About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Luxury waterfront vacation home located on the Intercoastal Waterway Marker 28 at Gasparilla Pass! With panoramic views from this two story Key West style home and deepwater dockage and lifts for two boats, this piece of paradise on beautiful Cape Haze has it all. Pristene beaches are just across the water on Boca Grande or Little Gasparilla island and Don Pedro State Park, with some of the best shelling in Florida. Fine waterfront restaurants within one mile but enjoy entertaining here and watch the breathtaking sunset while you dine. Ospreys and Manatees right outside your door to enjoy while you have your morning coffee. Fish from your own dock! Get and early Tee Time and finish your Golf Game in time to come back for a dip in the pool, then hop in your boat to hurry down to Cabbage Key for a Cheeseburger in Paradise. Explore the Lighthouse Museum in Boca Grande but, save time for some first class shopping on the Island or at Placida Villiage. Rent kayaks and explore the backwaters. Don Pedro State Park is on the barrier island just across the Intercoastal Waterway to the North. Dance the night away to live entertainment featured at most of the waterfront restaurants or simply watch the stars on your top deck while sipping your favorite beverage. Deep sea fishing charters leave daily from the Placida Villiage and Boca Grande. Our waters are clear and turquoise for perfect snorkeling and diving. Treasures are at your fingertips! Port Charlotte offers movie theaters and more shopping. Englewood abound with antique shops and cafes. Venice is just north and offers more exploring opportunities! This area has serenity in the private community of Cape Haze but, just a stone's throw away from almost anything your heart desires!!!

About Teri Rigsby

We moved to Cape Haze in 2004 and love it here! We are native Floridians and "water people". Since we live in this community we are able to provide constant care of our vacation rental homes and their guests. Remodeling, decorating and making our homes unique has been a great experience for us and we continue to down time making sure they are perfect for the next season!

Teri Rigsby purchased this house in 2012

Why Teri Rigsby chose Placida

This home, which we lovingly call Hemingway House, has an open floor plan, 3 stories, an elevator, mexican tile floors like the courtyard in Mallory Square in Key West, and is the perfect tropical getaway. It is facing the ICW at Marker 28 and has a sunset beyond belief. It doesn't get any better than this!

What makes this house unique

With decks on every floor and an Island kitchen and BBQ area down by the heated saltwater pool, this home is a fantastic place to unwind and enjoy the tropics. Watching Sunset while floating in the pool as you sip a cocktail from your poolside Tiki Bar is perfection! Fish from your dock, clean them at the cleaning table, then cook them on the BBQ grill. Watch dolphin and manatees from your dock each day. Kayak to the beach, bike the neighborhood, take a day trip to Boca Grande to much to see and do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent a week at this fantastic house. It is by far, the best VRBO house we have stayed in. The owners, Teri and Wes have done a marvelous job on the house, and were very accomodating. We enjoyed exploring the area as much as we did watching the wildlife from the deck of the house. Every thing mentioned in the VRBO listing is absolutely true! Thanks for a great time! Matt and Mimi
