Hugging Miami’s waterfront south of Brickell, Coconut Grove (aka “The Grove”) is the city’s oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood.
“It’s that rich history that gives Coconut Grove such a strong sense of community,” says Marco Tiné, principal of Casa Collection Realty.
The neighborhood boasts so many festivals, such a robust retail scene, and so many cultural and historical institutions (such as the famed Vizcaya Museum and Gardens), that many residents find that they barely need to leave.
The expansive marina offers excellent boating opportunities, and leafy parks abound. High-rise and mid-rise residential buildings can be found, but it’s single-family Mediterranean and modern houses that fill the neighborhood from north to south.
