10 Best Boutique Condominiums in Miami

One of the fastest growing trends in living in Miami is the boutique condominium. Defined as a small yet luxurious residential structure, boutique condominiums are usually low-rise, low-density buildings with less than 100 units within its walls and go no higher than 5 stories. Some boutique condominium buildings however go beyond 5 floors but have less than 100 homes within, while others divide the number of units among a cluster of small buildings.

A lot of boutique condominiums in Miami are some of the most luxurious residential spaces in the area. Some of these even double as hotels and are called condotels, with some units being sold as residences, and other units being rented out as hotel rooms. These different kinds of units are often separated with residences on specific floors or buildings, and hotel rooms in a separate building or specific floors only. Both types of units share the same amenities that come with staying in the condotel.
