Cayman Castle and Guesthouse sits directly oceanfront on a private 2-acre walled estate. Perched on an elevated point of land, the Cayman Castle grounds include an attached private white sandy beach with excellent snorkeling and sunbathing. Infinity pool (heated in the winter), multi-tiered oceanfront terraces, panoramic roofed balconies and a covered first floor veranda provide guests plenty of room to spread out, share meals, or enjoy the stunning vistas.
This grand estate is not only one of the largest rental villas on the entire island, it also is a notable landmark. Virtually anyone on island is familiar with the Castle in the East End. While we are neighbors to the Wreck of The 10 Sails Park and the police constable's residence, this property enjoys no residential neighbors to the north or south for a good 500 feet in either direction. With the Castel's gate shut in the evenings, guest can enjoy their privacy.
The owner takes immaculate care of the home making upgrades every fall to keep the experience not only refreshing and pleasant for the repeat guests, but for newcomers to Cayman Island as well.
18 guest maximum, of whom 14 may be Adults 18 years or older. Infants in cribs do not count against guest occupancy.
