About the property

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 on the ocean in the Cayman Kai neighbourhood, a mere 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 newly constructed pool that allows visitors 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 renovated 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!

NOTE THAT WE ACCEPT A MAXIMUM OF 8 ADULTS AND A TOTAL OF 10 PEOPLE

About Bonnie Gerow

You can see us on our Coral Loft sign - Colin and Bonnie enjoying their hammock in the back yard. Curious George is always in attendance...liming at its best

Bonnie Gerow purchased this house in 2013

Why Bonnie Gerow chose North Shore

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.

Great location in the Grand Caymans with breathtaking views!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 10, 2016

Vacationing at the luxurious Coral Loft is the exact recommendation this bear makes when visiting the Grand Caymans. The location is perfectly positioned on the North side of the island and steps (literally) to the beach. The open floorplan has breathtaking views of the ocean from one of the many windows and patio. There was plenty of space for our group with a casual living area - ideal for relaxing and unwinding. We found games, books and a 55” HDTV, equipped with a sound bar – perfect for catching our favorite team playing a football game! Dinner was prepared in the beautiful kitchen with stainless appliances, including a spacious refrigerator and a great set of pots and pans. Retiring for the night in the cozy bedrooms with stunning views was relaxing after a day of adventure. The master bedroom features an incredible waterfall shower. We spent a lot of time on the private beach where the snorkeling was spectacular – such a variety of different fish swimming through the various vertical reefs (make sure to bring your water shoes)! Having an outdoor shower was nice to wash off sandy bear paws. If we weren’t on the beach, we were sunning in lounge chairs by the private pool. The owners have provided multiple bikes in the garage so you can take a ride down to Rum Point Beach and enjoy some authentic food and beverages or take advantage of additional water sports like paddle boards and jet skis. We found the people on the island to be super friendly wherever we went. If you chose to visit the Grand Caymans, contact the hospitable hosts Bonnie and Colin to schedule your best beach vacation experience ever.

Unbeatable views and perfect accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with every aspect of Coral Loft. The amazing view from the deck is practically 180 degrees. We spent much time on the deck or in the pool, just listening to the palm trees and waves. The screened-in patio was perfect for meals at the house. During the whole week, we saw only a few people walk by - so the home is very peaceful & secluded. The interior is lovely and clean. We had one rain day and spent it on cozy couches watching movies and playing checkers. The only thing I would recommend is a sleeping mask for certain bedrooms, if you do not want to get up with the sun. We will be back again as soon as we can!

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking time to let me (and others) know how you enjoyed Coral Loft. Thank you for the comment about the sleeping masks - we don't find it a problem but the two king bedrooms do get the early morning sun and we will see about arranging for room darkening shades instead of the regular curtains that are currently there. We hope to see you next time you visit Grand Cayman. We always enjoy seeing you and your family!

Paradise and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. Beautifully decorated; amazing views, owners thought of everything. It made our stay fantastic and we can't wait to come back again. Island was amazing - so much to do; locals are so helpful and endearing. We can't wait to come back - one of the best vacations ever. Truly a one of a kind home with one of a kind service. Highly recommend Coral Loft - you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for staying and please come visit again when you are next in Grand Cayman!

Incredible Vacation House - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My family (8 adults) stayed at Coral Loft for 10 days at the end of April 2017. The vacation house is awesome and everything you could ask for: spacious, incredibly clean, and located in a great spot on Rum Point. The house is exactly as pictured on VRBO. Bonnie and Colin were extremely helpful and responsive hosts in preparing for our vacation and answering our questions. The whole family had a great time.

The kitchen and outdoor grill are well-equipped with high end appliances and everything is in excellent condition. The air conditioning works incredibly well with three separate thermostats for independent control of each region of the house. The pool is solar-heated and is a perfect temperature to be warm and comfortable but still refreshing.

The snorkeling right off the beach, 20 feet from the back door, is world-class where you can find several Spotted Eagle Rays, Southern Stingrays, Reef Squid, friendly Barracuda, Angelfish, Turtles, Lobsters, Conch, Starfish, Sea Urchins, and many dozens of different types of colorful fish. There are even a few lionfish hiding on the bottom if you swim out the channel beyond the barrier reef. The drift snorkel along the coast and barrier reef towards Rum Point is excellent, and the snorkeling at Rum Point with the Boulder Gardens and Staghorn Coral is unique in my experience.

For divers, the wall drops from ~50 ft to 1200 ft only a few hundred yards from shore. You could definitely dive right from shore if you wanted to.

We also rented stand-up paddle boards for 7 days during our stand and the area inside the barrier reef provided a perfect calm area for SUP, in addition to snorkeling. You can even spot the Eagle Rays and Stingrays, as they cross the sandy patches in the ocean, while you're tanning in the pool lounge chairs. While the shallow area right in front of Coral Loft is rocky/limestone/"iron shore" -- there is a nice sandy area for barefoot entries just 100 ft down the shore.

You can find many lizards and crabs in the backyard, and even a stray scorpion if you venture out at night. Many cool birds and creatures to see/find. Our family will definitely be coming back to stay at the Coral Loft in the future. Thirty-six (36) unanimous 5-star reviews can't be wrong. Coral Loft often books up over a year in advance so you'd better hurry to make your reservation before someone takes your spot!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you had a great holiday and it was wonderful to meet you all. Our future guests like to know what others enjoyed while at Coral Loft and you have been very helpful. We hope you do make it back to Grand Cayman for another holiday and we'll be waiting to see your little one out snorkeling next time!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing place when our youngest was just 5 months and our oldest was 4. The view is amazing the neighborhood is great and the owners were beyond helpful and accommodating. They have everything you could need if you have little people with you and when someone in our party had a health issue the owner actually drove my mother in law home from Georgetown. They are truly nice people and this property is truly heaven!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review so that others can know what to expect when they visit Coral Loft and Grand Cayman. We want everyone to have the best experience possible (even if that means someone has to spend time at one of the local hospitals). We hope to see you again when you return to our beautiful island!

Car: recommended

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, washrooms and showers (all free). The locals moor their boats in the cove on Sundays, playing music and hanging out.
