A Shangri-la. Archipelago. Ultra-exclusive. Palatial. Luxurious. Perfection.
Indian Creek, the privileged and private island was established in 1939. It is a true residential dreamland, home to only 86 residents and 32 waterfront estate homes sitting on no less than 1¼ lots, all with serene, unobstructed waterfront views and access to an exclusive, renown golf course and country club, which take up the center of the 294-acre island. As of year 2000, it was recognized as the 8th highest-income producing place in the United States, boasting a net worth in excess of $37 billion. Indian Creek is secluded by the shores of Surfside to the east and Biscayne Bay to the west. The island is protected by a private 24-hour police force and 24-hour marine patrol. While Indian Creek used to be replete with mostly vacation residences, families with children are becoming more common as houses transform from vacation residences to annual residences. As a result, sidewalks and streetlights are surfacing, so children —who were a rare sight only a decade ago— can ride their bikes, run, and play outside. The Indian Creek Country Club, one of the most exclusive country clubs in America, has added golf and tennis lessons for children to adjust to the demographic change.
