A quartet of islands, intersected by canals are numbered Sunset l, ll, lll  and  lV in a  location that puts them within walking distance of Alton Road, Lincoln Road and South .Beach. This quiet upscale oasis, featuring luxurious homes offering unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay and magnificent sunsets, is highly sought-after. A bridge from Miami Beach’s 29th Street accesses the northern islands while Sunset Drive from North Bay Road reaches the southern Sunset islands. The bridges connecting the four islands were declared historic in 1997.

Sunset Islands were originally rough mangrove hammock islands, with various names — Chequesha, Sandwich Gulf, Cape River and Dartmouth Sound. In 1925 the property was cut off from main Miami Beach by a newly-dug canal known as Sunset Lake, but further dredging built up and transformed the islands. In 1934 the Sunset Islands Company began building houses. Homes were marketed to Hollywood stars and high society people who brought a certain cachet.to Sunset Islands. As more luxury homes were built over the years, Sunset Islands maintained a discreet, low-key profile.

The houses on both waterfront and dry lots offer a pleasing mixture of architectural styles that include Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern as well as some Key West cottages. Less distinguished houses appeal to buyers as teardowns. Houses on Sunset l and ll generally sit on 20,000 square foot lots with 100 feet of waterfront. Sunset lll and lV lots are smaller but some have been combined for new build. Sunset islands are known for their community- neighbor-friendly atmosphere.
