Video of the Week: Coastal Contemporary Villa on Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Islands
Featuring curated videos from the most sought-after destinations the world over, discover this week’s Video of the Week.
Villas of the Galleon sits on four hundred and fifty feet of what is arguably the best section of Seven Mile Beach. This is no trivial matter when discussing a beach that is regularly voted the best in the world.
Seven Mile Beach highlights what the Cayman Islands has to offer, not only because of its pristine white sands, but with its westerly outlook, it provides a ringside seat to unforgettable sunsets.
Built in 1980 the Villas of the Galleon is a beautiful example of the low-rise buildings of a bygone Cayman era where three stories was the allowed building height. Having a two story top unit such as offered at the Villas of the Galleon, which technically created a four-story building, would certainly have been viewed as pushing the boundary historically-speaking, but seems a far cry from the ten stories allowed on Seven Mile Beach now.
Recently renovated from top to bottom Villas of the Galleon #52 offers the best of both worlds providing what is essentially a brand new, modern apartment, in a low-rise, low-density complex and a two-story home that offers a distinct level of individuality. A penthouse corner unit, #52 Villas of the Galleon enjoys windows on three sides of the building, a vaulted ceiling, and an overall feeling of space and light; it holds what is probably the best position in the complex, and the view from the balcony is second to none.
