Oct 07, 2020 October 07, 2020

One of the main perks of living in Miami is its vicinity to the sea. There are few other places on the planet that do waterfront living quite like South Florida. Miami is something of a Mecca for boat lovers, with so many waterfront neighborhoods, like Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Brickell and Edgewater, to name a few. Luckily, if you are a skipper at heart but want the comfort of a condo, there are plenty of opportunities to snatch up real estate in the sunshine state that put you right in the midst of the Miami boating community. And with marinas at every turn, it won’t be hard to find like-minded sea-farers!

Let’s take a look at some of the best Coconut Grove condos for boaters:


Why Coconut Grove?

Coconut Grove is the oldest neighborhood in Miami, and with some of the best marinas that Miami has to offer, it’s an obvious choice for boaters, sailors and fishing enthusiasts. Places such as the Dinner Key Marina and the Coconut Grove Sailing Club are
well regarded amongst the local yachting community.

The Dinner Key Marina offers access to brilliant water and an equally bubbling social scene, while the Coconut Grove Sailing Club provides a historic community feel, with years of tradition from its founding back in 1946. The sailing club also has plenty of events giving you the opportunity to mingle with great people all year round. It also plays host to a number of internationally recognized sailing regattas for the more competitive, as well as a juniors sailing program.

There are also plenty of brilliant schools in the area (public and private) making Coconut Grove a great place to start a family nest, all whilst still being able to look after your beloved boat, and enjoy one of your favorite, family friendly hobbies.

One Park Grove is one of the most luxurious and indeed, desired condos in Coconut Grove.

One Park Grove, a LEED-certified building, also spared no expense when it came to amenities with pools and tropical gardens, as well as a wine cellar and even a private screening room. All of this on the waterfront means that you can live a life connected to the ocean and have easy access to your boat, without having to sacrifice the comforts of home.

Thanks to its rich history, Coconut Grove has immense character and One Park puts you right in the epicenter of that, allowing you to explore the magical town and boutique restaurants by foot.

There is also a rooftop bar and pool, fire lounges, and native gardens. Other amenities include the spa and gym and even a Hammam!

The Fairchild is also a brilliant option for boaters thanks to its private dock with boat slip, you can literally have your boat 50 meters from your condo at all times. You wouldn’t have to worry about supervising the boat and checking up on it as The Fairchild team are all highly professional, that being said, checking on your mooring would be as easy as looking out the window of your home.

Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...
