Welcome to Abita Kai (pronounced A-bit-a Kai), an airy oceanfront villa with a private pool and new dock on a barefoot, white sand beach in Cayman Kai. The calm shallow waters behind this unique villa offer a wide palette of blue and turquoise colors as well as warm orange sunsets. 

The most unique feature of Abita Kai is that the villa, pool area, and beach are all wheelchair-accessible. The elevator, pool lift, and a beach wheelchair are available upon request.  It is the only larger luxury villa in the Rum Point area that offers this level of accessibility, while also being friendly for those who don't need the accessibility items. 

The estate includes a 3 bedroom-4 bathroom villa and a detached 2 bedroom-2 bathroom guest cottage above the garage. With a galley kitchen and living/TV area, the detached cottage is a great option for teenagers, grandparents, pilots or staff to live on-premises but maintain privacy by having two roofs within the same oceanfront estate, all within walking distance of restaurants and watersports.

Save the festive holidays, the homeowner offers a discounted rate for small groups (8 or fewer guests) renting the 3BR/4BA main house only—see Rates tab for pricing.

The oceanfront two-story screened atrium spans the entire width of the main house, allowing guests to savor tropical Caribbean views from all 3 oceanfront bedroom suites, including the living room and kitchen. 

This home ticks all the boxes for a large, active family looking for the privacy of a luxury villa on a calm, swimmable barefoot beach but within walking distance of The Kaibo Marina & Restaurants. The Kaibo offers water sports, a fine-dining restaurant, downstairs bar, casual restaurant with take-out service, coffee shop and marina with fishing, snorkel and scuba charters.  A passenger ferry service, operated by Cayman Ferries, departs to Camana Bay & Seven Mile Beach from the Kaibo Marina.

Review by Paige
Our stay, from booking to check out, was amazing! The communication with management was prompt. Our house manager Angela was excellent!! The house was in perfect condition. We had a slight issue with the downstairs bedroom AC and the main Fridge- both were attended to immediately! We used Rosie from Graze Girls to deliver groceries ahead of time. We also had her prepare a beautiful Charcuterie board and arrange for a chef to come one night. Rosie was WONDERFUL! Our entire week was wonderful. We travel a great deal and the entire family felt like this trip and experience was EXCEPTIONAL:)

Most Memorable Vacation

Review by Betst
Abita Kai will truly be one of the most memorable vacations for our family! The views were breathtaking and the location was so secluded and peaceful. The Villa itself, was comfortable and spacious with so many amenities and accessibility included. The two story Lanai was where we shared all of our meals and watched the brief storms go by. We practically lived in the infinity pool which was so warm this time of year and enjoyed viewing the sunsets at the end of our dock. Thank you to Grand Cayman Villas, Silver Thatch Guest Services and Angella Spence (our property manager), for an incredible week. We only wish it had been longer. See you again soon!

Wonderful vacation

Review by Millers
Grand cayman is absolutely stunning. The sea life is like no other. Abita Kai was beautiful! Everything was pristine. The house is in a perfect location. Walk to starfish point! The bioluminescent bay was incredible, that was close to the home also.It was such a haven for exploration. Starfish to view right off the beach! Kayaking and paddle boarding was a daily event. The house itself was perfect, the pool & beach right out the door! I would definitely stay there again. What a memorable trip. Silver thatch service was great they were very attentive and made sure you had everything you needed! Thanks for a great and memorable vacation!

Review by Jessica
This house was the perfect place for our trip. It is gorgeous. The pool was a great added bonus to swimming in the ocean. This is a great location if you want privacy. The restaurant down the street has great food and beverages. They also have a good coffee shop there. We saw stingrays, starfish, and a puffer fish right on the property. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Review by Bob
The house was better than the pictures. We were a group of 11. We received code to check in by email, we got snorkel equipment, bags game and a cooler from silver thatch all included. We used the provided kayaks and paddle boards. We were amazed by all the starfish by our beach. A wonderful vacation.

