Why Choose the Venetian Islands?


This island retreat is little known address in Miami Beach that is perfectly located, and made up mostly of single-family homes. Residents not only get to relish the joys, views and privacy of island living, they’re also perfectly positioned for a short drive to South Beach and Edgewater or Downtown Miami, on either side, via the scenic Venetian Causeway. Secluded living, a real sense of community, and the option to easily dive into all the action in a matter of minutes make Venetian Island properties some of the most prized in Miami.

3. 1000 Venetian Way - 1000 Venetian Way, Venetian Islands

A design aficionado's favorite, the twin towers at 1000 Venetian Way are positioned to offer all their residents exquisite views of the bay and sailing over at the Miami Yacht Club in a secluded location that will never have obstructed views. Both towers rise only 20 stories to house a total of 121 expansive, modern luxury residences.

And the Winner of the Best Condo in Venetian Islands in Terms of Luxury Goes To…

1. Grand Venetian – 10 Venetian Way, Venetian Islands

Average List Price: $2,009 per square foot

Grand Venetian

This modern high-rise condo building occupies one of Miami Beach’s premium bayfront parcels. Designed by Kobi Karp, just steps from The Standard Hotel and Spa, the Grand Venetian is home to 124 luxury condos peppered across 25 floors, each with expansive, glass-enclosed balconies. 

Residents of this popular building get access to plush interiors and amenities such as a porte-cochere with valet, completely covered parking garage, tennis court, pool and sundeck overlooking the bay, private party room, gym, expansive balconies, and more.


How Safe are the Venetian Islands?


Besides an overall ‘A+,’ the neighborhood-ranking site niche.com grades the Venetian Islands ‘A’ for ‘Good for Families’ and ‘A+’ for Nightlife. Living in this coastal district, residents enjoy the perks of island living in a highly secure environment. Security monitored-access to most condo buildings and a toll plaza on the Venetian Causeway only enhances the sense of security and community among its residents. 

Additionally, most of the Venetian Islands are made up of single-family homes, which further creates a strong sense of community. It’s no wonder then that the Venetian Causeway is a popular stretch for locals to catch the sunset, take a stroll, jog, bike, or even walk their dogs along its scenic sidewalks.


Best Restaurants in Venetian Islands


The only restaurants to the credit of the Venetian Islands are the Lido Bayside Grill (local favorite for Mediterranean fare with water views) and the Cafe Standard, both located in The Standard Spa. But just a short walk over a small bridge takes residents to neighborhood favorites such as Sardinia (authentic coastal Italian), Barceloneta (Spanish tapas), Lucali (Brooklyn pizza), Icebox Cafe (excellent brunch), Zak the Baker, and Pubbelly Sushi at the Sunset Harbour shops, along with Dr. Smood organic cafe, Delicious Raw Kitchen & Juice Bar, and Sushi Garage.

Shopping in Venetian Islands


Again, the Venetian Islands do not have many shopping options to their credit. However, a short walk or drive delivers residents to the Sunset Harbour Shops and Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach - maintaining that small community feel without compromising on the simple pleasures of life. Favorite boutiques in Sunset Harbor include Eberjey, Frankie Miami, Beach Boutique (one of South Beach’s best boutiques for years), and more.

Within a 10-minute walk or 5-minute drive, residents have a Fresh Market, a Trader Joe’s, two Publix, as well as hair salons, spas, and specialty fitness studios including Barry’s Bootcamp, Modo Yoga, and Anatomy Fitness, hair and nail salons, and more.


The Best Located Condos in Venetian Islands


We were spoilt for choice here, so we decided to name two condos as the best located in Venetian Islands. We choose the twin-tower 1000 Venetian Islands complex simply for its breathtaking views of the bay. And the Grand Venetian, as it is the fastest walk to all that South Beach has to offer; especially the tiny, yet power-packed neighborhood of Sunset Harbour with its Fresh Market, Publix, Trader Joe’s, yoga, bakeries, and banks.

North Beach’s Biggest Development Rejected? What’s Next for the Site of the Deauville Hotel?
Development North Beach’s Biggest Development Rejected? What’s Next for the Site of the Deauville Hotel?
After years of sitting in disrepair due to a fire, the beloved and historic oceanfront Deauville Hotel site in North Beach has been waiting for its fate. Bought by Miami Dolphins owner and billionaire Stephen Ross, earlier this year he revealed plans for the site with a 373-feet, “six-star luxury,” two-tower vision designed by stararchitect Frank Gehry. With one a 175-key Equinox-branded hotel and the other with 150 luxury condos, the preliminary renderings for the project looked nothing short of transformational for this quiet neighborhood that still retains its nostalgia for the heydeys of the 1950s.  However, Ross’ vision, in partnership with his Related Companies, required significant government upzoning approval given its proposed size and location at 6701 Collins Avenue. In July, the Miami Beach City Commission voted to approve the proposal submitted by the Related Companies, submitted in October of 2021, including the first architectural renderings of Gehry’s design for the...
