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.

Our family of 8 recently stayed at the Tides End and we couldn’t be more happy with our stay. The owners truly thought of everything and had ultimate comfort in mind when they designed their home. The rooms are a great size and the beds are very comfortable. We cooked most of our meals during our 8 day stay, and the kitchen has everything that you could possibly need. The best part of the house is the outdoor area. The views are incredible. We spent the majority of our time swimming, and relaxing under the purgola. There is an abundance of mosquitos so make sure that you bring bug spray. The ocean is beautiful, but keep in mind that Cayman Brac is not a white, sandy beach type of island. It has very rocky beaches and water shoes are a must. There are also a lot of sea urchins in the water. The next door neighbor allowed us to use their small boat ramp, and it made it much easier to get into the water.

We rented a vehicle from B&S and received great service. I can’t imagine being on the island without a vehicle. There are several grocery stores on the island, our favorite was the Marketplace by the Airport (Best produce selection). We also loved Barracuda's pizza (so good, and relatively cheap). One of our favorite restaurants/beaches to hangout at was the Lemon Bar and restaurant. The food and drinks were some of the best on the island. It is a beach club and is open to everyone. The beach has white sand, is clean, and there are free umbrellas and chairs to use. We also enjoyed eating dinner at the Cayman Brac Beach Resort, the food was great and it has a beautiful view.

We loved to Scuba and Snorkel on the island. There are 2 scuba companies and we used both. Our favorite company was the Brac Scuba Shack. The owners are very knowledgable and really care about their equipment and clients. We can't recommend them enough. There was a list of snorkeling/scuba spots at the house, we used this a lot. Our favorite spot to snorkel was at the wreck (located on the northwest side of the island). It was very easy to get in, and there is a large swimming area prior to swimming out into the open ocean. We saw many different types of fish, stingrays, squids, and beautiful coral.

The caves and the bluff are also something worth checking out.

Thank you so much Marcus and Jennifer for renting out your home. We really enjoyed our time at the End and on Cayman Brac. If we ever come back, we will definitely stay at the Tides End again!

Peaceful and Heavenly vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house for 7 glorious days. The house was spotless and had absolutely everything that your own home would have. The beds were so comfortable. We layed in the pool all day long. We were able to snorkel at a place called Scotts about 10 minutes down the road. It wasn't a guided tour so we were able to stay as long as we wanted. We saw so many beautiful fish. We were told by the woman in Tilley' floral shop to visit a store called Nim's Things. It had all homemade things from the island. The owner was able to tell us everything about the island. If you are lucky enough to stay at this home stop by visit the owner of Nim's. He was very informative. Enjoy your trip. Fran

Stunning and amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit at the Tides End it was just as amazing as our first. The home is immaculate, comfortable and has an amazing view. Jennifer and Markus provide everything you need and much more! Derwin was and always has been more than helpful and so kind. We spent one day with Derwin on his boat, a beautiful trip to Little Cayman and some fishing. Although we did not catch anything the next day Derwin did and brought us fresh fish for dinner! We had massages on the beach under the new cabana (with two hammocks), talk about relaxation at its finest!

We can't say enough about the Tides End, thank you so much Jennifer and Markus!

We can't wait to come back to Tides End!

This is truly the vacation we look forward to every year.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Tides End was the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing and beautiful vacation. The home was exactly as advertised. It was so comfortable with all of the amenities to keep you entertained. The kitchen was well stocked and a joy to cook in. The pool was fantastic and a great place to lounge before watching the incredible sunsets. As others have said, you will definitely want to bring water shoes for the beach area. We rode bikes and hiked around the island. Everyone on Cayman Brac is so friendly and accommodating. This was the first of hopefully many visits.

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.
