About the property

8 BR/9 BA Beachfront House, With Private Beach, Sleeps 20

Your own private beachfront paradise, Southern Ayr is a beautifully renovated multi-level house with 200 feet of private white-sand beach and spectacular views from all floors. Situated on south-facing Breakers on Grand Cayman and away from the busy crowds of Seven-Mile Beach and George Town, this amazing property offers spacious accommodation for up to 20 guests - ideal for large groups of travelers, including family gatherings or company events.

This house comes complete with friendly service from hospitality staff, available to help with cooking, cleaning, laundry, turndown service, general assistance - and even waitress service as you relax on the lounge-chairs on the private beach or dock. Babysitting services are also available from these trusted hospitality staff.

Please note that while the hospitality staff are able to help prepare basic meals for your group, they are not professional chefs. If you require help with more complex meals or are looking for restaurant quality dishes, then we would be happy to recommend the chef-for-hire services offered by the Lighthouse Restaurant (website is lighthouse.ky), which is less than half-a-mile away. There are also several other private chefs available for hire on the island. Please note that the costs for these outside chef services (Lighthouse or other) are not included in your rental, and you would need to arrange them separately.

The private beach allows for as much sunning time as you can handle, with 20 comfortable lounge chairs and several umbrellas available for your group to use on the beach or on the dock. If you prefer to relax in the shallow waters, then the property comes with 2 large floating loungers, providing comfortable seating for 12. If you need a rest from the sun the you can escape to the outdoor living area with large seating areas, pool table, ping-pong, and a BBQ grill. We also provide two 2-person kayaks and 3 stand-up paddleboards for exploring the bay. Additional paddleboard and kayak rentals can be arranged in advance and made ready for your group's arrival.

Inside the house, all bedrooms are tastefully outfitted, with comfortable sleeping and high-quality linens for all guests. The 3 master suites have king beds, and all 8 bedrooms have their own flat-screen TV, as does the family room. The balconies provide spectacular views of the Caribbean Ocean, and are a wonderful place to start your day with a coffee or breakfast freshly prepared by the staff.

Southern Ayr is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport, 25 minutes from GeorgeTown/Seven-Mile-Beach, and 20 minutes from Rum Point and East End. A rental car is recommended, but transportation services are available for those guests not wishing to drive, including drivers with large vans/minibuses for larger groups. Additional fee services are also available for grocery shopping, boating trips and tours, giving groups the opportunity to relax for the entirety of their trip.

About Brian Daly

After growing up in Scotland and Alabama respectively, we have been happy to call Chicago home since 2003 - except in the winter time when we are even happier to call Cayman our second home!

Brian Daly purchased this house in 2014

Why Brian Daly chose Bodden Town

The views are simply spectacular! We fell in love with this house the first time we drove past it, and spent many months developing it into the 8-bedroom house that it now is, and that we know will bring as much pleasure to our guests as it does to us.

What makes this house unique

After experiencing all the benefits of condo life on Seven Mile Beach, we find this house to be a delightful change of scenery and pace - a true island paradise.

Has potential but hasn’t been maintained

  • 3 of 5

The house appears to have not been maintained very well. We had 20 people, so we filled the house. We had hoped to make use the outdoor living area due to our large numbers. However, the furniture was not in good repair. The chairs on the dock shown in the pictures are now trash on the edge of the property. The paddle boards are in poor shape and missing most of their fins. The ice maker barely worked. Some of the TVs did not work. The house is located on the main road near a quarry, so traffic noise started around 6 am. The bedrooms were nice, especially the king sized ones. Be aware that the loft bedroom has no door. I feel if the above issues were addressed it would be a very nice house. The Czech Inn 5 minutes up the road serve excellent food.

Great House for a large family!

Little slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5

We had seven couples and a single- plenty of room for all. The location was fantastic since we wanted something a way from the 7 Mile Beach bustle. The view from the house is a dream- turquoise water, rolling waves, and great sunsets. Shopping was only a 10 minute drive, and there's a couple of restaurants within walking distance. One (The Lighthouse), was extraordinary!

The housekeeper did a fantastic job of making us feel at home, taking care of the rooms and kitchen- even preparing a fantastic island meal for us. The house has a wonderful shaded area for relaxing, a small living room with fantastic views, two dining tables for meals, games, and conversation, lots of sun chairs, a wonderful dock, and there is great assortment of water sports toys (which got a lot of use). The owner is a great communicator and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.

The snorkeling right off the house is a shallow area with grass- there's better snorkeling a short kayak ride away. The only negatives were a few minor maintenance issues and worn mattresses- but overall this is a bucket-list property if you have a large group and want to enjoy uncrowded Cayman.

A wonderful site on Bodden Town lagoon with fantastic accommodations

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and easily slept our 18 guests. The furnishings are fairly new and were extremely comfortable, with lots of nice amenities. Kitchen was well supplied and open and airy. There were many accessories for watersports and outdoor activities, with easy access to a beautiful lagoon with amazing wildlife. Aside from a temporary interruption of internet service (beyond control of the managers), the only drawback was a tricky vehicle parking situation because of the busy traffic on the road. Overall, this was a slice of paradise!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The property has a great location, midway between George Town and Rum Point or East End. It is very comfortable and well equipped. It is a great place to hang out and do outdoor activities. The staff do a great job and are very helpful.

The downstairs refrigerator and kitchenette was very handy when we were out at the beach area.
