Cozy Cayman Beach Front Cottage - Emerald Sea House

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,400 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

This cozy cottage is styled in classic Cayman architecture and located as far away from the glitz, crowds and night life of the 7-mile beach area as you can get on Grand Cayman. This newly listed/renovated get-a-way cottage contains 2 bedrooms (both with king size beds) and private bathrooms. Each independently air conditioned bedroom has a full view of the ocean. Imagine waking up and watching the sun rise from your bed! The great room also has two expansive views of the ocean where you can sit and watch the ocean landscape or read one the more than 50 books available (mostly spy and suspense novels). The fully equipped kitchen can handle anything you would like to dish out and includes a full size refrigerator, stove, oven and microwave. A cooler is provided for trips to the grocery store or for bringing your fresh catch home. A charcoal grill is also available if grilling your fresh catch is your style.

This is an ocean front property, not an ocean or marina view. Even on the hottest days, the northeasterly breeze will keep you cool. The snorkeling is excellent right in your backyard. Whenever the mood strikes, head out to your own snorkel heaven. Lots of reef fish, conch, lobster, crabs and coral formations (stag horn and brain coral) are yours to explore. On a calm day, if you go beyond the barrier reef, you could encounter just about anything.

Rental includes the use of two single seat kayaks, four lounge chairs, outdoor tables, life jackets, charcoal grill, and Wifi.

From this location, it is a short drive to Rum Point or Kaibo Yacht Club were you can enjoy a selection of very unique dining experiences (i.e., bare feet in the sand to fine dining) or charter a boat for fishing, diving or a visit to Sting Ray City. If conditions permit, experiencing bioluminescence bay by kayak is a must do. While in Grand Cayman, you have to get in the water at least once with the sting rays at Sting Ray City. Sting Ray City at sunrise is magical! If your interested in scuba diving, the best diving in Grand Cayman is with Ocean Frontiers (my opinion) just 30 minutes down the road on the East end.

Still wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Rick and Maureen's house and everything is still perfect. The location and house are wonderful for snorkeling, kayaking and beach walking without the crowds. Amazing snorkeling right from the private beach and an easy drive to anywhere you want to go. A/C, wifi are strong and the kitchen is well appointed. The house is always immaculate upon arrival. Rick is always available for any questions. Still recommend highly!

Lovely Beachfront Home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for two couples visiting the island for the first time. Snorkeling right out front was great. Home was nicely decorated, beds and bedding felt wonderful, fluffy new towels provided for bathroom & beach. Weber BBQ was a nice added touch. Both sunrise and sunset provided beautiful pictures and memories. Loved that we were on the quiet side of the island but still so close to many great things. Snorkeling @ Cayman Kai Beach, Crystal Caves, Botanical Gardens & Blue Iguana breeding program were wonderful, Tukka restaurant had an awesome happy hour (feeding tarpon & frigates!). The front door lock was tricky (spent way too much time trying to get it locked). Nice, super clean place with a beautiful view and great quiet location! Loved it from start to finish.

Great Two Bedroom on the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and charming two bedroom house with all rooms having a great ocean view. Granite counter tops throughout, rain head showers and nicely furnished. Lots of outdoor seating all along the ocean side. We enjoyed nightly cocktails while listening to the surf. Close to Rum Point with great snorkeling and beaches. Great food choices on this side of the island as well although the kitchen is well stocked if you choose to cook. We loved our stay!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so much better than expected. It was immaculate, updated, light and bright with unbelievable ocean views, cheerfully decorated with a very well equipped kitchen. We loved sitting out on the wrap around deck just enjoying the gorgeous ocean view. The location was exactly what we wanted- quiet and peaceful away from the crowds. Beautiful, private beach with amazing snorkeling right outside the door and we loved using the kayaks that were so thoughtfully provided. Owner responded to any questions within minutes. This is truly one of the best VRBOs we've ever stayed in.
