The Bay Street Bungalow has been a staple on Little Gasparilla Island for several years. Recently, we've transitioned ownership and have now paired with a new, simply gorgeous property - and equally magical experience - at Havana Harbor.
Havana Harbor features three unique homes located a stones throw away from where the Bay Street Bungalow once rested. With three properties to choose from - Havana Harbor 1, Havana Harbor 2, and Havana Harbor's B&B - you simply cannot go wrong with your choice.
These homes work well for beach-lovers and fishermen alike! Sit on our deck and listen to the sea breeze ruffle through the lush, green mangroves! These homes (one 2br/1ba, one 3br/2b, and the ultimate experience - a full B&B 3/2) are all fully-furnished and perfectly priced for your memorable vacation on Little Gasparilla Island.
Come see what makes this island so special! Traverse sandy roads through palm trees on your way to your getaway – no crowds, no cars, no paved roads necessary. The only sounds you'll hear on our little slice of island paradise are the sounds of pelicans, seagulls, sea breeze, and surf.
For the last 17 years, I have been an active citizen in everything to do with Little Gasparilla Island. Community involvement, leading fishing charters, and serving as host to the beautiful homes that make up Havana Harbor are just some of the ways I enjoy spending time here on what I like to call "Paradise Island."
Rob Francis purchased this house in 2013
The intimacy of the property and wonderful neighbors surrounding me are two of the reasons main reasons why I decided to purchase the property. Between the ocean views and the intimacy of the two homes hidden among the lush mangroves, I simply could not say no to owning this property. Add to it my passion for boating and fishing and it became the perfect place to call "home."
Whether you book your visit at Havana Harbor 1, 2, or at our B&B, you simply will not get more bang for your buck. Between the picturesque scenery, clean, lush amenities, and my experience as a resident on the island, you simply can't go wrong staying with us.
Fantastic cottage on a fantastic island. All you need to do is show up here, the bungalow is well stock and the golf cart is a plus. Whenever I return, this is where I will stay. Dealing with the owner was a breeze, I highly recommend!
We had a wonderful stay is the bungalow. It was lovely and exceeded expectations! Look forward to returning. Appreciate all the good info and communication that made getting there & back go smoothly.
Spent 10 days at this wonderful, comfortable and clean island home. Like last year, the home was well stocked with all the necessities for a long or short stay. Although we only live ten minutes drive from the island, it seems much further away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Next time we won't wait a year to visit and just go for a long weekend . Thank you Robert for everything and your hospitality. Love the outdoor shower.
We love Little Gasparilla Island and this trip was no exception. The owners and neighbors were very accommodating and flexible (even extending our stay), the house is perfect, stocked with essentials and has easy access to both the beach and dock. The golf cart rental is a must! This is the perfect rental for anyone looking to enjoy the fishing, boating and beaches of Little Gasparilla Island.
We enjoyed our stay. The house was "nice." It was pretty much as we expected. The island is beautiful and would be great if the weather was warm. The week we stayed was very cool and windy. We spent the majority of our time in the house and it was a bit cramped for 5 of us. Of course, we didn't expect to spend much time in the house, but due to the weather, we did. We were very thankful the house had cable tv. The shower is very small (short) and would be difficult to navigate for a taller person. The only complaint we have, is with the communication with the homeowner. It took quite a bit of time to hear back from them via email. Also, they said they would call with more info and never did. We did indeed receive a couple calls during our stay to verify that we would leave payment. If we ever return to Little Gasparilla, we will probably choose a different rental based on the size of the home and the lack of communication.
