South Side house description
New custom house with all the conveniences of home and located on a secluded southside beach property. Enjoy the recently installed pool and cabana. Everything is new.....granite counter tops throughout; all wood cabinets; beautiful wood and cedar beam vaulted ceilings throughout; king size bed in each bedroom with luxury linens; comfortable furniture that feels like home; dining table inside and outside. Kitchen is stocked with nice dishes, glasses, pots, pans, knives......everything you could need.
This home has a cozy, spa-like feel that calls you to relax and embrace 'island time'. We designed and built this home as our vacation/retirement home and spent a lot of time selecting materials and furnishings that are unique to the island and provide a sense of luxury, comfort and calmness. There are palm leaf ceiling fans in every room and central A/C.
The covered patio provides an outdoor extension of the main living area of the house. With the pool, outdoor dining table, comfortable chairs and complete privacy you may want to live outside. That's when the outdoor shower will come in handy.
Walk right off the patio to the water's edge. Two official reef dive sites and excellent snorkeling are accessible from the shore on a calm day. A secluded white sandy beech area lays adjacent to the iron shore that meets the water and the sound of the waves.
There are outdoor sinks to clean up all your dive equipment too and a custom made drying rack. With an acre of private, natural landscape and the breath taking views of the ocean you will not want to leave.
Despite its small 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, local bakery, dive operations, spa, boutique shops, fishing charters and excellent medical facilities (including a decompression chamber on island).

Hi Pam & Scott, First of all we would like to thank you for opening your house and allowing us to enjoy two perfect weeks. We’re both avid readers and it took over three days for us to even open a book. Your home is beautifully laid out; you have anticipated every need anyone using the house could require. The trip was seamless, Mylene met us at the airport, even patiently waited while we made two brief stops, food and drink…all the essentials! Interesting enough in week two we had a flat tire close to the public beach, called Mylene and she had someone there in 11 minutes….! The house is gorgeous, even with the temperature ranging from 80 - 90 degrees each day, we never turned on the a/c, or the TV for that matter. Jeffrey was very helpful as source of local information as well as anything to do with the house. As an example, we ran out of propane on the bbq on Saturday, Dennis delivered a tank direct to the house at 7pm on Sunday after being off island all day….incredible service! Most days we ventured out, hiked the trails, enjoyed the public beach, snorkeled, tried pretty much every restaurant/bar with Fathers Day dinner at the Anderson Hotel being our best dinner, the most amazing steak I have had. The best lunch would be the Tipsy Turtle, and the best bar would be a draw between the Coral Isle and Le Esperanza…plenty of cold beer, mojitos, and good rum! To further show how helpful and carrying people are, we were sitting at the bar in the Anderson Hotel enjoying a drink with the owners of the hotel when my cell phone rang. It was Captain Shelby, calling and telling me I had left the lights on my car which was parked out front. He even waited to make sure it would start before leaving! We had made arrangements for a snorkeling trip with him, as such he had my cell number….what great service! Our snorkeling trip over to Little Cayman with Captain Shelby was great, lots flying fish which at first glance look like birds, turtles, and some sort of huge ray came up to say hi, I was so shocked I don’t think I got a good pic…..lol Again thanks you so much for allowing the use of your home, I’m sure that comes with mixed emotions. We were very sad leaving, definitely something we will do again…and we wouldn’t change a thing! Paul & Angie Kitchener, ON

EXCELLENT!!! Very private, secluded property. The owners have thought of everything to make it truly feel like you are at home. Everything about TRANQUILITY, all the extra little touches show their love for this place and this island. They were so helpful answering all our questions before arrival and directing us to everything we needed once on the island.. Mylene, 4D car rental, Jeffery, house manager and jack of all trades, and Elaine, who came to the house for our massages, were all recommendations from Pam! Thank you so much!! The island has many different things to offer: caving, hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling, biking, kayaking, and hunting for the perfect shell/coral. While enjoying most of these, the decisions that we liked best were whether to lie in the sun by the pool, shade under the lanai or down by the crashing waves under the beachside cabana in the swings. What a life!!!!! Exceeded our expectations! Highly recommended!

perfect brac trip
perfect brac trip
Would not change a thing. Owner so kind and easy to work with. Had someone local for anything we needed. House fabulous, even better and seemed more spacious than photos. I miss the stunning view and crashing waves. Island is amazingly unique. Already booked another stay, and we usually don't go back to same place because there are so many great places to visit. We want more island hiking and diving. The home, "Tranquility", topped off a really great trip with it's many amenities and location. The price is so reasonable for what you get. Thanks Pam.

