Cayman Brac House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
This stunning property on the West End of Cayman Brac, BWI is a private unit consisting of a separate kitchen, dining, and living area as well as a full bathroom and private entrances.
Your tropical tranquil oceanfront vacation home is just feet from the Caribbean waters, and far away from the maddening crowds and the bustle of tourist-saturated areas. While you sunbathe you can enjoy the ocean breeze and be mesmerized by the turquoise Caribbean waters and sapphire surf only feet from your door.
Cayman Brac is a sister island to the highly developed island of Grand Cayman and has managed to remain unspoiled, making it the perfect antidote to the over-programmed resort vacation. Explore the island’s many hidden treasures while relaxing in your own private retreat. Whether rock-climbing, caving, shelling, diving, fishing, snorkeling, bird watching, hiking, walking the shore line or simply relaxing is what you desire, you will have a vacation to remember. Enjoy the peace and quiet and the laid-back island pace in a thoroughly modern and comfortable house that will immediately become your home.
Listen to the never-ending rhythm of the gentle rolling waves and feel the cooling breezes as you enjoy the warm sunshine and stunning sunsets any time of the year. There is plenty of privacy and you'll enjoy the small yellow songbirds and the island's native brown booby and frigate birds that seem to enjoy the lush, tropical surroundings. The visibility in the water is incredible and the coral reefs endless. The low temperature of the water in mid winter is 78F so you can swim all year long. We call Cayman Brac 'detox from life'. The most difficult part of your vacation will be packing your sandals and leaving this absolute tropical paradise and the fine comfortable accommodations of the house.
This oceanfront beach property overlooks the Caribbean and Little Cayman and has access to some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. Rebuilt and remodeled in the fall and winter of 2009, its 850 square feet offers hardwood floors, all new fixtures, furnishings, and appliances as well as a full kitchen and living room with a large flatscreen television with RGB and HDMI connections, iPod docks, surround sound systems, and high speed wireless internet. This unit is equipped with all the amenities one would expect from a finer home.
Stretch out twenty feet from the water on a lounger or hammock in the 360 square foot beach cabana with silver palm thatched roof. BYOB.
Swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers can take advantage of the outside shower, freshwater rise tank, and dive equipment drying rack.
If there are any issues I will be there to help you. I only live five minutes away. If you have any special requests -- be it for snorkeling gear, horse shoes, bicycles, movies -- I can usually help you out.
If you’re vacationing with friends but still want your privacy these units are perfect because you'll be close when you want and still have the privacy when you desire it.
Stores are closed on Sunday. If your arrival is after 6:30 pm on Saturday or on Sunday we'll do your grocery shopping for you - just send us a list, there is no charge for our time.
For your convenience I have also arranged a special deal with a local car rental agency for those who might desire it. For those who will be renting for seven days you will get your seventh day free. Additionally, if you pay with traveler’s checks or cash you will receive a 5% discount.
Bicycles for pleasure use (not as primary transportation) and fishing poles come with the property rental. You can also use the kayaks, snorkeling gear ($15/week) and more

About Henry Barbera
I grew up in south New Jersey in the States and always loved being in the sun by water and palm trees. I've always traveled and I vacationed here several years ago. When I retired at age 48 I returned to purchase a property. Now I have two properties one on the south side and I am renting the one on the north side. The water is just incredible and now I'm a certified Scuba Diver and just can't get enough of it. The Coral Reefs are amazing and can be experienced by just snorkeling. I can't ever imagine returning to the States. This place in nothing like Florida with its millions of people and chain retail.
Henry Barbera purchased this house in 2009
Why Henry Barbera chose Cayman Brac
Cayman Brac is a magical place where you can walk about in the middle of a star lit night and have not a single worry of crime or annoyances. Your family is safe here and you can feel it as the locals will wave to everyone including you. Very few people lock their houses and almost everyone will leave their car keys in the ignition 24/7 and that’s a fact. This Island is so special it has become a vacation destination for folks who live on other Caribbean Islands. The stars will make you stop in your tracks as there is very little background lights to dim the skis. You will see shooting stars and satellites orbiting the earth, you can clearly see the band of the Milky Way. This is a Scuba divers paradise with several dive boats operating daily. The visibility in the water is incredible and the coral reefs endless. This is an island of a thousand people but we do have a hospital and a few police officers. An officer's job here on the Island is the only job better than that of the old time Maytag repair man. They have to be bored out of their minds. If you want to vacation with thousands of other vacationers and to eat at the chain restaurants this is not for you. If you want tranquility and peacefulness with eighty degree weather and sunshine almost everyday this is your island. If you come once you'll be back. I am well traveled and retired from the US at age forty eight and I now live here full time on the Island. I could have moved anywhere but I wanted to live in true paradise and remove myself from the busy world out there. We call Cayman Brac detox from life. Many people come once and end up buying property before they leave. Come here and you'll see why.
What makes this house unique
If you see more then two other couples walking on the beach in front of the house in the course of a week that would be way more then normal. The Beach is private to the water line and all yours. Talk about you having the only footprints. The peace of the island will ground you and make you feel whole with the earth. It’s a simple and magical place in this crazy world.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I can't say enough good stuff about Secluded Sunsets AND the owner. Hy husband, I and our 3 year old wanted to stay in a beach home this time going to the Brac so we booked Secluded Sunsets from the VRBO website. We had many questions and requests before we got there. I got a good feeling about the place because everytime I would email, the owner would email back within a day with a response to our questions. Most of the time he went way overboard for us to find information that we needed regarding things like daycare, diving, boat rides, etc.... I can say that if the owner tells you that he will take care of something you can trust that he will. He was awesome! He lives on the island so if you need anything he is right there. Otherwise he stays out of your hair. He met us at the airport, had our rental car with car seat ready for us and quickly got us settled in. One of the most awesome things about this place is that there is almost EVERYTHING that you could ever want. he has bikes, DVD's, hair dryer, some food, lots of spices, first-aid kit, suntan lotion, etc... i could go on and on. One of the coolest things is that he has a cell phone for each unit that he gives you. It comes in handy. Cayman brac is almost all iron shore and rocky beaches but this place is on the sandiest beach that I saw on the island. There are still rocks so be sure to bring your rock shoes. If you are divers then this is PLACE FOR YOU! The owner has scooters for you to use. At the house are rinse buckets and a outdoor shower. Its the best location on the island for divers. I can say that because we know the island very well. Snorkeling is easy from the house. Our friends, that we met while staying there, saw a 6 foot eagle ray while snorkling just off-shore of the house. The units are new and beautiful. We stayed in the one bedroom unit on the ground level. The owner let us look at the two bedroom unit before we left and all I can say is... WOW! We have already booked the 2-bdr again for later this year. We also booked the cooking musicians while we were there and they were great. Made some great memories. This rental is located close to restaurants, airport, many shore dive sites, and supermarkets. Things to not forget are polarized sunglasses, rock water shoes, any specialized foods or snacks that you must have and your C-card. Unless you plan to chill the whole trip you really do need a rental car. We cant wait to get back to our little paradise!
