Welcome to Kaiku, arguably the most lavish gated estate in all of Cayman Kai.  This sprawling villa sits on a double lot consisting of a 5 bedroom main house, and a detached 2 bedroom guest cottage. This luxurious estate can accommodate 15 guests, 13 adults max, making it the perfect island retreat for a large family vacation, or a relaxing adults getaway.

Vacationing at Kaiku provides guests with the utmost privacy. The main house is not visible from the road or the gated driveway. With no neighbors on either side and a lush sixteen-foot tall palm privacy hedge, guests can relax in complete seclusion throughout their stay.

Situated on a serene cove in Cayman Kai, guests will enjoy calm waters excellent for paddle-boarding and kayaking, and minimal trade winds in the winter.  With the Rum Point Club a mere 300 yards up the street and the Kaibo Marina a short 5-10 minute walk away, guests can relish the best of Cayman Kai. 

Kaiku’s Unique Outdoor Features

  • Large private beach with vibrant tropical landscaping, manicured grounds, and exterior lighting system
  • Spacious freshwater pool (with optional pool heat available in the winter) and poolside (heated) spa
  • Expansive pool deck with plush sectional sofa, canopy daybed, reclining chaise loungers, and patio umbrellas, plus an outdoor shower and half bath
  • Poolside kitchen with a propane grill, sink, fridge, ice maker, and ample counter space
  • Alfresco dining gazebo with table and seating for 4
  • 2 complementary tandem kayaks provided (signed waiver required)*
  • Large private dock with thatched cabana, outdoor shower, floating jet ski dock, and water entry stairway

With Kaiku's large dock, guests can rent a boat, Hobie cat, or jet skis and simply moor them behind the villa.  Alternatively, should you arrange a chartered cruise or snorkel safari you and your party can be picked up and dropped off from your own dock!  No trips to the public docks necessary. 

The main 5 bedroom house features an open concept design with vaulted ceilings and plenty of large windows allowing natural light to fill the home. Upon entering, you can’t help but gaze across the great room out on to the screened porch with sweeping water views of the cove. A modern kitchen, complete with gourmet appliances, overlooks the dining area and sits adjacent to a sunken living area making it the perfect spot for vacationing chefs to entertain while serving up a home-cooked meal.

With 4 bedrooms located on the upper floor, 2 on each wing of the home, and 1 bedroom on the lower level, guests will have plenty of room to unwind at the end of the day. A nursery, with an attached private zen garden, is located on the lower level. Perfect for guests with infants and toddlers, the nursery comes furnished with 2 cribs, a toddler bed, a changing table, and a nursing rocker.

Kaiku’s Unique Interior Features

  • Media Room on the lower level furnished with sectional sofa, flat-screen TV, video game console and sliding door access to the pool deck
  • Home office on the upper level with ocean views and furnished with 2 desks, all-in-one printer and scanner, small couch, coffee table, and a flat-screen TV
  • Interior and exterior home audio system
  • Home security system with exterior cameras and gated driveway
  • Laundry room with double washer and dryer, and overflow fridge
  • Flat-screen TVs throughout the home with HD cable programming

Equally impressive and cozy is Kaiku’s 2 bedroom guest cottage beautifully furnished with sleek decor and modern appliances.

Kaiku’s Guest Cottage Amenities

  • Floor to ceiling windows along the kitchen and living areas overlooking the gardens and pool deck
  • Small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, electric range, standard appliances, and breakfast bar
  • Open concept living area with sofas and coffee table, and small dining area with seating for 6

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 Kaiku: a private backyard pool with spa, boat dock access, plus proximity to the Rum point Club. 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 (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.

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.

Perfect Home and Location

We rented Kaiku in August after an exhaustive search for the right property. With kids we wanted a safe, quiet location close enough to activities and restaurants, Kaiku was the perfect choice for our family. Spacious, well-maintained home, comfortable bedding, walks to Rum Point, kaibo, Starfish Point. Kayaking and paddleboarding. We even rented jet skis for a couple days. Thank you Grand Cayman Villas for your help in planning. Everything was perfect. We will cherish our memories of our time at Kaiku forever. We hope to come back soon. Highly recommended for everyone!

