There are several different style of residences and locations I dream about living in. So many that I laugh at the impossibility of it all ever happening. One of those dreams is living south for the winter. You all know how much I detest Canadian (Ottawa in particular) winters. One such dream is staying in Ottawa for the warmer summer months, and a place down south for winter. So I never have to see another snowbank again. I recently learned about some condominium luxury residences located in South Florida and I am absolutely swooning over this possibility. It truly is luxury living like no other, with views that take your breath away, a level of elegance and sophistication that is unmatched. I would like to share two spectacular projects in South Beach. The first is Apogee condo Miami Beach.
As our name suggests we are here to inspire, and Apogee condo Miami was designed not only to impress but to inspire, and if living surrounded by incredible views of the ocean is something that makes you weak at the knees this is really going to knock you off your feet. All of that glass and unobstructed views of the beauty that is Miami Beach.
I mean….a sophisticated, modern interior, for the rainy gloomy days because I would be spending all of my time out on that spacious (11′ wide) terrace staring out at the water in complete bliss. Complete with barbeque and lots of room for dining and lounging! YES PLEASE!
A little bit more info on these luxurious residences: this high-rise development was created in 2008, consists of 67 well-appointed condo residences each with flow-through city and water views, developed by The Related Group and designed by Sieger-Suarez.
The amenities included in this development mean you don’t ever have to leave the property. There is a fitness center, a state of the art spa (*sigh*), an infinity-edge pool, open-air party pavilion (yes, you heard that right), valet and concierge and I could go on and on.
Instead let me show you a second dreamy property.
Miami Beach Continuum towers, located on the southernmost tip of Miami, are a soaring resort-style condominium complex that contain 505 units and of course also have spectacular views. Like Apogee, this property is as beautiful and equipped to make living in South Beach an absolute dream. Let me show you a bit more….
I cannot imagine the experience of cooking in that kitchen above overlooking so much greenery and sky and water. It truly is incredible. Luxurious, modern and beautiful details – I love the built-in shelving along the wall in the living room. These 2 towers have something for everyone – from studio condos to 6 bedroom units. But it is the views from the terraces that will without a doubt win you over.
The Continuum Miami Beach is otherworldly and magical. Imagine having a sightline like this to wake up to every morning! And to make living here even more pleasurable, the amenities are endless. World-class fitness center, eucalyptus steam room, redwood sauna, heated whirlpools, cold plunge, spa services, white sandy beach with cabanas, free-form lagoon swimming pool, tennis club and on and on…
Can you imagine wintering in one of these properties (or living full time)? I sure can. It sure would make winters much more enjoyable and provide peace of mind having so many comforts at your fingertips.

Having lived in Condos for years in Asia – I can’t bear the thought of it any more. Perfect for some though – that’s for sure. x
They may be luxury to some, but to me they are ugly.
