Warm tropical breezes and spectacular azure ocean views await you on Cayman Brac at the Getaway house. I invite you to come and experience one of the Caribbean's best kept secrets.
The Getaway house has been described as 'the perfect island beach house'. The home is just a few steps (only 120 feet) from the clear, turquoise, Caribbean Sea. This oceanfront home is situated on the south (windward) side of Cayman Brac and enjoys constant trade winds. Double French doors, vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, tile floors, and a screen porch all add to the island experience.
The house is fully furnished and has a washing machine, wi-fi, cd player, and tv with Netflix and other streaming channels. All towels (including beach towels) and linens are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped including stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, blender and coffee maker. 2 bicycles are provided for you, also! Everything you need for the perfect 'getaway'!
The home has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a full size bed. The screen porch has a hammock and lounge chairs perfect for a nap, reading, or just taking in the refreshing ocean views and breeze. A private sandy beach area great for sunbathing is right outside the back door. Also, a large barbecue grill provides a perfect place to grill your catch of the day!
There are 3 tidal pools at the oceans' edge: 1 foot, 2 feet and 4 feet deep, perfect for a quick dip or a long relaxing soak with an adult beverage. A coral reef a short distance out from shore provides excellent snorkeling. Shore fishing and beach bonfires are also great fun ... and free ... and without the hassle of having to leave your 'getaway'!
Whether you're coming to Cayman Brac just to have some time to yourself or maybe a family adventure or perhaps a romantic getaway, the Getaway house has everything you need. The house is conveniently located near the dive shops, restaurants, and a grocery store, yet far enough away from everything to make you feel as though you have the island to yourself.
'A truly great place to relax and unwind.' 'The best vacation I have ever had.' 'The pictures just don't do it justice.' 'One week wasn't enough, we want 2 weeks next year' - quotes from previous guests. I hope to hear from you, too!

About Marcia Tucker
I have welcomed guests to my Cayman Brac Getaway house for 15+ years now, and it is my favorite place in the world. I know that for many, this may be their first trip to Cayman Brac or the Caribbean, and I want more than anything for their visit to be perfect in every way. I work with a local property manager to ensure guests are warmly welcomed to the island, escorted to the house upon arrival, and available to answer any questions or concerns during their stay. I am also almost always available by email or phone before or during guests' stay to answer any questions or ensure concerns are dealt with immediately. Please read my reviews! I would love to welcome you, too!
Marcia Tucker purchased this House in 2001

Perfect location, even better than the pictures
We couldn’t have asked for a better location: right on the ocean with a lovely view, serenaded by crashing waves and cooled by the sea breeze; somewhat secluded and set back from the road; and yet only a 2-minute drive from shops and restaurants. The landscaping provides shade and privacy; a hedge blocked the view of the only near neighbor.
The house is clean and well-equipped with anything you might need. We especially appreciated the library of guidebooks to shore diving sites, birds, reef fish, and more. One of the two air conditioners broke down late one afternoon, and someone showed up within an hour of my calling the manager. He had to order the necessary parts, so the next morning someone came and installed a window unit to tide us over. Without being asked, the owner very kindly offered us a rebate on the rent to make up for the temporary discomfort.
The house is very comfortable, with a spacious screened porch and great room with lots of windows overlooking the ocean, and a large, well-appointed kitchen. The master bedroom has good cross-ventilation, and an air conditioner that we rarely needed. The second bedroom is much smaller and not air-conditioned; renters should understand in advance that one of the bedrooms is significantly more comfortable than the other. The house was perfect for the two of us. We hated to leave and are now trying to figure out how soon we can stay there again.
Relaxing & quaint with postcard view
Very much enjoyed staying at this property. Everything that we needed for our stay and nothing less. It was a nice touch for the owner to have her property manager meet us at the airport as, from past experience, it's no fun trying to navigate unknown roads and areas after a long day of travel. The back patio is awesome and very relaxing, we spent at least half of our time on the patio. Would definitely recommend to others and will book in the future.
This is the perfect spot on Cayman Brac! Every room has a beautiful view and a nice breeze. We enjoyed the tidal pool frequently. It seemed as though you were on a private island, yet it is close to stores and restaurants. It is the perfect place to relax. The cover photo is exactly as it appears, beautiful view and comfortable porch furniture. We would highly recommend!
Charming seaside cottage with Nightingales,Brown Boobies and Loons!
This lovely cottage reminds me so much of our lake cabin in Minnesota I kept expecting to hear loons ! Charming knotty pine walls, comfortable beds and furniture, kitchen perfect for making meals. The screen porch with the sea views and sound of waves was enchanting,plenty of fresh cool air and no need for air. Quiet area perfect for morning walks and biking. Cottage was clean,landscaping lovely with a daily nightingale seen,and brown boobies flying past .
Owner and caretaker quite responsive and wonderful to deal with.
Priced very reasonable and having the owner flexible with check in/out times was a rare find.
Thank you,I look forward to renting again soon.
This has to be one of the best homes that we have stayed in. Perfect location, great views, privacy. The house has a great layout, and is equipped with everything you need or would want.
We would definately stay here again on our next visit.
Thank you for everything!
What a great vacation this was.. We spent the end of 2017 and begining of 2018 at the Getaway house and we truly felt isolated from the rest of the world.. and it was exactly what we wanted! The pictures show exactly what you get, a clean and comfortable house with an amazing 180' view on the sea. The location is great and the house is fully equiped, it's not only a house, it's home.
The view is amazing, you will feel 100% like the sea is yours and only yours. The house has 2 A/Cs but you won't need it, just open the windows to feel the breeze (all windows have screen), open the main bedroom doors (they get to the screened veranda) and go to sleep with that incredible sea waves sound. Hammock in the veranda is such a great idea, regardless if it's for morning coffee, reading a book, napping or enjoying the sea. BBQ is great - don't be scared of the hermit crabs, they are fun to watch when they clean the grills! You will definitely need water shoes as the shore & rocks are sharp.
Just few words about the island itself. My wife and I spent our vacation snorkeling around the island and all sites are great - including straight behind the house (no wonder the dive boats park offshore of the house). Local people are so nice.. always smiling and easy to talk to, they salute you while driving, they are helpful, it's a small community and you can feel it.
Marcia is super quick to reply any questions you might have. very supportive and helpful. This is the perfect getaway to escape from reality! Many thanks again Marcia!
