Sand Pointe Cove and Rum Point Beaches

Car: Recommended

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

Approximately 47 minutes driving time (in normal traffic) from Owen Roberts International Airport, airline city code GCM, which is Grand Cayman's international airport.

If you are using Google Maps (which we recommend) to obtain driving directions,here is the direct link to driving directions:

http://bit.ly/1nNJAum

OR the more complicated way to get the directions is:

in the Search field type

Water Cay Road, Rum Point

Either way, it displays the route to the middle of Water Cay Road which basically runs north to south. Kai Kotch is near the northern end of that road. (The southern end of that road is near Kaibo Beach Bar & Grill.) If you zoom in on Google Maps, you will see that our backyard is the amazing "Bio-luminescent Bay"!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Click Satellite to see the map below Tim grew up in Grand Cayman. His Mom was 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 presently both work in the tourism industry. Tim works at Cayman Turtle Farm: Island Wildlife Encounter, which is Cayman's most popular land-based visitor attraction, and Tonya works at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, recognized as the premier hotel in the Cayman Islands. Tim & Tonya are certified SCUBA divers and enjoy occasional dives around the island. They recently learned paddle boarding, another relaxing way to enjoy Cayman's beautiful waterscapes. On Sunday mornings Tim & Tonya attend First Baptist Church, where they are active members. Tim & Tonya enjoy the occasional "long-weekend" opportunities to 'kotch' for a few more wonderful days at their favourite island retreat, and when they are not using it they make it available for vacation rentals.

Why the Owner Chose Rum Point, Cayman Islands:
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 vacation home 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 and pool 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 the 2-person kayak, 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 amazing bioluminescence in the cove. The Island Houses complex has a dock that makes boat use convenient. Kai Kotch guests also enjoy the convenience of Rum Point Club being just a few steps away right across the street, with a very lively beach bar and grill, and a delightful fine dining restaurant for special evenings. For young kids and “first-time” swimmers, the Rum Point beach is superior to any other on the island because its slope is so gradual it makes it perfect for wading, and usually there's not much wave action there. Some of the best snorkeling from shore is available in this area. The snorkeling route from the Rum Point public beach to the Rum Point Club is one of the most talked-about snorkeling routes on the island, and there is great snorkeling just off the Rum Point Club beach. There is also a tennis court a short distance away, with weekly memberships available through the property management company that takes care of Kai Kotch.
