About the Owner

As an expat from the Western States I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Cayman Brac. If you haven't been here or if you are a returning visitor there is one thing certain it's the chance of a life time to experience this place.

More Luxurious Than A Hotel - Garden Estates Combines Comfort and Royalty

  • 5 of 5
My visit to Garden Estates lasted a week, where two families and many friends gathered for a spectacular wedding on the property. Though other places in the area served the other guests' needs when it came to bedding down or freshening up, Garden Estates served as the home base for everyone. The idea of everyone at one home at one time can seem claustrophobic and difficult to manage with most vacation homes- however, this was not the case with Garden Estates. The property, equipped with a guest house, pool, lounging areas, and courtyard [,in addition to the main house], allowed everyone the space to relax and find peace in what could have been a clustered environment. The ability of this property to meet the needs of the guest during the day was carried into the night, as the sleeping facilities were provided with as much care and concern for space and privacy as a traveler could hope for. Extra mattresses, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and a spacious layout eliminates any concern for lack of space to rest up for another day of fun-filled activities at Garden Estates and around the Brac.

Be sure to share your interests with Shane, as he will provide an experience exponentially better than any other property. Shane's accommodating nature and knowledge of the island created a vacation full of excitement and adventure. He was able to accommodate our interests by finding a guide (TJ) to show us the better locations of the island, some rather hidden to someone not familiar with the Brac, yet not difficult to access. Not only was TJ able to point us in the right direction and lead us towards something enjoyable, but he also was very personal. His ability to provide some history on the island and the places we visited made the time spent with him feel more like a royal tour!

Between the luxuries and comfort, there was never a point where I found a yearning to leave the Brac and head back to the States. Everything mentioned in this review made the Garden Estates feel like a home away from home [if home was a paradise]; therefore, the most difficult part of the trip was having to leave. With that said, given the opportunity to visit the Cayman Islands again, this house will reside at the top of the list for places to stay, which is most telling of any destination - in my opinion.

Thanks to Shane and Garden Estates, my time at the Brac will be one I never forgot and one I will forever desire to relive.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for a Caribbean island vacation that's unspoiled by multiple high-rise hotels, crowded beaches, thousands of cruise ship tourists, crowded streets and shops, locals badgering you, then look no further than Cayman Brac, one of the two sister islands of Grand Cayman. It's ideal! Our three-generation family of 10, ranging in age from 8 to 73 had a terrific week at Garden Estates on the south shore of this 12-mile long by only 1.5 mile wide island. The Garden Estates owner, Shane, is a terrific host and will do everything to make your stay a perfect one at his exquisite two-acre complex overlooking the sea where privacy abounds. He has designed a beautiful, unique house that accommodated us all very comfortably. Everything you could possibly need is provided, including a fully stocked fridge that lasted for two days when we supplemented with our own groceries. One night Shane prepared a delicious Thai meal for us, which we all enjoyed with him on the huge deck overlooking the sea. Another night he had a local musician, Perry, come over and we all joined in singing and playing some of the percussion instruments to accompany his guitar and singing. On two occasions, a government nature guide, TJ, took us spelunking in two of the many caves that lay within the over 100-foot high, limestone Brac (bluff) that runs the length of the island. On the way he made numerous stops where we learned about the many plants used in cooking and medicinal purposes. Later in the week our daughter and four grandchildren, 8, 10, 17 and 19 went to four more caves where they literally had to crawl in and out of very tight spaces. Not for everyone, but they loved it! Several in our group also went fishing as arranged by Shane and caught trigger fish and snapper. Our oldest grandson prepared a delicious dinner for us that night. Snorkelling was excellent and though none of us dive or are certified, we'd like to experience this another time as Cayman Brac is known as one of the world's best dive spots. Garden Estates has a nice pool and huge surrounding patio with ample lounge chairs and hammocks. Hammocks also abound on the shaded patios adjoining the house. Nearby is an excellent, deep public beach with facilities and the day we went, we were the only ones there! A local restaurant/bar has karaoke and darts that grandkids and adults enjoyed one night. We also found the locals (2800) are extremely friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Garden Estates. Thanks Shane!

Luxury Comfort Island Living

  • 5 of 5
We arrived home 5 weeks ago and I think of this amazing estate and the beauty of the island everyday. We travelled as four couples anxious for relaxation, snorkeling, cave exploring, fishing, shell collecting, shopping, and learning the ways of the Cayman Island. We were welcomed by the "brackers" with open arms and an invitation to help us in any way necessary. This beautiful island is filled with locals who enjoy helping you feel like your at home. The owner, Shane was an amazing host, greeting and helping us with any and all request. Nothing was impossible to Shane so that he could make our visit the most enjoyable time. If you have an interest Shane will make sure it has been met. The estate was everything mentioned in the rental bio. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare any type of meal, The pantry and refrigerator were stocked with spices, meat, condiments, beer and rum along with much more; free. There's plenty space for group gatherings and privacy for serenity. Favorite spots were sitting on a retaining wall looking out at the 8 mile ocean or resting in the padded, tropical cabana. In the mornings, I especially enjoyed the wildlife of the island, and home including the boobie bird, island chickens and a special animal friend. Snorkeling is beyond describable and cave exploring is a must. At night we went to a bio bay and watched the luminous mystery of the waters. Our second night we "jammed out " with our guest musician who made it so much fun and quickly became our new friend. Shane brought a guitar to us and many nights were spent on the beach with a fire and music. Shane also arranged a day of fishing and snorkeling bringing home plenty for dinner that evening. The snorkeling is amazing and we have traveled to other parts of the Caribbean but the color and beauty of these
coral reefs are the best. As a suggestion we did bring our own frozen meat and a few other items. The entry to various parts of the island are rocky so bring good water shoes. This estate has a nice sandy beach but entry into the water does require water shoes. The shell and sea glass collecting is everywhere and Shane does a great job with an island tour upon arrival. We enjoyed shopping, visiting the local museum, bike riding, touring the island and eating at the amazing bakery and local restaurants. Looking forward to returning someday soon to this beautiful island of serenity and adventure and visiting with Shane along with our other island friends.

