The Town of Bay Harbor Island is a growing and vibrant community of fine Miami homes. Bay Harbor Islands Real Estate and Bay Harbor Islands are divided into two distinctive areas known as, the west island and the east island. The Broad Causeway conveniently connects these two islands to the mainland and is located in Miami just south of Bal Harbour. The Islands of Bay Harbor were formally incorporated in 1947 and today are home to nearly 5000 people. All of the exclusive homes here have been designed with comfort, quality, and convenience in mind. With a large variety in originality, you’re sure to find the perfect setting for your South Florida dream home.
Made up of two separate islands, Bay Harbor Islands include the West Island, consisting of single-family homes (this exclusivity gives this community a slightly higher demand), and the East Island made up of luxury single- family homes and multi-family apartment buildings along with a business district of small shops, salons, banks, cafés, and several health professional offices. This small community of Bay Harbor Islands is one of the safest places to live and own a Miami home with its omnipresent police department providing much-sought tranquility to its residents. Bay Harbor homes and real estate are accented by large streets with freshly manicured and perfectly maintained landscaping. The island features ultra-luxurious Miami homes, most of which are seated on large waterfront lots that provide a very clean and airy atmosphere. Gradually small historic houses have disappeared to give life to new Miami mansions with owners like Ricky Martin, a one time resident of the island. Luxury estate homes on Bay Harbor Islands are available for sale and for rent.
Bay Harbor Islands are within walking distance from the famous town of Bal Harbor known for its world renowned Bal Harbour Shops, luxurious Bal Harbour oceanfront condominiums and its incredible beaches. Bay Harbor Islands are located just 10 minutes south of Sunny Isles Beach and Aventura and 5 minutes north of Miami Beach and 15 minutes north of the world famous South Beach. The Miami-International Airport and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport are both equally accessible. Bay Harbor Island homes have created an ideal place to live and work. Once a retirement community, Bay Harbor Islands has remained family based, yet still offers an exciting array of activities and nightlife. A fantastic retreat from the ever so near metropolitan Miami, Bay Harbor Island homes present solitude and family enjoyment from the everyday work life. The area is home to an elementary school, retail shops, restaurants, professional offices and many other community centers and public places to relax and unwind.
