***Beach Notes***
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Queen owns up to the high watermark. Be advised, the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images displayed due to weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.

***Ocean Debris & Sargassum Seaweed***
Beaches in Grand Cayman may also experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed seasonally. Sargassum is a generally harmless floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. Although sargassum is an unsightly nuisance, it is largely seasonal in summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival.

Should sargassum be extremely heavy behind your property, we will reach out to the owner for alternative solutions which may include a partial refund or relocation. We try our best to work around mother nature.

    We were two separate families, and this house had plenty of room. The amenities are all functional, its very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked. The property manager was very responsive. We were so happy with the location taking advantage of the beach bars at Rum Point, but so happy to come back to the house with our own private beach with kayaks, amazing snorkeling right in front of the house, nice clean and heated infinity pool and a great patio with both sun and shade. It was hard to motivate to leave! This house was perfect for our group, the property managers were responsive, and all this made our trip perfect. Would go back in a second!!

    This property was amazing! Didn’t get any mosquito bites until we went to visit other people’s villas on the island. There is a propane mosquito catcher. Pool was warm, House was a perfect cool temp. The home was clean! No ants or bug problem. Location is in a laidback part of the island. Very easy to find. Would recommend again

    Coral Kai is a beautiful home! The home is nicely furnished and had all the amenities that we needed for our week long stay. The view from the back of the house is gorgeous! The home is in a great location. It's very private and relaxing! We definitely enjoyed our stay and would rent it again! Highly recommend staying at Coral Kai!

    Beautiful villa

    We were a family of 10 grandparents,children and grand children. It was exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was fully equipped. The pool area was our favorite place to hang and watch the sunrise every morning along with watching the kids swim and looking out over the ocean. You can easily snorkel out to the reef and see plenty of fish. You can stand up the whole way as it is only about 4ft deep to the reef. You do need water shoes or flippers though. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of room to get away if you wanted some quiet time. I would definitely recommend this villa, we didn’t want to go home. The only down fall was they were having trouble with sargassum grass which was hitting a lot of Caribbean islands they warned us ahead of time about the situation but we decided we wouldn’t let it ruin anything we just went through it and snorkeled. Nothing you can do about Mother Nature. Anyway the weather was great 88 degrees everyday and sunny. Definitely will go again. Make sure you do your major shopping on the other side of the island. There is a small grocery store just down the road. And another down about 20min on the east end. Starfish point is close by and Rum point. Plenty of things to do but we were happy staying right at the villa what a relaxing vacation. Diane July 14th to the 21st 2018

    It’s pretty far to get to a store for food, etc. But being in a cove with amazing snorkeling, a private beach area and a pool was worth it! We will likely be back.

    Our family of 9 (grandparents, children and grandchildren) stayed at Coral Kai for 5 perfect days to celebrate our 50th anniversary. This villa is outstanding with plenty of room for all. It is spotless, spacious, airy, has a beautiful view from the veranda and the pool is great. There is plenty of seating indoors and out. There is an ample supply of toys for the kids to use in the pool or on the beach. The linens provided are plentiful including lots of beach towels. All the appliances are like new, plenty of dishes, pots and pans, etc. It is close to Rum Point club, Kaibo and Starfish Beach. The beach is large and sandy and it is possible to walk all the way out to explore the coral formations on the reef, just use water shoes out there. Water is very calm so kids enjoyed it too. There was a lot of seaweed washed up the beach. This might be a seasonal issue but the only minor complaint. Perhaps having it raked aside occasionally would be an improvement. I also have to comment on the very friendly and helpful residents of Grand Cayman. Everywhere we went they were the best.

    The house was disappointing!

