We stayed in Moon Kai for a whole week around Thanksgiving with the whole family, all 13 of us. The house is big, well furnished, enough bedrooms with bathrooms. Master suite was indeed a Master Suite. Pool awesome for the grandkids. The beach and ocean were literally steps away and ready for kayaking, swimming and walking. Very quiet neighborhood away the crazy 7 mile beach area with the cruise ships and too many tourists. So if you like beautiful, quiet and spacious, you got it here in Moon Kai! We loved it. We highly recommend to hire Linda as a cook. She did awesome job and being home again, we miss the treat of having someone to make meals and do the shopping!
Thank you for your kind words.
Your words catch the essence of Moon Kai!
Please come back soon!

Wow is all you\'ll think when you see this house in person. It\'ll take your breath away! Our whole large family loved it which is hard to make happen on any trip! The grandparents loved the privacy of the guesthouse. The kids had their own area upstairs and everyone would come together in the pretty open living room and patio. Make sure you book a charter with George!! Best day we had was out on the snorkel charter. We couldn\'t have asked for a better trip or a better place to stay.
Best Family Beach Vacay Ever!!
Review by Rachel S.
We were traveling with our entire family and couldn't have picked a better beach house for our summer trip. The home was big enough for all of us to spread out from the bedrooms to the living room, porch, and of course the pool. We stopped along the way to stock up on groceries as we tend to eat in when traveling with the family. We grilled out as much as we could and ate out on the pool deck or porch taking in those amazing views!! If I lived here I would never get tired of those sunsets. We booked a charter to Stingray City and stopped off at Starfish Point coming back. I would love to come back but maybe next time it'll just be me and my husband lol!

You can\'t go wrong with this house. The pool area is so gorgeous you\'ll almost never find yourself inside which is a shame because the house is just as beautiful. Each bedroom feels nicer than a hotel! Seriously the comfiest I\'ve ever been on vacation. Those pillows are something else! Can almost guarantee you\'ll enjoy this home.
Review by Dave
I really wish that we didn\'t have to leave Moon Kai. It was the perfect house. They have a ramp that you can use to roll your luggage to the front door instead of carrying it up all the stairs. They even have an elevator to take the luggage to the second floor for you! The house was incredible, even the guest house. We loved the automatic shades and the view of the ocean from the living room. We would come back every month if we could. What an amazing experience that we will never forget. We even decided to take a boat charter with Silver Thatch and George was one helluva captain. Can\'t express our gratitude enough.
Rent Every Year - Cayman is BEST!
Review by Amy
My family and I have rented a house for a week, every year for the past 8+ years. (Most recently Dominican, Turks and Caicos, Cozumel, Hawaii, etc) Your property is one of the most immaculate, thoughtfully laid out, well-equipped and maintained, places in which we have stayed. The ocean view was beautiful! The screened-in porches allowed us to enjoy the sunset and dining al fresco without concerns of mosquitoes or other bugs. The dining table was large enough to comfortably fit all 12 of us. The common room A/C allowed us more time together instead of retreating to our rooms mid day to cool off. And the management company, was pleasant, responsive and professional. We went scuba diving, snorkeling, boat to stingray city and many of these outings were conveniently located at Rum Point, a walk or one minute drive away. We visited Spotts Beach and saw 6 sea turtles. A truly wonderful vacation with something for everyone!
You\'ll Love This Home!
Review by Trisha
5 stars doesn\'t seem like enough for this house. It is so amazingly beautiful! I seriously was trying to find labels for pillows and throws so I could go buy them for my own house! The pool is so stunning you\'ll have to remind yourself that the whole ocean is right there! We walked to starfish point one day which was really fun. You have to eat at the Kaibo! We had great service and food! It is perfect because you can get on your snorkel charter there so we just ate at the Kaibo after! You\'ll love this home!!
Amazing Sunsets & Views
Review by Tracy M.
