Overview

Placida Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Ride the elevator up from the ground to the living floor. Glass dining room and sitting room bring in lots of light with views of the greenery surrounding the tree house. Go to the top deck from which you can enjoy the spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico to the West, Charlotte Harbor to the East and Gasparilla Lake to the North.

Entertain friends and family in the 480 Sq Ft, screened lanai. The 15 foot bar and gas grilling area will be the centers of activity. Two sinks, refrigerator and dish washer make serving food fun and easy.

Take advantage of all the luxuries of the Boca Grande Club - 2 swimming pools, tennis courts, exercise facilities, gourmet dinning, and best of all, the long shell strewn beach, an easy 75 yard walk away all through the Club - no roads to cross.

During the summer, the Boca Grande Community Center has day camps from the Traditional to the Adventurous. Check them out at http://www.friendsofbocagrande.org/summer-camp

If you need to work for a few minutes, the office area has a printer with scanning and WiFi.

We look forward to hearing your questions.

About Patience Rockey

We have purchased this home for our retirement. Having a lot of fun renovating it with elevator and closets. Furnishing it with Victorian pieces and odds and ends of antiques from our home.

During those times of year when we are at our Wisconsin lakeside home or traveling, we are pleased to be able to share the Tree House with others.

Patience Rockey purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Patience Rockey chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We have been wintering in Boca Grande for the past 20 years. We love the quiet community, the beautiful beaches and the outstanding restaurants. The tennis, Pilates and social activities drew us to the Boca Grande Club.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Patience,

Just wanted to send you a note that my family and I had a great two week stay at Boca Grande. The house was awesome and gave us the room we needed. The elevator is a lifesaver for my mom and it was so much easier for her this summer than last when we stayed in one of the condos near the pool. We appreciate your hospitality and the accommodations. Thanks so much.

Wonderful Weekend Getway

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had the pleasure of staying in " The Treehouse" this past weekend. This was our 1st time to Boca Grande and it was perfect. We really enjoyed both the Boca Grande Club and the "Treehouse". The home had plenty of space for our family of 6 with beds for all 4 kids without anybody needing to share a bed. Great family Resort with resort pool, hot tubs, tennis courts, playground for the little ones and a gorgeous beach. Perfect getaway for either a long weekend or a whole week. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us and we will see you again next summer.

Great location for a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family, 2 daughters and their husbands, and my wife are first time vacationers to this location. In the past we stayed further north on the west coast of Florida. During the Christmas/ New Years period the west coast of Florida can be very crowded. This location on Boca Grande is very quite with very low traffic congestion. The home is part of club complex with great amenity's, privacy, and security. The home was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the roof top which is great for happy hour while the sun sets over the gulf. Other reviewers have mentioned many of the lovely aspects of this home, so I will simply say: we will be back

The Treehouse is Great

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Boca Grande for about 15 years and have stayed in several different and very nice houses. This was our favorite for several reasons. Everything in the house was in great shape. The Boca Grande Club is very nice and all the staff were very friendly. The elevator is really nice to have so we didn't have to carry all of our heavy bags up and down the stairs. Having arthritis myself, I found it very helpful. There is a nice pool a short walk away and the beach is also very close.

We enjoyed the restaurant and the food was excellent.

Overall this is a great house and would be our first choice for future stays on the island.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Boca Grande almost every summer for more than 30 years, since before our sons were born. Our stay at the Tree House was one of our best vacations yet. The Tree House is lovingly decorated and has a true family feel. It's spacious with plenty of nooks and crannies if, with a full house, you want a little escape. We like to cook, so the well-appointed kitchen was ideal. And we all enjoyed gathering on the Crow's Nest to watch sunsets. The ground-level porch, with its own wet bar, grill and fridge, is a real bonus, too. We had a ball and are looking forward to a return visit.
