Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Back from my 50th b-day week and my family’s first visit to Grand Cayman (GC).A friend recommended the Rum Point (RP) area rather than Seven Mile Beach (7MB.) Researched Trip Advisor forums and decided we would enjoy a less crowded area.Planned trip in May with not a lot of availability for the busy X-mas/New Year’s timeframe. Considered several different condos around Kaibo and RP and decided this condo would work best for us. Gigi, the property manager, was great before and during our stay.Condo is large and clean and was perfect for our family of four (boys ages 13 & 15.)Beds and furniture were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and we enjoyed our meals out on the huge screened in porch.Lots of bath towels, beach towels, beach toys, and supplies. Good DVD movie collection.Enjoyed watching movies together most evenings.Our only suggestion to the owner would be to get a larger flat screen TV for the living room.Internet was not working on Sunday when we arrived. Contacted Gigi on Monday and problem was resolved same day.Views from ground floor units are not as good as from upper level units, but we liked being able to exit from porch.This unit does not directly face the ocean but still has a nice side ocean view.Before going, I was a little concerned that the beach might be crowded with people coming over from RP but never a problem.There are 30 or so condos in this complex and we loved meeting the families we met.We gathered with our new friends every evening for the amazing sunsets.Beach in front of complex is nice but does have sea grass that washes up but the staff cleans up each week day morning.If you walk up RP towards Kaibo, the beaches are more like what you see in 7MB –worth checking out.Don’t miss nearby Starfish Point – the earlier, the better.My guys said the snorkeling was pretty good at RP but they said the snorkeling was best at Coral Gardens (with Red Sail Sports.)I had read that RP is windy in the winter, and it was, but it was never enough to bother us or keep us off the beach and probably helped keep mosquitoes away.The Rum Point Restaurant next door was really good for my b-day dinner on NYE (make reservations during busy seasons.)We never ate there for lunch but it is convenient to have it right next door. Red Sail Sports is right there and I highly recommend their trip to Sting Ray City. Rent a car. This was a great place to stay and we hope to get back to GC and the Retreat at RP. We loved it and highly recommend!!!

Carribbean Bliss!

We've vacationed in this unit several times and each has been perfect. I'm longing to go back as I write this review. All photos and descriptions are accurate. In fact, I'm sure you'll find the place exceeding your expectations. Morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail on the expansive screened porch, while taking in the warm sea breezes and gazing at the turquoise waters just beyond your door is truly heaven on earth. There is a wonderful complex right next door with a very good restaurant, bar, snack bar, and watersports rentals. There are many other fine restaurants a short drive away, and tons more in the 7 mile beach area, about 45 minutes away (hint: it's a good idea to rent a car at the airport). As far as the unit itself, it is very large and will comfortably sleep 6. It is clean and well-maintained, with all the conveniences you would expect, including plenty of towels. Rum Point is a relatively quiet area, as opposed to all the bustle of 7 mile beach, but that's exactly what we wanted. The beach on the Retreat side is never crowded, so you can relax and read a book without a lot of distractions. A couple of restaurants to try: Kaibo Beach Bar, Over The Edge, and The Lighthouse, all nearby. A little further: Ristorante Pappagallo in West Bay, and Gelato & Co in Camana Bay.

Owner's Response: so glad you like the apartment, we are just as enthusiastic when we have booked our flights we are like children with a Christmas advent calendar counting down the days, If you have not been on the Bio Bay kayak trip try it, its just a wonderful way to spend 2 hours and you set of from the beach at rum point ( we are in our late 50s and found it easy and well worth it we suggest 7.00pm for best time as you can walk back to apartment get a shower and still have time for a evening out if you choose

this is our second trip and when you think it cant get better It just did!

spacious clean apartment all the goodies you need, a real home from home, the gardens are really pretty, the pool so private and most of the time just us in it, (that is probably because the ocean is just like the pool, except the ocean is closer! you must yry the bio bay trip with cayman kayaks it will blow your mind, the Edge restarant is just the best, sunset table book for 6.00pm and watch the sun go down over the ocean from your pier table the whole place island, apartment, people all child friendly, dolphin and, turtle farm , all good for children and grown ups snorkelling, for everyone free all day!

guess what we really did enjoy and yes we will be back, if you re-book on island they will deal a bit on price. 10 out of 10

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a dream vacation! The condo is decorated beautifully, is very spacious and is well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay fantastic! It is also worth mentioning that the beds were very comfortable and the whole condo was very well maintained and spotlessly clean. The pool is beautiful and the complex has a huge tennis court and fitness room with a pool table. There is also free high-speed Wi-Fi which was perfect for contacting loved ones back at home! Now on to the beautiful Rum Point beach! The view is amazing, truly breathtaking with crystal clear blue sea and white sands. The snorkelling is fantastic and we spotted plenty of tropical, colourful fish right off the pier which was big hit with the children! The condo is in the perfect position right on the beach and It is such a beautiful, safe place! We very much enjoyed sipping a lovely Rum Punch on the sunny beach! We also enjoyed a day trip to Stingray City on the glass bottom boat which is a must and a truly amazing experience. We cannot wait to return to paradise next time!!
