Formerly known as the West Bay Pink House, this is probably the most photographed home in Grand Cayman. The pink-and-white Caymanian cottage was built in 1912 of wattle and daub around an ironwood frame. Cheery Mac Bothwell, who grew up in the house, takes you on tours that present a nostalgic and touching look at life in Grand Cayman before the tourism and banking booms. COST: $5. Mon.-Sat. 8-5.

On our short excursion, the driver stopped for a few minutes, quick drive by, explained the significance and historical background. Seating on the wrong side of vehicle 🚗 for a good picture. If possible would have liked a closer look.

Driver took us by it for a 30 sec stop. Didn't offer much history or details. Didn't even get out of the tour bus.

It was interesting the history behind this house, however we didn't get to go in the house. It was just another drive by - by our hot mini van tour guide.

We stopped here on an island routes tour of the island; it was nice to see. There was no cost for admission but then again, we didn't get to go inside. We just got to hear about the traditional Cayman homes a little. Nice history....More

Was not able to go inside when we visited, but our guide made sure we understood the significance of this home. Notice the sand (no grass) yard. Windows allowed cool breezes. Has been preserved quite well over the years.
