You've searched, and you've searched to find the right place. Well, my friend, your search is over. You have found it! We are offering our private family home to renters who are looking for the very best. As part of Southwest Florida's barrier islands, Little Gasparilla Island is a 7 mile island of seclusion and privacy. As a bridge-less barrier island, accessible only by water taxi, Little Gasparilla has a fewer tourists, no high rises, and no crowds on the beach. Your vacation will be spent on the beach watching dolphins (occasional manatees) not crowds. Gotta love that! The fishing is superb from the beach or the dock. You can enjoy shelling, snorkeling, rafting, and one of our favorites, shark teeth collecting. Enjoy the sunset and then relax to the peace and serenity for the rest of the evening. No cars, no street lights, just stars for as far as you can see.
This new beachfront home (built in 2009) features 5 huge picture windows (in the main house) facing the Gulf of Mexico along with a sliding glass door that leads to a nice covered patio area to watch the ocean views and spectacular sunsets. The two adjoining rooms have sliding glass doors to enjoy the view also, bringing you out to the same covered patio. The kitchen is supplied with full amenities needed and the dining table sits up to 10. Rental includes WiFi, all linens, beach towels, and a free dock slip for your boat. You will have your own private 250 foot boardwalk (wear shoes, it gets hot) that leads you right to the beautiful clean white sandy beach in your own back yard. Now, that's a wow! Some rafts will be provided. All you need to bring are your groceries and your swimsuit. We are sure you will enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do. There is nothing else like it.
This is a very unique, well thought-out 3-bedroom home: the main house (1200 sq feet) consists of one bedroom (queen size) with a balcony over looking the ocean, bathroom with a nice walk-in shower, kitchen, dining room, bar, living room, laundry room with washer, dryer, and wash tub. The two attached rooms (450 sq feet, identical) each with one bedroom (queen size), one bathroom with shower/tub, pullout bed (double). Each room has a private entrance in the front and the back. The rooms are supplied with microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers, Tv's. This home is perfect for families or up to three different couples. Very private, very comfortable. (sleeps 10)
There are 2 water taxis that service the island. Golf cart rentals are available on the island for exploring, if you desire. If you choose to leave the island, 10 minutes away, there are charters available for fishing, an eight hole golf course, Kayak, canoe, and boat rentals are also available. There is plenty to see, plenty to explore. Plenty to do or just do nothing and relax.

We built this as a private family home. Since we are not able to occupy it as much as we would like too, we decided to rent it out so that others may enjoy it as much as we do.
We had a very lovely stay at this house over New Years. the house is in excellent condition and the view is amazing. we would definitely recommend it and hope to return one day.
Amazing vacation spot! We have stayed in this gorgeous home several times, and cannot wait to return. The house sits right on the ocean beachfront, with a view that is spectacular. We love the private, sandy beach because it is quiet and pristine - we have seen manatees and dolphins every time we visit. This spot is terrific for romantic getaways but we have had just as much fun on trips here with the kids. The house is well designed, with private suites allowing everyone their own space. The owners of this home are terrific - always professional, friendly and thoughtful. The island itself has no cars, at all, one of my very favorite things about going there. The water taxi is affordable and very convenient for jaunts to the mainland. We find that once we are there, we have no reason or desire to leave! I cannot say enough nice things about this particular beach house - it is brand new and has never been lived in, so everything is modern and clean. We love the expansive windows and sitting on the deck listening to the waves. If there was any constructive criticism to offer, I would - but we simply love everything about this beach getaway and highly recommend it. Bring champagne for morning mimosas!
