Twin Palms Villa is directly oceanfront in the Rum Point district and enjoys a sandy beach and protective coral reef with excellent snorkeling.  No neighbors on either side ensure guest privacy.  New contemporary 18' x 54' pool and infinity hot tub was built this summer. Pool table and shuffleboard table added in December.

This deceptively large 6,500 sq ft single story contemporary home was built specifically for entertaining larger families.  Twin Palms offers stunning glass-wall views and has a great open concept feel.

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 makes flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch. 

Twin Palms offers a very sandy backyard and beach and there are areas in the water that offer some barefoot beach entry—we still recommend water shoes. Excellent snorkeling as well.

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. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina

Lastly, we have 2 large resorts in the east end (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.

Our family visited Twin Palms for the first time and we’ll definitely be back! The home was incredible and fit all 9 of us comfortably. We felt like we all had plenty of space to spread out when needed. We spent a ton of time enjoying the pool and hot tub which was perfect for our little kids (two 15 month olds and a 3 year old) as they had the wading pool areas on both ends. The beach was beautiful (the only drawback being seaweed in the water) and the area quiet though not far from the shops and restaurants at rum point. We also easily drove to attractions and found the location perfect. The guest services were very helpful with equipment and information. The home was well appointed with all the necessities and the view was incredible. We couldn’t have been happier!

Fantastic Home and Views

Two families on a return trip to Grand Cayman. We chose Twin Palms from several options we considered after asking too many questions! Haha. We were delighted with our choice and thank Grand Cayman Villas for their patience and expertise. The home is quite large with 7 really nice bedrooms. All beds very comfortable. The game room and theater room were added bonuses. We enjoyed the new pool and hot tub as well as the beach. Kids snorkeled and kayaked every day. We also spent time at Rum Point and Starfish Point (again pointers from the management). We loved our stay and have already rebooked for 2019!

Summer in Cayman!

We spent a wonderful week on the island in August at Twin Palms. There was a good bit of seaweed around the island, but thankfully not bad at all at Twin Palms. Management was very good about keeping us in the loop on the cause and effect of the \"sargassum seaweed\". That said, we fully enjoyed everything about the home. The 7th bedroom apartment was fantastic for the grand parents. Private, but still an integral part of everything! Kids watched movies at night and were outside during days. The local restaurants were all wonderful. Tukka was a family favorite - get there at 5pm when they feed the frigate birds, tarpon and a small lemon shark!!! Visit Davidoffs Concrete Sculpture Garden!!!

Best Vacation We\'ve Ever Had!!

We LOVED our stay at Twin Palms!! After staying at tons of places around the Cayman Islands, this was our favorite! We used the kayaks and snorkel gear a lot! You\'ll definitely want to stop by Silver Thatch to get all kinds of free checkout items. We also got two coolers from there! The kids loved the foosball table! Half the time we couldn\'t get them out of the house!! Best vacation we\'ve ever had!

Fourth Time to Grand Cayman

This was our fourth time visiting Grand Cayman. We have always stayed in the Rum Point area. This is our favorite home so far and we will repeat here!!! Friendly island, great home and location, private, wonderful guest services and management.

Best Decision Ever

We take an annual trip with another couple ever year to a local beach, but this year we thought we would go big and head to Cayman! It was the best decision ever! Plenty of room for both families. Nice soft beach! We loved the privacy we had too! It was perfect because we were still close to the Rum Point Club and Kaibo for dinners. Twin Palms gives you the best of both worlds!

Special Home for Our Family Memories

We visit a tropical island every other year and we chose Grand Cayman this time. Cant believe this was our first time. Small, quaint island. Friendly people everywhere. Family with younger kids, teens and parents. Plenty of room for a large family. The pool table and shuffleboard were amazing! The furniture is seriously comfortable!! Bedrooms are large. Bathrooms are top of the line. But the glass wall facing the ocean is what makes this hoe so special!!! Highly recommended to any groups of 8-14 people!!!

Loved Loved Loved It!

