OLD FLORIDA LIKE YOU WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN.....

Little Gasparilla Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 Bathroom townhouse directly on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico.

Our townhouse has the master suite upstairs with a King size bed and private full bathroom. On the main level we have the 2nd bedroom with 2 twin trundle beds and a full bath in the adjacent hallway that can be made private by simply closing the door to the hall. The main level also has the living room with a brand new fold out double sleeper bed. The fully stocked kitchen and dining area create the 'great room' that is the main living area of the townhouse. Attached to the living area is a screened in porch that looks directly out onto the beach. Our unit is the closest rental unit to the beach in HBBC.

Below the main level is an enclosed storage area that houses the golf cart, charcoal grill, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach toys, 2 kayaks and many more island friendly items for your enjoyment. It is very popular to enjoy the shade that is offered under the unit to relax and wind down at the end of the day.

A very short walk to the beach is an evening ritual on the island to watch the sun set slowly into the horizon. The darkness of the island will then give way to some of the best star gazing that city dwellers will ever see. There is practically no light pollution on the island.

On a typical day walking on the 7 mile stretch of beach you may only encounter a few other people. One third of the island is a State Park so the density on the island is extremely low.

UNLESS OTHERWISE ARRANGED:

Check out ..... leave the island on the 10:00 am ferry

Check in........arrive on the island on the 2:00pm ferry

We live in Sarasota, just about 45 minute from the island. We live the hectic life and were looking for a place on the water that we could take our family, totally away from the hustle and bustle of running our family business. We spent almost every weekend on the island when our daughter was young. It was very special to us, because there were no distractions and we could simply 'be a family'. We shelled, snorkeled, boated and fished during the day and at night we played cards, boardgames or watched a movie that we had been wanting to see. It 'forced' us to be a family.

Some of the best memories of our lives are from weekends on Little Gasparilla Island. We would not change a thing. Our daughter is now grown with children of her own, and she relishes taking her family there to relive her childhood memories.

We invite you and your family to begin a tradition of just simply 'being a family' together in our family's island paradise.

Debbie Munholand purchased this condo in 1993

Hideaway Bay Beach Club is unique in that we maintain our own private ferry to and from the island. ALL the other residents on the island must provide their own transportation to and from the island. This was a BIG plus for us.

There are only a handful of boat access islands left in FL, that only allow golf cart traffic. We saw it as a 'laid back' type of old Florida that is so very rare these days. Flip flops, shorts, bathing suits, straw hats is the style of the day.... everyday. There's nothing hoity-toity about our little island.

Our private Ferry is free for your use during your entire stay. We have a large heated pool that all guests are welcome to use. Beach chairs, umbrellas, golf cart, beach games, and a large selection of videos are all there for your enjoyment. Our well maintained Golf Cart with a lift kit is free for your use during your vacation, by licensed drivers. We provide the golf cart to you as a convenience. PLEASE WASH IT before you put it away when you leave.

LOVE LGI!!

  • 5 of 5
We have visited the island before and it is an incredible place. Had not stayed at Hideaway Bay but will again - enjoyed the convenience of the ferry. Getting there and departing are so easy with the handcarts that pull right onto the ferry - captains were great. Condo layout is really net - super clean and had everything we needed from dishes to beach towels, plenty of room, and the views were like a postcard. Loved the upstairs master bedroom "nest." We made a few trips in on the ferry to eat out and get more groceries - but we were really content just being on the island. Only problem was how fast the days went by - we were working so hard laying on the beach, working on our tans, reading-visiting the point to fish and shell, taking long walks on the beach, exploring the small islands around LGI and Don Pedro in the kayaks, chugging around in the golf cart. Going back for another stay in October and again in May next year. New favorite dessert in the world is the chocolate mousse at The Fishery. Great vacation - we really don't even want to go anywhere else anymore.

EXCELLENT PRIVATE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We loved it. As soon as you step on the private ferry you leave the world behind. The beach can be seen from the unit and is easily walkable. It's also very quiet. The unit itself is stocked with plenty of beach supplies - sand toys, chairs, and even a bodyboard. We look forward to visiting again.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I picked this property because of it's location and great reviews. I even read all of them to make sure it was a good decision. We couldn't have been happier with the decision. It was gorgeous! The island was perfect. My kids roamed free and we were able relax.
The townhouse was like staying with family. The golf cart and pool items were very appreciated. The kitchen had every gadget you need even baggies,condiments, and pantry items. We were sad to leave.
Debbie was great too, she went out of her way to help us enjoy island life.
I will be staying there again I hope:)

FANTASTIC ISLAND AND CONDO LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We stayed the last week in July visiting from the UK, a family of 2 adults and two children aged 10 and 12, we all had a fantastic time.This was our second stay on the island and first in condo G2. The Condo has all you need for your stay and the owners description sums it up well. The golf buggy was great for getting around the site and Island. Little Gasparilla is a stunning Island and is a great place to chill and get away from it all. This Condo has a fantastic location very close to the beach and we enjoyed sitting out each evening watching the sun set from the balcony at the front overlooking the beach and Gulf. The wildlife on the Island is very accessible and it was a treat to see Osprey, Dolphins and other animals undisturbed as we walked on the beaches or made our way around the Island. We would strongly recommend Little Gasparilla and this Condo and would hope to return again.

HEAVENLY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful and relaxing visit on Little Gasparilla Island!!! Loved traveling the island on the Golf Cart and viewing all the beautiful homes. This island mentality was a nice change of pace. People were very helpful and kind always willing to lend a hand others around. The condo was a perfect fit for us. It was very cute and had everything you need for the beach as stated in the description such as beach toys, umbrellas, chairs and coolers. I would not hesitate to go back again. My boys loved it there too!!! We enjoyed the long walks on the beach. I highly recommend a visit here if vacationing without all the touristy things is what you are looking for. The owner was very easy to work with too. It will be a vacation to remember!

Spend your vacation on a boat access ONLY island. No bridges, cars, malls...(no commercial interest) distinctly different, by design. No high-rises, OLD FLORIDA... the last of it's kind. Catch our private Ferry to shuttle you across the ICW to the pristine Little Gasparilla Island. ( Named for the legendary...Jose' Gaspar the infamous pirate) This island is for those that want to 'GET AWAY FROM IT ALL' This 7 mile island is known worldwide for the spectacular shells that wash up daily. Enjoy your day walking on the beach, basking in the sun, taking a golf cart ride around the island to see the eclectic historic homes and beach cottages. Make friends with all of the critters that call the island home.... Osprey, Gopher tortoise, Great Blue Heron, beach crabs, sand pipers, and just off shore, the world's best Tarpon fishing as well as Red Fish and Snook. At night walk on the beach to witness the magnificent Loggerhead Turtles laying their eggs.

At the end of the day relax on the screened lani to watch the most beautiful sunsets on Florida's west coast. Our unit is the CLOSEST rental to the beach in all of Hideaway Bay Beach Club with island decor just recently redecorated in 2012.

A short ride (5 minutes ) back to the mainland on our Ferry will bring you within a half mile of the causeway to the luxurious island of Boca Grande, a popular vacation spot for the rich and famous. (former presidents, movie stars, recording artist (Rock & country), film producers, Corporate moguls ... you never know who you will see) Fine dining, shopping and sightseeing await you there.

Paradise, heaven on earth, island life, Hideaway Bay... by any name, it is a vacation you will want to return to as soon as you are able.
