About The Owner

Click Satellite to see the map below Tim grew up in Grand Cayman. His Mom is a Caymanian whose ancestral family have been in the island since its earliest settlement. Tonya was born in Texas and also lived in Illinois, North Carolina, and back in Texas before marrying the island boy and moving to the islands.

They and their two youngest sons now live in Governor's Harbour, in the West Bay district of Grand Cayman. In September 2008 Tim took early retirement after 35 years with Cable & Wireless (a full-service telecommunication company). For his last 10 years with the company Tim was its Chief Executive for the Cayman Islands.

Tim & Tonya have a business venture 'Cayman Critters' with its main outlet located at the historic 18th century step-well site, in the Bayshore Mall duty-free shopping complex on the waterfront in George Town. The main product is 'the collectable Critter experience' in which customers participate in creating plush toy animals. They also offer other plush toys and hand puppets, children's books, local music CDs, island artwork, Christmas ornaments and other souvenirs and gifts. On Sundays Tonya teaches the 5-year-olds at First Baptist Church, where Tim & Tonya are active members.

Tim is now a Consultant for Cayman Safari Adventures [caymansafari . com], a new local land tour operator. They offer very fun and interesting half-day tours of the districts east of George Town where authentic island traditions and culture, and much of Cayman's history, are still evident. Guests ride in an open-air canvas-topped genuine Land Rover vehicle, on a multi-sensory adventure to special places and people of the island. These tours go to special places, some of which don’t accommodate larger tour buses.

Tim & Tonya keep a powerboat ready on a canal near their home, so when they get the opportunity they can cross the North Sound to 'kotch' for a few more wonderful days at their favourite island retreat.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2006

Why The Owner chose Rum Point

Over the Easter holidays of several years, Tim & Tonya and their youngsters went camping at the public beach near the Kaibo, in the Rum Point area, in keeping with a popular local 'tradition.' They brought their powerboat so that they could go into the North Sound to do some fishing, snorkeling or other water sports. During some other holiday periods they would get together with relatives and rent a condo in the Rum Point / Cayman Kai area. On those occasions they found it felt like they were on a different island - enjoying a charming, relaxing Caribbean vacation experience far away from the cares of everyday life on the busy west side of Grand Cayman. Tonya spotted a real estate ad for a unit in the Island Houses right across the street from Rum Point Club, they went and took a look ... and discovered their new island retreat they named Kai Kotch!

What makes this townhome unique

Most of all Tim & Tonya enjoy the tranquility of the Sand Pointe Cove area and the secluded beach in front of the Island Houses complex, with the opportunity to just relax and enjoy the 'inside-outside' open feeling of Kai Kotch. In the mornings when they are there, they often go for a paddle in one of the 2-person kayaks, or for a bike ride to the other 'cays' of the Cayman Kai community. Sometimes they go for a ride on the paddle boat (when the kids let them have a turn!) and sometimes on dark nights they take a kayak ride to see once again the bioluminescence in the cove. The Island Houses complex has a dock that makes boat use convenient, so Tim brings the boat across the North Sound so they can go snorkeling in the day or bottom fishing in the evening. The boys enjoy catching conch during the open season, and Tonya cooks up some great batches of conch fritters. Friends and family drop in to visit and catch some of the peaceful spirit of the place, the kids bring friends for 'sleepovers,' and in the winter season other Island House owners spend several weeks or months there too, so it makes for a great time of catching up with our 'winter neighbors.'

Great Place Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 16 days at this great place. Left kicking and screaming. Could kayak, snorkel, and bike without getting in the car to drive any where. The place was more than expected. The screened in patio was a life saver in the evening when the bugs came out. The owner and management company were great to work this. Had a issue with the blender and coffee maker. The management company immediately took care of the problem. Got to meet and talk to the owners, great people to deal with. Perfect location. Great near by restaurants. Would eat out one night, cook the next. The unit had everything we needed. the unit was clean and everything in it was up scale. With a washer/ dryer don't need to bring a lot of clothes. First place we have stayed in that had so many beach towels. There was just the two of us, but the layout was great for two couples. Went to Seven Mile Beach to say we been there. Spent 15 minutes on it and left. Headed back to the peace and quit of the unit. Used the kayaks and bikes every day. Great add on. Rent a car. We rented from Andy's, would rent from them again. Got a flat tire one evening coming back from dinner. Was dark and about 6 miles from unit. Had to drive back on the flat tire. Ruined the tire and rim. Called Andy's next morning, they had a new car out to use in an hour. Trying to figure out how to fit a trip back here next year. Can't say enough good about the owners and unit.

