About Jim Rankin

We live in Pennsylvania and enjoy the comforts of our country home which rests on 10 acres. We live close to our children and grandchildren and travel often. We spend 3 months a year on the island so we get it enjoy it to its fullest.

Our most recent trip was to China, My wife, two adult children and myself visited late fall of 2014, it was a great trip. We spent two weeks seeing key sites between Shanghai to Beijing and several cities in between via air and high speed train. The Great Wall, Tenement Square and The Forbidden City in Beijing, Terracotta Army in Xi'an, The Bund in Shanghai with over 400 high rises, and then West Lake in the City of Hangzhou. Great Trip!

In September of 2016 my Cora & I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. We will come to the Caymans for a week, then Jamaica & then a weeks cruise to 4 ports in Cuba.

I am a phoneman, installing and maintaining Business Phone Systems nationally. We at Telcom Systems & Services have just entered our 18th years of this family run business. My wife, Son Raymond and Kim have the fortune of working together. This I am so thankful for as our kids got to see who I am and possibly why. At the same time I get to watch them grow as a person. Ray has been here for 12 years now and Kim over 15. Cora has been here for the long haul, as she has supported my career from the start as I have been in the industry since 1974, 42 years now!

Jim Rankin purchased this villa in 2010

Why Jim Rankin chose Cayman Islands

We had visited the island and happened to drive by this magnificent home. We had no intension at the time to buy a second home - the idea of having one out of the country and at a price over a million dollars was definitely not on the agenda. We did an abrupt u-turn when we saw the sign, Model Home for Sale, Come In, and that we did ! We purchased the home in 2010 and have been delighted with this Retreat every since, you will do the same.

What makes this villa unique

The views are so remarkable, you can spread your arms out wide and that is about the view you will see, 150 degrees. Listen to the waves come in while relaxing in one of two master suites, each with its own over-sized walkout patio. You will have plenty of room in these 17x17 masters with king sized beds. You can see the ocean while laying in bed. The third bedroom is equipped with a queen sized bed and a walkout to the pool deck. All Rooms are 10' tall, have Hunter Fans with beautiful high vaulted ceilings, further adding to its already spaciousness of 3000 square feet. There are 7 Sliding Glass Doors, one in each bedroom, two in the dining room and two in the family room. Each is over-sized at 12 feet wide and 8 feet high, providing a wonderful view of the ocean from every room in the house. Enjoy swimming in the pool - a nice bbq or just spending time of the spacious pool deck or gazebo as the views are magnificent as you can see the ocean from there while enjoying the wide open skies and ocean at just 13 feet above sea level and just 50 feet from the water. You will find yourself just sitting in amazement in this truly one of a kind home.

Great Restaurants within a short drive, and only 15 minutes from famous Rum Point with the many water activities, drinks, food, and easy trips to Sting Ray City. All new outdoor patio furniture on the pool deck, and Master Bedroom patio's as well. The home is spacious and comfortable and very well appointed. Chose the mood and atmosphere you want for the evening, all lighting has been recently upgraded to LED's and can be dimmed right down to a soft glow from one end of the house to the other, its truly wonderful.

Beautiful home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable is the best word I can use to describe this home! Views from the bedrooms and kitchen are to DIE for! Spacious and comfortable. My family and friends enjoyed vacationing here so much, it's hard to say in words. Highly recommend staying here any chance you get.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We all had amazing time at Endless Breeze. Photos do not do justice to this place. Perfect for people who want to be a little isolated and in a private setting. Jim was amazing to book with and easy to get a hold of. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Outstanding home!

  • 5 of 5

Endless Breeze is a truly remarkable home and rental property. My friends and I have rented other homes and Jim's house puts them to shame. Not only is it even more lovely than the pictures show, but it is so incredibly well stocked with every amenity , from garbage bags to mustard, salt and pepper and paper towel, that we virtually had to buy only food.

There are plenty of chairs around the pool and in the gazebo, tv's in every room and a land line connection to the US which was a God send since my cell phone never did quite work right despite the WiFi.

We sat outside on the patio most mornings watching the water roll in and chatting with the resident rooster and hen who came to scavenge, along with the rock lizards and hermit crabs. The view could not be more beautiful and all 3 bedrooms look out over the water.

The house is close to several restaurants and even the drive into Georgetown is interesting for seeing the sights. Plenty to do on the island and this is the place to base yourself. Pearlene and her husband are a phone call away with help if you need it. Many thanks to Jim for a wonderful 8 days.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, peaceful cove... except for the crashing waves over the reef - just perfect to become very relaxed. Home in great shape, nice deck and pool. Capt Marvins stingray, with two other snorkeling spots a nice take. Eating close by at The Lighthouse a MUST (ask for an outside seat) as food, ambiance, and waiting staff excellent. So many great snorkeling spots - ask locals for spots as found dive shops liked to keep some treasures to themselves.

Gorgeous - No complaints!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful well situated house on the East End of the island. The house is fully equipped with most needs. Beds are comfortable and the bathrooms deluxe. Fall asleep to crashing waves in this grand 3 bedroom house. You definitely needed water shoes for the water and the crashing waves makes snorkeling OK, but you are rocked about - the northern part of the island is calmer. The best grocery stores were nearer the airport. But basics grocery stores are near house. Good restaurant choices in area and less crowded then the more popular ends of the island. THank you!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and up-to-date. My favorite part was how the bedrooms were separate from the main living area...very quite.

Car: necessary

This beautiful single family home is situated just 15 minutes from Rum Point and is set on a point providing a full view of the ocean. The house itself is just 50 feet from the waters edge, and just 5 minutes past Frank Sound Road. There are many restaurants to choose from and excellent Sunday Brunches and local dining just minutes away.

Our beach at Half Moon Bay is typical of much of Grand Cayman's coast outside of 7 Mile Beach, with iron shore and rocks prevalent. Our beach itself is sandy, and there are several good snorkeling reef heads and lots of fish in our bay, but you'll have to navigate some rocks in your entry to the water. Water shoes and/or flippers are a must. Once you traverse a few yards of rocks, the water depth is sufficient to begin swimming throughout the bay.
