About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Walt Whitman's 'When I Peruse the Conquered Fame' celebrates the beauty and value in true lifelong love and emphasizes keeping perspective in life. The hustle and bustle of today's world can often make it challenging to do this. Every once in a while, we need to step away from all the pressures and all the burdens on our road towards success, and, at least temporarily, conquer fame and regain life's balance...

Come escape to a paradise where a relaxed pace and peaceful days are the norm. Come, regain perspective as you read a book by the sea, lay on the beach, or watch the sunset over the water's waves. Come and spend some time at Conquered Fame.

This newly-renovated, fully-furnished four bedroom, two bath home easily sleeps at least eight and is perfect for multiple couples, a large family, or two families vacationing together. Guests staying in the two master bedrooms (one king bed and one queen bed) will awaken to gorgeous views over the turquoise Caribbean water. Two additional bedrooms, one with a double bed and a twin bed and the other with two twin beds, are perfect for the kids or other guests. The full-kitchen and living room share vaulted ceilings and provide all of the conveniences of home, including a microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, cooking utensils, cable TV, and DVD player (and a washer and dryer in a separate room). The house also has a phone for local calls and high speed internet access. The sunroom, containing the dining area and a separate reading area, enjoys panoramic views over the ocean and your own private beach. To keep things comfortable the house is cooled with central air conditioning and ceiling fans in each room. Completing the island escape, each room is painted in bright Caribbean colors and furnished to match. The grounds feature a large multi-level deck and a grilling patio with a built-in charcoal grill, perfect for a relaxing dinner with family.

The house sits on over half an acre of land in the peaceful Rum Point area of Cayman Kai where white sand extends to a crystal clear soft? sea. Located away from the crowded and touristy Seven-mile beach area, yet within walking distance of excellent beachfront restaurants and bars, you'll be able to enjoy a relaxed barbeque on your own beach or a nice meal out with locals.

Either in your own 'backyard' or a short-drive away, you will be able to enjoy all of the islands best activities including snorkeling, diving, sunbathing, water-skiing, jet skiing, waverunning, boating, fishing, biking, cruises to Sting Ray City and Seven mile beach, reading, relaxing, and of course lazy naps on the beach.

Come to Conquered Fame and escape to a peaceful and relaxed island existence...

Comment from a recent guest:

'We have now made it home from Conquered Fame, and of course, we are missing it, and all of Grand Cayman already. Your home worked our for our families, perfect in every way. We enjoyed the location, the beach, the water, and all the amenities of the house. We found no better snorkeling on the island than right out the back door, and no more beautiful scenery for pictures, than right off the back deck. Spending our last few hours gazing over the ocean, towards the reef really captured our hearts, and made a lasting impression on all of us. We truly fell in love with the island. Thanks for opening your home for us, and sharing such a wonderful spot.

Please feel free to use us for any rental inquiries you have, we would be happy to share our experiences with others!' ~ John Bouregy, July 26, 2010

About The Owner

The first time we set foot on Grand Cayman, we fell in love with the place. We kept coming back so often, we decided we had to make our vacation destination Cayman Kai every year and so we found the perfect house on the water. We have 4 children and live in Richmond, VA, but come back to the Cayman's at least twice per year. Our Cayman home away from home has become my family's and my sisters' family's place to spend the holidays and escape the mid-winter blues.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

Why The Owner chose Grand Cayman

We chose Cayman Kai and the area around Rum Point because of its quiet peacefulness. It is worlds away from the busy tourist areas around 7 mile beach and the cruise ship ports. The properties in the area are all single family houses and there are no big resorts which keeps everything nice and relaxed. Being within walking distance to Rum Point allows us to spend time on both the lagoon beach at Rum Point as well as the ocean beach at our house. In addition, with the beach bar and restaurant at Rum Point, if we don't feel like cooking we can just walk over there and grab a bite to eat.

What makes this villa unique

While at the house, we enjoy all the comforts of home. We cook most of our meals either in the kitchen or grill up steak and chicken in the outdoor barbecue pit. With the washer and dryer we can keep all the kids in clean clothes and not have to bring back suitcases full of laundry. Because the beach is right off the back deck, we can enjoy relaxing in the chairs while our children play on the sand and in the water.

