4BR-Villa Zara - Rum Point
4BR and Den/4.5BA Luxury Villa Zara is a fenced and gated estate sitting directly oceanfront in Rum Point on the north coast. This palatial villa offers a gorgeous pool deck--complete with an oceanfront hot tub--a large, sandy beach, and sparkling views of the Caribbean sea, just steps away from phenomenal snorkeling. An on-premises housekeeper provides daily maid service. 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.

Amazing home - loved the space and fabulous viewout of 5

18-28th JULY, 2017 4 Adults 4 Children Denver, Colorado, US 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!

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.

21-28th May, 2017 8 adults 1 child AL, USA 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 definately 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.

Exceeded Our Expectations!out of 5
Reviewed by Meredith on 11/19/2016
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.
Thank you for the kind words. Yvonne and Phil are a wonderful asset!

VILLA ZARA RANKS AT THE TOPout of 5
Reviewed by Pam 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!!

Absolutely Perfect for Our Wedding Location1out of 5
Reviewed by Lauren on 02/17/2016
The moment we saw Villa Zara on the Cayman Villas website we knew the house would be absolutely perfect as our wedding location. When we scheduled an appointment to see it with Yvonne our thoughts were confirmed. Yvonne gave us a tour of the beautiful mansion and was incredibly helpful with ideas on how to work the logistics of having the perfect wedding here!! When we arrived for our five days at the Villa we were so excited to vacation there as well as hold our wedding there. Yvonne and Phil kept everything in ship-shape and proved to be most valuable assets on our wedding day making the Villa even more beautiful and helping accommodate all our needs. Everyone at our wedding was absolutely stunned at the beauty of the Villa and how put together everything was. Our guests danced the night away and enjoyed the beach and the amazing pool and Jacuzzi. The area is very private and was perfect for relaxing before and after the stress and fun of our wedding! The pool had so many pool floaties and all kinds of amenities that we used. I cooked in the kitchen everyday. And it is so close to one of our favourite restaurants “Over the Edge” for when we didn’t want to cook. We are leaving the Villa to go back to our apartment on the other side of the Island and guests back to their homes around the world with lovely memories! We cant thank Yvonne and Phil enough and the owners of Villa Zara for letting us have a super special wedding and vacation! Best, Lauren and Jyoti A massive thank you for helping our wedding day go off perfectly. The stunning house and gorgeous location set the scene for an event we will never forget. As a holiday rental the house was equipped with every little thing one could want. Snorkeling gear, great internet, kayak, beach toys, wine fridge – really the works! Staff were super accommodating and helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable. Big thanks, Jyoti (Groom)

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 MAGNIFICENTout of 5
Reviewed by MIKE 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.
