Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Get away from it all at 'Rum and Kai', located at the Retreat in Rum Point. This beach front 1 bedroom condo is located in the stunning upscale vacation home enclave of Cayman Kai on beautiful Grand Cayman.
Completely renovated in 2003 with further updates in 2009, this 3rd floor unit is fully equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing beach front vacation. The unit is tastefully decorated with high-end furnishings and the finest linens; all in an understated, yet elegant tropical West Indies motif.
Featuring breathtaking beach and ocean views from the fully screened lanai and just steps from both the quiet pool and sandy white beach (fantastic for both swimming and snorkeling). The beach features both Palm and Casuarina trees for ample shade. Rum and Kai is the perfect size (1,039 sq. ft) for couples or a small family looking for a truly stress-free beach holiday.
Within walking distance to a pier, you are just minutes from the famous Sting Ray City and Cayman's renowned North Wall, also making Rum & Kai an ideal base for a Dive vacation.
With a king size bed, queen size sofa bed and twin pull out bed, Rum and Kai provides ample sleeping options. The fully equipped kitchen and available BBQ grills makes dining-in as easy as if you are home. But, since you are on vacation there are numerous restaurants located nearby.
In the unlikely event the weather forces you inside, you will appreciate the entertainment center featuring a large screen HDTV, Premium Cable, and a hard drive media center with over 250 movies and 700 TV episodes (many in HD). Classic board games and playing cards are also provided.
Conveniently next door is the popular Rum Point Club, featuring: restaurants, the Wreck bar, gift shop, water sports and snorkel rentals, dive shop and Sting Ray City trips.
The low density complex's amenities include: 1,200 feet of white sandy beach on the ocean (not some lagoon), pool, tennis court, fitness center, on-site management and the most amazing shades of blue the ocean can offer.
If your ideal beach vacation is to completely decompress by lounging or reading the day away on an empty beach (in the sun or shade); going for a dip or snorkel in the amazing water of the Caribbean; getting up for a bite to eat or to grab a drink; taking short day trips to see the sights; cooling off by the pool; ending the day by watching the sun set from the comfort of your lounge chairs; cooking in or dining out; then Rum & Kai at the Retreat may just be the place for you.
Far enough from everything you want to leave behind, yet close to everything you could need for a truly relaxing beach holiday.

About the Owner
While we love spending time at our Cayman home, we have some family members who cannot make the trip. So when we are back with them, it allows us to share our little abode with you.
Guestbook comments from the owner
MOST RELAXING PLACE ON THE ISLAND
My Husband and I rented the condo for 4 nights for our anniversary. The condo was very clean and well stocked. We loved the screened in porch and the convenience of having a kitchen and washer/dryer. One of the best snorkelling spots on the island is just a few yards from the condo. We stayed in Seven Mile the last 2 nights and while there are more things to do, we deifinitely enjoyed the condo more!
Dinner at Kaibo was well-prepared but the portions were small. I guess when you're paying 35 bucks for a piece of fish, you are expecting a normal portion size not appetizer (or sushi) size. Rum point was great for a casual lunch. Nice to sit right on the beach. We did rent a car which I highly recommend. Just to have more dining options and tour the island a bit. We had dinner at the Lighthouse. The atmosphere on the patio was very romantic. The drinks and appetizers were good. Our fish was overcooked, though. I can't remeber the name of the restaurant but our favorite was the one owned by the Indian gentleman. The lobster was fantastic!

Very Peaceful Piece of Paradise
We just returned from a week at this wonderful property. It was very clean and extremely well stocked. The staff on site was quite helpful. If you want peace and quiet this is a good place for you. The snorkeling in front is just like depicted in the pictures. It is next to Rum Point where there is a bar, restaurant and water sport rentals. If you want to be where all of the action and tourist attractions are this location will require a drive across the island a minimum or 45 minutes. There are several restaurants within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Don't miss the Queen Elizabeth Botanical Gardens. We loved our week here and hope to return again some day.
