About the property

2BR/2BA Fantasea Villa is a large waterfront villa with private pool in Cayman Kai on the quiet cove, facing due west. A cute, coral Caribbean-style home, Fantasea offers sparkling waters and quiet sunsets from the oceanfront pool and large screened porch.

-In the winter, many guests will turn off the A/C and let the breeze flow through the entire home.

-The cove and North Sound are excellent for kayaking, and the private dock allows guests to scan the shallows for turtles or eagle rays... or tie up rented watersports equipment.

-Gorgeous views of the pool and ocean from the bright, airy kitchen and living room!

Wonder private getaway! The house has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The house is the perfect island getaway. It’s on the East end of the island away from the crowded cruise ship area. We spent lots of time on the deck & screen porch watching the water. You can actually see the boats gather at Sting ray city from the porch. There are several great restaurants at that end too. But the house has everything you need to cook at home too. It took us a while to get a recommendation but a local finally told us we could purchase fresh fish & lobster tails from Over the edge restaurant. We ate at that restaurant a couple of times too. Excellent food & service.

Starfish point right around the corner. We took the 3 person kayak out for a spin around the cove. There are quite a few jellyfish that are photo synthesizing in the water that you have to be careful of if you decide to snorkel there. But Rum point offers another good alternative to snorkel that’s very close to the house.

The rental agency recommended downloading the app to use when you get there. It’s got great info and directions to the house. I highly recommend taking screen shots of the directions to the house, as the app did not work for us unless we were on Wi-Fi. Luckily we remember enough and followed the signs and maps we got from the rental car place to get us there. Their office was still under construction so we didn’t get to utilize that upon arrival.

We would highly recommend this house and will be back again.

Beautiful location, home and vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a much needed vacation for myself, my wife, son and daughter in law! And, it was indeed what we were looking for. The home was beautiful, tastefully decorated, clean and well appointed. The pool, cove, water and view surpassed any previous vacation venue! We will definitely be back!!

Great property with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We had 2 couples in our group staying for 8 days. The house was better than we expected. We had plenty of room, the furniture was comfortable, the temperature inside the house was cool, everything was in perfect working order and we had everything we needed in the house. It was also clean and there were no bugs. The view was amazing and the water lights up at night if you get in it and splash around as the house is right on the bio bay but beware of the sea lice (tiny jellyfish). They seemed to be mainly around the dock. We had Rosie come and cook for us at the house which was delicious (there is a magnet on the fridge with her number). The kitchen knives could have been sharper but we only used them on occasion.

We enjoyed going to Rum Point, and to Kaibo. Both restaurants are great. They auto-grat everywhere so be aware. We also went over to Tukka's on the East side which was a great restaurant and there seemed to be more breeze on that side.

We did the sting ray city tour from Rum Point, Starfish Point which is right down the road and the Crystal Caves but make sure you wear bug spray and take some water. It was very hot and humid in the caves.

Fantasea gave us 2 weeks in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the home - Fantasea! We rent many homes all over as we travel on vacation with our family or just the 2 of us. Fantasea was without a doubt the cleanest and one of the best locations we've experienced. And Judy and the cleaning women were great. Judy was great stopping by to introduce herself and was extremely responsive anytime we had questions or needed anything.

In so many homes, staples like toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing soap, laundry and cleaning products are not provided. It was wonderful having those items provided in Fantasea. And providing the water cooler was the absolute best. The bath and kitchen towels, pool towels and all linens were of great quality. Loved floating in the pool in the afternoon sipping on cocktails. The pool is small but served its purpose for the 2 of us. We loved making the majority of our meals at home there and then sitting at the table in the screened porch area to enjoy our meals and the beautiful views. The owners of this home really care and stay on top of maintaining this home down to spraying for bugs!

Being close to Rum Point was another bonus. We loved going there to snorkel, watch the sunsets and enjoying drinks and a lunch or two at the beach restaurant - loved the jerk chicken meal with the beans & rice, corn on the cob and cole slaw. Kaibou was nice to walk to in the mornings to grab an espresso. And seeing starfish at Starfish Point early in the mornings was fun.

Although the area is about 50 - 55 minutes from the airport, it is worth it. The area is so peaceful and away from all the hustle and bustle. Always felt safe especially seeing the local police patrolling. Nothing more peaceful and relaxing than looking out to see all the boats far off in the distance at Stringray Island and beyond that the city of Georgetown.

Locals were very helpful with places to shop for not only quality but good prices. One day when we went into Georgetown, we shopped at Cost You Less (like a Sam's Club but no membership required) and then stopped at Hurley's on the way back to the villa. Hurley's has the best and freshest produce. Fresh baked breads, sushi, freshmade pizzas and lots of fish options were our favorites. And BlackBeard Liquor store was right next store for great values.

We absolutely love Cayman and can't wait to go back again

Absolutely loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this unit in April 2015. The home is situated along the tranquil bay with a picture perfect view across the inlet, looking out to the sea. The home has the perfect layout and met all our possible needs. Less than a mile to Kaibo restaurant to the south and about a mile from Rum Point to the north. The pool, private beach and screened in porch with the killer view were the highlights to the unit. I would also like to extend a special thanks to our property manager and unit owner - who were incredibly gracious and responsive to our every need and then some. This unit is the full package. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Rum Point area.

Car: recommended

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 we do see the occasional turtle, eagle ray or tarpon swim by in the shallows!

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 (WITHIN A SHORT WALK) that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. ( )

It is from the Rum Point pier that the 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina ( 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 ( and ) 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. and offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
