Comprising four islands (I, II, III, IV) in gorgeous Biscayne Bay, off the southwestern shores of Miami Beach, and north of Venetian Islands, you can discover an exclusive home to fulfill your highest dreams: The Sunset Islands. Only a few members of the elite enjoy the paradise these pieces of land have to offer.

The community is positioned between Biscayne Bay and North Bay Road, between the prominent Sunset Harbour neighborhood and the Julia Tuttle Causeway. Sunset Islands III and IV are connected to the stunning Sunset Harbour neighborhood and each other by two small bridges, while the Sunset Islands I and II are linked each other and to Miami Beach by two small bridges with the streets displaying aligned majestic mature royal palm trees in both sides of the road.

Composed of predominantly single-family estates featuring both waterfront as well as dry lots, sizes here are expansive. Privacy and security are the main factors why people enjoy living here. The access to this community is protected by two surveillance posts that operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with security patrols safeguarding the lives and property of homeowners.

If you take a tour you can see the Contemporary style that predominates in the architecture of the place presenting an exquisite design mix as some homes display Key West Style, Mediterranean, Mimo (Miami Modern), Modern, and Art Deco styles, all boasting lavish and sophisticated amenities. Its name is definitely not a coincidence.

Residents are delighted by the impressive sunsets of the Biscayne Bay accompanied by the majestic Miami city skyline. This is one of the reasons why in the 1920s, visionary Carl Fisher was determined to develop a winter destination for the wealthy tourist offering comfort, pleasure, and privilege at its best in these four wonderful islands.

The Sunset Islands are strategically positioned, close to the hotspots of Miami Beach, and South Florida. Top boutique shops, outdoor cafes and bistros, the finest and award-winning restaurants, the Design and Art districts, easy access to Downtown Miami, Brickell, the bohemian Coconut Groove, the Aventura Mall, the Port of Miami, and the Miami International Airport.

For the water enthusiasts, living in the Sunset Islands is a dream come true. Direct access to the water and the Atlantic Ocean set the environment and the mood to climb aboard your yacht or your jet ski and cruise all over. No matter what time of the year it is, there’s always fun available for those who can afford it.

Life at Sunset Island is a tropical paradise, perfect to have a quiet and delightful experience for you and your family. Maybe you are wondering: if there are so much beauty and comfort here, which celebrities have lived on the exclusive Sunset Islands?
