This sprawling villa consists of a main house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus an optional 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest cottage.

The king and queen guest bedrooms in main house share a full bath with the king bedroom opening onto the screened porch, and the queen bedroom opening to the front porch.

All bedrooms come furnished with flat-screen TVs.

Great Escape’s interiors are clean and modern, with cool tile floors and modern decor.

A gourmet kitchen sits just off of the front porch and comes equipped with granite countertops, island breakfast bar with stool seating, and a full range of modern appliances. Cookware, dishware, cutlery, and coffeemaker are all provided.

Boasting one of the largest residential swimming pools in Cayman Kai, Greate Escapae's outdoor amenities are top-notch. The pool features a built-in table top with submerged bar seating and an umbrella for shade (optional pool heat is available at $250 per week). The pool deck overlooks the tranquil cove and is furnished with chaise loungers, patio umbrellas, and plush patio sofas. Guests can enjoy al fresco dining under the stars by the pool deck, or under the roofed cabana by the water. With its own private pier, guests can dock boat rentals and jet skis in the backyard, or hire a private boat charter to pick them up right off the dock. On the occasional lazy day, guests can relax across the large, beachfront screened porch with comfortable seating, or play a friendly game of ping pong without losing the breeze or oceanviews.

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Location and layout of properrty and house is stellar for combined families and children. Rum Pointe was ideal for our family. Our trip to the Island was fabulous. Grand Cayman Villas and Silver Thatch services, professional and friendly staff. Thank you. Issues we experienced with house, inefficient HVAC system in the main house, bedrooms either too cold with second and third bedrooms too hot with noisy ceilinng fans. The small guests house was musty, our son and his families allergies kicked in. Purple bedroom mattress needs to be replaced with firmer mattress.

Your very own resort In paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the property. Plenty to do to keep our party of 8 satisfied because getting to Seven Mile beach from Rum Point is quite a long trip and driving at night was not easy. If you want peace and quiet this is the place. We had a little trouble getting in touch with the property manager but to his defense there was a wind storm on the island and he was very busy. The pool was very dirty from the storm - we cleaned it ourselves because we were unable to get in touch with Ron and the safe was locked but after it was open it still did not work for us - could have Been operator error. Small issues - great time! We will return to CAY MAN - the island is beautiful!

Wonderful time and amazing property!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Great Escape for a week and absolutely loved it. We have traveled all over the world and stayed in numerous accommodations. This was by far our favorite. The property was immaculate and accommodated our family of six adults and two children perfectly. Everything about this property was great!!! We spent our days swimming in the pool, fishing off the dock, lounging in the screened in porch, playing games, grilling, and kayaking in the cove. We have stayed on Seven Mile Beach twice before and all agree that staying at Great Escape and near Rum Point was far better. It's a much quieter pace, low key, and very safe with no crowds. We loved walking down the street to Rum Point, grabbing coffee at the Kaibo Expresso Bar, and dancing at the Kaibo Tuesday night Barefoot BBQ. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to go back. One recommendation we would make is to pay the extra and have the pool heated. We are so happy that we had it heated. Thank you again to the owners for sharing this wonderful property and allowing our family to have such an amazing time in Grand Cayman.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of four, two teenagers and two adults stayed at the property and it was perfect. The home was very clean and the perfect layout for hanging out. We really enjoyed the outdoor area around the pool and the screened in porch...very private so we could play music and hang late if we wanted. We used the paddle board and the two kayaks everyday to cruise up and down the inlet. Really nice being so close to Rum Point...yes, just a walk away to see the ocean, grab a bite to eat or relax with a drink. People very friendly and nice.

Nothing negative but I will mention that we were there the first week of June (start of rain season) and if the wind was not blowing, the mosquitos were a problem. All the outdoor restaurants came to the table with bug spray just in case. We had lots of ocean air so was only a problem one evening. I would definitely stay at Rum Point versus Seven Mile Beach for the privacy and beauty. Great vacation.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of ten stayed at the Great Escape in July 2014 for one week. We had three adult couples who stayed in the main house and in the cottage four female cousins aged 20, 16, 16 and 7. This house was perfect for us and we all loved it!! I cannot say enough about this house, the island, and Rum Point Beach! We used the paddle board and kayaks every day and just loved the pool area. We barbecued a few times and had whatever we needed in the kitchen. The store is about a 20 minute drive. Be advised that everything is closed on Sundays. We were met upon arrival by a nice woman who showed us around the house and gave us information we needed for the week. The beds were comfortable, the house was very clean, the grounds were beautiful. It was a perfect vacation and we cannot wait to come back to this wonderful house. My family plans on visiting again soon!! You will be very happy you rented this house in the quiet, beautiful area of Cayman Kai.

Car: recommended

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The cove-front homes in “Cayman Kai�� (within Rum Point) offer calm serene water for docking a rental boat, permitting charter captain pick-up or just safe shallow water for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove (rum point is too nice by comparison) —the water is shallow and has a softer bottom and there is no reef here for fish life...but AT GREAT ESCAPE...the best white sand beach is literally right out the front door. You get the boest of both worlds at Great Escape; a private backyard, pool and boat dock well as proximity to the Rum point Club...AND a perfect beach across the street. The beaches are flat white barefoot sand. There is usually little breeze here to speak of. Many homes in Cayman Kai offer a screened porch. The big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. ( ) It is from the Rum Point pier that the 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina ( Just a great neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas. Click our map on the home page. Lastly…about 20 minutes east we have (2) large resorts in the east end ( and ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a coffee/pastry shop). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. and offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
