Rum Point Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + 1 Bath - (Sleeps 2-4)

Kick back “island-style” in a luxurious setting!!! Leave the crowds behind on Seven Mile Beach. The Retreat is located at Rum Point, in the heart of the Cayman Kai area, on the north side of the island. There are only 23 units on our seven acres of beachfront property with 1,300 feet of white sandy beach. An easy 35 minutes by car from the airport, George Town, great shopping, and many delectable restaurants. This is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the Caribbean in all its natural beauty.

This is truly the most beautiful beach on Grand Cayman! The sand is a gorgeous white with a hint of pink. The water is turquoise blue and absolutely crystal clear. The water is very shallow hundreds of feet offshore, perfect for the kids. The beach has lots of vegetation, shade trees, and wildlife, making it a nature lover’s paradise. The waters are part of a nationally protected marine park. So, you will find lots of fish and coral right out your back door.

In addition to our stunning beach, the Retreat offers many great amenities including a newly resurfaced tennis court, a new game room, new work out facility and attractively landscaped pool. All of these amenities are available for your enjoyment at no cost during your stay.

Right next door to the Retreat is the Rum Point Club, which has a nice gift shop, is the very popular Wreck Bar and Grill, a great fine dining restaurant, and a Red Sail Sports rental and activity center. The food at Rum Point is outstanding, the drinks may be even better, and the friendly service can’t be beat. At Red Sail Sports, you can plan snorkeling, diving and Stingray City excursions. If you want to play on the beach, you can rent all kinds of beach toys including snorkeling gear, wave runners, sailboats, kayaks, and more!

Our condominium is a large one bedroom, one bathroom unit, with more than 1,000 square feet of living space. We have a great view of the beach from the living room and the screened lanai. The unit is on the third floor, which almost always provides for a nice breeze if you want to open up the screened windows and let the ocean air flow through. Our unit is ideally situated for a couple or young family. The large bedroom features a king sized bed.

The living room has a queen-size pullout couch. An additional pullout bed is available upon request. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a dishwasher and disposal. Our unit also has a washer and dryer, so feel free to pack light.

To keep you entertained in the evenings, we have cable television, a DVD player with a selection of movies, a stereo with a variety of CD’s, video games, board games, puzzles, and cards. A small library of novels is available for your enjoyment. Email your family and friends from your laptop. We have high-speed wireless internet and a color printer for your use free of charge. Local telephone calls are also free of charge. International calls can be made using your calling card or any major credit card.

From our condominium, you will walk out your door onto one of the Caribbean's most amazing beaches. If you stay on the Lagoon, you will find yourself driving to our beach. You may be able to find a place at the Kaibo that is a little bit cheaper. But, you will find our condominium to be the best value on the treasured ocean side at Rum Point.

The Retreat and our unit have been inspected and approved by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. So, rest assured that our amenities are up to the finest of standards. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our condominium or the island. So, please don't hesitate to ask. We hope to have the opportunity to share our pristine home away from home with you…

About Adela Parlette

My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have 2 boys, ages 11 and 15. We live in Houston, Texas. We enjoy getting away to our condo at Rum Point as frequently as we can. Our kids enjoy telling their friends that in Grand Cayman their back yard is a beach and their front yard is a pool and tennis court! We enjoy having friends and family visit so that we can show off our home away from home. We would love to share our island home with you while we are back in Houston, putting in time in the 'real world.'

Adela Parlette purchased this condo in 2007

Why Adela Parlette chose Rum Point

My husband and I have talked about buying a property in the Caribbean since our honeymoon. Everytime we would go on vacation to an island, that conversation would come back up. But, we never pulled the trigger. Back in July of 2007, my in-laws watched the kids for a week while my husband and I went on our first vacation by ourselves since the kids were born. We went to Grand Cayman and stayed on 7 Mile Beach. The beaches were stunning and the island was absolutely paradise. Beatiful views...warm water...laid-back island atmosphere. Around the middle of the week, we decided to rent a car and drive over to Rum Point, which we had read about online. Now, I grew up in the Caribbean and we have traveled pretty extensively to various island destinations. I have seen my share of stunningly beautiful beaches. But, let me tell you...when we got out of the car and walked around the corner of the gift shop and saw the beach at Rum Point, we were absolutely awestruck by the beauty. We had a drink at the Wreck Bar and decided to walk out to the water. The water was perfectly calm and clear as a looking glass. We were able to walk out a couple hundred feet from the shore and the water was only waist high! We began to talk about how this would be such a perfect place to come with the kids. Shallow, calm water. Nice quiet, family atmosphere. Just about then we noticed a couple of really nice looking buildings right next door on the same beach. We wandered next door, found out there was a one bedroom condo for sale, and the rest is history.

