Overview

Little Gasparilla Island Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous sunsets and pristine beaches. 2 bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths.

NEW TO THE MARKET - FIRST TIME BEING OFFERED FOR RENT!!! GULF FRONT 2 BEDROOMS AND 2-1/2 BATHS!

DIRECTLY on the GULF of MEXICO, very nice two bedroom two and one-half bath townhouse. Located on the BEACH with dockage, tennis court and a fantastic gulf front pool! Fabulous, expansive gulf views. There is a screened porch on the main level, and an upstairs balcony off of the master bedroom. All of the appliances are in very nice condition, as well as new paint, laminate floors – with well equipped bathrooms and an easy to use kitchen with a full snack bar. Fully equipped and ready for your enjoyment. Other new items include, flat screen televisions, quaint artwork, most of the furniture, kayak, linens and towels, kitchen equipment, glassware, plates, silverware, etc. The list goes on and on! Also includes cable television and wireless internet access. Please inquire for more details and specifics about this great gulf front vacation rental.

No crowds here, just miles of unspoiled, 100% natural Florida (the way it used to be!). World renowned shelling, fantastic sunsets, bird watching galore, kayaking, dolphins, gopher tortoise, and a lively lagoon where fish jump all day long. Don Pedro State park is a short walk down the beach. You’ll want to capture the Island’s charm by traveling via golf cart, we rarely use cars here. Golf cart rental is available.

Bring your boat or rent one for the ultimate in Florida lifestyle. Our community dock will accommodate a boat up to 22 feet. Like to fish? Fish right off the dock or try your luck surf fishing or book a charter with one of the local guides for a thrilling day of sport fishing or backwater challenges. Trout, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon and Grouper are just a few of the many species that call our waters home.

Don Pedro Island (aka Palm Island) is a barrier island and a stones throw from the mainland. You’ll arrive via a short car ferry ride that takes about three minutes. Our island has a terrific resort that offers a casual restaurant, ice cream/deli shop, sundries store and a pirate show for the kids. The island is almost all single family homes so you’ll quickly find it has a pristine 'non-commercial' family feel. There are no large high-rise resorts, beach bars or traffic and noise. If you’re looking for that place in the sun that you can actually hear the wind whistle through the palms - you’ve found your place.

Off island you’ll be close to restaurants, shops, golf courses and world famous Boca Grande as well as other attractions. As we like to say... civilization is close but not too close. Boca Grande offers exclusive shopping, dining and sightseeing. By boat you can reach Cayo Costa Island State Park and Cabbage Key where Jimmy Buffet was inspired to write 'Cheeseburger In Paradise.' Do it all, or do nothing at all, that’s the “island” lifestyle. It’s laid back, always casual (leave your tie at home) and Florida at its best.

Sleeps six comfortably. No smoking. Pets allowed with owner's permission and additional pet deposit. Spacious, open floor plan. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice screened porch that opens into the living room. Master bedroom with private bath and beachfront balcony.

Don Pedro/Palm Island is an experience like no other. Come to our island and see why so many have fallen in love with this little 'slice' of paradise!

About Owner/Manager

We live in New Jersey and have been traveling to the Gulf Coast beaches for our recreation and vacations for over 10 years. The boating is fantastic and our time with our family has created a bunch of fond memories for us. Most Florida beaches are overbuilt and congested – it's hard to find a beach with so few people and so underdeveloped. Quite refreshing to say the least. We chose Don Pedro Island (Palm Island) for the natural beauty and 'Old Florida' feel. This chain of islands just may be the last true Florida beach you can walk down (7 miles long) and hardly see another person. We also liked that there are no beach bars and no high-rise buildings. It is the best of Old Florida, natural, unspoiled and a genuine paradise.

Owner/Manager purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Owner/Manager chose Little Gasparilla Island

We decided to purchase a home here for the unspoiled beauty of the island and the area in general. Englewood is a low-key Old Florida 'beach town' that reminds you of how Florida looked many years ago, without the huge high-rise condominiums and massive hotels clogging the beach. There are plenty of local 'home-grown' shops and restaurants and the fishing is some of the best in world. The beaches are fantastic and the boating is world-class. If you are looking for a great family area that is close to everything, but far away from the congestion, traffic and noise, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place. The only way to get on and off the island is by a 3 minute car ferry ride. Having no bridge to the island allows for a semi-private atmosphere and keeps beach going traffic to an absolute minimum. The island is all residential other than the resort area at the north end of Palm Island which offers a quality restaurant, deli and ice cream shoppe and small convenience store. Most all of the island traffic is by golf cart.

