While Miami remains the country’s ninth most expensive city to rent in in terms of median one-bedroom rentals ($1800 a month), we thought it’d be an eye-opening exercise to take a closer look at the most expensive homes for rent on the market.
These listings are asking as much as $150,000 a month, an incomprehensible figure for the typical tenant. Three homes in Miami-Dade County are asking $90,000 or more and a vast majority of listings on this map feature a Miami Beach address.
This article reveals Miami’s eight most expensive rentals, in order from most to least, according to Zillow.
Note: Omitting a 870-square-foot Hialeah townhome that’s asking $160,000 a month because it must be a mistake (hopefully).
1) Casa La Bonita
Tied for Miami’s most expensive rental is a 14,268-square-footer oozing with gold. Dubbed Casa La Bonita (the pretty house), the mammoth estate offers a movie theater, an elevator, and Biscayne Bay views.
2) Villa Contenta
Our second six-figure listing is this 9,893-square-foot mansion on Palm Island. Villa Contenta offers a volleyball court, private dock, heated pool, rooftop jacuzzi, home theater, and more.
3) 1500 Ocean Drive penthouse
This 8,400-square-foot penthouse in South Beach was featured on Curbed Miami a few weeks ago when it listed for $19.5 million. It’s also listed for rent, and boasts 270-degree views of the ocean and beach.
4) 436 West Rivo Alto Drive
Measuring nearly 10,000 square feet is this Mediterranean bayfront mansion on the Venetian Islands, offering six bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and over 200 feet of water frontage.

The “Miami Vice” home originally hit the market asking $39 million but has since been reduced to $34 million. This rental includes nearly 500 feet of water frontage in Key Biscayne.
