Whether you arrive by water taxi or private boat, you'll immediately feel the island vibes as you make your way up to your Florida home-away-from-home. Just a short stroll from the community dock, this stunning property rises above the tropical foliage that surrounds it - giving you a birds-eye-view of the serene Placida Harbor.
Inside, bright and colorful decor creates a lively environment, guaranteed to keep everyone's spirits soaring throughout your stay! As a cherry on top, modern amenities including in-unit laundry machines are sure to make your trip worry-and-hassle free.
But don't linger indoors for too long! A quick 5-minute walk, with provided beach equipment in tow, will bring you to the opposite side of the island - where the white sand beaches you've always heard of meet the Gulf of Mexico. Stay as long as you would like, enjoying all of your favorite coastal pastimes, before returning to this ideal rental home.
Refuel your group each evening with a hearty homemade feast! As you whip up side dishes in the fully equipped kitchen, the chef can cook the entree to perfection on the gas grill. Once everything is prepared, dine al fresco either in the screened-in porch or on the extensive deck with a picnic table. Close the day out with cocktails and cheers as the sun sets in the west!
With tired eyes, carry the kiddos to the second bedroom where they'll doze off quickly in the twin-over-full bunk bed. Next, take yourself to the spacious master bedroom furnished with a king-sized bed, sure to provide a sound night's sleep. Additional guests will find comfortable sleeping accommodations on 2 futons or in the optional 1-bedroom apartment!
Private and secluded, this bridgeless barrier island offers an escape from the ordinary Florida vacation - allowing you to connect with your family and friends away from the crowds of the mainland beaches!
During your stay, explore the 7 miles of white sand beach plus the rest of the island! Find the perfect seashell or sand dollar, watch dolphins swim along the shore, kayak through the mangrove, or birdwatch as you take a leisurely nature walk. The area is also an excellent place to ride your bikes!
If you're looking to get off the island, set sail for a day of deep sea fishing with one of the many fishing charter companies in the area, or join the sea creatures down below while snorkeling in Gasparilla Sound and Don Pedro Island.
Just across the bay, you'll find several scenic golf courses including Coral Creek Club, The Links Golf Course, and Pinemoor West Golf Club! If golfing isn't your forte, instead, treat yourself to dinner and drinks at Leverock's Restuarant or Fishery Restaurant - both offering incredible ocean views!
