Absolutely a Dream Cottage ... Jane & Mike, Hamilton, Canada - Feb 17
My father and I go away annually to a sunny destination. I had chosen this cottage for many reasons, and all exceeded our expectations. When we arrived we were met by Van, the property manager, who met us as the airport, despite the fact that our flight was delayed, led the way across the island and introduced to the location and its details, keys, amenities, rooms, basic stock, bicycles, etc etc. But what became my favorite was the pool and my buddies, the pool duck and turtle which told me the temperature. The whole place became what my father described as a "guilty pleasure". You woke up to the sun rising, swam in the pool before breakfast, enjoyed the first meal of the day on the deck, headed out to do our daily activities only to return swim, and then prepare meals in a fabulous kitchen, collapse for a good movie before moving to the deck to have tea and watch the stars prior to heading to your bedrooms, all with adjoining washroom/shower facilities. It couldn't have been any nicer. I definitely recommend this location, accommodation and give this site 5 star plus! Thanks Melissa for all your interaction, recommendations and the opportunity to realize a dream on the Brac at Bach! Jane & Mike, from Canada
Your own private boutique hotel !! .... Trine S, Austria - Feb 17
Staying at the Bach is like having a boutique hotel all for yourselves. You sometimes expect an overfriendly staff member to ask you yet again, if you need anything else. Don’t get me wrong, I love a nice hotel, but when you stay somewhere for two weeks, you just want to follow your own schedule, in your own company. The house is tastefully decorated, with fabrics, materials and colour combinations, which makes you want to cuddle up with a book in literarily every nook and couch in the house. Melissa, the owner, went out of her way to answer all my questions prior to our stay and provided us with a list of useful information a week or two before our arrival. She stays at the house regularly, and that is evident in every corner of the house. There is absolutely nothing you need to bring, what you normally would bring when you travel or is often missing in a rental home. Everywhere you find stacks of fresh magazines, a nicely assorted bookshelf, adapters and powercords (i.e. for apple gadgets, everything is there), lots of helpful information about the island, water bottles to bring on a hike, and even a lock for the bikes (I know you probably don’t need this on the Brac, but coming from a city, it just feels wrong not to lock up the bike when you leave it). Assortment of sun screens, first-aid pharmaceuticals and kit, laundry powder, tea, tissues, notepad etc. that you just top up if you use any of it. I could go on forever, so just trust me on this, if it is not already in the house, you probably don’t really need it. The kitchen has all you need for all levels of cooking, there is oil, vinegar and spices in the cupboard, you top up as you go, but theoretically you can start cooking the minute you arrive. The oven looked so clean and unused, I almost felt guilty using it. The island has well stocked grocery stores, but great restaurants as well for breakfast, lunch and dinner, eat in or take away. Even though we arrived late, Van, the property manager, met us at the airport and gave us a quick introduction of the house. It couldn’t have been easier.
Stunning, relaxed beach getaway ... Paula D, McLean, VA - Jan 17
From the driveway this home looks like a cute beach cottage. Until you open the front door. Then your entire group says, "Wow!", in unison. The Caribbean Sea is just in front of the living room and pool/deck area! The home is open with vaulted ceilings; everything is crisp and clean and newly renovated. It is functional, relaxed and beautifully decorated. I love that the 3 main bedrooms have their own bathrooms. There's a powder room as well. I think you have a view of the sea from every niche in the home except maybe the laundry (though if you put the drying rack in the screened porch, you can see the sea as you hang clothes!) We loved every aspect of this house. Cayman Brac is a small island, but offers lots to do if you are so inclined. We did several of the walking trails, explored caves, visited the museum and Heritage House and tried many of the restaurants. Working with Melissa was a delight. She's prompt to respond and supplies a great amount of information ahead of time as well as in the house manual. My husband and I have rented several properties in the Caribbean as well as in other parts of the world. The Bach @ Brac is definitely one of my very favorite places! We went out exploring every morning, yet I found myself wanting to return to "my home" earlier each day that passed. I would have been thrilled to have never left the cottage the entire trip. To be able to see the ocean all day and fall asleep to the sound of the waves is priceless.
