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!

Comfort away from home with AMAZING views!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of living space to stretch out and all the required amenities away from home. The huge pool was cool instead of like a hot tub which is a must to get relief from the Florida heat. Dock was perfect for our 24' boat. Room to park trailer with ease. We will be back!
Happy guests are what we strive for! Very glad that you and family had a nice time relaxing at our little piece of paradise. We'll look forward to seeing you again!
Sunny smiles :)

Amazing Location for Marina Hopping and Saltwater Fishing
This house had wonderful panoramic views of the Intercoastal waterway and very close boating distance to Gasparilla Marina, Boca Grande, Cayo Costa, and Captiva. This is a great location for those who love fishing and being on the water. There are boat ramps very close to the home that made docking the boat so easy. Terri and Wes have the house prepared with incidentals to make your stay convenient. There are great restaurants nearby and and a Publix less than one mile away for quick grocery shopping. We made the best of the red tide, but we had a very pleasant stay. Highly recommend!
Wonderful place to stay! Beautiful view!
Even though we battled Red Tide in the area, we still had this beautiful home and pool to spend time together with family! The home was welcoming and comfortable and was the perfect place for vacationing! Thanks so much!
Always glad to hear when family memories are made!!! We loved having you with us and look forward to your next visit :)
Best to you...

Great Vacation Home!
The owners are fantastic and helpful and everything about the house was in perfect working order. The location is amazing especially if you are boating/fishing.
Thank for your kind thoughts! We enjoyed having you and family very much! So wonderful to share our little piece of paradise with fantastic folks like you !!!
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!
How sweet! So very glad that you all enjoyed your time with us and our little village of Placida. It's hard to describe all there is to do and what a great area it is but you did it! Thank you for the kind words. Very happy that you all made some memories with your family and we hope to see you again another time :)
Thanksgiving with family
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 it....my 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.
Thank you for choosing to spend you Thanksgiving in our home. Such dear folks and great guests!!! We love it when we get the chance to have wonderful people like you and your family come to visit us.
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!!!
