When exploring Miami Beach you may have come across an assortment of residential land masses to the west of the city. Of these islands, one of the most notable is Star Island. Like the neighborhood’s name implies, Star Island contains several Miami Beach homes that are owned (or were once owned) by celebrities. Musician Lenny Kravitz, entertainer Madonna, baseball player Alex Rodriguez, singer Gloria Estefan and actor Will Smith are some of the many household names associated with Star Island.
Considering that Star Island is the home of box office stars, musicians and more, the Miami Beach homes on the island are all large and generally within the multimillion dollar range. It’s not uncommon to find homes with over 18,000 square feet and more than seven bedrooms. As you’d expect, boat docks practically come standard here.
Star Island has a guardhouse which gives it the illusion of being private but you can always stop at the gate and see the neighborhood for yourself. It’s a wonderful place to visit before or after checking out nearby Miami Beach.
