And wel we weren esed atte beste.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in a lot of cottages in the Caribbean; this is the best equipped one yet. We will sometimes buy an inexpensive kitchen item and leave it - cheese grater, garlic press, or something like that. I could not come up with a single item that we couldn't find on site. The bathroom includes insect repellents, sun screens, even contact lens solution - just in case you forgot something. The kitchen had everything we could imagine needing. And, of course, the washer/dryer (as well as clothes line) help reduce the amount of clothes to pack. The cottage is very clean and neat. And Sue even pressed us for any suggestions for how to improve it. But she is not an intrusive manager. She made it clear that the cottage and the beach were ours and that she would be out of the way. She was true to her word, but available on site if needed. She is also a very congenial host. With a little encouragement, we did get her to visit with us a bit and enjoyed her company as well as her experience on the island.

The property, including beachfront, is well maintained. Adjacent properties have rocks down to the water and the flotsam that shows up. Not so at Cayman Cottage. Sue removed the rocks long ago leaving a sandy beach and she keeps the debris picked up. Chairs and lounges on the beach have small tables for coffee cup, beer, rum glass, book, camera, etc. And she will remind you not to sit (or park) directly under the coconuts. The trees make good shade, but you don't want a coconut falling on you. Beach is beautiful. Swimming and snorkeling are good, but bring water shoes; all the islands have sea urchins that you'd rather not step on.

There are dive shops and restaurants less than a mile away, at least one restaurant in walking distance. We used the kitchen on the property, so can't say anything about restaurants. Liquor store in walking distance - we took the owner's advice to bring our own rum at about 1/2 the cost of the island supply. Grocery store about 2 miles away (near the airport). There is a bigger and better supplied grocery (Kirkconnell) on the north side in Stake Bay. Ask when fresh produce comes in.

I'm not sure if renting a car is essential. It's a long walk with groceries. Perhaps you could catch a ride? There is at least one restaurant within walking distance. The beach, the birds, and the fish are all on site. For birders the west Westerly Pond across the road is a great place for wading birds.

Well equipped cottage with beautiful private beach

  • 5 of 5
Cayman cottage shares a property with the larger owner's property. Although the larger house is mostly in front of the cottage, all the beautiful sandy beach is very much yours while you stay there. The cottage has everything you need, and the owner knows everyone and everything to do with CB.
Food shopping is a short drive away and there are some restaurants in walking distance. Delicious conch in coconut and rum punch at the Coral Isle Club Bar
There are many places to snorkel from the shore. Read the guides and look for the "easy entry" sites (it is actually the exits which are not so easy).
Great place for a totally relaxing holiday.

We loved the Cottage. The island is fascinating.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just retuned from a three week stay in Cayman Brac at the Cayman Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable for. We loved it. The outside was inviting, lush and tropical just as the pictures show. We really enjoyed lounging on the beach late in the day reading in the shade of the coconut trees, having happy hour, watching the terns, boobies and egrets work the lagoon, and watching the sunset.

During the day we found the island both unique and fascinating for exploring, hiking, bird watching, and spelunking. Snorkeling off of the shore-access dive sites was not what we expected, but we did see lots of beautiful tropical fish.

The local Bracians were very friendly and hospitable. Whenever anyone passes you on the roads they wave like you were an old friend or neighbor. When you are walking they stop and offer you a ride. We got to know several locals.

All in all Brac is a great place for people who want a laid-back tropical vacation with lots of opportunities to explore a very unique island.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5
We are always looking for a vacation spot that is VERY quiet and laid back. Sue's place was all of that and more ! We did not rent a car so we did lots of walking. We decided that we picked the best place on the island ! We found that much of the island is rocky and few places have a good beach. Sue has spent many years sifting the rocks out of the sand on her beach. It was heavenly !! We spent hours every day on the beach either in the sun or under beautiful palm trees that offered lots of shade. Sue also gives her guests lots of privacy and rarely comes out on the beach.

The Cottage was great. There was nothing missing. We did all of our own cooking and had lots of fun feeding the crabs. What a hoot ! They eat everything, including coffee grinds.

The only frustration was in Grand Cayman's airport. It was complete confusion !! So be prepared for lots of people and long lines !

We will certainly be back! Thanks Sue for a wonderful vacation !!!

Cozy, afforable, very clean, well-maintained, feels like home

  • 5 of 5
Cayman Cottage is a wonderful, clean and fully equipped vacation home on the south side of Cayman Brac. The owner/caretaker is very kind. The outside of the home has lots of palm trees, potted plants, a hammock, table and chairs and a ton of friendly hermit crabs. You can see the ocean from the kitchen window when washing dishes.

Sue (owner/caretaker) told us she always lets the people that are renting have the beach. The beach is beautiful. The inside of the cottage is very cozy. When you walk in the front door, you're in the dining room area. There are three couches, one of which is a futon. There's a tv with about 31 channels. The kitchen is fully equipped. Utensils, pots, pans, etc. There's an oven, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, two sinks with one faucet, a toaster, and other things. There are lots of ice trays in the freezer that you can use to fill the ice chest that's in the laundry room. There's also a washer and dryer.

In the kitchen pantry, people leave behind some items, such as no stick cooking spray and spices. In the bathroom, there's lots of stuff left behind too, like razor blades in their packages, shaving cream, unopened deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc.

The bed is queen size. Lots of drawers and two closets. Plus a huge mirror, outlets right there, etc. US-style outlets.

The island is very, very safe. Guns are illegal, and even the police don't carry firearms.

All shops and restaurants accept US or Cayman Island currency, and there's a bank with an ATM if needed.

Captain's Table restaurant and outdoor bar is about a 5-10 minute walk west down the road, and you can order food at the bar or sit inside the nice dining room. The Alexander Hotel is about a 5 minute walk east down the road, complete with a dining room and a poolside bar where you can order food if you don't want to sit inside. There's also another nearby bar with just drinks about a 10 minute walk east down the road. A liquor/wine/beer store is also an extremely short walk east down the road, about 5 minutes. Brac Reef Beach Resort is great too, though a bit further away.

The main market is about a 30 minute walk. We drove around the entire island several times, went in tons of shops and small markets, tasted great food and had a really fantastic time snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, dining, drinking, swimming and relaxing. Stay at Cayman Cottage. It's low cost, very quality and makes a perfect home for a getaway on the tiny island of Cayman Brac.

This is the best location offering easy walking to Resorts, 3 fine restaurants, 4 bars, 2 gift shops, car rentals, dive operations and a wine and spirits store.

The major hotel on the island is within ½ mile and provides additional restaurant/bar access with local entertainment, a diving operation and gift shop.

Within a mile is Tibbett's Square, a center equipped with grocery shopping, gifts & souvenirs and a doctor's office. Cayman National Bank is across the street.

Finally, a post office and the airport are within 1 1/4 mi.
