Our appraisal said it was the best unit at The Retreat due to beaches on both sides, views from all living areas, ground floor unit, literally a few steps from the sand. (Most other units have partial views and are not ground level beach access and are attached or above other condos - this one's location and cleanliness is extra special!)

* Wonderfully comfortable, clean, and pristine condo with great A/C, UNMATCHED views and premier ground floor location.

* Rum Point Beach recreation area, just down the sand, offers fun excursions and activities galore. Stingray City, Sunset Cruises, Bio-luminescence Kayak Tour, Snorkeling Excursions, etc.

* Snorkel, swim, kayak or relax on the beach by stepping right outside your door

* Only 23 units total at “The Retreat”. Exquisite, private, location!

* No other renters on the sides of you, below or above! Only behind you!

* Gigantic walk-in closet in the master bedroom and two large closets in the 2nd bedroom. Wow! (Most owners lock these - we keep ours open for you!)

*Fun, funky beach bar is just down the sand which serves burgers, delicious fish, fish sandwiches and amazing cocktails! Try the Sunset Punch or Mudslide!

They had the vacation of a lifetime and hope you will too! We are VERY responsive owners so if you have a question while on the island, send us a quick email! We will answer almost immediately!

Why Katrina and Matt - Rum Point Retreat 23 owners chose North Shore

One of the only units with views from almost every room and no renter above or below, only behind us! At the tip of two beaches! Rum Point is off the beaten path and offers breathtaking turquoise waters all around. This unit's location is exquisite and beach views on two sides. Just open the door and you're at the beach! Our guests come back year after year and book early because we fill up! The best location in Grand Cayman. NO CRUISE SHIP VIEWS EVER IN RUM POINT! It's quiet, remote and dreamy! Not your touristy destination!

What makes this condo unique

* Snorkel in your own private beach by stepping out your door. Amazing!

* Unit 23 has a smooth white sandy beach in front for swimming or snorkeling and a rocky beach on the side that's perfect for beachcombing or exploring.

*The Retreat has its own beach and is ideally situated next to Rum Point public Beach where you can rent jet skis, kayaks, boats, or book excursions. They also have hammocks, food, and amazing cocktails!

*Unit 23 has panoramic views from master bedroom, and full beach views from all living areas.

Most vacation condos are massive buildings with hundreds or thousands of guests, but the Retreat #23 sits right on the sand and our guests step right out to the water. It's very special!

'Unit 23 is arguably the best location at The Retreat due to its panoramic views and location on the sand' according to our real estate appraisal.

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.

AHHHHHHHHHHH!

  • 4 of 5

This Property did not disappoint and was better than the write ups. The owner's were very easy to deal with and the condo was better stocked in every way that the last 5 we have rented all over the Caribbean. The view out of every window was SPECTACULAR! Rum Point is located on the quite side of the island which is what we were seeking. We travelled with two adult children.

We had been advised that there are NO groceries open on the island on Sundays which was when we arrived and planned accordingly.

We felt safe and secure more than any other island we have been on.

This was my FB post "Snorkeled everyday, swam with sea turtles, gorgeous fish, ok ok so the sharks, barracuda, 5 eels and oh yeah the lion fish were a bit scary! I kissed a Stingray for 7 years of good luck at Stingray City. Really enjoyed spending time with the sea turtles at the farm until a baby one tried to bite my toes! We laid in lounge chairs in the back of our condo enjoying the stars, snorkeled at Starfish Point 2 minutes away at dusk, moonlit kayaking in an iridescent bay, laid in hammocks, drank beer, wine and painkillers (which is what you do when vacationing with kids in their twenties), negotiated the tides and stayed in a condo with the dreamiest of views! Pinch me!"

More than we ever imagined

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! So quiet yet super close to the pier and the whole Rum Point area. The best snorkeling was RIGHT out front with a sand access. The condo was impeccably clean and the owners were so thoughtful in providing snorkeling equipment for their guests so we did not have to pack nor rent any. The condo was also REALLY well stocked with every imaginable thing one would need in a kitchen. We saved a LOT of money by dining at home. We LOVED having a washer/dryer handy too for spinning wet suits and dive skins and drying things daily for use the next day. We cannot wait to go back to #23! Rum Point was SO superior to any other area we vsisited and we went all over the island.

Beautiful condo but aging

  • 4 of 5

My family has stayed at this condo three times now. The owners are very easy to communicate with and the rental process is very well organized. Being able to walk out the door to the ocean is priceless. The Rum Point beach is so fun and the Wreck Bar has amazing food and drinks. Though it is located quite a ways from most stores and restaurants, we enjoy being able to completely relax away from it all. The condo is a really great value for the money. Last year the condo was not as clean as the previous year and by this year it is definitely in need of some minor repairs and updates. The sliding door has issues locking which concerned us at night. The floors seem to have some foundation issues and there is a large cracking hump in the master bedroom floor. I think the condo is stocked pretty well but lacks any kind of cleaning supplies, hand soap, detergents, a basic broom, etc, which would aid in the cleanliness of things. The kitchen utensils and pots and pans are really outdated as well. The master bath tub has drainage issues. Despite these minor fixable things, it's a great place to stay and I would recommend it based on the beautiful location. I am staying at a second condo for the second half of my trip at a comparable price and the condition of the condo at the Retreat is now really evident.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your mostly great review. We are sad that you didn't notify us of the little issues you mentioned. Having vacationed at The Retreat 23 for three years now, you know how responsive we are to our guests! There are also on-site managers to help you find the broom or cleaning supplies, etc. If you just asked. The tile has been beautifully repaired so we hope to see you again in the future.

On the tip of Rum Point Beach, Cayman Kai, North Shore, Grand Cayman, this unit is the farthest on the front right, ground floor so it offers dual ocean views. Snorkel right outside your door or visit Sand & Sail Sports just down the sand and choose from numerous excursions, Sting Ray City, diving trips, boat rides, jet ski rentals and more. Rum Point is the remote part of Grand Cayman, not the over-developed, crowded Seven Mile Beach. There are only 23 units at this exclusive Retreat.This unit is said to the be the best retreat because it had views from both bedrooms and living areas! Read the reviews - All are FIVE STAR!

Direct flights to Grand Cayman from many US cities including Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, NY, Newark, Charlotte, and many more.
