beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

peaceful, quiet setting, house was fabulous - stocked kitchen with all you could need. Awesome sunsets, pool used each day. Comfy bdrms-private baths. Screened porch used each day, inside furnishings very comfortable. 4 kayaks a plus. only issue, air conditioning not working in upstairs hallway where grand kids were staying...TOO HOT, ended up sleeping in their parents bed. were told part was ordered but never fixed in the 2 woks we were renting. Day 4 the manager bought a floor fan to move the air in hallway. Would def rent again- but need air conditioning fixed. would give a 5 star if air cond. were working. Thnaks you to the owners for sharing your beautiful spot on one of our favorite islands!

From the moment we pulled in the driveway my jaw was on the floor. And it just kept getting better. We stayed in the main house of Moon Kai for about a week with 5 couples. It was more than enough space. Our bedroom (with an en suite full bath) was on the first floor and even with 9 other people in the house you couldn't hear a sound- and I went to bed early every night. From our bedroom there was an attached porch with a view overlooking the white sand into the ocean. It was like our own little piece of heaven. Waking up to that view never got old. Every morning we thought how lucky we were to be there. The common areas were spacious and had the most comfortable furniture and the kitchen was great to cook in. There was plenty of room for all of us to stretch out on the sectional- when we weren't spending time outdoors. The pool area was incredible. The beach pristine. I loved the greenery surrounding the property it made you feel like no one else was around. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy. Some days we would walk down the beach and snorkel our way back, others we would stop at Rum Point for cocktails. We chartered a boat that took us to sting ray city, snorkeling, then to a shoreline that was peppered with giant red star fish. It was the coolest experience ever. I'll never forget this vacation, it's at the top of my list.

Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

The only problem with this fabulous house is that you will not want to leave it to venture around the island. Accommodated two families exceedingly well. Held an intimate wedding under the twin palms steps from the pool deck and thoroughly enjoyed Rosie's catering for our nuptials celebration! Thanks for the Rosie recommendation by Jim and his crew. Wonderful memories made and a plan in the works for the return.

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online of Moon Kai do not do this place justice. Everything I read about was delivered beyond our expectations. The main house has a perfect layout to entertain and interact. Our stay was great! We had a flawless experience. The pool and beach were spectacular and clean. I would highly recommend staying at Moon Kai. This house must be one of the best on the island; secluded, intimate setting. Perfect.

Words cannot even begin to describe how unbelievable this vacation home is. My husband and I arrived with friends and could not believe our eyes when we walked through the door! I have been to the Caymans many times before, but have never quite experienced it like this. Everything in this house was designed with perfection in mind, and I think they definitely succeeded. Everything from the king sized beds, salt water infinity pool, and amazing sunsets right outside your back door made this trip unforgettable. I CANNOT wait until our next trip to Moon Kai!

Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect property to rent in Cayman Kai look no further than Moon Kai! I was in awe of this house from the moment I walked through the doors - it was immaculate, has an ideal layout, an amazing pool and deck and the location and sunset views are spectacular! Our group was several couples traveling together and each of us getting a private, perfectly air conditioned, king room with attached en suite and private deck with view was so wonderful. The kitchen was spacious and fully equipped and I loved that there was an outside dining table that sat all 12 of us within the screened-in porch. Just taking a walk down the beach it is easy to see that Moon Kai has the best landscaped beach front around! I loved how we could layout at the pool or on the sand and feel like we had our own private beach front. The view of the sunset was a highlight each night, you can watch it perfectly from Moon Kai! I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this property, I would recommend it to anyone - couples, families with children, and seniors (the house even has an elevator to the upstairs!). I really enjoyed being away from the crowded and touristy West Bay, but liked still being able to walk to restaurants and beach bars at Rum Point. This house is in walking distance to the Rum Point dock where you can book excursions such as boating to Sting Ray City which I also highly recommend! Hopefully we will find ourselves back in Grand Cayman soon and when we do, we will definitely be staying at Moon Kai!

Car: necessary

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the sound front in Cayman Kai offer the best beaches as they don������t have as much marine and plant life trying to make a home in the shallows. The beaches usually are soft white sand. The homes facing west offer barefoot swimming and shallow calm water. The sunsets are also wonderful, but 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 ( Click the map on our homepage for exact locations. 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.
