Every story has a beginning, and the history of Williams Island dates back to the early 1980s. The Trump Group, headed by Eddie, Jules and Stephanie Trump from South Africa, discovered this Island peninsula nestled on 84-acres in the exclusive enclave of Aventura. Secluded and covered by Australian Pines, it was the ideal setting for a private Island community.
It became a true Island surrounded by Dumbfoundling Bay, Maule Lake and little Maule Lake with a continous flow of water surrounding the island, with the building of a series of marinas at the entrance to Williams Island.
The luxury residences at Williams Island were among the first of their kind in the region. Elegant resort trappings…spectacular views…charming village scapes… once solely the realm of France’s Côte d’Azur and Italy’s Liguria coastline, these amazing lifestyle elements have been a part of Williams Island since the 1980s. The Trumps enticed Screen legend Sophia Loren to call Williams Island home. Sophia Loren served as a consultant to The Trumps on the charming Mediterranean Village. The Village was designed after Procida, one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. Ms. Loren took the Trumps to visit the Island as they planned the Mediterranean Village at Williams Island.
