About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6 Condo With Bay Views Near The Gulf Of Mexico

Our condo is the perfect place to get away for a week or for a month. Little Gasparilla Island is a private and secluded barrier island. It is only accessible by boat or ferry. There are no roads or traffic on the island. You can walk miles on the white sandy beaches, as you look for shells, sharks teeth or sand dollars. Enjoy nature and catch a glimpse of dolphins, manatees, turtles, pelicans and other wildlife. The beautiful, serene sunsets will take your breath away. Take a dip in our heated community pool or a free ride to the mainland on the ferry. If you have a boat that is 21.5 feet for smaller, then dock it at our community dock slip. There are 33 dock slips on a first come basis.

Our condo is 3 stories high and has fairly new furnishings. When you arrive to our unit, you will be on the ground floor. This outdoor living area has comfortable chairs, a dining table with seating for four, 2 ceiling fans and a radio/cd player to enjoy your favorite music. This space is wonderful to enjoy during the day or to relax at night by the soft glow of lights, which surround our unit. Enjoy the pretty flowering plants and the variety of orchids, which add to that Florida tropical feel. There is a handy table which folds down, making it convenient to use when grilling or to use as a buffet when dining outdoors. In addition, there is garage which houses our golf cart, charcoal grill, beach chairs & a beach umbrella. The golf cart is available for our renters to use. Please note that our golf cart is provided as a courtesy only with the rental of the condo. If the golf cart happens to break during your stay we cannot provide a replacement cart.

As you go up the stairs, you will enter the main living area. The second floor is comprised of the living room, kitchen, master bedroom, bathroom and screened in lanai. The living room is equipped with a 47' LED HD Smart Television which has Direct TV Satellite along with a DVD player & an assortment of DVD's for the whole family to enjoy. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances. It is equipped with a microwave, dish washer, coffee maker, blender, crock pot and everything needed for cooking & serving. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a 42' LED HD Smart Television, blu-ray player and digital satellite. The screened in porch has a round table and 4 chairs and a closet with a full-sized washer & dryer and space for storage.

As you go up the spiral staircase, you will be on the third level. There you will find 2 queen size beds, a dresser with a 42' LED HD television, blu-ray player and digital satellite on it. The closed loft had its own bathroom and closet. There is a nice seating area with baskets containing board games for the kids to play. From the loft area, you can enjoy the amazing views of the bay.

Shells and Shark Teeth

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Little Gasparilla Island was wonderful! We loved the quiet and peacefulness of the island. The people we met were friendly and informative.

The condo was so comfortable and clean.

We swam in the (heated 👍?) pool, walked the beach everyday, went fishing and saw the local sites including a trip to the lighthouse on Boca Grande.

What a wonderful spot for a low key vacation!

About Maria

My husband and I have been married for over 25 years and we have three wonderful boys. We grew up in Dade County Florida and when we got married we moved to Broward County Florida.

Maria purchased this condo in 2014

Why Maria chose Placida

I heard about Little Gasparilla Island after watching an episode on HGTV in May 2014. We booked a vacation and stayed here for week in August 2014. This place is so relaxing and everyone is so friendlly. My boys loved fishing, going to the beach and exploring the island on golf carts. We loved it so much we started looking for a place for us. In November 2014 we purchased our property which we consider a slice of heaven.

What makes this condo unique

My family loves this condo for several reasons. My husband and the boys love to fish. There are so many places on the island to fish. You can fish from the docks, beach or take a boat out to the ocean. I love the tranquility and peace of mind I feel here at LGI(Little Gasparilla Island). When the boys are not fishing, they are swimming or riding around the island on our golf car. The people on the island are so friendly. I love sitting on the beach just listening to the ocean waves or looking at the birds. I find I can truly relax here and disconnect from the hussle and bussle of living in a large city. When I want to go shopping (my favorite sport), I simply ride the ferry to the mainland and off I go. Once you experience Little Gasparilla Island, you will fall in love with it just as my husband and I did.
