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.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in Little Gasparilla Island. Kim was very helpful. She made us feel very comfortable asking any questions. She met us at the ferry (even when we changed our arrival time at the last minute) and helped us bring our belongings to the condo. The condo was clean and very nicely decorated. We loved having the separated master bedroom and bath that we don't even have at home and the kids loved the loft. The condo included many items that we appreciated- 3 TVs, movies, washer and dryer, golf cart, grill, beach umbrella, beach toys, vacuum cleaner, and much more. The island itself was so beautiful. We rarely saw more than 5 groups of people on the beach even when walking long ways in either direction. I found many unique shells I had never found before. It was also so much fun driving the golf cart on the sandy paths on the island and looking at all the unique houses. Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Anna, I am so glad you enjoyed the island as much as we do (who couldn't:) There are few places like it where there are no cars. You get to leave all the hustle and bustle of every day life and just escape to utter relaxation:) Hope to see you again next year.

GREAT BEACH

  • 3 of 5
Had a great week at lLittle Gasperilla! Perfect beach with the added benefit of car free environment. Sadly busier than we had expected over Memorial weekend. Having said that by Tuesday everyone had left! The condo was basic but sweet however the beach was so lovely we hardly did anything other than sleep in it.

Owner's Response: Hi Roseanne,
I'm sorry that you did not realize that the island would be busy on the Memorial Day Weekend. Our island at the busiest time, though, is still less crowded by far than any beach you could go to on the mainland:) Luckily you were there to enjoy to tranquility of the island after the weekenders left:).
I try to do everything I can to make sure that my renters have a very nice vacation which includes meeting them at the island-side ferry and taking them by golf cart to the condo, showing them the amenities of our condo community (community ice machine, pool, grill, etc) and assisting them with any questions they might have.
I feel as though I must have overlooked something as you can see from all my previous reviews, I have never had anyone give me less than 4 stars. Maybe I'm just a little too sensitive, but it is so important to me that all my guest have a spectacular time on our little piece of paradise.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in the "States" and have a safe plane trip home.

VACATION IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
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.

GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
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:)

HONEYMOON COUPLE (2 YRS MARRIED)

  • 4 of 5
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.

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.
