Villas by the Sea is a brand new community located in quiet Lauderdale-by-the-Sea neighborhood in North Fort Lauderdale Beach. One of Minto Builder’s main selling points includes the slogan: ‘The way ocean living should be: low rise, low key, and very high style.’

Villas by the Sea is located in a wonderful area of South Florida called Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Located just 5 minutes north of Fort Lauderdale’s Galt Ocean Mile, it’s an ideal city on the ocean with ample shopping, dining, and relaxation.
A city fishing pier is nearby, walking distance, to offer the fisherman in the household hours of relaxation and enjoyment.
A 3-block strip of boutiques and restaurants is also within walking distance, featuring old Fort Lauderdale Favorite Aruba’s. Aruba’s is an ocean-front Seafood Restaurant with a fun island flaire. I recommend their weekday happy hour from 4-7 pm, including $5 Martini Mondays, $4 Margarita Tuesdays, and a complimentary pig roast every Friday evening with 2-4-1 cocktails. Their menu features local favorites, such as Carribean Conch Chowder, Fresh Dolphin filet–cooked your way, and Amazing Key Lime Pie. Their website with more information can be viewed here.
Other local dining favorites include nearby ‘Village Pump‘ Restaurant, with fresh, delicious Sushi in their smaller, back-restaurant, and 101 Ocean, a trendy casual but classy restaurant and bar featuring daily happy hours, a lively ladies night, and a Medeteranian-esque menu that satisfies the pallate.
The City of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea offers many events throughout the year to cater to residents, including a Fourth of July Parade & Fireworks display, monthly beach cleanups, Art and Food Festivals, and street music festivals. More information can be found on the city’s website.
Villas by the Sea, while offering all of the convenience of beach-side living, is still fairly affordable beachfront real estate, with an average price range of $430,000-$1.3M, depending on the upgrades and size differences between units. The community is very convenient for highway commuting, located just North of Commercial Blvd and A1A. This is located about 10 minutes from I-95, and about 15 minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Currently there are still units available from the builder and more information can be recieved through our very own Jeannette Neerpat, Condo Domain’s South Florida Real Estate expert, at (877)852-6636. Sporadically units come available on the market for re-sale, as well.
Villa’s by the Sea is a pet friendly community, geared toward buyers of all ages and welcomes anyone ready to live the beach-front lifestyle in Sunny South Florida.
