Moon Glow is a 2 bedroom oceanfront home in Rum Point along the north coast. With cute, sunny interiors that capitalize on the ocean views, sandy beach, and oceanfront sun deck, Moon Glow is a great beach home for small families. 

Excellent snorkeling awaits you just steps off the sun deck. We advise guests to wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection when out exploring in the water. From off the deck, guests can jump into the shallow water with their snorkel gear on letting the current slowly carry them to the Rum Point Club for a wonderful lunch before walking back along the sandy beach. Many of our repeat guests enjoy Moon Glow's proximity to Rum Point.

Moon Glow sleeps 4 adults max, 8 guests total, across two oceanfront suites each furnished with king beds and full sleeper sofas perfect for two children under 12. The living room has an additional queen sleeper sofa for 2 more children. Both bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking ocean views and come equipped with dresser drawers, flat-screen TVs, and small deposit safes. Both bedrooms are individually climate-controlled ensuring nighttime comfort after a long day in the sun.

A modern kitchen comes equipped with standard appliances and stocked with dishware, utensils, cookware, and cutlery.  Guests can dine indoors with seating for 6 just off the kitchen, or grill outdoors on the patio and enjoy al-fresco dining with seating for 4.

Discount rates are available for small groups and last-minute vacations.


^Reduced rates offered to small groups not requiring all bedrooms. See Rates tab for pricing.

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 homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can 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 foot protection (pool shoes or fins). The prevailing breeze (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 and bar, gift shops, and pick-up beach volleyball games. It is from the Rum Point pier that Red Sail Cayman's 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina

Lastly, about 20 minutes east we have two large resorts (Morritt's The Reef) that offer manicured beaches plus restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and cafe/pastry shop.

These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. Tortuga Divers and White Sand Water Sports offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.

Cute Home and Location

We loved the view - AMAZING! The furniture is very nice and updated. We enjoyed the huge deck with awesome outdoor furniture. Both bedrooms had their own AC unit plus the main part of the house had air - all rooms had ceiling fans! It is a great quiet place with a nice little beach in front of the villa. Snorkeling was amazing, right outside the villa - (Do buy swim shoes there are rocks when you get it.) We walked to rum point for drinks and dinner. Every morning we walked to Kaibo for coffee. The unit is a little dated but nothing that hindered our stay or that I would not say to someone don\'t stay there. We understand it is a beach property and gets the wear and tear. WE truly enjoyed everything about this vacation and this Villa and would stay again - Location to RUM POINT is perfect! You can swim / walk or drive there! BOOK this villa now!

Most beautiful home!!

Moon glow is just as beautiful as it appeared in pictures. It was beautifully lighted, spacious, and perfect for our family. It was a very short walk to Rum Point, and we appreciated the complimentary snorkel equipment rental. The snorkeling right out from Moon Glow is absolutely wonderful.

This is a great villa! The view is amazing Snorkeling right off the beach is the best...(highly recommend swim shoes there are rocks before you get out into the water) The management is very informative and great to work with. Villa furnishings are very nice and comfortable Kitchen and bathrooms are dated but not an issue. Highly recommend this villa FYI it’s on the remote part of the island which was perfect for our family and exactly what we wanted!!! 5 minute walk to RUM Point - perfect!

Clean, Bright and Comfortable

My family and I stayed at Moon Glow for a week in June and could not have better things to say about the property. The house was clean and had all of the amenities we needed. The location was perfect - away from the crowds and on a quiet part of the island. The large sun deck was perfect for relaxing! The snorkeling off the house was amazing - we saw the same amount of marine life that we saw on our multiple dives. We snorkled to Rum Point and had a short, beautiful walk back to the house. Thank you for the wonderful accommodations!!

Perfect Vacation!

We loved Moon Glow! Perfect villa for our family of four. Best snorkeling on the island right off the house!

Lovely, relaxing home for vacation

This property was lovely. The views are fabulous, it was clean, and the area was so quiet! The snorkeling right in front of the house was great, the kayak was fun and it was nice to be such a short walk to Rum Point. We did need to contact the Property Manager for an issue with the safe and they responded promptly. Used Red Sail Sports out of Rum Point for a sail - they were fabulous, highly recommend!!

