About the property

2 Bedroom Townhome loaded w/ FREE amenities, BEST RATING by guests, BEACH VIEW

Imagine a retreat where you can enjoy a relaxing vacation in a luxurious setting…Cloud Nine…

Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of most other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. Guest reviews that rave about our location include, 'THE LOCATION: Perfect! this condo is situated perfectly. Step outside the front door, walk across the road (maybe 1 - 2 cars per day) and there you are at Rum Point Beach Club,' and 'The beach in the pictures is only about a 30 yard walk out the front door.”

Our 1,900 square foot townhome in Rum Point has been designed to treat you to a comfortable and memorable visit. Upon entering our townhome, you will be enveloped by superior accommodations. The townhome was renovated from top to bottom during the summer of 2012. It has been furnished with contemporary furniture and accessories to reflect the chic Caribbean style of Grand Cayman. You will also enjoy 2-car front door parking, free high speed WIFI, a stereo system, premium cable and DVD players on 4 HD televisions sets (including both bedrooms with 30+ DVD's), a Wii game system with games and the use of 2 double, 2 single kayaks, a paddle board, and 5 bicycles (4 adult and 1 child).

“Cloud Nine” is a two story townhome with living space on the first floor and sleeping quarters with en-suite bathrooms on the second floor. The downstairs boasts an open concept living space which includes the living and dining areas, a fully stocked kitchen and game room. There is a conveniently located two piece powder room on the first floor. The laundry room/pantry is conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen. Our well equipped kitchen provides a great space for cooking and entertainment as it faces the open concept living area. The dining area is located in the center of the open space next to the kitchen. The living area offers plenty of seating with a full length sofa and love seat, a 39 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, movies, stereo with ipod/CD player and radio, soft lighting and accent wall with original art work. The game room offers a love seat/sofa bed, board games, movies, 32 inch HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player and a Wii system with games.

The spacious lanai is right outside the foldable sliding glass doors adjoining the interior and exterior living spaces. You will find a vibrant outdoor dining and living area within the screened-in lanai surrounded by nature. The lanai faces the pool, dock and bioluminescent bay. The lanai provides an excellent spot to relax in the conversational lounge area, breathe in the fresh air, feel the cool breeze and watch the Caymanian parrots and other tropical birds fly by. Guests who wish to spend more time in the outdoors can enjoy their coffee and meals at the dining table in the lanai. Just a few steps out the back door, you will have access to the pool and our outdoor grill.

There are two bedrooms, each with its own separate en-suite bathroom on the second floor. You will find the bedroom amenities superior to other accommodations. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed and the second bedroom a queen sized bed and matching twin bed. Each bedroom has room darkening draperies, HDTV with premium HD cable box, DVD player, alarm clock/radio with several soothing sound options such as flowing water, waves, forest sounds, birds chirping and more, modern solid wood furniture, calming color palettes and ocean themed paintings and prints, comfortable new bedding, new lighting system and lamps, remote control adjustable speed fan and separately zoned A/C temperature settings in each bedroom. The bathrooms have new shower and faucet fixtures, high efficiency toilets, and are finely decorated and well appointed. Each bedroom has its own exterior balcony within the screened-in lanai. The balconies face the pool, dock and bay from the perched second floor. Each balcony offers a private sitting area for you to relax.

You will have access to two double and two single kayaks to tour the calm bay at your own pace. You will enjoy a fabulous nocturnal spectacle only seen in 11 other bioluminescent bays around the world. When the lights go down, the micro-organisms in the bioluminescent bay put on a fabulous show as visitors tour the bay. As you paddle through the water, the micro-organisms illuminate leaving a shiny silvery streak of water. Your paddle will take the form of a lightsaber as you slice through the night waters. The dock is open for fishing any time of day or night in the calm bay waters.

A few steps out your front door will find you at the renowned Rum Point Beach, the most picturesque beach in Grand Cayman. The shallow and clear waters and pink/white sand of Rum Point Beach make it ideal for swimming and offers some of the finest snorkeling in the Caribbean. Rum Point is located in a protected marine park, so grab your snorkeling gear and take in the vibrant views and abundant sea life along the reef just offshore. Adults and children alike will enjoy relaxing and playing in the clear, turquoise, shallow waters. Also at Rum Point, you will find the Red Sail Sports activity center, where you can book Sting Ray City trips as well as other excursions. A host of beach toys are available for rent, including jet skis, catamaran sailboat, banana boat, snorkeling gear and more. The Wreck Bar and Rum Point Restaurant provide some of the best food and drinks on the island including the famous Mudslide, Cuban sandwich, jerk pork plate, local dishes and fine dining in the evenings. Rum Point Beach offers changing rooms, showers, hammocks, a volleyball net, picnic tables and plenty of shade under a canopy of magnificent Casuarina trees and coconut palms.

