  • Scenic Island Beauty Location and Beautiful Reef Life

    "Our family enjoyed an excellent island living vacation from Jul 10-17 2016 at Barcadere West End Cayman Brac. The home and location met all of our needs. It was very quiet and peaceful. The weather was perfect with sunshine and beautiful blue/green Caribbean sea every day. At this very special West End north shore location of Barcadere on the reef we enjoyed beautiful sunsets every evening. The art work and island decor inspired our inner spirits to the simplicity of island life. Time stood still. The telescope provided us with close up views of scenery and diving excursions. Our family felt very welcome by the friendly people of Cayman Brac. Mr. Derwin Scott welcomed us at the Cayman Brac airport and introduced us to Barcadere. He was very helpful. Reef Divers Scuba provided valuable info and daily scuba tanks and weights for our use. They also recommended specific shore dive sites on the island. We all agreed that the very best site and reef for beautiful sea life and variety of coral was the Barcadere cove itself which we enjoyed immensely. We snorkeled the reef from your beautiful access cove daily. The outside shower and beach towels which you provided were very much appreciated. Tut Tut the black and white island cat began each morning as our guest and enjoyed a kitty breakfast with us. Market Place at Cross Roads was very convenient for all our grocery needs. We enjoyed dinners at Captains Table and breakfast at Star Island Restaurant. Together our family enjoyed a very unforgettable and unique vacation at Barcadere in your island home at Cayman Brac. We very highly recommend Barcadere and we plan to return."

  • Rum Point Retreat #31

    "My husband, 15 year old son, mother and I stayed here for a week at the end of May. There is no more perfect location, in our opinion, on the island. The condo was very clean and well stocked. The owner was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to any questions both before and during the trip. Condo is on the ground floor, only steps to the beach. It is next door the Rum Point, very convienient for lunch, dinner, drinks, and to book excursions. Even though it is next to Rum Point it is well isolated by a row of hedges. There's a grass yard as you walk out the back door of the screened in porch. My son enjoyed going out early in the morning to take pictures of the land and hermit crabs. The beach is very nice with lots of lounge chairs available. Most importantly to us is the ocean. The water is beautiful, both above and below it. We've snorkeled quite a few places and this is definitely a favorite. We walked west to a public beach, got in and snorkeled back to the condo. We saw lots of things during these snorkels. We saw a spotted eagle ray, a nurse shark, and cuttlefish, just to name a few. We all agree this was one of our favorite trips and we can't wait to go back to #31!"

    "OMG! First time in Grand Cayman. This was such a beautiful island and the condo at Sunset Cove was THE highlight. So centrally located and close to the action. What more could you ask for - the whole house was immaculate with a fully equipped big kitchen, dining and lounging space - many USA programs were on TV including the 2016 presidential election! The condo is first floor, perfect for a family, with pool, spa, wading pool, waterfall just out the back slider and patio. Lighted palm trees at night make a very tropical setting. For two couples, the beds and baths are separated and very private. With the ocean just beyond the pool, bring a cocktail, cheese & crackers, set on a lounge chair, scrunch your toes into the beach sand and enjoy the most beautiful sunsets each night. There is a private lagoon to swim and a marked reef is just beyond for snorkeling in crystal waters. Many restaurants are within walking distance and the airport and city of Georgetown is very close for shopping and sightseeing. There is NO crime on Grand Cayman and the people are friendly and welcoming. A week was almost not enough time, leaving more to explore for next time. Don't miss Stingray City, snorkeling at the Cayman Turtle Farm, stop in to watch or swim with the dolphins, rent a car and go east and north to the part of the island that is less developed. Visit Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Garden, Starfish Point, Kaibo Beach Bar, Rum Point and the blow holes. Bring home a (USA - up to 3) beautiful conch shell for $5 Cayman/ $8 US at a local road stand. Don't forget to drive on the left side. This is Paradise. We will certainly be back to rent from Pat and Mike who take great pride in their home here and make it so easy to transact a stay. Thank You so much! We had a blast!"
