“Casual Luxury Get-Away”
Reviewed 16 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016
people found this review helpful

As world travelers who have enjoyed living abroad, our last few summers have been spent enjoying three river cruises throughout Europe aboard the Viking River Cruise Line. From Budapest, Paris, Moscow and Amsterdam, Viking saturated us in casual luxury.
So why have we spent the last four winters at Castaway Cottage? Because we are spoiled and seek the best value in unique five-star accommodations. We’re also smart to know that if we are spending an entire winter month in the Caribbean, it’s got to be where casual luxury is a given as with this well kept, picturesque and un-crowded property.
From the moment we arrive in this sublime tropical setting, we start to shed layers of stress like layers from an onion peel. Throughout our stay, the owners, Thom and Susan insure their excellent property keeping techniques are 24-karat quality in all areas and our stay is the optimum in relaxation.
Having snorkeled offshore in the Caymans for over 19 years, we find the snorkeling at the Bodden Town reef by Castaway Cottage to be the best. The frigate birds, and occasional pelicans, are a delight to watch in the late afternoon and there are always pleasant surprises such as the local fishermen casting their nets. The experience of living in Bodden Town on the south side of Grand Cayman has enabled us to become familiar with and enjoy the rhythms of life on Grand Cayman Island as we have never done in our earlier years of vacationing on Seven Mile Beach with its crowded beaches.
In rural Bodden Town, the magic of Castaway Cottage lies in its un-crowded beach and private tropical venues. One need not be on high alert to capture a pristine moment, snorkel one of the best reefs, read all the books you like, nap under the palms and enjoy the first class relaxation. For the past four Februarys, owners Thom and Susan have created a comfortable and welcoming home for us as honored guests. Consequently, we are already booked for February in 2017, 2018 and two more years in advance to insure we don’t miss an opportunity for another magical stay at Castaway Cottage.
