Kiwi Kai is perfect for the couple or family that enjoys tropical open-air living. This 910 square foot home sits 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 crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Soak up the sun on your just about private sandy beach where you can listen to the gentle sounds of the waves lapping within the reef 200 yards away. All rooms have Caribbean views and open to screened porches with patio set, chaise lounges, hammock and BBQ. Ceilings are vaulted to 16 feet with Casablanca fans throughout. Kiwi Kai also includes louvre doors which allow the breezes to circulate freely and obviate the need for air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped with updated Corian counters and sink, and a new washer/dryer are available for your use. The comfortable living room includes a sleeper sofa and contains a library of 250+good books and a cabinet full of various 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 smart TV with Netflix connectivity and a modem for Ethernet & wireless Internet access.
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 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, depending on the time of the month. Check out the Queen Elizabeth II Royal Botanic Park (~20 minutes from Kiwi Kai), the Blue Iguana Recovery Program (tours available at the Botanic Park), and the Mastic Trail (~20 minutes from Kiwi Kai).
Our Guests Say it Best
This was my first time to the Caribbean. I was looking for quiet, clean and relaxing...I got all 3 and then some. The Sea Lodges are beautifully kept and the location is just rural enough to satisfy my desire of quiet. The white sandy beach was a 30 second walk. The water was blue and warm. I loved being able to walk back to the Sea Lodge throughout the day 🙂 –Cammie
Just spent a wonderful week at Kiwi Kai. We loved the location--quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. Everything we needed was left for us. Very comfortable. It got warm later in the day, but the fans were enough to keep us cool.–Joan
The Beach at Kiwi Kai was simply marvelous. We were in absolutely gorgeous water 3-4 hours each day. The reef was less than 200 yards out, and there was abundant sea life for us to observe on our daily snorkeling trips. This was truly a destination we cherished and will hopefu;ly return to. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we enjoyed an island paradise.–Mare and Christopher
Absolutely wonderful!!! It was great to have someone do our shopping before we arrived. One whole week without a car or television and it was heaven. The oceanfront view was unbelievable. Great collection of reading.–Donna
Sea Lodge #18 is a fine place for easy, private, and idyllic holiday. For our time there, we had the entire beach to ourselves. Everything is laid on, including plenty of towels, and lots of little extras that made for an easier trip and fewer journeys out to the store. Good library of books and videos. The best snorkeling on the island (and we checked it out) is right outside or within a reasonable swim of the lodge. Absolutely no complaints - not a luxury place (who needs that anyway?) but cool, comfortable, and well-appointed. –Tom, Maine, USA
