NEW LISTING - BRAC FLOWER HOUSE - BEACHFRONT ON THE SOUTH SIDE

Cayman Brac House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

As soon as you pull into the circular driveway, you will understand why this is called the Brac Flower House. There is wild aloe growing in the rock garden and every color of bougainvillea you can imagine.

After you walk under the bridge of magenta flowers and through the front door, you will be amazed by the view of the water from every window. The furnishing are all new with light fabrics and dark wood to enhance the beauty of the outside. There is a bedroom on each side of the house insuring privacy which has been decorated with high thread count sheets for your comfort. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a futon in the living room for additional guests.

Start your day with coffee at the pine farmers table or outside with your feet in the white sand. Then go back to bed to finish the last pages of your book, or put on your water shoes and slip into the ocean. The water feels better here than anyplace else, softer somehow. The ocean stays shallow for awhile so you can snorkel out and walk in, or adventure out farther. You are sure to see spotted rays, lobsters, conchs and thousand of fish.

After a day of sunbathing, swimming, caving, kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, napping, use the outdoor shower and then head into the well appointed kitchen to prepare the fish you caught or heat up left over’s in the new microwave after the sun zapped all your energy. Dinner outside under the palm tree then roll onto the beach chair to count shooting stars. It will feel like you can literally reach out and touch the Milky Way. End your night in bed as the sound of the waves lull you to sleep.

First let me say, if you are traveling to the Brac - we are jealous! We are from CT, a family of five (3 teenagers) a cat and a dog. We fell in love with the Brac the minute we saw it.

Alder Crocker purchased this house in 2007

We have had the good fortune of traveling extensively and staying in some wonderful hotels. What we really remembered was the family time (scrabble games or the inside jokes we shared). It was about creating memories and the hotels became more like a distraction. Every time we go to the Brac we leave with big smiles on our faces, laughing about things we experienced and memories we share. Crime is very low on the island so we always feel safe and the people on the Brac are the kindest people in the world!

We have the best of both worlds at our house. If we want to go out for a great dinner and watch karaoke (which people seem to take seriously on the Brac) we head out. If we want to just relax, we stay home with complete privacy. We just love that you can walk off the deck and be in the sand.

CROSS THIS ONE OFF THE LIST

  • 1 of 5
This house should never be listed as a vacation rental. I occupied the guest bedroom and had the following issues:
1. The house water pump is located in a closet in the bedroom. Anytime the water pressure went down during the night I was startled awake (assuming I got to sleep in the first place) by the pump kicking on and running until the pressure demand was met. The pump itself has a leak that keeps about 1/4 inch of water on the closet floor. When the water storage tanks run low (see #2 below) the pump cavitates, makes a huge racket, and takes several minutes to recover the lost pressure.

2. We completely lost water in the house on the evening of our fifth day there (Thursday night) because the water supply valves had been improperly set and only one of the two storage tanks was feeding the house. The water supply truck was supposed to come by on Friday but it apparently delivered the water to the wrong house. The truck finally showed up on Saturday morning. By the way, when I looked into the storage tanks to determine the water levels I could see debris in the tank and some unknown particles floating on the surface. I would not count on drinking the tap water.

3. The guest bedroom, unlike the master, has no useable blinds over the windows, so you can't keep light out of the room. All they had were the reed (bamboo??) woven screens.

4. The bedroom air conditioners were so loud they were unusable during sleeping hours. Thankfully the temperatures had cooled off from the previous weeks (when they were HOT) so one could cool the rooms sufficiently during the day that they could be turned off at night.

5. The guest bedroom walk in shower was built so that the low point was not where the floor drain was. As a result the front left side of the shower enclosure collected water, was never dry, and developed a slippery scum layer. I tried to avoid stepping there.

6. There are one or two steps from the living area down to the kitchen and both bedrooms, and also a step from the guest bedroom down to the bathroom. One had to be very mindful of these to keep from falling in the night.

7. The general condition of the house is fairly poor and in disrepair.

I read several other reviews and they were all complimentary. I can only assume they did not use the guest bedroom and the water supply had been properly configured for them. I've stayed on the Brac once before and on Little Cayman several times. This was my worst experience ever.

Owner's Response: Please thank your husband for his separate note, we are so pleased that he had a great time. Unfortunately, it is impossible to make everyone happy, although that is our #1 priority. Silent air conditioners and water pumps would be a great invention (if you find one, please let us know). The property is 100% private, so the blinds allow us to block the full sun while still enjoying the amazing view of the ocean. There are three steps that allow the common room to be raised and enhance the view. We did not advertise the house to be wheel chair accessible, although you can access the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom without using the steps. As for the water, the island moves at its own pace, and a mistake was made and fixed as soon as it was found out. We have a property manager available to remedy any unexpected issue and everyone has been very pleased with his around-the-clock assistance. On the bright side, next week we have return guests coming!

It's our paradise, and that of every other guest we have hosted, it just wasn't hers. If you are considering renting our house, and have any questions, please...just contact us.

