Property description

Stunning beach front property, meticulously landscaped with open air raised pergola, pool & sunbathing deck, screened in patio (sea side), open air patio (sea side), landscape lighting, coral rock walls, rich with deep tropical vegetation throughout the property. The sea water is fifteen feet and eight steps away from the appropriately decorated screened-in attached over sized patio area. The interior decorating is absolutely breath taking and the beds, couches and chairs are comfortable. This is an extreme high end house. This has been my house for the last eight years and i'm going to be traveling in 2014 / 2015 so i've decided to rent.
This is the only rental house on the island in the section where the resorts, hotels and condos are located and where you have the complete property to yourself.
Your view will be from a raised beach area to the reef protected sea on the South Side / West End of Cayman Brac. There are several fishing and dive boats moored in front of the house adding to the beautiful water scene for you to enjoy everyday.
This house was built by a doctor in 1997 and the couple made it there residence for ten years. I purchased the house in 2007 and in 2009 moved in and made it my residence for the last six years. This house offers EVERYTHING you could want. Beautiful furniture, fixtures and decorations throughout. Complete with stainless steel appliances, large flat screen TV's with RGB and HDMI connections for your laptops - connect to a 1000 watt home theatre system, Ipod dock, High Speed Wireless internet. A computer printer with paper and extra cartridges, central a/c, dishwater, blender, coffee maker with timer, microwave, washer, dryer, Complete with linens, bath and beach towels. Everything is here!
The property offers three bedrooms in the main house. The property caretaker resides in a studio apartment in the detached garage. She can be hired to do cooking, cleaning, laundry and she makes an awesome pina-colada. See additional information below. Tile floors and high end fixtures throughout. Fully equipped with all of the amenities one would expect from a finer home.
The master bedroom (king size bed) has it own change and bath area and it opens on the opposite side to the sea through two Anderson full glass patio doors. The doors open to a covered open air patio. When the wind blows you can open the doors and be put to sleep by listening to the gentle waves hit the shore as the tropical breeze flows through the room.

There’s plenty of shade and tropical breeze as you relax in the seats or recline in the chase loungers under the large raised open air pergola which is fifteen feet from the water. The pergola is surrounded by mature coconut trees and other lush vegetation, the front is kept open so as not to distract from the view of the ocean. You could also take a little nap in one of the hammocks, perhaps the one ten feet from the water tied between two coconut trees.

The vrbo map is a little off. This property is located where the letter 'J' is displayed. I've tried to fix this but the people at vrbo tell me there is nothing that can be done.

Cayman Brac, British West Indies, is a sister island to the highly developed island of Grand Cayman. The ‘Brac’ has managed to remain unspoiled. This is the perfect antidote to the over-programmed resort vacation. Explore the island with its many hidden treasures while relaxing in your private retreat. Be it rock climbing, caving, shelling, diving, fishing, snorkeling, bird watching, hiking, walking the shore line, or just plain relaxing you will have a vacation to remember. Enjoy the peaceful quiet and easy island pace in a totally modern and comfortable house that will immediately become your home.

You can relax away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas and maddening crowds. Your tropical tranquil ocean front vacation home is just feet from the Caribbean waters. You can enjoy the ocean breeze while soaking in the sun and being mesmerized by the breath taking Caribbean turquoise waters and sapphire surf just feet from your door. 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. 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.
Stores are closed on Sunday so for those who will be arriving after 6:30 PM on Saturday or on Sunday we will do your shopping and there is no charge for our time.
Also for your benefit I have arranged for those who desire to rent a car - a special deal with a car rental agency. For those who will be renting for seven day you will get the seventh day free.

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 and serve your guests, and many other service driven requests. Leave the cooking and cleaning to us!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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 is nothing like Florida with its millions of people and chain retail.

Why the Owner Chose West End, Cayman Islands:
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 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. Many people come once and end up buying property before they leave. Come here and you'll see why.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
THIS IS THE ONLY VILLA ON THE ISLAND IN THE REEF PROTECTED AREA. THIS AREA WAS SOUGHT AFTER BY THE HOTELS, RESORTS, DIVE CENTERS, AND MOST RESTAURANTS BECAUSE IT IS REEF PROTECTED WHICH MAKES IT THE VERY BEST LOCATION ON THE ISLAND. YOU WILL NOT FIND THOSE TYPES OF ESTABLISHMENTS ANYWHERE ELSE ON THE ISLAND. private boat and captain available. THE ONLY GUEST HOUSE VILLA OFFERING SUCH AN ARRANGEMENT. caretaker available, THE ONLY VILLA OFFERING SUCH AN ARRANGEMENT. BLACKBEARDS' LANDING IS THE VERY BEST OF THE VERY BEST.
