About Becky Blankenship

We purchased this incredible condo in 2003 before construction was complete, and were astounded by the waterview from most of the rooms in the unit, and from the large screened-in lanai. We have found this to be the perfect getaway for our family with our busy lives, just to relax or to experience all the awesome activities available in the area.

Why Becky Blankenship chose Placida

This condominium is located in beautiful Boca Vista Harbor, a complex of 5 exceptionally well-constructed condo buildings, with a wonderful clubhouse, pool, hot tub, covered grill area, and lighted tennis court, right next to a modern marina with boat and dock rentals available, near restaurants, quaint shops and kayaking. We truly can't imagine a better place to get away!!!

What makes this condo unique

For those who love to fish at any level, or those who would rather just wind down from the hectic pace of life, this is it!!! No loading your boat with all your supplies to go to an pull your car up to the convenient elevator, push the button for the 4th floor and you're there!!! Paradise found!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo is exactly as I imagined. Everything was high end. We would stay there again without a doubt and would recommend it. Best part was the view and listening to the boats. Complex is gated. Minimal traffic in area. Friendly neighbors. Very clean condo, fully stocked with bath towels, kitchen items & bedding. Even had washer & dryer with all the supplies. Beds were very comfortable. Lots of beach toys for the kids. We didn't want to leave. Owner kept great communication with us. We spent 1 day at Blind Pass Beach, went onto Boca Grande a few times and even did a nature boat excursion out of Englewood. On our rainy day, we drove to Ft Myers for some shopping & lunch. All you need is sunscreen, food & toiletries.

You will be very pleased when you enter this condo, the views are amazing! So relaxing to sit on the screened in porch and enjoy a coffee any time of the day. The condo is very clean, well maintained . The owner is so welcoming and always helpful with any questions. The pool area is very lovely and we enjoyed the hot tub too. Also great to have a garage for the care. We highly recommend staying here! Great location to Gasparilla island!

Five Stars is just not high enough!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Rarely, have we rented a villa that was so thoughtfully appointed as this. The attention to detail by the owners is incredible and we certainly appreciated having a place like this to hang our hats for our family tarpon fishing trip. The large screened lanai was a huge hit with the little ones....breakfast there each morning. The kiddos were entertained by the boats leaving the marina each morning. We are planning our next visit!!!

Experience the historic town of Boca Grande, just minutes away by car or by boat. Shop to your heart's content at nearby mall, and enjoy the many restaurants in the area. So much to do, or just relax by the pool and spa, and do nothing at all.
