Get away from it all at 'Rum and Kai', located at the Retreat in Rum Point. This beach front 1 bedroom condo is located in the stunning upscale vacation home enclave of Cayman Kai on beautiful Grand Cayman.
Completely renovated in 2003 with further updates in 2009, this 3rd floor unit is fully equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing beach front vacation. The unit is tastefully decorated with high-end furnishings and the finest linens; all in an understated, yet elegant tropical West Indies motif.
Featuring breathtaking beach and ocean views from the fully screened lanai and just steps from both the quiet pool and sandy white beach (fantastic for both swimming and snorkeling). The beach features both Palm and Casuarina trees for ample shade. Rum and Kai is the perfect size (1,039 sq. ft) for couples or a small family looking for a truly stress-free beach holiday.
Within walking distance to a pier, you are just minutes from the famous Sting Ray City and Cayman's renowned North Wall, also making Rum & Kai an ideal base for a Dive vacation.
With a king size bed, queen size sofa bed and twin pull out bed, Rum and Kai provides ample sleeping options. The fully equipped kitchen and available BBQ grills makes dining-in as easy as if you are home. But, since you are on vacation there are numerous restaurants located nearby.
In the unlikely event the weather forces you inside, you will appreciate the entertainment center featuring a large screen HDTV, Premium Cable, and a hard drive media center with over 250 movies and 700 TV episodes (many in HD). Classic board games and playing cards are also provided.
Conveniently next door is the popular Rum Point Club, featuring: restaurants, the Wreck bar, gift shop, water sports and snorkel rentals, dive shop and Sting Ray City trips.
The low density complex's amenities include: 1,200 feet of white sandy beach on the ocean (not some lagoon), pool, tennis court, fitness center, on-site management and the most amazing shades of blue the ocean can offer.
If your ideal beach vacation is to completely decompress by lounging or reading the day away on an empty beach (in the sun or shade); going for a dip or snorkel in the amazing water of the Caribbean; getting up for a bite to eat or to grab a drink; taking short day trips to see the sights; cooling off by the pool; ending the day by watching the sun set from the comfort of your lounge chairs; cooking in or dining out; then Rum & Kai at the Retreat may just be the place for you.
Far enough from everything you want to leave behind, yet close to everything you could need for a truly relaxing beach holiday.

About Matt & Tracey
While we love spending time at our Cayman home, we have some family members who cannot make the trip. So when we are back with them, it allows us to share our little abode with you.
Matt & Tracey purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Matt & Tracey chose Rum Point
We finally found our little piece of paradise and would love to share it with you. Having rented countless (OK, a lot) vacation properties, we are quite in tune with what makes an enjoyable vacation rental and what doesn't. The natural beauty of the Rum Point area coupled with the amazing snorkeling right off shore sealed the deal for us. Being located on the quiet side of the island was just an added bonus.
What makes this Condo unique
Our unit is on the 3rd floor which provides for exceptional views of the blue Caribbean sea and all the peace and quite inherent in a top floor unit. We strive to deliver an outstanding product with hassle-free service for each of our guests. In the unlikely event our on-site management company is unable to accommodate any needs you have that may arise, we are only a phone call or e-mail away from providing assistance. So please, no worries and we hope you enjoy Rum and Kai as much as we do.

Awesome April 2018 Vacation!!
We had an AWESOME vacation at Rum Point!! Our stay at Rum & Kai was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! The condo was full of everything we needed and was super clean. We couldn't tell you if the TV worked because that was the last thing we needed for our vacation, but we could tell you that the snorkeling was awesome. I saw a stingray while I was snorkeling right by the pier. My husband and I rented waverunners for the first time and that was super fun! We had a couple of days of island touring (The Turtle Farm) and snorkeling in different areas - Smith Cove was very nice. A catamaran trip to Sting Ray City is a must! Excellent food in all the restaurants we ate at. We dined on the beach for the Luna Del Mar at Kaibo Restaurant, that was very nice on a full moon evening. Kaibo Upstairs is great too, the food is terrific. Rum Point Restaurant is a great place to dine too - a perfect place to watch the sunset. We ate down the road a bit at Over the Edge and watched spectacular sunsets there too! Catch Restaurant and The Cracked Conch were excellent places for lunch. And, The Lighthouse Restaurant was another great place for dinner (another place to watch the sunset). But our best days were just hanging out at the beach at Rum Point. A secluded beach away from the crowd, drinking Mudslides made by The Wreck Bar & Grille next door. AWESOME PLACE TO BE!! We will be back! Thank you Matt and Tracey!!

