About the Property

2 Bed & 2 Bath, W/verenda Stunning Property On The West End Of Cayman Brac, BWI

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.

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 oceanfront beach property overlooks the Caribbean and little cayman and has access to some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world.
Stretch out twenty feet from the water on a lounger or hammock.

Swimmers, snorkelers, and scuba divers can take advantage of the outside shower.

If there are any issues i will be there to help you. I only live five minutes away. If you have any special requests -- be it for snorkeling gear, bicycles, movies -- i can usually help you out.

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 for those who might desire it. For those who will be renting for seven days you will get your seventh day free. Additionally, if you pay with traveler’s checks or cash you will receive a 5% discount.

Bicycles and fishing poles come with the property rental. You can also use the kayaks, snorkeling gear, corn hole toss and more

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

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 three properties one on the south side and I am renting the two 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.

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 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. This property is in a great central location nearby to all the activities, stores, restaurants, and the best public swim area on the island which is just 400 yards away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you see more then two other couples walking on the beach in front of the house in the course of a day 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. Hammocks and loungers provided - byob. For the swimmers / snorkelers / scuba divers I have an outside shower, a fresh water rinse tank. Charter fishing available Caving available Rock Climbing available. Book Library - 400 books
