New to our Luxury Villa Portfolio
(All Guests Must Be 10 or Older | Infants Under 2 Welcome)

Kai-yak Cove is a newly-built luxury Caribbean-style villa in the tranquil resort neighborhood of Cayman Kai. Guests will enjoy many unique features, including a wrap-around veranda, a pool with a heated spa, an outdoor kitchen, and a private dock with a gazebo. The quality of the build, decor, and furnishings is first-class. The villa was recently featured on the front cover of a local home and garden magazine.

The sky blue exterior and crisp, white trim hint at the level of decor within. Wall coverings, furniture, and plantation shutters all evoke a resort-casual, beach cottage feel. With all the decor, amenities, and privacy, many of our guests do not venture far from the villa during their stay. Kai-Yak Cove has plenty of quiet areas for reading, relaxing, or streaming your favorite content.

The first-floor den is equipped with a large SmartTV and Sonos soundbar and a plush sectional sofa. The den connects to a full bathroom that also serves as the lower-level powder room. Pocket doors and plantation shutters add privacy and shade for watching the big game or movie. A second media room with SmartTV and Sonos on the second floor offers walk-out access to a waterfront balcony.

The big draw to the great room is a wall of sliding glass that affords a full view of the pool, beach, and quiet cove waters. Outside, a generously spaced veranda allows for shaded lounging/dining whilst enjoying the sea breeze and views. 

The gourmet kitchen is a vacationing chef's dream. Kitchen-Aid appliances include a built-in main fridge and freezer, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a wall oven, a microwave, and a warming drawer that doubles as a slow cooker. Small appliances and a drip coffee maker are also provided. 

The villa's private pool includes an elevated spa, plus a sun shelf for a ledge lounger. Spa heat is an optional add-on $75/day charge, year-round. 

An outdoor kitchen cabana with a propane grill, icemaker, and beverage fridge is perfect for island cookouts under the stars. 

A sandy beachfront leads down to the villa's dock and gazebo. The cove is not ideal for swimming due to the soft bottom, however, there is beach access to the barefoot white sand beach directly across the street, as well as closer to Rum Point.

The villa offers one bedroom suite on the first floor and three bedrooms on the second floor.

Beach Notes

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The cove-front homes in Cayman Kai offer serene waters for docking a rental boat, charter boat pick-up and drop-off, plus kayaking or paddle boarding with no waves.  

The cove is locally referred to as Bioluminescent Bay, one of the few throughout the world and one of the island's most popular night-time tourist attractions. On a moonless night, guests can launch kayaks off the villa's dock for a bio-tour of the glowing phytoplankton—an experience not to be missed!

You get the best of both worlds at this home: a backyard facing the cove with private pool and boat dock, plus barefoot white-sand swimming across the street using the public right-of-way beach access.

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically "public", in that you can swim anywhere along the coast, even behind the Ritz-Carlton! 

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, water sports, restaurants, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games.

Also nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club featuring a fine dining restaurant, a casual beach bar and grill, and a marina. Ferry service to Camana Bay departs from the Kaibo Marina, perfect for day trips to Seven Mile Beach!

Overall, Cayman Kai is a fabulous neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas and sweeping tropical views. 

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Crown owns up to the high water mark.

The shoreline quality behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website due to shifting tides and weather patterns. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally.

Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency over the years during the summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation.

We try our best to work around mother nature.

Guest Reviews of Kai-Yak Cove

Rum Point , Grand Cayman

5 out of 5 stars based on 6 user reviews

Beautiful holiday getaway

Review by Darcy on 12/03/2023

We selected this home based on the size (there were 7 of us), quiet location, private pool and beach, and access to a local Beach Club. The villa did not disappoint! It was new, very clean and was beautifully appointed with furnishings. The beds and linens were comfortable and the kitchen included everything we needed to cook meals. The huge ice maker and extra refrigerator outside by the pool was perfect for drinks. Jennifer was a great host providing lots of information on the house before we arrived so we were prepared. She was very communicative and easy to reach during our stay when we had questions or needed suggestions on places to go. One thing I would mention is the bay (where the house sits) has a lot of sea grass and the bottom isnt sandy so less desireable to swim in, but Rum Point Beach Club is a 5 min walk down the street and offers food, drinks, chairs, umbrellas and a nice swimming area with beautiful clear water. Overall our vacation was fantastic, we all loved kai-Yak Cove and we cant wait to return!

