Overview

Cayman Brac House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Getaway has been described as 'the perfect island beach house'. The house has an open modern design that allows the breeze to flow through the rooms. Situated on the south (windward) side of Cayman Brac, the Getaway oceanfront home is cooled by constant trade winds. Air conditioning is also available if preferred.

An open gable design, double French doors, vaulted ceilings with ceiling fans in every room, tile floors throughout, and a screen porch all add to the island experience. The screen porch has a hammock and lounge chairs perfect for a nap, reading, or just taking in the refreshing ocean views and breeze. A private sandy beach area great for sunbathing is right outside the back door. Also, a large barbecue grill provides a perfect place to grill your catch of the day!

The home is just a few steps (only 120 feet) from the clear, turquoise, Caribbean Sea. There are 3 tidal pools at the oceans' edge: 1 foot, 2 feet and 4 feet deep, perfect for a quick dip. There is a reef a short distance out providing excellent snorkeling. The home is about one mile from the island dive shops and less than one half mile to the nearest restaurant.

The home has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full size bed. The home is fully furnished and includes a washing machine, wi-fi, cd player, cable tv, and DVD player. All towels (including beach towels) and linens are included. The kitchen is fully equipped including stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. Everything you need for the perfect 'getaway'!

My local house caretakers will meet you at the airport and show you to the house. Should you have questions during your stay, you can always contact the caretakers, and I am also happy to answer any of your questions about this home or the island.

'A truly great place to relax and unwind.' 'The best vacation I have ever had.' 'The pictures just don't do it justice.' 'One week wasn't enough, we want 2 weeks next year' - quotes from previous guests. I hope to hear from you, too!

About Marcia Tucker

I currently live in Fort Collins, Colorado, but grew up in 'Joisey'. I am single and have 3 grown kiddos who are all working for a living ... hurrah! My dream is to live on an island ... and Cayman Brac is the best island in the world. I purchased the Getaway house in 2001, and through all the changes in life and on the island, it is still the only place I want to be.

What a "Getaway"!

What a "Getaway"!
  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay at your "Getaway", we loved it! The house was perfect. Only thing was the TV, never could seem to get the cable to work properly, but that was okay, we just watched some of your movies. The island and people were wonderful. We feel like there wasn't enough time in the day to see all the sights, etc. Of course my husband fell in love with the many diving/snorkeling sights. We will definitely be planning another trip in the future, hopefully with our children. Thanks again for all the information you provided and the great place to stay.

Just my style

  • 5 of 5
The "Getaway" has a crisp, clean beach cottage feel and has been my cozy wrap on more than several trips to this slow paced,quiet island for weeks of memories filled with snorkeling, beach walking, reading, exploring, and just plain old restorative living. I get hungry for this cottage where the ocean has been my back yard complete with tidal pools to sit in at the water's edge; where I slept and woke to the sound of waves; where the stars had no competition in order to provide a ceiling over a fire and bottle of wine on the beach; where every morning there was nothing more to do than stand up, put on the bathing suit and repeat another day in the dreaminess.

A Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfectly situated on the Island in terms of proximity to the airport, shops and other resorts. The "Getaway" certainly lives up to its name and you leave feeling like you've truly had a getaway! The beach house offers everything you would expect for a laid-back and relaxing seaside vacation. Highly recommended, we love it and plan to go back as soon as possible!

The Getaway House is a great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
The minute we stepped off the plane I thought it is so quiet here. The Getaway house is beautiful. We really enjoyed hearing the waves crash on the shore from our open windows. Its a small island but we really enjoyed exploring the caves and bluff. We also enjoyed snorkeling at the public beach just down the road from the house. It was a very special place to visit.

SCUBA

  • 5 of 5
Three of us stayed at this wonderful island cottage for ten days. It is definitely a 10. If you're looking for privacy and yet access to the island pleasures, this is the place. The cottage more than met our expectations. It is fully airconditioned with ceiling fans and has great views from the living room and porch of the sea. There is always the comfort of the sea breeze while laying in the hamock on the porch. The bedrooms, spacious fully equiped kitchen,living room with cable TV and wifi, screened porch and parking were a pleasant surprise. The kitchen tableware is colorful and really gives you the "island" feel. Much appreciated was how clean the cottage is and the clean bedding and bathroom towels. It is right on the south road and very close to the airport, dining, Reef Divers SCUBA center, and liquor/grocery stores all of which are within minutes driving. Shore diving is a real must eventhough you have to "hunt" for the entry points on the north side. Though the cottage is on the windward side it provides an exciting experience to watch the waves and the tides. You can walk out the back side of the cottage for a morning or evening careful walk on the seashore and soak in the tidal pools. The red hermit and bat crabs are a real hoot to watch scurry around. Bird life is abundant all around the cottage and if you're into bicycle riding or running the well paved south/north roads have at it. There are also caves to explore and the drive to the lighthouse to overlook the ocean from the bluffs is an event not to miss. Remember, drive on the right side meaning the left side. Someday, we hope to return.

It just doesn't get more relaxing than this...

After exhaustive research into where to spend our precious vacation time, we settled on Cayman Brac. Our criteria? An island in the western hemisphere, world class snorkeling, not touristed, limited development, and NO BUGS! The Brac met all criteria. We selected this cottage for the proximity to the water, and the reviews that mentioned how clean it was. On too many vacations we've had to clean the place before we could settle in. Our standards in that department are high. The cottage was absolutely spotless. What a treat! Spacious, airy, inviting, and the trades a constant. The sound of the surf became a part of us. Didn't once have to take a sleeping pill! While some might argue that there is not a lot "to do" on the Brac, in our three and a half weeks we were never bored. It's a very slow speed on Cayman Brac, which some might have a hard time adjusting to, but it's not off the grid...there is a lively beach bar down the road at the Brac Reef Resort where we had dinner a few times, played ping-pong and bingo and tapped in to their wifi (I understand that the cottage now has wifi). The owner, Marcia, was amazingly helpful before the trip and very kind to us when our flight from Boston was postponed due to our EXPIRED passports! I would recommend this rental to anyone (and have)....it was an incredible vacation and I would return in a heartbeat!
