About the owner: We are private owners of The Laurelei, purchased in 2001 from the original owners. The Laurelei is one of only 4 groundfloor condos with a private deck & back door opening directly onto the beach. 18 feet of sliding glass doors open to gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. The complex of 10 units was completely rebuilt with state-of-the-art concrete construction (one of the strongest systems possible) after Hurricane Ivan caused damage in late 2004. We chose luxury upgrades, added custom furnishings, fine bedding & upholstery & linens, along with artistic touches such as original artworks and island sculpture. We take pride in constantly updating our island home, providing all the amenities and in making it as comfortable and affordable as possible for our happy guests.
Why the Owner Chose Rum Point: Things we love about our island home:
We love the intimacy of a small island and the friendly and safe atmosphere that Grand Cayman offers. The North Side beaches are empty, secluded, with many open seaside areas & exclusive homes on large lots. Being alone with nature and the Sea and most of the time having the beach to ourselves is priceless. Knowing the weather and the Sea are always warm. The sea & sky are ever-changing to different hues of turquoise and cobalt, and one is enveloped in a feeling of peace and relaxation.
The North Pointe complex has a wonderful management, friendly helpful owners, and is the only apartment complex within 2 miles. The Laurelei is fully licensed with the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.
