SUNDANCE BEACH HOUSE: GULF-FRONT BLISS! FREE WI-FI, PETS OK!

Little Gasparilla Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Sundance House is one of the most private & comfortable homes on the island. There are three bedrooms and two baths on the main floor, and a wonderful outdoor shower below. The Master has a queen bed & private bathroom, while the guest-room Queen and the Kid’s room (with two single beds) share a separate full bath. There’s also a fold-out futon couch in the Sunroom.

Perfect for families or up to three couples, enjoy the large, fully-equipped kitchen, dining and living areas, Sunroom, and especially the Outdoor Shower downstairs. Satellite TV, a Dvd player and Wi-Fi are included.

Sitting on the front deck at sunset, the view feels like you're in a national park or your own private beach. Our home is directly on the beach, and only a few minute’s walk from our community bayfront dock!

Discover Old Florida: No Bridges, No Pavement, No Cars!

As part of the barrier island chain that includes Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Little Gasparilla offers the peace and quiet that those busy islands used to have. Accessible only by water taxi, Little Gasparilla has fewer tourists, no high-rises and no crowds on the beach. You vacation with dolphins, osprey and sea turtles instead!

There’s great fishing from the beach or the dock, and both children & adults will enjoy shelling, swimming, snorkeling or simply enjoying the sun. With no noisy nightlife or lights, you’ll see more stars than you might think possible. And while there’s daily water-taxi service between the island and the mainland, we bet you’ll want to stay put once you’ve arrived.

Golf carts can be rented, but most prefer walking the sandy paths that run the length of the island. There’s an excellent fresh-fish market (Miss Cindy's) just across Placida Bay, and many restaurants and gift shops in the nearby towns of Boca Grande and Placida –– a few reachable by water-taxi.

Our weekly rental rate is $1,800 plus tax and we have a one week minimum rental period (or $6,800 per month). Sorry, but we cannot rent for weekends. We also require a (refundable) $300 reservation/security deposit. There may be a surcharge for pets and holiday weeks, including Easter, Spring Break, Memorial Day, July 4, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

A vacation on Little Gasparilla will be one of your best holidays ever –– All you need are groceries, a bathing-suit, & a carefree attitude!

We love water & sailing, snow & skiing. But when the winters get too cold in Park City, we can't wait to get down to Little Gasparilla to warm up and splash around! We also love to hike the length of the island (7 miles), watching for osprey & eagles, owls & dolphins, as we go. We've travelled all over, but LGI is a very special place. Come visit!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

We spent five years driving through strip-mall Florida in search of the quiet little beaches we remembered from our childhood, and finally stumbled upon this best-kept secret place! Geography has saved Little Gasparilla –– it's just far enough away from highways 41 and 75, Sarasota & Ft Myers, to remain relatively undiscovered to this day. If you like boats & water, and would like to take a break from our car-crazy culture, then we bet you'll love this place as much as we do!

You have to want to get here, to get here, and that's a Good thing. But once you've stocked up on Groceries at the Publix down the road, parked the car at Eldred's marina, boarded your water-taxi and entered the bay, you'll feel your shoulders drop as you leave the mainland and all its cares behind. Land at Dock 41 five minutes later, grab a cart to roll your things cross-island in the free cart, and five more minutes brings you to our Sundance House. You'll pass our neighbors on the way, but once you reach our upper deck, the Gulf is all yours, for as long as you want.

OUR OWN PIECE OF PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family arrived after being in the keys for 5 days and it was so nice, and quite, and relaxing after all the touristy stuff! Theists had buckets full of shells within minutes of hitting the beach!

First off, the house is everything the pictures show - the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The bathrooms had plenty of fluffy towels. The laundry room was so convienent for running a couple of loads.

The beach is gorgeous! We wrote down the tide schedule for the week so we knew when we would have the best shelling. There was also a storm that came though the night before we arrived and there were lots of big shells for the taking. During the week, my kids found over 100 sharks teeth, a mermaids purse, a horseshoe crab shell and lots and lots of shells! We also fished off the beach and caught a lemon shark and a devil ray. While swimming, sting rays would chase their dinner right between your legs! We also saw many dolphins right off the beach.

Pirates water taxi was our way of getting back and forth to the island. Yes, it does get expensive, but they are running a business that is seasonal. I recommend making your reservations at least a week ahead of time if you go during the busy season. They are the only water taxi running out of Elreds Marina. Make sure you have everything you need so you don't have to go back and forth!

We rented a golf cart for a couple of days from the guys on the island (I can't remember the name of their business) and it was a great way to see the island. I thought their rates were reasonable and we had some problems with one of the carts and they came and traded it with another one with no problem.

This vacation was just what we needed for our family. Our kids are 11, 8 and 5 and they were never bored. One night we even took flashlights to the beach and searched for crabs! The stars - so many! We did do a day trip to a airboat Eco tour so we made it a day off the island and ate out, got ice cream and did some shopping.

If you are looking to get away from the touristy crowds and just spend some time with your loved ones, Little Gasparilla Island is the place to go! The owners have equipped the home with everything you could need. Bring your clothes and lots of food and you will have a wonderful time!

WONDERFUL BEACH HOME ON A WONDERFUL ENCHANTING PRIVATE ISLAND

  • 4 of 5
Sundance is a beautiful beach house, with spectacular views of the sea dunes and gulf. Easily accessible, less than 10 minute water taxi ride from a local marina. Breath taking panorama as you enter the house in to an over-sized sun room which flows into a large open living, dining, kitchen. Plenty of space, which is accentuated by well designed use of glass throughout the house. We, family of 5, experienced some bad weather, but still enjoyed every moment....if you wanted privacy, there were bedrooms or sections of the sunroom to read. We had jigsaw puzzles going in 2 locations, monoply was popular, competitive and humorous, and, my brother loves to cook, was quite pleased with the kitchen size and layout.
We made time to go out exploring the island,...the uniqueness of having only pedestrian and electric golf cart traffic was most enjoyable...no noise pollution, rather narrow intimate pathways added to the luxurious solitude of the island. On the one occasion we went off island to a restaurant, we chose The Fishery, they took reservations and provided great window seating overlooking the small harbor and the inter-coastal beyond...the food was excellent.
And the sun sets were dramatic...Sundance, because of it's proximity and orientation to the ocean, offers this magical quality as the sun begins it's descent and our anticipation grew.....it;s like New Years Eve....5,4,3,2,1..Nature has it all over New York's Time Square, and I think it is a heck of a lot more exciting than Mallory Square Key West.
We had a wonderful time...thank you John and Barbara for the opportunity. Hopefully, we'll be able to return soon.

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a such great time on the island; we took along our my son, daughter-in-law & 19 month old grandson and we all thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was wonderful & the beach beautiful. Your home was beautifully appointed and very comfortable; perfect for a family. Our only neighbor during the week was a turtle and he didn’t make a peep. We plan on going back to the Island sometime and would definitely rent Sundance again.

GOOD TIME ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time on the 4th of July 2011, the location of the house was perfect for all of us including the dogs (they also say thank you), the outdoor shower was very convenient to keep us clean, the photos don't do it's justice to the view, we had the best sunsets, best beach waves, best location. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and concerns. We had turtles visiting the property couple times, great pictures taken and will never be forgotten. This was a GREAT vacation. I would recomend this house for families that wants a clean home, convenient location and wants to bring home great memories.
