It is almost impossible to define Star Island with our limited vocabulary. To say that the Star Island community is “exclusive” would be a gross understatement. To label Star Island homes “luxurious” would not do the opulent mansions a bit of justice. Words like “extravagant”, “spectacular” and “magnificent” seem utterly inadequate when referring to Star Island’s jaw-dropping, breath-taking, gasp-out-loud beauty and dazzling wealth. In order to begin to comprehend the sheer exquisiteness of Star Islands, you must see what it is that we are talking about.
Built on one of three man-made islands on the Biscayne Bay, Star Island is an elite luxury community, open to an extremely select group of affluent homeowners. Comprised of some of the most expensive waterfront mansions in a state famous for its pricey properties, Star Islands residents include big-name magnates and leading personalities with assessed net values in the billions(!) of dollars. And with the entire world at their disposal, it is certainly quite significant that they have chosen to make their home on stunning Star Island. In fact, this spectacular waterfront luxury community is not named Star Island for nothing. Residents of Star Island, both past and present, include such legendary celebrities as Madonna, A-Rod, Shaquille O’Neal, Oprah, Sylvester Stallone, OJ Simpson, Anna Kournikova, Enrique Iglesias and Rosie O’Donnell and Sean “P.Diddy” Combs. Star Island homes are so in-demand that there is never more than a handful on the market at one time. What’s more, in today’s sinking economy, Star Island is one of the rare real estate assets whose value is actually rising. One of the Star Island homes currently available for purchase recently raised its asking price by almost 30 percent!
With superb architecture and custom design, Star Island homes come in a range of styles from Spanish casa to Mediterranean villa, but they all share at least one thing in common – absolute sumptuous luxury.

The lavish master suites, gourmet kitchens, formal dining rooms, exercise rooms with steam and sauna, dens, sun rooms, Great rooms and grand foyers are all par for the course in a Star Island home.
