Property description

7BR Luxury Cayman Castle & Guesthouse is directly oceanfront on a private 2-acre gated & walled estate on an elevated point of land and enjoys a wide white-sand beach with excellent snorkeling & sunbathing. Infinity pool, multi-tiered oceanfront terraces, panoramic roofed balcony and a covered 1st floor veranda provide guests plenty of room for spreading out, dining or enjoying the views; shaded or in the sun.

(3) thatched palapas, (4) kayaks, heated infinity pool in winter and walking distance to Ocean Frontiers dive shop (as well as 3 lunch spots) make this home a convenient villa choice for a larger family. Cayman Castle also makes an intimate wedding venue (no invited guests permitted; limit 18 total). Custom 17 ft. mosaic dining table for large family meals and entertaining. Seats 18 easily (we have 20 dining chairs in case you have guests).

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 the island will know of the "Castle in East End". While we are neighbors to the "Wreck of The 10 Sails Park" and police constable's residence; this property enjoys no residential neighbors to the north for 500 feet+ or to the south for another 500 feet+. With the gate shut in the evenings; guests enjoy their privacy.

The owner maintains the property quite well; making upgrades every fall to keep the experience not only refreshing and pleasant for the repeat guests, but for newcomers to Cayman Castle as well.

Stainless propane BBQ cooking center with granite top, central A/C, Keurig coffeemaker, (10) lounge chaises, WiFi DSL Internet access. AppleTVs, multiple flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth Indoor/Outdoor speaker. Plenty of off-street parking.

5BR Castle and 2BR Guesthouse accommodate 18 people (14 adults max.). 2BR Guesthouse offers a second private pool, extra kitchen and refrigerator, covered oceanfront verandah and additional parking.


(3) King Suites, (3) Queen Suites and a bunk-room with 2 twins and 2 fulls (no attached bathroom yet). The first floor Queen suite offers a private entrance with seating & TV area. Sleeper sofa in the second floor Queen Suite for small children only. 2 full-sized folding cribs provided gratis.
We do leave an Apple IMac for our guests to use in the Blue King Master Bedroom.

Cayman Castle sits on a 2 acre gated estate in "Gun Bay" in East End; adjacent to 6 acres of government land that includes the "Wreck of the 10 Sails" park and the East End Constable's residence & office. 2-3 lunch places are within walking distance and Tukka Restaurant is only a mile north. Two miles north are the 2 large resorts www.thereef.com and www.morritts.com where they maintain manicured beaches, pools, restaurants, bars and watersports. Those resorts are great places to entertain older kids and for anyone to spend the day.

The beach at the Castle is white sand and is quite private. We have three thatched palapas, 4 kayaks and 6 lounge chaises on the beach. Most folks will spend the day sunning around the pool; but we offer the beach option too. The water is more snorkeling than swimming here...it is a marine environment and we recommend pool shoes or fins. You can walk down our stairs on the point to sit down and put on your fins as well. We have a great snorkeling site straight out 200 yds from the castle...marked with a white PVC pole. You may also tie up the kayaks to that pole as well

 

Manager info

Grand Cayman Villas

About: Owner purchased the condemned hulk of a 2 story castle and 750' of shore in 2002 out of a foreclosure sale. Sold the last 200' of sandy beach to a friend and later sold another 100'; keeping 450' for the estate. Neither owner has built as yet, but he would like the neighbors!

Why Gun Bay, Cayman Islands:
The Castle is 24' above sea level and has a commanding 180 degree view of the east end reef, is within walking distance of the best dive shop in the Caribbean (2013) Ocean Frontiers; and had room to install a large infinity pool and 2BR guesthouse. Owner added a story to the Castle as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Unique privacy, space and views. The stone patio out on the point offers guests the opportunity to watch for shooting stars at night and observe the kite-boarders and dive boats during the day. Eagle Rays and even the Christmas Manta have been seen in front of the Castle in the shallows.