Our wedding and honeymoon

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at The Retreat #16 was perfect. We got married the day after we arrived and enjoyed the remaining days as a married couple on our honeymoon. The condo is very comfortable and makes you feel at home. Plenty of towels, linens and pillows available. You can cook a nice meal in the kitchen or on the grill, or head next door to the wreck bar and restaurant for lunch and dinner. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the porch with the view of the beautiful water. Definitely stop at the grocery store on the way to Rum point, and don't forget laundry detergent if you plan on washing anything. We just stocked up on breakfast food, beverages and snacks.

We spent a few days exploring the other side of the island and a few days staying in rum point and Cayman kai. We found it very relaxing on this side of the island but there is still a lot to do and see. We highly recommend the boat trip to see the sting rays, going to Starfish point in Cayman Kai and relaxing on the beautiful beach there, and also making reservations for the BBQ on Monday nights at the Wreck Bar at rum point. The atmosphere is great with live music and the food was very good. Kayaking thru the bay was also amazing and scenic. We have to thank Adela for her wonderful suggestions and for helping to make our trip memorable.

We are already talking about planning another trip back!

My husband and I spent a week over the New Year (2015) at The Retreat at Rum Point on Grand Cayman Island. This was our second stay at The Retreat. This time we even stayed longer than the first time and had a fantastic time. We had beautiful, sunny, breezy weather the entire time. The condo is so relaxing. The bedroom is very spacious. We slept extremely well, being able to unwind, far away from the busy work-a-day world! It was great to just walk to the beach or restaurant next door for refreshments. We made use of the swimming pool/recreation center that is also right next door to the condo. There is a very nice shop that carries a lot of nice clothing/beach wear located at the beach. The beach restaurant and at nearby Kaibo restaurant, there are weekly barbeque nights with wonderful food and live music and dancing. There is a really nice grocery store that is a great place to stock up on the way to The Retreat from the airport. This year we rented a car, which was fun because we could drive around the island. The Christmas decorations around the island were really impressive and stunning. A must see during the months of December and January. I highly recommend The Retreat at Rum Point with it's ocean view balcony and resort beach and activities center just next door.

The view is great you can have your coffee in the morning by looking at the ocean. You can truly relax and enjoy yourself with your family. We when snorkeling every day. Just make sure you stop by the supermarket on your way because once you are in this place trust me you are not going to want to leave!!!!! Thank you Adella for being so kindand set in up my friend next to us we had a great time thanks to you!!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Macchia Family, I am so glad that we met while we were on the island. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about your fishing and snorkeling trips. The fact that your friends stayed in the same building was so much fun. What a fantastic vacation! I will never forget you! I hope you come back in the summer again and we can host you. Many blessings to each one of you and a happy new school year! Adela

Birthday Celebration in the Cayman Islands!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my fiance spent my birthday at Rum Point, a secluded area on the big island of the Grand Caymans. It was absolutely wonderful! My apologies to Adela in getting this review written so late! The condo is great for a couple, and I am sure it would be fantastic for a small family. It is very clean, there are provisions for cooking, the living room is comfortable, and we enjoyed having dinners on the balcony. It is literally at Rum Point so all you have to do is walk downstairs and you're at the beach. The Rum Point Beach Club is next door and has excellent cocktails and a restaurant, which we dined at one night. Everything you would need for a great stay is provided at Adela's condo. Once you land at the airport, I would suggest stopping at the market that is halfway between the airport and Rum Point, it is a nicer market than the one closest to the airport and there is a liquor store right next door. We cooked most of our meals and got snacks too. I really appreciate the friendly communication from Adela, she made booking this vacation a breeze and we loved our stay at Rum Point.

