“Perfection on Rum Point”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

This was our second trip to The Retreat. This time, we were without kids, so we only needed a one-bedroom and Rum & Kai is the perfect choice. The unit is very spacious, and immaculately clean. It's perfect for two or a small family. We had everything we needed and then some. We especially enjoyed the massive movie hard drive! The reservation process was seamless as was communication. The Retreat complex is the island's best kept secret--perfect location, great beach, quiet, wonderful snorkeling, great amenities--the list goes on and on. We will definitely return! Thank you for a great stay.

“Favorite place ever!”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

We have done a great deal of traveling and have rented several homes through vrbo. Matt & Tracey's condo is by far the best vacation spot ever! Their home is fully equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay and then some! The location affords privacy and the local beach next door is steps away if you are looking for a little action. The snorkeling is outstanding and the beach is by far the most beautiful we have seen! Matt & Tracey's place is definitely #1 on our list of favorite vacation spots and we hope to return soon!

“Our Cayman vacation”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2012

We had a wonderful vacation to the Cayman Islands. The condo was beautiful and had all the comforts of home. We made breakfast in the morning and ate on the lanai with a beautiful view of the ocean. A couple days we turned the air conditioning off and open the windows. There was a great breeze and we could hear the ocean and palms. It was wonderful to go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean and wake up to the ocean. We loved the location. We stayed 2 nights in Seven Mile and the crowds of people was enough for us. The area the condo was in was away from all the crowds of tourist. On a return trip we decided we would rather stay at Rum Point, away from the crowds. The beach was great but water shoes are a must. We had tropical fish and stringray swim around us while just wading in the ocean. My husband and brother-in-law did some snorkeling and said there was plenty to see. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need. Not that we spent alot of time in the condo, mainly to sleep and eat. We had 4 adults in the condo and we were comfortable. What we like best is we were away from the crowds which made for a truly relaxing vacation!! We are already talking about going back!!!

“Amazing Honeymoon”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2011

Rum and Kai was the best place we could have ever spent our honeymoon. We were there for 12 days. It was so much more affordable than a hotel on 7 mile and so much better. You walk in the front door and can see out the porch to the beautiful ocean view. It is on the side of the complex, so no traffic in front. You have these wonderful breezes that come off the ocean on the screened in porch. We spent one whole day just reading there to get out of the sun. Many places in Grand Cayman do not have much of a beach, but the beach at the Retreat was wonderful. They have loungers out already, and there are palm trees so no need for an umbrella. But the apartment had everything in case you needed it, and I mean everything: snorkel gear, coolers, beach chairs, amazing beach towels, grill, and even koozies. We felt so lucky to be able to stay there. It was the off season, so most days we had the beach completely to ourselves. The restraunt and bar at Rum Point were a few steps from the beach, and there were plenty of other great restraunts near Rum Point, especially Kai Bo. You do need a car if you stay here, but well worth it. I cannot believe some people only stay on 7-mile. You really do miss everything if you do not come to the North Side or the East side of the island. We cannot wait to come back. The snorkeling is great right off the beach at the Retreat. It was a great vacation and an amazing honeymoon.

“Do not Rum and Kai now!!!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2011

My wife and I booked this unit for the first four nights of our Cayman trip! Matt and Tracy were great at sending me information about the unit and the area prior to the trip. The condo was perfect for us and was even better than the pictures! It was furnished and decorated so well that we'd like them to come to our home and do the same ; ) We had everything we needed and more!!! We ate all our meals on the patio and had very nice candlight dinners. The NorthCoast Management on site were great and responded quickly when we called. Snorkeling was awesome and we highly recommend taking the walk to Cayman Kai and riding the current back to Rum Point- we saw stingray, all kinds of fish and even a friendly sea turtle! Some of the brain coral forms were as big as a Volkswagon Beetle!!! Bring everything you need to eat in, or go next door to Rum Point and enjoy the bar and grill and/or the restaurant. We had the catch of the day and split the entree' and and appetizer and were pleasanty full. The meal was very delicious. Over the Edge was also nice for an evening meal, but apply bug spray before you go out. Having Red Sail Sports nextdoor made it very easy to book our trip to Sting Ray City, A Must Do! A car is convenient to have to run for more groceries or Caybrew. It's also a nice way to see other beaches and the rest of the island! Matt and Tracy provide some great info in the unit if you want to go exploring. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home! It was phenomenal and we'd do it all over again, maybe even with the kids!

