Featherstone ist die ultimative Wochenende. Seine 1 1/2 Morgen Sandstrand an einer Bucht ähnlichen Grundstück gilt als die schönste Privatstrand auf der Insel zu sein. Weit weg von der Straße und ohne direkte Nachbarn auf beiden Seiten, die Sie von Palmen und Meertraubenbäumen mit nichts in Aussicht, aber Meer und Himmel und mit Einblicken in der Klippe in den Osten und Little Cayman nach Westen umgeben sind. Auch alle Telefon und elektrischen Leitungen vergraben, so dass Sie sich wie Sie auf Ihrer eigenen kleinen Insel in der Mitte des karibischen Meeres sind.
Dieses schöne Anwesen wurde gebaut und liebevoll eingerichtet und befindet sich durch seine Innenarchitekt Inhaber beibehalten. Ihr Tag beginnt wie Sie schauen Sie am Doppel-Französisch Türen an der aufgehenden Sonne auf dem Wasser. Am Abend genießen Sie ein Abendessen auf Ihrem privaten Deck mit Blick auf das Meer und Ihren privaten Garten, während Sonnenuntergänge erleuchten den Himmel. In der Nacht, lag in der Hängematte unter den Palmen und beobachten Sie die Sterne vom Himmel fallen wie die Nacht zum Tag.
Dies ist, was Inselleben war vor 50 Jahren. Bringen Sie Ihre Bücher, Ihre Kamera, Ihre Liebsten, Ihren Stress, und lassen Sie es alle in diesem schönen Ort zu gehen. Oder allein kommen und finden, wie das Leben gemeint ist, gelebt zu werden. Weg von der schnelllebigen Atmosphäre eines überentwickelten Welt, bietet Featherstone eine Ruhe und Schönheit nur selten in der zivilisierten Welt gefunden. Wenn Sie die Klänge und Gerüche des Meeres lieben, die Ruhe des Sonnenuntergänge und endlosen Sterne in der Nacht, ist Featherstone Ihr Platz.

Stichwort: Seafront Gästeappartement
The view from the apartment in breath taking. Minnie takes such great care of her beach area. We loved watching the waves roll in from our front porch while eating our breakfast, laying in one of the hamocks or beach chairs or in the cabana. The apartment had everything we needed for a fantastic vacation. Minnie was kind and very respectful of our privacy. Thank you for such a marvelous vacation at your paradise get away.
First, Minnie's property is amazing. We had the privilege of staying at both the cottage and the apartment. Minnie was gracious enough to help with our Thursday-Thursday stay which required staying on one space for a few nights then moving to the other. If you are honeymooning I suggest the cottage otherwise personally I prefer the apartment where we stayed for the majority of our vacation. The apartment has an amazing view of the ocean and beach. Minnie's description is on point and the space IS comfortable - pillow-top mattresses, great pillows, etc. Plenty of spaces on the beach for chilling including hammocks and shelters. The property is beautiful and well maintained. It has the perfect blend of vegetation and open space. We spent a lot of time everyday in the water in front of the property. The beach at Minnie's is interesting in that it does not enter into the water this is normal on this side of the island. The only place you will find a "traditional" sandy beaches will be by the resorts. DO NOT let this deter you! Minnie has a small dock that takes you out past the iron-shore so you can either swim or snorkel. Snorkeling in front of her house is great. This place is truly wonderful and our family had an amazing time hiking the shoreline, swimming, kayaking, fishing, and just relaxing.
The island is literally a reef that came out of the ocean. Almost all of the island has what is called iron shore. Very few property owners have cleaned up the shore like Minnie has - she has the true diamond on this small island that she painstakingly carved out. We are snorkelers and used 2mm booties (I would actually get thicker booties to get through the iron shore around the island) and open heel fins to take full advantage of the snorkeling around the island - the only place you don't need this setup is by the public beach. If you have a young snorkeler I recommend the following shore dives/snorkeling locations - Handcuff Reef, Sylvia's Reef, Radar Reef, Scott's Dock, Buccaneer. They each have ladders into the water and are very easy to navigate. Be sure to bring your inflatable snorkel vest for visibility and safety.
