10 Guests
4 Bedrooms

Great Escape is located on a quiet cove in Cayman Kai merely a few steps from the Rum Point Club. 

This sprawling villa consists of a main house, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, plus an optional 1 bedroom and 1 bath guest cottage. Renting both the villa and cottage gives guests two superb master king suites to choose from, plus additional king and queen guest bedrooms. With a large, freshwater swimming pool, barefoot sandy beach, and spacious interiors Great Escape is a fantastic property for your island getaway. 

The oceanfront master king suite in the main house opens to the screened porch and features an ensuite bath with enormous walk-in shower. The king and queen guest bedrooms in the main house share a full bath with the king bedroom opening onto the screened porch, and the queen bedroom opening to the front porch.

The guest cottage comes furnished with a king bed and day bed (sleeps 2 children) and includes a full bathroom, kitchenette, and private screened porch with plenty of comfortable seating. All bedrooms come furnished with flat-screen TVs.

Great Escape’s interiors are clean and modern, with cool tile floors and modern decor. Plenty of windows and sliding glass doors open onto the pool deck and fill the home with natural light and gorgeous views. 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.

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 lined 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 waterfront. 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.

Beach Notes

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 offer calm serene water for docking a rental boat, charter boat pick-up, or just safe shallow swimming for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove as the Rum Point Club is too nice by comparison.

You get the best of both worlds at Great Escape: a backyard facing the cove with a private pool and boat dock, proximity to the Rum Point Club, plus an idyllic beach across the street.  Public right-of-way beach access is located diagonally across the street.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, water sports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club featuring a fine dining restaurant, a casual beach bar and grill, and a marina. Overall, Cayman Kai is a fabulous neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas and sweeping views.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east we have two large resorts (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.

The 10% Guest Service Fee includes your Silver Thatch Membership. 

The service fee is capped at seven days for extended stays.

What a Great Escape!

Three couples have been going to Rum Point and renting a house for 3 years. Each year has been a different house. This year we rented Great Escape through Grand Cayman Villas. The booking process was easy and when I had a question Scott Naurath was always available. I never had to leave a message. Without a doubt the best part of the Great Escape is the pool. It is huge. We paid extra to have it heated and we spent most of our time in the pool. The house is nice. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen have been updated and look great. We also added the guest cottage in our rental. It need the updating they have done to the rest of the house. Another thing that is great about this property is that it is a short walk, maybe 3 houses, from Rum Point which has great food and drink. You can also snorkel from the beach at Rum Point. Overall, I would definitely rent this house again.

Best. Vacation. Ever. Amazing. Beautiful. Relaxing.

Great Escape is a beautiful home in the perfect location. A truly luxurious property with an amazing pool and a short walk to Rum Point Beach, which is fantastic. I can't say enough about the house, the pool, the beach, the island. It truly was a perfect vacation. Although it is a drive to the other side of the island, we preferred the relaxing, quiet and island feel of Cayman Kai. The photos of Great Escape are very accurate except honestly I think the pool is bigger than it looks in the photos. Grand Cayman Villas handled our reservation in a professional, timely and courteous manner. They answered all of my questions promptly. They provided lots of information about the island, the property, restaurants, car rentals, etc. Upon arrival there were a couple minor issues (not worth mentioning) but the Villa Manager answered my call immediately and things were taken care of within 20 minutes. The owners of the property were a pleasure to deal with as well. We received an email from them before our stay with helpful information about the property and the island. We spoke by phone and met in person briefly on arrival. They were nothing but helpful and friendly. Highly recommend Great Escape and Grand Cayman Villas. It might be a few years but we will definitely be back.

Great Family Vacation

This house is amazing. Every room is comfortable. The master suite is gorgeous and spacious. The pool area is fantastic and all the outdoor furniture is comfortable. We lounged by the pool every afternoon while our little one napped. The walk to Rum Point Beach was easy and the beach was fun. We enjoyed being on this side of the island and could not have asked for a better house!

Renames: Great Choice

3BR/2Ba "Great Escape" & 1BR/1Ba Guest Cottage are located on the quiet cove in Cayman Kai (only steps from the Rum Point Club) on the north coast. This one story private villa is a great family or couples choice and offers a white sand barefoot beach amid palm trees that offer guests shade from the Caribbean sun. Great Escape is configured to meet the needs of the large family with a sizable "L"-shaped freshwater swimming pool, even including optional pool heat in winter ($250/wk).

Great for Families who want some seclusion and privacy

Service from our booking company (grandcaymanvillas.net) was fantastic. I will 100% use them again after we received nothing but total professional treatment from a clearly great operation. The house was top notch. Our party had 4 houses booked and this was the nicest one for a family, in my view, despite not being on the beach. Only a few minor complaints about the house itself, the hot water heater is a little small for the expected heavy usage especially with a dual head master shower, also septic tank can be a little trouble if you overuse water, so just be mindful. The outdoor pool area was great for relaxation. No beach access of course makes it a little less desirable, but I preferred this over the beach access houses in terms of livability. The amenities were awesome1 Kitchen, awesome layout and very inviting if with a group from other parts of the island. All high end appliances (kitchen aide and whirlpool super quiet washer). Interior design, well above average, all rooms color coordinated perfectly. Fixtures were all new and top shelf. Master bedroom and bathroom were super! Your wife / girlfriend will adore you for being able to spend time in this room. House is all 1 level, which makes getting around very easy! In house Wifi / phone / cable is nice, but who wants to watch TV? Side rooms for other couples / kids are great. The pool house is great since it is separate and self contained of the main house, so it allows a little separation. Location is far from grocery stores, as you are warned, so make sure you stock up. The service from the manager was great as well. We had a leaking toilet that was causing the septic to not flush water and they had a plumber out within 1 hour on a Sunday! That is great service. I almost don't want to talk the house up too much, so I can book it again. I would not suggest for young people looking to economize or 'party it up', but great for 30 and up couples and those with families.
