About The Owner

Our family is a family of three. Mom, Dad and our 5 year old son enjoy uninterrupted family time and wonderful friendly neighbors on this welcoming island!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Little Gasparilla Island

We fell in love with Gasparilla Island in 2009 when our family vacationed there. We felt like we had stepped back into the 1950s with the welcome of the neighborhood, golf cart-only transportation, high quality of the beaches and incredible views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I visited this home in March 2011 and we were delighted! The home is located right on the beach with a private boardwalk and incredible views. My family spent the vast majority of our time on the wrap around porch that faces the gulf as the screened patio was extremely comfortable and spacious. I cooked almost every meal on the large electric grill located on the porch and it was a special time for my family to gather.



The owners of this home have thought of everything. From extra blankets in all the bedrooms to two full refrigerators for tons of food, to a sleep number bed in the master bedroom. The bedrooms all had TVs and there was high speed Internet and dish TV available for all. The house felt more like a home than a rental unit with unique personal touches and decorations that made us feel like we were being welcomed into a home and not a frequently used, impersonal rental house. The newly remodeled kitchen, master bath and floors were wonderful. Our favorite moments were spent on the master loft deck that had gorgeous views of the coast drinking our morning coffee.



This home is a true treasure!

I am glad to see a new owner and some renovations have been taken place. The island is simply breath taking. If you are you looking for a quite and surreal holiday this the place. The sunsets and the sense of extreme privacy is really hard to match. It is a place we will revisit soon

Our Favorite Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been renting this vacation home for many years. We love it so much that we find ourselves coming back every year. Little Gasparilla Island is our idea of paradise. No crowds, no businesses, no cars, just natural Florida at its most beautiful. Serendipity is a wonderful, kid-friendly house with everything you need to enjoy your time there. The recent upgrades to the house have simply made a great house even better. It is beautifully appointed and you need only to pack a small amount of clothes and your groceries and everything else is provided. The beach is practically deserted making you feel like it's your own private beach. The sunsets watched from the lanai or the beach are spectacular and the shelling and fishing are world class. We believe that we have found the best house on the island and look forward to returning every year. Thank you Serendipity for so many wonderful and treasured family memories!

Comfort, Ease and Seclusion

  • 5 of 5
My family recently returned from a week at Little Gasparilla Island. It was a wonderful week with the kids. There was no trash on the beach, but millions of sea shells. A starfish bed lies on a sandbar easily reached during low tide. Breathtaking sunsets each evening. We saw dolphins everyday, and a manatee even floated up to my 7 year old as she played in the surf. It was magical! Most days we were the only ones on the beach.

We overpacked. With the washer/dryer in the house, we needed only our swimsuits, PJs and one outfit for traveling. The home is extremely comfortable. No lack of beach towels or entertainment (TVs in everyroom, board games, puzzles, books, etc..) My kids voted it their favorite vacation house ever. They had a blast, and I read 3 books! It was very relaxing. No pressure, no schedules, no demands.

Highly recommended!
