Coral Cottages Pink & Yellow consists of two brand new villas, full of Cayman character, nestled together right on the oceanfront in Old Man Bay. Each villa has a private oceanfront infinity pool and fantastic screened garden atrium. The vistas across the oceanfront and into the gardens are spectacularly framed, with the large picture windows and sliding doors highlighting the surrounding landscape.
From directly in front of the cottages, guests can shore dive (SCUBA) out to the reef wall where buoys mark two breathtaking wall dives. Just a couple of flipper strokes away is a splendid snorkeling rock, for the less adventurous. On land, tours of the spectacular Crystal Caves and fascinating Davinoff's Concrete Sculpture Garden are just a leisurely stroll away.
The cottages provide a wonderful haven within a quiet rural neighborhood with its pool size and convenient location being key attractions. The screened garden atrium, which provides for bug-free al fresco dining, is a rarity on the island and much appreciated by our guests.
The exclusive appeal of these homes, though, is the opportunity for larger groups of families, or friends, to vacation side-by-side yet maintain some secluded privacy under separate roofs. We often welcome groups of friends and multi-generational families who appreciate this unique arrangement. Alternatively, either cottage can be rented out separately as 3 bedroom, 3 bath villas.

Coral Cottages Pink & Yellow are semi-detatched oceanfront villas that each have their own oceanfront infinity pool and sunny deck in a sandy, palm fringed setting. There is a privacy screen between the villas with new landscaping and hedges between the pools.
The beach here is rugged, awash with centuries-old exquisite coral fossils, beautiful conch shells and gifts from mother nature as the waves lap the shore. Guests will want to wear pool shoes to walk, or swim fins in the water for foot protection. The water is teeming with life which is simply not present near a sterile sandy beach. You will find all types of sea creatures sheltering in and around the shallow reef close to shore.
These conditions make for excellent snorkeling, which is highly recommended—equipment can be obtained at the Silver Thatch welcome centre, if you do not have your own. Please look closely at the photos to see the multi-colored shallows: white/light blue is sandy bottom, browns indicate corals, and darker colors indicate sea grasses or soft corals. Old Man Bay is home to some of the best snorkeling on the entire island. Just about 300 yards east of Coral Cottages is Connally's Cove where local divemasters often come to snorkel.
As there are few homes in the area, the marine life here is less skittish and many coral heads provide sanctuary for juvenile fish. Our guests often just put a pool noodle under their arms and float for hours in this area observing the fish in only 3-6 feet of water with little, if any, current. Further out from shore are two famous dive sites on the reef wall, marked by buoys for the more adventurous.
