Very relaxing getaway

The island was quiet and relaxing. Loved walking the beach searching for shark teeth, found a number of them. The home was very nice, had everything we needed. Patti was very nice to work with and a neighbor, Mike was a wonderful source of information and helpful in making you feel welcomed. Pirate water taxi worked out well, dropping us off at the front of the house on the dock. Great as a quiet retreat, or, if a person wanted to schedule other activities, there are things to do. Looking forward to visiting again.

My sister and I wanted a week in the sun to get away from it all and that we did at this very sweet and charming home right on the canal. The house has a great wrap around screened in porch where we spent many hours looking out on the water, the palm trees, the flowers and the birds, enjoying our meals and drinks and just relaxing and talking. The house itself is more spacious than it looks on the web site, and well stocked even with olive oil and balsamic vinegar! Most of the time we hung out in the morning and then it was just a three minute walk to the beach, which is wide and beautiful. One day we went to Placida and had a great lunch at the Fishery. Right around the corner is a great gallery called Margaret Albritton where we shopped for hours and bought the adorable nautical placemats that Patti, the owner, has in the house. We also loved the gallery across the street. I had to leave early and after I left my sister took a day to go kayaking. Next time I'd like to go to Cabbage Key, the island which is supposed to be the basis for the famous Jimmy Buffet song. But mostly we just loved being beach bums and hanging out at the house, which is very cozy and comfortable. It was the most restful and relaxing vacation I have ever had.

My sister and I took a week to get away from it all and that we did at this very charming house with a great wrap around screened porch looking out over the canal, palm trees and beautiful flowers. The owner Patti was totally available to answer any question, the kitchen had everything we needed, including olive oil and balsamic vinegar! We just became total beach bums and loved every minute, just relaxing on the beach which was a three minute walk from the house. One day we went into Placida and had a great time at the Fishery restaurant. Then we spent hours at the nearby Margaret Albritton gallery, where we bought some of the adorable nautical placemats that Patti has in the house. We also loved the gallery across the street. But mostly we just hung out at the beach and the house, which was very cozy and comfortable, nicely decorated and appointed and more spacious than it looked on the web site. The neighbors were very friendly and the weather was perfect. I had to leave early and after I left my sister took a day to go kayaking. Next time I would like to go to Cabbage Key, the island which was the basis for the Jimmy Buffet song, and perhaps do some fishing. It was the most restful and relaxing vacation I have ever had. In addition, I have multiple chemical sensitivity and had no problems, the house is clean and odor free.

Little Gasparilla Island

Had a nice relaxing time! The island is very nice. People that we saw were very friendly. The house was clean and roomy. We brought everything we needed for food and cooked a lot. Loved the convenience of the little grill on the porch! We even grilled breakfast vegetables and bread! Very glad I rented a boat for every day we were there, we would have not liked waiting for a water taxi every time we wanted to go somewhere. Having the boat right outside the door of the house was extremely convenient and well worth it. This house is on a canal, which is great since we had some days that were quite windy, so it made getting the boat tied up easier. We both wish we would have taken our own pillows, sleeping on a much smaller bed than what we are use to without our pillows made for some restless nights.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and Island! Being on the canal is very convenient with your own boat or water taxi. For those without a boat the taxi service is great - just need to call ahead and set up a time - door to door service!
Queen bed has suited most of our guests and pillows are replaced many times during the year - though everyone has their own preference and nothing is as comfortable as your own!

Thank you for sharing your home with us! We had a great week of fishing and beach! The house is very clean and full of great kitchen amenities for cooking. It sits directly on the canal and a short walk from the beach. Perfect combination. We will definitely be back to rent this home again!
