ORIGINAL ISLAND BEACHFRONT LIVING AT KIWI KAI WITH GORGEOUS CARIBBEAN VIEWS

Grand Cayman Condo Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, one full bath .Sleeps up to four.

Kiwi Kai is perfect for the couple or family that enjoys tropical open air living. This 910 square foot home sits right on the beach at Cayman Kai, Rum Point, North Side, on the island of Grand Cayman .You will be a few steps from snorkeling, swimming or wading in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Soak up the sun on your just about private sandy beach where you can listen to the gentle sounds of the waves lapping within the reef 200 yards away. All rooms have Caribbean views and open to screened porches with patio set, chaise lounges, hammock and BBQ. Ceilings are vaulted to 16 feet with Casablanca fans throughout. Kitchen is fully equipped with updated corian counters and sink, flat top stove and new washer/dryer. The comfortable Living room contains a library of 250+good books. This is definitely a retreat from a busy world and a get away from the touristy spots elsewhere on the island.....We do, however, supply a modem for Ethernet & Wireless Internet access for our guests

A Guest Speaks: Sea Lodge #18 is a fine place for easy,

private, and idyllic holiday. For our time

there, we had the entire beach to ourselves.

Everything is laid on, including plenty of

towels, and lots of little extras that made for

an easier trip and fewer journeys out to the

store. Good library of books and videos.

The best snorkeling on the island (and we

checked it out) is right outside or within a

reasonable swim of the lodge. Absolutely

no complaints - not a luxury place (who

needs that anyway?) but cool, comfortable,

and well-appointed.

Tom Myers, Maine, USA

Absolutely wonderful!!! It was great to have someone do our shopping before we arrived. One whole week with out a car or television and it was heaven. The oceanfront view was unbelievable. Great collection of reading.

---Donna Kiliingbeck (Howell)

Our Guests Speak: We are back safely from our stay at Sea Lodge 18 at

Rum Point in Cayman. What an amazing time we

had! We loved the sunrises, moonrises, eating on

the patio facing the sea, the weather, the lodge, the

kitty, the fishes, the stingrays, the palm trees, the

seclusion, B.A., her husband, Barbara, Rum Point,

the sunsets at Rum Point, napping in the hammocks

at Rum Point, the beverages at Rum Point, the

snorkeling which we did a good two hours of

everyday, sipping our own drinks while staring the

Milky Way and watching for shooting stars, living in

our swim suits, cooking our own food, napping

under a palm tree, the quiet, the no tv reception, no

news Tamra Larter, Philadelphia, PA

Guests say: We stayed in Kiwi Kai in September 2008.It was thoughtfully appointed with everything from a hommock to games, a library and even art supplies. What sets Bruce and Susan's sea lodge apart from those we saw was the sense we were staying at a freind's home-not a rental unit.

At the Sea Lodges Benji was there to answer our questions and Barbra let us know we could call her for anything we needed, making us feel welcome and well provided for without intruding. Bruce called us during our visit to make sure we didn't need anything and to answer any questions we might have.

The Beach at Kiwi Kai was simply marvelous. We were in absolutely gorgeous water 3-4 hours each day. The reef was less than 200 yards out, and there was abundant sea life for us to observe on our daily snorkeling trips. This was truly a destination we cherished and will hopefuly return to. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we enjoyed an island paradise.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our great experience renting this unit began even before we arrived with Susan's extremely helpful emails. The Sea Lodge had everything we needed during our stay including a well equipped kitchen for cooking in, a comfy king bed, and a lovely hammock to star gaze in each night. The beach was our own private paradise as we only saw our neighbors on occasion and the snorkeling was some of the best on the island. We would highly recommend the Sea Lodge for anyone who desires to get away from it all and enjoy a relaxing and fun vacation in paradise. As a side note, we recommend a car rental for the ability to get groceries, explore other parts of the island and enjoy the occasional night out.

Amazing accommodations and beach location!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to the Caribbean. I was looking for quiet, clean and relaxing...I got all 3 and then some.

The Sea Lodges are beautifully kept and the location is just rural enough to satisfy my desire of quiet. The white sandy beach was a 30 second walk. The water was blue and warm. I loved being able to walk back to the Sea Lodge throughout the day :)

I will be back!!!!!

