Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: I find nothing more relaxing than being near the water, and my home and vacation cottages are all just steps away. Just retired after 31 years in education, I am looking forward to more time in 'Paradise'!
Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible only by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our cottage the next day. We have loved every minute we spend on the Island and enjoy sharing our vacation paradise with others. Many repeat guests are creating family traditions at 'Miss Patti's' cottage.
