Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in the Midwest. We brought our family to the beautiful gulf beaches as much as we could as they were growing up. We stumbled across Little Gasparilla Island and fell in love. We live on the gulf side of the Island full time now and love every minute of everything the island has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Placida, FL, USA:
The fishing is incredible! The beach is amazing. There's nothing as secluded as this property on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The dock on this property is unbelievable. You can take your morning coffee down and enjoy sunrise... or cast a line in to catch Snook, Redfish, Snapper or a Sheepshead. It's set up to handle several boats and even jet skis. The previous owner was an avid fisherman so he thought of everything to make slipping your boat, fishing, cleaning your fish and hanging out on the dock a great experience.
