About Kim Rutherford

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

Why Kim Rutherford chose Little Gasparilla Island

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Returning for my 3rd year in a row, it is such a relaxing place to vacation. Kim and Brad are very thorough and gracious hosts. Very nice condo, and a wonderful island.

Relaxing solitude

  • 5 of 5

Kim - Just want to let you know how much we enjoyed the condo and island. Your representation on the vrbo site is very accurate - but there is no way to describe how impressive the island setting and scenery is. We appreciated how friendly everyone at the association was and enjoyed getting to know the captain(s) for the ferry as well. The beach is fabulous and the sunsets were grand. It is truly an beautiful place. We had to keep going back to Walmart to buy more storage containers for the shells we collected. We saw the dolphins a number of times when going across on there ferry.

We stayed here for the 2nd time absolutely beautiful there are no words that can describe the beauty of the Island Kim is wonderful she is so helpful and makes sure you are completely satisfied the condo looks just as pictured very clean and makes u feel right at home we stayed at a beach house in June which was very nice but the condo is much more convenient Hideaway Bay is so much easier to get across to the Island we plan to come every year and hopefully twice a year and I will continue to stay here it makes such a difference to have someone that does all she can to make sure your stay is amazing!! Thank u Kim we had a wonderful trip and will be seeing u again soon!!

Get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo was just perfect for my husband and I. Kim was absolutely wonderful to deal with. She gave us all the logistics before we arrived and was there to meet us at the dock when the ferry came in. The condo includes the use of a golf cart, which we put many miles on! Unfortunately, the pool was being worked on so we could not use it but the beach was fabulous. We are already talking about going back to Little Gasparilla next year. Thanks, Kim and Brad!!

Owner's Response: Patti, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I knew you would:) Even though the pool was out of service being remarcited, our 7 miles of virtual uninhabited beach makes it hard to miss. The pool, however, is already back in service and will be waiting for you on your next visit:) Thanks for taking such good care of our home:) Kim

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us, we truly enjoyed our trip. This is a place where you can completely relax. My son spent a lot of time fishing from the bay, but also fished in the Gulf while my daughter spent most of her time at the beach or in the pool.

The condo had all the comforts of home; there was even a crock pot there which we used one day to cook dinner while we walked to Don Pedro State Park. Along our walk we saw many shells, sand dollars, birds and fish. At the tip of the island we watched the dolphins play in the bay and saw a mom and baby manatee following a boat. In the evenings we would take a ride to the inlet and watch the manatees.

Everything was as pictured, and in great condition. We can't wait to come back and visit again.

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.
