With a name that means "sanctuary" in Greek, it's fitting that the property resembles a Mediterranean hilltop village: picture white-stucco arches and airy ceilings. The 62 one-, two-, and three-bedroom Oceanfront Residences, 10 four-bedroom Tenemos Villas, and 18 five-bedroom Estate homes ranging from 4,779 to 5,381 square feet, border the island's first 7,100-yard golf course. All are full-ownership. The latest newcomer? Thirty-seven 3-bedroom Sky Villas, built around individual courtyards with pools.
