  • Lovely week at a lovely home

    "This was our 2nd time staying on LGI, but first time upgrading to a beachfront location. We were thrilled with the prospect of staying in such a quintessential beach home. We weren't disappointed. Buddy and Laurie's home is a treasure trove of art, antiques, and pure beach charm. I truly felt like I missed the house when I was at the beach- it was that comfortable and homey! But once you're at the beach, you do realize why you're there. It's just a slice of heaven- plain and simple. LGI is a hidden gem....private, clean and scenic. We're excited to get back at some point. Although you have to prepare for the hassle of the water taxi and the hauling of ALL your bags and groceries off the boat and down the dock where, hopefully, in 90 degree heat someone will be there waiting to help you. Thankfully-- It's not for everyone. We'll keep coming back bc the beach and island is just SO worth it. We'll put up with the hassles - if it gets us back to LGI."

  • Heritage Grand PL Bradenton

    "We stayed here for 3 weeks and it was absolutely fabulous. We were a party of 6 adults. The house itself is lovely with beautiful furniture and fittings. A stunning setting with a a lake next to the Lanai. River Strand itself is beautifully maintained and those residents we met could not have been nicer. The house is in an ideal location to get to beaches, shopping and about 50 minutes from Tampa..Busch Gardens etc. We have relatives in the area and have stayed in or near Bradenton at least 10 times and this was one of the very best. A quick word of thanks to Kim and RIck the "House Sitters" who were very helpful with any question or query we had. We needed a bulb/lighting issue sorted and they were there in TWELVE MINUTES We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it"

  • Fishing Paradise

    "Great fishing vacation with my wife and sons at Dock Envy. Beautiful unobstructed view of Bird Island, and a short walk to the gulfside beach. Owners are the best! Very helpful with anything and everything that we needed, including giving us a golf cart tour of the island and casting a net to catch some live bait for the boys. Boys caught everything from 15" Mangrove Snapper to large catfish to Rays to Snook, including a monster 42" Snook that made my 14 year old's year. The water taxi to the dock is comfortable and is a 5-minute boat ride from Eldred's Marina. Would recommend that you know how to throw a cast net for bait. There is baitfish galore and it is easily caught if you can throw a net, and the big boys like the mullet. Hold on for dear life is all I can say. Thanks John and Cindy for a memorable week; and we'll see you again soon."

Placida Travel Tips

Placida Vacation Rentals in a Small City with a Big Heart

Placida vacation rentals fill this small Florida town, nestled off the Florida gulf coast in Charlotte County. Near Punta Gorda, Florida, Placida is just minutes from Charlotte Harbor, which is one of the largest natural harbors in the United States. Placida vacation rentals allow you to see the history and the small town charm this beautiful city has to offer.

Soak in the Placida Sunshine

Year-round sunshine makes Placida vacation rentals the perfect place to stay during every season. Placida condos are located near shopping, sunbathing, and restaurants for a vacation that allows you to soak in the sun and relax. If you want a little more adrenaline in your vacation, visit one of the nearby marinas to scout boating and fishing opportunities, hit balls at one of the many local golf courses, or rent a kayak to take out in Charlotte Harbor.

Become One with Nature in Placida

The weather you'll enjoy when you stay in Placida condos is great, but another benefit to Florida Gulf Coast beach rentals is the wildlife. The Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center features a nesting pair of bald eagles. To spot your first alligator up close, stop by Babcock Ranch, and go to Wildlife Park to enjoy some hiking and horseback riding. You can easily access these wonderful attractions when you stay in Placida vacation rentals.

Placida Condos Allow Easy Access to Florida Hot Spots

Florida Gulf Coast beach rentals are near some of Florida's most visited attractions, such as SeaWorld or Disney World, may be out of your price range. Instead, choose Placida vacation rentals to save money on your lodging. Sarasota, Florida is just to the north of Placida, and Fort Meyers is just to the south. Placida condos are within comfortable driving distance of attractions in Miami, Orlando, and Tampa.
