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 walk in shower.

Lovingly renovated in 2010 and again in 2017 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 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 be aware that there is currently (as of August 2017) an active construction site next door to the Retreat. Both winter and summer rates have been reduced by 15% to compensate you for any inconvenience the site may cause you.

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.

Email or call us if you have any queries, we look forward to hearing from you.

About Valerie Mullen

We are the Mullen family. Val, Dave and children Kalem and Shane. Although Irish, we have lived in Grand Cayman for 20 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 19 and 14) were born here and we now all call Cayman home.

Valerie Mullen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valerie Mullen chose Rum Point

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.

Best of Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat was ideally located for our family of four, including our two kids ages 9 and 11. The Rum Point area is quiet, in contrast to 7 Mile Beach. We are runners, and enjoyed being able to get exercise on the quiet roads. Starfish point, which we visited multiple times, is one mile from the condo. RedSail sports has a location next door to the Retreat, and we booked an enjoyable trip to Stingray City (departure from the dock visible in the photo). The snorkeling directly in front of the property is outstanding. There is quiet water and white sand for kids to play. The retreat has a nice pool, tennis, and kayaks for rent. As a fishermen, I found plenty of places to cast close to the condo.

We have stayed at many properties all over the world rented using VRBO, and I can honestly say that I have never had an owner more attentive to every aspect of our stay. We had a fantastic experience. We prepared many of our meals in the kitchen, and found it to have everything we needed. Wifi, TV, movies, board games, even a nice selection of books!

Before booking we were told about construction, which is ongoing next to the Retreat. The daily work was done by the time we returned to the unit at the end of each afternoon, and it really didn't effect our stay.

I would absolutely recommend this property, and we intend to return next winter.

Owner's Response: Dear Brad, Thanks so much for your lovely review and for commenting on what worked for you and your family at the Retreat and in the Cayman Kai area. Rum Point is a wonderful location for young families and I believe your review will help potential guests in deciding on whether the location will work for them. Thank you also for the comment about the construction which is a major issue for us as it puts so many people off. We know they can still enjoy this fabulous location at a discounted rate but it is great to have a guest confirm that they did. We look foward to welcoming you back to Mi Casa Su Casa and thanks again. Val & Dave Mullen

Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, very well kept condo with the best location on the island. My (now) husband and I stayed here for our wedding and honeymoon, and it was truly the trip of a lifetime. Valerie was so helpful in getting us any information we needed and was very thoughtful and welcoming. The unit is very clean and comfortable. The view is amazing, the snorkeling is amazing and the location is perfect. The underwater world on this side of the island is incredible, and this condo has easy access to all of it. We cannot wait to come back!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Hannah, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review Hannah. As you know we have had many honeymooners stay with us but you were our first wedding party. You really picked an amazing spot to get married and the photos were awesome. I hadn't realised myself what a wonderful location Rum Point was for a wedding until I saw your photos. All the very best for married life and we look foward to welcoming you back again one day. Kids are very welcome too at Mi Casa Su Casa. Val & Dave Mullen

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo immensely. No expense spared. It had everything, and I mean everything, we needed. It was very clean, comfortable, great space, and updated. The owners were so accommodating to us and really wanted us to enjoy our vacation. I truly hope to go back to the same condo some day.

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thanks so much for the lovely review. You picked a great week to visit so your daughter had lots of company. You had a busy week and certainly made the most of your trip. I know your review will help potential visitors thinking about staying on the quieter side of the Island so thanks very much for taking the time to write it. 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!

This apartment was completely renovated in 2010 and is

on the 2nd floor. It has 1,039 sq ft divided into a large bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and a living area with a large patio for enjoying the view of the amazingly beautiful location.

Literally next door is the World famous Rum Point Beach which has a beach bar and restaurant which serves great cocktails and delicious reasonably priced food. There is also a formal restaurant which opens at night.

Red Sail Sports shop is located there too and offers all sorts of water based activities, sunset sails and trips to Stingray city and the mangroves. Additionally there is a lovely gift shop which sells beachwear and various holiday items including Cayman souvenirs.

Rum Point is set in Cayman Kai, a small predominantly tourist area which is ideal for touring on foot, bike or by car.

We may be biased but the sunsets seem nicer at Rum Point than anywhere else in the World that we have visited.
