About Wendy

Hi from Wendy and Tifis of Paradise Cove.

Tifis discovered this undeveloped incredible property with a private marina in 2002 on 6 acres. He thought he was Columbus! What a find! Views that are incredible. We then developed the property and created Paradise. Truly one of the most magnificent homes and properties in the Keys. We have maintained all the required licenses to rent for less than 30 days so we can accommodate weekly rentals without the renter fearing they will be cancelled if Monroe County shuts down the ability to rent. THIS IS WHAT EVERY RENTER SHOULD LOOK FOR.

Wendy has been involved as an owner of Retail stores - Sandal Factory and T-Shirt City over the last 17 years and has enjoyed living full time in the Keys since 1990. She is also on the advisory board of First State Bank of the Florida Keys.

We welcome you to come escape to our wonderful piece of Paradise.

Wendy purchased this house in 2005

Why Wendy chose Key Largo

Our location is great. We are only 1 1/4 hours from Miami Airport - it is 6 acres of magnificent gated, controlled access property and very private. The oceanfront views are incredible, fishing is great from the boardwalk, dock your boat and you are out to the ocean in one second - steps in front of the house. We have our own private marina as part of this property which is unheard of in the Keys. It is the exception at Paradise Cove. The house is pristine, great for entertaining and every bedroom has a king bed! You get the use of up to 4 kayaks while staying on property too. Close to shopping, restaurants - but a lot of people arrive and never want to leave.

What makes this house unique

As this is a 6 acre property, it is very private. It is gated, secure and tranquil. It also has weekly rentals legally. We also are lucky enough to have 40 acres of protected trees adjacent to us - you can imagine the level of privacy this adds and the stars at night are incredible as we have No Light Pollution. It's like a planetarium. Having a private marina as part of the property, one can enjoy seeing the various aquatic life - fish, swim, snorkel or feed the fish. There's always something to see. The house is spectacular - very spacious and comfortable. It creates memorable times for those who have had the opportunity to stay with us. When you want only the very best, please come visit Paradise Cove.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a wonderful stay at your piece of paradise! We enjoyed every part of the property, kayaking, fishing, swimming, exploring and enjoyed making friends with a pelican. We loved cooking meals in your well stocked, spacious kitchen. It was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday with the ones I love. Thank you.

Perfect property, perfect home, perfect time spent with family. Our family was fortunate enough to be able to enjoy this home for two weeks in February. We fished in the private marina (and caught enough mangrove snapper for dinner one night), we swam in the pool and enjoyed the spa, sat on the porches, kayaked, fed the fish, and just relaxed. The property is very quiet, but close to restaurants and shopping. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for cooking. The bedroom/bath situation is great because it allows privacy for everyone. There were plenty of supplies at the home when we arrived to clean up with (because even when I am on vacation I want a clean house!). The home is just a well thought out, well supplied property. Wendy and Tifis were helpful, but not intrusive. The only problem I can see with this property is eventually the vacation will end and you will have to leave this paradise.

Amazing home with fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paradise Cove inside of one month from the landfall of Hurricane Irma but you would be hard pressed to tell that from the great shape of the house. Wendy and Tifis did phenomenal work to make the house ready for our group of 6 adults. We had a great time. We had plenty of room and enjoyed the many enmities including the pool/hot tub, fishing from the dock, kayaking and snorkeling. Our hosts pointed us towards great restaurants and were flexible with our travel plans. I highly recommend this property and we look forward to returning in the near future.