Fabulous and Stunning

The listing for Kai-Yak Cove makes you want to come to check it out. The house itself makes you want to stay and return! This was our first trip to Grand Cayman. We spent 9 days on the quiet side of the island and loved it. The house is well appointed, meticulously well thought out, and very impressive. We loved the pool, especially in the shade of the afternoon, and all the outdoor space. Inside was extremely comfortable. You\'re steps away from the bioluminescence bay and a mile away from Star Fish Point. Be sure to check out the options for Sting Ray City and all the various outdoors activities. The owner was great to work with and was in contact early regarding check-in and was nice enough to make several helpful suggestions. You\'ll get lost in reading the reviews and debating between houses, but this one is a no-brainer!

Impeccable traditional Caymanian villa!

This is my first review - ever - and first house rental, ever. My family of three spent a week at Kai-Yak Cove, our first time to the Caribbean. We're very particular about the details anywhere we stay. You simply will not believe the expert craftsmanship of this new, traditional Caymanian villa. It's not just that the property manager (who was very attentive and thoughtful) thought of everything, but is a multi-generation Caymanian who is clearly passionate about this home and doing things right. Yes, it's not on the strip, but rather in the serene and beautiful area of Cayman Kai. The outdoor kitchen/grill was fantastic, we ate at Kaibo a couple nights (literally about a mile from the house), the pool was immaculate, and the wrap around veranda was peaceful. Hurley's delivered twice - excellent option since it's 30 minute drive (good organic section too) and a local grocery store had essentials and decent wine/liquor. The Crystal Caves and a private boat charter (picked us up on our private pier) were the highlights and musts...and about all we did other than enjoy this wonderful home. What a great experience - thank you!
Manager Response:

Thank you for your kind words. We hope you can come back another time soon!

This immaculate home is located away from the hustle and bustle of the busy life, right on the bioluminescence bay (magic!). The photos of the home are beautiful, but be prepare to be even more dazzled once you arrive and settle in. The views and pool/spa make it so you truly don\'t want to leave home. The host was very responsive, provided helpful tips, and written instructions/directions throughout the home. I recommend taking advantage of a private chef/cook so you can enjoy dinner at home, visiting the nearby Crystal Caves, taking a private boat charter (right from the dock of the house) to Stingray city/snorkeling/mangroves, or take a fishing charter from nearby the Kaibo dock. Overall, my friends and family and I had a perfect getaway.

Exeeded expectations!

Pictures do not do this Villa justice. It is decorated beautifully! It\'s like coming home. The location is beautiful and so peaceful, morning coffee on the patio does not get any better! Absolutely spotless! The owner was wonderful and communicated very early on about the arrival procedures. She even came on Saturday so we could have groceries delivered to the house before we arrived. She was also in contact with us during the week to see if we needed anything. We used Silver Thatch for kayak rentals that were delivered to the Villa, and also a boat to take us snorkeling with the stingrays. Highly recommend stingray island! Very cool! The Villa location was very convenient for the boat to pick up, they were able to get us right on the villa dock. Captain Warren was wonderful!!! We had dinner at Kaibo Beach nearby which was very enjoyable, right on the beach. The only negative was that we had to leave. lol

This new home in the best part of Cayman is a gem for even the most discerning traveler. Pristine inside, beautiful decor, relaxing pool, gorgeous sunrise views over the lagoon. You can be very active or just chill. Every need has been considered for renters, and the owners’ love and care for the home is evident. Kai-Yak Cove is a treasure in fabulous Cayman Kai
