About Teri Rigsby

Happily, we own several vacation rental homes in this wonderful community on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Our home is here also, just a block away and we have loved this part of Florida for many, many years. It's too early for us to retire so we are fortunate to have the best of both worlds! We purchased this Florida Jewel last month and spent that time re-decorating, resurfacing the pool and preparing it for you to enjoy!!! The view is breathtaking and if all you wish to do is grab a glass of wine or cup of coffee and relax in the pool or Florida Room...this is the place! Ah, but there is so much more. We must say that we have been enjoying it ourselves!

Teri Rigsby purchased this house in 2015

Why Teri Rigsby chose Placida

With one of the best views on Cape Haze, it was not a difficult decision to purchase this home. It is ground level and easy to get around in. Has most handicap comforts and is pet friendly. It is wonderful if you want to be inside in a climate controlled area or outdoors in the Florida breeze. Warm and wonderful in the winter, with Southern Expose on the swimming pool, dock and panoramic glass Florida Room. It truly has everything!

What makes this house unique

Morning coffee or a glass of wine for sunset from the privacy of your bedroom, while watching the Dolphins feed and the boats go by is a rare treat. Same view from the waterside queen bedroom! Great place for couples to share or family gatherings. No need to go anywhere once you are here but if you want, this home is located close to just about everything you could ask for on a Florida Vacation!

I hope to stay at this home again- great views, quiet neighborhood, beautiful inside and out. We loved the layout- very spacious- the pictures do not give it justice! We saw manatees and dolphins everyday. There are so many beaches and parks just minutes away- we rented a boat and took the kids to Don Pedro Island- caught fish for supper every night on the dock. The pool was crystal clean- everything was perfect- dream come true house- loved it so much- kids cried when we left!

Thanksgiving with family

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. We were looking for a place where we could spend Thanksgiving with our family from up north. We winter in Florida from Michigan. As luck would have husbands back flared up and he was unable to be very active. The view from this house is spectacular . He was able to sit and look out the window at all the activity. There was never a time that there were not dolphins , manatee or shorebirds to look at. The beds were comfortable and the house is equipped with anything you might want. The owners are very accommodating and go out of their way to make your stay the best. We highly recommend thie Galleon and would go back in a minute.

Fabulous location, property and renters!

  • 5 of 5

Our family for 4 stayed in this rental property for 2 weeks and didn't want to leave! Teri and Wes treated us like family from the get go.It was great, we had so many options for relaxation-walking the neighborhood, the heated pool, the dock, or even inside where we collapsed from exhaustion most days! We took advantage of the dock and rented a boat. Wes was nice enough to stop over and help make sure that it was secured safely for us. Our kids loved the daily fishing on the boat and nights on the dock. We had visits from dolphin and manatee at the house and on the boat not even 1/2 a mile from the dock. The sunsets and sunrises were stunning. Even when a light bulb blew they were right over to fix it. We couldn't say enough about our stay and how much we were made to feel at home. This wasn't our first Home away experience but it was by far our best! :)

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had an amazing time in Boca Grande. Once we arrived the owners greeted us at the home and had brochures and information to all of the local hot spots. The house was beautiful with an amazing view. It was absolutely perfect for our family of ten, we had plenty of room and a amazing time. We can not wait to go back and we will make sure to stay here again.

Thanks again for the stay

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Right when we walked through the door I new we were in for a fantastic week. The first thing we saw when we looked out into the water were saw two playful Dolphins! Our stay was amazing, the house is very clean, beautiful, the owners are very friendly, and the view is absolutely fantastic. We'd wake up and watch the ocean right from our room! It's close to many restaurants and of course the beach. We loved staying here so much and we can't wait to come back next year.

Waterside Grill/Gasparilla Marina
Car: necessary

There is abundant Dolphin and Manatee viewing in the backyard of this home. Neighbors have underwater fish lights and at night the water looks like a giant aquarium! Eco tours, a ferry to the barrier islands, water taxi, bring your own boat or you may rent one for a day to go exploring. Charter fishing trips go out of Placida Fishing Village less than a mile down the road. Golf and tennis is also a few miles away. Boca Grande has great shopping, tours of the light house and museum, the Mote Marine Laboratory, breathtaking beaches, world class restaurants and much more. Rent a golf cart and tour the island! Fishing is excellent in the warm gulf water, right from our dock. Go into Englewood and out to Manasota Beach for more great restaurants, live music nightly and a fantastic sunset celebration. Too much to do to list!!!
