My family of ten stayed at the Great Escape in July 2014 for one week. We had three adult couples who stayed in the main house and in the cottage four female cousins aged 20, 16, 16 and 7. This house was perfect for us and we all loved it!! I cannot say enough about this house, the island, and Rum Point Beach! We used the paddle board and kayaks every day and just loved the pool area. We barbecued a few times and had whatever we needed in the kitchen. The store is about a 20 minute drive. Be advised that everything is closed on Sundays. We were met upon arrival by a nice woman who showed us around the house and gave us information we needed for the week. The beds were comfortable, the house was very clean, the grounds were beautiful. It was a perfect vacation and we cannot wait to come back to this wonderful house. My family plans on visiting again soon!! You will be very happy you rented this house in the quiet, beautiful area of Cayman Kai.
Our family of four had the most wonderful week at Great Escape. The house was perfect in every way. With its open floor plan and large bedrooms, we were very comfortable. The amenities are fantastic from the well stocked kitchen to the immense amount of beach and bath towels. Our 8 and 5 year olds loved swimming in the large L-shaped pool multiple times a day. The outdoor dining table next to the water was our favorite spot for dinner. This side of the island is much quieter than the Seven Mile Island, which we loved. We walked to Rum Point almost every day to go to the beach, grab lunch or rent jet skis. I would recommend stocking up on groceries at the larger grocery store near the airport so that you can just relax. You will never want to leave.
This home is located a few hundred feet down the road from Rum Point, so the main beach is within <5 minute walk from house. The street in front is a very quiet road, as is the bay behind the house. One can walk a considerable distance out into bay across the road from front of house and still be only waste deep in the water. A very tranquil location. The house is more appropriately a Villa, with very large rooms, fantastic front and back porch and the bedrooms very comfortable. Everything in the house works. It was a perfect fit with room left over for 6 adults and 2 small children. Pool is great for children as it is mostly in the 3' depth range. It is located several miles from other amenities, like stores and gas, but one goes to Rum Point to get away, not be in the middle of the crowds and action over at 7 Mile.
A very clean home, with just about every appliance and kitchen item on hand, plenty of towels for bath and beach were provided.
Only a few items in need of repair, if one wishes to be really picky.... None of this distracted from the stay in the least, but being a handyman I notice things.... Patio door is sticky, which the extra pull required to move door has worn out the handle, hard for 4-5 year olds to pull open. Screen to right of outside patio door is torn from frame, so insects could get in, but didn't notice many anyway. Some door hinges have nails for pins so door is off center a tad for closing easily (main bath in center of house). Microwave door hits framing, it should be lifted just a bit. It can be confusing trying to find all the light switches for all the outside lighting - when wishes to really be picky when setting mood lighting. Like I said this is really picky stuff.
The house is great, the location is great, couldn't ask for more. Oh, and be ready for constant bird singing. The most difficult decision is where to set to relax and enjoy the views.
We just returned from a week at this beautiful property. I cannot say enough about the villa. It was gorgeous and the pictures don't do it justice. We had a group of 6 adults and 2 kids under the age of 5. The kids LOVED the huge pool - it provided a really nice alternative to the beach. The lagoon side was gorgeous as well with plenty of sand to play in and shady spots to just sit and relax- it is just steps to the beach too. The property is just lovely with plenty of places to sit outside and inside for dining with a group. We were steps from Rum Point beach and that was really nice as well when we wanted to be in a less secluded environment.
We would highly recommend this property if you are thinking of staying on this side of the island. We really felt that we had the best location in relation to getting to the beaches and the restaurants. The property itself is just gorgeous and was way beyond our expectations. Plenty of room for everyone - the bedrooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is large and was great for a group as well.
We cannot wait to come back again!
