Jimmy Buffett Opens Margaritaville Retirement Homes To The Public And They’re Beautiful


What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of going into retirement?

If the image involves anything having to do with hanging out in a tropical community and watching the world go by, Latitude Margaritaville is right up your alley.

Jimmy Buffett partnered with Minto Communities and the homes that they created for people who are ’55 or better’ look like heaven on earth here in Florida.

“It’s always been that happy place in your mind, the spirit of adventure in your soul. It’s the state of mind when it all comes together in one of life’s perfect moments. When your mind wanders to this paradise, why not follow it home?” reads the description on the website.

Daytona Beach is the location of the first of the communities. It became available in the summertime but additional locations are opening soon in Hilton Head, South Carolina and Watersound, Florida.

If you are familiar with Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Margaritaville’ lifestyle, then these retirement communities will look very familiar. They include access to the beach, spas, pools, exciting recreation and live entertainment. They even offer a ‘FINtastic nightlife’.

For those who are interested in making this community a part of their retirement, they will “be a very fun place for them to “grow older, but not up.”

As you can imagine, owning a slice of this pie is not going to come without a cost. There are some 7000 homes available and they are going to cost about $1 billion to build. They include individual furnished and unfurnished two and three-bedroom models and will sell from the “very low $200,000s to $350,000.”

It seems as if money is no problem for many of the Parrotheads who have already signed on the dotted line. According to Bill Bullock, the VP of Minto, they have already had more than 10,000 registrants in the first two weeks.
