Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

"U-Kai-lele" is a 2nd floor 2bed/2bath, sleeps 6. Beachfront in Cayman kai. Screened in patio centrally located on complex with best views of the beach. Minutes to Rum Point. Kaibo Yacht Club Bar & Restuarant with reasonably priced food beachside or a fine dining experience on the upstairs balcony. Quiet complex for escaping it all. We recently bought this place after wanting a spot on this side of the island for 20 years. This is where the affluent Caymanians go to escape. This is also our vacation home, so extra care has been given to make this a great, comfortable, hassle free experience for every member of the family. We like to go up on weekends, watch the kids play in the pool and on the beach from our balcony. In the evenings we sit out watching the Caribbean Sunsets, while blending margaritas, and BBQing fresh fish, kids are inside playing games, or watching DVD's/cable. Steps to easy dining, drinks, and watersports. Extremely safe and friendly environment for everyone. Our young teenage girls walk the beach and go to lunch hassle free.

Beautiful beach views, great sunsets, wonderful breezes. 4 days in Cayman Kai is the equivalent of 2 weeks anywhere else. Friendly neighbors, great watersports near by. Good food and wine.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It's been a few days since we got back from our trip to your wonderful condo. Just wanted to say thank you, it was beautiful. Your unit was our home away from home. It had everything we needed and more. The kayaks were great. We used them everyday. Having two twin kayaks really made things easy for us to go out as a family, thank you for making that happen. We will definitely be back and how to stay at your unit again.

Thanks again,

Loved our stay - spacious and comfortable with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at U-kai-lele was great and all we expected. Two adults and one teenager. We enjoyed many dinners watching the sunset from the balcony. The place is very spacious and comfortable and well equipped: We used the available bikes (I counted 10 from small kids to adults), kayak and paddle boards. The beach sand is great for playing and lounging but some might be slightly put-off swimming by the weeds 5 feet from the water edge but there is always the pool. We still swam there regularly or we went over to Rum Point for swimming and snorkeling. We would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic Condo in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at U-kai-lele this past week. It's a large, beautiful, updated condo with everything you could need for a great beach vacation. We were able to use the kayaks to go to Starfish Point (where we saw 15 from the kayaks and16 more at Starfish Point). We were all able to use the stand up paddle board, the first time for all of us and we used the bikes to go to Starfish Point for a bottle of wine and beautiful sunsets. We met some people at the pool who had stayed at this condo last year and said the place they were staying this year didn't have any of these extras that U-kai-lele did. There is a beautiful view of the pool, beach and dock from the large balcony. Then pool was really nice and we swam every evening, it never felt crowded. The beach is beautiful, with lots of mature palm trees although not great for swimming. It's a very low key quiet area but it's conveniently located right next door to the Kaibo Beach Bar and Grill and that became our go-to restaurant, which is pretty decent. If there is a negative to the area it's that the dining choices close by are limited and little nightlife or entertainment. You will definitely need a car and be ready to drive to get to things. All in all it was great place for our family and we had an unforgettable vacation here, I highly recommend it.

Charming and quiet

  • 4 of 5

A great experience at the U-Kai-Lele. All the amenities are great. The only downside is the beach right off the condo is not really great for swimming. If you enjoy a slower pace, this side of the island is the place to be.

Excellent condo, responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

Condo was as advertised...it was fully stocked and all we needed was our toothbrush and bathing suits! My favorite thing was the quality of the sheets, I know may sound picky but I love quality sheets. Great kayaks and paddle board. Even a precious Christmas Tree! The view from the upstairs was perfect, the privacy was great. The only issue was the fact that the walls around the condo were being washed as well as the sidewalks and we dealt with compressor sounds for three days, 6 hours a day. Given our preferred stay- dates, I am not sure we will ever escape sounds of property maintenance. But it seems it could be done on better days than the 4 or five days before Christmas. We love this location and condo community, ran into friends made poolside last year and felt so at home.

Great Condo in Kaibo

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay in Kaibo U-kai-lele. Condo has all the amenities needed. Clean and nicely decorated. Gave us a very homey beach feel. Great value for the money. Only things missing were life vests (for going out on kayak, but we were able to borrow from another unit) and beach umbrella that seems to have been taken by another guest. Also some of the kitchen pans/utensils could use updating as they are very old and worn out. The light on the balcony is also out, but we used candles and it made for nice romantic evenings.

You will definitely need a car to get into Georgetown as it's a good 45 minute drive and the beach you're on isn't very nice. It's on the marina side. Much nicer beaches around the island. Make sure you check out Smith's Cove if you like a quieter, smaller beach, which is super gorgeous. We totally fell in love with the island and will definitely return, but it will likely be closer to Seven Mile Beach next time. All in all a fabulous stay though and Mabel the owner is very easily accessible by email. Thank you so much for a memorable trip!
