Every residence is large and superbly designed, each bearing unique features, amenities, and architectural styles. All properties have expansive lots that allow for both privacy and the opportunity to enjoy the year-round warm weather.

The following homes, all located on Star Island Drive, are some of the most exemplary properties available.
Hibiscus Island and Palm Island
The Hibiscus and Palm Islands are located near Star Island and lie directly adjacent to each other. Like Star Island, they’re known worldwide for their exclusivity and luxury, with a varied selection of magnificent mansions.

The homes in Hibiscus and Palm Island represent the most cutting edge and majestic designs in architecture. Just about every style is represented, ranging from Art Deco and Miami Modernism to Mediterranean and Italian Villa. Some properties date from the 1930s, while others were built only a few years ago. Indeed, no two homes are exactly alike, with each offering their own array of unique and custom features. This unique selection of exotic-looking properties also creates a beautiful and serene atmosphere that few communities can rival. Adding to this exquisite aesthetic are large and well-manicured lots that surround each property, providing an environment ideal for relaxing and hosting events.
Furthermore, it’s worth noting that all three of these islands are located between Downtown Miami and Miami Beach, meaning you’ll be in close proximity to some of the finest dinning, entertainment, and shopping in the world.
