Castillo Caribe0

No, the picture above is not that of a hotel lobby.  It is the living room of this:

Allow me to introduce you to the one of the most expensive properties offered in 2010—for a whopping $59,500,000. Yeah, you read that right.  That’s just shy of 60 million bucks, a figure so staggering that I think part of my brain just stroked out.  That’s James Bond super-villain kind of money.  For sale by Sotheby’s International Realty  this property in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands even has a name: Castillo Caribe.

It stands to reason that if you have that kind of cash, you should get your money’s worth—and this home offers that in spades.  With an interior of 48,000 square feet, there’s plenty of room to relax . . . or to plot the end of the world – take your pick.  The amenities are almost never-ending, and include:

  • 4 Car Garage
  • Outdoor Kitchen
  • Billiards Room
  • Granite Countertops
  • Staff Quarters
  • Hardwood Flooring
  • Steam Room
  • Security System
  • Exercise Room
  • Spa/Hot Tub
  • Tennis Court
  • In-Home Fitness Center
  • Terrace/Outdoor Space
  • Media Room/Home Theater
  • Wine Cellar/Grotto
  • Ocean Front
  •  Helipad

A helipad?!?!?  Really???!?!?  Isn’t that a bit much?  I suppose it’s standard issue if you’re a super-villain.  But I think it’s safe to say that overkill is the word of the day here.

Just check out the wine cellar/grotto:

I doubt I’d ever leave that room.  I want it, though I’m miserably shy of the $60 million.

Then there’s the bedroom:

I’m not sure I could sleep in a room large enough for a a pro football game, but this one does look kind’a cozy—in a stadium sort of way.

Part of the appeal to this place is the location.  Not only are the Cayman Islands gorgeous, but they also don’t levy any property tax.  What a bargain!  Just think of the taxes I’d have to pay in good ol’  Floriday.  .  .

Hang on – I think I’m having another stroke.
