About Sari & Glen Schroeder

Glen (Minnesota) & Sari (Navy Brat, California & Key West. Sari's parents were good friends with Bob & Frankie Pelfrey (the original golf cart shop owners). The house on the beach was going up for auction, so we made the trip to look at it with my parents.They decided not to bid on it, so we did! Much to our surprise they accepted our offer and we had 60 days to sell our home in St.Pete, move Glen's business and give my job notice. All said and done we moved in on October 31,1996.We lived in the house for 12 years, until we built a home on the mainland and we now are at the island when it is not rented.Glen still works on the island as a contractor.

Sari & Glen Schroeder purchased this house in 1996

Why Sari & Glen Schroeder chose Placida

We had never been to LGI prior to this trip. We had heard many stories from my parents and the Pelfrey's.Undeveloped, old florida,fishing,swimming, boating,shelling,food never tastes as good as it does on the island, and more. We met Alice Traverse on the golf cart, drove to the house,fell in love with the view and the beach & privacy. What a high!!! We could only be so LUCKY & BLESSED TO LIVE HERE. And Lucky & BLESSED we were and still are.WE LOVE SHARING OUR HOME WITH ALL OF YOU AND HOPE IT BRINGS YOU THE SAME PEACE AND SERENITY WE FIND THERE.

What makes this house unique

THERE IS NO BETTER DAWN WHEN THE SUN COMES UP FROM OUR DECK. NO BETTER DUSK THEN WHEN THE SUN SETS INTO THE GULF. MAYBE EVEN A GREEN FLASH. ELECTRIFYING THUNDERSTORMS. BEING ONE WITH THE SEA AND SAND.THE KIDS ARE CLOSE WHILE YOUR PREPARING MEALS, JUST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS OR LOOK OUT THE WINDOW.YOU MIGHT EVEN SEE A SEA TURTLE NESTING,MANATEES SWIMMING BY ,DOLPHINS PLAYING AND THE SNOOKS TEASING YOU RIGHT OFF THE BALCONY.AND MEMORIES, OH SO MANY MEMORIES. MAKE THEM YOUR OWN AND FALL IN LOVE WITH PARADISE.

If you need to get away from the rat race visit LGI. Best ocean views on the island, eating on the deck, beach combing, shells, sharks teeth, kayaking, swimming, exploring the island . We will be back !

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to LGI and we could not have picked a more perfect place to stay. It was an experience like no other to get up every morning and see nothing but ocean and then to end our day on the upper deck to watch another beautiful sunset. We loved every single minute of our trip and can't wait to come back to this little slice of paradise!

The house is very well appointed with anything that you would need and even has books/games/tv for the rainy days. They have an outdoor shower, a gas grill, beach chairs and even a kayak to use. (I had a hard time getting my husband out of this because he had such a great time kayaking around the island and bay!) Glen met up with us on our first day there and made himself available to us if we had any issues with the house (which we did not).

I was a little anxious about the water taxi based on other reviews that I had read but it was all for naught. They were great. Very helpful and willing to work with us and the times that we needed for getting on and off of the island.

If you are looking for a very laid back, low key beach vacation in a house with an amazing location, this is the place for you! I know that we can't wait to come back!

beautiful house but golf kart 2 thumbs down!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the house very much but I wanted this house because it came with golf kart which broke down on us, I get it things go wrong. but after the first call to sari, it took me 3 more calls to get her to answer, so we were with no kart for almost 2 days, then it would not hold charge for long, we could not even drive to end or even close to end of island or it would die on us. which I believe should be refunded back to me. house was great but the kart was not working properly at all.
