Welcome to Abita Kai (pronounced A-bit-a Kai), an airy oceanfront villa with private pool and new dock on a barefoot, white sand beach in Cayman Kai. The calm shallow waters behind this unique villa offer a wide palette of blue and turquoise colors as well as warm orange sunsets. 

The most unique feature of Abita Kai is that the villa, pool area, and beach are all wheelchair-accessible. The elevator, pool lift, and a beach wheelchair are available upon request.  It is the only larger luxury villa in the Rum Point area that offers this level of accessibility, while also being friendly for those who don't need the accessibility items. 

The estate includes a 3 bedroom-4 bathroom villa and a detached 2 bedroom-2 bathroom guest cottage above the garage. With a galley kitchen and living/TV area, the detached cottage is a great option for teenagers, grandparents, pilots or staff to live on-premises but maintain privacy by having two roofs within the same oceanfront estate, all within walking distance of restaurants and watersports.

In the summer months, the homeowner offers a discounted rate for small groups (8 or fewer guests) renting the 3BR/4BA main house only—see Rates tab for pricing.

The oceanfront two-story screened atrium spans the entire width of the main house, allowing guests to savor tropical Caribbean views from all 3 oceanfront bedroom suites, including the living room and kitchen. 

This home ticks all the boxes for a large, active family looking for the privacy of a luxury villa on a calm, swimmable barefoot beach but within walking distance of The Kaibo Marina & Restaurants. The Kaibo offers water sports, a fine-dining restaurant, downstairs bar, casual restaurant with take-out service, coffee shop and marina with fishing, snorkel and scuba charters.  A passenger ferry service, operated by Cayman Ferries, departs to Camana Bay & Seven Mile Beach from the Kaibo Marina.

Beach Notes

Abita Kai enjoys a beautiful barefoot white-sandy beach and northwestern sunset views facing the Stingray Sandbar & protective reef. You can walk barefoot all the way down to Starfish Point about 1/2 mile away, and north for about 1/2 mile as well. 

The Kaibo is only 200 yards from the house and is an excellent place to grab your morning coffee, a casual lunch, takeout pizza for the kids, or enjoy an elegant dinner in their "Upstairs" fine dining restaurant.

The Kaibo also has a marina and is where many private charters will collect guests for private deep-sea fishing trips, snorkel safaris, or charters to Stingray City. Cayman Ferries also departs from the Kaibo across the sound to Camana Bay and Seven Mile Beach. It's the perfect day trip for guests wanting to explore, shop, or dine on Seven Mile Beach.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high water mark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally. Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation. We try our best to work around mother nature.

This marks our third trip to Grand Cayman and first time to the Cayman Kai area. If you are looking to get away from crowds and still have area restaurants, activities, sun and views, Abita Kai is the spot! Clean home in super condition. Guesthouse was a great bonus as we had a large family coming for parts of two weeks. We have already booked next summer!

Summer in Heaven

We spent 6 nights at Abita Kai this summer. Many spots on island had seaweed issues, but the beach at Abita Kai was clean and perfect our entire stay. We loved the location - walks to starfish point, Kaibo, Rum Point. The bioluminescent bay night tour with Sweet Spot is a must. Nice, comfortable beds. Lots of room for 10 of us! Highly recommend!

Simply Fabulous

Abita Kai is a wonderful home! Kids had a blast in the pool and swimming out front. Kayaks and paddleboard were a great addition! The Kaibo up the street is fantastic. Brick oven pizza, great lunch. Upstairs restaurant was so good we ate there twice. Great experience with Grand Cayman Villas in recommending the home to us. We would stay here again and again.

Abita Kai - beautiful home, well maintained, lots of space, elevator for disabled father. It was like the home was built for our family! Great location and view. Lots to do. Booking process was helpful and easy. Recommendations for restaurants were spot on! We had a local cook for a night - that was the best meal of the week! Stingray charter picked us up from the dock - Silver Thatch Charters with Joe! A must. Abita Kai does not disappoint!

Piece of Heaven

Everyone says they ret the best house. Unless they are speaking about Abita Kai, they are wrong. This house has everything - view, pool, barefoot beach, swimming, paddleboarding, we rented jet skis, dock, walk to restaurants and starfish point. Management was helpful in planning. Local home namager was responsive. Best vacation with our family ever! Hope to be back soon!
