Excellent property... the house is open and breezy and the location is terrific.

  • 5 of 5

The house had all the amenities you could want and the pool and hot tub were a perfect pair. It is located close enough to Rum point to walk and biking or a long walk (2 miles) to Star Fish Point, both have beautiful sandy beaches and clear water. There are plenty of restaurant options close.

The Perfect Escape

What an incredible spot! The view is beyond stunning and the home is incredibly spacious. We went for a girls weekend and had an absolute blast -- we are already planning our next trip back!

Perfect house for two families

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! We wanted to stay in a less touristy area and Kai Vista was perfect. We rented a van that would accommodate both families from Murphy's car rental and stopped at one of the grocery stores and loaded up on breakfast and lunch stuff. Upon arrival at the house the kids were so excited as soon as they saw the infinity pool they had to put on their bathing suits and jump in. We were two families of 4 and had plenty of space in the house to never feel on top of each other. The master bedroom is downstairs which my sister and her husband stayed in. Their teenage son stayed in the other bedroom located next to the master downstairs. There are two bedrooms upstairs that each have a walkout balcony and their own bathrooms. My husband and I stayed in one of those rooms and my daughter and her cousin shared the other bedroom. My son was more than happy to sleep in the pullout couch in the upstairs hallway. I have to say the infinity pool was all our favorite thing about the house. There wasn't a day that we didn't hop in and cool off. We also took advantage of the hot tub. The kitchen had every gadget you could possibly need and they had plenty of spices left over from previous guests. Having access to the laundry room was such an added bonus. We were able to wash towels several times during our trip.

We did charter a boat for the day from Silver Thatch and had George as our Captain he was great! We hit Sting Ray City, Starfish point, and went snorkeling... George found the perfect snorkeling site and it felt like we were swimming in a fish bowl. Incredible! We made a day trip to 7 Mile Beach and hung out at The Royal Palm. *Tip if you go there on a day there are no cruise ships you can use a cabana for free! Only downside is the pool is adult only, but it didn't effect our day because the water and beach on 7 Mile is incredible and you instantly want to go into the ocean. We did eat out at a bunch of restaurants. One of the best meals I ate was at Rum Point. We also ate lunch and dinner at Kaibo, Dinner at Tukka twice. The best brunch and most affordable meal of the week was on 7 mile Beach (Coconut Joe's) also we highly recommend dinner at Casanova (Italian).

Only suggestion I would make about the house is a backyard grill would be a welcome addition.

All in all it was a perfect vacation and I hope we will be back again soon! Book Kai Vista you will not be disappointed.

The Woodlands, TX

This property is absolutely amazing! Everything was on point. From the moment you enter the driveway and then enter the front door, your breath is taken away by the beauty and style. The dining room and master bed room were repainted and look awesome. The pictures online do not do it justice. The master is a lot bigger than it appears in the picture and the walk in! My favorite was the kitchen and pool area. That is where my family of 8 adults spent the majority of our time. You will not be disappointed. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would ever need! The island is big enough for all 8 adults to eat and just hang out. We cooked everyday and 6 dinners while we were there. You will definitely need a rental car to get to the property and to do any sight seeing / grocery shopping. Even though I created a shopping list & menu, we found that we needed to go out a couple times to get a few things we ran low on. If you are planning on cooking, I suggest putting together a menu and shopping list. It saved me alot of time. After we landed at the airport, we got the rental van, stopped for lunch then at Hurley's tp do our grocery shopping for the first 4 days. Tuesday we went back out and did the rest of the week's shopping. Rum Point is within walking distance of the house. Some of the family snorkeled/floated down to Rum Point and then walked back. IT was amazing. We rented a boat and did some tubing, then went to Sting Ray City. That was so much fun! We used the two kayaks at the property and rented snorkel gear and two standup paddle boards. Tons of FUN! Thanks to Ron the property manager for stopping by and assisting us when the power went out (it was island wide, so don't worry, not the house's fault). He also helped me with receiving a package I had shipped and letting us borrow a cooler. We were very impressed with the property and level of service. There was even a wedding proposal from one of our family members while we were there. What a memorable occasion and vacation. Make sure you go out at night, we saw so many crab on the street, they reminded us of squirrels running across the street in the US. We also saw a lot of chickens, roosters and wild cats ! Thanks !! Kai Vista!!!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Incredible home. Luxurious and private.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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. ( ) 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 ( Click map on our home page. Lastly…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.
