"We spent a wonderful 10 days in the cottage and exploring the beautiful island beyond. The place was spotless and contained everything we needed to make our vacation perfect -- from cookware to coolers to guidebooks and an outdoor charcoal grill. All exactly as advertised. The cottage is located in a quiet part of this quiet island, with both sunrises and sunsets visible from the oceanside deck. Neighbors are just on one side, and they were there just one evening. As others have noted, swimming directly in front of the cottage isn't the easiest, due to shallow water and a lot of spiny sea urchins. Wear sneakers or watershoes and there'll be no problem. Walk a few steps to the left and entry is a lot easier. We spent nearly all our time snorkeling at a dozen or so spots up and down the shore, where entry and exit are especially easy thanks to ladder-equipped carve-outs in the rock. Plenty to see in the water, too, and each site seemed to offer something different. We went twice to the sandy public beach on the opposite side of the island and we had the place to ourselves both times. Most of the time we were happy to eat in, though we also hit some of the local restaurants plus one of the island's two resorts. Very friendly people everywhere. I guarantee we'll be back!"Guest: Brad Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: June 3, 2014View listing
"This was the perfect place for our family of three. After spending two nights in Grand Cayman, we found this quiet place in Cayman Brac to much more appealing. My wife and I would go snorkeling right out front of the property every morning before our daughter woke up and then would go snorkeling most of the day either outside the property or other places around the island. Perfect for shore diving with several dive sites right off the shore. A big thanks to the land lady. We enjoyed seeing her everyday and being able to ask her questions or for help at any time. She was great! The apartment was VERY clean. My wife is very picky about cleanliness and was very pleased with how clean everything was. We rented the Azure and could see the ocean from the bed room windows. If you are looking for a place to relax away from the busy resorts but still enjoy the ocean, this is great. We really enjoyed the week we stayed and would recommend this place to anyone that enjoys privacy in an remote location with a beautiful ocean just outside the apartment. We hope to have the opportunity to stay there again."Guest: Russ Date of Stay: April 2011 Review Submitted: April 14, 2011View listing
"Recently returned from 2 weeks at "South Side". We were looking for a house that was quiet and secluded and allowed us to relax and enjoy our holiday. We were not disappointed! The House is at the far end of the island (still within 15 minutes of the airport, stores, and diving) and very quiet. It is beachfront and has a pool right off the porch. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you could need, it has some basic supplies in the frig as well as some spices etc... in the cupboard. It even has a functioning ice maker! The bedrooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The internet access was a little tricky as we had to go out to the driveway to get a good connection but understand that this may be remedied in the near future. Overall, we loved the house and hope to return soon!"Guest: Melinda P. Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 23, 2014View listing
"After a busy wedding week, we stayed at the cottage for two weeks for our honeymoon. It was the best place we could have picked. The location was fabulous with the crystal blue, bath water temperature ocean right out our front door. We kayaked, snorkeled and lounged around in hammocks under the cabana for hours until we retreated to our private cottage. With full kitchen, plenty of fans, a comfortable king sized bed and deck with a hot tub, we were more than comfortable. We had fresh coconut water every day from the many trees that decorate the property. The rest of our time was spent driving around in our pink rental car and flying to Little Cayman for more beautiful scenery. It was the most relaxing, rejuvenating and memorable vacation I have ever had!"Guest: Honeymooner2014 Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 18, 2014View listing

Cayman Brac Resorts Offer Access to an Underwater Heaven
The Caymans are widely hailed as one of the world’s top dive sites. The 100-foot plus visibility, warm ocean temperatures and magnificent coral reefs are just a few of the attractions. The rich marine life, impressive walls and wrecks scattered in the shallows complete the perfect dive destination. Here, the diving is not limited by the number of sites; rather it’s only the need to re-oxygenate your body that will keep you out of the water. You can also take the opportunity to advance your diving certification by doing specialty dive courses with one of the local dive schools during your stay. The wreck of a Cuban naval frigate was sunk off the north west coast is 1996 and is already an impressive artificial reef.
For those not comfortable with donning scuba gear, snorkeling offers a great alternative. Be sure to lather up with loads of sunscreen as once you’re in the water, you’re likely to stay there for hours on end. Brightly colored corals and millions of reef fish swirl around you in a magical dance.
The Caymans are also known as world-class sport fishing islands. Charters that take you out to the deep blue waters can easily be arranged from the marinas on Cayman Brac. Visitors are asked to respect the marine park restrictions and to not waste marine resources. Certain areas on the island are protected and charters will generally take you far away from these areas. However, if you are fishing on your own or from the shore, be sure to familiarize yourself with the marine park boundaries and regulations.
Enjoy Nature Trails on Cayman Brac
The island has some dramatic and very beautiful landscapes. On the eastern side of the island, there are nature trails that follow the coastline long the bluff.
