Little Gasparilla Island is a hidden paradise located between Ft. Myers and Sarasota. Our fully furnished, excellent located home is on an island that is only accessible by private boat or water taxi. There are no formal commercial establishments on the island such as restaurants or grocery stores. There are no paved roads on the lsland, only miles of sandy trails flanked by tropical foliage. Take long leisurely walks or travel by golf cart down these paths to explore the beauty of the island. The peaceful, uncrowded beach provides plenty of room for you to bathe in the sun all day, enjoy outstanding shelling, bird watching, swimming, snorkeling, playing with your children, and beautiful water views but the best of all, the brilliant sunsets that ends a perfect day. There is great fishing to be had by all that drop a line. Snook, Trout, Redfish, Snapper and more, in the world famous Boca Grande Pass you can try your hand at Tarpon fishing. GLI is the ideal place to get way from the mainland madness. and unwind in a secluded tropical paradise. If none of that can get you off the couch, there is always cable.....

We built our dream house in 1991. It took us only one hour on the island before we knew LGI was for us. The first day on the island we bought property. (and they said I couldn't spend money were we were going!)Then built our dream home.
I guess it was the luck of the Irish!!
Bonnie Varon purchased this house in 1991
The minute you step off of the dock you will know you have found the best kept secret in the southwest Florida area. Old Florida You can hear birds chipping, see turtles crawling down the beaten path and Golf carts buzzing around the island as everyone enjoys the sights, sounds and freedom of the island.
Get away from the rat race of the hectic world as we know it today. There is a hush not heard on the mainland. Once you arrive on the island you are on island time... slow and relaxed.
My family and I loved Bonnie's beach house. The beach house provided everything you could possibly need to have a great time on Little Gasparilla Island. The beach house was located in a perfect spot and only a short walk to the beach on the gulf side, or a short walk to the bay side. We loved the beach and were able to relax and enjoy the island. My wife and I and two teenage boys felt that the beach house had plenty of room and it never felt crowded. I enjoyed the large screened in porch and hammock immensely!! If you’re in to Kayaking, Bonnie provided Kayaks to paddle around the bay. It was so peaceful and relaxing, we loved the Islanders that we ran into on the island, and they were very nice and helpful. My wife loved the fact that the beach house had a full washer and drier and all the things you need in the kitchen. Bonnie's check-in and Check-out process was easy and she answered all my questions before we got to the island. I will recommend Bonnie's beach house to all my friends and family or anyone that is looking for a nice relaxing place to stay. I'm thinking about how fast I can return for another trip right now as I'm writing this!!
The house was exactly as we expected: clean, with a lot of room, fully furnished and very comfortable, yet with that air of Island Cottage. With amenities such as table games, sattelite HD TV, and BBQ Grill ( needs little upgrade). A full kitchen to ready to preapare any kind of food and drinks; and a very spacious porch to enjoy family time at nights. The tap water perfectly drinkable but a slightly salty, you should consider bring your bottled water. Located in the center of the island steps from a wonderful beach were all and specially the kids enjoyed the included Kayak! We had a wondeful time and it's a place you could come back again and again!
We had a great vacation! The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. We will definitely come back again!
We loved how big and clean the bathrooms were. The layout was perfect for my family. The couches were comfy. The recliner was a hit. The oven was nice so we could cook meals. We hung out on the screen porch mostly. The blinds could use some updating as they were falling apart or not working which caused a lot of heat to come into the house, no privacy and sunshine too early in the am. Otherwise the owners were very accommodating to us. The house was centrally located to the beach and docks as well as the island. Enjoyed our stay. We will be back.
We stayed here for 10 days last month and had an excellent time. The house was very clean and everything we needed was there to enjoy the house and beach. Bonnie was very nice to deal with while setting up the rental and everything went smooth. We would highly recommend renting this house on LGI, we have stayed in many and this was one of the nicest. Just a heads up for boaters, currently the dock does not have power or water, this was an issue for us with charging our batteries. We heard there are plans to rebuild the dock soon though.
Very clean home! Is great spot for a romantic couples get away and or family fun filled vacation! The home owners was very personable and very accommodating. We was here last year and booking our trip for this year! Thank you.
Long walks on the beach...Quite afternoons in the hammock...Relaxing reading on the porch...
