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 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 Stake Bay

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.

Property was fantastic! It had everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest properties we have stayed at. From the pool to the ocean front and wonderful view of the ocean to the interior that was well appointed. Everything was just perfect. Great relaxing vacation.

Perfect Combo!

  • 5 of 5

From the oceanfront nature of the property to the pool/hot tub combo, this is a GEM of a house! We loved the superior outdoor facilities like the cabana with hammocks and had our coffee out by the ocean every morning! The indoor accommodations were excellent as well with a VERY well stocked kitchen and pantry. We cooked-in several meals and we were very pleasantly pleased with the ease of that. Nights around the pool (with our visiting night heron!) or indoors watching movies on the large TV which was equipped with an extensive online movie options were relaxing. For nights out, we LOVED Captain’s Table where we met some fabulous British gals on Taco Tuesdays! The whole island turns out for that. We also enjoyed the DJ and menu options at the outdoor restaurant at Brac Reef Resort on the west end of the island. Make sure you prep for some great sunset photos there! Snorkeling was what brought us to the island. The water was choppy and it was too windy to boat over to Little Cayman with our host. However we spent less $$ buying a round trip flight to Little Cayman and had the entire day there. We rented a moped and circumnavigated the island stopping at many reefs to snorkel along the way. Point of Sand was a must do but we watched some folks catch the local giant lobster who we heard was more like the mascot of the locale. Not anymore ☹️ Outside of that, Little Cayman was our favorite day. Looking back, I am glad we stayed on the Brac & flew to Little Cayman for the day. We hiked a lot of the trails & watched for the Brac Parrots. We heard that mating season in late Spring was our best bet. Remember the fresh bread at the Bakery by the police station & handcuff reef. Star Island restaurant was our go to spot for fresh fruit juices and carry out! Barry’s Golden Jerk Chicken was a must try also! Good times ... you will love this house!! P.S. please ask the neighbors if you can use his ocean entry ramp before using it! He was a nice man but made a point of thanking me for asking.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week relaxing at tides end the house is just as described in other reviews. Beautiful home on the Caribbean. Cayman Brac is a beautiful quiet island. We spent all week exploring the whole island from the lighthouse and all the caves to all the different spots snorkeling. Our favorite spot was Scott’s dock where you can easily get in the beautiful blue water and see all the colorful fish and sting rays. Definitely would recommend this home for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation

Beautiful home, beautiful island, wonderful people

  • 4 of 5

Markus and Jennifer's house on Cayman Brac is beautiful! VERY clean! The tiki hut is the best part of the property - great place to wind down each night with a cocktail, dim lights and the sound of ocean! The pool is the second best place! Loved spending 14 days laying by the pool each afternoon. Virtually no bugs. The ocean out front is VERY rocky so we didn't really go in it, but I guess if you are adventurous and really like the ocean, go for it. The water is CLEAN, but very rocky and full of sea urchins :( But overall, wonderful place to vacation. Met really nice locals, had good food (po po jebs pizza, Baracuda Bar). Don't drink the water from any of the restaurants - found out the hard way. Buy bottled water. Derwin was very responsive to all of our questions. Met us at the airport, ordered us a pizza since we had a long day of traveling. All in all - wonderful!

Well kept nice home on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week at tides end. The home is beautiful, kitchen is well appointed, two master sweets on opposite sides of the house, very quiet neighborhood. Pool is clean and the views are wonderful. Derwin met us at the airport and was responsive to our needs.

Booked our next stay before we even left...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Tides End December 23-30th, 2017. The mere fact that we booked our stay for next Christmas on the day we left…well, that should say it all!

Markus and Jennifer were the most perfect hosts. Every step of the rental process went easily and flawlessly. Questions were answered very quickly and all correspondences were handled professionally and efficiently. At no point did we ever feel uncomfortable with the process. Thank you, Markus and Jennifer!

The Property Manager, Derwin, is a man who clearly takes his job seriously and understands the importance of customer satisfaction. He was punctual, thorough, and has a great eye for detail. Derwin is very knowledgeable about all the Cayman Islands and was a wealth of information for us during the house orientation. Thank you, Derwin!

The house. Oh….the house!! What a sublime perfect setting for an island get away. As one other review stated, if you are looking for party central, this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for privacy, quiet, and luxury all in one setting then the Tides End and Cayman Brac is the place for you. My husband and I value our privacy and we relished in the fact that we saw a total of 4 people pass by on our beach area. That was heaven!!

What all the other posts say is true: the house is spotless, well laid out, well stocked, comfortable, and sheer luxury. Attention to detail is evident from the choice of appliances (and lots of them) to the fantastic entertainment unit (tv/internet/Netflix). Plenty of towels, dishes, serving bowls/platters…everything you could imagine that you would need plus more had all been thought of before your arrival. I have never seen such a well-stocked kitchen and pantry! Truly, nothing left to be desired. The home owners have thought of everything. All items in the house and pool area were in perfect working condition.

Our days consisted of enjoying the perfect weather and exploring the island. We hiked the lighthouse bluff and tried the public beach on the south side. However, every time we ventured out, we would look at each other and say, "Why are we leaving our perfect house and private beach?" and we would return to enjoy the hammocks, cabana, pool, etc... such a perfect setting!

Thank you, Markus and Jennifer for sharing your lovely home. It was the most amazing vacation we have ever had on an island...complete R and R. Thank you! We look forward to seeing you in December!
