Shopping, golf and many fine restaurants are close by on the mainland.
I find nothing more relaxing than being near the water, and my home and vacation cottages are all just steps away. Just retired after 31 years in education, I am looking forward to more time in 'Paradise'!
Patti Workman purchased this cottage in 2002
About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible only by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our cottage the next day. We have loved every minute we spend on the Island and enjoy sharing our vacation paradise with others. Many repeat guests are creating family traditions at 'Miss Patti's' cottage.
Sitting down and trying to get back in touch with real life after a great week in your quiet corner o the world. Just what we had in mind and made great by your careful, clear instructions and your attention to providing for every day-to-day need at the house. The house was spotless when we got there and everything from the grill to a flashlight (which I forgot) worked, no small thing to produce from a distance.
Thank you. We loved it.
We truly enjoyed our visit to LG. Patti was wonderful to work with and to chat with as well. Had forgotten some toiletries to bring no problem she came and dropped them off. Home was perfect and so close the beautiful swimming beach. Sunsets were gorgeous, had fun renting a golf cart and talking to our neighbors. O and of coarse relaxing.
Paradise found was an amazing beach house! It was very clean, the air conditioning was excellent specially on the hot Florida summer! The beds were very comfortable (I would have prefer a bigger bed in the main room) and clean. It was great having a washer and dryer to do a few loads during our stay ;) my kids loved playing with the beach toys and boogie boards. Thank you so much for sharing your beach cottage with our little family, paradise found was the perfect house for us and we hope we come back next year!
Couldn't have asked for anything better, we had a wonderful vacation .. we will back!
Well maintained and very courteous property owner. Highly recommend.
We love Little Gasparilla Island, and Patti's Paradise Found was perfect for our getaway. The house was easy to find and get to from the dock especially with Patti's thorough directions. The gulf view from the balcony off both bedrooms was stunning and the grille on the front balcony was perfect for family dinners. The house provided everything we needed for a great trip and recommend it.
My husband and I went to Little Gasparilla Island to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. My husband had never been to the island and I had never stayed at this location. It turned out to be perfect! My husband fell in love with the island and I was very happy with the house! The house and all the amenities were just as Patti said they would be. It was so relaxing and beautiful. The location of the house was convenient and was equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed it so much that my husband is ready to book next year's vacation. Thank you for your hospitality and professionalism!
