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. There is a shared full sized laundry on the property. The house is 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

We completely enjoyed our visit to Cayman Brac, and Ocean Retreat is everything that's advertised - except better. It's hard to describe the views, which were lovely. We found the cottage perfect for us in every way and the owners were so helpful - wonderful...More

We’re almost at the end of our Brac scuba trip and decided to write about how great it is now rather than wait until it’s over and we’re depressed that we have to go home. We have been staying at Jeff and Shawn Marsteller’s bungalow,...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 the bikes, a taxi or a rental car.
