About Helen LeRoy

When we came to Cayman Brac, we fell in love with the island and its people. As divers, we found the reefs spectacular. We love the laid back lifestyle and eventually built a home in hopes to retire here. This is our home away from home and hope others find it as relaxing and comfortable as we do. By comparison, you'll find renting a house more economical for larger families. A fully equipped kitchen will save on meals as well. Please view our website to see many more pictures.

Helen LeRoy purchased this house in 1999

Why Helen LeRoy chose Stake Bay

Cayman Brac is unique in its landscape and tranquility. This is a place where we can relax and enjoy nature and the friendly people. The water is clear and warm and the reefs are healthy in their diversity of corals and fish. The island is a true nature-lover's delight, topside with nature hikes, caves, rock climbing, bird watching and oceanside with fishing, and watersports. If you are into nature-tourism, Cayman Brac is a great option!

What makes this house unique

We face west by northwest so gorgeous sunsets on the water are in view. The house is 120feet from the water. Very secluded-Only a neighbor's rooftop about 400 feet away is barely seen. Our private road is at least 1000 feet from the main road, limiting traffic noise. We are far enough away from the airport not to hear any airline noise as well. The view of the Caribbean Sea is mesmerizing and you can walk out 100feet from shore and be only chest high. There are 2 shallow and 1 deep divesite right out our back door that a 10 minute swim (to the shallow ones) brings you to beautiful coralheads and plentiful fish. A large grocery store is located in downtown Stake Bay less than 2 miles away and the island hospital is even closer a 1/2 mile away. Centrally located, the house is within a 5-20 minute drive to everything on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time last week on Cayman Brac with no problems whatsoever. It is a very interesting, safe and friendly place to relax. We have stayed at several vacation rentals over the years in many locations and must say that your house was one of the best. Thanks for making everything so easy. Great snorkeling too!!

Hidden Gem on a Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My first & last visit to the Brac was in 2003 and we tied the knot! We returned with a family this time, 2 boys ages 8 & 10. We were so fortunate to find this house and spend 10 wonderful nights there. The caretaker Van greeted us upon arrival and helped us make our way to the home. Van was such a great help – more on this later! Upon entering the home, we were so impressed by it’s spaciousness and comfortable feel. We enjoyed everything the home had to offer including many kayak trips, nightly grilling, well stocked kitchen, and relaxation in the hammock.

We took full advantage of the numerous activities the island has to offer. We explored every major cave, visited the parrot sanctuary, hiked the bluff and lighthouse, and snorkeled, snorkeled, snorkeled!! We had one unplanned adventure which we stumbled upon while driving down the road. We passed a group of people holding an iguana and it looked like a study was taking place. That’s exactly what it was! We stopped and chatted with the scientists and they invited us to stay and observe. We watched as they examined the iguana, drew blood samples, weighed, and collected data. The finale was when they asked the boys if they wanted to hike to her nest and see her released. Such a great learning experience!

We dined at the Captain's Table for lunch and dinner. The kids really loved this place. On Friday we had Barry's Golden Jerk, which is a must have when visiting. We also chartered a fishing excursion with Captain Jeff, but we were only lucky enough to land a couple fish for dinner due to rough seas. The island is just as lovely as we remembered it. The residents are so inviting, helpful, and interesting to chat with.

Back to Van…Before I left for the Island I informed Van that I wanted to renew our vows. Under the cloak of secrecy, Van coordinated our wonderful officiator, Pastor Scott. In addition, he coordinated with Mr. Tibbetts to be our photographer(Same from 2003)! With a made up story about an anniversary photo, we made our way to the top of the bluff where Mr. Tibbetts and Pastor Scott were waiting. It was so amazing to have our kids there and renew our vows on our 14th anniversary. My wife and kids were completely shocked by the surprise. Van really brought this all together and we greatly appreciated everything he did to make it so special.

We’ll be back to the Brac for sure, but this time we’re not waiting 14 years!

Love the seclusion!

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful secluded location. This was our second time visiting but even after several years, the house and location were breathtaking. It has a relaxed atmosphere that makes you not want to leave. The owners were very helpful and kind. Looking forward to future visits.

Idyllic spot for our family!

  • 5 of 5

From airport greeting through to the final "farewell", our experience at Island Time was simply awesome!

Our family of divers loved the property, the tranquility and the amenities. Being on Brac over Christmas was restful and great... even though the wind did not cooperate! There were cute little touches everywhere and we simply couldn't leave without adding our "mark" to the visitor pole. Thanks for leaving the craft supplies to do so!

My only advice would be to bring some good knives... almost lost a limb trying to cut some chicken! Thanks for an awesome property experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and we are glad you had a great time. Shortly after your stay we had the knives sharpened and now warn our future guests to be careful with their fingers! Take care and we hope to have you stay with us again.

amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect. The house is right near the water which allowed us to snorkel at the property. It was wonderful to have it so close. The sunsets were beautiful off the porch. The house was perfect. It was clean with comfy beds and pillows. We were very close to stores, restaurants, and other snorkeling spots. Our mornings were filled with snorkeling while our afternoons were filled with caving. We do recommend if you want to have an excursion to Little Cayman get it booked early because there are not many charter boats available.

Island Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Island Time. The house was exactly as described. The bedrooms were extremely spacious and the property very private. Unfortunately, we had strong north and northwest winds the whole time we were there so we never were able to get in the water in front of the house. In addition to four days of diving, we did several hikes and explored most of the caves on the island. We loved the restaurant at Brac Beach Resort and especially loved Barry's Golden Jerk for dinner. The Heritage House was also a nice place to stop and learn more about the history of the island. We all definitely hope to be "Brac" someday!
