Overview

Tibbett's Turn House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

NEW, PRIVATE, ON THE BEACH:

GEM of a home with its own private dock! You will enjoy stunning views of the sunset, little cay and star-gazing from the crow’s nest deck and balcony or just relax on the covered patio in a hammock. This newly renovated 1140 square foot home has an open floor plan, a great room with fantastic views, a modern kitchen and décor.

Nestled between Bamboo bay and the Bight, Hammock Moon is perfect for diving and snorkeling right off your private dock. Outdoor shower, line and dive hangers all set. Out the door is also a designated premium dive site with loads of fish and large coral heads to delight the nature lover in you. New, two person sea worthy kayak launch from the house.

You can also walk to the north entrance of the parrot reserve for bird watching. Enjoy a relaxing holiday away from tourists, crowds and hectic schedules.

ABOUT CAYMAN BRAC:

From brilliant reefs in pristine waters to exotic birds nesting on jagged cliffs, Cayman Brac is home to a wealth of stunning natural wonders. The island’s unique geological features and abundant animal life make it an ideal destination for a variety of outdoor activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, rock climbing, hiking, bicycling, caving, and bird-watching.

DIVING Cayman Brac offers some of the most remarkable diving in the Caribbean. With over 50 major sites, divers at all levels are spoiled for choice. The reefs offer radiant coral, sea fans, and sponges in bright shades of red, orange, yellow, green, and purple. At varying sites, divers often encounter turtles, rays, sharptail eels, angelfish, puffer fish, parrot fish and countless other aquatic species. Divers can also explore the upper decks of a 330-foot freighter that was deliberately sunk and made safe for diving. The ship’s features include a missile launcher, deck cannons, living quarters and more.

HIKING With diverse terrain, unique flora and fauna, and gorgeous views, Cayman Brac’s hiking trails are ideal for an adventurous traveler. All of the trails are easily accessible, with signage visible from the roadside. The two-mile nature trail through Saltwater Pond Reserve covers 38 species of trees and a variety of birds including the near-threatened Brac parrot and vitelline warbler. Or for a challenge, hikers can follow rocky trails up the bluff to reach stunning views.

CLIMBING Cayman Brac boasts some of the world’s most exotic climbing. The island derives its name from the beautiful bluff on the eastern end of the island (Brac means bluff in Gaelic). The limestone cliffs reach up to 43 meters (140 feet), offering unparalleled views. There are over 70 bolted routs on the island, from beginner to advanced, and the number continues to grow.

CAVING The abundant caves on Cayman Brac are home to amazing formations and unique flora and fauna. A number of the caves have historical significance, as they have been used as shelter during the rare severe hurricanes that have come to the island. Popular caves include Peter’s Cave, which offers a spectacular view of the south side of the island and the ocean beyond; the Bat’s Cave, which houses a number of bats as well as owls; and the Great Cave, which offers beautiful formations and large open rooms.

BIRDS A number of striking exotic birds have been observed on Cayman Brac, including the white-tailed tropic bird, the Brac parrot, tricolored herons, the magnificent frigate bird, and spoonbills. Some have formed permanent colonies; others stop by for breeding or on their way to warmer climates. Brown booby colonies can be observed on the lighthouse footpath all year round, but springtime is best for sightings of their fluffy white chicks.

Note to renters: to get the most out of your holiday you will want a rental car in the Brac.

Great two bedroom with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

This house has amazing views! This is the perfect house to just relax at. Open living room, kitchen , and dining room make for a great area to hang out in to escape the heat, or enjoy the ocean view while cooking, drinking, and dining. The house deck is the perfect spot to watch sunsets. If you want a quiet getaway where you only hear ocean then this is the place. Only a short drive to grocery store and a liquor store. The owner is friendly and very helpful.

Cozy luxurious beach house experience in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Hammock Moon is the most lovely, comfortable, well-appointed place for a get-away. Between the roof deck and the outside seating downstairs, the views are just spectacular - day and night. I was mostly impressed by how well stocked up this place was with every whim I could have had - the kitchen has everything you could need and more, and the bedding, towels, etc. were lush and perfect. It's easy to feel right at home here, and it is a beautiful, extremely clean, neat, lovely and well-maintained home. I will definitely be looking to come back again soon. You can't have a better view, being directly on the water, and the house itself is so welcoming and nicer than staying in a hotel. I had a wonderful visit and can't wait to go back - would definitely stay in Hammock Moon again every chance I get!

Beautiful seaside oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time on Cayman Brac. We visited in February and fell in love with the island. Our first time at Hammock Moon but definitely not our last. I was a little hesitant to book based on negative comments I read in reviews regarding the beds being uncomfortable and the shower small. I can assure you the beds were very comfortable and the shower was not at all small. Lovely home, very clean, open concept, washer/dryer conveniently located in bathroom, decorated in vibrant beach style. Gorgeous views from the observation deck on the second level and relaxing hammocks ground level by the sea. A kayak and good snorkeling right from the dock. Short drive to really fabulous easy entry diving/snorkeling. The owners met us at the airport and assisted us with renting a car and gave us a tour of the home and grounds, a very lovely welcome. We were 100% well satisfied with our stay at Hammock Moon. 🐠🌴🐚

Wonderful! Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We were glad we had a rental car. Shopped at the local market, had some meals in and some out.

Enjoyed the pristine snorkeling right from the shore. We explored the island, taking several hikes, beaches and top of the island and looking in the caves, Shopped at NIM and met Tenson Scott! We had everything we needed including flashlights for the caves. Loved the deck view of sunsets and stars. Found ourselves going back to the Barracuda Bar in the evening. Not enough time in the hammocks!

Well Thought Out especially for Shore Divers

  • 5 of 5

Cayman Brac is a sweet island for shore divers with more than 25 (finger groove) shore diving sites around the island. Hammock Moon is located on the NE side with sunset view. It is well set up for divers with their own gear. We loved it. Families with young children either will want to keep them under close watch (water edge is perhaps 75 ft away), or they should be good swimmers.

Amazing!

I was really surprised by one review because it did not reflect our experience. We had everything we needed, the house was well appointed and we had a wonderful time.
