Overview

About the property

Beachfront, one bedroom 1039 sq ft apartment.

Mi Casa, Su Casa is exactly what it sounds like, a home from home. This is a one bed, one bath 1039 sq foot condo with a large master bedroom (100% prima cotton or bamboo sheets), a good sized living area, a spacious kitchen and a bathroom (bamboo towels) with a walk in shower.

Lovingly renovated in 2010 and again in 2017 with teak patio furniture, hardwood bedroom floor (King bed, oversized chair that converts to a twin bed to accommodate a child), silestone counter tops, unusual art work, instant hot water, comfy sofas (the larger one in the living area converts to a queen bed), fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to make even a thanksgiving dinner.

If cooking is not part of your vacation plans, there is a lovely beach bar and restaurant next door and a more formal restaurant for dinner.

Please be aware that there is currently (as of August 2017) an active construction site next door to the Retreat. Both winter and summer rates have been reduced by 15% to compensate you for any inconvenience the site may cause you. The project is expected to be completed in March 2019.

The Retreat has its own 1200 foot private white sandy beach, freshwater pool, gym and tennis court.

BBQs are available on site for your use and the beach has plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Due to it's location, we are fortunate to be able to enjoy year round sunsets from the main beach. Be sure to stay after the sun sets and enjoy the amazing colors in the sky. Spectacular doesn't even start to describe the beauty.

The ocean is just steps away. We have 4 bikes for your use , dvds, books and most importantly for a worry free vacation, an onsite professional management company.

We take comfort very seriously and you will find every chair, cushion, bed, towel and linen purchased with that in mind.

If you are looking for a little piece of paradise with all the comforts of home and conveniences of services in the immediate area, look no further - you have arrived.

Please check out what previous guests have said in the guestbook comments section.

To assist guests with having the best Cayman experience, we have also set up our own website which provides some useful additional information. You can check it out at www.micasasucasaretreat.com.

Email or call us if you have any queries, we look forward to hearing from you.

About Valerie Mullen

We are the Mullen family. Val, Dave and children Kalem and Shane. Although Irish, we have lived in Grand Cayman for 20 years and now have dual citizenship. We came to Cayman on a 3 year work contract and never went home again. Both our children (aged 19 and 14) were born here and we now all call Cayman home.

Valerie Mullen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Valerie Mullen chose Rum Point

After a 10 year search for the perfect beach location (we live in George Town for ease of work and the boys' schooling), we decided that there is just nowhere nicer than the Retreat. It is the perfect property in the perfect location. It's a quiet getaway but still has all the facilities you need to enjoy Island life - picture perfect beaches, delicious restaurants, sporting facilities and of course the amazing ocean.

What makes this apartment unique

The colours of the sea are just amazing. The year round sunsets was a major draw for us. The water is calm and shallow. The area in front of the Retreat is a marine park and is home to a lot of friendly fish.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Outstanding condo. We had a great time - had a car and drove all over the island, ate great food and snorkeled - we'll be back.

Best Property Owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two thumbs up and if I had a third thumb, it would be up too. Valerie Mullen is the best owner I have had on VRBO. She is timely in her responses, insightful concerning the island and amenities, and a very gracious host. The condo is better than pictures can relate. Rum Point is, in my opinion, the best location on the island. George Town is very busy and street signs are sparse. It is a nightmare to drive in. Seven Mile Beach is a strip of resorts and retail areas that are designed to trap tourists. If you like a quieter and more residential area, Rum Point is the place to be. While somewhat isolated, it has all the things you look for in an area, restaurants, activities, and privacy. Having property managers on site was a great help with settling in and minor issues that typically occur. We thoroughly enjoyed our break from winter. So, rent a car, stock up in George Town, take the forty minute drive to Rum Point and relax. The private beach is a real plus. We drove all over the island at one point or the other, but mainly stayed in the Rum Point area. Snorkeling, Starfish Point, Stingray City and great food. Perfect for us.

Thanks Val for a great experience. You certainly justify everything people say about how curteous and friendly the Irish are.

