Celebs In On Miami Beach Real Estate

The Venetian Islands in South Beach

It used to be that Beverly Hills was the place to go to for the best in celebrity spotting. But today, there are probably as many people selling “Maps to the Stars Homes” in Miami Beach than there are on America’s other coast. The reason? Miami Beach real estate is hot, hot, hot, with the entire Miami area ranking as a top destination for celebs to vacation, winter, and even live year-round.

So who might you bump into while waiting in line at the local Whole Foods? As you might expect, Miami Sound Machine founder Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio are longtime denizens of the region, making their home on the appropriately named Star Island. Miami Heat basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal is their neighbor, as is a comedienne and former talk show queen Rosie O’Donnell. Sean Combs, also known as Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy, and more, also lives here, while hot couple Jay-Z and Beyonce own property nearby.

Miami Beach is home to singer Ricky Martin, while Lenny Kravitz lived on Sunset Island. Exclusive Fisher Island is home to tennis king Boris Becker and Queen of All Media Oprah Winfrey, who lives there part-time in one of the island’s many luxury condos and homes.

If movie stars are more your thing, keep your eyes peeled for Matt Damon and Will Smith, both of whom have purchased properties in the area. Jennifer Lopez and her husband Marc Antony live in sizzling South Beach, while the father and son musical duo Julio and Enrique Iglesias call the Miami Beach region home. As does Enrique’s gorgeous girlfriend, Russian tennis star turned-model Anna Kournikova. And the list keeps growing, with more celebs snapping up more waterfront and oceanfront condos and homes in this A-list destination.

So the next time you’re out running errands in the neighborhood, keep your eyes open. When you live in Miami, you never know who you’ll spot, and premier Miami Beach real estate is what celebs are seeking.
