SECLUDED OCEANFRONT HOME WITH SAND BEACH AND SWIMMING POOL; PERFECT FOR DIVERS.

Cayman Brac Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

The homes are situated on 2 1/2 acres with over 500' of white sandy beach and sheltered, private, in ground, swimming pool. There is a four bedroom house and a one bedroom house. The property is ideal for those who wish to relax in a hammock in the shade of a cabana, or those who wish to dive the wall a short distance from shore. Locals claim this is the best beach for shelling, strolling and watching the sunset over Little Cayman. We are the last property on the end of the island. Convenience and tranquilty make this truly a destination for the romantic and adventurous. We are equiped for scuba divers, with rinse and drying stations. Our water is town water and perfectly safe for drinking and cooking. A 50' x10' covered porch beckons for a cold beer or a Pina Colada while overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the sunset over Little Cayman. You have no neighbours. If you are so inclined you can split a coconut, have a hermit crab race or stroll through our paths carved amongst the Sea Grapes. This peace of heaven is new and ready for rent for the first time. We are close to the major resorts and restaurants if you need a 'neon' fix and far enough away that you can play Castaway. Bring your ipod as we can doc your favourite reggae tunes. Hands up, baby hands up......You will enjoy your stay and you will not want to leave.

Our beach is the turtle nesting beach on Cayman Brac. June through November turtles can be observed in the evening scooping out the sand preparing for their egg laying. Check out the tropicalrunaway website to see a photo of a giant green sea turtle on our beach. We also have nesting Loggerhead and Hawksbill sea turtles. Other resident wildlife on the island that are fun to observe are the nesting Brown Boobies on the bluff in March and April and the large Iguanas that live down the road year round.

The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable king bed and a single bed. There is an ensuite and a walk in closet. The other upstairs bedroom has an extremely comfortable queen bed and a single bed/daybed. There is an ensuite and a walk in closet. Comfortable beds are a top priority for us. The two bedrooms downstairs share a bathroom. One has a queen bed, same outstanding quality and the other a queen that is slightly firmer for those that prefer that type of bed. No tossing and turning all night because of a hard or lumpy bed! The house is ideal for 3 couples to share, or 3 couples with young children. It also suits 2 couples with 2 to 4 older children (the kids can share the lower level bedrooms and bathroom). I recommend larger groups consider reserving the entire property for their group. Groups of 8 adults will really enjoy being able to spread out between the 2 houses and having access to 2 kitchens/fridges.

The kitchen is well equipped.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wonderful private property on a small, quiet island. Secluded sandy beachfront. Good amenities including kayaks, snorkeling gear, extra towels, furniture on all decks and beach front with 2 cabanas. Near beach dive sites, dive shop and grocery store. Owners very helpful in arranging trip and facilitating vacation rental. Well stocked kitchen. Entire house, indoors, out and beachfront was made to allow easy family/friends interactions, yet afforded privacy if desired. Main house and smaller 1 BR home on property.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
It was a real pleasure to spend a week in this gorgeous house. It has absolutely everything one needs for the perfect tropical vacation. The garden and pool are just beautiful and the best beach in Brac is just a few steps away. Our group particularly enjoyed the beach cabanas and the stunning sunsets. The house is perfectly located in a quiet and secluded corner of the Island, yet just a short drive away from shops, restaurants and the airport. We definitely hope to come back to Tropical Run a Way.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. It will be helpful to our future guests. It was fun watching the soccer tournament, your girls were terrific. Such excellent sportswomen-ship. Your input is valuable since you live in the Caribbean and are use to island life (a busier island of course, but still island life).

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the vacation at Tropical Runaway. It's a home away from home. Very comfortable, clean and well maintained. The pool was absolutely divine. Very private and secluded. Met the Turtle Patrol on the beach and learned about how they nest and what to look for. Karen sent wonderful directions about how to navigate through the airport in Grand Cayman and we got a quick response to any questions we had. I would recommend a rental car to get around the island and to get groceries. Would highly recommend this to anyone, but especially divers. We had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Your positive comments are much appreciated. There is a lot of work and thought put into the property. I'm glad you found it suited your group. It is remarkable to share the beach with the nesting sea turtles. They have been coming here for centuries. It is more their beach. We just try to keep it groomed for them and their babies. There is a wonderful new addition to the pool deck. Shade sails have been installed that slide back and forth to give more shade where it is needed. Pictures will be up soon.

Awesome Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Truly an unbelievable adventure and therapeutic vacation. Two and a half acres of beautiful groomed grounds. Gorgeously decorated with the personal touch of the owner. It has the look of a five star professional resort but the personal feel of a wealthy home. I would like to offer a personal thanks to Karen and Ray for prepping the property for our stay. It has all the comforts of home in a tropical paradise adventure land. Never a shortage of wonderful activities to keep you entertained or incredible amenities to lounge in total comfort to enjoy some of nature's breathtaking beauty from sunrise to sunset in paradise. The trip was therapeutic and healing. I came with a cane and by the end of the week I didn't need it. The warm salt water current and the gorgeous in ground pool right outside your door was magically healing. The weather was outstanding. 30 degrees everyday with gorgeous sunshine and fantastic sunsets. There was a wonderful private beach with two cabanas, one at either end equipped for lounging and taking in the beauty of the beach. Kayaks, a little sailboat we're also options.
"To swim with the fishes" has a quite different connotation here! Right off the beach you can snorkel and only a short distance away is something called " the fishbowl". A gathering place for exotic underwater life. A first,swimming with a sea turtle as a partner! Incredible dive sites.Deep sea fishing with Ray was a great bonus even with Pirate Captain Don at the wheel.Easy access walkway into the Parrot Reserve jungle gives you an idea of how interesting and rugged the landscape is. Breathtaking jagged 140' cliffs with a sheer drop off into the ocean give the eastern end of the island a completely different look. Adventuring along the secluded South East coastline we discovered a blowhole. With the waves crashing on the coastline of the rugged rocky beach and with towering cliffs guarding our other side we continue to explore breathtaking isolated natural beauty expecting a half naked Charlton Heston to come riding bareback around the next bend. The backdrop was something out of a Hollywood movie.
Suggest a car rental for getting around to see the sights on the island, groceries and restaurants. Reassuring to have a hospital on the island.
A huge thank you to Ray for being a gracious host and terrific tour guide throughout the week. Karen your personal touch can be seen all over this property.
It can be a romantic getaway or adventure land. You choose!

