Hilltime is a large single-story beachfront villa located in Rum Point along the north coast of Grand Cayman. The most notable feature of this home, besides the views, is the vaulted great room's cypress tongue-and-groove ceiling. It is certain to capture your eye as you stare off across the impressive ocean views. The beach here is wide and very sandy, with superb snorkeling inside the reef-protected shallows. The property sits on a deep estate of over an acre with heavily-landscaped grounds. Plenty of off-street parking is available with room to turn around.
A small freshwater pool and elevated sun deck sit on the land-side of the villa, protecting guests from the breezes in the winter and absorbing the sun's rays all day long. Triangular 'sail shades' and lounge chairs surround the pool, plus a covered cabana and propane grill for island cookouts.
Hilltime is unique in that it has 8-foot-tall doors throughout and tall ceilings to keep the rooms and tile floors cool with central air conditioning. The entry foyer is a very wide gallery that spans the width of the home, accentuating the size of the house and the open architecture of the great room.
Inside, the open great room is a welcoming retreat after a day on the beach with enough space for the whole family to gather and help prepare dinner, play a game of cards, or just kick back and watch the waves break on the reef. A full gourmet kitchen comes equipped with modern appliances including dishware, utensils, glassware, cookware, and cutlery. The decor and colors are very soothing and well-coordinated. The villa shows that the owners care deeply and keep it in pristine condition.
Hilltime also offers a private media room with a sectional sofa, large LED TV, Apple TV, and Xbox console. Having the main TV in a separate room allows those who want to watch TV or play a video game to close the door and not disturb those in the great room putting together a puzzle, enjoying the views, or preparing meals in the large kitchen.
Although the home has pure desalinated (reverse-osmosis) water at the tap; the owners provide a five-gallon water cooler to encourage guests to be environmentally conscious and not purchase flats of bottled water at the grocery.
The entire island is only 22 miles wide from west to east, so you are never too far from anywhere on Grand Cayman.
The oceanfront homes 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. The closer you get to Rum Point, usually the sandier the beach as well as swimming. Either way, 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 also 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, nearby is the Kaibo Yacht Club restaurant, bar and marina
Lastly, we have two 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, oceanfront pools and bar service.
General Grand Cayman Beach Notes
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high watermark and the shoreline quality behind your property may vary seasonally. Be advised that the beach or water entry behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website because of the weather. The next-door beach is also always available for your use.
Ocean Debris and 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. The owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. We try our best to work around mother nature.
