“For The Stars”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

A wonderful place to tour if you want to see how many of the rich and famous stars live their floridian lives. Its truly an experience, especially when you learn that some of the low rent villa go for a cool million dollars a month. Oprah has a 6 million dollar a month condo there with her own private helipad.

“Private oasis in the middle of the city”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I've been to Fisher Island many times, but my first trip was when the resort was just getting under way, I believe in the late 1980's. The island itself provides for a private escape away from the hustle, bustle of the Miami, South Beach. Condo's are large, well appointed, the golf course is beautiful, challenging.

“A ghetto of snobbery and novo-rich pomp and circumstance !”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The isolated ghetto for the novo-rich excels in pomposity and pretentiousness. The isolation from the City by a boat ride together with stuck up residents abusive to the dock staff is creepy. I have no sufficient words of contempt for the general attitude and the atmosphere prevailing there. The condos and the club have been a bone of legal contention and are a source of wealth to many Miami lawyers.
