About Grand Cayman Villas

Grand Cayman Villas & Condos, LLC, is the exclusive booking and marketing agent representing property managers and homeowners for over 90 oceanfront villas on Grand Cayman.  We also manage the websites, marketing and reservations for a number of private condominium complexes.  We only represent properties that we have personally visited and are 100% committed to making your Grand Cayman experience the best it can be.

We are Cayman homeowners ourselves with deep knowledge of the island’s best neighborhoods, restaurants, vendors and local attractions.  We belong to the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) and maintain strong relationships with our partners who also belong to the Cayman Island Department of Tourism.

We own & staff a private Guest Services Office, Cardio/Yoga & Welcome center on Frank Sound Road in the middle of the island, within 15 minutes of  90% of our managed villas.  This location ensures that 90% of our guests will pass by our Silver Thatch Plaza.  To learn more, please visit: www.silverthatchcayman.com

Our Properties

All of our properties are inspected and licensed by the Cayman government.  We visit the island every 4-5 weeks to stay current on new home construction and resort developments, plus dining and water sports opportunities for our guests.  We feel it is important to be aware of any pending nearby construction and offer select discounts to offset any inconvenience.  Feel free to ask us any awkward questions about the homes or neighborhoods and we will provide our candid insights.

If you own a property on Grand Cayman and would like to discuss representation, please contact Jim Leavitt via email.  We will either email, or send you an introduction with our business model as well as provide options for renting your villa yourself.
