Ravello is a hidden treasure in Salt Creek in the Seven Mile Beach corridor, known to be one of Grand Cayman’s most exclusive and luxurious gated neighbourhoods. This home is named after the town of Ravello, often called the hidden treasure of the Amalfi Coast. The perfect family home, this villa features an impressive seven bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, along with two loft-style rooms located above the garages.
The influence of Italian design and tradition is prevalent in this residence. From the marble floors to the stunning mosaics, each part of this villa has been thoughtfully designed. Using vibrant colours in keeping with Amalfi Coast traditions, this home perfectly pairs the vision of an Italian-style home in a Caribbean setting. In true Italian fashion, potted lemon plants can be found at every corner, only a small highlight of an impeccably kept garden surrounded by lush landscaping.
The first of two kitchens, the interior kitchen is sleek and modern with a thoughtful mix of traditional touches. An outdoor area, perfect for entertaining, features a second kitchen, fully equipped with an authentic wood-fire pizza oven, able to cook a pizza in two minutes. The outdoor area is complemented by an infinity pool, mirroring the colour of the canal it overlooks. Enjoy a seamless view from the family-style outdoor dining area, where the outdoors can be brought in with sliding doors in the living area.
Built with the highest standards in mind, both for quality and safety, this home features the latest in technology. The atmosphere of each room can be controlled via a fixed panel or remotely by phone. Additionally, this villa features two detached air-conditioned garages, each able to accommodate two cars, along with staff accommodation.
Hand-forged metal gates and bold coral stone gateposts announce the entranceway to Salt Creek. A water lover’s dream, Salt Creek is easily accessible from Rum Point and Stingray City, and also centrally located to Seven Mile Beach. The neighbourhood features communal amenities, such as walking trails, a playground, and cabana areas.
