This beach front 1 bedroom condo is located in the stunning upscale vacation home enclave of Cayman Kai on beautiful Grand Cayman. Thanks to our discerning guests, we have recently been designated as a TripAdvisor and FlipKey Top Vacation Rental for Rum Point for a third consecutive year (2013, 2012, 2011). Completely renovated in 2003 with further updates in 2009, this 3rd floor unit is fully equipped with everything you will need for a relaxing vacation. The unit is tastefully decorated with high-end furnishings and the finest linens; all in an understated, yet elegant tropical West Indies motif. Featuring breathtaking ocean views from the fully screened lanai and just steps from both the quiet pool and sandy white beach (fantastic for swimming and snorkeling). Rum and Kai is the perfect size (1,039 sq. ft) for couples or a small family looking for a truly stress-free beach holiday. Within walking distance to a pier, you are just minutes from the famous Sting Ray City and Cayman's renowned North Wall, also making Rum & Kai an ideal base for a Dive vacation. With a king size bed, queen size sofa bed and twin pull out bed, Rum and Kai provides ample sleeping options. The fully equipped kitchen and available BBQ grills makes dining-in as easy as if you are home. But, since you are on vacation there are numerous restaurants located nearby. In the unlikely event the weather forces you inside, you will appreciate the entertainment center featuring a large screen HDTV, Premium Cable, and a hard drive media center with over 250 movies and 700 TV episodes (many in HD). Classic board games and playing cards are also provided. Conveniently next door is the popular Rum Point Club, featuring: restaurants, the Wreck bar, gift shop, water sports and snorkel rentals, dive shop and Sting Ray City trips. The low density complex's amenities include: 1,200 feet of amazing white sandy ocean front beach (not some lagoon) with Palm and Casuarina trees for shade, pool, tennis court, fitness center, on-site management and the most amazing shades of blue the Caribbean can offer. If your ideal beach vacation is to completely decompress by lounging or reading the day away on an empty beach (in the sun or shade); going for a dip or snorkel in the amazing water of the Caribbean; getting up for a bite to eat or to grab a drink; taking short day trips to see the sights; cooling off in the pool; ending the day by watching the sun set from the comfort of your lounge chairs; cooking-in or dining-out; then Rum & Kai at the Retreat may just be the place for you. Far enough from everything you want to leave behind, yet close to everything you could need for a truly relaxing beach holiday. More

Like many tropical islands, the Caymans have their share of polished, glitzy hotels and jewelry shops, high-end restaurants and expensive homes.

About the neighbourhood
Nestled in the northern corner of Grand Cayman is Rum Point. An idyllic little beach with the vacation home enclave of Cayman Kai.

The Retreat at Rum Point is a small, quiet complex of 23 condos located on over 1200 feet of pristine, calm, white, sandy beach. Located in the Cayman Kai/Rum Point area on the North side of the island, The Retreat is away from traffic and the noise of George Town and Seven Mile Beach, but close to quality restaurants and recreational activities. The Retreat has the best beach in Cayman Kai, where you will
