Beach to Bay Perfect

Best part of the trip, was that everything in this house was CLEAN (I don’t tolerate dirt at all), smelled good, looked good and was well appointed. Lots of times beach houses get that musty odor, but this house did not, and I had no allergy issues. Little Gasparilla Island is a great place to visit, and the location of this home is near perfect. It is a short walk to the dock and a short walk to the beach. We spent our time on island fishing, boating to restaurants, relaxing, exploring the island and shelling. You can choose to watch TV or not. Plenty of books to read and games to play if you wish. FISHERMEN, take note we took our 24 offshore boat to the island. We put in at Eldred’s and parked truck and trailer for $6/day(launch included). If you don’t know the area, mind the markers and your charts. The dock is a community dock, and it is first come first serve. All docks are numbered and they start out with higher numbers on the south end. Fish cleaning table & lighted. ENJOY

An Oasis of Peace and Quiet Relaxation

From the time we stepped onto the dock at Eldred’s Marina until we stepped back on the water taxi one week later every burden, care and worry were left behind. The island is a super quiet oasis. It is like you are by yourself in a tropical paradise. The people we did meet were very friendly and welcoming. The house, Casa Contenta, was perfect. Just the right size for the four of us adults. I love sitting on the screened back porch with the fans going and a book in hand (until I took my daily siesta, of course). The beds were super comfy. The baths spacious and clean. The overall flow of the house was light and breezy. The kitchen was well laid out, furnished and made it easy to prepare meals. From the upstairs deck you could see over the treetops from the bay to the beach, like a birds-eye view of the island. We also enjoyed our multiple quick strolls to the beach every day for our swims and shark hunting. And coming back to a nice hot shower outdoors was just the best. We loved that there are NO CARS! And although the house has a tv we never turned it on. If you are looking for peace, quiet, solitude, this is the place for you. We are coming back this fall and can’t wait!

Best Week We Have Spent As A Family!!!

We often head to popular resort destinations, so imagine my suprise when this was suggested as a vacation spot by close family friends! With one teenager, and one 7 year old in tow, we decided to give Little Gasparilla a try. This was one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations we have ever had! The house is perfectly positioned on the island and is within a stones throw of the beach. The house is immuclate, with all of the comforts of home, but a much better sunset! Plenty of room in the house to spread out, and great screened in porch to host family dinners. The 2 golf carts were a plus with young children. Everyone on the island was plesant and welcoming. Plan your grocery list ahead of time, because once you take the ferry over, you won’t want to leave. Not even for margherita mix. Every day on the beach was a new adventure. My children took great joy in watching the dolphins and manatees swim by at their leisure. The sharks teeth were abundant, as were all of the smiles and great memories. I really appreciate being able to spend time with my family and not worry about all of the outside distractions. This was the perfect escape for an otherwise very busy family!

A Bit of Heaven surrounded by the Gulf

Having spent much of my youth by the seashore, I love the smell of the ocean, the roar of the waves, and the calmness I always feel when I have time to relax with the ocean. This house was lovely as I could easily walk to the ocean and still enjoy the ocean air.

A real treat was going to The Fishery before getting on the ferry-boat and buying fresh shrimp. If you’ve never eaten freshly caught shrimp, you’ll be amazed how much better these are. The lady will give you exact instructions on cooking the shrimp, so that you don’t end up with rubbery shrimp!

Enjoy walking along the beach and finding treasures such as the newly-laid turtle nest and seeing the volunteers stake it in hopes that no one destroy or damage it. I found shark teeth, perfect sand dollar plus some broken ones, and the best treasure was the memory of my granddaughter catching a nice sized fish.

Come to this Fabulous cottage-house and make your own special memories on this secluded island. Just be sure to bring lots of sunscreen for the sun is brilliant; there is absolutely no stores in which to make any forgotten purchases.

Heaven on Earth

This house is most comfortable and special. The house sits amid a magnificent tropical setting, steps from the Gulf and bay for easy access and comfort. Massive porch in the rear over looking tropical splendor, quiet and private. Ceiling fans throughout and brand new A/C system. With 2 upstairs private decks, perfect for private relaxation, enjoying balmy breezes and the gentle rustling of palm fronds.

The outdoor shower is a delight and most convenient. The rooms are inviting and comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped, and a washer and dryer, also a great convenience.
If you enjoy quiet, peaceful, relaxing vacations this is the house for you! This island is old Florida, and rare to find.

LGI is a most special island, beloved and respected by all and once you experience the island vibe ever present, you will return year after year if not more and this is the house for you!
