I rented the property for a group of four for four days. Checking in was easy and convenient. The property is accurately described on VRBO, but the glaring issue was just how unclean the property was. The property was tidy and organized, just not clean. For example, under the ottoman in the living room and in the corners of all the bathrooms was a layer of thick dust mixed with hair from previous renters.
Also, the air conditioning unit for one side of the house was not working at all. It took a couple of hours to reach the property manager, Judy, about the A/C. Her phone would ring and ring, but there was no way to leave a message. So, I kept calling. She eventually answered her phone and addressed the issue the next day. The room was hot all night but the ceiling fan helped. It was repaired the next day and worked fine after that.
One annoying issue was that the tv remote we found next to the tv did not work. I opened it up to find that it did not have batteries in it. But then an hour or so later we found a newer remote (in the kitchen) that did have batteries and worked perfectly well. So, why would they keep an old broken tv remote out in the living room where guests would confuse it for a working one?
Its not a bad place if you don't mind a little dirt but management and housekeeping here are much less impressive than I've seen at other VRBOs I've rented.
Great family home in Rum Point
We really enjoyed Just for Fun. The bay and kayaks were wonderful and the pool was great for cooling off after a day of excursions or fun at the beach. The home had just what we needed and was very comfortable for the five of us. The property manager was a little difficult to reach but beyond that, it was a wonderful experience.
Thank you for your kind words. Glad you had a nice stay. We appreciate your stay and look forward to having you back another time!

Awesome vacation retreat!
Private, pool and hammock areas very relaxing. Plenty to do right out of you back door in bioluminescent bay and Rum Point right down the way. The house was exceptionally clean and had everything we need to have a spectacular vacation. We will back back!
lovely and relaxing kitchen very well equipped
Villa was clean with more than ample outdoor space in a very nice area. There is quite a bit of construction in the area so expect some noise for the next several months. For us, it was not a huge factor but very noticeable. This home had the best stocked kitchen of any rental we have every used. Our property manager Jody was very pleasant, attentive, and helpful on the 2 occasions we had to call her. I feel she works very hard at her job and would do her best to address any issues within her power. The home was clean and was nicely decorated. Someone has tried to attend to the details. I would encourage the owner to update a couple of the kayaks. One has no seat that we could find, so I strapped the life jackets together and stacked them to make it work. A 2 person kayak would likely do the trick. The small kayak is for a child and is hard to paddle even for a small teenager. The bioluminescent bay is the real deal. One of the best things we have ever done. Rum point is not quite, but basically across the street. You will have to go there for the beach. There is no beach behind the house. If you are thinking there is a beach in the area like seven mile beach there isn't. If thats what you want you will need to stay on that side of the island. All of the beaches in this area that we found were very grassy. Starfish point and kayaking around the area were fun. There are no grocery stores in the area so stock up on your way. There are 3 restaurants in the area that we all enjoyed. We would definitely go back.
Thank you for your kind review.
Please come back soon!

Fun Time at Just For Fun
This was our first visit to Grand Cayman. We were originally booked at a villa in St Croix which was heavily damaged due to the hurricanes and our vacation was canceled. I searched for villas in Grand Cayman and Just For Fun popped up and our vacation date was available. This villa did not disappoint. After visiting Seven Mile Beach on one day of our stay we were so happy that we chose this villa in the North Point. It was very quiet but close enough to walk to Rum Point for dinner/drinks or other fantastic restaurants in the East End. The villa was clean and well stocked. The pool was refreshing after a day of sightseeing. Other high points were the kayaks they supplied which we used every day, especially at night to see the bioluminescense which was absolutely amazing. The private sandy beach was also a plus and the private dock was perfect for our private charter to pick us up to bring us to Sting Ray City. If I had to make any suggestions it would be to have the spa tub heated and to have a cooler and beach chairs available to bring to the lovely beaches. However, these minor things would not cause me to choose another villa. Our family thanks you for making our stay so enjoyable.
House is more dated than the photos
We were very excited about this house based on the photos. When we arrived, we were underwhelmed. It is smaller than we imagined and more dated than the pictures suggest. The most glaring example of this is the couch, which is just kind of old and run down. But there are broken tiles , some of the screens in the porch area were ripped and the washer/dryer was surprisingly loud. There are enough basic supplies to do your cooking if that is what you want to do, but there is virtually nothing in the way of basic food items, so you will need to purchase those and they are very expensive on the island and you have to drive pretty far to get to a real grocery store.
