About the property

910 Square Foot, Beachfront One Bedroom Condo With Gorgeous Views

Kiwi Kai is perfect for the couple or family that enjoys tropical open air living. This 910 square foot unit is right on the beach at Cayman Kai, Rum Point, North Side, on the island of Grand Cayman. You will be a few steps from snorkeling, swimming or wading in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Soak up the sun on your nearly private beach where you can listen to the gentle sounds of lapping waves. The ocean area at the Sea Lodges is designated a protected marine park, so the fish and the reef are amazing. Depending on the time of year, you might spot some turtles - they like the turtle grass, which is also protected given the importance of the Caymanian turtles - you will even find turtles on the Caymanian flag and currency!

All rooms have Caribbean views and open to screened porches. Two chaise lounges and a hammock are available for your use. We also supply a charcoal grill. Ceilings are vaulted to 16 feet with Casablanca fans throughout. Kiwi Kai uses louvered doors and windows for cross-ventilation cooling, permitting you to listen to the amazing sound of the wind in the palm trees and the soothing ocean waves. We also have air conditioning in the bedroom and kitchen/living area (two units).

The kitchen is equipped for your cooking needs. Subject to availability and starting with reservations made after July 1, 2017, we are including with your reservation one private dinner for two prepared at Kiwi Kai that showcases local foods, such as Cayman-style fish or beef or curry chicken, with traditional accompaniments, like fried plantain, green banana, rice and beans, etc. You can also learn a lot about the island from the ladies who will come to prepare your dinner!

There is a washer/dryer in the unit available for your use. The comfortable living room includes a sleeper sofa and contains a few books and games. This is definitely a retreat from a busy world and a get-away from the touristy spots elsewhere on the island. We do, however, supply a smart TV with Netflix connectivity (no regular/cable tv) and a modem for Ethernet and wireless internet access.

Kiwi Kai is licensed by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, meeting strict standards of safety and cleanliness (notwithstanding ownership changes, Kiwi Kai has been continuously licensed since the 1990s!).

For more action, head over to Rum Point - a short walk or drive away, where you can pick up excursions (Stingray Sandbar, snorkeling, glass bottom boat tour, etc.) and rent snorkeling, safety, and water sports equipment. You can also find a bite to eat there at the Wreck Bar (casual lunch on the beach) and at Rum Point Club (nice dinner at Rum Point).

Kaibo Beach Bar and Grill (casual lunch and dinner on the beach), Kaibo Upstairs (special occasion dinners), and Starfish Point are just a few minutes away. The bioluminescent bay is also nearby, and there are a few operators that offer night-time kayak tours, with availability depending on the lunar cycle. You can also check out the Queen Elizabeth II Royal Botanic Park (~20 minutes from Kiwi Kai), the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme (tours available at the Botanic Park), and the Mastic Trail (~20 minutes from Kiwi Kai).

About Michelle Boudreaux

We have been to Grand Cayman many times, and we spent the first three visits at Seven Mile Beach. On our fourth trip, we stayed at the Retreat at Rum Point, Unit 15, and fell in love with it! We love Cayman Kai and the Rum Point area so much, and we decided to purchase a second unit so that we could bring our family and friends with us to our "paradise"! As with our unit at the Retreat, we are happy to share Kiwi Kai with our guests!

Michelle Boudreaux purchased this condo in 2015

Why Michelle Boudreaux chose Cayman Islands

We chose Kiwi Kai because it has it all -- a gorgeous, almost-private beach, beautiful water, a great location near activities and restaurants and Rum Point (while still retaining an off-the-beaten path feeling), and proximity to our other unit at the Retreat.

What makes this condo unique

For a couple of families traveling together, we also own Unit 15 at the Retreat at Rum Point, another beachfront one-bedroom unit. Cayman Retreat 15 is about a ten minute walk or one minute drive from Kiwi Kai.

This was our 3rd time at Kiwi Kai. We love that the area is not overdone and crowded like 7 Mile.

It is so peaceful at Kiwi Kai! If you don't want to be around a lot of other people this is the place to be. So peaceful. And walk out snorkeling from the beach is beautiful!

We loved the Kiwi Kai Sea Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kiwi Kai. It was very relaxing and everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed heading over to Rum Point almost everyday and hitting Kaibo Beach as well. Just beautiful! We look forward to coming again!

The perfect place on the north side!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I so enjoyed our week at the Sea Lodges #18 recently! This side is so much more relaxed and beautiful than the 7-mile beach area (in our humble opinion).The porch was my favorite spot but the entire place was open and airy and very clean. I think I had the doors to the porch open almost 24/7 :). It had everything we needed and more. We walked the beach, snorkeled almost every day, kayaked, and sat looking out over the pristine waters of the Caribbean. We took a bioluminescence kayak tour one night that was amazing and I'd recommend it to anyone going when there's no moon. Rum Point was a favorite, of course, for snorkeling and just relaxing with a rum punch or smoothie. We also dined at the Lighthouse for Sunday brunch, Over the Edge a couple of times, Kaibo for a sandwich, and Tukka on our last nite for the fresh catch of the day special. OK, I didn't cook much (hey, I'm on vacation) but could have with all the necessary kitchen supplies there. All our neighbors were so kind, even invited us for snacks and wine! I wanted to stay longer... Michelle was so helpful in getting us there and into the unit, and the welcome book and other books on the area were very informative. Thanks so much, Michelle, we'll be back!!

Superb accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Christmas holiday and could not have asked for a better get away. The north side of Grand Cayman is very quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of George Town where all the cruise ships come in to port, which is exactly what we were looking for. The Sea Lodge is set up superbly to catch the sea breeze that constantly blows. All the appliances worked great as well. Michelle was very responsive to our many questions leading up to our stay. The Wreck Bar is just a short walk away and the snorkeling right off the beach in front of the Sea Lodge was awesome. In short, this is a perfect vacation spot to relax and we look forward to visiting again in the future and would highly recommend this to any of our close friends and relatives as well.

Wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kiwi Kai in early June and had a wonderful time! The cottage was exactly as described, was very clean, and had everything we needed. We love the north shore of Grand Cayman, for it's low key and quiet vibe. The Rum Point area is amazing, and we definitely spent plenty of time hanging at the beach, and enjoying the Wreck Bar & Restaurant. And while Rum Point is definitely low key compared to Seven Mile Beach, we really appreciated coming back to Kiwi Kai in the late afternoon/evenings for the ultimate peace and tranquility. Michelle, the owner, was wonderful to work with, and provided a ton of great information to get us going. We are a family of 4, with 2 kids ages 5 and 9, and we felt that Kiwi Kai had plenty of space for us. The front and back lanais really add to the space you have and we never felt cramped. We will be back!

Great Island, Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for an amazing trip to a very special place! We fell in love with the Rum Point area, and Kiwi Kai was great! We enjoyed snorkeling at the Sea Lodge beach - saw a huge lobster and stingray. The condo had everything we needed and was well decorated and clean. We appreciated the air conditioning, but didn't need it every night. The owner and property manager are very responsive, and the information the owner sent before our trip was super informative. Thanks again and hopefully we'll be back next year!
