2 kitchens, 3 King 2 db, 3 Baths, Spacious Deck, Private dock, gated property
Beautiful bayfront home with a private dock, perfect for a family vacation. Located on 3 1/2 lots on LGI and remodeled in 2010. Main level has a modern, fully equipped, large kitchen with breakfast bar. Open floor plan includes kitchen, dining and living room, perfect for entertaining. The master suite has a large bath and a breathtaking view of the bay. It has an extra full size refrigerator and laundry separate from the sleeping area. French doors allow access to the upper deck from the master. There's a hammock and a bench swing on the lower deck to watch the turtles play or take a nap. The private dock has lights, power and water with multiple slips. It also has a covered, illuminated fish cleaning station with water. Great fishing right from the dock and easy access to the Gulf. Jet ski parking as well. This piece of paradise has a large open yard for outdoor activities that's fenced from the rest of the island, making it fully secluded and totally private. Spacious guest apartment includes the additional kitchen, 2 double beds and a full bath. The sparkling water and pristine sand of our beautiful gulf beach is just two minutes down the sand path. So you get the best of both worlds at our Bayfront Retreat: easy access to the great fishing in the bay, the convenience of having your boat nearby PLUS spectacular water views.....and the beautiful beaches of Little Gasparilla are just a short stroll down the sandy pathway.
Leave your car and your cares at the marina because Little Gasparilla is accessible only by water taxi! That means our beaches are uncrowded and tourists and traffic are just a mainland memory. If you are looking for a quiet tropical island to relax and unplug, Little Gasparilla is your dream vacation spot. Our "nightlife" consists of giant sea turtles laying their eggs -- our only bar is the sand bar where you can find sand dollars and shells!

About Mariah Kohl
My husband and I grew up in the Midwest. We brought our family to the beautiful gulf beaches as much as we could as they were growing up. We stumbled across Little Gasparilla Island and fell in love. We live on the gulf side of the Island full time now and love every minute of everything the island has to offer.
Mariah Kohl purchased this House in 2013
Why Mariah Kohl chose Placida
The fishing is incredible! The beach is amazing. There's nothing as secluded as this property on the island.
What makes this House unique
The dock on this property is unbelievable. You can take your morning coffee down and enjoy sunrise... or cast a line in to catch Snook, Redfish, Snapper or a Sheepshead. It's set up to handle several boats and even jet skis. The previous owner was an avid fisherman so he thought of everything to make slipping your boat, fishing, cleaning your fish and hanging out on the dock a great experience.

Wonderful place to relax!
This is an awesome place to relax, unwind and forget about life for a while! This house has it all, clean, comfortable and very spacious! We wanted for nothing. The property is large and private with plenty of room for everything. We brought our kids and our dogs, all of which had plenty of room to run around. The dock is very close to the house, making loading and unloading a breeze. The beach is just a short stroll away.
You absolutely cannot go wrong with this house! If you have a large group or just want to be able to spread out, this is the place for you! The owners, Rhonda and Leigh, are wonderful! They were there for anything we may have needed and never anything less than pleasant.
Thank you Rhonda and Leigh for sharing your beautiful home with us! This is the nicest place we've ever stayed on the island. You have an awesome slice of the pie!!!
Best and most peacefull holidays!!
Great vacation. The house is very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The beach is just steps away from the house, making the location ideal. The island is a tropical, peaceful paradise and this house is truly the gem of the island. We spent lots of time on the beach. We collected shells, swam and even saw dolphins up close! At night, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets . It was a very relaxing and calming. We can't say enough wonderful things about this house and the owners. Thank you very much Rhonda and Leigh for your great hospitality.
Better than imagined!!
What a great vacation, we booked this house for the week of new year's with my in-laws. It was perfect for us, a smaller apartment below for my in-laws and the 5 of us upstairs. The house was super clean and perfectly appointed, everything we needed was there and if it wasn't, the owners Rhonda and Lee, were more than happy to help us get it. They welcomed us to their islands new year party and made sure we felt a part of the festivities including the golf cart parade and ball drop. Kids had a great time fishing off the dock and beach they didn't want to leave!!
Nice and relaxing stay
We had a great time. The house was in very nice condition and we loved to have our dog running free around the house and on the beach. Everything went smooth and easy.
Great Family & Fishing Fun!
What a great family vacation. Our oldest son had just graduated from college so we wanted something memorable. we said before we went to LGI that our lab Gabby would have the best time...Well she certainly did, thanks for having her. If fishing and boating everyday (with the occasional laying on the beach) is your thing then this spot is perfect. Rhonda & Lee were perfect hosts and Deric & Connor providing any needed assistance. Boys fished every night from the dock and there were numerous trips to the Waterside Grill for awesome cheeseburgers. Day trips to Cabbage Key for the "Cheeseburgers in Paradise" and fishing in Boca Grande pass. Little Gasparilla is an Island so beware the first day and the last day is work, anything that comes over has to go in your boat. Also, pack lightly, you don't need anything but bathing suits and maybe a pair of shorts or two for a dinner excursion. We'll be back again!
Our whole family can't wait for your next visit! We're so glad you had a great vacation!
Excellent, relaxing vacation!
We really enjoyed our vacation in June at this beautiful property. We stayed here with another family and had plenty of room with the added bottom level. Hung out on the dock a lot and used the fish cleaning station (thanks for the shaded cleaning station!). If you want a property right on the intracoastal water with a big dock, this is for you! Owners were very kind and thoughtful. A little pricey, but we will be back!
Adjacent to the Don Pedro State Park for hiking trails. 2 minutes by golf cart to 6 miles of beach for snorkeling, sunsets, walking, swimming and beachcombing.
