    About this property

    Contemporary Open House, Oceanfront, Private Pool, Sweet Sunsets

    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 feet of lovely beachfront on the quiet North side of the Brac. The best snorkeling site on the island called the "Fishbowl" is right in front of our house. When the ocean is calm - put on water shoes, grab snorkel gear, and be amazed! Note: please contact us before booking partial weeks Dec 1 through March 30 (peak season). We will try to accommodate partial week rentals when possible. We are located on the island of Cayman Brac. Cayman Brac is one of 3 islands in the Cayman Islands. You can book your 40 minute flight from Grand Cayman through Cayman Airways, which has several flights each day to Cayman Brac. There are direct flights to Cayman Brac from a number of cities in the USA. 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. The photos don't do it justice, people walk in and: "Wow, this is amazing!". 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, 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. 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, large smart TV 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. Outside… the rinse-tank area with separate tanks for gears and cameras. Rugged outdoor speaker so you can play the music from your phone while in the pool. 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! 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.

    A dream vacation!

    We stayed at Copper Turtle for a week and it was by far the best vacation we have ever had! Natalia was so wonderful to deal with, open to our questions and gave some great ideas about things to know/do on Brac. The Copper Turtle exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect in terms of proximity to conveniences (groceries, liquor, airport) but had a feeling of complete seclusion. The home is absolutely beautiful and had enough basic amenities that we felt like we were at home instead of feeling like we were living in someone else’s home. The pool was clean and warm and the grounds were really well looked after. Sandra, the property manager, was so great. She was pleasant, happy and even cooked us a traditional Jamaican meal. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation for us and our 3 young kids. It really was perfect! Thanks for having us and we hope to be back again!!

    amazing

    we loved this house and property it was amazing, it was in a good location for a relaxing vacation. we will definitely be coming back as soon as we can, the house manager was very nice and helpful.

    4/5 Good

    Great pool, private setting, but house needs some TLC.

    Some things we absolutely loved, a few we didn't. To be fair, we will mention both. Windows give an amazing view. We LOVED the screened porch, especially hammock. We spent a lot of time out there. We LOVED the pool! It was our favorite thing. The steps & sitting ledge are great. It was very clean. The owners were very easy to work with. Emails were answered promptly. They provide a lot of valuable info. The property managers were courteous & helpful. We are not divers, but snorkelers. We went with the idea of easily being able to snorkel. The wind was very strong, but no one can control that. We were told it was unusually windy. There were a lot of days, it was impossible to go snorkeling due to that. Even on calmer days, we found it impossible to get in the water at our beach. The beach is all rocks, and after getting into the water, there is a lot of jagged, sharp rock, and many sea urchins. So between all that, my husband only went in twice, and the second time cut his leg. We did manage to find a few other spots that were easier for getting in/out, but overall, most of the beaches are all rocks. That being said, we should've done our homework better for a suitable location for our needs. There were a few things in the house that we didn't like. The stove & surrounding counter were not clean. Other rooms were though. Even though owners warn about ants, & we kept everything sealed & clean, we still got them in the kitchen trash bad one time, & they came here & there throughout the rest of our stay. That bothered us. We met another VRBO owner that said they had the same problem, but once they started having a service do regular spraying, it was no longer a problem, so possibly the owners could look at. The French doors adjacent to screen porch were in very bad shape. We used only one the whole time we were there, but, it made a lot of noise, and stuck every time, which made it inconvenient. A lot of the other ones we couldn't even open, including the master suite. We wanted to open them & get breezes coming through, & were not able to do that, so it was disappointing. About a week into our stay, the master bath septic backed up into the shower drain, & we were unable to use that bathroom until it got fixed. Fortunately, we were able to use the other bathroom. We were told, & understand that the septic system there is delicate, but maybe something else needs to be done to fix it better. Overall, we had a wonderfully relaxing vacation.

    Wonderful place on a wonderful island!

    I honestly can’t say enough about this vacation property on the Brac. Firstly, I need to say that Natalia was so easy to deal with and helped out in every way that she could. The house is very comfortable, has everything needed for a stay in paradise and spacious. The property has quite a few trees which give much needed shade and this makes it possible to be outside at any time of the day, evening or night. Just outside the screened in porch (wonderful in itself) is the pool...an amazing addition to this property and a great place to spend lazy afternoons. We also appreciated the Dive Shed with its rinse tanks and sturdy hangers for drying gear out of direct sunlight. This property is in a wonderful location for many reasons...north side of the island which seems cooler, close to many great dive sites, snorkeling sites, markets, airport, restaurants...and yet feels very quiet and isolated. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer, soap, etc. We never used the dryer as there are great drying lines on the west side of the house to hang laundry, wet towels and swim suits. Loved this! We had a wonderful stay at the Copper Turtle and would more than happily come back. Wonderful place on a wonderful island!!

    The Gem of Caymen Brac is the Copper Turtle

    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 at night. The home shows pride of ownership. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and a huge screened in porch to view the rich colors of the sea. Copper Turtle is immaculate and well stocked with little extras that make you feel special. Working directly the owners of Copper Turtle was delightful. They assisted us with scheduling, stocking the fridge and responded promptly to any questions we had. We highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a peaceful getaway with amazing views and a charming, unique and relaxing atmosphere.
