“Wonderful Location! The Muskoka of Grand Cayman”
From the Bensons new owners of Starboard Kai before they bought
We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at the Island Houses in
November 2012 and equally enjoyed our week in January 2013. The
easiest way to book is through Cayman Kai Vacations online as
they are very helpful and provide assistance when needed.
Location: The Island Houses are located in Cayman Kai, across
from Rum Point Beach on the north shore of Grand Cayman. The 45
minute drive from the airport takes you away from the busy Seven
Mile Beach area and provides an excellent location for a
relaxing vacation. Especially suitable for two couples or a
family of four, the Island Houses are situated, in a semi
circle, directly on a sand-rimmed, palm-lined cove, perfect for
kayaking with easy access to the ocean (a 5 minute paddle).
Steps away, out the front door, is Rum Point Beach (directly
across the street). This beautiful beach, featuring the famous
dock, provides a wonderful spot to swim, snorkel and go for long
walks. You can also head off from here for a visit to Stingray
City and Sandbar - a must do activity for any trip to Grand
Cayman. A number of other excursions, such as the sunset cruise,
are also available.
Accommodation: Each of the 18 "Island Houses of Cayman Kai" is a
privately owned villa. They are decorated according to the
individual owners' tastes, so the best advice is to review them
online and find the one best suited to your liking. Each "Island
House" is a two story, two bedroom, three bathroom (two are
ensuite) home complete with fully appointed kitchen, living and
dining room and a large two-story lanai (screened-in porch).
This is where you will want to spend your time when indoors - it
is a wonderful space.
A number of the "Island Houses" have kayaks for their guests to
enjoy (some also have bicycles). Snorkel equipment is available
to purchase or rent across the street at Rum Point (we chose to
bring our own). There is a lovely pool, with a great view of the
cove, for the exclusive use of "Island House" guests. We often
found we had the pool all to ourselves.
Amenities: In addition to those already mentioned, the "Island
Houses" come fully equipped, including bedding, beach towels,
etc. Most evenings we opted to enjoy our surroundings and the
BBQ at our villa but there are a couple of lovely restaurants in
the neighborhood (Kaibo is a good walk /short drive, another is
directly across the street at Rum Point). Kaibo has both a fine
dining restaurant (upstairs) and more casual fair on the beach
(downstairs). Each Friday closest to the full moon Kaibo hosts a
wonderful dinner on the beach (reservations a must). They also
hold other Caribbean style evenings - be sure to check their
Other tips: Be sure to rent a car by reserving ahead of time.
Once accustomed to driving on the left, which takes no time at
all, Grand Cayman is quite easy and safe to navigate and a
wonderful island to explore. Although you may not want to leave
Cayman Kai and Rum Point, there are many other fabulous beaches
and sites to see. If you are into scuba or snorkeling Grand
Cayman is spectacular! George Town is a great place to wander
about and of course enjoy a drink on the wharf after some duty
Getting there: As we are flying from Canada, our most direct and
cost effective choices are Air Canada and West Jet. Both offer
more than one flight a week in "high season".
- Hi Bob,
- Home from our fabulous vacation at Cayman Kai and I
just wanted you to know how much we loved our stay.
- The island house was perfect and really nicely done.
The location right on the beach was wonderful, and Rum
Point was such a nice beach.
- Everything in the house was so well done and ready
for us, including the water foot bath out the back. The
kitchen was really well stocked with cooking gear.
- We loved the big porch and large windows.
- The location is a bit far from most restaurants, but
we did love Kaibo - wish we had known about the full
moon dinner....next time !
- Mitzi was great - she stopped in our second day and
was kind enough to make Christmas reservations for us at
The Grand Old House , where we had an exceptional
dinner. She was a gem. She even drove us to town one
day when the buses weren't running and my husband and
son had taken the car to go diving in town. I offered to
pay for gas, but she declined.
- I have just forwarded the website to a friend of
mine here in Portland who is looking for a warm weather
vacation this winter, so you may hear from him.
- Thanks so much and Happy New Year.
“Lovely condo, Ideal Location”
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. The beach is just steps away from the front door, and
the screened porch in back, facing the cove, is a great
place to relax. The pool is private and never crowded. Bob
and Mitzie, the managers of the rentals, were so helpful and
easy to work with. We thought we might have to stay an extra
night because of a snow storm back home, and they worked to
find a spot for us in another condo. Walter and the other
guys at Red Sail sports were also super nice, helping us
with the Stingray city tour, wave runner rental, and snorkel
gear. This is a great place for a family vacation. You can
alternate between eating out and cooking at home. There's
wifi and cable for the kids. Plenty to do or just hang out
Room Tip: There's no grocery store nearby, so
stock up on your way in from the airport.

accommodations at Starboard Kai No.4. Right on the
beach, pool, everything brand new.”
Starboard Kai No. 4 has recently been completely
renovated and is truly exquisite. You will find it
fully equipped for all your requirements the only
things to pick up coming from the airport are
groceries and drinks. Being a senior the proximity
of the pool, ocean, as well as the local restaurants
was most attractive. There are also available bikes
and ocean kayaks and all that Rum Point offers. The
pool area is lovely and the grounds surrounding are
beautifully kept, right down to the removal of
over-hanging coconuts. Everything inside is brand
new and the kitchen is a joy to work in, granite
counters, stainless steel appliances all that one
requires. We ate most meals on the screened in lanai
with a wonderful view of the lagoon. I hope everyone
enjoys it as much as I did.
There is no fitness centre,
restaurant and/or room choice, this being a
Island House complex.
