Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Fingertip is directly waterfront at the end of a sandy point in Cayman Kai on the north coast. This one story, extremely private villa is an excellent choice for a honeymoon, anniversary or just a small family vacation. The property ends in a palm-shaded, white sand beach, with lounge chairs and a hammock under the palms. The shallow, clear water offers barefoot swimming, however, we advise guests to wear pool shoes for protection. When combined with the modern, comfortable interior and exceptional privacy, Fingertip promises to be an memorable island getaway.

Location is the keyword here: Fingertip is only a 5-10 minute walk to the famous Rum Point Club and the Kaibo Yacht Club. After watching the sunset from Fingertip, the next most pressing question is whether to turn left towards Rum Point, or right towards the Kaibo for dinner and drinks.

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for a private get-away for his 50th birthday. The home and location could not have been more perfect. The privacy of the home was perfect for the relaxing vacation we were after. We barley left the hammock all week, finding it the perfect spot to relax, read, listen to music and watch the watercraft. The home contained everything we need and we bought groceries (including charcoal and lighter fluid to use on the grill) at the store in town. We ate at nearby Kaibo (both the beach restaurant and the upstairs dining and had coffee from the coffee house). We also rented jet skis at Kaibo and drove out to Sting Ray City. Next time I think we will rent a boat so we can spend more time there on that sandbar and also have our cooler, music, etc with us. A couple of kayaks would have been an awesome addition to our rental. We are planning to come back and bring my parents and our 9 year old sometime next year. The wifi and a/c worked great (two critical things in my book). You won't regret renting this home for a private, relaxing vacation.

Private and Tropical

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Cayman for three years renting different homes along the way. This home is by far our favorite. We love the area where the the house is located as it is very tropical. It gives you the feeling that you are in a remote place while being steps away from Rum Point and Kaibo and at the mouth of the Bioluminescent Bay. Our family loves to kayak and we were able to kayak to all places mentioned above. The best part of the day was the sunset. It was as if the house was built so the sun would set directly in front of it! The white sand beach was big enough for our four boys to run and throw a football around while I relaxed on the hammock. The kitchen was stocked with everything to make big family breakfasts. The beds are very comfortable too! The lanai was one of our favorite parts of the house. After watching the sunset we would relax as a family listening to the waves.We met Chloe the house manager the last day. She came by to see how our stay was. We highly recommend this house!

Wonderful Location! Very Private, lots of little fish along the rocks at the shore.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fact that you are on a wonderful soft sand beach the moment you step foot outside. Comfortable home, comfortable beds. We had no issues with the house, and found the manager very friendly and welcoming. Called once to inquire about renting kayaks, quick response. I would be willing to pay a bit more a night if they ever included kayaks as rental is fairly expensive. However, being right at the entrance of the bioluminescence bay, you have the best of both worlds at your back door. The waters are calm, very inviting. We did discover that swimming through shallow grassy areas may not be the best idea...."sea lice." Microscopic ? jelly fish. Most of us were stung a little, but it was very minor and went away within the day. In the future, easy to avoid. (I just got caught up seeing the fish.) My husband had the time of his life enjoying the sunset, a drink, his music (we bright an iPone speaker) and grilling (they have a small charcoal grill.) We cooked our on meals and the kitchen had all our basic needs. You may want to bring baggies for food storage. (Not many plastic containers.) For first time guests, I advise renting a car large enough for your luggage and groceries. Once you land, get your groceries first, in town. (The drive is about 40-50 minutes from the airport. This will save you time. If you plan to grill, be sure to buy charcoal and lighter fluid. There are nice places to eat close, but it's not cheap. Cooking saves money. It's a great family vacation. We will definitely be back! One more thought, keep in mind that the grocery stores are closed on Sundays.

Great Location Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at FingerTip with 2 other couples first week February 2015. Home was very clean and well kept and we received a phone call from Chloe to make sure all was well. This was fine with us as we have visited G.C. before and rented several times through VRBO, information provided prior to arrival was more than ample.

The home had everything we needed, little disappointed as the ad stated mid week maid service which did not happen, when we asked Chloe stated that maid service was after we left? No big deal as we had access to washing machine and dryer for towels. We did ask for T.P. and were informed that was our responsibility? Overall the location was great,very clean, just felt like we were misled and find it odd that toilet paper was extra?

Relaxing stay on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This well kept home is as nice as the pictures. For folks who like to be away from the hustle of 7 Mile Beach this location is ideal. It can be a long drive to Georgetown, but with restaurants at Kaibo, Lighthouse, and Morrit's nearby, you can spend a whole relaxing week without a lot of time behind the wheel. The property manager, Chloe, was on site to greet us when we arrived, and we received a warm Cayman welcome. Chloe helped us arrange a phone to make some necessary telephone calls and she made sure we had everything we needed.

It would be nice to have a kayak or two since that is a popular activity in this area. But other than that the house and visit were perfect.

Car: recommended

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east; so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the sound front in Cayman Kai offer the best beaches as they don’t have as much marine and plant life trying to make a home in the shallows. The beaches usually are soft white sand. The homes facing west offer barefoot swimming and shallow calm water. The sunsets are also wonderful, but the big draw to this area is the proximity to the “Rum Point Club”; a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach…many watersports, a restaurant, bar, grill, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games. (www.rumpointclub.com)

It is from the Rum Point pier that the www.redsailcayman.com 65’ catamaran departs to stingray sandbar for snorkeling trips. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina (www.kaibo.ky). Click the map on our homepage for exact locations. The homes facing south (Kai Rumba, Pools of the Kai, Kai Sound Studio) have great white sand beaches, but softer sea bottom. You will probably walk across the street to swim in sandier water) Lastly…about 20 minutes east we have (2) large resorts in the east end (www.morritts.com and www.thereef.com ) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, SUBWAY sandwich shop (and even a coffee/pastry shop). These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfers, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service. www.tortugadivers.com and www.whitesandwatersports.com offer snorkeling tours, paddle boards, jet skis, etc.
