About William Nelms
I am Dr. William Nelms, a retired physician. My wife and I live on Cayman Brac. In1997 my wife and I and my daughter, Kathy, and son-in-law, Dennis Rose, purchased land on the island and built a vacation home. Turtles occasionally came up on the beach and Cayman was very interested in protecting and cultivating turtles so we decided on the name Turtle Crossing for the house. We had been coming to Grand Cayman and, later, Cayman Brac for many years for diving and relaxation and we fell in love with the Brac, as I think you will if you decide to visit.. When I retired several years later my wife and I decided to build a permanent home adjacent to TC. We moved in and have been very happy for a little over fifteen years. During that time we did vacation rentals for about three years but then decided to use the house just for guests and family; however as you can see we are returning it to the rental market. We have a fondness for TC and hope our visitors will enjoy it as much as we have over the years.
William Nelms purchased this Villa in 1997

On the money
Property was amazing. Location was perfect. Hosts were gracious. Turtle crossing is on the south side of island. You really feel like you are all alone there. You must have a car if you want to explore the island but of course it's all 10 minutes drive Max😀�
The pool was very nice, even though it's next door it is very close and easy to get to. However the deck tile was extremely slippery when wet, so being deck shoes.
Great vacation home
Location location location. The owners met us at the airport and we followed them to the house. It was wonderful. We were 3 adult couples on a dive vacation and this place was perfect for us. Great house with a pool, short drive to the dive shop and the owners gave us the local tips on groceries and restaurants. William and Alisa were great. Thank you so much for a wonderful week
Lovely Easter break with family
We enjoyed a lovely long weekend at Turtle Crossing with our 3 young children. After a short flight from our home in Grand Cayman, Bill and Ailsa were there to greet us at the airport and show us the way to the house, which was very helpful as we arrived at night. The house is very spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect, steps from the ocean with a view you could never get bored with.
Lovely, Relaxing, Perfect
For our sixth trip to Cayman Brac my friends and I stayed at Turtle Crossing. What a beautiful home very close to the water. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable and full of wonderful books. Dr. And Mrs. Nelms were very welcoming. We loved it and will be back next spring.
A relaxing getaway!
We had an excellent stay. The house was superb. It has the best views of the ocean, which is only steps out the back patio. It gets wonderful breezes so you can relax on the deck all day long. It is located near everything without losing your privacy. We snorkeled on this trip and there is a great rinsing station to rinse and hang your equipment. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay!
