Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Placida - SeaSalt

Two Bedroom. Two Bath. Gulfview.

Our SeaSalt condo is located at Hideaway Bay Beach Club on Little Gasparilla Island, a seven mile, white sand, bridgeless barrier island. Guests will park their vehicle in a secured lot and board the free condo ferry for a five minute ride to our island retreat. This piece of paradise provides a time for families and friends to reconnect as they enjoy the seclusion of this island getaway. The bayside provides boat slips and a dock for fishing. An inground pool and community barbeque grill and smoker are also located there. The screened lanai provides a view of the gulf over the boardwalk and sea oats. And the ocean waves are just a quick walk away.

This furnished condo features 'beachy' decor, comfortable luxury bedding, 2 full baths, washer and dryer, and a well furnished, full-sized kitchen. The unit sleeps six: one king master and two queen beds in the loft. Both WIFI and satellite tv are provided. Various beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, umbrella and a grill are located in the storage garage below our unit. A golf cart is also included with the rental. Kayaks can be rented on the mainland. Because there are no stores on the island, guests will need to bring in groceries. However, wonderful restaurants and activities are within a short driving distance with a quick ferry ride back over the bay to the mainland.

Enjoy time exploring the island by foot or golf cart over the white sand paths. Various local landmarks include the island chapel, library, and Don Pedro Island State Park. With no roads or traffic, this very special island surrounds you with incredible nature, the way Florida used to be. Amazing shells, sand dollars, and shark teeth bring new surprises as you stroll on the beach. Enjoy morning coffee watching the huge variety of birds, dolphins and manatees swim by or relax with evening sunsets filled with glorious colors over the ocean waves.

About Marcia Bouchie

We had been searching for years for a beachfront home. We knew we wanted a place that our family could spend time getting away from all the activities of daily life. Little Gasparilla Island provided just that. Through beach time, fishing, kayaking, hiking, and board games, our family is able to reconnect. We want to share our piece of paradise with others. This beach home blessing is meant to be a retreat and a time of refreshment for all who stay at our SeaSalt condo. "How shall saltiness be restored?" (Matthew 5:13). May all of our guests find that same restoration for themselves!

Lovely beach home

  • 4 of 5

Lovely beach home with lots of amenities that were very useful, including the golf cart, beach chairs and toys, plenty of towels, great dual gas/charcoal grill, and much more. Beach is reasonable walk. Lots of TV's/DVD players. Kitchen is well equipped. Recommended, and would return.

Fresh and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Marcia's condo was clean, updated, fresh, and decorated very tastefully. We have stayed in several other condos at Hideaway Bay, and Marcia's was the nicest one yet. There were also plenty of beach chairs, an umbrella, wagon to transport, and balls for the kids to use. The place was immaculately clean which met our high standards, and there were many "extras" to help us feel at home. the only things not great were the master bedroom dresser, as the drawers did not close and the ceiling fan did not work well in master bedroom. We love LGI!!

Beautiful island, great condo with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Little Gasparilla Island was beautiful, secluded, and yet had enough activity to keep a 5-year-old happy.

The Process: We were nervous about the whole ferry boat, parking, getting on the island process. However, Marcia sent us great instructions with all the details and when we arrived at the parking area everything went swimmingly. The carts were big enough to carry three suitcases, groceries and a few small bags. They really have that process down and it was a smooth transition to the island.

The Condo: The condo came with a golf cart! My son loved our "adventures," even at night, and we were able to explore the island. Word of warning, make sure you charge it regularly. Going as far north as you can on the Island was a stretch, but we made it there and back. We found beach toys, chairs, an umbrella, etc, everything even a 5-year-olf would need to enjoy the beach. There was also a huge propane grill, which we used once. Inside, the wood floors were beautiful and practical for the sand that would inevitably get in. The sandal basket was a nice touch! My in-laws joined us for the first few days and there was plenty of room for my wife and I with our son in the upstairs room and the in-laws had the master bedroom on the main floor, which had an extra door to close them off with their own bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked and clean. There was plenty of room in the living room for us to finish a puzzle while our son dumped out his legos on the floor. The DVDs were also a great addition for our son who was introduced to Wreck it Ralph. The condo was clean with quality furniture and fixtures, and the view!!!! Every evening we could see the sunset from our front porch with the glow on the gulf and the pond in front of the condo. Of course, taking the short walk to the beach was even better

The Community: The pool was great! It was heated so typically it was warmer to stay in, although we had sunny, warm weather all week. Our son loved it! The community also has a pier. We rented a boat for a day and used the pier to load and unload the in-laws and other necessaries. Find out what events are going on. We attended a pizza/dance party and it was fun mingling with the other guests. We met another family with two boys our son's age, which was great!

The beach was incredible, walking to the bottom of the island was doable. The condo was exceptional and we hope to return! Thank you, Marcia, for your great communication and hospitality!
