It’s the ideal retreat if you want to live in a picturesque community with tree-lined avenues, scenic parks, striking architecture at every turn, an active sailing community, and peacocks in your backyard. Yes, you read that right! Peacocks casually stroll around the streets in the Grove.

To get a better feeling of what we’re talking about, watch this impromptu Coconut Grove Miami video tour, where we discuss life in this charming urban village while doing a short walking tour around the area. Whether you like nature, food, or history, Miami's oldest neighborhood has something for everyone.


— Why You’ll Fall in Love with Miami’s Coconut Grove?

As you’ll see in our Coconut Grove video tour, with its diverse attractions and unique relaxed lifestyle, the Grove has charmed many people, among them architects, designers, and other creative types to settle down in its tree-lined streets. Here are some of the reasons people fall in love with this beautiful and historic neighborhood:

  • If you love nature, you just can’t turn away from Coconut Grove. A rich collection of waterfront parks, a sprawling botanical garden, and meandering streets draped in lush greenery make this tropical paradise a desirable place to call home.
  • Known for its outdoor culture, there are plenty of things to do around town, between sailing on the weekends, picnicking in a waterfront park, strolling under the canopy, or biking through the Grove’s many shaded avenues.
  • You'll find a relaxed creative vibe, with a charming downtown area filled with some of the best restaurants in Miami, as well as cafés, bars, and the unmissable Cocowalk, the neighborhood’s shopping, dining, and entertainment hub.
  • Although there is no beach at the Grove, it makes up for being a yachter’s paradise. With multiple marinas that host international regattas annually and a rich calendar of year-round sailing competitions, you can live the yachting lifestyle of your dreams here.
  • Finally, its condo offering is very special within Miami. Whether you choose to live on the waterfront or in a gated community, you have a varied collection of low-rise, boutique-style buildings to choose from that offer understated luxury. 

— Some of the
Best Coconut Grove Condos for Sale

Here’s a quick overview of all the Coconut Grove condos mentioned in the video:

  • Grove at Grand Bay: These spiraling towers are a landmark in Coconut Grove. Easily recognizable from the shoreline, this pair of boutique luxury towers was designed by Denmark’s Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) in partnership with Nichols Broch and Associates. With 12-foot-high ceilings, 12-foot-deep terraces, and 12-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors, all residences in these 20-story towers host a grand lifestyle.
  • One Park Grove: A newer addition to the ultra-luxury condo market, the LEED-certified Park Grove complex (inclusive of the Park Grove Club Residences and Two Park Grove) is one of the more stylish towers on the waterfront. Along with extraordinary views of the marina and bay, residents enjoy a rooftop pool, another pool with cabanas, and five acres of gardens designed by Enzo Enea. With only three residences per floor, the luxury tower further offers art by notable painters and sculptors, a signature spa, aromatherapy sauna and steam rooms, curated social events, a nautical concierge, and much more.
  • Grovenor House: Located right across from Dinner Key marina, this 32-story tower gives you a front seat to all the sail action on the bay.  Every single Coconut Grove condo in Grovenor House is crafted to afford extensive water views, and the tower offers access to a lighted tennis court, an infinity-edge pool complete with wet bar and cabanas, a state-of-the-art gym, a sophisticated club room, serene meditation gardens, a children’s playground, a private dog park, and more.
  • The Fairchild: This boutique mid-rise is nestled on a quiet waterfront, next door to Mercy Hospital and the postcard-worthy Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Nature lovers will love the use of wood, stone, and concrete throughout all living spaces, demonstrating architect Max Strang’s signature tropical modernist style. Standout amenities include a private dock with boat slips, a rooftop sunrise pool deck with cabanas, a sunset roof deck with native gardens, a holistic wellness spa with Hammam, butler services for indoor-outdoor entertaining, and much more.
  • Beacon Harbour: This gated Coconut Grove condo community stands only five stories tall against Coconut Grove’s tranquil bayfront. With only two units per floor, residents have the maximum privacy with extra-large layouts starting at about 3,400 square feet. Standout amenities include a bayfront pool with a hot tub, a revamped gym with brand-new equipment, a waterfront pergola with a summer kitchen, a deep-water marina with eight boat slips accommodating yachts up to 68 feet in length, plus more.
  • Vita at Grove Isle: With completion expected in 2026, this pre-construction Coconut Grove condo community will occupy the last buildable parcel on Grove Isle, which means this is your last chance to own a brand-new residence on this exclusive island. With 15-foot-deep balconies, 65 feet of linear bay frontage, and never-to-be-obstructed bay and ocean views, this is island living at its finest. Standout amenities include an 85-slip marina, a 40-foot Fjord houseboat, a fully-attended bayfront pool with luxury cabanas, a 6,000-square-foot restaurant, a spa, curated art lobbies, an exclusive HD golf simulator and bayfront putting greens, an outdoor children’s playground, on-site pet services and grooming, membership to the exclusive Grove Isle Club, and more.