Super Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Kai Kotch was everything we were hoping for in our Grand Cayman vacation. Our family of 4 (9 year old daughter and 6 year old son) loved the house and its location. Rum Point beach was about 75 yards from the house and the snorkeling was great. The kayaks that came with the unit practically paid for a free nights stay when compared against the available nightime kayak tours. Some recommended restaurants include Tukka towards the East End, Kurts Kitchen (non-traditional location on the way to Bowden Town but great local food) and Rackams in Georgetown.

Tim, the owner of Kai Koch, was a pleasure to work with. Very easy and accomodating. We had a slight issue with the coffee maker and it was addressed promptly. The overall management of the unit was outstanding.

We definately recommend Kai Kotch and look forward to coming back for snorkeling at Eden Rock and over the Wreck of the Cali.

Great house, outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

For our return trip to Grand Cayman, we chose to stay in the Rum Point area to avoid Seven Mile Beach. Our "island house" Kai Kotch, was attractive, well-kept and super-conveniently located. We loved that we had use of kayaks to paddle over the bioluminescense in the lagoon right in our backyard! Two evenings out were high points for us and our 20-year-olds. We enjoyed morning bike rides around the neighborhood (two more bikes would have been nice). And we could stroll just across the street to Rum Point. The screened-in lanai is a perfect place to eat meals or play games. Our daughters also enjoyed the community pool, although it was mostly frequented by parents and young children. It was great just to relax, read a book and look out at the beautiful lagoon. We would definitely rent Kai Kotch if/when we return to Grand Cayman.

Excellent vacation choice

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing place to stay as a family with 3 teenagers. We rented a big car thinking in a week full of traveling and exploring. Finding this place so peaceful and beautiful, our children did not want to leave Rum Point and we stayed there the whole time, just swimming, snorkeling and enjoying every night the bioluminescence on the cove with the kayaks . My husband drove 3 minutes every morning to fish at the star fish beach, which we also loved. We booked a trip on a boat starting at Rum Point to see the stingray city just 13 minutes away. Highly recommend this as well.

The place was big enough to rest and enjoy our time as a family. The owner was very nice and helpful with all the information and details we needed. The house was equipped with lots of snorkeling gear, we had brought our own, but if you do not have one, you will find more than enough. The grocery store is 20 minutes away and it is very small. If you rent a car it is easier to stop at the big grocery store close to the airport and buy your food there. The restaurant at Rum Point is excellent but the prices are high for a big family to eat there every night. This was our best beach vacation ever and we hope to come back in the future.

This is a lovely place. We LOVED the cove and were steps away from the incredibly beautiful Rum Point beach. The snorkeling was exceptional though the current is very, very strong. The lanai is great for an afternoon of relaxation and everything we needed was there. Thank you Tim for the great vacation.

very close to great beach for kids

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our two young children and were pleased with the house, as well as the proximity to Rum Point, where the kids loved to play. We also got to check out the bioluminesence on the lagoon a few nights in the kayaks and that was a new and memorable experience for all of us!

Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Sand Pointe Cove is one of only a few bodies of water in the world that have such intense bioluminescence which is especially spectacular on moonless nights. You can check this out for yourself on a night-time cruise on our paddle boat or kayak fleet!

A wide range of watersports and beach activities are available at the Rum Point Club a few steps away from Kai Kotch (just across the street). There is also great snorkeling with lots of marine life around the coral shoals in crystal-clear waters of the North Sound just off the Rum Point Beach.

The Botanic Park and the Mastic Trail are just a few minutes’ drive away. Both of these sites offer “up close & personal” enjoyment of Cayman’s native flora and fauna for visitors interested in the natural environment on land.

See the Owner's website www.kaikotch.com for more info and recommendations.
