Platinum Collection Villa in Rum Point

Welcome to Villa Del Mare. This magnificent, Spanish-tiled oceanfront villa is an architectural masterpiece located within a mile of the famous Rum Point Club. 

After years of neglect, the new owners stripped this villa down to the bones, rebuilding the 10,000 square foot home from the foundation up. They have spared no expense in perfecting every detail. This villa is designed for large family entertaining with the privacy and convenience afforded by no other luxury villa on the island.

The new oceanfront pool comes second to none in the Rum Point neighborhood. Designed to provide guests with a resort feel, the swimming pool features a shallow splash area with 3 semi-submerged tiled chaises, a swim-up full-service cabana bar with 8 in-pool barstools, 6 in-pool barstools overlooking the ocean, and 5 dry barstools on the exterior of the bar. Pool heat is included in the nightly rate for winter stays, that were booked after January 15, 2020, from Thanksgiving week through April 15th.

An adjacent cabana houses a 75-inch flat-screen TV with cable programming and Roku for streaming. Catch the big game pool-side under the Cayman sun or cozy up for movie night under the stars. A nearby full bathroom is easily accessible from the pool deck overlooking the villa's secluded private beach. 

Villa Del Mare has many unique features that distinguish this villa as one of the best luxury rental villas on all of Grand Cayman.

Beach Notes

Villa Del Mare is located less than a mile from the famous Rum Point Club & Beach.

The oceanfront portion of the estate is a mini-slice of paradise with a private white sand barefoot beach and secluded swimming cove, oceanfront pool and elevated deck over the rocky point for sunsets and cocktail hour.

Unusual on the island is to have a sandy beach entry and also be able to snorkel and see the vibrant marine life. With most villas on the oceanfront, coral heads and marine life require that our guests use water shoes or swim fins for foot protection. We always suggest that guests still consider foot protection, but Villa Del Mare has the nicest beach of all of our properties that are directly oceanfront in Rum Point. 

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.

Amazing!

Everything was amazing! Villa Del Mare exceeded my expectations. Pam Parson, the property manager was beyond helpful. She gave great recommendations and was very responsive when I had a question. The chef that came to the house food was AMAZING! They were so nice. The boating tour was a lot of fun. Everyone enjoyed swimming with the stingray. Irene Corti did a fantastic job taking pictures. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer.

Exceptional!

Absolutely the finest villa rental we have ever had the pleasure to rent. This is our 7th trip to Grand Cayman and first at Villa Del Mare. Brand new home, and the owners provided everything imaginable. Thank you for allowing us to share your property. We will be back!

Wee in Paradise at Villa Del Mare

Villa Del Mare is a stunning home,huge estate, great views, barefoot swimming, kayaking, etc. This home really has everything you will need, and some things you never thought of! Bedrooms were all comfortable and large. Bathrooms were especially modern and nice. Living area is large and room for everyone to congregate. We did not want to leave! If you are considering Villa Del Mare, you will not be disappointed!

Stunningly Perfect in Every Way

We loved our stay at Villa Del Mare. Pam greeted us and helped orient us to the home. The villa had everything. We spent the most time out at the pool. Two huge TVs and bar area - can not get any better! Swimming and kayaking and snorkeling were excellent. We walked to Rum Point a couple days - it was nice there, good food, but we really enjoyed our privacy at VDM. Kaibo Upstairs for dinner and the beach bar for lunch pizza is a must. A charter to Stingray Sandbar with George at Silver Thatch Watersports is an absolute must. We also dove with George during our stay! Can not say enough about Villa Del Mare. Just off the charts.

We stayed 3 nights with a large group of friends at Villa Del Mare. That was our mistake - should have stayed a week or longer! Brand new home, still has that fresh new scent! Nicest place we have ever rented and we will return!

Absolutely Superb. Five Stars Not Enough. Mnaagement was helpful selecting this Villa. Thank you. Pam showed us around upon arrival. The bedding was top notch as was every other aspect. Close to Rum Point and Kaibo Marina Snorkeling, swimming and kayaking. We also ate at The Lighthouse, Tukka - loved both. Silver Thatch Watersports for Diving.

