Gelegen aan de kant van de meer wenselijke Noorden 'sunset' die over het algemeen geniet consistantly kalmer water, het huis is ver genoeg uit West End luchthaven naar rust en rustige dag door te verzekeren.

Van volstrekt particuliere oceaan, het huis is omgeven door 3. 5 hectaren oude groei zee druif, kokos, mahonie, rieten palm & amandelboom bos. Het huis is hoog bieden spectaculaire uitzichten. Deze accommodatie is werkelijk uniek; je zal een andere strand woning niet vinden met zoveel echte privacy, deze klasse van vrij uitzicht, adembenemende zonsondergangen, zachte zandstrand, het gemak van toegang tot water en volkomen superieure ondiepte rif snorkelen in vier voeten van het water recht uit de kust. Het grote strand kant hangmat hut tops alles uit. Absoluut Brac's best!
In een vaak stressvol en enge wereld Cayman Brac is een eiland met oprechte vriendelijkheid, verstoken van de criminaliteit, waar de mensen niet op slot hun deuren of zelfs de sleutels van hun auto's. Van de witte zandstranden van de West End aan de ruige kliffen van de East End, de helderblauwe Caribische Zee omringt u in alle richtingen en er is een verbazingwekkende reeks van activiteiten om uw dagen te vullen, of gewoon relaxen in een hangmat op uw eigen privéstrand.
Met wat zijn misschien wel de meest vooruitstrevende beleid bescherming van het milieu in de Caraïben en vrijwel geen grond of chemische vandoor uit agrarische activiteiten, Cayman Brac heeft een aantal van de meest ongerepte en dramatische snorkelen en duiken in de wereld in het kristalheldere water van gemiddeld 100 ft zichtbaarheid . Dramatische kliffen, uniek voor Cayman Brac alleen, bieden eindeloze mogelijkheden om te wandelen, speleologie en klimmen. Voor de natuurliefhebber is er een unieke flora en fauna, waaronder een verbazingwekkend aantal inheemse en trekvogels gemakkelijk waarneembaar op de eilanden verschillende natuurgebieden. En je slechts een korte boottocht of tien minuten vliegen van meer avontuur op Brac zus eiland Little Cayman.
Ondanks bracs kleine omvang en zeer kleine populatie, bijna elke service die u zou willen of nodig is beschikbaar. Er zijn goed gevulde supermarkten, een goede selectie van restaurants en bars met lokale entertainment, duiken operaties, vissen charters en uitstekende medische voorzieningen (waaronder een decompressiekamer op het eiland).
For context, we are a boomer-age, scuba diving couple who have traveled to St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Vieques, Barbardos, numerous Bahamian islands, Fiji, Tahiti, as well as various locales in western Europe. One of us has been coming to the Brac for 20+ years, the other for 8. We seek accommodations with character that are also comfortable to live in and appealing to our sense of aesthetic. This visit to Cayman Brac was 15 months after Hurricane Paloma, and we found the house and the island to be in astonishingly good shape -- a testament to the resiliency, resolve and character of Brackers.
This house is a gem. You enjoy enormous privacy, yet are within three minutes of two markets and less than 10 minutes from dive operators. The sea view is magnificent from the house and deck, and the covered, seaside hammock hut is perfect for shady reading and dozing. The house itself is beautifully furnished with "real" furniture rather than indestructible patio furniture, including area rugs and artwork, so you feel like you're in a home instead of a sterile rental.
Being a house on the north side, the upper-level open deck is largely shaded by the house. This is valuable for temperature and sun protection. Sliding doors in the living room and master bedroom open to the deck, which is furnished with lounges, a table and chairs.
The king bed in the master is comfortable, the upstairs bath has an adult-height sink and counter top, plus drawers and cupboards where you can easily store your stuff instead of balancing it on the toilet tank top or worse, the floor. The tub-shower has good water pressure. The "L-shaped" layout of the kitchen, dining area and living room provides cross ventilation (also a/c), lots of light, and a sense of togetherness mixed with some visual privacy. We did a lot of cooking, and all appliances were modern and fully functional. There's wired internet access in the living room in case, like one of us, life without The New York Times is not worth living (you provide the computer).
The house "comes with" a local manager, who is top notch. He'll store some basic groceries for you in advance (when you request), meet you at the airport and take you to the house, show you the ropes, and is available to quickly respond to any request for assistance or information.
The "Brac" was an incredible experience! We enjoyed every moment! The house was excellent and the people were very pleasant and extremely helpful. We are long-time visitors to Grand Cayman, but we always wanted to visit "Brac". It was everything we had hoped for and more. Laid back, pristine reef with wonderfully helpful property manager. In short, highly recommended!
That’s what Cayman Brac is. It is truly a place to get away from noise and stress. It is not for everybody. Diving, snorkeling, hiking, watching the beautiful sunsets and feeling the tropical breezes is mostly all there is. The essentials of civilization are there: grocery stores, restaurants, internet but the value of the experience, at least for my wife and me, was the comfortable safe isolation found on the Brac.
We stayed at Kimber Tracy’s house on Rock Road. The house is quite nice and surrounded by tropical vegetation. There are no other houses to be seen from the property. The beach is wide and sandy. You must wear diving boots or some other form of foot protection because there is some coral or iron shore as you enter the water, and there are sea urchins. Once you are in the water and past the rocks, the snorkeling is very good. The beach is much better than most on Cayman Brac.
