Overview

Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms 2 baths on the beach

Newly updated with gorgeous beach views, our couple's condo is the perfect place to get away for long or short stays on the island.

We are selling the condo in August, so we are offering a special discounted rate to rent it out as much as possible before then!

Vast stretches of white sand beaches with relatively few people. Natural setting. No charge for unlimited use of the condo association's pedestrian ferry (including mainland parking) and pool. Master bedroom (queen) with private shower and screened lanai. Second bedroom (full), bath, living area (with queen pull-out) and a second screened lanai, all on one level. Unit is only for one or two couples, but a fifth guest could stay for a night or two - we know sometimes people have friends in the area that like to check out our wonderful island! We have great views of the beach and spectacular sunsets from two private lanais, master bedroom and living area. The boardwalk through the dunes is conveniently right outside the door, and the heated pool right next door. Tile floors, new granite countertops, new appliances, rugs, top quality bed and spa towels and bath linens. A first-class condo, with lots of extras like a cappuccino maker and satellite Direct TV with flatscreen and stereo.

We want to spoil you while you strengthen your marriage and relax in a quiet island paradise. This unit has been one of the most requested rental properties on the island, even prior to the recent upgrades. Clean, sumptuous and ready for your special retreat. Enjoy crystal clear warm Gulf waters, shelling, and wonderful island breezes!

PAYMENT:

We require two checks up front. One is your security deposit (Which will not be cashed, but will be returned to you as long as there is no damage to the property.) The other is at least half of the rental amount. The remainder may be paid two weeks prior to arrival.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

The security deposit is fully refundable at any time if your trip is cancelled. The security deposit is also fully refundable if you depart early, provided that there is no damage to the property.

Any unused portion of your rental fee is fully refundable if your cancellation or early departure is due to hurricane or Red Tide.

Rent is 25% refundable 15-30 days before check-in. Rent is not refundable within 15 days of check-in.

PARKING:

You will park your car on the mainland in the secure condo development that is the sister condo grouping of our island complex. Here is the address:

Placida Harbour

11000 Placida Road

Placida, FL 33946

You will drive into the entrance of the Placida Harbour condos. When you get to the gate, tell the guard your name (I will have given it to him before your arrival.) After you enter the gate, you will drive straight ahead to where you can unload your groceries, etc into wheelbarrows and onto the condo association ferry. You can then park your car (the guard will tell you where). If for some reason you get lost or need additional directions, the guard house phone number is: 941-697-0115. The guard is there from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm.

ISLAND FERRY:

You will need to call the ferry captain at least one hour before you think you will arrive at Placida Harbour so he can be there to meet you. He runs on request at the top of each hour from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, Friday and Saturday he runs until 9:00 pm, but you must call him before 5:00 pm to schedule a night run. The ferry captain's name is Bill and he can be reached at 941-662-1218. All ferry rides are free, and you may ride as often as you wish. It is customary to tip the captain if he helps you with your luggage. Make sure you arrive at Placida Harbour about 15 minutes before departure time so you can unload, etc.

The ferry will take you across the bay to the island. It is about 500 feet from the dock to the unit you will be staying in. Just follow the path straight ahead, cross the little dirt road, and continue straight until you get to building 5 on the beach, to the right of the swimming pool complex. Our unit is # 504, and it will be left unlocked for you. I will leave the condo key and the security card that opens both the swimming pool gate and the mainland parking gate on the kitchen counter.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Property owner is easy to work with. Condo was amazing for the price. Beach view, nicely decorated, newer appearance inside, access to a pool, and were able to dock our boat. Grounds are nice compared to others in the area. My only complaint is 2nd bathroom is small but it's better than no shower or toilet at all. Perfect for the women to use. Highly recommend it!!

A little bit of Heaven on Little Gasparilla Island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this beautiful condo! The ocean views surpassed our expectations! The condo was equipped with everything we needed from spices to cookware. It was fun to decide which screened in patio we would sit on to enjoy the spectacular views! The inside furniture were all comfy. Our days began with coffee on the patio and then walks on the beach and then just sunbathing and looking for unique shells and sand dollars. What more could you ask for?? We only went out twice to eat and enjoyed cooking in our kitchen. Loved the ferry ride and they were very accommodating. At night we would walk on the boardwalk right outside our door to take pictures of the sunset and sip on wine. The condo was very clean. The owners communicated with me for months before our arrival. They quickly answered any questions I had and even recommended restaurants in the area. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a quiet vacation, away from the maddening crowds!

Perfect location, best views, quiet condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week's stay! This condo has the best view of all! We could watch dolphins swimming from the Master bed! Quiet, extremely clean, beautifully decorated. It has everything you need down to the littlest detail and even a washer & dryer. Our two favorite spots in the condo were the two chaise lounges in the living room and sitting out on the screened in lanai. With two screened in lanais, we opened up all the doors and enjoyed the warm island breeze. We love Little Gasparilla Island. You feel like you have the beach to yourself. Great shelling, especially sand dollars and petrified shark's teeth. Great for birding and dolphin watching. The ferry makes it so easy to get back and forth. Really recommend shopping before you come at the Publix in Port Charlotte if coming from the airport/south. Much bigger selection than the Publix in Placida. LGI is like being on a deserted island yet close to restaurants and shopping if needed. Oh, and don't forget every night to watch the fabulous sunsets. They are different every time. The owners are just lovely people, so easy to work with, such quick responses to any questions or requests. We plan to return!

Bliss at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are needing respite, recreation, or for reel time with a rod , this two bedroom two bath condo is everything that the doctor ordered. No detail was overlooked in furnishing this cozy condo. Luxury bedding , lush towels, wine glasses , plastic tumblers for the beach , beautiful dishes and great cutlery, plush furniture, all exquisitely selected. A fantastic second floor unit that overlooks the gulf and is only steps away from the pool. I came here to escape and returned refreshed, inspired, sun-kissed, and ready to face the world again. Little Gasparilla island is one of the best kept secrets in Florida easy to access by boat or ferry, yet secluded enough to make you feel like you're 1,000,000 miles away.

Couldnt have chosen a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved everything about our stay on the Island. The condo was everything we hoped it would be....comfortable, clean, well decorated with truly amazing views of the water and less than a short walk to the beach. My children who were staying at other condos nearby could not believe the beautiful view we had. We loved visiting the Island Chapel for Easter Sunday Service. We made use of the barbeque grill and also enjoyed the pool. The owners of this condo could not have been more helpful and accommodating and we truly thank them for making our stay a true delight. Would love to visit again!

Outstanding stay during our visit!

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca and her husband were friendly hosts. The condo was wonderful with quite surroundings and beautiful views. Everyone was extremely friendly and the Ferry Captain and his vessel to and from the island were friendly, professional, reliable and convenient. Romantic beach, well kept pool, out-door grille and board-walks added to the fun and adventure. Asbolutely will be our next vacation in Florida...loved every little detail.

LGI is a bridge-less barrier island with no commercial enterprises and no high-rises, no roads and no cars, and no T-Shirt shops or bars. All shopping, including groceries, is done on the mainland. It is a very quiet, natural setting with low-density residential development (mainly single family vacation homes). Placida Beach Condominium is an upscale 30-unit complex with a larger sister complex on the nearby mainland.

Renting a car at the airport for your stay is recommended because the weekly rental is often cheaper than hiring a taxi to get back and forth, plus it provides you the flexibility of visiting local attractions on the mainland during your stay.
