Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We just came home a few hours ago from our magical week on your island. I am usually relieved to return home after a vacation but not this time. I am grieving to be away from our piece of paradise last week. Your unit was impeccably clean which we loved and steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches. We are already planning a return trip. Thank you so much❤

Peaceful Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent Memorial Day weekend and the following week at Linda's place on Little Gasparilla Island. In the words of my kids... "Best Vacation Ever!" Even on the holiday weekend, the beaches were uncrowded and the atmosphere was laid back and family friendly. We laid in the sun, hunted for shells and sharks teeth, swam with rays, paddled our canoe with dolphins and manatees and photagraphed the variety of wildlife on and around the island. With the state park just a short paddle away and fishing right from the dock the place was a nature lovers dream. The unit itself was perfect. The tasteful beach decor and open floor plan was inviting and functional. No detail was missed. The unit was equipped with everything for the perfect beach vacation, right down to the blender for Pina Coladas on the screened in porch. Wether you are a family looking to make some life-long memories or a couple looking to get away from it all, I couldnt recommend a better place. I know we found our little piece of paradise. Thanks Linda for sharing it with us! We will be back.

Loved this Wonderful Escape from the Winter

  • 5 of 5
As I was taking the ferry across to the island, I could feel the stress and worries leave me. I stepped onto the island and the world behind me seemed to disappear. The unit we stayed in offered every amenity we needed including a washer and dryer. We were steps to the beach and even closer was the heated, filtered, freshwater pool. The unit’s modern kitchen had everything there for cooking. A wonderful, quiet peace will envelop you on this island, and it is so private. Walking the beach and trails, you meet the friendliest people. But we also had to occasionally check in with the world. So having internet access was essential and appreciated. I highly, highly recommend this beautiful island and this unit. It is impeccably clean, very comfortable and has everything you need to forget about the world if only for a few days. We had left the harsh winter of the north, and it was a very welcome break. I’m thinking I might have to reserve the unit now for next year.

Our only complaint was we couldn't stay longer

Our only complaint was we couldn't stay longer
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week here in March and we couldn't have been happier!
The island is wonderfully quiet and peaceful, so if you want a party atmosphere you better bring you own.
The condo itself was spacious, bright, and sparkling clean..it had a large flat screen TV with DVD player and satellite TV, a spacious master bedroom with a very comfy king size bed and a nifty loft with two single beds and its own bathroom!
The brand new kitchen had every utensil you could think of, full size new stainless steel appliances,microwave and a pantry of spices and condiments.
The pictures we saw of the condo before we came did not do it justice.

There is a semi-private deck on the front of the condo and stationary BBQ's available in the yards...you just have to supply your own charcoal, so remember to buy some before you get over to the island. Your private deck with fully enclosed lanai is just off the kitchen!

The beach is a stones throw from the complex and has beautiful white sand mixed with shells. There is a heated pool on the property with a deep end of over 7 feet and a shallow end for the kids.

Something you should be aware of is that there are no cars, stores or restaurants on the island. You have to park your car and get there on the ferry that leaves the mainland on the hour and leaves the island on the half hour. So do all your shopping for everything you'll want before you go over to the island, or you'll find yourself going back and forth more than you'll want to (especially since, when you get there, you never want to leave!). They do provide large wheelbarrows to transport your belongings and supplies to your condos.

There is also a wide range of native fish you can fish for from the dock or you can rent a boat to do some deep sea fishing.

If you do decide to head to the mainland there are plenty of shopping centers and nice restaurants in the area.

My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we have already booked again for next year!

Quiet and Romantic

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted a short get-away to spend some time together. This is the place. The home was extremely clean and fully stocked with everything you need. The Publix grocery store is right down the road from the entrance before taking the ferry over to the private island. The area is very quiet, you have wi-fi connection and a screen balcony to relax at night and read a book. Enjoyed the pool area and beach time. We did a little fishing from the piers and caught a couple sunfish and grouper. Definitely recommend and would come back again. Thank you for sharing your property with us, this is our last night of serenity and we'll definitely miss it.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation in our undiscovered paradise, and I really appreciate your helpful review. Yes, this is one of the few places where you can fish off a dock in the bay and catch grouper, then walk a short distance west and swim at our sandy beach. Thank you for the feedback!

Seductive Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Exceptionally clean condo with new appliances and granite countertops. Most comfortable king bed of any place we have ever stayed. Location is unparalleled with easy beach access just steps away. We took romantic walks on the beach at sunset and then had drinks on the deck. Just a wonderful stay on a hidden gem of an island far from the crowds of most beach locations. Highly recommended for couples looking for romance.
