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.
