Cayman Kai condo description

Kiwi Kai is perfect for the couple or family that enjoys tropical open air living. This 910 square foot home sits right on the beach at Cayman Kai, Rum Point, North Side, on the island of Grand Cayman .You will be a few steps from snorkeling, swimming or wading in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Soak up the sun on your just about private sandy beach where you can listen to the gentle sounds of the waves lapping within the reef 200 yards away. All rooms have Caribbean views and open to screened porches with patio set, chaise lounges, hammock and BBQ. Ceilings are vaulted to 16 feet with Casablanca fans throughout. Kitchen is fully equipped with updated corian counters and sink, flat top stove and new washer/dryer. The comfortable Living room contains a library of 250+good books. This is definitely a retreat from a busy world and a get away from the touristy spots elsewhere on the island.....We do, however, supply a modem for Ethernet & Wireless Internet access for our guests


A Guest Speaks: Sea Lodge #18 is a fine place for easy,
private, and idyllic holiday. For our time
there, we had the entire beach to ourselves.
Everything is laid on, including plenty of
towels, and lots of little extras that made for
an easier trip and fewer journeys out to the
store. Good library of books and videos.
The best snorkeling on the island (and we
checked it out) is right outside or within a
reasonable swim of the lodge. Absolutely
no complaints - not a luxury place (who
needs that anyway?) but cool, comfortable,
and well-appointed.
Tom Myers, Maine, USA


Absolutely wonderful!!! It was great to have someone do our shopping before we arrived. One whole week with out a car or television and it was heaven. The oceanfront view was unbelievable. Great collection of reading.
---Donna Kiliingbeck (Howell)

Our Guests Speak: We are back safely from our stay at Sea Lodge 18 at
Rum Point in Cayman. What an amazing time we
had! We loved the sunrises, moonrises, eating on
the patio facing the sea, the weather, the lodge, the
kitty, the fishes, the stingrays, the palm trees, the
seclusion, B.A., her husband, Barbara, Rum Point,
the sunsets at Rum Point, napping in the hammocks
at Rum Point, the beverages at Rum Point, the
snorkeling which we did a good two hours of
everyday, sipping our own drinks while staring the
Milky Way and watching for shooting stars, living in
our swim suits, cooking our own food, napping
under a palm tree, the quiet, the no tv reception, no
news Tamra Larter, Philadelphia, PA

Guests say: We stayed in Kiwi Kai in September 2008.It was thoughtfully appointed with everything from a hommock to games, a library and even art supplies. What sets Bruce and Susan's sea lodge apart from those we saw was the sense we were staying at a freind's home-not a rental unit.
At the Sea Lodges Benji was there to answer our questions and Barbra let us know we could call her for anything we needed, making us feel welcome and well provided for without intruding. Bruce called us during our visit to make sure we didn't need anything and to answer any questions we might have.
The Beach at Kiwi Kai was simply marvelous. We were in absolutely gorgeous water 3-4 hours each day. The reef was less than 200 yards out, and there was abundant sea life for us to observe on our daily snorkeling trips. This was truly a destination we cherished and will hopefuly return to. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we enjoyed an island paradise.