Your Own Paradise


         
Review by Annabelle on 07/26/2018

Kaiku was the perfect spot for our group of 10! When we arrived and drove through the gates it was like we were arriving to our own private sanctuary on the island. There is the most beautiful garden that surrounds the house that our little ones loved play hide n\' seek in. We had our own private dock that the kids could paddle board and kayak around and the water was very calm. Everyone was able to have their own room and it was nice to have a nursery for my niece. We absolutely love the house and loved exploring the area. We went out one morning on a snorkel charter with George and it was the best experience of the whole trip! We got to swim with the stingrays. Our favorite restaurants were Tukka and The Lighthouse. Thank you for all of the memories and sharing your beautiful home with us!

My Favorite Vacation

Absolutely loved this house. From the second you arrive, it feels like paradise. I have never been to a foreign country and felt so at home! It was perfect. We really enjoyed the aesthetic of the house and just how beautiful it is. Spent most days sitting by the pool or paddle boarding around the inlet. I highly recommend having someone cook for you during your stay. They chef was incredible and even my picky husband enjoyed the food. I loved drinking my morning coffee and strolling through the garden that surrounds the house. We had the BEST weather while we were there, nothing but sunshine. Decided to leave the kids at home this trip and brought a few friends with us. They did NOT want to leave when we were starting to pack the day of our arrival. This trip was truly special and I will cherish it and this house. We will be back!!

Fantastic Thanksgiving

Really couldn\'t have been happier. Place was spectacular, and the staff was very attentive. It is the rare case where the pictures are actually understated. The house, beach, pool, guesthouse, and grounds are beautiful. We had 3 families, with age ranges of 18 to 55, and everyone enjoyed the facility. And the location proved convenient as well. For example, we rented a catamaran and got picked up at the harbor a few minutes away.

We Loved It

We loved staying at Kaiku! The landscaping is gorgeous! My husband is a photographer and he just had a field day with the gorgeous flowers. Daughter-in-law\'s favorite spot was the nursery. It has a little zen garden right off of it too that she needed in between baby screams!! Pool and beach is stunning. Felt like we had a whole resort to ourselves out there! My favorite was having drinks at sunset after dinner. It\'s a nice and private home. We didn\'t want to leave!! Already planning Kaiku round two 🙂

Great Stay


         
Review by Laken on 08/24/2018

This house is so cute! The layout is very modern and fun. Everyone got their own little section of the house! We got a charter to pick us up right behind the house for a sunset cruise. Other than that, we pretty much spent all our time by the pool. It\'s surrounded by tropical trees and bushes and it makes it very private. We picked up snorkel gear, speakers, and a cooler from Silver Thatch and the process was super easy! We also ventured over to Rum Point Club and had a fun dinner there. For our first trip to Cayman, we had an amazing time! Kaiku is a beautiful villa that was perfect for our friendcation.

Perfect Home


         
Review by The Hendrick\'s on 10/30/2018

We loved our family vacation to Kaiku. The home is spacious and modern. The driveway is pretty special. It\'s covered on each side by tropical landscaping that is extremely well kept. It makes the house stand out gorgeously. I recommend hiring a charter for Stingray City. That was the kids favorite part of the whole trip. The adults in our group used the kayaks and paddle boards almost everyday. This home is the perfect home for a vacation down to Cayman.

Church Vacation!

The house was lovely! We had a great time sharing activities, meals, excursions, and relaxation together. We were very comfortable and the view was great. Truly our own paradise. My husband and I will cherish that time with our family, and hope our family enjoyed it as much as we did. God Bless!

Fabulous Family Vacation!

Our family of 15 which consisted of 11 adults, 2 teenage boys and 2 two year old, has a great time. We were there celebrating the 50 birthday of our daughter. The house was better than expected. The pool and beach was a big hit with everyone. The home is furnished beautiful and it was exactly what we needed. Thank you for making our vacation relaxing and fun.
