                                                            Paradise, as advertised!

                                                            scott b.

                                                            It really is paradise, and everything you see here is what you luckily get! I can only echo (and encourage you to read) all the reviews below. The owner is very polite, and her prompt responses to any questions which we had, were very helpful. Her agent too! The rate was very reasonable for this well equipped and easy to access spacious unit, beach, and nice heated pool (but please keep this as our secret!)

                                                            A great get away from it all place! lovely two bedroom, all the amenities you need. Fully equipped kitchen, spices included! From breakfast on the screened patio to the beautiful sunsets each night it is fabulous! We felt like we had our own private pool and beach. Easy ferry access to mainland but we would suggest just bringing a couple more bottles of wine and never leave.

                                                            Great adventure with tranquil island setting to enjoy the beautiful beach on the Gulf

                                                            Carol S.

                                                            We loved everything about this place. Thought we were on a deserted island for a few days, it was so quiet. This home has absolutely everything it is so well equipped. Super clean with great appliances and plenty of linens. Exactly as shown in the pictures. Not far from the beach - great shelling! We over packed. All you need is a bathing suit and pjs. We can't wait to get back there but next time we'll stay longer.

                                                            A perfect way to relax

                                                            Mark D.

                                                            4 of us stayed in the condo, and have nothing but positive comments, memories, and experiences. Comfortable and very cool (great AC!!), this was the perfect beach vacation. The bed was very good, all of the amenities delightful, and the beach is beyond belief. Any rain fell late at night or early morning, and each day was filled with blue skies, sunshine, and smooth waters. Linda was delightful to deal with, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Placida Beach - so much so, that it will now be placed into a 'regular rotation' of our vacation options.

                                                            This place is great! The condo was nicely remodeled, roomy, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The beach is gorgeous and private and the people are so welcoming. We look forward to coming back for years to come. Our only regret is that we we did not stay longer.

                                                            We loved it and are planning our next trip!

                                                            Eric L.

                                                            We had one of our best vacations as a family. LGI is a going to be a yearly trip for us from this point forward. The condo was everything we could have hoped for. It was nicely furnished and had everything that we needed. The unit was only a few steps to the beautiful beach. My kids enjoyed the fact that the beach was never crowded. We spent our days snorkeling, shelling, playing games on the beach and hunting for shark teeth. We can't wait to book our next trip!
