A four bedroom, beach house with stunning views
This four bedroom beach house underwent an extensive renovation including the addition of a pool in late 2013. Coral Loft is directly on the ocean in the Cayman Kai neighbourhood, a mile from the famous Rum Point Beach. The home sits atop a high ridge, offering panoramic views of the ocean as well as the North Sound (from the loft windows). The window and glass patio doors flood the home with sunlight and the ocean views are breathtaking. The ocean front patio features a pool that allows guests to sit in the pool and enjoy the sea breezes and the spectacular views. Just down the stairs from the patio is a private, sandy beach, perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Indoors, casual living allows dining at the kitchen bar overlooking a kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances and all the amenities required to cook (or not)! There is a dining room for family meals with views of all the gardens have on display during the year. Three of the four bedrooms offer breathtaking sea views and the North Sound (including Kaibo Yacht Club) can be seen from the loft bedroom.
More casual dining options can be found in the screened in patio overlooking the ocean. It just doesn't get any better than this with comfortable lounging around the pool. Beach towels are, of course, provided.
Coral Loft is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a beach vacation. Despite our desire to make things casual, we have provided our guests with luxury linens and towels. Just bring your sunscreen, bathing suit and flip flops - we have stocked our home with almost everything else!

Why Bonnie Gerow chose Rum Point
This beach house has some of the most intriguing views on island - Coral Loft is on a high ridge allowing both sea and North sound views - yet it is just steps away from the sandy private beach!
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this home when we walked into it and saw the vision for a casual beachy feel including open plan living (with just enough nooks for privacy when desired), cove lighting and wood strip ceilings. We have done our best to enhance what was already there with an extensive renovation highlighting the best of beach living. Casual enough that sandy feet are no bother but with luxurious finishings when it's time to settle in.

We stayed at Coral Loft March 24-31. We were a group of 3 couples. We could not have asked for a better place to call our home for the week! The home had everything you needed- fully stocked kitchen, well-appointed bedrooms, and a great living area! The pool was refreshing after being on the beach. Unfortunately for us, we were there during an extremely windy few days, so we had some days the ocean waters were quite rough & lots of seaweed was deposited on the beach. But, that didn’t ruin our vacation at all- can’t control the weather! We loved the location- an easy drive to Rum Point & quite a few good restaurants. I would highly recommend Coral Loft to anyone looking for a quiet, out of the touristy area spot!
Modern Comfort With a View
Coral Loft lived up to the pictures in terms of layout, cleanliness and views. We know it is difficult to keep Oceanside properties well-maintained due to the harsh conditions and every aspect of this property was in great condition. We were very pleased with the well-equipped kitchen. It was so nice to have so many herbs and spices already on hand. There was even a grater! Our family of eight adults and two little ones were more than comfortable. The layout is spacious. The small beach area was perfect and it was nice to have a bit of yard space. The proximity to Rum Point made it very convenient to take a quick excursion out to Stingray City and swim with the Rays; a highlight of our trip. Sadly, we hit historically bad weather for our entire week. Therefore only the youngest ventured into the pool as it is solar heated and was far too cold for any of the adults (except for brave Daddy) to endure. Fortunately, the ocean was warm and the clouds and extreme high winds did not thwart enjoyment of the sea. We are wondering if the North Shore is a bit more windy generally. There seem to be many properties for sale in the area. The wind made it impossible to enjoy the patio and we never were able to use the lovely screened in patio. Please note the date of this review. We were told this was a very unusual weather situation.
Coral Loft as a property was very nice and Bonnie and her team could not have been lovelier or more accommodating. We had a great trip.
Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed the space and amenities of Coral Loft. We're happy to see that you also took advantage of the glass bottom boat to Stingray City as it really is a "must do" when you come to Grand Cayman.
We agree with you about the poor weather - it was the cold front that caused so much havoc in the United States! It is generally windier during the months of December and January (we call them "Christmas breezes") but we do not usually experience the high winds and bad weather that we saw this year.
As to the for sale signs - some of them have been there for years and some pop up during the high season, with the hope that a tourist will love our islands so much that s/he will pay almost anything to have a vacation home here!
It was beautiful, clean, private.
Perfect house for vacation
When we walked into the house both of my grandchildren could not stop saying Wow! while they were checking everything out. We really should have stayed 8 nights so they could have evenly shared the loft! Everything in the house is beautiful and of the highest quality. The pool and access to our beach was a constant source of entertainment. Bonnie was an absolute dream to work with and we loved getting to meet her. We are definitely planning on returning. We have rented houses in the past at various locations and this house is so far above in quality than those houses that we are definitely spoiled now. They are plenty of sport supplies to use and the house was supplied with everything we needed. I can't say enough about this house other than you will be thrilled with this house!.
Thank you, Marsha, for your lovely words about Coral Loft. We think it's a very special place and we're glad you think so too!
We look forward to seeing you and your family again next time you vacation in Grand Cayman!
Beautiful, spacious, clean and inviting.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Coral Loft! Our party of seven was very comfortable with the accommodations. We enjoyed the sea breeze and amazing snorkeling at what felt like our own personal reef. Thank you! We will be back!
Thank you for taking time to write a review to let us know that you enjoyed your stay at Coral Loft. Happy retirement and we do hope to see you next time you vacation in Grand Cayman!
Everything we hoped for!
Our three generation family of nine just had a big 50th wedding anniversary celebration staying at this amazing house. It was as beautiful and clean as the photos! We snorkeled every day, and especially enjoyed our day with a boat for just us from Blue Water Excursions to Sting Ray City and the Coral Gardens snorkel. They picked us up at the nearby Kaibo Marina. Out front and Barefoot Beach were our other favorites. We also took Bonnie's suggestion to reserve for the Tuesday night BBQ at Kaibo Beach Bar and Grill and had a great time (the singer was remarkable)! We loved the pool, the view and everything about Coral Loft.
We are delighted that your 50th anniversary celebration went so well (two years in the planning) and that you were able to have your children, their spouses and your grandchildren around you to celebrate! We hope you don't wait another 50 years to come on down and enjoy all Grand Cayman has to offer.
Thank you for choosing Coral Loft!
The Cayman Kai/Rum Point area is away from all the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile Beach and the towns. The beautiful sand beaches and near constant sea breezes will instantly provide you with a sense of serenity and privacy. Coral Loft is a mile from one of the best water resorts on Grand Cayman, named Rum Point Beach, having two restaurants, a bar and all of the water sports you can wish for including personal water craft rentals, trike rentals, a glass bottom boat and swimming in some of the calmest waters on the island. There are lounge chairs, hammocks, change rooms, restrooms and showers (all free). The locals moor their boats in the cove on Sundays, playing music and hanging out.