I just returned from the Brac after spending a week in Shane's beautiful house with my husband, our daughter and our parents. It was perfect. Our party was split between those who wanted to do absolutely nothing but sit at the house and relax and then the adventure seekers. The island and house was perfect for both. Shane hosted our wedding and the night was perfect. He helped with the details that I assumed were not important, but in the end made our day amazing. He provided us with water gear, bikes and a tour guide! He was kind enough to drop off the kayaks to different locations around the island that we could then just plop in the water. He sent us to the best restaurants and sight seeing spots. I would highly recommend this place to EVERYONE. We wanted to go back for our anniversary but apparently word gets around about this place because it's already booked a year out! Guess it's the next year! Thanks again Shane!!

Beautiful Wedding and Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I have to start out by saying, that this was one of the most incredible places I have ever been, and Shane is the most accommodating and gracious host I have ever met. My now husband and I arrived on Cayman Brac 5 days before we were to start our stay at Garden Estates. We stayed at The Alexander Hotel (which Shane had recommended, and we would too!). He met with us several days prior to our stay beginning to discuss details about the wedding. He helped us finalize much of the wedding, as well as plan it over the preceding months prior to arrival. He went out of his way another day to show us around the island and where to take our guests to snorkel, and where large groups could gather, eat, snorkel and swim.

The day we arrived on the property, he gave us a very nice tour, made sure everything was clean and ready to go. He does stock the fridge, pantry and provides beer, wine and some alcohol (which is very generous, as alcohol on the island is very expensive).

Throughout the week Shane made sure everything and everyone were well taken care of, even our guests who were not staying on the property.

Shane set us up with a guide (TJ) who took us rock climbing and cliff jumping. He showed us parts of the island only a local knows.

In the process of planning a wedding, Shane was able to take care of essentially everything! We did not have the luxury of traveling to the island prior to the wedding, but after meeting Shane and after correspondence, it would have been completely unnecessary. He was able to find us an officiant (George Walton). Shane was also able to recommend a baker for the cake (Mario at Brac Reef...the best cake I have ever had, and the presentation was incredible, especially for the price!) Shane was able to give me the name of the florist, and while we didn't end up using her, the correspondence that I had with her was nice. Shane also arranged the food for the event, which was delicious. He was also able to recommend and obtain entertainment for the evening. Shane had assured me and lived up to his promise that we could have flowers from another property that he owns on the island. The house was decorated with all sorts of tropical flowers, and went above and beyond our expectations. I'm biased as it was our wedding, but it was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to. It was a dream come true! Shane went above and beyond all expectations, and we cannot thank him enough for a wonderful wedding and vacation!

We recently spent 10 days on Cayman Brac. Our trip was for our daughters wedding and a vacation. The bridal party stayed at Shane's beautiful garden estate, it's truly a piece of paradise. The property is amazing and the pictures are right on. When planning a destination wedding so far away you are truly in someone else's hands. We can't thank Shane enough for all he did to make this occasion so special. From the incredible setting to the wonderful food it was a perfect day. His knowledge of the island and passion for sharing it was great. He booked
fishing, diving and cliff climbing trips went out of his way to make this trip very special. I would highly recommend the garden estate for a special occasion or a relaxing vacation. THANK YOU SHANE.

From the Owner

I have recently relocated from Seattle, Wa. to Cayman Brac and it has been nothing but a blissful serenity since arriving on this magnificent Island. These friendly, warm 'Brackers' as they are called, welcome visitors to their island with open arms. Unlike its more developed sister, Grand Cayman, the Brac has managed to remain relatively unspoiled, although modern enough to provide the comforts of home. I have traveled most of the Caribbean and abroad and nothing compares to the unique and rich flavors that the local folk here deliver. This Island is a safe haven for harmony minded and thrill seeking individuals!

From the Owner

This is truly the most unique location and home that is just not offered anywhere else. For the owner to open up this estate is nothing but a treat for those of you who seek out the maximum comfort and quality that you would want from any high end vacation home around the world to offer. The library has a hand etched marine glass French doors and a 100 book collection. Too much hand blown glass throughout the home to get into including all bathroom sinks as well as kitchen bar lights. Spanish stone kitchen countertops ebb and flow with the all stainless steel appliances. The landscaping is pure beauty and it has been handcrafted in every detail which shows from the point of entry. The 8 mile coastal view is only offered from our birds eye view as the property is expanded out on one of the few jetties the island has to offer. This is anything but a humble abode. 24 hour request service is available including massage, chef and live Carib music right at the estate. Very large stainless steel fridge and freezer fully stocked with food, beer and rum all included in the price. Treat yourself and book this special memory and try to do so early!!! See you soon.
