About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Moon Glow is a 2 bedroom oceanfront home in Rum Point along the north coast. With cute, sunny interiors that capitalize on the ocean views, sandy beach, and oceanfront sun deck, Moon Glow is a great beach retreat for small families.

Excellent snorkeling awaits you just steps off the sun deck. We advise guests to wear pool shoes or fins when you go out exploring. Many of our repeat guests enjoy Moon Glow's proximity to Rum Point. From off the deck, guests can jump into the shallow water with their snorkel gear on letting the slow current carry them to the Rum Point Club for a wonderful lunch before walking back along the sandy beach.

Moon Glow sleeps 6 guests (4 adults maximum) across a master king suite, twin bedroom, and pull-out queen sofa in the living area. The living room comes furnished with a comfy couch set, flat screen TV, and stereo. Both bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows for breathtaking views of the beach and ocean.

A modern kitchen comes equipped with standard appliances and stocked with dishware, utensils, cookware, and cutlery. Guests can dine indoors with seating for 6 just off the kitchen, or grill outdoors on the patio and enjoy al-fresco dining with seating for 4.

Moon Glow: Oceanfront Private Villa in Rum Point with Excellent Snorkeling
average rating of 4.7916665 based on 24 reviews

Great location and view if want quieter side of island. Our family loved it.

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck, private beach, and access to great snorkeling was the best part. We wanted to be near Rum Point and Kaibo, our favorite spot on the island. Way more quiet than SMB, if that is what you want. After a few days, will run out of restaurants close by, but there are other interesting places to explore by driving.

The kayak at the house was fun and easy to navigate. Did lots of snorkeling in the coral gardens in front of the house. Getting in water is a little rocky.

The House was clean and adequate for what we wanted. A little dated, but worked just fine.

For the minor maintenance issue we had, help was on its way promptly.

We would stay here again.

Wonderful property! Beautiful views day and night.

  • 5 of 5

Moon Glow was perfect for our Cayman Islands getaway. Great deck overlooking the ocean. Deck furniture was very nice. Clean and well appointed home. Loved the carport. Great to leave the Jeep in with the top down all the time. Stingray City is a must do.

Moon Glow's views are breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from spending 6 days at Moon Glow. If you are looking for a private, quiet vacation away from it all, this is the place. The house is very clean and very simply decorated. Nothing fancy but provided everything we needed. The views were breathtaking especially the sunrises. There were strong winds while we were there so the beaches were covered in seaweed but also with shells. Moon Glow is only a 1 minute drive (short walk) to Rum Point, if you want some activity. We ate at the beach grill and restaurant while there. We also went on a sunset sail out of Rum Point which was very nice. Starfish Point was also a fun time and only 5 minutes away. Make sure you stop for groceries and liquor on your way from airport. I've never experienced such peacefulness on a vacation. Grand Cayman has become my favorite Caribbean location and the Northside is my kind of place (a little Bob Marley music here). Moon Glow was exactly what we were looking for and I have to say it one more time - the views are breathtaking.

Property is lovely, but garbage along the whole beach

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, nice views. The property itself was fine except for the windows not working. There is no need for A/C with that off shore breeze, but only half the windows worked (missing crank parks, handles broken) and the windows facing the ocean in the bedrooms are fixed. What a shame. The real downer was all the plastic garbage in the water and washed up on the beach. We went snorkeling the first day right from the property, but it was disgusting having pieces of plastic getting stuck on your mask, etc. We didn't go after that, just couldn't stomach the feel or sight of it. We even stopped walking on the beach. We just stayed inside, enjoyed the Mastic trail (which was free of garbage), the botanical gardens, and museum in town.

No Complaints!

  • 5 of 5

Five stars for: beautiful beach and ocean views from all rooms, quiet location with easy walking access to Rum Point and Kaibo, excellent snorkeling right off the beach, kayak included, well equipped kitchen, king sized bed in master, sufficient wifi for adult family of 4, barbecue grill, friendly and helpful staff from booking to on island, our children (21 and 18) were never bored and we would return again. The furniture is showing some wear and the bathrooms could be upgraded, but we were outside all day every day so it didn\'t matter to us at all. No pool, but again, no problem because we were in the ocean all day. Stingray city tours close at rum point and kaibo, several restaurants within 10-20 min drive.
