We travelled to Grand Cayman, Rum Point in late May 2016. We travelled with another family that also stayed in an Island House property (#21 Mango Kai & #17 Kai Kotch). We were a party of 9 - with 4 teenagers and a 10 year old. We normally vacation at all-inclusive resorts, and we were a bit worried that the... More

If you are coming to Rum Point and looking for a place to stay, then Kai Time (#14) is the place to stay. It is truly wonderful. If you are deciding *whether* to come to Rum Point, read the bottom of the review. We stayed in “Kai Time” (#14) for 10 days and it was amazing. The house is the... More

This was one of the best Christmas trips we have taken. When we arrived at Kai Kotch, we found a Christmas card and a welcome gift waiting for us. The house and location were great. We really enjoyed our neighbors in our little community. We met several at our pool... from Michigan....New York... Texas Turns out our neighbors from Texas...... More

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

You will find it fully equipped for all your requirements the only things to pick up coming from the airport are groceries and drinks.

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.
