A Caribbean resort became paradise lost for a New York family whose young daughter was nearly raped and killed by an ex-con working there.

The girl and her parents were vacationing at Covecastles, an array of private villas on a beach in Anguilla, when she was attacked last year, the family claims in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

On the second day of the 15-day, $15,000 trip, the girl went for walk on the beach to film part of movie she was making for school.

“On her way from the Villa down to the beach, suddenly and without warning, a gardener hired by the resort, attempted to viciously rape [her] in broad daylight,” the parents charge in court papers.

When the girl fought back, the gardener “repeatedly stabbed [her] throughout her body using a broken bottle with the aim of murdering her to silence the only witness to this attack,” the parents say.

The girl “had the amazing presence of mind to appear dead so that the stabbing would end,” the papers say.

The parents came across the girl’s seemingly “lifeless body” and rushed her to a hospital with a fractured skull and punctured lung.

She was later airlifted to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center in Washington Heights.

The girl is identified only as “C.G.” in court papers. The gardener, who was arrested, is not identified.

The family is suing the resort and its designer, Myron Goldfinger, and his wife, June, claiming the couple managed the resort and slashed security due to financial mismanagement.

Myron Goldfinger is a Westchester architect who designs high-end homes in the Hamptons, including one used in the film “The Wolf of Wall Street.” He designed Covecastles in the 1980s.

The Goldfingers, both 83, misappropriated funds, failed to maintain the property and vet employees and incurred “a great deal of debt,” the family claims in court papers demanding unspecified damages.

The couple cut security staff from three full-time guards to one part-timer, and the gardener was not screened despite a criminal past, the family says.

The attack was the second security breach at Covecastles in two weeks, the family claims, without detailing any other incidents.

Covecastles didn’t return messages. The Goldfingers’ lawyer said the couple was wrongly named in the suit and would be vindicated.
