Experience the delight and tranquility of this charming, 'bungalow' style, free standing cottage. It rests upon its own private, pure white, powdery, soft beach. We are located on the quiet, serene side of the island, just 40 minutes from the Georgetown Airport. 'Gardens of the Kai Condos' feature a relaxed and restful atmosphere with pristine views and beautiful tropical gardens. Walk out the extra large screened in lanai, and within steps be transported directly to paradise. Crystal blue waters, a gentle breeze, and oscillating palm trees encompass your view. A fresh water sparkling pool can also be found on the property for those who choose this option.

This 1100 square foot home features 1 bedroom/1 bath with an additional queen-size sleeper sofa. The beautiful open floor plan with Caribbean-style furniture is in excellent condition.

Large floor to ceiling slider doors open up to the lanai from both the kitchen and living-dining room area. The lanai showcases a tile floor, white wicker furniture, and a ceiling fan. Million dollar, expansive views of your own private beach, along with beautiful sunsets can be soaked up from here. Just grab your coffee or glass of wine, sit back and enjoy!

Beachfront Villa was awesome! It felt like a home away from home. Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe our wonderful stay at Mitch and Andrea's beachfront villa. The villa as well as the views were awesome, not to mention the island. We had all the comforts of home. Enjoying coffee in the morning on the lanai, watching the day come alive while watching and listening to the ocean was our favorite. The water is crystal clear and we were lucky enough to see two large starfish in the water in front of the villa. We enjoyed sunset cocktails with some of the neighbors and enjoyed learning more about the island. During the day we spent time exploring the island, sunbathing, shopping and making friends with some of the locals. The restaurants were a real treat. With all the different nationalities on the island we were able to experience foods from many different cultures.

We enjoyed our stay so much ...... we've already booked for next year!

Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us! See you next year!

I've been going to Grand Cayman for the past 10 years, every year, at the same time. I've stayed in 5 different properties in that time frame. The ONLY reason, my wife and I booked this one, is because our favorite place was put on the market and the owner could not guarantee that our stay would be honored when we took our trip. This was the only place available that was where we like to be on the island. Looking at the pictures and reading reviews, I was left with not much of a choice, but I thought, what the heck, nothing bad had been said about the property.

First of all, in the last 10 years, I have NEVER had to kill ants in the bed while we were sleeping. Not the little guys either, these were the BIG ones. The first night, we chalked that up to maybe the place has been empty for a little while. The second night, we had both had enough. The air conditioning in the unit was marginal. It only kept the place somewhat comfortable, but it was still hot inside. The door to lock the place up was faulty. I contacted the property manager about it, they sent a guy over, he said it was broke, and we never heard from or saw anyone else again. When i say the door was faulty, you could lock it, but just a little jiggle, and it would come unlocked. There is a lock box in the closet. I asked the guy who came over if we could get a key so that we could lock our valuables up when we left the place and he said he would "talk to the office".....never heard back from them. The beach is a little bit of a walk from the condo as well. There was a kayak at the condo, but we had no access to it because it was locked up.

Fortunately through the years, I have made several contacts on the island and I was able to find us another place so as not to ruin our vacation. I was able to get us into our favorite property because it was still under the same ownership and the owner of that property is PHENOMENAL!! She jumped through hoops to accommodate us and saved our vacation.

I sent a message to the owner of this property stating that we had left the place and I never heard ANYTHING back. Not a "was there a problem?", "what could I do to make it right?", heard absolutely NOTHING from them!

This was also the first time that we've stayed in a condo. You can rest assured that it will be the LAST time as well.

Owner's Response: Jerry- I just finished reading the review you posted, and find myself quite distraught. I own three rental properties and have received over one-hundred reviews, all of them with raving remarks and excellent satisfaction. Your review is the very first negative and disapproving one. Actually, it is extremely bad and upsetting. After speaking with my property manager in regards to your complaints, she informed me that you did indeed call. She told me you called about the lock on the sliding door. She addressed the issue by assuring you it was in working order, but still sent a repair man over to the villa for extra measure. The repair man noted it was just fine. Furthermore, my property manager told me there was never any mention whatsoever about ants in the villa from you. It is sprayed every other month for all types of bugs and rodents. Never once did you reach out to me with any complaints, issues, or questions. The courtesy would have been appreciated. My phone number and email are listed for any such reasons. No attempt was made on your part to contact me. I would have appreciated you contacting me so I could at least try and rectify the problem. You also had complaints that the beach was a bit too far from the villa. We are approximately 30-40 yards away from the ocean. You step right out our door and are steps away from the sand. The entire complex is set up in this fashion. I ask you, as well as all of my future guests to please read over all the raving reviews that I have received. I have always prided myself on being there for my guests in any way I can help. Those reviews speak louder than your one negative one. You be the judge here as to who is telling the truth!

The house was awesome. We had the beach to ourselves almost everyday. The gardens around the place were gorgeous. We will come back again someday.

Would highly recommend to friends and family. The Kaibo beach bar was awesome and just across the street. You have to go out and watch the sunsets on the beach by the house every night!!!!!

good for the soul

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Busch's beautiful villa in April. I want to thank Mitchell and his family for sharing and welcoming us into his home. That's exactly what it felt like to us. Home. It was nice and clean and the lanai was the best room in the house! The beach was huge and beautifully landscaped. We really loved that it was located far from the tourist areas. We've been to Grand Cayman a few times and love to explore and go snorkeling on beaches all over the island. Rum Point has some great snorkeling and really clear water too. Thanks again Mitchell for sharing your sunshine, warmth, and some fun memories. We would love to come back again some day and stay at your place again. It's been the absolute best so far!

Relaxing in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time at the Gardens of Kai Beachfront Villa. Every morning was spent drinking coffee beachside in the screened lanai and sunsets on the beach each evening. This is the quiet ,and we think most beautiful part, of the island. If you are looking for lazy afternoons, good swimming and a slow downed pace for a vacation this villa is perfect. The owners were very responsive to questions, and the condo was clean and well stocked to meet all your needs. Some local restaurants, great water activities close by and a quality property to enjoy. We will definitely return!
