Cottage-Style 3BR Just for Fun in Cayman Kai is cute, convenient, cozy and offers a HUGE freshwater pool/spa as well as full-width screened atrium, dock and outdoor "Tiki-style" shower facility. Formerly two attached two-bedroom homes, Just for Fun has been renovated and offers a spectacular pool, lovely kitchen, and a large screened-in atrium that’s perfect for lounging or entertaining. The Rum Point Club is a two-minute walk away, so guests can pop out for watersports, drinks, lunch or dinner.
The charming, fresh Caymanian cottage has a full, modern kitchen with all the standard appliances, dishware, cookware, and cutlery. Whether guests prefer to dine in the air conditioning or al fresco in the screened atrium, there are tables indoors and out, seating six and eight respectively.

This was our second time to Caymen, after a day visit from a cruise two years ago. We weren't sure where we wanted to stay, but decided against Seven Mile Beach area because of the crowds. The North Side seemed to get good reviews, so we gambled and it payed off. Overall, I loved Grand Cayman and the house was a great home base from which to explore.
Points on the house location.
1. Great location on quiet side of the island. Virtually no traffic and very peaceful.
2. Construction was going on across the street. It didn't bother us much and we got a discount because of it.
3. Rum Point Club down the block. I wasn't super impressed with it. The swimming area was ok. There are better beaches on the island. The restaurant and bar were super expensive and the food was mediocre at best. But you can book excursions to snorkel or go to Sting Ray City there. That was convenient.l
4. The house is actually on a bay, not the ocean. It was fine, but we couldn't really swim there. There were jelly fish in the bay while we were there. My kids did kayak though. We tried to see the Bioluminescence at night, but weren't lucky enough. Not sure if it was the timing or what.
5. We were a quick five minute drive to Starfish Point which was a nice beach.
6. There is no grocery store nearby. There is a place called Chisolms about 5 - 10 minutes away, but the prices were really high there. Stop on the way in at the corner of Hirst and Shamrock. There is a decent IGA there.
7. You'll need to plan a couple of day trips to go over to the more touristy things on the other side of the island. There are some beaches over there definitely worth checking out (Cemetery Beach was a favorite).
Points on the house:
1. Very clean.
2. Great pool. Very well kept. This was awesome for the kids.
3. Had outside showers for when we got back from the beach so we didn't have to track in all of the sand.
4. Kitchen is kind of stocked. I've done other VRBO rentals with better kitchen equipment. We could have used some sharp knives for fileting fish (or at least a sharpener).
5. The living room furniture isn't that conducive to family gatherings. We wanted to watch movies a few nights and it was a little uncomfortable.
6. The beds and bedding were all fine. Again - everything was clean.
7. We had enough towels, but did have to launder them a few times. Mostly that's because my kids have an issue with hanging up their towels.
All in all - I would recommend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was ample room for all six of us, and the pool was roomy enough for all of us to enjoy. The screen-in porch was a lifesaver for our evening chats as it protected us from the mosquitos while allowing us to enjoy the environment of the bay. We had such fun at night stirring the water with an oar from the kayaks to see the luminescent plankton in the bay.
The Rum Point Club was just steps away and they helped us pull off a wonderful surprise birthday party for one of the girls in our group. They are probably still talking about the private steel drum concert in the Wreck Bar and the flowers that adorned the table (and us) and the gourmet cake (all of which the catering manager transported herself from the other side of the island). A great place for a meals, drinks, music or water sports. While the villa is a bit of a drive to Seven-Mile Beach and downtown, we preferred having a private pool and quiet time compared to the activity of the more populated part of the island.
There were so many quaint restaurants we found on our travels to other parts of the island, and EVERY ONE of the people we met on the island were the most friendly we've ever encountered. Charming island, charming people, gorgeous scenery!
The property manager was always a phone call away for questions and was very helpful. We would have preferred having a few more towels for our group to avoid laundry chores, but other than that, the villa was well-stocked and clean. She probably would have provided extra towels had we asked. Loved having a free phone to call the U.S. and another for island calls.
We recently had the pleasure of staying in “Just for Fun” out on Rum Point. I can’t imagine a more relaxing vacation venue. The location was fantastic, right there on the cove, with the ocean just across the street. It was water, sky, clouds, palm trees, and more water. We really appreciated that we were far from town, and, yet, there were great dining and eating spots within easy walking and biking distance. The house was very comfortable, organized, and well laid out-- very much like being at home which added to the ease of our stay. We look forward to our next visit to Just for Fun!
We came from eastern Europe and having to travel from such long distances, we plan our vacations carefully. This one was an epic experience for our family. The privacy of the villa gave us a complete escape to enjoy ourselves together. Yet the convenience of being able to walk to nearby restaurants on the beach gave us an opportunity to meet others and have a great time. We particularly liked Rum Point which is a less than 2min. walk across the street is a casual yet beautiful bar/restaurant experience. My husband especially loved the different local rum cocktails. My favorite place was the nearby Kaibo restaurant where they have live music and on certain days of the week all you can eat barbecue buffet. We always love coming back to our own place after a long day and relaxing in the hammock by our private pool.
We loved our vacation! Without realizing it, this island beach house is located right on one of the few bio-bays in the world! A highlight of our island stay, was being able to kayak at night right off our own private beach and see the bioluminescence light up off our paddles. One of the boys jumped in, and it was amazing seeing the blue bright fire-y light show he created swimming around in the bay. We are definitely coming back and bringing our friends.
I’ve been visiting the Cayman islands for over 15 years, and Just For Fun is the place I look forward to staying most! We love how it’s fresh and updated with all the conveniences we’re used to at home...Not to mention having your own private pool and beach! The free wifi was great to be able to Skype, and it was cool the house has a phone that makes free calls back to the states. It's was a great island experience
The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The cove-front homes in “Cayman Kai” (within Rum Point) offer calm serene water for docking a rental boat, permitting charter captain pick-up or just safe shallow water for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove (rum point is too nice by comparison) —the water is shallow and has a softer bottom and there is no reef here for fish life...but At 3BR Just For Fun...the best white sand beach is literally right out the front door. You get the best of both worlds at Great Escape; a private backyard, pool and boat dock access...as well as proximity to the Rum point Club...AND a perfect beach across the street. The beaches are flat white barefoot sand.
There is usually little breeze here to speak of. Many homes in Cayman Kai offer a screened porch. The big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. (www.rumpointclub.com ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the www.redsailcayman.com 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina (www.kaibo.ky). Just a great neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas. Click our map on the home page. Lastly…about 20 minutes east we have (2) large resorts in the east end (www.morritts.com and www.thereef.com ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a coffee/pastry shop). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. www.tortugadivers.com and www.whitesandwatersports.com offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