FIRST TRIP TO CAYMAN BRAC

  • 5 of 5
This beach house is a gem. It is nestled among shading vegetation in a quiet part of the island, with a great view of the Caribbean. The house is in great shape, clean, and spacious. Its best assets are a phenomenal, sunny common area with much room to relax and two bedrooms at opposite ends, each with its own bath. A full kitchen permits all food storage and preparation one might need. Unlike many Cayman properties, this yard features trees, shrubs, and flowering bushes that shade and provide shelter for birds, hermit crabs, and small lizards. Like almost all Cayman Brac shorelines, this one is rocky and sharp, and water shoes are necessary. Due to a southerly breeze during our stay, we swam and snorkeled on the north shore, which is easily accessible with the dividing road close to the house.

The owners provided a good outline of where to shop, eat, and pursue activities. The house has reliable WiFi and other entertainment systems as advertised.

Cayman Brac is a quiet place, but the owners, as well as the local tourist office, gave us good hints at what to do. Aside from the phenomenal snorkeling in clear water, we recommend NIM Things for local jewelry, Pioneer Bakery for fresh bread, local jerk chicken, the caves, and the lighthouse and parrot walks. Though the island is small, car rental is necessary (CB Rental).

THE BRAC FLOWER HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
Our recent stay at the Brac Flower House was delightful. The place was clean and very spacious. The owner was extremely helpful with all our questions. You definitely need to hire a car and this was easily accomplished. The car rental company brought the car to the house and also picked it up at the end of our two weeks stay. We explored the whole island, the lighthouse, the museum and heritage house, etc. As we're a couple of seniors we didn't explore the caves!! We also weren't able to swim in the ocean at the house as the the ocean was too rough, but we did go to the public beach not far from the house which was beautiful. We did swim there. We enjoyed the food at the Alexander hotel the most - but we did try several different restaurants also. We had a completely relaxing vacation Thank you.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Brac Flower House!!! We were hard pressed to stay awake most nights past 9:30 pm., after snorkelling, swimming and cave hiking during the day time. The master bedroom bed was so comfortable and the sound of the waves was very relaxing. We sat out most days under the palm trees on the recliners before we went for dinner, had a nice cool drink and just enjoyed the view! Because there are plenty of windows in this cottage, we were able to not have to put on the air conditioners. The ceiling and portable fans were more than enough to keep the cottage comfortable day and night. We tried most of the local restaurants and went back to the Brac Reef, as the food and staff were bother super! We contacted Jodie from the Marine shop and he took us out for a half day of fishing. We had a really good time and caught a bunch of Yellow tailed snappers, which the chef at the Brac Reef cooked up for us that evening. The fish were so tasty that the other diners were jealous. We discovered that we had a seven inch long iguana on the property that we saw each day, so we named him Ike. The locals on Cayman Brac were all very friendly and helpful. My husband ended up getting sea itch and after asking around were able to get the proper relief at the one grocery store. I would definitely recommend this island and to rent this property to anyone who wants a quiet and peaceful holiday.

BRAC FLOWER HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
First time in Cayman Brac and would definately go back. No traffic, no traffic lites and the people were friendly. The brac flower house was a great find and was Better than the online photos. Great yard with ocean front to wonder on and with no lights around at nite, the stars were incredible.
We used the kitchen and bbq quite a bit as well as dining at all the local establishments. Food was great everywhere and prices reasonable.
We snorkled everyday somewhere on island but only once directly in front of house due to windy conditions. We took in pretty much everything the island had to offer from lighthouse to parrot watching to cave exploring etc. Great island !!
I would recommend this property and I know we will be back in the future. Thanks Erin

PEACEFUL AND COMFORTABLE STAY ON CAYMAN BRAC

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 wonderful days at the beach house and couldn't have been happier with the condition, ammenities, location and ambience. So close to wonderfully clear waters with abundant sun, the house makes you want to go nowhere but stay and relax. The house is air conditioned, but we enjoyed the open air feeling with windows and doors open. With two ensuite beedrooms, the house is perfect for two families with plenty of extra sleeping accomodations in the main living room. The kitchen is well equiped which makes staying home and enjoying the beautiful evenings easy. Snorkeling right off the house is beautiful, but watch the current. There is a nice sandy beach just a few miles west (we were the only ones there when we went). There are numerous markets for all your needs, but things are a bit pricy dur to the exchange rate, and you will most likely want to rent a small car to get around to the many hiking and exploring oportunities such as trails and caves. There are also numerous oportunities to experience scuba diving and fishing. There are also two nice hotels with very good restaurants if you do wnat to go out for dinner or accomodate additional visitors. I short, we loved everything about CAyman Brac and the beach house. We will return!

Map

Our property is located on the highly desirable South Side. At the Brac you can do everything, or nothing. Many guests find a good book on the bookcase and never leave the house, some dive all day everyday, some walk the island, explore the multiple caves and nature walks, enjoy great snorkeing right off our beach or take in the restaurants and the evening karoake. If you want to truly relax on your vacation, this is your spot.
