Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 Bathroom townhouse directly on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico.

CLOSEST rental to the beach at Hideaway Bay

Our townhouse has the master suite upstairs with a King size bed and private full bathroom. On the main level we have the 2nd bedroom with Bunkbeds. The bunkbed offers a Full size bed over a Full size bed with a Full size pull out trundle. The second bedroom has a full bath in the adjacent hallway that can be made private by simply closing the door to the hall. The main level also has the living room with a brand new fold out double sleeper bed. The fully stocked kitchen and dining area with seating for six, create the 'great room' that is the main living area of the townhouse. The family room has a flat screen television with DirectTV service. Attached to the living area is a screened in porch with table and chairs that looks directly out onto the beach. At the end of the day relax on the screened patio to watch the most beautiful sunsets on Florida's west coast. Our unit is the CLOSEST rental to the beach in all of Hideaway Bay Beach Club with island decor just recently redecorated in 2014.

Below the main level is an enclosed storage area that houses the golf cart, charcoal grill, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach toys, kayak and many more island friendly items for your enjoyment. The lower level also has an outdoor shower and wash area. It is very popular to enjoy the shade that is offered under the unit to relax and wind down at the end of the day. After the sun goes down enjoy a movie or play a board game with your family from the large library.

Spend your vacation on a boat access ONLY island. No bridges, cars, malls...(no commercial interest) distinctly different, by design. No high-rises, OLD FLORIDA... the last of it's kind. Catch our private Ferry to shuttle you across the ICW to the pristine Little Gasparilla Island. (Named for the legendary...Jose' Gaspar the infamous pirate) This island is for those that want to 'GET AWAY FROM IT ALL' This 7 mile island is known worldwide for the spectacular shells that wash up daily. On a typical day walking the beach you may only encounter a few other people. One third of the island is a State Park so the density on the island is extremely low.

Enjoy your day walking on the beach, basking in the sun, taking a golf cart ride around the island to see the eclectic historic homes and beach cottages. Make friends with all of the critters that call the island home.... Osprey, Gopher tortoise, Great Blue Heron, beach crabs, sand pipers, and just off shore, the world's best Tarpon fishing as well as Red Fish and Snook. A very short walk to the beach is an evening ritual on the island to watch the sun set slowly into the horizon. The darkness of the island will then give way to some of the best star gazing that city dwellers will ever see. There is practically no light pollution on the island. Some may even be lucky enough to witness the magnificent Loggerhead Turtles laying their eggs.

A short five minute ride back to the mainland on our Ferry will bring you within a half mile of the causeway to the luxurious island of Boca Grande, a popular vacation spot for the rich and famous. (former presidents, movie stars, recording artist (Rock & country), film producers, Corporate moguls ... you never know who you will see) Fine dining, shopping and sightseeing await you there.

Paradise, heaven on earth, island life, Hideaway Bay... by any name, it is a vacation you will want to return to as soon as you are able.

UNLESS OTHERWISE ARRANGED:

Check out ..... leave the island on the 10:00 am ferry

Check in........arrive on the island on the 4:00pm ferry

About Debbie Munholand

We live in Sarasota, just about 45 minute from the island. We live the hectic life and were looking for a place on the water that we could take our family, totally away from the hustle and bustle of running our family business. We spent almost every weekend on the island when our daughter was young. It was very special to us, because there were no distractions and we could simply 'be a family'. We shelled, snorkeled, boated and fished during the day and at night we played cards, boardgames or watched a movie that we had been wanting to see. It 'forced' us to be a family.

Some of the best memories of our lives are from weekends on Little Gasparilla Island. We would not change a thing. Our daughter is now grown with children of her own, and she relishes taking her family there to relive her childhood memories.

We invite you and your family to begin a tradition of just simply 'being a family' together in our family's island paradise.

Debbie Munholand purchased this condo in 1991

Why Debbie Munholand chose Placida

Hideaway Bay Beach Club is unique in that we maintain our own private ferry to and from the island. ALL the other residents on the island must provide their own transportation to and from the island. This was a BIG plus for us.

There are only a handful of boat access islands left in FL, that only allow golf cart traffic. We saw it as a 'laid back' type of old Florida that is so very rare these days. Flip flops, shorts, bathing suits, straw hats is the style of the day.... everyday. There's nothing hoity-toity about our little island.

What makes this condo unique

Our private Ferry is free for your use during your entire stay. We have a large heated pool that all guests are welcome to use. Beach chairs, umbrellas, golf cart, beach games, and a large selection of videos are all there for your enjoyment. Our well maintained Golf Cart with a lift kit is free for your use during your vacation, by licensed drivers. We provide the golf cart to you as a convenience. PLEASE WASH IT before you put it away when you leave.

The perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in G2! The condo was perfect for our family and had everything that we needed. It was awesome being such a short distance from the ocean, and we loved having the pool & golf cart to use as well! We found amazing shells, sharks teeth & sand dollars every day on the beach! Debbie was great to work with!!! She went out of her way to make sure all of our questions were answered & that we had the best vacation! We would definitely recommend her place to others & look forward to staying there again! It was a vacation full of wonderful memories!

Thanks again,

Lori, James, Lilly, Emma & Trip Ward

A little island paradise

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit. It was just too short. Ferry ride and walk to condo were very reasonable (saw dolphins) with all the food and luggage (carts are provided). Amenities were abundant from everything in the kitchen to all the beach supplies you could ask for. So basically pack your clothes and food. Relax on the front porch and enjoy the amazing sunset and ocean views. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Will be looking forward to visiting again. Debbie communicated everything you needed to know and very responsive to all my questions.

Fantastic place with an friendly, helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

As a single dad taking my kids on vacation i was a bit stressed. However, the owner gave me all the info I needed to get there. I’ve stayed on the island 4 years in a row now and when we got to this condo I was completely impressed. Definitely the nicest one I’ve stayed in yet. Not that the others were bad. This one has a view and great location. Inside is amazingly decorated and has more than what you need. Myself and my kids enjoyed it and our neighbors. Only downside was it was red tide still for the first couple of days. The owner told me it was ahead of time and we didn’t care. It really wasn’t bad and was gone the third day. We will definitely be booking this place again next year at the same time if the owner will have us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review, Loyd. I’m so glad that Mother Nature took her red tide back out to sea for the 2nd half of your vacation . I hope that your sons caught some fish ... my little girls were tickled to get their note.... please come again ... You were the perfect guest ! Kind regards, Debbie

Incredible experience!

  • 5 of 5

So much to say about this incredible rental. From the perfect location to the comfortable beds!

The condo had everything we needed for our week, super well stocked. Also immaculately clean. The decor was even fun, but tasteful.

Debbie was more than helpful and was happy to answer any if my many questions.

LGI beach was beautiful and uncrowded, abundance of shells and sharks teeth.

We can't wait to go back next year!!!
