BAREFOOT LAGOON - ISLAND HOUSE

Grand Cayman Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2BR Waterview Vacation Rental Cayman Kai, Cayman Islands

The 'New Look' of 'Barefoot Lagoon'.

Our Island House has recently had a complete interior renovation. All new furniture throughout including living room, dining room, and both bedrooms.

From the moment you move in to the minute you depart, you'll have your own private home with all the creature comforts at your disposal. Kick off your shoes, and relax in a home away from home or play in the sea. Taste culinary delights and end your day with a romantic Caribbean sunset. Located in the heart of Rum Point on the north shore of Grand Cayman, this two-bedroom/2.5-bath home is ideal for a family or two couples. It features a swimming pool, deck, a lagoon with dock, and water views from both the two-story, screened-in porch and the bedroom balconies.

Island House is set in landscaped gardens with white sand on the quiet waters of the lagoon

just 150 feet from your back door. It's fully equipped with every comfort for an outstanding vacation in a contemporary tropical house.

The famous Rum Point Beach is accessed by a sand path between white picket fences -- just a few steps from the front door. As you walk towards the beach, cool trade winds will quickly erase all thoughts of your job, commute, and bad weather at home. You'll see Australian pines with island parrots and tropical birds sitting on their feathery branches.

This lovely home features lots of glass to take in the incredible views. Looking through a two-story wall of glass from the foyer, office/music room, and living room, you'll see the Caribbean Sea. Turn around, and you'll see the screened-in-lanai, backyard, and the lagoon beyond (about 50/100 feet) through 20 feet of sliding glass doors.

Adjacent to the living room is the dining room and kitchen.

Kitchen amenities include a coffeemaker, microwave, blender, rice cooker, and all the necessary cooking utensils. Off to the side is a closet with games and storage space, a half bath, and a laundry room with a washer, dryer, ironing board, and laundry supplies.

Directly off the kitchen, the two-story, screened-in lanai features an informal dining area with a barbecue gas grill. Form the lanai you'll have an unobstructed view of the hand-raked, sand lawn, backyard with tropical tress and shrubs -- leading to the pool (within 50 feet), boat dock, and lagoon shoreline.

This Island House offers two master bedroom suites upstairs. Each bedroom has a full private bathroom with shower and bath, and sliding glass doors opening onto a private screened-in-balcony. Both rooms have a lagoon view. And both have walk-in-closets, a ceiling fan, TV, a clock radio, and individual air-conditioning.

One bedroom is equipped with a king-size bed and dresser, while the other bedroom has two double beds and dresser. Located on the quiet North Side of the island, a 45-minute drive from the busy city of Georgetown, it has the famous Rum Point Beach only a few steps from your front door, a fresh water pool only a few steps from your back door, an inlet lagoon that exits in to the Caribbean Sea, many activities for adults and children, many very good restaurants, a complete water facility 'Red Sport Sails' at Rum Point Beach which offers any water sport you could want, a convenience store within a short distance and some of the World's finest neighbors. Grand Cayman's Best Kept Secret!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Barefoot lagoon was the most enjoyable vacation spot my family has ever chosen. We rented the house for a week and wish it had been two. My children loved having their own room, and the rest of the house was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was completely stocked including recipes from previous guests. We spent every morning out on the Lani and then headed to Rum Point for the rest of the day. After spending the day on the beach the kids did like the option of a pool to play in at the end of the day , the pool was just a short walk out the door and the house provided floats for use. We are already planning out return trip for this year and plan on staying 10 days. This the the iedal location for Families to stay, away from crowded seven mile beach but still reachable by car in about 20 minutes.

Hi Mr. Nevins,

I am finally getting around to thanking you for a truly wonderful
vacation at your beautiful island home.
Our vacation this past April was excellent and too short by far. It was my parents' first trip to Grand Cayman, and they have done nothing but rave about how clean and relaxing Barefoot Lagoon Island House was. They loved walking to Rum Point everyday for lunch, to relax, to look through their small shop, and to book a Stingray City tour.
My step-father spent many hours relaxing by the pool, while my mom
enjoyed the kayak and collecting shells near the lagoon.
I can't tell you how much it means to me to have been able to share such a wonsderful place with them. They work so hard for everything they have. It was just great to see the stress melt away and the smiles on their faces.
Oh yeah, my husband and I had smiles on our faces too!
Everyone has already decided that we want to stay at your lovely home again the next time we are blessed with a trip to Grand Cayman.
Sincerely,
Dr. Kimberly Morden

We loved Barefoot Lagoon. The area was perfect for us..close to pool and beach. Not crowded..loved ability to walk along the beach. The restaurant at Rum Point was very good. Our accommodations were perfect for us. Bright, clean, close to everything. Beautiful sunsets from the pier. Mccurley,s car rental was great and the convenience of going to grocery store on the way was ideal. We will definitely come back!!

