Welcome to Coconut Grove
Magic by the Bay
Home to its signature Peacocks that casually stroll down the winding streets, Coconut Grove has a special place in my heart as it happens to be my hometown. In the midst of an exciting new bloom, Coconut Grove is filled with high profile projects attracting international residents looking to settle down in this lush tropical pocket of Miami.
Coconut Grove or “The Grove”, as its called by locals, is small laid-back village in the city of Miami. Surrounded by the beautiful warm waters of Biscayne Bay, it’s a hotspot for college students, families, artists and boaters alike. Dating back to the 19th century, it is the oldest developed part of Miami. For many, it’s admired for its artsy bohemian character and vibrant charm, others love it for its outdoor friendly lifestyle and eclectic architecture. If you’re like me, you’ll fall in love with all of it (especially the wild peacocks!)
With many homes on the water, it’s no wonder the Grove is so highly regarded by those with active lifestyles and boaters alike. On any given day, you can look over the bay and find it filled with sailboats, kayaks, jet skis, and yachts. Besides water sports, we have 5 parks along the entire village, most right on the bay. This is Miami’s nautical playground!
Thanks to its rich heritage, Coconut Grove is home to celebrated museums and historic landmarks. One of my favorites is Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Originally built by James Deering after a Italian Villa, its common to find locals exploring their gorgeous European style gardens that transport you back to the old continent.
But it’s not just history that makes Coconut Grove so special. It is a hotbed of new and exciting developments: Grove Harbour Marina, MR. C Residences and Mr. C Hotel, the redesigned Cocowalk, and Commodore Plaza Shops. There is always something new to look forward to!
With everything in close proximity, it’s not uncommon to find couples walking to dinner or biking to our local farmers markets. We have a long list of intimate sidewalk cafes, romantic bistros, chic shops and art galleries.
Full of history, a fusion of cultures, small town charm and ideal accessibility, it’s no wonder so many love to call the Grove their home.
