Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
We have always wanted a vacation home. We stumbled upon Little Gasparilla Island on the internet and loved the concept of this barrier island with no cars. We fell in love the first time we visited the island. It truly is paradise. The sunsets are amazing. The beach is uncrowded and peaceful. It is the perfect place for us to gather as a family and decompress. Every time we leave the island our family bond is closer.