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY WITH GOOD LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
The facilities are very nice with all amenities that could be wished for. The location on the island is excellent. The cove is quiet allowing activities such as snorkeling and kayaking. Across the street is Rum Point Wreck Bar and Grill which has a very good lunch and drinks on the beach and excellent gourmet restaurant for dinner.

TERRIFIC RENTAL FOR FAMILIES

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed on the north side of the island on 3 different occasions and always enjoy this quieter side of the island. Barefoot Lagoon-Island House is a beautiful 2-story Townhouse style condo which sleeps 6 although probably 4-5 comfortably. Second bedroom has two double beds, so not ideal for three couples but perfect for two older teens or 3-4 young children still willing to share beds. A/C unit in the second bdrm needs replacing but Mitzie (property Mgr) was very helpful during our stay to ensure we were comfortable. Mster bdrm very comfortable and bathrooms very nice. Kitchen is a little on the small side but as we do not spend a lot of time inside the house, it is more than adequate. Description states sleeps 4-6 but again suits groups of 4 better as all furnishings are more suited for four people (dining table has 4 chairs, etc.). However 4 adults with 2 younger children would be pleased with the accomodation. Convenience to Rum Point is excellent (across the street) with wave runner rentals, Sting Ray City and other excursions leaving from Rum Point. Easy distance to Kaibo Kai Grill, Over the Edge restaurant and other more secluded beaches to explore. The Lagoon at the rear of the property is beautiful especially at sunset and very quiet throughout the day. The pool was never crowded, house and area was clean and well appointed. Rental car is needed to fully explore the island and take advantage of all to see in the Grand Cayman Islands. Owner and property manager were both very helpfull throughout the rental.

AWESOME FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The location of this house doesn't get any better! Literally steps from Rum Point, and a peaceful drive away from other parts of the island. Rum Point beach was perfect for my two kids, very shallow and calm. This house had everything we needed, including a portable crib and high chair for our baby. The lagoon in the back is beautiful, and the pool is just steps out the back door. We only stayed for a week, but we wish it had been longer. We will definitely come back!

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Mike & Joy,
Well, it's the morning of our last day here at your Island House #11. I'm enjoying my last cup of coffee before we walk across the sand for one more round of jet skiing at Red Sail Sports. I cannot find enough words to properly convey the peace and tranquility we found here in your paradise. The Island House is well stocked with everything we needed, and more. The beds are big and comfortable, the TVs, air conditioning, balconies, lanai and BBQ grill were perfect! Within steps of the house we enjoyed snorkelling, kayaking, bike riding, swimming and searching out conch shells and coconuts. At Red Sail we loved the jet skis and glass-bottom boat to the sting rays, "Capt Jimmy" made sure I held a ray. Couldn't get enough of the Blackened Grilled Fish sandwich at Rum Point, and my son LOVED the Jerk Pork sandwich just as much. And of course the mudslides were yummy! It's tough to plan a vacation that's perfect for Mom & Dad as well as our 15 y.o. daughter and 20 y.o. son, but I've officially been deemed the "best vacation planner ever". Couldn't have done it without having the wonderful accommodations and amenities your Island House offered. We trekked across the island to George Town and 7 Mile Beach. The kids LOVED their Dolphin Swim, but we were delighted to get back to peaceful Cayman Kai. We got equal measure of relaxation and exhilarating activity, which was perfect for our family. Everything was so easily accessible that we felt like we did it all!! Mike, you were a delight to work with, very informative and so quick to respond to my millions of dumb questions. This is our first trip to Grand Cayman, we haven't left yet and already I'm thinking of a return visit. Before we get back to the rat-race of So. Calif. I needed to take a moment to say a heart-felt Thank You. Your home was everything as promised, we would love to stay here again!! I also need to thank you for your recommendation of McCurley's Car Rental. B.A. made it an extremely convenient no-brainier, and I'm glad we heeded your advice. Anyone considering a Cayman vacation would be wise to choose Rum Point and Island House #11.....just think, you too could be considered the "best vacation planner ever"!! Can't wait to return!!!
