About the property

2 Bedroom Townhome loaded w/ FREE amenities, BEST RATING by guests, BEACH VIEW

Imagine a retreat where you can enjoy a relaxing vacation in a luxurious setting…Cloud Nine…

Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of most other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. Guest reviews that rave about our location include, 'THE LOCATION: Perfect! this condo is situated perfectly. Step outside the front door, walk across the road (maybe 1 - 2 cars per day) and there you are at Rum Point Beach Club,' and 'The beach in the pictures is only about a 30 yard walk out the front door.”

Our 1,834 square foot townhome in Rum Point has been designed to treat you to a comfortable and memorable visit. Upon entering our townhome, you will be enveloped by superior accommodations. The townhome was renovated from top to bottom during the summer of 2012. It has been furnished with contemporary furniture and accessories to reflect the chic Caribbean style of Grand Cayman. You will also enjoy 2-car front door parking, free high speed WIFI, a stereo system, premium cable and DVD players on 4 HD televisions sets (including both bedrooms with 30+ DVD's), a Wii game system with games and the use of 2 double, 2 single kayaks, a paddle board, and 5 bicycles (4 adult and 1 child).

“Cloud Nine” is a two story townhome with living space on the first floor and sleeping quarters with en-suite bathrooms on the second floor. The downstairs boasts an open concept living space which includes the living and dining areas, a fully stocked kitchen and game room. There is a conveniently located two piece powder room on the first floor. The laundry room/pantry is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen. Our well equipped kitchen provides a great space for cooking and entertainment as it faces the open concept living area. The dining area is located in the center of the open space next to the kitchen. The living area offers plenty of seating with a full length sofa and love seat, a 39 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, movies, stereo with ipod/CD player and radio, soft lighting and accent wall with original art work. The game room offers a love seat/sofa bed, board games, movies, 32 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player and a Wii system with games.

The spacious lanai is right outside the foldable sliding glass doors adjoining the interior and exterior living spaces. You will find a vibrant outdoor dining and living area within the screened-in lanai surrounded by nature. The lanai faces the pool, dock and bioluminescent bay. The lanai provides an excellent spot to relax in the conversational lounge area, breathe in the fresh air, feel the cool breeze and watch the Caymanian parrots and other tropical birds fly by. Guests who wish to spend more time in the outdoors can enjoy their coffee and meals at the dining table in the lanai. Just a few steps out the back door, you will have access to the pool and our outdoor grill.

There are two bedrooms, each with its own separate en-suite bathroom on the second floor. You will find the bedroom amenities superior to other accommodations. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed and the second bedroom a queen sized bed and matching twin bed. Each bedroom has room darkening draperies, HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, alarm clock/radio with several soothing sound options such as flowing water, waves, forest sounds, birds chirping and more, modern solid wood furniture, calming color palettes and ocean themed paintings and prints, comfortable new bedding, new lighting system and lamps, remote control adjustable speed fan and separately zoned A/C temperature settings in each bedroom. The bathrooms have new shower and faucet fixtures, high efficiency toilets, and are finely decorated and well appointed. Each bedroom has its own exterior balcony within the screened-in lanai. The balconies face the pool, dock and bay from the perched second floor. Each balcony offers a private sitting area for you to relax.

You will have access to two double and two single kayaks to tour the calm bay at your own pace. You will enjoy a fabulous nocturnal spectacle only seen in 11 other bioluminescent bays around the world. When the lights go down, the micro-organisms in the bioluminescent bay put on a fabulous show as visitors tour the bay. As you paddle through the water, the micro-organisms illuminate leaving a shiny silvery streak of water. Your paddle will take the form of a lightsaber as you slice through the night waters. The dock is open for fishing any time of day or night in the calm bay waters.

A few steps out your front door will find you at the renowned Rum Point Beach, the most picturesque beach in Grand Cayman. The shallow and clear waters and pink/white sand of Rum Point Beach make it ideal for swimming and offers some of the finest snorkeling in the Caribbean. Rum Point is located in a protected marine park, so grab your snorkeling gear and take in the vibrant views and abundant sea life along the reef just offshore. Adults and children alike will enjoy relaxing and playing in the clear, turquoise, shallow waters. Also at Rum Point, you will find the Red Sail Sports activity center, where you can book Sting Ray City trips as well as other excursions. A host of beach toys are available for rent, including jet skis, catamaran sailboat, banana boat, snorkeling gear and more. The Wreck Bar and Rum Point Restaurant provide some of the best food and drinks on the island including the famous Mudslide, Cuban sandwich, jerk pork plate, local dishes and fine dining in the evenings. Rum Point Beach offers changing rooms, showers, hammocks, a volleyball net, picnic tables and plenty of shade under a canopy of magnificent Casuarina trees and coconut palms.

All these attributes make Cloud Nine the perfect place for your next vacation!

About Adela Parlette

My husband and I have been married for 19 years. We have 2 boys, ages 11 and 15. We live in Houston, Texas. We enjoy getting away to our townhome at Rum Point as frequently as we can. Our kids enjoy telling their friends that in Grand Cayman their back yard is a bioluminescent bay and their front yard is a beach! We enjoy having friends and family visit so that we can show off our home away from home. We would love to share our island home with you while we are back in Houston, putting in time in the 'real world.'

Adela Parlette purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Adela Parlette chose North Side

My husband and I had talked about buying a property in the Caribbean since our honeymoon. Everytime we would go on vacation to an island, that conversation would come back up. But, we never pulled the trigger. Back in July of 2007, my in-laws watched the kids for a week while my husband and I went on our first vacation by ourselves since the kids were born. We went to Grand Cayman and stayed on 7 Mile Beach. The beaches were stunning and the island was absolutely paradise. Beatiful views...warm water...laid-back island atmosphere.

