Get ready for the Caribbean dream vacation of your life! Directly on the sand, this ground floor, beachfront beauty is surrounded by turquoise ocean all around and is an extra-special deluxe unit! It’s located at the tip of Rum Point, Cayman Islands, and offers spectacular ocean views and immediate beach access from your 40 foot screened beachfront porch just off the living room and master bedroom!

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!)

* Deluxe 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom beachfront unit, right on the sand!

* Spacious floor plan, 1767 square feet, and turquoise waters all around. Literally steps from the white sandy beach!

* On the Tip! The only unit that has stunning ocean views from both bedrooms, kitchen, and living areas

* On-site management is provided at this exclusive, pristine retreat. Owners respond almost instantly via email to answer any questions you may have once you arrive.

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

* 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!)

*Condo is well stocked with towels, sheets, kitchen appliances, dishes, utensils, bar wear, and luxuriously clean comforts.

*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!

About Katrina and Matt - Rum Point Retreat 23 owners

Based in the Houston Texas area, Matt and Katrina purchased this unit after they stayed here on an anniversary trip and fell in love with this unit! 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.

Everything And More!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled extensively and used VRBO many, many times. Katrina and Matt's condo is at the top of the faves for sure! We were so impressed with the location, the view, cleanliness of condo, all the extra towels, pillows....and the exceptional stocking of the kitchen for cooking!! We have fallen in love with the north side of Grand Cayman and all it has to offer! We will be back!

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary at the retreat at rum point # 23. We stayed for 8 glorious days. It truly was such a special place to be. Katrina and Matt's condo is so awesome. It is beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. We can't wait to return and stay there again.. hopefully longer next time.

Love Love Love this location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Grand Cayman, and our second stay at The Retreat at Rum Point! This condo was exactly what we wanted! Extremely spacious for the 4 of us to stay comfortably. The extra half bath came in handy! Plenty of towels, snorkeling gear, floats, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed, but we didn't cook often. Location is perfect as we walked to the Wreck Bar and Grill for lunches, and took advantage of the Red Sail next door. We highly recommend the Stingray City tour, the jet ski tours, and the paddleboarding. Snorkeling right outside the condo door was some of the best on the island! The beach is literally steps away, and we snorkeled almost daily. We were lucky to see conch, lobster, stingrays, and too many colorful fish to name!

The bedrooms are perfect, as we had a king bed in one room and two twins in the other. Both full baths are great, and roomy. Closets and drawers were great for unpacking and really enjoying our stay. Ocean views from every room! We also enjoyed the screened in porch during the thunderstorm that occurred while we were there. Couch in the living room pulls out into a sleeper if you needed more sleeping space. We didn't spend much time indoors, but the kitchen, dining area, and living room had plenty of room for us. We appreciated all of the information that was left in the condo about restaurants, things to do, and history of the island. Also plenty of books on the shelves for reading on the beach. Ice machine kept up with us all week, and we took advantage of the coolers in the hall closet to bring drinks when enjoying the beach.

We will definitely be back to this condo at The Retreat. Our stay could not have been more perfect!

ROOMS WITH A VIEW AND LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin! We stayed for 9 nights at The Retreat at Rum Point Unit #23!

Thank you, Katrina and Matt for putting together a wonderful and accurate website for your condo. It was absolutely everything that it showed. The beds were very comfortable which doesn't always happen! The kitchen was organized and well put together.

Our place was clean inside and out. Fresh water was already poured in the basin out in front of the lanai door to dip our feet in from our first run out to the beach. The beach is right there. The grounds are immaculate. We could tell whoever oversees the property loves the land as it is cared for with much love and attention.

If anyone is worried about less of a view because of it being a ground floor...No worries! You still have a view. TV's are in all the rooms. I would add that to your website as it is a plus. Personally, I could care less about television while there, but kids enjoy it falling asleep at night.

This was our first time to Grand Cayman. We came with our 13 year old son and my husband's mom. They bunked together in the guest room, but pushed the twins together for a king size bed.

We loved the dock at night watching the fish in the clear water with flashlights and the lights already posted. We enjoyed staying on the quiet side of Cayman. Prices are lower eating out, because they must depend on the business for that side of the island rather than all the cruise ships coming in.

The blow holes were spectacular and fun providing the opportunity to see a lot of wild life washed ashore in the tide. Kayaking at night over to the bioluminescent bay was awesome! One must rent a car when staying on that side if you want to go anywhere. Driving on the wrong side of the road is fun and an adventure. It's a blast driving and rather than missing potholes, you're missing iguanas, land crabs, roosters, and hens. Hilarious!

The People of Cayman... FRIENDLY!!! Even when they are not trying for your business.

Sea Trek was worth it and swimming with Lucy, The Dolphin in Dolphin Cove was unforgettable. Snorkeling in your front yard at The Retreat made us feel like we were in an aquarium every day. Just amazing!

Katrina was so KIND to work with!!! She was patient in answering our questions! God willing, we will be back to Cayman and hopefully only staying at their Retreat, Unit #23.

Now that I've written a great review....I hope it will be available next year!

Ask questions if needed!

TYVM,

The Ciccos' :)

Beautiful! True retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so nice and what a perfect location!! If snorkeling and tranquility are your goals, this is perfect. We spent many hours snorkeling the amazing waters directly in front of the condo out by the reef. The view from the condo is gorgeous! Especially the master bedroom with two walls of windows. The condo entrance is so private and that makes it a serene location. Rum Point was perfect for our family. We spent 3 of our 10 days seeing all the other parts of the island, and though all have their own beauty, we are so glad we chose this location. The condo owners were extremely responsive to all my inquiries and questions. From where to snorkel, to what to bring, and what to buy (supplies for condo). The kitchen is well furnished. We ate in most of the time. But we did try the restaurant recommendations from the owners and they were right on. The property managers in site were also helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!! I hope we get the chance.
