Parrotheads Can Now Retire To Margaritaville…Literally

We’re not quite sure if this news is brilliant, absurd or brilliantly absurd, but for hardcore Jimmy Buffett fans looking to retire and move to Florida, this might be the best news ever.

Buffett’s Maragaritaville Holdings has announced a new partnership with Minto Communities to create a new retirement community called Latitude Margaritaville in Daytona Beach.  While the ground has been broken on the project already, the official Latitude Margaritaville website says the sales center will open in Fall 2017, with furnished model homes slated for opening in early 2018.

Vice President of Minto Communities Bill Bullock told ABC News that potential residents must be age “55 and better” to apply for one of the 7,000 homes that will make up the community, which will features various amenities like pools, spas and live entertainment.

Two and three bedroom homes will be available with prices ranging from the low $200,000-350,000.   It’s not known if every home will be outfitted with a Margaritaville blender, but if you’re going with a theme, then go all in.
