Rum Point, on the North Side of Grand Cayman, is known for its powdery white sand, clear turquoise waters, and laid-back vibe. It's also known for the luxury Rum Point villa rentals that are among the best in the Caymans thanks to their privileged beachfront locations.
The villas here dot the northern coast of Grand Cayman and offer guests a chance to experience the kind of luxurious beachfront privacy that can be harder to find if you're staying closer to Seven Mile Beach or Georgetown.
This really is villa country, and so you'll find some amazing Rum Point villas that are perfect for larger groups. That said, there are also smaller villas that are ideal for couples or small families as well.
The first step to finding the perfect Rum Point villa, then, is to decide on your party size and your travel dates. While some villas are better suited to families with young children, others have accessibility features that make them great for multigenerational groups, so it's important to also consider your party composition, as well as any special needs you may have.
From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist can present you the best available options for your group. Villas in Rum Point are all privately and independently constructed, and their architecture and décor have been carefully selected by their owners, so there's sure to be one that's right for you.
Despite being about an hour away from the capital of Georgetown, our Rum Point villas are fully stocked and equipped with modern amenities.
They're also usually beachfront, with enough distance separating you and your neighbors that you may not see anyone else while you enjoy the soft sand and clear water at your doorstep.
Many of the villas are also staffed, and in-villa chef service can also be arranged by your concierge. Your concierge can also arrange pre-stocking for you to ensure that all your favorite foods and drinks are ready to go as soon as you walk in the front door.
Picture walking through the front door to find your private staff ready with welcome cocktails and snacks, all tailored to your preferences and diet – and that's just the start.
For many, the main point of staying in a Rum Point villa is to have access to a private strip of powdery beach. While the shoreline in the Caymans is technically public property, the logistics of Rum Point allow the beaches in front of the villas to be exceptionally private in a way that is difficult to find on Seven Mile Beach.
As a result, Rum Point is some of the most prime real estate in the Caribbean and is home to some of the best beachfront villas in the Caymans. They include:
Kaia Kamina: Just steps from the beach, Kaia Kamina is a beautiful 7-bedroom retreat that is ideal for families. It faces a gorgeous strip of shallow beach for the kids to play and has an ocean-facing infinity pool so the adults can watch. It also has two child suites, one of which is equipped with four full-size bunkbeds. And when the whole family gets together to enjoy a meal by the outdoor kitchen, or even a movie in the media room, it's sure to create memories that won't soon be forgotten.
Paradis Sur Mer: Paradis Sur Mer is, in a word, spectacular. From the moment you drive in through its hand-crafted gates, you'll be amazed at the attention to detail that this villa exudes. Everything from a resort-style elevator to an 18-person hot tub is designed to give you the experience of renting your very own boutique hotel. Smaller details like the separate prep kitchen behind the main kitchen, the mature tropical landscaping, the private dock and jet ski ramps, and even the security system all combine to create one of the most unparalleled villa experiences in the Caribbean.
Olympus: With its modern, angular design, Olympus strikes an impressive pose along Rum Point's famous shores. Even better is the villas liveability, with three stories of indoor and outdoor entertaining options, 40-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, and four uniquely appointed bedrooms that all have their own gorgeous ocean views. Truly a sight to behold.
Rum Point is one of the most popular destinations for families in the Caymans thanks to its wide-open space, great beaches, and relative privacy. Family villas in Rum Point are also a big part of the appeal, since they let families enjoy their own large private pools and usually also have direct beach access and shallow water. Some popular examples include:
Blue Water Villa: Located across a pristine strip of beach in Rum Point, this beautiful 5-bedroom villa evokes a classic elegance. From the moment you walk through its French glass doors and see its tiled cabanas and neo-Classical architecture, it becomes clear that this villa is something special.

Fischer's Reef: An 8-bedroom villa that sleeps 20, Fischer's Reef offers the kind of flexibility and value that families love. It includes a twin bunk suite and a playroom for the kids, while adults will appreciate the four king suites separated by a wide staircase to ensure a quiet, restful sleep.

Les Jalousies: A smaller, 3-bedroom option, Les Jalousies makes an ideal choice for couples or for a small family traveling together. Located directly on the beach, it features a private dock that stretches out 100' into the sea, where a thatched cabana and two swinging benches await. The interior features top-of-the-line appliances, marble furnishing, and a Petrof grand piano in the living room. It all combines to create a sense of romance and tasteful, understated luxury.
