Papaya Cottage (1 king suite & 1 queen suite) is directly ocean front and architecturally identical to the other 3 cottages surrounding it. Each floor plan opens to the sea with a pergola over the front porch that provides an elevated private outdoor lounging space for guests. The two en-suite bedrooms are in separate wings of the cottage for maximum privacy and offer direct access to the pergola/porch, as well as ocean-facing windows.
Each cottage has an ocean-facing vaulted great room encompassing the living, dining and kitchen areas. The professionally-decorated interiors are soothing and use modern materials. Each of the bathrooms is glass-tiled and offers luxury amenities. The king master suite includes a large jacuzzi bathtub and stand alone rain shower wall while the queen suite has a rain shower and European tub combination.
The kitchen is outfitted with stainless appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, electric range/oven and many small appliances. The kitchens are fully-stocked with plates, glassware, flatware and serving pieces. Each cottage also has a full washer/dryer, personal safe, WiFi and multiple TVs. Living room TV has cable TV service, while bedrooms are equipped with Apple TV only for streaming movies, Netflix, Hulu, etc.
We are usually 3 nights minimum, however during the low season the owner may consider shorter "staycation" options. Please inquire.

===ABOUT SEA ORCHARD RETREAT===
Sea Orchard Retreat is an intimate boutique oceanfront collection of fine cottages on the quiet north coast of Grand Cayman, only 10-15 minutes from 7 Mile Beach and all the resorts, water-sports, restaurants, nightlife and leisure activities the area has to offer. The shoppes of George Town & Camana Bay are also only a short drive away.
Sea Orchard Retreat offers 4 two bedroom stand-alone cottages, a large pool with heated spa, fitness center, studio, cabanas and oceanfront hammocks under the sea grapes. Airport greeting and transport is included. Famous Papagallo Restaurant is within walking distance and the new Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa is only 10 minutes by cab.
The property boasts 400 feet of natural shoreline and while it has a sandy beach that is raked periodically, our beach is on a reef-protected marine park and enjoys a vibrant snorkeling and kayaking experience. It is not a barefoot swimming beach and we offer guests both snorkeling equipment and complimentary water shoes. We are also only a 5 minute walk from Barkers Beach, an oceanfront nature conservancy where nesting turtles, birds, and other fauna are all protected.
