About Thom Zerhusen
Susan and Thom are originally from Baltimore, Maryland but they met in Cayman. Thom was working as a dive instructor at Don Foster's Dive and Susan was visiting Cayman on a dive vacation. 'We met on a dive trip to Stingray City and the rest is well...history.' They decided to call Cayman home and bought a dilapidated beach house in the heart of Bodden Town that they renovated and have lived in for over 20 years. 'After Hurricane Ivan destroyed most of Bodden Town and the Island we had to sart all over. We were lucky to find Castaway and decided to renovate the existing structures and make them available to visitors.' The lodge was first to be finished and became available to guest in 2011 and now the cottage is ready too. 'We have tried to make them unique and special and if you come to Castaway we hope you will find our little piece of paradise as magical as we do.'

A little slice of heaven!
Beautiful beach access, super clean property with everything you need.
Such a beautiful property and peaceful! Thom & Susan were great hosts! Snorkeling from the property was a hidden gem and it was hard to leave. Can't wait to visit again next summer.
Perfect Getaway Spot
Castaway Cottage was in a perfect location for a relaxing getaway, close enough to both the quiet East End of the island and all the action of the West End. We were able to easily access all areas of Grand Cayman quickly due to the central positioning in Bodden Town.
The cottage itself was lovely, clean, and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay, from a very well equipped kitchen to some loaner flippers for snorkeling! A beautiful view and beach just outside the door with plenty of comfortable seating for when we just felt like hanging out. Lots of great food and beaches were a quick drive when we wanted to explore.
Thom and Susan are friendly and attentive hosts that are easy to communicate with and available whenever needed. They welcomed us on arrival with a delicious homemade rum cake which we had no trouble finishing off! We checked out most of their recommended restaurants and local sights and enjoyed every one of them.
If we are fortunate enough to return to Grand Cayman we would love to stay at Castaway Cottage again! Thanks Thom and Susan for sharing this comfortable and relaxing place with us!
What a wonderful place. The pictures really don't do the cottage justice! We loved the home, the beach, the location...all of it. Thom and Susan were fantastic hosts -- lovely to talk to and there when you need them, but very respectful of private space. Their beach access is unparalleled. We roamed the island to find a beach to hang out on and ended up heading back to their place because it's just as lovely as anywhere else! The cottage had all that we needed and more, was just the right size for the two of us, and allowed us to have an amazingly comfortable and relaxing getaway. The location in Bodden Town is very easy to access and the people are incredibly friendly and nice. Grand Cayman is definitely our favorite Caribbean island -- so safe and friendly. Being in Bodden Town got us away from the tourism of Seven Mile Beach and provided us a more central location to access the island while giving our vacation a more local and "escape" feel. Thanks to Thom and Susan for their hospitality. We wouldn't change our stay here at all!
Castaway Cottage on Grand Cayman was everything we had hoped for in a honeymoon getaway. Cozy and clean. Beautifully appointed and decorated. Wonderful and picturesque views from our own private deck and beach. We definitely see ourselves coming back soon.
Great Honeymoon Destination!
