Bamboo Bay house description

Located on the more desirable North 'sunset' side which generally enjoys consistantly calmer water, the house is far enough up from West end airport to insure peace & quiet day round. This property is considered one of the most beautiful pieces of oceanfront land on the island with a wide natural soft sand beach. Our waterfront is not rough ironshore like most properties & is not covered with rocks. Boasting 350 ft. of utterly private ocean front, the house is surrounded by 3.5 acres of old growth sea grape, coconut, mahogany, thatch palm & almond tree forest. The house is high up affording spectacular veiws. This property is truly unique; you will not find another beach front rental property with this much genuine privacy, this class of unobstructed views, breathtaking sunsets, soft sandy beach, ease of water access and utterly superior shoal reef snorkeling in four feet of water right off the shoreline. The large beach side hammock hut tops everything off. Absolutely Brac's best!


In an often stressful and scary world Cayman Brac is an island offering genuine friendliness, devoid of crime, where people don't lock their doors or even take the keys out of their cars. From the white sandy beaches of the West End to the rugged cliffs of the East End, the clear blue Caribbean Sea surrounds you in all directions and there is an amazing array of activities to fill your days, or just relax in a hammock on your own private beach.

With what are arguably the most progressive environmental protection policies in the Caribbean & virtually no soil or chemical run off from agricultural activities, Cayman Brac boasts some of the most pristine and dramatic snorkeling & scuba diving in the world in crystal clear water averaging 100 ft visibility. Dramatic cliffs, unique to Cayman Brac alone, provide endless opportunity for hiking, caving & climbing. For the nature lover there is unique flora & fauna including an amazing number of native & migratory bird species easily observable at the islands various nature preserves. And your just a short boat ride or ten minute flight away from more adventure on Brac’s sister island of Little Cayman.

Despite Bracs diminutive size and very small population, nearly every service you could need or want is available. There are well stocked grocery stores, a good selection of restaurants & bars featuring local entertainment, dive operations, fishing charters and excellent medical facilities (including a decompression chamber on island).

                      Car: Recommended

                      Located on the more convenient & desirable North side in a peaceful, quiet non-commercial area mid-island, this home is far enough away from the West end to avoid the noise of airplanes landing & taking off daily, and not so far up the East end or remote South side that a run to the store for a forgotten item is an inconvenience. You’re as close as a bike ride to a grocery store in either direction, and getting to restaurants, bars, hotels & dive operations are just minutes by car. Only the North side has sunsets!!

                      Other Activities: caving, rock climbing, birding, hiking, biking

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: Born and raised in Hawaii, I moved to Stockholm, Sweden in 1990. One winter was all the motivation needed to begin a comprehensive search for a suitably located winter home. The Cayman Islands and Cayman Brac in particular, singularly fulfilled all our criteria. We wanted a home in a place with dramatic, pristine, natural beauty in a friendly, peaceful, quiet and safe environment. Having spent my life traveling the world I can honestly say that Cayman Brac is perhaps one of the most special little islands you will ever have the privilege of visiting. In an often stressful and scary world Cayman Brac is an island offering genuine friendliness, devoid of crime, where people don't lock their doors or even take the keys out of their cars. From the white sandy beaches of the West End to the rugged cliffs of the East End, the clear blue Caribbean Sea surrounds you in all directions and there is an amazing array of activities to fill your days with, or just relax in a hammock on your own private beach.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bamboo Bay:
                      With what are arguably the most progressive environmental protection policies in the Caribbean & virtually no soil or chemical run off from agricultural activities, Cayman Brac boasts some of the most pristine and dramatic snorkeling & scuba diving in the world in crystal clear water averaging 100 ft visibility. Dramatic cliffs, unique to Cayman Brac alone, provide endless opportunity for hiking, caving & climbing. For the nature lover there is unique flora & fauna including an amazing number of native & migratory bird’s species easily observable at the islands various nature preserves. And your just a short boat ride or ten minute flight away from more adventure on Brac’s sister island of Little Cayman. And despite its diminutive size and very small population, nearly every service you could need or want is available. There are well stocked grocery stores, a good selection of restaurants & bars featuring local entertainment, dive operations, fishing charters and excellent medical facilities (including a decompression chamber on island).
