Great for large family or many couples

  • 4 of 5

Fun location, beautiful, but windy and trash prone North side beach, but plenty of sand to enjoy. House is very nice, not luxurious, but very clean and comfortable. Tv reception in bedroooms poor, but main room excellent. Kitchen could use some additional and upgraded cookware, no casseroles or glass bakeware to speak of. Grill is charcoal. Hot water and water pressure is great. Pool is clean and nice. Individual bedrooms are private and excellent.

Great stay for couples

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults who were fortunate enough to book this place last minute after Irma changed our original plans for Tortola. We did take a few days out of the week to see some of the sights that Grand Cayman offers like star fish point and sting ray city and bioluminescent tours but the days we stayed at the house were just as great. We had basically our own private beach and saw star fish and sting rays out in the water. We brought bocce ball with us and enjoyed playing that out on the beach. We had a chef cook and private yoga and private massages without leaving the house. Roy was a pleasure to work with. The house is quite a haul from main grocery stores but it's nice being away from it all. The best bargain meal was Kurt's Corner. We also ate at Kaibo and Over the Edge for closer meals. The house is well stocked with spices and kitchen utensils and towels.

Perfect villa for 5 couples!

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our group of five couples and we highly recommend it. It offered a roomy gathering area on the ground floor, and five spacious private king bedrooms/bathrooms with ocean views, all set on a beautiful stretch of ocean. The villa is set back a bit from the road and has an empty lot on one side, making it very quiet and private. In addition to the master king suite on the ground floor, there is a half bath and a laundry room stocked with many beach towels. There is also an outdoor shower and a half bath at the pool cabana, making it very convenient to avoid tracking sand into the house. We also found useful the charcoal grill, a small outdoor refrigerator, and a pony kegerator. There were plenty of lounges/chairs for all ten of us to relax around the pool and on the beach. The villa is only a short distance to activities and Red Sail Sports at Rum Point, as well as several restaurants serving scrumptious lunches, dinners, and Sunday brunches [Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill, Rum Point Club Restaurant, Over the Edge, Kurt's Corner (hidden behind Water Boyz liquor store), Tukka, The Lighthouse]. After picking up our rental vehicles at the airport (Marshall's was great), we picked up groceries at Foster's IGA and a pony keg at the Cayman Brewery (nice assortment of beer options) on our way from the airport. (To save some money, pick up your duty free liquor at the airport before leaving on your flight to Grand Cayman.) Chisholm's groceries (quickmart style) is just down the road from the villa, which came in handy a few times, and it now has Sunday hours. Just pack your clothes and sunscreen, and come relax and enjoy this fabulous, comfortable home with spectacular views!

Wonderful Place for a Family or Group

  • 4 of 5

We came down to Grand Cayman for the first time with our family (kids all 20+), parents, sister and a few significant others. I did lots of research to try and find the right place on the island, and the right house. The area up by Rum Point is so nice and away from the resort strip that makes up 7 mile beach. You don't have to worry about the cruise ship crowds on this part of the island.

The house was on a nice spot on the beach with neighboring houses on one side (there was an empty lot on the other side with trash that it would have been nice to have someone clean up). The pool being on the beach side of the house was great so even when you were swimming in the pool you had the ocean in front of you. It was a little windy but the breeze actually kept it cool enough to be outside all the time. You do need water shoes or snorkel gear if you are going to go out more than 10-20 yards in the ocean because there are coral and other things that could spoil your trip if you step on them bare footed, but if you need a white sandy beach Rum Point and Starfish beach are only a couple of miles away, and there is no wind on the part of the point. The lack of wind was actually a little stifling so we are glad we had it most days.

This house is as it looks in the pictures except the living room picture is old and doesn't show the outside patio/Tiki bar expansion through the windows that you see in other shots. The TV outside at the Tiki bar doesn't work but who needs outside TV at the beach. There is a kegorator and wine refrigerator at the outside bar. We spent most days doing short day trips to other beaches to snorkel or sight see, then would come back to the house for a relaxing late afternoon swim and beach before grilling out for dinner. Our bed was in bad shape and dipped to the middle which I didn't like, but everyone else said theirs was good. I would certainly recommend this house as a place for a big family or group of friends. 5 master suites all with their own bathrooms, and a pool right on the beach is pretty nice! Not sure why there have not been more recent reviews, people where there right before us also.

Amazing Vacation and Home

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Cayman Island with a group of friends (mostly couples) and had the most amazing time. The home is beautiful and the location is perfect. The pictures here are accurate but somehow they still don't capture the size and beauty of the house. The price of the rental cannot be beat, we definitely got our money's worth! The house has everything you need and there was no reason to leave it with the ocean view, sandy beach, and pool. It is close to Rum Point so you can take advantage of the water sports. We will definitely be back and will recommend to anyone who asks!!

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.
