Welcome to Kailypso, a 3-bedroom beachfront villa in Cayman Kai located on Bio Bay.

Measuring over 2,800 square feet with spectacular outdoor spaces, cozy interiors, and a secluded beach, this popular villa is the perfect destination for family vacations and group getaways.

Nestled among tall palm trees and lush tropical plants, Kailypso’s waterfront pool and patio create a tropical oasis. Plenty of loungers dot the pool deck for sunbathers to kick back and work on their tans.

After hours under the sun, cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool or seek shade on the screened-in porch. A concrete pathway leads you down from the pool deck onto a soft sandy beach with a private boat dock. Beach lovers will love this slice of paradise. 

Take full advantage of the villa's private dock by booking a charter to Stingray City. Request to be picked up and dropped off right on your dock for the ultimate charter experience! 

Two single kayaks are provided during your stay. During the day, launch from the dock and explore the calm surrounding waters of Cayman Kai.

Then, on moonless nights, take the kayaks out and watch the water glow with light as you paddle. Bio Bay is one of the few bioluminescent bays in the world making it an unforgettable experience.

Kailypso’s three bedrooms include a primary suite with an ensuite bathroom and two additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom between them.

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, private charter pick-up if the villa has a dock, or just safe shallow water along the edge swimming for little children. Adults won’t swim in the cove—Rum Point is too nice by comparison—the water is shallow and has a softer bottom and there is no reef here for fish life...but we do see the occasional turtle, eagle ray, or tarpon swim by in the shallows!

Another benefit is that we rarely get any seaweed in the cove so the beaches stay cleaner than the oceanfront beaches.

The beaches are flat white barefoot sand. The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club within a short walk that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many water sports, a restaurant and bar, gift shop and pick-up beach volleyball games.  Also nearby is the Kaibo, a beachfront restaurant, bar, and marina.

Lastly, about 20 minutes east there are 2 large resorts--Morritt's and The Reef--that offer manicured beaches, plus restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, the Italian Kitchen Restaurant. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet ski rentals, 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. THis location is VERY rarely affected.

We try our best to work around mother nature.

Excellent for walking to great restaurants and beaches. Ferry to Camana bay is close by and convenient. Back yard and pool are perfect for lazy days in the sun.

Kailypso is in a fantastic location! We came to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation and the location is perfect for a mix of great snorkeling access, super good restaurants and 2 beach clubs which were perfect for going out. The backyard/bio bay access were excellent for sunning and kayaking! Easy ferry ride to Caymana bay. The house was a perfect setup for a family trip!!

Beautiful Home and Grounds

Such a beautiful home and grounds. We had a blast in the pool and at the beach. Saw lots of fun things in the bay including a small nurse shark; and having Bioluminescent Bay as our backyard was a bonus! The house was the perfect setup for our group of six. We highly recommend this home for your vacay.

The Best!!

We had an awesome time staying at the Kailypso. The view of the bay could of been a picture on a postcard. The kids enjoyed using the Kayaks on the Bay and laying out by the pool. It was nice having the gas grill, as we cooked out almost every night. Loved our stay and hope to visit again in the future.

Fantastic

Great Villa, beautiful and quiet location


         
Review by Ian on 01/20/2023
5 out of 5
We stayed at Villa Kailypso over Christmas and New Year 2023. The Villa was great, with a fantastic beach front aspect. From the reviews we read we had expected a lot and the Villa didn\'t disappoint! You definitely need a car, we toured most of the island and this confirmed that we had chosen the best area for our needs. Relaxed and quiet location. The walkable dining options were limited but this will improve when Rum Point is fully open in summer 2023. Grand Cayman Villa staff were helpful before and during stay, cleaning appointment was missed but quickly resolved.

Bioluminescence!!!


         
Review by Becky on 12/12/2022
5 out of 5
We chose this property to experience the bioluminescence and be away from the crowds. The bioluminescence did not disappoint! It is incredible to kayak and see it. We did this several nights. It is much better than taking an excursion and only seeing it once. We rented a car so we could go to several beaches and go into Georgetown but we stayed mostly at the property because it was everything we needed to relax and have a great stay. The pool was a nice touch to cool off when in the sun. The property manager answered any requests quickly. The only downside was Rum Point is closed for renovations until April.

