Beautiful, Immaculate, well-equipped and maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented a house for a week, every year for the past 8+ years. (Most recently Dominican, Turks and Caicos, Cozumel, Hawaii, etc) Your property is one of the most immaculate, thoughtfully laid out, well-equipped and maintained, places in which we have stayed. The ocean view was beautiful! The screened-in porches allowed us to enjoy the sunset and dining al fresco without concerns of mosquitoes or other bugs. The dining table was large enough to comfortably fit all 12 of us. The common room A/C allowed us more time together instead of retreating to our rooms mid day to cool off. And the management company, was pleasant, responsive and professional. We went scuba diving, snorkeling, boat to stingray city and many of these outings were conveniently located at Rum Point, a walk or one minute drive away. We visited Spotts Beach and saw 6 sea turtles. A truly wonderful vacation with something for everyone!

Comfortable, roomy home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house if you are looking to be on the "quieter" side of the island! We enjoyed being able to walk down to Rum Point for quick access to water sports and to get some drinks and a tasty lunch! All thoroughly enjoyed having a private pool, and the kids really enjoyed the kayaks. This property works well for multiple families, because all bedrooms are private with their own bathroom. The only issue we experienced during our stay was the main master suite air conditioner failed. The property manager was VERY responsive and the unit was completely replaced the next day. So, any previous reviews you read about that issue ... should be resolved! We will return to the beautiful island of Grand Cayman!

beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

peaceful, quiet setting, house was fabulous - stocked kitchen with all you could need. Awesome sunsets, pool used each day. Comfy bdrms-private baths. Screened porch used each day, inside furnishings very comfortable. 4 kayaks a plus. only issue, air conditioning not working in upstairs hallway where grand kids were staying...TOO HOT, ended up sleeping in their parents bed. were told part was ordered but never fixed in the 2 woks we were renting. Day 4 the manager bought a floor fan to move the air in hallway. Would def rent again- but need air conditioning fixed. would give a 5 star if air cond. were working. Thnaks you to the owners for sharing your beautiful spot on one of our favorite islands!

From the moment we pulled in the driveway my jaw was on the floor. And it just kept getting better. We stayed in the main house of Moon Kai for about a week with 5 couples. It was more than enough space. Our bedroom (with an en suite full bath) was on the first floor and even with 9 other people in the house you couldn't hear a sound- and I went to bed early every night. From our bedroom there was an attached porch with a view overlooking the white sand into the ocean. It was like our own little piece of heaven. Waking up to that view never got old. Every morning we thought how lucky we were to be there. The common areas were spacious and had the most comfortable furniture and the kitchen was great to cook in. There was plenty of room for all of us to stretch out on the sectional- when we weren't spending time outdoors. The pool area was incredible. The beach pristine. I loved the greenery surrounding the property it made you feel like no one else was around. There were plenty of activities to keep us busy. Some days we would walk down the beach and snorkel our way back, others we would stop at Rum Point for cocktails. We chartered a boat that took us to sting ray city, snorkeling, then to a shoreline that was peppered with giant red star fish. It was the coolest experience ever. I'll never forget this vacation, it's at the top of my list.

Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

The only problem with this fabulous house is that you will not want to leave it to venture around the island. Accommodated two families exceedingly well. Held an intimate wedding under the twin palms steps from the pool deck and thoroughly enjoyed Rosie's catering for our nuptials celebration! Thanks for the Rosie recommendation by Jim and his crew. Wonderful memories made and a plan in the works for the return.

Car: necessary

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The homes on the sound in front of Cayman Kai offer the best beaches as they do not have as much marine and plant life trying to make a home in the shallows. The beaches usually are soft white sand. The homes facing west offer barefoot swimming and shallow calm water.

The sunsets are also wonderful, but the big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many watersports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east we have 2 large resorts (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.