All these attributes make Cloud Nine the perfect place for your next vacation!

About Adela Parlette

My husband and I have been married for 21 years. We have 2 sons, ages 19 and 15. We live in Houston, Texas. We enjoy getting away to our townhome at Rum Point as frequently as we can. Our kids enjoy telling their friends that in Grand Cayman their back yard is a bioluminescent bay and their front yard is a beach! We enjoy having friends and family visit so that we can show off our home away from home. We would love to share our island home with you while we are back in Houston, putting in time in the 'real world.'

Adela Parlette purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Adela Parlette chose North Side

My husband and I had talked about buying a property in the Caribbean since our honeymoon. Everytime we would go on vacation to an island, that conversation would come back up. But, we never pulled the trigger. Back in July of 2007, my in-laws watched the kids for a week while my husband and I went on our first vacation by ourselves since the kids were born. We went to Grand Cayman and stayed on 7 Mile Beach. The beaches were stunning and the island was absolutely paradise. Beatiful views...warm water...laid-back island atmosphere.

Around the middle of the week, we decided to rent a car and drive over to Rum Point, which we had read about online. Now, I grew up in the Caribbean and we have traveled pretty extensively to various island destinations. I have seen my share of stunningly beautiful beaches. But, let me tell you...when we got out of the car and walked around the corner of the gift shop and saw the beach at Rum Point, we were absolutely awestruck by the beauty. We had a drink at the Wreck Bar and decided to walk out to the water. The water was perfectly calm and clear as a looking glass. We were able to walk out a couple hundred feet from the shore and the water was only waist high! We began to talk about how this would be such a perfect place to come with the kids. Shallow, calm water. Nice quiet, family atmosphere. To say the least, we fell in love with Rum Point and purchased a one bedroom condominium back in 2007.

Five years later, with a teenager in the family we have outgrown the one bedroom, but not the beauty of Rum Point. In summer of 2012 we found the perfect 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome we call 'Cloud Nine.'

What makes this townhome unique

Cloud Nine offers the best of both worlds...the picturesque Rum Point Beach out our front door and a rare bioluminescent bay out our back door that our guests can explore on our kayaks. All the while you will find yourself in a warm, luxurious setting from which to enjoy a tropical paradise. Cloud Nine has a full unobstructed view of the Rum Point Beach Club. Our highly coveted location is superior to the locations of the other Island House units that face an overflow parking lot and the road. The Rum Point beach and waters are part of a government protected marine park with lots of colorful coral and abundant sea life. Right out our front door is the Rum Point Club and Red Sail Sports dive shop and activity center. While far from a wild and crazy place, the Red Sail facilities offer plenty of activities. They have a great bar and grill (excellent drinks and friendly service), a fabulous formal restaurant and a beach rental and excursion center. Right there you can rent jet skis, sail boats, banana boat, snorkling gear and more, plus book your Sting Ray City and scuba diving excursions. Most of the excursions leave right from the dock on the property. It is also a great place for the kids to find some playmates to explore the beach with! There are lots of other great restaurants nearby if you want to branch out a little. You are also about a 15 minute drive from the stunningly beautiful the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and the Mastic Trail nature hike.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay, great location -we preferred staying on the quiet side of the island It had many amenities -kayaks, bikes, beach chairs etc We loved using the kayaks in the bay. We didn't get a chance to see the bioluminicient bay. Pool was clean and a few feet to walk t.o Home was clean. well maintained and had everything you could want. Adele was awesome to deal with and gave a lot very useful information and quick to respond. Loved Rum point was across the street. Went to see Walter at Red Sail to swim with the stingrays. Went to starfish beach and seven mile beach. Favorite places to eat was Kurts Korner and Tukka sunday brunch. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back. Thank you Adele for opening your home to us,

