THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE RENTAL ON CAYMAN BRAC

Cayman Brac Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Featherstone is the ultimate getaway. Its 1 1/2 acres of sandy beach located on a cove-like property is considered to be the most beautiful private beach on the island. Far off the roads and with no direct neighbors on either side, you are surrounded by palm and sea grape trees with nothing in view but sea and sky and with glimpses of the bluff to the East and Little Cayman to the West. Even all the telephone and electrical wires are buried so you feel like you are on your own private little island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.

This beautiful property was built and decorated with loving care and is perfectly maintained by its interior designer owner. Your day begins as you look out your double french doors at the sun rising on the water. In the evening enjoy dinner on your private deck overlooking the sea and your private garden while sunsets light up the sky. At night, lay in a hammock under the palm trees and watch the stars fall from the sky as night turns to day.

This is what island living was 50 years ago. Bring your books, your camera, your sweetheart, your stress, and let it all go in this beautiful place. Or, come alone and find how life is meant to be lived. Away from the fast paced atmosphere of an overdeveloped world, Featherstone offers a peace and beauty seldom found in the civilized world. If you love the sounds and smells of the sea, the serenity of sunsets and endless stars at night, Featherstone is your place.

This property is so gorgeous that words cannot do it justice so please just come stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything about this place was perfect, The property was beautifully maintained and the apartment was beautiful and well equipped. Minnie takes careful attention to things that simply make your vacation more comfortable and enjoyable. We wanted a place on the ocean with privacy to relax and enjoy my wife's birthday and our anniversary and we were not disappointed.The rental car was waiting for us at the airport which Minnie so graciously reserved for us. After resting the day of arrival, Minnie & Hank provided us with recommendations from where to buy groceries, restaurants to eat at and sights to see and explore on this beautiful island. For fresh baked bread and rolls you cannot beat the Pioneer Bakery. Snorkeling off the beach in front of the house, we saw numerous tropical fish, several barracuda, a reef shark, and several turtles. Another good shore place we snorkeled was at Tibbett's Reef. The museum had fascinating information about the history of this amazing island and the numerous hurricanes it has survived. We visited the numerous caves and was especially touched with Rebecca's Cave. The trip to the lighthouse and view from the bluff is spectacular wonder in itself. This is truly an amazing place to get away and relax and Minnie is a very gracious host. She truly puts her guest and their comfort first. I cannot recommend this place or it's lovely host enough. My wife and I are looking forward to a return visit to this beautiful place in the future.

Own an executive search firm for the telecom industry as well as an Interior Design company in the islands. Adore my guests - every single one of them but honor their privacy while they are at Featherstone.

Minnie Branch purchased this apartment in 2009

Because the island is still in the top 3% of clean air and water left on the planet. There is no poverty and, thus, no crime. The people are friendly and accommodating and the British ownership assures a stable government. It is gorgeous beyond words with many unusual and outstanding features in addition to the Caribbean Sea and sky.

Safety. Security. Every day a beautiful day.

A BREATH OF FRESH OCEAN AIR

  • 5 of 5
OK - so everyone gushes and gushes about Minnie and her place on the sea... Well, they SHOULD! I have joined the Gusher's Club! She is just a wonderful innkeeper and very thoughtful as well. I truly felt like a bit of family when staying. Doesn't get any better than that! Make sure to hike the north and south coasts and the lighthouse trail. If you are staying around the end of March, the Agricultural fair is a must do. Seems like all 1600+ islanders were there!

FEATHERSTONE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the apartment for two delightful weeks. We were needing a quiet and peaceful spot to recharge and we couldn't have asked for more. The accommodation was excellent and secluded, everything one needed was there. Minnie was very gracious and always available with a smile and a wealth of information about the island. Everyone very friendly, great local restaurants and fresh caught fish. Wonderful views and sunsets. If you're a diver it's one of the prime spots.

FANTASTIC HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Featherstone for 8 glorious days over Christmas. We are a family of 4, with 2 grown children. We were looking for a quiet retreat to reconnect and just be together. Featherstone fit the bill to a T!! As everyone has said, Minnie is a gem and the apartment is perfect. We also had the great pleasure in Minnie's son visiting while we were there. He and his friend were so helpful and we so enjoyed their company. The property is beautiful and the porch is a place you will never want to leave. We hiked everyday on the various trails on the island, biked, swam, and took many naps in the hammocks all over the property. It's a tiny, quiet, and welcoming island unlike anything I have ever experienced. Minnie was so helpful, answering our questions and greeting us with her warm and genuine smile. She had arranged for a car for us, which was waiting for us on arrival. The house is well equipped with plenty of bedding, towels, pots, pans everything you will need. It was, by far, the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation our family has ever enjoyed and we will return!

Owner's Response: This lovely family graced Featherstone during the Christmas season. Although their son had to leave for military training in the middle of their visit, they took advantage of every second they had together. It is always a joy for me to see my guests relax and balance at my home. It makes the work of keeping my rentals good for my guests worth every second it takes to do so. I really appreciate this acknowledgement and all the kind things that people have to say about staying at Featherstone.

BETTER THAN WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED.

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect, "aunt" Minnie and Hank are friendly, helpful, sweet and accommodating.They know everything about the island which will take one day to explore.The apartment is ridiculously beautiful, ON the ocean, and so quiet we can't tell you what it is like not to hear another human.Just waves, wind, and relaxation beyond description.If you hate crowds as much as we do, this is the place for you. Lie down in the hammocks, sit and talk with Minnie and Hank, sit in the sun, close your eyes and take in the air and sea. Barbeque your dinner, sleep with all the windows and doors open because it is paradise found. Don't bring too many clothes because you only need shorts, tee shirts and bathing suits. Go snorkeling or diving (i had NO idea what I was doing but the Brac Scuba Shack was superb and low key), and go hiking along in local caves, eat in Star Island for excellent conch and fish fingers for under 30 US dollars. We cannot say enough about our apartment and how beautiful it is. Asian influence, decorated lovingly and tastefully. Minnie is just lovely and Hank is a sweetheart and had fresh grouper for us. We are already planning next year's trip. Don't bring little little children unless they are well behaved, quiet and know how to treat property with respect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this very sweet review! It was a joy to have you here. I loved watching the two of you blossom into real Brackers during your time here - color in your faces and a glow of relaxation all over you. This is what I love the most about sharing Featherstone - seeing my guests come in dressed in their daily stresses and leave dressed in sunshine and a calmness that I know will last them until the next time around. I SO look forward to your next visit and tell Tom that I will hunt out some Cuban cigars for him when he comes again. So happy you could "make up" that day you lost in the beginning due to that storm in NY. I really am an "Aunt" Minnie with 4 wonderful nieces and a nephew to my credit!
