About Shawn and Jeff Marsteller
Jeff & I hail from Pennsylvania and Iowa. We currently live in Mississippi and are a military family used to adventures and a lot of change. Due to moving often, we had not purchased a house before now. As ocean lovers, we never thought an ocean front retreat would be do-able financially for middle class folks. We found lovely bones and potential in what will be our retirement home. Until then, we will visit and let others love it as well. We fell in love with the laid back quiet island and hope you will too.
Shawn and Jeff Marsteller purchased this House in 2014
Why Shawn and Jeff Marsteller chose Cayman Brac
Our first dive after certification was in Cayman Brac. I still get nervous each first dive, but I feel most at home in Brac. After several trips, we tossed the idea of seeing what was available on this out of the way, peaceful place. Loved the proximity to the stores, restaurants and airport. Thrilled with the seclusion and privacy and I fell in love with our view. It has always been about seeing, hearing and smelling the water any vacation we have ever taken.
What makes this House unique
The island is small, yes, but our location is close to markets, restaurants, dive centers, the public sand beach and a short drive to medical facilities which I have had the opportunity to "test drive". It was uncomplicated and cheaper than the US. I prefer a smaller, personable community to live in and do not like crowds, chaos and busyness brought by large cities. It has a "Gilligan's Island" quality.

My wife and I first visited just a couple months ago, and knew immediately we would be coming back. We were only a day into our second trip when we began planning our third! The property is perfect for couples and families, and the views of the ocean make for incredible relaxing evenings watching the sunset. Convenient to everything on the island, absolutely spotless, and all the amenities you could hope for. We'll be back!
I really appreciate your review! I'm so glad you love our modern "Gilligan's Island"! Brac is a wonderfully laid-back place to relax and explore! We would welcome you back anytime!!
Charming with excellent location
Island elegance, truly an amazing home and location. Special artistic island decor, very quiet neighborhood, great for early morning and evening walks.
Five minutes from excellent birding,snorkeling and shore dives.
Owners and caretaker easy to communicate with.
This was my second time visiting and I look forward to returning soon.
More Than We Even Hoped For
This home truly lives up to its name: Escape from Reality. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The house was beautifully appointed, completely equipped, conveniently located and the views of the seas and skies spectacular. We were met at the airport by a very helpful young man who lead us to the house and helped us get settled in. He made sure that we were able to reach him if we ran into any issues but we had no need of any further assistance throughout our stay. We fully enjoyed three days of peace and quiet and the opportunity to explore this lovely island.
I'm honored that you chose our escape as yours! Your glowing review was wonderful and inspires me to make sure each guest has a place to unwind, relax and recharge. We would welcome a return visit anytime!
We had a great time, the house was everything we expected; comfortable, spacious, and clean, with amazing views and close proximity to the ocean.
Very Comfortable, Clean and Well Maintained.
This was our ninth vacation to the Brac and our second stay at "Escape From Reality". We were very pleased and hope to stay there again next year! We had our two daughters (18 & 23) with us for the first week of our vacation this year and they were also very impressed with the house. Lovely home away from home!
great home away from home
2nd time staying at this comfortable home. Shawn & Jeff are very nice to work with, answered all questions. My one "little wish" would be to have a full length mirror in the master bedroom but other than that - Perfect
