About Jim Rankin

We live in Pennsylvania and enjoy the comforts of our country home which rests on 10 acres. We live close to our children and grandchildren and travel often. We spend 3 months a year on the island so we get it enjoy it to its fullest.

Our most recent trip was to China, My wife, two adult children and myself visited late fall of 2014, it was a great trip. We spent two weeks seeing key sites between Shanghai to Beijing and several cities in between via air and high speed train. The Great Wall, Tenement Square and The Forbidden City in Beijing, Terracotta Army in Xi'an, The Bund in Shanghai with over 400 high rises, and then West Lake in the City of Hangzhou. Great Trip!

In September of 2016 my Cora & I will be celebrating our 40th anniversary. We will come to the Caymans for a week, then Jamaica & then a weeks cruise to 4 ports in Cuba.

I am a phoneman, installing and maintaining Business Phone Systems nationally. We at Telcom Systems & Services have just entered our 18th years of this family run business. My wife, Son Raymond and Kim have the fortune of working together. This I am so thankful for as our kids got to see who I am and possibly why. At the same time I get to watch them grow as a person. Ray has been here for 12 years now and Kim over 15. Cora has been here for the long haul, as she has supported my career from the start as I have been in the industry since 1974, 42 years now!

Jim Rankin purchased this villa in 2010

Why Jim Rankin chose World

We had visited the island and happened to drive by this magnificent home. We had no intension at the time to buy a second home - the idea of having one out of the country and at a price over a million dollars was definitely not on the agenda. We did an abrupt u-turn when we saw the sign, Model Home for Sale, Come In, and that we did ! We purchased the home in 2010 and have been delighted with this Retreat every since, you will do the same.

What makes this villa unique

The views are so remarkable, you can spread your arms out wide and that is about the view you will see, 150 degrees. Listen to the waves come in while relaxing in one of two master suites, each with its own over-sized walkout patio. You will have plenty of room in these 17x17 masters with king sized beds. You can see the ocean while laying in bed. The third bedroom is equipped with a queen sized bed and a walkout to the pool deck. All Rooms are 10' tall, have Hunter Fans with beautiful high vaulted ceilings, further adding to its already spaciousness of 3000 square feet. There are 7 Sliding Glass Doors, one in each bedroom, two in the dining room and two in the family room. Each is over-sized at 12 feet wide and 8 feet high, providing a wonderful view of the ocean from every room in the house. Enjoy swimming in the pool - a nice bbq or just spending time of the spacious pool deck or gazebo as the views are magnificent as you can see the ocean from there while enjoying the wide open skies and ocean at just 13 feet above sea level and just 50 feet from the water. You will find yourself just sitting in amazement in this truly one of a kind home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We feel so fortunate to have recently had the opportunity to spend 3 glorious weeks at Endless Breeze – our first visit to Grand Cayman.

My husband and I are nurses (me retired) and, when we travel, we look for a vacation home that is safe, private, very clean, comfortable, pleasing to the eye, well-appointed, that has a great view, a comfortable bed, and air conditioning. Endless Breeze did not disappoint! Jim is wonderful to work with – so accommodating, and helpful. And Perlene is a doll – so nice, and responsive to our every need.

We enjoy sitting outside with our morning coffee, and sitting outside in the evening, reading, while we enjoy a beautiful view. The gazebo at Endless Breeze was just perfect for us. It offered just enough protection, even when it was exceptionally hot, windy, or even rainy.

When on vacation, we enjoy cooking in and/or barbecuing most of our breakfasts and dinners, usually packing a picnic to-go for lunches. We were please to discover that Endless Breeze’s kitchen is well-stocked with every item we needed – and then some.

We are from the Pacific Northwest, a small town on the Oregon Coast. We were looking forward to much warmer weather than we’d been experiencing at home – but, oh my, that Grand Cayman sun can be INTENSE! Consequently, we were so thankful for the great air conditioning and ceiling fans that always kept us comfortable, and allowed us to sleep like babies!

We are avid snorkelers and found some great spots to snorkel:

• Rum Point Drift Snorkel – starting at the Sea Lodge, and ending at the Rum Point Pier

• Lovely coral “garden” (not the one the tour boats take you to) – to the right of the Rum Point Dock, then straight out to the buoys. The very nice young men at Red Sail Dive Shop will tell you exactly where to go. Be sure to get a dive flag from them to use – for free – as there can be some jet ski, and boat traffic.

• Barefoot Beach (north east)

• Queen’s Monument (north east)

• Spott’s Beach (“turtle haven”) – go before 10am, or after 4pm for the best chance to see turtles

• Smith’s Cove – not a lot of fish, but calm, and so beautiful

• Snorkel trips with Ocean Frontier. Their crew is always very helpful with information re. weather conditions/wind/waves at the various snorkel spots around the island.

