Magnificent gated and walled luxury estate with a deep menu of A/V tech, guest services and amenities. Attention to detail, with optional staffing and chef options, gives Rip Kai a micro-resort feel.
A convenient oceanfront location in Rum Point on two acres of elevated sand offers our guests serene panoramic views, excellent snorkeling, and long walks on the beach. 5-minute drive west to the Rum Point Club and The Kaibo.
The vacation experience for our Luxury Platinum Collection begins with an airport greeting by a professional driver and a 28-seat mini-coach (7-day stay required). Our on-island concierge can coordinate with your rental car company for delivery of your rental vehicles to the villa in advance. Pre-stocking the villa with groceries and beverages is also a popular choice by our guests, as is having us arrange cook or chef services for a few nights.
Rip Kai is remote enough to be private, but also convenient to local restaurants, beach bars, and water sports. Private transport options are available for restaurant dinners in the eastern districts. Platinum access is provided to our private fitness center only 15 minutes away.
The owners purposefully designed and decorated Rip Kai for large, extended families and those celebrating milestone events, with luxury, privacy, tech, and connectivity being primary considerations.
The beach behind Rip Kai Greathouse is soft sand, but with limited barefoot entry into the reef-protected, marine environment. We do have some soft grasses and corals in the water to provide a safe harbor to teeming fish life. Please wear snorkel fins or foot protection when fish-watching.
The sandy beach is sloped to provide privacy around the pool area from the rare passersby, but also provides plenty of room for throwing a frisbee, football, sunbathing or taking walks east or west.
General Grand Cayman Beach Notes
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically “public” since the Queen owns up to the high water mark 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.
Ocean Debris and Sargassum Seaweed
Beaches in Rum Point can experience floating ocean debris and sargassum weed. Sargassum is a generally harmless, seasonal (late summer) floating seaweed that has increased in frequency in recent years. The owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival.