Owner's Response: Bill and Susie, Thanks so much for the lovely review. Just as well I don't wear a hat, it wouldn't fit over my massive head after reading your praise. Thank you also for pointing out what you liked about Rum Point as I know it will help potential visitors with their decision as to which part of the Island would work best for them. I am delighted you had a great experience at the Retreat despite the construction next door. I hope you will come visit us again to thaw out when needed. All the very best to you both, Val

Private beach right next to Rum Point is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Mi Casa Su Casa is a lovely unit with updated facilities/decor and a beautiful view of the sandy beach and ocean. You can mingle with others at Rum Point right around the corner or spend your days on the secluded private beach at The Retreat. Many delicious restaurants to choose from: There’s the more casual Kurt’s Korners & Over The Edge, to business casual The Lighthouse (the Sunday Brunch buffet here is well worth $29 CI)! Val was extremely attentive; a wonderful host!

Owner's Response: Hi Scott, Thanks so much for your lovely review. I hope you enjoyed your anniversary celebration and made new memories. Rum Point is an ideal spot to take your foot off the gas, relax, reflect and count our many blessings. This is the quieter side of Cayman but for me, it is the best side as I have to deal with the George Town and 7 Mile traffic on a daily basis which can be very challenging. We hope you come back again as we loved having you as our guest. Thanks again for choosing Mi Casa Su Casa for your special vacation and wishing you and your wife many more happy years together.

Trip to Retreat at Rum Point

  • 4 of 5

The Retreat is an excellent facility. The rooms are large, well kept and very comfortable. The beach could be a little better but it was nice being in a quiet location away from 7 Mile Beach. The nearby restaurants were decent and reasonably priced but not as good as the places at 7 Mile beach. If we go back I would cook more meals at home. Overall we had an excellent vacation and I would recommend The Retreat to anyone who would like a quiet restful stay at an excellent facility.

Owner's Response: Hi Carol, Many thanks for taking the time to do a review - very much appreciated. Rum Point is definately the quieter side of the Island so not as many restaurant choices as on 7 Mile but on the upside there is no traffic and no crowds. The majority of the population live and work in the George Town/7 Mile Beach area and the cruise ships dock in George Town. A hire car is ideal so anyone visiting can get the best of both worlds and maximise their time on this lovely Island. The kitchen has also been fully equiped so that guests can cook every meal at home if they so desire and work around the fact that there are a limited number of restaurants in this location. Thanks again for choosing Mi Casa Su Casa for your vacation.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the complex before, love the location. The room had everything we needed, bed was comfy. Construction work ongoing and they start early but it never bothered us at all and we would sleep in. We love walking down to the public access and snorkeling down to The Retreat beach, you see something new each time.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, Many thanks for taking the time to do the review and commenting on the construction next door which is an issue for all the owners at the Retreat at the moment until it is completed which is scheduled for March 2019 according to recent press items. It is great for us all to hear that guests can still enjoy all the things that make the Retreat such a great destination - excellent location, marine park and great snorkelling right in front of the complex. Please come visit again when you need to switch off from your busy, stressful life.....we would love to have you back, best regards, Val

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Full kitchen and washer/dryer. The construction next-door was not so bad. It was actually kind of entertaining when sitting out on the deck. With all of our activities during the day, we went to bed early and woke up early when they started making a ruckus. (@7am). Truthfully, it was not that noticeable while inside.

We snorkeled like crazy and that was our main goal. The best snorkeling spot was from Cayman Kai Beach down to Rum point!

The 7 AM stingray city tour with White Sands is definitely the way to go. We were the only boat there!

We went to Georgetown one day and 7 mile Beach another (best to rent a car for the time you are there). They are too busy and not for us. Rum point was definitely the way to go. People are very laid-back here and quite friendly.

Kaibo is just down the road... nice coffee shop and separate outdoor ( on the beach) restaurant. Starfish point is right there too. Rum point club is right next door. Great outdoor eating area (Wreck bar) and decent food.

Be prepared for high prices. We went to the grocery store right from the airport for snacks, drinks, breakfast and dinner stuff.

Val was on the ball, responding quickly to emails and was very helpful with suggestions. You place is amazing; a little slice of heaven!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy and Rob, Thanks so much for your review and for pointing out the advantages of the quieter side if the Island. It may have been a bit delayed but it sounds like you had the perfect anniversay celebration. So pleased the construction wasn't too off putting!!! We hope you will come back again once it is completed and really see Rum Point and the Retreat at it's very best. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience of Mi Casa Su Casa with potential future guests. It was our absolute pleasure to have you as our guests. Best regards and all the very best for 2018. Val and Dave Mullen
