About the property

2 Bedroom Townhome loaded w/ FREE amenities, BEST RATING by guests, BEACH VIEW

Imagine a retreat where you can enjoy a relaxing vacation in a luxurious setting…Cloud Nine…

Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of most other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. Guest reviews that rave about our location include, 'THE LOCATION: Perfect! this condo is situated perfectly. Step outside the front door, walk across the road (maybe 1 - 2 cars per day) and there you are at Rum Point Beach Club,' and 'The beach in the pictures is only about a 30 yard walk out the front door.”

Our 1,834 square foot townhome in Rum Point has been designed to treat you to a comfortable and memorable visit. Upon entering our townhome, you will be enveloped by superior accommodations. The townhome was renovated from top to bottom during the summer of 2012. It has been furnished with contemporary furniture and accessories to reflect the chic Caribbean style of Grand Cayman. You will also enjoy 2-car front door parking, free high speed WIFI, a stereo system, premium cable and DVD players on 4 HD televisions sets (including both bedrooms with 30+ DVD's), a Wii game system with games and the use of 2 double, 2 single kayaks, a paddle board, and 5 bicycles (4 adult and 1 child).

“Cloud Nine” is a two story townhome with living space on the first floor and sleeping quarters with en-suite bathrooms on the second floor. The downstairs boasts an open concept living space which includes the living and dining areas, a fully stocked kitchen and game room. There is a conveniently located two piece powder room on the first floor. The laundry room/pantry is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen. Our well equipped kitchen provides a great space for cooking and entertainment as it faces the open concept living area. The dining area is located in the center of the open space next to the kitchen. The living area offers plenty of seating with a full length sofa and love seat, a 39 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, movies, stereo with ipod/CD player and radio, soft lighting and accent wall with original art work. The game room offers a love seat/sofa bed, board games, movies, 32 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player and a Wii system with games.

The spacious lanai is right outside the foldable sliding glass doors adjoining the interior and exterior living spaces. You will find a vibrant outdoor dining and living area within the screened-in lanai surrounded by nature. The lanai faces the pool, dock and bioluminescent bay. The lanai provides an excellent spot to relax in the conversational lounge area, breathe in the fresh air, feel the cool breeze and watch the Caymanian parrots and other tropical birds fly by. Guests who wish to spend more time in the outdoors can enjoy their coffee and meals at the dining table in the lanai. Just a few steps out the back door, you will have access to the pool and our outdoor grill.

There are two bedrooms, each with its own separate en-suite bathroom on the second floor. You will find the bedroom amenities superior to other accommodations. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed and the second bedroom a queen sized bed and matching twin bed. Each bedroom has room darkening draperies, HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, alarm clock/radio with several soothing sound options such as flowing water, waves, forest sounds, birds chirping and more, modern solid wood furniture, calming color palettes and ocean themed paintings and prints, comfortable new bedding, new lighting system and lamps, remote control adjustable speed fan and separately zoned A/C temperature settings in each bedroom. The bathrooms have new shower and faucet fixtures, high efficiency toilets, and are finely decorated and well appointed. Each bedroom has its own exterior balcony within the screened-in lanai. The balconies face the pool, dock and bay from the perched second floor. Each balcony offers a private sitting area for you to relax.

You will have access to two double and two single kayaks to tour the calm bay at your own pace. You will enjoy a fabulous nocturnal spectacle only seen in 11 other bioluminescent bays around the world. When the lights go down, the micro-organisms in the bioluminescent bay put on a fabulous show as visitors tour the bay. As you paddle through the water, the micro-organisms illuminate leaving a shiny silvery streak of water. Your paddle will take the form of a lightsaber as you slice through the night waters. The dock is open for fishing any time of day or night in the calm bay waters.

A few steps out your front door will find you at the renowned Rum Point Beach, the most picturesque beach in Grand Cayman. The shallow and clear waters and pink/white sand of Rum Point Beach make it ideal for swimming and offers some of the finest snorkeling in the Caribbean. Rum Point is located in a protected marine park, so grab your snorkeling gear and take in the vibrant views and abundant sea life along the reef just offshore. Adults and children alike will enjoy relaxing and playing in the clear, turquoise, shallow waters. Also at Rum Point, you will find the Red Sail Sports activity center, where you can book Sting Ray City trips as well as other excursions. A host of beach toys are available for rent, including jet skis, catamaran sailboat, banana boat, snorkeling gear and more. The Wreck Bar and Rum Point Restaurant provide some of the best food and drinks on the island including the famous Mudslide, Cuban sandwich, jerk pork plate, local dishes and fine dining in the evenings. Rum Point Beach offers changing rooms, showers, hammocks, a volleyball net, picnic tables and plenty of shade under a canopy of magnificent Casuarina trees and coconut palms.

All these attributes make Cloud Nine the perfect place for your next vacation!

About Adela Parlette

My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have 2 boys, ages 11 and 15. We live in Houston, Texas. We enjoy getting away to our townhome at Rum Point as frequently as we can. Our kids enjoy telling their friends that in Grand Cayman their back yard is a bioluminescent bay and their front yard is a beach! We enjoy having friends and family visit so that we can show off our home away from home. We would love to share our island home with you while we are back in Houston, putting in time in the 'real world.'

Adela Parlette purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Adela Parlette chose North Side

My husband and I had talked about buying a property in the Caribbean since our honeymoon. Everytime we would go on vacation to an island, that conversation would come back up. But, we never pulled the trigger. Back in July of 2007, my in-laws watched the kids for a week while my husband and I went on our first vacation by ourselves since the kids were born. We went to Grand Cayman and stayed on 7 Mile Beach. The beaches were stunning and the island was absolutely paradise. Beatiful views...warm water...laid-back island atmosphere.

