About the Property

Gorgeous 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home With Beach Out Both the Front and Back Doors

Away from busy Seven Mile Beach, with a peaceful palm-lined cove directly out the back door and Rum Point Beach steps away from the front door, Starboard Kai has the perfect location for your vacation. Whether you prefer to relax by the pool or on the beach, stroll in the sand or join the activities of Rum Point, we have it all.

Starboard Kai, completely renovated & refurnished, features a lovely open concept living and dining area, an office / reading nook, fully-equipped kitchen, powder room, and a large, beautiful, 2 story screened-in lanai on the main floor. The lanai is furnished with wicker dining furniture as well as a relaxing conversation set. This will be one of your favourite places to spend time.

Two spacious bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and private balcony, are located on the second floor. The master bedroom boasts a comfortable pillow-top king bed, while the guest room has two pillow-top queen beds. High quality linens, bath and beach towels are provided for your stay.

Starboard Kai has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. A lovely pool for the exclusive use of the guests of the Island Houses is located on the manicured tropical grounds, a short stroll across the beach from the lanai. Starboard Kai's two bikes, five kayaks (four singles and one double) provide unique ways to explore the area and its many beaches. Tranquil Sand Pointe Cove, as well as the clear turquoise waters of Rum Point provide amazing snorkeling venues. During the day take a wonderful trip to Stingray City, which departs steps from your door, or at night discover the rare bio-luminescence of the cove in your own kayak, provided for the exclusive use of Starboard Kai guests.

A great selection of casual and fine dining restaurants are nearby for those times you would rather not make use of the wonderful, fully-equipped kitchen and dining facilities at Starboard Kai.

Beachfront Property

Car: Necessary

Located on the north side of Grand Cayman in the upscale Cayman Kai community. Starboard Kai is steps away from Rum Point Beach out the front door and directly on the beach of Sand Pointe Cove out the back door. You are literally sandwiched in-between beaches!

You could easily spend your entire vacation enjoying the Rum Point area but we recommend renting a car, exploring and experiencing everything Grand Cayman has to offer. For your convenience, Starboard Kai has a private driveway with parking for 2 cars steps away from the front door.

Nearest Restaurants:

Directly across the road at Rum Point. The Wreck (Beach) Bar & Grill (home of the Mudslide) & Monday night beach BBQ and the Rum Point Restaurant for fine dining.

Other Local Restaurants:

Kaibo Yacht Club a very short distance down the road (with the Luna del Mar - full moon dinner and the Tuesday night Beach BBQ) & Over the Edge (minutes away by car) and slightly further Tukka, Morritt's, the Italian Kitchen, the Lighthouse & many more.

Distances to major attractions.

Rum Point Beach:

Directly across the road with trips available to Stingray City and Stingray Sandbar, snorkel trips and evening cruises, wave runner & paddle board rentals, beach volley ball, hammocks, lounge chairs, and more! A short walk down the beach and you can find a secluded area to enjoy the white sand and calm turquoise waters that make Cayman famous.

Snorkeling & Diving:

Great snorkeling can be experienced directly across the road at Rum Point plus multiple other locations a walk, bike ride or kayak paddle away. Dive trips leave right from the Rum Point Pier.

Bioluminescent Cove:

Right out your back door is an amazing phenomenon you can experience on a dark night using the kayaks provided by Starboard Kai. (Those staying at Seven Mile Beach pay $50 each for this trip - it is yours for free!)

Mastic Trail:

5 miles away, hike into the two million year old mastic reserve (on your own or sign-up with a guide). A nice alternative tourist experience.

Botanic Park (Queen Elizabeth II):

9 miles away, the park is home to Grand Cayman's Blue Iguana - found nowhere else in the world, and many beautiful trees, plants and flowers, ponds, birds, etc.

East End:

12-15 miles away, where you can discover more great restaurants, beaches, kite boarding, snorkeling & diving.

Pedro St. James Castle:

19 miles away is a wonderful historic site featuring traditional West Indian architecture.

Seven Mile Beach, Georgetown, & Cruise Ships:

28 miles away you will find restaurants, duty free shopping, lovely beach, snorkeling & diving.

The Turtle Farm:

33 miles away you can spend the day - lots to see and do with the feature attraction being the Green Sea, Kemps Ridley & Loggerhead turtles. Also see sharks, crocs, fish, birds, indigenous plants & trees, traditional Caymanian buildings, and enjoy the snorkeling lagoon & water slide. While in the area check out the 'Cracked Conch' Bar & Restaurant complete with amazing snorkeling from their wharf.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We are Canadians who enjoy the occasional escape from our long winters. Born and raised in Southern Ontario, we have now lived in Ottawa for over 20 years working and raising our two children (and Golden Retrievers).

Why Rum Point, Cayman Islands:
We have traveled extensively in the Caribbean, fell in love with Cayman, and decided to make this island our home away from home. Having settled on the island, the next step was to explore all areas of Grand Cayman and see which suited us best. Hands down, it was Cayman Kai with its beautiful beach and laid-back atmosphere. The location of the Island House is perfect, with the tranquil cove for kayaking out back, a lovely pool surrounded by palms, and spectacular Rum Point with all of its amenities steps away.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Completely renovated, and refreshed yearly, Starboard Kai has every amenity to make your vacation enjoyable. We take pride in our home and hope you enjoy your stay. Enjoy the unobstructed view of Rum Point Beach from the large front windows and the beach and cove out the back. You are literally sandwiched in-between beaches!! Starboard Kai, and our Caymanian property manager, are receiving rave reviews from our guests! Our property manager is very responsive to our guests' needs and will do everything possible to ensure a stress free vacation.
