About this property
Villa Maria is an exceptional beachfront estate overlooking the incredible waters of Pease Bay, Grand Cayman and offering some of the most mesmerizing Caribbean Sea views seen anywhere in the Cayman Islands. The estate comprises a primary three bedroom residence, 1 bed guest cottage, tennis court, swimming pool and boat dock all sitting on 7.43acres of land which is Zoned Hotel/Tourism and has around 900ft of coastline which is a mixture of sand and ironshore. From road to sea the site has a depth of around four hundred feet and offers a natural ridge with an elevation up to thirteen feet above sea level which is quite exceptional for an ocean front site in the Cayman Islands however of paramount importance to the value of this site is its Hotel/Tourism zoning. For sites zoned Hotel/Tourism the local code allows for the building of hotels with a density of sixty-five bedrooms per acre or for the building of apartments at twenty-five units per acre. An option that may be more in keeping with its surroundings would be to build a “Cottage Colony” and in this instance code allows ten units per acre if each unit has two bedrooms. Whether you are looking for a unique beachfront residence with plenty of privacy and elbow room or a site with incredible scope for future development and return Villa Maria is a truly unique real estate opportunity.

Don’t shop around — shop here. Savannah has become an increasingly popular area for families in recent years, especially after the completion of Countryside Shopping Village. Only a 20-minute drive from George Town and close to schools and shopping, this area not only has clothes, but properties of all sizes and varieties. Ocean side, you will find stunning homes perched on the iron shore overlooking the dramatic south facing views. Savannah is also home to Pedro’s Castle and the Agricultural Grounds. This general area is reasonably priced and appeals to young families and those looking for an affordable new-build option — this spot is sure to grow with its new residents as they do.
A short drive out of Savannah, you will come upon the sleepy seaside village of Bodden Town, known for its history as the Island’s first capital, a favourite amongst locals. Bringing a sense of adventure to paradise, Bodden Town features several guest houses for holidaymakers, pirate caves and a world-class restaurant with water deck dining. This quiet neighbourhood has many treasures to unpack; and is as rich in history as its pirate slinging past would have you believe.
