History of Island Cottage
It was first a dream, then a concept and finally a reality by combining the luxuries, warmth & intimacy of a fine B & B … the privacy, spaciousness, and amenities of a quiet beachfront home … and the gardens, fountains, and ambiance of a small but exquisite Caribbean resort.
Island Cottage Oceanfront Inn encompassing eight private villas with fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, kitchens, cathedral ceilings, and spectacular ocean views. Keeping with the Caribbean theme, each villa has been named after a beautiful, tropical island destination, and has been accented with seashells, colorful fabrics and comfortable furnishings reminiscent of the Islands with the music of steel drums & Hawaiian guitar often playing softly in the background.
Keeping conservation of our planet’s resources in mind, Island Cottage incorporates complex irrigation and drainage plan designed to keep the Xeriscape tropical flora and herb garden lush and green with minimal care and watering. Furthermore, a detailed, well thought out decorative lighting schematic was designed to bring soft, romantic, energy-efficient lighting to the courtyard and walkways during the nighttime hours. Additionally, the installation of solar panels as an efficient heat source for the swimming pool and an “Energy Star Rated” roofing system was completed. In 2007, Island Cottage received the classification as a “GREEN LODGE” – number 42 in the state of Florida to be awarded this prestigious and forward-thinking designation.
Within seven months of opening, Island Cottage was singled out as one of Florida’s top 10 inns by world renowned travel writer, Herb Hiller. The Inn has also received the designation as one of The 5 Best Florida Inns by Florida Living Magazine & the industry’s “White Glove” award by Superior Small Lodging.
More recent honors include:
*Select Registry’s Distinguished Inns of North America
*One of the “TOP 10 HIDDEN GEMS” in the United States – awarded by Trip Advisor
* In 2013, One of the “Top 10 Most Romantic Inns in the WORLD” out of over 13,000 inns world-wide (bedandbreakfast.com)
