First class accommodation
Wonderful view property with excellent amenities. Pool is fabulous. Love the hammocks at the water's edge
First time we spent 2 weeks in Brac. Could not have asked for a nicer home. View from the pool was fantastic. House was fully furnished. Owner was great to work with. We did bring lots of food - however the store was fairly close. Ice maker was huge for us. Bakery on the other side of the island was a wonderful find we visited often. North side was better for both shore diving and snorkeling. We definitely will be back to Captains Cove!!
Serene and beautiful
I'm in the Brac Airport writing this... Lovely home and perfect location. Seriously considered contacting the owner to see if the house was available a second week. Highly recommend this home although the Internet connection required us to cross the street. Maybe a blessing in disguise! Will definitely return to Brac and to The Captains Cove.
Fantastic get-away with everything you need!
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!
Amazing time on the Brac!
We've just returned home from a week on the Brac & and can't wait to give a review! Captain's Cove was THE perfect vacation home! It is exactly as is described in the listing. The owners were wonderfully easy to work with, had lots of great travel tips & were very patient with our questions and schedule changes. The views from the house are breathtaking! The best way to wake up in the morning is with a cup of coffee on the veranda while watching the waves crash. Although...beware the outside door doorknobs! While locked on the outside, they still turn on the inside. There were a couple of mornings I forgot to unlock them & locked myself on the veranda - not a bad place to be stuck - & had to wait for my niece to wake & let me in. As groceries on the Brac are very expensive, the owners had a great tip of taking dried soups & the like in our suitcases & a cooler of meats to help keep costs low. That worked out brilliantly & we were able to supplement with supplies from the local grocery. The water is perfectly fine to drink straight from the tap, shower in or wash clothes.The house is fully stocked with whatever else you may need while there. Our first night we had a strong storm that knocked out electricity to the island (only for about a half hour) & we were even able to find flashlights, candles & lighters! I understand you could shore dive right in front of the house, but the water was really too rough for us to get into. Not a big deal because there are so many other beautiful sites! You will need a car, good walking shoes & good water shoes. Once you've mastered driving on the left & dodging crabs/iguanas/chickens, it's easy to get around. Definitely check out the Brac Reef Resort for a great beach & diving/snorkeling tours. Take the above mentioned flashlight to their dock after sunset to watch the eagle rays & tarpons! Scott's Dock & Buccaneer Bay on the West End are easy, beautiful snorkeling sites. Go up to the lighthouse one day to walk along the top of the bluff, see parrots & nesting boobies & then stay for the most amazing sunset you'll ever see! Be sure to stop by the Alexander on Tuesday nights for their all-you-can-eat BBQ, the Captain's Table for the Cayman Mama's (no driving afterwards!) & conch fritters and Popojeb's for a slice of pizza! Cayman Brac is definitely for relaxation & adventure and Captain's Cove is the perfect place to revitalize & get ready to do it all again the next day!
College Grad family celebration
The house was beautiful, very clean and had any kitchen accessory you would ever need. Working with the owners was very easy and very helpful. The house is located on the Southside 7 miles from the West End where most of the restaurants and dive operators are located so a rental car was needed as we did like to go out to dinner. Simple drive just had to watch out for the many crabs crossing in the evening. Pool was wonderful as there were high winds and the waves were really big so swimming off the shore was a challenge. Even with the high winds Brac Scuba Shack did dives every day we just went around to the other side of the island. We would highly recommend this smaller and more personal dive shop. Overall everyone had a great time would definitely go back with the family!
