Oceana Key Biscayne

Built in 2014, Oceana is in a league of its own with its modern exterior of glass and steel, high ceilings, high-end finishes, offering 142 units ranging from 2 bedroom condos all the way to a 11,000 SF penthouse.  The condos feature high ceilings you can’t find elsewhere on the Island (except for Grand Bay and Ocean Club penthouses). The building features twelve exclusive penthouses as well as a few townhomes with their own private pool.
Oceana is known for its boutique 5 star service and resort-style amenities such as 500 Feet of private beach with beach services, a relaxation Pool & Lap Pool with a poolside restaurant, a tennis court, an ocean-view Fitness Center, Putting greens and a library.
The best line is 01 as these are corner units spanning the entire north and south side of the building. Each unit provides a flow-through plan with roughly 3,800 square feet indoors, in addition to extensive terraces. The North Tower provides for somewhat “cleaner” ocean views and the south tower gets beautiful beach views plus views of the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne property next door.

Oceana on Key Biscayne, one of the island’s best condos.

Ocean Club

Ocean Club is a beautiful community built in 1998 on a 52 acre property offering over 800 condos where buyers will find the broadest offer of large condos in Key Biscayne starting from 2,500 SF. The community features a recently renovated gym ($12M renovation), a private beach club, restaurant, spa, tennis center, beach service and multiple pools.

The Ocean Club complex offers four types of residences: Ocean Towers, Club Towers, Lake Villas and Resort Villas. The two Ocean Towers offer the units closest to the ocean while the three Club Towers have an extra setback to the ocean offering magnificent direct panoramic views of the ocean, pool and grounds. The condos in these five premium towers provide private elevators, a luxurious foyer, concierge, beautiful ocean views and most of them feature flow-through floor plans with views to the ocean, the key, the bay, and in some cases the Miami Skyline.
The Lake Villas are condos located in smaller low rise buildings inside the Ocean Club complex, in some cases providing views to the community’s lakes. Lake Villas offer a formal lobby and large units that tend to resemble a private home experience. Smaller 2 bedroom units are available at the Resort Villas in standalone low rise buildings without a lobby.
We prefer line 08 in Ocean Tower as the best line, as they offer direct ocean access and a level of privacy and light only seen in the large corner units with full east exposure. Club Tower Two condos are also great choices as the offer a straight angle views to the ocean and thus high floors in most lines, are a great choice.

Grand Bay Residences

A classic boutique building with impeccable service, the Grand Bay Key Biscayne complex includes two towers. Grand Bay Residences offers 137 units over 14 floors located perfectly centered in front of the beach and across the pool and common areas. Grand Bay Tower is the closest tower to the beach, offering 100 units across 12 floors and 2 top penthouse levels (Upper and lower penthouses). Grand Bay condos tend to have generous floor plans with condos ranging from two to five bedrooms with areas starting at 1,720 square feet for a two bedroom and going all the way to over 10,000 square feet for the largest penthouses. Higher floors offer lower density, flow-through and corner residences. Penthouses offer high ceilings, unlike the standard ceilings on all the other floors.

There are multiple types of residences including multiple corner layouts and flow-through units and of course, magnificent penthouses. Line 01 at the Grand Bay tower is the best line as it’s a south east facing corner residence right on the ocean providing the perfect combination of privacy, space and beach views very few units can offer in Key Biscayne. At the Grand Bay Residences lines 5, 6 and 7 on floors 6 to 12 are also great options as they offer flow-through plans with great privacy and both beach and bay/key views.

Key Colony

Key Colony is a four building complex offering 1,200 condos. Each of the four buildings (Oceansound, Tidemark, Emerald Bay and Botanica) offers a different character and views. The large 40 acre complex provides a long list of amenities including pools, jacuzzi, gym, 12 tennis courts, children’s playground, dog park ,direct beach access, as well as a Golden Hog mini-market, outdoors restaurant, beauty salon and spa.

The best units are the so called “slopes’, which are oceanfront units with large terraces at both Oceansound and Tidemark. Line numbering varies, but typically end in 36, 37 and 38. There are also large lanais, resembling homes as well as three-story oceanfront townhomes, which are unique offerings that may appeal to buyers seeking larger floor plans and privacy rather than ocean views. North facing units on Oceansound are also special units as a few of them have great views of the Miami Skyline.

The Towers of Key Biscayne

Located on the southernmost tip of the island, next to Bill Baggs state park and the Cape Florida Lighthouse, Towers of Key Biscayne is arguably the most private and “nature-oriented” building on the key. This community with 538 units across six 12-floor towers, offers generous floor-plans with unique views provided with its award winning design, which challenges traditional boxy buildings providing homogenous views. Residents and buyers appreciate the fact this is one of the few buildings -along with Oceana- offering floor-to-ceiling windows. The Estoril floor plan is the star condo as these are corner units offering six very large floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of light and the privacy of corner units. Although originally conceived as two bedroom condos, over the last 3-5 years many units have been completely gutted and redone into 3 bedroom units with high-end finishes. We recommend lines 01 and 08, which are not only corner units, but have no neighbors and thus provide 270 degree views with total unobstructed privacy. In particular, B01 and B08 are the premium lines of the building, with direct beach views. Lines D01, D08, E01, E08 provide bay and park views.The building offers two pools, restaurant, beauty salon, sauna/spa, tennis courts, gym and is currently undergoing an upgrade process that will include a more modern exterior color scheme, upgraded corridors and facilities. It is also one of the few buildings on the key to offer hurricane windows rather than shutters.

We have only superlatives to describe how wonderful Cris Buzolin was throughout the process of selling our townhouse in Coral Gables. We were away in the UK while the transaction was taking place and Cris handled everything-from clearing out our house, selling contents when she could, arranging the moving and storage and dealing with some very difficult problems which arose. Always patient and very willing to help in every way, Cris is a consummate professional who really cares about her clients and worked extremely hard to get the price we had asked for and make things for us as easy as she could. Nothing was too much for her to handle.Cris and Marianela (who provided additional very helpful assistance to us during the transaction) are part of the team that David Siddons has assembled.When we decided to sell our property, we contacted David and he established the framework for the transaction and ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and in accordance with our wishes. In sum, David Siddons and his team are extremely competent and professional and we are totally satisfied with the service they provided. To repeat, Cris Buzolin in particular, went way beyond what one would expect from a real estate agent. The David Siddons Group has our highest recommendation!

Fantastic group of people to work with!! David and Adriana were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We weren't familiar with South Florida so David took us under his wing and did a fabulous job giving us a tour of select neighborhoods in South Florida and shared a great deal of information about each. We fell in love with the Botaniko community in Weston and closed the deal with Adriana. If you are buying/selling this is the team you want to work with!! Thank you guys for helping us find our dream home.
