Exactly as described!
My wife and I truly enjoyed the quiet getaway. Island life right here in the States. We specifically came during the "off" season and were rewarded with no crowds. Highly recommended!
Paradise, as advertised!
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!)
Thank you for the positive and kind review. So glad you enjoyed the island and condo, I hope you are able to make another visit soon!
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.
Thank you for the review, I"m so glad you enjoyed it, hope you will return soon!
Great adventure with tranquil island setting to enjoy the beautiful beach on the Gulf
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.
Thank you for your kind review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the uniqueness of the island, and that you will be coming back! I appreciate your positive comments pertaining to this little piece of paradise.
A perfect way to relax
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.
Thank you so much for your detailed review, it is very appreciated! I am so glad you were able to experience this piece of paradise, and enjoy it to the extreme. We look forward to your return!
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.
Thank you for your review, I greatly appreciate your positive input. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy this unique and peaceful island! I hope you will make a return visit to our condo.