The location is tranquil,beautiful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5
The location is tranquil,beautiful and relaxing. All the rooms were comfortable,we lacked for nothing. I enjoyed reading the journal entries from other guests. I appreciated all the fans,because it gets hot,but I loved hearing the rolling waves,and to feel the breeze. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet getaway. There weren't many guests around,which was perfect for me. I'm a nurse and have to be around people for hours. I really enjoyed not having to be too social this vacation! We walked up to Rum Point,and saw a fantastic sunset. We ate at Over the Edge,and had some delicious fish. We snorkled every day,and loved what we saw. Kenny spotted a nurse shark,barracuda and we saw the same sting ray 2 days in a row. (It's tail was broken,so we were able to identify him) What a glorious week seeing God's creation that's under the sea! We're so glad to have had a chance to stay in the Caymans. Thank you,Becky Grundei

Incredible Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Kiwi Kai was more than we could have asked for, and even though we endured a hard long winter in Michigan and some simple pleasures would have sufficed, this exceeded our expectations. Susan was extremely thorough in answering any questions we had, and she supplied us with more than enough information.
The few owners and vacationers we did come across at the lodge were very friendly and always willing to help, answer questions, or give tips. For example, our neighbor shared that they had lunch and beverages at not only a good deal, but also tasty with great views. Kaibo Yacht Club was great; my only regret is that we didn't discover it until it was too late to dine there for a formal dinner (Thursday through Sunday). In our opinion, Kiwi Kai had one of the best beaches on the island, and we did explore the island. 7 Mile Beach was touristy and overly crowded. We did find a secluded beach farther to the north but only to discover the water was infested with sea urchins! If we wanted more people interaction, we would just snorkel or walk our way to Rum Point (the snorkeling was fabulous!), or venture over to Kaibo Yacht Club. Our snorkel and Sting Ray City pkg. from Rum Point was definitely worth the money and time. The colors of life took our breaths away, and the sting rays were an incredible experience.
All the units at Kiwi Kai are kept up nicely, and they all have spectacular views of the ocean. Great sleep with the bedroom door open listening to the waves breaking. Meals on the screened-in porch were delightful as well. Our unit was clean and aesthetically pleasing. We had a great mix of activity and relaxation. Normally, my wife and I like to travel to different islands or countries for vacations, but we both agreed we would return to this glimpse of heaven, with or without our children.

Kiwi Kai Sea Lodge

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a week at the Kiwi Kai Sea Lodge on Grand Cayman Island. It was out first trip to that island and we loved it. Susan's sea lodge was wonderful - it had everything we needed, and walking right out to the beach was my favorite part! We found the snorkeling right off our beach to be excellent and for me, a novice snorkeler, it was ideal. We could walk to a few restaurants, and were able to explore parts of the island that tourists often don't see. Rum Point is lovely and we highly recommend the formal restaurant there- our favorite!

Beautiful Beach Front Walk Out!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time staying at the Sea Lodges, the first in Kiwi Kai. The property is well kept and the beach is clean, big and sandy. Kiwi Kai is a beautiful little condo with views of the ocean from every window. Both the front and back patios are screened. The washer and dryer are in a small closet, no sharing with other renters or going to a laundry room! The back patio has an amazing view of the ocean. We ate most meals on the comfortable patio furniture and enjoyed the breeze. My husband really enjoyed the hammock. I enjoyed to lounge chairs and sun! 85 every day. Beautiful sunrises.

The condo itself really is nicely equipped! We ate all breakfasts, most lunches and most dinners at the condo. I love to cook and found everything I needed to make GREAT meals, even a garlic press. It's the small things that make a difference. We packed lunches in the coolers provided, so we could enjoy other beaches and not rush back for meals. Ice cubes were in the freezer and the blender made great mudslides! The WiFi was speedy. We had iPhones and were able to send iMessages and FaceTime with family and use the docking station to stream music. All the furnishings were in nice shape. Everything was neat and clean.

The manager greeted us at the door and was very plesant. We had a number and could call her with any questions.The flowers left on the kitchen table were a sweet touch. Half way through our stay, the microwave died. It was replaced within a day! Great staff! Sue provided great communication before, during and after our stay. We felt the rental price was good and the description on HomeAway was accurate.

This is the quiet side of the island and the drive into Georgetown for dinner or shopping takes about 45 minutes. There are a few restaurants much closer, which were enjoyable, but we chose to stay in half our nights and just eat by candlelight ;) There are some DVDs and we did watch a few movies. Heads up, there is no Cable TV service. Hubby and I went and watched a Football game at Over The Edge, they have the NFL package :)

We spent one day at Rum Point. A beach with bar, outside eating, volleyball and water sports. Lots of fun! We had a car, which is necessary and explored the entire island. A different beach or snorkel spot every day.

This beach vacation was just an amazing way to connect with my husband and relax. The reviews are all true! This is a lovely, relaxing place to stay in paradise