What makes this townhome unique

Staying on the island is not for everyone. If you like lots of places to shop, tourist attractions, beach bars and chain restaurants, this isn't the place for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for uncrowded and unspoiled beaches, great kayaking, fishing and dipping your toes in the Gulf of Mexico, this may be just the place. It's for a couple or family that wants some serious down-time ... a place to unplug and recharge your batteries and enjoy some great family time. Our house is pet-friendly with laminate floors and carpet upstairs, with two Gulf Front porches along with a smaller deck downstairs. You'll also enjoy the community pool and tennis courts if you're so inclined. We are also the end unit with some great views of the pool area and added privacy. The beach is right out your door and literally steps to the Gulf of Mexico! It's a truly amazing place.

Our stay on Palm Island

  • 4 of 5

Your place is very nice and very clean. We should not have rented the golf cart since we did not travel to the main land often and the difference in cost is only $22 in ferry charges. The 3rd floor bedrooms were more steps than our age was comfortable with. Rum Bay food was great. Great location by the pool and tennis courts. Very quiet and the girls said the shelling was wonderful!

Owner's Response: Jim, Glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes great shelling and yes a few steps up, when you are staying on the gulf the houses are build on pilings, but a great view. The golf cart is not necessary, but some guest prefer to get around that way while staying on the island. Thanks for staying at License to Chill.

Don Pedro Done Especially For You

  • 5 of 5

Don Pedro Island is not for everyone, but this condo is. Enjoy unparalleled, "in your face" direct gulf views of the beautifully colored water, a fresh and clean condo with new furnishings, and new baths with tile and granite. Relax in quiet solitude at License To Chill. The owner is attentive to your needs and wants (rent her golf cart and tour the island and visit the island's restaurant), or sit gulf-side in peaceful bliss as the world rolls by elsewhere. Tennis is right across the street and the pool is adjacent to the condo. We visited in mid February to appreciate both the escape from the northeast's winter grip as well as our comfortable and relaxing stay at the condo. Thank you Diane!

Paradise- condo perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The beach was never crowded. The water was almost 90 degrees. I am from NorCal so you can appreciate that. This corner unit is great and right next to the pool. The owners are really cool and easy to deal with. The inside was open and plenty of room for all of us and guests.The kids really liked to camp downstairs on the sleeper and watch TV.

Chilling upstairs on the master balcony at sunset was awesome.(AC cranks !!!)

The unit comes with everything you need. Kayak is a bonus. Golf cart rental is a must.

All in all a 5 star vacation we are "FOR SURE" going back to PI ans this condo.!!!!!

Stoked Guest !!!

Sun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this townhouse in June and had a wonderful time. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken. It felt like a real luxury to have the beach and the pool were right outside our door. We had a great time exploring the beach looking for shark teeth, spotting dolphins, swimming, watching all kinds of birds and touring the island by golf cart. The water was incredibly clear and refreshing. We also enjoyed being able to grill our meals on the BBQ - allowing us to spend even more time outdoors.

The house is beautifully decorated and well equipped, which made our stay effortless and extremely comfortable - nothing seems to be missing! We also slept amazingly well - the mattresses were great and felt like they must have been brand new.

My favorite parts of this vacation were watching the sunset from the deck and falling asleep to the sound of waves rolling onto the nearby shore. This is definitely a great place to relax and unwind - a true get-away! I hope to be back to refresh again soon!

Barefoot Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean with a well equipped kitchen for cooking. Steps to the pool and beach. No crowds here on this secluded island! I enjoyed walking to the state park. Shelling was great. Using the golf cart to get around on the island was fun. Sunsets were a great end to wonderful day and beginning of a quiet night.

Gulf front at Don Pedro Island
Car: recommended

Located on Don Pedro Island. Access to the island is by car or passenger ferry only which allows for some of the most pristine natural Florida beaches you will ever encounter. One of the last true beach front areas that has not been overdeveloped - a true 'old florida' experience like no other.
