Full description:

Introduction The enchanting Cayman Islands lie just 480 miles south of Miami. Grand Cayman is by far the largest of the three islands and supports almost the entire population. The Cayman Islands are a British overseas territory and attract a large number of ex-patriots who both live and work on Grand Cayman. As the fifth largest finance centre in the world, the economy thrives as a centre for offshore finance as well as a booming tourist industry. Caymanians enjoy a zero tax environment and the highest standard of living in the entire Caribbean, supported by a strong and stable economic, political and social structure. Travel to Cayman is even easier than before with ten airlines including British Airways flying direct from UK and nine US gateway cities, including Miami, which is only an hour away. The Sister Islands, Jamaica and Cuba are also easily accessed from Grand Cayman. 

South Sound South Sound is one of Grand Cayman´s most desirable and established communities, due to its proximity to George Town and the schools district, and consists of large family homes and some new townhouse developments. South Sound is also renowned for its soft sandy reef protected beaches that stretch along the Southern coast and boasts a number of landmarks such as Smith Cove, Grand Old House and Sand Cay. It offers a host of amenities such as the South Sound Squash Club, Cayman Island Tennis and Rugby clubs and the Equestrian Centre in addition to a wide choice of shops, bars and restaurants nearby.

About Us

Simon Murphy was born in Birmingham and was educated at Aiglon College, Switzerland and Cheltenham College. On leaving Cheltenham, Simon returned to Birmingham where he obtained a Diploma in Estate Management. Simon then obtained his first position in Birmingham with King & Co. (now King Sturge) where he qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in December 1983.
