    “Wonderful Location! The Muskoka of Grand Cayman”

    From the Bensons new owners of Starboard Kai before they bought Starboard Kai.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at the Island Houses in November 2012 and equally enjoyed our week in January 2013.  The easiest way to book is through Cayman Kai Vacations online as they are very helpful and provide assistance when needed.

    Location: The Island Houses are located in Cayman Kai, across from Rum Point Beach on the north shore of Grand Cayman. The 45 minute drive from the airport takes you away from the busy Seven Mile Beach area and provides an excellent location for a relaxing vacation. Especially suitable for two couples or a family of four, the Island Houses are situated, in a semi circle, directly on a sand-rimmed, palm-lined cove, perfect for kayaking with easy access to the ocean (a 5 minute paddle). Steps away, out the front door, is Rum Point Beach (directly across the street). This beautiful beach, featuring the famous dock, provides a wonderful spot to swim, snorkel and go for long walks. You can also head off from here for a visit to Stingray City and Sandbar - a must do activity for any trip to Grand Cayman. A number of other excursions, such as the sunset cruise, are also available.

    Accommodation: Each of the 18 "Island Houses of Cayman Kai" is a privately owned villa. They are decorated according to the individual owners' tastes, so the best advice is to review them online and find the one best suited to your liking. Each "Island House" is a two story, two bedroom, three bathroom (two are ensuite) home complete with fully appointed kitchen, living and dining room and a large two-story lanai (screened-in porch). This is where you will want to spend your time when indoors - it is a wonderful space.
    A number of the "Island Houses" have kayaks for their guests to enjoy (some also have bicycles). Snorkel equipment is available to purchase or rent across the street at Rum Point (we chose to bring our own). There is a lovely pool, with a great view of the cove, for the exclusive use of "Island House" guests. We often found we had the pool all to ourselves.

    Amenities: In addition to those already mentioned, the "Island Houses" come fully equipped, including bedding, beach towels, etc. Most evenings we opted to enjoy our surroundings and the BBQ at our villa but there are a couple of lovely restaurants in the neighborhood (Kaibo is a good walk /short drive, another is directly across the street at Rum Point). Kaibo has both a fine dining restaurant (upstairs) and more casual fair on the beach (downstairs). Each Friday closest to the full moon Kaibo hosts a wonderful dinner on the beach (reservations a must). They also hold other Caribbean style evenings - be sure to check their calendar online.

    Other tips: Be sure to rent a car by reserving ahead of time. Once accustomed to driving on the left, which takes no time at all, Grand Cayman is quite easy and safe to navigate and a wonderful island to explore. Although you may not want to leave Cayman Kai and Rum Point, there are many other fabulous beaches and sites to see. If you are into scuba or snorkeling Grand Cayman is spectacular! George Town is a great place to wander about and of course enjoy a drink on the wharf after some duty free shopping.

    Getting there: As we are flying from Canada, our most direct and cost effective choices are Air Canada and West Jet. Both offer more than one flight a week in "high season".

    Hi Bob,
    Home from our fabulous vacation at Cayman Kai and I just wanted you to know how much we loved our stay.
    The island house was perfect and really nicely done. The location right on the beach was wonderful, and Rum Point was such a nice beach. 
    Everything in the house was so well done and ready for us, including the water foot bath out the back. The kitchen was really well stocked with cooking gear. 
    We loved the big porch and large windows. 
    The location is a bit far from most restaurants, but we did love Kaibo - wish we had known about the full moon dinner....next time ! 
    Mitzi was great - she stopped in our second day and was kind enough to make Christmas reservations for us at The Grand Old House , where we had an exceptional dinner. She was a gem. She even drove us to  town one day when the buses weren't running and my husband and son had taken the car to go diving in town. I offered to pay for gas, but she declined. 
    I have just forwarded the website to a friend of mine here in Portland who is looking for a warm weather vacation this winter, so you may hear from him. 
    Thanks so much and Happy New Year.

    “Lovely condo, Ideal Location”

    We were in Starboard Kai #4. It had just been remodeled and everything was beautiful and of the highest quality. The condo was stocked with soap, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent, which is not always the case when one rents a vacation condo. There are also bikes and kayaks to use. The beach is just steps away from the front door, and the screened porch in back, facing the cove, is a great place to relax. The pool is private and never crowded. Bob and Mitzie, the managers of the rentals, were so helpful and easy to work with. We thought we might have to stay an extra night because of a snow storm back home, and they worked to find a spot for us in another condo. Walter and the other guys at Red Sail sports were also super nice, helping us with the Stingray city tour, wave runner rental, and snorkel gear. This is a great place for a family vacation. You can alternate between eating out and cooking at home. There's wifi and cable for the kids. Plenty to do or just hang out and relax!

    Room Tip: There's no grocery store nearby, so stock up on your way in from the airport.

    “Wonderful accommodations at Starboard Kai No.4. Right on the beach, pool, everything brand new.”


    Starboard Kai No. 4 has recently been completely renovated and is truly exquisite. You will find it fully equipped for all your requirements the only things to pick up coming from the airport are groceries and drinks. Being a senior the proximity of the pool, ocean, as well as the local restaurants was most attractive. There are also available bikes and ocean kayaks and all that Rum Point offers. The pool area is lovely and the grounds surrounding are beautifully kept, right down to the removal of over-hanging coconuts. Everything inside is brand new and the kitchen is a joy to work in, granite counters, stainless steel appliances all that one requires. We ate most meals on the screened in lanai with a wonderful view of the lagoon. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

    Room Tip: There is no fitness centre, restaurant and/or room choice, this being a Island House complex.

    Mike and Janice,

    Just sitting in the departure lounge (sadly) waiting for our flight home. ( Actually we've landed and am now sending this from home).

    We had the most amazing time!  We've been to a lot of places in the Caribbean and none more beautiful than Cayman.  Breathtaking!

    Starboard Kai is just lovely - so nicely decorated and so comfortable.  Love the two storey screened-in lanai!

    We enjoyed the pool, the beach across the road and many others including Starfish Point which we essentially had to ourselves.  We snorkelled, did a night kayak to check out the bioluminescence and lots of beach walking.  Visited the Botanical Gardens one day which we really enjoyed and had fabulous meals at a variety of restaurants.  I think our favourite was Kaibo both upstairs and the more casual beach bar down below.  As you had mentioned, fabulous pizza!

    Never made it to Morritts or Tukka and while we saw several stingrays, we didn't do the Stingray City trip.  Had to save a few things for next time!

    It really was a wonderful holiday from start to finish.  Appreciated all the helpful info you provided to us leading up to our arrival.

    We left a glowing note in your visitor's book and will be glad to put something on Trip Advisor.  I can't imagine a nicer place to stay or visit!

    Thanks again.  You should be so proud of that lovely place.  Can imagine how difficult it is for you to leave it!

    January 2014

    My wife and I stayed at this beautiful condo for a week in January 2014 and it was simply wonderful.  It’s a luxurious semidetached home on the ocean with all the comforts of being at home plus the luxury of staying in a top end hotel.  It’s close to several restaurants and activities and anything you need is a stone’s throw away.  We relaxed by the pool, we snorkeled by the dock right near our place and had a blast! Starfish point is only a 5 minute drive from the house and it makes for a fun and relaxing day at the beach.  
    We will definitely be going back, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a hassle free, safe and fantastic vacation.