Wonderful for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited for Spring Break with our 14, 11 and 7 year old children. This was a perfect location with Rum Point across the street and Starfish Point and Kaibu a bike ride away. The house was extremely comfortable for our family and the amenities were amazing - had all the necessities and more. Kayaks, paddle board and bikes were so great to use during our time. The bay in the backyard is truly a unique experience at night - people pay for guided tours of the bay at night and it’s available every night thanks to the kayaks and being a short walk out the back door. We also enjoyed the pool which is just a few steps away. The complex is very family friendly and we met so many other great families as well who also enjoyed the prime location with the accessibility and ease of all the things to do. Adele provided key guidance, information and recommendations which were extremely helpful and made out trip more enjoyable. We look forward to our next trip and highly recommend Cloud Nine!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Eric for your wonderful review. It sounds like you and your family had a great time. I am glad that my recommendations were helpful. It is hard to explain how friendly and amazing the Rum Point area without sounding overly enthusiastic. I am glad that you can confirm it in your review! I mostly hope that your family created the best memories and that you all never forget the wonderful and magical place Rum Point is! Have a great rest of your Spring! Adela

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Adela,

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. The place had all the supplies you could ever need. We used the bikes to ride to Starfish Point. There were plenty of beach towels and we used the beach chairs for a day trip to Governors Besch. The kayaks and paddle board were a nice diversion too. The proximity of the pool and beach were great. We had one problem with the dishwasher and it was addressed right away. We will return and we’re sad to leave.

Barbara is a wonderful property manager and Archie our handyman is very dedicated. We are very fortunate to have them! Thanks! Adela

Perfect location with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cloud Nine. The unit was exactly as described, and had everything we needed.

We arrived and were able to get into the house with no problems, the unit was clean, and had all the amenities we expected from the description. We were pleasantly surprised by the extra towels and bedding (concerned before we arrived that we would end up either doing multiple loads of laundry or use wet towels and sleep in sandy beds, but that wasn't the case.)

We used the bikes one day with no problems and the kayaks several times. The appliances all worked well, and we were grateful to be able to cook some meals while staying in the Caymans. We also took the owners advice on many different activities, and companies to use, etc., and were never disappointed. Having use of a pool was also a big draw for us, and again we used it every day. It is a bit of a drive to get groceries or to some of the main attractions on Grand Cayman, but we knew that going in and were happy to be away from the busier parts of Grand Cayman.

After we left we realized we left a phone behind, and the owner and caretaker both quickly replied to help us get it back.

Overall we loved the location, our interaction with the owner and our stay in the Grand Caymans and Cloud Nine!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jason for your great review! I am so happy to know that you and your family took advantage of our bikes, pool and kayaks. The bioluminescent bay was bright and beautiful. The moon was just perfect during your stay to see the glowing bay. You also had cool breezes and sunny days. I hope I can host your family again. Grand Cayman is always breath taking to us. The people are kind and friendly. Mrs. Barbara and I were very happy to help you reunite your cell phone with you. Thank you for your time and kind words!

Another great stay at Cloud Nine!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip last year so much that we invited another couple and we were not disappointed! Cloud Nine is a very well-maintained property with plenty of towels and amenities to really enjoy Grand Cayman. The unit was very clean and included a new coffee maker and blender, among other things in a fully stocked kitchen. There are multiple air conditioning units that work well and strong wi-fi throughout the house. The host, Adela, is very helpful and communicative with great suggestions. The local contact Barbara is also very pleasant to work with.

After spending some time on Seven Mile, we greatly prefer the less crowded beaches and slower pace of Rum Point. Cloud Nine is the perfect landing place for this part of the island -- just steps to Rum Point, and very close to Kaibo and Starfish Point. The Red Sail crew at Rum Point were very helpful and had all of the equipment and water activities to try when we felt adventurous. We snorkeled several days and tried stand-up paddle boarding as well. We felt like this was a great vacation and are very appreciative to Adela for making the accommodations feel like a second home. We hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Dear Joel, I loved reading your review. You are a great guest and I hope you come back to Cloud Nine very soon. We can start planning your itinerary for your next adventure in Grand Cayman! Yes, Rum Point is the best beach for relaxing and I am sure you would agree that Red Sail Sports, The Wreck Bar, and Rum Point Restaurant personnel take care of visitors with a very friendly disposition. Barbara is a jolly and grateful Caymanian. She is a gem! Let me know when you are ready to visit your home away from home and your Cayman friends. Best regards, Adela