There's not a lot of great eating locations on this island. There are a few gems- Barry's Jerk, Pat's Kitchen, and Captains Table (for lunch). I highly recommend buying fresh fish from a guy on the West Cross Road he has a large pink sign - "fresh fish for sale." $4CI/pound.
Minnie is fabulous..everyone knows her on the island...the 'apartment is below her resident location ... Everything in her "ad" was there in a very fashionable manner... A little tough going swimming in front of the place due to very windy weather, but we are snorkelers and we ventured out to find great snorkeling sites .. A few you can drive your rental car up to the stairs into the water ..Thank you Minnie for a great time ...
We stayed in both of Minnie's cottages and were comfortable in each of them. The decorating is wonderful and so is the view. The beach is sandy and the cabana and hammocks are great for relaxing in. We didn't feel well while we were there and it was a good place to recuperate. Minnie was quite helpful and accommodating. Everything was as described and we would recommend this property.
We enjoyed the island people and their food. We found a place that makes smoothies and we went there every day! The museum was interesting and the parrot preserve was too.
The only down side was not being able to get in the water from the beach. The only places that really works on this island are the public beach on the south side and the pools at the resorts. That would be my only reason to give this 4 stars. This is just how the island is. The accommodations were a 5 star.
We stayed at this beautiful property from December 28th-January 11th, 2016 and had one of the most memorable vacations. The home itself is gorgeous and way more than comfortable. The property is one of the best on the island, beautiful vegetation, landscaping, plenty of hammocks, and one of the best views of the sea you'll ever find. My husband is an avid fisherman and fished every day from shore, he loved every minute of it. We kayaked, swam, snorkeled, and napped in the hammocks. Our daughter especially loved the hermit crabs who loved us for all the treats we gave them, she also enjoyed finding every size of sea urchin shell you can imagine. You'll see gorgeous birds, and tons of fish. Hank, Minnie's partner, was especially kind to share the fresh conch he dove for--it's pretty amazing the depths he could dive! Here is a list of stuff we did on the island:
-fished, snorkeled, swam
-swam and snorkeled in "The Cut"
-ate some delicious meals of parrot fish, turbit, snapper, lobster, conch, and jack
-hiked the following caves: Peter's cave, the Great Cave, Bat Cave
-found two divers who caught fresh lobster
-ate meat pies and coconut bread from Pioneer Bakery
-drank lots of Cuban and Caymanian rum!
-ate lots of rum cake
-tried nearly every restaurant on the island (all were excellent)
-boated to Little Cayman and spent the day on the beautiful beaches (you can fly from Cayman Brac to Little Cayman for as little as $60 roundtrip)--I personally liked the boat ride though!
-met and chatted with Tenson Scott and his lovely daughter, Simone--bought quite a few things from them including rope made from silver thatch palm leaves, totes made of silver thatch palm, jewelry, and artwork.
-visited the Cayman Brac museum (a must) and the Heritage House
-spent the day on the South end of the island, visited the Lighthouse, watched the stars at night
So, as you can see, we had a more than great time--lots of memories and will return again. Minnie's property is gorgeous--both she and Hank were fantastic hosts, they know EVERYTHING about the island!! Thank you so much!
We had a fantastic time at Minne's. I could not think of a more ideal place to relax and get away from it all. My boyfriend and I traveled to Cayman Brac looking for a place just hang out at the beach and get away from the Philadelphia winter. We spent most of the time at the house. Our days consisted of making coffee and sitting out on the porch, lounging on your own private beach, kayaking and snorkleing, reading in the hammocks, grilling dinner and then having cocktails while watching the sunset. The house has everything you could need from all the possible cooking supplies to shampoo and conditioner. The bed is incredibly comfortable and from your bed you can see/hear the ocean. Minnie was very responsive to all my questions and she arranged to have a rental car pick us up at the airport. When we arrived, she had a book detailing the best grocery store, restaurants, and hikes. Ultimately, I would recommend this house for someone who is looking to relax in the Caribbean off the beaten path and wants to stay in a beautiful place who doesn't need someone to create towel animals on their bed every night. We only briefly interacted with Minnie but she is a doll. .
