Welcome to Kailypso, a 3-bedroom beachfront villa in Cayman Kai located on Bio Bay. Measuring over 2,800 square feet with spectacular outdoor spaces, cozy interiors, and a secluded beach, this popular villa is the perfect destination for family vacations and group getaways.

Nestled among tall palm trees and lush tropical plants, Kailypso’s waterfront pool and patio create a tropical oasis. Plenty of loungers dot the pool deck for sunbathers to kick back and work on their tans. After hours under the sun, cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool or seek shade in the screened-in porch. A wooden pathway leads you down from the pool deck on to a soft sandy beach with private boat dock. 

Beach lovers will love this wide slice of paradise with chairs, loungers, tiki torches, and hammocks set up on the beach. Take full advantage of the private dock by booking a charter to Sting Ray City and request to be picked up right off your dock—it’s the ultimate charter experience! 

Two single kayaks are provided during your stay. During the day, launch from the dock and explore the calm surrounding waters of Cayman Kai. Then, on moonless nights, take the kayaks out and watch the water glow with light as you paddle. Bio Bay is one of the few bioluminescent bays in the world making it an unforgettable experience.

Kailypso’s interiors feature an open concept great room with living and dining areas furnished in light tropical decor. The formal dining table seats 6 and is adjacent to the kitchen with ocean views. A galley kitchen comes equipped with modern appliances including a microwave and dishwasher, plus cookware, dishes, glassware, and cutlery. 

A full-width screened-in porch sits off the great room leading out to the pool deck. The porch is furnished with comfortable seating areas and a patio dining table (seats 8). A propane grill and outdoor dining table (seats 6) sits on the pool deck and is perfect for island cookouts under the stars.

Kailypso’s three bedrooms include a master suite with private bathroom and two additional bedrooms with a shared bath. The villa sleeps 6 adults max, 8 guests in total.

Kailypso’s Bedroom Layout

  • Master Suite - Furnished with a king bed, ensuite bath with double vanity and shower, plus flat screen TV, ocean views, and private access to the sunroom.
  • Guest Bedroom #1 - Ocean views, private access to the sunroom, shared bathroom, and furnished with a queen bed and flat screen TV.
  • Guest Bedroom #2 - Garden views, shared bathroom, and furnished with a queen bed and set of bunk beds for kids. 

Finally, Kailypso’s location puts it at the center of all the best that Cayman Kai has to offer minus the crowds. Guests can walk to Rum Point to find a heavenly barefoot beach plus watersports activities, a beach bar and grill, a souvenir shop, and a fine-dining restaurant.

The Kaibo is another popular beachfront club also within walking distance featuring live music, food, and drinks, plus limbo on the beach—how low can you go? Ferry service to Camana Bay in Seven Mile Beach departs from the Kaibo Marina and Rum Point regularly making it perfect for day trips.

With a great location and fabulous outdoor amenities, it's easy to see why guests love Kailypso!

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, private charter pick-up if the villa has a dock or just safe shallow water along the edge swimming for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove—Rum Point is too nice by comparison—the water is shallow and has a softer bottom and there is no reef here for fish life...but we do see the occasional turtle, eagle ray or tarpon swim by in the shallows! Another benefit is that we rarely get any seaweed in the cove so the beaches stay cleaner than the oceanfront beaches.

The beaches are flat white barefoot sand. The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club within a short walk that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many water sports, a restaurant and bar, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games.  Also nearby is the Kaibo, a beachfront restaurant, bar, and marina.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east there are 2 large resorts--Morritt's and The Reef--that offer manicured beaches, plus restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, the Italian Kitchen Restaurant. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet ski rentals, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront 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.

Best Vacation!


         
Review by Susanne on 11/10/2018

We have had the best vacation! We are all wishing we could stay longer! We loved the house and being near Rum Point and Kaibo is the perfect location. We rented a car and drove all over the island, we even went to Seven Mile beach for the day and it made us realize we love being in Cayman Kai! The house is so nice with the pool and being right on the Bio Bay, it was perfect for us. We can\'t wait to come back!

Great House, Great Location for Young Families

We were 4 Adults and 3 kids and found Kailypso very comfortable. The pool was great and even better were the kayaks. We paddled around the bay day and night and very much enjoyed the bioluminescence! We enjoyed kayaking out to the beach at the bay entrance and snorkling. Starfish Point is a 5 min drive and was another highlight of our trip. Rum Point was even closer and we took advantage of the restaurant and the Red Sail watersports. The kitchen was fully loaded with all the cookware we needed and we just had to supply the charcoal for the bbq grill. We would definitely recommend this to other families looking for a peaceful vacation!

Perfect Vacation

Thanks for the use of your beautiful home, It was perfect for our vacation and checked off all the boxes. We appreciated the location as well as the amenities and made use of them daily. We had an small issue with a ceiling fan but it was addressed quite quickly and resolved easily thanks to Judy\'s help. We would highly recommend this home and would go back again in a heartbeat!

Thank you for sharing your home with our family over New Years. We enjoyed the home and look forward to returning soon. Rum Point and Kaibo were wonderful day and night.

Kailypso was a wonderful choice. We had 4 adults and two small children. The area is safe, perfect for small children. Walk to Rum Point. No traffic. The bedrooms were nice and comfy. The kitchen was well stocked. Lots of space for everyone. We highly recommend Kailypso and hope to return next year!

Perfect Spot

We can not say enough positives about Kailypso. Would give the home a 6 star if that was an option! Great location and views. Safe. No seaweed! The Bio Bay is stunning at night time! Rum Point was a favorite daytime spot, as well as lunch!

Fantastic Memories

Great memories from our time at Kailypso. We will be returning here. Great location, home, walks to Rum Point and Kaibo. Starfish Point is a must. Bio Bay. Snorkel charter to Stingray City is a must and they will pick you up at Kailypso - ask for Joe at Silver Thatch Watersports.

Pictures do no justice to this home. Relax with a great view, fresh breeze, great safe walking area. We have already booked for next year!

Something Special at Kailypso


         
Review by Roger and Pat on 04/07/2019
5 out of 5
Every aspect of Kailypso was special for our family. Third time on island - first time at Kailypso. The other homes we stayed in were very nice, but Kailypso was a notch above and our favorite. The kids loved the deck and pool, kayaking and paddle boards. We rented jet skiis for one day as well. The home is clean and up to date. Nice bedrooms, Comfortable beds. Plenty of room to spread out. We will be back.

Beauty! Beauty! Beauty!
