Welcome to Cocoplum
A private beachfront neighborhood with exclusive amenities
This small, gated cluster of lush islands is strung together by a system of sparkling, blue canals that conjure images of Venice, Italy, and the Giethoorn of the Netherlands. Illustrious estates line the canals throughout the neighborhood. Just beyond the precipice of each home’s backyard, a boat sits docked, waiting for another lovely day of adventures.
After George Merrick designed the first outline for the Coral Gables area in 1921, neighborhoods like Cocoplum began to crop up. In the 1970s, the Cocoplum islands were converted into the high-security, exclusive community of today. Yet the region’s history wasn’t lost during this conversion. The original Mediterranean Revival Styles implemented by George Merrick throughout the region still echo through the neighborhood's architecture today. For residents interested in learning more, the Coral Gables Museum can educate the masses on this region’s intriguing origins.
