Useppa Island cottage description

The Duchess Cottage on Useppa Island is the perfect getaway. No cars, no traffic, no noise. It is tranquility at its finest. When you step into the Duchess Cottage you will feel you have made the right decision. The romantic and tranquil coastal cottage has been meticulously decorated and kept. The cottage is two stories. The master bedroom on the first floor boasts the soothing blue ocean colors with a king size romantic bed. A second master bedroom on the second floor, with king bedding boasts an open balcony with seating for 6. The balcony on the second floor overlooks the inter-coastal waterway and you can see Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa and Boca Grande. Large deck at the front of the cottage and a screened in lanai with cozy comfy hammock for those afternoon naps leave plenty of places for privacy and some much needed peace and quiet.

The gourmet kitchen has everything you could ask for. Grocery service delivered directly to you on the Island. If you don't feel like cooking, then dine at the Collier Inn restaurant on the Island. It serves some of the freshest Florida seafood found anywhere with a staff that is there to please your every whim.

The living room has a 48' Flat Screen TV complete with Direct TV and Free HBO and Showtime with a DVR. There are 3 cordless phones that come with free long distance, a Bose IPod docking station and gaming systems of your choice.


Ferry service to and from Bocilla Marina makes it a beautiful start to the perfect vacation.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      Why the Owner Chose Useppa Island:
                      Conde' Nast Traveler rates Useppa Island one of the top 25 Island retreat Getaways in the world. It is only minutes away from World Famous Tarpon Fishing at Boca Grand Pass. It's a stones throw from Cabbage Key and across the intercoastal from Cayo Costa State Park. Walking, golf carts and bicycles are the only transportation on the Island, which makes for very peaceful and quiet afternoons.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The Duchess cottage is located at the end of the Village which provides more privacy and quiet setting for those that wish to get away from it all. Walking the grounds of Useppa Island is like no other walk you will ever take. Passing orchids growing freely, variety of palms and fruit trees, gopher turtles, and a variety of Florida birds. It is tranquility at its finest.
