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 2 hospitality staff, available to help with all 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
We have stayed in 7MB and West Bay on previous trips and were looking to explore more of the island and be off the beaten path. This was absolutely perfect. The house is gorgeous, truly there isn't a "bad room," they're all wonderfully decorated and appointed. The views off the balcony and sitting out in the loungers are absolutely unbeatable. We had some wonderful days just hanging out at the house, paddleboarding, kayaking, floating, playing pool and ring toss game and reading and just enjoying being together in such a beautiful place. Truly a perfectly relaxing and luxurious spot. The staff is wonderful and having them there means it's not a typical "mom vacation," where mom spends the whole vacation doing dishes and laundry in proximity to the ocean.
The bay right out front is awesome. We saw so many fish and birds and, while floating around on the inflatables, an octopus! At night, there is a bioluminescent light show in the water at the end of the dock. Go watch, it's magical.
Lighthouse Restaurant was wonderful. The SouthCoast Grill is closer to the house, and has great views, but the food is just fine, not great. Rum Point is easy to get to and a lot of fun for the kids. Skip Starfish point, it's like lauderdale and there are only a few starfish because humans haven't been respectful enough. Botanic Gardens are beautiful (just be aware that wild dogs have eaten all the blue iguanas and the survivors are in their recovery center, so if you want to see them, book a tour of the iguana center, they're not in the wild night now.) It's more of a trek to get to the beaches at 7 mile, but totally doable and an easy drive (once you get used to being on the left).
If you stay here, preorder groceries from Kirk Market. In addition to groceries, we had a sandwich platter delivered from their deli and it was great to have them waiting when we arrived. We also had a cheese and cracker and fruit platter from them, kept it in the downstairs fridge, and brought it out nosh on for days while we hung around down by the water and in the loungers, it was perfect.
Can wholeheartedly recommend this house!
This house was amazing and perfect for our group of 11. We had 6 adults and 5 teenagers and were a little reluctant to rent the house because it is located 20-30 minutes from seven mile beach and the busier part of the island. This turned out not to be a problem at all and we actually loved the location of this house. We rented 2 cars and, apart from having to adjust to driving on the left side of the road, driving around the island was fine. Our kids got certified to dive through Epic and the staff was wonderful. I was able to snorkel above the kids while they did their check out dives which was great for me to see. We were all able to dive together later in the week and had a fantastic time. Evadney and Stacy were wonderful to us and we enjoyed the beautiful fruit platters and jerk chicken they prepared. The house had every single item we needed and it was great to learn that you can order groceries and drinks to be delivered to the house before we arrived! We swam everyday in the bay - we wore the water shoes and had so much fun snorkeling and exploring all of the sea life right outside the door. We saw lion fish, lobsters, and octopus to name a few. We paddle boarded down to another beach and kayaked. All of the beach equipment that is provided certainly adds to the experience.( It is expensive to rent these items on your own. ) We hope to return to this beautiful piece of paradise in the future! Bryan was so pleasant to work with and he provided great details on the house and area that made our arrival and getting to the house very easy. Thank you Bryan for everything!
The house was huge and always very clean and we had a large group of teenagers. The house staff were amazing and very helpful. We had a small issue with the hot water heater not working but was taken care of very quickly within a few hours the same day. Must see/do things on the island: Rum point, rum tour, star fish point, string ray city, and dinner at Tukka's restaurant and bar (just down the road). Would recommend this house to anyone.
As the pictures show, the home is beautiful and provided the stress free, relax, no worries feeling we wanted on vacation! We spent much time sitting on the dock watching all the sea life and drinking rum punch! We were a group of 16. I wouldn't recommend swimming from the dock ( we went to 7 mile beach and starfish bay to swim), but we're able to sit on the floating island, kayak, paddle board, and snorkel.
Everything was wonderful on our trip last week! We had a family group of 16 and had plenty of room to enjoy this beautiful home. Everything was better than expected. Evedney and Stacy were great help and prepared delicious meals for us during our stay. We would love to make a return trip.
A wonderful home for a large family or large group! Literally, there is no bad room in the house as each of the 8 bedrooms are well decorated and have beautiful views of the ocean! Brian is wonderful and very responsive to any questions or requests. And Evadney is as sweet as can be! I'm so happy we found this property to stay for 5 nights! .. and you will be too!