Magical

We had a wonderful stay at the Kailypso. The house was clean and comfortable. We ate every night in the screen porch. Mornings, we would go walk or run in the neighborhood. Kayaking during the day in the Bay and there is a ton of beautiful starfish right off the bay. Although Rum Point restaurant was closed for renovation, the Snorkeling was great. Bioluminescence at night was magical. We will miss this place very much.

Family vacation

Property is acceptable with the pool being a plus. Well stocked with the basic necessities of a rental. Location is a little challenging since it is a solid 45 minutes driving from the busy part of the island. So no car, no fun! Property manager was very good helping in more than one occasion. However the service company attached to this property was utterly useless. No interest in helping with anything despite the fact that we were told that it was their job! Overall a good stay-on the pricey side but again this is 2022!!

It is as beautiful as the picture! Clean beach right on the bio bay. We paddled kayaks each evening. I swam laps in the bay and ran in the mornings around the quiet neighborhood. Kayak to starfish point. Did many excursions within walking distance to Kaibo marina. It was perfect for our family of six (3 adult kids and 1 teenager). Highly recommend!

Our fourth Visit


         
Review by Fritz on 05/10/2022

Full disclosure I am in the Hotel business as a Hotel Operator and Developer, so when my wife and I get to travel with and hopefully without kids, we prefer to stay in homes as I'm in hotels every day. I am also keenly aware of the type of service you receive when booking, we always book through rental agencies because of incredible service compared to Air BnB or VRBO. We booked our fourth Trip Kailypso in Spring of 2019, and due to covid we were finally able to return in 2022, which was too long as Kailypso has become our "southern cabin." We just wrapped up our fourth visit to this charming private home and it was as good as it's ever been. This is the perfect place for a couple or small family. Private, calm waters, out of the wind and walking distance to everything you need. We spend our days at the pool or Rum Point Club, bone fishing in the mornings and this year, much to our pleasure at the new Silverthatch service center. This new feature from Silverthatch made our trip, access to a gym, concierge service, and free rentals of snorkel gear, blue tooth speaker, coolers made this destination even better. I hope to return multiple times every year to this location. Feel free to reach out to myself with any personal questions you may have or references. fritz.heller@nmhmhotels.com

Our small party of four really enjoyed our time at Kailypso, it was a shame that the two nearby restaurants etc (Rum Point and Yacht Club) were closed but that cannot detract from the location or the facilities of Kailypso. We had one small issue with water temperature at one shower, but this was promptly dealt with. We have twice previously rented through GCV&C and following this very positive experience would have no hesitation in doing so again or recommending their services to one and all.

Awesome stay

We spent a week\'s staycation at Kailypso and had a relaxing time. The villa is well laid out and everything was clean and tidy. We enjoyed early morning walks along the main road followed by leisurely dips in the pool followed by our morning coffee on the extensive pool deck overlooking the lagoon. Lots of deck furniture let us always find a shady spot. We were joined most afternoons by a pair of friendly Caribbean Whistling ducks who would take bread from our fingers. We used the kayaks to explore the bio-luminescent lagoon right off the dock. Local restaurants included Over The Edge for breakfasts and the Italian Kitchen for sit in or delivery. Kaibo and Rum Point restaurants are closed at this time of year so the well appointed kitchen was put to good use. Recommended 🙂

We unfortunately could not stay due to COVID-19 but the rental company was absolutely wonderful. They had great communication even before the airport shut down. Then they reached out to everyone as soon as the airport closed. They offered full refunds and did so in a timely fashion. I highly recommend this rental company.

Well equipped and beautiful home on the beach of bioluminescent bay! The house was perfect for us (6) with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, comfortable living room and well equipped kitchen. The pool area was awesome and we kayaked every day. Location was perfect for us- we explored the area by the bay and especially loved Kaibo! An amazing restaurant within walking distance! Would go back!