We came to the Caymans over our kids spring break and they didn\'t want to leave! Twin Palms was our little heaven on earth. The decor is gorgeous and the pool and beach area is even better!! We rented a car and went all around the island. We all agreed that The Lighthouse\'s lasagna is the best we\'ve ever had! Loved our family trip 🙂

Gorgeous!

I\'d move into this house in a heartbeat if I could! My family loved our trip. My older kids spent everyday kayaking and snorkeling while the younger ones never wanted to get out of the pool. We spent a day at Seven Mile Beach but we preferred the quiet we had at Twin Palms. The beach was gorgeous and the weather was so perfect! Can\'t wait to come back to Twin Palm next year!

First Trip to Grand Cayman!

We recently stayed at Twin Palms with our best friends family and it was absolutely perfect! The pictures just do not do this house justice! From the second we stepped foot in the house, we knew that we would be back next year. When our teenagers weren\'t in the gaming room, they were out snorkeling with the Silver Thatch gear we picked up, kayaking, or over at Rum Point. Our youngest was very fond of the dolphin fountain by the pool. The kitchen was stunning and the bedrooms were very comfortable. We had a chef come one night and cook us a meal, which was delicious. Tukka and the Czech Inn Grill were our favorite spots to eat on the island. The house was exactly what we needed for our two families. We will be back again for sure!

PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY OF 13

WE HAD A GROUP OF 13 RANGING IN AGE FROM 12-70 & TWIN PALMS IS PERFECT FOR FINDING A PRIVATE SPOT TO RELAX OR MANY BIG AREAS TO GET TOGETHER. WE ENJOYED BEING CLOSE TO RUM POINT FOR ACTIVITIES & A LOCAL ISLAND VIBE. THINGS CLOSE EARLY SO GO ENJOY THE DAY OR CATCH THE BEAUTIFUL SUNSET FROM THE POINT. WE USED A PRIVATE COOK TO CREATE A MEAL AT THE HOUSE FOR OUR LARGE GROUP & IT WAS BY FAR THE BEST WE ATE ALL WEEK! LINDA JACKSON COOKED A DELICIOUS MEAL FOR US & SHOWED HER LOCAL HOSPITALITY LATER IN OUR TRIP TO ARRANGE A RIDE TO THE AIRPORT FOR SOME OF OUR PARTY. WE CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT LINDA & HER DAUGHTER!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET A RELAXING MEAL PREPARED RIGHT IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH VIEWS LIKE NO OTHER! TWIN PALMS IS UPSCALE, CLEAN, AND ANYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR IN AN ISLAND PARADISE AWAY FROM THE TOURIST CROWDS. CAR RENTAL IS A MUST IF YOU WANT TO EXPLORE ALL THE ISLAND HAS TO OFFER & GROCERY SELECTION IS LIMITED ON THIS SIDE OF THE ISLAND BUT IF YOU STOCK UP BEFORE LEAVING THE AIRPORT AREA YOU WILL BE FINE WITH ACCESS TO LOCAL SPOTS NEARBY IF YOU NEED SOMETHING. OUR TEENS LOVED THE SONOS MUSIC SYSTEM THRU THE HOUSE AND BY THE POOL, THE GAME ROOM, AND THE MOVIE ROOM. WE HAD SOME ISSUES WITH HEATING THE HOT TUB BUT MAINTENANCE CAME RIGHT OUT FOR ANY ISSUES WE EVER NEEDED. IF YOU HAVE A LARGE GROUP, THIS IS PARADISE!!

If only Mother Nature had Cooperated

You\'ve all seen the description \"Pictures don\'t do this home justice\". This certainly fits Twin Palms. The house is huge, very open and well taken care of with all the high end amenities you would need. We spent the first 30 min. just admiring the home and then it was in the pool. We had a group of 11 adults and not once did we feel crowded. Very impressed with Thelda (the property mgr.) had two minor issues which were taken care of immediately as well as one big issue (the A/C leaked out freon) causing one side of the house to get extremely hot. Within a couple hrs (at 8 pm) we had a repairman fixing the problem and by bedtime the house was cool. You don\'t find service like that in the U.S. So why 4 stars? Unfortunately mother nature did not cooperate. The Sargassum Weed; a.k.a. seaweed was horrible. It was piled up on the shore along the entire north side from Rum Point to East End no less than 2 ft. high (3 ft. in some places) as well as in the water thus not the picturesque views we were hoping for and the swimming in the ocean not all that enjoyable causing an odor that was not horrible, but certainly noticeable. Overall we had a great time and would return to this home again hopefully without the Sargassum Weed.
Manager Response:

