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 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.

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.

Fantastic Home!!!

  • 4 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our extended family of 17 to spend our vacation. There were three bedrooms on the main level, so that the grandparents would not have to navigate steps, three on the lower level, and one each on the second and third levels, so everyone was able to have their own space and we weren't directly on top of each other. Room on the 3rd floor does not have an en suite. A half bath is on the 2nd level, or full on the main level for this bedroom. Home was extensively remodeled approximately 4 years ago, so everything was up-to-date.

We literally had no neighbors on the ocean side, due to it's location in a cove. One day we went to 7 Mile Beach and it felt so crowded after the peacefulness of our private beach. The location on the south shore just east of Bodden Town gave us a good starting place to explore the island, with everything within a 15-45 minute drive. You will need a car, but the island is easy to navigate once you get used to driving on the left side of the road.

My only complaint is about the housekeeping staff that the owners hired to come in every day. At first it seemed wonderful...there was coffee every morning and they would tidy up after us. Very quickly, however, we began to feel uncomfortable with having them around, as they were territorial about having us in their space. We ended up only having them come in as little as possible, and not at all for a few days. Upon returning home, I spoke with the owner, who assured us that this was the first criticism that he had heard and would deal with it promptly so that no others would have a similar experience.

Overall I would recommend this home and location to anyone. The house was fantastic and we LOVED the Cayman Islands.

Beautiful home. Brian was very forthcoming with things to do and the house had all we could ask for. We will definitely have to go back.

Wonderful Family trip in Breakers at Southern Ayr

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering here for a week and it was wonderful!!! The house had everything...beach towels and linens were plentiful. The watersports were abundant also. We had Evadney cook 3 dinners for us...she was amazing! The AC was powerful...and free WiFi! The price was very reasonable considering the size of the house. Any issues were dealt with immediately. We would not hesitate to come back here when we return to Cayman!

Great Getaway location

  • 4 of 5

We were there the week of April 22-29, 2017. There were 12 of us in total. All bedrooms/bathrooms were in good condition. The staff did a lovely job looking after us and made meals for us every day we needed them to. They even decorated the house for us so we could throw a small engagement party for my son and future daughter in law. I wouldn't recommend swimming at this location as there are lots of sea urchins in the bay and it is quite rocky. There are kayaks and paddle boards for your use, life jackets and swim shoes, etc. You will have to rent cars/vans for this home as most excursions will not come out that far to retrieve you. We went to Stingray City, Spotts Beach, Grand Cayman, Starfish point, rum point.

We Thoroughly Enjoyed Southern Ayr

  • 5 of 5

Most of the reviews before us tell you everything about how wonderful the home and staff are (and we can affirm all the positive comments), so we will focus on things that will make your stay even better.

It was great to have Evadney and Yvonne there. Evadney came daily at 8:30 (Yvonne's hours varied). We would tell her the night before what we wanted for our 9:30 am breakfast. She would set the table for us with breakfast each morning—nice to be spoiled in that way. We took the dishes to the sink for them after meals then they would wash them. We made our own lunches and dinners or had them assist with things on the menu. They made Jerk Chicken 1 night and fresh fish, homemade potato salad, beans and rice for us on another. Both were delicious. During the day they did a nice job of making the beds and tidying the home. Each room has a hamper. They washed for us on 2 days. The staff left at 5.

The entrance to the ocean is rocky. The only way to enter the shallow and warm water is from the stairs at the end of the dock. You will need water shoes in the water. They have a lot at the house, but if you wear size 12 or higher bring your own. We spent a lot of time on the kayaks, stand-up paddle-boards and using the provided snorkels. We found four hidden treasures just to the right of the house (when looking at the ocean) about 30 yards or less from shore and about even with the big piece of driftwood on the shore. When in the kayak or on the paddle board the treasures look like patches of turtle grass, but put on your snorkel and you hundreds of colorful fish--hard to find but worth looking for. The area in front of the house is not a great swimming area. Nice public beaches are within a 5-minute car ride.

There are 2 restaurants close to the house with good food that you can walk to for lunch or dinner. The small and unpretentious Czech Inn Grill is a short drive from the house and has some of the best food on the island. GO THERE, Best menu items-goulash, schnitzel, hamburger, snapper and Greek salad.

Bring blue tooth speakers if you enjoy music. Groceries are expensive there. We did bring in some of our own liquor and food--worked well. Duty Free liquors are VERY reasonably priced on DEPARTURE so save luggage space.

We left a kiddie pool that the kids used so please enjoy.

Floor plan: TOP 1Q; 2ND Master 1K; MAIN 1K, 1K, 2Q; Ground 2Q, J&J and Hideaway

The house was perfect for us, the kitchen saved $, the staff let us relax.
