Welcome to Villa Zara. This gated estate sits directly oceanfront in Rum Point, along Grand Cayman's north coast.

This palatial villa offers a gorgeous pool deck complete with an oceanfront hot tub to soak in and enjoy the sparkling Caribbean views. A large sandy beach with phenomenal snorkeling is mere footsteps away. For snorkel enthusiasts with a taste for vacationing in luxury, Villa Zara is difficult to beat!

From the moment you step into the tiled foyer, it becomes apparent that Villa Zara is an exceptional experience. The interior is tasteful yet decadent. Large windows and French glass doors flood the interior with Caribbean sunshine no matter the time of year. The main foyer, dining area, and kitchen open onto the tiled pool deck, which offers two shaded pavilions.

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 oceanfront homes 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 pool shoes or fins for foot protection. The prevailing 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.

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.

A Real Gem

Villa Zara is actually as good or better than the pictures; a real gem. It\\\'s beautifully manicured, fully stocked, and gorgeous. Even when the weather was stormy we always felt comfortable and safe. Delightful stay.

Spectacular Sunrises In Paradise


         
Review by JS on 03/31/2018

Location is everything – and Villa Zara’s location is perfect. We would begin our days by watching the sunrise – which were spectacular. After breakfast our choices were many – relax by poolside, swim, walk the beach or snorkel, paddleboard or kayak. Having snorkeled in many other Caribbean locations, we think the snorkeling at Villa Zara beach is outstanding. And the ability to walk out and snorkel whenever the mood hit was wonderful. And then there’s the Villa. We loved it – plenty of room for our family of 9. Yvonne and Phil took such great care of us. We didn’t have to worry about anything. They are great people who really made us feel at home at the Villa. They were able to strike the perfect balance between personal and professional!

Amazing Views!

Our week at Villa Zara and Grand Cayman was one of the best family vacations we’ve done! The house is absolutely beautiful with the most amazing views out each room. The pool, hot tub and beach area were also perfect for our family. Our active kids ages 13, 11 and 7 always found something to do. We also loved the location on the Island and the laid back style of the Rum Point area. Enjoyed exploring the beaches, restaurants and more. A special thank you to Yvonne and Phil for all that you did during our stay. You were so very welcoming to us and took such great care of the house and us each day. We look forward to another vacation here someday!

Serene and Picturesque

Impeccable – is the very first word that comes to mind when trying to describe our amazing stay here at Villa Zara. The property and home offer the ultimately serene and picturesque setting for the vacation of a lifetime! Yvonne and Phil made our stay perfect. They were so helpful and thoughtful from the moment we arrived from the airport. They care deeply about their guests experience and that remains evident through the last minute of your stay. The house, infinity pool, hot tub, spacious and comfortable gathering and dining areas left us (6 adults) wanting for absolutely nothing. The Island itself was friendly, easy to navigate and full of rich food and adventures. Yvonne and Phil were also helpful in steering us in the right direction. If we could give them and Villa Zara 6 stars, we would!! Yvonne even made one of our friends a cake for her birthday. Thank you SO much!!

Amazing Vacation!!

What an amazing vacation. We were two families with 5 young boys between us and Villa Zara exceeded all of our expectations. As first timers to Grand Cayman it was great having Yvonne and Phil to talk to each morning and get ideas on places to eat and the local sights. There was plenty to do in the Rum Point area but relaxing by the pool and exploring the waters behind the house were our highlights. The water and beach at Villa Zara is the best on its strip of the island. Excellent snorkeling and swimming in the numerous tide pools were some of our favorite activities with the boys. We all agreed this was one of our best vacations we’d ever had. We can’t thank Yvonne enough and the cupcakes she left for the boys throughout our trip made it extra special.

Perfect in Every Way!

We were a pack of 5 women looking for a place to celebrate 50th Birthdays and cannot imagine a better place to end up. The house was prefect in every way (location, location, location) and Yvonne and Phil did everything to address any requests. It’s a beautiful villa catering to a private and relaxing island experience. Definitely on my “favorites” list! We will be back. Melinda and crew (drunk&shameless) CT, USA p.s. make sure you try Yvonne’s yummy chocolate cake!

Truly Special Place


         
Review by LD on 01/06/2018

Villa Zara is truly a special place to enjoy all the Cayman Islands has to offer. The home itself is gorgeous, in a spectacular setting with the best personal beach on the Island! Yvonne and Phil made us feel right at home the minute we arrived. Yvonne knows the islands amenities and restaurants well and provided us with all the information we needed to make the right choices – particularly since we had windy and rainy weather for the first 3 days. The family enjoyed snorkeling (right off our own beach), kayaking, fishing, swimming with the stingrays and relaxing in the pool and hot tub. We had a family photo shoot on our beach and the patio which was lots of fun. Jenna our photographer was great. The restaurants on the Island were awesome and a highlight of our trip as well. We also enjoyed a few home cooked meals. We look forward to coming back again.

