Welcome to Abita Kai (pronounced A-bit-a Kai), an airy oceanfront villa with private pool and new dock on a barefoot, white sand beach in Cayman Kai. The calm shallow waters behind this unique villa offer a wide palette of blue and turquoise colors as well as warm orange sunsets.
The most unique feature of Abita Kai is that the villa, pool area, and beach are all wheelchair-accessible. The elevator, pool lift, and a beach wheelchair are available upon request. It is the only larger luxury villa in the Rum Point area that offers this level of accessibility, while also being friendly for those who don’t need the accessibility items.
The estate includes a 3 bedroom-4 bathroom villa and a detached 2 bedroom-2 bathroom guest cottage above the garage. With a galley kitchen and living/TV area, the detached cottage is a great option for teenagers, grandparents, pilots or staff to live on premises but maintain privacy by having two roofs within the same oceanfront estate, all within walking distance of restaurants and watersports.
In the summer months, the homeowner offers a discounted rate for small groups (6 or fewer guests) renting the 3BR/4BA main house only—see Rates tab for pricing.
The oceanfront two-story screened atrium spans the entire width of the main house, allowing guests to savor tropical Caribbean views from all 3 oceanfront bedroom suites, including the living room and kitchen.
This home ticks all the boxes for a large, active family looking for the privacy of a luxury villa on a calm, swimmable barefoot beach but within walking distance of The Kaibo Marina & Restaurants. The Kaibo offers water sports, a fine-dining restaurant, downstairs bar, casual restaurant with take-out service, coffee shop and marina with fishing, snorkel and scuba charters. A passenger ferry service, operated by Cayman Ferries, departs to Camana Bay & Seven Mile Beach from the Kaibo Marina.
