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 East End

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.

                                                              Notes

                                                                • There is not another Custom Home quite like this one on the island with its own sandy beach, amazing views of the seas from all parts of the house. 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.

The house is very private, well appointed and very clean. The views are incredible from every point inside and out. The pool and coral beach was great and we enjoyed it every morning and evening. It's on the East End but only a short drive away from Rum Point, Seven Mile and our favorite Smith Barcadere. Thanks again! We hope to be back soon!

                                                                  One of the Best Vacation Rentals!

Gorgeous home, well kept and well appointed, in a very quiet and private setting, made it hard to leave to enjoy the island! Numerous great restaurants nearby and good grocery options close by. Definitely recommend this home to all who are seeking a wonderful getaway as a couple or a family!

                                                                  Perfecto!

                                                                  Scott

                                                                  Beautiful private oceanfront villa with all the comforts of home

                                                                  john m.

                                                                  This was one of our favorite rentals. Extremely comfortable accommodations and quiet oceanfront location. And the owner clearly makes an extra effort to assure a wonderful and trouble-free stay.

                                                                  I have recommended this spot to family and friends. Everything met or exceeded expectations. Anyone who prefers the quiet end of the island should be pleased.

                                                                  Amazing!

                                                                  Let me start by saying the pictures do no justice for this home, simply beautiful!! Everything we needed was already there which made for a stressfree vacation. As other stated make sure you have water shoes to enter into the ocean that way you don't miss out on some awesome snorkeling. From beginning to end this was by far the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. Do yourself a favor and book yourself a trip to this house you will not regret it!!!

                                                                  Location

                                                                  East End, Cayman Islands

                                                                  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.

Requests outside of that are considered non-standard, and we may not be able to accommodate your request, or additional charges could apply. The reasoning is it could create a condition where we are only able to rent it for one week during a two week period.
