My husband and I stayed here with our boy/girl twin 9 year olds, my mother and sister in-law, and 17 year old nephew. We loved every minute here! We walked in and couldn’t believe the amazing view. Everything is in great condition. Kitchen is very large and ample space for all, indoors and out.
Two helpful tips: Be sure to double check the clothes washer 5 mins after starting. We started it twice and found that for whatever reason it didn’t always start as expected. Not a big deal(and could very well have been our error), just something to be mindful of. Second tip, the yellow kayaks are not the 2 kayaks included with rental. There are 2 single person kayaks included with home and these are housed under pool deck.
We snorkeled out to the reef every single day. A little rough getting in, but wearing socks solved for that pretty well(wearing socks with flippers helped prevent blisters too). We did a lot of snorkeling! Variety of marine life is incredible. We did find the current to be exceptionally strong one day, so recommend rum point on those days if snorkeling with kids.
We fished here every morning and evening, as our son is an avid little fisherman. There was one rod/reel available in garage. We didn’t use it though, as we brought everything with us from home. He caught many varieties(all catch & release).
Pool and hot tub were wonderful to relax and play. The lights in pool and hot tub were a fun touch at night. Floats/sand toys are available. No need to pack or buy. There were also several 1 piece all-in-one mask with snorkel, bikes, and other items available for use in garage.
Rum Point is a very short walk or drive. Husband and I ran every morning and enjoyed watching the crabs move off the road as we ran by. There is one small grocery store nearby for last-minute needs, Chisholms. Also, there’s a gift shop at rum point with water proof covers for phone if you happen to forget one. Came in very handy!
Recommend stingray city, bioluminescence tour, early morning trips to star fish point, and having a car to freely drive around the island. We fished all over, including multiple charters, and the kids favorite was from shore at the small fishing market in Georgetown. The men working fish market will provide bait and help to get a tarpon on the line for the kids to reel in. Was incredible to watch them reel in these beautiful monsters! We paid only $20 per child for this.
LOVE this home!
The house was beautiful with a tremendous location to enjoy the sounds of the beach and incredible views. The house itself was plenty spacious for our party of six. Only suggestion would be to upgrade the couches as they are getting a bit worn, but still adequate. All other ammentities are tremendous. They delivered a brand new hot tub while we were there. That made our week!
We had a great time and enjoyed our time on Grand Cayman and our stay at Kai Vista!
We loved our time at this house that sits right on the ocean. The house is very well equipped and outdoor/ indoor space is just perfect. Great view. And, if you like snorkeling, it is amazing. The house is located in a good spot . Very quiet, secluded neighborhood. The seashore shalow and uneven, but very pleasent once you get in.
We can say only positive about the house.
Staff was really nice and accommodating.
We are hopping to visit soon.
Kai Vista did not disappoint! What a beautiful slice of paradise. The villa is beautifully appointed, beds quite comfortable, lots of spaces inside and out to split up and have some privacy from the rest of your party if you’d like. In January, it was wise to pay the extra amount to have the pool heater turned on! Unfortunately, the hot tub motor seized up right before we got there, so it was not operational, which was a disappointment. You definitely need some type of splash shoes to walk into the ocean from in front of the villa and down the beach to Rock Point, where there is a sandy beach, good swimming and a bar/restaurant. You can check out snorkel equipment at no extra charge at Silver Thatch and would recommend you do that when you stop to check in so you don’t have to make a trip back down. There are kayaks at the property, but a call to the manager’s office failed to get us the combination to unlock them and they didn’t seem to know where the paddles were. We didn’t pursue it further, but this could be made easier for the guests. I might suggest the owners list the amenities at the villa, such as: shampoo, conditioner, soap, hand lotion, and hair dryers. There is also a nice array of kitchen equipment such as a Keurig, coffee maker with filters, blender, etc. We ordered dish soap, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent, none of which we needed as they were all provided as well. Many spices such as salt & pepper were already there, which was a nice touch. You may want to bring zip lock bags, chip clips, etc so you don’t have to buy them there. A rental car is a must, although we had been to the island before and had already seen many of the attractions, we didn’t feel the need to go exploring once we got to the villa. It was so very nice to be a bit secluded, not hassle with noisy hotel guests or fight for a place at the pool or beach. We just wanted to stay at the villa and enjoy the solitude while having our own “home” to run in to, get a drink, fix lunch, and enjoy the warm weather. We also had Eddie go grocery shopping for us in advance, so we had plenty of food on hand and chose to stay and eat in most of the time. While it was expensive, it was well worth it to us! Also, Chisolm’s market is a short drive from the villa, around 5 minutes, if you need munchies, sunscreen, local fruit, or alcohol. So, all in all, it is a wonderful place and well worth the trip. Thanks to the owners for opening up their home to VRBO guest
Thank you for your review. I wish you had contacted us about the kayaks. They are not owned by the owner, but by Silver Thatch Guest Services. We could have offered you a discounted rate, added to your reservation and had the codes to you in no time!
Please come back soon! The owner would love to have you back!!!

Great place to relax
Great location, the pool was cloudy when we got there (which was disappointing) but they came out and worked on in the next morning. Clean house, happy with the stay
More than wonderful
Had 4 couples sharing this home. All of us we more than impressed. The amount of amenities in the kitchen was surprising and appreciated when fixing meals. We all said we would love to go back again someday.
The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman. The homes on the oceanfront in Rum Point offer great reef protected snorkeling. The beaches usually have plenty of white sand, but can also have spots of rocky “ironshore” with natural rock formations.
Kai Vista's beach changes with each passing storm. It can be well covered and sandy at times and then have rugged ironshore in the water at others--just a function of its location on the island. The beach here is "public" in that you can use the water entry on the adjacent lots or walk as far as you want east or west.
With the abundant marine life we have in the water you will want to wear pool shoes or fins for foot protection. The prevailing trade winds from the east make flying insects less of a nuisance��many of the homes in Rum Point don’t even need a screened porch.
The big draw to this area is the proximity to the Rum Point Club, a public beach club that offers a fantastic barefoot beach, many water sports, a restaurant bar and grill, a gift shop, and pick-up beach volleyball games. Also near Rum Point is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina
Lastly, we have 2 large resorts in the east end (Morritt's and The Reef) that offer manicured beaches as well as restaurants, a modern grocery store, liquor store, gift shops, a Subway sandwich shop, and a cafe/pastry shop. These two resorts also offer scuba, snorkel trips, jet skis, windsurfing, kiteboarding, ocean front pools and bar service.
