About Cynthia Dyrcz

Stan & I designed & built this house upon moving from up north 8 years ago as our future retirement home and ongoing vacation home for our family. Stan works as an Manufacturing Engineer in Gainesville 3 hours away and I am a retired teacher. Most of the year one or both of us are on the island in our house as well as our family members. My favorite things to do are making pottery/crafts and jewelry...reading...walking the beach for sea shells or fossils and gardening. Stan likes to fish and kayak. We have two adult sons and the youngest made us promise we would always keep the island house .

Fantastic location - lovely house

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from our trip to Little Gasparilla. First time to the island, but I'm sure not our last! So peaceful, slightly rustic, but close to civilization. Great fishing and beach combing. Great for family time. We brought our two dogs who had just as much fun. Cindy was great to work with - so accessible and accommodating. The house is very well stocked and furnished. Beds were very comfortable. Nice supply of beach toys and accessories so no need to bring your own. Another nice and unexpected touch was that she takes care to stock plenty of toiletry essentials and paper goods which is rare in my experience with other rentals, but very welcome in a location where everything must be brought in by boat.

The house will sleep up to 8, but is really more comfortable for four as that is really all that the living room will comfortably seat. Also, be aware that because of the open design, noise travels a lot, particularly for those in the upstairs loft room. Not a criticism, because the inside of the home is lovely, but an important point if you have those in your party who might be early or much later to bed or wake! There is also a glass paned set of French doors to the loft bedroom, which does limit privacy a bit. We thought the location was just perfect - equal distance between the beach and the dock. We rented the two kayaks and had much fun with them, both from the beach and out back in the mangroves. I would not hesitate to stay here again, both on the island, and at the Dolphin Pass house. Thanks agsin, Stan and Cindy!

Beautiful House inside and out!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house labor day weekend with another family. The house was more than accommodating for the 8 of us (4 of which are teen kids). We had a great time and loved the location half way between the beach and boat docks. Can't wait to stay here again in 2016.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six has been coming to LGI for the last six years. We absolutely love the island but had yet to find our "perfect" house. This house was the closest we've come! The proximity to the dock was great for accessing our boat or just for hanging out and fishing. The house is also close enough to the beach where you do not need a golf cart and can make several trips back and forth without it being a bother. The kitchen was, by far, the most stocked we have yet to experience and the grill outside was great! The kids room was great and I even had a spare room to get away to when my husband's snoring gets to be too much...a true vacation for me! lol! Overall we had a fantastic time in this beautiful house. Spent lots of time on the screened porch (a necessity for us...UNO and dominoes al fresco are two of our favorite vacation pastimes with the kiddos). We were lucky enough to catch a sea turtle nest erupting with little bobs headed for the water. A once in a lifetime experience! We loved it and will be back!

Great away !

  • 5 of 5

Being selfish I almost don't want to tell anyone about this little paradise as I am afraid it will eventually succumb to the touristy commerce like the rest of Florida. Its a little place we would love to keep a secret. Stan and Cindy are very accommodating genuine people who have opened up their paradise island home for all to share. Opening the doors in the cool morning making breakfast to serve in the screened porch while the Island music was playin in the background was true paradise. Quick easy walk to either the bay side or the beach, super quiet location with the only challenge being the planning for a stay on a boat access only island. The amenities were fantastic. 3rd trip to the Island and we will be back. A BIG THANKS TO CINDY & STAN

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as we had hoped.

We only live an hour South and I felt 1000 miles away.

The water the sun and sunsets are amazing.

The house was ideal...comfortable and easy.

It takes some planning - but it is the escape of a lifetime....

Our third trip to Stan & Cindy's was just as wonderful as our first two times. Our children and their families love it as much and made the long trip from Calgary to join us for a week. We walked miles, kayaked everywhere (even over an unsuspecting manatee) and saw the usual wildlife. Enjoyed the island library as always. I wouldn't change a thing.
