A dream vacation!
We stayed at Copper Turtle for a week and it was by far the best vacation we have ever had! Natalia was so wonderful to deal with, open to our questions and gave some great ideas about things to know/do on Brac.
The Copper Turtle exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect in terms of proximity to conveniences (groceries, liquor, airport) but had a feeling of complete seclusion. The home is absolutely beautiful and had enough basic amenities that we felt like we were at home instead of feeling like we were living in someone else’s home. The pool was clean and warm and the grounds were really well looked after.
Sandra, the property manager, was so great. She was pleasant, happy and even cooked us a traditional Jamaican meal.
We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation for us and our 3 young kids. It really was perfect! Thanks for having us and we hope to be back again!!
Best Caribbean Vacations Ever!
If you are looking to relax and enjoy some quiet, this is the place for you!!!
We traveled to Brac Nov 3-17, 2018, this was our third time there. We love Brac. This year we rented Natalia's beautiful home. It was wonderful and well worth it. The home is located in a very quiet section of the island but yet very close to the airport, shopping and restaurants. The front yard is tastefully landscaped.
The home is very spacious with a large kitchen, large living room and three bedrooms. Home has a screened in rear porch where you are able to have meals at the table, sit and enjoy the breeze, view of the water and sounds of the waves, or just take a nap in the hammock. The pool has a canopy covered area where you can lay or nap.
Over the two weeks we barely saw any neighbors on the beach and it felt very private. We saw more crabs trying to sneak up to the pool than neighbors on the beach.
Snorkeling in the sea in front of the house was amazing. Only a short swim out and you can see such a variety of fish. A must do!!!
Sandra, the caretaker, and her husband met us at the airport and brought us to the house. Sandra showed us around and left us her number in case of any problems.
Natalia's home exceeded our expectations. Communication was very easy.
We want to thank Natalia for her hospitality and we are so grateful for allowing us to vacation in her home.
We did not want to leave.
Thanks a lot Oscar, very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! "Catch the crab before it jumps into the pool" is a fun game ;-) Hope we can host you again in the future!
we loved this house and property it was amazing, it was in a good location for a relaxing vacation. we will definitely be coming back as soon as we can, the house manager was very nice and helpful.
Return Visit To Copper Turtle
We just returned from our visit to Copper Turtle on Cayman Brac. The best testimonial I can give a destination is that we are repeat guests. This was our second visit to Copper Turtle in a year and the house was better than ever with several improvements. As with our first visit, Ms. Sandra the house manager, had Copper Turtle spotlessly clean. Natalia and Alek added a deck to the front of Copper Turtle and a walkway from the house to the pool.
As mentioned in an earlier review, Copper Turtle and Cayman Brac is a wonderful destination for those looking for a laid back atmosphere. The island is very safe and the folks are so friendly. Everything is nearby to Copper Turtle including the airport, grocery store, and several restaurants. We rented a car from CB Rentals and the folks from the agency were waiting on us when we landed.
If you are a diver this is a perfect location. The dive operators and dive sites are minutes away. Becky and I enjoy snorkeling and the entry point for the MV Captain Keith Tibbetts is just 5 minutes away. Other entry points are scattered throughout the island. The coral on Cayman Brac is still pristine and various ocean critters are plentiful.
If you want a nice relaxing and quiet destination away from the crowds, Copper Turtle and Cayman Brac is definitely an option. Great sunrises and sunsets just outside your door on the beach or in the pool. Hopefully, we can make it back soon to stay at Copper Turtle.

Great pool, private setting, but house needs some TLC.
Some things we absolutely loved, a few we didn't. To be fair, we will mention both. Windows give an amazing view. We LOVED the screened porch, especially hammock. We spent a lot of time out there. We LOVED the pool! It was our favorite thing. The steps & sitting ledge are great. It was very clean. The owners were very easy to work with. Emails were answered promptly. They provide a lot of valuable info. The property managers were courteous & helpful. We are not divers, but snorkelers. We went with the idea of easily being able to snorkel. The wind was very strong, but no one can control that. We were told it was unusually windy. There were a lot of days, it was impossible to go snorkeling due to that. Even on calmer days, we found it impossible to get in the water at our beach. The beach is all rocks, and after getting into the water, there is a lot of jagged, sharp rock, and many sea urchins. So between all that, my husband only went in twice, and the second time cut his leg. We did manage to find a few other spots that were easier for getting in/out, but overall, most of the beaches are all rocks. That being said, we should've done our homework better for a suitable location for our needs. There were a few things in the house that we didn't like. The stove & surrounding counter were not clean. Other rooms were though. Even though owners warn about ants, & we kept everything sealed & clean, we still got them in the kitchen trash bad one time, & they came here & there throughout the rest of our stay. That bothered us. We met another VRBO owner that said they had the same problem, but once they started having a service do regular spraying, it was no longer a problem, so possibly the owners could look at. The French doors adjacent to screen porch were in very bad shape. We used only one the whole time we were there, but, it made a lot of noise, and stuck every time, which made it inconvenient. A lot of the other ones we couldn't even open, including the master suite. We wanted to open them & get breezes coming through, & were not able to do that, so it was disappointing. About a week into our stay, the master bath septic backed up into the shower drain, & we were unable to use that bathroom until it got fixed. Fortunately, we were able to use the other bathroom. We were told, & understand that the septic system there is delicate, but maybe something else needs to be done to fix it better. Overall, we had a wonderfully relaxing vacation.
Thank you for your feedback . You made a good point about 'stubborn' french doors, we got used to them, but it doesn't need to be this way. We just got them fixed, can open with one finger now! And we learned that the roots can get into the pipes and cause the septic system problems, now we know what to do to keep them out. We are still learning the nuances of the island life!
Wonderful place on a wonderful island!
I honestly can’t say enough about this vacation property on the Brac. Firstly, I need to say that Natalia was so easy to deal with and helped out in every way that she could. The house is very comfortable, has everything needed for a stay in paradise and spacious. The property has quite a few trees which give much needed shade and this makes it possible to be outside at any time of the day, evening or night. Just outside the screened in porch (wonderful in itself) is the pool...an amazing addition to this property and a great place to spend lazy afternoons. We also appreciated the Dive Shed with its rinse tanks and sturdy hangers for drying gear out of direct sunlight. This property is in a wonderful location for many reasons...north side of the island which seems cooler, close to many great dive sites, snorkeling sites, markets, airport, restaurants...and yet feels very quiet and isolated. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer, soap, etc. We never used the dryer as there are great drying lines on the west side of the house to hang laundry, wet towels and swim suits. Loved this! We had a wonderful stay at the Copper Turtle and would more than happily come back. Wonderful place on a wonderful island!!
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much! Yes, Brac and the North shore is a very special, rustic and welcoming place. Great for divers and just about anyone who wants to take a break from civilization. Hope to have you as our guests in the future again.