Great Escape

Moon Glow for a Month


         
Review by Scott on 01/05/2019

Tremendous panoramic view of the Caribbean from the expansive patio, living room and each bedroom. Enjoyed the new furniture in the living room and on the patio. TV is strangely placed to the furniture but we weren\'t there to watch. Cellophane wrappers left on the lampshades were rather odd. Interior windows between the living room and the bedrooms are impractical and shades should be installed for each. Blinds and shades throughout the house could use adjusting and having some slats replaced. Kitchen is adequate. We would have liked a disposal in the sink. Also, the plastic glassware (that\'s all that is stocked) is all cloudy and needs replacing. Both en-suite bathrooms are ridiculously tiny and very dated. Pillows on the beds were all worn and uncomfortable. But, linens were all to our satisfaction. We liked having 2 safes for valuables. During our month, a security alarm system was added which my wife appreciated during the time I was away. Crime has apparently found its way to Cayman over the last 10 years. For close to a week the wind and current changed and sargassum seaweed began to pile up on the beach and rock. After a few days, the winds changed as a storm front passed over and seaweed vanished quickly. Sadly, being on the windward side of the island, what was a constant was the plastic washing ashore everyday: bottles, flip-flops, etc. I was told much of it originates from cruise ships. Very disheartening. The Silver Thatch Center was a nice touch although the service from the on-site rep was a bit unsteady. We used the fitness center several times each week and liked being able to borrow snorkel gear, ice chest and Bluetooth speaker. Property manager was responsive, helpful and very friendly. We enjoyed Kaibo Coffee, Rum Point Restaurant, Over the Edge, and The Lighthouse. Kaibo Beach Bar was hit or miss. Kaibo Upstairs is overpriced and disappointing. In summary, for Moon Glow it\'s all about the view and location.

We LOVED Moon Glow!

The house had the most beautiful view and the patio with patio furniture was awesome. The only regret was the seaweed that had been brought in with the storms right before our arrival. Everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed going to Rum Point to enjoy our favorite fish and chips and terrific drinks. We rented a car and explored most of the island. Our favorite thing to do was see the stingrays and starfish and found the most amazing places to snorkel. We definitely will be back in the future!
Manager Response:

Thank you for your kind review! We would love to have you back to Moon Glow!!!!

Moon Glow is the perfect remote getaway with fabulous views, private beach, and ocean swimming

We absolutely enjoyed our 4 night stay at Moon Glow. The property was well equipped and extremely clean. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were well stocked with supplies and needed amenities. The entire home, indoor and outdoor, was sparkling clean and ready for enjoyment. The sundeck was amazing and the outdoor furniture was perfect to tan and lounge on. A super short walk to Rum Point Bar and Restaurant beach side or roadside. Stay on Sunday and there is a large boat gathering at Rum Point with lots of fun, food, drinks and music. A MUST STAY IN THE CAYMANS!

Great location and view if want quieter side of island. Our family loved it.


         
Review by CM on 04/01/2018

The view from the deck, private beach, and access to great snorkeling was the best part. We wanted to be near Rum Point and Kaibo, our favorite spot on the island. Way more quiet than SMB, if that is what you want. After a few days, will run out of restaurants close by, but there are other interesting places to explore by driving. The kayak at the house was fun and easy to navigate. Did lots of snorkeling in the coral gardens in front of the house. Getting in water is a little rocky. The House was clean and adequate for what we wanted. A little dated, but worked just fine. For the minor maintenance issue we had, help was on its way promptly. We would stay here again.

Quiet Oceanside Relaxation!

Moon Glow was perfect for our Cayman Islands getaway. Great deck overlooking the ocean. Deck furniture was very nice. Clean and well appointed home. Loved the carport. Great to leave the Jeep in with the top down all the time. Stingray City is a must do.

Great Family Vacation

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moon Glow. The house is EXACTLY as shown in the pictures. It was perfectly clean and everything we needed. The patio area is the best feature of the house and a great place to watch the sun rise, look out at the ocean, sun tan, or drink coconut rum and pineapple juice. The washer and dryer, WiFi, and kayak are wonderful features. Moon Glow is walking distance to Rum Point Beach. I highly recommend staying at Rum Point rather than dealing with the cruise ship and tourist mobs at 7-mile Beach.

Moon Glow views are breathtaking

My husband and I just returned from spending 6 days at Moon Glow. If you are looking for a private, quiet vacation away from it all, this is the place. The house is very clean and very simply decorated. Nothing fancy but provided everything we needed. The views were breathtaking especially the sunrises. There were strong winds while we were there so the beaches were covered in seaweed but also with shells. Moon Glow is only a 1 minute drive (short walk) to Rum Point, if you want some activity. We ate at the beach grill and restaurant while there. We also went on a sunset sail out of Rum Point which was very nice. Starfish Point was also a fun time and only 5 minutes away. Make sure you stop for groceries and liquor on your way from airport. I\'ve never experienced such peacefulness on a vacation. Grand Cayman has become my favorite Caribbean location and the Northside is my kind of place (a little Bob Marley music here). Moon Glow was exactly what we were looking for and I have to say it one more time - the views are breathtaking.

