New Owner - Upgrades to Come

Ocean Kai is built on the oceanfront along a sandy ridge in Cayman Kai. Spanning over 5,500 square feet of vaulted living space and an open design, Ocean Kai sleeps 12 guests across 6 bedroom suites. 

Upon entering the great room there is an immediate "wow factor" as your eyes take in the ocean views through a wall of glass doors and windows looking out over the pool deck.

The open living area has a cathedral ceiling accentuating the home’s size and grandeur. A mezzanine loft with a glass railing serves as a media room and has an oceanfront windowed dormer with outstanding ocean views.

A full-width, oceanfront shaded veranda overlooks a 38-foot private pool with steps leading down to your own sandy beach. The veranda is furnished with plush sectional seating and an outdoor dining area.

Vacation Rental Reviews by

No Home Better!!!

         
Review by Ellen
This marks another wonderful stay with Grand Cayman Villas for our Grand Cayman holiday. Family of 8, all adults, room to spread out for everyone, plenty of privacy. Very large home in Rum Point. Amazing views, minimal seaweed issue, nice kayaking and snorkeling. Thank you! We look forward to our next trip and recommend Ocean Kai to everyone!
5 out of 5 stars

Lovely modern villa, good for a big group

         
Review by Ella
The house is modern, spacious and comfortable, and the outdoor space/view is what sells it. Each bedroom has a beautiful private bathroom and individual AC zoning. This was perfect for our group of 4 couples + an infant. Kitchen/common space is lovely and modern and the outdoor patio + pool area were beautiful so we spent the majority of our vacation at the property! The location was also great for our group - quiet part of the island but short drive to convenience stores and access to dive shops/water sports (also loved the kaibo beach bar area down the road). The property manager was very accessible, which we appreciated. There were a few not so perfect things. The seaweed build up on beach made it unusable, but the property manager made efforts to have it cleared out, however we wished this had happened sooner during stay. To their credit, this is a seasonal issue they cannot control so we did not let this affect our rating. The cleaning crew was still on-site 2.5hours beyond check-in time. Lastly, wifi did not reach any of the bedrooms - this was tough for getting work done in a private room or streaming online such as cartoons for kids. That all said, we are giving the villa 5-stars as it was as pictured online, property manager was very accessible, and we really enjoyed the property. We would come back, recommend it to others and hopefully next time we beat the seaweed takeover!

Huge Home with Best Views

         
Review by Sammy M.
We have been coming to Grand Cayman for 5 years and try to stay in a different home/location each time. Ocean Kai is by far our favorite. The pictures just do not show how large the home is. The loft is perfect for kids and watching tv. The beach was a nice sand. We swam and snorkeled every day. Recommend a trip to Stingray City with Silver Thatch Charters - Joe is the best!!! I think we return to this home now.!!!

Perfect for Our Family

         
Review by Rosemary
Ocean Kai was perfect for our family of 12, 7 adults and 5 kids (9 and under). Location was great, quiet but close enough to enjoy many adventures. Villa was spacious and more beautiful than anticipated. Pool was great and we had to get in the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean! What a view to wake up to every morning

A Gem in Cayman Kai

         
Review by Trish
My husband and I have been renting houses yearly on the north side of Grand Cayman for the last 20 years. We like to invite relatives and friends from around the US to join us for a week at a time. Our recent stay at Ocean Kai was spectacular. All 16 guests (over a 3 week period) agreed that this was the best house we have stayed in. We particularly liked the fact that all 5 bedrooms were on the first floor since most of us were over 60. The pool was beautiful, with plenty of room and well tended to weekly by the pool service. The abundance of chaise lounges was appreciated. We spent quite a bit of time enjoying the patio eating and sitting areas (nicely shaded). Good snorkeling out to the reef. Good water flow in the showers, not always the case. We definitely plan to rent Ocean Kai again. As always, Jim was great about responding immediately to the small problem we had and made sure it was immediately corrected. My only complaint would be that the TV does not have as many stations as other houses we have stayed in. However, the internet connections were better than most.

Ocean Kai is only a mile east of the famous Rum Point Club and enjoys a sandy beach and excellent snorkeling.

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

The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef-protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but also can have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations.

The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, with the abundant marine life we have in the water, you will want to wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection. The trade winds from the east also make flying insects less of a nuisance—many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch.

The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many water sports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina.

Lastly, we have 2 large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.

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.
