly what we wanted and got! Enjoyed watching the Kite Boarders practicing and learning in the waters off the beach. Our favorite restaurant on the island was just down the street at Tukka's check out the happy hour specials for a variety of appetizers and cocktails. We look forward to returning to the Cayman Islands and the cottage by the Sea in the near future.

Why The Owner chose East End

This would be known as "The Gardiner's Cottage" if staff were hired to tend to the grounds. The 1 bedroom apartment, which we call "Snuggle Beach" inside the large yellow house, would be the Maid's Quarters.

Cayman Cottage by the Sea is located in the peaceful community of Colliers, on the East End of Grand Cayman. We are 2 minutes away from a small strip mall with full convenience store, Italian Restaurant and liquor store. Also located across from the convenience store is the famous Caymanian 'Barefoot Man' dinner show -- a must see when you're in Cayman. 2 minutes in the opposite direction takes you to one of the best dive operators on the island, 'Ocean Frontiers'. There are great restaurants in BOTH directions.
