Southern Reach: A Little Piece of Tropical Paradise!

Historic villa in Tibbett's Turn
Southern Reach was custom built in 2008 on the South shore of Cayman Brac. This stunning shore front home is located just 100 feet from the ocean's edge with amazing views and a comfortable breeze all year long. Our New In ground pool just off our porch and fronts the ocean and is very private. Please note our house is licensed by the Cayman Island Department of Tourism and has been inspected annually by The Cayman Islands Department of Health, The Cayman Fire Service and the Tourism Inspector. You can be assured that our house meets the strictest standards set for Rental Properties in the Cayman Islands and will result in you being totally satisfied with our property. The house offers privacy with all the modern conveniences of home. There are two private bedrooms which face the ocean and have sliding door access to the porch. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be put together if a second king bed is desired. The master bathroom is accessible from the bedroom or the main room. The second bedroom's bath is accessible only through the bedroom. Both bedrooms and the livingroom have sliding glass doors that access the breeze-cooled open air porch. There are two cozy hammocks and an assortment of lounge chairs on the porch. The area on our porch and yard to the waters edge is totally private. We also have a cleared area waterfront for private sunbathing. The house has central air conditioning, washer and dryer, dishwasher, wireless broadband internet, 32 inch smart flat screen tv in living room, one 20 inch flat screen smart tv in master bedroom, dish network, satellite tv, DVD, CD stereos with I Phone connect, and all the other amenities you would expect in a modern home. An open air private shower is located off the porch. The porch has both hammocks and lounge chairs for a nap, reading, or just taking in the refreshing ocean views and breeze. There is a coral stone shore line with a slight sandy beach. Diving or snorkeling can be done right from the shore with reef shoes if you are an experienced swimmer. There is a small cut in the iron shore on the right side of our property facing the ocean. You can enter the ocean their with reef shoes to snorkel, swim or dive when calm. Beachcombing begins right out your back door and is amazing. Beautiful sea birds will happily soar above you as you search for washed up treasure. Natural flora surrounds you, as you are located in the Cayman Country. Explore the island with its many sites, spend a day diving or snorkeling, take a walk on the beach and find some treasures, wander the nature trails in search of native birds, unwind with a wonderful meal in one of the colorful local restaurants, explore the many caves, take in all the beauty around you, then come home to relax in your own private beach house. The Cayman Islands are rated in the top five world wide destinations for diving. Enjoy your stay at Southern Reach!!! Paul & Maggie Swanson Keywords: Ocean Front Beach House

Great place, fabulous sunrise.
No problems. Paul (owner) made sure everything was in order for our arrival.

If you want an Island home with modern conveniences - Stay here!
Our weekend was enjoyable with all conveniences available inside and outside the home. The owners have many Island straw work items throughout the home, you will definitely be in Island mode! Internet service is reliable for those needing to work or catch up with family back home. Views from the porch are breathtaking, great fishing from the shore. The view from the kitchen window looks out to the bluff, you might even see rock climbers. We enjoyed watching their rock climbing adventures one afternoon. Would certainly stay here again!

Vacation 07/25-08/01/2019
Really enjoyed our stay @ Southern Reach. Property was clean and as described. I do think you should mention in your listing that there is no safe access to the ocean. Only other thing is how far it is to island amenities. Gorgeous views

5/5 Excellent

A quiet beach getaway
We spent 3 nights at Southern Reach. Paul was great about giving us information needed for our stay and also things to do on the island. It’s a beautiful spot, the ocean view is breathtaking. The waves were too big for us to go into the ocean from the house, I’m not sure if it’s the time of year or if it’s always wavy but they were beautiful to watch. The pool is great to cool off and there is ample shade if you don’t love the sun. You can find lots of treasures walking along the beach and you can walk a fair distance. We really enjoyed our time in Brac, it feels almost untouched. You can hop in the water just about anywhere with a mask and snorkle and see some of the most beautiful fish and coral. We will definitely be back!
