Castillo Caribe

A

home for every lifestyle


T he Cayman Islands

Lifestyle, luxury, location and limited tax liability. Without doubt Castillo Caribe is one of the finest beachfront estate homes in the world offering every luxury for modern day life with all the lifestyle options one would expect from the Cayman Islands. Although the Cayman Islands enjoy year round sunshine and a temperate climate, this benefit is eclipsed in most people’s eyes by the Islands’ offshore status. The Cayman Islands are well known as a major financial center on the world’s stage and provide the highest quality of lifestyle available in a tax neutral environment, making it very appealing to people of high net worth to seek residency here - a position which is actively encouraged by the local government and, as a British Overseas Territory, is a very stable option. There are a number of destinations in the world that are able to offer offshore status to a greater or lesser degree but the Cayman Islands have no local taxes whatsoever: no property tax, no income tax, no capital gains tax and no inheritance tax. Castillo Caribe offers a rare opportunity to combine this with privacy, security, luxury and lifestyle all on a pristine white sandy beach overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.


T he Cayman Islands

The peaceful British Overseas Territory of the Cayman Islands lies nestled in the calm, turquoise waters of the western Caribbean. Consisting of three islands just 480 miles south of Miami, the Cayman Islands have the highest standard of living in the Caribbean
