Wonderful location and privacy

  • 4 of 5

We loved the wrap-around porch for perfect relaxation! The location was perfect for the privacy we value. We also appreciated the way the home was set up for our every convenience (lawn chairs, barbecue, local cell phone, clothesline, lots of beach towels, etc.) and the availability of helpful staff if needed nearby.

The organization and service were great! The location was also great for local restaurants and markets.

We had come to the island for snorkelling, but found that windy weather and high wave conditions did not cooperate the week were there. But we had a wonderful time on the Island, exploring the views, caves, walks and other attractions. The free island tour is terrific; they customize each tour to your preferences.

Thanks very much for a lovely stay!

What an amazing view from this cute cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Colleen and I really enjoyed our stay here for our honeymoon. The cottage is an adorable pink house, which is on stilts, over looking the beautiful blue / green Caribbean ocean.

There are three beds upstairs in the loft area - one queen and two singles. The downstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed. This downstairs bedroom also has a/c which is a nice bonus. The rest of the house is cooled with the tropical breeze - especially if you open the beach side and back door by the kitchen. There are screens on all the doors as well as the windows which helps to keep any bugs out. We didn't find there to be many annoying bugs on the island. There are also many plug in bug sound emitting deterrents in the cottage.

The kitchen is really well appointed. Even a microwave / coffee maker. Just no dishwasher - which wasn't expected.

These owners really have taken a lot of time to think about what one would need to make their vacation easy. The downstairs rinsing station / shower is perfect for cleaning scuba / snorkel gear - lots of hooks to hang up your bcd / mask / fins after.

Upstairs small details like drilled holes on the deck so the French doors can be held open without needing to find a bunch of heavy rocks. Extra suntan lotion should you forget yours. I was very impressed with the thoughtfulness.

Don't expect 700 threadcount linens on the beds. It's a bit casual there - but the beds are quite comfy.

Outside of the cottage - the diving on this island is amazing. The snorkelling can even be done right out front of the cottage. It is indeed a good idea to enter just to the left of the house next door. There is a giant rock formation about 20 feet out which rises to about a one foot depth. Go around that from the left and it starts to get deeper - with a wall not that far out and sporadic coral & fish all around!

The island is small. Get used to paying $10us for milk - if the barge comes in on Thursday. Don't expect there to be huge choices either. But it all adds to the charm and it is quite facinating to live such a small island lifestyle.

Expect almost everyone to wave at you when you drive or walk by. It's a very friendly island. The cottage is very close to the airport where most grocery stores / small restaurants are.

Be sure to check out Barry's Jerk Chicken. Only open Wednesday / Friday / Saturday. What a great guy - and his secret recipe jerk chicken sauce - awesome!

The Scuba Shack is a friendly small shop to get your scuba needs.

Amazing week on the Brac at Winta Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous experience on Cayman Brac at Winta Cottage. Janet was great to work with, answered emails and questions promptly. Very helpful when we had a flight cancellation. The cottage was exactly as advertised. Didn't need the AC and loved being lulled to sleep by the waves. Most of our time at the cottage was spent outside on the deck or below bbqing and hanging in the hammocks. The outdoor shower was put to great use! The entry into the water was really tricky due to sea urchins but there are other easy entries close by i.e.) Scott's Dock, Buccaneers etc. The property was clean and well-maintained and Jesse gave a great welcome. We would highly recommend Winta Cottage and would love to return!

The perfect start to a marriage

  • 5 of 5

When my new. Wife and I were trying to find a place to honeymoon, we struggled for quite some time, but then, we stumbled on this little gem. When I say that, I mean both this exquisite island and the beautiful property at Winta cottage. If you want privacy, this is your place. If you want quiet and relaxation, look no further. If you want to feel like you're the luckiest people in the world, email Janet now.

Beautiful tree house!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend on this tall, "tree house" looking house. The house is private, with very quiet neighborhood. This is perfect for relaxation and meditation. It has also unobstructed views of the ocean and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the deck. Overall, a relaxing experience.
