Overview

Little Gasparilla Island Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hideaway Bay Beach Club is a lovely complex of townhouses located on Little Gasparilla Island on the southwest coast of Florida. We are next to Boca Grande, which is known for the world famous tarpon fishing tournaments.

The island is accessible only be boat. However, our development provides free ferry service for guests. Beautiful, deserted beaches covered with shells... the perfect spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets! Nature trails cover the island. No cars allowed... only quiet golf carts and bicycles! Golf cart trails are cover the island. Golf Cart with front & rear seating included. If you like to go fishing, swimming, shelling, crabbing, snorkeling, diving, birdwatching or just relaxing on one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida this is the place. Hideaway Bay has it's own private boardwalk to the ocean. People gather every evening to watch the most magnificent sunsets in the world.

Hideaway Bay has for guests a nice community large BBQ pit plus 2 serious smokers for community (which happens often) or individual gatherings. Just check the board at the landing area. We also have a community heated pool with a book library.

Our unit has a king bed upstairs & 2 single beds in downstairs bedroom plus a pull out couch. We have a full size washer & dryer. We include the golf cart & provide gas & charcoal grills.

You can bring your own boat and dock it free or rent one nearby. A boat trip to Cabbage Key where you can enjoy a 'cheese burger in paradise' and tour the island doesn't get much better.

This will be the closest you will ever come to feeling like you are on Gilligan's Island. It's a very unique place for a vacation and one that will give you memories forever! After discovering our island you will come back time after time.

Golf Cart is included.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to LGI on a getaway with another couple. The condo was very clean, organized, and fully equipped with the necessities. We loved having breakfast on the porch overlooking the lake. It is walking distance to the pool, ferry dock, boat dock, and beach entry. We truly enjoyed our golf cart rides exploring the island- golf cart is included. Additionally, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. There were extra blankets to use for getting cozy on the couch as well. Overall, we loved our stay and the beachy feel the condo had to offer. - The Greenes

Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this unit which was neat, tidy and fully equipped with all the necessary kitchen supplies and linens. The view is lovely of the lake. It is conveniently located near the picnic area, community pool and ferry. The golf cart made it easy to get around the island. The beach is private and we enjoyed our long walks collecting shells. The owner's prompt response to our requests was greatly appreciated. This is a great getaway. Enjoy.

A Trip to Remember

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting LGI and I really enjoyed myself. The condo was a few steps away from many amenities such as a pool, reading library, ferry, and boat dock. It was very convenient to have our boat so close by for whenever we wanted to get out on the water and go for a ride! We enjoyed exploring the island pathways on the golf cart and took relaxing strolls on the beach each evening, which was also only a short walk away. We loved being able to feel the ocean breeze from our front porch and rested easy in the spacious master suite. We very much look forward to staying here again in the future!

This is a letter I sent to the owner and he never replied...

Hi Tom! We're all checked out. Had a nice stay, just wish the weather was a little better! Wanted to let you know about a few things we noticed over the week that you may know about, but maybe you don't? We've stayed at many VRBOs thru the years and we presently have a place in AZ we rent out and always appreciate the feedback.

The water filter system- it's been leaking awhile- surprised the cleaning service didn't notice the standing water under the sink, we cleaned it up the best we could. There was a large ceramic pot catching some of the water under there.

The threshold on the screen door on the porch is completely off. The screen has a large rip in it.

Couldn't figure out how to turn on light over dining table?

One of the outlets on the left side of the bed upstairs didn't work.

VCR has a tape stuck in it.

DVD Pirates of the Carribean is missing? Only has the "Making of" CD...

Found coolers that were left full of water and moldy which we emptied and left open to air dry-needs bleach.

Found clothes dryer full of sheets, towels and dish cloths/towels (we didn't discover until mid week and had nothing to wash dishes with).

No broom to sweep up during the week, we took off our sandals at the door but sand seems to cling!

I would've liked a more workable kitchen. Since there are no restaurants on the island (which was part of its lure), I had hoped for better kitchen supplies. The cleaning service left the microwave dirty. No big pot to cook pasta or potatoes (we scrubbed the one under the sink catching the leak). No corkscrew. No peeler (we bought one and left it there). Pans were left dirty-one still had stuck on food. Found one good knife to chop veggies with. The BBQ worked but was pretty worn, the grill was dirty and catch pan was full and not properly attached leaving grease to spill below. We stayed in a Key West condo last year-inside each kitchen cupboard had list of items contained in there (an inventory so to speak). Kinda nice to keep track of your kitchen gadgets and such and where things belonged.

Beds were comfortable, showers and bathrooms were clean. LGI people were so friendly and nice-enjoyed the many walks on the beach, sunrises, sunsets and star gazing were fabulous! Wished we would've caught the Sunday service at the chapel!

Great Place to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many of the condos at the Hideaway and this is our favorite. The owner is very nice and the condo had everything you need for a great vacation. Having the golf cart is so convenient to go to the beach or just strolling the island. We will definitely be back!!!!

Awesome Hideaway/Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at 4303 and had as much fun and relaxation as the first. I think we have found our new vacation spot my wife said as we settled in on our first stay. It is very comfortable and well taken care of. I look forward to many more vacations here!
