WONDERFUL! What a find Cayman Cottage was!

  • 5 of 5

What a joy! We stayed for 3 weeks in February and thoroughly relaxed in this beautiful little cottage with it's own wonderful private beach. The cottage is really well equipped and very clean and comfortable. This place is a perfect getaway for peace and seclusion and long lazy days, but there are plenty of activities if you wish. The owner Sue is extremely kind and helpful and we shall definitely return next year, and we feel we have made a good friend. We truly loved every moment of our holiday and highly recommend Sue's cottage.

A GREAT ADVENTURE

  • 5 of 5

My vacation in the Cayman Islands and my stay at the Cayman Cottage on Cayman Brac was one of my best vacation experiences in recent years. Fabulous sight seeing and some of the best diving in the world - made this a truly unforgettable experience. In my opinion the cottage offers the best accommodation on Cayman Brac. Clean, airy and quiet with a resourceful (long time) owner who can offer plenty of recommendations for activities that will provide any level of activity that you may want. I especially enjoyed socializing with the locals, exploring and just relaxing on the beautiful, private beach.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Cayman Cottage-for 6 nights-the cottage is very clean, well equipped, and comfortable. Most important, cottage is on beautiful beach!!! The water is gorgeous!!! Our favorite snorkeling/fishing spot is 5 mins away ( at the most). We had a great time snorkeling, fishing ( my husband), swimming, driving around/exploring island ( including caves and blowhole), observing big iguanas, hiking, etc... We loved how there is no crime-so everyone leaves their doors/windows open ( including leaving keys in car's ignition!). We totally loved the small island experience and the cottage and owner ( Sue) was great. Sue was very nice, helpful and informative. We needed a grill and small ice chest-and Sue provided!! Totally recommend!!!

A beach for watching sunrise and sunset

  • 5 of 5

We were at Cayman cottage this past February and our only mistake was staying such a short time (5 nights). It was so beautiful and restful. Sue's property is very private and well stocked. It was clean and organized, with a pleasant living room, eating area, kitchen and very comfortable bed. Just outside there is a pleasant eating area and hammock. We loved sitting on the beach to watch sunrise or sunset. We also enjoyed snorkeling right in front of the property, which felt very safe and private. Sue was very pleasant and so helpful. We found that we could manage without having rented a car; we were able to walk to stores and restaurants and walk to rent bikes at the Scuba Shack. When we return we may rent a car for a few days to explore the Island more; some of the bike rides felt very long given the single speed bikes and the head winds. We are also tempted to return and learn to scuba dive. Sue's property is ideal for a couple, and also for two or three friends, or a family of three.

Wherever we ventured each day, we were always so glad to come home to Sue's and settle in for the evening. We did not grill but everything was there if we had wanted to do so. It felt like we had our own private place on Cayman Brac although we were on visitors. We hope to return in the future.

Your own little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I am not sure what else I can say to go along with what most other folks have said here about the cottage. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

A friend and I stayed there for nearly three weeks. We went to Cayman Brac for the amazing rock climbing the little island has to offer. The island is supremely laid back, so this is truly a spot if you’re looking for some down time from…well, everything.

We picked the cottage due to the high ratings given on this site and as I have already alluded, were not let down. The cottage has everything you need, is clean, quiet and comfortable. Sue is an awesome host and if you are willing to get out and meet some folks, she knows everyone, so, don’t be shy.

We also explored most of the island and I will guarantee that you will not find a more private, hand sifted, beautiful beach. With amazing sunrises AND sunsets, her location is perfect. As mentioned in other reviews, the snorkeling is also fantastic and safe due to the natural protection of the reef not far off the shoreline…and it’s all 50 paces out the front door. Not to mention it is very close (you can see it from the driveway) to the beer/liquor store, and a fun little bar/restaurant called the Captain’s Table. Actually, you are close to just about everything this beautiful little island has to offer.

If you want to really see the island though, I recommend renting a vehicle, Sue knows some folks and will be happy to help. You can get a discount just from simply staying at the cottage.

Once again, I couldn't speak more highly of the cottage, location, and genuine hospitality that Sue and really everyone we met through her showed us. There are so many more positive things that could be said about staying at the cottage. You'll just have to come experience it for yourself. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Thank you soooo much Sue, we hope to see you sooner than later!

Dave

The Cottage is in the 'Golden Mile' - south side/west end of Cayman Brac and the only rental home in this area. This is the best location offering easy walking to Resorts, 3 fine restaurants, 4 bars, 2 gift shops, 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 hotel 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.
