4BR-Great Escape - Cayman Kai Cove

  • 10 Guests
  • 4 Bedrooms
  •  3 Bathrooms

Great Escape is located on a quiet cove in Cayman Kai on the north coast only 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, 1 bath guest cottage. Rental of 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 oceanfront swimming pool, white-sand barefoot beach, and spacious interiors Great Escape is a great property for your island getaway. 

The oceanfront master king suite in the main house opens to the screened porch and features a private ensuite bath with an enormous walk-in shower. The king and queen guest bedrooms in 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. 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 furnished 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 water. 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. 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.

With its spacious interiors and stellar outdoor amenitites, Great Escape is the perfect vacation villa for large family vacations or multiple couples on a tropical getaway.

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, permitting charter boat pick-up, or just safe shallow swimming for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove as nearby Rum Point is too nice by comparison--the water is shallow with a softer bottom and no reef for marine life. 

You get the boest of both worlds at Great Escape: a private backyard pool and boat dock access, plus proximity to the Rum point Club, and and an idyllic beach across the street. The beaches are flat white barefoot sand. There is usually little breeze here to speak of. Many homes in Cayman Kai offer a screened porch to keep flying bug and insects at bay.

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 restaurant, bar and marina. Overall, the area is a great neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east we have 2 large resorts (Morritts 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, windsurfering, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.

Your very own resort In paradise

          5 out of 5
Reviewed by Tracy on 01/06/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the property. Plenty to do to keep our party of 8 satisfied because getting to Seven Mile beach from Rum Point is quite a long trip and driving at night was not easy. If you want peace and quiet this is the place. We had a little trouble getting in touch with the property manager but to his defense there was a wind storm on the island and he was very busy. The pool was very dirty from the storm - we cleaned it ourselves because we were unable to get in touch with Ron and the safe was locked but after it was open it still did not work for us - could have Been operator error. Small issues - great time! We will return to CAY MAN - the island is beautiful!




Just an AWESOME place to stay.

The pictures of Great Escape painted an accurate picture of what to expect when you arrive. With nine of us staying at the house it was nice to have so much space. Having the kayaks and paddleboard were nice to have and Rum Point is within easy walking distance of the house. We spent hours hanging out by the pool and the bay just relaxing. The ping pong table was a nice addition. For nine of us, we rented two cars from Marshalls which gave us more flexibility to go different places if we chose to, but never did. Staying at Rum Point is great if you are looking to relax, but if you are looking for nightlife and crowds, go to 7-mile beach. On your way to the house from the airport, definitely stop at one of the grocery stores because it is a good 40-45 minute drive if you don’t. Also, stop at the liquor store. For travelers from the USA and Canada, and probably other countries as well, be prepared for the exchange rate. This caught us off guard and we definitely spent more on food than expected. We chartered a boat one day to go snorkeling and visit Stingray City. We happened to meet Captain Chris who operates out of Nativeway Watersports and chartered a boat for the whole day for $800 which was a bargain compared to other companies. Lastly, definitely grab the Explore magazine for the maps and a copy of the Free News to find out what is going on. I would definitely stay at the house again without hesitation.

We rented Great Escape for a week and absolutely loved it. We have traveled all over the world and stayed in numerous accommodations. This was by far our favorite. The property was immaculate and accommodated our family of six adults and two children perfectly. Everything about this property was great!!! We spent our days swimming in the pool, fishing off the dock, lounging in the screened in porch, playing games, grilling, and kayaking in the cove. We have stayed on Seven Mile Beach twice before and all agree that staying at Great Escape and near Rum Point was far better. It's a much quieter pace, low key, and very safe with no crowds. We loved walking down the street to Rum Point, grabbing coffee at the Kaibo Expresso Bar, and dancing at the Kaibo Tuesday night Barefoot BBQ. We highly recommend this property and can't wait to go back. One recommendation we would make is to pay the extra and have the pool heated. We are so happy that we had it heated. Thank you again to the owners for sharing this wonderful property and allowing our family to have such an amazing time in Grand Cayman.




