Overview

About the property

Beachfront, one bedroom 1039 sq ft apartment.

Mi Casa, Su Casa is exactly what it sounds like, a home from home. This is a one bed, one bath 1039 sq foot condo with a large master bedroom (100% prima cotton or bamboo sheets), a good sized living area, a spacious kitchen and a bathroom (bamboo towels) with a bath/shower combo.

Lovingly renovated in 2010 with teak patio furniture, hardwood bedroom floor (King bed, oversized chair that converts to a twin bed to accommodate a child), silestone counter tops, unusual art work, instant hot water, comfy sofas (the larger one in the living area converts to a queen bed), fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to make even a thanksgiving dinner.

If cooking is not part of your vacation plans, there is a lovely beach bar and restaurant next door and a more formal restaurant for dinner.

The Retreat has its own 1200 foot private white sandy beach, freshwater pool, gym/games room combo and tennis court.

BBQs are available on site for your use and the beach has plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Due to it's location, we are fortunate to be able to enjoy year round sunsets from the main beach. Be sure to stay after the sun sets and enjoy the amazing colors in the sky. Spectacular doesn't even start to describe the beauty.

The ocean is just steps away. We have 4 bikes for your use , dvds, books and most importantly for a worry free vacation, an onsite professional management company.

We take comfort very seriously and you will find every chair, cushion, bed, towel and linen purchased with that in mind.

If you are looking for a little piece of paradise with all the comforts of home and conveniences of services in the immediate area, look no further - you have arrived.

Please check out what previous guests have said in the guestbook comments section.

To assist guests with having the best Cayman experience, we have also set up our own website which provides some useful additional information. You can check it out at www.micasasucasaretreat.com.

About Valerie Mullen

We are the Mullen family. Val, Dave and children Kalem and Shane. Although Irish, we have lived in Grand Cayman for 19 years and now have dual citizenship. We came to Cayman on a 3 year work contract and never went home again. Both our children (aged 18 and 13) were born here and we now all call Cayman home.

Valerie Mullen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valerie Mullen chose North Shore

After a 10 year search for the perfect beach location (we live in George Town for ease of work and the boys' schooling), we decided that there is just nowhere nicer than the Retreat. It is the perfect property in the perfect location. It's a quiet getaway but still has all the facilities you need to enjoy Island life - picture perfect beaches, delicious restaurants, sporting facilities and of course the amazing ocean.

What makes this apartment unique

The colours of the sea are just amazing. The year round sunsets was a major draw for us. The water is calm and shallow. The area in front of the Retreat is a marine park and is home to a lot of friendly fish.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Outstanding condo. We had a great time - had a car and drove all over the island, ate great food and snorkeled - we'll be back.

Top Notch Condo, Great View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. The condo is thoughtfully stocked with pretty much everything you'd need - washer/dryer (so nice to have this in the unit!), snorkeling stuff (masks, snorkels, fins for at least 2 adults and 2 kids - a few extra pieces as well), tennis gear, games, books, dvds, plenty of beach towels, etc. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, good knives - we cooked most of our meals here and it was easy to do. The place is beautifully decorated and everything works well (a/c, kitchen, laundry appliances).

Second-floor unit, so you've got a really nice view of the ocean from your patio. We spent many afternoons and evenings watching the waves here.

Val is an outstanding landlord/host - she answered all of our questions before and during the trip - above and beyond service! When we arrived, we had a bottle of Prosecco and nice welcoming card. Everything was clean. The guidebook is really helpful - read it - lots of useful things about the Rum Point community and many nearby attractions.

This condo is very near starfish point - where you can see living starfish in only a few feet of water - don't pick them up! but look and enjoy their beauty. The snorkels help but you can see them pretty well just by wading out about 10 to 20 feet from shore; it's quite shallow.

The condo is also right next door to where Cayman Kayaks does their bioluminescence tour. We did this and it was awesome.

At the dock off the complex (in front of the Rum Point Club), Red Sail does catamaran day cruises. We did one to see stingray city and the coral reef. This is a really nice 3 hour trip if you get a chance.

