Our family owned The Retreat #31 for 30 years. We range in age from 85 to 3, spanning four generations loving the Retreat.
Karen purchased this condo in 1985
It's perfect for all; toddlers to seniors, with beach shade or sun, calm waters, fantastic water life. Our ground floor condo is just steps away from it all.
Spectacular vacation!! Thank you so much for the memories. Beautiful condo, sunsets, snorkeling and our very own cooking!! Can't wait to return this March!!
My husband, 15 year old son, mother and I stayed here for a week at the end of May. There is no more perfect location, in our opinion, on the island. The condo was very clean and well stocked. The owner was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to any questions both before and during the trip. Condo is on the ground floor, only steps to the beach. It is next door the Rum Point, very convienient for lunch, dinner, drinks, and to book excursions. Even though it is next to Rum Point it is well isolated by a row of hedges. There's a grass yard as you walk out the back door of the screened in porch. My son enjoyed going out early in the morning to take pictures of the land and hermit crabs. The beach is very nice with lots of lounge chairs available.
Most importantly to us is the ocean. The water is beautiful, both above and below it. We've snorkeled quite a few places and this is definitely a favorite. We walked west to a public beach, got in and snorkeled back to the condo. We saw lots of things during these snorkels. We saw a spotted eagle ray, a nurse shark, and cuttlefish, just to name a few.
We all agree this was one of our favorite trips and we can't wait to go back to #31!
We enjoyed this condo at Rum Point. We are a family of 4, two boys ages 9 and 11. It is a beautiful setting with calm, clear, warm water and a clean, white sand beach. The condo was clean and well stocked. Lots of beach towels! There is good snorkeling just out front as well as other locations nearby. You can rent all manner of water toys right next door. Also, it is very near to the bioluminescent bay which is a real treat. It is a bit of a drive to get to the west end, which we did a couple of times for various day trips, but in the end, I enjoyed the quiet, laid back feel of Rum Point better. Make reservations for dinner, just to be safe. I recommend the Lighthouse, dock seating at sunset! Also, don't miss the sunrise trip to sting ray city out of Kaibo (we had the sandbar to ourselves).
Ground floor condo with a screened in lanai from which you can walk across the grass to the sand and sea in about 20 seconds. The condo complex (The Retreat) is right next to the Wreck Bar and Grill, the Rum Point Restaurant, and Red Sails (Stingray City trips, sunset cruises, bioluminescent bay tours, kayak and other equipment rentals). Condo complex has a nice pool and a game room for guest use, and its own stretch of beach that is separate from the Rum Point beach that is open to all. The condo is nicely furnished and has everything you think you will need. It also has everything else that you failed to realize you would need but the owner, Karen, remembered for you. If you want to get away from the craziness of Seven Mile Beach, this is the place for you. This was our second stay at #31 and hopefully not our last.
We stayed at #31 and could not have been happier. The condo is very clean, spacious, and comfortable. It felt like home. The location is absolutely fantastic! It was steps away from the beach and tranquil waters. We are familiar with Cayman Islands and this section of beach is by far the calmest we found on the island. Its great for kids- we have two. Also, being at Rum Point, we were steps away from two restaurants and the boat dock. I definitely will be back to the Retreat.
This was our first visit to the Cayman Islands and against some advice to stay on SMB (because we have 3 active sons ages 11-16) we decided to stay on the quieter side. We were all thrilled with that decision! The pictures online of the Retreat sold me--I wanted to be right on the point and walk right onto the beach--which is exactly how it was. Karen was great to work with and provided excellent information and suggestions prior to arriving. The condo itself was wonderfully clean and stocked with everything we needed and more. The third bed, made and ready for one of our boys in the second bedroom was a very nice extra touch. Having the restaurant, the wreck beach bar and red sail sports right next door was awesome and we used all of it daily. I just can't say enough about the wonderful location of the Retreat. None of use wanted to leave the point because it had everything we needed included awesome snorkeling, our own stingray and sea turtle encounters, bioluminescence in the bay, starfish beach and fun beach bbq's. Wonderful, wonderful place to stay.
My family and I have stayed at this condo for three years now. We love Grand Cayman and we love staying at this location on Rum Point. It's the perfect balance of peace and activity. The condo is well cared for and provides all the necessities required to make it an excellent stay. We highly recommend and look forward to returning next year!