The Bach @ Brac ... Kevin & Deb, Largo, FL - Xmas 16
Melissa arranged to have someone meet us at the airport. After a quick stop at the grocery store our escort took us to the house which exceeded our expectations. All of our questions were answered in a timely fashion before we arrived on the island by Melissa and she even gave us a print out of everything we needed to know about the island. More information was provided upon arrival. We didn't think it was possible to need more information because she was so though. The view from the house was spectacular . The islanders were very friendly. The island is very easy to navigate and we felt extremely safe compared to some of the places we have visited. Helpful hint, weather and holidays affects how the grocery stores are stocked and when they are opened. We made friends while on the island that were also visiting and they visited Bach @ Brac and they said they will be staying there the next time they come back.
Far beyond our expectations, a perfect escape! ... Ryan M, New York, NY - Jul 16
We were a bit nervous to stray from Grand Cayman into Cayman Brac. As soon as we walked in to this property, we didn’t even think about it once again. Best decision we’ve made. I can’t speak for the other properties on the island, but we missed absolutely nothing and gained everything. No loud families or hustle and bustle or crowded resorts - just the perfect breeze right off the ocean on the amazing deck, sound nights of sleep, gorgeous night time stars that stretched the curvature of the earth’s end, and a level of relaxation that even distant islands in French Polynesia didn’t match for us. There’s something truly special about this property. It’s unassuming from the curb as you walk in, but once we saw the views of the ocean from every room, listened to the lapping waves, everything from day to day life seemed to melt off. The pictures don't come close to doing it justice. THE ISLAND – Cayman Brac is small, quiet, and the perfect level of seclusion for a NYer. If you’re looking for nightlife or the latest Iron Chef’s restaurant, look elsewhere. But if you’re looking for the dream of seeing very few other people - but so many views and experiences you will never forget, then you’ve found Shangri-la. Particularly if you’re a person who loves the water, good hikes, and relaxation. But even moreso if you love the sights, sounds, feeling, and relaxation that comes with the beautiful emerald and deep blue expansive ocean right outside your door – this is the island, and THIS is the property to stay at. THE PROPERTY – It far exceeded our expectations. The views from every room. The comfort. The location. We didn’t want to leave the deck which comfortably lounged 4 of us, and easily could’ve accommodated more. We ate every meal outside looking right out on the water. We took many walks along the ocean. The bedrooms are beyond comfortable and decorated with style, and we had we had everything we needed to have an unforgettable day. The location is a quick saunter to a gorgeous beach, the local market for food for our lunch and dinner deck barbecues, and the local restaurants and watering holes. The owner is a lovely woman, who went out of her way to make every part of the stay far beyond what we expected. Property had a comprehensive guide and the owner mentioned they're installing a pool - that just takes it from 5 stars to 6. We will be back to this property again and again. We've found the best kept secret in all the Caribbean islands.
"This property is truly a hidden gem" .... Shamique, Grand Cayman, May 16
My stay at this beautiful home was one to remember, it made venturing out to the town seem like a task due to how comfortable it was. I intend to stay at the Bach everytime I visit the Brac as there is absolutely no other home which compares. Not to mention how helpful Melissa was with ensuring that our booking and arrival went smoothly!
"A Tiny Bit of Paradise" - Ann K, Telluride, CO - Apr 16
Where do I begin?! I was worried about leaving my 3 year old daughter behind as I ventured out for a girl's week on Cayman Brac. Once I knew she was fine and having a wonderful time with her grandparents I was able to enjoy every ounce of peace and serenity "The Bach" had to offer. I arrived at night and was welcomed to a beautiful beach house right on the water. The house was beautifully and tastefully decorated, clean, and had all the amenities you could want for a stay at the beach. The kitchen was very well stocked. There were beach towels, magazines, books, and games. There was a television, although we did not find any use for it! I stayed in the large private room off the back deck. The bed was very comfortable and I slept amazingly well after a long day of travel. Every room in the house has air conditioning. I chose to sleep with the windows open so I could here the sound of the waves. I awoke to the most amazing view! The deck is huge with chaise lounges, a table and chairs, and Adirondack chairs. We blew up an inflatable pool and the water stayed cool for several days. We enjoyed bonfires in the fire pit on the beach. The rock pools are great for spying sea urchins, fish, and chiton. The public sand beach is just 10 mins. down the road. The sand is gorgeous and the water is awesome for snorkeling. Cayman Brac is a sleepy little island perfect for getting away and forgetting your busy life for a while. Michael and Melissa's Bach is beautiful, inviting, and just perfect for lazy days in the sun. I can't wait to go back.
