“NIce House, air conditioning needs work”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2009

We staid in the Barefoot Lagoon Island house for two weeks. Great location and nicely appointed house. When the airconditioner broke in the kids room and they had to sleep in the living room, however, nobody was doing anything about it.We called the property managment company but nobody showed up. I suspect they did not have authority to replace it. In August, AC is important. Other than that it was everything it promised although pricier than identical units in the same complex. The island, we discovered, is slow in summer, offer less than anyone is asking for a booking as its likely you or empty for them.

Stayed August 2008, traveled with family

My husband and I just returned from a week in the Grand Cayman. It was the perfect vacation. We stayed at The Pools in Kai. It was private and secluded, right on the water and we even had our private screened-in lanai w/ our own pool. I rented through carribeanway.com. We had sun every day even though this is supposed to be the rainy season. We did go to Georgetown for one day and night but could not wait to get back to the seclusion of our villa. We ate at the Kaibo Yacht Club twice. Both times were excellent. It truly was the best vacation. I have nothing negative to say. I cannot wait to return.

Barefoot Lagoon Island was everything shown on its web site and more.
The house was very well decorated and very comfortable. THe area was the best on Grand Cayman. We had our own pool and then right out the front door was the famous "Rum Point Beach. The amenities offer like the use of the kayak, snorkeling equipment, bicycles and safety equipment for the kids were more than we expected. It saved us alot of money not having to buy them. THe location in Cayman Kai, Rum Point is by far the best location of the Island but there is still so much to do. Great resturants. Will we be back.
