This 3/2 cottage has recently been updated and will accommodate two families. The unique Crab Trap is a sleeping area for a young child. This is a great location with a stunning view of Gasparilla Sound and it's majestic sunrises. A private dock out the front door provides a perfect place to catch local fish and spy on the fascinating underwater life. Turning on the dock lights at night provides a glimpse into what could be called a snook aquarium. While being located on the bay, there is a leisure block and a half stroll to the beach. Swimming, strolling, collecting shells and sun bathing are a few of the relaxing activities available once you reach the white sandy beaches.
Upon returning to the cottage from your day at the beach, enjoy rinsing off in the refreshing outdoor shower. Then soak in the views of the dolphin jumping in the bay while relaxing on the screened in porch and realize just how blessed you are.
The full sized kitchen is ready for use with a refrigerator, oven/stove, dishwasher, coffee pot and microwave. It is also stocked with dishes and other necessary utensils.
Linens and towels are supplied for your convenience.
Pirate's Water Taxi 941.697.5777 is the main mode of transportation to and from the island if you do not have a personal watercraft. Normal business hours are 8:30am - 5:00pm. There is a fee of $20 minimum one-way (this covers 2 people and luggage), with each additional person costing $10. The captain will run after hours if previously scheduled at an increased rate. This service runs out of Eldred's Marina where parking is available for $6/night.
My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.
Paris Cousins purchased this cottage in 2012
If you love to fish or desire a great view of Gasparilla Sound, this is the place. The fishing is fantastic on the private dock. At night, you can turn on the light and see what looks like your own snook aquarium. The dock also makes it easy to unload you luggage and then kick back and relax.
The long private dock in front of this cottage has made the neighbors jealous for years.
Fantastic views of Gasparilla Sound and breathtaking sunrises each morning are seen from the screened-in front porch.
Miles of sandy beaches are a short walk away.
We very much enjoyed our visit and our stay. I have nothing but the highest praise for this beautiful piece of Little Gasparilla Island. We caught snook and trout. Took in some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, plenty of dolphins, manatees, and numerous other wild life. Will hopefully be back again next year.
Excellent Home! Excellent Private Dock! The Most Desired part of the Island, Quite and Clean! We will Return!!! Tuttle Family
My husband and I and our little dog Ozzie enjoyed "Dock Envy" during the months of January and February. Last year we stayed during the month of January. Having stayed for a total of three months, I feel it is truly my home away. We brought a boat this year and were able to tour the inland water way to the north and headed south to Cabbage Key. We also enjoyed fishing and relaxing on the dock and taking long walks on the beach. Our dog Ozzie is a great swimmer and entertained many onlookers with his stamina. I'm convinced he's currently going through LGI withdrawals. Truly an enjoyable stay.
Always a great time at dock envy! Prime location, big clean house stocked with everything you need for a beach location. The dock is great for night time fishing, and easy access to eldreds and other surrounding marinas/ locations. Very close to the pass, so getting out into the gulf is a piece of cake ! Paris makes the process stress free from start to finish! This was not our first time there and I hope it won't be our last ! There's nothing like a week on LGI!!!!
This house has convenience (no lugging items far from dock,) awesome views of the bay, the most helpful neighbors and great fishing!
You won't regret staying here!!
I booked this house for the reason of a private dock and to be on the bay side. This was a great house, great location and wonderful owners. It meet all my expectations and look forward to coming back next year.
Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.