"Christmas @ the Bach"
"Perfect Weekend with friends and Family" ....
We had the great pleasure of staying at The Bach over Christmas Week. The home was everything it was promised to be and we enjoyed each moment we spent there.The kitchen was well-equipped, the living spaces were inviting and comfortable, and the hospitality of the owners and their local representative, Van, was genuine.
We were a group of six and never felt crowded, as the floor plan is open and airy. At the same time, there was ample privacy...a perfect balance. The home has a variety of sitting areas offering quiet places to read or nap. The outside grounds and living areas were well maintained. The linens were amply supplied and of nice quality.
The owners were gracious in providing supplies of paper goods, bottled water, etc. which we were happy to restock for the next lucky group to stay at The Bach.
Thank you for sharing this peaceful place!
We had a very nice and relaxing weekend in Melissa's house. It is very clean, has everything you need and feels like a very comfortable country house. Both kids and adults especially enjoyed the fire pit by the ocean :) We will defenetely come again. Thank you, Melissa.
"Absolutely Fabulous" .... Simon K, Boston, MA - Apr 16
My wife and I had a wonderful time at 'The Bach': the location is simply perfect, absolutely stunning view with the sound of waves soothing you to sleep and greeting you in the morning, an enormous front deck with both shade and sun so you can tan or not as you please, and furnishings and furniture well above the norm for a rental property. Melissa was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the island, and this was one of those rare vacation where everything exceeded expectations and just worked. Highly recommend to others, especially divers, and I know we'll be back soon
"Peaceful Paradise" .... Lisa R, Long Island, NY - Nov 15
Staying at The Bach was more than relaxing. The house itself is fantastic - very roomy, clean, stylish, completely equipped with everything I needed inside and out (including terrific wifi, comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen and washer/dryer). The views can't be beat and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean is heaven. Everything on the island is easily accessible - markets, beaches, restaurants - and exploring is easy. I can't wait to return to unplug and experience more of what the island has to offer. The worst part was of course, LEAVING!
"The ultimate in cozy peacefulness" ... Lance & Kathleen, Cayman Brac - Oct 15
Do you ever wonder where Cayman Brackers go to 'get away from it all? This is the place. From the moment you drive between the neatly-trimmed succulent bushes and then drive behind them, you know you are home and you are safe.
Rustic, cozy and peaceful and yet with all the accoutrements of a modern vacation or staycation: wi-fi, very comfortable furniture and beds, cold a/c, good ceiling fans and lighting. A nice touch is the motion-activated glow lights that make it such that you really don't have to turn on the lights if you choose not to.
This house is a nighttime skywatcher's delight, with no light or noise pollution. The only sounds were those of native birds and the surf. The daytime view is serene and magnificent.
The place was clean, well-stocked with cooking tools, books and games, and a wonderfully large deck and deck furniture. Grounds were well cared for.
We will definitely be back when we need peace in paradise, and I'll recommend this place to any family or friends.
"The ultimate place to unplug, unwind & recharge" ... Inge K, Westfield, NJ - Aug 15
I stayed at this gorgeous beach house with my young family for a week. It was one of the best family vacations we have had in a long time. The house is clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. There are lots of spaces where everyone can relax and the owner Melissa was wonderfully informative. The house has a SPECTACULAR view - and we miss waking up to the sound of the waves every morning now that we are home!
There is plenty to do if you wish - we snorkeled in the nearby lagoon and Buccaneer's Bay (about a 10 minute drive away) and explored the wonderful Bat Cave. Nowhere on the island takes more than 15 minutes to drive to. It is a wonderfully chilled island with stunning natural resources.
The house is fully equipped with all the mod cons - good wifi, Netflix on TV and even a panini maker!
But our favourite entertainment was lying on the chaise lounges on their deck at night and seeing the incredible stars every night. The sky in Cayman Brac is amazing! We would definitely come back when we have a chance.
