GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, April 28, 2015 /reallife — The clean lines and cool white tones of Luxury Cayman Villas’ newest rental property, Tranquility Cove, create a serene oasis where guests can disconnect from the fast pace of modern life and reconnect with friends and family in an idyllic oceanfront location.

Set back from the road on a rarely visited stretch of beachfront on Grand Cayman’s southern shore, the gated two and a half acre estate offers uninterrupted ocean views and unparalleled privacy for groups of up to 16 guests. The location means that all of the island’s main attractions are within an easy 30-minute drive, and a concierge service is available to book excursions and make restaurant reservations.

Luxury Cayman Villas director, Molly Thomas, personally redesigned and renovated the property in 2014, transforming it into the ultimate modern luxury villa.

Outdoor spaces were reconfigured completely, with a gleaming white marble deck and a shimmering turquoise spill-over-pool whilst indoors, common spaces were opened up so that the expansive chef’s kitchen, dining and living areas merge seamlessly into one another and embrace the endless vistas.

With six bedrooms, including a bunkroom that sleeps six youngsters and a small child’s bedroom adjacent to one of the master bedrooms, it’s the ideal place for large families to gather. Thoughtful details such as child-sized furniture, a small playground, recreation room and a TV and Xbox One gaming system ensure younger members of the family will never be short of amusements.

The elegance of the design however, means the property is equally appealing to groups of friends. The white-dominated colour palette outdoors is immensely soothing and conducive to relaxation, while the carefully selected items of designer furniture, luxury linens and free-standing soaking tub in the master bedroom immerse adults in a world of pleasure.

With a fully-equipped, top-of-the-line kitchen, complemented by an outdoor kitchen and a choice of dining areas both indoors and out, it is ideally suited to entertaining – for those less inclined to spend precious vacation time preparing meals, a private chef can be easily arranged.

The exquisite infinity-edge pool, with a hot tub at its centre, flanked by submerged sun loungers and fitted with built-in ice buckets is bound to be the focus of social activity. However, clusters of seating in the living room along with two shady gazebos, a hammock strung between the palm trees and 365 feet of beachfront mean there is ample space for friends and family to spread out and enjoy moments of quiet reflection, if desired.

The design and views certainly encourage outdoor living, but that does not mean the villa lacks anything in the way of hi-tech gadgetry: there is fast WiFi and VoIP phones for those that need to stay connected, whilst pre-loaded Apple TV and a state-of-the-art sound system enable gatherings at Tranquility Cove can be as high octane or as low key as each group desires.

Tranquility Cove’s 5,000 square feet of modern luxury offer all the style and sophistication of a boutique hotel, but the thought that has gone into ensuring every detail is both aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time, ensure this is a luxury getaway where everybody from toddlers to grandparents can enjoy a unique island getaway in absolute comfort.
