West End House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, (Sleeps 9-14) - ALL GUEST REVIEWS ARE '5-STAR'

This package rental consists of (2) one-bedroom units and (1) two-bedroom unit (the entire property). See my other VRBO listings for separate rentals of the (1) two-bedroom unit or either of the (2) one-bedroom units. The two-bedroom unit and (1) of the one-bedroom units can also be rented together for a total of three bedrooms. This rental is for a package of three separate units on the same property. What will your vacation be like? Read the prior guest reviews and see whats being said; 54 reviews and not one negative comment! I have to say 'this is the best rental on the island' - given it has only received 5-star reviews and it has more reviews then any other rental property for two years in a row.

Included in the rental: high speed wi-fi, kayaks, bicycles, snorkel gear $15/week, corn bag toss, grills, washer-dryer, fishing poles, hand lines, a library of books, a library of movies, i-pod player, flashlights (for caves) and much more.

Your tropical tranquil oceanfront vacation home is just feet from the Caribbean waters, and far away from the maddening crowds and the bustle of tourist-saturated areas. While you sunbathe you can enjoy the ocean breeze and be mesmerized by the turquoise Caribbean waters and sapphire surf only feet from your door.

Relax in the sun or shade, next to, or in the solar heated pool on the raised deck in a comfortable chaise lounger or under the beach cabana ten steps from the Caribbean waters.

Cayman Brac is a sister island to the highly developed island of Grand Cayman and has managed to remain unspoiled, making it the perfect antidote to the over-programmed resort vacation. Explore the island’s many hidden treasures while relaxing in your own private retreat. Whether rock-climbing, caving, shelling, diving, fishing, snorkeling, bird watching, hiking, walking the shore line or simply relaxing is what you desire, you will have a vacation to remember. Enjoy the peace and quiet and the laid-back island pace in a thoroughly modern and comfortable house that will immediately become your home.

Listen to the never-ending rhythm of the gentle rolling waves and feel the cooling breezes as you enjoy the warm sunshine and stunning sunsets any time of the year. There is plenty of privacy and you'll enjoy the small yellow songbirds and the island's native brown booby and frigate birds that seem to enjoy the lush, tropical surroundings. The visibility in the water is incredible and the coral reefs endless. The low temperature of the water in mid winter is 78F so you can swim all year long. We call Cayman Brac 'detox from life'. The most difficult part of your vacation will be packing your sandals and leaving this absolute tropical paradise and the fine comfortable accommodations of the house.

This well maintained oceanfront beach property is located on the Caribbean and overlooks Little Cayman. It has access to some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. Rebuilt and remodeled in the fall and winter of 2009, its 3500 square feet offers hardwood floors, all new fixtures, furnishings, and appliances as well as a full kitchen and living room with a large flatscreen television, home theatre system, iPod docks, surround sound systems, and high speed wireless internet. This unit is equipped with all the amenities one would expect from a finer home.

Stretch out twenty feet from the water on a lounger or hammock in the 360 square foot beach cabana with silver palm thatched roof.

Swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers can take advantage of the outside shower, freshwater rise tank, and dive equipment drying rack.

If you have any special requests I can be there to help you within five minutes because I live very close to this rental property.

If you’re vacationing with friends but still want your privacy these units are perfect because you'll be close when you want and still have the privacy when you desire it.

Stores are closed on Sunday. If your arrival is after 6:30 pm on Saturday or on Sunday we'll do your grocery shopping for you - just send us a list, there is no charge for our time.

For your convenience I have also arranged a special deal with a local car rental agency. Those who will be renting a vehicle for a week will get the seventh day free. Additionally, if you pay with traveler’s checks or cash you will receive a 5% discount.

There are public tennis and basketball courts, a full spa, and a full fitness room just minutes away. Inexpensive maid service is also available.

Large thatched roof beach cabana twenty feet from the water with hammocks and loungers. one raised over sized deck, one shaded patio area with picnic table, one open air lounge area just above the beach.

