Cayman Kai
8 Guests
2 Bedrooms
2.5 Bathrooms

The Kai Life is a recently-renovated Caribbean-style "Island House" and sits directly between the protected quiet beach and Cayman Kai Cove and the beautiful barefoot white sand beach and amenities of the famous Rum Point Club. Location, location, location.

Walk across the street to restaurants, beach bar, watersports, shopping boutique and a wonderful white-sand barefoot swimming beach. The Island Houses are a resort neighborhood of 18 units at the top of the cove, each with their own 2-story screened lanai. They share a dock and large swimming pool with sundeck. This is resort living, but with fewer footprints and more privacy.

The Kai Life is spacious and airy with elegant comfortable furnishings. Balconies from each second-floor bedroom open to the screened lanai to allow the house to be opened up during the cooler winter months. Screened casement windows on the front also allow a breeze to flow through the house when air-conditioning is not needed.

The ground floor is an open floorplan and includes a living & dining area, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a guest 1/2 bath, reading nook with sleeper sofa, separate utility room, with full size washer/ dryer, as well as the spacious screened lanai facing the water with additional seating and outside dining. Our guests tend to spend many hours outside in the lanai. Private charcoal grill & outdoor shower behind lanai.

Other amenities included with this villa are, High speed Wi-Fi connection, a 55 inch flat panel Smart HDTV with premium movie channels, hotel-grade linens & towels and plenty of beach towels.

Access to amazing natural surroundings is at your back door overlooking the popular Bioluminescent Bay. This enchanting natural wonder comes alive at night with sparkling aquatic life that can be enjoyed while kayaking at night, or you can hire one of the local tour companies/guides for their narrated and informative tour.

Our guests also easily walk to the Kaibo Marina and restaurants for additional watersports, dining options, coffee shop and to catch the Cayman Ferry over to Camana Bay and 7 Mile Beach.

Beach Notes

The Island Houses enjoy a smooth sandy beach with no rocks. These 9 clusters of 2 villas are staggered along the water's edge at the top of the Cayman Kai Cove...with quiet shallow water, a shared freshwater pool and dock for our guests to use for kayaking or for private charter collection. The water here is shallow with a soft bottom and not really suitable for snorkeling or swimming when the best water is directly across the street at the famous Rum Point Club (open to the public).

The surrounding area offers a wide variety of activities with the Rum Point Beach Club located within 200 yards. Rum Point offers a spectacular white sandy beach with vibrant snorkeling, plus shady hammock spots, watersports, two restaurants and a beach bar. Chaises are plentiful and first-come, first-served.

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. 

It's from the Rum Point pier that the 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. Just a great neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas.

Hop on the Cayman ferry at the Kaibo Marina, and sail across the North Sound to Camana Bay for a day trip of shopping, dining, and much, much more. There's also easy access from Camana Bay to Seven Mile Beach and all the restaurants, bars and activities in the area.

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.

Vacation Rental Reviews by

Fabulous stay


         
Review by Brett on 01/19/2020

We had two couples stay at the Kai Life #7 on Rum Point and it could not have been more perfect. Literally right across the street from Rum Point, the beach and bars/restaurants. Bonus that we had our own beach in the bio bay and a private pool as well. Property was very well maintained and perfect for the 4 of us. Silver Thatch Guest Services was top-notch upon arrival, departure and any inquiries in between. Great information and extremely helpful. Same for Grand Cayman Villas. Every entity involved was great! We love being away from the crowded and congested 7-mile beach area. The kayak was a great bonus to be able to take the bay to Starfish Point or Kaibo for a meal or cocktail. A perfect vacation!

Our family of 4 loved our stay. Great location, near Rum Point. The kids could walk back and forth safely. Loved the food there. The beach BBQ was a special treat. The home is beautiful inside and the furniture and bedding comfy. We recommend The Kai Life and will return another time!

Sunshine and Sand!

Cute home. Clean and crisp. Well taken care of. Location close to Rum Point and Kaibo. Starfish Point just down the road. We walked there twice. Sandy beach and we met some nice families by the pool. Recommend renting a car and driving around the island! Thank you Grand Cayman Villas for helping us pick the right property for our group! Highly recommend.

Thanksgiving in Cayman

We celebrated our Thanksgining Holiday in Grand Cayman. We considered 5-6 different properties and settled on The Kai Life due to interior quality of the home and location. We could not have been happier with our choice. Guest Services staff was a bonus as was the complimentary snorkel gear, cooler and bluetooth speaker. Great part of the island. Quiet, but plenty of activities!!!
