(Age-Restriction: All Guests Must Be 10 or Older)

Kai-yak Cove is a newly-built luxury Caribbean-style villa in the tranquil resort neighborhood of Cayman Kai. Guests will enjoy many unique features, including a wrap-around veranda, a pool with a heated spa, an outdoor kitchen, and a private dock with a gazebo. The quality of the build, decor, and furnishings is first-class. The villa was recently featured on the front cover of a local home and garden magazine.

The sky blue exterior and crisp, white trim hint at the level of decor within. Wall coverings, furniture, and plantation shutters all evoke a resort-casual, beach cottage feel. With all the decor, amenities, and privacy, many of our guests do not venture far from the villa during their stay. Kai-Yak Cove has plenty of quiet areas for reading, relaxing, or streaming your favorite content.

The first-floor den is equipped with a large SmartTV and Sonos soundbar and a plush sectional sofa. The den connects to a full bathroom that also serves as the lower-level powder room. Pocket doors and plantation shutters add privacy and shade for watching the big game or movie. A second media room with SmartTV and Sonos on the second floor offers walk-out access to a waterfront balcony.

The big draw to the great room is a wall of sliding glass that affords a full view of the pool, beach, and quiet cove waters. Outside, a generously spaced veranda allows for shaded lounging/dining whilst enjoying the sea breeze and views. 

The gourmet kitchen is a vacationing chef's dream. Kitchen-Aid appliances include a built-in main fridge and freezer, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a wall oven, a microwave, and a warming drawer that doubles as a slow cooker. Small appliances and a drip coffee maker are also provided. 

The villa's private pool includes an elevated spa, plus a sun shelf for a ledge lounger. Spa heat is an optional add-on charge, year-round. 

An outdoor kitchen cabana with a propane grill, icemaker, and beverage fridge is perfect for island cookouts under the stars. 

A sandy beachfront leads down to the villa's dock and gazebo. The cove is not ideal for swimming due to the soft bottom, however, there is beach access to the barefoot white sand beach directly across the street, as well as closer to Rum Point.

The villa offers one bedroom suite on the first floor and three bedrooms on the second floor.

The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.

The cove-front homes in Cayman Kai offer serene waters for docking a rental boat, charter boat pick-up and drop-off, plus kayaking or paddle boarding with no waves.  

The cove is locally referred to as Bioluminescent Bay, one of the few throughout the world and one of the island's most popular night-time tourist attractions. On a moonless night, guests can launch kayaks off the villa's dock for a bio-tour of the glowing phytoplankton—an experience not to be missed!

You get the best of both worlds at this home: a backyard facing the cove with private pool and boat dock, plus barefoot white-sand swimming across the street using the public right-of-way beach access.

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically "public", in that you can swim anywhere along the coast, even behind the Ritz-Carlton! 

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, water sports, restaurants, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games.

Also nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club featuring a fine dining restaurant, a casual beach bar and grill, and a marina. Ferry service to Camana Bay departs from the Kaibo Marina, perfect for day trips to Seven Mile Beach!

Overall, Cayman Kai is a fabulous neighborhood dotted with million-dollar oceanfront villas and sweeping tropical views. 

General Grand Cayman Beach Notes 

All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the King owns up to the high water mark.

The shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised, the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website due to weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

Sargassum is not an issue for homes along the cove.
