Has anyone stayed at Thatch Hill House on the North Side?

Thinking of renting Thatch Hill House and looking for any info. How is the snorkeling ? How is the beach? I read a couple reviews that it had debris/garbage washed up on it. Does it detract from the snorkel experience? Also wondering is this a problem with every house on the east side because of the winds/currents? Can you suggest any other houses to rent for 2 adults that would have great snorkeling from the beach?

FWIW, my [no] guess was related to the Cayman Kai area, not the East end.

If this project is fully built out, it will have an impact on everything on the island from air travel to traffic.

That's what I thought too. It will affect just about everything from traffic, helicopter landing, housing for people who work there that perhaps now live in the WB area etc who would rather not make GT part of their commute. I had heard that elective surgery was going to be part of the package (in fact I had heard that all the other stuff was to round the plastic surgery end out to make it more socially acceptable). I like the idea better than casinos etc., but it will be sad to the impact it makes . . . the tough thing about "progress" is that when it happens, you cannot go back!! Also interested to see how the proposed "business" hotel which the old Hyatt is being channeled into works out. How much "business" stay can there possibly be on the island?

Thanks, p59teitel, for the link to Dr. Shetty's discussion. It was very informative.

Here is another article about the building plans for the facility (along with time lines) as well as about the 3 PADs for the area (2 of which are associated with the facility itself). It looks like they are planning on building hotels and "residential areas" in conjunction with the medical facility.

The airport will need to be expanded to handle all the increased traffic (but so far the plans for that are still in the "soon come" stage).

I still chuckle when I remember that a US Airways pilot told me that British Airways pilots call Owen Roberts "the aircraft carrier," because if you don't stick the landing on that short runway you're in the drink...