    We had several issues with the house...electrical issues, fridge leaking, a/c leaking...the management company had not done a great job in checking the house to be sure all was working fine. When we called the mgr on Saturday when we arrived, we were told it would be Monday as they didn't work on Sunday...duh! We're here! Someone did come on Sunday but didn't actually 'fix' anything. Everytime i called the mgr, she would tell me she would call me back. She never did! I had to chase her constantly! I called the office, and they were more helpful, but many times referred me back to the mgr. We enjoyed the beach, which was nice...didn't have as much 'junk' on it as did the two properties on either side...therefore, those guests were always on our section of the beach...which was ok. The beach was not cleaned everyday as it has been in the past residences. Would never go back to this house! & not sure i would ever book with the agent again either. The mgr should be terminated...she does nothing, except tell you, she can't do anything until tomorrow!

    Excellent property, very well kept modern villa. If it wasn't for mosquitoes, this would be truly the paradise. We found two large reefs right out in the ocean to the right of the property with a lot of fish for snorkelers. Large shaded patio with a gas grill - allowed us to prepare and enjoy lunches and occasional dinners. All appliances, internet, and TVs are in operational order. Since we had couple of small children in our party, we paid for a heated pool and it was warm. We enjoyed the villa, patio, pool, ocean and the scenery tremendously. We went to the Rum Point to eat couple of times. Avoid Rum Point Club, its a tourist trap, but Kaibo Bar and Grill was fine, especially their pizzas. Stingray City is a must! Reservations must be made ahead of time. Highly recommend Grand Cayman Villas, reputable and customer oriented company. As far as property, Coral Kai is an excellent vacation villa.

    Truly beautiful!

    This was my family's second trip to the Cayman Islands. The home was truly beautiful, very spacious and well-maintained. The views are fantastic, the pool was great the whole family enjoyed it very much. We will definitely go back to this home again. One small side note the home needs a new blender the current one leaks a little, perhaps it's from everyone enjoying piña colada's in the beautiful pool area. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.

    This House Has Everything You Will Need

    Being on the north shore was good for our family of 7 adults and 2 toddlers since we don't like all the commercialism of 7 Mile Beach. However, to go to George Town, 7 Mile Beach or north of there you have to drive for 40 to 50 minutes. A drive to the Turtle Farm took almost an hour. The east end is approx. 25 minutes away. Rum Point is only a mile down the road and offers bar food at the Wreck Bar or upscale food at the Rum Point Restaurant. The Kaibo Beach Bar is just down the road from Rom Point and has a fun barbeque on Tuesday nights. There is an upscale restaurant there also, on the 2nd floor. Over The Edge restaurant is decent also. The house is exactly as shown on the web site. The interior and exterior of the house is in very good condition. The beds all have very good matresses. The interior decor of the house is very nice, with great wall hangings and nautical nick nacks throughout. The snorkeling is decent out to the breakers from the house beach. We saw a 4 ft. reef shark, a small barracuda, a spiny lobster, conch, stingray, and many different fish. Although the house is quite good, some of the info given to us by the management company was incorrect. The lock box number we were given did not open the lock box. Luckily the front door was unlocked when we got there. We were informed that house keys would be on the counter inside the house, but that was not the case. We were also led to believe that someone would meet us at the house to fill us in on house and local details. No one met us. The dish TV system was not working properly when we arrived and management promptly sent someone (twice) to assist with that problem. The 2nd effort got the TV's going and we were given the correct lock box number and a house key. I would definitely rent this house again.

    The property was beautiful, and well maintained. Lacking were towels and decent kitchen equipment. In a rental in this price range, one would expect a sharp knife..a blender that worked..a very large soup pot..rubber spatula as well as more than one washcloth, towel, and hand towel per person. Our experience with the refrigerator was time consuming and had to throw away milk, cottage cheese, etc. It was not handled quickly by the careperson until we e-mailed Jim. Fortunately we enjoyed the beach and pool and the other aspects of the house.

    Great location, plenty of room for a large group, great covered area by the pool which is wonderful for watching the sun rise. Kitchen is lacking with cooking utensils. Excellent area to snorkel and a dive sight is directly in front of the home. I would recommend this home to friends and family.
