Escape the hustle/bustle ...Park your car on the mainland and ride our private ferry (no extra fee) to the most pristine and unspoiled beach in Florida. Our 2/2 fully furnished and immaculately cleaned condo awaits you. The best shelling, fishing, wildlife watching, and sunset gazing are steps from your door. Because the island is bridgeless, the beach and marina areas are only for the guests of the condos...so it is wide open without distraction. Just pack your swimsuit and plenty of sunscreen...you really wont need much else! Relax!!!
Best Fishing anywhere!
Cleanest beaches with old Florida Charm..no crowding, no parking issues, no solicitors...totally private!
We arrived on Little Gasparilla as novices, not knowing what to expect and thinking, "how bad can it be? No matter what, we'll be able to endure this for a month." Little did we know that we would have the time of our lives. We were immediately embraced by those who have been coming to the island for many years. They welcomed us on board the ferry for our first ferry ride to the island, helped us with our "stuff", and invited us to our first of many parties that very same day. The island is perfect for those who love the beach and the water and the warmth and the sun. As a northerner, even the coolest day on Little Gasparilla was delightful. We easily adapted to scheduling errands, trips to Publix, and other outings around the ferry schedule and that worked just fine. We took daily long walks/jogs on the beach. We collected numerous, wonderful shells with the intention of making wreaths after we arrived home. We'll see about that!! We left with wonderful memories and a firm intention of returning again and again. One caution - I believe this would be a difficult property and island to negotiate for people with disabilities.
We stayed here for Sprimg break, 2016. The property was ideal...perfect size for family of 5, super close to a beautiful beach, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The owners made everything a breeze, from booking to checking in and out. My only word of advice is to make sure you are familiar with the ferry hours ...it's free and very convenient but if you miss the last ferry to the island the alternatives are less than ideal. Also, make sure you rent your golf cart early. We were unable to get one once we got to the island since we didn't know to book ahead. I will say though that we walked everywhere and it was super fun to explore the island on foot.
It was our first visit to LGI and we had a blast! The condo was in great shape and had plenty of amenities! WHEN we go back we will certainly ask if the Loos' condo is available!
Our island stay was so relaxing and quite. After we took the 10 minute ferry over to the island and carted our belonging to our 2 story condo. And what a nice place it is, clean updated with everything you need for your stay. There is 3 beds (2 queens and a twin) and a full bath in the upper. With a king size in the lower bdrm also with a full bath in the lower. Ceiling fans and air conditioning kept the condo cool and comfortable. Below the unit the is a covered area with a table and chairs to socialize and relax some more. The beach is a very short 5 minute walk through the complex to a very nice quite beach. We found lots of shells, sand dollars, and more than 100 sharks teeth. Our 13 and 9 year old boys had a great time and were never bored while there. Since the only way onto the island is by ferry (no cars, bus, motorcycles of any kind) only residents and guests of those are on the island. Just so you know, there is also no stores, bars, restaurants of any kind on the island as well. All the people there were very friendly and helpful to give directions and advice on where things are and how to get there.
We had a great time and can't wait to come back again next year.
We returned to Hideaway for the first time in ten years having stayed there for a couple of winters previous to that. This development is a lot busier than it used to be and so I almost hesitate to present this review. :) The Loos condo was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities that one would require. It is an end unit which is a real plus with extra windows providing increased natural lighting. We had a wonderful time here during our one month stay. Tom and Rhonda are a pleasure to deal with.
We have stayed at Little Gasparilla Island several times over the years and the expierences were wonderful. In this unit the owners have made every effort to provide everything a visitor would need and more!! The kitchen provided everything we needed to fix our meals, TV's with cable, and a nice washer and dryer for our use. We found the unit to be exceptionally clean and ready for our arrival. We hope to return sometime. Be sure to stop by a grocery store and get all your food and personal items so you won't be bothered hopping the ferry to go to the mainland. Once you are settled in this condo, see the quiet beach and nice inground pool you won't want to leave!!!
