    Sunset House #16




    We loved our stay at Sunset House #16 Cayman Kai's. This is our second stay at the Kai's and 4th time to Grand Cayman.

    The house is very well appointed with everything you need to cook anything for yourself, or just make fruity rum drinks all week. (coffee maker is drip, in case anyone is wondering if they will need pods, etc lots of filters in the cupboard, so don't buy any.)

    Lots of towels and good linens. Lots of beach towels. The kayaks are great and there are lots of paddles. I seem to remember seeing someone mention they needed paddles but there are more than enough. Wanted for nothing, save some seat cushions on the patio furniture. Plastic wicker was a little uncomfortable on bare legs, but we can imagine that cushions wouldn't last long in salty, humid air.

    This rental is in a quiet, off the beaten path area. A car is a must. There is no nightlife, clubs, casinos etc. A couple of restaurants within walking or biking distance, beach bar at Rum Point.

    If you don't mind a drive for food, skip the Rum Point restaurants, you won't miss much, and head (8 min drive) to Kurt's Corner at Old Man Bay. Take out or eat in their palapa.
    This is real island food. Fresh and very good. If the curried grouper is on the special board, do not miss it. Another not to miss spot is Mrs. Vivien's Kitchen in East End. Also real island food. Oxtail with rice and beans, fish, chicken with dumplings etc. Lots of good places to eat, but these authentic spots stand out in your memory after you get home and the sand is cleaned out of your suitcase.

    If you are looking for young, spring break beach crowd you will be very lonely! Book at Seven Mile Beach and leave the rest of us to enjoy the sound of wind in the palm trees and surf breaking on the reef.

    About children at the Kai's. The area in front of the Kai's (lagoon) is not suitable for children to swim or play in. The water is shallow and slightly stagnant with slimy bottom and for children the most concerning is that it is filled with upside-down jelly fish. (Google them) They have a mild sting. But don't worry! The white sand beach is steps away at Rum Point Beach. The water in front of the Kai's is famous for its bio luminescence but not it's swimming.

    Note: Do not arrive on Sunday, nothing is open so we had to return to town on Monday for food and spirits. (hour drive to George Town grocery stores from Rum Point)

    Enjoy Sunset House as much as we did!

    Perfect place to stay on the island!

    We were two couples and stayed for 10 days and this condo was perfect. It is big enough and the two bedrooms/bathrooms are separate to give you privacy along with your own balcony. The unit is exactly as the pictures show, very clean and has everything you could need, we were missing nothing. It was great to have our breakfast overlooking the cove in the morning watching fish play and a glass of wine at night. Rum Point and Island house is the best place as far as we were concerned to stay in Grand Caymen, quiet, beautiful beach, lots to do and great snorkeling. A few must things to do includes the free tour of the Bio Bay at night in the kayaks, simple breathtaking, never saw anything like this before. Sting Ray City is a must, we took the catamaran and had a great day, they are beautiful and gently creatures, see the Crystal Caves and visit Starfish point. We ate at the Italian Kitchen (very good), the Lighthouse, expensive but worth it (sit outside on the dock), lunch at Rum Point while enjoying the beach (good value and good food, drinks are not cheap) and dinner there as well (very expensive). We would easily rent there again and would definitely recommend this condo, great place for a relaxing vacation! The only thing we would recommend is a paddle boat rather than kayaks, but this is just our personal preference and be aware that the island is more expensive than other islands. We visited George Town and Seven Mile beach, but truly could not wait to get back to Rum Point.....thank you for sharing your place with us!

    My Response
    Michele, Thank you for your response. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at our place. We agree with you in that Rumpoint is the best place on the island. We look forward hosting you and your friends again. Take care.

    This was our first visit to the Cayman Islands and we couldn't be happier that we decided to stay in Rum Point. We ventured down to Seven Mile and George Town, but preferred the peaceful serenity Rum Point has to offer. The Island Sunset was just perfect for our family of six. We took full advantage of cooking breakfast and dinner, but ate lunch out most days at the Wreck Bar. The food was excellent and the kids loved the smoothies. We did go to Kaibo for Tuesday night beach BBQ. This was well worth the money spent. The band, Bona Fide-Cayman was so much fun, the kids loved it. We all danced and had a great time. We also loved to go down to Starfish beach. The water is spectacular. We actually kayaked there one day from the Island House. If you do choose to do this, just make sure you don't do this on a windy day. Snorkeling at Rum Point Beach was a favorite as well as nighttime walks to the Pier. We saw many stingrays, barracudas and other various tropical fish. We would highly recommended staying here, unless you prefer a more touristy area. Can't wait to come back some day.

    We stayed at island houses last year in the property next door, and although that house was good this property was far superior as it had been fully refurbished, it was very clean. The views are fantastic and it is perfect to sit out in the morning, relax by the pool in the day cook a BBQ in the evening. The only things that stopped us from scoring a five star was the main patio door from the kitchen to the lanai was hard to operate, the kitchen lacked a sharp knife, proper wine glasses and BBQ tools. We would definitely return though.

