Overview

Little Gasparilla Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

We are located in the center of Little Gasparilla Island approximately 100 yards from the bay and 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. (See location map) From our home you can fish, crab, or shrimp off one of two private docks, search the miles of white sand beach for exotic sea shells, surf fish the beautiful waters of the gulf, or just relax and enjoy the gorgeous beach that Little Gasparilla Island is famous for.

Access to the island is by your own boat or there is a private water taxi available at a reasonable rate. This lack of a bridge makes LGI unique and adds to it's relaxed atmosphere. There are no paved streets only sand roads with the main mode of transportation golf carts and foot power.

We built this home for our family to use and it has worked perfectly for us and will for you too. There are 4 bedrooms all with king size beds(several can be separated into 2 ex-long twins) with 2 full baths and 2 half baths. There are porches on front and back and 2 decks off the second floor bedrooms. The living area is very open so everyone can be together whether cooking dinner or watching TV.

The house has everything you need to have a great vacation. From a kitchen complete with all appliances, pots and pans, and a complete selection of spices to beach chairs for relaxing on the beautiful white sand beach. Our house has it all!!

Downstairs is another large deck for relaxing and a large outside shower with hot and cold water.

We have a golf cart that we rent separately for $50/day or $250/week. Just let us know if you want to rent the golf cart before you reserve the house and we will include it.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time while we stayed on Little Gasparilla Island. The house was spacious and wonderful and we also liked the location. We rented the golf cart and really enjoyed exploring the island. The people on the island were very friendly. We consider our trip to the island to be an ideal vacation and hope to come again soon.

Thank you to the Hedges family for sharing their home and would recommend it to someone looking for a beautiful place to stay.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get together on the island and this house was able to fit a large number of our group very comfortably. Although we also had another rental on the island we would typically all gather at the house for meals. We had no problem with meals for 19. We rented the gold cart as well which I highly recommend, we've been coming to the island for 10 years and having a cart is very helpful. We had a 1 year old in our group so the fact there was a playpen and a gate for the stairs was very helpful. We highly recommend this house.

Beautiful Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad that I decided to rent this home rather than a hotel room. It was well maintained, spacious and had everything we needed during our stay. My family has three children, ages 9, 11 & 13 and this was our first visit to Little Gasparilla Island. The gentleman at Pirates Water Taxi were so kind and accomodating, especially considering when we arrived there were close to 30 mph gusts of wind and the water was very choppy on our boat ride over. The house is situated in the middle of the island which worked out wonderfully as the winds continued through late Thursday night and we had some protection being surrounded by the trees. Definitely rent the golf cart as that was how we spent a good portion of those windy days, exploring the island :) Keep in mind that there is no WiFi, luckily I had my Verizon tablet which has a Hotspot. Normally on a vacation I wouldn't care, but one of my children had homework and she needed to work on it on the island. So just a heads up for anyone who may be in the same situation. Many thanks to the Hedges on their generosity in sharing their beautiful home! We hope to visit again!

Get Ready to Relax and Unwind!!

  • 5 of 5

I surprised my husband for a birthday getaway week-end trip which included two couples, close friends of ours. We were transported back in time, natural vegetation, no cars, very peaceful, secluded island. The home is very comfortable and exactly as homeowners described it on their website. We recommend using the golf cart as it's handy to explore the island and going to the beach with chairs, etc. much easier. The beach is great to walk, build sandcastles, read a book, collect shells or just listen to the relaxing waves. If you enjoy fishing, bring your fishing pole, also there are fishing guides available (but you need to book them ASAP). The only way to get to island is by boat. We surprised my husband with the getaway and enjoyed our visit to Little Gasparilla Island immensely. Highly recommend it if you want to disconnect from the world and unwind!!!

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Shell Haven is a tremendous place for a relaxing vacation. We spent two weeks on the island with only one rainy day. Coming from Michigan the weather was perfect. The beach is a short walk from the house giving you access to miles of peaceful shoreline as well as plenty of space to search for that perfect shell, sand dollar and starfish. The owners have a golf cart you can add to your rental and I would recommend it. We did, and explored the whole island. The house has everything you could need and has that comfortable relaxed feeling. A huge deck surrounds the house and we spent time there just soaking up the sun. I would definitely recommend Sea Shell Haven and we hope to visit again.

Relaxing Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful three day weekend here. Two families, with four children. The home was very comfortable and just a short walk to the beach. The beach was amazing: we found shells, shark teeth, sand dollars, and a starfish! Great bird watching too. Amazingly peaceful.
