Know Before You Go...
Tatenda is a great family villa because its far enough from cruise traffic and tourist spots to actually relax, but close enough to snorkeling in Smith Cove and shopping in Georgetown to stay entertained. Since the villa is in a residential area, you can enjoy the beach, outdoor kitchen, and pool in privacy. Plus, the villa itself is designed with privacy in mind. None of the bedrooms are right next to each other, and the suites all have their own bathrooms and TVs. There’s even a partially attached loft on the side of the house with its own entrance, kitchenette, living room, bathroom, and two suites. You and your family can enjoy seclusion and privacy at Tatenda, without sacrificing convenience.
Amazing beachfront villa on the South Sound!
Tatenda is an oceanfront, Grand Cayman villa with a private beach and spacious arrangements. This fully air-conditioned Caribbean getaway has ocean views and tropical decor.
Tatenda is steps from the sea and has a private, manmade beach for guests. Take kayaks and stand up paddle boards out on the water or recline in the hammock. The best access point is 45 paces from the shoreline, and there’s a snorkeling reef nearby. Float around in the infinity edge pool, and rinse off in the outdoor shower before enjoying lunch al fresco. Grill up a feast and mix drinks in the outdoor kitchen, play music through the outdoor speakers, and flip on the landscape lighting to turn any evening into an event.
