"An Island House at Cayman Kai, Rum Point has long been a pleasant alternative to a Hotel Room Vacation." More space! More privacy! More for your money!Located on a protected cove (Sand Pointe Cove) on the Caribbean Sea in the heart of the exclusive area of Cayman Kai on the north side of Grand Cayman and right across the road from the "Famous Rum Point Beach", these Island Houses are ideal for a family of up to six people or for one, two or three couples. Some Island Houses can sleep up to eight people. These Island Houses feature a living room, dining area, music/sun room, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room with washer and dryer, two story screened lanai (with 2 sets of 10 foot sliding doors that open to the lanai which allows you to enjoy the indoor/outdoor feeling) that overlooks the cove and offers additional seating and dining area, two bedrooms each with their own private bath, walk in closet, and balconies which overlook the pool and cove to enjoy.

Privately owned condos - leased out thru the season... beautiful and very well maintained. Beach side 1/2 mile from Rum Point ... very quiet and secluded on the North side of the Island... across the bay from the hustle and bustle of Georgetown. I've spent many a winter break there... Makes you smile when it's 90 degrees and your laying on the white sand beach... and it's snowing back home! A great retreat!

This was the worst trip ever! We booked our reservations over a year in advance and had to fly all the way to the island to find out that we were homeless!!! Our initial booking was for September 2017 but due to Hurricane Irma we had to reschedule and push our reservations to July 2018. Being that this date was so far out I called every 3 months right up till the day before departure to make sure everything was still in order. I was assured everything was okay all the way up to even going to the management office to pick up the keys. Once we arrived at the office we were advised that the property owner had already unlocked the property and that we could just go straight there. Upon arrival we learn that there’s already residents inside (after driving 45mins out). They had also made reservations for the exact same dates. When I called the management office at 4:45 (they close at 5pm) I had caught them right in time because they also didn’t have a clue that the owner had doubled book. The owner was NO HELP! We were homeless for about 3hrs. Had it not been for Noelle at the Cayman Villas management office we probably would’ve had to spend the night in our rental car. Lucky there was a seasonal resident who was nice enough to allow us to stay in her home for the remaining of our trip. I’ll contribute 1 star for this owner but the property “Gardens of the Kai” is amazing! Just make sure you don’t rent #9

We rented this house for a week in april 2018. Great location walking distance to starfish point.The kitchen was well equipped with pots pans & every utensil you could want. your backyard was the ocean.... the pool was good( needs a bit of repair) the hot tub was covered over & closed, (that would have been nice in the evenings)....several of the lounge chairs should be replaced they are ripped & sagging.There were plenty of toys & pool floats. There were tiny things that should be addressed maintenance wise ( doors sticking, not sliding easily, broken cleat on the dock ,screen door closer falling off, ripped screen) just little thing that were annoying. The mattresses should be replaced (which still has not been done).... we had 9 in our party & everyone had the same suggestion..... this property is part of the silver thatch program which is nice ... the silver thatch office has coolers, blue tooth radio, fins & snorkel gear you can borrow. they are located on the road that cuts through the middle of the island... also if you run low on liquor go to" water boyz" also on that same road but closer to the turn off to go to rum point..... all in all it was a great stay, the property just needs a bit of attention.

Be sure to do your homework on these houses, they are located on a canal, not directly on the ocean. There are piers and grass in the water and their are houses across the canal from these duplex houses. The area is peaceful and the houses are roomy. The screens go two stories high and allow the house to be completely opened by pushing the sliding doors completely back. This allows a nice sitting area and brings the outside in. The second story balcony is even enclosed by the screened in area. Rum Point is near these houses and provide a nice place to swim and snorkel within just a few minutes drive.
