About Karen

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

Why Karen chose Cayman Islands

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.

Five wonderful years!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our fifth year vacationing at this property. It has been a wonderful experience for our family. The owner and caretaker are very prompt with any questions or concerns that may arise. The Rum Point area has much to offer without the stress of Seven Mile Beach. We highly recommend the area and this condo!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful vacation at this condo with our daughter and son-in-law and 16-year-old grandson. The location is perfect - secluded and private but walk right out to the beach. The condo is very well equipped with everything you could need including lots of beach towels and a washer/dryer. We have visited Grand Cayman before and definitely prefer the East End and definitely Rum Point! We have already booked again for next year!!! The owner is very easy to work with. Her suggestion for a rental car and shuttle worked out so well for us - picked us up at the airport and our car was waiting for us at the condo. We love to snorkel and there is a great reef right out from the condo. Lovely beach with plenty of chairs and pier. We met up with Captain Chris again this year for a sunrise trip to Stingray City and the coral reef. Amazing trip with just a few others. Also walked to Kaibo Beach for Carribean Night BBQ on the beach with a live band and dancing on the beach. Starfish beach is also nearby! I can't say enough great things about this condo, the owner, and the area!

The Retreat #31 at Rum Point

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple had a great, peaceful time staying in your condo. Your condo was great, being tucked in the ground floor and semi-secluded with a nice grassy area and a beautiful view of the water. We couldn't have asked for a better location - no foot traffic to bother us. The condo was nicely furnished and just a comfortable place to stay and relax. We have been coming to the Cayman Islands for 8 years now and have stayed at The Retreat for 4 of those years and your condo was the best yet. We will be back!

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had been to this end of the island before so knew that it is the quiet side which is what we enjoy. Visitors to Rum Point (property next to Retreat) come by boat during the day, but all is quiet by late afternoon. The condo #31 was very comfortable for us (2 couples in our 60's) and well-equipped. We had a very relaxing time just hanging out on the beach/lawn area, swimming, and snorkeling. Enjoyed the Dak Shak steps away at Rum Point for drinks where we also had lunch one day. The Monday night BBQ at Rum Point was also very good. We caught a trip with Red Sail on Sunday which went to stingray city only and not crowded, and recommend the Wed evening sunset cruise on their catamaran. We also went on a small boat with a local guy, Captain Eddie, for snorkeling and conch diving. Dinner at Over the Edge was excellent – was a nice evening so we had a table out on the deck. Tukka restaurant is a must, especially the Friday fish night - get a table on the beach. We stopped by the Reef Resort beach bar for happy hour. Also, visited the Botanic Gardens where we saw parrots and blue iguana. Hope to go back again.

Rum Point Retreat #31

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful and Laid-back

  • 5 of 5

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).
