About Kim

This is kind of a family adventure. My grandmother, mom, husband, me, and my two children are all involved with the beach house. We all live in Port Charlotte, Florida. My mom and Grammy just moved down from Sarasota, Fl to be closer to us. They are now 2 streets away! We decided to purchase this house so we can make great memories! We have already and hope you do to!

Kim purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim chose Placida

Little Gasparilla Island is very unique. It is very private and very secluded! I love that you don't hear any car horns or traffic. You are completely surrounded by nature. I think that is what makes this island so special!

What makes this house unique

The views from the master bedroom are 'magical!' The room color matches the Gulf waters , which you can see views from all areas of the beach. Nothing better than hearing the waves crash all night and watching beautiful sunsets every evening!

Island paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! If you’ve ever wanted to own an island this is pretty close! Nothing to worry about but which of the amazing shells on the beach needs to come home with you. The screened in porch is the perfect place to read and relax! Everything you need is provided!

Amazing getaway from reality

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect had all the things you might have forgotten to pack. The views were amazing, listening to the soft breaking of waves all night was peaceful. Incredibly friendly neighbors let us use their golf cart since there were none to be had at rental shop. Nature at its finest, birds, sea turtles, fish, and all on native island. House comes with Dockage if you bring your own boat. Best beds I have ever experienced in a vacation rental or hotel. Outdoor shower was a great amenity. If you are looking for a great place to escape reality this is the place. My children never even missed that we took away the electronics. Few recommendations go visit Cabbage Key for lunch, rumored to be the inspiration for "Cheesburger in Paradise". LGI was quiet safe and relaxing Now wife now wants to buy a place here to live in full time. Kim Thank You for sharing your home with my Family we will definitely be back soon.

Serious Relaxation for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with my daughter and her husband, spent a glorious week at La Te Da. Thank you Kim and family!! We rate it as one of the calmest, most enjoyable times we've spent together. From fishing on both beach and dock, to hours of beach walking and shelling we enjoyed every minute. The lanai was perfect for dining, reading, and sorting through shells (I read 3 books!). We rented a golf cart, though we could have lived without it. Midweek we took Emmett's water taxi back to the mainland and explored Boca Grande, bought a few more groceries, and restocked our libations.

The house was decorated in simple, beach cottage style--lovely. The beds were especially comfy. A special bonus was the variety of condiments and supplies stocked in the cupboards and refrigerator. We met neighbors on both sides and discovered island shop in a home on the north end of the residential area, as well as the island's lending library.

The outdoor shower was exquisite. Something about the sound of the surf. Let me sum it up our stay in a word: Perfect.

A view of a lifetime on the island!

  • 5 of 5

The freshly painted home with 3 decks overlooking the gulf was awesome! Sunsets of every color and super quiet to enjoy outside of the hustle and bustle of regular life. My dog could not get enough.

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a FANTASTIC time at La Te Da! The home was exactly as shown....very comfortable, well equipped and right on the beach. Kim was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating. She went out of her way to ensure that every expectation was met. The island information that she provided to us in advance of the trip, made the trip a smooth transition from the mainland to the island. We enjoyed a very peaceful and memorable trip!

The home was truly beachfront and very comfortable. The kitchen appliances are actually stainless steel - nicer than shown in the existing images. The views from the master bedroom and the upstairs deck, are priceless. There is nothing better than sitting on the upper deck, having a drink and soaking in the sun and the extended beach views. I really appreciated the fact that the home was more than adequately supplied with linen, towels, dishes, kitchen cookware, beach chairs, etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed eating dinner on the screened in porch, grilling on the deck, reading in the lounge chairs and watching the sunset....very special! Personally, I enjoyed watching the dolphins, manatee, gopher turtles, numerous variety of birds and fish on a daily basis. The shelling on the beach has to be the best in Florida.

Birthday celebration!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to do something memorable for both of our father's 80th birthdays which both happen to be in August. We rented La Te Da for the week with all of our parents and had an awesome time. We spent every morning out on the deck drinking our coffee and enjoying the beach view and every evening taking breathtaking photos of the sunsets. We went fishing, shelling, swimming (manatee swam right in front of us!) and just plain relaxing. We all really enjoyed the week spending time with each other and making memories at this beautiful place! We will definitely plan another trip there.