From the moment we pulled up into the driveway, I fell in love with this house. The landscaping is lush and beautiful with the pergola porch swings making it feel as if I was in a secret tropical garden. The interior of the home is incredible. The decor is very contemporary and the views are just WOW!! You can tell the homeowner takes great care of the home as all the rooms were clean and tidy with quality sheets, linens, and pillows. I don\'t think we ever left the house outside of our charter to Stingray City--we had everything we could want at home! Fabulous pool and deck area, screened in porch for sunset viewings, and bedroom balconies for extra lounging space. The neighborhood is very quite and the convenience of being close to Rum Point sold us on this house. We can\'t wait to return in 2019!!
Comfortable, roomy home!
Review by R.H.
This is the perfect house if you are looking to be on the \\\"quieter\\\" side of the island! We enjoyed being able to walk down to Rum Point for quick access to water sports and to get some drinks and a tasty lunch! All thoroughly enjoyed having a private pool, and the kids really enjoyed the kayaks. This property works well for multiple families, because all bedrooms are private with their own bathroom. The only issue we experienced during our stay was the main master suite air conditioner failed. The property manager was VERY responsive and the unit was completely replaced the next day. So, any previous reviews you read about that issue ... should be resolved! We will return to the beautiful island of Grand Cayman!
Review by The Simon Family
We have older kids and this home was perfect for us. Everyone got their own bedroom and bathroom with their own little screened patios. The living area was perfect for all of us to come together but we each still had our own space. Loved the pool deck! It was truly so pretty watching the sunsets every night! We all have so many memories from this home that we\'ll cherish forever. Already planning a girl\'s trip here next year!!
Review by Trevor
Spent a week here but I could\'ve spent YEARS here!! The home is so nice just the decor will relax you. Add in a large pool and huge beach and you\'ll forget how to feel stressed out! Our friends couldn\'t stop raving about our choice in where to stay in Cayman. We all spent nights in the screened patio watching the sun go down (also the best place for a nightcap). Enjoy your time here cause it will go by so fast.
Review by Carol D.
This was our first time to Grand Cayman and our first vacation rental. I admit I was nervous about the whole experience but it couldn\'t have been more perfect! We had the home stocked with groceries, beer and wine prior to our arrival and it made a world of difference. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and had the feel of a posh five star hotel. We used the elevator to lift our luggage to the upper bedrooms which was a truly nice touch. After 5 hours on a plane none of us wanted to haul our bags up the stairs. We spent most of our vacation out by the pool and would stroll over to Rum Point for lunch. We also walked to the Kaibo a few times which was not too far away. The neighborhood is full of beautiful homes with waterviews making our morning walks so scenic. We took the ferry service from the Kaibo to Camana Bay for a day trip to Seven Mile Beach returning just before sunset. We had amazing views coming back as the sun was setting off to the west. All in all we had a great experience and will look to book vacation rentals again over hotels.
Review by Jackson Family
I can\'t imagine staying anywhere else in Grand Cayman. We\'ve been coming to this house for years and have no intention of stopping! This stunning home is beautifully decorated. It\'ll become your home away from home fast just like it did for us. You can\'t go wrong with Moon Kai.
Review by Cindy
The picture do not do this house justice! The second you walk in you will be blown away I guarantee it! You can tell the owners take amazing care of this home. It is simply gorgeous. We had this huge beach all to ourselves! It was a great vacation. This house will have you wanting to redecorate your own home!!
We Loved Our Stay
Review by Penny
We loved our stay at Moon Kai. Right when you lug all your stuff in you\'re tired and just want to leave it in the living room and take it up to your room later BUT then you realize the house has an elevator! Yeah you read that right an elevator!! It was awesome. We sent up all of our luggage and it made our lives so much easier! The home is gorgeous inside and out. I felt like I was in an HGTV house!
50th Birthday celebration-awesome
Review by Jan M
We just returned from Moon Kai and the photos don't do this villa justice. There were two couples and three single folks, the rooms are situated so they are very private and each one has a great ocean view. There was plenty of room and all the amenities are top notch. The week we spent there it felt like our own private beach. Walking up to Rum Pointe to have lunch and mudslides was so relaxing. We also booked our snorkel and sting ray excursion through Red Sail Sports in Rum Pointe. Another amazing outing. I'm glad we decided to stay where things were within walking distance, yet very private.
