SPECTACULAR VIEWS, EXCELLENT SNORKELING, AMAZING SUNSETS, OCEAN FRONT

Cayman Brac House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The location of Barcadere provides a perfect example of the Brac's diverse shoreline. A short path from the house leads to a small cove called the Barcadere, (how the house got it's name) carved out of the molten lava rock by the Caribbean Sea. The cove is about 12x30 feet and 10 feet deep and is protected from the ocean’s waves. A swimming pool ladder provides an easy entrance and exit for snorkeling, diving or just swimming for all ages. Two sea-pools surge in rhythm, each supporting a unique set of aquatic inhabitants, connected by underwater channels to the Barcadere. You’ll notice the sound of the shore itself, gurgling, softly resonating under you, literally breathing with the sea. The magic of this porous shoreline begins.

To the west the expansive, easy to stroll solid rock shore leads you to a larger, wilder cove powering the blow holes where the seas are funneled under the rock to erupt in wave geysers, sometime 20’ high! Further on, the shore adds sand and shells for beach-combing, and then finally to a rare, natural pure sand beach where sea turtles lay their eggs each year.

To the east the shore offers tidal pools and an easy walk to the cut, a man made inlet cut into the ironshore. Originally created to shelter boats, this natural saltwater 'swimming pool' is now used by swimmers, snorkelers and divers to access deepwater diving and snorkeling.

Directly in front of the house, approximately 100 yards off shore, is the coveted dive site of the Captain Keith Tibbitts...a Russian frigate sunken to provide an exceptional artificial reef. It is only diveable Russian military sunken vessel in the Western Hemisphere. In addition, about 50 yards to the left of the Barcadere is another sunken vessel used as a diving/snorkeling destination, with an abundance of sea life, including sting rays, sea turtles and multitudes of coral reef fish.

In the evening just sit back on the patio and catch the most wonderful sunsets you will ever see. Each one unique with the various tropical cloud formations that illuminate the sky in reds, pinks and purples until it eventually succumbs to total darkness, illuminating the solar system in a spectacular way.

This special property is very handy to the airport, grocery store, gift shops, restaurant, bank, liquor store and doctors' offices. Like to explore? Go to the bat caves, take the parrot walk, find ‘Blackfoot’, our neighborhood iguana, check out the light house on the bluff where you might have a sighting of the brown booby bird, hike up and into Peter's Cave where islanders went to survive the great hurricane of 1932, or go to the recreation park just a few minutes’ walk from the house. The area offers an abundance of natural wonders sure to delight guests of all ages.

The house has been privately enjoyed by our family since 1978. It has recently been completely refurnished and refitted to make your visit easy! The set-up is simple, you begin to unwind as soon as you cross the threshold. Our island born partner Derwin meets your flight. He can prearrange your vehicle needs so your car will be waiting. The house is spotless, the linens fresh, the kitchen is equipped with all the utensils needed, connected to a great room with spectacular panoramic views.

Divers Getaway

Comfortable, clean -great vacation spot right on the water. Quiet, we all felt very safe and secure. Derwin met us at the airport and addressed any issues that we had, which were few and very minor (a clogged drain). The yard was beautifully kept with comfortable lawn furniture and entertaining decorations. The house was well stocked with games for entertainment. The beds were comfortable, and the house was clean and well kept. Having use of the car was a real bonus! For scuba divers, the wreck of the Tibbetts is within swimming distance, and several dive sites are accessible close by, with great diving/snorkeling right out your front door. We most definitely plan to be back!

Words cannot fully describe the view this property has. Hands down it offers the best view on the island, especially at sunset. The property description and images were accurate. The rooms are spacious and the house is very clean. I loved the open living room, because it was the perfect place to cool down after a day of activities in the sun. The property has a sand area and the iron shore, which not all houses have to offer. There are also two sunken ships and multiple other amazing places to snorkel right off the shore of this property. The house does have a car, which is perfect for making trips to the market or around the island. I recommend snorkeling (the house has gear) and hiking. I loved staying here, it was the perfect vacation.

Location, location, location, Barcadere is it!. Amazing sunsets, excellent snorkeling right out the front door, private, mesmerizing views, aqua blue, clear water, palm trees. If you like any of these things you will love it here.
Be sure to seek out the local jerk chicken and serve with ample piña coladas. Scuba diving was some of the best we've ever done and coincidentally the best dive sites are also right in front of the house. We loved it!

I stayed at this house for ten days and LOVED every day of it! The house itself is a great size, and all of the rooms are very cozy. The backyard, though, was by far my favorite part--the location of the house could not be more ideal! Between the snorkeling, sun-bathing, and hiking, there is always something to do for everyone. Overall, I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to have a fun, relaxing, and/or adventurous vacation! :)

My girlfriend and I rented Barcadere Cove in April, 2012. Property description and photos were just what we found. It's a large, fully-equipped beautiful house & property right on the ocean. Snorkeling, swimming and exploring the reefs were spectacular. Awesome sea-life can be found everywhere as the sun cuts through the clear-blue water over the reefs and sea-floor We had a peaceful and relaxing time. The view and beauty from the patio, and especially from the elevated deck off the the master bedroom were exceptional. We had a car, which was nice for bringing things back from the market, but bikes would do well, also. The coral can be sharp in places, so bring beach shoes. We took many photos, including underwater. Bring a camera and binoculars. Finally, everything was very convenient (bank, market, etc), but peace and privacy couldn't be better.