Around the middle of the week, we decided to rent a car and drive over to Rum Point, which we had read about online. Now, I grew up in the Caribbean and we have traveled pretty extensively to various island destinations. I have seen my share of stunningly beautiful beaches. But, let me tell you...when we got out of the car and walked around the corner of the gift shop and saw the beach at Rum Point, we were absolutely awestruck by the beauty. We had a drink at the Wreck Bar and decided to walk out to the water. The water was perfectly calm and clear as a looking glass. We were able to walk out a couple hundred feet from the shore and the water was only waist high! We began to talk about how this would be such a perfect place to come with the kids. Shallow, calm water. Nice quiet, family atmosphere. To say the least, we fell in love with Rum Point and purchased a one bedroom condominium back in 2007.

Five years later, with a teenager in the family we have outgrown the one bedroom, but not the beauty of Rum Point. In summer of 2012 we found the perfect 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome we call 'Cloud Nine.'

What makes this townhome unique

Cloud Nine offers the best of both worlds...the picturesque Rum Point Beach out your front door and a rare bioluminescent bay out your back door that you can explore on our kayaks. All the while you will find yourself in a warm, luxurious setting from which to enjoy a tropical paradise. Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of the other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. The Rum Point beach and waters are part of a government protected marine park with lots of colorful coral and abundant sea life. Right out your front door is the Rum Point Club and Red Sail Sports dive shop and activity center. While far from a wild and crazy place, the Red Sail facilities offer plenty of activity. They have a great bar and grill (excellent drinks and friendly service), a fabulous formal restaurant and a beach rental and excursion center. Right there you can rent jet skis, sail boats, banana boat, snorkling gear and more, plus book your Sting Ray City and scuba diving excursions. Most of the excursions leave right from the dock on the property. It is also a great place for the kids to find some playmates to explore the beach with! There are lots of other great restaurants nearby if you want to branch out a little. You are also about a 15 minute drive from the stunningly beautiful the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and the Mastic Trail nature hike.

Unforgettable opportunity

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with one year old granddaughter Lucy, son in law, daughter, son and husband. We needed to spend quality time in a safe neighborhood type place and found it at Cloud 9 at Rum Point. Recommend it. Starfish Point, the Blow Holes, Smith Cove, Kaibo's, the bay, the pool, the people and the kid friendly atmosphere. The owner was fabulous at giving us valuable affordable tips. Easter weekend was hopping, kayaking, biking and Rum Point families to join. Go there as grandparents, walk the pier, see and feel the quiet, calm waters. A keeper. We ate in most nights, played Poker for Cheerios, sipped on Mudslides at Rum Point. Met beautiful friends. Would return in a minute.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah, It does sound like you had an unforgettable Easter vacation. Rum Point is a very special place for all Holidays but specially for Easter. Easter Season is the time when families get together. I am not surprised that Rum Point families joined in. Island House and Rum Point Beach are favorite spots for Cayman families. I am glad that my money saving tips were helpful. You visited some of my favorite spots such as the Blow Holes and Smith's Cove. You absolutely made the most and best of your visit. I hope you are able to come back with Lucy and the rest of your family. We have families who continue to come back with their little ones. They have some fun stories of discoveries and first times (kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, swimming). Thank you for your kind words and for trusting me with your special vacation. Sincerely, Adela Parlette

Great place well kept and well kept

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a more raw island experience, than the north side is the place for you.

Just a 30 sec walk to Rum point beach...

The water on this side of the island are not as nice as 7 miles beach, but still lots of great snorkeling right of the shore line.

The place itself was very clean and well kept, and was stocked up with everything we needed.

Adela the owner was quick to response.

The place had PLENTY of towels , beach and bath, which is a huge problem for most VRBO properties.

a beautiful island house, very well located, with all amenities you can dream of

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa, in a very convenient location if you like peace, nothing is missing from the house, all possible gadgets you may need for a Summer vacation are there: bicycles, kayaks (1 & 2 people, 2 of each), board, charcoal grill, large shared pool, 4 TV sets with satellite connections, WII and an amazing number of games in a dedicated area of the house, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach linen. All is there and for you to use. Adela is super responsive, Barbara, the local expert one phone call away. We never felt left alone in this beautiful property.

And the bioluminescent laguna just in the backyard of the house is the cherry on the cake. Careful though to book in a week when the moon is not bright, or you will miss this amazing event!

One issue though: the time goes by too quickly, the one week we spent there was too fast. Anything you can do about that Adela? Thanks for a wonderful week!

Antonio, Paola & Laura

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cloud Nine couldn't have been more perfect! We had previously only been to Seven Mile Beach but have now fallen in love with Rum Point. Adela is an incredible communicator and quickly became a friend. All of her recommendations, including groceries, directions, etc, were spot on. The house itself is wonderful - we cooked all but two of our meals that week and had all the utensils, cookware, dishware that we could possibly need. Our children didn't want to leave! From riding bikes, joining impromptu beach volleyball games at Rum Point, swimming in the pool, taking the kayaks out in the bay and playing on the Wii, they had an absolutely fabulous time. By the end of the vacation, we were all trying to figure out how we could manage a move to Grand Cayman. Thank you so much, Adela; it was amazing and we can't wait to go back!

Remember, Rum Point is the best place on the island for relaxing and snorkeling. If you want to come back, I will help you plan another itinerary. There are more places and adventures that I can recommend. Best regards, Adela