Exactly What We Were Looking For
Exactly What We Were Looking For
Tranquility was exactly what we were looking for, and more, for my family of 2 adults and 2 teens. Welcoming, yet remote and extremely private, we saw only one other person along the shore during our entire stay. Comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed. It was so nice that we would have been satisfied staying at the house and just scouting around on foot or bike, but Brac has so much to offer. We were Open Water Dive certified during our stay, and enjoyed several additional dives with Brac Scuba Shack (fantastic small operation), then came back to the house and really appreciated the rinse station for the gear and fantastic views while resting on the lanai and by the new pool. Every afternoon we then went on some sort of hike or exploration, and realized we barely scratched the surface. We found the place we'd like to return to again and again.

Tranquility Bay was everything we could have wanted from a vacation and more! Pam was very helpful with everything before hand, and even helped us set up a rental car on the island. The house was spacious, clean, and very secluded. We spent hours and hours just relaxing in the hammock, enjoying the view, enjoying the pool, and going for walks. It was nice to have the car to get into town but aside from your own groceries the house had any and everything you could want! We would recommend tranquility bay to anyone looking for a nice tranquil vacation experience. Thank you Pam!!

The bar for Tranquility was set high from a friend that had stayed on the property. After hearing about how magnificent the house is and the setting on Cayman Brac, I was afraid my expectations may have been unrealistically high. The actual experience was even better than I could have hoped. Tranquility is nicely laid out for families and or couples traveling together, the setting is picture perfect, and the details have not been overlooked. Highlights of the property include: Very nice King suites with accompanying baths. The beds were very comfortable and featured high-end bedding, the sheets were unbelievably soft and as smooth as silk. The living space is well designed and comfortable (both inside and out on the lanai). The kitchen is beautiful and centrally located in the house. It features high-end appliances, granite counter tops, and fantastic drinking water out of the drinking water filter. The meticulous workmanship and extra details make this home very comfortable, relaxing and inviting. The owners were very easy to work with, organized, and couldn't have been more helpful! I give the highest recommendation for the property for anyone seeking a vacation that is off the beaten path. It will exceed the highest of expectations.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tranquility. It is a private, spacious, clean and comfortable home, with all the amenities. It was definitely one of the nicest places we have stayed. The owners were very helpful, providing helpful information about the island, allowing use of their kayaks and bikes, and readily available for questions. We dove 8 days with Brac Divers and had a wonderful time. We can recommend Cayman Brac and this specific property without any reservations at all!

A Magical Place
A Magical Place
A magical house on a magical island…Tranquility is a great house to rent as the owners lovingly thought of your almost every need ahead of time. The owners answered every question quickly and have on island management in place. The house has a great location, great layout, clean, stocked with all the staples and best of all, screens to keep out possible pesky biting bugs. While we visited, there was often a nice breeze, but the bugs love me and screens are really important to us. The air conditioning was really good, but sometimes you just want the island air. At the back of the house is a huge lanai where we ate some of our meals and enjoyed the sound of the surf. If you visit the Brac, consider Tranquility as your vacation home, you won’t be disappointed! Leona and Jim Chicago, IL February 2012

This home is perfectly named TRANQUILITY!!!!
This home is perfectly named TRANQUILITY!!!!
This vacation home was everything it claimed to be .Many high end finishes that we spoiled Americans have come to love! Also was well stocked with towels and many other items you could need. Pam and Scott have made a perfect rental spot for a family or two couples. The extra large lanai was the perfect place to relax and read a book or wine and dine! It provided partial sun and shade with a lovely breeze off the ocean. Also, after dark, it is perfect for star gazing and we saw many satelites go over. Amazing all you can see with no light polution!!!!! The owners were very helpful and directed us to the best car rental. Also Mylene, with the car rental, set us up with someone to cook us an authentic Bracian meal. We had a lovely vacation and the shore dives were plentiful and easy to get to. Thank you for renting us and sharing your vacation home!

About the owner: We live in Colorado and love the mountain views from our home. We figured the only better place on earth would be a pristine island with 180 degree views of the ocean. Now we have both! We have a small Environmental Consulting business that keeps us busy and helps support our Green desires and ambitions. As such our Brac house was built with Green goals in mind.
Why the Owner Chose South Side:
We found Brac on a dive trip in 2004 and fell in love with the island and the people. Diving is spectacular and we haven't found anything to beat it. We love hiking the bluff, biking around the island, taking the kayaks out and mostly relaxing on the covered patio.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the privacy and calmness of our house and property. Tranquility is what we feel when we are there.