My family of 6 (kids ages 8 thru 19) stayed in this charming beach home over New Years. The very comfortable home is beautifully decorated in cheerful colors and comes with everything needed. We spent many days at Rum Point beach, a short distance from the house beacause it has wonderful food (and even better drinks) and activities for all ages. The owners of the home were very pleasant and helpful in planning our family trip. I highly recommend vacationing at Conquered fame

Cayman Stay

  • 3 of 5

Wanted to add my two cents as I realize there have been no reviews for quite a long time. While we enjoyed our stay in Conquered Fame and getting to explore Grand Cayman, this side of the island was apparently experiencing some unusual beach conditions (according to someone we met on the island) while we were there, to no fault of the owners of course. It was very windy, the waters were very choppy, and the debris of seaweed on the beach on this side was overwhelming. That said, the walk from the villa to Rum Point, while not long, was actually unpleasant. Between the excessive seaweed debris, the volume of actual garbage washed up from the ocean that lay before us, and the very rocky conditions, we actually preferred walking in the street or driving. While the seaweed debris seemed excessive at Rum Point too, they had employees there cleaning it up, so spending the day at Rum Point was still quite enjoyable. 4 members of my family took the challenge to snorkel from the villa to Rum Point. It was a very difficult swim, even though the tides helped you along. (They said the snorkeling was average here- much better snorkeling was found in Cemetary Beach, Governor's Beach and Spotts Beach.) Very difficult to give up before you get to Rum Point tho b/c you can't really exit the water once you've passed the villa because of the excessive coral and rocky exit. Note- only strong swimmers should try this!

The villa itself was clean, but clearly out-dated. The owner's "closet" is just a mess of supplies pushed carelessly in the back of the master bedroom closet, with nothing blocking the view, nor access. Even with access to the "owners closet", there were no portable chairs to carry with us to other beaches, nor a cooler. The old, rusty, loud washer & dryer are behind a curtain in another bedroom- not very attractive either. Bathrooms are older.There were some issues accessing the villa when we arrived, and then with a toilet that was leaking, both issues were resolved by the on-island property manager.

I was surprised by other reviews indicating that this villa has a good beach front for young children to play. In actuality, there is a small, sandy beachfront but only a rocky entry to the water in front of the villa. You need to walk about 75-100 yards away from the house to enter the water safely without huge rocks/coral in your way. And even there you need flippers or water shoes to enter. TV has spotty coverage. Wifi worked great, thankfully.

Great Family Oriented Beach Front Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently traveled to Grand Cayman and had the pleasure of staying at Conquered Fame on Rum Point. If you've been to Grand Cayman before but never spent time on Rum Point, it is an absolute must! Away from the hustle of 7-mile beach, it is super laid back and has far superior snorkeling right off the beach. We had 7 adults traveling along with my 2-1/2 yr old son. Conquered Fame could not have been better suited to the group of us. Short of an IPOD dock, the house has all of the amenities that we needed for a relaxing beach getaway, including a washer/dryer. The beautifully landscaped entry to the house is so welcoming after a 7 hour trip from New York with a toddler. The entire north wall is glass so has excellent exposure and views of the sunrise each morning. The house is on the beach, and, while it can be pretty windy on the north side, is excellent for swimming. The wind actually makes the sun a little more bearable midday letting us lay out or play our own version of beach bocce (with coconuts). The barrier reef is about 100 yards off the beach and is phenomenal for snorkeling. We were able to see all sorts of fish, lobsters, rays and even a sea turtle right off the house beach! The restaurants in the area, are all true to island form, serving great seafood including conch in all forms (the lionfish ceviche at Tukka on the east end is incredible!). Rum point does a BBQ every Tuesday that should not be missed as well. All of the water related activities have departures directly from Rum Point, which, being walking distance from Conquered Fame, was extremely convenient. We did the bio luminescence kayak tour from Kaibo yacht club right up the road which was absolutely amazing and a must do!

TJ and Therese have such a fantastic home in Grand Cayman. I can't picture staying anywhere else on any future visits to the island. Thank you both for facilitating a fantastic vacation for all of us.

Best,

Jon and family.

Caribbean Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we pulled into the driveway, we knew we picked the right place to stay. Inside the house had a nice open layout with great views throughout the back. Snorkeling, swimming, sun bathing, all in your own "private" beach. In the evening, we had front row seats to the meteor shower. For other activities, Rum Point is close by, offering rental kayaks, paddle boards and wave runners.

Definitely, a much more relaxed and quiet place to be than Seven Mile beach. The only regret is not getting to stay longer. Owner is great to work with and Conquered Fame is highly recommended. Thanks for sharing your home T.J.

Spring Break in the Caymans

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Conquered Fame for Spring Break. The house was exactly as the pictures show. Very clean and very open. Perfect views of the water and the reef. Agree with others that the snorkeling out the back door was some of the best on the island. Saw Rays (adult and young), lion fish, a green moray eel and fish of every descripion within sight of the house. Rum Point and Cayman Kai are both great and only minutes away. My son had fun knocking down coconuts and opening them for us for breakfast each day. This home is perfect for families.

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

What a place to relax and enjoy the Carribean. My husband Joe and I went with another couple in December. We were looking for a low key quiet vacation and we found it at Conquered Fame. The snorkeling was great and the weather perfect. The house was cozy and had everything we needed. I can see it would also be a great place for family vacations. The house is roomy and the beach is right outside. It was a great stay.
