|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
Welcome to Blue S'Kai, our white sand beach getaway condo is new to the rental market in beautiful, upscale Cayman Kai. Built in 2005, the condominium is part of Kaibo Yacht Club, Phase II. The condo is painted and decorated in a tropical style, except for the master bedroom, which has a tranquil spa-feel to it. The king sized bed in the master bedroom gives you a view of the beach, the palm trees and the water. The second bedroom has two twin beds and there is a full size queen sofa/sleeper that allows a total of six guests. We have also added a playpen that doubles as a crib. Both bathrooms are equipped with full bath tub and showers. One full bathroom is attached to master bedroom. We have a water cooler with a fresh five-gallon jug of water on your arrival. This means you're not buying drinking water. The kitchen is well stocked with granite counter tops, blender, ice maker, coffee maker and toaster. We also provide a cell phone with a credit of US $12.50 to use as you need to, local or long distance, the cellphone can also be 'topped off' everywhere around the island.
We have really made this an enjoyable condo for all ages, there is a TV/DVD player with cable in each bedroom and in the living room. There are four bikes to use free of charge, 2 adult, 2 kids bikes. We have many board games, cards, poker chips, DVD's, books, a CD stereo, an ipod ready boom box, beach toys, snorkel gear, kids swim goggles and fins and even an X BOX with games for all ages. A pump is provided to inflate rafts and other water toys you may wish to bring along.
Blue S'Kai fits whatever you are looking for in a Caribbean vacation. Perfect for a couples getaway or for a family vacation. During the day your toughest decision may be whether to sun by the pool or to take a deck chair under your own palm tree (watch for falling coconuts). We frequently are the only people on the beach or pool (private).
This is a first floor condo, you step off your patio onto a pristine beach, the infinity edge pool, with a Jacuzzi, is just 20 steps away. First floor is convenient because you (and your kids) can go straight into the condo for a bathroom run, to get towels or to refill your rum drink. Second story units require you to walk to the parking area for access (less convenient). Also there is no elevator.
Kaibo Bar and Grill is next door, they have a casual daytime menu, and an impressive dining menu. They also have a beach volleyball court and live music on select weekends. Dining can be on the beach if you choose, literally, some tables are on the beach, go barefoot. The full bar offers a beach bar atmosphere during the day and a very romantic setting at night.
Just past the Kaibo Grill next door or at Rum Point, you can rent jet skis and kayaks or book a snorkeling or SCUBA trip. Red Sail Sports even has a catamaran with a trampoline on the front. A MUST see in Cayman is Sting Ray City (10 minutes by boat)where you can swim with and feed the gentle Southern stingray. You can snorkel, SCUBA or go on the glass bottom boat for those who don't want to get wet. This is an amazing trip, truly a highlight. Our favorite is going to Sting Ray City and snorkeling off your jet ski with Peter at Fat Fish Charters.
Rum Point is about 5 minutes by bike about 2 minutes by car, another beautiful beach with a swimming area, gift shop,casual restaurant and bar, they close at 5 pm, generally busy. Snorkeling right off the beach is spectacular and close in in several locations around Cayman including the North End. You WILL see lots of fish and starfish snorkeling in the Cayman Kai area.
On our family vacations we have enjoyed horseback riding on the beach and ocean swimming with the horses(also a unique experience, only one company on Cayman swims with the horses). The Turtle Farm has a breeding pond and touch tanks, (where you can pick up a turtle for a picture). In Georgetown, a 40 min drive, you can enjoy duty free shopping, restaurants, and a 100 foot submarine dive. For the skaters and surfers in your family there is also a great skate park (for skateboarders) along with a wave machine. For the person who likes a more crowded environment you can drive to seven mile beach which also offers shopping, restaurants and public beaches. Our favorite time has been on the beach at the condo with the kids or in the evening by ourselves.
Grocery shopping is available on your way to Kaibo from the airport or in advance of your arrival, for an extra $25 plus grocery costs (grocery stores are closed on Sundays).
Relax, escape, enjoy, this is a great vacation that you will want to do every year. Don't forget to bring your camera, you'll want to remember this one.
Had an amazing time on our trip! Condo was even better than described in prior guest's comments! Have already recommended to friends/family & are planning our next trip! John was amazing to work with. Excellent communicator & terrific follow up! Book your trip NOW...just don't pick the dates we want! :)
Nulla di caraibico su quest'isola che si è rivelata subito una piccola porzione di Stati Uniti nel bel mezzo del Paradiso.
La proprietà è molto carina e comoda è dotata di tutti i comfort. L'appartamento è accogliente e vivace. L'accesso diretto alla spiaggia è molto piacevole come pure la quiete della baia. Le biciclette messe a disposizione sono assai utili per esplorare i dintorni di Rum Point, ma per vedere il resto dell'isola serve l'auto.
Che sorprende sempre è la disponibilità e la fiducia del proprietario nel mettere a disposizione la propria casa e tutto ciò che contiene. Anche se breve è stato un soggiorno rilassante dotato di ogni comodità.
