Today's Fisher Island is equally exclusive, private and represents one of the wealthiest zip codes in the U.S. Accessible only by auto-ferry or yacht, this private residential island community & Miami country club is set against views of the Atlantic Ocean, the iconic Miami skyline, and is located off-shore, just minutes from the U.S. mainland and South Miami Beach.
The original Vanderbilt Mansion now serves as the landmark centerpiece of the sprawling 45 luxury accommodations; dotted with the charming villas (the Courtyard Villas were added in the late 80's) and lavish cottages that made up the original property. (the surrounding buildings, cottages that are part of the original property are: Mansion, Pump house / Beach Club tower , Rosamund's Studio, Rosemary's cottage, North and South Cottage, Jr. Suites, Café Tangier, Airplane hanger.)
In 2007, seeking to return Fisher Island to its original glory, while raising it to today's discriminating industry standards, Phase I of the Renaissance of Fisher Island, a 60 million project began with investments provided by Fisher Island Holdings (developer) and the residents and members of Fisher Island for club renovation and restoration. Construction commenced for the new golf course and renovations of the main marina. In 2008 construction began on the Beach Club and the Courtyard Villas for the hotel component for the resort. The restoration initiative continues with the spa and other island resort facilities as part of phase II.
At the heart of this exquisite tropical retreat is the incomparable Fisher Island Club. This Miami Beach resort alternative and luxury country club offers members and guests with the finest residential and recreational amenities to be found anywhere in the world.