Owner's Response: Hi Kristine, My fellow Houstonian! I know you had a blast in Rum Point. May is a very fun time of the year to see some of the Caymanian culture at their annual Batabano Parade and Festivities! I remember you telling me how busy you were exploring around the island during your stay. I am so glad that you both had a terrific time. Our doors are always open for another visit. I hope you had a chance to have a mudslide from Melissa at the Rum Point Bar and Grill. With gratitude for taking the time to add your comments! Adela

This was absolutely our best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at The Retreat #16 was by far our best vacation ever! Everything listed in the ads, etc. was spot on - there were no surprises when we arrived or during our stay and Adela is an absolute gem to work with!

Have you ever booked a trip basing a good part of the decision on the pictures only to arrive and discover that the pictures must have been taken 10 years earlier and the property is nothing at all like you imagined? Well, that won't happen here! All of the amenities listed are in excellent working condition and the property is immaculately maintained. We snorkeled right off the beach every day and found the reef there to be a virtual "who's who" of tropical fish. While there were too many to list, highlights include turtles, multiple species of angel fish, butterfly fish, nurse sharks, parrotfish, soft and hard corals, sponges and conchs galore. Check out a fish guide to the Cayman Islands and I promise you'll see it on this reef!

Adela also provides a comprehensive document that covers everything from directions from the airport to local attractions, restaurants, shopping and just about everything else you can imagine. Our favorite dining spot turned out to be the "Over the Edge" restaurant which is about 6 miles from Rum Point. They have excellent breakfasts and dinners and the fried bread is to die for.

We went to the 7 Mile Beach side of the island twice in 10 days - once to go shopping in Georgetown and the other to dive the Kittiwake wreck. While both experiences were great, we couldn't wait to get away from the hustle and bustle of that side of the island and back to peace and quiet on the North Side. A rental car is a must, but it is very easy to get around as long as you quickly get used to driving on the wrong side of the road.

We split our meals pretty evenly between eating out and eating in the condo and I will say that Adela has everything you need to cook in, so all you will need to supply is the food. The condo is extremely clean and well cared for, the screened lanai is an awesome place to look out over the ocean, the central air works great and the wifi and satellite TV came in very handy in the evenings.

Oh, and Walter at Red Sail Sports right next door is amazing and will take care of all your water needs from snorkeling to scuba diving.

I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a complete, relaxing vacation. It's worth every penny and we will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Matt, Thank you for your wonderful review. I loved hearing from you and Kim during your visit. I cannot wait to get back to Rum Point to see the new turtle that you found swimming around in our marine park. I hope you come back soon to greet all of your new friends, snorkel, have delicious meals and drinks and explore other sites. It was a great pleasure to work with you! Adel

Great relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Retreat #16 for 2 weeks in January 2014. The condo looked just like the pictures. The king bed was very comfortable with nice linens. The condo was very clean and fully equipped with everything you need. We barely used the air conditioning as the beautiful ocean breeze kept the condo cool. A rental car is a must as it is a distance from the airport and needed for sight seeing. Rum Point is a great place for a bite to eat and meet people. One of our favorite places to eat was Over the Edge Restaurant. The food was fantastic! We had the pleasure of meeting the head chef who told us about the specials of the day and the owner, Phillipe who was wonderful! Kaibo Restaurant also has great food. Be sure to go swimming with the stingrays! It is a once in a lifetime experience!! Adela, the owner of the condo is fabulous to work with! We had never rented a condo for our vacations before but Adela made it super easy. She always replied promptly with our questions and she has an awesome information package. Thank you again Adela for allowing us to have a great relaxing vacation in your condo. :)

Owner's Response: Dear Heather and Luk, Thank you for your wonderful review. I am glad we took the time to get you acquainted with Rum Point prior to your visit. You were able to hit the right spots and enjoy everything our side of the island has to offer during your visit. I am glad you were able to escape the Canadian cold weather and relax in the sunny sandy beaches of Rum Point. The memories you made will last a lifetime and I hope they will bring you back to our "Sweet 16" condo in Rum Point! Best regards, Adela
