SECLUDED BEACH FRONT HOUSE, PRIVATE POOL-ROMANTIC SUNSETS OVER LITTLE CAYMA

Cayman Brac Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The beach house is situated on 2 1/2 acres with over 500' of white sandy beach and a private swimming pool. 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. The 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. 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 bedroom has a pillow top king bed, that can be split into twins. No tossing and turning all night because of a hard lumpy bed. There is a large closet, a generous supply of towels and other linens. The bathroom has an extra large shower. The great room has a well equipped kitchen, a flat screen TV, dining table, and a convertible couch that pulls out to a queen size bed.

The kitchen is well equipped..

beautiful place and wonderful time had!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing location....right on the beach, but also use of the pool and sunbed on your door step. Very quiet (just the noise of the waves!) and stunning night skies! Easy walk to the local shop so no need for cars, and super friendly people all around. We stayed as part of a wedding party and it was IDEAL to have everything and one so close to each other. Was very sad to leave this beautiful cottage and secluded beach. Made good use of the beach shoes, snorkels, fins etc. Much appreciated!

A piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the bungalow at the end of August to attend a friend's wedding, and let me tell you, it was absolute paradise! The cottage itself is petite but adorable, very well furnished and equipt for all our needs. The kitchen is very well kitted out, and the owners even left a little basket of supplies including sunscreen and bug spray just in case we forgot anything. The pool is conveniently close for those necessary quick cool-off dunks, and the cottage is so close to the beach you can actually lie in the hammock on the front porch and listen to the waves. The view from our porch was like a holiday brochure come to life. All in all, I can't wait to visit again! One tip is to make sure that you have a car to get to local shops, etc. I did walk to the market one day (it took about 20 mins) but it was so hot that I roped in a friend to give me a ride back with my shopping! A small price to pay to really 'get away from it all'!

Owner's Response: Hello Mother of the Bride. I was a little sad to receive my first 4 star review after 3 years of 5 star reviews. I wonder if you can take the time to let me know what I could improve on to get back to that precious 5 star rating I have been able to maintain. The reviews are everything on VRBO.

Daydream Destination...

  • 5 of 5
Even after our week long honeymoon trip to Cayman Brac's, Tropical Getaway, I still can't help but mentally escape every day to the cabana, soaking in the smells and sounds of the waves crashing on the private beach in front of you. This was truly the BEST honeymoon a couple could ask for. The island itself is an absolutely wonderful, enjoyable place to be. The locals are very friendly & welcoming and pride themselves on being the safest island to visit... and it's true! The island is completely safe and people look out for one another to make sure "no funny business goes on". There is plenty to do on the island if you're an adventurer and plenty to do to relax & enjoy. We went caving every morning - there's over a dozen caves to explore on the island and they are all very different. We went snorkeling every afternoon and found each dive site different and unique in it's own way. Hundreds of tropical fish, rays, turtles, and coral reefs to see! In the afternoons we would nap or relax in the cabana, enjoying the perfect ocean and Little Cayman view. We would take dips in the pool to cool off and catch some rays. At night we would star gaze from the beach, which was absolutely breathtaking. There was a perfect milky way each night. It's also fun to see the planes land at night right over your head. The house is kept impeccably clean - a lot cleaner than I would assume an island house to be and the groundskeeper, Sonya is a wonderful woman who is happy to help and give advice about the island. Our experience was p.e.r.f.e.c.t. and we would recommend this property and island to everyone! The Bracans, the island, the house... we wouldn't have changed a thing about our experience!

