Caribbean / Grand Cayman / Cayman Kai

Welcome to Kaiku, arguably the most lavish gated estate in all of Cayman Kai.

up to 7
up to 15
Min. Nights


This sprawling villa sits on a double lot consisting of a five bedroom main house, and a detached two bedroom guest cottage. This luxurious estate can accommodate 15 guests making it the perfect island retreat for a large family vacation, or a relaxing adults getaway.

Vacationing at Kaiku provides guests with the utmost privacy. The main house is not visible from the road or the gated driveway. With no neighbors on either side and a lush sixteen-foot tall palm privacy hedge, guests can relax in complete seclusion throughout their stay.

Situated on a serene cove in Cayman Kai, guests will enjoy calm waters excellent for paddle-boarding and kayaking, and minimal trade winds in the winter. With the Rum Point Club a mere 300 yards up the street and the Kaibo Marina a short 5-10 minute walk away, guests can relish the best of Cayman Kai.

Kaiku’s Unique Outdoor Features

  • Large private beach with vibrant tropical landscaping, manicured grounds, and exterior lighting system
  • Spacious freshwater pool (with optional pool heat available in the winter) and poolside (heated) spa
  • Expansive pool deck with plush sectional sofa, canopy daybed, reclining chaise loungers, and patio umbrellas, plus an outdoor shower and half bath
  • Poolside kitchen with a propane grill, sink, fridge, ice maker, and ample counter space
  • Alfresco dining gazebo with table and seating for 4
  • 2 complementary tandem kayaks provided (signed waiver required)
  • Large private dock with thatched cabana, outdoor shower, floating jet ski dock, and water entry stairway

With Kaiku's large dock, guests can rent a boat, Hobie cat, or jet skis and simply moor them behind the villa. Alternatively, should you arrange a chartered cruise or snorkel safari you and your party can be picked up and dropped off from your own dock! No trips to the public docks necessary.

The main five bedroom house features an open concept design with vaulted ceilings and plenty of large windows allowing natural light to fill the home.

Upon entering the home, you can’t help but gaze across the great room out on to the screened porch with sweeping water views of the cove. A modern kitchen, complete with gourmet appliances, overlooks the dining area and sits adjacent to a sunken living area making it the perfect spot for vacationing chefs to entertain while serving up a home-cooked meal.

With four bedrooms located on the upper floor, two on each wing of the home, and one bedroom on the lower level, guests will have plenty of room to unwind at the end of the day.

A nursery, with an attached private zen garden, is located on the lower level. Perfect for guests with infants and toddlers, the nursery comes furnished with two cribs, a toddler bed, changing table and a nursing rocker.

Kaiku’s Unique Interior Features

  • Media Room on the lower level furnished with sectional sofa, flat screen TV, video game console and sliding door access to the pool deck
  • Home office on the upper level with ocean views and furnished with two desks, all-in-one printer and scanner, small couch, coffee table, and flat screen TV
  • Interior and exterior home audio system
  • Home security system with exterior cameras and gated driveway
  • Laundry room with double washer and dryer, and overflow fridge
  • Flat screen TVs throughout the home with HD cable programming

Equally impressive and cozy is Kaiku’s two bedroom guest cottage. Beautifully furnished with sleek decor, the guest cottage sleeps an additional six guests or four adults max.

Kaiku’s Guest Cottage Amenities

  • Floor to ceiling windows along the kitchen and living areas overlooking the gardens and pool deck
  • Small kitchenette with fridge, microwave, electric range, standard appliances, and breakfast bar
  • Open concept living area with sofas and coffee table, and small dining area with seating for 6
  • Central A/C, WiFi, washer and dryer, and flat screen TV

Of course, the guest cottage is never rented out separately during your stay. It is there should your group expand and you need to add it at the last minute.