This was a wonderful home to stay in. Very quiet area. The bay is awesome. We were checking in late and the manager even got us some basic grocery supplies for the morning so we had essentials. We hope to go back some day!

Kailypso was a wonderful home for our family of 6. We spent every day between Kailypso, Rum Point and starfis point. Safe area, no traffic, you can walk everywhere. We did take the Ferry over to 7 Mile Beach and recommend that for a morning/afternoon. Restaurants in the north side were wonderful! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home! Fran M.

Our family stayed at Kailypso over spring break. We looked at many homes in the Cayman Kai / Rum Point area before deciding on Kailypso. Wonderfully well-maintained home, great location. Paddleboarding off the beach every day. Walks to Rum Point, starfish point and Kaibo. Grand Cayman Villas was prompt with responses and helped us plan a memorable vacation. We recommend Kailypso to all ages! Jus a fantastic home. We hope to return another time!

Two couples, friends forever, travel to a destination every year. This year we picked Grand Cayman. Honestly can not believe we have not been here before and we will come again! Peaceful, quiet, safe, lots of activities! Kailypso was a wonderful home. Larger than what the pictures suggest. Rarely do you find a home the is better in person than the photos online - Kailypso is one such home! Magical location, we walked, swam, rented bikes/kayaks and paddle boards. We will book this home next spring as well!

Our family is one of those with multiple June birthdays. We celebrated at Kailypso. Amazing home, on a peaceful bay, short, safe walks to Rum Point and Kaibo. Fantastic food and fun activities at both locations. Make sure you go out to the stingray sandbar with Joe at Silver Thatch Charters! Courteous, knowledgeable and just a fun guy! If we could give this home 6 stars, we would!

Wonderful location and home. Scott at Grand Cayman Villas helped us decide on Kailypso after we looked at 4 options. We are happy with the choice we mage. Near restaurants, snorkeling, activities. Nice beach, long walks, rented bikes. Pick this home - you will not be disappointed.

This marks out third time to Grand Cayman and third different property. We love the Cayman Kai and Rum Point area. Kailypso is our favorite so far and we will visit again.

We have had the best vacation! We are all wishing we could stay longer! We loved the house and being near Rum Point and Kaibo is the perfect location. We rented a car and drove all over the island, we even went to Seven Mile beach for the day and it made us realize we love being in Cayman Kai! The house is so nice with the pool and being right on the Bio Bay, it was perfect for us. We can\'t wait to come back!

Every aspect of Kailypso was special for our family. Third time on island - first time at Kailypso. The other homes we stayed in were very nice, but Kailypso was a notch above and our favorite. The kids loved the deck and pool, kayaking and paddle boards. We rented jet skiis for one day as well. The home is clean and up to date. Nice bedrooms, Comfortable beds. Plenty of room to spread out. We will be back.

Great memories from our time at Kailypso. We will be returning here. Great location, home, walks to Rum Point and Kaibo. Starfish Point is a must. Bio Bay. Snorkel charter to Stingray City is a must and they will pick you up at Kailypso - ask for Joe at Silver Thatch Watersports.

We can not say enough positives about Kailypso. Would give the home a 6 star if that was an option! Great location and views. Safe. No seaweed! The Bio Bay is stunning at night time! Rum Point was a favorite daytime spot, as well as lunch!

Thanks for the use of your beautiful home, It was perfect for our vacation and checked off all the boxes. We appreciated the location as well as the amenities and made use of them daily. We had an small issue with a ceiling fan but it was addressed quite quickly and resolved easily thanks to Judy\'s help. We would highly recommend this home and would go back again in a heartbeat!

Great House, Great Location for Young Families

We were 4 Adults and 3 kids and found Kailypso very comfortable. The pool was great and even better were the kayaks. We paddled around the bay day and night and very much enjoyed the bioluminescence! We enjoyed kayaking out to the beach at the bay entrance and snorkling. Starfish Point is a 5 min drive and was another highlight of our trip. Rum Point was even closer and we took advantage of the restaurant and the Red Sail watersports. The kitchen was fully loaded with all the cookware we needed and we just had to supply the charcoal for the bbq grill. We would definitely recommend this to other families looking for a peaceful vacation!