Owner's Response: The time you have taken to write a thoughtful and informative review is so appreciated. Nothing helps out our future guests more. I'm glad you enjoyed the property. We are so fortunate to have a sand beach right to the shore (so many properties have some sand, but then the actual entry into the water is over "above the sea" iron stone (like a rock wall), or else they are inside the south side lagoon where snorkeling and swimming is restricted to shallow water). Our beach is the real deal with sand right to the sea and then a gradual slope into the sea (you will need water shoes once you are in the water though) that goes from beach level to the amazing "Cayman Trench". There are 7 dive sites, marked by balls right off our property. I'm glad you found your vacation so restorative.

Magnificent Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Upon arriving at our rental we were met by the owner who gave us an outstanding welcome and a detailed review of the facilities and the area. We were made totally at home with regards to shopping and any activities that we might want to experience. We were able to experience Island quisine in our unit as well as at a variety of excellent restaurants. All we had to do was ask and our needs were met. The unit was sparkling clean and the pool, which is fresh water, was always clean and refrreshing after the warm sunny days. Caving, snorkeling and scuba were all experiences that were first rate. Warm, breazy evenings on the elevated balcony, which overlooks the beach and the pool led to great story telling among our group. Sunsets and sunrises were spectacular! One of the best holiday experiences I have ever had. A great big ten plus from me. Thank you!

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5
One should take their time when writing a review for such an extraordinary place as Tropical Runaway, however, I’m wanting to get my 5 star rating on the web as both a thank you to our host ‘Ray’ and as a positive suggestion to anyone considering a holiday on ‘The Brac’.
The Tropical Runaway holiday homes are spectacular. The setting is beautiful. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. Whether you stay in the small house, as I did, or in the main house as my friends did, the amenities are those of a first class family dwelling; but as they say in real estate, location, location, location.
Situated a 15 min walk from the airport, 5 min by car, with end of the road isolation this can be everything from a romantic get away for 2, to a fun filled location for time with family and friends. Although entry to the ocean can only be made wearing water shoes, the beach offers plenty of room to play and the beautiful in ground pool allows the opportunity for ’cooldown’ dips throughout the day.
Once in the ocean the swimming snorkeling and diving opportunities are limitless. There is an abundance of tropical sea life, in particular a wide variety of healthy, and colourful coral of differing types. A short swim or walk up the beach takes you to a veritable fish bowl where the reef fish abound with their unsurpassed beauty in what can only be described as a coral garden.
All of the above are attributes of the home and its immediate surroundings, the island however, is also unique, interesting, and beautiful. The eastern end of the island rises to a height of some 140’ with sheer cliffs dropping to the sea. The interior Is jungle set upon jagged volcanic rock and laced with caves. All points of interest on the island are easily accessible on very good roads.
Of more practical concern, excellent dining and grocery shopping are a short drive away allowing you to plan your day/week(s) around leisure activities rather than regular concerns.
Staying at Tropical Runaway is a virtual guarantee of an outstanding holiday.

Best Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
As I drove around the island and looked at other properties we considered, I was so glad we chose Tropical RunAway. Great beach with private Cabana. House with great amenities including solar power air conditioning. Did not feel guilty about keeping cool during the day. We dove almost every day and then spent the afternoon on the beach. Daily ritual was to sit on the beach and watch the sunsets. Having the owners staying in the small house next door was an added bonus. They were a great source of information about the island and things to see and do. Cooked out on the barbecue pit a couple of times. Kayaked and snorkeled right out front.
I think there is two things that you need to be aware when looking at this property. This place has a great beach unlike many other places that don't. With elderly and children getting into and out of the water can be tricky. Good thing they just completed the inground pool. Nice added benefit. Although there are four bedrooms, the two downstairs would be more suited for teenagers. The two bedrooms are connected and the bathroom downstairs is not accessible unless you go outside. My wife and I stayed downstairs and found the room comfortable. The owners have spent a lot of time on the landscape and layout of the property. I really felt like I was on a caribbean island. Quiet and beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to write your review. I'm glad you emphasized how challenging it is to get in the water on other properties around the island, since most have iron shore for their water front. Our sandy beach is a definite advantage if you are a person who likes spending time in the ocean. Seeing your mom floating in the sea and so obviously enjoying it immensely was a pleasure. I am glad your parents were able to enjoy the property so comfortably while the rest of your group was off diving. They seem to love spending time in the cabana at the beach while you on your dive excursions. The property has something for everyone.
