Relaxing, peaceful and naturally soothing! describes it best! It is an easy two minute walk to the beach and a ten minute stroll to the village. The rental is centrally located to all that there is to do on this paradise island.
( Owner also has a VRBO rental in Maine #296222, in Acadia National Park, Seal Harbor, Maine. Summertime fun!!).
This Key West style house has all that you will need to be at home. It is completely setup with WIFI, Cable TV, free phone, linens, towels, kitchenwares, etc. You just need to get yourself there. It's in a quiet, relaxing and inviting neighborhood. People here are noticeably very friendly and gracious. There is fencing on three sides of the property, and a county lane runs alongside and connects you to an adjacent street that is looped and a safe place to walk your pets. We do have a great dog park on the island too! This is the most pet friendly place you will find in Florida!
There is plenty of parking space and trailer storage. Fishing and boating are the best of Florida here; tarpon, snook and redfish are abundant. The place is very safe and suitable for children and pets. Beach toys, umbrella, wagon, beachchairs and bikes are available.
The attached very private Guest Quarters are NO LONGER available to rent with the main house as the owners use it themselves to come and go thru the year. It was offered in the past to expand accommodations.
Golf carts are a normal mode of transportation on the island and have their own paths across the seven mile long island. The famous and historic Gasparilla Inn is the upscale centerpiece for the island and this treasured place is accessible in five minutes by car from the house. There are other historic Florida museums, libraries, community center, live theatre and free movies and lectures, resource center with computers, copiers, etc. Shops are fabulous and the basics are here. The environment is pure and soothing and healthy!
Gasparilla Island is a very upscale community with a little of everything important to enjoy. Boca Grande is the only town on the island and Lee County governed. Those of us that have lived here for years can really appreciate the limitations and opportunities that make life so special for us. It is a gracious, friendly and gentle way of life here. Very special, no other place like it in all of Florida. Just charming and beautiful!!
