About Terry M Portis

I have grown up fishing in this area, since the 1970s. Born and raised in Florida this was always my favorite location to vacation and fish. I have been bringing my wife and children here for the last 25 years.

Terry M Portis purchased this condo in 2013

Why Terry M Portis chose Placida

This property became available at the right time for us. We had been looking and hoping for the perfect place and this is it. It provides convenience for my family with the ferry and a great dock for me when I bring my boat.

What makes this condo unique

This island is the best of both worlds for us. Lovely, relaxing beach and great fishing.

The welcoming island.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was perfect, the island was perfect, the condo we stayed in was in great shape, comfortable and with no problems, and the golf cart was a wonderful way to explore the island. The ferry, and the ferry schedule was very convenient and took away some of the stresses we experienced in the past when staying in single houses.

I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to really get away.

Wonderful vacation retreat

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and will plan on staying again. This was my 4th vacation on Little Gasparilla Island, but my first stay in this condo. It had everything you could ask for and more! All we had to do was bring our clothes and groceries and our week on the island was complete! Terry was great during the reservation process, promptly answered my questions, and even followed up with a call after our vacation began just to make sure everything was okay. Thank you Terry for everything!

Spring Lake, MI

Well stocked condo and pleasant.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was well stocked from Terry (the owner) and the previous renters. There were plenty of paper goods, spices, laundry soap, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, cooking oil, Tupperware, some condiments, lots of pots and pans, nice dishware, wine glasses, etc. The furniture was nice, condo was bright, there were mattresses under the 2 queen beds in the nice upstairs loft for additional capacity, golf cart worked fine, the storage area had plenty of lawn chairs, floaties, children toys, a 2nd fridge, and a newer charcoal grill, etc. The view was nice of the pond and was a short walk to the pool. The pool is nice except is quite narrow and can get overrun with kids.

The air conditioning broke due to a leak. I was in contact with the owner and the AC people who were finally able to fix it after 2 visits. I was hoping to be offered a discount due to being without air conditioning for 2 days.

I would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Please accept my appologies for the air-conditioning problem. We try to keep our unit in good running order but sometimes unforeseen problems occur. We do try and repair them as soon as repair persons can come to fix them. I am glad you liked the condo and appreciate the time you took to write all of the nice comments. We hope that you will visit again.

Awesome Experience

Very Beautiful Condo! Everything you need is here! We picked up some groceries at Publix in Cape Haze, unloaded our vehicle and parked in gated lot. Easy ten minute Ferry ride to Paradise!! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The Golf Cart, Ferry and Heated Pool are included and made our vacation perfect!
