About Karen

Our family owned The Retreat #31 for 30 years. We range in age from 87 to 2, spanning four generations loving the Retreat.

Karen purchased this condo in 1985

Why Karen chose North Side

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Retreat at Rum Point #31

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat at Rum Point #31 is amazing. It was everything Karen said it would be and more. She was a delight to work with. The condo has spectacular views of the ocean. We snorkeled every day and saw an amazing array of fish and sea life. Having the Wreck Bar and Restaurant next door was a bonus. We used Red Sail Sports to rent Waverunners and took their tour to Sting Ray sand bar and then snorkeled on the outer reef. I will definitely go back and rent the same condo.

We enjoyed our stay in the condo. It was so close to the beach and had a great beach view from the condo's patio, living room, and master bedroom. We vacationed here with my in-laws and with my daughter and her husband, so the age range of 28 - 84. We all thought it was great. The closeness of the beach made it easy for my in-laws to get out to it easily. There was also plenty of shade for them. There was good snorkeling right in front of the condo on a little strip of reef, and more advanced snorkeling farther out. Rum Point is right next door for eating and drinking options, but it is quiet at the retreat. We did a trip to Stingray City and snorkeling with Captain Eddie from Ocean Life charters. He picked us up right at the Rum Point dock. We just had to walk outside and up the dock, which was so easy. We also enjoyed going to starfish point which is just up the road. We saw the meteor shower while we were there, and it was great, with no light pollution to diminish it. Great stargazing, great sunsets, nighttime walks on the pier, hermit crabs, regular crabs, colorful fish. It is a fantastic location.

The condo was nicely decorated, and the beds and fold-out couch were quite comfortable. We had trouble making the two twins into a king bed. I think they are just 2 twins; we put them side by side - no way to hook them together. The kitchen had everything we needed with plenty of plates, glasses, etc. All appliances worked well. We had problems with the kitchen light not working, but after contacting Barbara, she did bring us some new light bulbs and we replaced them and then it worked fine. There were plenty of beach towels and bath towels. Having a washer/dryer was great. There is an outside shower just in front of the condo to rinse off before coming inside. There is a nice swimming pool surrounded by palm trees (and sometimes crabs), but we only used it once. There is exercise equipment but they've gotten rid of the foosball and ping pong table.

This is a lovely condo in a lovely location. There are plenty of things to do, or you can just chill on the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back!

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.
