Paradise, luxury, peaceful and gorgeous views are just a few of the adjectives to describe Kai Vista! The villa has absolutely everything you could want or need in a vacation home! I have to say that the beds are very comfy and sheets and bedding are luxurious! The home has all the electronics you need and more! We were concerned about the availability of watching the Patriots game but NO worries!!! Not only did we get to watch it but it was on one of the three large screen TV's that was in the house! The kitchen is equipped with any and all appliances that you need. There are multiple dining areas, 3 of the 4 bedrooms have their own bathroom, with the 4th being right outside the bedroom. The infinity pool and hot tub were a must have and they did not disappoint. Going from snorkeling in front of the house to the pool and the hot tub was absolutely enjoyable and relaxing! The location is great! Rum Point has 2 restaurants and Red Sail sports on the premises to offer you catamaran sails to Stingray city and snorkeling and much more! Starfish beach is a 5 minute ride from the villa. Kaibo restaurant is open for lunch and Kaibo Upstairs is a 5 star restaurant that you should definitely try!! If you like Rum, they have some very exotic types to try! Also try Tukka, about a 15 minute ride to the East End. We ate on the beach and the food is excellent! If you ever have trouble (which we didn't) the management company is on call and readily available. Make sure to read the lists and advice they have on their app! It is great advice!!
We plan on renting for 2 weeks next year!
We stayed for a week in December to escape the cold at home and had a fantastic time. The house exceeded expectations from the pictures (even though the pictures looked amazing) and everyone at Grand Cayman Villas was very helpful and prompt in responding to any questions we had prior to our trip. Check-in and out was simple and easy...and all the recommendations and checklists provided ahead of time really helped with planning some of our activities during the week. Highly recommend paying the extra fee for the pool heating, as it really made a difference (especially in the evenings). Rum point was just a short walk away and everything else we had wanted to do was a short drive (having a rental car certainly is needed on this side of the island). The upgrades to the kitchen really made it nice when we spent a night cooking at the house rather than going out. Despite being next to the public beach, it was very quiet and secluded all week...only a few snorkelers here and there heading out from the beach. Would love to come back again. Highly recommend this house for your stay on Grand Cayman.
Sometimes vacation property owners use the word luxury and then you find out they exaggerated. Not this time. Everyone in our family (2 grandparents, 4 parents, 3 kids ages 12, 10 and 5) had a wonderful time in this large impressive home. There were plenty of sleeping areas, plenty of bathrooms, lots of room to spread out during the day and an unbelievable amount of outdoor activity space and furnishings. The dining table was easily big enough for 9. We also enjoyed casual eating around the gigantic kitchen island with 8! bar stools. We used the gorgeous infinity pool several times every day, and also the hot tub. Loved the lounge chairs and hammock. Almost everyone tried out the kayaks, snorkeled out front, walked the beach and dug in the sand. There were beach and pool toys available and even a few puzzles and games for nighttime or during rain showers. Electronics were everywhere and a great wi-fi connection kept everyone happy with their personal devices. Being close enough to walk to Rum Point was a bonus as well. The convenience of food and drinks at Rum Point can't be beat. We loved Red Sail sports and rented snorkels, jet skis and the water trike and bought a Stingray City cruise from the very friendly folks there. The only minor drawback to the house location is being a little far away from the airport, Georgetown and other Cayman attractions, but the privacy and lack of crowds more than compensate. Kudos also to the management company who responded very quickly to resolve a/c and minor maintenance issues. The beach is rocky and entry into the water requires care, but the view anytime of the day or night was just amazing. Great food at Over the Edge. Suggest you buy groceries at one of the larger markets in or near Georgetown on your way from the airport or you will pay premium prices for very small selection.
We had the pleasure of staying at Kai Vista in early February 2016. We had a group of 7 people and the house and the setting was more than accommodating. The rooms are very spacious and the open floor plan on the main floor served as the best way to enjoy meals together and cook. We utilized the hot tub and pool every day, and would recommend paying extra to heat the pool for evenings. This was an amazing rental home and we commend the house staff for their welcoming and clean environment.
Kai Vista truly is paradise. The home is beautiful! Decorated perfectly to keep in the Caribbean whether your in doors or out, the views are second to none. The furniture is clean comfortable and leave you feeling right at home. The beds are comfortable enough, there is a ton of bedding. The master ensuite is straight out of a magazine... Its gorgeous!
As a group of 8 ladies we loved the enormous island. We used for nearly all meals and to share our chocolate! The beautiful pendant lights are the colour of the sea. We would all gather on their sectional after dinner to visit and for some serious girl time... Lol!
The pool area cannot be beat. Many naps, parties, morning coffees etc were had out there! We paid to have the pool heated and feel this would be a necessity. The furniture is comfortable. There are pool toys. The beach is right there... We did yoga there with no beach traffic it's completely tranquil! There is snorkel equipment, bikes, etc in the garage.
If you want to explore the island you need a car no two ways around it
My only suggestions would be that they upgrade some pans in the kitchen... Like an electric griddle, get a new blender... Though I'm sure you need too often, new cookie sheets and throw out the garbage ones. Also there are a few spices that others have left behind salt and pepper galore but perhaps a spice rack deck from Walmart or Costco. Keep things like tin foil Saran Wrap for guest. There was no usable bbq for us.
I would go back to Kai Vista tomorrow and never leave given the opportunity.
Our family recently stayed on Grand Cayman and our home away from homes was Kai Vista on Rum Point Road. I must say, it was the best family trip that we have ever had. We arrived at the house and no sooner had we put our bags down, then the kids jumped right into the pool. Shortly after, the adults followed. “Wow, this pool and water is amazing!” After relaxing in the infinity pool for a while we decided to stroll down to the ocean only to find that the water there was even warmer! We were in Heaven!
This home on Rum Point was simply amazing. It had everything we needed and it was located in the best spot for a super relaxing and enjoyable stay. Kai Vista is within walking distance to Rum Point, where there are shops, dining and additional places for swimming and water sports. The home had every amenity a group of travelers could need. A great pool, a large and sunny pool deck, a very functional kitchen and dining area, and plenty of room and TV’s for the whole group to relax and unwind. The tropical humidity was offset by the constant and prevailing northerly breeze, and the home also included bikes, kayaks, a grill, and snorkeling gear that accommodated our group. The snorkeling right off the beach was fantastic - we saw puffer fish, eel, lobster, and various bright, tropical fish that changed with each new excursion. It never got old, and we never felt a desire to leave our location, with the exception of strolling down the road to enjoy the delicious local cuisine at Rum Point Beach.
The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing breeze (trade winds) from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need 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) Click map on our home page. Lastly…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.
