Tags:   Hibiscus Island Real Estate, Hibiscus Island Homes, Hibiscus Island

Located in the heart of beautiful Biscayne Bay, Hibiscus Island holds a special appeal for those who enjoy boating in calm waters and being close to the amazing amenities offered by South Beach and Downtown Miami. But what makes this community standout from other private islands in the area like Palm Island, Fisher Island and Star Island? The differences are subtle, but enough to make some luxury home owners choose Hibiscus Island.

Location is obviously important for anyone looking for luxury Miami Beach homes, but the quality of property and neighborhood are also features that are strongly considered.
