What to Expect

Along with housing a small resource room and the Cayman Islands National Archive, Mission House retains some of the original decor from past owners, allowing todays guest to get a feel for how life has been on the island for generations.

Located on a parcel of both dry and wetland, the Mission House is a traditional two story Caymanian home.
