Beach Notes

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef-protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky iron shore with natural rock formations.

The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as the swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection—either pool shoes or fins.

The prevailing trade winds from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch. 

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many water sports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar, and marina

Lastly, there are 2 large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches plus restaurants, a grocery store, a liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop.

These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools, and bar service. Tortuga Divers and White Sand Water Sports offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Crown owns up to the high water mark.

The shoreline quality behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website due to shifting tides and weather patterns. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally.

Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency over the years during the summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation.

We try our best to work around mother nature.

amazing views, comfortable home - would stay here again!

Review by Bernadette on 07/29/2023

We chose this home because it was ocean front, had its own pool, and space for our entire family (2 adults, 3 kids) and it didn't disappoint! It was so easy to walk right into the ocean from the beach out back, there's a lot of sharp rock in the area and we could tell it had been groomed to make it safer. The pool was great, relaxing, and had lots of pool toys to choose from. The primary bathroom has been redone, so it's nicer than in the photos, and we felt really comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, which isn't always the case, and had plenty of dishes/pots/pans/etc. I enjoyed having a laundry room to wash swimsuits and towels partway through the week! Beach towels were provided, so helpful, and an outdoor rinse shower was very convenient. This side of the island is quiet, there wasn't much traffic, which we liked. Nearby Kaibo Beach restaurant was delicious! We had one issue with plumbing which the property manager addressed promptly on Sunday. My only slight complaint was the water doesn't get very warm in the shower but since the island is warm I didn't really mind too much. We also added the provided mattress topper to the primary bed and that helped. Overall I would definitely stay here again if we were to return to the island!

Thatch Hill is a very nice, quiet, well equipped villa on the north side near rim point. House has updated kitchen appliances, 2 full baths, w/d, pretty much everything you need. But let’s be honest, you are here for the views, the privacy, the ocean breeze and the private pool. Thatch Hill delivers on all and then some. You can’t beat the awesome sun rises, sitting by the pool and just having total relaxation. My wife and I rented for a week and on most days barely saw anyone around. It will be interesting to see what floor plan the lot under construction builds. If a two story, could infringe on some of the privacy. For our week construction workers that were on site didn’t interfere and it wasn’t very noisy at all. 20 min walk to kaibo/star fish point, 5 mins or so to rum point. I would very much look forward to renting this villa again. When checking in, property manager has snorkeling gear, blue tooth speaker, Apple TV, coolers, among other things to use during your stay at no charge. Awesome and friendly staff! Thank you all for a fantastic vacation week!

Family Stay at Thatch Hill - February 2023

My family absolutely loved our visit. The property was clean, the pool and views are 2nd to none that we\'ve ever stayed at. We especially liked the layout which has the kitchen/living separating the bedrooms. Our kids (16, 14, 11, 4, 2) had the time of their lives and we recommend staying here. The Point/Kaibo are just down the road (walkable or a 3-5 minute drive). Oh and the hosts/services were fantastic as well.

We were a party of 4 adults & Thatch Hill was the perfect house for us. Just the right size for 2 couples. We had no problems with the property so we never had to contact the manager. The beach & water access was the best around. Snorkeling out to the reef in front of the house was beautiful. The pool was a nice amenity & very clean. We enjoyed dinner at both Kaibo & the Rare Rum Bar for a more upscale dinner. Both were delicious the nights we dined Our trip was fantastic & Thatch Hill was perfect for us.

Lovely Home!

We really enjoyed this small, lovely home on the water during our stay in Cayman. The snorkeling right in front of the house is fabulous, the pool is clean and well maintained, and the kitchen well equipped. We’d recommend this as a rental to a family.

Wonderful stay!

We had an amazing stay at Thatch Hill this past summer. It was so relaxing with incredible ocean views while sitting on the screened patio and watching kids swim in the pool. It was quiet and felt like we had the island to ourselves. Very quick drive to Kaibo and starfish point. Would definitely recommend and will stay again. The management was also very helpful and responsive to any questions and recommendations. I highly recommend the Catamaran tour with Warren. He was so kind and engaging with our kids and made the trip extra special!

great time staying at this beautiful property

Review by Kelly on 08/04/2022

Our family had a great time staying at this beautiful property! Each day, we snorkeled right outside the house and enjoyed all of the marine life! We saw eels, rays, many fish and on the last day we snorkeled over closer to Rum Point and saw a six foot nurse shark! We have traveled many places and this, by far, was the safest and most fun snorkeling. The house was great and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay! We mainly hung out at the house enjoying the pool and snorkeling but also took a charter out to stingray city, visited starfish point and the botanical gardens. Hurley’s was the best store for purchasing groceries. Highly recommend!

