Overview

Rum Point Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed 2 Bath and screened in porches front and back

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6 Adults or 4 Adults and 4 Children)

Sea Lodge #24 is located directly on the beach in the North Side of Grand Cayman in the beautiful small community of Cayman Kai, a safe, secluded, tranquil, and friendly area. It is beachfront property with a beautiful multicolored sea views that goes from turquoise to deep sapphire. It is protected by a coral reef 200 yards out from shore and provides great snorkeling opportunities for beginner and avid snorkelers alike. Swimming is great in the sparkling, crystal-clear water. Our private pristine beach has beautiful sand and is great for relaxing walks. It is also ideal for reading that new book you picked up while catching a few sun rays. This is very private and peaceful location to relax. So, if you are looking for that secluded island feeling...this is your place!

Attractively furnished, two bedroom unit with Queen size beds and sofa sleepers in each bedroom with a full bath. Our sea lodge sleeps up to 8 people max. There is 1 sofa sleeper in each bedroom that can accommodate 1 Adult or 2 Children.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor Weber Grill (charcoal included) .

HD cable television, 42' LED HDTV, DVD Player w/ 70 blockbuster movies and WiFi Internet from apple airport extreme router connection, and airport express.

Air-conditioning in both bedrooms, but not often needed with the nice tropical breezes and the wonderful louver doors that open to the seaside porch. Sit and relax with your favorite beverage enjoying the ocean breeze, as you listen to the peaceful sounds of the ocean lapping on the beach.

Seaside porch is great for eating out under the stars or watching the moon rise out of the water. It is also relaxing just to sit back relax and look out at the Caribbean Sea. Star gaze and look for satellites high in the sky, or find constellations, as the skies are so clear.

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We did a lot of research on this property, including reading the other reviews on this site. The lodge was exactly as we expected and included some amenities that we didn't expect such as swim fins and other beach toys. The lodge was clean and plenty spacious for 5 adults. The housekeeper, Barbara was kind and responsive. The snorkeling immediately off of the beautiful beach was excellent, see Testudo's snorkeling guide for more info. We saw many fish, a ray, a turtle, and a couple barracuda. The accommodation is also very close to Rum Point which is great for some local drinks and food as well as more water and beach activities. Other restaurants we enjoyed were Over the Edge which is on the north side and Tukka which is on the east side. Overall a great stay!

Good, but not what expected

  • 4 of 5

This condo near Rum Point was nice and looked just like the pictures, however be aware there is no ac in the living room , which caught us off guard. The rooms however do and sleeping was comfortable. TheRe is a great ocean breeze at night that makes sitting in the back room lovely. The beach for us was really disappointing. We expected the crystal blue waters we remembered when we were at Seven Mile beach on our last visit. This Beach had quite a bit of seaweed and reefs all along the shore, which made it difficult to step around sharp rocks sticking out the sand. Since we don't snorkel, we didn't want to deal with it to get to the clear water that was just beyond. Rum Point was definitely not what we expected. One restaurant, one shop and not all that. Starfish Point just beyond Rum Point was lovely, but not much beach to spend the day on. Instead we drove daily to the west coast and enjoyed the clear and clean water of the 7 mile beaches. Govenors and Tiki beaches were the most visited by us. The 40-50 minutes drive was manageable, but not one that we wanted to do for dinner in the evening so we were limited to the restaurants on the East End - One that was closed the entire month of July. Overall the condo is well kept, and is comfortable...it was the nicest condo in the cluster. If you are looking for a more "local" experience this may be what you are looking for.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking to time to write a review for other travelers to read. I wanted respond to a few things you mentioned regarding your stay. There is no A/C in the Main Living Area due to the size of the space. It would be a futile effort to condition that space. There is a large industrial ceiling fan and the ocean breeze is usually sufficient. Both bedrooms have A/C to make sleeping comfortable. Our private beach is cleaned everyday by our hired grounds crew. You are correct, there is some sea grass along the shore. However, you mentioned reefs along the shore that make entering the water difficult. The only reef is the Eastern Coast Barrier Reef that is over 150 yards out from the shore. Along the shoreline, there are some rocks under there water, but there is typically a sandy "pathway" that you can walk out waist deep water to get through the sea grass. The walkway is on the northern end of our private beach. The pictures on our site are not altered and I can assure all future guests, the crystal clear water is the same as Seven Mile Beach . The only difference is the 10 liner feet from shore of sea grass. In our experience, Rum Point is a quiet and relaxing hangout. There are 2 restaurants; The Wreck Bar and Grill, which is open from mid morning through late afternoon. In the evening, the Rum Point Club is open for dinner. Both have wonderful food and service...and adult beverages! There are roughly 8 restaurants within 15 minutes from our location. We typically stay home and cook dinners, play cards, and enjoy the evening sea breeze. In a weeks time, we may go out to dinner a couple times. The local fare nearby satisfies our needs. Seven mile beach is much more "touristy". With that comes more food options, but also not as relaxed in my opinion. I think you accurately describe the experience as a "local" one, but do not give an accurate portrayal of the overall "vibe". I think in my description of our unit's location, I mention that it is a quiet and relaxing one. If you want a " touristy" feel, then Seven Mile Beach is where you would want to stay. It sounds like you enjoyed your stay in our unit, but unfairly dinged our review due to your inaccurate expectations. It sounds like you expected Seven Mile Beach...which it is not. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review, but I suggest asking/researching what to expect before you book a rental so you are not disappointed. Best regards, Chad

