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 sit 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. Having the main TV in a separate room allows those who want to watch TV or play a movie/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.  

Hilltime's Unique Features

  • West King Master Suite: Oceanfront suite with a king-sized bed, wall mounted LED TV, oceanfront balcony with glass-panel railing, large ensuite bath with dual vanity, walk-in shower, and makeup table.

  • West Queen Master Suite: Oceanfront suite with queen sized bed, large closet, balcony overlooking the beach, and ensuite bath with stand-alone shower.
  • East Queen Master Suite: Oceanfront suite with queen sized bed, private balcony, large closet, and ensuite bathroom with stand-alone shower.
  • East Twin Bedroom: Twin bedroom (can make up as a king) with large closet, private balcony with lounge chaises, and adjacent large bathroom with combination tub/shower.

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.

Hilltime for a good time


         
Review by Cayman Crew on 06/19/2019
5 out of 5
Hilltime is a beautiful home with gorgeous views. Home is exactly as pictured. We enjoyed the quietness away from 7 mile beach. We had the ocean to ourselves. It is a little rocky so bring your water shoes. Kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals. We also enjoyed grilling and eating outside by the pool. There are a few restaurants in Rum Point that we enjoyed (Tukka, The Lighthouse and KAIBO Beach Restaurant). While visiting 7 mile beach we had a bite to eat at Sharkeez (good food, drinks and music). The owner was quick to respond to emails as we had a few questions upon arrival. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Hill for sharing your home.

Beautiful Place to Spend Time with Family

We thoroughly enjoyed our too short week here spending time with our family. The house, the beach, the sun. Even had a bit of excitement saving a visiting neighbor who got caught on the other side of the channel you warned us about. I will definitely recommend Hilltime to clients.

Wonderful Time

Had a wonderful time enjoying the sun and ocean since we live in Michigan with weather in the 0s and 20-below when we left to come to Cayman. Thank you for sharing your magnificent home with us!

This perfect house has given us a perfect holiday. Our first break in 12 years!! There is not one thing to be improved. Thank you so very much!

Great Family Get-A-Way


         
Review by DeWitt on 04/06/2019

Location is PERFECT. Your own private beach with comfortable lounge chairs and beautiful view. Away from crowds at 7 mile beach, but close enough to Rum Point to enjoy some "Local Amenities" (Food, Cocktails, Water Sports, Charters, etc.). Property Manager is the owner, and is very helpful and responsive. Took entire family of 9 (6 Adults / 3 children) and there was plenty of room for everyone. "Grand Cayman Villas & Condos" and their "Silver Thatch Service" is OUTSTANDING. (Including in your rental costs, they offer you Cribs, High Chairs, Booster Chairs, Snorkel Equipment and a whole host of other items that you do NOT want to have to pack and bring with you, at no additional charge).
Manager Response:

Thank you for your kind review. Silver Thatch is always finding new complimentary items to better our guest experiences on island!

Please come back soon!

Highly Recommend Hilltime


         
Review by --- on 04/06/2019

Owner is VERY responsive in any help/needs you have. House is beautiful and view is even better!!!! Quiet relaxing location with easy and quick access to Rum Point! Beach is kept clean and beautiful, but be forewarned that the water is a bit \"rocky\" right in front. (You\'ll need to wade over the rocks to get to a more sandy soft spot). House has all the amenities you need, and what it doesn\'t have \"Silver Thatch Services\" can probably provide. Highly recommended!

6 STARS!!!


         
Review by Robert on 03/21/2019

If I could leave a 6th Star I would. My wife selected this house over a year ago to spend our 30th Wedding Anniversary here for 9 days with 3 other couples. The location is perfect with a beautiful beach and snorkeling out front, and a beautiful pool out back. The entire property is well maintained and Bob Hill was great to work with and answered any questions we had while we were there. Each of the 4 bedrooms has their own balcony area overlooking the beach, and there is more than ample outdoor seating and chase lounges throughout the property. The kitchen was very well stocked with service for 8+ with everything you need. Our favorite area was the great room overlooking the beach where we spent a lot of time playing games, eating and drinking. Our only difficulty was choosing to spend time at the pool or the beach. Rum Point Beach with a couple restaurants and stores is a little over half mile away, and an easy walk. This part of the Island was really nice and quiet. We hope to return someday with our entire family. You won\'t be disappointed.

Grand Cayman Villas

The best villa


         
Review by Di on 03/02/2019
5 out of 5
We generally rent villas for our vacations. Hill time was by far, the best ever. To begin with, it was immaculate. No offensive smells or heavy air fresheners. All rooms were beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and accessories. The kitchen was amazing. So often, you come to expect less than desirable equipment in rental kitchens. Not so with Hilltime. Each room had a view of the sea. We ate alfresco every meal. When the wind got up we dined poolside. The water was not the pristine beach as at 7 mile beach, but the lack of crowds more than made up for it. We cannot say enough about the quality of this villa. The owners should be proud.

Amazing time at Hilltime!

I’m not sure where to begin. I’m a professional travel advisor & have booked vacations for clients and my family for years but this one was really special. We LOVED Hilltime. The house was perfect for our needs; we are a family of 3 adult couples & my mother-in-law. Each bedroom has it’s on bathroom which was perfect. We loved the open concept and had some wicked games of Great Dahlmudie at the big table. The beach area is perfect & was cleaned of the annoying grass/seaweed twice during our stay. If it’s windy out it’s hard to kayak or snorkel there but when the winds subside it’s perfect. We used the kayaks & snorkeled by the reef & channel. Speaking of the channel; the owner Bob warned us to be careful by it as the tow can be fierce. I don’t think the people renting the house to the west of us were warned about this. They took a kayak over the reef & ended up in the water. My husband & son-in-law were able to get out there & bring them back safely. It was pretty scary though. In short, this was a great vacation & we LOVED Hilltime.

Amazing House

Spent my 60th birthday celebration with 7 of girlfriends and from the time he hit the front door we were delighted with every aspect of the house. The house manager Robert was awesome. Anything we needed he was available to assist us. And by the way the pictures on the website don’t begin to do this house justice. Loved the pool and beach also.

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!


         
Review by Diane on 06/23/2018

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


         
Review by Wendy on 05/12/2018

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.
