We were first time visitors the Grand Cayman but have travelled extensively as a Family all over the World. We booked 2 weeks in August hoping to find somewhere hoping to keep 2 teenage Daughters and a Son of 10 years entertained, but also give my wife and I some relaxation. A Car rental is essential for Rum Point, we were collected from the Airport by McCurleys as part of their rental Car deal, would recommend this but check the Car is right hand drive before you book. They stop off at a Supermarket en-route to the Condo which is very helpful, particularly if you arrive on Saturday as ALL shops are closed on Sunday. When we arrived at the Condo we immediately knew we had picked the best positioned Condo at The Retreat. It is the closest one to the Ocean and has amazing views from 2 sides plus a completey private sundeck off the 3rd floor master suite. The Condo is a credit to its owners and is filled with tasteful furnature of high quality. The kitchen has every appliance you will ever need, the cookware is of a very high standard again way better than you will normally find in a rental property. There are many inflatables floats stored on the patio including a 3 man boat with paddles. There is also 4 sets of Snorkle gear etc. There is no need to bring beach towels as these are also provided. There are many DVD's and books around should you have a rainy day or fancy a night in. The management office at the Retreat are extremely helpful and always seem to be around if you need advice or need a light bulb etc. This Condo feels much more like a private residence than a rental and we feel extremely lucky to have spent 2 weeks in paradise. We eat in and out with the children and would recommend the lighthouse, over the edge, kaibo club and rum point itself all well priced and the children were made welcome. We have no doubt in recommending the destination and hope to return in the future.
Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children, romantic getaway.
Perfect Piece of Paradise

Our family of four recently returned from a two week stay at this fantastic home. Located on what we consider the peaceful side of the island, the route to Rum Point is easily accomplished using the map from the rental car agency or instructions provided via email by the Retreat managers. This IS truly paradise! I believe this condo has the best sea view of any available at the Retreat with full glass sliding doors enclosing the entire north side of the condo on both the second and third floors and sea views from 2 sides. A screened in lanai and open air lanai offer an absolutely stunning outdoor view and the sound of gentle waves lapping the shore creates a soothing and inviting space for any time of day or night. All furnishings in this condo are high end and luxurious and certainly enhanced our vacation. The appliances, cookware and utensils are numerous, spotless and in excellent condition. The ice maker was efficient and we always found copious amounts of ice available. All linens including beach towels are of exceptional quality and a housekeeper was provided each Wednesday. We utilized the services of Cayman Shoppers so all groceries had been purchased and stored before our arrival.
Just off the beach of this condo is some of the best snorkeling on the island. This area has a large shallow area, less intimidating for those inexperienced or young, before gaining depth just a bit further out. Assorted stingrays, octopi, turtles, lionfish and multitudes of colorful fish were prevalent in our experience offering plenty of excitement for day or night time snorkeling. Various tours and equipment rentals from the Rum Point Pier are offered by Red Sail Sports next door. There is also a Rum Point Club restaurant for fine dining at dinner, the Wreck Bar & Grill for beach lunches and beverages, and a gift shop. Cruise ship guests do spend some time next door on occasion but are definitely not an intrusion over onto the Retreat area where the beach chairs are reserved. A car is definitely required and provides access to a multitude of restaurants and sites in the area. We drove into 'town' frequently and found the drive a pleasant way to experience more of the island. There are also bikes and kayaks for rent. The owners and managers were perfect to work with - always available and answering any questions in a timely fashion.
We have truly found our perfect piece of Paradise at this beautiful condo!
This is a fantastic property right on the Beach. Unit is clean and pictures are accurate. Very nice balcony and screened in porch that overlooks beach/ocean. Great snorkeling and view of the sunset. Had a group of six and we had plenty of room. Nice to have laundry and we able to cook our meals on site. Location is perfect. We really couldn't have asked for anything more as all in our group were pleased. I wouldnt hesitate to rent again. .
We traveled with friends to the beautiful Rum Point Retreat for a week stay! The accommodations were absolutely beautiful and the view from the patio was indescribable! We felt so welcome when we first entered the home as our hosts welcomed us with a gift of Tortuga Rum cake and a book about the Island. Morning coffee and dinner after sunset on the screened in patio was a favorite time for all of us. The beach was clean, stunning and a superb place to spend the day and watch the sunset. Although the beach was private and quiet, you were only a few short steps away from a lively bar/restaurant and souvenir shop. The area provided us with ongoing entertainment such as snorkeling, sting ray city, starfish point, and Georgetown just a drive away. In the evening, it was wonderful to retire to our own separate bed/bathroom retreats! I would highly recommended The Retreat and we hope that we have the opportunity to return some day!
My family just returned from a week in Grand Cayman, and this rental was the perfect location for us. We are a family of seven (three couples and a 7 month old) and we had plenty of room. There is one room with two twin beds which is probably better suited for kids, but with each bedroom having its own bathroom the privacy was paramount. The AC kept us cool at night,and during the day we opened slid back the wall of sliding glass doors to allow the breeze to flow through the unit.
Breakfast on the upstairs patio was a great way to start the day. The views were breathtaking, and the convenience to rum point and and the local restaurants made accommodating all six of us easy.
Gigi, our contact, was very helpful and provided a pack-n-play and highchair, and was available to answer questions via email. The wifi was good and easy to connect to.
We had a little bit of difficulty finding The Retreat at Rum Point upon arrival, but that might be because we are so used to relying on GPS old fashioned directions were difficult, especially when driving on the left side of the road.
We would definitely stay here if we go back.
When you see the pictures you wonder if it will be as nice as it looks in the pictures. Well It is. This place is amazing. A suggestion. Stock up at the supermarket before you get there. The market it 25 minutes away. There are great restaurants nearby and Rum Point Beach is steps away. You cannot beat the view.
The view from the deck is where you will want to be for the rest of you life. Clean and nicely equipped. Great snorkeling nearby. Great find.
We recently stayed here for a week long family vacation. There were 7 of us total (ages 3 yrs to 60yrs) and had more than enough room. We arrived in the evening and found a delicious Tortuga Rum Cake as well as a booklet on the Cayman Islands for us. The condo is decorated/furnished beautifully and has everything you need while on vacation. You can leave your beach towels, snorkel gear and beach toys at home as there are plenty there for everyone to use. Since we arrived after the sun had set, we didn't get to see the amazing views until we woke up the next morning. All three bedrooms had a view of the ocean!! I was worried the beach would be crowded but it wasn't at all! There were plenty of spots to choose from, whether you wanted direct sun or complete shade! The water was breathtaking with the most beautiful shades of blue I have ever seen! To the far right of the beach, there was a rocky bottom entrance which was perfect for the snorkelers in the group. The rest of the beach had a sandy bottom which was perfect for my two small children. We did eat out at the neighboring restaurant one evening and had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was fantastic! We ventured away from Rum Point for one day during our visit. We spent that day visiting Turtle Farm and Dolphin Discovery. I recommend doing both of these. On our last full day, we took the glass bottom boat to Stingray City. It was an unbelievable experience!
All the people that we met while at Rum Point, whether they were vacationers or Islanders, were so friendly. It was very hard to leave to come back home. We hope to return soon!
