About the property

- Minimum Stay7 - 8 nights
2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)
Custom house with all the conveniences of home and located on a secluded southside beach property with pool. Granite counter tops throughout; all wood cabinets; beautiful wood and cedar beam vaulted ceilings throughout; king size bed in each bedroom with luxury linens; comfortable furniture that feels like home; dining table inside and outside. Kitchen is stocked with nice dishes, glasses, pots, pans, knives......everything you could need.
This home has a cozy, spa-like feel that calls you to relax and embrace 'island time'. We designed and built this home as our vacation/retirement home and spent a lot of time selecting materials and furnishings that are unique to the island and provide a sense of luxury, comfort and calmness. There are ceiling fans in every room and central A/C.
The covered patio provides an outdoor extension of the main living area of the house. With the pool, outdoor dining table, comfortable chairs and complete privacy you may want to live outside. That's when the outdoor shower will come in handy.
Walk right off the patio to the water's edge. Two official reef dive sites and excellent snorkeling are accessible from the shore on a calm day. A secluded white sandy beech area lays adjacent to the iron shore that meets the water and the sound of the waves.
There are outdoor sinks to clean up all your dive equipment too and a custom made drying rack. With an acre of private, natural landscape and the breath taking views of the ocean you will not want to leave.
Despite its small size and very small population, nearly every service you could need or want is available. There are well stocked grocery stores, a good selection of restaurants & bars featuring local entertainment, local bakery, dive operations, spa, boutique shops, fishing charters and excellent medical facilities (including a decompression chamber on island).

About Pam Andrews
We live in Colorado and love the mountain views from our home. We figured the only better place on earth would be a pristine island with 180 degree views of the ocean. Now we have both! We have a small Environmental Consulting business that keeps us busy and helps support our Green desires and ambitions. As such our Brac house was built with Green goals in mind.
Pam Andrews purchased this House in 2010
Why Pam Andrews chose Sister Islands
We found Brac on a dive trip in 2004 and fell in love with the island and the people. Diving is spectacular and we haven't found anything to beat it. We love hiking the bluff, biking around the island, taking the kayaks out and mostly relaxing on the covered patio.
What makes this House unique
We love the privacy and calmness of our house and property. Tranquility is what we feel when we are there.

Luxurious Tropical Tranquility
"Tranquility" truly is the perfect name for this peaceful oasis. The luxurious accommodations and exotic beachfront location give you the 5-star feeling of being totally pampered in a tropical paradise. Concurrently, the warm cozy decor immediately shifts you into a quiet, relaxed, tranquil state. Although there is plenty to "do" on the island, I was completely content just "being" at the beachfront retreat. I looked forward to watching the sunrise with my coffee each morning, reading on the patio intermittently dipping into pool in the afternoon, walk on the beach again for sunset and a glass of wine, and I could barely wait to get back out to the patio for incredible meditative star-gazing before bedtime. There is so little light pollution, it feels like your own private observatory. I simply cannot wait to go back!
Peace and Tranquility
Its all in the name of this wonderful villa. The house is so well equipped that you certainly do not want for nothing, from the fully stocked kitchen, nice furnishings, outside furniture, BBQ (grill for you American folks), very comfortable bed and great shower. Outside is perfect with the covered porch area, for when the sun gets too hot. A great spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The villa is in a very quiet and private location so you can totally get away from everything.
I am really missing the gentle sounds of the ocean.........
A beautiful, private, comfortable villa.
Our first impressions of the villa and pool were excellent and that proved to be the case. The owner, Pam, had been extremely helpful, answering many questions I had,about the facilities and the island, so I felt comfortable from the start. The size and layout of the villa was perfect and the pool was gorgeous to have a dip and a cool off. The sea was very stormy and impossible to enter in front of the villa, so the pool was essential. A car is also essential and the hire co., recommended by Pam was very good. Altogether, an excellent stay.
Perfect Place for Two Couples
Tranquility is a well designed vacation home to share with 2 couples. We went to Cayman Brac for a dive trip and stayed there 2 - 9 December. We chose Tranquility because it has two equal sized "master" bedrooms and the photos feature a beautiful lanai/pool area with sweeping Caribbean views. It does not disappoint. The house has comfortable furniture around the TV and a great kitchen with every accessory you could imagine to cook anything you wanted. Even the knives were sharp! Upon arrival we were met at the airport by Jeffrey and we followed him to the house after stopping to stock up on groceries and libations. After Jeffrey left we noticed there was no toilet paper in one bathroom and a few turns on the roll in the other bathroom. We called Jeffrey to ask if the TP was hidden anywhere and he said no and told us the closest place to buy some. It was disappointing after a long travel day and while getting settled in for our first night, we have to run out and buy toilet paper.
As for the rest of the house:
5 stars for sleep comfort, comfortable beds/pillows & the sheets were luxurious
5 stars for shower water pressure, plenty of hot water
5 stars for plumbing, toilets flushed, no sink backups
4 stars on switch labeling for lights/electrical outlets
5 stars for home amenities such as bikes, kayaks, and coolers
4 stars for beach chairs, only 3 and the same is true of pool loungers, not enough for 4 to lounge simultaneously.
A couple of other notes. The shore is iron rock and you really can't swim or kayak from Tranquility. As noted earlier we came in early December to dive and could only dive for 2 days. The winds were blowing 25+mph north/northeast. Since Cayman Brac is a slender cigar shaped island when the winds are blowing from that direction, there is no lee. Talking to locals and the Brac Shack dive company, which is the best dive operation we have experienced, December is a windy month and the worst month to come to dive. The only thing rougher than the water were the hiking trails. You hike on iron rock and it's not easy. Despite the rough conditions we enjoyed Cayman Brac and really enjoyed staying at Tranquility.
A beautiful spot in Paradise
This is a comfortable and well equipped villa located in a in a quiet, secluded part of the south shore. Picturesque setting with panoramic views of the ocean. Private beach area with its own cabana. Swimming and snorkelling off the iron shore beach. Pool deck, garden and beach are not overlooked by other properties. Pam could not have been more helpful and acommodating? We would definitely book to stay here again.
Beautiful property with everything needed for a great getaway vacation.
Perfect 2 bedroom with pool, outdoor showers and great ocean front view. About 12 minute drive to dive resorts. Would return without hesitation.
South Side, Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands, Caribbean (Brac is 12 miles long / 1 miles wide so everything is close) -- Oceanfront: Walk right off the patio to the water's edge. Some sand before you reach the iron shore that meets the water. On a calm day you can enter the water just a few yards down the beach with excellent snorkeling and diving just 25 feet from shore. Fall to sleep with the relaxing sound of the waves. Other Activities: boating, rock climbing, kayaking, health/beauty spa
