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.
Why the Owner Chose Bodden Town, Cayman Islands:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
