We were so sorry to leave after a fabulous week here. Everything was perfect, including the location backing onto a quiet cove with the beautiful turquoise water of the ocean right outside the front door.

We loved exploring the island's various beaches including Starfish Point with starfish galore. We also enjoyed many wonderful meals (excellent seafood everywhere you go) at some of the island's great restaurants including upstairs at Kaibo for fine dining and downstairs on the beach and under the stars for pizza and other more casual fare. Over the Edge was fun for its ocean-side location and it was lovely to be able to just walk across the road for the Monday Night Beach Buffet at Wreck Beach (not to mention the stunning sunsets every night) and then to try something a little more upscale at the Rum Point Restaurant near by.

There was lots to do. We enjoyed kayaking including a night paddle into the cove to witness the amazing bioluminescence, biking, swimming, paddle boarding, snorkelling and walking the beaches. We also took a half-day excursion to the Botanic Gardens and saw lots of iguanas and gorgeous flowering plants.

But the best part was coming back to the beautiful beach house, enjoying the breezes and the view from the two-storey screened in lanai and the wonderfully comfy beds. It was also lovely to have the option of cooking in the gourmet kitchen with its high-end appliances and cookware or just barbecuing outside the back door rather than going out to eat every night.

One tip – be sure to pick up your groceries at one of the large food stores near the airport when you land as the there aren’t many good food shopping options close to the house.

We loved it here and will definitely be back!

What a wonderful place. This was our first time to Grand Cayman. We chose the Rum Point area after friends told us how much they loved it--and they were right. Luckily we chose Starboard Kai as our "home away from home". It is ideally situated at the end of a cove, famous for the night bio-luminescence display (people pay $50 CI to see) that you get to witness every night while kayaking through the waters with one of the 3 kayaks (one double) made available by the owners. On the other side (out the front door), you cross a quiet, small street and you are on the beach at Rum Point. Check out the site for all the fun things to do.
Starboard Kai has just been totally renovated with great taste and all the amenities. The owners are so thoughtful. Everything you need to make you comfortable is there-from guide maps and info books, a well appointed kitchen, to a comfortable lanai to relax in. It is obvious that the owners have paid attention to details and it shows, not only in the beautiful decor, but the relaxing, ahaaaa, feeling you get as soon as you walk in the door.
There are even flat screen TV's in every bedroom and the family room to keep children and Olympic events addicted husbands happy!
A wonderful place to start exploring all Grand Cayman and Rum Point has to offer.
There is lots to do. From snorkelling off Rum Point Beach (I swam with a a Hawksbill tortoise, saw a stingray, a lion fish and lots of other reef fish), to kayaking to Starfish Point (amazing big beautiful orange starfish), diving, visiting local sites (Turtle Farm, Car Museum) and walking 7 Mile Beach. Check out Stingray City.
We can't wait to come again.
