|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Easy access to Bay Dock
Washer and Dryer
Excellent fishing, shelling, snorkeling.
Island Getaway: The cottage is a few feet from the bay dock. Unloading and settling in is easy.
Once settled in, there is fishing, exploring the island, walks on the Gulf beach, shelling, and any aquatic adventure you’d care to initiate.
The lack of a bridge means that traffic is by foot, or golf cart (rentals are available). If you want a change of pace, this is definitely one place you should check out.
Randy was so kind and inviting. Alice and Rob, who take care of the place, were amazingly helpful and kind to our kids. They even brought them a coconut to each and some shark's teeth to take home. The house was very well kept and clean. We were able to BBQ each night and sit out on the now screened in deck to read at night. They also have installed an ethernet cable for internet access. It was a great stay, we are already looking at booking our next vacation!
We had the best time of our lives!!!! The house was absolutely adorable!!! Pictures do not do it justice. The place was spotless and had everything you could want or need!!! Randy was a dream to work with and Linda was an amazing help on so many things from luggage to bug spray that we forgot:( We plan to come back in October for a end of the year vacation!!! Can't wait love the Island and this home!!!
Great place to stay, very close to the beach. Randy was so nice as well as the caretakers Alice and Rod. Cottage very clean, decorated well and stocked with sheets, towels, kitchen untensils, dishes, etc. Looking forward to going again very soon. This island is a remote retreat with no cars, great way to relax and just enjoy beach walking, bird watching, swimming and meeting great people.
My husband and I arrived without complication with our three little dogs to Randy's cottage for a very peaceful weekend of rest and relaxation. It is so easy to get to and to walk from the house to the bay or the gulf. Alice and her husband, the local caretakers, were so friendly and helpful as well - truly decent people. We enjoyed walking our dogs to the beach each day and letting them explore and play in the water. The beach was beautiful with very minimal guests, so very relaxing. The water was even warm enough by my standards to go in. Everyone we did meet on the island (which is not many as the place is small and not crowded thankfully) was very nice and welcoming to us. The house was perfect for a weekend escape and very pet friendly being on one level without a lot of stairs and not far from the dock or beach. We definitely will consider coming back.
We absolutely fell in love with Little Gasparilla Island. It is so peaceful without all the commercial stuff usually seen at the beach. We felt like we were right at home as soon as we walked in the house. It had plenty of room for our family of three. The porch is not a nice screened in area to enjoy dinner outside. The owner (Randy) is great to work with, and Alice and Rod, who help get you settled in are amazing! We would love to stay here again!
Our stay on Little Gasparilla was ideal. After a short ride on the Pirate Taxi, we were greeted warmly by the caretaker and our luggage was shuttled the short distance to the cottage.
The cottage was sparkling clean and very comfortable. There is ample furniture for lounging and a fully equipped kitchen. The side deck was our favorite spot for lunch and dinner. Don't forget to bring charcoal for the Webber out back.
A short walk down the sandy road led to the beach where we spent hours walking the dogs, looking for shells and watching the waves. Often times we felt we had the beach to ourselves.
There are no formal amenities on the island, so it may not be for everyone. But if you are looking for a very relaxing, low key and quiet escape, Little Gasparilla is hard to beat.