Incredible Cayman Vacation

Review by JW on 05/08/2022

Immaculate and well stocked villa just a short walk from Rum Point. Very comfortably sized for our family of four and a great location, we snorkeled with Stingrays just off the beach! Recommend a rental car for your stay so you can access the grocery store a few miles away. This was one of my favorite Caribbean vacations.

We love this house!

This was our third stay in this house, and we love it every time! The remodel is beautiful and made the kitchen so much easier to navigate. Only down side was no place to put groceries, with all of the miscellaneous unnecessary stuff in the cabinets. The pool and patio areas are fantastic, and the view is absolutely breathtaking from every part of the house. We are already planning on rebooking for next year.

Didn’t Want to Leave

Thatch Hill is our new favorite place to stay at Rum Point. The perfect size for a smaller family, the house has everything you could want for your vacation in paradise. The pool was amazing as were the views. The house was clean, comfortable, and modern. We will be back!

Thatch Hill!

Review by Taryn on 03/12/2022

Beautiful location! Snorkeling out from Thatch Hill is a must do! Our family made it all the way out to the reef (with pool noodles, but I\'d suggest renting lifejackets!). The North side of the island can definitely be windy. We enjoyed eating at the nearby Kaibo Club & driving to the East end for other restaurant selections. Thatch Hill had about everything we needed, even fun pool floats and sand toys. Beds were pretty comfy and there were plenty of beach towels. Great first trip to Cayman!

Very Nice Staycation / Quarantine

Review by L.D. on 09/30/2021
5 out of 5
We had a great stay at Thatch Hill. It has been a perfect location for us to quarantine. It was very comfortable and clean with more than enough supplies and amenities for a wonderful stay. The laundry area, with large washer and dryer, is particularly helpful. The pool is great and of course the views are so amazing. The outdoor screened in living area was wonderful for lounging and also for meals at the outdoor dining area. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay.

Perfect Beach House

Review by Mandy on 10/12/2020
5 out of 5
Our holiday at Thatch Hill was even better then we expected! The house is so lovely. Our first impression was it’s very clean and bigger then we thought it would be. The view when you walk in the front door is stunning, just like the feature photo on the website listing. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances and everything we needed to cook or BBQ everyday. We spent most of our time outside in the pool and on the beach. The white sand is just like having a private piece of 7 mile. There is some iron shore and turtle grass when you’re entering the water but that’s to be expected most places in Cayman. We rented a a tandem kayak which was waiting for us when we arrived. Thatch Hill is a great location to have one as it is just a short paddle to rum point and back. We live on island and the privacy of the property made for a perfect staycation. Scott and Judy were both very accommodating with our special requests. Thank you so much! I’ll be recommending Grand Cayman Villas to my friends and family when they come to visit us in Cayman.

Ringing in the new year

Review by Patti on 12/29/2018

Normally we (2 couples) spend New Years week in the Keys. We wanted to try a new destination especially with sand and surf. The place was perfect! I liked the separation of the two bedrooms with in-suite bathrooms by the common area and kitchen. View was wonderful and pool too. Beds and linens and towels very comfortable and nice. So quiet except for the lull of the waves. All in all we had a beautiful stay at Thatch Hill.

Wonderful Beach Cottage

Review by John on 11/29/2018

So glad we made the decision to rent Thatch Hill for our 5 day Cayman vacation! From what we could see, Thatch Hill has one of the nicest beaches on that part of the island. That along with the private pool provide a perfect outside experience. Snorkeling out from the house was very nice even with some of the wind we experienced. On the inside, Thatch Hill is one of the better equipped units we have rented. Everything was in great shape with new towels and linens a plus. We only met with the property manager briefly on the 3rd day when she finally caught us but other than that we didn\'t need any assistance. Pool guy came by one day and was a perfect gentleman. We would highly recommend Thatch Hill to any couple or couple with kids that would enjoy a beach cottage vacation. We are planning to return!

