“Blue Skies, Emerald waters, light breezes and calm seas; a real paradise!”

The island appeared quaint from the sky as we approached by plane. Our transition to our 2 bedroom 2 bath was a short drive through the scenic tropical setting that is the heart of Cayman Brac. We discovered the water was right outside our door and had our feet in the water before we even unloaded our gear. We expected to slow down and disconnect from the frantic pace of life back home, but we had no idea how medicinal this would be for us.

Each new day was spent enjoying a blend of sunrises and sunsets, swimming and snorkeling, wandering about the island and meeting the locals who were friendly and delightful. We found every restaurant had delicacies to consume and the local markets featured plenty of fresh seafood for cooking.

We took off our watches, turned off our IPhones, put tropical clothes on always ready to get wet and spent quite a bit of time holding hands and lazily wondering knee deep along the coast recalling days long gone and speculating on the days ahead. I would recommend to every couple who never seem to have time for one another to make your plans to slip away from all the racing around holidays that are the normal escapes that we often need a vacation after those kind of vacation, and to head here. This isn't just a destination it is a way to turn back the calendar to a time when life was simple and uncomplicated. Stop seeking vacations were there is too much to do every moment of every day and choose this getaway where the focus of each day is the people you came to enjoy in a tropical setting.

We are already planning our next vacation to this same exquisite condo on the northern coast of this Caribbean Island that has been protected from all the problems and issues the rest of the world is dealing with. Decide to reward yourself with something you have never done before! Escape from your patterns of play and have a vacation that is actually restful and rewarding!

“The Ocean Wave apartment is large. comfortable, and secluded with the Carribean sea as your front yard.”

We loved our stay at The Ocean Wave. The apartment had two bedrooms and baths, and a fully-equipped kitchen. Everything was new and clean. The house is on the north shore (calmer waters for snorkeling), off a small road that has no traffic.The beach is a coral beach that was empty except for us. There is wonderful snorkeling in the waters along the beach, with an old pier creating a habit for many colorful fish.

Carol Sue is the owner. She is a life-long resident of the island, knowledgeable, and kind as the day is long. Although we rented a car Carol Sue still met us at the airport to ensure we would not get lost on our way to The Ocean Wave. A retired nurse, she even took time to get one of us a quick appointment with a doctor when ill with the flu.

Brac is a wonderful island. With no cruise ships burdening its shores it is quiet and beautiful. It has intriguing topography, with many caves (we visited three - Great Cave was the best) and stunning cliffs. We sought to "get away from it all" and did so on Brac.