The BBQ dinner at Kaibo Beach club was delicious and the band that plays on Tuesday nights was rockin...Great fun.
We contacted Rosie Paris,who was recommended by Grand CAyman VIllas and Condos and she came in and cooked for us on two seperate occassions. The food was delicious and they couldn't have been any nicer. I would highly recommend hiring Rosie and her team.
I would recommend a car, it gave us the freedom to hit the grocery store when we needed. Its hard to buy all you need for a week at the beginning of your trip.
The recommendations found on Grand Cayman Villas website and on their mobile app are incredibly helpful. Download the app, it came in very handy.
Beautiful Home on Beautiful Beach
Review by aledo99
I would love to give this home a 5-Star rating. This is the most difficult review that I have ever written.
Our experience with Jim & Grace with Grand Cayman Villas was fantastic! The concierge, Jenny, with Beach House Butlers was amazing! Our catering by Mise en Place was over-the-top delicious! Charter with Red Sail was perfect.
The location is just perfect! We walked to Rum Point for lunches. Cooked our own breakfast.
But the new home needs some work on the a/C. Four out of five bedrooms were stuffy and warm for the entire trip. One night, after the repair people finally came and cleaned out the filters it was better. Although, the next night the bedrooms were hot again. The a/C in all bedrooms is set at 74 degrees, except the Master, which stays cool. The four other bedrooms were between 76-84 degrees at 10PM each evening. By morning they were down to 74.
We did not complain the first day because the draperies had been open to the beautiful west view when we arrived, so we were under the impression that the sun had warmed the rooms. But we kept the draperies closed the entire trip and were uncomfortable every night. The property manager was very hard to reach, although the Jim from Grand Cayman Villas was very easy to reach. And the actual owner of the home even called.
I hope they will get this resolved! Please lease this home during the cooler months if possible. It is amazing!
We loved the spot on the beach, and the beautiful pool! It is wonderful home! Each of the five bedrooms has a view of the ocean and a private patio, along with a twin bed fold out sofa. There is a loft with four twin beds with a flat screen TV. We had a family of 15 and did not use all of the beds (10 adults and 5 toddlers).
The large kitchen and open plan provided a perfect setting for gatherings of family or friends!
It is a wonderful place. We had a beautifully served meal on the patio with live music the last night with a the sun setting directly in the water. Amazing!!
THANKS for the review. You hit the nail on the head; the house and experience was great; but the (New) A/C system was fussy (twitchy thermostats we found out)and needed maintenance. The owner scrambled the manufacturer rep and builder and they were able to keep it at 74 degrees with low humidity. These guests wanted it colder; so there are some limits that are being reached. These guests were very pleasant and enjoyed the house otherwise; but that was an issue that we are addressing.
The Best Villa in Cayman Kai/Rum Point
Review by Thad
Wow. Perfection on vacation. Probably the best location on the entire island if you are a large group of friends or family. This villa is brand new and perfectly laid out. All 5 bedrooms in the main house have Northsound views, king beds and showers for two! They are positioned so they have no common walls making each room very private. The kitchen is well equipped allowing us to prepare most of our own meals and save a huge amount of money! The best part of the beach is right out the door, just past the infinity pool. We also had the carriage house. It has a living room, dining area, kitchen,and a huge master bathroom. There were 10 adults, 4 children, and 2 infants in our group. We had more than enough room and privacy. We walked to rum point club every day, in our bare feet, and snorkeled right out in front of the villa every day. We saw the entire island on our 8 day stay, but by far our favorite place to be was poolside at Moon Kai. One day we rented a boat and enjoyed being out on the North Sound and visiting stingray sandbar. We could bring the boat right up to the beach to drop people off and get more on. It would have been nice to have a couple of kayaks available for us but they can be rented just down the beach. Working with Jim and Grace at grandcaymanvillas.net was a breeze and I highly recommend them. Your attention and flexibility with the back and forth with my group was very appreciated. Jim, the pictures you have on the website don't do this place justice. Maybe you could provide a link just for more pictures!? Thank you all so much for a perfect vacation!!!