No complaints!

Five stars for: beautiful beach and ocean views from all rooms, quiet location with easy walking access to Rum Point and Kaibo, excellent snorkeling right off the beach, kayak included, well equipped kitchen, king sized bed in master, sufficient wifi for adult family of 4, barbecue grill, friendly and helpful staff from booking to on island, our children (21 and 18) were never bored and we would return again. The furniture is showing some wear and the bathrooms could be upgraded, but we were outside all day every day so it didn\'t matter to us at all. No pool, but again, no problem because we were in the ocean all day. Stingray city tours close at rum point and kaibo, several restaurants within 10-20 min drive.

Better than I imagined!

The VIEWS!!!! Lots of windows, the location is perfect, the beds were comfortable, the place was immaculate, the snorkeling, the air conditioning, the washer and dryer, parking, and everything we needed. Everything was perfect! Grand Cayman villas was extremely responsive and helpful with all our questions and needs.

AMAZING!

When we first arrived, we walked in and our jaws dropped. You instantly see the ocean views that are just breath taking. The villa was extremely clean and had a nice fresh smell as we walked into the kitchen. Everything you need is there for you. The beds were very comfortable, a big plus for us. The patio is equipped with a grill for cooking. You want to make sure you stop by the grocery store before driving to Rum Point. Food is very expensive there due to the US currency exchange. We also had the pleasure of meeting the store owner at Christholms market which was a 4 mile drive from the villa. He was great. If you need any pick up foods during your stay, shop there. If you choose to eat out instead of cooking, there are many good places to eat. We had Sunday brunch at \"The Lighthouse\" and one night ordered a pizza from there. The food was great! We did find out that no one will deliver food on that end of town. The Rum Point resort is just a walk down the road. We found it to be less crowded than the 7 mile beach. The island is just beautiful, and I can\'t express enough how great all of the staff members from Grand Cayman Villas and condos were. Very accommodating. Thanks Sherman and Ray for all you good advice, help and service. Thanks Jim for getting all of our stay paperwork in order before arrival. We so appreciated it. This company has many beautiful rentals. Rent one, you won\'t regret it!

Great location and fabulous ocean views!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Moon Glow is within walking and/or snorkeling distance to Rum Point and is a very comfortable home. Snorkeling is the best way to get to Rum Point, we saw sting rays, squid, and many colorful fish, to include lion fish but the real treat was following the baby sea turtle. Not too close, just watching the turtle glide through the water was mesmerizing. Sitting on the deck and listening to the sounds of the ocean was a great way to spend our evening. We hired, Rosie Parris, (a local cook) to prepare dinner one evening and she did an amazing job; using fresh local fish, fruits and vegetables. The Rum Point Club and the Kaibo Beach Bar and Grill are both good for lunch or dinner and within 2 miles of Moon Glow. If you dive, Ocean Frontiers is on the East End and they do a great job. We also used Deep Blue Divers over in George Town for calmer water and for our less experienced divers. We used Deep Blue when we went to the Kittiwake, they were incredibly knowledgable and we enjoyed diving the wreck; saw a spotted eagle ray gliding through the water. If you have a party of 5-6, check out absolute Divers; they do private charters at a reasonable price and we enjoyed diving 2 trips with them and they picked us up right at Kaibo. Bombay Chopsticks is a fabulous restaurant in the East End, you will need a reservation. We had a fabulous vacation and would return to Moon Glow again for a party of 4. Btw, if you have a larger party, check out Kai Vista, we stayed there a few years ago and it is a great property about 5 houses from Moon Glow. Has a private pool, hot tub and same fabulous views!

million dollar view!!

My husband and I have been to Grand Cayman many times. We love it. Our favorite part of the island is Rum Point. We have stayed in condos, as well as other private home rentals. While Moon Glow might not have been as "up to date" as some of the other places we have stayed, we throughly enjoyed our trip. You can't beat the location. We could walk to Rum point, my husband even snorkled there from the house! We went with another couple and had plenty of room in the house. Like I said, the house was good just a bit out of date, for instance the laundry facility was outside in the detatched carport. Also no electrical outlets in the bathrooms. All in all we still really enjoyed our trip, but then again who doesn't love Grand Cayman!!
