The master also has a 42' flat screen HDTV, and a walk-in closet . The open floor plan of the living/sun/dining room and kitchen allows guests to interact as well as see the ocean in all areas. Three seating areas in addition to the dining area provide ample room for games, TV or chatting. the living room has a 49' HDTV with entertainment system. The house sleeps up to 6 when using the queen size hide-a-bed located in the sunroom. Included in each house are several games, paperbacks, free stateside phone to make and receive calls from home and a local cell phone. You can also experience a local game using the local soldier crabs or 'hermit crabs' in a circle and seeing whose wins the race to the food in the center. Whenever we are there my daughter takes a little leftover food out each evening and they have come to expect it and show up for 'dinner'. They range in size from baseball size hermits to tip of your pinky sized ones. An adjacent cottage (Ocean Retreat) is also available for rent. (Property 4016748) Inquire for rates that include both houses. It sleeps up to four when using the living room hide-a-bed. The cottage has been completely remodeled with gorgeous vanilla cabinetry and quartz countertop. All new appliances, as well as furniture. This gem features its own front porch as well as an oceanfront, side patio with a double lounger perfect for romantic evenings. There is a shared full sized laundry on the property. The house and cottage are located just 90 feet from the ocean with 85' of shoreline. The beach is rocky, so water shoes are a must! There are several good snorkeling areas just off the shoreline boasting an abundance of vegetation, reefs and marine life. A short five minute drive to the dive shops and shopping. Initial food supplies can be purchased and placed in house for your convenience if you desire. Just submit a list and reimbursement can be made when you arrive. More

About the neighbourhood
Cayman Brac has a 'Gilligan's Island' quality but with all of the essentials for modern life. The slow pace of the island allows for visitors to truly recharge during their visit. If you love peace, tranquility, reading a good book or playing games with others this place is for you! Of course there is plenty to do! You can tandem bike, kayak, snorkel, scuba dive, swim, sunbathe, hike, get involved with iguana or turtle preservation (counting eggs, setting the baby turtles out to sea), fish and many more activities. There are places to get a cocktail and a meal out. what there isn't is lots of tourists, busy roads, traffic, casinos, chain restaurants, nor movie theaters. It is truly for peace and relaxation!
Getting around
Free use of bikes at house, taxi or a rental car.
