Secluded Sunset is a perfect name for this property. It was everything we expected plus more. Our "island girl" Sasha was amazing. She cooked us a fabulous dinner and always made sure see had everything we needed. Ten stars for this vacation
Just what we were looking for—wonderful!
We wanted warm, tranquil, and by the sea. Several folks suggested the Cayman Islands, and specifically Cayman Brac.
Secluded Sunsets was a delight. Henry's planning notes were a comfort in advance, and useful in practice. Our 2nd-floor apartment had a great deck, right by the ocean waves, and was clean, spacious, well-equipped, and tranquil. The little swimming pool was a treat, both for lounging by, and for exercising a sprained ankle. Ocean waves—wonderful!
Sasha, the caretaker, is a treasure. From first meeting us at the airport and guiding us on the short drive to the apartment, through short daily encounters, to fabulous cooked dinners. Definitely ask her to cook you some dinners! Conch fritters, jerk chicken, and maybe best of all, fresh, fresh Grouper; with nicely-seasoned side dishes.
The site was also a wonderful base camp for several expeditions, including snorkeling a short drive away, drives and walks along the North and South shores, and a trip to the lighthouse and Boobies and the Parrot Preserve. We also took an excellent free tour with staff from the Nature Tourism Department. They will give you a custom/personalized tour anywhere and everywhere on the Island—anything—heritage sites, nature trails, conch diving, even the island power plant —and our guide was friendly and highly knowledgable. Brochures are in the apartment. Google naturecayman.
We want to come back!
Quick reminder to Henry and Sasha to update the binders in the apartments—restaurant menus, brochures, etc.

Beautiful Spot – Quiet and Friendly Island
We had an amazing stay! The information sent before we came from Henry was excellent and picking up our car at the airport was seamless.
The house was great- lots of room and great view of the ocean, and the pool, from the large deck. Bring your water shoes or dive boots (warn with open back fins) with you for water entry.
We dove from shore and with Brac Scuba Shack and had a marvelous experience. People on the island are amazingly friendly. The house was great to come ‘home’ to and the beach area was great to watch sunsets from.
We used the bicycles and toured around a bit. We also had a car and hiked the trail by the light house a couple of times. We had come from 10 days on Grand Cayman. We so enjoyed the friendly, quiet island and the amazing house that had everything we needed.
We wanted to try the paddle boards but waited too long and the sea got a bit rough to try…..next time!
We used the grill outside for one evening and cooked on the GAS range the other nights- except for our first nigh we went to Barry’s Jerk Chicken and it was great. We brought some food with us from Grand Cayman and wanted to use it.
We plan to flip our trip next time and spend 10 days on Brac and 7 on Grand Cayman!!
Thanks to Henry and Sasha!
We're so glad you had a wonderful stay here on the Brac. Sounds like we'll be seeing you again next year.
Great house, beautiful view and very relaxing
The house is great...very spacious and comfortable. We stayed in the upstairs unit. It has 2 queen beds in the bedroom separated by a curtain, so technically 4 people could stay in one room if you don't need privacy, but for 2 people, the house was perfect. We really enjoyed the pool. Took the kayak out one day when it was calm. Loved the hamocks and the sunsets. My only complaint is that the shoreline is very rocky and full of coral and urchins. It was very difficult to get in and out of the water to go snorkeling right by the house. Water shoes are a must and then you have to try to put on your fins with the small waves and currents knocking you into the coral. If you're not a diver there isn't a whole lot to do on Cayman Brac. Getting in and out of the water for snorkelers is probably easier on Grand Cayman. Next trip we will probably divide our time between the 2 islands. The only reason I gave the house 4 stars is because lounge chairs (both the wooden ones and the plastic ones) are in great disrepair. We didn't try the bicycles so I can't comment on those. Sasha made us dinner one night and it was delicious...highly recommend! I would recommend getting a car which we did just for the convenience of getting groceries and finding good restaurants. Recommend Barry's jerk chicken, Barracuda's Bar for pizza and the Captains Table for Tuesday Taco night. It was a beautiful place to spend 9 days!
This information is for your next trip and making the snorkeling more enjoyable. Also I wish you would have let us know that you had difficulty we would have educated you to make sure you didn't have issues.
First, we have high quality water-shoes if you don't have your own. Any urchins will not puncture the shoes we have.
Second, if the water is not calm enough then go down to Buccaneers Cut just 1/4 of a mile away - it has a ladder entry or to Scotts' Dock which is 1/2 of a mile away.
Note: Our beach is sandy - the coral rocks are at the water line and in the water. It is one of the best beaches on the island.
If you take your time to enter the water you'll be fine. Let any little waves go by - with the water being so crystal clear you can see exactly where your next steps will be. So take two or three steps, stop, let the wave go by and when the bubbles clear go ahead and take a few more steps; repeat that process. If you have a snorkel partner then hold hands to give you more stability if its a little wavy. DO NOT JUST MARCH OUT INTO THE WATER! So you walk out until you're almost CHEST HIGH in the water and find a nice sandy spot and put your fins on and away you go. Do not attempt to put your fins on in shallow water especially when there are waves - Thats a bad recipe. IMPORTANT - when your finished remember to take your fins off when you're in chest deep water and in one of the many sandy areas. If you try to take your fins off in waist deep water or less and a wave comes it can knock you over - not good. Also when you walk into the shore line stop for all waves and spread your feet, hold hands, let the wave go by and repeat. KEEP AN EYE on the waves behind you and stop walking before it reaches you.
I know others have had issues but when they understand how to enter properly and why - they seem to be just fine.
When I left 3 weeks ago all the plastic loungers were fine. I'll find out what the issue is when I return next week. Out of the dozen wood loungers we moved 2 out of use because they had broken hinges. the other ten were fine. If you lift the back there are flip up stops so that you can set the desired angle of the back.There are also cushion on the deck boxes and I'm wondering if you found them.
I guess knowledge is power. Please if you have issues in the future just ask and we'll get things sorted out.
Very nice place! Perfect location!
The sunsets are gorgeous! Loved sitting on the upper deck! Nice spacious rooms. Everything you need for a great vacation!
Great location and hospitality.
I would highly recommend this property for divers or non-divers alike. It has spacious open concept kitchen/family room with awesome deck overlooking Caribbean Sea. Close to diving, restaurants and airport. Great setup on beach with multiple hammocks under tiki hut. Also has heated pool. The owner (Henry) was very hospitable and allows guests to use certain facilities at his house, eg, paddle boards. Only disappointment (not related to property) is that there seems to be a lack of fresh fish on the island (apparently fishermen don’t go out when surf is rough). Otherwise, this is perfect vacation spot.
