About Tom Chamblee
We are a family of 5. Our 3 kids were young when we purchased and absolutely loved the island. They still go when possible. My wife and I just don't have the time to go much either so we want our guests to enjoy.
Tom Chamblee purchased this Townhome in 1999
Why Tom Chamblee chose Placida
We purchased for our kids and to have a beach to go for weekends and we would spend a week at a time on vacation here. we are boaters and love to fish and go to the beach. This has it all. We kept a boat down there for years in dry storage. There are great restaurants in the area and one of the best beaches anywhere.
What makes this Townhome unique
It's so secluded, private and quiet since there are no cars on the island. Riding around the beautiful golf cart roads is just so very unique and incredible. Most of our guests come back every year and many come more often.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Best vacation yet and the owner of this property was outstanding to work with! Will definitely be going back!
Tom was great to work with. He always got back to me ASAP. The only thing I would say about the house is that it does need some TLC.
Peaceful Island Getaway
Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation getaway on this beautiful island. Condo was well equipped for our stay. Golf cart was a bonus to explore the island but lights were not working, so no night time use. WIFI was spotty, some days not working at all. Tom was very easy to work with during the process of renting and during our stay.
My family and I had a very pleasant week on the island and will most likely make this an annual family vacation. Thanks Tom.
Thank you so much Vonnie. Susan and I are very glad you had a good stay and look for you next year. FYI - We just installed a new GE microwave.
Review of Townhouse
I stayed at the property from 7/7-7/13, the property was clean. This property advertised for $157 but i was charged $165. When i asked about the difference i was told that the site gives estimates, i let it go because it was only $8 per day more. Once we arrived we realized that the tv in the master bedroom didn't work. We have asked if the townhouse came with toilet paper, garbage bags etc and we were told just bring personal items. The party consisted of 2 adults, 2 seniors and a 6 yr old. By the third day my daughter had to go out on the ferry to get toilet paper and on the way there Sunday morning the golf cart broke. We notified the owner and he said he will notify the mechanic but days past and the owner said he couldn't locate him. I rented this place for 3 reasons, golf cart, free ferry and proximity to the beach. I had suffered 2 strokes and is difficult for me to walk, my sister, the other senior, also has problems walking due to sciatica. This was a great inconvenience for both of us as we counted on the golf cart to be able to move around. It rained heavily during our stay so it was impossible to go anywhere without it. We called the golf cart rental on the island even though they say to make reservations 2 weeks in advance to see if they had any rentals and i got no response. I was disappointed that the owner didn't compensate us in any way for the golf cart even though that's the only way to move in the island. Two days before our departure we realized there were no string garbage bags and we made due with grocery bags. I understand that the owner doesn't visit this property maybe because it is for sale he has divorced himself from it but as a renter i trust that things in the property are as they say because we are on an island and the only way out is a ferry. If things are not as advertised it ruins the guest experience not only by going out to the mainland to shop but also by the lack of transportation. I also had some clothes ruined as the blue wash towels bleed into my clothes when doing the laundry. The toilet on the main floor has problems with the water line, it shakes horribly and makes a very loud noise when its filling up the tank. Also the couch is in very bad shape, its uncomfortable as a bed. My daughter, her husband and my grandson came from Va and my sister from Ft Lauderdale, i wanted to give them an experience to remember of the island but unfortunately that didn't happened.
