Little Gasparilla Island House Rental Photos and Description

Quaint Island Home

Little Gasparilla Island is a bridgeless barrier island with seven miles of secluded sandy beach, located off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Park at Eldred's Marina and jump on the 'water taxi' for a 10 minute ride to our dock. Walk 3 minutes down the lane and you'll find 'Calypso', hidden amongst the Florida Palms. It is perfectly positioned on a private lot, a 2 minute walk from the white sandy beach of the Florida Gulf.

Enjoy the seclusion of our home and a stillness not found on the mainland. Spend hours of quiet with a good book on our large screened porch, overlooking the lush palm gardens. Fully equipped, modern, well-lit kitchen with every gadget you'll ever need to pull off a great meal.

About Paris Dickey

In 1999, we migrated to Atlanta from upstate New York, seeking warm weather and sunshine. In February of 2013, we decided to begin looking at real estate in West Florida, and Voila! What can I say, miracles happen fast.

Paris Dickey purchased this house in 2013

Why Paris Dickey chose Little Gasparilla Island

In search of yet a 'warmer climate', we stumbled upon a barrier island we now fondly refer to as 'Little G'. Back home in Atlanta, we were tirelessly searching for a studio to quench our creative thirst. One spin on a golf cart around this sandy island, we were convinced we had found the best of all creative spaces, with lush natural beauty and solace from which to draw inspiration.

What makes this house unique

It's hip, immaculate and modern with a killer porch, only 175 steps to the beach. I've counted them myself.

Take your paints to the beach, photograph the sunrise, pull out your yoga mat or journal the rhythms of the Island tortoise.

Great get-away place

We had a great time staying at Calypso. Wonderful kitchen and great space in the house. We stayed with our two children. This home is just steps from the beach. We also loved using the grill and eating outside every night!

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time on Little Gasparilla Island. Calypso is a wonderful house only steps from a perfect and quiet beach. The owners were quick to answer any questions. The house was stocked full of everything one could possibly need. My wife and I enjoyed coming in from a relaxing day on the beach and cooking dinner in a fantastic kitchen! If you're looking for a place to get away from it all I would highly recommend Calypso. The island is perfect for nature lovers. We saw dolphins, turtles, manatees, seahawks, starfish, sand dollars, and a multitude of fish. We also enjoyed paddle boarding and kayaking around the many estuaries and inlets around the island. Highly Recommended little getaway!

Great little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was our third trip to the island and needed a place last and this was available. Paris was great to work with and we even were able to check in early. We met the owner upon arrival who was busy getting prepared for us. It's at a great location and the closest we've been to the gulf side. Very clean and made the family feel right at home. The weekend went by way too fast in this little piece of paradise! Great place for a family of 4 or less and will consider this place again!
Have kayaks available and it's a definite.

A little bit of heaven.....

  • 5 of 5
We were so excited to get to Little Gasparilla Island, but when we arrived at our lodging we were even more thrilled. The home is beautiful, sparkling clean, and the owner even brought the cart down to the dock so we could transport our things.

"Calypso" is located very close to the beach, just a quick walk really. We had no trouble finding it with the excellent instructions we had received. The landscaping is beautiful, and obviously a lot of work has gone into this home. The décor was very nicely done. The owner and the manager both checked with us to see that we had arrived safely and were happy with the lodging. There were beach toys, towels, umbrellas, and coolers to make our stay complete.

The water taxi service was very accommodating. We rented a golf cart, but didn't really make good use of it. It was fun to drive around the island, but otherwise, not knowing anyone else there, not a necessity.

We have already spoken with family and hope to have them join us next year for what may become an annual vacation for us. Thanks for a vacation to remember!
