Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is an excellent bargain. My wife and I had a very relaxing time there, everything was as advertised and the owners were easy to work with on all details. We had a great time boating, and walking the beautiful beach. I will definitely look to rent this property again since we had such a relaxing, wonderful time! Thank you.

Time at Luna Sea

  • 5 of 5

I had a marvelous time at this camp. Definitely have done a lot of work on the inside and was very comfortable. The owner was incredibly friendly and very easy to work with.

Highly recommend this camp to anyone looking to relax and wants easy access to the water!

Perfect Chill Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and dog) spent 5 restful days here at the end of January. The fact that Little Gasperilla Island is not accessible by car made it all the more peaceful and magical. Be advised that there are no stores or restaurants, so if you didn't arrive by your own boat, you have to take the water taxi ($20 per couple each way) to the mainland for supplies. The cabin was very comfortable with all the modern creature comforts including working internet and cable TV. We were impressed with how well stocked the cottage was with food items and condiments. Having kayaks to use was a huge plus. Not much else to do but roam the secluded beaches and explore the dirt roads and interesting residences that dot this wonderful island. If you're looking for fast paced Florida with traffic and attractions, look elsewhere - but if you're looking for a chill getaway where you can enjoy nature and live in the lap of comfort, I could not recommend a better place than Carolyn's Waterfront Cabin.

Great quiet get away!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 4 nights at this cabin and it was excellent! The cabin is very well equipped with everything you need. It is very comfortable and quiet. There were only two of us but there would have been room for a couple more people. We really enjoyed the bar, sitting area, and deck below the cabin. We basically lounged there then ate, strolled to the beach, then ate and drank, lounged some more and so on and so on. The beach is great and a short walk. Very few people and lots of shells! We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was very helpful and showed us where everything was. The cabin is very clean and well kept and the outdoor shower is great. We plan to make this at least an annual retreat if not more!

Great Cottage with Breath-taking Views

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from spending a long weekend at this quaint beach cottage and am already working on planning my next trip. This house was perfect for a wonderful mother-daughter weekend and provided unlimited amounts of activities. We laughed at the idea that although we had nothing to do but relax the weekend seemed to fly by as we kept ourselves busy walking the beach, fishing in the ocean kayaks, watching the dolphins and manatee swim from the front porch, and of course watching the breathtaking sunset each evening. The seclusion of this island made it ideal for the perfect getaway and the location of the cottage was perfectly convienant as the boat taxi was able to drop us off right on the front porch. We spent so much time lounging on the beautiful deck taking in the view and watching the wildlife. The deck had a great outdoor swing, hammock, and array of lounge chairs to choose from for when we wanted to unwind. Although we spent the vast majority of our time outdoors, the inside of house was cozy and functional. It was complete with all the necessary kitchen appliances and utensils and in the evenings we could unwind is the cozy living room. Our favorite part might have been the XM radio that could be played throughout the cottage to add to the easy beach getaway feel of the cottage.
