About the owner: We reside in Washington, DC. We hope to eventually make Paradise Cottage in Longboat Key our retirement home. Until then, we would like to share it with you. Our hole family loves it; whether it be with our children, our golf group, our extended family, we are all happy at Paradise Cottage. I wish I could stay forever.
Why the Owner Chose Longboat Key, FL, USA:
Paradise Cottage is quiet and peaceful. It has been refurbished but still has it's old island charm; much like the architecture in Key West. You will never want to leave. You will have privacy, yet the neighbors are lovely. Set in one of the slimmest parts of Longboat Key, the beach and bay are at your finger tips. The management company is quick to address any needs and offers many services. You are all set at Paradise Cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is nothing you will long for at Paradise Cottage that is not with 10 miles from you. World class medical care, the arts, ballet, opera, Ringling Musuem and world class shopping are just a few things. Two great airports are close. Many and varied grocery stores are close. The house comes complete with cable, phone and WIFI
