    A shining enclave at the northern tip of Miami Beach, Bal Harbour Village appeals to the world’s most discerning travelers seeking the finest Miami resorts. The Village exudes impeccable, contemporary style with deluxe oceanfront hotels, resorts, residences, ultra-chic shopping and an enviable selection of dining options. The vision for this paradise began in 1929 when a Detroit-based real estate development corporation named Miami Beach Heights purchased 245 acres of undeveloped, partially swampy barrier land that stretched from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway. Plans for the development started in the 1930s to be put on hold in the 1940s due to World War II when the land was rented to the United States Air Corps for $1 per year to train their soldiers and for a prisoner of war camp. The Village of Bal Harbour was incorporated on August 14, 1946, to operate under the city manager form of government and development began in earnest. Then swampland was filled, sea walls were constructed and the yacht basin was created. Bal Harbour was the first planned community in Florida to have its utilities placed underground. In 1949, a bridge was started to connect Bal Harbour to Baker Haulover and the northern barrier islands. In 1957, a real estate developer purchased the 16 acres that was the camp for prisoners to build the open-air Bal Harbour Shops which opened in 1965 with 30 upscale, mostly New York-based tenants defining the village’s style and elegance. The last oceanfront undeveloped Beach Club site was sold for $220 million in order to make way for the ultra-luxury Oceana at Bal Harbour with occupancy in 2017. Bal Harbour Village has evolved into an internationally renowned destination.

    Exclusive Indian Creek Island offers the ultimate island lifestyle with restricted access to owners, club members or their registered guests only. Dubbed the “Billionaire Bunker” by Forbes, this 300 acre island had 41 residential home sites. Some custom homes have been built on multiple lots leaving 38 resident home sites around the central 18 hole championship golf course with exclusive club facilities. Magnificent estates of grand dimensions designed by renowned architects are a yachtsman and golfer’s paradise few can even dream of. These 1 to 4 acre properties are all waterfront for gorgeous views and private boat docks. The private guarded island is accessed via the gated bridge with 24 hour manned security plus it’s own police force by land and by sea to insure complete privacy and seclusion for the residents.

    The Town of Surfside is located along the beautiful Atlantic Ocean making it a tropical paradise community for permanent residents, seasonal retreat, family vacation or relaxing escape. Incorporated in 1935, Surfside began to grow after World War II with the plan that all the homes, apartments, condominiums, hotels and resorts in Surfside are within walking distance of world class shopping, fantastic public beaches and recreational facilities. The thing that makes Surfside most impressive is its strong and consistent commitment to the quality of life of its residents. Old and new houses are mixed together in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed neighborhood setting. The condominiums and hotels along the oceanfront on A1A are not permitted to exceed 12 stories in height. The Town of Surfside is situated between The City of Miami Beach to the south and the Village of Bal Harbour to the north and has earned a superb reputation as a family community and tropical paradise destination.
