Private Oceanfront Home W/Large Lanai, Pool and Cabana

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 - 8 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

New custom house with all the conveniences of home and located on a secluded southside beach property. Enjoy the recently installed pool and cabana. Everything is new.....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 palm leaf 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 Cayman Brac

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.

Perfect Place for Two Couples

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE TRANQUILITY!!!! Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

There is not enough space to list all the great things about our stay at Tranquility. It is truly a home away from home. I am not kidding when I say EVERYTHING you could possibly imagine was already there: sunscreen, sample toiletry items, muffin pans, knife sharpener, wine bottle opener, coozies, step ladder, beach towels, extra linens, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent/dryer sheets, pool floats, Gorilla Glue (which I used for my sunglasses!), pens and pads of paper, Q-tips, aloe, spices and condiments, tape measure, ziplock bags, wax paper, tin foil, water bottles, paper towels, travels mugs, extra light bulbs....literally everything you would never think of to bring on vacation and then kick yourself when you need it and don't have it. The Wifi was super fast and there is cable but we only turned the television on to watch the Stanley Cup finals and a movie one night (great DVD collection). There is also a pretty good book collection. We spent most of our time lounging under the lanai, and floating in the pool. Kelly from The Beach Spa came and we all have massages on the lanai....truly a relaxing experience!

Booking with Pam was SUPER easy and hassle free. She responded to messages very quickly and included TONS of details. The house was very easy to find and gain access to thanks to the step by step directions from Pam. With so much detail, we did not need to contact Jeffery (property manager) for anything other than to find out what time the gas stations closed and to let him know when we were checking out. A pool guy came twice during our stay to skim the pool and make sure everything was working correctly...very nice man.

The Brac: I hate to say how much we loved it here because I want to keep it our little secret BUT it was amazing and relaxing. Tranquility is in the PERFECT location with the only sounds being that of the ocean waves. If you like to be around a bunch of restaurants, people, loud music, or need to be entertained, then this is not the place for you. We absolutely loved the peace and quiet, being the only divers in the water, being the only people on the beach (rocky beach, which was great because I don't like sand in everything), only having a car or two pass while out for a run. We love diving but there are so many above water things to explore on the island...we ran out of time! Guess that means we'll have to come back!!! I wouldn't stay at any other place than Tranquility.

Tranquility .... that says it all

  • 5 of 5

This was our, second year returning to Tranquility. I love this place. The pool and covered outside patio is the focus of our activity, from listening to books, music, reading books, or just floating and listening to the waves crash on the rocks.

The villa has always been clean, Jeffrey stopped by several times during our stay to make sure everything was ok. The bikes are the other huge plus for me. An early morning ride is great way to start the day.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Tranquility and hated to leave. The house is exactly as the pictures depict. All day and night the only sounds we heard were birds and the waves crashing into the shoreline. It's so peaceful and relaxing. The outside showers are perfect for washing off after a morning dive or hike on one of the island's trails. Follow that with lunch on the covered back porch, a refreshing dip in the pool and a nap on the porch. It just doesn't get any better. The kitchen is well stocked. You can cook your meal while looking out to the beautiful back yard and coastline so you don't really feel like you're inside. We ate all of our meals outside at the table and chairs. The inside furniture and beds are comfortable. The house truly has a home feeling. Everything is clean and well kept. There is wifi and satellite TV. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. The owner responds in timely manner and is wonderful to work with.
