Hilltime is a large single-story beachfront villa located in Rum Point along the north coast of Grand Cayman. The most notable feature of this home—besides the views!—is the vaulted great room's cypress tongue-and-groove ceiling. It's sure to capture your eye as you stare off across the impressive ocean views. The beach here is wide and very sandy with superb snorkeling inside the reef protected shallows. The property sits on a deep estate of over an acre with heavily-landscaped grounds. Plenty of off-street parking is available with room to turn around.

A small freshwater pool and elevated sun deck sits on the land-side of the villa, protecting guests from the breezes in the winter and absorbing the sun's rays all day long. Triangular "sail shades" and lounge chairs surround the pool plus a covered cabana and propane grill for island cookouts. 

Hilltime is unique in that it has 8-foot-tall doors throughout and tall ceilings to keep the rooms and tile floors cool with central A/C.  The entry foyer is a very wide gallery that spans the width of the home accentuating the size of the house and open architecture of the great room. 

Inside, the open great room is a welcoming retreat after a day on the beach with enough space for the whole family to gather and help prepare dinner, play a game of cards, or just kick back and watch the waves break on the reef. A full gourmet kitchen comes equipped with modern appliances including dishware, utensils, glassware, cookware, and cutlery.  The decor and colors are very soothing and well-coordinated. The villa shows that the owners care deeply and keep it in pristine condition.

Hilltime also offers a private media room with sectional sofa, large LED TV, Apple TV, and Xbox. Having the main TV in a separate room allows those who want to watch TV or play a video game to close the door and not disturb those in the great room putting together a puzzle, enjoying the views, or prepping meals in the large kitchen.

Although the home has pure desalinated (reverse-osmosis) water at the tap; the owners provide a 5 gallon water cooler to encourage guests to be environmentally conscious and not purchase flats of bottled water at the grocery.

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 oceanfront homes in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but can also have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection. The prevailing trade winds from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many 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

Lastly, we have two large resorts in the east end (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.

Perfect Cayman Getaway

We loved our time at Hilltime, the house was magnificent. The pool was great and the view was truly a million dollar view. The owners are amazing and are always handy with tips and advice about the island.

Fantastic Home!

Hilltime is an absolutely beautiful home which we enjoyed tremendously. From the fantastic views to beautiful rooms, we were thrilled to get exactly what was presented. Although the sargassum weed was in town, we enjoyed all aspects of the home, pool, beach, Rum Point and beyond. Silver Thatch staff was very accommodating and great to work with!
Manager Response:

Thank you for the review. Without the sargasso seaweed, Hilltime is fantastic. Wish we could control Mother Nature. The seaweed will be gone in a month or less...

Wonderful well-appointed home!

We stayed at Hilltime for a family graduation celebration. The entire experience with renting the home was very positive. We were well-communicated with prior to, during and after the vacation by the realty company and there were no surprises. The house was lovely - very comfortable and perfect for our gathering. The kitchen is well-appointed with high-end finishes and appliances and the bedrooms/bathrooms were very nice as well. The pool area was great and the beach was fantastic. If you rent this home and like to snorkel, just be careful of the current that flows through the passage out front. Our teenagers got caught a bit unaware of the challenge out there and had a bit of a scare. Overall a lovely home and great for vacation!

Wonderful villa!

Hilltime is a spectacular property with amazing sea views, large open spaces, large bedrooms and a very well appointed kitchen with every gadget you might need. The four bed, four bath villa was perfect for us and our three adult children and their partners. The location at Rum Point was exactly what we wanted for relaxing, diving and sailing. It is well away from the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach. The Wreck Bar at Rum Point, about a mile from Hilltime, was lots of fun. Two miles or so away is Starfish Beach and the Kaibo Yacht Club where we were picked up for diving and sailing. The only suggestion for the unit is a larger sofa in the living area. The cable system was out when we arrived but we called and the problem was fixed the next morning. Everyone we interacted with was very courteous and responsive to our needs. We loved the hammock under the coconut trees and the swimming pool!

First Time on Grand Cayman

This was our first time on Grand Cayman and friends recommended the Rum Point area to us. The management company was helpful in directing us to the right home based on our family needs. We were so pleased with our choice of Hilltime! The home far exceeds the photos, especially the open living area and kitchen! All of the bedrooms had wonderful views. Obviously the owners take great care of their home. It shows in every aspect. The beach was wonderful and we spent every afternoon in the water, snorkeling, swimming and kayaking. We saw literally thousands of fish. The Rum Point area is perfect for families. We spent time at Rum Point Club and the Kaibo Marina. Both have activities, sun and shade. The kids loved Rum Point. We loved the location and the rum drinks!!! We will come back to Grand Cayman and we will come back to Hilltime!!!

Great house for couples trip


         
Review by CLR on 05/26/2018

Our group of 4 couples stayed at Hilltime in May. The house was perfect for couples; 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms allowing everyone their own space. Upon request, one bedroom was set up from twin/twin to a king for the 4th couple. The house had every needed amenity; appliances all high end, kitchen items all top quality and lacked for nothing. Lots of extras normally not found in vacation rentals like spices, oils, water cooler dispenser (no need for bottled water) and good supply of basic items normally not supplied. The extra den/TV room was very nice with a comfy sectional. The views from every bedroom and main living area was the best feature of the house! Having our own private sandy beach was a treat; clean of natural sea debris compared to some of the neighboring properties. Tip:bring water shoes as ocean entry is rocky with coral, bring bug spray for early morning, dusk & evenings. We ordered delivery from Italian Kitchen (east end) on the night of our arrival; delicious. We enjoyed a full moon dinner at Tukka; very special; dinners at Kaibo and Rum Point; pricey but great atmosphere/tasty. Another highlight of our trip was the private silver thatch charter for snorkeling and sting ray beach. Only some minor suggestions: have house temp set at comfortable level upon arrival (our first night was unbearably hot, but we were told thermostat was mistakenly not lowered as the house had not been used the week prior). Would be nice to provide larger beach towels vs. bath size towels for the beach; and provide instructions for thermostat and dishwasher as we had some user issues. We did need to call the house manager a few times; when the alarm system went off on our arrival (we were not given the code/instructions before we arrived for some reason; the security system works very well, extremely loud and the security company called immediately); we needed thermostat help; and to get a net to skim the pool. Our issues, however, were resolved very quickly.
