Stan & I designed & built this house upon moving from up north 8 years ago as our future retirement home and ongoing vacation home for our family. Stan works as an Manufacturing engineer in Gainesville 3 hours away and I am a retired teacher. Most of the year one or both of us are on the island in our house as well as our family members.

Great house. Second year reserving. The screened in porch is nice for dinner and reading at night--fans/lighted. New bathroom in master bedroom upstairs perfect. Nice location to beach and bay. Lots of beach stuff already there for use. I would recommend this house.

If you are looking for a beautiful, clean, house on a peaceful, serene, island than this is the house for you! We loved seeing all the wildlife on the island and in the water; dolphins, manatees, sting rays, tortoises, lizards, and birds. Highlights from our week include:fishing off of the dock and from the boat we rented, walking along the beach on a beautiful full moonlit night, looking for shells and shark teeth on the beach, playing in the waves, and spending time with my family. The house contained everything we needed and more. This vacation exceeded all of our expectations!!

A beautiful place for a wonderful holiday

This was our 2nd stay at Dolphin Pass and we had just as good a time as the first time. Although the weather was cooler, we still hiked the beach & kayaked for hours and miles. We chose the island for the privacy and the total lack of commercialism. We were often the only ones on the beach with our dogs. We literally kayaked in the middle of a pod of dolphins while they went under our boat and two played catch with a fish! My grandchildren named all the wildlife from the tourtoise to the armadillo in the park, the snake in the yard to the pelicans at the dock, the manatee in the bay and the crabs on the beach. That's alot of imagination! We chose Stan & Cindy's house because of the cozy feeling of home with all the amenities, plus the kayaks as well as the close proximity to the beach. We met people from our last vacation and it was like meeting friends. A wonderful place for those who love to be outside as much as possible, those who love to read and those who want to be up close to nature in the water.

The home and amenities were exactly as expected and just perfect for this trip. We truly enjoyed every aspect and I would imagine will return again some day! Everything that was shared with us prior to the trip by the homeowner made our adventure so easy and truly enjoyable. The owner was kind, informative and quite helpful in making our experience just as we had hoped.

The screened in porch was home to much of our non-beach time! Plenty of naps, meals and board games were enjoyed in the heat of the day and on into the evening. We found the ceiling fans to be just enough to cool the air when out of the sun even midafternoon.

Exploring was a daily adventure and my children both toddler and teen had a ball! The beach was quiet and well maintained. We enjoy shelling and searching for sharks teeth daily as well as just relaxing and listening to the waves.

I would highly recommend this trip and this home. The photos seen on the site exactly portray the experience. We intentionally did not venture out to any attractions or hot spots. Our goal was to get away and relax and we did just that.

If you are looking for time to relax and recharge this is the place for you. We feel so fortunate to have found such a slice of heaven on earth. Dolphins Pass at Little Gasparilla Island will always be special to us.

Spring Break Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
Our family really enjoys Little Gasparilla Island for our annual spring break getaway. This is the 2nd consecutive year that we have stayed at Dolphin Pass. Over the past 8 years, we have not stayed at a location for more than a single year, preferring to experience different locations, but this location was our unanimous choice for our April 2013 vacation. The home has a well-equipped kitchen and is comfortable and clean throughout. The screened-in porch works well for an early breakfast, mid-day relaxation and nightly refreshments.
The numerous amenities make this a great location for our family vacation: board games, collection of DVD movies, beach toys/umbrella, chairs, kayaks, fising gear, propane grill, fire pit, outside shower, clean and plentiful bath towels, washer/dryer, etc...
Cindy and Stan have been very helpful in assisting us with both of our trips- They clearly care that their guests have a relaxing and enjoyable trip to the island.
A trip to Little Gasparilla, with no groceries available on the island (except for friendly neighbors), requires a little planning in advance. Cindy was very helpful in advising what we should bring with us and efficient tips for making the trip as relaxing as possible.
The guest book which is left at the home provides several years' of vacation feedback from visitor's to the home. From reviewing other visitor's comments, it seems that those that have stayed at Dolphin Pass before us have had positive experences, as well.
Looking forward to Spring Break 2014---
Owner's Response: Hi there,
So glad to have had you and family become our regulars. Hope the weather is better up north for you, my sister said [ one day 30's. next 70's] I remember it well. I'll let you know about the new to be finished 3rd bathroom and any other positive changes you will find on your next visit with us. Ask your daughter if we could provide any thing else for her during the next visit that could make it even more enjoyable. Definitely hope to meet with you and family in person to share a meal next year The wine you left us for a gift was well enjoyed for our anniversary . Hope your family stays, joyful, healthy with many shared great days. Enjoy your summer, and winter and we'll see you Spring 2014 again. Sincerely, Cynthia and Stan Dyrcz
