OLEA, Cayman Islands
Live at Camana Bay. Designed around a beautifully landscaped park and resort-style pool, connected by tree-shaded footpaths and a waterfront boardwalk that leads to the Town Centre, OLEA embodies the values of healthy living, walkability, sustainability and connectivity on which Camana Bay was founded.
Words by Natasha Were.
Situated to the south of the Town Centre, adjacent to Cayman International School and close to the Camana Bay Sports Complex, the location could not be more convenient. Getting to work, to class or to the beach are all possible on foot and all the entertainment, dining and retail options of the Town Centre are a stone’s throw away.
The consummately-designed communal spaces encourage active, outdoor living. At OLEA you can practice sun salutations outdoors in the early morning before walking the kids to school or lift weights in the gym while the little ones let off steam in the playground; in the evenings, get together with neighbours and friends in the barbecue area to grill some fresh fish – perfectly seasoned with fresh flavours from the herb garden – and at weekends, enjoy slow days floating down the lazy river, cooling off in the pool and picnicking in the shady gardens.
Beautiful landscaping and artfully conceived public spaces are perfectly balanced by a collection of prestigious private homes. Designed by TRIO Architecture, OLEA’s coastal design is in perfect harmony with the Town Centre and is thoughtfully configured to frame the views and channel the breezes for natural cooling.
Built by NCB Group and Dart Real Estate, OLEA incorporates numerous environmental, energy saving features including ICF construction for unparalleled strength and insulation, solar panels, geo-thermal cooling systems, Energy Star-rated appliances and LED lighting to keep utility costs down, whilst Water Sense plumbing and drought tolerant landscaping will reduce water usage.
Conceived to appeal to a variety of demographics and budgets, the development includes condos, townhomes and duplexes, all with open-concept kitchen, living and dining spaces.
Overlooking OLEA’s verdant green gardens are the one- two- and three-bedroom condos which make efficient use of space and all feature private terraces.
At the heart of the development are the townhomes, where three-bedroom units include double carports, private gardens and storage rooms, and four bedroom layouts also boast a media room and three terraces with the top-floor terrace offering exceptional views towards the North Sound. Some units feature a private pool.
The duplexes stretch along the canal front, offering wide open views, soothing breezes and private gardens fronting the waterway. These spacious residences include garages, trellised carports and all en suite bathrooms. The four-bedroom duplexes feature a spacious private garden with a pool and graciously designed living spaces creating the ultimate home and waterfront sanctuary.
Interiors will be fresh and light-filled, with matte millwork and stunning quartz countertops, wood-look porcelain floors and Kohler bathroom fixtures. Exteriors feature accents in natural materials that embody a coastal contemporary feel while infusing Caribbean architecture and style.
OLEA broke ground in early 2019 and Phase One is due for completion by August 2020. Prices start at US$625,000 and reservations require a refundable US$25,000 deposit.
