Fisher Island vacation rentals

Sports cars and private yachts

Fisher Island lies a few miles off the Florida mainland and is part of the metropolitan area of Miami. Yet it feels like a whole world within itself. Once owned by the wealthy Vanderbilt dynasty, the island was sold in the 1960s, paving the way for lavish development. Fisher Island is still small, with a population of largely wealthy residents who have the highest capita income in the US and drive around the island in expensive sports cars. There is no bridge road connecting the island to the mainland and the only way to reach it is on a ferry, or if you own a home here, by private helicopter.

Live a life of leisure on Fisher Island

You can live the life of leisure at your Fisher Island vacation rental. While away the days on the private beach, artificially created using white sand shipped in from the Caribbean, or visit the public spa housed in a Mediterranean-style building where you can get pampered by a range of treatments including facials and massages. If you're feeling a little more energetic, you can swing your clubs on the local golf course, go bird watching in the park, or hit the tennis courts. And then there are the dining opportunities, with chic restaurants catering to the exacting tastes of the up-scale locals.

A stone's throw from central Miami

Fisher Island vacation rentals also make a great base for visiting the iconic attractions of Miami. The city has enlightening places to see, including the Jewish Museum of Florida that chronicles 250 years of Jewish history in Florida, and the Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum, a multi-million dollar facility which houses artificial ecosystems and wildlife. Just north of Miami Beach is the Spanish Monastery, a 12th-century structure that was shipped brick by brick from Spain and rebuilt almost a century ago. If you like Art Deco architecture, there really is no place like Miami, which is home to the biggest collection of structures in the world.

A beautiful year-round climate

Fisher Island sits of the southern tip of the Florida peninsula, not far from the Caribbean. It's no surprise, then, that the island's climate is tropical. The summer months are marked by hot, humid weather that is best spent lounging on the beach and taking refreshing dips in the cool Atlantic Ocean. The cool air breezes through in winter, but the temperature never really drops below 70, making it a welcome relief for the snowbirds traveling to Fisher Island vacation rentals from the colder climates of North America or Europe.

Sandy beaches and tropical gardens

Fisher Island is characterized by man-made tropical gardens and palms that surround the Mediterranean-style housing and vacation rentals. The perfectly manicured green and sand traps of the golf course overlook the marina, ocean, and the city of Miami beyond. In typical Miami style, Hummers and sports cars cruise the streets of this exclusive island, while the long south facing sandy beach enjoys melting orange sunsets every night of the week.