A true gem on the island

  • 5 of 5
After a long cold winter and the usual daily rigors of a busy work life, the Hawksbill House was a welcomed retreat. Karen and Ray were tremendous hosts which further contributed toward our having a perfect vacation. Even though our flight was delayed late into the evening, Ray and Karen graciously met us at the airport to ensure we’d find our way to the house. As though that weren’t generous enough, they even escorted us to a late night convenience store and introduced us to one of the best local meals on the island—Barry’s Jerk Chicken stand, which provided a much appreciated meal hot off the grill after a long day of traveling. Karen also graciously supplied some essentials from their personal kitchen to accommodate our own breakfast on Sunday morning. Ray and Karn truly went above and beyond.
The property and house itself is charming, clean and well-kept. And the opportunity to be the first guests to try out the new pool on the property as it was being completed was an appreciated refresher. Ray and Karen do a phenomenal job of maintaining the property and creating a variety of places to unwind. The beach was immaculate and Ray’s attention to the landscaping makes it one of the most beautiful retreats on the island. He has planted a number of coconut palms, flowering plants, and other species that not only give the property its tropical feel, but also its surreal privacy.
We enjoyed walks on the beach, fires along the shore at night as well as snorkeling and kayaking in front of the property. Unlike the other side of the island, the water is calm and swimmable along their shore. And it was convenient to have snorkel gear and kayaks available for use. The snorkeling in front of the property was impressive as were numerous other spots that were personally recommended by Ray and Karen. Their knowledge of the island and the gorgeously blue waters that surround it added value to this idyllic retreat in ways that few others could so genuinely compete with.
Having traveled to other Caribbean and Pacific islands, we can definitely say we couldn’t have asked for a better location to decompress and get away from it all. Privacy, relaxation, entertainment, and the allure of a true tropical paradise all bundled into one. We sincerely enjoyed this getaway and appreciated the top-notch hospitality of Ray and Karen. So much so, we look forward to a return visit in the hopefully not too distant future.

VBRO should have a one use per lifetime 6 star rating for places like this!!!!

  • 5 of 5
It is hard to say what was best as they were all six stars: The owners, the property, the location, the activities, the relaxation?

The Owners: Karen and Ray are the best!!! They made us feel so welcome during the selection process and through our stay. We could see how well thought of they are on the island and could only wish that every VRBO owner was as helpful and nice. They truly went out their way to make this feel like our place during our stay.

The Property: WOW! The house was amazing. I travel almost every week and have never slept better. The bed is outstanding (might be the best feature). The views.. spectacular. This place was novocain for the brain. We loved the kitchen with nice appliances, dishes, and pans. Not the cheap stuff you often find at rentals. Harvesting fresh coconuts, seeing lizards and hermit crabs and world class snorkeling out the front door. We logged many hours in the cabana and on the beach totally relaxed. Karen and Ray have spent countless hours making the property a tropical paradise..totally relaxing. They have thought of so many details to make this perfect that I cannot list them all.

The location: I loved that this property was alone at the end of the island. We did not see a single person while sitting on our private beach. We were two minutes by car (you should rent one) from shopping, food, Barry's Jerked Chicken (a must!) everything was so close. Front door snorkeling with sea turtles was awesome! The sunsets and views are world class.

Activities: What do you want to do? It is there! Hermit crab races, caves, swimming, snorkeling? I only wish this property had been around when my kids were young. Perfect for them.

I am gushing with this review, but they deserve it. We are already planning out trip back to stay in December. Not a single problem with the trip, but I am certain that Karen and Ray would have made everything right if there had been. Rent with confidence. We felt so safe on the island.. The people are very friendly..I do not think I can go to a "resort" again after this experience. A much different type of relaxation.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Karen and Ray for sharing your labor of love!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. I find the beds very comfortable too and I am surprised more guests don't notice that. Having traveled a fair amount and having a husband that has had 3 back surgeries, having a good bed is essential for me. I think the advantage of staying in a true VRBO (by this I mean this truly is our home) you find the kitchen will be very well equipped compared to the usual rentals. I have used VRBO myself when traveling and have never actually ended up staying in the owner's home where they live part time, except once in Hawaii. I live in Brac about 5 months of the year and I like my comforts, a big bonus for guests.
I enjoyed meeting you both so much. As I told you, sometimes you meet people and there is an immediate connection and you are those kind of people. Your tolerance of the mess due to the pool installation was amazing and your ability to adapt and enjoy yourselves so thoroughly in spite of it shows you are a very seasoned traveler that handles the twists and turns that come with the adventure of travels. I look forward to your next visit. Keep in touch.
