George Town

Area Snapshot

George Town is probably one of the prettiest capitals in the world, with stunning ocean views along its south coast that is dotted with sandy coves and areas of dramatic ironshore. At its heart is the bustling centre of business for the Cayman Islands, but it still manages to retain a relaxed family-friendly vibe in among its many quiet neighbourhoods.

In Brief

  • Central business district
  • Plenty of lovely residential neighbourhoods
  • Superb stretch of coast

Overview

George Town, Grand Cayman

As the capital of the Cayman Islands, George Town is the most populous of the islands’ districts. Here you will find the seat of Government, along with many businesses, shops, bars, cafés, restaurants, salons and many of Grand Cayman’s schools. But move out slightly further from the busy central port area and you will discover some truly special homes and neighbourhoods that benefit from proximity to the centre of business while still maintaining a peaceful charm all of their own.

Magnificent mansions gracefully hug the southern coastline going out east from central George Town, while fantastic condominiums such as L’Ambience are nestled beautifully among its residential neighbourhoods, with amenities such as schools close by. The bus depot is located just by George Town’s Library, a central spot from which to explore the entire island by bus. George Town has huge historic and cultural significance for the islands and is fascinating to explore on foot, with the Cayman Islands National Museum a good starting point.

It is also a shopping heaven, with jewellery, watches, cosmetics and perfumes all sold at duty free prices. As a result, there is an excellent supply of world class stores that have a brilliant range of all the most luxurious brands available, such as Rolex, Cartier, Mikimoto, Chanel, Mac and lots more. It’s also brimming with a wide selection of restaurants. You can sit out on the glorious deck at the Lobster Pot and watch the sun merge into the sea while dining on succulent seafood, or be entertained by the lively bunch at Casanova by the Sea. Indulge in a sweet treat at Cayman Creperie or some fantastic cocktails at Sunset House (really and truly the best place in town for sunset viewing.)

Raffaele helped me find a great property at a good price. The market was challenging at the time; new listings were being snapped up very quickly, but he managed to find a property before it was uploaded onto the Multiple Listing System (MLS) and with a lot of help from Raffaele we closed the deal within 12 days, he was simply amazing. Always very ...

My partner and I have now been living on beautiful Grand Cayman for just over two years and we could not be happier; largely due to the exceptional and supportive service from Sotheby’s International. Basia, our personal Sotheby’s agent, very quickly understood our needs and showed us properties that matched them perfectly.
A. and J.

We relocated to the Cayman Islands two years ago and have relied on Basia for all our real estate needs. Basia is always very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend Basia and the Sothebys team.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Brittainy Slade with Cayman Islands Sotheby’s International Realty.

Being an overseas vendor, I was lucky to have Gianpierre assist with the sale of my property. He was able to find a buyer at double the price I had originally been offered and we sold it within 3 weeks of listing! We’ve been working together on multiple projects since then.

At the end of last year I had Karina from Sotheby’s sell my condo and she did a great job. She got it sold for me and then I called her a couple months later saying I needed to buy another place! We bought a house and I’m really excited because she found it for me and I was always on her constantly, but ...

I have bought and sold with Karina over the past 6 years. I must say in every experience Karina has not only been reliable and direct. Karina has got me the best price and gone above and beyond my already high expectations of a realtor. I will recommend and continue having Karina as my realtor on Grand Cayman. She is very well experienced and ...

Kate has been phenomenal from start to finish and beyond, helping us find the perfect property and going the extra mile both during and after our purchase. Having purchased virtually off-Island during the pandemic, Kate made another wise stressful process straightforward, is always super responsive and acted as our eyes and ears on-Island with frequent video calls.
J. B-W.

We are all smiles. Kate, we want to say thank you. With a small budget and a growingly expensive market you were able to find us a property that fit our needs after such long and wild drives and viewings.

Working with Nikki was a great experience. I actually bought my house from her, flipped it and resold it through her. She made the process easy to understand both times. She also got things done quickly and efficiently.
R.M
Buyer & Seller
I cannot say enough about the expert work that Nikki Broadhurst did on the sale of my property. It is highly unusual, in this time, to find someone who really cares how the outcome of a sale turns out. I would recommend her to anyone doing real estate business in Cayman and will definitely use her again. thanks again.

Nikki was not only a consummate professional, but her warm and affable manner made the whole process of seeking accommodation in Grand Cayman a pleasurable and frictionless experience. Nikki made herself available at all hours (we were based in Europe and the US), and she adapted to our particular circumstances (FaceTime calls and a dedicated WhatsApp group) Furthermore, her diligence, local knowledge and instinct ...

My husband and I recently purchased a second condo in Cayman to accommodate our growing family. Cathy MacLean was our realtor and we can not express strongly enough what an excellent job she did and what wonderful service we received before and after the sale.

My husband and I have purchased 3 properties (over the last 7 years) including our dream home recently, through Sotheby’s agent Patty Nugent. Each of these experiences were so seamless and easy because of Patty’s very comprehensive knowledge and her amazing marketing skills. I hope Sotheby’s realizes the gem they have in this agent. For any future investment purchases (since she has already helped ...

I was very satisfied buying through Jono at Sotheby’s. I did not feel as if I was being pushed into buying a specific property, but truly perceived his desire to help find the right place for my family.

After visiting friends on Grand Cayman for a few years, we decided it was time to purchase a home. Heather Carrigan was referred to us and she has been a great fit! She is friendly, knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. Over a few visits, she took the time to show us a variety of homes as we were not certain whether we ...

Product Knowledge and Patience are the two biggest attributes I look for in a realtor on Grand Cayman. Most buyers are buying for the first time in a foreign country and the same goes for most sellers. I have found Patty to be a quick study of her clients and to align her interests with theirs to assure both are moving in the same ...

Patty Nugent has been a blessing for us. She listened to our wishes and needs and understood them completely. She then set forth to full fill them. She found a lovely home in the exact area I wanted and also 2 undeveloped lots…all beachfront. It was an absolute pleasure to work with such an honest and trustworthy agent.  We are now in the process ...

In the last 5 years we have worked with Jonathan Sparrow at Cayman Islands Sotheby’s Realty in Grand Cayman to sell two Seven Mile Beach condo units. Both of these units were priced to market and we had multiple offers in excess of the listing price within four days of listing. The whole process from listing through closing went smoothly due to Jonathan’s professional ...