Beautiful, private resort
Very nice condo on a quiet, remote beach paradise. It was our first time to caymans and would recommend this location.
Nice location with access to restaurant, beach bar etc. all you need to have a great week in this Caribbean paradise.
We needed serenity with warm weather and Rum Point delivered!
My wife and I needed an escape from winter and this location delivered. It is quiet but correctly positioned near some tourist action along the north coast. Our unit was on the 3rd floor and offered a nice view of the beach and was one of the most well appointed rental condos we have ever stayed at. The owner had warned us about nearby construction but it was hardly a disruption. We avoided the chaos of Georgetown (which another reviewer compared to South Beach in Miami) and shopped, ate and beached along the north and east shores. There is a touristy feel to the area given the adjacency to the Rum Point Resort, the Wreck Bar and all the water sport activities arranged through Red Sail Sports. But when we were done with the crowds, we could return to our quiet, clean and spacious private beach. Cayman (especially the north and east shores) is very clean and we felt especially safe. We will return again.
Exactly what I expected!
We had a great time staying at this condo. It was our first time visiting GC and we were very happy to be at Rum Point. Always could find a spot at the beach to relax and great snorkeling. Definitely don’t be affraid to venture off to north shore or east end for dinners after dark as driving was no issue. As we knew there is considerable construction next door and it was noisy from 7am till 5pm but we still used the balcony eating breakfast. During the day we were not in the condo much so it wasn’t too bothersome. I would stay again with no issue.
Condo was wonderful!
The condo and property was wonderful. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need to serve as your home away from home! There was construction going on next door, but the owners had warned us before renting the unit...which I thought was extremely professional of them! It was not really a problem for us as we tend to be on the go exploring the entire island. We did find Rum Point to be a bit windy; so we found ourselves driving to the southern coast and to 7-Mile Beach areas most days to either try out the other beaches or to have dinner...However, we did have dinner our first night at Kaibo and loved that! Would also highly recommend Deckers on 7-Mile Strip....delicious! Would have given 5 stars based on the condo itself...but, because of the location we found ourselves driving the 50 minutes to and from the seven Mile Beach area almost daily, we rated the stay 4 Stars.... However, this was our choice and no fault of the owners or the condo. We tend to rent properties away from it all usually...but, the commuting time was more than expected.
A great place "off the beaten path"
Rum and Kai is a great place to stay. The condo is one of the best outfitted we have ever stayed in. Comfortable bed, great AC, well equipped with everything you will need. Rum Point is definitely a bit " off the beaten path" but we really enjoyed it. It was really windy while we were there (locals were all complaining) but even so there was sheltered water just around the point near the Wreck Bar.
We enjoyed Over the Edge restaurant nearby for breakfast; Upstairs at Kaibo is pretty pricey but was great to just go for dessert.
This area and the east end is nothing like the built up/touristy area of 7 Mile Beach. We found the locals to be lovely people who enjoyed a good chat.
The owners were great to work with and very responsive. They were very forthcoming in telling us about the construction next door and gave us a fair discount. The construction is pretty close and pretty large (5 storey condo); but it really didn't bother us much. In fact my husband quite enjoyed watching the process. (Me, not so much!) Still a great view of the ocean from the balcony. If you want to sleep in late, take ear plugs!
Departure point for trips to the world famous Sting Ray City and water sports activity center at the Rum Point Club is located next door.