Simply Perfect

Review by Kelly
This property is simply perfect. We bought groceries for the week and never left the property! Gourmet kitchen, spacious home, and infinity pool overlooking the water. Swam during the day and relaxed in the screened in porch all night! Wonderful experience from beginning to end. I would highly recommend!

Location!!! Privacy!!!

Review by RF
Awesome location. Walk to the yacht club for dinner across the street or down the beach to starfish point. Property manager (Angella) checked in a couple of times to be sure we had everything we needed. Jim was great at keeping us updated ahead of our trip with the latest COVID protocols and travel paperwork so our arrival and departure was seamless. Everything was clean and as pictured. There was a vacant sandy lot on one side so it felt very private. Recommend the bioluminescence tour in rum point-very cool.

A-bit-a Perfect

Review by A Family of Ocean Lovers
Our multi-generational family group of adults (22 to 86) absolutely loved Abita (\'a bit of,\' I\'m told) Kai. The house is comfortable, relaxed, and quietly elegant. We have stayed in villas on many islands, including three on Grand Cayman, and this was one of our favorites. We used the infinity pool at all times of day, every day, and appreciated the steps and sturdy railings for safe entry. (There is also a chair lift to allow access for those that cannot walk in.) The dock is wonderful and was convenient for pickups/dropoffs by charters, and is accessible from the house via a mobility cart or wheelchair. Family particularly appreciated the indoor/outdoor vibe of the huge screened in patio and ability to open the house to the patio with sliding doors; touches like abundant beach towels and a well-stocked kitchen with every appliance and gadget you could want; handy, comfortable guest house, and peaceful location in Cayman Kai. Highly recommend.

Abita Kai is Abita Heaven!

Review by Angie
This marks our third trip to Grand Cayman and first time to the Cayman Kai area. If you are looking to get away from crowds and still have area restaurants, activities, sun and views, Abita Kai is the spot! Clean home in super condition. Guesthouse was a great bonus as we had a large family coming for parts of two weeks. We have already booked next summer!

Summer in Heaven

Review by Mitchkins
We spent 6 nights at Abita Kai this summer. Many spots on island had seaweed issues, but the beach at Abita Kai was clean and perfect our entire stay. We loved the location - walks to starfish point, Kaibo, Rum Point. The bioluminescent bay night tour with Sweet Spot is a must. Nice, comfortable beds. Lots of room for 10 of us! Highly recommend!

Simply Fabulous!!

Review by Mo
Abita Kai is a wonderful home! Kids had a blast in the pool and swimming out front. Kayaks and paddleboard were a great addition! The Kaibo up the street is fantastic. Brick oven pizza, great lunch. Upstairs restaurant was so good we ate there twice. Great experience with Grand Cayman Villas in recommending the home to us. We would stay here again and again!!

The Views!

Review by The Masters Family
Abita Kai - beautiful home, well maintained, lots of space, elevator for disabled father. It was like the home was built for our family! Great location and view. Lots to do. Booking process was helpful and easy. Recommendations for restaurants were spot on! We had a local cook for a night - that was the best meal of the week! Stingray charter picked us up from the dock - Silver Thatch Charters with Joe! A must. Abita Kai does not disappoint!

Abita Kai enjoys a beautiful barefoot white-sandy beach and northwestern sunset views facing the Stingray Sandbar & protective reef. You can walk barefoot all the way down to Starfish Point about 1/2 mile away, and north for about 1/2 mile as well. 

The Kaibo is only 200 yards from the house and is an excellent place to grab your morning coffee, a casual lunch, takeout pizza for the kids, or enjoy an elegant dinner in their "Upstairs" fine dining restaurant.

The Kaibo also has a marina and is where many private charters will collect guests for private deep-sea fishing trips, snorkel safaris, or charters to Stingray City. Cayman Ferries also departs from the Kaibo across the sound to Camana Bay and Seven Mile Beach. It's the perfect day trip for guests wanting to explore, shop, or dine on Seven Mile Beach.

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high water mark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. 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. Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. 

Should sargassum weed be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation. We try our best to work around mother nature.
