The Papaya Cottage is part of the Sea Orchard Retreat. Guests staying in the Papaya Cottage have access to all the amenities and services provided by Membership. More Information below.
Papaya Cottage is a two-bedroom oceanfront home in West Bay at the northern tip of Cayman's western peninsula. Architecturally identical to the other three cottages surrounding it, this cozy getaway can sleep five guests, four adults max.
Each floor plan opens to the sea with a pergola extending over the front porch creating an elevated lounging perch with ocean views. The bedroom suites sit on opposite wings of the cottage with direct access to the front porch.
Each cottage features a vaulted great room with ocean views encompassing the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The professionally-decorated interiors combine soothing hues, natural textures, and modern materials to evoke an updated island vibe.
The kitchen is outfitted with stainless appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, electric range, and modern appliances. The kitchens are fully stocked with plates, glassware, flatware, and serving pieces. A family dining table sits adjacent to the kitchen with seating for all.
The living area is punctuated with a colourful accent wall mounted with a flat-screen TV. The ocean views also make quite the statement. Each cottage is also equipped with a full washer and dryer, personal safe, and wifi.
Sea Orchard Retreat is a gated oceanfront boutique resort with 4 private well-decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bath villas surrounding an oceanfront pool and spa. The actual beach here is sandy, however, the shoreline can be pebbly and rocky as one enters the water to snorkel. Our guests will use kayaks to access the shallow snorkeling reef and coral heads.
Sea Orchard Retreat is less than 10 minutes from the barefoot swimming on 7 Mile Beach as well as all the restaurants, resorts, and watersports offered.
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.

SEA ORCHARD RETREAT
Sea Orchard Retreat is a boutique gated resort of oceanfront cottages on the quiet north coast of West Bay in beautiful Grand Cayman. Located just 10 minutes from Seven Mile Beach, guests can enjoy all the resorts, water-sports, restaurants and leisure activities the area has to offer. The shops of George Town & Camana Bay are also only a short drive away. Airport transport comes included with your stay* (restrictions apply below).
The resort consists of four individual 2-bedroom cottages, a large resort pool with heated spa and cabanas, a fitness center, and seaside hammocks under sea grape trees.
With 400 feet of natural shoreline perched on a reef-protected marine park, guests can enjoy a vibrant snorkeling experience or kayaking adventure. While it has a sandy beach, that is raked periodically, it's not a barefoot swimming beach. However, guests are provided both snorkeling gear and complimentary water shoes for exploring.
Famous Ristorante Pappagallo is within walking distance while the new Kimpton Seafire Resort & Spa is less than 10 minutes away by cab. Barkers Beach, an oceanfront nature conservancy home to nesting turtles, birds, and other fauna is a short 5-minute walk away. Since there is no Uber or Lyft on-island you might want to consider a rental car. The resort has plenty of gated on-site parking