Owner's Response: Dear Kyle and Amy, A million thank you's for your lovely review and your much appreciated compliments - you made my day! As the owner I can say all manner of things about the condo but what really resonates with potential guests is what previous guests who have actually stayed say so thank you very much for taking the time to do the review. I hope you enjoy the summer and that you will consider visiting Cayman again for a 3rd time. Best regards, Val Mullen

LOVED Mi Casa, Su Casa!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing stay at Mi Casa, Su Casa. The space is perfect for a small family. The bedroom has a King bed and a chair folds that out into another bed. It was perfect for us to keep our child nearby. The photos that are posted do not show just how nice the property is. We found the space to be very clean and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the condo was...the kitchen, beach toys, movies, games, books, etc. We loved the proximity to Rum Point and spent many days at the beach next door. We found the area to be very convenient to many activities including Stingray City, the Bioluminescent Bay, Starfish Point, and beach BBQ's. We also spent a few days over on the Seven Mile side of the island, but I am so pleased that we chose this area. The owners were very responsive and provided us with information on the surrounding area. I would highly recommend Mi Casa, Su Casa!

Have a great summer and thanks again for choosing Mi Casa Su Casa for your vacation. Val and Dave Mullen

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! The inside was gorgeous and so well taken care of, and was steps away from Rum Point. It was my only trip to Grand Cayman, but the place was seriously picture perfect. The landlord was amazing as well, and so kinda and helpful - especially accommodating. I would go back here every time I go to Grand Cayman!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I have been in the Cayman Islands many times and this was one of the most beautiful stays I have had.

This is an amazing property, right in Rum Point. From the booking (quick response, uncomplicated, attentive landlords) till the End of our stay everything was just perfect.

The landlord is warmly accommodating and welcoming, and goes beyond everything to provide you everything that you need and let you feel at home. And we immediately felt at home! There are even very useful information available in the apartment and there Wifi is available too.

There is an onsite management office as well, which is helpful in case there is any issue (we didn’t have any).

The Apartment itself is sweetly and warmly decorated, spacious and clean. It makes you feel at home. I was there with a friend of mine and everything we needed was available (from coffeemaker, to a huge fridge, kitchen and everything you need to cook a delicious dinner). The apartment comes even with beach towels, so there is no need to bring your own.

The huge balcony has a wonderful view over the ocean. We loved to sip our morning coffee there, overlooking the sea, feeling the calmness of the ocean and listening to the sound of the waves. Since it is fenced we have spent wonderful nights out there enjoying the silence and watching the moon. What a life!

The condo is very well maintained, clean and quite. Perfect for relaxation. It is just walking distance from the Rum Point Club / Restaurant and its beautiful beach. There you also find a little souvenir shop and watersports facilities. However, there is no need to necessarily go to Rum Point Club-Beach as you have the wonderful beach with beach chairs just in front of the condo.

In close distance there is also famous Starfish Point and some other restaurants / bars. However, if you have a car (which I recommend) you can easily drive around and see the beauty of the island.

We couldn't have been any better and will be back for sure!

Greatest Honeymoon spot ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful and clean. This location is a great getaway from home, especially for couples on their honeymoon or looking to get away for a peaceful, quiet trip! This condo is very roomy and there is also plenty of space for families with children. I am even wanting to come back and bring my parents for a family vacation.

I loved the kitchen and bar area. The fridge was great and held all the foods we purchased at the grocery in Seven mile beach area "Kirk's market". The only thing travelers should be aware of is that you should rent a car when traveling to this condo, we did a lot of driving and we traveled the entire island to the different beaches, but found Rum point was the best, and we really enjoyed Star fish point also, which is really close to the condo. Snorkeling was fun and the pool was beautiful.

I will definitely brag on Val as she was wonderful and extremely helpful and attentive. Even with Hurricane Matthew updates that might have spoiled our trip, but thankfully didn't. :) Can't Wait to return! Thank you for such a great honeymoon location, condo and trip!

Owner's Response: Hi Lauren and Scott, Thanks so much for taking the time to do the review when I know you have tons of post wedding admin to deal with. We were blessed that Matthew didn't bother us in Cayman although it had us on the edge of our seats for a while. We are so glad you decided to take a chance and come anyway as it paid off. We look forward to welcoming you back with your family. All the very best to you both for a very happy married life together.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, right on Rum Point. First off, Val was great to work with. Quick responses, accommodating, ready with every detail. The management staff is on sight, which is helpful if there is an issue. The condo itself was clean, well-decorated, spacious. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. (even coffee filters--there are a TON of these right now!) The abundance of beach towels and snorkel gear were handy. The deck was nice, with quality furniture. We ate breakfast there every morning. It was just my husband and I, but you could easily accommodate a few kids with the pull out chair and sofa. We would LOVE to come back, I hope we get the chance sometime!