The kitchen in the house is well equipped. We did some cooking. We also got take out from Barry’s Golden Jerk (excellent). We sat out on the large deck and watched the sunset most nights. At night, the stars were amazing.
The caretaker, Derwin Scott, met us at the airport. We followed him to the house. He gave us very complete instructions on the features of the house, gave us his phone number, and left. He was the last person we saw on the property the rest of the time we were there. There were some wild chickens that were quite amusing to watch.
That’s about it. I can’t wait to go back to the Brac and stay in Kimber’s house again.
We were wanting a secluded place on the beach and we got what we wanted! It was absolutely wonderful for us! We had our privacy, the beach, the ocean, wonderful house, and the island offers great snorkeling experiences. We went snorkeling right off of our own beach and explored the small reef there. Cayman Brac is a great place to get away from the rat race of life. Life there is quite relaxed and the people are friendly. This house provided the perfect place for us on our honeymoon. The owner is a very fine communicator and her land manager did a great job getting everthing ready for us. It was a wonderful experience for us.
Finishing up three wonderful weeks on Cayman Brac, and it's hard to imagine how this house could be better. Secluded, yet minutes from everything. Altho Cayman Brac is primarily a divers' destination, I picked it for its rural nature, and, honestly, because of this great house. My husband went with the Scuba Shack for 14 dives; he couldn't have been happier with the crew, the smaller groups, and the dive sites. While we entered the sea at many places (most shoreline is iron-shore), we finally happily admitted that the most fascinating snorkeling was smack-dab in front of this house. Just wear reef shoes to walk in to a sandy spot (sorry little sea urchins) and then get into your fins. Lots of healthy coral, sponges, reef fish. Yesterday we saw a "squadron" of squid! This morning we awoke to find a Night Heron on the deck.
The hands-down highlight was a boat snorkeling trip to Little Cayman with this property's manager, Derwin Scott. DO NOT MISS this! Derwin is a gem, and a wealth of local knowledge and experience.
We liked being on the north side of the island, which is more densely populated with year-round "Brackers", and generally has calmer seas. The south side, still beautiful, is primarily condominiums and private homes. A terrific place on the south side is the Public Beach which, each time we visited, was virtually deserted. Actual powdery sand there, and easy access for swimming and snorkeling.
We enjoyed the Brac Museum, particularly the way the curator, Ms. Lisa Mcfarlane, greeted us and answered all our questions about the history of the "Brac", especially the hurricane of 1932, which pretty much wiped out this island. We found everything we needed at the 3 large grocery stores, Marketplace, Billy's, and Kirkconnells. Virtually everything arrives here by barge, and is expensive, particularly if it's the least bit exotic.
Favorite local restaurants were the Star (escovitch fish!), Coral Isle (goat curry!), and the place next to the police station (oxtail!).
If you're looking for Caymanite, I highly recommend a visit to Mrs. Coleen Gibson's, 3 houses past the hospital, and, like many little stores here, inside her home. Also enjoyed Carla's tiny gift shop next to Scuba Shack. Neither take VISA, which to me says "Local"! Everyone is set up to take US dollars.
Sleepy Cayman Brac is poised for development, so come quick! Friendly, crime-free…a world away from Grand Cayman and just about anywhere else. After 1 week, the locals were greeting me!
We stayed here over Christmas with our adult children. We are all divers and wanted a relaxing low-key getaway. My husband just retired and our children are in med school and undergrad.
We are low maintenance but expect a clean well maintained property. We got that in SPADES! We are very independent and like complete privacy. This property supplied that in a tranquil setting but with easy access to grocery stores and the dive operation where we rented our tanks.
There is a beautiful white sand beach with a wonderful palapa (including hammocks and lounge chairs). Be aware that between the beach and open water is ironshore with urchins. We wore scuba boots, so that was no problem.
There is a sweet house reef that is perfect for snorkeling and where we did our initial checkout dive. After that, we did all shore diving along the north shore. Perfect!
One of the bedrooms is on the lower level and was slightly musty when we arrived. That problem was solved within minutes by simply opening the windows. It was a perfect arrangement for our adult son. It has its own powder room and airconditioner. He loved having a separate area.
On the main level were two bedrooms. The master opens onto the deck with a beautiful view of the water. The other bedroom has two twins with large windows on two sides so it is very open and bright. Every bedroom has its own air unit, as does the living area. We only used the airconditioning one night. The rest of the time, the breeze kept it very cool.
The kitchen is well supplied and there were plenty sheets, blankets, towels, etc.
Derwin manages the property and is a truly kind and caring man. He met us at the airport, led us to the house and gave us an orientation. After that, he simply let us know that if we had ANY problems to call him.
In sum, this property was the perfect choice for us.
Our thanks to Kimber and Derwin as well as to all of the other folks on Cayman Brac for allowing us to have a relaxing week to reconnect as a family while getting in some great dives, hikes and cave exploration.
Gelegen op de meer handige & wenselijke noordkant in een vredige, rustige niet-commercieel gebied mid-eiland, dit huis is ver genoeg van het Westen einde aan het geluid van vliegtuigen landing en neemt dagelijks af, te voorkomen en niet zo ver van de East End of externe zuidkant die een run naar de winkel om een vergeten item is een ongemak. Je bent zo dicht als een fietstocht naar een supermarkt in beide richtingen, en het krijgen van restaurants, bars, hotels en duikscholen zijn slechts enkele minuten met de auto. Alleen de noordzijde heeft zonsondergangen !!
