We rented a condo here for a week. It was on the north side of the island facing the bay. The condo was quite adequate with two bedrooms and two baths and a decent kitchen. Ours was on the second level, with a nice rather large screened in porch/balcony facing the bay. This area is not "touristy" but more residential.... More

What a great place and a great time! We stayed at Cloud Nine (#9) for 6 nights with our 3 girls (8-13) April 2015 and had an awesome time. Cloud Nine is everything advertised! Comfortable, spacious, bikes, Kayaks etc. We used it all. Pool was nice. Bioluminescent Bay was beautiful and a short walk to the beach at Rum Point!... More

I am so in love with this island, but more specifically this location. I traveled the entire island and this is by far the spot to be. You get the best of both worlds. A casual cove to kayak (leads into ocean and great beach area) and Rum Point in your backyard with some of the best snorkeling I have... More

We had an absolutely spectacular time at Starboard Kai. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. Everything you need is available. You cannot get a better location than this on the island with Rum Point in the front and bio lagoon in the back. It is in a quieter location which was right for us. Even talked to some folks...

My husband, daughter, and I just spent 10 relaxing days at Island Sunset #16. The owners, Chris and Lori, were also on the island and brought us board games one day when it was raining. They are so thoughtful and have been great to work with. Bob Wagner was also great to work with and very knowledgeable about the island.... More

Starboard Kai no. 4 has recently been completely renovated and is truly exquisite. You will find it fully equipped for all your requirements the only things to pick up coming from the airport are groceries and drinks. Being a senior the proximity of the pool,ocean,as well as the local restaurants was most attractive. There are also available bikes and ocean... More

We were in Starboard Kai #4. It had just been remodeled and everything was beautiful and of the highest quality. The condo was stocked with soap, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent, which is not always the case when one rents a vacation condo. There are also bikes and kayaks to use. The beach is just steps away from the front... More

Pictures do help but even those can't capture the beauty and comfort of the island homes. Everything is just outside your door in terms of getting closer to nature, from kayaks to snorkel gear to bicycles. The options to grill or use the kitchen make it budget friendly as do the various public beaches throughout Cayman. Planning our next trip... More
