Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday bungalow in Little Cayman - Bloody Bay Bungalow
If you are looking for relaxing, quiet seclusion with complete privacy, you have found the right place. Nestled in the heart of the world famous Bloody Bay Marine Park, this is the ONLY house on over 2 miles of tranquil beach. Perched 10 feet above the sand and less than 350 yards from some of the most famous dive sites in the world, enjoy spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea looking north towards Cuba. Yet despite all the privacy- the grocery store, several resorts, bars, and restaurants are only a short 10 minute bicycle ride away.
The charmingly simple bungalow offers the absolute best of Caribbean seafront living. The open air living area boasts 22 screened windows and 3 sets of double glass doors along with 2 large ceiling fans to allow the soft tropical breezes to carry your stresses away. Along with the comfortable seating area, bar seating for 8 surrounds the simple yet very functional kitchen that includes 2 small refrigerators, a microwave, ice maker, coffee maker, and 2 induction cooktops. You won’t be distracted with cable or satellite TV here, but if you absolutely can’t take being “unplugged” on your vacation, there is wireless internet throughout the entire house.
The living area opens to a 300 square foot sun deck complete with grill and breakfast table, and walkways that lead to two independent very private bedrooms that we have named “Sunrise” and “Sunset”, because one sits to the east of the living area, and one sits to the west. Each bedroom has a small half bath, ceiling fan and a queen size 4 poster bed. Nine screened windows allow you to fully enjoy the sea breeze and the soothing sound of the surf. There is also a window AC unit in each bedroom, although we have honestly never had to turn them on.
Follow the stairs down to the ground level and the wooden walkways will lead to a 600 square foot shaded (4) hammock deck, a full bathroom with indoor shower, as well as a private outdoor shower around back.
To the west of the deck is the largest bathouse in the Cayman Islands and quite possibly the entire Caribbean. It is home to a growing colony of 500-1000 Velvety Free Tail bats, the only mammal native to the Cayman Islands. Each dusk they pour out in waves to patrol the evening skies and hunt for insects, of which they can eat up to 2000 apiece! That’s 1 to 2 million per night! Unfortunately they can’t catch every single one on the island so bring your bug spray just in case, because on very still evenings the no-see-ums have been known to come out in force!
