Why Tim Robinson chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with the peace and quiet, and the fishing is awesome.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy just laying in the hammock! No cars on the island. The only traffic is that of local golf carts.

Just what we were looking for

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful island house older but in working order loved the outside shower every day and the porch in the afternoon coming back from a fishing trip

Bout 100 yards to beach and bout same to the bayside dock where we kept our 21ft fishing boat

Fished the gulf 14 full days and could have done more but we needed a break

Have a freezer full of fish to take home

Beach is beautiful and great for shells and shark teeth

Only negatives boat dock does not have designated slips so often you would have to take another slip when coming back from fishing a bit frustrating to have to move your lines around and not all spots would accommodate out boat but there was always one available

No trash collection on island 2.50/ bag at marina we were able to work with that but if you have a few people you would end up making 2 trash hauls a week minimum

Some Locals burn trash on island and that smells and not good for environment

Best time EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to LGI with the sole purpose of looking at available real estate for sale. We rent this house (8918 Gulf St.) due to the lower cost, assumably because it was not beach front. Let me tell you, the beach is a measly one minute beautiful walk over a sandy trail, and your dock is even closer. It is a very narrow section of the island. The island is a step back in time and absolutely perfect. No cars, no crowds, just paradise! As for the rental itself, absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The price was very reasonable and the owner, Tim, was very easy to work with while I was planning for the trip. No email went unanswered - I would say never more than 30 minutes and I was hearing back from him. If that didn't work, I could have called him but I never needed to. The house is fully functional and I believe Tim is looking to do some updating this summer. If you're planning a trip and you want a nice place at a great price I'd consider this one for sure. We will be back!!

Great accessible cabin on beautiful Little Gasparilla Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Came with everything you need for a great vacation. Loved that it was a short walk from the beach and our kids loved the beach hear that was provided. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation away from the huddle and bustle of it all.

Fishing getaway

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean, the only downfall was the walk from docks to house, would of been nice to know especially with all the gear and groceries , better explanation of exact location of the home. Walked around until neighbor helped . Other then that it was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much .

Wonderful rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cottage! It was clean and nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the front porch was amazing!!

The beach was perfect and I found many lovely shells. My husband enjoyed the fishing on the inland side. We both enjoyed exploring the island on our golf cart rental.

Tim, who owns the cottage, was fantastic to work with. We highly recommend this rental and have wonderful memories of our vacation here.
