Gorgeous 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home With Beach Out Both the Front and Back Doors

Away from busy Seven Mile Beach, with a peaceful palm-lined cove directly out the back door and Rum Point Beach steps away from the front door, Starboard Kai has the perfect location for your vacation. Whether you prefer to relax by the pool or on the beach, stroll in the sand or join the activities of Rum Point, we have it all.

Starboard Kai, completely renovated & refurnished in late 2013, features a lovely open concept living and dining area, an office / reading nook, fully-equipped kitchen, powder room, and a large, beautiful, 2 story screened-in lanai on the main floor. The lanai is furnished with wicker dining furniture as well as a relaxing conversation set. This will be one of your favourite places to spend time.

Two spacious bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and private balcony, are located on the second floor. The master bedroom boasts a comfortable pillow-top king bed, while the guest room has two pillow-top queen beds. High quality linens, bath and beach towels are provided for your stay.

Starboard Kai has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. A lovely pool for the exclusive use of the guests of the Island Houses is located on the manicured tropical grounds, a short stroll across the beach from the lanai. Starboard Kai's two bikes, three kayaks (two singles and one double) provide unique ways to explore the area and its many beaches. Tranquil Sand Pointe Cove, as well as the clear turquoise waters of Rum Point provide amazing snorkeling venues. During the day take a wonderful trip to Stingray City, which departs steps from your door, or at night discover the rare bio-luminescence of the cove in your own kayak, provided for the exclusive use of Starboard Kai guests.

A great selection of casual and fine dining restaurants are nearby for those times you would rather not make use of the wonderful, fully-equipped kitchen and dining facilities at Starboard Kai.

About Janice & Mike Benson

We are Canadians who enjoy the occasional escape from our long winters. Born and raised in Southern Ontario, we have now lived in Ottawa for over 20 years working and raising our two children (and Golden Retrievers).

Janice & Mike Benson purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Janice & Mike Benson chose Grand Cayman

We have traveled extensively in the Caribbean, fell in love with Cayman, and decided to make this island our home away from home. Having settled on the island, the next step was to explore all areas of Grand Cayman and see which suited us best. Hands down, it was Cayman Kai with its beautiful beach and layback atmosphere. The location of the Island House is perfect, with the tranquil cove for kayaking out back, a lovely pool surrounded by palms and spectacular Rum Point with all of its amenities steps away.

What makes this townhome unique

Recently renovated, Starboard Kai has every amenity to make your vacation enjoyable. We take pride in our home and hope you enjoy your stay. Enjoy the unobstructed view of Rum Point Beach from the large front windows and the beach and cove out the back. You are literally sandwiched in-between beaches!!

Starboard Kai, and our Caymanian property manager, are receiving rave reviews from our guests! Our property manager is very responsive to our guests' needs and will do everything possible to ensure a stress free vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Home from our fabulous vacation at Cayman Kai and I just wanted you to know how much we loved our stay.



The island house was perfect and really nicely done. The location right on the beach was wonderful, and Rum Point was such a nice beach.



Everything in the house was so well done and ready for us, including the water foot bath out the back. The kitchen was really well stocked with cooking gear.



We loved the big porch and large windows.



The location is a bit far from most restaurants, but we did love Kaibo - wish we had known about the full moon dinner....next time !



Mitzi was great - she stopped in our second day and was kind enough to make Christmas reservations for us at The Grand Old House , where we had an exceptional dinner. She was a gem. She even drove us to town one day when the buses weren't running and my husband and son had taken the car to go diving in town. I offered to pay for gas, but she declined.



I have just forwarded the website to a friend of mine here in Portland who is looking for a warm weather vacation this winter, so you may hear from him.



Thanks so much and Happy New Year.

I can not say enough about the place we stayed at! The place was exactly as described on the site. There was a small problem with the air conditioner but once I called the manager, she had someone out there immediately and the problem was fixed. The weather was perfect, facilities was excellent! I would recommend this place to everyone.

What a wonderful place. This was our first time to Grand Cayman. We chose the Rum Point area after friends told us how much they loved it--and they were right. Luckily we chose Starboard Kai as our "home away from home". It is ideally situated at the end of a cove, famous for the night bio-luminescence display (people pay $50 CI to see) that you get to witness every night while kayaking through the waters with one of the 3 kayaks (one double) made available by the owners. On the other side (out the front door), you cross a quiet, small street and you are on the beach at Rum Point. Check out the site for all the fun things to do.
Starboard Kai has just been totally renovated with great taste and all the amenities. The owners are so thoughtful. Everything you need to make you comfortable is there-from guide maps and info books, a well appointed kitchen, to a comfortable lanai to relax in. It is obvious that the owners have paid attention to details and it shows, not only in the beautiful decor, but the relaxing, ahaaa, feeling you get as soon as you walk in the door.
There are even flat screen Tv's in every bedroom and the family room to keep children and Olympic events addicted husbands happy!
A wonderful place to start exploring all Grand Cayman and Rum Point has to offer.
There is lots to do. From snorkelling off Rum Point Beach (I swam with a a Hawksbill tortoise, saw a stingray, a lion fish and lots of other reef fish), to kayaking to Starfish Point (amazing big beautiful orange starfish), diving, visiting local sites (Turtle Farm, Car Museum) and walking 7 Mile Beach. Check out Stingray City.
We can't wait to come again.

Owner's Response: Thank-you so much for your wonderful review Katherine. We are so thrilled that you enjoyed all of our favourite activities while in Grand Cayman. The snorkeling and diving are second to none, and Rum Point is a very special place. It is also so rewarding for us to hear that guests find our "home away from home" meets their every need and provides them with a "5-Star" vacation retreat. We do hope that you will return for another visit soon. Thanks again, Janice (owner Starboard Kai)

Gorgeous interior matched by even more beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo in November 2013. The renovations had just been completed and the place is outstanding!