Thatch Hill

Review by Sharon on 03/31/2018

Enjoyed our stay at Thatch Hill. Scott helped with my booking. Scott was great and the process was easy. Thatch Hill is a quaint house. The house was well maintained and had the essentials. We did not need the manager, however, she did stop by to introduce herself. Very nice touch. We very much enjoyed the people of the Caymans. They were warm and genuine. We have been to other Caribbean islands and this is not always the case. We are family of kiteboarders. While I realize we arrived at the tail end of windy season, this was spring break for our children. The wind did not cooperate. When not windy, we snorkel and we snorkeled much that week. There some great spots on the island and easy to access. Other than seven mile beach, the beaches of the north and east end are rocky and require booties. I didn’t see this fact in reviews before booking the trip. We stayed in the North end, closer to Kiteboarding spot. Therefore, probably would have not changed our location. Pictures of the Grand Cayman beaches are probably mostly taken on the west side of the island. Perhaps this may help another kiteboard family. If so, be prepared to drive a good distance to the east end. Lastly, the silver thatch discount card did not work for any of our excursions booked through white sands. Not sure it is worth $500.00 charge. I think that is what I was charged for silver thatch membership. Excuse me if I am wrong.
Manager Response:

Hi Sharon,

So glad you had a memorable stay on Grand Cayman. Also, sorry wind conditions had calmed down - impossible to predict Mother Nature. I was on the island the last 2 weeks of April, the first week was windy with kiteboarders everywhere, the second week was flat.

The beaches at Rum Point and The Wyndham/Morritts are barefoot beaches with barefoot swimming. 

Silver Thatch benefits include accidental damage protection (a $69-99 value), fitness center access, business center access, $100 charter discount to Stingray sandbar (Silver Thatch Charters), discounts to local vendors (White Sand is a preferred vendor - you should have received a 10% discount - wish you had contacted me), free use of high quality Scubapro snorkel gear (normally rents for $40-50 per day per person), baby items, Bluetooth speakers, Apple TV, discounts to everything at Rum Point Club and several other restaurants, and much more. You were charged $395.50 for the service fee.

Please come back again and I will make sure you receive the full use of the Silver Thatch benefits. 

Thank you,

Scott Naurath

We visited Grand Cayman for the second time - first was on a cruise. Our family absolutely loved the home, the pool, the location and the entire island. We always felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bedrooms were large and plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with what we needed. We highly recommend Thatch Hill and will return.


Review by Caroline on 12/15/2017

Thatch Hill was great! Clean, all the necessities, quiet location, wonderful view, etc! Scott and Judy were extremely helpful with any and everything we needed before our travel as well as when we were there. The home has a great island feel and has everything in the kitchen that will make you feel at home. The pool was kept very clean and the kids had a blast. Our family (5 year old boy and 7 year old girl) always like to have a private home w/ a pool when we travel so we are never constrained with swimming and \"loud family fun times!\" And this was yet another vacation that did not disappoint! One thing to consider is that being this close to the ocean is that it was a tad windy but prevented us from getting too hot. Also, the beach at the bottom of the stairs (off the pool) is wonderful and has clean sand where the kids, and even adults, can play. The closer you get to the ocean is does get rocky. I even managed to cut my foot within the first 10 minutes we were there. Learned my lesson:) We still managed to get in the ocean and had a great time. It\'s a very short drive to Rum Point where there is some great things to do. If considering Thatch Hill for your family, we would highly recommend it. Definitely wonderful!!!! We already miss it!

A great 9 days in Thatch Hill villa

Review by Sigurd on 12/01/2017

  My wife and I have been fortunate to stay in many different rental homes in various locations. No matter how great the house, there always seems to be a few things that are disappointing.................not with Thatch Hill. First, the location and the view are spectacular! The swimming pool leads down to your private beach and into the ocean. Entry into the ocean is a little tricky, but doable. The snorkeling out front was the best we experienced all week. Inside, the beds were comfortable, water pressure was great, plenty of hot water for showers. The kitchen was very nice with everything you would need for preparing meals at home. The TV looked to be about 55\', Samsung High Definition with a great cable package included. Along with the TV you have a Bluetooth DVD player if you want to watch movies. The pool is very large with a nice surrounding pool deck with plenty of reclining lounge chairs. There is also a nice screened in porch with a table and a few chairs if you want to stay out of the sun. With thick vegetation on both sides of the house, privacy is never an issue. In conclusion, Thatch Hill was everything you could possible want in a comfortable beach house. For one or two couples, in this price range, it would be hard to find a better rental home.
