The Kai Life is a fully-renovated home and sits directly between the island's Bioluminescent Bay and the beautiful Rum Point Club. Walk across the street to restaurants, a beach bar, watersports, and a wonderful barefoot swimming beach.

The Island Houses are a resort neighborhood of 18 units at the top of Bio Bay, each with its own 2-story screened lanai.

All units share a large swimming pool with a sundeck. This is resort living, but with fewer footprints and more privacy.

The Kai Life is spacious and airy with elegant comfortable furnishings. The property includes an upgraded fiber internet connection perfect for remote working professionals. 

The ground floor is open concept and includes a living and dining area, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a guest powder room, a reading nook with a sleeper sofa, and a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer.

Our guests tend to spend many hours outside in the lanai. A private charcoal grill and outdoor shower are behind the lanai.

Balconies from each second-floor bedroom open to the screened lanai to allow the house to be opened up during the cooler winter months. Screened windows on the front also allow a breeze to flow through the house when air-conditioning is not needed.

Sleeping Arrangements
(Sleeps 4 adults max., 6 guests total)

  • Primary Suite: upper-level, waterfront, king bed, private screened balcony, ensuite bath with walk-in shower.
  • Guest Suite: upper-level, waterfront, two full-sized beds, private screened balcony, ensuite bath with shower/tub combination.
  • Additional sleeping: queen sleeper sofa in the lower level reading nook.

Access to amazing natural surroundings is at your back door overlooking popular Bioluminescent Bay. This enchanting natural wonder comes alive at night with sparkling aquatic life that can be enjoyed while kayaking at night, or you can hire one of the local tour companies for a guided tour. 

Our guests also easily walk to the Kaibo Marina and restaurants for additional watersports, dining options, a coffee shop, and to catch the Cayman Ferry over to Camana Bay and Seven Mile Beach.

Beach Notes

These nine clusters of 2-story townhomes sit staggered along the water's edge with a shared community freshwater pool overlooking the island's Bioluminescent Bay

Famous for its glowing nighttime waters, Bio Bay is a phenomenon not to be missed especially on moonless nights. Explore at your own pace or book a guided tour with our friends at Cayman Kayaks and Sweet Spot Watersports

While Bio Bay is ideal for kayaking and paddleboarding, it is not ideal for swimming due to its soft muddy bottom. For a barefoot beach experience with great food and tropical drinks, head across the street to the new Rum Point Club.

Beachfront Dining

Fully renovated and reopened to the public, the new Rum Point Club offers a spectacular barefoot beach experience with vibrant snorkeling, watersport rentals, plus a new restaurant, and an open-air beach bar.

Another dining destination in the neighborhood is the Kaibo. A favorite among locals, the Kaibo consists of a coffee shop and two restaurants, a casual beach bar and grill, and a fine dining restaurant. Live music, beach barbecues, and full moon parties are highlights at Kaibo. 

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 seasonally from the images shown due to shifting tides and weather patterns. The next-door beach is always available for your use.

Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed

Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum seasonally. Sargassum is a harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. 

Sargassum RARELY is an issue at the Island Houses.

Excellent location. The unit was perfect for our week vacation

Fabulous stay

After our previous vacation rental property was sold and the new owners did not honor our reservation, we luckily were able to rent The Kai Life which did not disappoint! The front door overlooks the ocean and Rum Point Club and your back door the biobay. As we prefer the quiet side of the island, The Kai Life was a perfect place for our family of four. Given its great location we snorkeled daily along the north and east shores of the island, as well as, kayaked the bay. When we weren\'t in the ocean we made use of the community pool and usually were the only family there. We had excellent communication with the owners, managers, and villa agency. When a small plumbing problem occurred, the manager was there within the hour to fix! The Island House is well appointed with all the necessary kitchen appliances, paper products and beach accessories. The furnishings are tasteful and very comfortable. When we visit the island again, we will surely consider returning to The Kai Life!

Perfect Family Getaway

Perfect sized Villa for 3 adults and 3 children. Bioluminescent Bay right in the back yard for evening Kayak adventures. Great restaurant near by. Excellent fully furnished including Kayaks. The place was ready to go. At one point we just needed an extra set of sheets, sent an email and before we got back the bed was already made for us. Top notch service and amenities.

We Loved This Place

We loved this spot where you could kayak out to the biobay every night. Plenty of space for a family of 4 and silver thatch was outstanding with their service

As advertised!

Perfect for local and visiting families

Our family of 4 had a fantastic week at The Kai Life. The screened in patio that led right to the beach and pool was so convenient. Being across from Rum Point is a huge selling point as the beach is perfect for little ones. We spent mornings at the beach at rum point, afternoons at the pool and evenings kayaking through bioluminescence on the bay. The home was decorated beautifully and practically. The property manager was quick to respond to us when we had an issue with an appliance. She was friendly, helpful and went out of her way to resolve the issue. We have stayed in similar condos like this before in Cayman and this one is the complete package and our favourite! We will be back!

Great Property

Great property, well maintained. Love dealing with Silver Thatch. Definitely coming back

Fabulous stay

We had two couples stay at the Kai Life #7 on Rum Point and it could not have been more perfect. Literally right across the street from Rum Point, the beach and bars/restaurants. Bonus that we had our own beach in the bio bay and a private pool as well. Property was very well maintained and perfect for the 4 of us. Silver Thatch Guest Services was top-notch upon arrival, departure and any inquiries in between. Great information and extremely helpful. Same for Grand Cayman Villas. Every entity involved was great! We love being away from the crowded and congested 7-mile beach area. The kayak was a great bonus to be able to take the bay to Starfish Point or Kaibo for a meal or cocktail. A perfect vacation!

Our family of 4 loved our stay. Great location, near Rum Point. The kids could walk back and forth safely. Loved the food there. The beach BBQ was a special treat. The home is beautiful inside and the furniture and bedding comfy. We recommend The Kai Life and will return another time!

Cute home. Clean and crisp. Well taken care of. Location close to Rum Point and Kaibo. Starfish Point just down the road. We walked there twice. Sandy beach and we met some nice families by the pool. Recommend renting a car and driving around the island! Thank you Grand Cayman Villas for helping us pick the right property for our group! Highly recommend.

Thanksgiving in Cayman

We celebrated our Thanksgining Holiday in Grand Cayman. We considered 5-6 different properties and settled on The Kai Life due to interior quality of the home and location. We could not have been happier with our choice. Guest Services staff was a bonus as was the complimentary snorkel gear, cooler and bluetooth speaker. Great part of the island. Quiet, but plenty of activities!!!
