Caribbean / Grand Cayman / Rum Point
Magnificent (new-construction) gated & walled luxury estate with a deep menu of A/V tech, guest services & amenities.
Attention to detail and (optional) staffing/chef options give nine-bedroom 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 (10-minute bike ride) west to the Rum Point Club and Kaibo Beach (restaurants, beach bars, watersports, charter boats, etc.)
The build was completed in the fall of 2022. A small number of furniture & decor installations will be completed by March, 2023.
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 min). Our on-island guest services team 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, water sports & services. Private transport options are available for restaurant dinners in the eastern districts. Includes access to a private (guests & owners only) fitness center (15 min. drive).
The owners purposefully designed & decorated Rip Kai for large, extended families/groups and those celebrating milestone events, with luxury, privacy, tech, and connectivity being primary considerations.
Rip Kai offers our Platinum Experience menu of services & amenities with weekday light housekeeping, water toys, beach volleyball, beach games, and add-on menus of optional personal services & convenience items.

Beach DetailsBeachfront - 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 & 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.
All beaches in Grand Cayman are technically public since the Crown owns up to the high-water mark. The shoreline quality behind your property may vary slightly from the images on our website due to shifting tides and weather patterns. The next-door beach is also always available for your use. 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 over the years during the summer. Our owners do make efforts to remove heavy sargassum and will have the beach raked prior to your arrival. Should sargassum weed 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.
