3BR/3BA Fingertip is directly waterfront in Cayman Kai (within Rum Point) on the north coast. This one story, extremely private villa is a choice for a honeymoon, anniversary or just a small family vacation. The property ends in a palm-shaded, white sand beach, with lounge chairs and a hammock under the trees. The shallow, clear water offers barefoot swimming and, when combined with the modern, comfortable interior and exceptional privacy, Fingertip promises to be an exceptional island getaway.
Many oceanfront windows and sliding doors to the screened porch provide panoramic views of the azure waters off of Cayman Kai. The 24 feet of sliding glass doors disappear into the walls to join the screen porch with the main living area, allowing a cross-breeze in winter to cool the house when A/C is not necessary.
The interior features sunny, open architecture. The modern kitchen has all the standard appliances, dishware, cookware and cutlery; an oceanfront living room has cozy couches and a fantastic view. Central A/C, WiFi, Plasma TV, Charcoal Grill, Stereo, Linens, Towels and Beach Towels provided.
(1) Oceanfront King Master Suite; (1) Oceanfront Queen Master Suite and (1) Twin Bedroom suite. The two masters open to the screen porch.

We loved the fact that you are on a wonderful soft sand beach the moment you step foot outside. Comfortable home, comfortable beds. We had no issues with the house, and found the manager very friendly and welcoming. Called once to inquire about renting kayaks, quick response. I would be willing to pay a bit more a night if they ever included kayaks as rental is fairly expensive. However, being right at the entrance of the bioluminescence bay, you have the best of both worlds at your back door. The waters are calm, very inviting. We did discover that swimming through shallow grassy areas may not be the best idea...."sea lice." Microscopic ? jelly fish. Most of us were stung a little, but it was very minor and went away within the day. In the future, easy to avoid. (I just got caught up seeing the fish.) My husband had the time of his life enjoying the sunset, a drink, his music (we bright an iPone speaker) and grilling (they have a small charcoal grill.) We cooked our on meals and the kitchen had all our basic needs. You may want to bring baggies for food storage. (Not many plastic containers.) For first time guests, I advise renting a car large enough for your luggage and groceries. Once you land, get your groceries first, in town. (The drive is about 40-50 minutes from the airport. This will save you time. If you plan to grill, be sure to buy charcoal and lighter fluid. There are nice places to eat close, but it's not cheap. Cooking saves money. It's a great family vacation. We will definitely be back! One more thought, keep in mind that the grocery stores are closed on Sundays.
Stayed at FingerTip with 2 other couples first week February 2015. Home was very clean and well kept and we received a phone call from Chloe to make sure all was well. This was fine with us as we have visited G.C. before and rented several times through VRBO, information provided prior to arrival was more than ample.
The home had everything we needed, little disappointed as the ad stated mid week maid service which did not happen, when we asked Chloe stated that maid service was after we left? No big deal as we had access to washing machine and dryer for towels. We did ask for T.P. and were informed that was our responsibility? Overall the location was great,very clean, just felt like we were misled and find it odd that toilet paper was extra?
This well kept home is as nice as the pictures. For folks who like to be away from the hustle of 7 Mile Beach this location is ideal. It can be a long drive to Georgetown, but with restaurants at Kaibo, Lighthouse, and Morrit's nearby, you can spend a whole relaxing week without a lot of time behind the wheel. The property manager, Chloe, was on site to greet us when we arrived, and we received a warm Cayman welcome. Chloe helped us arrange a phone to make some necessary telephone calls and she made sure we had everything we needed.
It would be nice to have a kayak or two since that is a popular activity in this area. But other than that the house and visit were perfect.
Our family of four stayed at Fingertip for a week in March 2011. It was our first time renting a property online, but our leap of faith paid off. The property description and pictures do not oversell the property -- it really is as beautiful as described and the photos are very accurate. The house was clean, comfortable and well maintained, and the private beach and view were exquisite. We loved Cayman Kai because it is off the beaten path and much quieter than Seven Mile Beach. The proximity to the Rum Point Club, with boat and snorkel rentals and places to eat, was great. It is a lovely beach club.
We have stayed on this island before but this is by far our favorite little villa. It is like having our very own private beach area....and love the hammock. On second thought....maybe I should leave a negative review so I can be assured that it won't be booked when we want to stay.
We spent a week here as a family in March of 2011. The beach is perfect! The house is unpretentious yet fully equipped. You are near enough Rum Point and Kaibo for fun, restaurants, and activities but in your own quiet world. We have stayed in many houses on the island, and I would rate this as my favorite. A few minor issues were dealt with quickly by the management.
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 sound front in Cayman Kai offer the best beaches as they don’t have as much marine and plant life trying to make a home in the shallows. The beaches usually are soft white sand. The homes facing west offer barefoot swimming and shallow calm water. The sunsets are also wonderful, but 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 the map on our homepage for exact locations. The homes facing south (Kai Rumba, Pools of the Kai, Kai Sound Studio) have great white sand beaches, but softer sea bottom. You will probably walk across the street to swim in sandier water) Lastly…about 20 minutes east 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.
