We specifically picked this condo because of its distance from Georgetown(an easy 45-50min drive). The area of Cayman Kai is beautiful and the snorkeling is great. Our condo had everything we needed and having a private pool was exactly what I was looking for without renting a whole house. The area is quiet with Kaibo restaurant nearby and Rum Point is less than 5min drive with a great beach and facilities. We didn't "swim" in the beach outside the condo since it is primarily turtle grass and not the white sand beach of SMB or Rum Point but we saw starfish larger than my hands and tons of small fish and sea urchins when snorting around. There are no grocery stores/liquor stores nearby so we picked up groceries in Georgetown and planned around the shorter grocery store hours. My only wishes for the condo next time would be more beach towels, better kitchen knives(almost all were dull and we love cooking on vacation!) and most of the dishes/kitchen utensils we went to use were still a little dirty. That wasn't an issue as I just pre-washed all the dishes I planned on using, but it would have been nice to not have to. There were stocked games, cable tv, and a few books for when you needed a little break from being outside and the AC worked perfectly(we kept it about 78 comfortably). An outdoor shower made rinsing our gear off super easy. Can't wait to stay here again!
Our stay at the Pools was very relaxing - the unit was clean and fresh and well laid out with lots of space for our group of 4 adults and a 3 year old.
The Rum Point area is very beautiful, with some nice restaurants and good beaches nearby, but it is about a 50 minute drive to Georgetown. Not a big deal if you want a lot of privacy but a long hike for groceries and night life.
Cayman is generally quite expensive, but we felt this was a touch expensive given the distance from amenities.
A great place if you want to relax in your own company.
