Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

"U-Kai-lele" is a 2nd floor 2bed/2bath, sleeps 6. Beachfront in Cayman kai. Screened in patio centrally located on complex with best views of the beach. Minutes to Rum Point. Kaibo Yacht Club Bar & Restuarant with reasonably priced food beachside or a fine dining experience on the upstairs balcony. Quiet complex for escaping it all. We recently bought this place after wanting a spot on this side of the island for 20 years. This is where the affluent Caymanians go to escape. This is also our vacation home, so extra care has been given to make this a great, comfortable, hassle free experience for every member of the family. We like to go up on weekends, watch the kids play in the pool and on the beach from our balcony. In the evenings we sit out watching the Caribbean Sunsets, while blending margaritas, and BBQing fresh fish, kids are inside playing games, or watching DVD's/cable. Steps to easy dining, drinks, and watersports. Extremely safe and friendly environment for everyone. Our young teenage girls walk the beach and go to lunch hassle free.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It's been a few days since we got back from our trip to your wonderful condo. Just wanted to say thank you, it was beautiful. Your unit was our home away from home. It had everything we needed and more. The kayaks were great. We used them everyday. Having two twin kayaks really made things easy for us to go out as a family, thank you for making that happen. We will definitely be back and how to stay at your unit again.

Thanks again,

Great Condo in Kaibo

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay in Kaibo U-kai-lele. Condo has all the amenities needed. Clean and nicely decorated. Gave us a very homey beach feel. Great value for the money. Only things missing were life vests (for going out on kayak, but we were able to borrow from another unit) and beach umbrella that seems to have been taken by another guest. Also some of the kitchen pans/utensils could use updating as they are very old and worn out. The light on the balcony is also out, but we used candles and it made for nice romantic evenings.

You will definitely need a car to get into Georgetown as it's a good 45 minute drive and the beach you're on isn't very nice. It's on the marina side. Much nicer beaches around the island. Make sure you check out Smith's Cove if you like a quieter, smaller beach, which is super gorgeous. We totally fell in love with the island and will definitely return, but it will likely be closer to Seven Mile Beach next time. All in all a fabulous stay though and Mabel the owner is very easily accessible by email. Thank you so much for a memorable trip!

Very Nice Condo and area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at U-Kai-Lele! The condo has pretty much everything you need, and felt very cozy. The pool is really nice and a must when it is humid. The owners are gracious to allow guests to use the double kyak, and also the paddle board. It is a great location for paddle boarding. We were not able to get the kayak to the bioluminescent bay like other guests have done because our rental car did not have a roof rack and was too small for the kayak to be loaded in the car - need the roof rack for that. We enjoyed the marina and restaurant next door - they have a buffet once a week, and it was very good. I think the larger grocery stores are on the other side of the island. We never wanted to take the time to drive back over there because we came in on Sunday when they are closed, so we went to a smaller store on the East End that was about 7 miles away. Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo - our family had a great time!!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo overlooking the pool and beach. It's well secluded yet right by everything. Kaibo right next door. Rum Point and Starfish are only a couple minutes away by bike or car (20-30min walk). Took the kayak and paddle board over to Starfish Point a couple times as well! The owners have thought of everything. There are all kinds of supplies stocked throughout the unit (condiments, otc medicine, bath products, flashlights, etc.) You'll never run out of things to do. We had an amazing trip! Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. As we live on island this is our beach retreat, and we try very hard to make it comfortable for everyone. From little babies to big babies. We want our guest to feel the magic that we feel every single time we are there. Can't wait to have you back!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great location away from the crowds of Seven Mile Beach. If you want to relax, this is the place. The condo was excellent and just as it was described and photographed. The condo DVD collection was extensive (kids and adult) and a great surprise. The condo village was relatively quite also but on Saturday night there was a band next door at the Kaibo Bar that played until midnight and Wednesday night until 9pm. Best bet is to buy groceries in George Town for best selection. My wife was quite surprised at the Kirks grocery of the wide gluten free food selection. We hung out mostly at the nearby Rum Point beach which was great except for the high priced cocktails. Free lounge chairs and water and very clean bathrooms. We did the sting ray city tour from there with Red Sail Sports and had a good time. The condo was well stocked with everything you normally have at home and was very comfortable. It is the best located condo in the whole phase. We will be back someday again. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place.

Fabulous Break at U-Kai-Lele

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to thank you for our wonderful staycation in your beautiful holiday home. We could not have had a better time. The apartment was just like a home away from home and we were very comfortable there. The location is beautiful. The children (and adults!) loved the beach and the pool. It was very peaceful, we had the whole place to ourselves every morning. We also loved using the kayak, that was a real bonus. It was brilliant to be able to stroll along the beach to the Yacht Club for lunch. You have thought of everything in terms of extra little touches and they were very much appreciated. Thank you for a fantastic break, we would definitely come back again!