Villa Zara is Caribbean perfection. I spent a week here with my family to celebrate my 50th birthday. The Villa has all amenities located on site with the beach and snorkeling available rigth outside the lovely property. A special thank you to Yvonne and Phil for making our stay a special one. Upon our arrival they greeted us and made us feel at home. They were available to answer questions about the villa and the island. We loved the chocolate cake, cookies and the coconut water! Thank you for a memorable family vacation.

Incredible ocean front Villa with four suites. Spacious and well equipped for large groups. Pristine outdoors with heated pool & jacuzzi, bar, gazebo and beach front - not to leave the premises for an entire week. Our hosts, Yvonne, was super nice, kind, and accommodating. She kept the house and premises impeccable and went above and beyond. She greeted us with a fabulous home-made chocolate cake, set up the Christmas decor and was very attentive to any need or questions we had. THANK YOU YVONNE. !!!

VILLA ZARA IS THE WAY TO GO!

e came here for celebrating our wedding at this incredible beachfront property. And what an amazing wedding it was! Nothing could have been more perfect and all the guests were amazed by the beauty of this place. One thing is how great the house and property, including the facilities are. But nothing is greater than the house manager Yvonne. From the very start after our booking she was super helpful suggesting vendors and giving tips. Always very responsive and positive! But when we met this lovely lady at the villa, we were amazed of how wonderful and helpful she was. Always doing her very best to make sure our stay was far and beyond. At the wedding day she was helping tremendously with making sure everything went smooth, and I credit her some of the reason it was such a success. When it was time to leave she even drove our parents to the airport! If you are considering doing your wedding at the beach on Grand Cayman, Villa Zara is the way to go! The same if you just want the most amazing Cayman villa experience. We could really not have been happier, and a thousand thanks again! Janne and Adel and our families What an amazing treasure to spend a glorious week here at Villa Zara. We loved the beautiful location and this was the PERFECT venue for Adel and Jannes wedding. Thank you Yvonne and Phil for everything!! Everett LOVED and learned to practice walking and climbing stairs. Wish we could stay another week! It was great to have great location for both our families to be together.

Amazing Home- Loved the Space and Fabulous View


         
Review by WW on 07/17/2017

We had an amazing time at Villa Zara! The home is amazing, we loved the space, the pool, the fabulous view and most of all the snorkeling right outside the back door. We saw so much sea life without leaving our house! We had friends stay a few houses down and they spent lots of time with us. So the large tables, big pool and grill were great for “entertaining”. Yvonne and Phil helped make our trip amazing! From the picking up of the house daily, to the wonderful recommendations and the genuine love and care they show to their guest! We hope to return soon!

It Feels Like Home!

Our stay at Villa Zara has been wonderful! The onsite management is superb. Each day the villa is cleaned to perfection and trash is removed. Bottled water is also replenished daily. The home is cared for and the view is spectacular. Try not to book too many excursions, you will want to spend some quality time at the pool enjoying the ocean. The caretakers were great with kids and always willing to chat or offer directions. Great time, hope to visit again! Thank you Yvonne and Phil!! Aaron, Heather & Baby “Kate” July 9th, 2017 Visiting Grand Cayman has always been a bucket list item. I’m so grateful to have shared it with my family in such a lovely home. Yvonne and Phil have been truly magnificent. Answering every question and taking care of all our needs. It truly felt like home. We enjoyed the home, view and fun excursions. But the best part was seeing all the cousins play and have fun!

What an amazing week! Villa Zara is breathtakingly beautiful. We so enjoyed our time on the beach and lounging by the beautiful pool area. We enjoyed snorkeling, fishing, the turtle farm, Stingray City and much more! Our favorite restaurant was Tukka. Everyone on the island has been so friendly and hospitable. Especially Yvonne and Phil! They greeted us our first day and Yvonne even made us a chocolate cake, much to the delight of the children! They helped make our visit in this beautiful place extra special!

Exceeds Your Expectations!

