We were first time visitors the Grand Cayman but have travelled extensively as a Family all over the World. We booked 2 weeks in August hoping to find somewhere hoping to keep 2 teenage Daughters and a Son of 10 years entertained, but also give my wife and I some relaxation. A Car rental is essential for Rum Point, we were collected from the Airport by McCurleys as part of their rental Car deal, would recommend this but check the Car is right hand drive before you book. They stop off at a Supermarket en-route to the Condo which is very helpful, particularly if you arrive on Saturday as ALL shops are closed on Sunday. When we arrived at the Condo we immediately knew we had picked the best positioned Condo at The Retreat. It is the closest one to the Ocean and has amazing views from 2 sides plus a completey private sundeck off the 3rd floor master suite. The Condo is a credit to its owners and is filled with tasteful furnature of high quality. The kitchen has every appliance you will ever need, the cookware is of a very high standard again way better than you will normally find in a rental property. There are many inflatables floats stored on the patio including a 3 man boat with paddles. There is also 4 sets of Snorkle gear etc. There is no need to bring beach towels as these are also provided. There are many DVD's and books around should you have a rainy day or fancy a night in. The management office at the Retreat are extremely helpful and always seem to be around if you need advice or need a light bulb etc. This Condo feels much more like a private residence than a rental and we feel extremely lucky to have spent 2 weeks in paradise. We eat in and out with the children and would recommend the lighthouse, over the edge, kaibo club and rum point itself all well priced and the children were made welcome. We have no doubt in recommending the destination and hope to return in the future.
Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children, romantic getaway.
My family just returned from a week in Grand Cayman, and this rental was the perfect location for us. We are a family of seven (three couples and a 7 month old) and we had plenty of room. There is one room with two twin beds which is probably better suited for kids, but with each bedroom having its own bathroom the privacy was paramount. The AC kept us cool at night,and during the day we opened slid back the wall of sliding glass doors to allow the breeze to flow through the unit.
Breakfast on the upstairs patio was a great way to start the day. The views were breathtaking, and the convenience to rum point and and the local restaurants made accommodating all six of us easy.
Gigi, our contact, was very helpful and provided a pack-n-play and highchair, and was available to answer questions via email. The wifi was good and easy to connect to.
We had a little bit of difficulty finding The Retreat at Rum Point upon arrival, but that might be because we are so used to relying on GPS old fashioned directions were difficult, especially when driving on the left side of the road.
We would definitely stay here if we go back.
When you see the pictures you wonder if it will be as nice as it looks in the pictures. Well It is. This place is amazing. A suggestion. Stock up at the supermarket before you get there. The market it 25 minutes away. There are great restaurants nearby and Rum Point Beach is steps away. You cannot beat the view.
The view from the deck is where you will want to be for the rest of you life. Clean and nicely equipped. Great snorkeling nearby. Great find.
We recently stayed here for a week long family vacation. There were 7 of us total (ages 3 yrs to 60yrs) and had more than enough room. We arrived in the evening and found a delicious Tortuga Rum Cake as well as a booklet on the Cayman Islands for us. The condo is decorated/furnished beautifully and has everything you need while on vacation. You can leave your beach towels, snorkel gear and beach toys at home as there are plenty there for everyone to use. Since we arrived after the sun had set, we didn't get to see the amazing views until we woke up the next morning. All three bedrooms had a view of the ocean!! I was worried the beach would be crowded but it wasn't at all! There were plenty of spots to choose from, whether you wanted direct sun or complete shade! The water was breathtaking with the most beautiful shades of blue I have ever seen! To the far right of the beach, there was a rocky bottom entrance which was perfect for the snorkelers in the group. The rest of the beach had a sandy bottom which was perfect for my two small children. We did eat out at the neighboring restaurant one evening and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was fantastic! We ventured away from Rum Point for one day during our visit. We spent that day visiting Turtle Farm and Dolphin Discovery. I recommend doing both of these. On our last full day, we took the glass bottom boat to Stingray City. It was an unbelievable experience!
All the people that we met while at Rum Point, whether they were vacationers or Islanders, were so friendly. It was very hard to leave to come back home. We hope to return soon!
We have just returned from a week at this property and it was everything we could have hoped for! The condo is beautifully appointed, spacious, and - most importantly - very clean. Rum Point is an ideal spot for a family vacation. The beach is just steps away from the door, there's screened in porch and a roof deck with great views of the water. The kids had a great time swimming and snorkeling in the calm shallow waters of the bay, and when they were feeling more adventurous we walked down the beach on the ocean side to snorkel the reef - and were treated to views of just about every ocean creature that we could imagine. We were travelling with extended family and did a lot of cooking in the condo - all the gadgets and gizmos we needed in the kitchen were there, and there was plenty of room to host all 13 of us for dinner between the kitchen, dining area, and screened porch. There was also a wide variety of snorkel equipment in the condo. Every evening we sat out on the beach and watched the spectacular sunset. The office staff were great - whether it was printing off boarding passes or coming through with a first aid kit when we needed it. The bar next door was a fun place to go for lunch or a quick drink. Although you would never have to leave the Rum Point area to have a great time, we did take a day to go into Georgetown for more snorkeling and a little shopping, and we took the catamaran trip to Stingray City which we set up with the friendly people at the dive shop next door. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives and hope to have a chance to stay there again ourselves.
Our family stayed here for my parents 50th anniversary. We had adults, teenagers and young children and everyone had plenty to do and thoroughly ennjoyed their stay. This unit is spectacular! Plenty of room, lots of amenities and beautiful views. The gorgeous beach is just steps away and their are a few shade trees so you can duck out of the sun if you need to. Several of us are hard core snorklers and we traveled to manyl places on the island and also went out on one of the tours. However, the marine park just off the beach is as good as anything else we found, and it is right there. Next door is a restaurant, bar and snack shack and you can get just about anything there from fine dining to a burger, all good. We stayed a week and had no issues. The on-site staff and housekeepers were friendly and helpful and we wanted for nothing. I can't imagine why anyone would stay anywhere else, everything you need is right here! We will tell our friends and we will be back!
I'm not sure why there are not more reviews of this property, because it is a fantastic vacation home. Located at Rum Point, just next door to Red Sail, the Wreck Bar (IMP with the best mudslides on the island), and the Rum Point restaurant, Retreat #30, was a "home away from home" for our family. We were two families traveling together for a total of 8, and this condo, was completely spacious, and very CLEAN. Two of the kids slept on a blowup mattress, that even had a head board on it. Loved it. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a coffee table book of the island and a rum cake from the famous Tortuga, compliments of the Fowlers. Nice touch. All the bedrooms were large, including the master bedroom, which was located up the spiral staircase, and occupied the entire 2nd floor. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare a meal. There are Weber grills on the property and there was plenty of charcoal left in the condo for use. In addition, there were plenty of beach towels, fins, masks, snorkels, floats, and even a blow-up boat, that the kids enjoyed for hours. The highlight of Retreat #30, is the view. We enjoyed all our meals on the screened in porch. Another bonus, there are plenty of lounge chairs so you do not have to wake up at the crack of dawn to claim your spot. Someday we hope to return to Retreat #30, to enjoy this fantastic property again. A few tips, rental car is a must, best grocery shopping Fosters in Savannah (40 minutes). Bring water shoes. Skip the BBQ dinner at Kaibo, maybe go for drinks/burger. We enjoyed a great meal at the pink restaurant next door, I think it is only open Thurs-Sunday. If you want a great deep sea fishing charter go with Jon at Slackem Charters, we caught a 200+ lbs blue marlin, and for diving Frontiers on the east end was awesome.
