EVERYTHING WE WANTED

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful 10 days in the cottage and exploring the beautiful island beyond. The place was spotless and contained everything we needed to make our vacation perfect -- from cookware to coolers to guidebooks and an outdoor charcoal grill. All exactly as advertised. The cottage is located in a quiet part of this quiet island, with both sunrises and sunsets visible from the oceanside deck. Neighbors are just on one side, and they were there just one evening. As others have noted, swimming directly in front of the cottage isn't the easiest, due to shallow water and a lot of spiny sea urchins. Wear sneakers or watershoes and there'll be no problem. Walk a few steps to the left and entry is a lot easier. We spent nearly all our time snorkeling at a dozen or so spots up and down the shore, where entry and exit are especially easy thanks to ladder-equipped carve-outs in the rock. Plenty to see in the water, too, and each site seemed to offer something different. We went twice to the sandy public beach on the opposite side of the island and we had the place to ourselves both times. Most of the time we were happy to eat in, though we also hit some of the local restaurants plus one of the island's two resorts. Very friendly people everywhere. I guarantee we'll be back!

WONDERFUL, RELAXING TIME ON A QUIET ISLAND.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the house 1 day late due to a problem with our United plane, but even that couldn’t sour our vacation experience at this house and on Cayman Brac. The caretaker met us at the airport (along with the rent car representative). We followed her to the house, she showed us around, gave us the key and the cell phone, explained a few high lights of the island and left. The house was clean and had about everything you could want for the 2 of us. The view was awesome, there is a nature preserve on one side, a large duplex on the other, but no one was in the other homes while we were there, so the beach was ours alone. The master bedroom had an air conditioner, but we never used it, just left the windows open, the door open and fans on. I don’t know how cool the rooms upstairs would be, might be a problem in the summer, but down stairs was great. With all the doors open, the surf sounds were pretty loud, good breeze almost all the time. We parked our rented jeep under the house every night, so never had to put the top back up. The iHome didn’t have a converter to use an iPhone 5 or later, so we didn’t get music. Be sure and bring your own converter to use that. The radio station came in some times. There was a good shower and another outdoor shower down stairs. The home was in a pretty good location, especially for snorkeling. There was Scotts pier less than 5 minutes away and Buccaneer a minute or two farther. Both give great access for snorkeling and have some nice coral to see fish on. The islanders were most extremely nice. We ate at the Island Star restaurant, the closest place several times and it was always good. The big resort (Brac Reef Resort) was a 10-15 minute drive across the island and west. The food was great there and they have a good outdoor bar. The island is very safe, which is nice. There is not much night life, not a lot do other than relax, snorkel, dive, hiking, cave exploring and fishing. It was perfect for us, but our college age kids would probably have been bored.

WINTA IS A WINNER!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 6 days in the Winta Cottage and we had a wonderful relaxing time. While we have been to Grande Cayman many times, we had never been to Cayman Brac. It is a beautiful little island with some of the friendliest people that I have ever met. This is a totally different experience than Grande Cayman....there are no cruise crowds to interrupt your day (nothing against the cruise crowd) like you find in GC. You feel like you have the island pretty much to your self.

The cottage was perfect for us, just myself and my wife. It has everything you need to make you stay a great and relaxing experience. We really enjoyed being able to leave our bedroom doors open at night and hearing the waves and getting the incredible sea breezes.....you really don't need the air conditioning.

We definately plan a return trip.

NICE HOUSE ON A QUIET ISLAND.

  • 4 of 5
The house is nice, clean, and has all the amenities. It was nice to have a washing machine, and with the clothesline, your clothes are dry in no time at all. The outdoor shower is great, the Netflix/internet worked well, and the kitchen was well-stocked. We were there in August and the house generally gets a great breeze but, as noted in the description, only the master bedroom has an air conditioner. My kids (8 and 11) slept in the loft area and it was pretty stifling when the breeze died down after the first couple of days that we were there.

The house is right on the beach. The water is beautiful but it's not really swimmable. You can get in with watershoes but you have to be careful of the urchins and sharp rocks. Our girls were not comfortable going out there. There was a small place to go into the water a ways down the beach but not nice or large enough to stay in for long periods of time. We had planned to go to the public beach on the other side of the island however we found that it was covered in trash (plastic bottles and flip-flops) which was very disappointing. We were told that Cuba and Haiti dump trash into the ocean and it washed ashore in a storm. Presumably it is not always like this, but I don't really know. We found a hotel that agreed to let us use their pool (the Alexander) and that was a huge relief. They were soooo nice and accommodating there. We also went to Buccaneer which has a ladder where you can go down into the water and swim, and the snorkeling was incredible.

On the whole, I don't regret coming to Winta Cottage but I was a bit let down by the swimming situation. I don't recommend Cayman Brac if you want a beach vacation or have small kids who like to swim. If you like to dive and snorkel, and do outdoor activities like hike, rock-climb and go caving, then it would be a great place to be, and the house is a great house to stay in.

FANTASTIC GETAWAY DESTINATION FOR ADVENTURES

  • 5 of 5
Winta Cottage was a true delight. Quaint and quiet, with virtually no disruptions by traffic or noise. We spent a week here, exploring the island at our leisure and found it to be everything it is described to be. Buccaneers Slip provides easy snorkeling, but don't be afraid to try the smaller slips along the North Road as they provide some surprising gems. The caves are very cool. Be sure to take good hiking shoes if you intend to venture out, as the iron shore is pretty treacherous in places.

Management and owners are extremely helpful and friendly, as are all the locals that we had any contact with. Pay close attention to the books and the folders in the cottage. They contain some really valuable resources.
