All We Dreamed of and More!

  • 5 of 5

Unit 23 exceeded our expectations --very clean, spacious, and had a well-equipped kitchen. The sunset and sunrise were beautiful from this unit and privacy couldn't be beat. We couldn't believe the proximity to the beach and snorkeling. We enjoyed our days in the beach chairs provided for guests at The Retreat and snorkeling the nearby reefs. From The Retreat there were so many accessible activities that didn't require a long drive anywhere...Starfish Point was a short drive (3 minutes), Sting Ray City boat left from the dock, deep sea fishing with Jake McTaggert at the Kaibo dock, snorkeling...we did drive into Georgetown and did a shore dive with Cayman Turtle divers two mornings. Although we loved the dives, we were convinced we stayed in the right area for dodging the crowds. For dinner, we traveled to Tukka (beautiful and delicious), walked to the Rum Point Restaurant which was good, cooked in a couple of nights, had the buffet at the Wreck on Monday night (great food and fun), and ended the week with a bang at the Upstairs Dining Room at Kaibo (absolutely incredible Chef's Tasting and service). When asked if we'd return to #23, our answer is absolutely! If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing stay away from all the hustle and bustle, this is it!

Best place in the Caymans to stay and get away.

  • 4 of 5

The Retreat at Rum Point is arguably the best place to stay in the Caymans to get away from the crowds. Katrina and Matt's condo is also in the perfect location within the complex. Clean and well kept, we highly recommend this place.

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for a week in February 2017. The condo itself was beautiful. Incredible views, clean, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. We did explore the island but our best days were spent right at the resort. Each morning started with a drift snorkel along the reef - just a short walk down the road and we could drift right back to the condo and see an amazing amount of beautiful fish, coral and other marine animals including sea turtles. Our 13 year old son who is a strong swimmer was able to manage the drift snorkel perfectly fine. A couple of days were windy and we headed to the other side of the island to snorkel there which was a nice diversion but the snorkeling by the resort was the best. Amazing stay.

You will love it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and location is spectacular. I've never seen a condo this clean. We loved everything about it. Walking next door to relax in the shaded water at Rum Point was a huge benefit for our fair skinned beauties. Definitely 5 stars.
