The Copper Turtle is low-key, elegant – have a good time, feel comfortable. Open floor plan, lots of space both inside and out. At the Copper Turtle we have 160' of lovely beachfront on the quiet North side of the Brac.

On a dead-end street with amazing water views, close to the airport (but no worries about the noise, it is hardly noticeable), dive shops, supermarket, yet very quiet and private.

View the sunsets from the pool, or from the beach, walk on the Seven-Tenth Mile Beach, enjoy!

The space
Note: mandatory Cayman Tourist Tax (13%) is included in the pricing.

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.

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.

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. 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, Smart TV system with Roku, 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. We also have twin-size hotel quality roll-away bed that can be added to one of the bedrooms or common area.

In addition to the main area there is an air-conditioned studio with a futon bed, kitchenette, bathroom and shower. That area also can be made available for a bigger group.

Outside… is 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.

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, dishwasher. 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.

Where you’ll be

West End, Cayman Islands

Cayman Brac is a very small island. People wave to you on the road, shop owners will be happy to chat with you if you feel like it. We don't care to lock the car. The stars are so bright at night that you don't need a light to walk on the beach.
