Allison Island Estate Homes
Allison Island is a cozy Miami Beach waterfront community. It consists of single-family homes and condos, all of which are on the water; there are no dry lot residences on Allison Island.
South of 63rd Street is AQUA Allison Island, a cohesive, pedestrian-oriented guarded island for people who appreciate fine living, inspiring art, and quality design. Its streets and blocks encourage walking and include a waterside promenade, a series of small plazas and a central square connected by avenues, streets, lanes, and walkways.
Lush landscaping creates the vibrant green space of a tropical island. Ten contemporary architectural firms were invited to design the AQUA condos and townhomes, responding to the island setting, the climate of Miami Beach, and the qualities of life associated with the tropics… all emphasizing natural ventilation and light.

North of 63rd Street, Allison Island features luxurious single-family homes fronting Allison Road, which bisects the Island.

All Allison Island homes are waterfront and on large lots ranging from 16,000 to 24,000 square feet with 75 to 100 linear feet on Indian Creek or Biscayne Bay. Most homes have boat docks and the luxury trappings of landscaped gardens, swimming pools, expansive lawns, and some private tennis courts.