“This place has it all!”

Reviewed 23 May 2011

My boyfriend, sister and I stayed here and absolutely loved it. Being an amateur snorkeler, this area is a great place for beginners. My boyfriend and I saw squid, barracuda, stingrays, huge lobster, flounder, puffer fish, parrot fish, and much more. One of our favorite things to do was eat all our meals and read on the screened-in porch. Great amenities - washer/dryer, kitchen with utensils (pots, pans, dishwasher, flatware), extra snorkel gear. Would definitely stay again when returning to Grand Cayman. The area - Rum Point - was very nice as well. While it was far from the rest of the island, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle the cruise ships cause along 7 Mile Beach. Very relaxed and peaceful. The restaurant right next to the Retreat was great. I had yummy fish and chips and a strong mudslide haha.

“Perfect Vacation. Rum & Kai (The Retreat#13)”

Reviewed 11 May 2011

Matt and Tracey were great from the initial inquiry for rental through the end of our stay. They answered all questions and provided plenty of information to help plan our vacation. The unit is very well appointed/decorated with all the amenities one could hope for in a vacation home and then some. The view from the screened in balcony is amazing. The unit overall seemed to be one of the best, if not the best in the complex. The location of the complex is great in that it offers plenty of privacy even with Rum Point (popular tourist attraction) located right next door. The sunrises and sunsets were amazing (yes you can see both if you get up early enough). A car is a must if you wish to explore the island which we did. Drove to the turtle farm, seven mile beach and "into town" as well as exploring the east end. The beach is small but is very good. Be sure to bring reef/water shoes as there is a good amount of turtle grass and some rocks along with some sandy areas. Our 3 y/o had a blast making sand castles and looking at the "yucky crabs" and snails. During our stay the water was a little choppy and the wind was blowing pretty well. Overall the beach is good for swimming and snorkeling. Saw a baby sting ray near the beach and a barracuda under the dock. Did not venture all the way out to the coral gardens since the water was choppy but did see a variety of sea life snorkeling not too far from shore. As recommended by Matt & Tracey we ventured out to other beaches and were glad we did. Would definitely recommend Rum & Kai to anymore looking for a quite getaway.

“No disappointments!!!”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2011

My wife and I just returned from our weeks stay in early april at "Rum & Kai". We have rented previously owned units throughout the Caribbean, FL, AZ, Maui and Canada. We must say that this unit comes with all of your essentials (+ many extras) to make your vacation enjoyable. Only your personal items will be all that you need. The in-suite washer/dryer is an added bonus to take home your duty free items as you will only need a few days worth of clothes. Previous comments and owner's desciption are accurate so we will not duplicate. Rum Point is very remote for those who enjoy solitude. You will need a car though to see other parts of the island and for restaurants. Dining is very casual dress from big city standards (shorts, golf shirt and sandals are the norm). "The Retreat" property is well maintained and the owners provide very useful info on where to dine, snorkel and dive, both before you arrive and in the unit itself. For those who wish to visit Seven Mile beach, the car trip is approximately 50 minutes and we enjoyed our full day there. Take along the owner's beach chairs, towels and cooler provided and beware of the cruise ship(s) visitors. No Disappoinments from us.

“Gorgeous condo on the most gorgeous part of the island”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2011

Wow - We had such an amazing time on our one week trip! The condo was really very well kept, and the decorating and comfort it had was a real treat. We went to various beaches across the island, and we believed the beaches right outside the condo (Rum Point) were the nicest on the island! We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and would absolutely stay there again. Overall, an amazing trip!

“A immaculate condo with beautiful balcony/deck view”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2011

This trip was the best vacation I had been on to just relax and enjoy the blue water, white beaches, and gorgeous sunsets. We could walk to local restaurant/beach and the resort has a private beach if you prefer the quiet. The accomodations were immaculate, very clean and well kept by the owners/resort services.
