A Look Inside Margaritaville Retirement Communities

A Look Inside Margaritaville Retirement Communities

Parrotheads, unite!

If you’re looking for a change of scenery as you prepare to spend your golden years, perhaps a retirement change in latitudes and attitudes is also in order.

When you settle down in a Jimmy Buffet retirement community you won’t be “wastin’ away again in Margaritaville,” as much as you’ll be living your best life.

Consistently ranked among the nation’s top communities since the first opened in 2018, Latitude Margaritaville retirement communities have totally captivated the active adult population. Now with two (soon to be three) locations, a step inside a Margaritaville retirement community and you’ll realize there’s no place like an island paradise home.

Let’s face it, Jimmy Buffet aficionados are more than just “fans,” they’re a movement. A casual and mellow community of boomers (who welcome all generations, really) united by peace, love, and tropical vibes.

How much does it cost to live in Latitude Margaritaville?

For what will feel like an island vacation 24/7/365, the cost of living in a Latitude Margaritaville community won’t break the bank, surprisingly. In each of the communities, homes range from low/mid-$200,000s to mid $300,000s.

Latitude Margaritaville lots can be purchased for as low as $500 (up to about $35,000).

As far as monthly HOA fees, a Latitude Margaritaville member can expect to pay between $250-$290 a month for a “maintenance-free” lifestyle. That monthly fee also covers full access to all amenities, but we suggest you check with your local agent or community rep when doing your research for all the nuances and costs so you know exactly what to expect and budget for.
