Why Tim Robinson chose Placida

We fell in love with the peace and quiet, and the fishing is awesome.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy just laying in the hammock! No cars on the island. The only traffic is that of local golf carts.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful area. The cottage was very well stocked, easy to find what you needed, clean as expected. We accidentally picked 3 of the most beautiful record setting weeks possible. A small learning curve figuring out how to live on the island, but we are kayakers so going back and forth to the main land was easy. Traveling to the main land offered golf and yoga 2 of our favorite activities. Tim was very available to answer our questions,

We had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Robinson's beach house. We had everything we needed for a relaxing week at the beach. The house was clean and comfortable, very close to both the dock where we were dropped off and to the beach. A full kitchen was great. We had plenty of space and enjoyed having a smart tv to watch on the day it was rainy. Thank you!
