                      Sand Pointe Cove is one of only a few bodies of water in the world that have such intense bioluminescence which is especially spectacular on moonless nights. You can check this out for yourself on a night-time cruise on our paddle boat or kayak fleet!

                      A wide range of watersports and beach activities are available at the Rum Point Club a few steps away from Kai Kotch (just across the street). There is also great snorkeling with lots of marine life around the coral shoals in crystal-clear waters of the North Sound just off the Rum Point Beach.

                      The Botanic Park and the Mastic Trail are just a few minutes’ drive away. Both of these sites offer “up close & personal” enjoyment of Cayman’s native flora and fauna for visitors interested in the natural environment on land.

                      See the Owner's website www.kaikotch.com for more info and recommendations.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Click Satellite to see the map below Tim grew up in Grand Cayman. His Mom is a Caymanian whose ancestral family have been in the island since its earliest settlement. Tonya was born in Texas and also lived in Illinois, North Carolina, and back in Texas before marrying the island boy and moving to the islands. They and their two youngest sons now live in Governor's Harbour, in the West Bay district of Grand Cayman. In September 2008 Tim took early retirement after 35 years with Cable & Wireless (a full-service telecommunication company). For his last 10 years with the company Tim was its Chief Executive for the Cayman Islands. Tim & Tonya have a business venture 'Cayman Critters' with its main outlet located at the historic 18th century step-well site, in the Bayshore Mall duty-free shopping complex on the waterfront in George Town. The main product is 'the collectable Critter experience' in which customers participate in creating plush toy animals. They also offer other plush toys and hand puppets, children's books, local music CDs, island artwork, Christmas ornaments and other souvenirs and gifts. On Sundays Tonya teaches the 5-year-olds at First Baptist Church, where Tim & Tonya are active members. Tim is now a Consultant for Cayman Safari Adventures [caymansafari . com], a new local land tour operator. They offer very fun and interesting half-day tours of the districts east of George Town where authentic island traditions and culture, and much of Cayman's history, are still evident. Guests ride in an open-air canvas-topped genuine Land Rover vehicle, on a multi-sensory adventure to special places and people of the island. These tours go to special places, some of which don’t accommodate larger tour buses. Tim & Tonya keep a powerboat ready on a canal near their home, so when they get the opportunity they can cross the North Sound to 'kotch' for a few more wonderful days at their favourite island retreat.

                      Why the Owner Chose Rum Point:
                      Over the Easter holidays of several years, Tim & Tonya and their youngsters went camping at the public beach near the Kaibo, in the Rum Point area, in keeping with a popular local 'tradition.' They brought their powerboat so that they could go into the North Sound to do some fishing, snorkeling or other water sports. During some other holiday periods they would get together with relatives and rent a condo in the Rum Point / Cayman Kai area. On those occasions they found it felt like they were on a different island - enjoying a charming, relaxing Caribbean vacation experience far away from the cares of everyday life on the busy west side of Grand Cayman. Tonya spotted a real estate ad for a unit in the Island Houses right across the street from Rum Point Club, they went and took a look ... and discovered their new island retreat they named Kai Kotch!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      Most of all Tim & Tonya enjoy the tranquility of the Sand Pointe Cove area and the secluded beach in front of the Island Houses complex, with the opportunity to just relax and enjoy the 'inside-outside' open feeling of Kai Kotch. In the mornings when they are there, they often go for a paddle in one of the 2-person kayaks, or for a bike ride to the other 'cays' of the Cayman Kai community. Sometimes they go for a ride on the paddle boat (when the kids let them have a turn!) and sometimes on dark nights they take a kayak ride to see once again the bioluminescence in the cove. The Island Houses complex has a dock that makes boat use convenient, so Tim brings the boat across the North Sound so they can go snorkeling in the day or bottom fishing in the evening. The boys enjoy catching conch during the open season, and Tonya cooks up some great batches of conch fritters. Friends and family drop in to visit and catch some of the peaceful spirit of the place, the kids bring friends for 'sleepovers,' and in the winter season other Island House owners spend several weeks or months there too, so it makes for a great time of catching up with our 'winter neighbors.'
