Complete Guide To Coconut Grove’s Gated Communities
If you are looking for a home in a gated community you have quite a few choices here in Coconut Grove. As you can see from the map below, the entrances to these private communities are located along South Bayshore Drive, Main Highway and Douglas Road. Some of our gated communities are larger and consist of more than 50 homes/villas while others are much more private with just a handful of homes within the community.
I am proud to say that I have been a part of 4 of the 16 sales in Coconut Grove’s gated communities this year.

It was the scene of many of the University’s social and ceremonial functions. Today, Longview consists of 10 luxury two-story villas. Common areas of Longview include a 60 foot pool with waterfall and tennis court. It is a great combination of luxury and yesterday’s Coconut Grove.
