Neighbourhood

George Town is the capital city of Cayman and at the heart of the financial services industry. Not just a warm climate but a warm welcome; George Town is home to the island’s port, with a waterfront filled with bustling tourists visiting the duty-free shops. At the figurative centre of Cayman, sits the literal centre of George Town’s residential population — a favourite among locals for its close proximity to town, grocery shopping, local schools, Owen Roberts Airport, snorkelling, diving and classic island restaurants.

Heading East from George Town, you will find the coveted South Sound. The second most sought after area on Grand Cayman to live after Seven Mile Beach (but second to none in lifestyle), this area is more relaxed than Seven Mile with a lovely mix of condos and mid to large family homes. Hugging the waterline, you’ll find luxurious beachfront villas; the perfect location for your towel to meet the sand for a few hours a day.

A home of capital in the capital.
