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.

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.

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.

Private relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Private property away from the tourist noises, yet close to many local oppotunites (Rum Point, Botanical Gardens, etc.). Not your typical "rental" property. Very clean, well furbished modern home, and a kitchen with all necessities found for making an excellent meal. The seperate suite style bedrooms was excellent for multiple couples. Reading library if you didn't bring your own books and broad TV selections for movie night or to catch-up on the box scores. Wi-fi allowed checking events (port schedules to avoid the tourists on the cruise ships) and dinner menus of local resturaunts. Privacy and relaxation abound with "Endless Breeze" and the soothing sounds of the surf. Would highly recommend for a private get-away or to re-charge ones sense of well being.

Peaceful, Relaxing Get-Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Endless Breeze!!! There were five of us; my husband & myself, along with our three grown children-ages 26, 24, & 22. The house was perfect!! There are three bedrooms-all with gorgeous views of the ocean-and all with bathrooms! It was just wonderful! The kitchen is large with everything that you could possibly need. There is also a grill out on the patio that we used everyday for lunch. We really loved the large patio! There is a small pool which was so refreshing with plenty of lounge chairs to sit in the sun. We brought water shoes with us and enjoyed walking down the hill to the ocean to go snorkeling. There is only one other house in the site line, so we found the house to be very private and peaceful! The only downside to being on the East End is that you have to drive a distance to get to most things. They drive on the wrong side of the road with the steering wheel also on the wrong side for us Americans, so that took some getting used to. Actually, it was an adventure and a memory that we'll never forget! We dined at some fabulous places ( The Grand Old House, Casanova's By The Sea, The Lighthouse, Tukka, XQ's, to name a few) and enjoyed the Bioluminescence night boat tour at Rum Point. It was a really great getaway for our busy family, and we hope to return again!

Perfect location away from busy downtown

  • 5 of 5

House was incredible. Beautiful view with some of best snorkeling in cove just out the back door. Located away from all of the cruise ship traffic and people but close to several very good restaurants, beaches, attractions and dive shop. Grocery store nearby and easy drive to rum point. House has everything you could need and plenty of things to keep kids entertained as well. Wouldn't hesitate to go back here again. Be warned that cost of living in Grand Cayman is quite shocking but it is vacation however.

Wonderful home with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a week on Grand Cayman with another couple and stayed at the Endless Breeze. The house was immaculate when we arrived and the pool clean and inviting. The property manager Pearlene dropped by to make sure everything was ok and we enjoyed speaking with her. The house had two nice master bedrooms, on opposite sides of the house, with comfortable beds and en suite baths . Each had a patio with that fantastic view of the Caribbean Sea. The kitchen was well appointed and we enjoyed preparing most of our meals, one of the main reasons we are drawn to owner rentals. We also enjoyed meals out at Tukka, The Lighthouse, and Over the Edge. All were very good...don't overlook take out pizza from The Lighthouse either! The whole experience was great and the house played a huge role in making the experience. In addition to the comfortable furniture and accommodations inside, the outside pool and patio area was just as nice with plenty of room and furniture to enjoy the sea breeze while grilling fresh caught tuna.

I would definitely come back and highly recommend to anyone looking for great accommodation on the quieter end of the island.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Rent this home! From the moment you pull up to this property, it exceeds one's expectations...the house, the view, the privacy, the "endless breeze."

The house is immaculately clean and has every amenity one could wish to have. The view from every room took our breath away. The outdoors...perfect.

Our only regret was leaving and we are already consulting our calendar for a return visit.

Thank you Rankin family!
