The Silver Thatch Membership offers a number of benefits and services including unlimited use of the Silver Thatch Fitness Centre, business centre, snorkel gear and discounts on restaurants, water sports, boat charters and more.
Castle Guesthouse is directly oceanfront on an elevated cliff. While it shares a two-acre gated lot and private beach with the larger Cayman Castle, it is quite private, tucked over 70 feet (more than the combined setbacks between most oceanfront neighbours) away from the Castle.
The Guesthouse boasts its own driveway, utilities, garage, satellite dish, grill, and freshwater pool. The Guesthouse's pool faces east, while the main Castle pool faces due south ensuring privacy among guests.
Cayman Castle and Guesthouse sit on a two-acre gated estate in Gun Bay in East End. Adjacent to six acres of government land that includes the Wreck of the 10 Sails park and the East End Constable's residence and office, guests are sure to have ample privacy during their stay.
The Castle Guesthouse is cliff-edged with no direct beach access, however, guests have access to the Castle beach just off the villa's driveway. We have a 250 foot stretch of beach...plenty to go around! The beach is shared by guests staying at the Castle & Guesthouse only. We have three thatched palapas, four kayaks and 9 lounge chaises on this beautiful white sandy beach.
The water here is more for snorkeling than swimming. There is a great snorkeling site, 200 yards straight out from the castle, marked with a white PVC pole. You may tie up the kayaks to that pole while snorkling. Since this is a marine environment we recommend guests wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection. If you want barefoot swimming, we sugegst visiting the two resorts mentioned below.
Two to three unch places are within walking distance and Tukka Restaurant is only a mile north. Two miles further north are the two large resorts (The Reef and Morritts) offering manicured beaches, pools, restaurants, bars and watersports. These resorts are great places to entertain older kids and for anyone to spend the day.
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.

A Beautiful Property with Disappointing Maintenance
The location and villa were both beautiful and impeccably clean. The small, private pool overlooks the ocean. The setting is very serene and romantic. However, the maintenance of the property left something to be desired. The private beach had so much potential but was overgrown with grass that contained prickly grass burrs and littered with trash that had washed up from the ocean. A little extra grounds maintenance would have gone a long way here. There was also no hot water in the shower in the master bathroom. The service provided by the person who greeted us seemed unmotivated - going through the motions. There were quite a few conveniences available to use/borrow which was very nice. The housekeeping staff was super friendly and helpful when we asked for help getting a blender; and as I said early, the house was perfectly clean when we arrived. All in all, I would recommend the property with the caveat that the beach may be disappointing.
