Photos and Description of the Placida vacation cottage rental

This 3/2 cottage has recently been updated and will accommodate two families. The unique Crab Trap is a sleeping area for a young child. This is a great location with a stunning view of Gasparilla Sound and it's majestic sunrises. A private dock out the front door provides a perfect place to catch local fish and spy on the fascinating underwater life. Turning on the dock lights at night provides a glimpse into what could be called a snook aquarium. While being located on the bay, there is a leisure block and a half stroll to the beach. Swimming, strolling, collecting shells and sun bathing are a few of the relaxing activities available once you reach the white sandy beaches.

Upon returning to the cottage from your day at the beach, enjoy rinsing off in the refreshing outdoor shower. Then soak in the views of the dolphin jumping in the bay while relaxing on the screened in porch and realize just how blessed you are.

The full sized kitchen is ready for use with a refridgerator, oven/stove, dishwasher, coffee pot and microwave. It is also stocked with dishes and other necessary utensils.

Linens and towels are supplied for your convenience.

There is a quaint chapel located in the center part of the island, in a section called the Preserve, on the main road. Services are held every Sunday at 9:30 during the summer months and at 10:30 during the winter. These are non-denominational services offered for a time of worship and fellowship for all who visit Little Gasparilla Island.

Little Gasparilla Island
Car: not necessary

Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.