5 Star Excellent Rating!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Grand Cayman Island and the experience was spectacular! The views of the gorgeous turquoise Caribbean Sea from the living room are breathtaking! The condo was so perfect that some days were spent simply lounging in the living room or screened patio enjoying the ocean view, drinking frozen daiquiris and listening to the calming sounds of the ocean and palm trees. Truly a relaxing experience! If you're seeking a quiet location away from all the tourists, hustle and bustle, then look no further. What's also great about this location is that 3 of the 5 best voted beaches on the island (Rum Point, Kaibo and Starfish Point Beach) are all located within 5 minutes from the condo. Can't get any better than that! I recommend that you stop by Fosters grocery store (and Big Daddy's liquors) both located right next to the airport and each other before heading to this side of the island for all your food and beverage supplies. Don't worry, if you happen to run out of things you can drive 10 minutes down the road to Chisholm's. It's a small family owned grocery store with amazing customer service! It may not be as big as Fosters, but they will have most of what you'll need to get through the rest of your trip. Plus, the Owners are wonderful people! We really enjoyed spending our vacation on this side of the island away from all the tourist madness that you'll find along seven mile beach. Definitely going back to Grand Cayman Island and staying in this wonderful cottage by the sea again!

Incredible stay in Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy waking up to the sound of rustling palm trees and the oceans calming waves, this is the perfect spot for you! I was very excited and nervous while planning our trip to Grand Cayman last summer; however, our stay over Christmas and New Year's Eve was perfect. My husband and I traveled with our 3 teenage children. They were delightfully impressed by the condo, and mind you, my children do not hold back their true opinion. The condo provided plenty of space, easy access to the beach, and a very relaxed environment. It was the perfect blend of peaceful nature and the modern conveniences we are all accustomed to. We swam daily and learned to snorkel while there. We cooked most of our meals at the condo, which our budget necessitated. Groceries are much more expensive in Grand Cayman - and our teenagers are always hungry! We could easily stay in and do our laundry, watch netflix, swim, snorkel, and tan, or pack up for the day and do some sightseeing. It is definitely necessary to rent a car when you go and although overwhelming on your first day, you quickly learn your way around the island. Rum Point is just around the corner for easy access to another beach, sightseeing trips, and socializing. We highly recommend going to Stingray City! EVERYONE we encountered on the island was helpful and friendly. We felt very much at home despite the fact that it was our first time there. It will definitely not be our last!

Fantastic Place on Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

This was better than expected. Right on the beach, snorkeling right off the property. Quiet area. great for couples. Close to Rum Point for all the day's fun. When I go back, this will be the place I want to go. The owner was easy to deal with. Loved it!!

Charming/Private/Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Both the lodging and area have maintained the true feel of the Cayman Islands,unlike Seven Mile beach which is now so built up,congested,and sterile.

Lovely area for walking both on the beach and roads,good birding with parrots in area.

Excellent snorkeling right out the door, eagle rays,turtles,squid,and an easy shallow swim all the way to the very protected reef.

Owner/Manager responds immediately, and was quite accommodating and helpful.

The lovely cottage was clean,well stocked,and the screened in large porch is perfect for all meals with beautiful view of the sea.

Will return soon!
