Live like royalty in the Cayman Islands at Castillo Caribe estate

Castillo Caribe

When one dreams of the ultimate in island living, there are many obvious features that spring to mind as essential to completing the fantasy: ocean front location, amazing pool, brilliant recreational facilities, stunning interiors, space, freedom, and privacy. Imagine all this ramped up 100-fold and Castillo Caribe is your ‘Castle in the Caribbean’ for real. Much more than a single house, Castillo Caribe is an entire resort, right on the water and ready for someone to move into and to love.

Celebrity lifestyle

To live here is to truly experience a celebrity lifestyle, the location, easy living and five-star amenities. In fact, Cayman’s own celebrity Courtney McTaggart (starring in the new Hulu reality TV series, Grand Cayman: Secrets in Paradise) is featured in our brand new video of this outstanding home.

“Imagine the most idyllic home possible and that is Castillo Caribe,” Courtney says. “It would be a dream come true to live here. Filming at Castillo was mind-blowing. I couldn’t imagine a property of its size feeling the way it did. It felt like home, one I’d never have to leave. It is literally, magical.”

As luxury property in the Caribbean goes, it does not really get any better than at Castillo Caribe. Courted by the world’s affluent and famous (it is said singer Justin Bieber was considering the property!), Castillo Caribe truly is the ultimate in island living, all 48,000 square feet of incredible resort-style living.

Incredible beachfront estate

Set over 1.38 acres, the incredible Castillo Caribe estate is a place you, quite frankly, will never want to leave. Perfectly set up for a family, those who love to entertain, and people working from home, Castillo Caribe encompasses eight bedrooms (which include master suites, children’s suites, and a staff suite), and 14 bathrooms that sport Kohler and Hansgrohe fixtures. There is a kitchen to rival the best that money can buy decked with appliances that would make Gordon Ramsay envious, a Moroccan-themed bar for fantastic entertaining, his and hers studies which are thoughtfully designed, a wine cellar that can house 400 bottles, a magnificent dining room that comfortably seats 14 with views across the Caribbean Sea, and a Great Room that takes elegance to new heights (literally) with two sweeping staircases and chandeliers to rival British stately homes. Gaze upwards and appreciate the stunning, custom-made dramatic woven ceiling that rounds off this magnificent interior.

Fantasy Caribbean living continues with its very own magical grotto, well-equipped spa, complete with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis court and Pickle ball court nestled right on the beach, all in one of the loveliest parts of Grand Cayman, in beautiful South Sound. Outdoor living is obviously a huge focus given this stunning location and is set against 250 feet of the most beautiful beach front, and encompasses a private beach area with cabana, mature gardens, fruit trees and sculptures. Wander through this enchanted location and you, too, will get lost in the romance, beauty, and luxury of this grand estate.

Built into this fantasy luxury property are state-of-the-art systems to ensure privacy, safety, and convenience. A Crestron system controls lighting scenes, audio, video, AC, the pool, and spa, as well as security, drapery, gates and house entry, and the system can easily be accessed remotely over the internet. This means owners can check the property at any time, maintain an ambient temperature, and ensure appliances are off while on vacation. In addition, a 1.3TB RAID server holds all stored multimedia as well as backing up networked PCs. Multimedia can easily be played back on any TV. Importantly, the owner has installed ultra high-technology, including solar, to lower the cost of powering the home, thereby making a huge reduction in electricity costs that rival homes on island at less than half their size. A feat in and among itself.

With its ground floor sitting at more than 14 feet above sea level, Castillo Caribe has been built to meet stringent standards in building code. A generator that can fully power the whole house comes on within 10 seconds of a power failure and it can even be run, if necessary, during storms by switching air intake from exterior to interior. There is also a 9-foot disguised sea wall which protects the property, tennis and Pickle ball courts and sea wall.

While the above is undoubtedly appealing in its own right, locating to the Cayman Islands makes sense for so many reasons. As a tax neutral jurisdiction, we do not require our residents to pay any tax of any kind, so no income, inheritance, capital gains or property taxes, which means investing in a Cayman Islands property makes sound financial sense. We are a British Overseas Territory with a stable local government giving peace of mind for anyone wishing to invest in this exquisite of locations. Purchasing a home here, whether that means relocating permanently (and why wouldn’t you?!), or possibly enjoying your Cayman Islands luxury property as a second or third home, means you will always have this incredible location as a safe and secure bolthole away from the pressures of the rest of the world. If you choose to invest in a luxury property as wonderful and special as Castillo Caribe, you have the added pleasure of owning one of the most prestigious, comfortable, luxurious, and most highly sought-after properties that have ever been built here.

Welcome to your fantasy!
