Rio Vista


Historic Residences of South Florida

Rio Vista and the beautiful Isles is a highly popular community located between Las Olas Boulevard and SE 17th Street causeway. The community dates back to 1925 when Boston developer William Morang platted the community and dredged the islands from the Mangroves.

Since then historic residences reside alongside multi million dollar estates and luxury residences. The isles often feature blended properties where residents have acquired neighboring lots and built some of the most beautiful water front residences in Fort Lauderdale.

The ambiance is old South Florida. Streets lined with coconut trees, royal palms and large oaks. Residents walk their dogs or use golf carts to visit neighbors. Boaters are drawn by the proximity to Port Everglades. Families enjoy the numerous parks including Virginia Young, Hector, Smoker Park and Francis Abreu Place.

Rio Vista looks and feels like a true community and neighborhood. Prices range from $600,000 to $32m and there is a diverse range of architecture and styles. Easy proximity to Federal Highway, I95 and the Turnpike also ensure popularity with families and busy professionals with the added benefit of nearby international and private airports.
