South Side house description
This is the perfect location on Cayman Brac's South Side. Built in 2000, this private vacation home/beach cottage is everything you are looking for and more. Listen to the never-ending rhythm of the gentle rolling waves just outside your door and feel the cooling breezes as you enjoy the warm sunshine on the reef-protected beach. Swim, sunbathe, snorkel, search for shells or just enjoy the beautiful sunsets.
Sapphire Surf has every convenience to make your vacation enjoyable. And since this is our vacation home, it has been maintained, equipped and cared for in a manner that will make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as you would imagine.
Do everything or nothing at all. You decide. Our favorite pastime is trying to name and describe the different layers of blue and turquoise water that constantly laps at the shore. Whether inside or out, the views, sights and sounds will captivate you. There is no ironshore or next-door neighbors here. But, there is plenty of privacy; except for the resident small yellow songbirds and the island native brown booby birds that seem to enjoy the lush, tropical surroundings as much as we do.
We provide our guests with a complete information guide to help make the most of your Brac vacation both before and during your island getaway.

My husband and I spent a very relaxing month at Sapphire Surf. The house was clean and very comfortable. Inside we had everything we really needed. There were lots of books and puzzles and the kitchen had all the basics. The bed was comfortable, there were lots of towels including beach towels. The bathrooms were nice. One thing I found quite odd, but was not an issue for us, as we were traveling alone, was that he master bedroom had open windows onto the living room, with only curtains to close them off. Not very private. The windows did provide a nice view of the ocean through the living room. The only 2 major issues we had with the place were: 1. there were no beach chairs and no hammock. The only outdoor furniture consisted of 4 little, cheap, plastic patio chairs and a few little plastic drink tables. As we were in the Caribbean to enjoy the outside, this was quite disappointing. I even contacted the owner to ask for a beach chair and the hammock but I did not hear back from her. I went and bought a plastic Adirondack -chair just to have something comfortable to sit on outside. 2. absolutely no sand at the beach, which in itself is ok, but because the water is so shallow and the breaking waves quite big, it is virtually impossible to get into deep enough water to swim (plus lots of sea urchins). Note - I am a strong swimmer, avid snorkeler and diver and not timid in the water and I did not want to swim there, although I tried a few times. The good things outside - the sound of crashing waves, great sunrises, absolute privacy, great curly tail lizards and hermit crabs, beautiful star filled sky and no biting insects!!! The location of house is great, close to the public beach which is great for swimming and snorkeling. Cayman Brac is an amazing island, with wonderful scenery, super friendly people, incredible snorkeling and diving. Worth the trip if you want to get a way from it all.

Manager response: We were so glad to hear that you had a relaxing vacation. Just for accurate clarification regarding the chairs,I received an email from you via your iPhone at 7:13 a.m. on February 18 asking me to have our on-island manager go and purchase long lounge chairs (pretty much those exact words). I found the request odd, but I did respond (even though you say I did not) at 4:39 p.m. on the same day--February 18--(I'm happy to share the email trail with anyone interested). I asked you to get back to me and tell me how much the chairs were. I never heard back from you. I even said I would contact Tibbett's store to give them a credit card, but no response from you. As for the cutouts from the bedroom to the living room...there are no curtains, there are blinds. When we bought the home, I wanted to see and hear the waves from the bedroom...that was our solution. We love it and so have all our guests. So, just wanted to set the record straight regarding the comment that I didn't reply to the chair reqest. I did and can prove it. I am a responsible owner and always work hard to ensure our guest's satisfaction.
A Wonderful Vacation
A Wonderful Vacation
What a wonderful place, just the right size and a perfect location. For a week in January we walked the beach each morning for a treasure chest full of shells, and fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves. The hammock will steal hours from your day with just the right amount of shade and sun. This is not a vacation rental, but your home by the sea. Well kept and well managed. The sandy public beach is just a moments drive away, but public is not correct because we were always the only ones there! Rent a car from 4D Car Rentals and explore the island to your heart’s content. If you want quiet seclusion and the chance to meet some wonderful, inviting and interesting locals the Brac is perfect for you. We made friends there and we didn’t want to leave!

We stayed here for Christmas break and had a wonderful time. Firstly, our interactions with the owner and the lovely lady who greeted us on the island were great. We were met on the island and directed by car to Sapphire Surf. We were given lots of super information to help us explore the island. If you like to get away from typical resorts, and have peace and privacy, this is the place for you. The house has everything you need for a relaxing stay, a well-equipped kitchen, and the best views of the ocean you could hope for. While the stores and amenities were just a short drive away, you really felt like you had total seclusion and serenity. We slept so well! Just FYI, the beach in front of the house is coral, not sand. However, it's interesting to examine all the cool looking coral rocks. There's a public sandy beach about a mile away that was almost totally deserted when we were there. Cayman Brac is definitely not a "tourist- driven" island, which suits me well. We enjoyed exploring the many caves and coastal walks on the island. Rare brown footed boobies would swoop by the house every day. It was nice to have things to do other than just lay on a beach. Sapphire Surf and the gorgeous Caribbean views will definitely live on in our memories for a long time.

my family stayed here and absolutely loved this house! my 2 year old daughter accidentally packed the TV remote and we had to send it back to them, but the owners were more than understanding about it. we had a great time and the location was perfect. we will definitely be coming back (maybe even on our next vacation)!

The house was perfect for our vacation--beautifully decorated & comfortable. Being able to fall asleep to the sound of the waves rolling in was magic! The dive shop at the Brac Reef Resort was great -- very professional and friendly. The dive sites are near pristine, unlike some reefs in the Caribbean. We look forward to a future trip to the Brac and staying at Sapphire Surf!!

We stayed at the Sapphire Surf for a week in February. It was everything we were hoping for and more! Loved being right on the water, and hearing the waves roll in. The hammock is awesome, especially at night under the stars. The home is well equipped and we would stay here again any time!