Most Amazing Villa Ever


         
Review by C.M. on 09/11/2019
5 out of 5
We have stayed in villas throughout the Caribbean and western hemisphere. No villa comes close to comparing with Villa Del Mare! The interior is spectacular and obviously well planned by architectects. Great flow. Huge living area with seating for all. Large dining room, huge kitchen. The Master bedrooms are also large and spacious, each with a private bathroom. Downstairs has a theater room and two more bedrooms. You can get lost in this home! As nice as the interior is, the oceanfront pool is exceptional and the nicest we have ever seen. Two large TVs, pool with loungers and stools built in, and ocean views of paradise. Sandy beach with barefoot swimming for our children, kayaks and a weed barrier of some sort (must work because the beach is clean, while others around us had seaweed). Local restaurants were nice, Rum Point, Kaibo, Lighthouse, Tukka. Starfish Point was nice. We took a charter through Silver Thatch to the stingrays - must do! Crystal Caves were impressive, blow holes were ok. Thank you for sharing your wonderful villa with our family. The only negative was having to leave. Undoubtedly we will return. Highest recommendation to anyone considering this property.

Villa Del Mare - June 2019 Family Reunion


         
Review by Kent Brown on 08/07/2019
5 out of 5
Our extended family of 14 loved staying at Villa Del Mare. While there were 14 of us, the home could have easily handled 20+ guests as there were 6 spacious king bedroom suites with full bathrooms. All of the kids loved the lower-level area as well as there were Twin Bunks in one room, the other room had 2 queens and there was also a TV room with pull out couches that had a huge TV & the internet connectivity was great throughout the home! The views of the Ocean from this home are beyond incredible as the homes has huge windows and sliding doors which made for great viewing. The layout offered plenty of privacy as the house sits on an enormous yard with a private beach and there were so many areas around the exterior of the home that created a number of places to gather as well as the inside as the Great Room was awesome as we could all watch TV at night together! The swim-up bar was beyond incredible as we felt like were at a resort as there were a ton of bar stools inside the pool and outside the pool, they had an enormous TV that we watched every evening and they had a bunch of chaise loungers inside the pool to suntan at! The large, gourmet kitchen allowed us to prepare our meals and to also have hired chefs to come to the home to cook for us. The large home offered so many places for us to eat dinner at, which made it hard to decide as they had huge dining table in the front of the home, in the dining room, a ton of seating in the kitchen and then out back there was another huge dining table facing the ocean that was close to the swim-up bar. We also loved the fact about how close we were to Rum Point as it created an opportunity for entire family to go on a few walks. Being on the water and able to literally walk to the Ocean was also a great feature on the days that it was not windy as there was an abundance of sea-life to observe. There was a constant breeze which was great as it kept the mosquitoes away & kept us cool in the hot sun! AWESOME HOME!

Caymans - July 2019


         
Review by Renee on 08/07/2019

Our experience at Villa Del Mare was nothing short of amazing. The Swim-Up Bar, the Views, the Huge Bedroom, everything was just perfect! We had a blast and will never forget this vacation. What a location as the home is like a mini-resort as it sits on a huge piece of property and offers all of the privacy you could want and we could walk to Rum Point in just 10 minutes! We loved the swim-up bar as you could spend your entire time just in the pool bar area! I love it as we could always eat as an entire family as the tables were enormous and everywhere. Our kids enjoyed every minute especially in the lower-level bunks and media room. Definitely an unforgettable experience. We already miss it, and will definitely return!

Grand Cayman July 2019


         
Review by Matt on 08/07/2019

We\'ve been to Cayman’s numerous times and have stayed at a number of the smaller resorts on 7-mile . We were looking for a slightly different experience as we wanted to be able to have everyone stay together at the same home and the Villa Del Mare exceeded our expectations. The home was immaculate and perfect for all four families. The 6 very large King Size Suites with full bathrooms made it very comfortable for everyone as this accommodated all of the adults and older kids and the lower-level was incredible as there were twin bunk-beds and a sleeper sofa and each bunk-bed had its own TV – Kid’s loved this. There was also another large room with 2 Queens as well as a TV room with sofa sleeper that had a massive TV and a foosball table. Being right on the beach made for an incomparable view. The huge pool with Swim-Up bar made it feel like we were at our own private resort. The location is \"just remote enough” in comparison to the hustle/bustle with 7-Mile. The kitchen and dining areas were so well done that ended-up eating at home every night versus going out. We will be back!
Manager Response:

Thank you for your review. Villa Del Mare is a wonderful home, the gem of Rum Point!

Please come back soon!
