Fabulous Experience at the Winta Cottage!

If you want a place that truly connects you to nature, this is a great place to go! My girls and I chose this location as they loved the way the house looked like a tree house...the location almost makes you feel that you are right on the ocean - you can always hear the waves and feel the wind. We loved being able to snorkel out the front door (and in numerous other places on the island), explore the caves, hike the trails and see the unique birds that Cayman Brac is home to (the Booby Birds are so interesting!) We enjoyed the friendliness of the island, folks waving to us, invites to the Caribbean band at the Captain's Table, talking to the locals about the history of this island, kayaking...
The house is well done with a great design that allows for amazing sea views, fantastic sunsets, great star gazing...The kitchen is well equipped, a great selection of games, and lots of good information on the island. It was great to have laundry on site, the outdoor shower is great for getting the salt water of our bodies (it even has warm water!), the beds were comfortable, and the views, outstanding! We were even able to have an outdoor Easter Egg hunt, on the beach, and under the cottage!
We arrived on a Sunday and appreciated the heads up to bring food with us. We were also able to order pizza! Our girls were interested in an afternoon at the pool and so we were able to swim at the Captain's Table after our lunch. Availability of fresh produce was quite good if you got the store right after the food had arrived to the island. We really enjoyed the locals beach (by the old diva property) that offered a great location to swim, build sand castles and to snorkel. Buccaneers Reef was such a great place to see a wide variety of fish and is quite sheltered.
The owners were responsive, informative and really easy to work with. We were incredibly pleased with the Winta Cottage and the Brac and would highly recommend this as a unique, peaceful, naturalistic place to go!
