About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

Thatch Hill is located on the Northside of the island, just 300 yards east of the Rum Point Club. Thatch Hill features elevated views of the sparkling Caribbean sea, a large oceanfront freshwater pool, and a spacious screened porch for relaxing and watching the sunset after a day of surf and sand. The interiors are colorfully decorated in a typical Caymanian beach cottage style. A protective reef provides excellent snorkeling just steps from your back door!

Our repeat guests who stay at Thatch Hill year after year come back for the pool, the excellent snorkeling and the open-floorplan that divides the house with a large vaulted greenroom and the bedroom suites being on each side, with views of the Caribbean. TVs in both bedroom and a larger TV in the greatroom offer the convenience of home to an active family. Lastly; the proximity to Rum Point is perfect…close enough to be an easy walk…but far enough away so that on Sundays or crowded holidays, our guests can escape any crowds back to Thatch Hill.

Great Family Location In the Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

Thatch Hill was fantastic. My wife and I were there with our oldest daughter and her two kids. It is on the quiet North side close to Rum Point (short walk). What a great way to spend time. Having the screened porch was great in the morning. The deck was great in the afternoon with shade and almost always a nice breeze to keep it close to comfortable. The pool was wonderful. Nice to take a dip in the pool when it is hot. The house is set up nicely with great air conditioning. It is fully equipped with what you need to cook. The exterior area is well maintained and nicely raked. Did not have a bunch of debris in the yard like so many others have. The master bed was pretty comfortable. The twin beds are quite firm. However, the on-island manager purchased a foam topper so that they were comfortable. The snorkeling was pretty good right out the back door. We had to kind of go searching the area a little to find a lot of nice coral and fish. As soon as you find the coral, you find the fish. We rented snorkel gear, stand up paddle board and 2 person kayak. For our take on the close by eating establishments, the Wreck Bar at Rum Point is pretty good. The Restaurant there is good but pricey. The Kaibo Restaurant was awful. The outside tables were dirty and the food was not good with the exception of the pizza. The drinks were nothing special. For overall good eating, the Calypso Bar and Grill was fantastic. We chartered the boat that is available through Grand Cayman Villas to take us from Rum Point across the bay to the restaurant. Fantastic time. Also, we chartered the same boat for the stingray city, snorkel and starfish point. The boat is very nice and the Captain was fantastic. Highly recommend the boat charters. All in all, no doubt we would rent this house if we return to Grand Cayman.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! The charter is a nice experience we offer to our guests. And it is tough to compare any restaurant to Calypso Grill!!! The Kaibo Upstairs is the dinner restaurant. The beach bar and grill is more for lunches and snacks. Wish you had tried the Upstairs as that is a wonderful resytaurant on par with Calypso Grill... Please come again! Scott

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Thatch Hill. The location met all of our requirements – privacy, quiet and convenience. The house is a standalone house with a swimming pool, right on the ocean with a small sandy beach and walk in access to good snorkeling. It's a charming 2 bedroom, 2 bath beach cottage with porches all around the house. The front and side porch is open (sunset views through the trees) and the large screened in porch in the back (dining for 6, lounge chairs for 2) faces the pool and beach. The pool deck had lounge chairs for 4 and the beach had 2 or 3 lounge chairs. There are several good restaurants nearby. Rum Point, with its 2 restaurants is within walking distance (less than a mile), Kaibo, with its 2 restaurants is a long walk or 5 minute drive away and several other good places to eat are within a 20 to 30 minute drive.

We were two adult couples for the first week and then just DH and me for the second. The bedrooms, each with a full bath, were separated by the large kitchen/dining/living room. There was privacy; however, the doors were louvered (great for airflow) so some sound from the shared space carried into the bedrooms. Those of us who slept in could hear breakfast being prepared but since most of the time everyone was out on the screened in porch this was not a problem. In addition to a sliding door to the porch from the living room each bedroom also had a porch door.

The house was clean, comfortable and fully stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals and we had breakfast at the house everyday and at most one other meal out each day. We are seriously considering renting it again next year even though we have a "rule" against repeats.

Best Rental Experience Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thatch Hill had everything we had hoped to find on this vacation: privacy, peace and quiet, a magnificent view of the sea, our own pool & easy access to tennis. The sea across the pool could be seen from every room – so I did not have to be out in the heat to enjoy the view.The décor was a fun, colorful Caribbean. Several places to sit and read – comfortable Adirondack chairs on the front porch, chaise lounges in back by the pool overlooking the sea. Comfy beds, plentiful towels and linens; very clean and looked recently renovated. Kitchen area was big enough for all 3 of us to putter around. Many books on the shelf so we put aside our Kindles. AC worked great. Likewise the washer, dryer & wifi. Plenty of hot water in the nicely appointed showers. Amazing to be able to go out snorkeling from the back porch & not have to lug our gear into the car, or have to figure out what to do with our car key, money, etc, while snorkeling or take a long boat ride. Sometimes several hours after we had snorkeled, we decided to head in again, it was just so lovely! We saw a lot of fish, & some interesting formations, perhaps not as many as when we've gone on a snorkel boat tour, but having such easy access was so special. Not the amount of restaurants that you'll find in busy Georgetown (best fish tacos at Sunset House) or 7 mile beach, but still plenty to choose from. We went to the Lighthouse, Over the Edge, Kaibo, Wreck Bar, Rum Point Club, Tukka, BigTree Barbeque. Rum Point was a 5 minute walk along the road & a bit longer walking (wearing sandals with toe guards) along the rocky beach-it's a lovely spot to watch the sunsets.This is a marine area with sharp rocky outcroppings, so if you're looking for miles of wide sandy beach to walk along, this may not be for you. However, with proper shoes you can still walk at length along the beach, & in fact the sand between the pool and the sea was quite soft & clean so there's plenty of room to sit out there if desired. We played tennis every day on a court we were able to rent for the week; just a short walk from the house. We used our rental car to explore the island, Botanical Gardens, Mastic Trail, East End, West Bay. But best of all was just being at Thatch Hill! A special thank you to Jim, Scott, Grace and Didi at Cayman Villas for their superb customer service & the extensive island information they provided; also to manager Judy, who stood by to assist on the island. We hope to return!

If you are looking to get away from the crowds - this is the perfect house! Upon entering the house, you are greeted with fantastic views of the Caribbean Ocean through the back windows and sliding doors. The main room is an open floor plan which includes the sitting area and the kitchen. We cooked alot of our meals here and the kitchen is very well equipped with all necessities. There are 2 bedroom units - one on either side of the main room which really allows alot of privacy. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors that exit onto the screened porch and allow beautiful ocean views to fill the rooms. The pool was saltwater and a fantastic amenity - it is in the full sun in the morning and then starts to become shady in the afternoon. The beach in front of the house is one of the best for snorkeling - mostly calm water and reef protected! The house is also very close to Rum Point and Kaibo Resort. Grand Cayman Villa's were great to work with - easy check in process, offered a ton of information and they also have an "on island" rep that checked in on us and also was very helpful! Cannot wait to go back - already booked for next year!

Car: recommended

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing breeze (trade winds) from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. (www.rumpointclub.com ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the www.redsailcayman.com 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina (www.kaibo.ky) Click map on our home page. Lastly…about 20 minutes east we have (2) large resorts in the east end (www.morritts.com and www.thereef.com ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a coffee/pastry shop). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. www.tortugadivers.com and www.whitesandwatersports.com offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