Thank you for your feedback on Twin Palms and Thelda.  I wish there was a way we could control Mother Nature. This has been a tough summer all over the Caribbean for sargassum seaweed. This is not seaweed from anywhere near Cayman, but from the Sargasso Sea in the mid-Atlantic, a thousand miles away. Resorts in the eastern Caribbean have closed. Grand Cayman has been affected, but not to the degree of other islands.  Please come back another time.  --Scott

We recently stayed in Twin Palms with our family for our summer vacation. It was just perfect for us, and we loved all the details in planning for large groups. We enjoyed the privacy and the closeness to Rum Point and Kaibo. It was a fantastic week and everyone loved the pool and the beach. The only drawback was the seaweed. It was all over the beach and in the water. We just went to other places to get in the water and swam at the house in the pool. We will definitely be back in the future!!

Incredible!

This is our 5th visit to the amazing Twin Palms and it just gets better and better every time. The addition of the pool and the hot tub have made it even more of an incredible experience. The minute you walk in, you are swept away by the view of gorgeous blue ocean - as if the home is sitting in the sea. The open concept kitchen/dining/living room make it the perfect place for entertaining . The separate media room is great for kids or private movie watching. The large bedrooms are tastefully decorated and super comfortable with everyone having their own private bathroom and shower. Our family can\'t say enough about this home. We never want to leave and truly feel like we\'ve had the best vacation every time we are there! We can\'t wait for our next visit! There truly is no other place like it here in Cayman.

Fantastic New Home


         
Review by Bill W. on 12/18/2016

We rented Twin Palms for Christmas Week and could not be happier with our choice. This is a new home, and although we had some concerns about renting a new home, there were very few hiccups while we were there. The local manager checked in on us a few times to see if we needed anything, The bedrooms were all fresh and new as you would expect. The kids really enjoyed the game room. The beach was a soft sandy beach and we all enjoyed swimming right off the back beach. We understand the owner will be installing a large pool in the next few months and we look forward to a return trip. Highly recommend this home - just dont take our time period!!!

Fantastic Home and Views

Can not say enough good things about Twin Palms. The location is fantastic, the beach is really nice, the view extraordinary! Nice breezes coming off the water but not windy. The beach was cleaned prior to our arrival and stayed nice throughout our stay. We have been coming to the Northside/Rum Point area for over 10 times and this home would rate as the best we have stayed in for all of our trips. The home is just huge. The living area gave everyone room to spread out. The kids lover the theater room. We loved the back porch looking out into the ocean. We snorkeled every day and saw all kinds of fish and a couple small stingrays even... We also ventured out to Rum Point for a couple mornings and took a charter to Stingray City - an absolute must for anyone coming to Grand Cayman.... The restaurants in the area were all nice and we also drove to Tukka and The Italian Kitchen and The Lighthouse. All three were superb and highly recommended... We didnt want our stay to end and we will be back!!1

Striking Entry


         
Review by M.P and E.L on 01/28/2017

We were completely floored upon walking into Twin Palms. The entire back of the home is glass overlooking the ocean. We just dropped our bags in amazement. Pictures could not prepare us for the beauty of this home, beach, location, everything!! The kitchen was well stocked and well thought through by the owners and management. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and again, nicer than the pictures! The game room and theater were obvious magnets for our 6 kids. This was a two family vacation with children aged 6-17. Eveyone had their own space and we simply enjoyed spending our time at Twin palms. Shoutout to Scott and Jim for helping us arrange the rental and for Rhonda in guest services with thoughtful email links, things to do, restaurants, etc.... If you are thinking about coming to this home, don\'t even think twice. You will not be disappointed.
