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.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house was great much better than expected. Love your details of your decoration the only thing you don't have is a gulf cart. Which you should consider adding. But if not it isn't necessary. Would definitely do it again. Thanks for everything.

The perfect home in PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week on Little Gasparilla with my three daughters and sister. This was our first visit to the island and we were blown away. Within the first hour my oldest daughter asked if we could come back next year. It's a really amazing island. I recommend getting a golf cart for a day to explore every corner of the island...the other days we just walked. The house has everything you would nee. The kitchen has a blender (great for drinks) and a waffle maker. The spice cabinet is well stocked. Cindy and Stan really made sure the home has all you would need. The favorite spot? The hammock on the porch. Wow. My youngest found a baby gopher turtle and gecko out front..my oldest spotted a armadillo next door. The house is perfectly situated between the Gulf and bay.Short walk in either direction. We can't wait to return. Thanks for sharing your home.

Family Vacation ~ Island Style

  • 5 of 5
This was not our first vacation on Little Gasparilla Island. Because we have many wonderful memories from years ago when our children were much younger, we decided to go back. We chose Little Gasparilla because of its island charm, sense of adventure, the private Gulf beaches, and of course because the fishing conditions are excellent! We gathered at "Dolphin Pass" as a a family~ three generations and it was perfect for us! The house was comfortable and especially nice that each bedroom of guests had their own bathroom. The family room was big enough for us all to watch World Cup soccer on their big, high quality television. Even though we came overly prepared to cook some good meals, we were pleasantly satisfied that the kitchen was well equipped to meet our needs. We heard no complaints from the men about the gas grill, either. We had great appreciation for the quality of the air conditioner in the house! After coming in from a day of boating in the hot sun, the house was always cool and inviting. The large porch provided a place for the anglers to prepare and share fish tales. The ladies used the kayaks and ventured into the beautiful bay waters. A big addition to this rental property is the lighted dock and boat slip. However, we did miss that the dock did not have fresh running water for boat clean-up. No problem….we were on vacation…..with that island state of mind! Even though you really do not need a golf cart, we are happy that we did rent one. We all got a chance to explore Lil' Gasparilla to see the gorgeous real estate and to meet the friendly islanders. Also, during our stay we were fortunate to have met some of the welcoming "Dolphin Pass" neighbors. Our week vacation also included what we named…."The Dolphin Pass Fishing Tournament"! We had lots of stories to bring home, laughs to remember, and hundreds of pictures! Thank you and we look forward to another family vacation on Little Gasparilla Island!

Fun

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The house was nice. I was worried about the distance from the pier, but the cart was big enough to tote our stuff. If you like the beach and going fishing in your boat, it's a great get away. The beach is private so I found the prettiest shells ever! Also the wildlife is awesome.

Be careful when you rent

  • 2 of 5
I have been renting on Little Gasparilla Island for over 8 years. This is the first time I experienced an issue. The house was convenient and well equipped, but be very careful when reading the contract. It is unlike any other contract I have experienced in a rental. Here's why:

1. You have to do extensive cleaning at the end of the rental so that it is ready for the next renter. This includes washing all linens, making the beds, cleaning the carpets, etc. Not something most want to do on vacation.

2. As a result, the condition of the house when you move in might vary. We had beds to make, dishes to do, etc. Not a great way to start the vacation.

3. The house says it sleeps 8 but the price might vary according to your reservation request. I reserved for 6 and then told them that I was going to have one more (a month in advance), they wanted to charge additional $$ per night.

4. The TVs do not work in the bedrooms. As a result, my kids used their ipads on the wifi. The overage charge was (conveniently enough) EXACTLY my deposit... There is no way to track or manage wifi usage.

As I said, the house is great, the challenge I found was in the contract and terms. I have never experienced anything like it.

Owner's Response: This has never happened before. I had a family emergency out of town and was unable to check house and make sure everything was ready for this family before they arrived. Upon new arrival They phoned me, told me towels etc. not done.. but no problem.
Contract clearly gives you option of either cleaning yourself with no cleaning fee or choosing to pay a cleaning fee to have it done for you. I then check house to make sure it is ready for next family either way. my advertised site states that although the house can sleep and we will accept a limit of up to 8 people...[ we prefer 6] there is a fee for each person over 6. [ fee amount is stated in both site and agreement signed by renters before staying. We have a large screen TV in great room that was fully functional, a TV in downstairs master that also should have been fine [ if problems with anything during stay we ask that you phone us right away] a TV in [ kids rm] for DVD movies [ in rm] and a set for 2nd master for just CD movies on upper floor.
In rental agreement signed by renters it states clearly that any amount of gigabytes over 5 has a charge of $10.00 per gigabyte due to this charge by Verizon to us. We only have WIFI capability available for your convenience but expect your stay on island and house to be about, beach, games, family time and this is worked out fine in the past. You do have ability to look at router in house and monitor your usage. We can get online and see if overuse , how much and added cost. We did this for these renters and phoned them to be aware of teenagers overuse . The bill we received for this large amount [ $300] which stated every day of their stay and constant gigabyte usage was printed out and mailed to family with our giving them a $100. discount for their next stay at our house and our regrets regarding their problems We pride ourselves on giving the best of service to our guests during their stay and are available always for any problems they may have by phone. Our past visitors reviews and the fact they return from year to year show this was an unfortunate one time situation . Sincerely, Cynthia Dyrcz

Great time, great place! Weather... Not so much.

  • 5 of 5
In spite of unseasonably cool and rainy weather, we had a great time at Dolphin Pass. The island and beach are a wonderful get-away location. We had two or three days which were washed out due to weather, which made us really grateful for Dolphin Pass. We had 4 adults, 4 children, and plenty of space in the house to enjoy indoor activities! The house was well stocked, and in great shape. Thank you Dyrcz for the opportunity! We did get a few days to enjoy the beach and take the kayaks out. We saw dolphins up close, and with the surf up, had a great time on the boogie boards.
Emmit and Bill were great taxi providers, though their rates are now $20 per two people one way, which was a significant increase from what we planned. We went off the island only once midweek, and enjoyed a movie in Venice as well as a great lunch at Flounders in Englewood beach. All in all a great week!
