Fox Den Cottage & Fox Den Lodge

 

Finding your way from Owen Roberts International Airport in George Town, to Fox Den in Bodden Town, is easy! Grand Cayman is a small island, there's basically one main road from one end of the island to the other, and the Cottage and Lodge are located right on the main road going east, about ten miles from the airport (and George Town). There's only one exit road from the airport and rental car plaza, which ends at a stop sign, just beside the main Post Office processing facility. At the stop sign, turn left, and continue past Foster's Food Fair (on your right) until the first round-about. This Foster's is one of three major supermarkets located directly along your route in from the airport, and all three are indicated on our maps by green dots.  At the round-about, make sure that there are no cars coming from the right (they have the right-of-way), and continue to your left, so no need to actually "enter" the round-about.

The road will continue curving to the left around the end of the airport runway and at the junction a little further, you'll keep to your left (so no stop). The airport runway is still on your left for a few hundred feet, and you're now on the main road heading east towards Bodden Town, East End, Northside, and Rum Point. Along the way, the road leads through several villages including Spotts, Prospect, Savannah, Lower Valley, and Pedro. The latter three are located in the district of Bodden Town, so don't confuse any signs indicating the name of the district with the town itself, which is about ten miles further along the main road. Keep in mind as well that all speed limit signs are in miles-per-hour, even if your rental car might have a speedometer in kilometers-per-hour.

You'll soon arrive at the first of three more round-abouts and, again, you'll keep left and not actually "enter" the round-about. The three round-abouts are indicated on the map below by a black circle and a dot in the centre. The next of these three round-abouts is barely a quarter-mile further, and you'll take the second exit. As you'll see, the first exit leads into the Grand Harbour Shopping Centre, and to the Hurley's supermarket. After the round-about -- whether continuing along your route or exiting from the shopping centre parking lot -- you'll keep to your left, taking the extreme left lane, and passing directly by an Esso (on your left), thereby avoiding an additional and unnecessary round-about.

At the next (and last) round-about, you'll again take the second exit, and continue on towards Bodden Town. At all the round-abouts you'll encounter, you'll in fact be continuing "straight" along the main road, if you can imagine you would have before the round-abouts were built (i.e., no turns at all). A few miles further, you'll pass the Countryside Shopping Village (on your left) and a large Rubis station (on your right), and continue towards Bodden Town.

After passing through Savannah and Lower Valley, you'll watch for Midnight Road on your right, as Fox Den is immediately after it, right on the main road -- and easy to miss, especially at night. It's a gated property and the address is 2516 Shamrock Road, before Beach Bay Road. You'll see a "Fox Den" sign on one of the stone pillars framing the driveway entrance. You can park in the first space to your right after you enter the gate -- which will be open -- and then press the buzzer at the main house where Annie-Rose will give you the key and direct you to the Cottage or Lodge, both just behind the main house.

There's no need to first come to Turtle Nest Inn & Condos to check in, but it would be a pleasure for us to meet you during your stay, and the Inn office is open daily from 9:00am to 5:30pm for any help or information, and to take advantage of all the common facilities.

We suggest that you print a copy of these maps to take with you on your trip. And, just in case, you can reach us (locally) at the Inn for help at 947.8665 between 9:00am and 5:30pm, seven days a week. The drive in from the airport may be a good time to shop for groceries and we'd probably suggest one of the two supermarkets located further along your route, either Hurley's, in the Grand Harbour Shopping Centre (a couple of miles after the airport) or the Foster's in Countryside Shopping Village, in Savannah, only about 5 minutes before you arrive at the Cottage.

All three supermarkets are open six days a week (closed on Sunday), between 7:00am and 10:00pm You'll find a liquor store (for beer, wine and spirits) located just a few steps from each of the three supermarkets, and they're also open six days a week, but from 10:00am to 7:00pm. If arriving on a Sunday, there are convenience stores open until 10:00pm and located along your route (usually in/next to a Rubis or Esso service station), including one in Bodden Town itself at a small Rubis station just two properties before the Inn (along  the main road, but beyond Fox Den Cottage and Lodge).
