"My husband and I found the perfect spot for a quiet place to unwind from our busy family and work lives back home. The villa is part of a complex of villas at the end of Cayman Kai, a spit of land off of Rum Point, along a neighborhood road of private homes. All of the villas are free standing (not attached to the others) and Unit 1 was 30 steps from door to water's edge! The interior was attractive, bright, updated, and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the indoor/outdoor feel with the large retracting glass doors both upstairs and down. We ate all of our meals on the screened in porch, made use of the two island bikes provided to poke around the neighborhood, used one of the two kayaks to explore the shoreline, and enjoyed having our own laundry facilities. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and we had plenty of space for our belongings. The beach was tidy and had plenty of beach furniture. We stayed the week before Thanksgiving and saw very few people during our stay. The owner was easy to work with answered all of our questions. The key was onsite in a lock box which made our arrival effortless.
We loved being down the street from Star Fish Point, which at best guess seems to be a bit of land once in the beginning stages of development, but long since left for people to wander along and enjoy the red starfish dotting the shallow waters. We also loved the setting of Kaibo, also just across the street from the other end of the villa complex. Kaibo (along with condos) is a two-part restaurant. Downstairs you can sit at picnic tables on the beach and order from a relaxed menu or sit at the open air bar under the upstairs overhang. Upstairs, enjoy a beautifully appointed fine dining restaurant that was our favorite meal during our stay. We also biked to Rum Point (5 minute bike ride), which has a small public beach feel with a collection of buildings housing a water sports shop, a bar/beach restaurant, a fine dining restaurant, and gift shop. Again, picnic tables in the sand, hammocks, beach chairs, beach volleyball, and a swim area. Trips to Stingray City can be booked and taken from the dock here.
If you are looking for a very quiet spot to unwind without a lot of tourist action, this is a perfect spot. Do keep in mind that the nearest full grocery store is 35 minutes away, the airport is 45 minutes away, and most of the "activity" is along 7 mile beach 45+ minutes away. A car was a must for us. We loved this spot!"
