Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various Miami neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out!
This week’s edition of Curbed Comparisons is part of Micro Week, featuring the five tiniest private islands currently for sale in the state of Florida.
No island on this list surpasses one acre and prices range from $595,000 to $1.5 million. Let’s go island hunting!
