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 calm serene water for docking a rental boat, permitting charter boat pick-up, or just safe shallow swimming for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove as nearby Rum Point is too nice by comparison--the water is shallow with a softer bottom and no reef for marine life. 

You get the best of both worlds at Kaiku: a private backyard pool with a spa, boat dock access, plus proximity to the Rum Point Club. There is usually little breeze here to speak of--many homes in Cayman Kai offer a screened porch to keep flying bugs and insects at bay.

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, a restaurant bar, grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar, and marina. Overall, the area is a great neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east we have 2 large resorts (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, a liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and the Italian Kitchen restaurant. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, oceanfront pools, and bar service.

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.

Extraordinary on All Levels at Kaiku Villa

Review by Susann on 04/24/2024
5 out of 5
I and the group of us could not say enough great things about our stay at Kaiku. The booking process was easy and working with Scott and staff was easy and clear. Our property manager Judy Ebanks was readily available with a smile and so helpful for all our needs. the property is gorgeous and the bay is peaceful and beautiful. The rooms and living space, including the guesthouse were perfect for our gathering and fun and needs. Very peaceful. The pool was the perfect temperature and clean. Access to the kayaks and swimming was a treat. We had a Catamaran excursion that they connected us to that came right to our dock for pick up. We will never forget the snorkeling, the sting ray joy and being in the beautiful water. Warren and Clayton were excellent at their job. Kiabo Barbecue was a blast and the Rum Point Burgers were one of the best I have ever had. i could go on. Bottom line - yes, we are returning next year!!

Outstanding Experience- Great Manager

This Villa is outstanding. Quiet but located right on the water. House and staff exceeded our expectations

Kaiku Was Spectacular!

Review by Lenny on 06/16/2022
5 out of 5
I needed a large villa to house my extended family of 17 for a special trip to Cayman. My search got me to Kaiku and it was everything we needed and more. Located in the Rum Point area it was perfect for us. Nice beach and calm waters of the luminescence bay (quite spectacular), and quiet with no one else seemingly around us..., outdoor kitchen with fridge and ice-maker right there. The staff with Grand Cayman Villas went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were so kind in assisting us and answering any questions we had. The actual villa was better than the pictures made it appear. I can highly recommend Kaiku for you!

Amazing birthday staycation at Kaiku!

Review by Dylan on 05/03/2022
5 out of 5
Our group of 12 stayed at Kaiku for an annual joint-birthday celebration. The house and guest house provided more than enough space for all of us, and the outside / pool area was our favourite place to hang during the day. The kitchen is open and well equipped with ample storage and refrigeration, which was perfect as we cooked at the house every day. Our guests also enjoyed the kayaks, hammocks and the bioluminescence in the water at night. All in all this was the perfect location for our getaway and we can't wait to return!

Beautiful Kaiku

Grand Cayman Villas really helped us find another booking after our first one fell through. Great customer service. Kaiku is a Great Villa.

Perfect Home and Location

Review by N.P. on 09/25/2019
5 out of 5
We rented Kaiku in August after an exhaustive search for the right property. With kids we wanted a safe, quiet location close enough to activities and restaurants, Kaiku was the perfect choice for our family. Spacious, well-maintained home, comfortable bedding, walks to Rum Point, kaibo, Starfish Point. Kayaking and paddleboarding. We even rented jet skis for a couple days. Thank you Grand Cayman Villas for your help in planning. Everything was perfect. We will cherish our memories of our time at Kaiku forever. We hope to come back soon. Highly recommended for everyone!

My Favorite Vacation

Review by Sharon on 12/13/2018
5 out of 5
Absolutely loved this house. From the second you arrive, it feels like paradise. I have never been to a foreign country and felt so at home! It was perfect. We really enjoyed the aesthetic of the house and just how beautiful it is. Spent most days sitting by the pool or paddle boarding around the inlet. I highly recommend having someone cook for you during your stay. They chef was incredible and even my picky husband enjoyed the food. I loved drinking my morning coffee and strolling through the garden that surrounds the house. We had the BEST weather while we were there, nothing but sunshine. Decided to leave the kids at home this trip and brought a few friends with us. They did NOT want to leave when we were starting to pack the day of our arrival. This trip was truly special and I will cherish it and this house. We will be back!!

Your Own Paradise

Review by Annabelle on 12/13/2018

Kaiku was the perfect spot for our group of 10! When we arrived and drove through the gates it was like we were arriving to our own private sanctuary on the island. There is the most beautiful garden that surrounds the house that our little ones loved play hide n\' seek in. We had our own private dock that the kids could paddle board and kayak around and the water was very calm. Everyone was able to have their own room and it was nice to have a nursery for my niece. We absolutely love the house and loved exploring the area. We went out one morning on a snorkel charter with George and it was the best experience of the whole trip! We got to swim with the stingrays. Our favorite restaurants were Tukka and The Lighthouse. Thank you for all of the memories and sharing your beautiful home with us!

Perfect Home

Review by The Hendrick\'s on 12/12/2018
5 out of 5
We loved our family vacation to Kaiku. The home is spacious and modern. The driveway is pretty special. It\'s covered on each side by tropical landscaping that is extremely well kept. It makes the house stand out gorgeously. I recommend hiring a charter for Stingray City. That was the kids favorite part of the whole trip. The adults in our group used the kayaks and paddle boards almost everyday. This home is the perfect home for a vacation down to Cayman.

Great Stay

Review by Laken on 12/12/2018

This house is so cute! The layout is very modern and fun. Everyone got their own little section of the house! We got a charter to pick us up right behind the house for a sunset cruise. Other than that, we pretty much spent all our time by the pool. It\'s surrounded by tropical trees and bushes and it makes it very private. We picked up snorkel gear, speakers, and a cooler from Silver Thatch and the process was super easy! We also ventured over to Rum Point Club and had a fun dinner there. For our first trip to Cayman, we had an amazing time! Kaiku is a beautiful villa that was perfect for our friendcation.

We Loved It

Review by Sandra F. on 12/12/2018

We loved staying at Kaiku! The landscaping is gorgeous! My husband is a photographer and he just had a field day with the gorgeous flowers. Daughter-in-law\'s favorite spot was the nursery. It has a little zen garden right off of it too that she needed in between baby screams!! Pool and beach is stunning. Felt like we had a whole resort to ourselves out there! My favorite was having drinks at sunset after dinner. It\'s a nice and private home. We didn\'t want to leave!! Already planning Kaiku round two 🙂

Fantastic Thanksgiving

Review by John on 12/12/2018

Really couldn\'t have been happier. Place was spectacular, and the staff was very attentive. It is the rare case where the pictures are actually understated. The house, beach, pool, guesthouse, and grounds are beautiful. We had 3 families, with age ranges of 18 to 55, and everyone enjoyed the facility. And the location proved convenient as well. For example, we rented a catamaran and got picked up at the harbor a few minutes away.

Church Vacation!

The house was lovely! We had a great time sharing activities, meals, excursions, and relaxation together. We were very comfortable and the view was great. Truly our own paradise. My husband and I will cherish that time with our family, and hope our family enjoyed it as much as we did. God Bless!

Fabulous Family Vacation!

Our family of 15 which consisted of 11 adults, 2 teenage boys and 2 two year old, has a great time. We were there celebrating the 50 birthday of our daughter. The house was better than expected. The pool and beach was a big hit with everyone. The home is furnished beautiful and it was exactly what we needed. Thank you for making our vacation relaxing and fun.
