Designed and built by Davenport Development – a company that has garnered an excellent reputation for its solid construction, affordable price point and superb community facilities – Vela is being developed in three phases. With Phase I now complete, the ground works and foundations are underway for Phase II.
The second phase of the gated residential community features a total of 56 units: 12 one-bedroom apartments, 8 one-bedroom townhomes, 10 two-bedroom townhomes, 14 three-bed townhomes and 12 four-bedroom townhomes.
Modern Caribbean in style, with sleek lines, flat roofs and ample outdoor space, all units are arranged around a lushly landscaped common area, the centrepiece of which is a stunning 50-metre pool, complete with swimming lanes, sun shelves and a children’s play area.
Designed for active, health conscious residents, aside from having the first Olympic-size pool in Cayman, the development features a tennis court, gym and yoga room, plus storage space for kayaks and paddleboards, ensuring fitness enthusiasts of every persuasion are catered to. A second tennis court and gym will be added in Phase III.
Additional facilities and amenities include a clubhouse and function room with a full kitchen for events, a full-time on-site property manager and a concierge service to take care of domestic chores when residents are short on time.
Inspired by Mediterranean living, each home includes a variety of outdoor spaces: all homes feature entry courtyards on one side and a covered terrace on the pool-facing side. In the townhouses there is an additional covered terrace off the master bedroom and flat roofs provide a bonus, breeze-cooled space that is perfect for entertaining.
Complementing the lifestyle made possible by these features is the peace of mind of knowing the construction is exceptionally strong and the homes economical to run. Walls are built with Insulated Concrete Forms, roofs are concrete and windows are made from reflective, impact resistant glass, all of which keep cooling costs down and ensure the structure is hurricane-proof. Air conditioning units from Otis Air are energy efficient, whilst ovens and stove tops from A.L. Thompson's, as well as the water heaters and washer dryers are propane-fuelled, further reducing electrical costs; residents also have the option of installing solar panels on their roof terraces.
Buyers who reserve early may customise a number of features and finishes, and can even alter room layout if requested early enough in the construction process. For those seeking a totally turnkey solution, affordable modern furniture packages are available from Dwell by IDG.
With resort-style amenities, high quality construction, a secure entry system and designed-in energy efficiency, Vela embodies Davenport Development’s commitment to delivering outstanding value together with an enviable lifestyle.
