About Barb Walsh
My husband and I purchased the property as a second home, as we live in Iowa full time. If you have visited Iowa, you know that our climate is harsh with many subzero degree days. We love the warm weather, heated pool and tub, as well as fishing off the docks. The first cup of coffee is taken while watching yachts float into the Gulf.
Barb Walsh purchased this House in 2005
Why Barb Walsh chose Placida
Conscious Sedation has direct access to the intracoastal. Great for boaters, jet skiers, paddle boarders, or kayak enthusiasts. The home is kept very lush with flora and fauna.We do not over trim the natural surroundings. Our manager has a green thumb and is happy to discuss the plants and trees indigenous to the Island.
What makes this House unique
Peace and tranquility, The spectacular view of the intracoastal can be appreciated from the wrap-around porch , the dock, or while exercising in the pool. The cottage is nestled between large trees to ensure privacy.

The house was wonderful. Spacious and plenty of room. The porch had a wonderful view.
Bob the maintenance guy was so helpful and accommodating. He always answered the phone and was willing to help. The golf cart was a wonderful addition. Would love to stay there again
Property has everything you need for a wonderful beach vacation, including chairs, golf cart, grill, pool, hot tub, tiki bar.
Property is a bit dated
Slightly disappointed. We decided on this property because we like the older cottage feel vs the modern feel. Initially it did not smell pleasant and was not as clean as we would have liked. It did grow on us and we had a great time. The only thing i am upset about is that we were unable to use the hot tub the entire time due to it leaking water and we specifically rented a home with a pool and hot tub to relax. On a good note Bob and Barb were great and very attentive. Bob was quick to respond with any issues and very pleasant. We understand the hot tub issues but wish we would have known prior to booking and paying.
So much potential!
Home has so much potential, but seems to be very neglected. Bathrooms were not very clean upon arrival and interior needs to be updated. Outside area, pool area and yard was over grown and dirty, causing tons of mosquitos....looks like a tornado went thru because the yard is not being maintained whatsoever. Pool was very dirty and needs to be vacuumed, jacuzzi has a exposed light fixture so we did not use that. Patio chairs were ripped and torn...seems as if this property is neglected. On a positive note, Barb and Bob were very nice to work with, location is close and golf cart was nice to use We stay on PI about 3 times a year and would likely not return to this property for the price.
Manessa, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your recent weekend stay. We will take your suggestions to heart and fix anything that is amiss. I wish you would have made our on island manager aware that you felt that the pool and bathroom were not clean. He lives 2 minutes away and STRIVES to give our guests a great experience. He would have personally skimmed the pool and remedied anything that you felt was unclean. It would have taken a matter of minutes.
As to the "overgrown" foliage our team works hard to maintain a natural sub-tropical feel to the house. I mention this on the website. My husband and I live in the brutally cold midwest and do not want our fauna and foliage overly cut. You mentioned that you are proud of the landscaping around your trailer home. It makes you feel as proud as our team feels about our home. They were quite upset that you didn't have a great trip.
You mention the cost of renting our home and you asked for a deep discount. I gave you the largest discount that we can while still paying the bills. We meant only to please your family and we fell short of your expectations. We are truly sorry.
Beautiful, peaceful stay
We had a wonderful time at this home. The rental process was easy, the owner was nice, and the house was beautiful. We will definitely be returning for another stay. Thank you so much!!
