Very spacious 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom right on the ocean
The apartment building is at the end of a cul-de-sac, on beautiful Biscayne Isle, on the Venetian Causeway, putting it at the heart of all that is happening in Miami and also in Miami Beach. It is very close to Lincoln Road Mall and the South Beach area on the Miami Beach side, and also very close to the new Perez Art and Frost Science museums, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the popular Windwood area, on the Miami City side.
Being on a cul-de-sac, the building is very private and secure. There is a guard on duty at the entrance to the building 24/7. The complex has a heated swimming pool, a tennis court, a gym and an ample lobby area. The apartment comes with one designated covered parking space, but there are plenty of additional visitor parking spaces and open areas to stroll and relax next to the ocean. The ocean surrounds the building to the north and west. There is also a dock area on the west side where water taxis or yachts may dock to pick-up guests.
The condo is an ample two bedroom apartment with 2.5 baths. All areas have spectacular ocean views, as the apartment sits on the fifth floor of the building and is only a few yards from the ocean. From its terrace balcony, which expands the whole width of the apartment and is accessible from the living room and from both bedrooms, you have magnificent views of the ocean and the land areas to the east and west, and of Pace Picnic Isle and the 36th street bridge to the north. We think it feels like you are aboard an ocean liner when looking out from the terrace/balcony.
The apartment is fully furnished and equipped. It was last remodeled in 2015, when marble floors were installed and the half-bath was completly redone as well as the shower areas of both bathrooms. Many other significant improvements were made at that time, and the apartment looks tastefully done and well decorated as you will see from the pictures here. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the other bedroom has two queen beds.
It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a laundry area with a washer and dryer.

About Raul Hoyo
Francesca and I are an active retired couple, living some wonderful times. Our hobbies are biking and skiing, so we try to keep fit in order to be able to do them. We are Dominican citizens and we live in Santo Domingo, DR, but we travel often to the US and elsewhere. We have three sons, ranging in ages from 30 to 40, and we have three wonderful grandchildren, two boys and one little girl.
Raul Hoyo purchased this Condo in 1982
Why Raul Hoyo chose Venetian Islands
The apartment has been in our family for many years. My father bought it in 1982, and it has been our home in Miami, to us and to our children, since then. We have seen the area improve with the times, and now it has become the heart of Miami and the Beach. We bike a lot when we are there. Going on Venetian Causeway to the beach, to Lincoln Road, and all the local restaurants on Purdy and Bay Roads is a lot of fun. Lately, we have been doing the same on the other side, the Miami City side. Since the opening of the museums and the new popularity of the Windwood area, crossing the bridge to the west is now part of our exploring and biking fun.
What makes this Condo unique
When we walked into the building the first time and from the lobby saw the ocean right behind the glass doors, it was an instant "love at first sight" for us. Then, seeing the apartment, its views, its spaciousness and the building's comforts, made the decision an easy "must buy". The building is not a High-rise with a multitude of apartments. It has only 12 floors, with ample open spaces and plentiful parking. The heated swimming, tennis court and gym are great pluses to enjoy inside the building's premises.

Comfortable Condo at a Reasonable Price in a Convenient Location
We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable two bedroom condo. The beds were comfortable and the views were great! It was an easy drive from the condo to South Beach. It would be easy to rent bikes and ride out to the beach as well. Raul was very accommodating - allowing us to check out late (since no one else was checking in on the day we left) so we could freshen up before an evening flight home. He also made suggestions for several restaurants, coffee shops and and other spots to visit. We'd definitely stay here again!
Thank you, Heidi. It was a pleasure to work with you and it would be a pleasure to have you back with us!
Great location with great Ocean views, Loved it.
Really enjoyed staying at this condo. Good location for traveling to Miami Beach or Ft. Lauderdale. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Perfect balcony for boat watching and great skyline views especially in the evenings. Very professional owner, quickly responded to e-mails. Next time I'm in the Miami area I will be staying here again.
Thank you! It was a pleasure working with you.
