Escape to Little Gasparilla Island and leave your stress behind! Little Gasparilla Island is a bridgeless barrier insland on the Golf of Mexico next to Boca Grande. This five minute boat ride from the mainland is all you need to put you in 'Island Mode'. The crystal blue waters and dolphin sightings to the dock are breathtaking! It's seven miles of uncrowded, white sand beach is only a few steps away and makes for the perfect vacation. Little Gasparilla Island is truly Florida's Best Kept Secret!!

The View from the Patio and Sund Deck are amazing. Only a few steps away from the beach.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Me and my family stayed at this beautiful home for 5 days and had an amazing time. The home is designed perfectly for everyone to stay and interact with each other, but also have somewhere to go for privacy. It is absolutely perfect for a family get away. We had a wonderful time spending time together at the home and using the amenities. The pool was an absolute life saver and made the visit even more enjoyable. If you are looking for a gorgeous home, with amazing views, and a lot of cool things to do, then look no more this is it! The home was also pet friendly and we were able to bring our dog Rufus. I don't know who had more fun us or him! The owners and maintenance crew were absolutely wonderful to deal with. I would recommend this location to everyone.

OUR REVIEW OF ISLAND DREAM HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Our family experience was wonderful, there were 6 adults and three children, 6yrs, 3yrs, and a 16 mo. old. The home was very kid friendly, the walk to the beach was nothing. The pool was a welcome sight after being in the salt water. The children had a very safe place outside to play in the sand and also under the home where they were out of the sun. We loved eating our meals on the screened enclosure! The sound system was great also! We did have our boats to go out fishing and boat riding. Although we caught pompano on the beach with sand fleas as our bait!! They were delicious! Unfortunately, we did not make reservations for a golf cart rental, (it was holiday week and they were all rented), would probably try and rent a golf cart next time. PS One thing the owners do that is very helpful, they have a gentleman to meet you at the dock on arrival to take all your things to the beach house as a courtesy!! Very much welcomed!! Overall we would recommend this property to our friends and relatives, the pictures are very accurate on the website.

LOVED THIS ISLAND DREAM!!

  • 5 of 5
I was attracted to this house because it had beds for my crowd of 8, with only 2 of us sharing a bed - there are 3 BRs, each with a queen bed, and a loft area with two single beds and two pull-out trundles (7 beds total, all with very comfortable mattresses). Many other homes advertised as sleeping 8-12 people required more bed-sharing and include some sleeping in living rooms on fold out couches, etc. The parquet flooring in the living area below is rather squeaky making it hard for those in the loft to sleep after others are up and about. The owners also allowed us to bring our dog, and did not charge an extra pet fee. (We found Little Gasparilla Island to be very dog friendly in general - it is OK to walk your dog on the beach here, which is not allowed in many places.)

The house itself will entertain you...it was built/decorated/equipped with fun in mind! There is a ton of outdoor living space, including a screened porch and 3 deck levels, all with seating and other nice furnishings. There is ample outside lighting all around and under the house, including the best lit sand volleyball court around. Also included is a small swimming pool, fire pit, and horseshoe set. The property is completely cleared and covered with a layer of soft sand. The house and all 3 levels of the outdoor deck are wired with a great surround sound audio system. There are nice TVs in the LR and all BRs, though we found it challenging to get some of the BR TVs to work for us. Furniture and appliances were all high quality.

Little Gasparilla Island is a beautiful barrier island that can only be accessed by water, so you need to either have a boat of your own or ride across the bay on a water taxi ($7.50/person each way), hauling all your belongings and groceries with you and hauling it all back, garbage included, when you leave. This is a bit of a hassle, but we found it to be well worth the trouble in order to escape the crowds and over-development present on most beaches. There are no stores or restaurants on the island at all. The house is a short walk (maybe 1,000') to the beach and maybe twice that to the bay, where you have access to a dock. We brought a kayak and fishing from it on the bay was outstanding. Shells and shark teeth can be found in abundance on the beach.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with, as was their maintenance man who met us at the dock on arrival, transported us and gear via golf cart to the house, and helped us get settled.

We'll be back!

On the mainland there are grocery stores, movie theaters,restaurants ,shops and golf courses. Great restaurants accessible by boat including the famous Cabbage Key (where Jimmy Buffet stayed and wrote 'Cheese Burger in Paradise'. Charter fishing for world class Tarpon, Snook, Snapper, Redfish and more. Also you can fish on our dock with fish feeder. At the end of the day, enjoy the amazing sunset on the beach.
