About BillBill, originally from Louisville, Kentucky, is a former engineer, earning degrees in electrical and computer science engineering.
He has used (and uses today!) his expertise, knowledge, and experience to maintain, improve, and beautify the property. And, he continues to be the key person to ensure that everything on, in and about the property works beautifully, every day!
When not working, Bill loves to read, travel, sun and swim, and play with grandchildren. In addition, he's done some multi-media 'videos' with photos and videos of the family that are pretty spectacular! He also enjoys cigars.
Bill loves meeting guests and hearing their stories. Early on after starting this business, Bill told June, “Everyone has a story… and I love to hear them."
June, also from Louisville, is a former sales and marketing training manager, and curriculum designer. In addition to training programs, June managed industry trade show and training events in the U.S.and Europe.
June admires Bill's know-how and his ability to get things done.
Day-to-day, she stays involved in the the business's management. And, she's been a leader in the Superior Small Lodging association™ in the St. Petersburg - Clearwater area.
She particularly enjoys getting to know guests and believes that "Island Paradise Cottages... gets the BEST guests in the world!"