Rum & Kai -- wonderful place to relax
“Rum & Kai - wonderful place to relax”
We have been going to the Caribbean for 30 years now, but always stayed at hotels. First time staying in a person's condo....and we were a bit hesitant. As soon as we walked into the condo, we "broke" into a big smile and were so pleased with our choice. Matt and Tracey have thought of EVERYTHING one might need on vacation -- and then some! The unit was extremely clean, very spacious, very quiet (no noise from other units), beautiful view. We loved sitting on the screened-in porch. We do not like the crowds of 7-mile Beach (we did that before), and wanted a quieter area - perfect place to choose. Water was very calm, easy to snorkel. Having RUM POINT right next door (but separated from us) was ideal for going over to their Monday Night Barbeque (delicious)...and for a couple lunches. Walked to Kaibo Yacht Club (delicious brick-oven pizza and awesome milkshakes)....very tasty pastries from their breakfast Espresso Shop. Did the Bioluminescent Kayak Tour (from right next door at Rum Point). Toured the Botanical Gardens - delightful. Walked the Mastic Trail (both ways) - what an experience, and so glad I ventured out of my comfort zone to do this. Left my cell phone when we departed, but it was mailed back to us with no problems. If you want a place where you can truly relax, be extremely comfortable with the facilities (the condo, the grounds, the beach), then Unit #13, Rum + Kai, is the place! You will not be disappointed. One side-note: the people of Grand Cayman are very, very friendly. We got a rental car and were driving to The Retreat - my map-reading was poor!! - and the driving instructions from the Managment Company and Matt/Tracey were in the back-seat. Oh -- we can do this! Well - we were confused, but had a very friendly man on a motorcycle stop and escort us most of the way there! You don't get service like that in the United States....or many places! But we found the people of Grand Cayman to be among the friendliest of any island we have visited. Thanks again, Matt and Tracey -- we hope we are lucky enough to visit Grand Cayman again....and especially Rum + Kai.
We were lucky enough to rent #13 at The Retreat on Rum Point. It was fantastic! Perfect beach for relaxing, reading, sunning and snorkeling! The marine life right there was AWESOME! Loved the décor in the condo...lots of nice comfy towels and tons of little extras included! Great place to get away from it all. You felt like you had the whole resort to yourself! Beautiful setting. Would go back in a second! WILL go back! It is the perfect place to get away from it all, or walk next door to Rum Point and be in the thick of things! Red Sail sports next door is handy for any activities....and nice people to deal with!
My husband and I stayed here for a week and we can't say enough great things about the condo. The pics are very accurate and the condo was stocked with all the necessities! We LOVED Rum Point area, it's a little out of the way so you will need to rent a car.
We especially loved walking the pier and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. We took an awesome trip to Stingray city Sandbar (this is an absolute must) that included 3 snorkeling stops-we used Tour Cayman (they were awesome and economical). If choose you to forgo this tour, Starfish Point is within walking distance and is amazing.
For Sunrise and Sunset lovers- this IS the place! You are positioned to see both from the beach in front of the Retreat.
Great condo with the best snorkeling right out the front door
My husband and I traveled to Grand Cayman for our 5th wedding anniversary 5/12-5/17. We chose this condo based on its location, price, and great snorkeling near by. We also remembered from our honeymoon how quiet and relaxing the area near Rum Point was so we wanted to stay there and experience the area as much as we could.
We could not be happier with our choice! The condo is very well equiped and the view of the ocean is fantastic. The owner has done an awesome job of mapping out a lot of the snorkeling areas on the island and we appreciated following his guide. We spent a lot of time out at the Coral Gardens and drifting along the reef. We were so excited to see stingray, turtles, a moray eel, huge lobsters, and just about every fish immaginable. The colors were outstanding. We would make breakfast in the condo every morning and then enjoy our snorkel right of the beach or we would go down to the Cayman Kai Public Beach and start there.
We also enjoyed being next to Rum Point and going over there when we wanted to. We decided to do a jet ski safari with Red Sail Sports and it was a great trip. Very easy to get to from the condo and we didn't have to lug everything with us.
We also enjoyed going over to the Kaibo bar. We went to their Tuesday night bbq and had a great time.
Our special dinner was at the Lighthouse. We have a picture of us there when there was only one table on the dock. Now it can seat more tables, but the view is still great, the service outstanding, and the food was amazing.
The reservation process, payment, and communication with the owners was easy and hassle free. The description of the condo and pictures were spot on. We thank them for letting us stay at their place and we would recommend this place to anyone. I'm still astonished that our first time using VRBO resulted in two great places to stay on the island.
WOW ! Great Location
Check in was a breeze, even after arriving at 8pm. Condo very welcoming and had everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. We always stay on 7 mile beach area and decided to come in early (Wednesday) and spend some time on the picture perfect, quiet side of the island. Needless to say, we will be doing this again ! Hands down we recommend this unit. Price was right, great location and owners made everything easy by having what you would need available. Loved being right next door to Rum Point
From the Owner
“We finally found our little piece of paradise and would love to share it with you. Having rented countless (OK, a lot) vacation properties, we are quite in tune with what makes an enjoyable vacation rental and what doesn't. The natural beauty of the Rum Point area coupled with the amazing snorkeling right off shore sealed the deal for us. Being located on the quiet side of the island was just an added bonus.”
Activity and Interests
Departure point for trips to the world famous Sting Ray City and water sports activity center at the Rum Point Club is located next door.
