Overview

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.

About Minnie Branch

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

Why Minnie Branch chose Cayman Brac

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Safety. Security. Every day a beautiful day.

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.

Tranquil Beach - Comfy House with it All

  • 5 of 5
Finding this charming house called Featherstone, rented out by Minnie, a women with Southern hospitality, charm & a heart of gold was exactly what we were looking for & then some. The bed was very comfortable, the home was clean & stocked full of dishes, linens, A/C, fans, books, TV, & laundry, etc. Out the window on the 1.5 acre private beach are 2 sets of hammocks & lawn chairs to spend your day relaxing & listening to the ocean. There was a store & snack shack right around the corner. Minnie greeted us all with a warm hug that was indicative of the people of the entire island of Cayman Brac. The residents all waved as we passed by & were eager to share stories about the culture & history of the 12 mile-long island, enticing us to want to stay. Waking up to the beautiful ocean view out our door, gathering conch shells, & getting massages under our beach gazebo at sunset, lined up by Minnie was a dream. This was a tranquil & relaxing vacation far removed from the full itinerary & commercialism one would find on a large island! We embarked upon other island adventures - trips to the Pioneer Bakery for coconut bread, buns & cinnamon rolls, scuba diving & snorkeling, & dining on local food & rum. The Captain's Table & Tipsy Turtle on the South side of the island were our favorite places to eat because of the fresh salads & chef prepared food with reasonable prices. On Christmas Eve there were fireworks & on Christmas Santa lead a parade handing out toys to all the kids on the island. A trip up to the Bluff (Lighthouse) to see the view & the Boobie birds build nests 1/2 mile down the trail was well worth the 15 min drive up the center road. Thank you Minnie for your spot on recommendations & for making your rental home so inviting & comfy.

Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I travelled to Cayman Brac for the U15 girls CONCACAF tournament, not knowing what we were getting into we trusted Minnie 100% and winged it.
Everything she suggested, emailed, and arranged was perfect. The pictures are exactly what you are going to experience. The apartment was the cleanest on the beach a true Caribbean gem that I have stayed at. The bakery and the ice cream place were both just as spotless and the treats were heavenly.
Hank was a true pleasure to meet, his knowledge of the island and love for Minnie is something you don't see very much in Western Culture. His energy and work ethics are top shelf for sure, anything you need, he is there for you.
The kitchen fully equipped, cooked a few meals. The bed comfy, and listening to the ocean in the morning with coffee on the porch is priceless.
You will need a car, as the island is not a walking friendly from A to B place but have Minnie arrange it for you, they drop off and pick up on a moments notice.
We were not here for diving - lots of soccer - but others said it was breath taking and worth the 3 flights from Canada.
This is a place to relax, de-stress, sleep, do some mind work and enjoy! The beach is great make sure you bring water shoes, the whole island is a reef very sharp.
Thanks again Minnie!!! Top shelf find on Cayman Brac!

Owner's Response: My only regret about having Michelle and her son stay at Featherstone was that I did not get to meet them in person. Their spirit, however, transcended the distance between there and here so that I knew from the first correspondence that these were rare human beings. I am, therefore, doubly grateful for this kind review because I was hoping that it would be a perfect experience for them. Thank you for these words to confirm what you already have told me that you will be back. A Yoga retreat on Cayman Brac! What a marvelous idea!!!

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.
