You set the pace at Seafan Meadows.
We've been visiting Cayman Brac for over 40 years and have made so many dear friends on this 'rock' of an island. Having visited a fair number of other Caribbean islands we've come to realize that the Brac is truly unique as a destination. The isolation of the Caymans has encouraged a self - sufficient population of 'can do' people. There's never been a neighboring island to turn to during hard times. The combination of remaining a British Dependency and the more recent successes in off-shore banking and tourism has resulted in a standard of living that rivals any developed society. Education and civility are taken very seriously.
What really separates Cayman Brac, though, is that it has not been ruined by 'tourism development'... There have never been more than two modest resorts or the large condominium projects that can so spoil a culture. The people of the Brac are pleased to meet you and are glad to make your visit as special as their island home truly is.
This home and property are legend on the island! From the winding driveway (Why wouldn't you just cut it straight?!) to the massive roof beams... and 'so many windows!' When we realized it was time for 'a place of our own' we looked at every option, every property. Finding Seafan Meadows brought home the realization that we'd be hard pressed to better design our second home... and there's nothing even close on the island! Originally designed and built in the late 80's by architect Robert Poyas as his 'dream home,' every attention was made to the details that make it perfect. We took the attitude that since this is first and foremost our home, that we'd go ahead and furnish / equip it with that in mind. The result is that Seafan Meadows offers pleasant surprises everywhere you turn. You'll find everything you need... and more!
Karl, Larry and I just returned to a cold, rainy Washington state after two lovely weeks at Seafan Meadows. We had a great time. Your house and property are perfect. Everything - the gravel in the yard, the pool and shades, the BBQ, the beach, all the wonderful stuff in the kitchen, the fans in the bedrooms - it was just very easy to stay and hard to leave.
The diving was great - many of the sites are as good or better as those in Little Cayman. Unfortunately, we didn't snorkel much because it was very windy for most of our stay.
So we just had to hang around by the pool and beach and read - hmmmm.
What can I say, sea fan meadows was amazing. Everything that the VRBO stated was correct. The moment we arrived at the airport, Derwin was there to greet us. We stayed at Sea Fan Meadows for 14 days, the house was so nice and comfortable. We sat out by the ocean every morning and evening. The fully equipped kitchen was amazing, we cooked most of our meals at the house, but did go out several times to try the local restaurants. Make sure you get a few meals from Barrys Golden Jerk, he is a very sweet man and what a cook, we bought a few trigger fish and Barry cooked them for us. Derwin took us on a fishing guided trip over to Little Cayman and that was amazing, he is a great guide and we made a great friend. We attended church on the Island and that was amazing meeting other believers. We snorkeled, kayaked, rode bikes all over the Island, fished right out in front of Sea Fan Meadows as well. The people on Cayman Brac are so friendly, if they waved and did not think you saw them, they would honk there horn to make sure. The groceries and gas were a bit pricey but Hey, well worth the trip. Cha Che was great with all the questions we had before we arrived on the Island. A must stay at Sea Fan Meadows. We will return for sure. Thanks Cha Che for the beautiful home.
Fantastic home to enjoy the beautiful island of Cayman Brac. Spectacular views from every window in this home. From views of the ocean to tropical island foliage. Spent our time scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing and relaxing. Having a fulling stocked kitchen enabled us to cook our fresh caught fish, create meals that were enjoyed on the patio. The accommodations this home offered encircled us in island living, and comfort. We will be returning to this home and island paradise again. Thanks for sharing this home with us.
We highly recommend this beautiful home for a restful and fabulous stay on Cayman Brac. Our family of four went diving for the week, cooked every evening and biked. The house is beautiful, incredibly private and quiet, and has a gorgeous view of the sea with every amenity you could possibly want on vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the addition of bicycles and van make the vacation as easy as one could possibly want. What a find!
the home is amazing..great art everywhere.. books galore.. views spectacular..great snorkeling right in back..bring your water shoes !! beach treasures every where..exploring the island is great thanks to the use of their van!!truely paradise here..the house is so comfortable we do not want to leave...Karl Cha Che and family..thank you for sharing your treasure!!..ps magic jack was also another great perk of house..all was great!!thanks again!!
We arrived at Cayman Brac on a Sunday afternoon and were met promptly by Derwin. What a charming man! He had the vehicle ready for us and gave us a quick tour of the property. After that, we were on our own. The house is stellar. The long winding driveway leaves you feeling well isolated from the rest of the world. The closest neighbors are a good walk away and are not visible from the house. All of the features in the house lived up to our expectations! The Wifi was fast and reliable, the MagicJack telephone worked perfectly for everyone at the house... unless you try to call Alaska (Our home). Lower 48 numbers worked without a problem, but in order to call Alaska we relied on Skype. The Kitchen is stunning. The bedrooms were incredible, and the pool left us speechless. The pool was our private oasis. We spent more time at the pool than doing anything else the entire week.
We did cruise the island and saw some amazing sights. The view from the bluff is incredible! We swam out to the scuttled ship Tibbetts (a long swim for a snorkeler). The reef in front of the house provided hours of fun! At the reef in front of the house we saw so many fish and corals! We even saw a stingray one day. Everyplace we snorkeled we saw new amazing sights. On a very hot Wednesday, we arranged a fishing excursion with Derwin. What an amazing time! We did hand line fishing and caught Trigger, Snapper, and yellow tail(?). On the way back from Little Cayman, we trolled some lines and each caught a tuna! It was incredible.. and all tasted very good for dinner that evening!
Overall I cannot stress how amazing this property is. It not only lived up to our expectations.. it exceeded them, The owner is very responsive, and Derwin (on island help) is incredible. The house is clean and well maintained
As for restaurants... Aunt Sha's has been renamed to Island Star and has the most incredible Conch fritters ever! The bar food at Brac Beach Resort is an awesome choice as well.
If you stay at this property.. you will be pleased. We are already discussing our next trip!
I explained to the owner that we were going to Cayman Brac in search of a place to retire. She gave me a lot of helpful information. I loved it at Cayman Brac, however my wife said she wanted a sandy beach. The Brac has few sandy beaches. This house was very nice, having a car to drive while there saved us the cost of a rental and gave us the ability to see ever part of the island. My daughter thought having internet access was great.
This vacation was different than any vacation we have had in the past. It was so quite and slow paced. If you are looking for a comfortable house that has all the comforts of home and a view to die for, this is it.
Bamboo Bay; handy to everything on Cayman Brac... mid - island on the North shore, within walking distance of the main crossroad. The 150' bluff and settlement of Spot Bay to the East, sunsets to the West.
On 2 acres of preservation property, attracting a flock of Cayman Brac parrots from the bluff to feed nearly every afternoon, Seafan Meadows offers you a wonderfully private seclusion (no neighbors in sight,) while being handy to wherever you might (ad)venture. You're not alone if you wish for fishing, diving or offshore snorkling. Fantastic excursions await with the 20' 115 HP boat, captained by our partner, a certified dive-master and lifelong local fisherman; diving trips where you call the shots... ready to move on? Let's go!