Around the middle of the week, we decided to rent a car and drive over to Rum Point, which we had read about online. Now, I grew up in the Caribbean and we have traveled pretty extensively to various island destinations. I have seen my share of stunningly beautiful beaches. But, let me tell you...when we got out of the car and walked around the corner of the gift shop and saw the beach at Rum Point, we were absolutely awestruck by the beauty. We had a drink at the Wreck Bar and decided to walk out to the water. The water was perfectly calm and clear as a looking glass. We were able to walk out a couple hundred feet from the shore and the water was only waist high! We began to talk about how this would be such a perfect place to come with the kids. Shallow, calm water. Nice quiet, family atmosphere. To say the least, we fell in love with Rum Point and purchased a one bedroom condominium back in 2007.

Five years later, with a teenager in the family we have outgrown the one bedroom, but not the beauty of Rum Point. In summer of 2012 we found the perfect 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome we call 'Cloud Nine.'

What makes this townhome unique

Cloud Nine offers the best of both worlds...the picturesque Rum Point Beach out your front door and a rare bioluminescent bay out your back door that you can explore on our kayaks. All the while you will find yourself in a warm, luxurious setting from which to enjoy a tropical paradise. Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of the other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. The Rum Point beach and waters are part of a government protected marine park with lots of colorful coral and abundant sea life. Right out your front door is the Rum Point Club and Red Sail Sports dive shop and activity center. While far from a wild and crazy place, the Red Sail facilities offer plenty of activity. They have a great bar and grill (excellent drinks and friendly service), a fabulous formal restaurant and a beach rental and excursion center. Right there you can rent jet skis, sail boats, banana boat, snorkling gear and more, plus book your Sting Ray City and scuba diving excursions. Most of the excursions leave right from the dock on the property. It is also a great place for the kids to find some playmates to explore the beach with! There are lots of other great restaurants nearby if you want to branch out a little. You are also about a 15 minute drive from the stunningly beautiful the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and the Mastic Trail nature hike.

Perfect location, lovely home, fabulous host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at Cloud Nine! The location is so convenient and the home amenities so nice. Our favorite spots on Grand Cayman are at and near Rum Point - so much to do and see! We made good use of one of the kayaks and one favorite run was paddeling over starfish point - counting over 50 starfish! Adela is so kind and was so helpful before, during, and after our stay. We highly recommend Cloud Nine!

Better than advertised!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cloud Nine was the perfect get-a-way for our family! The accommodations were fabulous and the location was perfect! The pictures do not even do Cloud Nine justice. The place is very nicely decorated and is bigger and more open than it looks in the pictures. We had everything we needed for a great time: WiFi and TV worked great, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and for the grill, kayaks, bikes, beach toys, etc. You cannot fully appreciate the location without being there. You are literally at Rum Point beach out the front door. Out the back door is the pool and the bioluminescent bay. The bioluminescent bay was amazing – what a light show! My family has been to a bioluminescent bay in Puerto Rico, but this was much brighter. The paddles literally looked like light sabers when we dipped them into the water. Adela’s recommendations for restaurants and other activities were spot on. We visited the botanic gardens, Crystal Caves, Starfish Point, snorkeled around the point at Rum Point, rented jet skis and the Hobie Cat at Rum Point and visited Sting Ray City (booked and departed from Rum Point). My older son and I booked a dive right there at the Rum Point dive shop which was amazing! We loved the Rum Point Restaurant (right out the front door), Tukka’s, Over the Edge and Kurt’s Corner (awesome food for a great value!). We drove over to 7-Mile Beach one day, and while it was also pretty, we were all SO glad we stayed at Rum Point. Rum Point really has that laid back island feel we were looking for and the beach was absolutely picturesque. The family loved everything except the fact we eventually had to go home! Thank you Adela for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner's Response: Dear Tyler, Thank you so much for your review. Yes we are on the quiet side of Island Houses and the location to Rum Point Beach could not be closer. A straight shot to Red Sail Sports for all sorts of aquatic excursions and the Wreck bar for mudslides, Cayman lemonades, Rum runners and delicious appetizers and meals. Thank you for staying with us and I look forward to hosting you in the near future! Best regards, Adela Parlette

Cloud 9 is the perfect getaway on Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Cloud 9 at Rum Point. The condo was convenient (right across the street) to Rum Point Resort with easy access to swimming, snorkeling, and outdoor dining. The bioluminescent bay is out your backdoor! It was well appointed and clean. Our host has made bicycles, kayaks, and paddleboards available for our use and provided a detailed guide of with recommendations for island attractions, snorkeling locations, dining and entertainment. She has really gone out of her way to make your visit to Grand Cayman relaxing and fun. Breakfast on the lanai every morning was wonderful. I would recommend this place whole-heartedly! We will certainly be back to stay there on our next visit.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We love Rum Point & Cayman Kai! We were very glad that we had kayaks as we used them in the bay, day & night, and even went out of the bay to Rum Point. Great area for walking roads & the beach. Easy walk to starfish point & Kaibo. Adela gave us pages of information about the area - what to do, where to eat, etc. Great location for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, biking, walking. Sunsets are great to see at Rum Point, Starfish Point & by kayak at end of Bay. Plenty of room for 4 people & the screened in porch was great.

The property had everything one would need. The location is great. The property is older and could use some updating. The property manager and owner were great to deal with.