The main floor kitchen is completely upgraded and the lanai provides a wonderful setting for early morning coffee overlooking the cove. The two bedrooms upstairs are large and each have great washrooms attached.

The condo comes with multiple kayaks and bikes which we made use of everyday. Cycling to Starfish Point and kayaking around the cove were great ways to see all the beautfiul island has to offer. The condo pool is also a great place for an afternoon or evening dip.

We really enjoyed the location of the condo - being steps from the action of Rum point was fantastic - the beach is pristine and a great place for some snorkeling. We walked down the beach to the end point and spent a lot of time there completely alone taking in the sun and scenary.

Nearby there are maybe great restaurants - you must check out "Over the Edge" - we went 3 times in one week!

The only downside is it is a little far from the night life in Seven Mile beach and Georgetown but there are many things to do at night at Kaibo bar or Rum Point.

I would not hesitate to recommend this condo for a wonderful relaxing vacation with your family or friends - we are already booked in for another week next year.

Owner's Response: Jennifer, I couldn't ask for a better review. Thank-you so much for taking the time to share your vacation experience. We agree whole-heartedly that Rum Point is a very special place and fantastic for a vacation with family or friends. It sounds like you found my "secret" spot on Rum Point beach. I am always amazed that you can find a secluded stretch - even during the busy season in February. I see that you have booked again with us this year. We look forward to welcoming you back and offering you our "return guest" incentive. Thanks again for writing a review. Warm Regards, Janice (owner Starboard Kai)

Excellant adventure

  • 5 of 5
I'll start this review saying that the owners of the property were so nice, helpful and give us so much good info. about the island, the property and things to do they could have written a guide book. They were super. The property was exactly like the pictures and the location was better than expected. Everything in the house was super clean and comfortable. Great beds and a really nice kitchen. It was so easy to walk across the street to the white sandy beach and enjoy the little snack shack. We used the Red Sail activity hut to book jet ski tours, the glass bottom boat to Sting Ray city and for a couple scuba dives. It was so convenient and the staff were so friendly and helpful it really made for a good time. We enjoyed many of the fine restaurants the owners suggested. We also made use of the barbeque and had dinners in the wonderful screened veranda looking at the lagoon out the back. We loved our stay

Totally enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely house. The owners have recently refurbished it with comfort and taste in mind. The master bed is probably the most comfortable in GC! There are lots of details on other websites regarding the activities on GC and we have enjoyed them on previous visits. They have not disappointed,(Stingray City wow!). This vacation was about a more laid back approach and we found it in bucket-loads. Totally chilled out - our most exciting things (and magical!) were cycling to Starfish Point early morning for a swim, and enjoying a quiet sunset cocktail at the Wreck Bar at about 6.30. The remainder of the day passed in the enjoyment of the beautiful surroundings of Starboard Kai. Always something to see.

Car: necessary

Located on the north side of Grand Cayman in the upscale Cayman Kai community. Starboard Kai is steps away from Rum Point Beach out the front door and directly on the beach of Sand Pointe Cove out the back door. You are literally sandwiched in-between beaches!

You could easily spend your entire vacation enjoying the Rum Point area but we recommend renting a car, exploring and experiencing everything Grand Cayman has to offer. For your convenience, Starboard Kai has a private driveway with parking for 2 cars steps away from the front door.

Nearest Restaurants:

Directly across the road at Rum Point. The Wreck (Beach) Bar & Grill (home of the Mudslide) & Monday night beach BBQ and the Rum Point Restaurant for fine dining.

Other Local Restaurants:

Kaibo Yacht Club a very short distance down the road (with the Luna del Mar - full moon dinner and the Tuesday night Beach BBQ) & Over the Edge (minutes away by car) and slightly further Tukka, Morritt's, the Italian Kitchen, the Lighthouse & many more.

Distances to major attractions.

Rum Point Beach:

Directly across the road with trips available to Stingray City and Stingray Sandbar, snorkel trips and evening cruises, wave runner & paddle board rentals, beach volley ball, hammocks, lounge chairs, and more! A short walk down the beach and you can find a secluded area to enjoy the white sand and calm turquoise waters that make Cayman famous.

Snorkeling & Diving:

Great snorkeling can be experienced directly across the road at Rum Point plus multiple other locations a walk, bike ride or kayak paddle away. Dive trips leave right from the Rum Point Pier.

Bioluminescent Cove:

Right out your back door is an amazing phenomenon you can experience on a dark night using the kayaks provided by Starboard Kai. (Those staying at Seven Mile Beach pay $50 each for this trip - it is yours for free!)

Mastic Trail:

5 miles away, hike into the two million year old mastic reserve (on your own or sign-up with a guide). A nice alternative tourist experience.

Botanic Park (Queen Elizabeth II):

9 miles away, the park is home to Grand Cayman's Blue Iguana - found nowhere else in the world, and many beautiful trees, plants and flowers, ponds, birds, etc.

East End:

12-15 miles away, where you can discover more great restaurants, beaches, kite boarding, snorkeling & diving.

Pedro St. James Castle:

19 miles away is a wonderful historic site featuring traditional West Indian architecture.

Seven Mile Beach, Georgetown, & Cruise Ships:

28 miles away you will find restaurants, duty free shopping, lovely beach, snorkeling & diving.

The Turtle Farm:

33 miles away you can spend the day - lots to see and do with the feature attraction being the Green Sea, Kemps Ridley & Loggerhead turtles. Also see sharks, crocs, fish, birds, indigenous plants & trees, traditional Caymanian buildings, and enjoy the snorkeling lagoon & water slide. While in the area check out the 'Cracked Conch' Bar & Restaurant complete with amazing snorkeling from their wharf.
