    About this property

    Turtle Crossing, a Place to Spread out and Relax

    Turtle Crossing is a large 2,700 sq. ft. three bedroom, three bath villa seventy five feet from the beautiful Caribbean. The villa is made for relaxation with large bedrooms, each with a seating area allowing one to withdraw comfortably for rest or reading. There is a large fully equipped kitchen. The bathrooms are large with two having two lavatories. One bathroom has an oversize jacuzzi-equipped tub with shower. Another is tub and shower, and the third being shower only. There is a dining area with a large table and chairs. There is an entertainment area with TV, comfortable sofas, a large reading library, games, DVD's and even some classic VCR's. Another seating area overlooks through sliding glass doors the veranda and the sea. The veranda is fifty feet long equipped with table and chairs, ideal for a morning breakfast as you watch the sun come up, for evening cocktails with snacks or for any meal, bridge or whatever. Farther along the veranda there are lounges and chairs with ottomans. Just off of the veranda is a gas grill built into a concrete and stone counter surrounded by bar seating. About 50 feet from the water, it is a wonderful place for cocktails at sunset or just for the family to gather around. The kids can watch Pops burn the hamburgers. Thirty feet from there is the owners' tiled fresh water swimming pool which is available to our renters. It is difficult to mention all of the amenities. Of course there are washer and dryer as well as WIFI throughout the house. The lower floor bedrooms have walk in closets and king size beds. The upstairs bedroom has two single beds that can be made up together as a king if desired. Outside, around the corner from the veranda, there are facilities for rinsing and drying dive equipment. There are two bicycles for the athletic and adventurous. A card table is available. The owners have tried to do everything possible to provide the means for guests to have a memorable and relaxing vacation experience.

    Great stay at turtle crossing!

    We were greeted at the airport by the friendly owners to show us home. The house was large,clean and spacious and looked just like it did on the photo’s online. We liked that it was close to Bra Scuba shack where we did our diving. With three kids being able to wash clothes and cook some meals worked out well. Overall a great place to stay and would book again if we came back to Brac!

    Holiday in Paradise

    Bill and Isla Nelms have one of the loveliest properties we have visited. We travel across the USA and to Europe. Our stay in Turtle Crossing exceeded our expectations. We traveled with friends from Ireland and they were gobsmacked by the beauty and tranquility of the Brac. Isla makes the best key lime pie in the universe and Bill makes a martini that makes the evening stars blush. Go here! You will never find better hosts than Bill and Ilsa.

    The Perfect vacation home on Cayman Brac!

    Turtle Crossing was perfect for our dive vacation. The house is so comfortable and equipped with everything you could possible need. Central A/C was a must for us and the A/C was great!! The Nelms are amazing hosts! They stocked the fridge for us, as they knew that we were flying in on a Sunday and the grocery stores would be closed. So, they put eggs, milk, butter, bread and fresh OJ in the fridge and had jam, tea and coffee for our breakfast the next morning! The house is huge, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and is extremely spacious and clean. The view is outstanding - you couldn't get closer to the ocean! And the location is perfect - close to restaurants, the supermarket and dive operators. We did our diving with Brac Scuba Shack. I would highly recommend them! Their boats are perfect and the valet service is amazing. Can't wait to come back to the Brac next year!

    Enjoyed every minute of it.

    Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Nice house, with a beautiful view, located on a gorgeous island, what else one can ask for?

    You won't find anything better than this

    Turtle Crossing couldn't be set closer to the sea; every view is breath taking (even from bed), as the sound of the waves soothes away all stress. Our hosts the Nelms are likewise as pleasant and intriguing, who were helpful, generous, and always considerate of our privacy. While on the island we enjoyed snorkeling, climbing/hiking, caves, sunsets worthy of top 10 list, biking, and local fare consisting of the freshest of fresh seafood daily and jerk chicken! If you are looking for peace and tranquility look NO further, you won't find anything better than this!
