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.
