Warm tropical breezes and spectacular azure ocean views await you on Cayman Brac at the Getaway house. I invite you to come and experience one of the Caribbean's best kept secrets.
The Getaway house has been described as 'the perfect island beach house'. The home is just a few steps (only 120 feet) from the clear, turquoise, Caribbean Sea. This oceanfront home is situated on the south (windward) side of Cayman Brac and enjoys constant trade winds. Double French doors, vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tile floors, and a screen porch all add to the island experience.
The house is fully furnished and has a washing machine, wi-fi, cd player, cable tv, and DVD player. All towels (including beach towels) and linens are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped including stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. Everything you need for the perfect 'getaway'!
The home has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full size bed. 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!
There are 3 tidal pools at the oceans' edge: 1 foot, 2 feet and 4 feet deep, perfect for a quick dip or a long relaxing soak with an adult beverage. A coral reef a short distance out from shore provides excellent snorkeling (my favorite snorkeling spot on Cayman Brac ... but I might be a little biased). Bikes are available to explore the island. Shore fishing and beach bonfires are also great fun ... and free ... and without the hassle of having to leave your 'getaway'!
Whether you're coming to Cayman Brac just to have some time to yourself or maybe a family adventure or perhaps a romantic getaway, the Getaway house has everything you need. The house is conveniently located near the dive shops, restaurants, and a grocery store, yet far enough away from everything to make you feel as though you have the island to yourself.
'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!

Marcia was very accommodating, answering all our questions regarding the island Getaway, prior to our booking, quickly and accurately - providing helpful details (such as favorite Dive Sites) that we printed out in advance and brought with us. The house care-takers met us at the car rental agency as expected, and dealt with a minor problem, during our stay, quickly & efficiently.
This property is well situated on the island, and the layout of the home provides good use of the trade winds throughout (although there are also ceiling fans & AC if preferred). Everything we needed was provided, and the mid-island location created a restful base for our excursions. As shore divers, my husband & I dived daily, renting our tanks through the Brac Shack, just down the street. We found the dive sites easily negotiated with marked rocks and local maps. Many of the shore entrances are even cut-out for easier access. We dined out occasionally at the Brac Reef Resort, which provided great service & filling meals - also just a few miles down the road.
An east wind kicked up during our stay, causing windy water conditions, so we enjoyed the colorful reefs & fish mostly to ourselves (octopi, large crabs, southern rays, eagle rays, porcupine & burr fish, various nudibranchs, purple sea fans, drum fish, nurse sharks, etc.). My husband was especially taken by "George", the local large grouper, who spent nearly an entire dive following us around. This was our first time to Cayman Brac. We have shore dived in Bonaire & also Curacao and wanted to experience Cayman diving without the crowds. We found the finger reefs, near shore, to be very similar the the FL Keys; and of course, Cayman Brac has fabulous wall reefs as well. This location provided a great centralized base to explore it all. We enjoyed a wonderful time. :D and would recommend this unit for anyone wishing to relax, dive/snorkel, or just get-away. I loved falling asleep to the waves crashing off shore.
We have been coming to Cayman Brac for 19 years, owned a house for a while but started renting again 6 years ago. We have been staying at Getaway for the last 3 years. Getaway and its host are delightful, very pleasant and accommodating. If you want to stay busy, there is plenty to do, if you want to relax and enjoy, the porch, beach and hammocks works too. The house and furnishing are clean, well kept and inviting. We highly recommend staying at Getaway.
My husband and I just spent the long Thanksgiving weekend on Cayman Brac at the Getaway house. I had been to the island before, but my husband had not. He was absolutely thrilled. The house was very clean, and everything we needed for our stay was right there. He caught fish from the shore, and the outside grill was perfect for cooking--now I know how great VERY fresh fish is. We also had beach bonfires on two different nights down below the house. What a pleasure watching the stars and the fire and listening to the sea. The Getaway house is perfect, and the owner provided us with a lot of information about the island and the house before we arrived. VERY highly recommended!
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.
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.
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!
