About Gerri O'Boyle
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.
Gerri O'Boyle purchased this House in 2005
Why Gerri O'Boyle chose Longboat Key
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.
What makes this House unique
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

A Diamond that shines
Very spacious, super clean vacation home that is a short walk to a deserted beach on the Gulf. Easily accommodates 6-7 people. New bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen with a relaxing front porch to enjoy happy hour. Took advantage of the bikes, the grills and the beach chairs. Located on a quiet lane with easy access to restaurants. Will definitely return.
Excellent property for families or golf groups
The house was clean and well stocked with necessary supplies upon our arrival. The layout and room/bed arrangements make for a comfortable environment for various configurations of couples, families, or groups of 4-6 golfers. The location is a short walk to the beach, restaurants, golfing, boating and other leisure activities one would expect to find in Florida. This was my third trip to Longboat Key and this home and I would highly recommend it for a week’s vacation or even longer-term visits. When we retire this would be the type of home we would consider taking for the entire month of January or February.
The outside was dirty, however the inside was awesome. Very nice bathrooms. Lots of room for everyone. Enjoyed bikes and beach chairs. No issues with anything. Thank you very much. The weather was great. Located in the middle of everything. Quiet setting.
Sorry the outside was not up to par. The entire outside was painted 8 months ago and hosed off in January. The area is lovely because it is tropical, but it can take a beating with because it is so tropical. We will be at Paradise Cottage this week and will rectify and problems which keep outside from being less than perfect.
Glad you had a good time.
Spent the week here with some friends, we loved it! Such a welcoming, cozy, comfortable home. We loved sitting in the screened in porch drinking our coffee in the morning and our wine in the afternoon. There were 6 of us and we never felt crowded. Plenty of outdoor space and a very short walk to the beach
Good, quiet location
5-minute walk to beautiful, un-crowded beach. Single-level house worked well for large group dining with multiple seating areas. Great to have access to four bikes and beach chairs in shed. Thanks for sharing your home!
Great location, beautiful home
This little house was perfect for my mom's birthday weekend. The only issue is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy all the island has to offer. Definitely give yourself a full week!
This house is uniquely located between Lido Circle at St. Armand's Key and the towns of lovely Anna Maria Island. There are many, many different types of activities to keep the whole family busy.
