  • This is the place you want to be.

    "This is the most well thought out villa we have ever stayed at. Each room has its own full bathroom. Everything you need is very tastefully selected clean and well laid out. Washer and dryers are top notch. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen and living areas have everything a large group of people need for entertainment. Very easy walk to all beaches in that area…we walked everyday to the California lighthouse and along LG Smith Dr to watch the sunset.There is a constant breeze so reading and relaxing around the pool was like being in heaven, even on the hottest days. We ate all our meals on the patio by the pool as it was very pleasant. You only need a car for exploring the island as the bus passes outside your door and the beaches are steps away. If you love snorkeling, then look no further. There are at least 4 spots to choose from and we walked to all of them everyday. These spots can get crowed certain days of the week when cruise ships are in port so pick your time. This is a villa that will go at the top of our list for future trips. We really liked the surrounding areas as it was beautiful, and quiet amid some of Aruba's most prestigious homes. We told all our friends and family about this lovely villa it is spacious and private and well suited for couples and families. Our appreciation to Anneke the manager and her staff, for their kindness and attention from day. Thanks for making our Aruba vacation an unforgettable one."

  • Our first trip to T&C - but won't be our last -already dreaming about returning next year!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing vacation spent at "Columbus Cottage" The whole experience; the Island, the house/pool, amazing beach, the restaurants and the people really exceeded our expectations! We immediately felt so comfortable and relaxed in your peaceful Island paradise. The location was perfact - even without a car, the taxi works ok- we now know what to expect for next time! It's Island Time... Spent the mornings at the beach, short walk nice way to start the day. The beach is amazing and private... afternoons poolside :), and went into town for dinner usually timing with a sunset view over the water. Many wonderful restaurants to choose from! We didnt feel the need to do any tours, golf or explore as expected since we were perfactly content with the total bliss right there within easy reach! Denise was very warm and welcoming, genuinely concerned for our well being - she thoughtfully had a bouquet of flowers and an anniversary card awaiting us when we arrived! - and was nice enough to make arrangements with a taxi driver for our needs throughout the week. We loved the beautiful furnishings in the 'cottage' - But have to say, the private pool was our favorite perk! The setting is very private even though there are neighbors on both sides -can't see homes from property. Thank you also for providing the WIFI - It was helpful to be able to check in. The home also provided plenty of security if that is a concern - although it's in a quiet neighborhood - we felt fine.. This was our 1st "home" rental so we were initially a bit cautious but Jane was very personable, responsive and provided us with plenty of info in advance to satisfy our concerns...seem like lovely people. Looking forward to a return visit!"

  • Best in the Brac

    "Having visited the Brac several times staying at different places, I knew when our dive group needed a non-resort place to stay, that Secluded Sunsets might fit the bill. We rented the entire house for two weeks and was it ever a vacation to remember. The pictures of the place do not prepare you for just how pretty the property is. You began to relax as soon as you arrived at the house. Our group consisted of both adults and kids, divers and non-divers. There was something for everyone at Henry's place. The kids loved the many games, open yard and beach. The adults enjoyed chillin under the Tiki hut, taking the kayaks out for a paddle and getting away from the rat race of daily life. Everyone enjoyed the pool with the sunshades making it usable all during the day. (While the breezes are nice, the sun will toast you to a crisp if you are not careful.) We mostly did shore diving from different places around the island using Brac Scuba Shack. Following Henry's advice, we brought some food and drink from the US and used the very well stocked kitchen for cooking most of our meals. While the island is small, getting around to the dive sites, bank, stores, caves and other places to visit would have been very hard without renting a car. Henry was a wonderful host and came by to check on us several times during our stay, answering our many questions with the knowledge of someone who has spent time getting to really know the island. The information Henry provided about the island and how to best enjoy our vacation was spot on and made this trip a delight. As members of our group have traveled all over the world, expectations were high, but Henry and his property exceeded this and I can see us coming back again. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from the rat race, enjoy some world class diving, spend time exploring a wonderful island and it's people or just relaxing in the sun, then Secluded Sunsets in Cayman Brac is for you."

  • Breathtaking views from this Coral Bay villa

    "The road leading up to Villa Tiffany is ridiculous- A Jeep is absolutely required. That being said-it's the price paid for a seriously spectacular view! We stayed over the Christmas holiday. J.Miller met us at the Jeep rental company in Cruz Bay, and led us to the villa. He was very professional throughout the booking process and for the duration of our stay. The villa was very clean and updated. Beds were comfortable. Laundry room was stocked with detergent- it came in handy throughout the week. Pool and hot tub offered great views of Coral Bay. We spent our days exploring many fantastic beaches, however, so they remained unused. Villa was equipped with ample bath/beach towels, beach chairs and coolers. The kitchen was well-stocked and we were provided w/ some spices, dish soap and sugar for coffee. Be sure to buy your groceries in Cruz Bay at the Starfish market-it is expensive, but offers the best selection on the entire island. There are a couple of tiny markets in Coral Bay, but they are extremely pricey and don't have much to offer. Our goal for this trip was to RELAX and enjoy the beaches. Mission accomplished! We packed a picnic lunch each morning, and then headed out to a different beach every day. Jumbie Bay (next to Trunk Bay) was our favorite. A short hike to the beach, and very few people. You have to arrive early (before 10) to secure one of the few parking spots. Sand is beautiful here and the snorkeling is great-We liked it better than Trunk Bay. Rent your snorkel gear from Crabby's in Coral Bay. Salt Pond bay (on the south east side of the island) is close to the villa and our second favorite spot. Miss Lucy's is on the way back home, and offers a delicious grouper reuben and painkiller cocktail for an early dinner. Cinnamon Bay beach is gorgeous. Leinster Bay (and Watermelon Cay) offered the best snorkeling, but the beach area is really rocky so wear something on your feet and bring bug spray. The Popular Skinny Legs is also in Coral Bay-great family friendly bar that also has a couple of small little shops to pick up a vacation t shirt. We didn't think the food was that great, but did stop for drinks a couple of times. Worth noting- 2 bedrooms are only accessible from outside the villa. Good to know if you have younger kids. Overall, very happy with the villa and had a wonderful trip. Yes, you will see lizards here and there and a few bugs, but remember that you are in the tropics and take it in stride!"
