Casa Luna, Grand Cayman
Enveloped by lush foliage and connected by meandering paths, Casa Luna's 18 sumptuous villas offer both seclusion and the convenience of resort-style amenities.

An exclusive waterfront development of three- and four-bedroom homes, Casa Luna sits on a pristine stretch of coastline with its own white sand beach and four acres of undulating, verdant grounds. An infinity edge pool, ocean-side cabanas, clubhouse and private dock promise ample leisure possibilities but it is the Mediterranean-style architecture and enchanted-garden setting that make this South Sound community truly unique.
The developers took a novel approach when dreaming up Casa Luna. Contrary to the usual order of play, the landscaping design, complete with streams and bridges, ponds and sunken gardens, was implemented first. Only when this was flourishing, were the villas built. The result is a charming village-like setting, where homes sit comfortably in their surroundings.
The inspired design and quality of construction received recognition of the highest order when Casa Luna was given Highly Commended and 5-star awards in three categories at the prestigious International Property Awards in Barbados last fall.
An enviable choice for a second home, the developers strive to make ownership at Casa Luna a trouble-free proposition. Full property management and concierge services are standard and, to further simplify the prospect, Casa Luna has partnered with Houston-based Ladco Resort Design Group to create turnkey interior packages. Valued at $250K but included in the sale price, it’s an ideal solution for discerning buyers who want exquisite interiors but lack the time to personally create them. For those preferring to customise their own décor and furnishings an equivalent credit is provided, plus assistance from Ladco’s internationally renowned designers.
When not in use by owners, Casa Luna villas have the potential to become income-generating assets. Demand for rental properties of this calibre is high: the fact that four of the villas are leased to Inspirato, a private luxury residence club, attests to this. Buyers of these properties receive a guaranteed annual rental income (calculated according to personal usage desires), free membership to the club and property and utilities managed on their behalf. Rentals through certain other pre-approved Cayman Islands villa rental companies will also be permitted by the developer.
The location, on Grand Cayman’s southwest shore embraces the best of both worlds. From Casa Luna owners can walk to Smith Cove beach, amble to Grand Old House for romantic dining, or be picked up by boat from the dock, yet central George Town is five minutes drive away, and the bright lights of Seven Mile Beach are less than ten minutes away. If residents choose to stay home, however, whether they are relaxing on shady verandas, soaking in the hot tub or entertaining friends in the pavilion, they can do so in complete privacy.
