North Side condo description

This tropical open air one bed condo is set right on the sandy beach in Rum Point on the Caribbean.
Just a few steps from the water, this property features great ocean views, convenient snorkeling and excellent swimming, protected by a reef, in the friendly community of Cayman Kai.
This is the best holiday rental value you'll find in one of the most peaceful, friendly communities in Grand Cayman. Visit the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Botanical Garden or Sting Ray City. Daily side-trips to Cuba available from Cayman air.

All free extras! We provide snorkels and fins. Please bring your own fitted mask. Free phone service is available for local calls as well as free High speed BroadBand wireless Internet access!


Comfortable Open Air Living with Great views: Simple Pleasures is a one-bedroom 910 square foot condo that sleeps two comfortably. It is tropical open-air living with screen porches at either end, positioned oblique to the tradewinds and the water to gentle the breezes and provide an unobstructed view of the Caribbean.

Simple Pleasures is one of 16 condos called the Sea Lodges of Cayman Kai, set on 3 ½ acres of which 400 feet front the Caribbean Sea, with sandy beach. Rum Point is like the Old Cayman, and unlike the tourist areas. There are no hotels and no building is over 3 stories high. Simple Pleasures at the Sea Lodges of Cayman Kai is located on a white sandy beach with ideal Caribbean swimming and snorkeling.

Sandy Beach and Clear Caribbean Water: The beach and the water off Simple Pleasures at the Sea Lodges are ideal. Simple Pleasures is set on a sandy beach -not an Iron Shore beach. It is on the Caribbean itself, not on the still water of a Sound. The gradually deepening water is perfect for swimming. The coral reef 150 yards out is easily reached by snorkelers.
The Sea Lodges have what the locals like to call” the 16 million-dollar view”. Simple Pleasures is right on that beach!
As a guest, we supply you with snorkels and fins. We recommend you purchase a quality mask that fits you perfectly before leaving for your rum Point vacation.

Eco-Tours: Hike the Mastic trail in 3 hours with a very knowledgeable guide from Silver Thatch Tours.
Paddle your kayak through the magrove waters-incubators of most fish we find on reefs right off Rum Point.

                      Simple Pleasures is located on the beach in Rum Point, 50 yards from the waters' edge. This part of the Caribbean is a Marine Park where all marine life is protected.

                      It is a ten minute walk from the Sea Lodge to the Wreck Beach Bar and Grille, the public beach at the Rum Point Club, and Red Sail Sports dive shop and watercraft rentals.

                      Grand Cayman is 260 miles South of Havana Cuba. Though only 12 feet above sea level it is 20,000 feet above the underwater Cayman Trough. Divers'-snorkelers' paradise. And affordable!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: My husband, Bob, and I own sea lodge #20 at Cayman Kai, along with his 3 other siblings. We've been visiting Grand Cayman for over 30 years. Quite a bit has changed on the island in that time, however our little corner in Northside is surprisingly unchanged. Yes, the road is now paved, and public water has just been installed, but the quiet, secluded nature of our end of the island is still quite special. Bob and I now live in Sarasota, FL with our two German Shorthaired Pointer rescues, Bailey and Lilly. Bob's parents, original #20 sea lodge owners, are 90 and 95, and live here in Sarasota as well. We like to visit them often and keep an eye on them. We have 2 grown children and 1 adorable grandson, Ezra!

                      Why the Owner Chose North Side:
                      Our lives are all so busy, hectic, and full of chatter. Simple Pleasures is a special place to step away from all that and really breathe. I've resisted television and the telephone hardly rings. It's a wonderful place to truly relax.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      To sit on the back screened porch and soak in the view and quiet presence is one of my very special things to do.
