Condominium and Townhome Communities

stood alone as a high-end, waterfront condominium development in the
Cape Haze area. It has been joined over the years by

private docks. Below, you'll find brief introductions to these

Vista is adjacent to Gasparilla Marina, which offers
dock space, marine repairs, and rental boats. Many
of the Boca Vista owners have also purchased private
boat slips and may include sale of their boat slip with
the sale of their condominium unit.
Placida Harbour was
developed in nine phases, beginning in 1987 and
continuing through the mid-1990's. Most of the two

the community's private harbor. Placida Harbour

Gasparilla. On the island, owners have access to
