Check-In Time is 3:00 PM on the day of arrival. Check-Out Time is 11:00 AM on the day of departure.
Tentative reservations are always accepted. Although our policy is, if a reservation is requested for the same time period and a deposit is offered the reservation backed with payment will take precedence. Therefore in case of an overlap in requested dates our "Fair Treatment Policy" is to honor the first reservation to be confirmed by a deposit payment.
In order to allow you to secure plane reservations and avoid disappointment, upon your request we can put a 48-hour hold on accommodations for the nights you request, without any deposit. Otherwise confirmation of dates will be subsequent to us receiving the deposit payment and clearing the funds into our account if it is a credit card, check, money order or wire transfer.
"Rentals Rates & Availability Policy"
All seasonal rates do not include the 13% Cayman Islands Government Accommodation Tax, and
must be added to all seasonal rates listed to determine the total rental cost, as in the case at all Cayman hotels, condos and vacation rental properties.

If you have to cancel your Holiday Reservation we will make every effort to rent the property.

We suggest that you get trip insurance to protect yourself in case that you have to cancel your reservation.
This policy, although perhaps less flexible than that of many large hotel chains, is essential to the survival of rental property operating on a Caribbean island. Unlike most hotels in the US, Canada, Europe and other metropolitan areas, ours cannot count on any "local trade", or guests arriving by car at the last minute. We depend exclusively on an overseas clientele arriving by air for visits invariably planned well in advance. The cancellation notice stipulated is the minimum we consider necessary to have any chance of rebooking accommodations. And, for those foreseeing any possible reason for canceling at the last minute, we strongly suggest purchasing travel insurance, to cover the cost of both your accommodations and airfare. We do hope that you can appreciate our situation as independent innkeepers in the Caribbean, and we sincerely thank you for your understanding.
No shows and early departures are all non-refundable.

If you do not purchase "Trip Cancellation" insurance coverage, and are unable to travel for whatever reason, are unable to stay in any of these properties, or are asked not to come or leave early, or unable to travel due to the closing of the Grand Cayman Airport, Cayman Kai Vacations will hold on account for one year, your deposit or complete payment for your reservations or the unused balance of your reservation which may be applied toward the payment for any new reservation beginning within one year of the originally scheduled arrival date.
