About Becky Blankenship

We purchased this incredible condo in 2003 before construction was complete, and were astounded by the waterview from most of the rooms in the unit, and from the large screened-in lanai. We have found this to be the perfect getaway for our family with our busy lives, just to relax or to experience all the awesome activities available in the area.

Why Becky Blankenship chose Placida

This condominium is located in beautiful Boca Vista Harbor, a complex of 5 exceptionally well-constructed condo buildings, with a wonderful clubhouse, pool, hot tub, covered grill area, and lighted tennis court, right next to a modern marina with boat and dock rentals available, near restaurants, quaint shops and kayaking. We truly can't imagine a better place to get away!!!

What makes this condo unique

For those who love to fish at any level, or those who would rather just wind down from the hectic pace of life, this is it!!! No loading your boat with all your supplies to go to an pull your car up to the convenient elevator, push the button for the 4th floor and you're there!!! Paradise found!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo is exactly as I imagined. Everything was high end. We would stay there again without a doubt and would recommend it. Best part was the view and listening to the boats. Complex is gated. Minimal traffic in area. Friendly neighbors. Very clean condo, fully stocked with bath towels, kitchen items & bedding. Even had washer & dryer with all the supplies. Beds were very comfortable. Lots of beach toys for the kids. We didn't want to leave. Owner kept great communication with us. We spent 1 day at Blind Pass Beach, went onto Boca Grande a few times and even did a nature boat excursion out of Englewood. On our rainy day, we drove to Ft Myers for some shopping & lunch. All you need is sunscreen, food & toiletries.

Five Stars is just not high enough!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Rarely, have we rented a villa that was so thoughtfully appointed as this. The attention to detail by the owners is incredible and we certainly appreciated having a place like this to hang our hats for our family tarpon fishing trip. The large screened lanai was a huge hit with the little ones....breakfast there each morning. The kiddos were entertained by the boats leaving the marina each morning. We are planning our next visit!!!

Ever-changing views....Amazing condo....Gracious owner!!! If you long to find a condo to come back to year after year...This Is the One!! This condo is spacious, modern and well appointed with many, many extras. Its luxury is casual....feels like your second home. The screened lanai provides an excellent perch to watch the comings and goings of the marina and the scattered islands. The gated community is beautifully maintained. This vista is old Florida at its finest with many activities so close. The comfort and serenity of this condo is the reason we are lured back each year!! Come and See!!

Spectacular View & Lovely Unit

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting the Boca Grande area for over 10 years. I consider it my home away from home (Ocala, FL). My husband and I trailer our deckboat down a couple of times a year and rent a wetslip at Eldred's. We spend the day on the water and the late afternoons and evenings on the lanai sipping margaritas!

We have rented this unit many times and wouldn't consider renting anywhere else. We LOVE the view and the unit! The interior is very, very nice and updated. Beautiful kitchen with everything you need and modern leather furniture. The beds are super comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious and clean. Floors are wood laminate throughout which lends an upscale ambiance which we love.

The pool and hot tub are lovely and there is an outdoor covered grilling area for your use. There is also a clubhouse with a big-screen TV and tennis court.

I can't say enough good things about this unit and Boca Vista Harbor. I only wish I could afford to buy it!

Owner's Response: As always, we are so very blessed when our guests so kindly express their delight in staying at our home away from home in the beautiful Boca Grande area, the tarpon fishing capital of the world! We know first hand the "just let the world go away" feeling you get when you sit out on that lanai and watch the boats go by and the dolphins playing in the gulf waters. Pure relaxation. We've tried diligently to make the condo a place that meets all your vacation needs, including the granite counter tops and the real bamboo flooring that is so timelessly enduring. Thank you for your sweet words and for your entrusting your getaways to us over and over. Come back again soon!

Experience the historic town of Boca Grande, just minutes away by car or by boat. Shop to your heart's content at nearby mall, and enjoy the many restaurants in the area. So much to do, or just relax by the pool and spa, and do nothing at all.
