The Copper Turtle is low-key, elegant – have a good time, feel comfortable. Open floor plan (2700 sq ft!), lots of space both inside and out. The first thing that everyone notices as they walk in the front door is the really large open space, with an amazing side to side full view of the ocean, blue skies, clouds and dive boats bobbing. At the Copper Turtle we have 160 feet of lovely beachfront on the quiet North side of the Brac; our sweetest feature is the full screened-in porch that runs the length of the beach side. On the right is the hammock, from which to watch the butterflies and dragonflies flitting across the flowers, in the middle are Adirondack chairs and a table, to watch the lightning show from tropical clouds running up against the mountains of Cuba (50 miles north), on...The Copper Turtle is low-key, elegant – have a good time, feel comfortable. Open floor plan (2700 sq ft!), lots of space both inside and out. The first thing that everyone notices as they walk in the front door is the really large open space, with an amazing side to side full view of the ocean, blue skies, clouds and dive boats bobbing. At the Copper Turtle we have 160 feet of lovely beachfront on the quiet North side of the Brac; our sweetest feature is the full screened-in porch that runs the length of the beach side. On the right is the hammock, from which to watch the butterflies and dragonflies flitting across the flowers, in the middle are Adirondack chairs and a table, to watch the lightning show from tropical clouds running up against the mountains of Cuba (50 miles north), on the left is the outdoor dining table, the place to set up a laptop, answer some quick e-mails, watching dive boats bobbing off shore in front of you. The 32’ fiberglass pool was installed in 2016 and is truly amazing. State of the art copper ionizer eliminates the need of chlorine, and the deck elevation provides the perfect spot to watch the sunsets. The master bedroom is large, large enough that the king size bed looks oddly small in it, French doors open out to the porch area so the tropical breezes blow through in the evening. Off the bedroom is a large marble bathroom, with 'his' and 'her' sinks, a rain shower and three bay windows looking out, yet again, over the sea in front. On the other side of the house are two more bedrooms. The “Ocean Room” is done up in blue and white, with its own seating area, opening out to the hammock section of the porch, the ocean in the background. The “Garden Room” is all in red, brown and green, the leaves of tropical trees breaking up the sunshine. The Garden room has a full bed and a twin bed. Both rooms have ceiling fans and window AC units, share a bathroom. In between the two sets of bedrooms is a really large living space that combines an open kitchen, dining and living room. Oversized fan, Samsung Home Entertainment system, dining area for eight, with a massive sectional couch right in the middle for enjoying movies or the view across the water. The sectional couch can be opened into a queen size bed. A studio on the West side of the house with a double bed, kitchenette and bathroom can be used by the larger group to spread out. Outside… the rinse-tank area with separate tanks for gears and cameras. On the right hand side of the house is the kayak, with paddles underneath. On the beach in front is a picnic table for dining while catching the last rays of the day. Plus a wooden bench precisely placed so as to get the maximum possible beauty from the sun setting over Little Cayman, off in the distance, the last plane of the day coming in in slow motion, silhouetted against the clouds – our favorite place to watch the sun set. The airport is a 10-15 minute walk from the house, the super market 20 minutes. PLEASE SEE THE LAST PHOTO FOR EXACT PROPERTY LOCATION. The location that this application provides is a little off - we ARE right on the beach! The absolute best snorkeling on the island (we've tried 'em all) is the “Fish Bowl” directly off the beach from the house – schools of chub, grunts, snappers, turtles passing through, scorpionfish, filefish, trumpetfish and just to the side is a resident school of squid (no promises!) and if you’re patient and lucky, there’s an octopus hanging out too. Strap on some gear and stroll on in. In the “Activity Closet” are the vests for the kayak, several sets of snorkel gear, a beach volleyball plus some picnic blankets. In the kitchen pantry are the barbecue tools for the grill on the beach, plus coolers and such. The kitchen itself has a complete set of dishes, cutlery and stuff plus a new 5 burner stove, new fridge, new coffee maker. We love to cook and spend about half of the year here, so you will most likely find everything you may need to make a delicious meal or bake a cake. When things get dirty use the dishwasher or the laundry room + the clothesline on the side of the house. AC throughout. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: GH-280More

The Copper Turtle and Cayman Brac offered us an extraordinary experience of vast ocean views, the sound of pounding surf and complete privacy. Even better, was the luxury of floating in the crystal clear waters of their new pool, while overlooking the Caribbean and stargazing...More

Thank you Kathy, glad to hear you enjoyed peace and quiet of the Brac. This is a perfect place to put aside busy life and listen to the waves, and enjoy sunsets over the ocean.

We loved Cayman Brac and the Copper Turtle was a great location, close to restaurants, grocery stores and the best snorkeling/diving on the island. Natalia provided all the equipment you need for snorkeling. We also very much enjoyed the kayaks. The house was great, clean...More

About the neighbourhood
The classic place to go is the restaurant at the Brac Reef Resort. They’ve got dining out in the open, a fairly classic menu of standard fare, barbecue night is on Friday. This is about a 10 minute drive. Just before the Brac Reef Resort is the Captain’s Table restaurant. They have a variety of reasonable food plus a nice bar where lots of locals hang out, Tuesdays are “Taco Night”. Next to the Marketplace grocery store is the local bar: Barracudas. Depending on what day and time you go, it can be totally dead or it can be insanely wild. Barracudas also does take out pizzas. Just at the exit from the airport is Barry’s Golden Jerk shack. They fire up the barbecue on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
Getting around
Car Rental can be done either with: - CB Rent A Car, across the street from the airport - B&S Motor Ventures Ltd. (they do free airport pickup and drop-off)
