'GET AWAY FROM IT ALL' and come relax and enjoy the 'ISLAND LIFE' in our waterfront home on Little Gasparilla Island. Seven miles of secluded white sand beaches on an Island with no roads, only sand paths to explore. Access is by boat only.
Our cottage is situated between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway - the third house in from either direction. We are on the narrow part of the Island, so the water is just steps away in either direction. Perfect for the beach lover, boater or fisherman - something for everyone in your family.
A private dock just outside your door provides convenient access to your own boat or water taxi. There are lanais on three sides of the home for relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views.

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'!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004
About ten years ago we heard of a 'Little Island' that was accessible by boat. After a little research we found it, made a trip down from NJ and purchased our first cottage the next day. In 2004 we found this cottage and now have two. 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.
It has a lovely cottage feel. Tidy and well appointed. Large deck space with a nice view of the canal and about 200 steps to the beach. Very easy load in and out. The owner is very helpful.
We had a great time on LGI again. Paradise Too is perfect for our family of 4. We love sitting on the screened in deck in the morning drinking our coffee and tea. We even got to enjoy the one day of "winter" with lows in the 40's (of course at home we won't likely have highs in the 40's for a few months). The beach was awesome again and my biggest concern is too many people figure out how nice it is and it gets crowded!
Patty is great to work with, super flexible and responsive.
Our only complaint this year is no dolphins came by the beach when we were out there.
Very nice quiet place for a vacation. Great if you have your own boat since you can have it right by the house. Owner is very friendly and helpful.
Our stay was just what we hoped and more!!! The house was very comfortable and had all the amenities for a vacation home away from home.
I have lived in the Florida all my life and this was my first time to LGI. A great hidden taste of paradise. The sunsets, beach , sand bars, shelling and fishing were the perks of our 6 day stay. We had a fishing charter with one of the "Best" guides in the area Captain Sam . We went to Cabbage Key, this is a must, best cheese burger ever.
A day trip to Boca Grande and rented a golf cart for the day and toured the island was so worth it.
The best part of our stay was being so relaxed away from the busy lives we lead,
We will definitely be back next summer!!!
Thank You !!
We stayed 5 nights, had a great relaxing vacation. Loved the options of having our boat 20 Ft. away on the seawall dock, and having beautiful gulf beach and clean gulf water 250 yds. away. Rented a golf cart and explored the entire island to Don Pedro State Park. Loved the fact that it was very peaceful and relaxing without the hustle and bustle of big crowds. Cruised to Johnnie Leverocks for a great lunch, and to Cabbage Key for another day trip in the boat. Loved just hanging out on the sandbars around the local islands! We will be back next year!
We have been coming to LGI for eight years, and "Paradise Too" has been our favorite place to stay by far! We loved being on the canal, and the walk to the beach is only a couple of minutes. You can unload right from the water taxi, which saves a number of trips in a golf cart or having to haul your things. The house has everything you need and more! After staying at so many houses on the island over the years, this house was the most equipped. My 14 year old son and his friend loved fishing from the dock and beach, and used the fish cleaning station. They caught many types of fish over the week from the canal, the bay, and the beach. Patti's neighbor Mike was super friendly and an avid fisherman like the boys. Patti is terrific to work with and always responded quickly to questions I had regarding the house. She is also the BEST owner I have worked with in all of my years on the island. We will definitely be back!
