About Rebecca or Kristin
After many years of family vacations on Little Gasparilla, we are now enjoying life as year-round residents with several properties on the island.
Rebecca or Kristin purchased this House in 2011
Why Rebecca or Kristin chose Placida
This charming Carribean-style property is just a short walk from our main house on the quiet and 'remote' north end of the island adjacent to the nature preserve. Recently rebuilt, it allows us to provide our guests an extra bit of privacy and comfort.
What makes this House unique
Quiet, secluded location on a great get-away island. Beautiful surroundings. Full water views. Easy-access boat dock and kayak launch right at edge of the front deck. House is built almost on ground level, not elevated on pilings, so there are very few stairs. Bay front, with boardwalk to the beach about 800 ft away.

Loved it all!
We loved everything about our time in the Boat House.
Rebecca was an incredible host that went above and beyond in every way and made sure our stay was exceptional.
The house is beautiful and has everything you need. The toys were fabulous and the beach is beautiful.
This listing is a jewel.
Everything about this house is perfect. It has everything you need to relax and enjoy the beautiful and quiet surroundings. Very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Loved being able to enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset every day.
Love, love, love this place!
We love staying here! The house is beautiful and the amenities are awesome!! This place has everything you could possibly need! The owners are the nicest people! We have stayed here two years in a row and will be back many times! Just can't say enough good things!
Better than advertised
Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Impressive property. Impossible not to relax.
Sublime Experience Bayside
My husband and I adore the Boathouse! We have stayed here on multiple occasions and it always feels like home-- a pristine, gorgeous home in paradise. The sleek design of the house feels clean, sophisticated and luxurious while the carefully selected furniture is comfortable and functional. The front porch is spacious and sits RIGHT on the water, offering beautiful views and a cool breeze any time of year. We love staying here as a couple or with close friends or family-- either way there is plenty of space to move around and an abundance of privacy.
The owners are friendly and accommodating, always just a phone call away if a need presents itself, though they have ensured the house has everything a guest could possibly need already in place! In addition to tons of fun toys and lounging equipment for beach days, they also provide kayaks, SUP boards and canoes just steps away from the Boathouse that can be used to explore the bay. During our recent visit, my husband and I used the kayaks to follow (from a safe distance) a small family of manatees across the bay. It was a magical experience! An array of wildlife, including dolphins and turtles, can always be found at Little Gasparilla Island.
We our biding our time until we have the opportunity to visit again! We will be back to the Boathouse as soon as we can!
Awesome place!! Has everything you need!! We will be back
This home is one of three on the property. It has numerous amenities, plenty of exciting things to do from sitting on the beach to kayaking, fishing on your private dock, bistro area where family and friends can sit and talk. Very well decorated in a nautical theme! Phenomenal rainwater storage system. It was an amazing and relaxing experience!!
Little Gasparilla Island and the surrounding area remain a largely unspoiled part of Florida where the principal attractions are activities associated with its wonderful beaches, protected waters and natural parklands, as well as world-class sportfishing. While almost all imaginable Florida-type vacation activities (golf, tennis, theme parks, restaurants, cinemas, spas, museums, parasailing, etc.) are available somewhere on the nearby mainland, Little Gasparilla Island itself is free of any commercial development (only residences) and has no bridge connecting it to the mainland.
Guests enjoying this unique property have access to the its kayaks, fir pit, grill area, basic fishing gear and beach gear, and other recreational equipment.
Contact information can be provided for local vendors who provide boat and jet ski rentals, golf cart rentals, on-site or on-island massages, art and photography lessons, guided fishing trips, guided nature walks, sailing, boating, and kayaking excursions, sea plane tours, etc.
We encourage our extended-stay guests to take advantage of boat or jet ski rentals which allow further exploration of some of Florida's best backwaters, waterfront restaurants, and the quaint island resort villages of Boca Grande, Useppa, Manasota Key, and Captiva. Other nearby towns on the mainland that offer dining and shopping choices include Englewood, Venice, North Port, Punta Gorda, and Port Charlotte, as well as Naples, Sarasota, and Tampa. Orlando and it's mega-attractions are about 3 hours drive from our marina.