My wife and I recently made our first trip to the island and were extremely pleased with all aspects of our trip. The condo was beautiful and provided all of the amenities you could ask for, plus more, and the location was ideal. Correspondence with the owner was a breeze and he is extremely informative, responsive and easy to work with. We took advantage of all the great things about the condo and surrounding areas including buying groceries and cooking in, grilling burgers off the back patio on the Weber grill provided, utilizing the cell phone, washer and dryer, pool and hot tub, riding bikes down to Star Fish & Rum Point and walking next door to get some great food and drinks from Kaibo Bar & Grill. Cayman is a great place to visit and this is the place to stay when you are here. Thanks again John for everything!
The place is perfect. It was fully equipped. My daughters loved that they were able to swim and be right next to the beach. We enjoyed the restaurant next door and ate there twice.. quite pricey, though but we enjoyed. The location is quiet and away from the town. We drove all over the island. It is a must to rent a car being on this point of the island. You will be away from it all but you still have beaches to enjoy on this side. I really recommend this place plus you are not missing too much of the city because it mainly caters to the cruises and almost everything shuts down as soon as they leave. We stayed there for five days and enjoyed everything about the place and we recommend anyone to stay here.
My family of 5 stayed here in January - me, my husband, two young adult sons and teenaged daughter. It's our second trip to Grand Cayman. We fell in love with Rum Point on our first visit years ago, and wanted to return to that area. We were very pleased with the condo in all respects. Our daughter is disabled, and it was great for her to easily get from car to condo and condo to beach. The pool was perfect for her too, with easy entry. The condo had everything we needed. We ate in most nights, and loved having the grill. The few nights we ate out, we went next door to the Kaibo Bar & Grill. We thought about going elsewhere (and I'm sure there are lots of good places!) but the food and drink were great, and we loved just walking home. Rum Point was a lovely as we remembered and it was so easy to spend the day there. We arrived late on a Saturday and really liked hiring Barb to buy our groceries for us. We were just able to arrive, and everything was there and put away. John sent lots and lots of information on all the activities available and just general info that's good to know (like the grocery stores not being open on Sundays). We'd done Stingray City on our last trip, so skipped it this time, but it's well worth doing. Places we did repeat (our kids were much younger last time, so had forgotten them) were the Botanical Gardens, and Pedro St. James Historic Site. We enjoyed these a lot both times. New to us were a visit to the blow holes. There's a local man who seems to be the unofficial guide to the holes. He was great! Good knowledge and entertaining too - we just tipped him a bit at the end. We did the bioluminescence kayak tour, and really enjoyed that. We also visited Starfish Beach. It took a bit of looking to find them, but was worth a visit! Don't be put off by the gates and sign at the end of the road that looks like the area is closed off. If you look to the left of the gate, you'll see a path that will take you right down to the beach. Go to the beach party Tuesday night at the Kaibo Bar & Grill - everything is tasty but the Oxtail Stew was my favorite! We travel frequently, and I've never been more pleased with any arrangements - most informative and responsive owner I've encountered, and a lovely condo. I'd recommend for people with disabilities who do NOT need a wheelchair.
If you're looking for a beautiful location to decompress this is a great place to be! Having lived in Grand Cayman years before we chose this location away from the more touristy and cruise ship infested seven mile beach. The property owners provided a lot of extras including everything you can imagine about where to eat, what to do, how to get around etc. Even though we lived on the island for years we learned about a new a fantastic activity! ( Night kayaking in mangroves and phosphorescents!) Providing a cell phone was a really nice touch, especially on an island where overseas cell charges can hit the stratosphere.The scuba diving was (as always) fantastic ( Go Lobster Pot Divers!) and if anyone goes to the Caymans without visiting Sting Ray City you've not properly visited the islands. We have been there more than 15 times and the experience is always thrilling! So exciting to see our children enjoying it! One tip to share? Get the mudslides at Rum Point ( not Kaibo), they are the best on the island and worth the 5 minute bike ride!
We enjoyed our time at Kaibo. We appreciate the nice touches that John has added to the condo to make it more like home. There are laundry hampers in each bedroom, a local cell phone to use while on the island, wide selection of kitchen utensils and cookware, along with Tupperware for leftovers. We had wanted to be away from the cruise ships and busyness of Seven Mile Beach, but we didn't realize how many of the near-by restaurants and attractions that we had researched would be closed or have limited hours due to it being low season. Needless to say, we drove 597 miles during our week's stay on Grand Cayman, so we got to explore the island. This is a very well-maintained condo on the bay and it has a swimming pool. We would recommend if you want to get away from it all.
Stingray City is a 10 minute boat ride from the dock next door. Red Sail Sports or Fat Fish Charters will pick you up there, you have a choice of snorkeling, scuba diving or glass bottom boat. There also is a catamaran sail boat with a trampoline on the front available for excursions. Be sure to ask us about horseback riding on the beach and about ocean swims with the horses.
