Tahiti Beach Homes History:
George Merrick, the founder and developer of the city of Coral Gables, was incredibly inventive in garnering attention from tourists and prospective buyers as it gained popularity throughout the 1920s. On February 6th, 1926, guests of the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables were invited to ride aboard 25 authentic Italian gondolas along the Coral Gables Waterway to “Tahiti Beach”, where they found thatched grass huts and attendants donning Tahitian garb. Merrick advertised the tropical playground as a place “where discriminating people will find their own kind”, and “where the only American Tropics makes its most inviting gesture”. A white sand beach, scenic coconut palms, and Tahiti Beach Clubhouse with a small casino delighted visitors. Sadly, the hurricane of September 1926 destroyed the tropical paradise and Merrick was unable to rebuild thanks to economic downfall, but was later opened to the public on a smaller scale, offering hot dogs and soft drinks. In 1974, the property was purchased as part of the Cocoplum development.