The day before we left for home, we were thrilled to discover that two loggerhead sea turtles had come up onto the beach during the night to lay their eggs. (We even got photos of the tracks they

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to different islands / ocean getaways each year and this is the nicest property we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The house is immaculate, Pearlene and her husband do an amazing job in prepping the place and making sure everything is clean. On top of that the kitchen is fully equipped, TVs work flawlessly as did the wireless internet connection. The home is right on the ocean and the pool was a great place to relax after a day exploring the many beaches and places that Grand Cayman has to offer.

If we come back to the island, this home will definitely be at the top of our list of places to stay at again.

Best Sandy Beach - Smith Barcadere. The view of the reefs from here is amazing and the kids had a blast flipping off the rocks into the Caribbean Sea.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had a once in a lifetime visit to the Endless Breeze and will most definately be returning. One of the days of our trip we had the joyous experience of being witness to baby sea turtles hatching and making their way to the ocean right on our private beach! The truly incredible. privacy of this property is unreal - we had the entire beach to ourselves. The views are breathtaking. Sun rise, sun set, and every moment in between!

The snorkeling in front of the property is extraordinary. There you will find all kinds of brilliantly colored fish and even lobsters! The feeling of pure calmness & tranquility was felt in each burst of the truly "Endless Breeze".

The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous with full length sliding glass doors surrounding the kitchen and living areas the views of the expansive ocean. Each bedroom has these same breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding scenery.

The East End community nearby is more calm and laid back. More of the authentic Cayman vibe than you would get anywhere else. Delicious restaurants, pristine and private (public) beaches, and water sports like sailing, jet skis and scuba diving are available when desired. There are also any type of tour that you can think of available to you on this island. When we wanted to take trips to the busier locations like Rum Point, 7 Mile Beach, or Georgetown, the drive was easy (if you can get used to driving on the left side of the road and making your way around the roundabouts).

We didn't want to stay near the chaos of Seven Mile beach and wanted the capability to explore the whole island of Grand Cayman. We all enjoyed coming home every afternoon and being able to unwind and enjoy the beach, pool and patio of the house. We never wanted to leave! I really hope this is what heaven is like!

A beautiful place to just relax and sit it be in the pool. Easy driving to all points on the island. You couldn't ask for a more surreal place in paradise.

Best Location on Grand Cayman

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the week before Christmas 2017 at the Endless Breeze property. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, location on Grand Cayman that is right on the beach, look no further. This was the first time our family visited Grand Cayman. Staying at this beautiful home was the best decision we made. The house sits in a cove where there is only 1 other house which is about 150 yards from this property. The back yard offers direct access to the beach, the cove where you can swim, snorkel or explore the tide pools, that are all less than 25 feet from the back patio of this house. The patio also includes space for laying in the sun, swimming in the in-ground pool or sitting under the gazebo that overlooks the beach, cove, and tide pools.

The house itself has two spacious and beautifully decorated master suites, each with their own full bathroom, and each has a private outdoor balcony that overlooks the ocean. Each master suite room is located on opposite ends of the home, which permits privacy for couples. For family's staying in this house, you can also use the smaller, but convenient bedroom that is located on the main floor of the house, next to the kitchen and family room. This 3rd bedroom also includes a full bathroom. The kitchen offers all you need to prepare meals, and plenty of space to allow many cooks in the kitchen. The closest grocery store is the Foster's Food Fair IGA located about 15 minutes drive from the house at 33 Hirst Rd, Savannah, Cayman Islands.

The owner of this property is outstanding. From the first time we inquired to the process of renting the home and checking out at the end, was an easy, no-hassle process that any renter would be delighted to rent from this owner. Prior to departure from our home in Portland, Oregon, the property owner provided excellent tips on restaurants, who to use for activities and where to find groceries close to the house. We had an outstanding time in Grand Cayman, and staying at Endless Breeze was the best part. When we return to Grand Cayman, my wife and I already decided to rent this home again.

We are SO thankful to have found this very special house on the south east part of the island vs. the VERY "busy" west end! Endless Breeze, and Grand Cayman, absolutely exceeded our expectations, and we enjoyed a FABULOUS vacation!

This beautiful single family home is situated just 15 minutes from Rum Point and is set on a point providing a full view of the ocean. The house itself is just 50 feet from the waters edge, and just 5 minutes past Frank Sound Road. There are many restaurants to choose from and excellent Sunday Brunches and local dining just minutes away.

Our beach at Half Moon Bay is typical of much of Grand Cayman's coast outside of 7 Mile Beach, with iron shore and rocks prevalent. Our beach itself is sandy, and there are several good snorkeling reef heads and lots of fish in our bay, but you'll have to navigate some rocks in your entry to the water. Water shoes and/or flippers are a must. Once you traverse a few yards of rocks, the water depth is sufficient to begin swimming throughout the bay.
