Fisher Island — the island of millionaires in Miami Beach

The Fisher Island in Miami Beach is famous for the highest per capital incomes regulated by access, exceptional landscape and outstanding people who stand behind its creation, development and the halo of its fame and success.

The history of the Fisher family island in Miami Beach

It all began in 1906, when the city on the water began its administrative existence. 12 years later, the owner of the island, Herman Walker, sells it to Dana Dorsey, the first African-American millionaire. Dorsey, in turn, resells it to Karl Fischer, the king of real estate, and the building area is growing by leaps and bounds. But a year later, Fisher sees the marvel of ship design — the 250-foot yacht of William Vanderbilt, a frequent visitor to the sunny coast. "Your yacht in exchange for my island!".

In 1936, the construction of a luxurious Mediterranean-style residence begins, with a galaxy of guest houses, elegant pavilions, pools, tennis courts and skillfully broken gardens. The ensemble was completed in 1941, it serves as the winter residence of the family and a platform for brilliant social receptions.

After a series of sales in the 40s, Garfield Wood, a talented engineer and inventor of hydraulic hoists, becomes the owner of the estate. He spent 25 years working on electric car and military boat projects. In the seventies, land and real estate owners changed, and the tourism industry began to flourish in the 90s through the Fisher Island Club and its exceptional service for residents and guests of the club. In 2007, a large-scale restoration of the historic residence of Vanderbilt takes place. New buildings of the beach club and hotel villas are added to the original buildings, the golf area is being converted, and the aircraft hangar building is being converted into a spa and fitness pavilion.

The heart of resort life is the Fisher Island Club. This charming European-style hotel ensemble oversees the hotel in the historic residence of the Vanderbilt family and its many accompanying services.
