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!

Jim Rankin purchased this villa in 2010

Why Jim Rankin chose Cayman Islands

We had visited the island and happened to drive by this magnificent home. 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 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 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. Sitting out on the pool deck in magnificent as you can see the ocean from therek, or even when you're in the pool as we are 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.

Beautiful, relaxing and joyful

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing...the views are stunning. Site has everything you need to relax, fun and play, cooking an evening watching a sunset and a cup of coffee on the patio with the raising sun. I can't say enough...just beautiful!!! The owners take on his property is exactly what he states,,,very well maintained and all amenities. He has staff that checks to see if everything is fine and makes you feel at home. Endless Breeze gave us many memories to cherish... Thank you, Rankin family..

Wonderful house in a quiet area of the island, perfect for a dream family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 3 children (11-14). The house is awesome, million-dollar plus (literally), super clean, with a very nice well equiped large kitchen, sumptuous bathrooms and bedrooms with private patios overseeing the sea. You will not miss anything, there are even lots of books and magazines if you run out of reading material. The large patio with the pool is a good place to lay on the beach chairs, there is a covered gazebo to sip a cocktail or a beer admiring the ocean just before plunging in the pool. We also used the grill a few times. The beach is a mix of rocks and sand and good for strolling and shell or rock hunting. The small bay is good for snorkeling but entry is tricky as there are sea urchins among the rocks, so should only be done with beach shoes. The Endless Breeze name is for a reason, there is always a breeze, which is perfect to cool you off after a hot day at the beach and most likely keeps the mosquitoes away (we didn't see any).

While on the island we only visited once the 7 miles beach and felt sorry for those folks packed in those big hotels and crowded beach, paying $15 for a pina colada. We discovered Rum Point Beach, on the north side of the island, about 20 min drive from the house, which I consider a best beach in the Caribbean, with free beach chairs in the shade of trees, protected from wind, amazing snorkeling, bar and great beach restaurant, boat to stingray city, water activities. The botanical garden is less than 10 minutes from the house and some small restaurants with awesome food are also nearby (Tukka, Lighthouse, Vivine's Kitchen). My two boys and I wend diving several times (the 11-year old one got the discovery dive course at Don Fosters, which is 30 minutes drive from the house on the south west side of the island, highly recommended). Bottom line, we will certainly be back at Endless Breeze! Thanks Jim!

One amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was amazing and the house was beyond our expectations! It was just what we needed to escape the cold winter back in Philadelphia! The house was exactly what we needed for all four of us. The location was perfect, the views from the back porch were so amazing, I think we all took over 100 pictures of the sunrise and sunsets. It was definitely a bit rocky going out snorkeling in the water, and Jim was great in reminding us to bring water shoes. The house had everything we needed and more! Paulette was so great in checking in with us! All in all, we hope to rent their again! You will absolutely love this house and location!

A stunning home with much to offer!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further if you want a glorious home, lovely amenities, stunning views and all around comfort. We arrived on a rainy Saturday but the home was so welcoming, we forgot all about that! Once you step into this beauty you'll never want to leave. We immediately dropped our bags and headed to the grocery up by Morritt's in the East End since stores are closed on Sunday. This little strip mall had everything you could need for a short time period but I would suggest you get just enough to tide you over and head to Hurley's in Georgetown for some great shopping when you get a chance. Food is very expensive on the island so be prepared.

The two Master suites are huge and the views are gorgeous. We didn't use the third bedroom but it would be sufficient for another couple. All bathrooms were spacious and clean. The kitchen was super and well equipped for anything you could need to make a fine meal but we chose to grill out most times. Your choices for food are much more limited than Seven Mile Beach area but there are a few restaurants with good food. We had lunch at Tukka, dinner at Bombay Chopsticks and the Italian Kitchen. All were tasty but nothing that knocked my socks off. You really need a car for this location but Rum Point, Georgetown and even Seven Mile Beach aren't far off by automobile. We enjoyed Rum Point and Stingray City ( a must!) and did a little snorkeling as well.

All and all the trip was outstanding, the weather was perfect and we felt right at home. Thanks Jim for a glorious week in your home and thanks to Pearlene for keeping this home in pristine condition!

Endless Pleasures

  • 5 of 5

"Endless Breeze" is aptly named. However, "Endless Vistas" would as well have described the overwhelming sea views: cascading surf, thriving tidal pools, interesting shells, sand. Or maybe "Endless Comfort" is more definitive, with all the gracious spaciousness and quality appointments. Often we felt "Endless Tranquility" with the ideal location away from the hubbub, but near enough for "Endless Possibilities": superb restaurants, excellent snorkeling, the lovely Botanical Gardens, hiking, turtles.... We especially appreciated some of the very small touches: excellent knives, extremely transportable carrier/cooler, a large slow cooker. Likewise, Pearline and your "staff" were responsive, friendly and effective. Ultimately, you afforded us "Endless Pleasures"!

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.