Our time spent at Villa Zara was exceptional in every way. My husband and I had our older children and friends join us for our family vacation. Four from Alabama and two from New York. We also have a four year old son. All of the children had a fabulous time. My husband and I enjoyed private time with our family in this fabulous home, including cooking together and enjoying time at the pool and on the beach! There was truly something for everyone! It was so much better than staying at a resort. Phil and Yvonne were wonderful and inviting. They made sure that everything was perfect. Our little guy especially enjoyed the chocolate cupcakes that Yvonne so kindly baked for us. Villa Zara exceeded our expectations and we will definitely visit again in the future. Michelle and Bruce FairHope, Alabama. Had an incredible time with fantastic help! Beaches were great and the weather could not have been better. We hope to visit again sometime and wish Yvonne and Phil a great time in their retirement!

Wonderful family vacation at Villa Zara. The house was beautiful with awesome pool and beach. Plenty of activities including beach volleyball, snorkeling, kayaking and swimming.

We had hyped ourselves up on Villa Zara for months, and somehow it still exceeded our expectations! The house is stunning, the pool area and ocean view/access is sublime and Yvonne and Phil took extremely good care of us and the place. They had recommendations for anything and everything and were even sweet enough to bake me a cake for my birthday. The location of the house was ideal for us – away from the crowds but still close enough to Rum Point, Kaibo Beach, the East End and other places of interest. Probably the most memorable vacation anybody in our group has ever had, and Villa Zara really helped put it over the top.

Villa Zara Ranks at the Top!


         
Review by PA on 07/30/2016

We have travelled to many places around the world - but Villa Zara ranks at the top. The house is beautiful, the pool is perfect and the on-premise staff made it our best vacation ever. We visited 7-Mile beach one day - it's one of the top rated beaches in the world. We rented seadoos there - great water. We frequented Rum Point for snorkelling, used Red Sail Tours with a boat that took us to StingrayCity and Starfish point. Very fun. Also did the Bio-luminescent tour of the bay in kayaks. Went to Turtle Farm and the obligatory Tortuga Rum Cake Factory. Tukka is a nice place for dinner. Rode the bikes to Rum Point several times. Perfectly Pampered Cayman came to the villa so we could all have Swedish or deep tissue massages. We did a lot but always could not wait to get back "Home" to this House! Loved it here and hated to leave!!

Scenic Private Beach

I booked Villa Zara to surprise my boyfriend on his 40th Birthday. As we drove into the driveway we were greeted with a beautiful and luxurious entrance. Yvonne and Phil were waiting our arrival and showed us around the Villa. The Villa had everything you could ever need. We spend most days outside but the real treat for us NYers was the incredible kitchen. We enjoyed making a few breakfasts and dinners while we were here. Villa Zara is the most beautiful Villa along a scenic private beach. I would love to come back when the Island is less windy. Yvonne and Phil were always close by if we needed them. Yvonne even made cupcakes for Scott’s 40th birthday! Thanks Grand Cayman and Villa Zara for an incredible birthday getaway from NYC blizzard conditions.

TRULY MAGNIFICENT


         
Review by MM on 11/14/2015

We had a tough stretch of work and were looking for a complete getaway. Villa Zara on Grand Cayman was just the place. The house was truly magnificent and it’s situated in a part of the island that’s far away from the crowded touristy areas. We had complete seclusion, our own beach, our own large pool and an oversized Jacuzzi. The house is amazing: marble everywhere, a gourmet kitchen, a veranda from each bedroom that overlooks the sea, over the top furniture and bathroom fixtures, and all the toys you might want to use in the pool or the beach! We suggest the two seat kayak, we took it out several times and had the ocean completely to ourselves. We never saw another person. There are top-end restaurants within a short drive as well as some great places to relax for an afternoon drink and enjoy excellent local lunch food. On top of all this, our villa came with two caretakers, a really nice couple who live on the property, one of the very few villas on Cayman with this luxury. Phil maintains the grounds impeccably, while Yvonne takes care of the inside of the house and also provides first hand knowledge of things to do and places to go on the island. They even turn the lights on for us when we were out late so we wouldn’t come home to a dark house. If you want to go to the other side of the island to look around, it takes about 45 minutes. We used wazes and it navigated us perfectly. Given all this we definitely would love to come back and take others. It was tough leaving.

SPECIAL PLACE TO STAY

What a lovely home away from home. We had a spectacular holiday. Villa Zara is a very special place to stay. Cayman Island was a new island for us to visit and the villa was perfect. A special thank you to Yvonne and Phil for helping our boating adventure. Yvonne was truly helpful with suggestions for activities, restaurants etc on the island. Kaibo barbecue with Yvonne and Phil our last evening made for a wonderful farewell to a beautiful island vacation. Jane and Chuck, Susan and Ira “Most relaxing place I’ve been”