The pool is nice, but the "spa" part of it does nothing extra. It doesn't get warm, it doesn't have jets, and I couldn't even find a way to turn on a light for it. It is nice looking out on the bay, but honestly, if you are going to Grand Cayman, I would suggest a house on the ocean. The beaches on the island are incredible and the bay is just not something you would want to swim in. We hoped it might be at least okay for kids to play in, but that isn't possible as the water comes up to a barrier wall.
The property manager did take care of some things for us (the screens were fixed and when we discovered only 4 beach towels, despite having more guests than that, they did drop off more) but completely ignored another request. I went to use the grill and within 5 minutes, the propane was empty. I called two people on my contact list, emailed two people, and never even got a response. Nobody answered the phone, nobody replied to my email, nobody asked if it was taken care of. Nobody lifted a finger. And this exemplifies my overall problem with the house; instead of being proactive with the property and making sure it is in good shape and ready for your arrival, they are reactive and will only address what you bring up. You are paying too much for that kind of service. I definitely would NOT stay in this house again and I don't think I would book with Grand Cayman Villas again, either.
My advice: find something on the beach, ask a lot of questions about the house, and pay close attention to the reviews left by others.
I was surprised to read this review and see only 2 stars.
You had some legitimate complaints ( screens, propane, towels) and I wish you had brought them to my attention if the on-island manager was not pulling through. I never received a call, email or text (I provide my cell number) from yourself.
You initialed a paragraph in your contract acknowledging that you would alert Grand Cayman Villas & Condos (and me personally) if there were any maintenance issues that were not being resolved to your liking. We manage the bookings for 72 homes on island and we can't fix what we don't know. I am sorry that we didn't have an opportunity to make it right for you.
Just For Fun is a great cottage and the location of it on the cove was made clear to you both in map view, photography and description when you booked. This home, based on location and wood-frame cottage-feel is less than half the price of a similar home across the street on the white sand beach at Rum Point. In December when you booked we may not have had any beachfront availability for a February 25 arrival. The convenient location of Just For Fun cannot be overstated however.
The pool is accurately described and we do not refer to the house offering a "spa" in either the description or the list of amenities. The owner had too many issues with guests leaving the heater on all night; maintenance headaches, etc. It is instead connected to the main recirculation system and guests still use it for shallow children pool and for cocktail hour as it has benches with vies of the water & dock.
Judy the manager had the screens repaired and provided the towels and propane... all oversights that should not have happened. We apologize for that and again wish we had known so that we could have reached out to you with a tangible expression of contrition and apology. Our company owns a charter boat business and has other things we can do for our guests who are inconvenienced that way you were. If we had only known.
Now we have your 2 -star rating of a great house to contend with going forward...when communication with us directly (per contract) could have not only prevented the poor review...but also remedied the issues to your satisfaction.
Please accept our apology and we will work harder to make Just For Fun as pleasant a home as we can for our future guests.
Owner- Grand Cayman Villas & Condos
Toute l'île ne fait que 22 km de large d'ouest en est, vous ne serez donc jamais très loin de n'importe où à Grand Cayman.
Les maisons en front de mer à Cayman Kai offrent une eau calme et sereine pour l’accostage d’un bateau de location, la location d’un bateau charter ou tout simplement pour la baignade en profondeur dans des eaux peu profondes pour les petits enfants. Les adultes ne nageront pas dans la calanque car le Rum Point Club est trop agréable en comparaison.
Just For Fun vous offre le meilleur des deux mondes: une cour arrière faisant face à la crique avec une piscine privée et un quai de bateau, la proximité du club de Rum Point et une plage idyllique de l'autre côté de la rue. L’accès public à la plage par une voie publique est situé en diagonale dans la rue.
Le principal attrait de cette r��gion est la proximité du Rum Point Club, un club de plage public proposant une plage fantastique aux pieds nus, des sports nautiques, un restaurant-bar-grill, une boutique de souvenirs et des jeux de beach volley. Le Kaibo Yacht Club, situé à proximité, abrite un restaurant gastronomique, un bar de plage décontracté, un grill et un port de plaisance. Dans l'ensemble, Cayman Kai est un quartier fabuleux parsemé de villas en bord de mer d'un million de dollars et offrant une vue panoramique.
Enfin, à environ 20 minutes à l’est, nous avons 2 grandes stations balnéaires (Morritt's et The Reef) qui offrent des plages bien entretenues ainsi que des restaurants, une épicerie moderne, un magasin d’alcool, des boutiques de souvenirs, un magasin de sandwich Subway et un café / pâtisserie. Ces deux stations proposent également plongée, plongée en apnée, jet-skis, planche à voile, kitesurf, piscines face à la mer et service de bar.