Our pleasant Property Caretaker is now available during your stay to prepare daily meals, clean, pick up groceries and necessities, provide day care, tend your bar, serve your guests or tend to any other service driven requests.

So if mom wants a vacation and does't want to deal with cooking and cleaning or doing a load of laundry then we have a very affordable solution. Secluded Sunsets is the only guest house on the island providing services in this manner. We pride ourselves in being a cut above any other guest house and we strive daily to insure your vacation is the best one you'll ever have. Also, we understand that in todays world everyone is looking for 'value' and we are doing our very best to provide it to all of our guests

About Henry Barbera

I grew up in south New Jersey in the States and always loved being in the sun by water and palm trees. I've always traveled and I vacationed here several years ago. When I retired at age 48 I returned to purchase a property. Now I have two properties one on the south side and I am renting the one on the north side. The water is just incredible and now I'm a certified Scuba Diver and just can't get enough of it. The Coral Reefs are amazing and can be experienced by just snorkeling. I can't ever imagine returning to the States. This place in nothing like Florida with its millions of people and chain retail.

Henry Barbera purchased this house in 2009

Why Henry Barbera chose Cayman Brac

Cayman Brac is a magical place where you can walk about in the middle of a star lit night and have not a single worry of crime or annoyances. Your family is safe here and you can feel it as the locals will wave to everyone including you. Very few people lock their houses and almost everyone will leave their car keys in the ignition 24/7 and that’s a fact. This Island is so special it has become a vacation destination for folks who live on other Caribbean Islands. The stars will make you stop in your tracks as there is very little background lights to dim the skis. You will see shooting stars and satellites orbiting the earth, you can clearly see the band of the Milky Way. This is a Scuba divers paradise with several dive boats operating daily. The visibility in the water is incredible and the coral reefs endless. This is an island of a thousand people but we do have a hospital and a few police officers. An officer's job here on the Island is the only job better than that of the old time Maytag repair man. They have to be bored out of their minds. If you want to vacation with thousands of other vacationers and to eat at the chain restaurants this is not for you. If you want tranquility and peacefulness with eighty degree weather and sunshine almost everyday this is your island. If you come once you'll be back. I am well traveled and retired from the US at age forty eight and I now live here full time on the Island. I could have moved anywhere but I wanted to live in true paradise and remove myself from the busy world out there. We call Cayman Brac detox from life. Many people come once and end up buying property before they leave. Come here and you'll see why.

What makes this house unique

If you see more then two other couples walking on the beach in front of the house in the course of a week that would be way more then normal. The Beach is private to the water line and all yours. Talk about you having the only footprints. The peace of the island will ground you and make you feel whole with the earth. It’s a simple and magical place in this crazy world.

Ipod docs, Flat screens with RGB and HDMI inputs, High Speed Wireless Internet, Hammocks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where do we start? The house, location, amenities and hospitably are amazing. Henry went above and beyond to make the stay better than expected. My wife and I stayed for a week and Henry set us up with diving, rental car, and groceries (as mentioned in the profile). There is incredible shore diving and snorkeling (we even saw a large spotted eagle ray cruising around) right in front of the house. Our neighbors downstairs and my wife and I went together and hired the Cooking Musicians one night. Eric cooked some amazing jerk chicken and then jumped on the drums. Perry grabbed the guitar and kept the small group going for the night (we invited a couple folks we met on the island and the neighbors next door). Henry has thought of everything to provide a wonderful memorable experience; if he hasn’t, let him know and he will do what he can to get what you need.

Chicken island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have made secluded sunsets our home away from home two years in a row now. Henry, Sasha and Perry always make sure it's always a pleasurable visit. We can look forward to clean and comfortable accommodations with a spectacular view, a pool and other amenities while we're enjoying some of the best scuba diving on the globe. Highly recommend!!

Couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

As we prepare to leave the Brac tomorrow, it will be with wonderful memories of both the Brac AND Secluded Sunsets. We could not have asked for a more perfect arrangement! Sasha met us at the airport, along with the rental car she and Henry helped to arrange, and it was perfect from there on out! We had 3 days of diving with Brac Scuba Shack (which we also endorse highly), 3 days of snorkeling, 1 day of caving and bluff exploration and several days of watching amazing sunsets from the seclusion of the west end of the island.

The best review I can give is this -- Everything you read about Secluded Sunsets, Henry & Sasha is absolutely accurate. There are no unfortunate surprises. The property and all its amenities and service options are legitimate, and we accessed every one. The pool, cabana, kayaks, hammocks, grill, smoker, movies, w/d, Sasha's amazing cooking & bartending skills, and special relationships with local providers of other services. The houses are clean & neat, well-equipped with everything from linens and laundry detergent to books, games and movies. There is a reasonable supply of seasonings and staples in the kitchen and enough utensils to prepare full meals and frozen drinks. Secluded Sunsets is as perfect as it seems, and you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The accommodations were great. Henry, Perry and Sasha were very helpful with suggesting places to snorkel and what sites to see. It was one of the most relaxing vacations I've had.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and two infants (9 & 10 months) had a wonderful week at Secluded Sunsets! The house and apartments were so well furnished and so clean we all had everything we needed and many things we didn't have time to use! The pool was wonderful; some part was shaded much of the day with large sails stretched above. The cabana and hammocks were a favorite place for napping. Henry could not have provided more information about what to bring and what to do before we traveled. Sasha met us in the dark at the airport, and went with us to the grocery store while the guys rented the vehicles. Four D was so accommodating; checking in & out was very easy. Sasha and Perry cooked and entertained us at our own private beach party; it was great fun and must be repeated!! This family of divers are already planning what sites they will plan to dive next time. We will certainly want to return to Secluded Sunsets!!

Perfection Can Be Found!

  • 5 of 5

I usually don’t write too many reviews, but when it comes to our stay at Secluded Sunsets on Cayman Brac, everyone should know how amazing this place is and come to visit.

Personally, you never know what to believe sometimes with reviews on the internet. Are they true? Are the photos real, have they been enhanced? Well, with Secluded Sunsets it is all TRUE!!!!

The owner Henry and the property manager Sasha go above and beyond any other place I have ever stayed in my life. They make things easy, plain and simple. One of the best things that we experienced, was when Sasha came over and cooked dinner for us one night at the house. An amazing local dinner with some of the best fish I have ever had! Really hard to beat!

What I loved was being able to wake up, look out my door, and see the beauty of the yard, beach, and water. They have everything you need from scuba to snorkel, so I would just grab some gear and go dive right out in the front of the house. The reef is SOO amazing and alive that my wife would have to pry me out of the ocean every day. The even better thing is that I would jump out of the ocean and right into the beachside pool at the house. How could it be any better than that?

All in all, Secluded Sunsets really is everything that you read about online – perfection. Henry and Sasha are amazing people and if you are looking for an amazing vacation, then your search is over. Secluded Sunsets on Cayman Brac is your answer!!!

A Great Place for Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week at Secluded Sunsets. The house and property exceeded the description and photos posted above. While there's not much to do on Cayman Brac, Henry gives you everything you need to do it. Bikes, snorkel gear, a well-stocked kitchen and a grand location with a gorgeous pool. The place is immaculate and you can tell the owner takes a lot of pride in his home. Rent a car because you'll need it to get to the market, local restaurants and the public sandy beach. Don't miss the bakery at the end of the island next to the police station. The cinnamon rolls are amazing. Also had a nice Carribbean dinner at Star Island. If you're looking for a place to hang out with family or friends, Henry's house can't be beat. We brought four adult children with us and there wasn't a minute of the day we weren't having fun with them.
