My husband, Brad & I are true Florida Crackers, both born in Central Florida. We were High School Sweethearts, dating for 7 years, and now have been married for 36 years. We grew up in Bradenton, Fl and once married moved around Central Florida ending up in Winter Haven.

Kim Rutherford purchased this condo in 1997

Some good friends of ours invited my husband to stay with them at their HBBC Condo during a fishing weekend back in 1997. He instantly fell in love with the Island and came home and was excitedly insistent that I go the next weekend with him to see about buying a place for our own. It didn't take much convincing on his part...I was hooked the minute a saw it.

My husband & I love the condo for different reasons. He is an avid fisherman.. and a legend in his own mind:) No, he really is a good fisherman... you know they say practice makes perfect...well he get's plenty of that...This area, along with being the Tarpon Capital of the World, is also beeming with Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Flounder, Permit, Grouper, just to name a few of my husband quest. What made me fall in love with the island was that it was a secluded island only assessable by boat. There a virtually no vehicles on the island except golf carts. This makes it safe for your kids to have fun and explore without you having to worry. You can go down to the beach at almost any time of year and almost have the whole beach to yourselves. This place makes you forget all the hustle & bustle of your every day life...it is a true oasis of relaxation.

the condo was lovely and very comfortable. We had a relaxing stay, walked on beach every morning and evening, watching beautiful sunsets. The golfcart was an added bonus after a long day on beach and bringing supplies and luggage to the condo. A wonderful island and a great place to stay! It was everything it was described to be.

This was our 3 time staying on the island. Our condo was fully equiped with everything needed for the week. Clean and comfortable. Thanks for meeting us at the dock on our late arrival. Had only one minor problem-the golf cart battery kept running out. of juice . Got some good exercise pushing it back to condo from north road. We did apreciate the fact that the cart was provided free with the rental. I would recommend the beach hike north to Don Pedro state park. Takes about 45 min to an hour. Bring food and water. The park has bathrooms and drinking fountain.

Owner's Response: Hi Don,
So glad you enjoyed your stay. You will be glad to know that we have replaced all 6 batteries with brand new ones and we have just purchased 4 new tires and wheels so the next time you come to stay (we hope you will:) it will be like a brand new golf cart and you will have to find your exercise elsewhere:)

The condo was a WOW when we walked in. The listing photos were right on. Owner went out of her way to be helpful. We would recommend it, for sure.. Restaurants within close proximity (loved Leverocks The fishery. TGIf's ) Punta Gorda was great. Close enough to attend Red Sox games. Loved the chapel on the Island.

Excellend Relaxing Beautiful Vacation

We loved finding this secret hide away. There were 6 of us and it was the perfect size. It was me, my husband, 3 kids (18mo, 5yrs, & 7yrs), and my mother in law. The kids loved the beach and the huge amount of shells they found. We live in Ft Lauderdale so we are used to beaches and shells but this one had much more than at home. They also had a blast in the golf cart. My mother in law enjoyed how relaxing it was, even with 3 kids! There was enough space so the two older ones took the upstairs to themselves. We can't wait to go back :)

My wife and I had a great week. We came to relax, fish, and hang on the beach and we accomplished all. Everyone on the Island was really friendly and helpful. Kim and Brad were very helpful when we had questions. I would and already have recommended this property to my friends. Looking forward to next year.

Little Gasparilla Island is located in Charlotte County, Fl. It is only assessable by boat. You can either bring your own boat and use one of the slips at our private community dock or you can use the free Hideaway Bay Beach Club's private ferry. It runs every 2 or 3 hours depending on the day of the week (see picture for ferry schedule).

Whether you are interested in fishing...We ARE the Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World.....or just wanting to relax like you never have before either laying by the pool or reading a book sitting on a very quiet 7 mile stretch of beach (remember it's only assessable by boat) or strolling down the beach collecting amazing shells and sharks teeth. This serene place is like few others....made for total relaxing.
