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.

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.

Cozy Cottage and Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the Cayman's for a one week vacation. We had a wonderful time, the cottage was perfect for our party of 4 adults. We enjoyed snorkeling and fishing right off the beach. Our husbands caught fish for our supper. It was a very private, peaceful beach and our cottage had everything we needed. Both Sandra and Nadine were great with communication and to help us with anything we needed. We plan to go back to our home away from home!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect-- the East End really allowed us get away from cruise ship crowds and tourists. Yet, when we wanted to go to 7-mile beach, it's just a 45 minute drive. It does have several great snorkeling sites, too. We would recommend renting a car to stay at the cottage, then you are free to explore the entire island.

The cottage was perfect for our family of 4. It is super clean and it has a nice lay-out. Nadine, the owner, is wonderful-- we truly enjoyed talking with her and she was very helpful. She ensured that we had everything we needed-- she even got a pizza pan for us, so we could cook pizza for our kids! She is a fun person, and her energy spread to make our visit fun.

The beach out front is gorgeous-- with very few people in the area. The old dock makes a wonderful habitat to many species of colorful fish, so we snorkeled here daily! We highly recommend the Cottage by the Sea. (Hi, Nadine! Thank you!)

My stay at this cottage was everything I had hoped for and more. I thought I had reservations at a 7 mile resort for a conference I was attending only to find out an hour before leaving for the airport that they had been erroneously canceled. One of the best things to happen to me! I emailed Sandra after seeing the cottage was available. She called me and helped work everything out, sent directions, things to do, places to eat all before I had to leave. I loved getting away from seven mile beach each day as I drove back to the cottage and watched the scenery morph from kfc/shops/and resorts to a different pace and natural beauty. I sat on the beach each evening to see the stars and snorkeled the dock each chance I could (saw ~20 species of fish). I loved how cozy the cottage was, the fully-stocked kitchen, the upstairs balcony, and getting to know Nadine. She helped with everything (I had a hard time locking the door) and is simply a really interesting, cool person. Amazing experience...already convincing my husband to return with me.

Owner's Response: Dear Sue, We are so happy you chose to stay with us when the Westin cancelled your reservation without notice and so lucky you are a Marine Biologist. I had no idea there were 20 different species of fish at our dock! WOW! How exciting! Of course, we would love to have you and your husband stay with us when you return.

All we wanted and more...

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Cottage on April 24 for our honeymoon. We had issues with the flight which made us arrive later than expected but we had no issues finding or getting into the cottage. Nadine came over and met us as we arrived. She had put beautiful flower petals around the cottage and left us a bottle of champagne and a welcome note. We were so very pleased with this place. The cottage was very clean and cozy. It had everything we needed. You truly are a few steps from the beach and the view is amazing. If you are wanting to go be around a ton of people and party all night...this is NOT the place for you. We saw maybe 5 other people on the beach the entire 6 days we were there and they were people that had walked from a resort down the road. Our desire was to go somewhere we could relax and chill as much as possible and this place did not disappoint. There was construction being done to the big house. Nadine apologized for the noise but we honestly never heard it. Speaking of Nadine - She is WONDERFUL!!! We felt like we left there knowing a new friend. She even sent us home with an amazing wood carved fish that we will forever cherish.

We recommend this place to anyone traveling to Grand Cayman. If we ever go back we know exactly where we will be staying. :-)

A cute, clean place in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful time staying at the Cayman Cottage by the Sea. Sandra responded to all of our messages promptly, was extremely helpful, professional and pleasant to communicate with. The property manager Alden was amazingly prompt, capable and really helpful, too. The cottage is very homey, clean, well-stocked with plenty of towels and is in very close proximity to the beach. The location is fantastic if you want to avoid the typical resort crowds. One of our favorite things during our stay was watching the sunrise every morning from the main deck, which has a lovely view of the ocean, just steps away from our door. Sandra provided a great list of places to eat, things to do, and other helpful information about the area. We tried a couple of the restaurants she recommended, and the food and service was terrific. Based on our all-around great experience here, we highly recommend this property.
