3 Real Estate Trends Making Mega Waves Across South Florida

April 25, 2016

A typical luxury Miami condominium delivers countless perks — from coastline views to butler service. But deep-pocketed Florida buyers don’t just want to gaze out over the ocean, they want to stick their toes in the sand too — and not just at open-swim hours. Lucky for them, a number of Magic City developments have increased the luxe factor of their beach-cabana offerings, fashioning them as amenity-packed homes away from home.

The Estates at Acqualina is building 10 oceanfront cabanas available for residents to purchase — ranging from 335 to 600 square feet and priced from $2 million. Two-car garages attached to the cabanas provide easy sea access, while full bathrooms and appliances like wine coolers, ice makers and even cappuccino machines give a great reason to stay put.

Italian designer Piero Lissoni, meanwhile, adorned the interiors of the four 400-square-foot poolside spreads at Oceana Bal Harbour, which are available to residents by reservation at no extra cost. These climate-controlled spaces include kitchenettes, bathrooms, mounted HD televisions and even curated artworks, for a bit of culture with your sandcastles. Lissoni also designed the four poolside cabanas at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach — also reservation-only at no cost — where private bamboo enclosures surround showers and cushy seats.
