I was born and raised in Bay Harbor Islands. It has a relaxed small town feel in the center of the fast-paced city of Miami Beach, making it a highly desirable place to be. Composed of two islands, the residential areas are quiet and friendly, whereas the business areas are successful and upscale.

I enjoy the calming and relaxing environment of the Bay Harbor Islands area. The extensive police force assures me that the neighborhood is very safe and observant.
The hidden gem of Miami Beach. Safe, world class resteraunts and hotels just a block away. Best beaches- no crowds. The perfect beach town.
