Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Spacious and beautifully decorated... Comfort is the priority at Seafan Meadows.

Large open rooms; showers so roomy a curtain isn't needed; the gourmet-level kitchen stocked with organic whole-bean coffee, delicious olive oil and other staples; the audiophile sound-system serving 10,000 CDs stored on the in-house, wireless PC. Wii console, extra controllers and Wii Sports, X Box 360, upscaling DVD player with ~300 movies from the 'best of' lists for kids, adults, the whole family. These are the highlights of the amenities awaiting you!

Relax by the pool; virtually chlorine-free with the ionization purifier. Cruise the coast or up on the Bluff by bicycle or the included minivan. Plan a meal around just-caught fish and locally grown produce; you'll know who to check with. Derwin Scott, our local partner, born and raised on Cayman Brac, very 'well traveled' himself... he can 'clue you in' on all the details of the island, and more!

You set the pace at Seafan Meadows.

Our location...Bamboo Bay; handy to everything on Cayman Brac... mid - island on the North shore, within walking distance of the main crossroad. The 150' bluff and settlement of Spot Bay to the East, sunsets to the West.

On 2 acres of preservation property, attracting a flock of Cayman Brac parrots from the bluff to feed nearly every afternoon, Seafan Meadows offers you a wonderfully private seclusion (no neighbors in sight,) while being handy to wherever you might (ad)venture. You're not alone if you wish for fishing, diving or offshore snorkling. Fantastic excursions await with the 20' 115 HP boat, captained by our partner, a certified dive-master and lifelong local fisherman; diving trips where you call the shots... ready to move on? Let's go!

Wade off the beach to snorkel the near-shore reef, kayak out a short way to view the sea fan meadow, and the drop-off; or arrange a full diving or fishing holiday with the best guide / divemaster on the island.

You'll gain all the benefit of our 40 year love-affair with Cayman Brac.

About The Owner

Our family loves to travel and adventure. When we discovered the option of staying at a private property our vacations came alive. The ability to get to know our destinations is so enhanced by the 'ground - level' experience. Just a few introductions to the local folk and we have the 'in' to share the news and stories that make each place unique and special.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Cayman Islands

We've been visiting Cayman Brac for over 40 years and have made so many dear friends on this 'rock' of an island. Having visited a fair number of other Caribbean islands we've come to realize that the Brac is truly unique as a destination. The isolation of the Caymans has encouraged a self - sufficient population of 'can do' people. There's never been a neighboring island to turn to during hard times. The combination of remaining a British Dependency and the more recent successes in off-shore banking and tourism has resulted in a standard of living that rivals any developed society. Education and civility are taken very seriously.

What really separates Cayman Brac, though, is that it has not been ruined by 'tourism development'... There have never been more than two modest resorts or the large condominium projects that can so spoil a culture. The people of the Brac are pleased to meet you and are glad to make your visit as special as their island home truly is.

What makes this house unique

This home and property are legend on the island! From the winding driveway (Why wouldn't you just cut it straight?!) to the massive roof beams... and 'so many windows!' When we realized it was time for 'a place of our own' we looked at every option, every property. Finding Seafan Meadows brought home the realization that we'd be hard pressed to better design our second home... and there's nothing even close in existence. Originally designed and built in the late 80's by architect Robert Poyas as his 'dream home,' every attention was made to the details that make it perfect. We took the attitude that since this is first and foremost our home, that we'd go ahead and furnish / equip it with that in mind. The result is that Seafan Meadows offers pleasant surprises everywhere you turn. You'll find everything you need... and more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Karl, Larry and I just returned to a cold, rainy Washington state after two lovely weeks at Seafan Meadows. We had a great time. Your house and property are perfect. Everything - the gravel in the yard, the pool and shades, the BBQ, the beach, all the wonderful stuff in the kitchen, the fans in the bedrooms - it was just very easy to stay and hard to leave.

The diving was great - many of the sites are as good or better as those in Little Cayman. Unfortunately, we didn't snorkel much because it was very windy for most of our stay.

So we just had to hang around by the pool and beach and read - hmmmm.

An amazing house on a great island!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back form a week at Cha-Che's place and it was simply perfect. The house is set up really well so it's open and airy, yet you have privacy when you need it. The kitchen is really well equipped and open to the rest of the house, so cooking becomes a social activity. The grill out back got put to a lot of good use as well, since we had bocce tournaments by the pool every evening at sunset. The snorkeling off their beach is great, but wear your water shoes--lots of urchins! The house is just well equipped, you really need of nothing--and Cha-Che is a dream to work with--great communication and quick responses. I've rented from VRBO, Homeaway and their worthy competitor many, many times and Seafan most certainly standout. Thanks Cha-Che and Derwin for a fabulous holiday.

Amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

FIrst off, Cha Che is great to work with. Very professional, warm, pays attention to detail on the booking and information regarding the island and house, etc. So helpful. Now, the house. Truly amazing! It is everything you see on the website and of course, even better in person. There were six of us and the house was so roomy that we could all find our own space if we needed it. The pool is perfect, the view worth a million dollars. Every picture I posted on FB had all of my friends wanting to be there. The kitchen is very well equipped, as promised There is an extra refrigerator that was used for the adult beverages that were needed for our stay. So handy to have as we filled the other with food, imagine that! The beds and pillows were very comfy and the two bathrooms were very big and roomy, both with double vanities. There is an endless supply of towels so never a worry there. Wifi was available when needed as promised. Derwin was very helpful with any questions we had about the house or the island. And having the van to use was a great bonus. No other houses that I have rented make that offer. Barry's Jerk chicken near the airport is so delicious that we had to go back for more! They serve the famous round bread with the chicken. It's very good and is made at Pioneer Bakery, just a few miles from Sea Fan, next to the police station. They also make wonderful cinnamon rolls and meat pies. You should stop in and see for yourself. The island is so friendly and inviting and it seems like most people know each other:) Sea Fan is a great vacation home and I would recommend this to anyone that is planning to visit Brac. You will never want to leave.

Thank you Cha Che, for opening up your home to us. We loved it.

A True Island Gem

  • 5 of 5

WOW! There are just no words to describe this place. This home is perfectly located, beautifully decorated and fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The best snorkeling is right outside your back door. Just don't forget your water shoes! The swimming pool is the perfect place to unwind with a daiquiri or a nice glass of wine. There are 3 liquor stores on the island-Miss Mary Lou's, Big Daddy's and Island Man Rum Shop. Pretty sure we hit them all. There are also 3 main grocery stores-Market Place, Kirkconnell's and Billy's. Don't be surprised if you have to stop at all 3 to get everything on your list. But hey, that's the fun part! If you're looking for a good Ribeye to throw on that super cool outdoor grill though, you can pretty much forget it. May want to consider packing a cooler of meat, which can be checked as luggage but must be packed frozen and in its original packaging. On the days you don't feel like cooking there are a few restaurants worth mentioning. Brac Reef Resort is home to The Palm (Friday nights are BBQ night) and The Tipsy Turtle (great bar menu). Eats & Treats (burgers and ice cream) and PoPo Jeb's (pizza) both deliver. Star Island is a great breakfast choice. If you need cash there is one bank on the island. The 24 hour ATM gives you a choice of US$ or CI$. When you're out and about be sure to check out the caves (don't forget your flashlights)! Peter's cave is spectacular and filled with a rich and interesting history. Rebecca's cave was also one of our faves. If you're wanting to feel the sand between your toes, the one and only Public Beach is the perfect spot for that. Tons of hermit crabs there too! The Lighthouse is the gateway to the most breathtaking views you'll ever see. Take your camera! Derwin was also amazing. He was very attentive and made himself readily available to answer any questions we had. On our second to last day, we took a boat ride with Derwin to Point of Sand on Little Cayman. We spent the entire day snorkeling, fishing and picnicking. It was hands down our favorite and most memorable part of the trip. Thank you Derwin! Before you leave the island, if it's the last thing you do, take a trip to NIM Things. There you'll be met by Tenson Scott, the owner and maker of the most interesting and unique necklaces. Just give yourself at least an hour as he's quite the story teller! Thank you, Cha-che, for all tips prior to our trip, the use of your car, and the sharing your beautiful home!

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed! We have rented homes all over the world and this one was a stand out! Everything was clean and new, the kitchen had EVERYTHING you will need and much more. I felt at home and loved using the nice ceramic serving dishes. The pool was the perfect place to chill out and there were floats and plenty of different chairs to choose from. Derwin, there on island point person was a doll! Having a car to drive around was a total bonus too!

perfection

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh...I can't say enough about this home! It's in the perfect location. It is situated on the north side of the island and the ocean was amazing...we drove over to the south side (a whole 2 miles away) and the ocean was rough white caps everywhere all down the south side! We attempted to snorkel at the public beach but it was too much so we headed back to the other side and it was perfect! Met a lot of amazing locals, make sure you visit Nims and talk with Mr. Scott he has quite a few stories to share. The family is planning on getting dive certified so we can return in the very near future. Can't wait!! The house was perfect, the ocean was spectacular, and the island is amazing!!

Great home on a great Island

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have visited many of the Carribean islands over the years and have found Cayman Brac to be one of the best vacation destinations of them all. The residents of the island go out of there way to make you feel wlecome. It is one of the cleanest and safest destinations we have traveled to. The same can be said about Sea Fan Meadows. This property is owned and managed by people who truly care that you have a great vacation experience. The home is well cared for and contains everything you need whether you want to prepare a great meal or have fun at the pool. We enjoyed the birdwatching at the east end and diving at the west end of the island. I would highly recommend Brac Scuba Shack for those who are interested in divng while on the island. We will definitely plan another trip to Sea Fan Meadows in the future.
