Come discover this oceanfront, beautifully appointed, vacation retreat located in quiet and scenic Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands. Located only a short 30 minute flight from Grand Cayman, this brand new home offers stunning oceanfront vistas with all of the comforts that will make your stay memorable for both you and your family.

The open concept floor plan allows for breathtaking views and endless entertainment options. The main room includes a fully-equipped kitchen, dining and living areas. Overlooking the ocean are two master king bed suites each with their own tiled baths. A third bedroom has a queen bed and offers views of palms and other tropical foliage. Separate pantry and laundry rooms provide ample storage and a full sized washer and dryer for your convenience.

The pool and beach area are a kids (or adults) paradise. Enjoy the large pool and related water and beach activities or relax in the spill-over unheated Jacuzzi with the calming sounds of the rolling surf. The outdoor gas grill offers a spot to cook your day's catch and there is ample seating to dine outdoors. Solar shades provide relief from the sun and you can also relax in the comfortable hammock nestled among the palms.

Indoors, kids and adults alike will find numerous entertainment options from board games to a selection of favorite movies on our media server. An Xbox One system provides gaming, Netflix and music on the main 65" 4K curved screen. US TV service is available via a DishAnywhere app on our media computer. All three bedrooms have 40" LED TVs with Netflix and Blu-ray players. High speed connectivity with WiFi will keep you busy downloading and playing games on your computer or staying in touch with work if you need to.

Rain or shine, activities on the island abound. Cayman Brac is a world-renowned diving destination. Dive and snorkel right off our beach or take in a number of marked shore dive sites around the island. Boat excursions are also available for diving, snorkeling and fishing. Use our kayak to explore the shoreline. The island also offers hiking and rock climbing opportunities with many caves to explore. Cayman Brac is a unique, friendly and tranquil destination, for those who want to experience real Cayman culture with its safe, uncrowded natural beauty and without giving up quality and amenities that one experiences at home.

You will be in good hands with our local partner, Derwin, who will greet you at the airport, provide you an introduction to our home and will be available should any need arise during your stay. Along with a wealth of local knowledge, he can also provide charter fishing, snorkeling, or boating services and can even take you on a trip to Little Cayman to explore its tranquil reefs and beaches.

We built our home with our own use in mind and did not compromise on design, furnishings or amenities. We are sure you will enjoy it too. Please see the reviews for our other property located on the Oregon Coast, VRBO listing 353854.

About Markus Kuhn

Markus and Jennifer are hardworking (probably overworked!) high tech professionals who immensely enjoy outdoor activities and all the beautiful natural attributes that Cayman Brac offers. After purchasing a beachfront home on the Oregon coast, they came to Cayman Brac on a whim during a Caribbean vacation, and fell in love with the island. They immediately purchased a beachfront lot and began building a tropical oceanfront vacation home which has become a second dream fulfilled. They can now enjoy two completely complementary homes, one in the colder and wilder American northwest, and another in the tranquil beauty of Cayman Brac.

Markus Kuhn purchased this villa in 2015

Why Markus Kuhn chose Cayman Islands

Cayman Brac is the perfect island paradise for families and those couples who want a more relaxed, 'get away from it all' type of atmosphere without leaving civilization behind. It offers natural beauty with abundant outdoor land and water activities. Our property is centrally located, private and oceanfront.

What makes this villa unique

Located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, our home is located directly on the beach with spectacular ocean activity and sunsets. It was designed for entertaining, both indoors and out. The large pool, spa, deck and beach areas provide ample activities for kids and adults, truly a place to get away from it all. Two master suites provide additional comfort for traveling couples or extended families. We want to provide the same opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of Cayman Brac which attracted us to this island. We built our home for our own use and did not compromise on design, furnishings or amenities. We are sure you will enjoy it too. Please see the reviews for our other property located on the Oregon Coast, VRBO listing 353854.

Absolute tranquilty!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet restful place to stay in a beautiful location, look no farther than Tides End. This house is on a quiet road and everything in the house is of the highest quality. They provide a kayak, which we enjoyed on one of the calmer day....it was fantastic! We also love the pool, which is a great size. They recently added a cabana just off the pool area, it is perfect as it has two hammocks and also has an area to set a couple chairs if you like. I liked the extra area to do some exercising out of the sun. Derwin the caretaker was very helpful with information and promptly returned calls if we needed something. He is also available to take you fishing or snorkeling if you have the interest, unfortunately while we were there, the weather didn't permit it. But that was alright, because the house, pool and grill are awesome. The house is not far from restaurants if you prefer to eat out.

This is the second time we have rented this house, and we already have booked for next year!! Mark and Jennifer are excellent host, happily answering any questions to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Upscale Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Markus and Jennifer, thank you for sharing your home with us in Cayman Brac. If we were to build a home in the Cayman Islands this is exactly how it would be done (and we are considering). With two identical master bedrooms the comforts available for yourselves and guests are endless, combined with the added benefits of an additional room for extra guests and top of the line amenities and furnishings is definitely a plus. In a secluded location guests are free to enjoy privacy and being steps away from the ocean day and night.

Fantastic & well equipped home.

  • 5 of 5

House was even nicer than described. Clean, and equipped with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay! Great snorkelling off the beach on calm days, and nice clean pool for swimming on windy days. Fantastic scuba diving off the island (highly recommend Reef Divers scuba shop) Communication leading up to and during stay was prompt! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. This place is a unique find.

Cayman Brac is a beautiful but quiet little island - it's supplies come by barge weekly so note grocery selection can be limited and expensive. It is surrounded by coral so good to bring watershoes. The island is small, so easy to get around by car (rental car recommended) I was greeted by waves and smiles every morning on my run. If you're looking for a place with a lot going on - restaurants & nightlife Cayman Brac may not be the best place. However, if you're looking for warm waters, outdoor activities and breathtaking views (both on land and underwater) Cayman Brac is highly recommended.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest, cleanest homes we have stayed in. House was perfect without any need for change or additions. The house and the Brac are a perfect combination for a totally stress free, relaxing vacation. The hardest thing we had to do was hunt down fresh fish for dinner, which there are a few options on the island. At the end of the street on the main road just East there is a small store where (Michelle ?) was able to get us together with some locals out fishing and we had some outstanding Wahoo for dinner. Highlight dinner of the week.

The patio and pool were great for lounging, the TV with Dish and computer were nice also.

Perfect enough to reserve for next year the day after returning home.

Markus was responsive for questions that I had and Derwin Scott the rep on the island is as nice as you will meet.

Great place, great vacation.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is brand new and very large. Fornitures, bathrooms and kitchen all is top level. In particular we truly enjoyed the kitchens appliances (the oven with internal temp probe allow us to cook wonderful cuts of meat), the Weber propane BBQ and the superb AV System.

The outside jacuzzi is nice but with too low jet pressure and too cold water to be truly enjoyable.

The sea in front is (very) good for snorkelling, but only in case of calm water. The first days we had rough sea and it was barely impossible to enter the water due to rocks and the many sea urchins.

The pool is large, very deep and very usable.
