The Cayman Islands are a tri-island archipelago consisting of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. Daily direct flights from Owen Roberts International Airport link the islands to major North American gateways including New York, Toronto, Atlanta, Tampa, Charlotte and Chicago, and Miami is only a short 90-minute flight away. There is also a weekly flight from London via a quick tarmac stop in Nassau.

The largest island Grand Cayman isn’t just a wonderful place to visit but a great place to make your permanent home. So much so that many visitors eventually find themselves living on Grand Cayman – lured back by year-round sun, sea, sand and the genuine warmth of its people, known as CaymanKind.

Purchasing Property in Grand Cayman

Buying real estate in Grand Cayman is an easy and straightforward process, encouraged and facilitated by the Cayman Islands Government which guarantees title for residential real estate transactions. There are no annual property taxes or capital gains tax on the purchase of property, although buyers pay a one-time Stamp Tax of 7.5% on the purchase price of real estate or the market value of the property, whichever is higher.

With no restrictions on foreign real estate ownership, it is easy to purchase your own piece of paradise.

Living on Grand Cayman gives you access to more than just beaches. As one of the world’s largest financial centers, the Cayman Islands boasts a stable government, modern infrastructure, robust economy, and education system.

With one of the Caribbean region’s most reliable telecommunications and internet services, it’s easy and convenient to keep in touch with family, friends, and colleagues worldwide.

In addition, world-class healthcare at Health City Cayman Islands and a number of private specialty and GP clinics have made Grand Cayman a destination for medical tourism.

With a multitude of recreational activities, award-winning restaurants and water sports aplenty, buying property in Grand Cayman offers a world of benefits for you and your family. Whatever your lifestyle, you’ll be happy living on Grand Cayman. Let us show you exactly why you belong here.
