The little beach shack was very unique

  • 4 of 5

This Beachhouse was very rustic. We loved it. The views were amazing. You can even fish off of the balcony. I would go back.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Little Gasparilla Island and the Beach Shak. We loved it!!! The Beach Shak is rustic. If you are wanting something fancy and luxurious. Book somewhere else. If you want a nice, clean, and fun place to stay, BOOK IT!!!! There was plenty of room for 5 of us. The kids played on the beach all day long. The wife and I enjoyed walking the island. The only thing we wished the Beach Shak had was some basic fishing gear.

This was one of the best vacations we have had. We look forward to booking it again next year.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

As close to the beach as you can possibly get. Multiple rooms with tons of living space. A large L shaped couch and spacious area makes it perfect for a large group to hang out in. The balcony is in the water and gives a perfect view of the ocean and the surrounding stars at night. The owners were accommodating and I would rent again without hesitation.

Property needs some routine maintenance and a good cleaning. The location is great but this was about the only positive.

Awful

  • 1 of 5

The first night we stayed we had coach roaches crawling out of sofa! I texted Owner she texted back and told me that you will have bugs! I later visited with 7 other renters and NO one else had coach roaches and many other bugs! The furniture was solo dirty, the fridge was dirty also. The paneling was falling off walls! I changed sheets and the mattress had blood stains and other stains. It made me sick! My husband had to fix three chairs just so we could sit on them! I opened a window and it fell out on my head! I would not want my worst enemy to stay there! I texted owner about conditions she asked for pictures so I sent them to her. No response! The only good thing was the view! The last straw was when coach roach was on fridge door and fell in!

What a Great Week!

  • 4 of 5

It doesn't get much better than watching the gulf waters from the deck, the fish swim under the deck and the dolphins swim by! We went to sleep with the sound of the surf and woke up to the same sound! Everyone in our group had the time of their lives, walking the beach, playing in the sand and the gulf and/or fishing off the beach. My favorite part was we never had to "pack up" to go to the beach! The week went by way too fast!

The Beach Shak was as described, has tons of character and met our needs. The person who communicated with us was helpful, upbeat and made certain we had the information we needed. I would love to spend another week or two at the Beach Shak!
