Property description

If you are loooking to de-stress, relax and spend some quality time with your loved one, Castaway Cottage is just what you need. Wake to breathtaking sunrises while enjoying breakfast on the spacious deck overlooking the sea. Stroll the beach searching for the quintessential seashell before snorkling within the protective reef, then lull away the rest of the morning in a hammock under a swaying coconut palm on your private beach.
When it's time for lunch, visit the nearby local fish fry before you decide whether to spend the afternoon kayaking or exploring the beauty of the island from this central location tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the overcrowded hotels. This lovingly restored authentic beach bungalow, with all new modern amenities, has everything you need for the perfect beach experience. Castaway Cottage is your own little slice of paradise offering a genuine Caribbean beach vacation.

Owner info

About the owner: 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 15 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.'