Amazing outdoor area

Reviewed by Lindsay on 02/19/2017
We stayed at Great Escape in Feb. 2017. We had 2 families and between us there were 7 kids 7 and under. While the inside of the place was great, the outside area totally made the trip for us! There was so much for everyone to do. The pool was amazing (I think the best pool for kids in all of Grand Cayman) it was shallow enough for them to touch bottom in almost all areas but was nice to have a deeper area as well for diving. It was also nice to have the option of the pool heat. We probably spent half of our vacation in the pool. I was also impressed with all the options for seating outside you could always find a sunny spot to lounge or a shady spot to stay out of the sun plus the all the tables for eating al fresco and the screened in porches were a great place to sit in the evenings (not that I really noticed any bugs). It was also great to be right on the water. While we did not swim in the bay behind the house (too many weeds and jellyfish) the kids loved making sand castles by the water, collecting shells, checking out the fish, kayaking and paddle boarding, and it was also great to be able to have the charter boat pick us up right at our own dock and take us out to see the stingrays. The place was also in a great location, so close to Rum point (about a 2 min walk) where we often went for meals and to swim at the beach. What a great vacation!

Frist visit to Grand Cayman in January with extended family and were lucky enough to book the Great Escape Villa through Grand Cayman Villas and Condos(.net). The staff at Grand Cayman Villas took great care of us throughout the planning process as well as during our stay. We enjoyed the pool daily and practically lived outside - only really went in to shower and sleep. The grounds and locale of the villa are extraordinary. The huge pool is magnificent. We paid for the pool heat and are glad we did even though we had a full week of glorious sunshine and warm temps. With the wind, it would have been a bit too cool without heat.The neighborhood is lovely - beautiful waterfront homes of all styles and sizes, yet nothing intimidating or snobbish about the area. You can walk between the homes to get to the beach and wander the sandy shoreline without bothering anyone. Rum point is just across the street, a 4 minute walk, but far enough away that you are not bothered by the cars or crowds (lucky for us, not many people here the week of Jan 10th). We snorkelled at the small reef at Rum Point and it is cool - lots of small fish. We also took the Red Sail catamaran tour out to Stingray City with snorkelling and highly recommend this vendor which you book right at their kiosk at Rum Point. Back to the house - we actually booked the house and the guest cottage due to the sleeping configuration needed for our group, so we had more interior space than we could ever have needed. As for the pool, grounds and outside areas, this place was idyllic. We used the kayaks and paddle board daily to paddle down to the open ocean and go swimming or just float along the shore to admire the amazing properties. We even took the kayaks out at night and realized that the backyard IS the bioilluminescent bay (althought, it doesn't shimmer quite as much as the photos you see on the internet). Still quite an amazing thing right in your back yard. I hope to get a chance to visit again.

Great Escape is truly as magical and majestic as the photos! I spent a week at the Great Escape with my boyfriend and we could not have been more thrilled with the location, property, and amenities. We felt spoiled to have a private pool and ocean at our feet and loved using the kayak and paddle board right from the property. This house is simply gorgeous and has everything you could want including an equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and couch, a large entertainment center, and a ping pong table. In fact, we enjoyed the house so much that we rarely wanted to leave! When we did venture off the property, we enjoyed the close proximity to Rum Point and Kaibo for nightlife and dancing. Stingray City is also a short boat ride from Rum Point- a must see! We have already recommended Great Escape to friends and will continue to do so. We can't wait to go back!

My family of four, two teenagers and two adults stayed at the property and it was perfect. The home was very clean and the perfect layout for hanging out. We really enjoyed the outdoor area around the pool and the screened in porch...very private so we could play music and hang late if we wanted. We used the paddle board and the two kayaks everyday to cruise up and down the inlet. Really nice being so close to Rum Point...yes, just a walk away to see the ocean, grab a bite to eat or relax with a drink. People very friendly and nice. Nothing negative but I will mention that we were there the first week of June (start of rain season) and if the wind was not blowing, the mosquitos were a problem. All the outdoor restaurants came to the table with bug spray just in case. We had lots of ocean air so was only a problem one evening. I would definitely stay at Rum Point versus Seven Mile Beach for the privacy and beauty. Great vacation.

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.

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).

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.