    .Terrific accommodations and location

    • Guest David (Utah)

    Island House 16 is a fantastic place--we had the good fortune to meet Chris and Lori (the owners), who happened to be vacationing on-island at the same time (and stayed in their unit prior to our checkin). Very nice folks who take pride in their home and accommodations for their guests. The unit is completely and beautifully updated and well cared for (as is the entire complex--homeowner's association obviously does a great job). In general, so many rentals on the island are tired and outdated--not here! Very spacious for 4. Upscale, but not stuffy (very comfortable). Bikes and kayaks are a great perk. The first night we kayaked the bay (literally steps out the back door) and experienced the bioluminescence--amazing!! Beautiful views of the bay/water from every room. Better than the pictures depict. Extremely convenient to Rum Point (our favorite spot on the island)--a 2 minute walk just across the complex. Lots of beach towels provided (I think we counted 12?), which was very convenient. I also loved the excellent water pressure in the shower. Ths is a fantastic rental option, and this will be our first pick next time we return to the island.

    • Fabulous Vacation, Wonderful House

      • Guest Tarheels (Elon, NC/US)

      Our family had a wonderful vacation while staying at the Island Sunset island house. The nicely renovated house had a fully stocked kitchen, towels and comfy linens were provided as well as nice large beach/pool towels. We loved how the house opened up to the spacious screened porch for that airy, island feel. Our entire family, including children ages 5 & 8, enjoyed many kayak excursions in the kayaks provided with the house. The kids were captivated by the bioluminescent bay on our night kayak ventures. Rum Point beach is just across the street and offers water sports, food, and a nice beach- perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Our kids also enjoyed the salt water pool located just steps from the island house. The local Cayman Kai Vacations property manager was always available for any questions we had and the staff was very helpful as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation, would definitely return, and highly recommend this great Cayman Kai home!

      • Guest Aune (Elmhurst, IL)

      The owners did a very nice job updating the townhouse with modern but also 'workable' furnishings which is needed on such a beautiful, sandy beach. The kayaks were a nice touch which we spent quite a bit of time on enjoying the bioluminescent cove after dark. The house had nothing lacking whatsoever. The island is expensive from a cost of living standpoint but worth the investment. Make it a point to enjoy a 'Tastings' dinner at the Kaibo 'Upstairs' restaurant but know that you virtually can't go wrong with any of the dining choices on the island. Lots to do and friendly people quick with a wave and a smile.

      Ideal location for a quiet vacation

      • Guest Kristin (Chicago, IL USA)

      We really enjoyed this rental property. A beautiful view of the cove and only steps away from the ocean and Rum Point. Gorgeous beach! The unit was well equipped and suited two couples beautifully. The nights we cooked in we sat on the lanai and really enjoyed having the spacious table and chairs there.

      Pictures simply cannot capture the beauty of “Island Sunset” Island House. “Island Sunset” was one of our most relaxing vacations. Many activities. (jetskis, boat tours, and shopping), along with food and drink available 7 days a week, plus snorkeling at any time. This island house was spotless and has been recently remodeled and redecorated beautifully. From the updated fully-equipped amazing kitchen with a huge granite island, great updated showers that had terrific shower pressure, and very comfortable bedding with all new furniture, we found this vacation home… Perfect! We were awed by the view from the screened in lanai that spans the back of house, where we sat and relaxed and looked out at the bio-luminescent cove, with a beautifully landscaped yard full of palm trees and flowers, and only being steps from the pool was a plus. There were three kayaks for children and one 2-seat very “stable” kayak for adults, which we used many times, and also 5 bicycles were provided. We truly loved this vacation property, and will be recommending this property to friends and family and will definitely stay here again. Thanks you Lori and Chris for a fantastic vacation!

      Hands Down the Most Fantastic Stay We Have Ever Had!

      • Guest Andrew H.

      We stayed here for 5 nights. My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniverssary. From start to finish this trip was absolutely perfect and very Romantic. The owners Chris and Lori were a delight to work with and so was the management company. The transaction was easy and secure as well. We were provided with everything one needed to locate the property with ease. We were also provided with maps, pictures of local buildings and landwarks for reference, and detailed directions. If you stay in Rum Point you will need a rental car. We were also provided with information on activities locally and around the island. Before arriving we felt we were very prepared just by the information that was provided. We stayed in the island sunset house No 16. The property is all around amazing. The pictures portray the property exactly. We immediately felt at home when we walked in. The house is beautiful and fully remodeled. Beds and couches were comfortable and tons of space for all belongings throughout. The entire house has been updated including appliances, countertops, and televisions. The house has everything you need. Bikes, kayaks, towels, WIFI, and free calls to the U.S. The location is perfect as well. The location has an amazing beach, great food, and even live entertainment on some nights. The atmosphere at this end of the island is relaxing and one of enjoying life. With older adults and families enjoying the pristine beach, you do not get the bombardment of crowds. All reccomendations for rentals cars, grocery stores, and restaurants were perfect as well. I can go on and on, so I will sum it up by saying that we cannot wait to go back and stay at the same Island house again We will be referring everyone we know to stay here or any other property Chris and Lori represent. If you stay here, be prepared to never want to leave.

      All the comforts of home in great location!

      • Guest Katie

      Great layout, nicely updated and well maintained.  All the comforts of home – A/C, good comfortable beds, flat screen TVs, WiFi, well equipped kitchen, laundry plus the extras – kayaks, bikes, beach towels, beach toys.  We loved eating meals on lanai and drinks on beach chairs in late afternoon sun watching kids kayak or play on the sand.  Short walk to Rum Point and all it has to offer.  We enjoyed exploring the island and then returning to the quiet and tranquility of the Island Houses.  Robert Wagner (property manager) did a great job providing information and helping us plan our vacation to the Island Houses and Grand Cayman.
