Warm tropical breezes and spectacular azure ocean views await you on Cayman Brac at the Getaway house. I invite you to come and experience one of the Caribbean's best kept secrets.
The Getaway house has been described as 'the perfect island beach house'. The home is just a few steps (only 120 feet) from the clear, turquoise, Caribbean Sea. This oceanfront home is situated on the south (windward) side of Cayman Brac and enjoys constant trade winds. Double French doors, vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tile floors, and a screen porch all add to the island experience.
The house is fully furnished and has a washing machine, wi-fi, cd player, and cable tv with Netflix. All towels (including beach towels) and linens are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped including stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. Everything you need for the perfect 'getaway'!
The home has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full size bed. The screen porch has a hammock and lounge chairs perfect for a nap, reading, or just taking in the refreshing ocean views and breeze. A private sandy beach area great for sunbathing is right outside the back door. Also, a large barbecue grill provides a perfect place to grill your catch of the day!
There are 3 tidal pools at the oceans' edge: 1 foot, 2 feet and 4 feet deep, perfect for a quick dip or a long relaxing soak with an adult beverage. A coral reef a short distance out from shore provides excellent snorkeling. Shore fishing and beach bonfires are also great fun ... and free ... and without the hassle of having to leave your 'getaway'!
Whether you're coming to Cayman Brac just to have some time to yourself or maybe a family adventure or perhaps a romantic getaway, the Getaway house has everything you need. The house is conveniently located near the dive shops, restaurants, and a grocery store, yet far enough away from everything to make you feel as though you have the island to yourself.
'A truly great place to relax and unwind.' 'The best vacation I have ever had.' 'The pictures just don't do it justice.' 'One week wasn't enough, we want 2 weeks next year' - quotes from previous guests. I hope to hear from you, too!

This little gem is truly paradise. We loved our time at the Getaway. You will too.
Marcia was so lovely to work with from the beginning of contact! We really wanted to enjoy her Getaway house for Christmas. But when our plans changed, Marcia cheerfully refunded our deposit the next day. She was so helpful with info about the island, dog policy, etc, we were really sad to cancel.
My husband and I stayed 9 days at the Brac Getaway Cottage. We had such a wonderful time. The cottage is exactly as pictured...we felt like we were walking into a most familiar place. It is extremely comfortable and well equipped to meet our needs. We loved having our morning coffee on the screened porch watching the sun rise out of the ocean. In the evenings, we sat on the chairs outside in the sand and watched that same sun dip back into the water for the night. The sunrises and sunsets were magnificent!
My husband went diving 4 days and was very pleased with his dives. We were not able to swim or snorkel at the cottage as the waves were too rough but easily went to the north side of the island and had some wonderful days in the water. Marcia provides a list of dive and snorkel sites that are very easy to find.
The cottage is in a convenient location for restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores and dive shops. It is an easy access to the airport.
We loved listening to the waves coming into shore 24/7 or in our case 24/9. There is no more soothing sound than the ocean. Loved watching the birds catching their breakfast and the hermit crabs coming out in the evening.
Overall, we had a great time at the cottage and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get away to a peaceful place.
Marcia was very accommodating, answering all our questions regarding the island Getaway, prior to our booking, quickly and accurately - providing helpful details (such as favorite Dive Sites) that we printed out in advance and brought with us. The house care-takers met us at the car rental agency as expected, and dealt with a minor problem, during our stay, quickly & efficiently.
This property is well situated on the island, and the layout of the home provides good use of the trade winds throughout (although there are also ceiling fans & AC if preferred). Everything we needed was provided, and the mid-island location created a restful base for our excursions. As shore divers, my husband & I dived daily, renting our tanks through the Brac Shack, just down the street. We found the dive sites easily negotiated with marked rocks and local maps. Many of the shore entrances are even cut-out for easier access. We dined out occasionally at the Brac Reef Resort, which provided great service & filling meals - also just a few miles down the road.
An east wind kicked up during our stay, causing windy water conditions, so we enjoyed the colorful reefs & fish mostly to ourselves (octopi, large crabs, southern rays, eagle rays, porcupine & burr fish, various nudibranchs, purple sea fans, drum fish, nurse sharks, etc.). My husband was especially taken by "George", the local large grouper, who spent nearly an entire dive following us around. This was our first time to Cayman Brac. We have shore dived in Bonaire & also Curacao and wanted to experience Cayman diving without the crowds. We found the finger reefs, near shore, to be very similar the the FL Keys; and of course, Cayman Brac has fabulous wall reefs as well. This location provided a great centralized base to explore it all. We enjoyed a wonderful time. :D and would recommend this unit for anyone wishing to relax, dive/snorkel, or just get-away. I loved falling asleep to the waves crashing off shore.
We have been coming to Cayman Brac for 19 years, owned a house for a while but started renting again 6 years ago. We have been staying at Getaway for the last 3 years. Getaway and its host are delightful, very pleasant and accommodating. If you want to stay busy, there is plenty to do, if you want to relax and enjoy, the porch, beach and hammocks works too. The house and furnishing are clean, well kept and inviting. We highly recommend staying at Getaway.
My husband and I just spent the long Thanksgiving weekend on Cayman Brac at the Getaway house. I had been to the island before, but my husband had not. He was absolutely thrilled. The house was very clean, and everything we needed for our stay was right there. He caught fish from the shore, and the outside grill was perfect for cooking--now I know how great VERY fresh fish is. We also had beach bonfires on two different nights down below the house. What a pleasure watching the stars and the fire and listening to the sea. The Getaway house is perfect, and the owner provided us with a lot of information about the island and the house before we arrived. VERY highly recommended!
