Come see what island life is like on Little Gasparilla Island and experience island living in this beautiful condo! Start your getaway with a short ferry ride across the Intracoastal Waterway to the Hideaway Bay Beach Club. Our unit is only a stones throw from the ferry landing, boat dock and swimming pool. Seven miles of pristine beaches await you along the Gulf of Mexico; just a few minutes walk through the complex.
On Little Gasparilla, you will find a slower lifestyle that will refresh the soul and recharge the batteries. This unit is actively used by the owners so you will find it lives and feels like a home and not a rental unit.
On the island: Seven miles of pristine beaches offer ideal shelling conditions. Fish for snook, redfish, pompano and tarpon. Watch dolphins frolic and reach out and touch the occasional manatee. Swim, dive or boat in the bay or the Gulf, or both.
So impressed with the island, property, and home rental! Place was a little dated but overall very clean and comfortable. It included many amenities, which made our stay much easier. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were fully equipped. There were even seasoning items, paper towels, and toilet paper. Enough linens and comforters. There were about 7 nice sized beach towels, 4 beach chairs, like-new stacked washer and dryer, radio, and flat screened television. Arrival was made easy. Must board ferry at 12000 Placida Rd. at Hideaway Beach Club Owners (Google Maps). Fill out car registration, which is located in little hut. Put decal on car, which parking is directly across the street. Load belongings on carts that are provided there and wait for ferry. Ferry runs every two hours, make sure you have everything you need so you won't have to go back to mainland. Publix is only a 3-4 miles from ferry. But other than that, everything else is about 20-30 minutes away. Unit A-6 was spacious and comfortable and Scott was great to work with. We rented a golf cart from LGI Carts #941-697-3820, and Deric was awesome. He delivered cart with no hassle and very affordable ($50/day). The unit is next to pool, ferry launch, and marina. Very convenient, including wifi from pool building that we were able to access from almost everywhere. Beach is a little bit of a walk, so the cart came in handy for carrying all beach essentials. We had a blast and would rent again!!!!!
We had a wonderful vacation on Little Gasparilla Island. The condo was perfect for the two of us and there is certainly room for at least two more people. It is conveniently located near the pool and a quarter mile walk from the beach. The owners provided us with everything we needed including plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, outdoor charcoal grill, and the basic necessities for the kitchen and baths. The entire condo was clean and well-maintained. Although we didn't use the second floor bedroom, we found it spacious and light and appealing. The beach was wonderful; clean sand and clear blue/green water. No crowds! Just a few friendly people!
The property had convenient amenities like a pool, ice, ferry, and docks. A quick walk or golf cart ride to the beach and great fishing. The property was clean, well maintained and the owner was very easy to do business with. I appreciated the rest and relaxation!
Condo directly across from the pool. Very clean condo. Short walk to beautiful beach. New washer and dryer. Condo is equipped with all the kitchen utensils you will need. Very happy with our stay there!
Scott is a terrific host. His communications regarding the rental were always timely. Very nice condo that is well maintained. We've already signed up for next year.
Great place to get away from it all but but an easy and convenient ferry ride when you do need to return to the real world whether it be just for groceries, a day trip, or a taste of night life. Unit is very clean and well equipped for cooking, dining, sleeping, and taking care of everyday needs such as laundry. Great fishing from the nearby dock or the nearby ocean, fabulous sunsets, great shell and shark teeth hunting. Tons of wildlife, osprey, bald eagles, turtles, porpoises, pelicans, and much more. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an escape from the crowds and traffic.
Nearby: The mainland and world famous Boca Grande are a short boat ride away. There you will find fishing guides, boat rentals, restaurants, golf, nightlife, shopping, and sight seeing.
