'DOCK ENVY'-PRIVATE DOCK W/ SECLUDED COTTAGE

Little Gasparilla Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This 3/2 cottage has recently been updated and will accommodate two families. The unique Crab Trap is a sleeping area for a young child. This is a great location with a stunning view of Gasparilla Sound and it's majestic sunrises. A private dock out the front door provides a perfect place to catch local fish and spy on the fascinating underwater life. Turning on the dock lights at night provides a glimpse into what could be called a snook aquarium. While being located on the bay, there is a leisure block and a half stroll to the beach. Swimming, strolling, collecting shells and sun bathing are a few of the relaxing activities available once you reach the white sandy beaches.

Upon returning to the cottage from your day at the beach, enjoy rinsing off in the refreshing outdoor shower. Then soak in the views of the dolphin jumping in the bay while relaxing on the screened in porch and realize just how blessed you are.

The full sized kitchen is ready for use with a refridgerator, oven/stove, dishwasher, coffee pot and microwave. It is also stocked with dishes and other necessary utensils.

Linens and towels are supplied for your convenience.

There is a quaint chapel located in the center part of the island, in a section called the Preserve, on the main road. Services are held every Sunday at 9:30 during the summer months and at 10:30 during the winter. These are non-denominational services offered for a time of worship and fellowship for all who visit Little Gasparilla Island.

My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.

Paris Dickey purchased this cottage in 2012

If you love to fish or desire a great view of Gasparilla Sound, this is the place. The fishing is fantastic on the private dock. At night, you can turn on the light and see what looks like your own snook aquarium. The dock also makes it easy to unload you luggage and then kick back and relax.

The long private dock in front of this cottage has made the neighbors jealous for years.

Fantastic views of Gasparilla Sound and breathtaking sunrises each morning are seen from the screened-in front porch.

Miles of sandy beaches are a short walk away.

Great fishing vacation with my wife and sons at Dock Envy. Beautiful unobstructed view of Bird Island, and a short walk to the gulfside beach. Owners are the best! Very helpful with anything and everything that we needed, including giving us a golf cart tour of the island and casting a net to catch some live bait for the boys.

Boys caught everything from 15" Mangrove Snapper to large catfish to Rays to Snook, including a monster 42" Snook that made my 14 year old's year.

The water taxi to the dock is comfortable and is a 5-minute boat ride from Eldred's Marina. Would recommend that you know how to throw a cast net for bait. There is baitfish galore and it is easily caught if you can throw a net, and the big boys like the mullet. Hold on for dear life is all I can say.

Thanks John and Cindy for a memorable week; and we'll see you again soon.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Before our vacation even started, Paris was very helpful & quick to respond with any questions I had & helping us get our vacation booked at Dock Envy! This was very much appreciated & easily the smoothest booking I've ever experienced.

My family & I stayed at "Dock Envy" for a 5 day vacation. John met us at the dock & was extremely welcoming & helpful during our stay. The home & dock were perfect! The beach was awesome & the water was perfect! This is going to be our new vacation spot! We are already planning our next stay here & can't wait!!

By far the best summer vacation!!

Thank you John & Paris!! :-)

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
We are the stay cation type and were very glad we picked Dock Envy. The house was extremely clean and comfortable and the view was amazing. If you have a boat or are renting one the dock is one to envy and for fishing I was 50 yards from one of my favorite spots in Placida.

The Crab Trap was a big hit for my niece. She really felt like a Princess having her own little spot in the house.... Our Boston Terrier also enjoyed his stay and we were very happy you all allow pets.

We were fortunate enough to meet the owner of the property during our stay. He and his family have been going to the island since 1975 and he gave us a great history lession.

The only thing which was out of anyone's control was the weather was a little rough for fishing but it made us relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the island.

Thank you for letting us enjoy the home and we look forward to visiting again after my new boat arrives.

Wow

  • 5 of 5
A simply perfect set up to enjoy a week of warmth, sun, beach, fishing, adventure and relaxing. This cottage is ideally located on the Southern bay side of Little Gasparilla Is. offering fantastic views and direct access to Gasparilla Pass and the Intercoastal waterway. My wife, our dog and I would alternate catching rays sitting out on the dock and strolling over to the beach for more rest and relaxation while our 16 year old and his friend cruised all over the Island on the gulf car we rented.
The cottage rental was appointed very nicely with comfortable furniture giving just the right feel for tropical Island living. The open layout brought the outside views, sounds and smells to the living room and kitchen as well as the master bedroom. The combination of location and amenities at Dock Envy make this the perfect rental for anyone that likes island living.

Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.
