Luxury Living: Caribbean homes

From Barbados to St. Barths, five sumptuous properties with perfect beaches and azure waters virtually on the doorstep — all from Christie’s International Real Estate

This splendid canal-front home with a private 60-foot boat dock is in one of Grand Cayman’s most distinguished neighborhoods. Built in 2018, the 10,500-square-foot, two-storey residence features six bedrooms and five full bathrooms, including a master retreat with his-and-her walk-in closets and spa bathroom with soaking tub, an office, gym, and home theatre. The interiors open to landscaped grounds including a Zen-inspired garden, dining patio, outdoor kitchen with bar, and mosaic-tiled infinity pool with hot tub and cabana.

One of the most exclusive beachfront properties in the Caribbean, Cerulean Villa is set amid tranquil landscaped gardens on a secluded stretch of beach in West End, Anguilla. The villa has been decorated by renowned interior designer Scott Salvator,  and everything possible has been considered for the comfort and entertainment of residents and guests. There are nine bedrooms and three staff rooms, a recreation room, tennis court, putting green, gym, and spa room.

La Grande Maison (also pictured top) overlooks the Caribbean Sea and the islands of Saba and Statia from its tropical perch in the Colombier hills. The estate comprises a main five-bedroom villa, a two-bedroom cottage, a staff house, and 8,000 square metres of tropical gardens. The property has three pools: one at the main terrace with loungers, the BBQ area and the pool bar, one attached to the guest cottage, and the third on the private terrace of the master suite.
