What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Family Vacation
The house was wonderful, the location was excellent! Quiet! And the bio illumination was sooo cool! We all had a great time!
Awesome house - Outdoor living area is amazing
This house is amazing. Every room is comfortable. The master suite is gorgeous and spacious. The pool area is fantastic and all the outdoor furniture is comfortable. We lounged by the pool every afternoon while our little one napped. The walk to Rum Point Beach was easy and the beach was fun. We enjoyed being on this side of the island and could not have asked for a better house!
Renames: Great Choice
3BR/2Ba "Great Escape" & 1BR/1Ba Guest Cottage are located on the quiet cove in Cayman Kai (only steps from the Rum Point Club) on the north coast. This one story private villa is a great family or couples choice and offers a white sand barefoot beach amid palm trees that offer guests shade from the Caribbean sun. Great Escape is configured to meet the needs of the large family with a sizable "L"-shaped freshwater swimming pool, even including optional pool heat in winter ($250/wk).
We loved our stay at Great Escape villa. The villa was very nicely furnished and well maintained, and comfortably slept our group of three couples. When we reported one small problem with the outdoor pool shower, someone came immediately to repair it. The pool was the highlight for us. It is the largest pool that we have ever had at a vacation rental property. We paid a little extra to have it heated, and enjoyed swimming in it all day and into the evening. Lush landscaping around the pool keeps it very private, and you can always find a shady spot during the day. Every morning we had breakfast at an outdoor table next to the pool. Just beyond the pool is a nice white sand beach next to a quiet inlet, but swimming is not as good because of the sea grass. When we wanted to swim in the sea, we walked a half block down the road to the Rum Point beach. The villa has two kayaks which we used for exploring the inlet and beyond. We used the outdoor grill three nights when we ate in. We also had nice dinners out at the Rum Point restaurant, and at Over the Edge a little farther along the north shore road, both of which are recommended. We definitely would go back to Great Escape.
Great for Families who want some seclusion and privacy
Service from our booking company (grandcaymanvillas.net) was fantastic. I will 100% use them again after we received nothing but total professional treatment from a clearly great operation.
The house was top notch. Our party had 4 houses booked and this was the nicest one for a family, in my view, despite not being on the beach.
Only a few minor complaints about the house itself, the hot water heater is a little small for the expected heavy usage especially with a dual head master shower, also septic tank can be a little trouble if you overuse water, so just be mindful.
The outdoor pool area was great for relaxation. No beach access of course makes it a little less desirable, but I preferred this over the beach access houses in terms of livability.
The amenities were awesome1
Kitchen, awesome layout and very inviting if with a group from other parts of the island.
All high end appliances (kitchen aide and whirlpool super quiet washer).
Interior design, well above average, all rooms color coordinated perfectly.
Fixtures were all new and top shelf.
Master bedroom and bathroom were super! Your wife / girlfriend will adore you for being able to spend time in this room.
House is all 1 level, which makes getting around very easy!
In house Wifi / phone / cable is nice, but who wants to watch TV?
Side rooms for other couples / kids are great. The pool house is great since it is separate and self contained of the main house, so it allows a little separation.
Location is far from grocery stores, as you are warned, so make sure you stock up.
The service from the manager was great as well. We had a leaking toilet that was causing the septic to not flush water and they had a plumber out within 1 hour on a Sunday! That is great service.
I almost don't want to talk the house up too much, so I can book it again. I would not suggest for young people looking to economize or 'party it up', but great for 30 and up couples and those with families.

Wonderful home, beautiful pool (best in cayman kai) across the street from a picture perfect beach and down the street from a bar/restaurant that should be in a movie.
Excellent escape from the daily grind
We held our corporate retreat in January, the home was in wonderful condition. The pool w/heater was fantastic! A perfect getaway. One thing that was inconvienient was the lack of spices for cooking. Obviously, the spices are very expensive for a short stay. I would like to see some of those added so that the cost, convienince and experience of cooking at home would be better. Overall, we highly recommend the Great Escape and already have to many of our friends.
We stayed at the Great Escape from Nov. 26 - Dec. 4 2011. We were in Grand Cayman for a friends wedding that was to be held at Sun Salutations across the street. The Great Escape was an ideal location and a beautiful property inside and out. As a group we rented The Great Escape, Sun Salutations, Rainbow's End and We'll Sea. All properties were immaculate and we will be returning once again. The Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom were amazing in the Great Escape, the kitchen had very nice appliances and plenty of room. We stayed with 6 adults and could've added a couple more and never felt crowded. There is plenty to do from biking to kayaking to beach volleyball. A 2 minute walk from Rum Point where there are stores, restaurants etc. I highly recommend the Great Escape if you are planning a trip to Grand Cayman.
