This Caribbean guest home has the best location on the Brac. The "Golden Mile" is the ONLY area in Cayman Brac with Reef Protection with a calm lagoon therefore providing calm water sports year round. I also provide a kayak which seats 2 for daily use. The south side beaches are the only ones that do not have Iron Shore on the Island. The Cottage is located on the grounds of the resident owner and is within walking distance to resorts, restaurants, gift shops,spirit and rum store, and car rental agencies. This area is on the windward side of the island and the Cottage's peaceful surroundings offer rest and relaxation. with cooling breezes. There is a 13% tourist tax that must be paid to the owner in US cash upon arrival for submission to the Government.

Owner is Licensed Quafilying Broker with GRI, CRS, CRB designations in the USA with extensive experience in Real Estate. Originally from Texas and graduated from College with BS degree. My husband and I relocated to the Brac in 1993. The Cottage is licensed by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. Pride is taken to make guests 'get-away' as perfect as possible, and the Cottage is fully furnished for a 'home away from home'. I have Caymanian Status and I am very familiar with Cayman Brac, the amenities that it offers, as well as the local residents, due to my long time residency on the Brac.
Why sue chose West End
Location, Location, Location: It is in the best location because it is within the ONLY barrier reef with a beautiful calm lagoon also allowing swimming and snorkeling in calm waters. This area provides walking distance to most of the amenities. Cayman Brac is a VERY safe Island with extremely friendly and helpful Caymanians. I purchased this property because of the outstanding location. It is reef protected, you can have a boat moored in front of your property, and it allows for calm water so it allows for water sports. The other areas of Cayman Brac do not always allow for entry into the water because of the high surges. My beach is great and I have hand sifted it for numerous years. I love the water, sand, coconut trees and beautiful vistas allowing me my own "little piece of paradise" Come and join me!!!
What makes this Cottage unique
The home offers 600 square feet of living space that includes 1 private bedroom, a spacious living/dining area, 1 bath, a fully equipped kitchen, and its own washer dryer. You do not need to bring anything except your shorts, t-shirts, sandals, and walking shoes. The property has shaded areas for relaxation and of course the beautiful beach with cooling breezes. My husband and I built the Cottage and made sure that it is comfortable and user friendly".

Great place on a sandy beach
The cottage has everything that you could need and Sue was able to get a double kayak for us to use. It is behind the main house so not strictly ocean view but a few steps to the water and you have a very nice patch of private sand with some shade and chairs. The lagoon here is protected by the barrier reef so the swimming is in calm water but you can also watch the waves curl on the reef. There is shallow snorkeling here where you can see lots of smaller juvenile fish, a few smaller barracuda hunting and some lobster and stingrays. The better shore snorkeling is in deeper water mostly on the north side like at radar reef. For scuba, I can recommend Brac Scuba Shack with boats that take groups of 10 or less. The diving here was great, lots of larger unafraid life because of the preserve and many wrecks to explore.
Lovely, comfortable and peaceful cottage
We returned to Cayman Cottage for 3 weeks in February, and were not disappointed as sometimes happens when you revisit a location.
The cottage was just as we remembered it from the year before, and our host Sue is a real star. Her beach must be the best on the island and is exclusively for her guests.
Wonderful venue, beautiful location, great weather, all the ingredients for a relaxed and peaceful vacation.
Sue's Cayman Brac Cottage
This cottage has everything you need to have a wonderful, relaxing vacation. All the household items, plenty of outdoor furniture for relaxing on the beach or in the shade. There is comfy hammock in the yard and a fantastic beach to spend hours in the sun or swimming or snorkeling. Sue makes your stay inviting and secluded. We spent 10 nights and wished we had booked more. There are roads for walking, restaurants and stores within walking or driving distance. Thanks again Sue for offering this paradise for getaways!!

Sue is a great lady who owns the cottage. She makes it so you have what you need during the stay.
Loved Cayman Cottage, We were very comfortable during our stay. The beach is the best on the island. Very private hardly anyone around.
Cleanest and best beach on the island. A reef runs first very close for small children.
Immaculate property, very quite. Coral reef encircles this and adjacent properties making it perfect for small children children and adults. Snorkeling and line or hand fishing allowed. Restaurant/bar within 800 feet , grocery within one mile. Cottage well maintained, well stocked, complete with cable TV, AC microwave, washer and dryer. Met with warm apple muffins and fresh coffee! Definately doing this again.
Fullfilling a dream
Only 3 nights but it was above my imagination. The cottage is big clean and confortable. Sue is so polite and helpful. And her beach - quite and inspiring. I wish I would come again.
The Cottage is in the 'Golden Mile' - south side/west end of Cayman Brac and the only single family rental home in this area. This is the best location offering easy walking to the Resort ,2 fine restaurants, 3 bars, gift shop, car rentals, dive operations and a wine and spirits store. The South side - West end offers beaches that do not require crossing 'ironshore' for access to the water. The Cottage has a folder wth information on all amenities that the Brac has to offer.
The major Resort 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.
