Welcome to On The Rocks! This grand oceanfront gated estate with private pool is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport in a planned residential community called Beach Bay. The dozen or so larger homes along this rugged coastline share the key amenity of the neighborhood: a wonderful sandy beach and cove with protected swimming and excellent snorkeling (a four to five-minute walk). While each villa offers panoramic elevated views and privacy, each has access to the sandy white beach. Our guests report seeing lobster, octopus and teeming juvenile fish on the coral heads.
The main six-bedroom villa features a wrap-around porch that offers a full-day respite from the Caribbean sun plus shaded areas for enjoying a good read, morning yoga sessions, breakfast, or sunset viewings. With heavy landscaping on both sides of the property, On the Rocks provides guests with privacy and quiet during their stay. The large freshwater pool has a wide sundeck with lounge chaises as well as a cabana for outdoor dining. A zoysia grass lawn feels cool on bare feet and the estate has many mature palm trees to offer additional shade.
Outdoor dining tables include a six-top near the house and a four-top in the pool cabana. There are six lounge chaises around the pool deck and two chaises on the master suite balcony. An outdoor sectional sofa is shaded by the covered veranda.
Architecturally, the design and flow of the house are low-country plantation-style with transom windows, a wrap-around porch, window shutters, and a central living room opening to the pool area. There is an enormous parking area and access to the garage.
On The Rocks estate is on an elevated rocky bluff overlooking the Caribbean Sea. In the evening it is not unusual to see cruise ships passing by on their way back to Jamaica or the USA. We have great panoramic views, however, you would not enter the beach from the rear of the house.
This executive residential development of "Beach Bay" has about 12 homes like On The Rocks that all share a communal sandy beach cove with protected snorkeling just 400 yards east of the villa (3-minute walk). Parking is offered if you prefer to drive. The owner has six beach chairs for you to use and if you need more, please ask the manager.
The beach offers a sandy entry into the water and multiple palm trees provide shade--no need to take an umbrella! As this is still a marine environment, we recommend either swim fins or stretchy water shoes to protect the feet from sharp shell shards, broken urchin spines, etc. The water is clear, and the bottom is sandy, but we still err on the side of caution.
General Grand Cayman Beach Notes
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high watermark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.
Ocean Debris and 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 in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. The owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. We try our best to work around mother nature.
